Sw lucile def need a rework for her aura passive. she's not the strongest SW.... aren't she suppose to be one?
I have a feeling that this was implemented because the developers want to lead us to making the revamped Royal Huntsman Class which is lacking in the current scene.
If you realise, heroes possessing useful aura or skills tend to have one thing off which is, they won't survive nor can the players fully utilise their passive aura unless they are being targeted.
This somehow reminds me of RH's skill which provide aggro to specific unit while providing buffs and shields.
Because Lucille Spirit Walker's skills imo, is a very PvE oriented skill:
Amplify - 25% to all enemies is a useful debuff in Raid.
Heal + CD Reduction (CDR) - is another extremely useful skill in Raid. Once you have an ideal skill roster in Raid, the next meta could be CDR (resulting in higher DPS) VS the current SDD.
Another good example would be Kiera Mind Warder.
Her passive is similarly to ask someone to hit her even though we all know mystics are known to be quite soft. But Kiera Mind Warder's shines at skill delays which is a very favorable kit in Raid as well. Pairing her with any RH class and if you don't mind me, including a Lucille Spirit Walker is almost the same as introducing a new meta.
CDR and Skill Delays can be use both offensively or defensively.
*This is just an example for a normal boss fight*
A Guardian, take HD Darrion for example (Tank + Cleanse), An RH Class (Aggro & Support) + Kiera MW (Skill Delay) + Lucille SW (CDR) + Assassin Shizu (Refresh)
1. Have Shizu in the center because you want her to be able to refresh either the Kiera or Lucille. *not sure if amplification stacks with Lucille, someone can try it out first*
2. RH must be standing beside the unit you wish to be aggro since you want to enjoy his passive aura, in this case, in between Shizu (if she crits again, her nearby units get refreshed) or Kiera for skill delay or Lucille if you want.
How this formation work is as long as Kiera's skill delays proc and Shizu's refreshes, you will be given extra time for your skills to cool down. Your attacker in this case would be your Shizu in this case given how she deals extra damage when enemies' below 40% hp.
If you want to pair RH with Lucille, won't Archbishop be a better choice? She can cast invulnerability on any ally you aggro on, and her healing aura is more consistent. (Spiritwalker's aura only trigger once in enemy phase, and once in own phase)
On a side note, I found out that amplify can be resisted by weak unit.
Yes! That's a really good point you've made. You see, the beauty of VF is you can experiment a wide diversity of formation.
Using AB is a good option because she can ensure the survivability of her team.
The above reference is only to show an example of how Lucille SW can be put into play because her passive requires her to be hit. Also to show her combination with Kiera and Shizu in this case to make "Haste" useful in various scenario.
