Role Summary

Name Best Archetype(s) PVE PVP Democalypse
PVE PVP Offense Defense Prelim Boss
Fafnir.jpg Fafnir
Teal Teal 1 3 3 1 1
Pros
  • Golden Greed automatically breaks Barriers and inflicts Poison on the enemy team at the start of their turn. This works regardless of whether Fafnir's team goes first.
    • This timing strikes during the short window where Demeter's Bulwarks (and thus her team's ailment immunity) may be offline.
  • With skill levels, Golden Greed increases Poison's damage from 5% HP fractional to 25% HP fractional, applying at the end of each demon's turn. This elevates Poison from a minor annoyance to a legitimate threat.
  • Panels 2 and 3 grant him 50% damage reduction from Poisoned enemies, making it difficult for the foe to kill him to disable Golden Greed.
  • Teal ups his Elec resistance to Repel, helping his bulk against Zeus teams.
Cons
  • Weak to Elec (unless Teal) and Ice.
  • No Phys Pierce until panel 3.
  • No boosts to attack damage in his kit, plus Blight's power being low, means his high STR is under-utilized.
  • Underwhelming if Poison does not land - neither the Poison damage pressure nor his vs-Poison bulk will apply in that case.
  • Ailments aren't helpful in lategame PvE, due to inflated enemy stats.
Notes
  • Since his main niche is chain effects before the enemy can act, you want to string together as many as possible:
    • P4 Nergal + Hachiman chains Poison into team-wide Might (Nergal) + Phys AoE (Nergal P4) + Zenith (Hachiman) + another Phys AoE (Hachiman) + team-wide Might again (Hachiman P2). This can apply a huge amount of damage pressure.
    • Fafnir + Kabuso + p3 Lilith creates a combo of Poison + Charm + Bind. If Kabuso is not available, Gurr can chain Bind from Poison.
  • To counter Demeter, Fafnir's team needs to go first, so that Demeter's start-of-battle Bulwark wears off when her team's turn comes up.
