Ham is a bit of an oddball when it comes to buff cards. He's one of the few cards that can buff the party's attack with his main skill, sharing this distinction with the likes of Eru, Baphomet, and Aphrodite. Ham carves out his own niche by buffing both attack and agility, easily being able to supply +2 to both with a single 15% subcard boost. While this sounds like a fantastic deal there are some drawbacks, for starters he can only buff the party's attack and agility on straight+ which is often easier said than done. The other and possibly more dire drawback is that Ham has a chance of inflicting a defense debuff on you, and while the chance of getting and amount the debuff actually inflicts decreases with skill level most players often feel better off taking one of the other more reliable buff cards over Ham.
That isn't to say you can't work around said debuff however as there are several subcard options to negate defense debuffs. Since he does have the ability to spread on straight+ he has the option to subcard Xebec, giving the party an additional +1 defense and canceling out the potential debuff in the process. Diamond would also be an acceptable substitute while also providing the 15% boost necessary to push Ham to +2 on his main buffs, although her buff is a tossup between agility and defense while also requiring a straight or better to activate.
In short Ham is most certainly a card that won't be on many players wishlists. While the attack boost is certainly noticeable the agility boost is a bit less so unless you're planning on using cards with low hit rates or enjoy having a chance to dodge enemy attacks. If either of those fit your criteria however, Ham is your pig-man.
|AGI/ATK BUFF||0.85 (+1?)||1 (+1)||1.15 (+1)||1.3 (+1)||1.45 (+1)||1.6(+1)||1.75(+1)|
As noted, Sl7 is extremely important- Allowing you to hit +2 on both stats with a +15% Skill Boost, and reducing the DEF Debuff to levels negatable by Xebec or Diamond with only a 40% chance of occurring, and looking like far less of a complete scrub beyond running Ham. Noted, this Skill also shifts to AOE on Straight+, buffing the entire Party and spreading all effects.
- Increases the Party's DEF if your DEF is Negative.
- DEF Buff is based on the Buff needed to get you back to 0. So if you're at -4 DEF for example, the Party is Buffed for +4 DEF.
- If the DEF Debuff sends your DEF below 0, the Party's DEF is Buffed as a result.
As with many other older Cards, Ham Han was looking a bit old in the tooth with numerous other Red Buff cards being released, most of which tended outshine him. Fortunately, Awakening gives Ham Han some nice improvements by making his Buff inherently AoE now. The DEF Debuff unfortunately still remains, but it's still a relatively low chance to occur. However, an extra bonus Ham Han gets is that he can also Buff the Party's DEF if your DEF is Negative. The DEF Buff is based on how much DEF you need to get back to 0, making it particularly strong if your DEF is very low. As such, Ham Han has the potential to Buff all of the Party's Stats if the right conditions are met.
Ham as a subcard is almost as much of an oddball as he is a main card. While having a 20% chance to activate a 1.5x power boost does seem attractive, it will leave your card out of any potential skill links in the team's hand. This can actually work in your favor if you have Ham equipped to a non-attacking card however as it will leave any potential skill links available for your teams attacking cards, oddly enough this also makes Ham a suitable subcard for himself. In the end it's up to you to decide if the relatively low activation rate is worth losing out on a potentially more powerful link.
