Overview

Golden Knight is a versatile character with a lot of utility built into her kit. Unlike other Facsimile users, she can copy her own skills which alleviates the problems of having to build a team around her copycat skill. She will be charge attacking often, which also serves to cut her skill cooldowns, allowing her to dispel and delay more. Her buffs are undispellable and can also be extended, making her a strong, consistent attacker.

  • Ability m 1272 3.png Sword in FluxReplicate caster's or an ally's skill.
    (Gains a buff based on the type of skill replicated.)
    suffers from the same limitations as other Facsimile skills:
    • Many strong skills cannot be copied.
    • Some skills are built around that character's passive abilities, which Golden Knight would lack.
    • Skills that specifically target another character will simply target the same character again.
    • Teamwide buffs and debuff-inflicting skills are often not worth copying again in the same turn.
  • In Full Auto, she uses Ability m 1272 3.png Sword in FluxReplicate caster's or an ally's skill.
    (Gains a buff based on the type of skill replicated.)
    first, so you must account for that.

How to Play

Golden Knight is fairly straightforward to use, but also depends on the rest of the team and the enemy to determine how best to utilize her skills.

  • Use Ability m 1270 1.png Great Horizon500% Earth damage to all foes (Damage cap: ~800,000) and remove 1 buff.
    Extend caster's buff durations by 1 turn. (Excludes 1-turn buffs.)
    whenever you want to dispel an enemy's buff or extend her own buffs.
  • Use Ability m 1271 4.png Helio DrainInflict Status Gravity.pngDelay (Special)Reduce a foe's charge diamonds by 1
    Base Accuracy: 150%Ignores foe's Delay immunity
    on all foes. If successful, gain Status Uplift.pngCharged +25%Instantly boosts Charge Bar by 25%
    Strength: 25%Unaffected by charge bar gain effects
    .
    whenever you want to delay a foe.
  • Use Ability m 1272 3.png Sword in FluxReplicate caster's or an ally's skill.
    (Gains a buff based on the type of skill replicated.)
    after one of the above skills to double up on its effects, or after an ally's skill to copy it.
    • If you are looking for a particular buff, be mindful of the color of the skill you are copying.
  • Whenever she is ready to use Skill charge attack.png Starless Twilight Slash450%Massive Earth damage to a foe.
    1-turn cut to Golden Knight's skill cooldowns.
    , make sure her skills are on cooldown to make the most of the 1-turn cooldown cut.
    • Make sure she has 15 buffs if you want her to charge attack twice using Icon Support Skill.png Sword of TwilightBoost to C.A. DMG and C.A. DMG cap based on number of buffs.
      (When Golden Knight has 15 or more buffs before attacking: Charge attack activates twice.)
