I am starting this little (haha, yeah it's not little) topic here in case anyone is interested in discussing possible Majin teams, and if certain teams are possible. I will start. Criticism is welcome, but do be helpful when doing so.
So I'd wager the best team to allow for Amanda tanking Kimaris would have to include units that best work for that kind of team. In not so many words, it should have enough healers to manage healing 4829 dps. It would still need units to deal enough damage to the other mobs, to get rid of them. So for a 15 unit sortie, what units could I bring to allow Amanda to tank Kimaris (and this will be theory-crafted, if the numbers favor it heavily than the only error would be in the person using it, if the numbers are quite close than that's another story).
This is gonna be complicated as I'm unsure if Koharu and Tenma's abilities can reduce Kimaris' true damage, as such I will be making a few mentions that may or may not change depending on such an answer.
So I'll start with the if yes than case: So Kimaris' atk power is reduced from 4829 dps to about 2891 dps and his defense is about 1050, MR is 10. This is if Tenma and Koharu can reduce his atk. Do note that I am doing this right before going to sleep, and I have no experience with some of the units I'm about to mention. As such if this doesn't work, please tell me why, and put some detail into it, as I really am just buff stacking these things.
So for healing we have Dorothea (cause she can heal everyone in range while attacking for more than 1000 damage), Rinne (gotta have that near map-wide heal), Aix (buffs other healers, and has good healing herself), other units that heal but could be switched out are Eterna (can attack while healing on skill, has high atk), Elyse (either one, but NY may be better here, should be considered for use, as she's a great healer), Kikyou (in the team for the passive buff, could be deployed if wanted). Now for more damage/buffs, Teeny (provides nice buffs to all melee slot females, like Aix), Aisha (hp buff, and could be deployed for meteor shower, and cooldown reduction), Uzume (passive buff, could be deployed for more buffing), Machina (debuffs enemies, and has a token that both heals and debuffs without taking up a deployment slot), Tenma (obvious), Koharu (also obvious), Amanda (to tank, potentially the boss). Up generation, Aria (slight atk buff, but others may be considered for either the buff or Up generation to replace her, this was mostly of the top of my head after the fact), Diera (provides tokens, and gives a good Up generation, could be replaced if needed). Other possible units being Loretta (nice tokens), Blanche (buff, and nice tokens, Moltena is another possible choice but she doesn't buff the team, just her deadly dogs), Ashera (dps, since the enemy will have basically no def due to all the debuffs, Rion or Nanaly could also do, in fact Rion may be preferred since she'll be buffed more), Sylseth (dps/tank for mobs, also means 0 MR for enemies).
This is a hastly put together team, if Kimaris' atk can be reduced by Koharu than this should work, it's possible, a major pain no doubt, but possible. It may have kinks, and some units may not be as good as other possible units, but this is a team that can possibly do Kimaris, though I've no way to confirm nor deny it as I have very few of the units I listed here (the units I do have are, Tenma, Koharu, Dorothea, Rinne, Rion, Eterna, Blanche, Uzume, Loretta, and Aria, so I couldn't test it even if I wanted to).
Units that should be deployed for, or stay deployed for the boss: Koharu, Amanda, Dorothea, Rinne, Lapis, Aix, Teeny, Machina, Eterna, Prince, and either Uzume or Kikyou. Other units can switch out, these are however based on which units you choose to bring. I am aware this may not work as intended, I would appreciate it if another would try it, or try what they think is the best possible team that allows Amanda to tank Kimaris. I will take your criticism now, and no name calling, as that helps no one.
(edit):Oh and a slight alteration to this, found out that Koharu can debuff true damage, so Tenma should also be able to as well.
Well it's nice to know that she can do it, and really that's all I wanted to know, so thanks for the videos. Do you have any teams in mind that include units that may not be popular or best to use, but you still use them? Also what would you say is a good majin team for me, given the units I have?
Tenma and koharu will stack but they won't add together to form 70%, instead you get a solid -20% then the result of that divided by 50% for 30s, which is 60% reduction. Then while on cooldown, 25% which is a 40% reduction.
And no, orochi won't stack with tenma. (Passives won't stack.)
And honestly exceptions never make the rule, so while Amanda can be used in kimaris to tank him its by no means an optimal play.
She's probably much more useful in tong-tian due to her high damage.
You doubt my math, ok here's my calculations. 3300 x 0.80 = 2640 (result of Tenma's passive), 2640 x 0.75 = 1980 (result from being in Koharu's range), normal dps of Kimaris is than 2897 (cause Kimaris' atk spd is 1.463, this is a slight error from my original post cause I rounded it to 1.46, when I should've rounded to 1.463, difference of 6 damage due to error). So when Koharu's skill is active the result would than be 2640 x 0.50 = 1320, for a dps of 1931. I don't think my calculations are wrong, as they follow the logic of the game, passives, than deployment and skills. Debuffs have the same logic as buffs, just it uses a number less than 1, so it's always multiplication.
Overall I only prove the point that you can use her, and that she's not the worst option for it (and given that Nocvt gave the link to a number of videos where Amanda is tanking Kimaris, I think she could be considered viable for Kimaris). I don't see why people seem to not read (or forget) the part where I say that using Amanda to tank Kimaris (or some of the other majins), isn't the best option, and that it could be easier to use another unit. Though on a side note out of the Majin events I have done (none going over lvl 10), I don't think I ever did Tongtian's event (also not done a couple of the others either, but I'm not sure if they've come up or not since the time I started playing, and if they did I may have just ignored them to work on something else). As such I wouldn't know about it, but from looking it up I suppose Amanda does work there also, but you gotta deal with all those other named hermits, the Raijin and Fuujin, it looks like a pain, though that may be because it is, but there's sure to be ways to reach the damage threshold with a few units, Amanda being one of them.
I only dedicated a few units to Amanda for her survivability, as well as the survivability of the team. Aix, Rinne, Dorothea, each are able to heal multiple units at once, and Dorothea can attack whilst healing, Eterna can also attack whilst healing on skill, otherwise she's throwing fireballs. Machina's token both debuffs enemies, and heals passively, and with Machina everything she hits will have basically no def. Everything else on the team is mostly to deal with mobs, add more dps, or buff other units. I always build teams around a core group of units, in this case those units are Amanda, Tenma, Koharu, Rinne, and Dorothea (four of which I use myself), every other unit in the team is to assist in their own way. Wither that be adding more dps, clearing mobs, additional healing, buffs and debuffs, etc.
So given that (as well as the fact other people have used other such teams that include Amanda tanking Kimaris), I'd say she is viable, a viable option is one than can be done, and so it can range from very viable, to not that viable. A good option is just that, I believe my Shu-Xian and her tokens are a good option, and are very viable in dealing with Kimaris. Amanda is a possible option, a do-able one, and she is viable. The main point is that she is viable, but the other point is that sometimes she may be the only viable option for some people (and whilst there are free alternatives like Karma, not everyone has Karma either).
Many thanks to Meidozuki for this idea, and to Kkentauro for the unit list template. I also want to make a silver one but considering the only silver unit gif I've been able to find is Sharqi, I still need a melee unit (in case anyone wants to do me the favor of getting a gif of any of the following; Phyllis, Niel, Mischa, Kagerou, or Iroha, I'd appreciate it).
Okay thanks and perhaps you can help me with a slight problem, I cannot seem to figure out how to make a collapsible unit list, I believe I put the code in right, but it doesn't seem to work, maybe you could look at it and see what's wrong?
Ah thanks again, I like you almost as much as people who decide to give me snacks (and when I destroy the HBE and conquer the world again you will be rewarded, cause who would I be if I didn't make an anime reference).
