AssessmentExtremely powerful with the right setup, Superstar is limited primarily by weapon and character availability. A mainhand Harp is practically mandatory, and optimal use requires characters who can capitalize on Superstar's buffs while covering its lack of immediate high-impact skills (such as or ). Its subskills are worthless to other classes, however, so it should not be unlocked until it can be actively used.
- boosts ATK and DEF in addition to Healing via the Appassionato support skill, making it a sizable buff, especially in Raids as it scales based on the number of players.
- helps counteract bosses with higher debuff resistance as well as making off-element debuffs such as some summon calls more likely to land.
- provides massive damage and charge bar generation via double-attacks.
- The subskill is one of the most powerful and can only reliably be taken by Superstar.
- For battles where both Bard can be superior despite being a Row II class. and are desirable,
Overall, Superstar is an excellent choice for self-sufficient teams or battles that don't require the MC to specialize and a go-to for multiplayer content where other players can be expected to have the core tools covered.
- has niche potential, but is usually worse than or and thus not worth buying without a specific usage in mind.
- is conceivably useful if every other buff and debuff is somehow covered, but or is usually better.
