After a few months, I was awarded a Top Operator Tag.

The tag combination gives me  Magallan for the first time.

 If anyone is interested, I’m currently doing my epic quest for best possible reward on New Year Celebration CN banner. More information can be found in my earlier post, and  my Reddit comment.

Magallan’s presence substantially aids this task, as it reduces the number of missing operators in the New Year CN banner pool. 😎

 Few operators are deserving of maximum mastery, but  Skadi the Corrupting Heart is one of them.

 After the interviews, there is a mysterious message on the 2nd Anniversary website:

I’m glad they included a lot of Supporter Chip Packs as a reward. Those could be a pain to farm. Because they require a lot of sanity to obtain. I’ll promote  Scene to Elite 2 soon after the 2anni event.

 In this simulation, you need to pay attention to when Red Avenger and Sarkaz Greatswordman move, these two are real threats and they are further boosted by Active Originium tile. Therefore, save two medics skill and Melantha’s skill until this battle.

 You must use the [Specialist Tactical Point] on the map to complete this objective. You can push those horrible Enraged Possessed Leaders to the hole by deploying  Phantom S3 on that special tile and following by his phantom to the tile adjacent to the hole, or else they can rip through your defense line in a matter of seconds if you don’t.

 [Specialist Tactical Point]: Increases the push and pull strength of the Operator on it.

Since her debut on The Wheat and the Anthem banner (featuring Chiave, Beanstalk, Iris, Archetto), Beanstalk has been one of my favorite operators I want to acquire . However, I miss out on the opportunity to have her because I initially ignored that banner, and she has avoided me ever since. I recently acquired her through the Pallas banner. And she’s fantastic, I was so astounded by her performance that I promoted her to E2 right away.

 Beanstalk is a DP-on-skill vanguard, with skills that generate DP much like Courier, Scavenger, and Texas. Just like other vanguards, she helps hold the line early on during stages - however, there’s a twist. Beanstalk is a ranged operator (with the same range as AA Snipers), and she doesn’t do any blocking. Her summons do.

 One half of our duo, Beanstalk is a unique vanguard that has AA sniper range and must be placed on a ranged tile. She has fairly low stats even for a vanguard (base 405 atk and 125 def at E2), but she’s only half of the package: once deployed, you gain access to a “tactical point” that costs 0 DP and causes a crab summon to appear at the location the tactical point is deployed. Her attacks deal 150% damage to enemies blocked by the crab, which is a considerable improvement. As she lacks any other kind of attack steroid in her kit, she still can’t do much against medium armor, but the tandem crab-bow assault can kill low armor enemies fairly quickly.
