Overview[edit]

Has similar strengths and weaknesses as her SSR version, just at an SR level. She is a defensive character that can absorb enemy hits for your other Earth characters, but cannot provide significant damage output on her own. If you don't have any better defensive Earth characters, however, she is a strong candidate.

Strengths[edit]

  • Splish SplashGain Status Splash Fight 0.pngSplash FightAbsorbs water attacks and cuts DMG (Taking water attack DMG increases effect lvl)
    , absorbing Water damage and cuts damage taken. Taking Water damage increases Splash Fight stacks (Max: 10).
    On recast: Earth and Water damage to a foe based on number of Splash Fight stacks. Consumes all stacks.
    At level 45:
    Effect enhanced.
    makes Sara more defensive as she takes more hits, at the cost of her ATK and multiattack rate. It will also heal her twice (500 HP first, 1000 HP second) when she gets on low HP. Recasting it with maximum stacks can also provide decent Earth and Water damage.

    provides Hostility Up, drawing fire away from other party members and increasing her chances of getting hit for Splish Splash's effect.
  • Bene LitusAll allies gain Status Dmg Cut 40.png40% DMG CutTaking 40% less DMG

    .
    grants a 40% damage cut to the whole party, which can be stacked with the appropriate fully-uncapped Carbuncle for a 90% damage cut.

Weaknesses[edit]

  • The Hostility Up from Sandcastle FunInflict Status AttackDown.pngATK DownATK is lowered
    Duration: 180 seconds
    on a foe. Gain Status AggroUpArrow.pngHostility UpMore likely to be attacked

    .
    At level 65:
    Effect enhanced.
    is rather weak and requires spending on EMP nodes to boost its effectiveness.
  • Splish Splash requires Sara to get hit; because of her weak Hostility Up, getting up to 10 stacks may prove difficult.
  • Though her EMP support skill can convert non-Water damage to Water damage, converted damage still will not count towards Splish Splash stacks. This reduces her off-element effectiveness for new players that may want her party damage cut on a weaker team.

How to Play[edit]

Sara's kit is rather simple; at the start of battle, use her first two skills and try to ramp up as many Splish Splash stacks as possible. When the enemy is about to use a powerful Charge Attack, use Bene Litus to reduce the damage the party takes. If you're lucky enough to get 10 Splish Splash stacks, recast it to deal damage to the enemy.

Synergy[edit]

    lowers his own Hostility while boosting the target's; its effect is stronger than Sara's Hostility Up from Sandcastle Fun.

Weapons[edit]

  • Baihu Fangstaff: When Sara is placed in 3rd position, this weapon boosts her Charge Attack damage and her Hostility, increasing her chances of getting hit and letting her deal a bit more damage.
