I recently got Contessa Argento, but my friend in game told me not to use her. I see a lot of people in game use it, and she is really goof in battle? So, fellow pirates, should I or should I not use her, and why?
As a player I would say yes in my opinion, a fast, powerful and interesting companion.
Mind the low defense by the way, that's a lot of dodge, speed, damage and a decent health. At least that's how, I trained her. I can't say much since, I have her in the team not so long ago. At least, when in stealth she is one powerful companion.
This may be because your friend could be a different class, or just has a different playstyle. I am a Privateer like you and I am LOVING having a damage dealer like Contessa that can also protect her friends. She is a good companion to have in my opinion. I recommend trying her out in battle yourself and seeing if she fits YOUR playstyle. If she does, great! Use her as much as you would like :) If she doesn't, that's also okay too! I hope this helped a bit and that you have a fantastic week!
