Overview[edit | edit source]

Alanaan is the Evoker linked with The Sun. He is one of the strongest characters fire has to offer due to the buffs he can provide to the party -- both offensively and defensively. Not only buffs, he also provides strong and highly accurate debuffs that are all contribute to damage and survival.

Strengths[edit | edit source]

Weaknesses[edit | edit source]

  • Status Sun-Touched Paradise.pngSun-Touched ParadiseCan deal critical hits regardless of element / ATK is boosted / DEF is lowered
    Field effect
    Local status effect
    also allows any foe to deal critical hits against you.
    • It also reduces your team's defense and increases the foe's attack, potentially making survival hard.

How to Play[edit | edit source]

There are 2 main ways to use Alanaan: Bursting and Survival.

Bursting[edit | edit source]

Bursting would be Alanaan's main characteristic with his ability to immensely boost the party's damage output with all 3 of his skills.

This is especially powerful for fire where you have easy access to both Summon s 2040244000.jpg The Sun and Summon s 2040185000.jpg Shiva

Survival[edit | edit source]

Alanaan also offers various means for survival, ranging from damage reduction to HP recovery.

  • By activating Icon Support Skill.png The Hierophant UprightWhen Switching to Main Ally: Fire allies gain Status Blessed Radiance.pngBlessed RadianceDEF is boosted / Damage dealt by one-foe attacks is partially absorbed to HP (Can't be removed)
    Strength: 50% DEF Up / 25% of DMG dealt (Healing cap: 800)Duration: Indefinite
    . (Can't be reactivated.)
    , the team would get a permanent 50% DEF Up Buff and a 800 HP drain.
    • The DEF Up portion is roughly equivalent to a Status Dmg Cut 30.png30% DMG CutTaking 30% less DMG
      Damage Cut reducing damage taken for all elements.
      Warning! Does not work for Plain Damage!
      .
  • Ability Sun-Touched Paradise.png Sun-Touched ParadiseBathe the battlefield in the blazing heat of the sun.
    (Deploy the Status Sun-Touched Paradise.pngSun-Touched ParadiseCan deal critical hits regardless of element / ATK is boosted / DEF is lowered
    Strength: 20% ATK Up / 25% DEF DownMultiplier: UniqueDuration: 8 turnsField effect

    field effect.)
    gives the party a 25% Boost to healing, which also affects the drain of Status Blessed Radiance.pngBlessed RadianceDEF is boosted / Damage dealt by one-foe attacks is partially absorbed to HP (Can't be removed)
    and other healing skills.
    • While it may seem counter-intuitive, Status Sun-Touched Paradise.pngSun-Touched ParadiseCan deal critical hits regardless of element / ATK is boosted / DEF is lowered
      Field effect
      Local status effect
      helps in survival IF used with Status Blessed Radiance.pngBlessed RadianceDEF is boosted / Damage dealt by one-foe attacks is partially absorbed to HP (Can't be removed)
      since even with the DEF down from Status Sun-Touched Paradise.pngSun-Touched ParadiseCan deal critical hits regardless of element / ATK is boosted / DEF is lowered
      Field effect
      Local status effect
      , you would still have a net DEF Up of 25%. Even factoring in the 20% ATK increase towards the enemies it will still be less damage than normal.
  • He can also apply Status Petrified 4.pngPetrifiedStops enemy's charge diamonds from filling.
    Local status effect
    and Status ATK Down 4.png25% ATK DownATK is lowered
    Strength: 25%Local status effect
    in order to reduce the damage taken by the party.

Backline-Support[edit | edit source]

While this would also fit under Survival, it is worth noting that his Icon Support Skill.png The Sun ReversedWhen Sub Ally: 20% boost to Fire allies' healing specsHealing and healing cap.
Remove 1 debuff from a Fire ally when that ally takes turn-based damage.
provides means of survival even from the backline. And when he does come out to the front line, he will provide Status Blessed Radiance.pngBlessed RadianceDEF is boosted / Damage dealt by one-foe attacks is partially absorbed to HP (Can't be removed)
as stated in the Survival section.

Synergy[edit | edit source]

Staff Teams[edit | edit source]


Alanaan is one of the strongest staff-proficiency fire characters and will work well with the other staff-proficiency characters with the use of Hollowsky Staff, Atma Staff, or Ultima Staff.

Survival[edit | edit source]

Weapons[edit | edit source]


Alanaan can either greatly reduce the damage taken by the party in order to maintain Stamina, but he can also help in letting the party take more damage to dip into Enmity with the use of Status Sun-Touched Paradise.pngSun-Touched ParadiseCan deal critical hits regardless of element / ATK is boosted / DEF is lowered
Field effect
Local status effect
and Status Immaculate Sunlight.pngImmaculate SunlightHP is lowered on every turn (Can't be removed)
. These make him versatile enough to be able to function well with both stamina and enmity setups of fire. The weapons for such setups are Ixaba, Crimson Finger, Ecke Sachs, and Ancient Ecke Sachs.

also allows the party to deal critical hits regardless of element, this especially improves the usability of Ancient Ecke Sachs, Ecke Sachs, and Benedia outside wind and null element fights.
Outside of damage boosts, Fire of Prometheus and Zhuque Lyrewings deserve special mention to their ability to trigger the debuff removal of Alanaan's Icon Support Skill.png The Sun ReversedWhen Sub Ally: 20% boost to Fire allies' healing specsHealing and healing cap.
