A very versatile class and worth unlocking early for most players for thesubskill.
- alone accounts for half of the 50% ATK Down cap, and can reach the cap in combination with or other skills, reducing enemy damage tremendously. The area nuke is a nice bonus, too.
- is an excellent survival and damage tool, especially combined with a charge attack, Bullseye Run, or reliable multi-attack. When combined with , it can completely negate enemy single-target attacks, including multi-hit charge attacks.
- is a respectable nuke, often useful when entering a Raid in progress or to nudge an enemy mode bar or HP trigger in a pinch.
Overall, Sidewinder is a more burst-oriented alternative to Dark Fencer, especially in Raids where the latter's skills may be ineffective or redundant.
- is not worth buying as or are likely to provide more damage and charge bar.
- Pendant farming by swapping with an R or SR character or for creative/niche setups and combos, but is rarely competitive with other subskills for normal battles. may be worth buying to improve
