Yeah, that was me being very blunt.
I just recently got access to one of the best farming teams in the game--Space Ishtar NP2, Waver and double Skadi. This team obsoletes the need for any other AOE NP5 Beatsticks when farming. For me, Nightingale would have to be good in a support role for me to use her. Really disappointed with how she turned out since I can't run a team where she is anything but suboptimal.
Need to boost your damage? Chiron and Santa Altera are better.
Need debuff clear or some other form of survival? Medea Lily, Asclepius, and even Martha are all better. And no I don't care that buff removal res is a bad effect.
The emphasis on offensive buff removal is questionable. Really, make her debuff clear the standard or let her remove defensive buffs and she becomes significantly better.
Looks like I was too harsh on Astolfo though. His neutral damage is really good and he can triloop with BG start too. The real question is how he compares to Kama.
