    I try as hard as I can to understand team building, but this is one game where it's practically in one ear & out the other.
    I want to find a team that would be abke to give me the most wins in the arena.
    I want to be open to all possibilities so I will list all my decent units.
    (Parentheses show how many I have)

    When it comes to team building in this game I just draw a blank because it is too much to think about.
    If you have a good team out of my units, can I have an explanation so I might be able to use it to build other teams?
    Thank you for your time & consideration!:D

    Are you specifically talking about arena, and JUST arena here?

    Because the poll you have up top is a bit confusing, there's only one arena meta unit there, which is Ultor. The rest aren't generally considered suitable for arena usage these days.

    So...arena squad building is totally different from the rest of the game. Basically arena prioritises atk stat buff and normal hit mechanics (normal hit count increase, chance of AOE normals) due to first round attacks being normal attacks rather than BB/SBB. Angel idol (KO resist) ES is also fairly important in the Colosseum context though less for regular arena. There are other mechanics that help in arena such as low cost BB with a BB fill (e.g. Ophelia), but really the atk, normals, and angel idol are the key bits these days. There are other factors like the unit's targeting scripting for arena purposes but that's dropped in relative importance in the current meta.

    But you can really ignore all of that theory, because it's a lot simpler in practice.

    You see, unless someone owns a lot of arena meta units, you'd just...work around Selena and Mifune, which are free. Selena has angel idol with her Lexida sphere equipped and ES unlocked, while Mifune has high damage and a chance of AOE SP option at Omni Evo. Because Mifune can be farmed from ordinary quest maps, you can easily build a full team of Mifune (you already have 3 copies), maybe with a Selena lead, maybe with something else (e.g. Hadaron/Ultor lead), but that is basically the go-to squad. Selena and a bunch of Mifune, and even the Selena may be optional.

    The only alternative optimised arena builds are... really for people with more arena meta units, e.g. Gaston, Terry, Azurai, Mizerka, Golzo, etc. If you don't have that stuff, which you don't, then... a Mifune squad it is.

    And that's the answer you'll get from almost every player who knows arena squad building. It really is that simple. Mifune. Lots of Mifune.

    Now, if you don't have enough Mifune - which you do, I mean, but if you can't get a fourth Mifune to drop for whatever reason, then you can use other stuff - Ophelia, Ultor, perhaps. Like Selena, Ultor has angel idol on ES with sphere.

    I just meant the original Arena on the top of the list.
    Thank you, & the poll wasn't for the Arena, it was just for personal preference.
