These ought to be high enough in G5 to qualify as actual PVP fights, even by Trips' standards....Speed Nuke does still have it's uses:

Ramantu even got sheeped while stripping (Prolly by the 6S Siphi), but Gnishak carried the day, nonetheless.

Inb4 Trips tells you that it doesn't count

So this was a surprisingly easy fusion.

I am curious how you guys intend to use this guy? and where?

I am thinking as fast and accurate as possible right now, boring build but probably perception.

Literally super duper fast and highly accurate.

Other potential build is a slower Stoneskin high accuracy super high resist build.

The real thing he's bringing as far as builds is that you'll need to have every serious arena champ in Stoneskin now. His TM steal with stun will just fully lock you out from ever going, while he goes over and over.

Which will make bomb champs more useful most likely

I see lots of speed nuke teams that use Serris or someone comparable in G5.

It will? 0_0

I guess if people still don't have built in counters for bombs on their teams, that's on them. Haha😆

Based on previous announcements, I thought Plarium wanted to speed up the Arean Meta again?

I agree that Armanz will drive even more Stoneskin, but that does not speed up the Arena Meta, that slows it down even more?

with the introduction of stoneskin accessories in clash I'm fairly certain the goal has always been get most of of your arena champs in stoneskin (whether it be full or some sort of a stoneskin/bolster split for some supports, stoneskin/insert nuke set here for dps)

with both of the poly "balances" being buffs, with multi purpose cleansers being so prevalent, etc. I have not gotten seen about zero indication the goal was to speed up arena, at any point.

Arena already takes too long, going down the 'everyone in stoneskin route' is not a good idea if we have even longer fights.

I deliberately dropped from G4 to G3/G2 tag purely to avoid the ridiculously long winded fights in G4, and if fights get longer in live as well?--- ugh no thanks.

But maybe that is just me, i dont want to have to play 3 hours a day just to do my basic and advanced quests... maybe its just me its an issue for?

to be clear, was just looking at this strictly as a player, reading the tea leaves and now we're coming up on quite a while of folks in active Clash clans getting a shot at Stoneskin + Protection accessories. Just looking at it from the standpoint of "what gives me the highest winrate"

and unfortunately that leads to potentially lengthy fights, yep. I am also of the mindset that I don't want to spend too much time in game but with Clash added and the need to rip off 200m+ NM keys, time is an issue

definitely not just an issue for just you by any stretch of the imagination, no :)

This guy makes speed and SS (to counter) the meta.

Both terrible options imo lol.

Why use Arbiter?

Just make Armanz faster by using Arbie's gear. Haha

You are going to want to probably have a much higher accuracy rating on this guy than you do with what most peope have on Arbiter. If you don't you are going to want to speed boost this guy. That and the extra speed boost on your rotation will help that much more in keeping the other team locked down.

Well, I am pretty sure you can tell the difference between a 600K power tank team right at the threshold of Platinum on the Weekend versus grinding your way to Platinum on Monday during an Arena Tourney, but just for you, here is Arbiter strutting her stuff in Live:

very atypical DPS especially in this meta, feels like he could be a bit unwieldy in lapping stone skin champs and creating very unprofitable situations 

I assume you're picking him last, most of the time

Gotcha.  That is not my typical Live Arena Team.  I use Razelvarg in one of my Classic Arena preset teams, but that may be the first time I have ever used him in Live.  In Live, I am typically full on Defense/Resistance Tank with Siphi, Harima, Pythion...

However, I fought Comacaz two fights in a row and he wiped the walls with me the frist time, so I knew I needed a different plan for round two.  Rabbit was actually there to setup Wukong & Ramantu (got banned) with the Increase Accuracy buff to ensure the opening Ramantu A3 and/or WuKong A2 would land w/o trouble.
