Actually 2.5x for all isn't good cuz you have too be above 50% and it's pretty weak for a hp condition. Its much better for him to gain a higher multiplier with a bit more restrictions and be an actually usable leader because there are too many other leads that offer the same multiplier plus more.
Destroyer 4 years ago ( 7.5 ) 
Yeah his art is really well detailed, but he loses his amazing leader skill!
By bangbangPF 5 years ago ( 6.4.5 ) 
His attack effectively went up by 175.

Before he had 1326 main light plus 1326 X 0.3 = 398 sub dark attack for 1724 attack.
Now he has ~ 1726 main light plus 1726 X 0.1 = 173 sub light attack for 1899 attack.

Also gained attacker type. No new awakenings, less element coverage. His leader skill is barely usable on any kind of light team I can think of. What's the niche for this ultimate evolution? Is he now a sub on the deadly light attacker team? (With Athena and Unicorn doing work). Is he a leader on the deadly devil team of 12.25 with an off color lead? It seems like some of the more balanced devil leader skills out there would be superior. And in that case losing dark subtype is a negative.

Maybe he's slightly more useful on a light row enhance team being all light damage. But that won't be realistic until NA gets a chance to skill him up (plus his orb change overlaps with wukong).

Well, Loki and Lu Bu welcome non-Dark devils. And with my usual treat-everything-as-Sandalphon's-territory mentality (my suspension of disbelief ends, among other things, at believing one creature can be in two places at once, even if only about twelve feet apart), I do wonder how a Baal-and-Loki-led (extra recovery) or Baal-and-Lu Bu-led (extra HP) team would do.

I wouldn't be surprised, though, if the reason the archdemon ultimates (at least, the ones so far; no absolute guarantee that Astaroth and Archdemon Lucifer will follow suit) are sub-light rather than sub-dark is Gung Ho trying to rein in the sheer power of devil teams by removing at least one multiplicative factor. In essence, this is meant to be more a moderate power increase than sky-high increase.

(And to be fair, in order to know how much the skill can be used on the Japanese side, we'd need to know how frequent the Shinra Bansho collaboration is over there.)

I agree, he likely could pair reasonably well with Lu Bu or Loki. But where is the synergy? What is light row enhance going to do on a devil team, or a blue to light orb conversion?
I'm sitting on an awoken level 99 baal that I can count on my fingers how many times I've used. I wanted this evolution to give me an excuse to change that, but I don't think it will.
Skyknight in reply to bangbangPF 5 years ago ( 6.4.5 ) 
I suppose the trick might be to somehow cobble together a devil team that's equal measures light and dark--I'd forgotten about the awakened traits, although I have a low enough opinion of min-maxing as is (and am currently more interested in finding healers than devils, courtesy the existence of Sun Quan...). Only problem is that I'm only seeing Hellray, Hera-Sowilo, and Chaos Venus. That's something, at least, although getting Venus is kind of chancy. On the other hand, I wonder if Gung Ho's decided to set the seeds for devil retinues that specialize in elements besides dark. They have to start somewhere, after all...

I have Baal myself, who's mostly a subordinate for an Artemis team.

Could do Baal, Baal, Chaos Venus, Awoken Hera-Sowilo, King Baddie, Baal

Not the most synergistic team for actives but you get 2k+ recovery, 15k HP, Light orb enhance, 10 second orb move, a little autorecovery, 8 row enhances, and 120,000 attack power or so. If you have the 177 team cost you probably have a better main team already, but it would be fun to see 8 light row awakenings with a bunch of +yellow orbs and a x3 active.
db in reply to Skyknight 4 years ago ( 7.2.3 ) 
D/L Lilith and the chibi version are possible sub's for baal as well. I know people look for synergy on teams but sometimes a little out of place helps. I have l/d Venus and use her all the time on my devil team. Her off color and TPA provide sniping ability, and her active make sure I get the most out of ronia's board. Point is Baal and other non dark/red devils can be good sub's.
Exordium in reply to Skyknight 4 years ago ( 7.8.1 ) 
It seems like he is made to be paired up with either ultimate Astaroth depending on what you want to focus on. The 2x HP, 1.35x Atk, and 2x Rcv Astaroth could make for a decent tank devil team as the added HP and Rcv will allow you to stay above the 50% HP threshold. On the other hand. If you don't anticipate being hit much like many blitz teams. The 3.5x Atk and 1.35x Rcv Astaroth will do perfectly. Especially if you add a heal-effect monster, I have evolved Anima, and a monster that can reduce damage for a number of turns. Then you will have an almost constant 12.25x Atk and extra Rcv in case you take an unplanned hit, such as preemptives.
By Unmoved 4 years ago ( 7.3.0 ) 
He's much better now with Souther and Shin avaliable to him from the FOTSNT collab.

Baal, Shin, Souther, Mephisto, Hera Swilho, Baal

Mephisto could also play lead for an ok GZL/DMeta type spike team.

Definitely much more viable now.

By Sennyu@pf 5 years ago ( 6.4.5 ) 
I have mixed feelings on this one. It kind of calls Dmetra to me with its 2 light row and 2 skill bonus, it MIGHT be good with the light and dark riders but would have to see it in action. The issue with running it with riders would be the fact we dont have skill ups for the riders in the US
By BESTEST 5 years ago ( 6.5.5 ) 
Best Archdemon. I love the little Harpie devil by his side!
By ¡Crusty¿ 4 years ago ( 7.8.1 ) 
Ive seen alot of hate for this guy and It's clearly because Baal's not super-duper viable, but if we take a look at a team comp we can see just what he can do right now. Keep in mind these are stats for a team thats fully awoken containing all +297 monsters:

Now looking at how Amenouzume is being used, we can go right ahead and assume we're using a Light row enhance team.

In this team I believe that along with Baal we'd take
D/L Venus
Ars Nova (off colour but thats fine)
Gryps Rider
D/L Lilith or L/D Divinegon for that extra punch
Baal friend leader

With the Baal/Venus/Ars Nova//Lilith/Gryps Rider/Ball combo, we have a pretty good 32, 326 HP & 4030 RCV. But the part that drove me nuts was the absolutely beastly 206, 712 ATK . That's ~30-40k ATK more than your average Amenouzume team. Given this team has less rows (6) than a good row enhance team but that's ok. If you switch out Lilith for that L/D Divinegon I mentioned before you actually get more HP and more ATK (this time coming from L as a main Att.) and 2 more Light rows!

However you would be losing out on an auto heal and about 200 RCV from not having Lilith in the team but to each their own.

If there are any more viable subs please let me know. ;)

Kalani 5 years ago ( 6.4.5 ) 
Oh, come on. Baal never used to be a leader for anyone but those (like me) who got him on their first roll.

Now his status as a sub is pretty much cemented.
By mazerat 5 years ago ( 6.4.5 ) 
Sucks that all of the Archdemons have lost their Dark subtype so far--it was a neat gimmick. I've wanted an Astaroth as a side-project since I started playing but if she's going to be W/w or W/l then I don't really care anymore.

By horribad 5 years ago ( 6.5.2 ) 
not a horrible stat increase
no longer worried about dark bind

still imo best used as a sun wukong sub as double light rows are hard to find + he is a changer

his usefulness would be much greater if we could skill him up.

We now have fat ninjas and a collab with a monster that both do this.

Sub light is the old baal uevo. It should be changed to light/dark asap to avoid confusion

Didn't they change his subtype back to dark or not? Clearly, I don't remember.

he was L/L then changed to L/D later which is why he shows up as both, i really wish they would fix it

By Pyonk 4 years ago ( 7.3.0 ) 
I was pretty happy when I rolled a Baal, still looking for a lead other than my Lunar Byakko. I have a Shin, and a Dark Rider Finn (Dark, but seemed very synergistic to Baal), Also have Vamp, DA Lucifer, Christmas Hera and Ifrit as situational Devil throw ins, and possible Odin as an autohealer to keep the leader buff up.

Gravy, right?

However, as much as I thought a 0/3.5/1.25 lead would be great, I havent found one player in the world running Baal as a lead. It's clear he's not in the meta as a powerful lead, but seems to be good to me. What gives?
By milkyway 4 years ago ( 7.3.0 ) 
It seems Gunhho is headed in the direction of slowly creating light demons so we can eventually make a decent light demon team. They have already started making light/dark teams a thing with Apocalypse's skill of changing orbs to light dark and heal. He and HBaal would be good as subs together on and light/dark team. Both have light row enhancers. Although, Apocalypse's awakenings are a little confusing with both a row enhance and a 2 prong. It's like, which on do we choose?
By Semper 4 years ago ( 7.3.0 ) 
Awoken Venus is looking decent for him. Too bad I haven't rolled Baal yet.

Oh the other puns available for this... low-hanging fruit.
