He always felt semi-usable for a farmable. The best part is, there’s still time to skill him up during 2x drops in Shinrabansho on Sunday (we’ll almost certainly get 2.5x the next event, too). Luckily, I already paid my dues the last time the event came around:
After I cleaned out my box to make space for 10x, he was one of the few trash drops that I decided to keep which is fortunate. Now I just gotta uevo, level and awaken him; the +eggs are already taken care of, I’d hope. If Masterion really becomes a thing, I could see players feeding their old Zeus Stratios to him.
Let’s not overreact here, but in all seriousness, if you’re determined to be at the forefront of the game — especially if you already own a Yomi Dragon — it’s probably worth skilling one up. Arena 2 hasn’t been out for even a day yet so there will certainly be better teams for it by the time NA gets it — we don’t even know what the rest of the new MP Dragons will be like yet — but we may not get Shinrabansho again for another year (although it seems to be a half-yearly thing) so it’s better to be safe than sorry.
For other players, at least picking one up is a good idea as you’ll probably only need his gravity for the boss floor. You’d only want a skilled one for extremely fringe purposes, like trying to come back from an unlikely Kagutsuchi delay or to possibly help against resolves.
A few more notes:
- It appears Lucifer, along with all true damage monsters, got some added value. Luci’s god killer also looks to be clutch. It looks like he’s going to be one of the best overall REM monsters in the game.
- Monsters with dark resists, or any type of resist at all, become more attractive. Ark in particular looks like he could be useful, especially since the Shinrabansho silvers got another round of buffs.
- One amusing point for Yomi Dragon teams is that Masterion enables the use of the team’s light sub-element through his single light orb enhance.
I wish JP luck in clearing out the new Arena and I’m looking forward to ripping off all their hard-earned team ideas.
