special skills (tarro crads, eca die) are main for every elements of ecaflps. At now this to skill are real powerful (eca die have mega dmage boost by CHdamage, taro card now don't get you 1hp).
water brunch are real weak?
Let's take a closer look (I apologize for any errors. I writing in Russian by using Google translate)
10 ap - standart build of every class
what we can do for this:
5 rough tonge - 140 base damage (base damage is damage without element bonus). My earth sacr damage do 130 base damage with 9ap... that's real weak
2 up to scratch + 1 rough tonge or Leap .... that's 160 damge... weak too
ok now let see to vampiric spells
3 fleahopper - ya this skill nice. it give you crit hit +21 crit( but less than before)
that do 78 base dmg and don't boost by heal bonus. Bad it or good? because that skill give HP to you it's can be compared with skill which base damge is 156 and if pssive skill (flealine army) work correctly (which I'm not sure) it's analog of 216 base damge. It's real cool. Nad don\t forget it give crit hits for you (but more on that below)
hunter - a lot time ago wind eca (ya we were) can put it under enemy which get you 100% to hit them if he move... now water eca cann't do that. That's bad. This skil give you litle chance to try lock you enemy once again.. and nothing else ambiguos skill =\
1 Flea Love + 1fleahopper = 17 + 26 = 43 base dmg and HP it's look very weak... but stop it dmge enemy 3 times. That we have 17+26 (first turn) 3 fleahopper 78 dmg +17 (second) and 3 fleahopper 78 dmg +17 (third turn) = 233 dmg/3 (to find the average)= 77 dmg. Ya you was right that's real weak it's same as 3 fleahopper... but stop... this spell get bonus by heal? If it work right(which I'm not sure) it give you more HP that spam by 3 fleahopper
and you can do alternative: 1 Flea love (put glyph) + 1flea hopper 35+26= 61 base dmg and next turn is 35+78= 113 for to turn it give you 172 /2 = 86
if you anderstand this idea you can see that water cat is not weak.
and you can crit eca who hve 100% crit (most of the fight) .. but this is another story. Who want i told it.
My opinion water is is good close cobat fighter+support
