I would like to share additional info on this. Because this armor has different set of moves, optional missions that require moves from the first armor can't be completed using this armor. What I mean is that if the optional mission requires War Machine to use Blade Punch 3 times, Plasma Blade won't count as Blade Punch, so you have to return to the old armor to finish this.
I have 52 CP to get this armor, but I am conflicted. Should I get it or should I wait and save till I hit 90 and get another character? *Note I am in need of another character in order to hit chapter 12 but I am afraid I won't be able to farm quick enough. Thoughts?
If you've already cleared 5 stars in every chapter already, prioritize character. If not, prioritize the armor. The reason is because clearing 5 stars per mission in every chapter grants 1 gold (4 stars) and 5 CPs (5 stars), therefore prioritize the armor as it has its own unique set of moves. If you already cleared all missions in every chapter already, you'll have a hard chance in acquiring CPs, therefore prioritize characters as they cost more CPs to acquire.
