Blue Archive banner 7/25-8/1 should you pull?

Misono Mika Blue Archive

It’s finally here, the recruitment “Fest” featuring Misono Mika.

During the Fest, Mika will be available as the ONLY banner unit, and for good reason: anyone else would be a waste of time.

Mika is who we’ve been telling you to prepare for in our banner guides since April. Normally we end with a comment on whether or not to pull but we’ll tell you right now.


Below we’ll explain why.

Just in case you skimmed the image, go ahead and read her Sub Skill Benedictio again.

All her attacks are 100% critical hits. She scales insanely with buffs to Crit Damage and just does massive damage intrinsically. On Japanese servers Mika is used in almost all content outside of Red raids in bad weather and even then she might still worm her way in.

Mika is amazing and just like the past Fest characters she’s difficult to replace.

Other Fest Characters

Wakamo and Swimsuit Hoshino are also in the pool of 3-star units for the duration of Mika’s banner, but unfortunately they can’t be sparked for; nor do they have their own banner. They just have a chance to be picked up during Mika’s fest.

This mechanic is kind of shameless in getting people to burn money for purely random chance without pity mechanics… thankfully Wakamo and Hoshino generally aren’t in Raids together, so you could always rent one of them from a Club mate.

Should I Pull?

Yes. Yes. Yes. Just pull. We’re not going to beat around the bush. There’s a few Limited characters coming in the near future but Mika is the peak of what you want to roll for. Get Mika.
