Which Ruby Droplet?

Postby Melmo » July 21st, 2014, 8:56 am

Hey fellow battlers, there was a thread started a long time ago that was discussing the best ruby droplet breed. There was lots of trials from several folks... I have an H/H and maybe I just don't use her correctly but she just seems average to me. Some people preferred the H/S over the H/P and vice versa. Is there anyone who has battled with these breeds extensively and has hands down OP triumphant victories with one breed over the others?

Imho, the most useful abilities of Ruby Droplet is: Absorb, Bubble and Blood Drain. Only Absorb scales with power, and a very miniscule amount. So not really useful for it.

Some people advocate the H/S breed due to sometimes being able to bubble before a big hit comes. But imo the problem with that is that bubble have a meaty 8 round cd and you wont be able to use it as a reliable counter.

I believe H/H is the way to go. As it gives you a higher max health. And when you combine it with Sunlight weather, its tanking ability simply goes through the roof! At this point, a sunlight buffed Blood Drain restores nearly 1000hp per cast. Easilly allowing you to fill up to your sunlight empowered max health. A true health tank, while steadilly eroding the opponent with Absorb and Blood Drain.

Thank you for the informative response! I definitely wasn't using her right, LOL. I will keep my H/H then :)

A curious mention about Blood Drain. Due to it dealing %damage, it ignores damage reductions.

And the more max health the enemy have, the more damage it deals. Making Sunlight an absolutely potent addition to a Ruby Droplet.
