He's more suitable than ever for Shiva Dragon.

He just became an S tier card in any Shiva Dragon or Raoh team.

Thank god, he was my weakest hitter on shiva dragon team. Now just awaiting to see the inevitable ares evo....which I'll probably just keep the 3 rows version
By Yegunn 2 years ago ( 8.6.2 ) 
Becomes an amazing Raoh sub.

You excited? I'm excited.

By OmegaCloud 2 years ago ( 9.0.3 ) 
So I've been using this guy since he came out in NA and I will say, I couldn't simply be any happier. I just completed the Lv10 Challenge Dungeon today only using 3 stones and thats with out my team being fully maxed out. But all in all he's alot of fun to use, he makes you have to put a bit more skill/thought into playing him and he dwals some crazy kinda damage too. Well here is my team with him:
- Takeru (+297, Max Skill, only missing Wood Damage Reduction Tamadra for the elements)
- R/G Cao Cao (+297, Max Skill, Extended time Tamas)
- Awoken Ares (+82+90+82, Skill Lvl 2, Enhanced Atk Tamas)
- R/L Gadius Ult (+1+7+2, Skill Lvl 1, No Latent Tamas)
- Evo Squall (+41+43+41, Skill Lvl 2, No Latent Tamas)
Takeru (+297, Max Skill, don't matter what Latents)
By Cygnus428 2 years ago ( 8.6.2 ) 
Yamato can still pack a huge punch as a leader. Everyone talkin bout subs for shiva, but yamato as leader almost guarantees rows every time you trigger his leader skill. Plus, some of his best subs are my favorites, awoken minerva, awoken leilan, and michael.
Ryuke 2 years ago ( 8.7.0 ) 
That's great and all, but if you build your team around red gods you have your x5 just standing there, don't need to have 10 fire orbs to get it. Plus you get the recover boost. If you have the option of Shiva Dragon; Yamato is the bottom.
By DadRocks 2 years ago ( 8.6.2 ) 
Who needs Ares on your Shiva dragon team with this guy and Uriel with his new ult/ult evo?

My team: is shivadra/yamato/uriel/urd/rvalk

Still have to uevo Shivadra and Yamato (when he's available), but really looking forward to seeing what I can clear when the team is done.
BiggestFan 2 years ago ( 8.6.2 ) 
People who want to make three rows. No seriously a double orb change is very good, you don't need hearts as often as you need fire orbs.
(°~°)@PG 2 years ago ( 8.6.2 ) 
Ares gives the final boss killing board. He covers uriel and rvalk in one active

Doesn't need to be chained to any other active for maximum effect
DadRocks in reply to (°~°)@PG 2 years ago ( 8.7.0 ) 
You guys are right. I swapped out Rvalk for Ares. Haven't really missed her...
By Guest 2 years ago ( 8.6.2 ) 
So I just finished spending over an hour and around $5 worth of stones (200 stamina per stone) attempting to get only two skill ups for this guy during the drop% x 2 on Red Sprite (Master), and got absolutely nothing for my hard work. Should I be furious?
Prospero 2 years ago ( 8.6.2 ) 
No. You shouldn't. Instead be happy. You have now been inducted to the pad community. Your initiation was to spend time and money for absolutely no gain.

Welcome young master.
Ferrious 2 years ago ( 8.6.2 ) 
I agree, I ran this dungeon all day (200 stamina also) and not a single skill-up. Thank you sir may I have another?!?
Guest in reply to Prospero 2 years ago ( 8.6.2 ) 
This isn't a community I want to be a part of really... Thanks for your concern though! :)
Destro 2 years ago ( 8.6.2 ) 
Was there any skill up bonus when you feed him?

You shouldn't be furious either... but it may be too late. Not sure because of spelling.

Not sure whether to ult evolve Yamato or Uriel
(°~°)@PG 2 years ago ( 8.6.2 ) 
I'd say Yamato

Although both are great subs in their own right, Yamato I feel contributes more with bind remove and extremely good stats all around

If you run Gadius, get both. But I think Yamato > Uriel unless you favor the specific orb color changes or need the heart enhance
By CoffeeHo 2 years ago ( 8.7.0 ) 
What latent awakenings will you put on him?
Musti 2 years ago ( 8.7.0 ) 
In terms of stats, all his stats are equally good. So, any stat latent would be good on him. If you need time to move orbs, I'd go with time extends. Otherwise, it's up to you if you'd like any damage reductions. (Personally, I'm thinking of going with either all time extends, or all +attack)
By Musti 2 years ago ( 8.7.0 ) 
It's been a while, and this is not in NA yet...
By yt 2 years ago ( 8.7.0 ) 
So when he gets here, my team will possibly look like:
a.Shiva, chibi ronia, yamato, yamato, a.leilan, a.Shiva. From 6 to 10 rows. Well, maybe I'll just keep the dupe a.leilan instead of the second yamato since I think a.leilan will provide more dmg with the extra orb enhances. The dmg difference may or may not be great but I don't feel like checking, at least yet. Anyways, I was also considering giving Shiva nim's skill (so you don't have to check, nim multiplies attacker types by 2.5 for a turn and a 30x atk to an enemy). Alternate cards could also be red riding hood or dark izanami.

So I have a sick Team setup for his ultimate evolution arrives.
-Super Ulti Takeru
-R/G Cao Cao
-R/D Ares
-R/D Guan Yu
-Ulti Gadius(When he comes. Until then it'll be non ulti)
-Super Ulti Takeru

Any thoughts? I Also have R/L Leilan, Ulti Gigas, Sanada Yukimura, Ulti Goemon, Awoken Hinokagutsuchi, Dino Rider Wild Drake, and Evolved Squall.
By Jathra 2 years ago ( 8.7.0 ) 
My god.

He was good for Tsubaki before but now hes just HNGGGGGG.
I'm torn because I love my NY Mitsuki but he is replacing her on my team x.x.

I lose a haste and some RCV but everything else is just so, so much better and he pairs perfectly with Leilan to make a nearly full red board with enough light to isolate the 5 orbs Tsubaki needs to activate. Literally perfect.
By Samyaza 2 years ago ( 8.7.0 ) 
I use this guy as my main dungeon tackling lead. He crushes most descends and all of the Mythical level Evo dungeons effortlessly once max-awoken and max-skilled.

My current non-IAP, but still REM heavy team is:

Lead: This handsome fellow.
Awoken Horus
Ult-Misato from Eva Collab
PAD Academy Gigas

Friend: Can be Rodin, Awoken Freyr, another Yamato, or even Awoken Shiva (though not ideal) amongst others

All fully awoken, max-skilled, and max levelled, this team can handle binds no problem. They can eliminate poison and jammers through Gadius, and they have a respectable 7+ rows, 4+ Fire orb enchances, and a few TPA's depending on the friend leader. With the substantial skill boosts and haste actives, this team also pretty much always has a skill ready to activate. If you carefully choose your friend leader or swap out a sub you can easily attain full skill bind resistance as well.

With a smattering of plus eggs and latent awakenings--though everyone is far from hyper-maxed--this team has stats of (not including friend leader):

18859 HP
2077 RCU
8291 Fire ATK
999 Dark ATK (The source of their unholy strength I suppose)
1019 Light ATK

Even without this great of a team, Yamato is still a fantastic leader and anyone who has rolled this wonderful card should not hesitate to devote their resources to reaching this evolution stage as fast as possible, provided you have halfway decent subs.

By ZeroCrack 2 years ago ( 8.7.0 ) 
my yamato team is stronger and more stable than red gadius, 6 hearts occupying the board prevents me to even dish out a row most of the time for gadius, wheres yamato can easily use 9-10 row provided by team awokens.
By Smoky 2 years ago ( 8.7.0 ) 
This guy was the one I ran as my lead before this uevo and then I found out he was getting this new guy.

Never have I been happier to sell several things I rolled from the REM despite being a low rank f2p.
My only regret is having only a Krishna friend lead - I really need to get a Yamato friend lead for that easy instant x25 boost. (As a low ranking player, x25 is good for me.)
And, thanks to that x25, I'll be able to run Grimoires! I really need to be able to run it without magic stones because I have to farm a Theurgia - I have a Shiva who I really want to awaken.

Not gonna lie, I saw Ryuko Matoi there for a second
By set2stun 1 year ago ( 11.1.1 ) 
So, I've got this Takeru guy (I assume, I can never tell with this amazing to look at but sexually ambiguous artwork). I have the ultimate, ultimate evo, red/red not the awoken evo (I have difficulty making and isolating 5 orb/heart crosses) he makes you work really hard to get as any red orbs all connected every turn, which means he needs a team of low cool down orb changing skills. Especially so if it's a long dungeon, or you have to use two units skills in one turn because there aren't enough of the source orbs to change.

All that said I really like him. Lots of damage. I have had trouble leveling his skill though. I used to sell off those red sprites all the time, thinking, who has this Sword of Kilimanjaro ;) skill, must be happy that it's so easy to level his skill. Now I've been chasing these sprites in all the dungeons available to me that are listed as drop sites, but I have only gotten him to level 2. The 3 skill boost awakenings are a big help.

So he comes highly recommended as a lead or sub. Basically, it's red Pandora.

And as for needing to create and connect a minimum of 10 red orbs every turn, if your team is good enough you can get away with a couple fewer, but not on really hard content. I've found that getting as many as possible over 10 makes for nice damage.

I run (but often swap out units depending on dungeon obstacles):
This guy (L) only +102 w/3 latent orb time move
Revo Minerva +16, max skill
Red Valk +104, max skill
Chiyome +297, level 4 skill (6 turns) and some great awoken skills
Tsubaki +50, skill level2 (11 turns) but 2 skill awakenings, and CD charge by 1
(Often I change out Tsubaki because he doesn't make enough red orbs, if I do I use-
Wild Drake +112 max skill, rows and TPAs . Damage goes up but hp goes down.
Total HP: 18,462
Red Atk: 10,049
Light Atk: 1320
RCV: 3134

That's that. If you read this and have any tips/advice (complete overhauls) please reply with such.

I love this card, but don't use him as a lead.

I also switched to his awoken state which works better for all ATT dungeons and I like him to clear the jammers and poison. I do miss the enhanced heart orbs.

I use him as a sub on Tsubaki #2970 team and also on Kenshin #3553 team.
