We’re back with part 2 of this reimagining of a well-beloved manga/anime, and hey, it’s getting a bit better after whatever mess happened in the first part. Seiya is still bland as heck but it’s understandable for a standard MC of an animated series that’s supposed to be for those under 12 years of age.
Oh, by the way, the Dragon Saint just poked his own eyes out.
Chrome Breaker is a lot of things. Shoujo art style, shounen plot, religious themes, Chrono Crusade vibes but Azmaria is the MC… but in the end it’s one of my childhood manga that I only got the chance to finish when I’m 21. Yep.
So I will start with what all of you are here for: the ending spoilers and a summary of what happened in volume 4. Take note that volume 3 sold out in my country with no chance of reprint and I have no luck hunting for second hands, so chapter 11-13 is lost to me.
In this post, I will go over the pros and cons plus the role of every single hero released in the game as of Jan 2021, along with a few notes on some of them. I will try to keep it brief so you can decide who to build.
(Side note: I consider myself a casual late game player, even though I’ve been playing since Sep 2016 in the open beta. Some stuff I put here may be outdated due to newer balance patches, although most of them should hold true. If you want super-specific builds or tips on how to be competitive in the rankings, please go to the community for that.)
Thailand was famous among travelers for pirating famous movies and selling CDs/DVDs for 0.60 USD or less. The anime/manga portion of the country suffered no less, with pirated anime sites still amok. Although this has gotten better in recent years, with Thai scan groups and fansub groups actively deleting titles which had been licensed, we still see illegal circulation of some titles from time to time.
Here is the question though: why?
I’m no expert on this issue, but I used to be part of the problem and I’ll give my take on it.
This guide covers heroes that can erase enemy buffs.
Latest update: 8/11/2020
‘Skill’ means that the ability to cleanse is innate, you have the skill = you can dispel. ‘Transcendence’ means that you have to choose a certain perk to get the dispel. Lastly, ‘unique treasure’ means that you need to select that particular treasure as your main unique treasure for the dispel to activate.
Removing enemy buffs is useful in PvP and certain bosses. Heroes that are easy to use will be bolded.
Notes: Usually seen in Eclipse. Idk why I don’t see people use her very much.
Def type: Magic
Features: P dmg boost, M def boost, CC, Atk boost (SW), P block reduction (UT1), Shield + cleanse & CC immunity, Atk debuff, M block boost (all allies, T5 dark)
Key features: M def/block boost, shield
Niche: PVE, WB2, PvP
Auto: Not recommended (PvP) Ok-ish (PvE)
Notes: NPC at Orvel Castle. Versatile physical tank. Prioritize getting Loman (& Gladi) for NPCs since Loman gives discount on world boss artifacts. For PvP, build with mana recovery or use the teardrop artifact so he can cast his shield at the beginning of the game.
Def type: Magic
Features: Heal rate reduction, M Def + M block boost (all allies), M def debuff (transcendence)
Key feature: Heal rate reduction (can go up to 100%)
Niche: Bosses, esp. WB3 (Xanadus) and Galgoria
Notes: Most notable for her flame stacks, which can deal a lot of damage and reduce heal rate. Needs a while to stack. Stacks faster with more block. T5 dark recommended. Also increases team survival.
Def type: –
Features: 1 extra life, M dmg boost, self recovery, CC
Key feature: M dmg boost
Niche: General PVE
Notes: Good self-reliant starter tank, better dmg boost for entire team, usable in WB3, very general and newbie friendly.
If you want to use her in PVP, use kamikaze Jane where you get her RIP dark and send her in without armor so she dies first. This is not recommended unless you have a second tank or you’re confident your DPS can take out the other team in 3 seconds.
There’s also a DPS Jane build, which relies solely on her 3rd skill where she sucks more blood the more damage she deals. I’ve tried this and it’s not recommended unless your Jane is highly invested (she easily gets 1-hit KO).
Notes: Very good in WB1. Can do a lot of things and can greatly increase your DPS’s ability to deal damage.
Def type: All
Features: CC, Atk Spd reduction, Atk/P def/M def boost (all allies), Atk debuff, M Def debuff, damage reduction (T5 dark, all allies excluding self), Atk spd boost (self)
Key feature: Def boost for all allies
Niche: General PVE
Notes: Nicknamed Magic Clause for his def boost. Some Atk spd recommended because he’s a show-off and his skill animations are a bit long. Otherwise just go all def. Recommended tank if your team dies easily, doesn’t buff really your damage. S2 is very useful.
Def type: All
Features: Atk/P def/M def boost (self), M def debuff, CC, M dmg boost
Key feature: CC stun
Niche: PvP wall deck, also usable in regular stage PvE and Knight labyrinth
Auto: Ok-ish (?)
Notes: DPS-style tank, self-reliant but not as much as Jane. Can be used in P teams although it’s not recommended. Key feature is her stun. Build with all HP.
Def type: All (more on P def)
Features: Atk/Def boost, P block boost, silence (SW), shield (SW), CC resist boost (all allies), stop mana recovery, M block reduction (S1 dark), heal rate boost/reduction (UT1), CC
Key feature: Def boost, CC resist boost, CC
Niche: PvP (physical team counter)
Auto: Not recommended
Notes: NPC at Tower of Challenge. Suitable for speed burst magic teams, counters physical teams.
The boob-sword is back in the new anime edition of the hot mobile game King’s Raid. (Seriously, the developer team re-designed this sword so that the players won’t call it the boob-sword anymore! Why is it this again?!)
On a more serious note, I’ve been blogging this game for a while (and been playing the game since 2016) so I’m glad to go back to anime blogging for King’s Raid: Successor of the Will.
