Vantage Vengeance Wrath is overrated, imo. Wrath is kinda unnecessary (and if I wanted crits, I'd probably just go with Anathema anyway). Vantage, I like, since it's a good safety net... and vengeance is nice for when your HP is low, but you don't really need to worry about HP if you have Nosferatu/Aversa's Night (and then maybe a Sol stacked onto that).
I prefer getting armsthrift onto my sorcerers before anything else, and then maybe galeforce (which is fun when you have Mire).
Ricken Is really the only pairing I care for for him. I see some merit in Gregor, bout otherwise it's Ricken every time. --- I'm not Superman, that's for sure. And I'm not Batman or Spiderman or Aquaman or a wolfman or a merman. I'm not brahman or common or ramen, either.
Stahl gives Myrimidon over Ricken as well as better defenses. B/c of Vantage if you decide to end him as a Sorcerer Stahl is a better option over Ricken if you are going to use Vantage+Vengeance. --- Dry Bones+Magikruiser FTW in MKW ^-^
Gregor is too important to waste on boring Laurent lol, Even Stahl I am pondering if I should waste him on Laurent or give him to Inigo .. --- Morality, like art, means drawing a line someplace.....Oscar Wilde
