Overview

Agielba is a Defense character that focuses on taking hits for the party due to both his active and passive skills, and mitigating them with his high defenses and his ability to heal himself. As such, his key role is to protect his party from potentially lethal attacks. He is also capable of defending and attacking at the same time. By taking damage, he can enhance his damage output and retaliate with counter attacks, while using his charge attack can boost his defenses significantly to the point where he can take negligible damage.

Strengths

  • High defense and base HP make him difficult to kill
  • Can survive potentially lethal damage, albeit only once
  • Skills and charge attack are highly synergistic with each other
  • Redirects some attacks away from allies due to his FortitudeGain Status Substitute.pngSubstituteReceives foe attack in place of an ally

Weaknesses

  • Only good in tanking and lacks team-wide utility that improve the party's effectiveness
  • No team-wide defensive skills to prevent hard hitting all-ally attacks
  • Has increased reliance on getting hit and lowers his importance in raids that are constantly afflicted by statuses that prevent them from attacking

How to Play

As a defense character, Agielba functions to take potentially lethal attacks away from the other party members, and does so by timing his skills and, if needed, charge attacks.

Agielba works well against foes with lots of single-target or multi-hit attacks. He is well-suited in fights where enemies can hit him, as to be able to counter attack and make use of his Status Jammed.pngJammedATK is greatly boosted based on how low HP is
buff to full effect.

He is not recommended in fights where foes only or mostly does party-wide attacks, as Status Substitute.pngSubstituteReceives foe attack in place of an ally
(Excludes all-foe all-ally attacks)
is rendered moot. He is also not recommended in fights where enemies are constantly afflicted by statuses such as Status Paralysis.pngParalyzedCan't attack
, as this prevents him from taking damage to make full use of his Status Jammed.pngJammedATK is greatly boosted based on how low HP is
and counter attacks. Although Agielba puts decent damage regardless, a stronger attacker or a better offensive support character may work better in such fights.

Party Position

As a frontliner, Agielba can work well in any position in the party but has lower priority in the second and third positions. With his FortitudeGain Status Substitute.pngSubstituteReceives foe attack in place of an ally

. These tools allow him to contribute to the party's chain bursts. However, as he does not grant any party-wide buffs on charge attacks, he can easily be replaced by characters, such as Npc s 3040180000 01.jpg Tsubasa or Npc s 3040202000 01.jpg Athena, who can provide those buffs. Conversely, he can fill these positions if using a character with a low charge bar gain, such as Npc s 3040221000 01.jpg Kallen Kouzuki or Npc s 3040196000 01.jpg Shiva, or characters who uses charge bar for their skills, such as Npc s 3040130000 01.jpg Grea or Npc s 3040083000 01.jpg Aliza, who may prefer the fourth position.

Because Agielba's 1st and 3rd skills and his charge attack are also used for tanking, Agielba already deals damage simply by performing his primary function as a tank. However, this also means that he cannot always use them freely, especially when up against enemies with attacks that needs mitigating.

Notable Debuff Interactions

In general, all debuffs should be cleared whenever possible. However, there are certain debuffs that could affect Agielba more or less compared to other characters.

  • Status SkillSeal.pngSkill SealedCan't use skills
    is particularly crippling to Agielba as he requires his skills to perform well.
  • Status CASeal.pngC.A. SealedCan't use charge attack
    prevents him using his charge attack and mitigate attacks using his Status Armored.pngArmoredChance of lowering DMG taken
    buff.
  • Statuses that can negatively affect charge bar have different implications for Agielba:
    • Status Shorted.pngShortedCharge bar is frozen

Gamewith's recommended EMP build for Agielba.

Priorities

Prioritise DEF and HP first due to his increased Hostility. After that, take Critical and his Extended Mastery Support Skill.

The EMP set makes use of the high HP to take advantage of the Status Jammed.pngJammedATK is greatly boosted based on how low HP is
status and Enmity-based grids, as a higher max HP makes it more difficult for Status Drain.pngDrainNormal attack and C.A. DMG dealt is partially absorbed to HP
to heal Agielba back to full health. This build also synergizes well with weapons with HP skills, such as Scimitar of Brahman square.jpg Scimitar of Brahman. Criticals make it recommended for on-element content (fighting against Wind opponents).

Priorities

Prioritize Criticals, one node at a time, followed by health. If using against non-wind opponents, hold off Criticals until later. Take one star on each Defense node if necessesary. Due to Agielba's Defense from his passive skills, abilities and charge attack, it has a lower priority, but should not be ignored completely. Finally, take Extended Mastery Support Skill. If there are points left, such as using a Perpetuity Ring square.jpg Perpetuity Ring, either take some points to Wind DMG Lowered, max out Defense, or combine both.

Over Mastery Bonus

Most over mastery bonuses work well with Agielba. Take note of some bonuses, however:

  • Icon Bonus Debuff Success.png Debuff Success is largely useless on Agielba due to his lack of debuffs.
  • Icon Bonus Defense.png Dodge can increase Agielba's tankiness, but also risks reducing his chances of getting hit. This can prevent him from doing a counter attack from his first skill and Extended Mastery Support Skill, and reduce the effectiveness of his second skill.
  • Icon Bonus Healing.png Healing also increases the healing cap of Kagutsuchi's Status Drain.pngDrainNormal attack and C.A. DMG dealt is partially absorbed to HP
    .
