While I'm not too savvy with the ins and outs of PAD (I'm a bit lazy with the math and sub strategies), this guy is one of the most powerful leads I've had the pleasure to roll... I'm blown away. I used him with my two urds, summurd, and an urd friend, and blew through a legendary descend tonight. It was the first descend I've ever cleared and It really got my heart and adrenaline pumping (I hope y'all know that feeling; It's a real natural high.) Like all the urds, Gadius is pretty cool -- and I haven't even gotten to awaken him yet.

Ive just made a gadius team and have been testing him out on the easier decendeds and true endless corridors and here are some pros and cons to using him and one issue that i think needs to be address.

Pros
-The combination of stacking rows, fire type cards, and a decently easy x36 means huge damage outputs i was able to produce huge damage
-the fact that you can do one heart combo makes it easier to clear trash floors without wasting too many heart orbs
-a good amount of very strong subs, urd, yamato, uriel, drall, strawberry dragon, ect

cons
-HUGE CON AND AN ISSUE I THINK NEEDS TO BE FIXED. after testing him a good amount ive noticed his active can be quite inconsistent. Ive found that close to 1/5 times that ive used his active ive gotten less then 6 heart orbs which means you cant proc a x36 consistently with his active which can kill you if you need to kill the current floor right away. which ment that during decendeds ive had to make sure yamato and uriel are up before i use gadius active.
-surprisingly low HP for a team that going to have mostly dragon subs

This is all ive found out so far so i will update this in the future
1
greml1n 3 years ago ( 8.1.1 ) 
Yeah, the HP is low... That is my biggest complaint. You basically have to not get touched with him as a leader. You also wind up with not so high ATK subs because of all the heart makers that you need to bring. URD being probably the highest ATK (~1700) that sill makes hearts (that I have at least)...

I also noticed that a lot of the best heartmaker subs don't have skill boost awakenings, so while they may be in the 8-10 turn range, they are't usually up as fast as well skilled subs on say a rsonia team.

The tradeoffs make it powerful but not completely unbalanced like it seems it would be at first glance. at least IMHO. I wish he had a 1.35x HP part to his leader skill but that would probably be asking too much. ;)

That said, I'm not complaining. He is a super fun leader to use, and is a suprisingly good sub for RGY to boot and has farmable skillups... Nothing wrong with any of that. :)

I agree, his active skill does not synergize very well with his LS or awakenings. In order to make red rows, you need more fire orbs in his active skill and in order to make his leader skill to work on bosses you need at least six. It would make more sense for his active skill to be red and heal for rows and heal combos or, change his active to red, heal and light and make his awakenings TPAs instead of rows.

So, I get this guy is already incredible as is, but it would be nice to get an ult evo for him ASAP. I feel like his awoken skills are somewhat lacking. Add some Two-Prong when ult evo'd maybe? It'd definitely be a nice boost.
0
Illucio 3 years ago ( 8.1.1 ) 
Well his hearts both require 2 sets of 3, there's no point to add 2 prongs because then you would have to make 2 sets of hearts and then multiple fire's of 4.

It's easier, and more orb efficient to make 2 sets of hearts, then have fire row enhance because then you can try and eliminate all your fires in one row. Granted I can see where it might be slightly easier to have maybe 2 rows of 4 fires so you could use a 2 prong instead.

Then again you may only have 3 hearts and then have a ton of room for rows.

Granted most of his best dubs have fire rows (Uriel and Yamato)

So to be safe, rows for him are probably the way to go for a Ultimate evolution. And maybe some bind resists so he can resist bind AND get rid of them for the rest of his team considering he needs his subs to orb change.

dragoonj 3 years ago ( 7.8.1 ) 
Well in this case, Gadius is rightfully comparable to Juggler, as their leader skills both increase ATK based on matching hearts - but I understand the sentiment.

And unlike Juggler, this likely WILL reach this side of the Pacific. Yamasachi, Durga, Secrets Kali, and Kirin are grimacing as we speak. (Unless secondary ultimates are in store for them, anyway.)

epharian 3 years ago ( 7.8.1 ) 
even with L. Kali's recent buff to be a x36 lead, this is so much easier. Yes, he'll be useless in the no RCV dungeons, but outside of that, it's SO much easier to hit 2 heart combos than fire, water, light, dark and 6+ combos.

1
By UaahMaster 3 years ago ( 7.8.1 ) 
So his leader skill currently reads: "All attribute cards ATK x2 when reaching 1 set of Heart combo. ATK x4 for each additional combo, up to ATK x6 when reaching 2 combos."

Is there a typo or mistranslation somewhere? Maybe I'm just dumb but it's not making sense to me. Cause the "additional combo" up from 1 is 2, but do you get x4 or x6?
1
Dyinanic 3 years ago ( 7.8.1 ) 
Not a typo. It's 2x ATK on 1 heart combo, and 6x ATK on 2 heart combos. "ATK x4 for each additional combo" just means it'll add 4x more atk multiplier...it's an unnecessary part just added to be consistent with other PADX descriptions.

Having two off color subs might mess with your damage output though. I think it might be better to focus on other utility or light tpa subs rather than another pseudo kali active. If you don't have anything better, then by all means. We all work with what we have.

How is this thing even close to fair? Look at Vishnu: match 1 set of heart orbs and get x6.25. Match 2 sets of heart orbs and get x12.25. That is literally the same difficulty (about none) to get x36...Gungho plz?
5
draka 3 years ago ( 7.8.1 ) 
Yes but if you match 2 combos with Vishnu those deal damage. If you match 2 heart combos and nothing else you deal zero damage. So basically you have to make two heart combos while also making a number of color combos to deal damage. If you have a mono team it is very hard to consistently pull off two sets of heart orbs plus the color you need.
0
By xima yi 3 years ago ( 7.5.1 ) 
If you look at the wording of the leader skill, it states that the monster gets 6x when reaching 2 combos. However, it doesn't specify that the second combo needs to be heart. Does it?

Nope but she makes dark. And with uriel it will make a board of fire and heart. Heart orbs enhanced. It works pretty nicely. Actually. After trying a few teams I decided to run uriel, rouzel, r/r freyr, Yomato. It's killer. Uriel, rouzel and freyr are core. Yomato can be anyone. Working on a dark/red dragon team to see what happens. Ronia , uriel, shogun, Stawberry dragon. Just need a few more tamadras to make strawberry viable. That's a 72x board. Before the row, heart enhances, Combo's, fire enhances are calculated. Should wipe out anything.

Liu bei takes hearts though. Is the only problem I see with him.unless throw in Urd. Still experimenting, thanks for suggestions. With this guy as lead it's just plain ridicules. Besides him making light, dark, fire for an active as well with a light sub type opens the sub pool right up.
0
Bob in reply to Prospero 3 years ago ( 7.8.1 ) 
Realistically if you just combo with him with 2 sets of hearts, it'll be enough, you don't really need rows with 36x. Its the same as Light Kali and no one really does rows with Kali. I wish he had 2 pronged awakenings instead of rows though. I think if you just bring a bunch of healer girls and hero gods like Yamato, Andromeda, etc, you'll be able to dish out lots of damage while having a decent chunk of HP. I mean because of the internal combo multiplier, you looking at a 6 combo with 2 sets of hearts realistically at nearly 90x. Since he doesn't have much HP or an HP multiplier, I see that will be the main problem with Gadius teams.
0
By Prospero 3 years ago ( 7.8.1 ) 
I see what your saying, hp is definitely something to keep an eye on. Rows as well is really nice but I guess not as important with the base dmg output being as high as it is. I'm going to give it a go with a 3 color and see how that works out. Probably a g/r/l idk lol still messing around while I wait for the next ruby dragon dungeon to appear so I can max him.

Leader skill is getting a buff to be 2.5x for 1 heal instead of 2x. I rolled 2 of these in the last godfest so I was already leveling him up for those times I get bored of my devil and DQXQ teams. Now he has my attention even more.

I rolled his unevolved form this afternoon and after reading the comments, I immediately evolved him. I built a team with the following, but have yet to test it out:

Gadius (EVO)
Uriel (EVO)
Yamato (EVO)
Leilan (UEVO)
Norn Urd

The challenge is that my Norn Urd is not evolved and, with the exception of Yamato, the rest are not fully awakened. I'm fairly new to this game in comparison to most, so any suggestions or feedback would be helpful.

By Grey Shirt 3 years ago ( 7.8.1 ) 
He has great ability to spike, but if you don't make the 36x with duel leads, you may get buried. I think instead, I will run opposite an Urd friend to get 7x or 21x. Should still be plenty of damage to get through.

Gadius
Urd
Uriel
Homura
Strawberry Dragon
Urd

Lots of options to make hearts if needed plus the ability to change Urd's blue to red.

I would say "no", but it may be worth waiting for an eventual ultimate evolution before you decide what to do with them (I wouldn't sell more than 1 dupe). I think at least one of his two shortcomings (no skill boost(s) nor skill bind resist) will be addressed when he has an uevo.

Theoretically he's a great card, but his type and color combination give him limited potential. Maybe his Ulti will address one or both of these issues. There are just so few cards that you can make a team around him with.

With a Gadius friend lead you hit 42.25x atk when making two combos of only three hearts.That's OP in anyone's book. So, on a standard 5x6 board you are only using, ideally, six of the 30 orbs available.That still gives plenty of orbs to make TPAs and rows with. So, with a few subs with one or two double prong and row skills, you only need to make a couple of matches to do serious harm. Just think about what happens on the occasional 7x6 board?

Currently maining Ronia/DQ/GZL so if you don't see Gadius, don't worry. He just hit N/A, so it'll be a bit before I have him evolved, leveled, and awakened. But he's going to be a beast. Going to trivialize most beginning to mid Descends and Challenges.

I don't understand why this is such a sought after card. Maybe I'm using it wrong.

Obviously 6x is great, and it's not even difficult to activate. The problem is that you're "wasting" two of your combos on heart matches, so, yeah, it's 6x, but 6 x what?

Say you have a light / fire team. So say you activate with a 5-combo, and get 2 heals, a light, a fire, and an off-color (maybe dark). So your light and fire attacks are at 64x (36 for dual gadius leaders and 2 for the 5-combo). It's not that much damage because it's just one attack of each.

Compare to a leader like Ilm. Yes, it's harder to activate, but when you do activate it's a massive attack because the orbs that you matched to activate the LS also attack. Now obviously Ilm is very rare and one of the better leaders in the game (I was lucky enough to pull one) but I even think that Ariel is a better leader, for the same reason (plus Ariel hits really hard with 3 TPAs).

The point is, I don't want to have to match heal orbs when I'm trying to nuke a boss. Those are matches that could be attacking instead. Add that to the fact that his active is not that great (if it was an active more similar to Urd's -- full board change to both attributes + heal -- it would be different. In a full board like that when you are trying to make 6-8 combos, the heal orbs are useful, because they help break up the lights and fires so you can make more combos)

I have 2x Gadius, 2x Ariel, and an Ilm, and I can't find a use for even one of the Gadiuses. I am going with Ilm as a lead, and 2x Ariel, Tsubaki, and a utility (usually a menace card) as subs. If I ever get within 30k mp of an overpowered card, I'll probably sell the Gadiuses.

A! I just not getting it? Am I missing the point of this card?

I think Gadius excels in dungeons where you need a lot of bind resistance or recovery. Because he's a healer and his leader skill relies on heal orbs, you'll be packing a lot of heart orb changers. I personally experience the best results when running him with Rozuel as a sub.

That being said, because of Gadius' active, he's also more appropriate to be used for a more rainbow-oriented team. And as I've always noticed, mono-color teams will always outdamage rainbow teams.

OK, I see your point. He allows you to heal and hit hard in the same turn.

I currently use Urd's active for something similar. But if you need that on many turns, I could see how Gadius would help. I'll keep that in mind if I'm ever trying to build a team for a particular dungeon and that's my problem...

I know someone has already said it, but this guy IS a genderswap of echidna.

-His unevolved evo has blue eyes. (OMG echidna has blue eyes too!)
-Healer Typing ( O: )
-Same "Belt"
-Same haircut
-Same horns(?)
-Same swords.

Probably a different gender for the " echidna race", seeing as how crimson lotus has a normal snake tail, and this guy has dragons. O:

Gadius is basically a recolor of Typhon the strongest monster of Greek myth. He also happens to be the husband of Echidna, and they had many monster children. Basically a lot of the famous Greek monsters were Typhon's kids. Gungho was too lazy to draw 100 dragon heads, so they went with a human head because Greek Myth is hard to canonize.

6x just seems a bit absurd for just two heart combos...I would have been okay with 5x for two heart combos, or 6x for 3, but 6x for 2 is just absurd...completely outclassing Indian 2 gods.

I actually prefer this guy to Jugg, because you don't get anything for 1 set of hearts for Juggler, this guy has a fallback.

Don't forget that your overall output is lessened by having to match so many hearts that could have been orbs of attributes on your team.
