He is the secret weapon for healer teams with light valkyrie
Orion@PG 5 years ago ( 6.5.2 ) 
For anyone wondering why his healer subtype basically made every panty ever made super wet, it's because you can run a healer team with a L.Meta or Valk lead/friend lead with Valk sub and Raphael sub, along with either Ama, Angelion, Sandalphon, Zhuge Liang or King Shynee to get stupidly insane mono light burst damage.

Sample damage calculation.

Let's say you have two Valks as leads. This is 9x dmg flat. Coupled with 7.75x when you clear the whole board thanks to Raphael and Valk, and if you factor in King Shynee's 3x, this is:

9 x 7.75 x 3 = 209.25x.

If you were running dual Metas, this becomes 284.81x.

Let those numbers sink in. And make sure to change your pants. I hear they get wrinkly if you just let it soak in.
Greg! in reply to nathan@N17 5 years ago ( 6.5.5 ) 
Down votes for comparing to another leader who wasn't even in the discussion to begin with. Read Orion's reply to you. He explains it well, even giving credit to the Goemon team you mentioned, without even bashing you. And here you are going on and talking crap. Good job, guy.
Orion@PG in reply to nathan@N17 5 years ago ( 6.5.2 ) 
Did I compare it to a Goemon team? No, I did not. I did a quick damage calculation for Raphael on a healer team, and it's completely understandable that Goemon would have more dmg due to his leader skill and also stronger sub options. If the amount of burst is not enough for u, stick with your goemon team.

Except this allows for nearly 1000x if you add in a Unicorn and 2 row enhances. even if all monsters are around 1100 attack, thats still nearly 6.5 million damage.

I wish i would have rolled Zhuge Liang from that last godfest. Better stats and also enhances water orbs along with light orbs. (better than Unicorn i mean)
Davido in reply to Orion@PG 5 years ago ( 6.5.5 ) 
Hypothetically, with a team of ZhugeLiang/Valk/Raphael/Shynee/Amaterasu/ZhugeLiang,
You could have a huge light burst attack.
With 16x lead, 3x shynee, 7.75x valk+raphael, 2.8x zhuge light enhance, and 1.3x from three row enhances,
16 x 3 x 7.75 x 2.8 x 1.3 = 1354.08 damage multiplier
I'm not sure if I calculated it correctly, but if I am correct, then all the gods of the descends should be cowering in fear right now.

It may not be intuitive, but the healer subtype may help Raphael as a leader more than a bench member of a Valk or L. Meta team.A max skilled Raphael/Raphael team with a skill level 8 Unicorn, Valk, and 2Shynees would do a millionish damage every 8 turns. Alternatively, drop a shynee (assume the other is max skilled) and fill that last slot with whatever light healer you want and you've got a million damage every 12 turns. Pretty nice for a grind team.

this is NOT a great idea, raphael's 1.35 attack is just a joke, you will do more dmg doing 3orbs with lmeta than 30 with raphaels. His burst potential shines in already hight burst envirioment . If yu really need fast on-demand burst for light healers team - sub in Rei Sirius (2tpa, 9 (5 maxed) turns light orb row spawn skill)
Anon 5 years ago ( 6.5.2 ) 
Not bad. Especially for a mono-color team. You will have to stall for 16 turns or so the first time though. Once you get the cycle started it is possible to use the nuke every 8 turns, but if you did not charge the skills yet you'll obviously need to wait.

I am a big fan of Rei and use him regularly on my Izanagi teams, but he is a light column maker, not a row maker. With the column you just have to use either the top or bottom as your puck orb and you've got your first TPA locked. That said, he's of limited benefit if you're trying to use Raph's row enhances.

As somewhat of a Raphael "hater", I'd have to say he's definitely come a long way from what he used to be. Good? Yes. OP? Heck no. Still, the guy really changed for the good, although this is not enough to convince me that he is one of the "pro-tier monsters".

Something I've not seen a lot of comments on - his secondary attack. Giving him red makes him one of the best subs for the DQXQ team as well; there simply weren't any healers with a red secondary attack. His ability is horrible for her, but then again so is something like the red or dark valk's and they got used.

two recover binds are too much, I rather replace one with a row enhance or skill boost.

My idea team is

L.meta / valk / sandalphon / raphael / Zhuge Liang(for + orb) or unicorn /

for friends L.meta or valk or Zhuge Liang depends on your ability but i prefer L.meta cause her awoken.

By Nalgaeryn 5 years ago ( 6.5.2 ) 
The complaints about Raphael have often been that (a) having two bind reducing awakenings is relatively useless if he is bound, since he has no bind resist awakenings and (b) his active ability doesn't actually allow for more than one row attack, regardless of whether you want hearts for bind reduction or a heartbreaker for row attack.

The problem with this ultimate evolution is that the problem is exacerbated. Instead of being God and Light, he is now God, Healer, Light, and Red. his ability to become bound just increased dramatically, without any reduction.

Changing one of his bind reductions to bind resistance, and/or changing his active to changing the whole board to hearts+light would have been awesome and put him in the top tier.

Ceres is basically OP when it comes to eliminating binds (bind immune, bind reducing awakening, plus bind clearing and full heal active ability). So my suggested changes wouldn't be more extreme than that.
mccool37 5 years ago ( 6.5.2 ) 
So use Ceres on the team. Light Ceres is still a healer and would make a highly workable sub. In fact for me the team would go something like:
Light Valk (I don't have Metatron yet)
This guy
Light Ceres
Unicorn (ult)
King Shynee
and either a friend Light Valk or Light Metatron
(this isn't the greatest team admittedly but it should work fairly well)

This team gives the bind resistance of Ceres and LMeta while allowing for the full burst damage from the Raphael, Valk, Shynee, Unicorn combo (3 (Valk lead)x3.5 (LMeta lead)x3 (shynee active)x7.75 (full board clear)x2.8 (unicorn active)x 1.2 (both row enhance awakenings are added together before being multiplied in))=820.26x multiplier total. Assuming nothing cascades the total light damage (before enemy defense and element and assuming all are at full level with no pluses added to attack) is 5,188,188.

If you have an Lmeta then you don't need Ceres as using both actives will clear just about any amount of binds and she is unbindable so Ceres would be replaced with Valk and Lmeta would be in both leader positions giving a burst damage of 956.97 (replace Valk's 3 with 3.5) and a light damage (same criteria as above) of 6,955,307.

On a side note the bind reduction has no use when all of the heal orbs have been turned into light orbs.

I was honestly expecting much better stats and more/better Awoken skills (considering the material costs) and perhaps one more ult Evo with different subtype (Physical, Attacker or even balanced) and different/better leader skills.

Still red sub-color and healer subtype opens up many possibilities and makes him far more viable than before, but nowhere close to OP. Now if only his active had a lower CD...

Im thinking the two row enhance awakens make up for the fact that, unlike other mass orb changers, Raphael guarantees that you have 1 combo (excluding skydrops), getting rid of the combo damage multipliers that other leaders (like Ronia or 4 of the Chinese Gods) utilize.

By Bender 4 years ago ( 8.0.4 ) 
I use a double Raph team when I see a dungeon that a 4/1.82/4 team can beat consistently where a spike team would not be so consistent. Some dungeons are practically a guarantee such as Ocean God where double Raph is practically invincible. I've been noticing more and more dungeons where a 4/1.82/4 team would match up very well. So I'm deciding to put together a high end team.
Since I have both Raph and Lucifer, the question is: which one is better?
The answer is: Raph
The Raph dream team:

Double Raph
A. Venus
Da Qiao
L Valk

A hypermaxed team has around 88000hp and 22000rcv. Can tank a 130000!! hit with Sandal's active.
So hp and rcv are impressive, what about damage? With only 10800 atk and 1.82 multiplier what can this team really do? Notice how this team has 10rows and 4+orb awakenings. A simple and easy light board(Raph+LValk+Venus) combined with a Sandal active can hit for around 2,000,000. Not so bad. But the real gem is count all dark+red+hearts+light on the board. If it =18 then DQ+LValk+Venus+Sandal give you 3 light rows for 4,000,000dmg and Venus will give you 6 more seconds to line that up. Or if dark+heart+light =18 then use LValk first for the same combo. Make a couple of matches in between light rows and you have an easy 5,400,000 damage!!!
Here's the math because I'm sure ppl will doubt this.

1.82x 10800x1.63x1.75x2x2x3x2x2x2
leads X atk X 6+orbs X 6orb X Sandal X 2 for 5-combo X3X2X2X2 for 3 rows and 10row awakenings

A note on bind protection: Raph, Raph and DQ are heart makers with recover bind so you're fairly safe unless all 3 are bound.

I don't think Lucifer can touch this kind of damage or RCV or synergy. Which makes me wonder why there are so few Raph users and so many Lucifer users.

Guess I was shy of one row. Raphael is now the first unit in the game to have FIVE ROWS.

Also, his Active is now GREATLY buffed so that he also VOIDS DAMAGE FOR TWO TURNS. He's now also the first two-turn void damage man. Holy. Moly.

He's still bindable, though, so that kinda sucks. But with units like Awoken Sakuya, Awoken Amaterasu, or even L.Meta, there's no need to worry about that.

I'm actually excited for this formerly almost-useless card to come to NA. I have two of him. That's an automatic TEN ROWS.

I think a bone just snapped in me.

This also gives me (any many others whom Raph was sitting idle on his thumbs) a much better way to do Ultimate Hera Rush with those pesky 30k+ pre-emptive attacks.
Paul in reply to Greg! 4 years ago ( 8.1.1 ) 
I was just saying over on the other page, the only thing holding raph back are dungeons that require combos. i have never had the need for a full screen of hearts. After making them light, they are very useful. By themselves they are tremendously long waited big heal. His skill has only been useful when combined with another. I was hoping his active was changed to half light half heart or something.

Anyway, here's to mopping up KoG and similar.

A plus is that high enough in rank (I'm in the 180's) it becomes pretty easy to farm friday dungeon and using angelits provide decent exp too, especially since it's light exp.

Apologies to whom I offended, but I was mostly complaining about the uvo requirements. The amount of damage you can spike in a turn with a full board of enhanced light orbs and King Shynee enhance is massive, if you can pay the price of a Keeper of Gold and stall 23 turns.

I agree with Striker. I'd prioritize ultimate evolutions of other gods over skilling up Raphael (especially seeing how he still is not a god you'd use very often.) After all, those of us that tried Twinlit farming should know how screwed up the droprate for the bosses is.

As for Raphael's uvo, I'd say a KoG is worth it if he all of a sudden isn't "useless" anymore.
