July 11 New Evolutions!

July 11 New Evolutions!

New Evolutions, what do?

July 11th brought in a whole batch of new evolutions. While they are not all super hyped, I’d still like to give them all a look over and share my thoughts. I’m trying some different formatting for this one so please let me know your thoughts and suggestions.

Reincarnated Archdemon Lucifer

 

 

 

Stats Changes vs Awoken

  • HP: 3808 (+780)
  • ATK: 2088 (+482)
  • RCV: 604 (+20)

Awokens Gained and Super Awokens

Awokens

Super Awoken

Leader Skill Changes

God & Devil type cards HP x1.35, ATK x1.35, RCV x1.35 HP x1.5, ATK x1.5, RCV x1.5. Increases time limit of orb movement by 2 seconds. ATK x3 x5 when simultaneously clearing 6 connected Dark orbs.

Thoughts

He got a nice stat buff, especially to his weaker baseline HP in his Awoken form.

Once the most undesired unit in a pantheon on release, he quickly became highly desireable once his Awoken form came out. Then other newer units came out and he was forgotten. His new reincaranted form does add quite a few things to him to up his power level.

  • Balanced typing for ALL killers
  • 1.5x to all stats instead of the 1.35x
  • Multiplier for connecting 6+ orbs is now 5x instead of 3x

It’s possible that he can clear some harder stuff from before that he couldn’t earlier with the new bump in his attack from 16.40x to 56.25x, adding in his extra killers and balanced typing, it’s extremely likely that he can start doing things that he couldn’t before because of his lack of damage. I’d imagine he would see some use on Satan void and Lajoa teams as well.

Uevo Vajrayaksa

 

 

 

Stat Changes vs Evo

  • HP: 3093
  • ATK: 2355 (+600)
  • RCV: 604

Awokens Gained

Leader Skill Changes

All attribute cards ATK x4 when attacking with 4 of following orb types: Fire, Water, Wood, Light, Dark & Heart. ATK x1x4 for each additional orb type, up to ATK x6 x12 for all 6 matches. Deal ATK x30 damage to all enemies after every orbs elimination. Ignores enemy element, but can be reduced by enemy defense down to 0 damage.

Thoughts

Vajrayaska’s new ultimate form looks just like his artwork, straight up punching faces. This extra attack is not only reflected in his stat increase with his Uevo but his new leader skill as well.

His top end damage is significantly higher in this form up to 144x. He also gains unbindability as a baseline awoken. He does not gain any new typings. This Uevo is an offensive upgrade only. It’s not as big of a jump as I would like, but it’s expected for being a normal Uevo.

Awoken Vajrayaksa

 

 

 

Stat Changes vs Evo

  • HP: 3693 (+600)
  • ATK: 2055 (+300)
  • RCV: 604

Awokens Gained

Thoughts

His awoken form has a new active and leader skill:

Active Skill: Light attribute ATK x2 for 3 turns. Randomly spawn 6 Light orbs from non Light orbs. Max 10 turns

Your damage boost is the same but you are giving up a 2 turn haste for 6 light orbs. This is important due to the leader skill:

Leader Skill:  All attribute cards ATK x6, 25% all damage reduction when attacking with Light and Light combos at the same time. Deal ATK x100 damage to all enemies after every orbs elimination. Ignores enemy element, but can be reduced by enemy defense down to 0 damage.

Your leader skill absolutely needs 2 light orbs to trigger, so the active feeds into that. His new awokens make him a really strong candidate for teams in co op play as it gives him a ton of stat boost, 3 skill boosts, and a 7c for damage.

UEvo Vajrabhairava

 

 

 

Much like Vajrayaksa, Vajrabhairava also got an ult evo and an awoken evo.

Stat Changes vs Evo

  • HP: 2805
  • ATK: 2440 (+600)
  • RCV: 148

Awokens Gained

Leader Skill Changes

Leader Skill:  ATK x3 x5 at 5 combos. ATK x1 for each additional combo, up to ATK x6 x10 at 10 combos. Deal ATK x30 damage to all enemies after every orbs elimination. Ignores enemy element, but can be reduced by enemy defense down to 0 damage.

Thoughts

A direct parallel to Vajrayaksa’s Uevo.

He gets higher multipliers and a higher top end for more combos. Much like Vajrayaksa’s Uevo, a direct offensive upgrade with not many new shiny things attached.

Awoken Vajrabhairava

Stat Changes vs Evo

  • HP: 3805 (+1000)
  • ATK: 1940 (+100)
  • RCV: 148

Awokens Gained

Thoughts

Paralleling Vajrayaksa’s Awoken again, he gains the same awokens and the same leader skill but with dark instead.

Active Skill:  Dark attribute ATK x2 for 3 turns. Randomly spawn 6 Dark orbs from non Dark orbs. Max 10 turns

Leader Skill: All attribute cards ATK x6, 25% all damage reduction when attacking with Dark and Dark combos at the same time. Deal ATK x100 damage to all enemies after every orbs elimination. Ignores enemy element, but can be reduced by enemy defense down to 0 damage.

For both Vajrabhairava and Vajrayaksa I think the awoken forms are probably more useful since they do get more awokens and have slightly more to them than just the Uevo form.

Reincarnated Uriel, Gabriel, and Michael

 

 

I am putting these 3 in one grouping because they are not very exciting. They all get similar changes outside of a small stat boost

Awokens Gained

Leader Skill Changes

All 3 gain an extra shield on their leader skill that is a 35% shield when their HP is above 80%. This is a welcome addition but it doesn’t actually change their position too much in the current meta.

Thoughts

These three have gained some value in being subs for teams they are used on  because of the second 7c to increase their damage output. Other than that it’s nothing spectacular.

Reincarnated Raphael

 

 

 

Stat changes vs Awoken

  • HP:  4700(+300)
  • ATK: 2309 (+581)
  • RCV: 203 (+98)

Awokens Gained

Leader Skill Changes

No skyfall combos. ATK x6 x8 when there are 5 or less orbs on the board after matching. All attribute cards ATK x4 when attacking with 4 of following orb types: Fire, Water, Wood, Light & Dark.

Thoughts

he gains an extra second of move time, his multiplier goes up to x64, he still keeps his rows. All of these are slight buffs, and really won’t change much of where he’s at relative to the top end meta.

Reincarnated Belial

 

 

 

Stat changes vs Awoken

  • HP: 4465 (+1425)
  • ATK: 2211 (+205)
  • RCV: 332 (+5)

Awokens Gained and Super Awokens

Awokens

Super Awokens

Latent Killers Access Gained

Leader Skill Changes

Attacker & Devil type cards HP x2, ATK x2. All attribute cards ATK x3.5 x4, RCV x2 when reaching Fire & Water Dark combos.

Thoughts

Significant increase in HP in the Revo form. He gains a VDP Awoken and has the option to block clouds as a utility. His new leader skill covers up some of his weaknesses before with an RCV boost, and it changes to Fire/Dark Combo instead of Fire/Water. Healer/Machine Killers are niche and doesn’t really increase his value as a sub outside of his newly acquired VDP.

Reincarnated Amon

Stat changes vs Awoken

  • HP: 4566 (+971)
  • ATK: 1892 (+329)
  • RCV: 496 (+73)

Awokens Gained and Super Awokens

Awokens

Super Awokens

 

Latent Killers Access Gained

All

Leader Skill Changes

Dragon & Devil type cards HP x1.5, ATK x1.5, RCV x1.5. All attribute cards ATK x4 x6 when reaching Water & Wood Dark combos.

Thoughts

All the Reincarnated Archdemons gained a VDP, which has been a mechanic we’ve seen in increase in recent months for bosses. Amon’s utility Super Awoken is tape resist. He does gain a Balanced typing so he gains access to all killers. With a low cooldown on his active he is definitely a suitable choice for Blue Sonia teams that may need to deal with damage null situations.

Reincarnated Baal

Stat changes vs Awoken

  • HP: 3174 (+81)
  • ATK: 2558 (+632)
  • RCV: 512 (+152)

Awokens Gained and Super Awokens

Awokens

Super Awokens

 

Latent Killers Access Gained

Leader Skill Changes

Devil & Machine type cards ATK x2 x2.5, RCV x2 x2.5. All attribute cards ATK x3.5 x4 when reaching Light & Fire Wood combos.

Thoughts

If you didn’t get Yusuke and still need a VDP for light here’s another option outside of Apollo. Tape resist is the utility SA here. Nothing really new except another possible VDP sub for light units.

Reincarnated Sarasvati

Stat changes vs Awoken

  • HP: 4201 (+586)
  • ATK: 2471 (+571)
  • RCV: 257 (+19)

Awokens Gained

Leader Skill Changes

Dragon & Attacker type cards HP x1.5 x2, ATK x1.5 x2. All attribute cards ATK x3 when reaching 2 set of Water combos. ATK x1.5 for each additional combo, up to ATK x7.5 when reaching 5 combos.

Thoughts

The unbindability makes her a slightly safer play as a lead, but the buffs are nothing to write home about.

Uevo Inahime

Stat changes vs Awoken

  • HP: 4669 (+300)
  • ATK: 1633 (-150)
  • RCV: 65

Awokens

Leader Skill:

Can no longer clear 3 connected orbs. All attribute cards ATK x3. All attribute cards ATK x4, 25% all damage reduction when attacking with Fire and Fire combos at the same time. Change the board to 7×6 size.

Thoughts

Very different than the awoken form. She becomes a 7×6 leader that’s focused on matching fire combos. Fire units generally have low RCV so when you’re building around you may want to make sure you have something to cover it. Gaining a 7c and retaining her +combo count active from her base form can be useful, I’d consider her as a sub for an Amen team in this Uevo.

Awoken Ma Chao

Stat changes vs Uevo

  • HP: 3513 (+100)
  • ATK: 2055 (+300)
  • RCV: 173

Awokens

Latent Killer Choices

Active Skill

Removes lock status on orbs. Change all orbs to Water, Wood & Light orbs. Max 9 turns.

Leader Skill

Change the board to 7×6 size. ATK x2, RCV x1.5 when reaching 8 combos. All attribute cards ATK x4, 25% all damage reduction when attacking with Water, Wood & Light orb types at the same time.

Thoughts

You can get some good attack out of him with TPAs. He has a 7×6 board leader with a small shield, but you need to match 3 colors, which he conveniently provides. A bonus RCV along with the shield will help him sustain in longer dungeons. What I think he will be better at is being a better inherit, specifically to current popular Meta teams like Yusuke and Ed. His active skill becomes more valuable because it does a full board change instead of just orb changes, and it provides water orbs for Yusuke teams.

Awoken Diao Chan

 

 

Stat changes vs Uevo

  • HP: 3933 (+1200)
  • ATK: 1615 (+350)
  • RCV: 310 (360)

Awokens

 

 

Latent Killer Choices

 

 

Active Skill

Awoken Bind recovery for 2 turns. Increases time limit of orb movement by 2 seconds for 1 turn. Max 2 turns

Leader Skill

Change the board to 7×6 size. ATK x2, RCV x1.5 when reaching 8 combos. All attribute cards ATK x4, 25% all damage reduction when attacking with 5+ Light orbs at the same time.

Thoughts

Paralleling Awoken Ma Chao in the leader skill department, her requirement is a little easier and more synergistic, but it’s traded off with a not so good leader skill. She’s no longer as useful in a double sub format if they are both awoken to Anubis teams since you don’t need awoken bind recovery every turn, and she loses her 7c. She is definitely a stronger leader in this form though, and potentially could play around with LUnlock teams with her as a leader.
