Damage Cut

From Granblue Fantasy Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Damage Cut is a term that refers to any buff that specifically reduces damage by a fixed percentage. It is based on the English translation for Holy Saber's Phalanx skill, which reads "70% DMG cut to all parties."

Damage Cuts are calculated separately from other damage reduction effects, most notably defense. The main significance of damage cuts is that the different types are additive, meaning you can achieve a 100% damage cut, reducing all damage (except plain damage) received to zero. This is extremely important in many raids, such as Proto Bahamut and Grand Order, where certain triggered attacks can deal damage in the millions.

provides the baseline, a 70% damage cut against all damage for 1 turn. Many characters also have similar abilities, typically these abilities will not stack with Phalanx or each other. In raids, there will usually be at least one Holy Saber who uses Phalanx with the correct timing, so you just need to provide another source of damage cut in order to achieve invulnerability.

Summon call damage cut effects[edit]

Damage cut effects from summon calls will stack with other sources, but not other summon calls, so you can use these to reach 100% damage cut. Note that they do count as the same buff type.

2040021000.jpg
Athena (Summon) is the most popular option, being a summon stone that can be brought on any team and providing the perfect 30% to complement Holy Saber's Phalanx. In raids, players without Athena can also combo-summon to get the effect.

Summon m 2040205000.jpg
Godsworn Alexiel provides a one-time-use 70% damage cut (100% when fully uncapped).

Weapon charge attack damage cut effects[edit]

Damage cut effects from weapon charge attacks will stack with other sources, so you can use these to reach 100% damage cut. Note that they do count as the same buff type.

Seven-Star Sword Sterling icon.jpg
The Seven-Star Sword, once awoken, has a Charge Attack that also provides a 30% damage cut. However, it's generally difficult to always have your charge bar ready to use when necessary, unless you are using Berserker, Weapon Master, or maybe Seofon, so the Seven-Star Sword is not generally considered a useful application of damage cut.

Weapon m 1040004600.jpg
Murgleis, when final uncapped, can obtain the same result as the Seven-Star Sword with a 35% damage cut on Charge Attack, albeit with the same timing issues. Obtaining a 4★ Murgleis is much more difficult than a Seven-Star Sword, often requiring Damascus Ingot square.jpg Damascus Ingot usage, but can be well worth it as Murgleis is already considered an excellent Sword Master mainhand and powerful addition to Summon s 2040100000.jpg Varuna grids.

Elemental Damage Cut[edit]

Skills and summons that grant Status Fire Cut 50.pngStatus Water Cut 50.pngStatus Earth Cut 50.pngStatus Wind Cut 50.pngStatus Light Cut 50.pngStatus Dark Cut 50.png Element Damage Cuts are also considered damage cuts, so they are commonly used to heavily dampen incoming damage of a specific element. Because these are completely different buffs from typical damage cut buffs, they stack with other types of damage cuts.

The most commonly-used sources of elemental damage cuts are the 6 carbuncles, Summon s 2030031000.jpg Garnet Carbuncle, Summon s 2030021000.jpg Aquamarine Carbuncle, Summon s 2030024000.jpg Zircon Carbuncle, Summon s 2030016000.jpg Peridot Carbuncle, Summon s 2030042000.jpg Opal Carbuncle, and Summon s 2030039000.jpg Onyx Carbuncle. By themselves, they provide 25% resistance to their own element, but they can easily be fully uncapped using Moonlight Stone square.jpg Moonlight Stone from the casino, which boosts their resistance up to 50%. However, be warned that you will only get 25% with a combo-summon in a raid when another player calls a carbuncle.

The "SSR Carbuncles" (Summon s 2040125000.jpg Prometheus, Summon s 2040160000.jpg Ca Ong, Summon s 2040130000.jpg Gilgamesh, Summon s 2040122000.jpg Morrigna (Summon), Summon s 2040144000.jpg Hector and Summon s 2040134000.jpg Anubis) provide higher damage reduction than SR carbuncles (30%, then 50% and finally 60% when fully uncapped), however they are significantly less common than SR carbuncles.

There are a few other summon calls that grant elemental damage cuts, such as Summon s 2040042000.jpg Nezha and Summon s 2040063000.jpg Twin Elements, however typically these do not provide enough resistance to combine with Phalanx for a full cut. One notable exception being Summon s 2040234000.jpg Kero-chan which provides a 30% dark cut when fully uncapped, and can be useful for surviving things like Proto Bahamut's Skyfall.

Some weapons, such as Weapon s 1040400900.jpg Ice Crystal Staff, and some characters, such as Jeanne d'Arc (Dark), can grant elemental damage cuts to the party through their charge attacks.

Some characters have skills that grant elemental damage cuts to the party as well.

buff is, again, a completely different buff, so it stacks with other sources of damage cut. It works the same as normal damage cuts, except that the amount of damage prevented is dealt back to the source of damage instead of being nullified, with the damage cap of 99,999. While many characters have Repel buffs for a single target or support skills, only those below have party-wide Repel buffs.
