Gamewith's recommended EMP build for Melissabelle.

Priorities[edit]

Prioritise Skill DMG Cap first as Melissabelle has many damaging abilities. After that, take Light ATK and C.A. DMG to increase her strength as an attacker. Because she has excellent self-healing, adding points into Hostility is an option for remaining points. A point into each DEF node is also an excellent option for surviving the effects of her Substitute.

At three stars Melissabelle's EMP provides a full 100% debuff resist on Substitute. If you don't have access to Veil from another source, this can help avoid her being affected by status effects when she guards the team.
