Botzu's Quick Evaluation

+ Talent: Physical and Arts Resist with half applied to adjacent allies
+ Very durable DEF and HP with a strong DEF S1 option
+ Extremely useful S2 that can replace the need for Specialists on some maps

- S2 knocks enemies away from Croissant in all directions so enemies can be thrown in unintended directions if they aren't grouped together in front of her.
- S1 is automatic so it is not guaranteed to be active when you need it most, though it does have good up-time.

Operator Overview

“My name's Croissant, and by golly yer in luck, Baws! Ya won't find many as good at their trade as I am! I'm strong, last forever, 'n if ya hire me right now, ya get a 20% discount!”

Casual, carefree, and coin-obsessed, Croissant brings her complacent attitude and her considerable strength to Rhodes Island as a 5* Defender Operator. In addition to her crazy durability, Croissant dabbles in a few part-time odd jobs, including Pushing enemies and even a little team support.

Croissant supplements her top-tier HP and DEF with her Miracle Field Talent, which gives her and any adjacent allies a chance to resist incoming damage, be it Physical or Arts. Her Skill 1, Auto Defense, increases her DEF and the activation chance of her Talent. The Skill’s automatic activation means it cannot be timed, but the long duration and short cooldown help to make up for this. Skill 2, Magnetic Hammer, is her big-payout Skill, pushing enemies away from her in all directions and Stunning them for a few seconds. Using Magnetic Hammer, Croissant can serve the same Pushing role as a Specialist like Shaw while also being an immovable tank.  Be careful when using this Skill, however, as enemies can easily be launched in unintended directions!

Unfortunately, Croissant does have some shortcomings compared to a pure tank or a pure Pusher. Magnetic Hammer doesn’t help Croissant to mitigate damage and Auto Defense is not guaranteed to be used when you need it, so she can sometimes struggle as a tank. Meanwhile, she costs more DP to deploy than most Push Specialists and can only be deployed on ground tiles, which sometimes limits her pushing options. Magnetic Hammer also has a long cooldown, so she may not be able to push enemies as often as you’d like. That being said, all Doctors need good Defenders, and raising Croissant gives you both a good Defender and a Push Operator – a two-for-one deal! How can you say no?

Newbie Tier List Explanation

Has a strong defensive Skill and a Skill that can Push, but those things won't make a noticeable different in early game. The higher 5 star development costs make her 4 star counterparts a better, more efficient choice for early-mid game.

Note: This unit does not have Mastery grades. This means the unit is generally not one worth spending the resources of Mastery on. However this write-up should help with skill selection, should you want to use the unit regardless.

You could really go with either skill for Croissant with the best option really depends on what you want out of her. She can be a very powerful pure Defender with S1M3, rivaling (and occasionally even beating) Hoshiguma and Nian while her skill is up. However, the fact that it’s auto-activation makes her less consistent, which is even worse when you consider that pure tanking is not a very valuable niche these days. Still, it's a good Mastery target if you want Croissant to be your regular mainline Defender. Mastery provides a big boost to her up-time and dodge chance, which is important when considering her consistency issues.

However if you're looking for something a bit more unique, consider her S2 instead. It has some pretty big Mastery gains including an important force increase at M3. There aren’t a ton of places where it’s especially useful, but it’s a very fun skill in the right spots.

Base Skill Analysis

Croissant gains her second RIIC Skill at Elite 2.

It’s a good Trading Post buff, but Croissant is not typically extremely high on the list of 5 Star Operators to E2 first.  However, if you want to maximize her Shift strength by M3ing her S2, then you will get a nice Trading Post buff along the way.

An energetic messenger.
She believes that the purpose of work is to improve one's quality of life, and that shopping is the best way to improve her life.
She isn't hung up on money, but she does enjoy living paycheck-to-paycheck while jumping on opportunities to make a quick profit. She can often be seen hawking goods in various places.

Increase Trust to 100.
Messengers usually get two kinds of work: Delivering mail and messages, or transporting cargo.
The former requires speed; the latter, strength and endurance. In Penguin Logistics, Croissant was an obvious stand-out in the latter.
Also notable, Croissant is extraordinarily strong even for a Forte. Swinging a hefty hammer in one hand while carrying a heavy shield in the other is as simple as breathing to her.

While not a big operation, Penguin Logistics is well-connected at all levels in Lungmen.
Thus, taking advantage of the channels back home, Croissant's irregular hawking ventures could be a treasure trove that just might offer rarities you wouldn't find anywhere else.
Of course, don't let Croissant know if you did spot a valuable item, or she will wring your wallet.

Archive File 4

Increase Trust to 200.
Even as an Operator, Croissant has no plans to give up her hobbies and interests.
She knows an Operator will face unprecedented danger and see many unfortunate events. Nevertheless, she is still a city girl who counts her pennies.
Maybe Rhodes Island recruits civilian Operators because they're not jaded and thus fearless, but it's definitely not because they should be exposed to the cruelty of the real world. It's more like the island have many unfortunate people who needed someone as adorable as Croissant to show them what a normal, blissful life is like.
Of course, the unfortunate or hateful may begrudge the blessed, but at least it never happens at Rhodes Island.
