Saint Seiya: Knights of the Zodiac Guide—Recommended Lineups For Beginners
In Saint Seiya: Knights of the Zodiac, you acquire new Saints by summoning them with Astral Gems. The Saint you get is completely random. Any S-Saint is worth training, but they are hard to get your hands on. Therefore, it is generally preferable to train strong A or B Saints instead. Here are a few initial lineups that are recommended for beginners; they are easy to acquire and train.
Recommended lineup 1: Pegasus Seiya + Dragon Shiryu + Wolf Nachi + Andromeda Shun + Chameleon June + Eagle Marin
This lineup is almost entirely composed of Saints that are granted to you, so beginners won't need to worry too much about acquiring them. It includes an AoE attacker, a single-target attacker, crowd controllers and a healer. You need to devote more resources to Shiryu and Seiya as they are your main damage dealers. Pair Shiryu with the Chain of Hephaestus Cosmo to deal damage to the entire enemy team, and with Seiya you should alternate between Comet Fist (for Weaken) and Meteor Fist (for damage). Your burst damage will be average, but the overall damage output is solid. Using June and Marin will increase your survivability. While this lineup has no outstanding advantages, it doesn't have any real disadvantages either. It's a well-rounded lineup. It is also good enough for daily PvE and low-level PvP.
Recommended lineup 2: Kiki + Nero Priest + Black Ikki + Black Dragon + Black Andromeda + Jango
This lineup is completely made up of B Saints, which are very easy to collect. Jango is the lineup's main Saint. With the buffs he receives from all the Black Saints, his attack will be quite high, and he'll also guide other Black Saints to attack with him, dealing decent single-target damage. The downside of this lineup is that too many spots are taken up by Black Saints in order to increase Jango's damage, leaving no room for healers and possibly reducing survivability. However, the amount of healing provided by early game characters is not very high anyway, so you might as well disregard this aspect altogether. This lineup works well during the early game.
Recommended lineup 3: Kiki + Pegasus Seiya + Hound Asterion + Phoenix Ikki + Wolf Nachi + Eagle Marin
The hardest Saint to get your hands on is Ikki, and he can be obtained by buying your 1st coupon. This is a very powerful lineup with emphasis on AoE attacks. Asterion steals energy, which enables you to fully utilize Ikki's skills, and makes it more difficult for your enemy to make frequent attacks. It's a good early-game lineup that utilizes brute force.
Every Saint has a purpose. They just need to be in the right lineup to realize their maximum potential. Once you get through the beginner's stage and have a decent-sized pool of Saints to choose from, you can start designing lineups of your own.
