Agreed.I was really hyped when I first saw Red Velvet and then I realised she was kind of garbage. Hex isn’t really useful, I can live through Harlequin having good special moves as long as I play smart, I can armour break with battle butt on Cerebellas of my own against stuff like RE (Who I don’t even encounter like at all) or Armed forces who’s even elementally weak to Harlequin and can be stalled out with grabs and MGR’s during her Unflinching.
I thought that Red Velvet would be a solution to some of the more annoying SA’S, but 8 seconds is laughably low for her one debuff and enemies barely switch out and when they do it would be more efficient to just try and kill them before hand with say Diva Intervention a much better use of my Sekhemet who can lock my enemies in to inescapable combos. The only other option is outtakes although I think I speak for the majority when I say that they’re still a waste of dps even after the buffs. Not to mention if you want her debuffs applied consistently then you’ll need multiple Sekhemets which means less Nekbet Breakers or Lady’s of slaughter which combined with the need for an outtake kind of limits her.
Overall she’s not that great of a solution to troublesome SA’s. Harlequin deals with the annoying stalls while also having amazing damage, team supports and can turn throw breaks into free combos, other SA’s like Circular Breathing and Entanglement can be overcome with a very complex technique called holding to fingers on the screen and waiting (aka blocking) meanwhile Red Velvet has low attack, a reliance on multiple Sekhemets and a short debuff period which means that in my opinion she’s pretty useless.
P.S sorry if this doesn’t make any sense it’s late where I am.
If she can transfer debuff on the bench, she woud be very broken support with variants that can inflict hex more easily like Death Wish, Unholy Host. Heck, Unholy Host can inflict 3 more debuff, on top of her curse and hex, and cycle tag out to inflict more debuffOne problem I have with Red Velvet is that the debuffs on tag-out only work when Eliza is in. If she and her opponent tags out while the latter has hex the incoming opponent won't suffer any debuffs, so I think that should be changed. If she did get to add debuffs from the bench, Red Velvet and Thrill Shrieker could make a good combo. Taking a half of the opponent's total health and tagging another in with three debuffs would be huge.
