Introducing Parasoul Parasoul is an "assassin" type fighter, as most of her variants rely on getting critical hits. Her attacks don't exactly do the most damage, but she is incredibly deadly if she consistently lands critical hits. Parasoul has decent attack and health and a number of her moves that increase her critical chance, which forces the player to play strategically and search for openings to exploit. She also has abilities that keep the Parasoul player at a constant advantage. Character Ability: Tearful Description: Certain attacks will now spawn a tear. Using a charge attack will detonate all active tears, damaging all opponents caught in the blast. 1. Primed Rarity: Gold Element: Dark Atk (at lvl 60): 11,616 Hp (at lvl 60): 54.8k FS (at lvl 60): 21.2k SA: Screwed Attack - Gain enrage for 10 seconds when spawning a tear - On tear detonation, inflict bleed on opponent for 5 seconds per active tear Primed is still the best Parasoul even with the introduction to Summer Salt. Her already good dmg output is enhanced greatly by the fact that she gains an enrage with every tear that she spawns. Quite a few of her attacks spawn a tear, so her dmg output can be enhanced very easily and very quickly, The only downside to her (aside from her ok hp) is that the potential for chip dmg from the bleed is very low. Even with the addition of Napalm Trigger, the bleed is short lived, rendering it somewhat worthless. But otherwise, Primed is still an extremely good fighter. 2. Summer Salt Rarity: Diamond Element: Light Atk (at lvl 60): 13,556 Hp (at lvl 60): 64k FS (at lvl 60): 24.8k SA: A Salt Rifle - Opponent loses 1 buff and 3% health every 2 seconds while near a tear - When detonating at least 3 tears at once, remove all debuffs and gain 5 stacks of precision. The detonated tears also deal 100% bonus damage Although she initially sounds better than Primed, Primed is still better than her. Losing a buff every 2 seconds isn't exactly the best thing ever, though the health isn't too bad. It'd be better if it was every second. Although the real drawback is that the opponent MUST be near the tears. And although Napalm Shower can easily grant enough tears to trigger SA2, sometimes you may not have it when you need it. Precision's a buff that has a niche against annoying defense fighters, but outside of that, isn't too special. Summer Salt is still pretty good though. 3. Sheltered Rarity: Bronze Element: Fire Atk (at lvl 60): 7,392 Hp (at lvl 60): 44.8k FS (at lvl 60): 15.2k SA: Overly Critical - Increase critical chance by 20% for all teammates - On critical hit, gain enrage for 7 seconds Looks like Sheltered got a rework. After playing around with her, I'm finding she's actually very strong. She can easily gains enrages, as her crit rate boost applies to herself AND any teammates she has. This makes it easy to obtain enrages if your crit rate is at least 30%. Easily being able to stack enrages is a good thing for anyone, as she will just DESTROY anyone that doesn't have armor. In addition, if paired with Critical Mass, she can deal absolutely devastating damage. If you don't have Summer Salt or Primed, Sheltered is an easily obtained and much cheaper alternative to them. 4. No Egrets Rarity: Silver Element: Water Atk (at lvl 60): 8,640 Hp (at lvl 60): 52.2k FS (at lvl 60): 17.7k SA: Martial Law -On critical hit, disable opponent's blockbusters for 4 seconds -Also disable opponent's special moves and tag ins for 4 seconds Between No Egrets and Bad Ms Frosty, No Egrets is better. Unlike Ms Frosty, Parasoul will be guaranteed to inflict the disables on a critical hit. She also has better hp, which works out if you mess up and start getting hit. One weakness is that she depends on landing critical hits in order for her SA to work But this can be remedied by increasing her crit rate through stats from moves, her Marquee, or by bringing Sheltered Parasoul. Or even all of the above (unless the opponent has TAF on their team). Her main strength lies in being able to keep the opponent away from their BBs longer that mostly every other fighter, which can prolong her life significantly, as she disables the opponent's blockbusters as part of her SA. If you use any of the methods mentioned previously, she can continuously disable the opponent's blockbusters. It can also be used to target a specific fighter on the opponent's team (such as a Surgeon General Valentine or other support characters) because she also disables tag ins as part of her SA. 5. Ivy League Rarity: Silver Element: Wind Atk (at lvl 60): 9,946 Hp (at lvl 60): 47k FS (at lvl 60): 18.2k SA: Fenced In - Slow opponent's blockbusters for 10 seconds when spawning a tear - On tear detonation, inflict wither for 10 seconds with every active tear Ivy League will be receiving quite a buff with the new Napalm Trigger move coming next update. Her wither won't be nearly as risky to go for, as Napalm Trigger will detonate all the tears at once. And without needing the charge attack. This will allow her to better deal with bbs (BB3s in particular) as Napalm Shower can be used with Napalm Trigger for 3 stacks of wither. The slow she inflicts will prevent the opponent from making any significant meter gain while the wither keeps their meter empty. 6. Regally Blonde Rarity: Gold Element: Water Atk (at lvl 60): 10,100 Hp (at lvl 60): 61k FS (at lvl 60): 20.7k SA: On Ice - When an opponent uses a blockbuster, there is a 50% chance that their remaining blockbuster meter is reduced by 75% - On tear detonation, each active tear disables the opponent's special moves, blockbusters, or tag ins for 8 seconds Regally Blonde serves a similar purpose as No Egrets. However, unlike No Egrets, she is incredibly dependent on sheer luck, as SA1 shows. In addition, her tears do not disable all of the 3 things at once. Each individual tear disables one thing at a time (i.e. one tear disables bbs or another disables special moves). If at least all of these things were disabled by one tear instead of one tear disabling one thing (albeit for a 1 or 2 second lower duration), she would probably be better than No Egrets. Though even with that, detonating her tears is a risky business (refer to Primed if you're wondering why). This will be remedied in the next update with a new special move she's getting, which allows her to safely detonate her tears all at once. But even that won't help her much, simply because she's too much of a gambler's bet. She's fun when things go your way, but otherwise she's somewhat unreliable. 7. Star-Crossed Rarity: Gold (Stormy Relic Exclusive) Element: Wind Atk (at lvl 60): 10,100 Hp (at lvl 60): 61k FS (at lvl 60): 20.7k SA: Riposte Apocalypse - A well timed block against standard attacks has a 50% chance to stun the opponent for 3 seconds - Blockbusters inflict 100% bonus damage against stunned enemies Star-Crossed is attempt at a unique concept. The concept itself is good. How it's carried out, not so much. What exactly a "well timed block" means, I have no idea. I do know that this makes her hard to use on defense, as the opponent can simply wait for her to go to them and then launch a counter attack against her. Not to mention it's a 50% chance. In addition, even if you do get the stun, only blockbusters benefit from the extra damage, making her somewhat unreliable on offense. Overall, Star-Crossed is unreliable and not really worth it, especially for how rare she is. 8. Princess Pride Rarity: Gold Element: Light Atk (at lvl 60): 8,564 Hp (at lvl 60): 67k FS (at lvl 60): 20.1k SA: Tears of Joy - Gain regen for 6 seconds when spawning a tear - On tear detonation, immediately recover 6% health per active tear Princess Pride is the 2nd best "self heal" type character in the game as it is now. However, the regen from her tears doesn't last very long, though the ease at which a player can spawn tears counters this. The instant regen is almost impossible to get, due to the risk which detonating Parasoul's tears brings. If you do get it though, it'll be a nice bit of regen. Her dmg output is ok, but seeing as she's more defense, this isn't a big deal. She has actually been nerfed a while back, which reduced her regen's duration by 4 seconds and decreased the hp healed from detonated tears from 8% to 6%.. Prior to this nerf though, she was better than Primed. 9. Heavy Reign Rarity: Bronze Element: Wind Atk (at lvl 60): 6,951 Hp (at lvl 60): 54.2k FS (at lvl 60): 16.3k SA: Overcast - 50% chance on critical hit to gain 15% meter for blockbusters - 50% chance to gain 15% meter for all blockbusters when suffering a critical hit Heavy Reign is a bronze worth evolving to gold. Despite her lackluster dmg output, the ease at which she can gain meter for her blockbusters thanks to SA1 makes up for this. Any method you use for buffing No Egrets' critical chance can also be used on Heavy Reign. Her main drawback is that on defense (offense too, but more defense), SA2 becomes mostly unreliable, as most fighters probably won't have a very high critical chance and she will almost certainly not get any real hits on the opponent. In addition, after a certain point, being able to spam BBs will not make up for her lackluster damage.
