There was a general discussion thread about Refess but I thought I'd go ahead and start an official 2nd set Refess strategy discussion.
I've been playing only Refess since the 2nd set came out and though I'm still hovering around 1500 RP there've been a few things I've discovered. Spores + Blessing is GREAT against those new small Falkow units. I was able to use it the first time I decided to put it in my file. It was a close game, and I lost but I still think I might use it again in the future.
Another thing I hadn't realized (until it was used on me) was that Lycanthrope Angel's ability can target anyone on the board which is good because he lasts longer in the back row than when I was putting him in front
Griffins are one of my new favorite units because of his temporary +10 AT and +1 AGI Open Skill. Sometimes if I have enough SP I just bring out a 2nd one to buff my units again and having 2 75HP front line units is lots of fun. Spiked Shield Knight is a pretty good blocker too, especially if I add a Blessing to him.
Right now my problem is still direct damage so I added soul cards for that, but since most of my units are either tanks or support I need low level cards to activate them. I'm still figuring out what works best for this. I was using armed citizens initially but I'm trying out Wisps right now.
Spear Knights are good if you can get them to survive. They make Lancer ability something that actually can really mess up the other field. I've used either Blessing and I have an EX Vordore that is great if I have a bunch of units on the field. Inquisition Raid Leader and the other priest character with +10 AT and +10 DEF ability add small buffs but in combination it can be awesome. I've regularly had some duels where some of my units had 65 AT!
Right now when my file works it REALLY WORKS, but when it doesn't it's complete and utter defeat. I'm trying to turn that around obviously
Right now what I think I need are Priestess of the Holy Weapon (only 1 copy) and some more healing to sustain my cards.
But in general despite fluctuating above and below 1500 I'm having fun either way. The increased AGI in the new units make Refess more competitive on that front so it's less frustrating. I'll post anything else I figure out, but right now it's just lots and lots of experimentation.
