Penelo might be superior to Larsa, and Banner 2 might be 2xG5, but Banner 2 has 4 dupes for me including two of the discos and only one AASB, so that's out.
Banner 1 has excellent Vayne/Larsa tech. Larsa is niche, but it's also a niche that I currently don't excel in (my best Astra source is Tyro USB1, which is great, don't get me wrong, but sometimes not having it tied to a healer, not to mention lack of Esunaga, is a bit of a drawback), plus both his USB2 and his AASB would be vastly better healing for Torment than what I currently have (Penelo/Larsa BSSBs). Vayne is a) a character that I like, b) would be excellent for Torment, and c) is an excellent dark hybrid in general (who gets a free chain even!) who should be immediately be helpful for D.Odin and possibly beyond.
