RIIC Base Skills
Botzu's Quick Evaluation
- no DP recovery!!
- Extremely weak attack and defense that doesn't scale.
- The Specialist Fast Re-Deploy Operators are much better.
“Victory is the most welcome news.”
As an Oni that prefers the dark and is rarely seen without her mask, the name Yato, or “Night Sword” suits this Rhodes Island Vanguard well. She is a low rarity Starter that can block 2 enemies.
Yato has a very low DP cost in addition to the shortened redeployment time granted by her Fast Redeployment talent. Unlocking her potential will reduce these even further, making her an extremely cost efficient drop. But even off the battlefield, she can be a valuable asset in the Trading Post, as her RIIC skill is better than some higher rarity units.
Yato’s main downside is her rarity, which means her low level cap will make her quickly fall behind other operators and that she cannot use special skills. Noticeably, Yato cannot recover DP like typical Vanguards. Thus, she functions more as a redeployable, low-cost Guard.
Overall, Yato is a low-rarity, low-cost filler unit that can be rapidly deployed to stop enemies or used until better units are available, though she might find better use manning the Trading Post.
Newbie Tier List Explanation
Not really a Vanguard, because she doesn't generate DP. She's really a 2* Fast-Redeploy Specialist. That's pretty useful to have around, though.
Base Skill Analysis
Yato's second RIIC Base Skill is earned upon reaching Level 30.
Is it worth it? Probably. It will definitely be useful for players who are running 2-5-2 or 1-5-3, as they will likely need all the Factory buffs they can get. Her Trading Post Skill is better, though, so if you don’t need more Factory workers, this can be skipped.

As a result, people tend to overlook the fact that she's there. She doesn't seem to mind though, instead focusing on diligently carrying out every task given to her.
Dr. Kal'tsit has praised her as 'the cornerstone of Rhodes Island.'
Archive File 2Increase Trust to 100.
Her presence as a Rhodes Island Operator is taken for granted, but if she were to suddenly disappear one day, it's unclear how many people would actually notice.
Archive File 3Increase Trust to 150.
Like Noir Corne, she is rarely seen without her mask.
