Unit of The Week: Pure Heart Jewel Knight, Ashlei

Become a cornerstone of the future! Pure Foundation! 
[AUTO] Limit Break 4 (This ability is active if you have four or more damage): When a «Royal Paladin» rides this unit, choose your vanguard, and that unit gets [Power]+10000/[Critical]+1 until end of turn.
[AUTO](VC): When this unit attacks a vanguard, this unit gets [Power]+2000 until end of that battle.
[CONT](VC/RC): Lord (If you have a unit without a same clan as this unit, this unit cannot attack)
Pure Heart Jewel Knight, Ashlei is one of the most powerful warriors on Cray. She leads to the Jewel Knight unit under the Royal Paladins. Her blade rivals the true vanguard Majesty Lord Blaster! Despite being stated as a power warrior in her lord, Asheli is very unimpressive. This is very odd considering her blade rivals Majesty Lord Blaster's blade.

Pure Heart Jewel Knight, Ashlei is one of the weakest Break Rides and this is surprising for Royal Paladins because their support is usually powerful. The additional 10K power and critical are not going to give a player much advantage. The opponent will play a Perfect Guard to waste the Break Ride play.

Furthermore, Her Break Ride skill is not related to the Royal Paladin's theme. A Royal Paladin player expects units to superior call comrades from the deck or gain power by having allies on the field. Ashlei fails to do both abilities. Not even the majority of Jewel Knights benefits from their leader's skill.

However, Ashlei is not completely worthless. She serves as the base unit for Broken Heart Jewel Knight Ashlei Reverse. Fearless Jewel Knight, Julia is the only Jewel Knight who can benefit from the Break Ride skill. The extra critical will give Julia the ability to superior call at least two units to rear-guard circles.

In conclusion, Pure Heart Jewel Knight, Ashlei is the most disappointing Break Ride in the game. Her skill design is very bad for a leader. Her clan does not benefit from her generic Break Ride skill. To make matters worse most of the Jewel Knights do not gain advantage from their leader. Leaders normally have skills to give benefits to their comrades. Ashlei will only be remembered as the worst Break Ride.
