New Employee – Ciel Marronier

Ciel is a Striker with very high base stats, allowing her to be played in 2 different ways: A Frontline in PVP, and a Defense Shredder in PVE.

In PvP Ciel is a durable but expensive striker frontline. That means she is only worth her cost when anti-striker damage threats is low. Her reflect on deploy gimmick is inconsistent and hard to use, especially with tank gear required from modern frontliners.

In PVE, Ciel’s primary strength is her innate tankiness, and her ability to shred 80% of an enemy’s DEF via her ult. While this 80% DEF shred only lasts for 4 seconds, this is usually long enough to burst a boss all the way down to zero in endgame content like DC. Her innate tankiness also allows her to run tank CDR gear instead of full tank gear, which is rare for a frontliner (in certain situations, she can even use full offensive CDR) . As a melee unit however, the current Tyrant Gigas will kill any melee units after some time, hence she falls short in the mode.

New Counter Pass – Lamda Spatari

Lambda is a Ranger with high survivability and a synergistic kit that gets stronger with Agnes. Unfortunately the synergy has been reduced to just 20% increased DMG on Lambda for their 8 total cost.

Her kit focuses on dealing a lot of DMG with basic attack while being hard to kill thanks to the 2 passive backstep. However her DMG even with Agnes does not exceed those who specializes in dealing damage so she remains as a low priority damage dealer.
