BURN BABY BURN! This list of Fire Elemental Fighters will judge what the 3 best choices for Diamond evolution are, 3 Decent ones, and the others that struggle to hold onto practicality. Possible Fire Element Diamonds: Dragon Brawler, Number One, Beat Box, Private Dick, Harlequin, Immoral Fiber, Scarlet Viper, Red Velvet, Frayed Ends, Parasite Weave, Blood Drive, Firefly, Sheltered, Rerun, Dead Heat, Oh Mai and Pyro-Technique. Best Choices: Spoiler: Harlequin Harlequin Cerebella is quite fantastic as a candidate for Diamond evolution. Her CA allows you to bait out throws and stagger, this protects you from BB3s. Her Marquee Ability also allows her to remove meter from enemies and prevent them from BB3ing her on a whim. Diamonds Are Forever is still capable of devastating damage, and she’s been given a generous stat spread that can only be furthered through Diamond Evolution. Her Special Move damage and Cooldown Reduction are both great; HQ will still reliably assist you in slamming potential enemies down with brute force. Spoiler: Private Dick PD Big Band has risen to one of my top choices for Diamond evolution; he excels in Durability, Resistance, and the potential to Stunlock. In this current version, the chance of getting BB3ed is absolutely massive. Survivability has become a top priority; Survivability can be achieved by reducing meter gain, stunning, or simply having the bulk to survive anything that comes your way. Big Band's Marquee Abilities make him even harder to kill, so if you’re having an off-day, and mess up; PD will survive a few BBs and come out intact. Spoiler: Pyro-Technique Applies 2 stacks of Wither on successful charge attack. Gains Enrage when attacking an enemy with a fully depleted Blockbuster *need actual portrait & SA* Pyro Technique’s potential is still generally unknown. On paper though, Pyro-Technique has shot up to being one of my top few picks out of the Fire Fighter List. According to the 2.5 update, BB3 management will most likely become CRUCIAL to many player's playstyles. This is all speculation though, not entirely sure how often the AI will decide to BB3 you out of the blue. As a Valentine, her regular damage is pretty low, but you can utilize Countervenoms to remedy this. Diamond Tier will certainly benefit her by granting her more ATK to play with. Decent: Spoiler: Dragon Brawler Dragon Brawler’s SA is a bit lackluster. He requires a lot of investment to be considered good, and you won’t be killing enemies with BBs often enough to take advantage of the 2nd part the SA. He’s good for mid-low streaks, but struggles in the higher ones. Spoiler: Scarlet Viper Ouch, that Eliza nerf hits Scarlet's infinite/stagger capability, and now players will have to strategically plan out their Sekhmet BBs accordingly. On the bright side, she can now taunt cancel multiple stacks of bleed away with little risk. Overall, decent SA that grants quick stacks of bleed. With enough practice, you can make her a very solid carry. Spoiler: Red Velvet Red Velvet is mediocre at gold, her attack stat is nowhere near enough damage to sustain very high streaks. However, her SA is unique in that she can take on some of the most difficult, defense savvy enemies in the game. Resonant Evil, Armed Forces, Brain Freeze and Untouchable all have incredible defensive SAs; Red Velvet’s Hex is a great way to get around it. She could definitely enjoy the stat boost from Diamond Tier. Sub Par: Immoral Fiber, Blood Drive, Firefly, Parasite Weave, Oh Mai, Number One, Frayed Ends, Beat Box, Dead Heat, Sheltered, Rerun I'm currently writing a more detailed explanation on why each character is rated the way they are. (Check out all the detailed descriptions here!) Still a WIP. This is an offensively biased list, focusing on continuing high streaks. Let me know what you think! I would love to be convinced on if rankings need to be altered or mixed around. Hoping to make lists for every element... So hang in there! Water is next.
