|★||If you need AoE for some reason and need it on a budget||
Let's get this out of the way quickly. It has godawful single-target DPS, and in most cases where you need cleave, Manticores can do the job. However, they're cheap to field, you can get them easily, and some of you might not have enough Manticores. The AoE attack is surprisingly much bigger than it seems (roughly the size of a grenade's AoE) and with boosts from a Ringleader that can buff it, it's not that bad. However, it's also not especially great otherwise.
It does, however, have really long range that it can contribute to a formation if nothing else. YMMV.
