Blood Blade Karin Stats

Characters Average Stats

PROS & CONS

Great as a fodder farmer

Excels in PvP by being a cleaver (needs good gear)

Gets stronger as she loses health

Pairs up well with Aux Lots and attack buffers

Low base defense

3rd skill costs 20% of her health

Requires heavy investment to shine

Tier List Description

Bloodblade Karin is a PvP oriented unit, but can also excel in Boss Hunts, particularly Golem. Her basic attack has lifesteal and she can sustain herself at low health. Put on a lifesteal set and she is really self sufficient.

She becomes dangerous at low health, improving her attack, defense and speed at intervals of 75%, 50% and 25%. She does have very low defense, so you will definitely want to get some health or defense to beef her up or she will die easily.

In PvP, she can be used as a cleave unit to either clean up or start the battle to weaken enemies. She does require molagora investment to shine though. The buffed Blood Blade Karin is now scary as the damage multipliers are even better now.

PvP Cleave:

ARENA TEAMS

Comments

Here are some things I picked up testing her in arena:

– ML Lidica is a hero of convenience. She provides many benefits for your team, but there are comparable specialist that provides the same.
– She’s a jack-of-all-trades excelling at none. Mind you, this does not make her weak at all due to her wide coverage as an opener.
– She’s able to completely cripple a single enemy on offense (if immunity is removed)
– A target speed of 245+ and 85% effectiveness should be enough for her to perform her role.

Comparison vs “Specialists”:

– ML Lidica is equipped with a team-wide CR boost with a base speed of 114. Judith is equipped with a team-wide CR boost with a base speed of 117.
– ML Lidica can AOE dispell 1 buff with a base speed of 114. ML Baal, Violin-Dizzy can dispel 1 buff with a base speed of 115. Basar has a base speed of 108 and Hurado base speed of 111. Both can AOE dispell all buffs.
– ML Lidica is able to completely inflict max CDR preventing them from using skills with a base speed of 114. ML Cidd is able to silence 1 character with a base speed of 128. Assassin Coli is able to stun 1 character wit ha base speed of 126.
– ML Lidica is essentially a jack-of-all-trades type of character. Her amount of coverage allows her to be extremely versatile, making her a hero of convenience. Her kit grants her a lot of coverage that are sought after for openers. One would not fall behind if they pass on her banner. If you do manage to pull her, she wont be a bad investment either.

Pros:
– 2nd fastest CR booster in the game with a base speed of 114 (tied with Roozid)
– She can AOE and CR boost at the same time (great with CDom)
– S2 grants 20% CR to all allies and 100% CR to herself in arena
– S2 remove 1 buff from all enemies
– S3 increases a single enemy’s CD to the max
– Auto AI will always S2 before S3
– Jack-of-all-trades type character

Cons:
– S2 will remove ML Cecelia’s barrier before removing enemy’s immunity buff.
– S3 can be resisted by immunity buff/high effectiveness
– Requires very high speed/effectiveness investment
– Can be baited by dark characters on defense/auto
– Can be shut down by an agile Assassin Cidd or Assassin Coli

Here are some tips and tricks that I picked up from cleaving this setup:

  • This set up consist of 3 DPS and 1 Support

  • DJ Basar S3 can fully cleanses your team from harmful effects if Basar gets outsped

  • DJ Basar S3 also gives all allies 3 turn immunity which protects your team from being provoked by a counter

  • Guided Aither can soften 1 target and give an attack buff to all allies

  • Judge Kise and BBK can simply overwhelm the defensive team with raw their raw DPS

  • The main appeal for this comp is the absence of a “defense break” requirement for cleaving durable stall comps

Pros and Cons

Pros:

  • Very safe to cleave with

  • No effectiveness required

  • No defense break required

  • No immunity set investment required

  • No Hurado/Basar buff removal is required

  • Desert Jewel Basar build can be used on both offense and defense as well as all content

Cons:

  • Desert Jewel Basar is extremely hard to get

  • Very high gear investment is a must (High Crit/Speed)

  • This exact team composition will be difficult to recreate

  • This specific team comp will be countered by Moonlight Ken

HERO BACKGROUND

Karin is embroiled in an endless battle against the will of a cursed magical sword, compelled by its power to cause trouble. Though aggressive and cold-hearted while possessed by the sword, she sometimes escapes from the control of it and shows an unexpected side.
