First Impressions

Self Attack Buff & Pierce: Neve has a strong self attack buff upon full burst with pierce. However, this only lasts for two rounds, which makes this burst damage rather than a DPS buff. She is interestingly the first shotgun with pierce, though it remains to be seen how valuable pierce is on a close range weapon.

Self Critical Rate Buff: Worthless while bugged.

Self Hit Rate Buff: This is a good buff on a shotgun. Neve’s hitrate buff lasts for 20 seconds which is good uptime and should provide a good DPS increase. It should be noted that Pepper’s burst can give Neve’s burst self-buffs 100% uptime thanks to the stack bug.

Damage to Lowest Health: This skill should help to quickly kill off weak mobs with low HP, and is a good source of DPS in boss fights.

TL;DR: Neve is a great burst 3 shotgun DPS for F2P players who do not own Drake, Sugar, Maiden, Isabel, or Pepper. She will be very valuable for those struggling with Interception S Gravedigger, and other boss fights or close-range stages.

Should You Raise?
