Event Assist Daemon Analysis: Flora, Pollinosis, Kuchikamizake

Flora

4 ★ Assist Divina

Stats

Max/MLB Attack: 7500/9195

Max/MLB HP: 7000/8582

Bond Effects

Base bond effect: Increases Attack

Goddess of Fertility (lvl 80): Increases 10% of Battle Drop Rate (only take effect once to the team).

Event Skill: Increase Event Points by 33% – 100%

Opinion

Flora is an assist daemon that boosts drop rate. This makes here similar to Sherlock Holmes – a farming booster that can be bonded to other farming daemons to increase the drop efficiency.

Unfortunately she is particularly expensive to acquire: her ability is locked at MLB, which requires 5 copies (250 mochi) or a combination of mochi and 4 star orbs.

For cost comparison of some of the previously exchangeable drop rate boosting daemons:

DaemonDrop Rate BoostLevel LockCost (mochi)
Flora10%80250
Sherlock Holmes15%70200
Cosimo d’Medici15%70150
Hymenaios12%64100
Kokopelli4%5150
Mammon3%4950

For veterans the drop farming team is likely full of many of these other daemons, so the only opening to boost the drop rate further would be via the use of further assists. However the cost of 250 mochi for a mere 10% extra drop rate is quite steep – and Flora cannot be sealed and bonded to multiple daemons (like Imari) to get a stack on the drop boost either. With drop rate boosters a ‘nice to have but not critical’ type of daemon, newer players would be better off borrowing an ally’s Sherlock bonded Cintamani or Mara and saving mochi for daemons that prove to be better value than Flora.

Pollinosis

4 ★ Assist Phantasma

Stats

Max/MLB Attack: 7500/9195

Max/MLB HP: 7000/8582

Bond Effects

Base bond effect: Increases Attack

The portrait of Spring (lvl 80): Increases 10% of skill DMG by Divina team members (only take effect once to the team).

Event Skill: Increase Skill DMG by 33% – 100%

Opinion

Pollinosis is an assist that boosts skill damage for a particular daemon type. This is seen in other daemons like Stella: Aquila, Orion and Sagittarius. It is particularly strange though, that Pollinosis boosts Divina skill damage while being Phantasma type himself.

DaemonSkill DMG Assist %TypeLevel LockCost
Stella: Aquila20Phantasma85Approximately 3000 SE (4 copies via GCQ)
Stella: Orion20Phantasma84Approximately 3000 SE (4 copies via GCQ)
Stella: Sagittarius20Anima85450 Mochi
Pollinosis10Divina80250 Mochi
Aka ‘Red’ Chochin [HW2]252 Highest Atk DaemonsFinal wave only65100 Mochi

While Pollinosis is comparatively cheaper than Sagittarius in terms of Mochi cost, the skill damage boost he provides is also lower. When you consider the cost of Aka ‘Red’ Chochin providing a 15% boost to the 2 highest attack daemons on the team on the final wave, Pollinosis appears over priced.

Kuchikamizake

4 ★ Assist Anima

Stats

Max/MLB Attack: 7500/9195

Max/MLB HP: 7000/8582

Bond Effects

Base bond effect: Increases Max HP

Manager of Hospitality and Catering (lvl 80): Increases own level by 10.

Event Skill: Increase Time Limit by 33% – 100%

Opinion

Kuchikamizake provides a level boost to the daemon she is bonded to. Extra levels improve the daemon’s base stats – Attack, HP, Skill damage, Skill percentages. It does not unlock abilities that are still locked on the base daemon (this has been tested with Sola). Because boost is spread over multiple facets of the bonded daemon’s stats, it is not particularly focused on any one aspect. Basho would be a better Damage booster; Eihort a better skill damage booster; Ptolemy a better survival booster.

Bonded to a MLB 5 Star daemon, Kuchikamizake boosts that daemon’s stats approximately 8% over the MLB stats. Bonded to a MLB 4 Star daemon, the stat boost by increasing 10 levels is approximately 10%. Stat boost (as a percentage) per level depends on the rarity of the daemon, with lower rarity daemons having a  steeper curve but a lower limit. For a more accurate estimation as to how Kuchikamizake will affect the main daemon’s stats, please use the Stat Calculator.

The type of daemon that would benefit most individually from Kuchikamizake bond would be support daemons who do not have a skill damage value per se. Examples would include Alice, Gjallerhorn, and Yoritomo. Other than through increasing their levels there is no way to increase the percentage boosts provided by these daemons further. The opportunity cost though, would be the use of a team wide assist like Aquarius and Nautilus.

In general increasing a daemon’s level is literally a jack of all trades type of boost. Unfortunately this seldom leads to better results than better focused assists. Sola’s ability is the exception to this because she provides the level boost to every single daemon on the team, which allows them to be bonded to targeted assists while still benefiting from Sola’s boost, and their level boosted skills stack together when used in combination to produce a large increase in damage.

Do note that her art looks quite similar to Kodomatsu despite having a different artist.
