I always find these kinds of guides to be super helpful for setting up goals for your units. Here are my “meta” units.
Arbiter Vildred Gear Build
Generally built with 4k Att / 300 C damage / 200+ Speed. Can be built tankier combined with MLDB for arena & guild war defense to survive extinction units. Currently mine has no imprints so can still get some attack on him. There are Arbys out there with 5k Att 300 C dam. and 230 Speed.
Specter Tenebria Gear Build
Lots of fun ways to build this unit. Can be deceptively tanky with Chatty artifact + immunity offset, Decent stats all around with 200 speed, or a pure nuker. Personally went for pure DPS as I use her in my speed team. Her high defense allows me to pick her in my normal comps against teams with little to no AoE/debuffs. Currently has S imprint.
Remnant Violet Gear Build
I built my Riolet with high speed solely to counter A vildreds and sometimes Dienes (Usually won’t 1 shot her unless she’s squishy for some reason but will do enough damage to finish her off with other units). Slow Riolets should be on immunity offset with way more offensive stats. I do think 230+ speed is important on him but tankier riolets can be slower. (1.2k Def, 14k hp) Ideally I’d have him on Violet Talisman but I don’t have that maxed. Need to imprint him to max his crit chance. Gear: https://imgur.com/a/w5bsMmv
Briar Witch Iseria Gear Build
She hits like a truck. But would rather use J. Kise over her in most scenarios. Hard counters any kind of Ass Cart teams but gets countered by A Vildred so have something in preparation for that. Debuffs are fairly helpful too. I have her on Portrait because it does more damage than drink. Used with Aux lots. 0 imprints on her.
Apocalypse Ravi Gear Build
Fast counterset is the best way to build her imo. Slow counterset is not going to be enough. I have her on crimson seed because she is decently fast. Still waiting on a better ring to get her crit subs exactly where I want it. Her defense is lacking so would love to add more whenever I find the gear. Aim for HP, Crit % Crit damage + Speed subs. Some att is beneficial to her as well. 0 imprints on her.
Fallen Cecilia gear build
I’ve rebuilt this unit many times over. First I tried 22k hp with 100% crit + 300 crit damage, then 30k HP tank but 170 speed. Finally I’ve reached a middle ground with a focus on speed. Once I finish i90’ing her gear she should be able to contest and outspeed A Vildreds which I do think is important. 0 imprints on her.
Martial Artist Ken Gear Build
Tank ML Ken > Crit % ML Ken. It is so much more important that your ML Ken stays alive rather than crit’ing on his S3. Immunity is mandatory on this unit unless you can get his ER 150+ but even then it might not be enough nowadays. I have been considering building him with very high ER + Strak Gauntlet to counter heavy CC teams. Would definitely like more defense on him. 0 imprints on him
Challenger Dominiel Gear Build
Att, Crit damage, 50% crit chance and speed is all you need on her. You want her with high speed to outspeed Elena. SSS Imprint.
Faithless Lidica Gear Build
Posting u/AnomanderRaked ‘s F. Lidica because his is just better than mine. 270 Speed is the bare minimum you want for her. Very important to get her to 100% crit chance and high effectiveness too to reset units like Ruele + ML Basar. I personally have her on Sasha Ithanes for team CR cycling.
Ruele of Light Gear Build
I built her with high ER to resist units such as F lidica, F. Kluri, etc. Though even with 200%+ ER its not guaranteed and sometimes you’ll get debuffed. Waters Origin to make up for her slow speed. 180+ Speed Rueles will want Touch of Rekos generally. 0 imprints on her.
Judge Kise Gear build
Just the bare minimum to cleave teams. Gets the job done but I definitely do need to get her crit chance to 100% someday. Used with Aux Lots. She does have good base speed can be built with 280+ speed to ruin your cool downs. 0 imprints.
Little Queen Charlotte gear build
My LQC is scuffed. An incredibly hard unit to build because she has no crit chance awakenings. I have a lot of wasted stats on her (50% ER) that needs to be converted to def + HP + speed. Aim for 1.3k Def + 12-14k HP. Ideally want her on Siguards Scythe but I don’t have any extra copies. 0 imprints.
Specimen Sez gear build
Just used as an Arby deleter. Oath key to counter any MLDB shenanigans. With Att buff can generally 1 shot most Arbys even against Aurius unless that Arby is deceptively tanky with F ceci shields. If I ever pull ML Aramintha I’ll be speed tuning this unit with her. 0 imprints.
Holiday Yufine gear build
I personally really do like this new unit. Counters Basar and brings a good amount of utility in terms of cleansing, CR pushing + applying burns + stuns from artifact every now and then. I do think immunity is important on her since Abyssal Crown can still stun on miss. I have her with high speed, good defensive stats and decent att. S imprints.
Seaside Bellona gear build
This is the best way to build her imo. Aim for good Att, high defense, high hp, high crit + crit damage. (Don’t neglect on crit damage) I know some people have her on the abyss 88 lifesteal set. Just make sure to use a c damage neck if you do go that route. Just for clarification she is currently on def%/health%/att% right side gear. I have some effectiveness on her as she’s in my W13 team. SSS imprints.
Krau gear build
General all purpose tank. ER is very important on him. Don’t skimp out on ER. After i90’ing his gear he’ll be at 150% ER which I think is the minimum for him. Main subs you want to look for are HP, Speed, ER and Def. 0 imprints.
Alencia gear build
A very standard Alencia Bruiser Build. Aim for 20k HP 200 Speed and Good crit chance + crit damage. You don’t really need that much effectiveness on her so aim for HP, Crit % Crit damage and speed. A imprints.
