Straze is the premier PvE hero that is used by many players to clear the Golem Dungeon, Banshee Dungeon, and even the Caides Hunt. With the new changes, Straze can also be potentially used in PvP as a solid cleaver that cannot be countered by the likes of Rem, Violet, etc. His condition of penetrating defense based on the difference between his Attack and enemy Attack is also significantly reduced to give players an ample opportunity to use him in every team composition and not just against tanky teams.

Ravi

Ravi will see the following Balance changes in her skills:

Demon’s Blood – Starts the first battle with 40 Fighting Spirit.

Increases the caster’s Attack and Effectiveness by 15% when they attack or are attacked. This effect can only stack up to 5 times.

Devil Drive (Awakened) – Brutally attacks all enemies, with a 75% chance to stun for 1 turn, decreasing Combat Readiness of stunned enemies by 100%. Penetrates the target’s Defense by 50%. The damage dealt by this skill has been decreased.

Ravi’s Exclusive Equipment Option 2 – Has a 70% chance to make the enemy unable to be buffed for 1 turn when using Slaughter.

Ravi was quite the menace on the battlefield due to her innate tankiness and the ability to regenerate HP for herself when hit. After the introduction of heroes like Summer Break Charlotte and water cleavers like Ran and Peira, her usability in the PvP areas has been non-existent. With the new buffs, she will be able to increase her Attack and Effectiveness as she is attacked more, giving rise to beefier Ravi’s that can be built with higher Defense and HP instead of full Attack. This will strengthen her role more as a bruiser rather than DPS, just like Smilegate did with Choux in the past with their balance adjustments.
