Now that I am able to record pretty videos without horrible audio, I decided to share my thoughts and strategies of how I have been using Skill Inheritance on Mantastic. As I have repeatedly stated, you do not need to use Skill Inheritance on every single monster. You only need to use Skill Inheritance when you wish to upgrade an existing active skill, protect yourself against skill delays, or to use a certain sub who has favourable awakenings/stats and in need of a different active to counter a specific dungeon mechanic. I strongly encourage you to read my Skill Inheritance Basics and Advanced Strategies post.
Video with examples
Explanation of the video
Sometimes videos go too slow or fast, so here is a full recap of all the examples and rationale for my Skill Inheritance choices. My choices were based upon my own box needs as well as the type of content I challenge. These examples may not be 100% applicable to your situation so feel free to exercise your creativity or ask me for feedback.
Protecting against skill delays:
This example can be used for any card you have dupes of and have no additional use for. By Inheriting the same active, you are effectively protecting yourself against skill delays provided your monster is charged up beyond the base monster’s cooldown. The assistant monster acts as an extension of your cooldown and if fully charged, has the exact same effect.
Upgrading an active
Wedding Izanami is a phenomenal light shielding option and her ability to reduce incoming damage by 35% for 3 turns on a 6 turn cooldown is simply Fantastic. By having her inherit Awoken Susano , you can have access to a stronger shield if you are able to wait for the extended cooldown as well as protecting yourself against delays.
Gaining new utility
Claire is a wonderful (and pretty) dark sub who has a short base cooldown of 5 turns. This is great as you are able to rapidly gain access to dark orbs; however, you can use her as a base through Skill Inheritance and gain new utility for your team. By gaining Awoken Karin’s active, I am able to combo off of my other dark subs to produce a 2/3 dark board.
Awoken Lucifer is a powerful leader who has a lackluster active. As such, his team was greatly improved with Skill Inheritance as you are now able to gain a useful active and expand your utility or offensive capabilities. I strongly suggest either inheriting an orb changer or damage enhance such as Awoken I&I .
Awoken Venus has an amazing body, but a relatively underwhelming active. Her awakenings and base stats are favourable for my Awoken DQXQ team and I like having Light Kali’s active as my sole board changer for coop with Fantastic.
Lakshmi is in the same boat as Awoken Lucifer: powerful leader with a lackluster active. As such, I decided to inherit an active the guarenteed me a lethal board when combo-ed with Ryune as I am now able to generate a 2/3 water, 1/3 heart board through Hatsume .
Take all of my examples with a grain of salt. This is what works for me based upon my unique teams and situations. You do not have to use the exact same compositions if it is unfavourable to do so. However, you should have hopefully walked away from all of this with some new ideas of how you can better use Skill Inheritance.
Let me know how you have been using Skill Inheritance as well as what you plan to do moving forward.
