Overview

Izmir (Summer) is a hybrid attacker/support character.

  • Provides increased raid-wide ATK via Status Blizzard.pngBlizzardATK is modified by number of turns passed
    Field effect
    .
  • Provides massive charge attack damage (and chain burst) damage via her Status Icy Blade1.pngIcy BladeBoost to charge attack DMG and charge attack DMG cap based on number of Icy Blades
    mechanic.
  • Provides Stamina ATK modifier to all allies via her "Dreams and Midsummer Nights" passive.
    • Her passive also reduces her DEF and HP, making her very fragile.

How to Play

  • Use Jotunheimr as often as possible to maintain two stacks of Status Icy Blade1.pngIcy BladeBoost to charge attack DMG and charge attack DMG cap based on number of Icy Blades
    .
  • Optionally use White Wyrm to consume an Icy Blade for free damage. Due to its low cap, this may not be worth using in racing scenarios due to the animation time (including the time to refresh Status Icy Blade1.pngIcy BladeBoost to charge attack DMG and charge attack DMG cap based on number of Icy Blades
    ), but it can be useful to push foes into HP Triggers, Overdrive, or Break.
  • Ideally use Status Blizzard.pngBlizzardATK is modified by number of turns passed
    Field effect
    on cooldown to take advantage of the Status AttackUp.pngATK UpATK is boosted
    Multiplier: ?Duration: 3 turns
    as well as maximize the field effect's uptime, but because it also increases enemy ATK, be careful of using it in high-level multiplayer content.
    • Status Blizzard.pngBlizzardATK is modified by number of turns passed
      Field effect
      is best used during windows where the enemy is disabled (via Status Paralysis.pngParalyzedCan't attack
      , Status Charm.pngCharmedAttacks are slightly limited
      , Status Blind.pngBlindedAttacks have a slight chance to miss
      , etc.), is otherwise unable to take advantage of the field effect (eg. Rose Queen's Rose form), or where the risk to the raid is outweighed by a tough DPS check (eg. Ultimate Bahamut's Resounding Realm stage).
    • Keep the Field Effect's ATK fluctuations in mind (eg. avoid letting the enemy Charge Attack during the 100% peak; use your own burst during the safest peak) but be careful not to lose too much uptime waiting.
  • Attempt to have Izmir charge attack with at least one other character whenever possible, as her increased charge attack damage and cap can make for powerful chain-bursts even with only two characters.

Synergy

  • Izmir's major weakness is her low DEF and HP, so anything that mitigates this works well with her.
  • Izmir has excellent synergy with Varuna grids and teams because they already utilize Stamina via Fimbul square.jpg Fimbul and already prioritize maintaining large HP pools, automatically accommodating Izmir's needs. Varuna grids also generally provide more multi-attack than Magna or Elemental grids, which Izmir lacks in her kit.
  • Due to her overwhelmingly powerful charge attacks, most forms of uplift or multi-attack work very well with her.

Gamewith's recommended EMP build for Izmir (Summer).

Priorities

Due to Izmir's Support Skill boosting the attack of her allies when her HP is high, it is important to reduce the damage she takes. Prioritise DEF (★1×2, although continuing to ★2 or ★3 is OK, too) first to cancel out her Support Skill's penalty, followed by Critical (★3×2). CA DMG (★3) and CA DMG Cap (★1×2) are good options due to her large Charge Attacks. HP is also an option to further improve her survivability.
