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: Attacker/Defender/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 low 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: 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.
  • Damage on his skills easily hits the damage cap.

Izmir iconA.jpg
Izmir Label Type Attack.png
Label Race Draph.png
9.0
  • 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/Defender
  • The Queen of story mode; her kit stays useful for a very long time.
  • Status Veil.pngVeil is always useful. Learn what it does.
  • Heal eventually becomes too weak to let her be a main healer.
  • Story characters obtained from the main story suffer from lower than average Charge Attack damage.

  • Role: Attacker/Healer/Buffer/Defender
  • Incredibly versatile; a core character in almost every Water party.
  • Her Charge Attack buffs the party with a potent Status WaterAtkUp.pngWater Attack UP that stacks with most other similar buffs.
  • Short cooldown on her defensive ability makes her reliable against big boss attacks.

  • Role: Attacker
  • Powerful Break assassin with strong self-buffs, but low defense.
  • Excellent damage even outside of Break mode.
  • Slow build up; requires turns to improve her skill effectiveness and power.
  • Difficult for beginners if they don't have other characters to protect/support Narmaya.

  • Role: Attacker/Defender
  • Massive 1-turn burst damage potential and overall attack power.
  • Potent Status WaterResDown.pngWater Resist DOWN.
  • Playstyle requires micromanaging Status Spirit5.pngSpirit stacks. Poor stack management heavily penalizes Romeo's stats.
  • His Status FireResUp.pngFire Resist UP party buff is very strong, but requires consuming Status Spirit5.pngSpirit stacks.
  • Difficult to play as a defensive character and is better suited as an offensive damage dealer.

8.5
  • Role: Attacker
  • Pure attacker; is often the first Water SSR to hit the damage cap with her charge attack in combination with her Status Defiance.pngCharge Attack Damage UP and Status CriticalUp.pngCritical Hit Rate UP ability.
  • Excellent as a sub member after a main party member has been KO'd with her 100% charge bar ability.
  • Falls off late game; overly reliant on charge attacks and no multi-attack self-buffs gives way to other Water attackers.

  • Role: Debuffer/Healer
  • Good early on with her Miserable Mist like ability while you're getting the Dark Fencer class.
  • Low cooldown, high HP heal and has Status Gravity.pngDelay.
  • Abilities overlap with the Dark Fencer class; She also doesn't have the debuff success rate of a Dark Fencer on her abilities.
