Important notes[edit]

  • The value and usefulness of a character varies based on your rank, your team, fight length, fight mechanics and how you play.
  • Each element is evaluated on its own. A 9.5 rating in Fire is not the same as 9.5 in Water.
  • The rating reflects the median usefulness of a character. A character may lose points for being hard to use or fit in a team, or gain points for being strong against Magnas. Judging a character by HL usefulness alone may be unhelpful as HL teams tend to deviate from other content.
  • At the end of the day this is just a tool to help you find useful characters.

  • Support skill helps your party's debuffs land which can be crucial in stabilizing boss fights.
  • Her Mode bar cut is great where it works, but it becomes ineffective against higher-level bosses.

  • Role: Attacker
  • MASSIVE Charge Attack damage with each Status Icy Blade1.pngIcy Blade stack she gains. Extremely high cap at around 2.5~(3.5~ vs Fire) million at full stacks.
  • Squishy; requires defenders due to her low defense, but her attack power outweighs this drawback.
  • Stacking Status Icy Blade5.pngIcy Blades requires an entirely different play-style and time consuming.
  • Charge Attack damage is still very good at 3 stacks.

  • Excellent as a sub member after a main party member has been KO'd with her 100% charge bar ability.

  • Role: Attacker/Support/Debuffer
  • Allows maximum use of Enmity which Dark has good access to. It's so good it's useful for other elements.
  • Decent attack along with her stellar support.
  • Absolutely terrifying in shorter fights and even some longer fights where it's safe to stay below 4k hp.
  • Unknown race lets her benefit from any Bahamut Weapon.
  • Of limited use to beginners. Strong in the midgame and lategame with Enmity gear but her true potential requires insane gear.
