* Edited with the upcoming row-enhance awakening in mind. (just announced in Japan!)

The BBG Valkyrie (I'll just call her Dark Valkyrie) is a powerful leader in the beginning that can steamroll all dungeons up to Satan.

Leading with Dark Valkyrie with a simple healer team (Echidna, Siren, Kurone, Lilith, etc) becomes too risky in the last few Normal dungeons, let alone the beginner descends like Hera & Hero. At this point, Dark Valkyrie becomes a nice sub for dark teams lead by popular leaders like Vampire Lord, D'Spinas, Lucifer, and Persephone.

As users complete the Normal dungeon and attempt the harder descends, three rivals appear that replicate the roles of the Dark Valkyrie:

1) Dark Liege, Vampire Duke (#894) has the same skill, is easier to obtain, and has similar stats as the dark Valkyrie. He does not have row enhance and his leader skill doesn't quite cut it in end-game, but his "devil" type makes him a great sub for popular devil leaders such as Satan, Hera-Ur, Red Sonia, and Ultimate Hera. His water sub-element fits nicely with Hattori Hanzo, DJ, Satan, and Ultimate Lucifer as well.

2) Warrior Rose, Graceful Valkyrie (#694) has the same leader skill as the Dark Valkyrie and has similar stats, but it is her light element and light attack stance that makes her the most optimal valkyrie leader & sub for a healer team. The King Shynee (#687) is crucial in end-game healer team builds, but it is gold. The only healer type toy dragon is gold: Sacred Dragon Beast, Angelion (#760). Same with the resist dragon Tornado Holy Dragon (#1093). Useful healer gods are also gold: Metatron, Venus, Sandalphon, and Da Qiao Xiao Qiao. Kurone and Lilith are the only decent dark healers, and they don't quite pack a punch. It's possible to have a multi-color healer team, but having two Valkyries means they fight over heal drops for their attack stance, and their spike attacks are less strong so it doesn't work well with difficult bosses. Finding Light Valkyrie friends is much easier, too.

3) Queen of Condemnation, Persephone (#893) has superior stats and skill (double attack stance) compared to Dark Valkyrie and even has a Devil type. If you simply need a dark / fire unit on a dark team, Persephone may be overall more useful. However, Persephone has a longer cool-down and she has a skill boost instead of Dark Valkyrie's row enhance so which one to pick (or having both) will depend on the dungeon.

So how can we maximize Dark Valkyrie's potential in difficult, end-game dungeons?

1) Pandora team sub. Orb conversions into dark becomes crucial in a Pandora team so Hattori Hanzo, Finn, and Red Sonia are common subs with good awakenings. They all have decent HP but lack RCV so a Dark Valkyrie will be a great fit as an orb changer as well as a RCV booster. The new row-enhance awakening fits very well with a Pandora team, making the Dark Valkyrie a better sub than Duke on the mythical Friday dungeon. Leading with Dark Twin Star Tiamat (#111) instead of Pandora also works. Dark Valkyrie will be especially useful over Duke in dungeons with blue-bind.

2) Okuninushi team sub. Okuni has very low heal so Dark Valkyrie works better than Duke for this one, too. It's a hard choice between Persepone, if you have her.

3) Haku Team sub. When using Haku with low RCV subs like Hades & Hera-Is, Dark Valkyrie can boost the RCV more compared to Duke. If you're going for a dark spike using the devil Haku ultimate, you can use a Loki instead of Echidna and have Dark Valkyrie satisfy the flame requirement and add another row-enhance. If you have enough ATK, Persephone's double attack-stance and skill boost may be more useful.

As a Dark Valkyrie user myself, I hope to see the day where here awakenings change or another type is added. Perhaps the addition of the new Flame Valkyrie will shakes things up! [Edit: Yay for the new awakening!]

Oops, sorry, I meant that I hope the addition of the red Valkyrie might cause Gung-Ho to rethink all the Vaklyries and decide to modify Dark Valkyrie's type or awakenings. ...although that didn't happen so it was just wishful thinking.

There's no need to despair; the Dark Valkyrie is still an awesome pull for a non-god. The Ancient Light Dragon dungeon going on right now is one of the dungeons where a healer party won't work without the Dark Valkyrie. (Mostly light enemies, but no light orbs)

A sample build for the Legend level would be:
Leader / Friend: Sanctuary Guardian, Archangel (#1104)
Leader / Friend: Feline Deity of Harmony, Bastet (#888)
Sub: Black Blaze, Graceful Valkyrie (#983)
Sub: Pitch Black Night Princess, Lilith (#1106)
Sub: Blue Moon Sea Deity, Isis (#996)
Sub: Freyja, the Fertility Goddess (#654)

And of course, Dark Valkyrie works much better than Light Valkyrie against many normal, technical, and guerrilla metal dungeons that have light enemies. Being able to switch Valkyrie colors cuts down grinding time by a lot. I didn't mention this above since I was focusing on end-game descends, where it's harder to optimize her.

Still think she should get a devil sub-type. Look at king Baddie, all smug.

There would be no point to it. Vamp Duke is already a devil and farmable.

But a devil subtype would make her less of a bad REM pull.

I'm delighted that she's getting TPA!

Now if only Gungho would give all valks a God or Attacker sub type...
Don't see her as a Devil from the myths at all.

Unfortunately I feel like she's outclassed by the other valks because of serious lack of dark healers. And making a rainbow healer team just doesn't make sense with weak attack. And the fact that vamp has better stats and the devil subtype really don't help her odds either. All the others get plenty of synergy besides red (she doesn't have much of a sub pool either). She needs some love. Who does she have besides lilith

Pandora teams never use gravity. You do enough damage with purely orb changers and attribute/orb enhance.

i don't really think shes meant to leader a mono dark healer team at this moment in time but paired with Kurone she really nice on a Pandora team leaving openings for 2 versatility subs or gravities

Love this girl, built my entire deck with her as lead, a few sticker girls and so far so good up to rank 65. Really love her art and with hatsune and messenger of god archangel being my other free REM pulls I am just loving her more.

still rocking this girl as my main, pulled hermes so will be building around him now but this girl is my first max skill/awake/level/ult. the reason i rerolled in PAD for the first time and I am so glad i stuck with her at the time i did during the sticker girl event. Love the art, the only downside to her is her lame awakes. otherwise she will get you very far in game once you get all the other staple healers ult'd out. Cheers to my favorite girl in PAD.

Still using her a lot but with Karin's new Ult Evo I started using her more. For now until I have a full physical team she is a great sub for my Karin/PhysUlt lead as Valk was my first level 99 and max skill character. Obviously one of the easiest skill ups in game. For my dailies and such she is in my every team and still makes me smile when I see her amazing artwork. I am glad they are buffing her awakenings! (though I wish she had row enhance)

Still 0 regret on starting the game with her. <3 My Black Blaze.

If you really want to utilize her get Kurone. That sticker girl is perfect for her colors. Lucky for me that was the very first REM event when I started PAD and I got Black Blaze and 4 Sticker girls. /cheers
