▌Valance – Intellect of Technomagic


<Hero Background Story>
“What’s your dream, Valance?”
“I want to find out how far can I develop the Technomagic field with my own hands.”
Valance answered to Rose’s question without hesitating.
“You’re really into researching.”
“I’ve never done or thought of doing anything else besides researching. If there is a possibility that I cannot continue working in the Technomagic field… I will have no choice but to think about other options… However, that’s not the case right now. I’m just trying my best to concentrate on what I have day by day.”

“Haha. That’s the Valance I know. I do admire you sometimes. I believe this is the reason you were friends with Crow all this time.”
“Yeah, perhaps.”

Valance, known to have no friends or lover, is not a social nor affable person at all. Valance is a straight-talker, and Crow is a man of few words, who usually speaks through his eyes than his mouth. There’s quite an age difference between these two, however, they were able to get close to each other as they shared similar personalities. They both have mentioned they wouldn’t date or marry anyone at all, but things turned out unexpectedly. Who would have thought Valance’s best friend would become the wife of that foolish man?

Valance glanced at Rose as she organized her report papers. Rose had become a newlywed couple with Crow not long ago, and she had the happiest and brightest smile of all.
“……I might have… One more dream.”
“Really? What is it?”
“It’s a secret.”

~ A friend who understands me and a friend that I can trust. May your happiness last forever. I wish to stay by their sides, to watch over and protect their happiness. Even though it may seem somewhat emotional, the joy I felt at the moment I made the promise to myself… The emotions I felt wasn’t so bad. ~ Valance chuckled as she knew she would keep this secret to herself for the rest of her life.

Even if it’s a dream that will never come back, Rose is still smiling within my memories. And the friend that was part of my dreams, still remains. Valance makes up her mind one more time as she leaves Magos Le’flamme. Rose, your happiness lives on within this place. That’s why I won’t fall back to mourn and regret.

“Corbeau Rose. Switch to Automatic Maneuver Mode.”

I will protect my happiness with my own strength.

  1. Sadly her T5 Dark and UW effect are completely useless if you don’t have any TM gears… So are her SW A0 and arguably A1…

    UT1 will probably be her main UT for the non Hero damage increase alone. UT3 may be useful for Galgoria or WB3 though I doubt the skill’s gonna have more than 80% uptime – S3’s never have full uptime without CDR. UT2 looks as useless as S2 itself – with a duration of just 5 seconds I doubt it’s gonna make any difference in a battle unless the skill’s cooldown is low too, which is highly unlikely (but I can hope it will be, can’t I?) UT4 is a fully defensive UT but its effects are nothing that other heroes can’t already provide.

    Out of her perks only her S1 Dark seems usable and it’s nothing that Lavril can’t handle on her own. Her S2 perks seem good but since the skill lasts only 5 seconds I doubt they will be of any use. Both of her S4 perks are good – one defensive and one offensive… But as all good things they too are limited and only apply to TM raids…

    She may be useful in TM raids but I don’t see her replacing anyone from my WB teams.

    1. Agreed do vespa think that up to 40% ddte, 25% nh dmg, crit and cmdg buff, mana battery and cooldown reduction is good enough in 2021 almost 2022???
      5 second duration what a insult, better give us ways to reduce cooldown!

  2. I hope I’m reading this wrong. I’m looking through Valance’s skills and noticing nowhere in there that it says she can’t be targeted by her own skill effects. I also don’t see that shes not affected by CDR effects. so If I have this right, you can stack Mad Atk on Valance to where shes the 2nd highest Atk hero or even 3rd if you use Medi, then have her UT1 and S1L…. and infinitely use her skills all day long as long as she has the MP required?

    I don’t know, maybe I’m blind. Vespa, I need more context.

    1. The UT1 50% CDR doesn’t work like Oddy S3, it buffs her S1 CDR from 0.2s to 0.3s, so in total Valance’s S1 reduce CD by 3s over 15s and with UT1 it would be 4.5s over 15s, I’m curious if her S1 can stack (or partly stacks?)
      but I’ll leave the testing to the others (If someone tested this please let us know)
