By Bryggyth 4 years ago ( 8.1.1 ) 
Not only does he have 5 rows, but his active skill can literally be a life saver. It can alternatively double as a way to change the whole board to light when paired with Valk.

If you use that and go for the OHKO on a boss, but leave the boss with a small amount of HP, you also won't have to worry about being one-shot because of the boss' super final attack or something!
€ rial 4 years ago ( 8.1.1 ) 
The 2 turn invincibility is the real hype, full board of enhanced light seems decent as a secondary nuke if paired with Valkyrie or Apollo, but prob won't be as effective as matching multiple rows and combos.
-Striku- 4 years ago ( 8.1.1 ) 
Use him when facing Kali at Ultimate Arena. You have 2 free turns of dealing heavy damage without having to worry about Kali's super attacks.

By aFireBlaze 4 years ago ( 8.1.1 ) 
Alright seriously? This guy needs a far better rating than 8.0. Incredible active skill, awakenings are WAY top notch and light teams are always incredible. His leader skill isn't all the best though and I can understand for THAT specific part but look at those awakenings, active skill and team synergy: it deserves a WAY higher rating for skill bind resist and everything, and 5 row enhances are NOTHING to sneeze on for one monster. Invincibility while healing? That's freaking over the top, and light row teams such as Wukong and healer teams are going to be drooling for this man whether it comes to healing or for the bursts.

Don't sleep on him people.

Full Heart Orbs AND 100% damage reduction for 2 turns?

He's so useful now. He's now the best healer/defense card in the game. Let alone has 5 light rows.

This opens up so many possibilities, and he can literally fit in any pure Light Team now. Put him on a Awoken Amaterasu team and you can literally always maintain that 100% HP even with first strike. Heart break and burst if you need to, and so on.

Pure Light and Healers have a place in late game now.
Daniel9dsi 4 years ago ( 8.1.1 ) 
I wouldn't say you'd be able to retain 100% all the time. His skill is still on a relatively high cooldown and assuming the enemy does damage every turn, all it takes is one hit for you to never be able to activate the 16x unless you use healing actives or kill the monster.

You said that you regretted your decision. So, why are you acting as if you don't regret it after a comment? If you had more than one Raphael, why not say that you do? If he had consoled you instead, you could have responded the same way: did I I say I only had one? That type of response doesn't even sound like you. But, hey, 5000 mp is a good chunk of points!

It's been announced for a while now that Raphael was going to get some ult evo love. They dragged their heals about the change, but it was always going to happen.
Daniel9dsi in reply to Silver 4 years ago ( 8.1.1 ) 
Well yes I assumed you had only one based on the fact that you said you regreted selling him, and i don't know why you would ever want multiple Raphaels on one team...
Silver in reply to Daniel9dsi 4 years ago ( 8.1.1 ) 
personally, i wanted to try out double wukong with 2 raphs, 1 tamapurin, and one apollo
or maybe awoken thor for tamapurin
I only wanted to see what kind of damage output
yes 2 of him isn't necessary on a normal team but it was a way for me to enjoy this guy

Sandalphon/Awoken Venus/LValk/DQ/this comeback kid/LMeta or Awoken Ama

Yeah it looks ghetto with Sandalphon as lead but with 11 rows and that 2x ATK active I think it can work. Thoughts?

Look like a pretty decent team if you can manage to skill up Sandalphon. Venus might be better as a lead in some cases.

Why is the LS rated so low? This is a team that could potentially reach 80k+ health and massive recovery. The attack multiplier is now 1.5, so pair with another raph and get 2.25x attack damage. Combined with the healing and health, Raphael serves and an extremely good leader...

I find that even being max skilled, he's not viable for most of the rush dungeons when you need a shield on the 3/4 floor. It's a shame though, because it's really a nice active.
Orange 3 years ago ( 8.4.1 ) 
Yeah pretty much makes Ganesha look like a pile of crap. One turn quicker max and one turn slower min cooldown for a skill that is unequivocally better than Ganesha's (oh and a theoretically existent skill up material) for a monster with a much better stat distribution.

Honestly, I'd drop Ganesha (and his prongs) from my team in a heartbeat for this cat.

By Chinny 3 years ago ( 8.6.2 ) 
so, just for fun:


An incredibly impractical team that can has the interesting mechanic of being able to null damage for 8 straight turns with a 4 turn reset. (though 4 of the 8 turns of damage void will be near-useless)
Paul 3 years ago ( 8.6.2 ) 
Or you run all Raphs/farmable skill ups. Same concept. Lose the 25x ATK but you get 12 untouchable turns with the same 4 turn wait.

Also I think this proves why the CD will never decrease. If it made it all the way down to 12, Raph would break the game. You would never take damage.
epharian in reply to Paul 3 years ago ( 8.6.2 ) 
He's not unbindable, so....binds would screw you twelve different ways.
XXv9 in reply to epharian 3 years ago ( 8.6.2 ) 
Not necessarily most binds in the game are random sub(s), both leaders, or a specific color. For specific colors obviously you should be able to get around that easily... by not attempting to run it with this team! For the leader/random sub binds, a single active from one of the unbound Raphael will clear the bind of all your guys. The only thing that really counters you would be skill delay although most skill delayers wont do a powerful gravity attack or really powerful nukes right away.

While his typing doesn't match up his active and row skills would work extremely well with King's Gaze Baal. But in a more general sense his active would work well with a team that requires HP to be above a certain percentile because of his high HP and his active would help when you are facing a boss and you are getting trolled because your HP is just low enough that you don't meet the HP requirement.
Sheep 3 years ago ( 8.7.0 ) 
Skill inheritance could be your friend in this case (put Raphael on Valk or Venus or something so you can have better tanking potential?), but the CD gets even longer in that case and Baal isn't exactly known for his stalling abilities. :/

Too bad Baal doesn't endorse Healers or Physicals, heh. It's also now ironic if do it the other way around. If you try to sub Baal on a Raphael team, Baal's active requires you to take a hit, and... Raph's active nullifies the ability to take a hit. Granted, you don't have to use them at the same time, but your plan can be foiled if you're at 10% HP, there's only 2 heal orbs on the board, and the boss has resolve, or... something. Granted, I don't even see people use Baal on Raphael nowadays, since you could just go for the rowbomb route for more reliable massive damage.

Can this card be a good sub for Myr team? Im not sure where else I could use him
Shoukon 3 years ago ( 9.2.1 ) 
Of course.

My Myr Team is:

Awoken Da Qiao Xiao Qiao
Sun WuKong
Myr Friend

My Myr has inherited Saria's Active Skill, while
Friend's Myr is either the same, or with Apocalypse or Momiji's skill (#3283).
My Wukong will soon inherit himself when I get enough Tamadras.

This has a high success chance in Bipolar Goddesses 1.

When facing against Awoken Sopdet, I just match rows without any cross-shaped hearts.
2 rows when Sopdet is light, 1 row when she is dark.
I can often beat her in 4 rounds, but
if I can't do that, I use Raphael's 100% damage reduction to buy me 4 more rounds.

Then when I reach Kali.
First round - activate Raphael's Active Skill, erase all hearts, let Kali hit me but I remain unscratched, and Kali's 50% damage reduction shield dissipates.
Then, I will do the Apocalypse + DQXQ combo to make the board purely lighthearted, er, I mean, with Light and Heart orbs only, and usually Light orbs are more than Heart orbs.
It could one-shot Light-Kali with a bit of luck, and it could almost surely one-shot Dark-Kali.

If I am unlucky enough to fail to one-shot her, and left her HP <10%, Raphael's 100% damage reduction is still effective and save me from the Kali's strongest attack (15K, not even the 75% damage reduction is enough for me to endure it).

RedBaron 4 years ago ( 8.1.1 ) 
Why wouldn't you use Awoken Thor as a lead? The team would still have a respectable HP pool and that would allow you to use Attacker Apollo, who is far superior in my opinion. Also, instead of Arthur, maybe try Athena.. She doesn't have any light rows but that double TPA packs quite a wallop. Or if you have Awoken Venus, she'd be a great sub for Thor.
Cenedar in reply to Daniel9dsi 3 years ago ( 8.4.1 ) 
It amazes me still how flexible Arthur is. He was one of the first monsters I got the ult for and he still rocks the kazbah.

2 SW Monkeys as leaders, Valkyrie, Awoken Thor, Awoken Venus and Awoken Raphael. If the skills are used the proper way, the weakest card will do about 4.5m damage, the strongest card will do about 5.5m damage. From a single full board of enhanced light orbs. Assuming all cards are +297.

I dunno why Nate is being downvoted, he has a point. Assuming you are doing some of the harder dungeons, it's very unlikely for you to be able to have all four actives up in order to burst as well as being able to clear the rest of the dungeon
