    COMPLETELY EDITED ('SPICE-FREE' Edition):

    Oracle is my disliked typing of all units personally and you don't have to follow exactly like me.

    I have NEVER gotten a unit that I personally like to have in oracle typing, it will be normally Guardian, Breaker, etc. As much as I dislike oracles for HP reduction part, it will still be (HOPEFULLY) changed to the new typing system eventually. The hate for oracles haven't dissolve completely just yet as oracle still remains as the 'worst' typing even after the type change as reducing Def still reduces survivability as it takes more damage which is the main reason that people don't like. It's VERY true that this change is better as there are more HP despite the fact that it still continues to reduce survivability.

    I COMPLETELY understand that IT IS FINE to have what I considered to be the 'worst' typing units all along and what matters is the abilities in the end. Oracle is still kind of undesirable for ME till now which will differ from your opinions as I'm still used/sticking to this 'oracle is awful' kind of mentality from how the BF community have reacted previously to them before the change. I also tend to not raise oracle units, simply because of the survivability part, though this will change/kind of remain sooner or later.

    Let's admit FOLKS:
    You can ONLY have one option out of these two options:
    1)A favourite typing of your choice in favourite unit
    2)A disliked typing of your choice in your favourite unit
    Which would you choose? Do note that I'm not being bias or anything and it's completely up to you.

    Regardless of typings, the unit will still (MAYBE) be added to your collection or be traded for more AS pts, etc and it's completely up to you.

    Recently, I summoned Oracle Deimos, a more or less desired unit. Will I be lvling/imping it? Not too sure, since I don't require him on my squad just yet. I do have other alternative units which suits my needs just fine, so I'm NOT desperate for it completely. His LS/ES is godly but his BB/SBB doesn't shine much, at least for me, ability-wise. However, I will keep him as part of my collection and admire it occasionally from time to time.

    This is a truly sensitive topic that still lives in and out of the BF community till now.

    Your loss if you really wanna miss out on how awesome/useful Deimos is because "Oracle".

    I guess his ES and sphere don't mean much either.

    Oh well. Preferences or not, some just don't make sense and can definitely be a bit "snobbish".

    I think his 60% ES bonus (Sphere and the ES combined) and if you use him as a lead (100% HP bonus) Fixes his typing
    adds up to 12946 Total HP which isnt bad
    His Oracle has more HP than Feeva Lord too btw

    Taking a mobile-game way too seriously if you'll let Deimos sit on the sideline because of his typing.

    I seriously feel like we've stepped into silly powercreep territory. New units right now are so absurdly overloaded that they are wiping out all previous units before them -- some of these are doing it in a sub role.

    I just pulled an Elimo. I'm tickled pink because when I started playing a month or so ago she was all the rage. She's good, but I have an Edea and an Ivris. Now units are so ridiculous that bad typing is inherently fixed and they add a bucketload of additional frills.

    Don't get me wrong, new things need to happen for old players to retain interest, but an upward ladder can only go so far before you suffocate because you're well past the stratosphere.

    This isn't anything new. This happened many times in the past and will continue to happen throughout the life of the game. This is the way that freemium type games work.

    Long time ago I pulled an Oracle Mariudeth. Got rid of him. Then, after a couple of months, I was doing some pulls for something and got Anima Mariudeth.
    Long time ago I pulled an Oracle Elsel of whateverthehellhernameis. Got rid of her. Then, I did 1 pull at rate up for her 7* release, got her as Breaker.
    Long time ago I pulled an Oracle Fiora. Sold her and told Gumi that I did it on accident. Got Lord Fiora.

    Just to spice things up.

    Same thing happened to me..
    Got zenia...Oracle.
    I'm to stubborn to use an Oracle type and she will just sit there until I get a better type. I have her sphere and everything o_O

    The only time an Oracle typing hurts a unit is if it already had a low base hp and also imping can help even out stats for the most part. I have friends that have the same unit of anima and Oracle typing such as Raaga and it makes absolutely no difference.
    Magress is a perfect example because of his high base hp oracle typing doesn't hurt him and is still usable.
    I will agree anima is still the best, but it's not needed necessarily.

    This is the most ridiculous thread I've seen in my year and a half coming to this forum.

    Obviously Oracle is not the preferred type, but I would much rather summon an Oracle unit that I wanted rather than an Anima unit that I don't want.

    If ANY unit can EASILY overcome the oracle typing it is Deimos and Tridon. Come on OP lol. At least you got him. He's a tremendous unit.

    It's really unnecessary exaggeration. And, welcome to Internet
    I will be leveling him if I need him, but there are other alternative units that will do just fine for me. I guess it's my fault for conveying the wrong message
    If you require the abilities from the units, I don't see why not
    Just like Oulu as well, I felt that anima oulu is quite terrible because of the very low rec. Then again, I would do the same thing because it's raaga and I would like to have its abilities
    Being pro/noob and all these gaming 'ranking' terms aside, it's all personal preferences...
