Important notes[edit]

  • The value and usefulness of a character varies based on your rank, your team, fight length, fight mechanics and how you play.
  • Each element is evaluated on its own. A 9.5 rating in Fire is not the same as 9.5 in Water.
  • The rating reflects the median usefulness of a character. A character may lose points for being hard to use or fit in a team, or gain points for being strong against Magnas. Judging a character by HL usefulness alone may be unhelpful as HL teams tend to deviate from other content.
  • At the end of the day this is just a tool to help you find useful characters.

  • Role: Defender/Attacker/Debuffer
  • Solid defensive character; party Status DefenseUp.pngDamage Cut is potent with a fairly short cooldown.
  • Can provide Status DefenseDown.pngDefense DOWN debuffing, but with average accuracy.
  • Dealing damage not her strong point; competes for a party spot against other more effective Water attackers.
  • A good early-game character for Water teams.

  • Role: Support/Debuffer
  • Has a good array of utility such as Status Gravity.pngDelay and dispel.
  • Unreliable debuffer; can randomly inflict
    Status Blind.pngBlindedAttacks have a slight chance to miss
    ,
    Status Charm.pngCharmAttacks are slightly limited
    , or Status Paralysis.pngParalyze after a long set-up time.
  • Dependent on his unique self-buffs for dealing damage.
  • Overall, a decent debuffer if his debuffs land, but overshadowed by other characters with reliable kits and better damage.

  • Role: Buffer/Debuffer/Attacker
  • The only water SSR whose weapon preference is daggers.
  • Has the unique ability to extend all allies' buffs by 1 turn (Excludes 1-turn buffs).
  • A strong, but unreliable debuff skill, due to being random. In High Level raids, landing the wrong debuff may be detrimental to the success of the raid.
  • Damage on his skills easily hits the damage cap.
  • Utility is hampered due to average debuff success rate.

  • Role: Attacker
  • MASSIVE Charge Attack damage with each Status Icy Blade1.pngIcy Blade stack she gains. Extremely high cap at around 2.5~(3.5~ vs Fire) million at full stacks.
  • Squishy; requires defenders due to her low defense, but her attack power outweighs this drawback.
  • Stacking Status Icy Blade5.pngIcy Blades requires an entirely different play-style and time consuming.
  • Charge Attack damage is still very good at 3 stacks.

  • Role: Support/Tank
  • His Charge Attack deals no damage and instead provides a random effect to all allies or all enemies.
  • Cannot contribute to Chain Bursts, but his buffs/debuffs can potentially make up for it.
  • His ATK self-buffs are quite potent. His kit is designed to work with Katalina and all-female parties.
  • Can attain very high DEF with his self-buffs.
  • Dagger affinity means he'll benefit more from Leviathan Gaze Omega square.jpg Leviathan Gaze Omega weapon grids.
  • Overall, a decent Water support character for new players, but his Charge Attack may not suit some playstyles.
