Limited JS Daemon Analysis: Sherlock Holmes, Yuki Onna and Gargyole
4 ★ Assist Anima
Max/MLB Attack: 7500/9195
Max/MLB HP: 7000/8583
Base bond effect: Increases Attack
Grotesque of Evil Banishment (lvl 70): Immune to Poison and increases DMG dealt by 3% at the same time
Weak. Really weak. Karatia was a 3* that offered 2% more DMG dealt in exchange for not having the poison immunity, and honestly that was better. Don’t get this, it really has no use.

Qtphi21: Plus he needs 3 copies to be unlocked. That means 50 mochis plus 2 4* orbs, or a ton of summons. Exorbitant cost for very little benefit. If it was ‘immune to all status effects’ rather than just poison though…
Yuki Onna [HW2]
5 ★ Ranged Phantasma
Max/MLB Attack: 13000/15513
Max/MLB HP: 8600/10262
Melody of Snow (MAX): Deals 1238/1478 DMG to all enemies, with a moderate chance of inflicting Freeze.
Frozen Smile (lvl 70): Skill attacks have 20% chance of inflicting Freeze.
Honor Student (lvl 80): All Phantasma team members deal 5% more DMG.
Yuki also isn’t particularly good. High stats but with only a small damage boost means her auto attacks are just in the okay region and nothing special (34th highest if you really want to know).
If you combine her passives with her skill she has a low damaging all target ability with a high freeze chance. She’s actually pretty comparable to the current event reward in Emperor Sutoku [HW2], just switching stun for freeze and upping the chance. On the first wave she does more damage, after 2 waves she’s about equal (Sutoku gains crit rate per wave) and after 3 waves she does less – so overall they do about the same damage in a normal situation in both skill and auto.
The difference therefore is simply a greater CC chance, and the added 5% Phantom damage boost. You might think therefore that Yuki is a better card, but honestly neither has significant use in Tower, CQ or World Boss. They both might see use in competitive PvP simply for the high CC chances, but Sutoku is much preferred in Endless mode, and hence why I rate him slightly higher overall.
Even if CC were a necessity there are much more attainable options like Sutoku, so I don’t view her as worth the investment.
Emilio’s Rating: 7.4 / 10
Qtphi21: Usually I absolutely love Totomo’s artwork. But Yuki’s body proportion seems somewhat awkward. Her knees and lower legs aren’t where they ought to be.
5 ★ Assist Divina
Max/MLB Attack: 12800/15274
Max/MLB HP: 8600/10262
Base bond effect: Increases Skill DMG
Famous Detective (lvl 70): Increases battle reward drop rate by 15% (only take effect once to the team)
Heavy Smoker (lvl 80): Increases 20% of the EXP gained from battle (only take effect once to the team)
This one should be pretty obvious. It’s immense farm for free, you can have 2 (with a friend) and it’s two types of boosts in drop rate and EXP, and it’s simply additional to the farm daemon already in your team. This is amazing and during tower events such as this one Holmes is just an automatic inclusion. The problem however is getting a LJS to 80 purely for farm when there are many other things to orb, and that is quite a big problem. Thankfully the drop rate passive is at 70, so exchanging 200 mochi for this just by itself is very reasonable. You’re probably going to need some whale or lucky friends to get the extra 20% EXP however from ally assist.
Emilio’s Rating: 9.5 / 10
Qtphi21: A gentle reminder to all that once the event helper for drops is in play, the effect of drop rate abilities becomes much less significant. Of course for players not planning to purchase the event helpers, and in the first 11 days of tower without the drop helper available for trade, then any and all drop rate boosters (including Holmes) help massively.
