Halloween Xiang Mei Review and Analysis

Introduction

Halloween Xiang Mei 3222 has been released in North America and is one of the 8-star rolls from the Halloween REM along with being available for purchase for 500,000 MP. As this will be an important decision for many players, I wish to take this opportunity to measure the pros and cons of Halloween Xiang Mei along with team building options and how she fits in today’s meta.

When Xiang Mei (Orchid) Xiang Mei was released, she shook up the meta due to being able to form a system, have spectacular burst damage, and possessing high survivability due to the HP multiplier and high base recovery. Unfortunately, the pace of powercreep has continued to grow by leaps and bounds and if you look at the JP tier lists, fire Xiang Mei has almost been completely removed. This can be misleading as she is by no means weak, but instead, is not as strong as the other options currently available (the tier list also assumes perfect teams). Xiang Mei can still clear plenty of content, but she is faltering when compared to the heart-cross leaders.

With all this in mind, how can a dark/devil equivalent Xiang Mei fare in today’s meta? Furthermore, with the inclusion of dark devils, your team building and playstyle does not have to mirror her fire cousin.

Halloween REM Review and Analysis

Introduction

Some people love ghosts and goblins, others prefer fiends and ghouls; however, for all of you Puzzle and Dragons lovers, you probably love Puzzle and Waifus the most. This year’s Halloween Rare Egg Machine features returning favourites as well as new characters festively dressed up for the occasion. Let’s just hope that the only scary thing you encounter is a mischievously dressed up child and not next month’s Visa statement.

Many of the featured cards are coloured-swapped characters who have received various buffs and like the Beach or Wedding REM, which grants them new uses and viability.

Impressions

When the fire Xiang Mei Xiang Mei was released, she completely shook up the meta as she was the next level of powercreep as she was able to form a system, deal spectacular damage, and was tanky by those standards. However, the level of powercreep has also evolved at a nearly unprecedented pace and a 2.25x HP leader is no longer durable in today’s meta. If you look at the JP tier lists, fire Xiang Mei has almost been completely removed. This can be misleading as she is by no means weak, but instead, is not as strong as the other options currently available (the tier list also assumes perfect teams). Xiang Mei can still clear plenty of content, but she is faltering when compared to the heart-cross leaders. Continue reading Halloween REM Review and Analysis
