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. Thanks to Rift Battles quickly stealing the spot for high level gameplay, the lists will account for these newer, more difficult encounters. As an update, I'm splitting this list into Offensive Diamonds and Defensive Diamonds. Possible Fire Element Diamonds: Dragon Brawler, Number One, Beat Box, Private Dick, Harlequin, Immoral Fiber, Scarlet Viper, Red Velvet, Frayed Ends, Parasite Weave, Hellcat, Blood Drive, Firefly, Sheltered, Rerun, Wildcard, Dead Heat, Oh Mai and Pyro-Technique. Spoiler: Offense 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 can generally protect you from most BB3s. Her MA 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; as of the update, 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 has the potential to Stunlock. In this current version, the chance of getting BB3ed is absolutely massive. Survivability has become a top priority; PD is a very bulky boi that ate his vegetables, so he’s quite a task to take down. The MAs make him even harder to kill. If you’re having an off-day, and mess up; PD will survive a few BBs, maybe a BB3 and come out intact. Spoiler: Red Velvet Red Velvet is mediocre at gold, her attack stat is nowhere near enough to sustain 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. With the addition of Rift Battles, she becomes ever more relevant and useful than before. She could definitely enjoy the stat boost from Diamond Tier. DECENT: Spoiler: Oh Mai ATTENTION: Cellsai has done it, 3 Diamond Oh Mais as of 12_12_2018. Congrats! Ahem, Oh Mai is the elusive Daily Relic jackpot. She semi-recently received a pretty revolutionary buff to her SAs. Oh Mai is capable of dishing out a surprising amount of damage with multiple Countervenoms and once she defeats one enemy… THE BALL IS ROLLING. She’s a great backup fighter that tags in with Enrage if your main fighter dies, and she’s also pretty proficient at snowballing an enemy team out of commission. Enrages are % based damage boosts, so Diamonding her will give her bonus stats to have fun with. Spoiler: Sheltered Whoa. Sheltered received a massive buff in the damage category. On critical hit, she gains a stack of enrage. Enrages are % based damage increases, so gaining 5 stacks of it in a span of 1-2 seconds is absolutely astonishing. With the benefit of Diamond Tier, she would have more base attack to stack her enrages on, making her one ANGRY Parasoul. The only things really holding her back are her unfortunate Bronze base stats. *She’s also a pretty neat support for Fighters.* Spoiler: Pyro-Technique 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. BB3 management has become pretty CRUCIAL to your playstyle. As a Valentine, her regular combo damage is pretty low, but you can utilize multiple Countervenoms to remedy this. Diamond Tier will certainly benefit her by granting her more ATK to play with. DECENT/SUB PAR: Firefly, Dragon Brawler, Scarlet Viper, Wildcard, Immoral Fiber, Blood Drive, Parasite Weave, Number One, Hellcat, Frayed Ends, Beat Box, Dead Heat, Rerun. Spoiler: Defensive COMING SOON... 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!) (Offense - Defense) It's all still a WIP. Let me know what you think! I would love to be convinced on if rankings need to be adjusted and mixed around. Hoping to make lists for every element... So hang in there! Water is here! Defensive Fire, then Defensive Water are next! After that... Wind.
