Ragnarok Mecha Dragon will be the 6th featured Monster Point Dragon and he comes as a bit of a surprise. For starters, he caps out at only 8 star rarity (compared to 9 stars for the rest) and as such, his value already feels decreased. However, what sets him apart will be the new God Killer awakening that boosts his own damage against god type enemies by 3x. In addition, will have lead or sub potential so he gains bonus points for flexibility.
As far as translations go:
Leader Skill: 4x damage when matching 4 attritbute, 4.5x with 5 attributes (not sure if heart orbs are included). In addition, 1.5x attack and recovery for machine types
- Amazing base health
- Unbindable, 2 , , awakenings
- God Killer awakening
- Board refresh (that generates hearts) and 1 turn haste
- 45.5x damage for machine types (6.75 * 6.75)
- 2.25x recovery for machine types to balance out their low base recovery
- Sub and leader potential
- Is a cyborg and killer robot “dragon”
- 0 base recovery
- Machine types are still rare and hard to build a synergetic team
- As a sub, feels inferior to other options (discussed below)
- Versus non-god type bosses will feel weak
- Not a pretty girl and barely looks like a dragon (Puzzle and Cyborgs?)
When team building as a lead, I would feel somewhat gimped in both the damage output and sub selection. Being restricted to only machine types will result in unideal team compositions and avoiding machines will cause lackluster output. Granted the newer GFE (eg. Australis ) and Constellation series (eg. Castor ) are machine type, they lack diversity and utility or are unsynergetic. In addition, without heavy plus egg investment, your recovery will be depressingly low as most machines have under 100 base recovery. To a certain extent, you can simply run your favourite rainbow subs and rely on ‘s awakening to mow down god bosses with 136.5x damage. Factoring in your awakenings will make for very scary damage. In addition, it will be hard to become orb trolled due to the board refreshes and wider range of elements needed for activation.
On the flipside, can be used in lieu of other board changers as a sub. However, his unsynergetic colouring and typing for rainbow teams, and being outclassed by other mono green board refreshes may keep him somewhat sidelined. The current most popular rainbow leads are Ra Dragon , Awoken Ra , Awoken Sakuya , and Light Kali . will somewhat suffer on and teams because he lacks a god type and fails to receive the additional leader skill bonuses. On , will feel like a poor man’s Dark or Light Kali. The unsynergetic colours along with worse awakenings than means he would most likely be overlooked. Finally, teams do not need another board refresh along with the wrong primary attribute. When used on a mono green team, the current top lead is Best Cat . However, teams will most likely choose either Verdandi or Awoken Meimei for board refreshes as they make statistically 2x more green along with having more synergetic awakenings overall. Granted can be abused for his awakening and thus pull ahead of either in damage on specific bosses.
I was hoping for a little more from the newest MP Dragon and feels a bit melodramatic and his one true power lies in his . Perhaps being a base 7 star (instead of 8) will lower his MP cost and make him more accessible for the average player. Don’t get me wrong, he is still powerful and will have uses, just not quite as ideal as other options you may have. Perhaps he will show his true power when more machine cards become available and dungeons are filled with god type bosses.
If you feel I am overlooking or missing any component, please feel free to comment and I will answer and modify my opinion as needed =)
