Overview

Danua is an attacker-debuffer who has, unusually for Light characters, Enmity synergy. She has great damage potential through a combination of Status Blood Sacrifice.pngBlood SacrificeAttacks twice each turn / HP is lowered every turn / Can't restore HP (Can't be removed / Effect duration extends upon being targeted by another light ally's buff or healing skill)
Duration: 2 turns
, which lets her attack twice per turn, and her party-wide multiattack buffs.

Strengths

    faster, while Notlage prevents her from getting killed by Blood Sacrifice.

Weaknesses

  • Relies on party members to provide her buffs so she can extend Status Blood Sacrifice.pngBlood SacrificeAttacks twice each turn / HP is lowered every turn / Can't restore HP (Can't be removed / Effect duration extends upon being targeted by another light ally's buff or healing skill)
    Duration: 2 turns
    's duration.
  • Enmity-based (prefers being at low HP) in an element known for revolving around Stamina (prefers being at high HP).
  • Unusual weapon proficiencies (Dagger/Axe) make her hard to fit into Atma/Ultima parties to further boost her multiattack rate.
    • Issue is somewhat mitigated by Weapon s 1040310300.jpg Hollowsky Axe, but even then, there are relatively few Axe- or Melee-proficient characters in Light, with over half the SSRs having limited availability. (See list)
  • Fares poorly in many High Level raids, which have counters for her playstyle:
    • Self-damage leaves her particularly vulnerable to Plain Damage special attacks. (Used by Celeste HL, Avatar (Raid), DAO HL, and Proto Bahamut HL.)
    • Immunity to Status Petrified 1.pngPetrifiedStops enemy's charge diamonds from filling.
      Local status effect
      (Celeste in Fog Phase, Avatar, Anubis (Raid)) lowers her utility and lowers her DATA buff's strength.
    • Status SkillSeal.pngSkill SealedCan't use skills
      prevents allies from buffing Danua and extending Status Blood Sacrifice.pngBlood SacrificeAttacks twice each turn / HP is lowered every turn / Can't restore HP (Can't be removed / Effect duration extends upon being targeted by another light ally's buff or healing skill)
      's duration. (Used by Celeste, Anubis, PBHL.)

How to Play

  • Always use Ability m 1078 3.png Twin ReaperGain Status Blood Sacrifice.pngBlood SacrificeAttacks twice each turn / HP is lowered every turn / Can't restore HP (Can't be removed / Effect duration extends upon being targeted by another light ally's buff or healing skill)

    can be used whenever they're available.
  • Because Blood Sacrifice gives her two rounds of attacks per turn, she is best placed in either second or third position (depending on her multiattack rate). Her accelerated charge bar gain and C.A. rate will help fill other party members' charge bars.

    greatly helps with maintaining Blood Sacrifice. Its Status TripleUp.pngGuaranteed TAGuaranteed triple attack regardless of Triple Attack Lowered debuffs
    will affect both of Danua's attacks, leading to 6 attacks (2 triple attacks) in one turn and filling up her charge bar by 74%.
  • Npc s 3040275000 01.jpg New Generations: New Generations have 3 skills that can maintain Blood Sacrifice, though two are Linked Skills and cannot be used on the same turn.

      and Status Uplift.png20% Charge Bar Gain UpCharge bar gain is boosted
      Strength: 20%
      , which helps with charge bar generation—which is significant when New Generations reset their linked skills' cooldown on Charge Attack, but also have innately lower charge bar gain to balance it out. Danua's faster C.A. rate thanks to Blood Sacrifice will help speed up New Generations' charge bar generation, in turn allowing them to maintain Blood Sacrifice more efficiently.
    • Ability m 1155 2.png Happiness StarRestore 20% of all allies' HP (Healing cap: 1500) and remove 1 debuff.'s healing effect won't affect Danua while Blood Sacrifice is active, but it will still remove a debuff from her. When Blood Sacrifice is on downtime, this can help replenish some HP she lost.

Gamewith's recommended EMP build for Danua (SSR).

Priorities

Top priorities are Enmity, as she easily loses HP thanks to Ability m 1078 3.png Twin ReaperGain Status Blood Sacrifice.pngBlood SacrificeAttacks twice each turn / HP is lowered every turn / Can't restore HP (Can't be removed / Effect duration extends upon being targeted by another light ally's buff or healing skill)
Duration: 2 turns
.
(Extends effect duration by 1 turn upon being targeted by a Light ally's healing skill or buff skill.)
, and Critical to boost her damage. Taking 1★ in each ATK node will improve her damage, while 2★ in DA and TA will boost her multiattack rate.

Leave some points free in case she has a good EMP skill. You can fill in some stars in DEF due to her HP loss.
