Introducing Painwheel: Painwheel is the definition of a glass cannon in this game. She has the highest attack of all characters, however the lower defensive stats of them all, witch means you will be shredding health, but if you get hit by a combo, you are probably gone. A high risk high reward character! Character ability: FLIGHT RISK "Swipe up twice and Painwheel will take flight! While flying, Painwheel will EVADE some attacks and can rain death from above" This is not the most useful ability. I have to admit, it has its uses like surprising your opponent with an attack that they can't avoid or dodging some things, but it also makes you really vulnerable and is punishable. It needs skills to use well. TIER LIST Buzzkill - Rank S Rarity: Gold SA: HEMORRHAGE 10% chance on HIT to inflict HEAVY BLEED for 10 seconds Gain a permanent stack of ENRAGE every time the enemy health drops below 25% Recommend stats: Attack, Meter Gain, HP, Defense This Painwheel is a monster. She can destroy squishy characters and snowball from there, becoming even stronger. Also, her heavy bleed helps dealing with tanks and dealing even more DPS. The only downside is that you can't stack heavy bleed, so it's harder to deal with VERY tanky characters. Still, the better one to go with. Firefly - Rank A Rarity: Gold SA: SERENITY When BLOCKING below 50% HEALTH, gain 8% HEALTH per second Also gain 8% BLOCKBUSTER METER per second Recommend stats: Defense, Attack, HP, Block Proficiency This one is really interesting. Although I don't like SAs that requires you to lose health, 50% is not that much, and the payoff is nice. You can also heal back to keep re-using her SA and spam some Block Busters. The downside is, you need to first to get below 50% health, what might kill you. Blood Drive - Rank A Rarity: Silver SA: TRANSFUSION 5% chance on HIT to inflict BLEED on self and HEAVY BLEED on opponent for 10 seconds Also gain ENRAGE for 6 seconds for every BLEED effect applied to Painwheel Recommend stats: Attack, Defense, Meter Gain, Crit Rate, Crit Damage This one Painwheel is the glass cannon of the glass cannons. She can deal a immense amount of damage, however she does a lot of damage to herself, so be careful. You can still kill 2 or 3 enemys before her SA kills herself. Be careful, any mistake will be even more punishable! Raw Nerv - Rank B Rarity: Gold SA: DEATH'S DOOR Gain permanent ENRAGE when your HEALTH drops below 25% Attacks quickly build BLOCKBUSTER meter whenever HEALTH is below 50% Recommended stats: Attack, HP, Defense, Meter Gain Well, I can see if someone disagree with me in this one, but I feel like there is too much risk for a not so great reward. For you to get that enrage stack, you need to get really low, and being a Painwheel, anything will probably kill you. I just feel you need to take the initiative, and this SA is just too much of a "last resource" Rusty - Rank B Rarity: Bronze SA: BLEED FOR ME 10% chance on HIT to inflict BLEED for 3 seconds Also converts 2 of the enemy's beneficial COMBAT EFFECT(S) into BLEED Recommend stats: Attack, Meter Gain, Defense, HP I really liks the simplicity of this SA. She's a bleed machine, and can counter some other characters, as converting Unflinching or Armor can sometimes be the difference between winning and losing. However, not every match up has effects to be consistently converted, also, she's a natural bronze, so she will never have all that great stats Twisted Mettle - Rank C Rarity: Bronze SA: CUTTING EDGE When suffering a CRITICAL HIT, inflict BLEED for 15 seconds 50% chance on HIT to inflict BLEED for 3 seconds if opponent has BLEED Recommend stats: HP, Defense, Meter Gain, Attack Well, with this one, you just have no chance against stronger teams. You will make them bleed for some, then die. That's just it, I have nothing else ro say. Maybe you can proc bleed with some Block Buster or Special Move and them proc her SA, but... You are better going with almost anything else Rage Appropriate - Rank C Rarity: Silver SA: THIN SKINNED Gain a permanent stack of ENRAGE every time an opponent's attack inflicts more than 10% total HEALTH Once per match, gain HEAVY REGEN for 5 seconds when HEALTH drops below 50% Recommend stats: Defense, Meter Gain, Attack This time we have one of the worst SA in the game. It doesn't really work against weaker teams since they can't deal 10% of your health in one hit, and against stronger teams they will just kill you if they removed more than 10% of your health in one hit. Don't invest in her, it's not worth. Defining tiers: S - Really good fighter, invest in it. You can't go wrong, few to no bad match ups, good stats A - Good fighter, still worth investing. Has some bad match ups but still really good B - Ok fighter, you can invest if you want. Wouldn't recommend, but is more of a niche pick C - Bad fighter, don't invest in it. Weak stats, weak SA. Just don't waste gold with it ------------ Remember, this is my tier list and it's entirely my opinion. Feel free to discuss, agree and disagree! Thanks for reading!
