Overview

Grand Cain is one of Earth's premier support characters, with a debuff that caps DEF Down with Ability Miserable.png Miserable MistInflict Status AttackDown.png25% ATK DownATK is lowered

effect to all allies upon using his charge attack. Although his damage output is mediocre, his utility makes him invaluable for any Earth party. Although solely having a katana proficiency is a bit of an oddity, because Earth has several other powerful katana-proficiency characters, it ends up working in his favor.

Synergy

Main Character

  • Berserker: Berserker's innate high double attack rate and instant C.A. ready synergize with Cain's need to C.A. often. The buffs from Ability Rage.png Rage IVAll parties gain Status AttackUp.png40% ATK UpATK is boosted

    .
    • For pre-High Level players, the Weapon Master class is an acceptable substitute. Though there is less subskill flexibility compared to Berserker, all the advice regarding Berserker synergy still applies.
  • Kengo: This C.A.-centric class works perfectly with not only Cain, but other Earth katana characters like Alexiel, Eahta, and Siegfried.
  • Chrysaor: Another C.A.-centric class with a katana proficiency, Chrysaor can help fill Cain's charge bar while dealing massive amounts of damage via charge attacks.

  • Npc s 3040037000 01.jpg Eahta: Eahta's accelerated charge bar gain and 200% maximum charge bar lets him charge attack twice, faster, letting Cain follow suit even if his charge bar is a bit short from 100%. They share a katana proficiency for Atma synergy.

Kamigame's recommended EMP build for Cain. Prioritize Debuff Success, Crit, and Triple Attack. EMP Skill can be taken for more utility, and Charge Bar is recommended so he can charge attack more quickly (and extend the buffs from Soldier's Swiftness).
