Best Tips for PvP
- Freeze//Petrify can cancel/prevent buffs/debuffs. Frozen/petrified units cannot take any healing.
- Stun can only stun the enemies, not as useful as Freeze/Petrify.
- Snatch steals a certain percentage of the enemy stats. You can counter Snatch by using any “Purify” ability or using CC on Ban. Or you can just kill Ban.
- Since Petrify and Freeze cancel debuffs, If you use Snatch on an enemy and them you freeze/petrify it, your Snatch will be removed in the next turn.
- Do not heal your frozen/petrified units.
- Always plan ahead on what debuffs/buffs you will use on what unit.
For example, Freeze the King, then Attack Seal Jericho for the best effectiveness. If you change these targets, you will leave the King with Cleanse, making your moves totally wasted.
- If Meliodas is on low HP and you don’t want to attack him due to his Full Counter, save up until you have a skill that can kill him immediately. He cannot Full Counter if he is dead.
- Green Meliodas’s counter cannot reduce the damage taken (Blue Meliodas can). His skill is also based on HP% so if he uses the skill at full HP, you will lose just a very little HP.
- Try to build up a priority list at the starting of the battle to see who are the biggest threads.
- The priorities can change so it’s totally fine If you focus on Jericho at turn 1 then focus on King at turn 2. This is totally fine when he has great crit or when he is building his Ultimate faster than the others.
- While making the priority list, put the threats into different categories: King is a utility card, Jericho can burst damage, Ban is an annoyance who relies on his teammates after first turns, Arthur can buff his allies etc.
Hopefully, you have found this 7DS PvP guide helpful and have some nice battles in the game with the information you have gathered.
