Overview

Grimnir (Valentine) is capable of dealing high amounts of damage as well as increasing his and his party's damage output.

Strengths

  • His guaranteed triple attack effectively makes multi attack rate debuffs have no effect on him.
  • Has a lot of damage instances both in his auto attacks and his skill casts making him synergize very well with Status DmgUp.pngSupplemental DMGDMG dealt is supplemented
    .
  • Capable of increasing his and his party's offensive damage output.
  • One-turn cooldown on all of his skills, which makes him a good skill-based damage dealer.
  • Is capable of massive amounts of damage as well as debuffing foes that decrease the overall damage output of the enemy. The amount of damage it can deal can compensate the lack of damage on his charge attack.

Weaknesses

  • Is not able to deal any damage through his charge attack.
  • Outside of Status Keen.pngKeenSupplemental DMG to critical hits

    , he lacks any other self-buffs that can utilize his multiple damage instances.
  • Lower charge bar gain means he won't be using his charge attack that often. However, his guaranteed triple attack often compensates for it.
  • Ability m 1118 5.png Holy Rays of PurgationWhen the binds on my right arm are undone... The heavens will tremble! The earth will quake! Myriad evils shall be brought to righteous end!

Weapon Synergy

Given the fact that his skillset leans towards the ability to deal critical hits, he works well with critical-based builds, such as Last Storm Harp square.jpg Last Storm Harp.

One type of weapon we will greatly benefit, however, is any weapon that gives him any type of Status DmgUp.pngSupplemental DMGDMG dealt is supplemented
