Faust was one of the two Sinners without a 000 Identity on the release, but this changed with the recent patch. And boy, the wait was worth it. N Faust stats are nearly identical to R Corp Heathcliff, pushing her toward the damage dealer role, however, unlike Heathcliff, N Faust also has great team utility..
Her speed range is 4 - 7 which is fantastic especially for her, allowing her to usually act first, apply buffs, debuffs, or use her EGO first to bolster the team. Her impressive 39 Offensive stat and 0.82 growth will ensure her damage will be relatively close to top runners like R Heathcliff or Kurokumo Hong Lu. Her Evade has the unique effect of having the enemy lose 3 Sanity when Faust evades, but her skills are so good, the Evade skill should not be used.
Speaking of skills, N Faust has no bad skills.
Her skills are great multi-coin skills with a decent base and coin power. She will have no difficulties clashing with the majority of the enemies in the game, putting her among the best clashers in the game. While all her skills inflict Nail as per N Corp standards, her skills 2 and 3 offer something unique.
Skill 2 is Faust's best skill as not only it has the best clashing potential, but it also brings to the table the Paralyze status effect and a new debuff Gaze - that increases the damage of Pierce and Blunt skills by 20%. Since both of the debuffs are applied on the next turn, it's a lot easier for Faust's allies to make use of them.
Skill 3 will not only heal the whole team's SP by 10 (and if we add Faust’s base EGO and Fluid Sac can heal even more) but it also grants everybody Pierce and Blunt damage up buff. With Faust natural base speed, this buff will be for sure utilized fully. Bonus damage of that skill requires the target to have 5+ Nails on them, and this skill can inflict 4, meaning only 1 more Nail needs to be inflicted. Either by a different ally or turn earlier which is not that hard to do.
Funnily enough, this skill does not even need to “kill” to grant the buff. If Faust is the fastest in the team and when battle will start, the buff will be applied instantly as the game already knows the target is dead. Queue “You are already dead” memes. For now, we are not sure if it is a bug or intended interaction, but it certainly makes Faust S3 a bit better.
While N Corp Faust supports her Hex Nail EGO, if you want to use her base EGO, you will need some help. Still, it's actually worth building the team to support her base EGO as it actually works really well on N Faust.
Sadly, the full N Corp team will not work at the moment, as all they have is Nail synergy. Full N Corp team will not activate any of the battle passives (or will struggle greatly) and will also struggle with EGO usage. Additionally, the N Faust battle passive requires 5 Lust skills chained to activate, which will rarely happen in human battles and never in Abno battles.
top tier clasher,
great coin values on skills,
actually can help the team with her debuffs.
if you won't do what she wants, she will kill you (this is a joke, not a game-feature).
