With the Dragon and Tortoise event coming to a close, we are given a few weeks without an event to farm. But instead we will be greeted with a new main story chapter and a guide task. Alongside introducing 1 new character banner and 2 returning students. In this article, we will briefly go over whether Minori is worth pulling for or saving for another banner.
Minori is a Permanent Explosive Special Student who has generally found usage as an AoE damage dealer and buffer in Explosive teams for her Sub Skill. As a Special damage dealer, you will want to have her Unique Equipment at 50 for the additional damage boost.
On release, Minori will not find a lot of usage in most Explosive raids as there are usually better options available. However, for the upcoming raid Gregorius, Minori is the premier pick up for that raid due to her high AoE damage output. In addition to this, team building for Gregorius is stricter than other raids, as it requires several debuffers for mechanics such as Servant of the Servants of the Saint.
A more In-depth review about Minori will be available soon.
Now that we know what Minori provides to the team, is she worth pulling for?
First and foremost, if Minori is your favorite student, then don't let this guide stop you from pulling her. As at the end of the day it is your game and account.
For newer players and non-competitive players, No. While Minori is a strong pick-up for Gregorius, at the end of the day, she is just another damage dealer that you can borrow from other players. In addition to this, Minori wants to have Unique Equipment 50 to maximize her damage output, since she can't be buffed by traditional supports like Ako and Himari.
But for players who wish to be competitive or do Torment Gregorius, Maybe. If you lack debuffers and need to borrow one, having your own Minori will be essential to clearing the raid. However, if you have enough debuffers with good investment levels, it is possible to do Gregorius Torment with 1 team, allowing you to just borrow Unique Equipment Lv50 Minori.
