Assessment

Warlock is an alternative to Chaos Ruler, primarily for players seeking a source of
Status Blind.pngBlindedAttacks have a slight chance to miss
or who can effectively utilize Chaser.
  • Aether Blast deals more (and all-enemy) damage compared to Ability Slow.png

    , but does not apply Delay.

    and 1 random debuff on all enemies.
    's random (but potentially very powerful) debuffs. Note also that because Warlock lacks Chaos Ruler's Debuff Success level bonuses, Dark Haze is more likely to Miss.
  • Chaser can indirectly raise the normal attack damage cap and capitalize on damage bursts (such as Assassin skills) by providing the team with
    Status Bonus Damage.pngBonus DMGDeals bonus DMG for one-foe one-ally attacks
    . It is the primary reason to use Warlock over Chaos Ruler, but usually requires a team to already be operating near the damage cap, as well as considerable DA/TA to fully optimize.
  • Choke is rarely optimal for difficult content, but is excellent for accumulating honors when MVP racing by attacking multiple enemies at a time, such as in Grand Order or Luminiera Omega Impossible.
  • Aether Bane is terrible as the damage increase is not significant and Aether Blast will usually hit its damage cap regardless.

For most players, Warlock should be a lower priority than Chaos Ruler because of the importance of landing ATK/DEF Down and the value of Delay in many fights, but Warlock can be the better choice for players who can use both Chaser and Dark Haze, or for providing both a direct Blind and backup ATK/DEF Down in HL content where a Chaos Ruler is already present.
