Whats so bad about Raphael?! I get it that he may be ugly but his skills will be good for those heart breakers and he can make a real nice light team
DaeOnP±D in reply to Anon 4 years ago ( 6.5.5 ) 
I agree. I rolled this on my other PaD account, and it's serving me well. hate how the skillup has to be angelits. Like ugh. but it's a great sub for my red-valk team :D
Anon 4 years ago ( 6.5.2 ) 
Most of us around here are just too used to having better gods to give Raphael any respect. It's not even easy to respect him seeing how he's painful to use, as well as the fact that almost every REM god is better than him. Doesn't help that he doesn't even have an uvo yet.

Edit: Now with his uvo released, Raphael is a decent monster. His healer subtype changed his life for good. At least he can be fine as a healer team sub now. In my opinion though, he is still not a particularly good leader, at least not on par with Lucifer.

Guys don't hate. He's actually decent depending on how you use him.
Blu 4 years ago ( 6.4.3 ) 
Yea I thought of a cool way to use him that I really want to try out. I was thinking having a light att. attack multiplier lead (like Pterados for 2x or Sun Wukong for 4x) with valk sub to change all of the heal orbs from Raphael to light orbs. Then you can top it off using a Unicorn to add a + to all of the light orbs (2.8x for full board) and a Zeus to add 1.5x light dmg active. It sounds like some heavy guaranteed burst to me. A full board is a 7.75x multiplier I believe so the math with the maximal 4x double lead combo I think works out to be 7.75x4x4x2.8x1.5=520.8x in one shot.

I would like to mention that what people choose to max-skill and +297 is nobody's business but their own and it would not affect you in any manner. Just saying.

My Raphael has two bind blocks instead of healings. Please correct.
By Ruyned 4 years ago ( 6.3.1 ) 
I want to point out I just pulled this out of the REM and love it. Haven't even evoed him yet. I put him in a team with my ultimate blue valk, sea devil kraken and machine golem mark III. I change orbs to hearts then blue than make them plus and the valk and kracken do over 30,000 damage a piece plus have a ton of hp. But I guess it depends on your style of play and support monsters
By KoreanGod 4 years ago ( 6.4.2 ) 
People dont understand that raphael is crazy this is how you use him first u get valk rose and sub valk rose with a king shynee u use raphael make all orbs into heal orbs then u use valk convert all heal to light then use king shynee. Then bam its gonna do insane damage if i got him in rem i wouldnt even be mad
By Sheep 4 years ago ( 6.3.1 ) 
Warning: Incoming wall of text. I'm also biased because Raphael was my only god for my first three or four months into the game, and as a result I'm attached to him for completely irrational reasons.

The thing that frustrate me the most about Raphael isn't how much of an eyesore he is.
It's how he manages to be so close yet so far from useful at the same time.

On one hand, a full board of enhanced orbs in the color of your choice is nothing to laugh at. On the other hand...
Well, let's look at some examples first.

List of lineups I've seen people use Raph as a sub for:
-Light god team, with Athena and Izanagi as leaders and Verche/Apollo/Raphael/Someone else(LMeta, Kirin, Echidna, etc) as subs
-Zeus team, with Valk/Thor/Raphael/any light orb enhancer

1) In theory, you're free to color the heal orbs any color you want.
In practice, however, people only use Raphael on light-based teams because of his own element. He'd be way more suited for this purpose if his skill generated light orbs instead of heal orbs.

2) Unlike Goemon or Zeus-Dios, you aren't going to get a lot of damage using Raphael as a leader because he doesn't have any attack multipliers, and if you're going to use him as a sub, you're giving up a lot of sub spots just to get Raphael + Attack Stance + Orb Enhance + Norse Element Enhancement or Izanagi's God Enhancement, unless your leaders come with one of the required skills (see: Athena/Izanagi). This means that you're giving up the opportunity to get more utility subs, and while you may be able to OHKO the boss, survivability goes down.

A Raphael tank team isn't bad in theory either, but light experience is hard to come by, and by the time you get a Zeus or two to grind down dungeons, you probably want to run a Zeus team to beat the said dungeons instead. Not worth the effort, unless you're up for a challenge or you have a Lucifer and you're using him as a sub on a Raphael team so that dark binds won't be fatal (see: Angry Bird Collab).

Things might change if he gets an Ultimate Evolution. I'm personally holding out for a Healer subtype, which makes the most sense, but considering Apollo and G/L Parvati, I really shouldn't be surprised if Gungho gave him a Physical subtype once they start doing the Archangels' ultimates.

Sheep in reply to Stephen 4 years ago ( 6.4.3 ) 
That's what I hope as well, but Gungho can be either spot-on or WAAAAY off when it comes to mythology. Since Amon (and by extension the rest of the Archdemons, presumably) is getting an ultimate evolution soon, the Archangels' ultimates shouldn't be that far off. We shall see.

Also, Raphael's 2nd and 3rd awakenings are bind heals, not auto-heals.
...Which is, unfortunately, pretty useless unless you're absolutely sure that Raphael will never get binded in whatever dungeon you're going in.

Granted, it still has to do with healing, but whomever was in charge of the awakening skill changes just had to give auto-heals to every Archangel except for the Archangel of HEALING. Who also happen to have the lowest RCV in the series. No this doesn't make sense to me either.

seeing as he has 2 auto recovers, his active skill is literally all about healing, his incredible recovery stats, and his mythology i highly doubt he's gonna get any subtype other than healer
Aerokii 4 years ago ( 6.5.2 ) 
The first time I ever heard of giving Raphael a healer subtype was this post right here- so I figured it was the perfect place to post a confirmation that yes, a Healer subtype has been confirmed for Raphael's Ultimate Evolution! Granted, he'll require a Gold Keeper to UVO, but that's just the nature of things I suppose. Point is, Gung Ho made a great decision this time for his UVO.
And there was much rejoicing.
By Belzepurin 4 years ago ( 6.3.0 ) 
I can dream of having him on a dual Tamapurin team with a Valkyrie and Unicorn as a sub, right?
I want a Raphael and I feel bad for it.
By Eredor 4 years ago ( 6.4.3 ) 
He is great, leader skill is great, active is amazing especially with high rcv, awoken skills are good, and he looks good to me. Pair him with a friend and thats a great team. Plus wait for his uvo, if its healer, game over.

By Walrus 4 years ago ( 6.4.3 ) 
Awoken skills number 2 and 3 are wrong.

Correct Awoken skills are (in order)

1. Enhanced Attack - ATK increases by 50
2. Recover Bind - matching 6 heal orbs horizontally recovers 1 turn of Bind State
3. Recover Bind - matching 6 heal orbs horizontally recovers 1 turn of Bind State
4. Enhanced Light Attack - Matching 6 light orbs horizontally increases Light Att. ATK

I don't understand either.

• His active skill, even though it takes 20+ turns, is still pretty cool.
• Leader skill is just like Lucifer, but light-based.
• Appearance is subjective, but I freaking love how mysterious this guy looks.
nerdotaku 4 years ago ( 6.4.5 ) 
nice name.
Greg! in reply to Anon 4 years ago ( 6.5.2 ) 
There's D/L Hades, and there's Lucifer (not ult.evo), as they're both light. They can be used as subs. There's also Zeus, who has the strongest Gravity in the game.

Sure, it's not a cheap Lucifer team, but if the RNG Gods leave you with nothing but this guy, there's still a way around him, and make him act like a pseudo-Lucifer.

Plus, I'm pretty sure he'll be getting a kickass ult...most probably a healer type.
Greg! in reply to Anon 4 years ago ( 6.5.2 ) 
You're right about using Lucifer as a leader instead. Why didn't I think of that haha.

Now that he has his own Ult Evo (FINALLY), he now has much more uses than he had before. He could still work as a leader, but he definitely will be a viable sub for many other teams, thanks to his subtype, sub-element, and that sweet row enhance.
Anon 4 years ago ( 6.4.5 ) 
As one of my friends once said:

"Raphael: the Lucifer without the gravities, without the KoR, and without the Morningstar"

In other words, "cheap" team members for Raphael are hard to come by.
Anon in reply to Greg! 4 years ago ( 6.5.2 ) 
Funny how you had to mention Lucifer as a sub for Raphael. While that CAN work, you're almost 100% better off just using Lucifer as a leader if you have both him and Raphael. The main problems with Raphael is that even if you get the subs for him, almost all of them tend to be better off doing something else. If you are using Valk or Zeus for a Raphael team, why not just use them as leaders for their own teams? Both can be generally more solid leaders than Raphael, and so even if they can sub for him, most would just use them as leads instead.

I can agree with you on this. The healer subtype changed Raphael's life for the better. There are more uses for him as a sub now, although he is still a bit limited as a leader. Nevertheless, why use him to tank when you can spike the boss with his active?

This is like a major lower level of Lucifer. IMO it can't be THAT bad, its just the turns of MoH that you have to wait for and the Heart Converters one has to rely on, right???
By Onlyname 4 years ago ( 6.3.0 ) 
Just watch when he gets a healer sub type in his ultimate evolve. Full board of light orbs on a 9x Valk team. His awoken skills are kind of a lost cause though...

A potential ult evo with L/F.
By Guest 4 years ago ( 6.4.3 ) 
if he gets an ultimate evo with healer subtype (and given his active/awakenings, why the hell wouldn't he be a healer?) he would be the PERFECT sub for a valkyrie healer team.

Although it would help if Gungho boosted his skill a bit... at least increase the max. level a little, so that the minimum cooldown is like 12 turns or something.

He was the first REM unit I owned and it served well early game and mid game.

Pros and cons:

Active skill is good, but the CD is too long at 23 - 18 turns, and can only be skilled up with Angelits / other Raphaels.
Leader skill is good old standard tank.
His first 3 Awoken skills are terrible. Attack increase, bind recover X2 are useless. "Bind RESIST" X2 would have been perfect, and even recovery X2 would have been appropriate considering Raphael's background and active. Currently the only good awoken is Awoken #4, "Light ATK enhance".

Hopefully the coming Ult Evolution(s) will bring him to the front with better stats, better/more awoken skills, lower active CD and an extra subtype (s), along with a much needed artwork overhaul.

By olann 4 years ago ( 6.4.3 ) 
Raphael seems like a good fit for any Heartbreaker + Enhanced Orbs combo. Skilling him looks very painful, but at least Angelits are farmable.
By Kylin@PDx 4 years ago ( 6.4.3 ) 
I wouldn't use it as a leader lol. Got addicted to dmg kill or be killed spike teams haha.
I'm actually looking forward to get a raphael, changing everyting to heal orb then changing it to another color is one hell of a dmg combo.
I would use it for my team.

Izanagi, Green Odin, Umi&Yama, Perseus, Apollo, Friend= Athena

Current if i obtained Raphael:
Izanagi, Raphael, Apollo,Umi&yama,Perseus, Friend= Athena

Future if i obtained Raphael:
Izanagi, Raphael, Apollo, Athena, Perseus/WuKong/Umi&Yama (situational), Friend= Izanagi

Raphael>Apollo>Athena>Izanagi(izanagi can be used anywhere in sequence) would do "tons of damage"- Phreak

Perseus/WuKong/Umi&Yama for occasional orb change based of situations.

Perseus Wukong and Apollo have Skill Boost awakening which is also a plus!

Æro 4 years ago ( 6.5.5 ) 
I don't hate Ralph, but I'm not sure if I should be extremely po-ed or extremely happy I have pulled 3 of these from the REM...2 of them during one God Fest. I know I can use the 2 extra to awaken his skills, but still, that is going to require taking them both to level 50, and Light based monsters always take forever to level up.

On a side note, he is pretty awesome whenever you pair him up with any of the heart breakers on a mostly mono-color team. BOOM! Full board attack.

I look forward to ult evoing him for the healer, just to get a KOG.
By Owl313 4 years ago ( 6.4.5 ) 
I like how the archangels that I HAVE don't have ult evoes, yet ALL OF THE OTHER ONES do!

And also, everyone needs to shut up about how stupid Rapheal is, I don't hear you all screaming at Gabriel or Micheal, and just because Raph looks weird doesn't mean he's stupid!

At time of posting, website has his leader skill as "Change all orbs to Heart orbs. 100% damage reduction for 2 turns."

This is wrong.

The leader skill is simply "Change all orbs to Heart orbs."

The 2x turn dmg reduction doesn't kick in until the Ult. Evo.
