PVE PVP Offense Defense
Atavaka.jpg Atavaka
Purple Teal Purple C F F
  • While alive, War Aid will prevent Pierce skills from going through Repel resistances. This is very useful when combined with demons that have a lot of natural Repels like Nyarlathotep or against popular attack elements like Phys like Gozu-Tennoh or Teal Gogmagog.
  • Intimidating Stance is a great passive for PvP and synergizes with his low AGI.
  • Enemy Annihilation fully debuffs enemies before chaining into a piercing Physical AOE sweep. Because the AOE is a chain effect, you will not lose Press Turns even if it misses and/or hits into Phys NDR + Anti-Pierce, allowing him to spam it without concern.
  • Weak to Ice unless Teal.
  • Very high MP costs. Running Divine sets hurt his overall damage and/or Bulk.
  • Does not have natural Pierce. This can cause issues with his AI attacking into Tetraka Shift and/or Physical NDR when out of MP or under Spirit Chains (Indignation).
  • Stiff competition from Demiurge, Yggdrasil and Kalki, who not only have both Drain Pierce and Repel Pierce, but also incredible support capabilities. Kalki and Yggdrasil even come with much stronger damage capabilities that Atavaka can only dream of.
  • Even the fusible Metatron outclasses Atavaka, as Metatron has higher bulk and damage potential while also having Repel Pierce.
  • Attribute affinity down completely shuts down his niche.

Repel Pierce

The glue that holds Repel teams together. You can replace Life with Divine if you wanna spam Enemy Annihilation or don't have Angra Mainyu. Epitome of Endurance can help lower team speed if you want to capitalize on IS heavily.
