So,how has the release of EX: God Hand / Diosaur affected the plight of our favourite chop socky chums?
When you first look at the card it's hard to digest.All the skills look great if a little pricey,but as I've said before these guys are quite frugal.
Trait>When this unit executes an Attack action, do [damage: AT] to target enemy unit in one random enemy row in range.Almost a pinpoint then,and for free!
One non-character [subtype: martial artist] who isn't a Student gets LV=6, MAX HP+40, HP+40, AT=60, AGI=4, RNG=1 and becomes a Student.2sp
This one is very interesting,and I meditated on it for days in a Pagoda I had made as a folly on one my vast lawns,but I digress.
Let me just give as an example how a combat monk might fare as a Diosaur Student.
70hp and 60at are great,but he does lose 1 agi,and unless someone proves me wrong I don't think he ranks up on top?
All of this goes out of control when you then send him to train at Dista's Dojo!
Time it right with dista's Soul skill and you have a double whammy !110hp 70at,and 10 def.Then think back to how useless his skill seemed back when you first got the Gowen starter?That same skill could produce a spleen rupturing possible 100at!
Now think about all the other rubbish Kung Phooeys following Diosaurs guidance.
This is all fine and dandy,but it kinda makes a few artists redundant.Ex Dista's death touch is no longer so important because of the massive amounts of damage being thrown around.Olvaus is to much of a liability because of the Lev ups,and even dare I say it? Dandan loses shine to speedier mates and the less need to rank up.
Student and Teacher Combo
Engage all friendly disengaged Students, and then do [damage: AT] to one random enemy column and enemy row. This skill is repeated a total of twice.
With all the other buffing considered that's a near guaranteed field wipe for 3sp.
*note lots of other cards carry out skills seemingly unfairly,but you will have to have trained a student to pull off the above move.
Final Fist>Soul>Do [damage: 30] to one random enemy unit 1sp,better than Zangadylan's?
