The second Colosseum Card to get an Awakening, Batista doesn't really change much. His Skill remains mostly the same as it was before with some minor improvements. The Counter becomes a Strong Counter, and if you manage a Full House+, Batista's attacks can't miss. That said, he's mostly just a standard 2x attacker. His attacks get stronger as you lose HP, but you have to fall below at least 60% HP to see any major increases. (Which is very likely if you're using him in Colo.) Even then, better Red Slash cards have come since that offer better utility or just straight-up more damage. His Attack does get a nice increase to 1795 (and up to 1895 with his measly 2 Orb Slots). All said, Batista's not a bad card, he's just another victim of the game's ever-increasing power creep. (At least he's not Rivol or Joker.)
- 6/24/16: Colosseum-only restriction removed.
- 6/22/18: Awakening Sub Skill Modified (20% Status Avoidance -> 80%)
Batista's Sub is quite interesting though a bit difficult to keep active. Essentially, when Subbed on A, he grants a powerful 80% Status Avoidance so long as your HP stays about 80%. But given how difficult that can be in the first place and lacking Damage Reduction, it makes Batista pretty poor.
Fortunately, Awakening does fix one major issue which is the Damage Reduction part, granting 10% Damage Reduction now as well as a passive 15% Status Avoidance. But much like before, as long as your HP stays above 80%, you gain a MASSIVE 80% Status Avoidance (which can't be understated enough). This can be amazingly useful against foes who love to spam Status Effects, since Batista will drastically reduce the chances of them landing. Of course, he's still not as strong as most other Damage Reduction subs (who are typically 15%+), but the trade-off is worth it against troublesome foes.
