Why Should You Farm This Card?

The Unknown Barrier Team card (5* Story Card from the end of Main Story Chapter 3 Act 4 on Lunatic) has the pre-attack effect of 2 YIN ATK UP and 50% Energy Bullet UP at Max Limit Break. This card will be highly sought for as the game provides an abundance of Friends with this bullet type.

Starting off with the 50% Energy Bullet UP alone, it defaults as the best in slot card for its bullet type, especially for Last Words. If this card is used by YIN oriented Friends, the 2 YIN ATK UP effect becomes a great addendum to boost their damage potential. As for the stats it provides, it leans a bit more towards YIN ATK (+70 YANG ATK and +80 YIN ATK).

Notes from fuujin3#2435:

  • During turn 3, the YIN ATK UP buff is capped (10 levels) even with just 2 YIN ATK UP slotted. However, there exists a low damage roll for this turn which is potentially concerning. The only solution may be giving cards with a better YIN ATK stat.
  • Last Word card requires a card that has at least 2 CRIT ATK UP or a 25% (or more) Sun/Laser Bullet UP card, preferably those with YIN ATK stat.
