as a subskill—but is often overshadowed by the more universally effective Holy Saber and Bishop outside of highly organized multiplayer content.

Valkyrie's main limitation is the situational nature of Ability Lead.png Drive It In II300% elemental damage to one enemy.

as their subskill. Valkyrie has better damage potential, however, making it better if Holy Saber or Bishop's utility is covered by other party members.

For newer players, a point of consideration for unlocking priority is the increased EXP required to the level Lancer classes. Furthermore, the class is not a prerequisite for any other class besides its Row IV upgrade, Class 190301 sp icon.pngApsaras, lowering the immediate value of the CP investment. While the class's high-level multiplayer value is immense, one will likely have unlocked all Row III classes before it can be capitalized upon.

Skill Evaluation

    Spear: Inflict Status Lock.pngBreak Boosted (Time)Break mode time is extended
    on one enemy in Break.
    Axe: Inflict Mode Bar CutCut to foe's mode bar
    to one enemy in Overdrive.
    : Break-extension and mode bar cut maybe valuable in organized or high-level multiplayer content, but less consistently useful than offerings of other classes. Its damage is average, but synergizes with Ability Killstreak.png Resonating SurgeElemental damage to one enemy and gain Status SkillUp.png Skill DMG Up (Stackable)Skill DMG is boosted

    : Guaranteed triple attacks for 1 turn, while limited to the Main Character, is useful for securing the MC a charge bar lead and valuable enough to some classes (notably Class 240201 gu icon.pngGunslinger) justify it as a subskill even without the Spear or Axe effects.
    • Spear: Raid-wide Status DoubleUp.pngDA UpDouble attack rate is boosted

      is amazing and the main draw of the class for early/mid-game content.
    • Axe: Enemy Status DoubleDown.pngDA DownDouble attack rate is lowered
      and Status TripleDown.pngTA DownTriple attack rate is lowered
      may be useful in tough raids against bosses with frequent multiattacks, but often less useful than traditional buffs and debuffs (including Spear's version) in general content. The 1 turn guaranteed triple-attack is an excellent bonus,
