Overview

Altair is a strong support character who provides many useful buffs. However, he requires his 5★ uncap to reach maximum utility, and he lacks a niche outside of providing important buffs and debuffs. As a result, he loses value for players who aren't strong enough to get his 5★ upgrades, or who can fill his role with other characters.

Weaknesses

  • Requires his 5★ uncap to become truly useful to the party.
  • Before level 90, his DEF Down doesn't quite do enough to be useful: Ability Miserable.png Miserable MistInflict Status AttackDown.png25% ATK DownATK is lowered

    will stack, but only brings the target down to -40% DEF Down.
  • Long cooldowns on his skills make his utility for longer fights questionable, especially since he doesn't have a niche that cannot be filled by anyone else.
  • Doesn't provide much damage on his own.
