Builds

PvP Bruiser

As is for bruisers the general stats we want to look at is HP%, speed, Crit%, Cdmg%. For Choux, this build is even more straight forward as she has no need to consider eff%, making her fairly straight forward to build.

Artifact

Draco Plate - is the best all around artifact provided players don't have specific stat needs. It brings a solid amount of stats to round off a build but the critical damage down could potentially be wasted as Choux has Crit Resist buff.

Alencinox's Breath - is good for players who prefer their Crit Dmg neck but still needs to round out some Crit Chance by providing up to 30% Crit Chance.

Snow Crystal / Durandal - does the same thing with different activating conditions. I would say Snow Crystal is better for players who are going for a resistance oriented build/team but overall Durandal might be more reliable.

Set Bonus

Choux has an interesting enough ability on her S1 to warrant being built on counter. With enough investment, she will hit back for solid damage + gain 20% CR, which for a bruiser is really helpful in cycling turns as well as applying even more pressure. Her best secondary set by default is easily immunity. For players who are looking for replacement, speed set should be just as good and any other 2 piece set would work but immunity is highly recommended.

Analysis

Overview

Choux (pronounced ‘shoe’) is a 5* Ice Warrior released around the second anniversary for Epic 7. She is generally deemed to be a bruiser that is a combination of Alencia and Diene. While she is quite similar to Alencia, the only aspect of Choux that is similar to Diene is the Crit Resistance buff. In terms of mechanics, Choux is a lot more like Violet as she has her own focus mechanic that will allow her to pump out some big damage with full focus and soul burns. Choux is an archetypal bruiser that can do a solid amount of damage, no RNG aspects to her kit (like Alencia passive), and has great base stats to compliment her playstyle. However, unlike Alencia, Choux has very little built in utility and needs to be well supported in a long fight.

Strengths

Highest Base HP in the Game

Sharing a constellation with Dark Corvus, Choux sports the highest base HP. For someone whose damage scales from HP, this is great news. The strengths of HP Bruisers come from the fact that they are generally very hard to kill while still maintaining heavy pressure through their decent damage.

Built in Immunity

Choux’s S3, ‘Help Me, Cream’ grant her a 2 turn immunity. This combined with an immunity set means that she can be insanely hard to control and can easily become this slow moving unstoppable force that bruisers usually represent.

Defense Penetration Single Target Nuke

Choux’s S2, ‘Fwoooosh!’, is the replacement for Alencia’s extra attack mechanic and has defense penetration to compensate for the lack of defense break in her kit. On top of that, full focus means more defense penetration and a reset AND can be soulburned to deal even more damage. This is very potent against high RES targets like high end PvP soul weavers or knights.

Weaknesses

0% Crit Chance from Awakenings

While her HP value is extremely good, this however, means that players must start their build from 15% crit chance. This weakness can be mitigated by using a crit chance necklace. However, depending on the player, this could result in a slightly lower crit damage.

General Lack of Utility

Unlike her contemporary Alencia, Choux has 1 less utility even when comparing apples to apples in exchange for a resettable nuke. While this can be mitigated by giving her a strong supporting cast, such as Krau and Maid Chloe. This puts a lot of pressure on Choux herself to be well geared and well invested.

High Mola Investment

As mentioned above, if she needs to be well invested to maximize her performance, we are looking to +15 her. In this climate, where most players hit late game and have high difficulty maintaining a healthy mola count, this could mean players need to choose between her or other bruisers (such as Dark Corvus who is on mystic rotation as of her release).
