CV: Suzumura Kenichi
Role: Lightning AoE Attack, Vicious Lion
Bearing the stigma of having an elder brother who is a traitor to the Sanctuary, he remains true to his beliefs through adversity and is one of the most righteous Gold Saints. He is one of the most righteous Gold Saints, the embodiment of zeal and courage and a role model for all Saints.
Light Speed Fist: Basic attack, 0 cost
Deals 50% (52%/55%/57%/60%) P.DMG to 1 enemy.
Passive skill - Thunder Bolt: 0 cost
Attacks have an 80% chance of being followed up by numerous bolts of thunder, each one dealing 82% (84%/86%/88%/90%) damage of the previous bolt for up to 6 bolts.
Lightning Plasma: Seventh Sense Awakening skill, AoE damage, 2 cost
He uses Art of the Light Speed Fist, and his blows form an electric web which the enemy cannot dodge. Deals 65% (70%/75%/80%/85%) P.DMG to all enemies.
Tip: A very powerful skill for landing last hits. Couple it up with control-type Saints and watch your enemies fall...
Passive skill - Lion's Fang: Buff, 0 cost
If the enemy is under any form of control, all 6 Thunder Bolt attacks will trigger
Leo Aiolia is a fairly strong Gold Saint with very high burst damage. His only shortcoming is that his burst damage is rather unreliable and reliant on luck. He is suitable for players who love an occasional surprise. As Lion’s Fang has a 100% chance to proc when attacking controlled targets. Pair him up with control-type Saints and watch the magic unfurl.
Red: Physical Stone (P.ATK & P.DEF)
Yellow: Dual Defense (P.DEF & C.DEF)
Blue: Staunch (P.Crit)
Physical Stone grants good P.ATK; couple it with Staunch’s P.Crit increase and you've got some good damage. Aiolia’s damage multipliers are on the low side of the spectrum, and the damage of attacks triggered by Lion’s Fang gradually decreases. Therefore, raising his physical attack might be the only way to really increase his damage.
Special Cosmo: King Giant (Deals an additional 60% damage against targets with less than 40% HP)
One of the few Special Cosmo capable of increasing a Saint’s damage. Increases Aiolia’s damage and ability to land killing blows. It’s a good choice for Aiolia as his skills’ damage multipliers are rather low.
Recommended lineup: Kiki + Virgo Shaka + Leo Aiolia + Eagle Marin + Chameleon June + Andromeda Shun
As Aiolia’s passive makes his Lion’s Fang trigger all its 6 attacks against controlled targets, a lineup revolving around him should contain controllers whose skills have a fairly high chance to trigger. There are two control Saints in the recommended lineup: Shun and Shaka. One is an AoE controller and one is a speed controller. This makes it possible to guarantee that Aiolia can deal his burst damage.
When faced with Aiolia, you must take note of the lineup he's in. Does it contain powerful Saints? If it does, and the Saint is one who is rather difficult to take down (for example Camus with reflect damage), then consider taking down Aiolia first. Without support at his side, Aiolia’s damage is completely dependent on luck. So yeah, if you feel unlucky, then just kill him first. If he doesn't have any powerful controllers in his team, then he’s usually acting as a support damage. And you should probably focus on the more powerful attackers in the lineup.
