  1. How can you have two teams titled “Boss Killer” and Angela isn’t on either team? Lucent Beam+ the true boss killer.

  2. Hello, just wanted to share my experiences on teams. After finishing the game 2 times for the 6 stories, i started thinking about “how to kill everything badly, even in hard mode”.
    So, i’m currently destroying the hard mode with my First team opti, it’s :
    Duran : Edelfrei
    Riesz : Fenrir Knight
    Hawkeye : Nomad
    The strat is : Duran has insane power as Edelfrei, because you increase your weapon power by 15%, and you can go berserk, sacrifice your def for great power. You can go +70 atk -70 def, because of Riesz sharing hers. And you can build Critical as Edelfrei.
    Riesz perma debuff the armor of all ennemis / boss in 1 action, and it’s Op cause now Duran hit even harder.
    Hawkeye is here for dps buffs, with auras + random buffs at strat for free + increase critical chance for Duran, which is going even more crazy.

    When i’m done with this team, probably tomorrow for classe 4 and all, going to start another one, magical version, will talk about that later 🙂
