Analysis

Review

Awakened Hilde is a wall. The strongest, sturdiest, and most annoying wall in the game. Sadly, her biggest problem is that she's nothing else besides being a wall. While other Defenders help the team in other ways besides staying alive and keeping the backline safe, Awakened Hilde is too selfish to care about them and keeps charging forward - sometimes even to her utter demise from outspacing her own healers.

She is by no means a bad employee. Whenever you encounter a PVE stage where your units die too fast, just drop A. Hilde first and she will carry you due to her 5% MDL, barriers, and her crazy high HP/DEF stats. The problem is, a wall is not just what new players need. Sure, while she will do the job and stay alive, other Awakened employees can not only do the same, but they can also deal damage simultaneously.

It's worth noting, though, that recently her PVE stock rose - she's commonly used in Dive 48-50 teams, even auto for some players. There are very few tanks that can achieve this and Hilde makes it the easiest among them.

In PVP, she also works great in lower elo ranks as most players there simply do not have the means to stop her. The same applies for new servers - no one has any gear and there are not many units that can even hope to chip her. Later on though, while she becomes less viable, she still remains usable.

Pros & Cons
Pros

- the best wall in the game, great in any PVE mode besides Raids,

- will tank for you for days,

- her charge allows her to reach the squishier backline.

Cons

- she is nothing else besides being a wall, and for 6 cost you expect an Awakened Employee to do a bit more.
