Yeah I am only running 2 bonus drop people as is (I only have 4 options; Hein and Alemda are in andSilver Wolf and someone else are on the bench). I should try to do some runs with clannies.
But I also think I know the problem. Right now, Cherie (with Faction buff from Ledin) cannot reliably one shot an archer with Lightning. Lightning Speed, with it’s 1.6 multiplier, seems to work. So I can kill the first, and then go for the second. If I fail to kill the second, sometimes things go sideways but not always. If I do not kill the first (which auto battle seems to sometimes do), its up for grabs as Cherie gets nuked on the enemy turn. Sometimes Ledin et al in the bottom prevail, sometiems they don’t, sometimes I run out of turns.
So I am working on getting her damage up. I decided to go ahead and use an SSR spirit on Last Knight and it’s current level 44. I also upgraded Esoteric Slate to 40, and redid a couple of enchantments. I’ve already boosted her attack by a couple dozen probably. It’s a very close thing, but it would be even better if I could do this without needing Vindication up (I have to start manual because Auto will use Divine Guard first and then if Cherie gets the two kills I can auto).
Also, I really wish it was possible to condense hammers a higher value hammer, just to spare all the damn clicking for upgrading items.
