Pavia is a 4-Star Attacker with the best element in Reverse 1999. He’s a lone wolf kinda’ a guy that works as a mercenary. Even though he’s strong by himself, how does he hold up with a team? Is Pavia worth pulling in Reverse 1999?

Reverse 1999: Is Pavia Any Good?

Pavia is a strong Attacker who focuses on dealing with multiple enemies at once. Because he has a lower rarity, he’s often considered the poor man’s Eternity since they basically fill the same role. Along with using mass attacks, he also self-heals, which fits his lone-wolf persona. You’ll want to focus on using his Ultimate, Nosier Than Me to take out a lot of enemies at once

What makes Pavia different is that he actually benefits from a party member dying. If you lose a team member, he’ll gain Critical Rate and Critical Resist Rate by +10%. While this benefits him, losing an entire party member just to boost Pavia isn’t worth it. However, if a party member dies this can get you out of a tight spot.

So how does he hold up against the 6-Star Eternity he’s so often compared to? Actually pretty good. They fill the same role pretty well. However, what makes Pavia fall behind is that he’s not as tanky. His self-heal abilities will keep him alive if he gets hit with some regular attacks. But if he’s hit with a few strong ones he’ll be knocked out.

Reverse 1999 Pavia Abilities 

Now, let’s take a look at the specific abilities Pavia has. He focuses on dealing with multiple enemies at once while healing himself with his Ultimate.

  • Nosier Than Me (Ultimate) — 1-target attack. Deals 400% Mental DMG. The caster enters [Self-healing] status for three rounds: When the round beings, HP +(Lost HP x25%) to the caster.
  • Dirty Things — [Attack]Mass attack. Deals 120% Mental DMG to two enemies. If the caster’s HP is above 50%, this attack deals 50% more Mental DMG.
    • Level 2 — [Attack]Mass attack. Deals 180% Mental DMG to two enemies. If the caster’s HP is above 50%, this attack deals 75% more Mental DMG.
    • Level 3 — [Attack]Mass attack. Deals 300% Mental DMG to two enemies. If the caster’s HP is above 50%, this attack deals 125% more Mental DMG.
  • Poor Sod — [Attack]Mass attack. Deals 135% Mental DMG to two enemies. If the caster’s HP is below 50%, then deals 40% more Mental DMG.
    • Level 2 — [Attack]Mass attack. Deals 200% Mental DMG to two enemies. If the caster’s HP is below 50%, then deals 60% more Mental DMG.
    • Level 3 — [Attack]Mass attack. Deals 330% Mental DMG to two enemies. If the caster’s HP is below 50%, then deals 100% more Mental DMG.

How Does Pavia Stack Up? 

So, should you try to pull Pavia? Yes, and even if you don’t want to you probably will. Since he’s only a 4-Star character, he’ll be easy to pull. If you’d rather have Eternity for powerful attack — which you should — he’s a great fill-in. He’s great at crowd control and his self-healing abilities are great. 

Even though his personality and effects lead you to believe he’s a lone wolf, Pavia will definitely need some help for his lack of defense. If you pair him with a good Healer and Support he’ll do just fine. However, when you get into the late game you will need to replace him with Eternity if you want to keep a similar team composition to what you’re used to. 

Eternity is definitely worth pulling in Reverse 1999. He focuses on mass attacks and can heal himself.  For more tips and tricks, check out our dedicated guides hub. There, you’ll find our best characters tier list and whether or not Tooth Fairy is worth pulling.
