Excellent for all the same reasons as Dark Fencer, with the added flexibility to omit Gravity and the chance to secure both solo and multiplayer battles when Unpredictable lands its unique Paralysis or Petrify.
- Unpredictable is a direct upgrade to Miserable Mist and the primary reason to play Chaos Ruler, reliably providing -25% ATK and DEF Down in addition to 1 other random debuff. Most notable are the random Paralysis and Petrify, which do not increase boss resistance to the normal versions of those debuffs, making them safe to apply at any time regardless of raid debuff coordination. The random debuffs provided are:
- + (Common)
- Blind) (Common; stronger than Wizard-line
- (Rare; strongest charm in the game)
- (Very Rare)
- (Very Rare)
- Uprising is good for boosting an ally's charge bar generation to increase the frequency of powerful charge attacks, such as Katalina (Grand)'s or the MC with Four-Sky Blade, but is often overshadowed by more standard subskills and never necessary due to Unpredictable fulfilling the EM skill requirement
- Chaos reduces the debuff resistance of all parties and foes while also increasing foe special attack DMG. Outside of very coordinated use to land certain status effects, it is likely to do more harm than good and usually not worth using. The Chaos Field lasts 180 seconds and amplifies over time, having a 10/20/30% effect at 0/60/120 seconds
Overall, Chaos Ruler further improves one of the strongest Row III classes, Dark Fencer, enough to be a worthwhile for players looking to optimize the Dark Fencer's kit for high-level content or expand its options for solo play.
