Gamewith's recommended EMP build for Shion.

Priorities

First, take 3★ Skill DMG Cap to increase her skill nuke potential. After that, take two 3★ C.A. DMG and additionally 3★ C.A. DMG Cap to increase her charge attack strength. Complete her EMP build by taking two 3★ Critical Hit.

Since all of her EMP star is used, you need to reallocate points once her EMP Support Skill is implemented. If the EMP Support Skill is good, consider removing one 3★ Critical Hit.
