The Hina Doll Squad Event Daemon Analysis: Wanyuudou, Daidarabotchi, Zhang Jiao, Yaobikuni, Okita Soji

Wanyuudou

Wanyuudou

3 ★ Melee Anima

Stats

Max/MLB Attack: 4000/5090

Max/MLB HP: 5000/6361

Skills

Swirling Flames (MAX): Deals 2652/3372 DMG to the enemy with the lowest HP, with a moderate chance of inflicting Burn.

Opinion

This tower was filled with spelling errors, with Wanyuudou constantly called Onyuudou throughout the tower story. There typically isn’t much to be said for the event 3 ★: low stats (as expected), low-ish skill DMG (Tokarev Pistol does more at 3009). While her burn does up her damage output, it isn’t enough to make her worth keeping when much better daemons are available.

Where she succeeds is in being an absolute pest on the final stage, 4-40, with a massive amount of HP to match her screen filling size (thanks to being pumped up on evil energy). As the event boss her targeting of the lowest HP member of your team increases the chance of failing to achieve the ‘no death’ achievement on clearing the stage, thus making the final chapter difficult to ace. Her record breaking HP also means that players also struggle to complete the stage within ⅓ time (or even completion on time at all, for players without a good debuffer and nuker on their teams).

 

Nex Rating: Junk

Emilio Rating: Standard 3* Fodder

 

Daidarabotchi Green

Daidarabotchi [Green]

4 ★ Melee Divina

Stats

Max/MLB Attack: 5700/6988

Max/MLB HP: 6400/7847

Skills

Green Giant (MAX): Deals 633/773 DMG to all enemies. Targets take 18/22% more DMG for a limited time.

Giant Transformation (lvl 60): Moderately increases Max HP and restores 2.5% HP every 5 seconds.

Opinion

Chapter 9 story daemon is back as part of the super hero team. She hits all enemies for a low damage, and inflicts a low damage debuff. This makes her quite pointless to use, with much better AoE hitters, or debuffers available or released previously. She retains her original form’s HP boosting and auto recovery ability with minimal change.

Because of her ability, she does have a fairly high effective HP. However, if effective HP is one’s main goal, one would be much better off still with a proper 5★ tank like Cyclops, currently available in the exchange.

 

Nex Rating: Junk

Emilio Rating: An above average 4* but nothing special (pretty similar to her original version)

 

Zhang Jiao Yellow

Zhang Jiao [Yellow]

4 ★ Ranged Phantasma

Stats

Max/MLB Attack: 8400/10298

Max/MLB HP: 6000/7356

Skills

Yellow Sky (MAX): Deals 1762/2162 DMG to the 3 enemies with the highest ATK, with a moderate chance of inflicting Paralysis.

Yellow Turban (lvl 28): Sharply increases Crit DMG (30%)

Opinion

Zhang Jiao / Zhang Jue / Zhang Rue (whatever his name is) deals damage to 3 targets. His stats are decent, being ranged. His ‘sharp’ crit DMG boost is 30%.

Moderate chance Paralysis

Highest Atk Lv 28: Sharply increases Crit DMG (30%) 1400 3381

His damage output is also comparable to 4★ Titania, available from story completion, and Firework Artisan Kagi. However, even if his Crit DMG boost is considered, he still does not come close to out damaging the top tier 3 target 4★ like Roman Candell, not to mention 5★ like Yatagarasu [Festival].

 

Nex Rating: Junk

Emilio Rating: Not particularly useful, as is nearly every other 4* damage dealer.

 

Yaobikuni Leader

Yaobikuni [Leader]

5 ★ Ranged Phantasma

Stats

Max/MLB Attack: 11800/14081

Max/MLB HP: 7900/9428

Skills

Black Mermaid (MAX): Deals 4762/5682 DMG to 1 enemy (melee priority), with a high chance of inflicting weak poison.

Hidden Determination (lvl 71): Sharply increases DMG dealt (40%) and Sharply reduce DMG taken (30%) at the start of the final wave.

Opinion

30% and 40% are the new 20%. It seems like Mitama has decided to amp up power creep by varying the percentage associated with the ‘sharp’ descriptor more. The first daemon released recently with this 40% sharp descriptor was Restless Ghost [Christmas II]. Rather than being an aberration, perhaps we will see more daemons with 30% and 40% ‘sharp’ skill descriptors.

Yaobikuni is a simple damage dealer, dealing straight damage to a melee opponent. Melee targeting isn’t the most ideal, unless of course facing a melee boss (and you can’t be bothered to deal with the ranged brute hiding behind). Targeting is irrelevant on single target stages like World Boss.

Her effective stats (with full skill bonds) are as follows:

MLB true autos:
14081*1.225/10= 1724
14081*1.4*1.225/10 = 2414 (final wave)

MLB skill dmg:
5682*1.225*1.225= 8526
5682*1.225*1.4*1.225= 11937 (final wave)

Effective HP:
9428/1.075= 8770
9428/(1+0.075-0.30)= 12,165 (final wave)

She has really high effective HP and her damage dealt boost increases her auto attacks. World Boss battles would be where she excels, having really high effective HP to tank the WB nukes, and high auto attacks. With the world boss being a single stage battle, only her final wave stats are relevant. And with no brutes to deal with, targeting is also not a priority.

For newer players struggling to keep their nuker alive on world boss battles, Yaobikuni is a life saver. It is relatively easy to acquire her at LB1, where her ability unlocks. You can get 1 copy from Tower completion, and trade 1 copy with the Hina Cracker drops one acquires along the way to event completion. Getting LB2 would require a relatively affordable amount of items, but MLB can be relatively pricey. Veterans with high LB of other top tier nukers don’t really need her; Yaobikuni reinforces rather than breaks the current meta of phantasma dominance (see the density of Phantasma daemons at the top end of the table). However, her incredible tankiness compared to the other ranged nukers (excepting Oda Tenmoku who also has a damage reduction ability) could make her worthwhile. With both Amanojaku [Valentine’s Day] and Yaobikuni packing damage reduction abilities, expect to see the World Boss produce ever higher damage in order to challenge those teams.

 

Nex Rating: Powerful Nuker. Both offensively and defensively.

Emilio: Top tier card. Beats out other nukers (ignoring Amano’s special tier by herself) and is stupidly tanky. Easy for newer players to pick up lb1 to unlock her abilities and have a powerful nuker. Veterans can MLB her as well for options. No downsides or requirements (like Amor) to make her work.

 

Okita Soji Blue

Okita Soji [Blue]

5 ★ Melee Divina

Stats

Max/MLB Attack: 7900/9428

Max/MLB HP: 9300/11097

Skills

True Blue (MAX): Deals 1750/2090 DMG to all enemies. Targets deal 12/14% less DMG for a limited time.

Fashionably Blue (lvl 57): Sharply reduces DMG taken

Doll Squad (lvl 81): All “Doll Squad” allies deal slightly more DMG.

Opinion

Starter daemon Okita Soji is back, finally acquiring a 5★ form. He skill hits all enemies, and reduces their damage output. This makes him similar to Juzumaru Tsunetsugu, with the main difference being Juzumaru provides a much larger damage reduction, and deals less damage with her skill. Okita himself should also prove to be a good tank, with a sharp damage reduction added to his melee typing.

MLB Effective HP 15306 13497

 

In general daemons with Okita and Juzumaru’s skill set are popular amongst competitive PvP players. Both pack ‘sharp’ damage reduction abilities, with Okita having the higher HP. Juzumaru would probably be better at keeping your entire team alive, as she reduces the damage by the opposing team by a far larger amount. Both of them have relatively gimmicky abilities: Okita with the other Doll Squad members, and Juzumaru needing another of the 5 Swords Under Heaven. The 5 Swords in general are OK daemons to be used on competitive PvP – Dojigiri [Bride], Onimaru, Onimaru [Defiant] all being multitarget hitters favored by PvP players. Synergy among the Doll Squad would be harder to achieve, with options limited to 4★ like Daidarabotchi [Green] and Zhang Jiao [Yellow] and Oniichi Hogen[Red]. The other 5★ Doll Squad members would need to be acquired via Limited Jewel Summon – Ohina [Pink] and possibly the Legendary Defender Dairo (does Dairo count as Doll Squad? Anyone who can verify this please comment below).

Outside PvP, Okita Soji [Blue] would mainly serve as a damage absorber for your team on difficult stages. He would also pass as a wave clearing all target hitter, but his skill damage is relatively low compared to 3 target daemons who dish out larger skill damage.

 

Nex Rating: It’s so sad that they made him so junky considering his other 2 forms are relatively strong at their rarities.

Emilio Rating: Too weak sadly. Needed a bigger debuff % to at least be a pvp daemon. No real use as is.
