EX Videl PUR has a lot to offer as a Defensive Fighter and it’s not just her towering stats--she has a resilient toolkit that pairs incredibly well with current the Female Warriors.
As a balancing measure, she does suffer from an underwhelming Z-Ability which restricts her to the core and puts her in competition with far better alternatives like SP SSJ2 Caulifla PUR.
Similar to SP Ribrianne BLU, she reduces all incoming Damage by 25% for 15 counts every time she is switched in through her “Resolve” Unique Ability. This is very noticeable in Combat, even against Yellow Fighters.
Tit for Tat
The Resolve Ability also grants a 10% Damage Buff to her Team for every Strike and Blast Arts Card used by the Enemy against her, which roughly translates to 30-40% increased Damage after each Enemy Combo. This pairs great with her Dual Strike deck and the fact that Female Warriors are predominantly Strike-centric.
Her Strike Defense Z-Ability at 5 stars doesn't transition to a double Buff and instead serves Purple Fighters, which isn't nearly as useful.
The best duo for this Fighter is without a doubt SP Ribrianne BLU. Both are great Tanks with incredible Damage potential and EX Videl PUR even covers her Green weakness.
Also a must-have due to the powerful stat Boosts all across the board.
+30% to damage inflicted for 30 timer counts. Inflicts all enemies with Attribute Downgrade "-1 Arts Card Draw Speed level" for 15 timer counts. Reduces enemy Ki by 40. Requirements: 5 timer counts must elapse.
Resolve: Sustained Damage CUT
Reduces damage received by 25% for 15 timer counts when this character enters the battlefield. While this character is on the battlefield, +10% to damage inflicted by allies for 10 timer counts when enemy uses a Strike or Blast Arts Card.
The following effects occur when this character is switched to standby. Restores own health by 15% (activates 3 times). Cancels own Abnormal Conditions and Attribute Downgrades.
Her toolkit excels at survivability while simultaneously Buffing her Teammates with every Strike and Blast Card used against her.
She has some tough competition for core in Female Warrior Teams as their primary Purple, but is still a justifiable pick.
She has some stiff competition with SP SSJ2 Caulifla PUR, but can still form an incredible Defensive Team when paired with SP Ribrianne BLU. Both are primarily Melee-focused,hold two Strike Arts Cards, and are hard to take down. Female Warriors are dying for new releases, so her stock has been hurt by the drought.
