Lightning-fast Arrow Aurora: ASTRA Knights of Veda Character Guide #6

Lightning-fast Arrow Aurora is here! This guide explores her kit, skills, and potential in the game. Is she the right fit for your team?

Introduction

Lightning-fast Arrow Aurora is a Light-type Ranged DPS with a Large Bow. By dealing CRIT DMG to an enemy with her Normal ATKs, she gains the [Retribution] effect to amplify the DMG she deals. Her Normal Skill, [Arrow Festival], allows her to dodge backward while firing bolts of light to keep incoming enemies at bay. Her Signature Skill, [Light-Speed Kicks], deals AoE DMG around her, and dealing CRIT DMG for a period of time grants her the "Extermination" effect, allowing her to finish off enemies with even more power.

Every time the moonlight appears, Aurora vanishes suddenly, her true intentions known to none. She roams the world in search of the Book, concealing her innermost thoughts, leaving her true motives wrapped in mystery.

Lightning-fast Arrow Aurora Review

This is another five-star bow unit introduced in the game after Veleno, another bow user as well (I have no idea why the devs decided to do a back-to-back archer banner). Paired with Lucian, she exhibits exceptional synergy, maximizing light damage output (Lucian buffs light damages). Her kit boasts impressive features, including the [Retribution] effect, providing substantial buffs to attack, critical damages, and stamina regen.

Retribution effect details

Additionally, her strong attack charges swiftly, unleashing a flurry of arrows with immense hit output. This makes her a formidable DPS option, particularly when compared to other archers like Sarka. Aurora's versatility allows for diverse playstyles, emphasizing freedom in unit customization.

Conclusion

As for pulling for these Aurora's event banner, it ultimately depends on your roster needs. If you lack a reliable main DPS unit, Aurora could be a valuable addition. However, if you've already invested in similar units like Sarka, Veleno or even Eliyar, it may be more prudent to conserve resources.

Overall, Lightning-fast Arrow Aurora is a solid choice as a DPS unit but doesn't automatically replaces the other existing bow users. Let's recap:

  • This is a new five-star character
  • She can work well with Lucian because he buffs light damage (but it's always best to build a rainbow team)
  • Her normal attack seems good, and her strong attack has a fast charge and high hit output
  • Her Signature Skill [Light-Speed Kicks] makes her a strong DPS character that's fits the role as a boss-killer
