Yomi or Ra Dragon with my first 300k Monster Points?

I have almost completely made my mind up what I should do with my first 300k Monster Points as I was lucky with the 4x GFE rates this past godfest. I am actually very excited and have been researching both Yomi Dragon Yomi Dragon and Ra Dragon Ra Dragon to try and determine who would be the best fit for my box and playstyle. I am only 1 skill up away from hypermaxing Elia Elia and completing my Awoken Sakuya Sakuya team pictured below. It is rare to be able to complete a team in PAD and the satisfaction I will have with the final skill up will be a glorious thing. As such, I wish to expand and branch out to a different team as Sakuya will most likely not have any roster changes any time soon.

Sakuya Dream Team
Tada!

My goal is to develop another end game team who is capable to clearing current content should my Sakuya encounter issues. Both  Yomi Dragon and  Ra Dragon are rated as top tier leads who both have the capacity to clear all the content PAD has to offer and I wish to weigh the pros and cons of using either along with my suitability based on my monster box.

Yomi D stats
Not mine XD

Yomi Dragon Yomi Dragon has a playstyle similiar to Awoken Yomi Awoken Yomi as both leads require you to match 5 connected orbs with at least one being enhanced. Yomi Dragon is vastly superior due to consistency because Awoken Yomi requires 7 combos to reach maximum damage potential. I have an Awoken Yomi team and enjoy the playstyle, but feel constricted by the lack of consistency and low recovery. As such, I am very tempted to purchase Yomi Dragon as it will allow me to develop and learn a new team.

Pros:

  • Unbindable along with bind recovery Recovery Bind awakening
    • This completely removes the need to bring a bind clear sub as Yomi Dragon ‘s active can generate 4 heal orbs and a single row of hearts will remove 6 turns of binds
  • Powerful and synergetic active
  • 2.25x recovery for god type monsters
  • Easy to activate 36x damage with only restriction is having 5 dark orbs
  • Can create teams with numerous haste actives and thus spamming skills
  • 2 time extend Time Extend and 1 Skill Lock Resist awakenings
  • Team building is flexible and only restricts you to using god type dark monsters
  • Less ugly than Ra Dragon Ra Dragon

Cons:

  • Lowish damage? Really would not be an issue when you have 9+ dark orbs so there may be some reliance on actives
  • Kind of ugly and does not fit the Puzzle and Waifus theme

Ra D stats

Ra Dragon Ra Dragon is the king of rainbow leads as he offers an unbelievable 144x  damage to god types when matching red, blue, green, yellow, purple, and heart orbs. Everything will essentially fall over and you will most likely overkill anything when proc-ing your leading skill. Unfortunately, Ra Dragon comes with a high skill cap along with specific and restrictive subs

Pros:

  • 144x damage for a relatively easy to active leader skill (“easy” when compared to other 100x leads)
  • 2.25x recovery along with very high base stats
  • 2 two prong TPA awakenings push your damage even higher
  • Time Extend awakenings to help ensure you match your 6 elements
  • Unbindable

Cons:

  • Lacks a Skill Lock Resist awakening and puts a strain on team building in order to achieve 100% resistance
  • Sub pool is very constricted and relies heavily on having 2 Dark Kalis Dark Kali for constant board refreshes
  • Highest chance of any lead to be orb trolled
  • Even uglier than Yomi Dragon

MP shop

So now the big question is what am I going to purchase? When deciding which MP Dragon to invest in, you should look at your potential sub pool. A leader, no matter how powerful, is going to falter without ideal subs. For myself, I already have a powerful rainbow leader in Awoken Sakuya Sakuya along with 0 Dark Kalis Dark Kali . Therefore, if I were to buy Ra Dragon , I would be missing all of the important subs with the exception of Awoken Isis Isis along with not being able to branch out and experience different team playstyles. As such, I will purchase Yomi Dragon because I have a stronger sub pool along with wanting to experience a new type of team and gameplay.

Purchasing Yomi D
Here we go!
My Yomi D
Ahhhh *screaming in Japanese*

Okay, that gave me quite the adrenaline rush! My first MP dragon and I now have a new project to work on. It will mostly be trying to 297 everything I can and here are some tentative teams I may try to run. I am open to team building feedback as my experience here is more limited when deciding on ideal subs.

Dark Box
Any input is greatly appreciated!
Yomi D 1
Z8 isnt a god, but is max skilled
Yomi D 2
25 percent gravity may be useful?
Yomi D 3
Shield and board refresh all day
Yomi D 4
Too many orb changers?
Yomi D 5
Haste all day?

  1. For people without the second YomiDra, Akechi/Haku/Okuni/Stratios seems to be the base Arena team and Akechi/Haku/Okuni/Pandora for non-Arena. You’ve got Haku, Okuni, and Pandora, so that’s a good start. After that, Stratios can be used for Arena, and for non-Arena I guess you could use DMeta.

    1. Yeah that makes sense. Only large concern I may have with using Haku without any enhancing active is being left with a board that cannot be activated as no purple are enhanced. I am going to presume the frequent haste actives compensate for the lack of orb changers?

  2. I main Sakuya too and I don’t have any Kalis…. I’ll just sit over here, super jealous, and cuddle my Fat Chocobo. I’m saving my MP in hopes of a Valentine’s day r/l Kali.

    Wish we could trade GFE dupes in for specific gfes.

    Congrats on Yomidra!

    1. Yeah it makes it quite challenging to use Sakuya in this day and age without a Kali. I rolled my first one near her release time a year ago? My 2nd one was only 1.5 months ago or so. But fear not, you can still clear lots of content without the Kali board, just need to be more careful.

      At least with the MP shop, you can get something out of selling dupes…and thank you! I just 297 him so getting excited =D
