I'm trying to find a berserker to focus on leveling up (and grailing) to use for teams with two Merlins (or Merlin/Waver, Merlin/Mae, etc). I currently have Herc 80 NP2 10/6/5 and I'm wondering if any of these options could be better:
- Hyde. Cute boi, takes a bit of setup to get to 500% overcharge but afterward, turns into high-HP berserker with very high permanent buster buffs, and turns into buster crit monster for 3 out of 5 turns. But no NP and no survivability other than almost guaranteed stun every 6 turns, relatively low base attack even grailed to 100, and needs a star absorb CE to work well (limiting CE options).
- Asterios. Fluffy boi, decent survivability options, NP allows for support to do more damage while also increasing team survivability. But no offensive NP and still relatively low base attack after grail to 100 (but still better than Hyde).
- Lu Bu. Strong boi, better NP damage than Herc (comparing both at 100 / NP5). But two of three skills include demerits for self or team, and base attack is ok after grail.
I feel like these are my best options and the only other buster berserk I have that could be good is NP1 Beowulf but I feel like NP2 Herc mostly outclasses him. F2P so I don't really have the capability of just using a different 4 or 5 star, just 1-3 stars. And after grailing Astolfo and d'Eon, I don't have anyone else I really wanna grail until Lanling comes to NA, so saving the grails isn't too important for me.
