Harper is the first 6 star Fast Disarming character to be released into TWD:RTS. Harper’s lightning fast Rush, combined with Disarming, makes Harper an all round badass when it comes to dismantling and controlling her foes:
Harper’s Rush causes her to attack 3 times to a single enemy while reducing the entire enemy team’s Attack and Defense stats by 50% for 2 turns. The triple multi-attack can help Harper trigger her weapon effect more frequently, as well as soften any future enemy targets for herself or her teammates. With an incredibly fast 58 Rush, Harper can easily maintain a constant state of debuffing and control that is difficult to overcome.
Providing Focus and Crit is a great benefit for Harper and her ability to control the enemy team. Since Disarming requires a critical hit to trigger the effect, having extra critical chance can help improve the consistency of applying Disarm. With Human Shield, Confuse, and Taunt being popular (especially for defense teams), a 3 turn Focus really allows Harper to have free reign to tackle any enemy and cripple their overall effectiveness.
Disarming is a great Specialist Skill that provides that additional layer of safety when dealing with highly potent weapon effects, since the Disarm debuff prevents the effect from triggering. Great for dealing with “Stun Guns” or other difficult weapon effects. A highly recommended Specialist Skill for almost any team composition.
Stun when attacking is a very powerful weapon effect, especially on Harper. Her multi-attack Rush helps with triggering the effect, as well as being an “upgraded” form of the Disarm debuff due to weapon effects not triggering when the character is stunned. It’s a win-win for Harper and her teammates either way, since either the enemy is likely to be either Stunned or Disarmed; both useful for taking control of the battle.
[6 Star] Synergistic Characters
Fast Lydia – When using Harper on a Fast + Tough defensive team, Lydia is a great leader to use since she provides a large amount of protection for Harper through both her +40% HP/DEF leader skill, as well as her Bonus HP and DEF boost Rush. If you need Harper to be protected on your Fast + Tough team, Lydia is ideal.
Tough Carl – If you are looking to use Harper more offensively on a Fast + Tough team, then Carl may be a better option. His leader skill provides both ATK and AP generating boosts to his team, helping Harper unlock her Rush sooner. The added ATK boost is a solid bonus too when combined with Harper’s debuffing abilities.
Strong Gabriel – When considering Harper for a melee defense team, Gabriel is the clear choice, since Gabriel can make sure Harper stays in the fight and can keep her free and clear with his penalty recovery Rush. His leader skill also provides Harper that extra +40% HP/DEF boost as well, allowing Harper to take additional hits and still keep going. If you don’t have Gabriel available to be used as part of your team, Strong Carl is a solid alternative.
Fast Wayland – Wayland’s entire kit is designed around attacking low HP enemies to trigger his weapon effect and Decapitate that enemy. Harper is a great complimentary character for Wayland, since she not only makes it safer for him to attack his enemies (via Disarm / Stun), but also buffs Wayland and debuffs the enemies. This makes it significantly easier for Wayland to trigger Decapitate against more defensive opponents.
Strong Shiva – Shiva is a great offensive tool to combine with Harper, since Harper’s weapon effect can potentially Stun an enemy, which Shiva’s Cutthroat Specialist Skill can take advantage off, along with gaining that extra damage from Harper’s -50% Defense debuff to the enemy team (and +50% ATK to your team).
