New Special EX Half-Boxes are UP

Postby Logress » Wed Jan 30, 2013 11:45 pm

The new half-boxes starring Holy Chain Soldier Aisha and Rusted Colossus are up in the shop, and the Card List. They will be up for TWO WEEKS (cue Arnold from Total Recall).

Each of these will be 1000 gran and will contain one copy of either ‘Holy Chain Soldier / Aisha’ or ‘Rusted Colossus’ (your choice), one guaranteed 4-star, 2 guaranteed 3 stars, and 27 additional cards between 1 and 5 stars -- for 31 total cards. Although three copies of the new cards are not necessary to make them playable, especially Colossus.

Here is the rundown

Holy Chain Soldier Aisha

LV 4 HP 60 AT 0 DF 0 AGI 3 RNG 2 LP 2

True God Church / Warrior

SOUL

Bound in Holy Chain

Two random enemy units get MAX HP-30.

AUTO

[conditional use/this unit is in [area:5] This unit gets AT+40 for this turn.

Do HP-10 to the friendly unit in [area: 3], then do [damage: AT] to enemies in [area: 1-5-3]. Do HP-10 to the friendly unit in [area: 1]. This unit gets AT=0.

ACTION SP1

Holy Thrust

Subtract 30 directly from the MAX HP of target enemy column in range. This unit is healed HP+20.



Rusted Colossus

None / Mech Soldier


SOUL

Encased in Stone

Do [damage: 40] to two random disengaged enemy units. And then, one friendly unit gets LV+2 and DF+5.

Rusted Solid

This unit cannot use Standby or Iczer Attack. This unit can do nothing but Stand Steadfast until it Breaks Free.

NOTE: Rusted Colossus is a unit, not a character.

That is all.

How exactly does Rusted Colossus work? The way I'm reading the card, it seems like you should only play one copy, and then either retrieve it from the cem or revive it once it closes and "breaks free." I'm curious as to how the level comes into play, though. The AT= LV x 10, is that a permanent status that it gains afterwards (ie from now on the card gains at=LV)? Or does it's attack stat permanently change to whatever it's LV was on close? Clarifications on how exactly the close ability functions would be nice.

You basically need to kill him twice, the first time he has 60 HP the second time he gets HP 30 and AT = LVL x10, AGI 3. The AT is permanent. The Close Skill works only once.
You could run 2, for example double play him then drop Miracle fruit or Primrose.

Ah ok, I see. Thanks for the clarifications. Looks like a cool card, it's a lot better than I thought.

Once again, the people who design refress obviously dislikes it.

I was hoping for a solid unit to use as a EX, not some gimmick.

Alright, let's just take a closer look, at first glance, she looks like a lv 4 ranged Ridrea, with the possibility to 'hit' own units. For 1 sp -_-
While other files can already do double hits for free. I feel this is useless with that 1 sp condition. People rather use Aivault/guardian.

but let's just run through the list of refress counters. I don't want to bother with other files counters. I'm sure there's a good combo out there, but I want to play pure refress, damn it all.

Code: Select all
Knight of Luminance / Ernst    4    1    50    30    10    3    1    Char    *****
Fountain Knight / Elneith    3    2    45    35    0    3    1    Char    ***
Coatl    6    3    75    35    0    2    3    Unit    **
Legendary Unicorn    6    1    70    30    5    2    1    Unit    *
Boy Inquisitor / Cudgel    3    2    55    25    0    3    1    Char    EX
Star Dragon    7    3    120    50    0    3    5    Unit    **
Folrart Guardian    4    1    70    20    10    2    1    Unit    *
Blessed Armor Knight    4    2    70    40    0    2    1    Unit    *
Holy Realm Knight / Sergis    3    1    40    40    0    3    1    Char    ****
Elite Folrart Dual Wielder    4    1    40    40    10    3    1    Unit    *
Star Lord / Bastandorra    8    1    120    30    0    2    5    Char    ***
EX: Sunlight Knight    4    2    60    40    0    3    1    Unit    EX
Veteran Folrart Paladin    5    1    80    30    10    2    1    Unit    **
Brutal Mammoth    6    1    140    30    0    1    1    Unit    *
Folrart Lady Monk    2    2    30    20    0    3    1    Unit    *
Salvation Saint / Pucera    3    1    45    25    0    4    1    Char    EX
Lion General / Zagar    5    1    75    25    10    3    1    Char    *****
Mammoth Brigade    4    3    100    30    0    1    1    Unit    **
The Impregnable / Rubens    4    1    60    30    0    2    1    Char    *****
Right Hand Man / Aivault    3    1    55    25    0    3    1    Char    ***
Folrart Rear Guard    2    3    45    20    0    3    1    Unit    *
Legendary Kirin    4    1    60    30    0    4    1    Unit    *
EX: Inquisition Nun / Cynthia    3    1    55    25    0    3    1    Char    EX
Thorned Battle Diva    4    1    70    0    10    5    1    Char    EX
Cannibal Lady / Annette    2    2    35    20    0    2    2    Char    EX
Inquisitor Sergeant / Gravan    4    2    60    20    10    3    1    Char    ***
Opal Carbuncle    2    1    40    20    5    2    1    Unit    **
Folrart Greatsword Soldier    3    1    65    35    0    1    1    Unit    **
Angel Paladin / Granverion    5    3    50    10    20    3    1    Char    EX
6th Shrine Leader / Lumira    4    2    70    50    10    1    1    Char    ***
Spined Armadillo    3    1    80    0    0    1    1    Unit    *
Curse on the World    5    3    100    40    10    2    2    Unit    **
Solar General / Zagar    4    1    80    0    10    1    1    Char    ****
Heavy Folrart Guardian


I guess spined armadillo will be there with guardian? Lumira might see some use?
Also thorned battle diva which i infinitely curse that i didn't get.
Legendary kirin haha.

Oh who am I kidding? On paper it looks like it has potential, but I still feel that it's probably going to fail due to sp. One wrong move and the counter and file goes boom.

edit: Just saw something. She's not solar kingdom. She's true god church. That warrior subtype concerns me...
Sun Tyrant / Gilensa anyone? I take back some of what I say now. Looks like this ex is a ex for ex.



Gowen ex is incredible. They gain the turn 1/2/3 tank. The hell? I'm thinking of naming it retardedly good colossus. Expect to see a lot more sergis SS in alteil.

edit 2: The moment you realize awakening only works for one unit, while reforestation works on all. .... and at 1 sp less
edit3: never mind, forgot about dispel.
Perfect 9

Rusty doesn't seem that special to me from what I've seen in Folrart. 2 Slots on a sacrificial unit that will delay activation of your SS and requires 1 SP for fruit or another Sacrificial unit with Prim? :? I think there are better openings.

What about mid game tanks to stall for end game?

What kind of file would that be? It's kind of hard to imagine playing that card at that stage of the match, especially for that purpose considering Gowen sphere.
