Or do we still need to wait more time on this one.
I still haven’t selected my James or Christa, since as a small spender I don’t want one of the very few S-class Toons I will likely be able to acquire doesn’t end up just being useless and going to waste.
I have still collected every gold bar and knife etc. though.
I currently only run a Diego lead, which would seem to indicate to get James… But, I’m honestly not real convinced that he’s really good enough that he’ll have long-term staying power on my starting lineup. Honestly, even right now, with just all normal 6*s, it’s hard to find a spot for him, since he really doesn’t DO anything other than attack for a bunch of AOE damage with collateral damage.
Christa on the other hand SEEMS like she will have a lot of utility for a long time. That AR just absolutely crushes single target damage. Plus, active focus+def. down, not to mention the slow and heal reduction on AR. But, mostly the single target damage.
James’s AR could easily get absorbed and healed up in 1 turn, especially once more people have S class Pete and such. Then you’re basically just left with some (solid) bleeds, but unless your team is really set up for bleeds, 600 bleed doesn’t really seem like much of a difference maker.
OTOH, Christa’s AR should be practically guaranteed to get a kill even against toughhhh S classes, unless you’re blasting at something wayyyyy tanked up. And the focus, def down, slow, and heal reduction bonuses will ALWAYS be useful.
However, we haven’t even come close to seeing these toons’ full power yet, so maybe the jury is still out? I am still holding off my selection for at least a few more weeks in any case.
