Overview

New Generations utilize linked skills to fill three different support roles: Charge Attack enabler, debuffer, and healer. Furthermore, Status 6854.pngMagical BondsFirst hit of normal attacks boosts all allies' light ATK / Second hit of normal attacks lowers a foe's light DEF / Third hit of normal attacks deals bonus light DMG (Stackable / Can't be removed)
has a unique gimmick of granting a different effect during normal attacks based on hits dealt per turn—and because they have guaranteed Triple Attacks all three effects will always activate.

Strengths

  • Guaranteed triple attacks ensures constant damage output, and guarantees all three effects from Status 6854.pngMagical BondsFirst hit of normal attacks boosts all allies' light ATK / Second hit of normal attacks lowers a foe's light DEF / Third hit of normal attacks deals bonus light DMG (Stackable / Can't be removed)
    .
  • Grants party-wide Status LightATKUpStack.pngLight ATK Up (Stackable)Light ATK is boosted (Stackable)
    through Status 6854.pngMagical BondsFirst hit of normal attacks boosts all allies' light ATK / Second hit of normal attacks lowers a foe's light DEF / Third hit of normal attacks deals bonus light DMG (Stackable / Can't be removed)
    , with a relatively low 2-turn downtime. (Its 2.5-turn duration is refreshed every turn until Magical Bonds' 3-turn duration ends, making its actual duration 5.5 turns.)
  • Inflicts 5% Status LightDEFDownStack.pngLight DEF Down (Stackable)DEF is lowered for light DMG (Stackable)
    (Max: 20%) while Status 6854.pngMagical BondsFirst hit of normal attacks boosts all allies' light ATK / Second hit of normal attacks lowers a foe's light DEF / Third hit of normal attacks deals bonus light DMG (Stackable / Can't be removed)
    is in effect, which is a rare type of DEF Down that will help reach the 50% DEF Down cap.
  • Fills three support roles depending on the linked skill used:
  • Resets linked skills' cooldown on Charge Attack, allowing them to reuse their abilities sooner.
  • Sabre and Gun proficiencies are popular picks for Atma/Ultima Weapon-based parties.

Weaknesses

  • Lower charge bar gain hinders their Charge Attack rate.
  • Due to linked skills, party can't gain multiple benefits in one turn without some form of skill cooldown reset (such as 3★ Summon s 2040158000.jpg QilinDelta Massive Dark damage to all foes. End all allies' skill cooldowns.).

How to Play

  • Immediately cast Ability m 1156 3.png Nagareboshi KisekiGain Status 6854.pngMagical BondsFirst hit of normal attacks boosts all allies' light ATK / Second hit of normal attacks lowers a foe's light DEF / Third hit of normal attacks deals bonus light DMG (Stackable / Can't be removed)

    .
    at turn 1 to gain benefits from their normal attacks. To maximize the buffs and debuffs, the skill should be casted where they would not deal Charge Attack within 3 turns after the skill activates.
    • Later, the skill can be casted intentionally even if they would deal Charge Attack during that duration, to refresh the debuff duration.

    to potentially stop foe from attacking, preferably before foe able to deal Charge Attack.
  • Cast Ability m 1155 2.png Happiness StarRestore 20% of all allies' HP (Healing cap: 1500) and remove 1 debuff. when party needs healing and debuff clearing.
  • Place them at 4th position of main ally as they can constantly generates 25% charge bar for every triple attacks, which is slower for triple attacks. With proper party setup, assuming the party can reliably do triple attacks every turn, the party can deal Full Chain for every 3 turns.

Synergy

As they constantly deal triple attacks, any form of multiattack support is not recommended. Instead, what they need are:

Classes

  • Class 410301 ax square.jpg Lumberjack: Ability Leaf Burning.png Leaf BurningGain Status 6812.pngLeaf BurningEvery turn while in effect: All allies' ATK and DEF are boosted (Stackable) / Charge bar is boosted (Can't be removed / Ends when endurance hits 0)

    and a 4000-damage shield effect.
    (Every turn during Leaf Burning: All allies gain Status AttackUpStack.png4% ATK Up (Stackable / Max: 20%)ATK is boosted while active (Stackable)

    Leaf Burning ends when shield effect ends.)
    can be exploited so they can deal Charge Attack faster to reset linked skills frequently. Together with Noa (Grand) and Jeanne d'Arc (Grand), the party can constantly deal Triple Attacks and Full Chain Charge Attack back-to-back with nearly zero maintenance.
