This is a unique unit, 100% focused on PvP combat. First of all Vanessa has an amazing leader skill: 33% SPD bonus in Arena. This skill can easily let you approach Arena combats versus speed teams with balanced conditions. She also has DEF break in her second skill; Athough this may seem nothing exceptional, if you think carefully, none of the top tier fire nat5s can break enemy defense. Think on Rakan, Perna, Laika, Kumar, Zaiross, Velajuel... none of them have DEF break. So if you add a top speed buff with DEF break and then you place a Resurrection skill in the mix, you will have a state of the art supporter for Arena battles. Now, concerning runes, we have 3 options: Tanky, mixed and YOLO nuker. For the tanky and mixed options, Violent are a must, as more procs will mean more DEF breaks and faster cooldown in the resurrect skill. You can combine the Violent set with Nemesis, Guard, Energy, etc. Go Spd/HP/HP for a tanky build and Spd/Atk or CrDam/HP for the mixed one. If you want to use Vanessa in an All Attack team, you can rune her Fatal or Rage with a Blade set and go Spd/CdDam/Atk or Atk/CrDam/Atk if you can get enough speed in the subs. Her main role will be to break Defense of an enemy doing heavy damage and hitting other targets with her powerfull first skill if she can live enough to do it, completely forgetting about the resurrection skill, as she probably wont stand enough to use it. For me, the tanky build is the best by far. Althoug she can´t do any serious damage with this build, it allows her to survive long enough to be a consistent DEF breaker and to use the resurrection skill when needed. Vanessa shines when paired with a strong healer in defense. The Vanessa+Chasun or Ariel combo is really annoying for any attacker, you just need a support buffer and a nuker and it will be a hell of a team for Arena battles.

I have to redeem myself, the buff (who may seem a nerf) isn’t really that bad she autorevives a unit when it dies.

in offense it might not be that game changing but for defense this might actually be something to ponder upon

but first let us lay down everything Vanessa has

-33% spd lead in arena
(only 3 monster has this and is very valuable and one of them is an LD nat5)

-first skill is ur standard hit = damage then automatically uses 2nd skill when it kills (meh)

-second skill = def break and dmg based on enemy’s max hp
(any form of def break is good and this is good vs tankier opponents, but if vanessa is mainly used for arena defense then opponents wont bring tanky mons, on a side note she is fire so this would def break enemy lushen incase ur team survives)

-3rd skill = auto revive any unit that dies starting from the left most
(this is her bread and butter and what i think about this new “buff”, with this new change i think her focus would be on defense to make sure one of your monster would survive and get a turn...or that is the plan at least lol.)

what can we do with this buff?

maybe Vanessa Lushen Tank Tank defense

idea of this would be to revive lushen, if enemy decides to spd clear u and everything survived except lushen, then he would be revived with an atk up and *take note* will have the SAME ATB before he died. so in this case lushen won’t be revived from 0 atb allowing him to move next in case ur enemy’s monsters have all took their turn. lushen could then amputate the attacking team which could be a lost to ur opponent.

possible combos
Vanessa Lushen
Vanessa Zaiross

but point is, i think this opens room for more combos, monsters that can’t be placed on defense before for being too squishy MIGHT have a place in the arena defense now.

and don’t fret if you have vanessa, remember when rakan got buffed several times until they found his right buff, this could also be and hopefully be the case for vanessa. if they are pushing for this route for vanessa i suggest they just give the revived unit full atb and instant turn, maybe it could work out better.

I really hope they redo it or look for another way, because right now I still think it´s a heavy nerf rather than a beneficial buff.

Indeed, Vanessa has left my AD and now Wedjat is my speed leader in Arena. I will only use her vs full wind teams, otherwise Wedjat gives me more utility right now.
