  • Role: Attacker
  • High damage output with his damage skills and strong self-buffs.
  • Increased DEF at low HP allows him to survive in Enmity teams.
  • Reliance on external multiattack sources and poor Ultima synergy leaves him outclassed by other Dark attackers.

Overview

Vaseraga is a very powerful damage dealer and off-tank. True to his character, he hits hard while he shakes off damage.

Strengths

  • Very high damage potential thanks to his auto-skill casts and innate enmity activation.
  • Extremely tanky unit that literally cannot die for 20 turns in most situations.
  • Draws attacks away from party thanks to his 5 turn hostility up, especially nifty when you aim to keep your allies at low hp to activate enmity but require external support to keep them from being hit to death.

Weaknesses

  • A lack of innate multi-attack means he will suffer from only being able to single attack most of the time, while this is offset partially by his ability to consistently dish out damage with Aubade Grynoth and Instinction, he may feel sluggish. Nevertheless, consistently taking damage alongside Great Scythe Grynoth's occasional Charge Bar fill can help fill his bar as well.
  • His value diminishes after 20 turns, however he can still take hits even at low health thanks to his buffs.
  • Axe characters are very few and far between among Dark characters. Before access to Hollowsky Axe, mid-game players may find his lack of synergy with other units when choosing an Atma/Ultima weapon to be problematic.

How to Play

Cast Forgotten Tales whenever you can and let him rip, not much else is required to support him as he is a very self sufficient character, good for players with developing grids as well as end game players who need a juggernaut to push past triggers.

Prior to his 5★ he is still able to take hits and deal immense skill damage, but his true potential lies behind his 5★ uncap. Ability m 1086 1.png Great Scythe Grynoth400% Dark damage to all foes (Damage cap: ~450,000).

Icon Support Skill.png Grynoth's PactBoost to Vaseraga's DEF based on how low HP is. is essential to his playstyle by giving him more defense the lower HP he has, and Icon Support Skill.png Feel No PainVaseraga won't be knocked out for the first 20 turns.

allows him to become an unkillable juggernaut for 20 turns. Keep in mind, some raids may have field effects that kill units who are at a certain HP threshold which will kill Vaseraga even with Feel No Pain. All this combined contributes to one of Dark's most accessible damage dealers while also being able to draw hits away from the team, making him a very respectable party slot in enmity based Dark teams.

Synergy

Characters

  • Npc s 3040265000 01.jpg Rei helps immensely to offset Vaseraga's low multi attack by giving him guaranteed Triple Attack through Status 6801.pngMokshaATK, triple attack rate, DMG cap, and dodge rate are boosted / DEF is lowered (Can't be removed)
    , while also further boosting his damage thanks to her unique buffs. Because of his high defense, the defense penalty is very negligible.
  • Npc s 3040080000 01.jpg Jeanne d'Arc (Dark), Npc s 3040222000 01.jpg Kolulu, Npc s 3040070000 01.jpg Beatrix are all characters that benefit from lower HP due to their enmity based kits, Vaseraga can help ensure they can continue to hit hard and not die to stray attacks.
  • Npc s 3040278000 01.jpg Predator (SSR) is a glass cannon that will greatly benefit from Vaseraga's ability to draw attacks, both characters also benefit from shared synergy in Hollowsky Axe.

Weapons

  • Celeste Claw Omega square.jpg Celeste Claw Omega grids will contribute to Vaseraga's enmity playstyle, for Summon s 2040090000.jpg Hades grids consider stocking up on Weapon s 1040200700.jpg Gisla or Weapon s 1040212900.jpg Vagabond copies, the latter will help boost his skill damage even further thanks to the skill cap boost.

Priorities

Prioritise emnity first, followed by Critical, followed by support skill, then Light reduction. DA is a good choice after this. DEF is another good choice.
