Supplementary Notes to the Infographic Analysis:

The infographic covers the key critical points and should be reviewed prior to delving into the in-depth notes


  • Alisaie is true to her Final Fantasy XIV gameplay and has a mana gauge to manage in order to unleash her strongest attacks. She is possibly one of the most complex character in the game.

  • Very simply put, your priority is to use black and white mana skills in succession to fill your mana gauge over 5 / 5, which will enable the use of Enchanted Redoublement (her strongest ability).

  • After using Enchanted Redoublement, you will get to use Verholy or Verflare once. Choose wisely depending on the state of your previous skills, you want to have both Verfire/stone up after that!

  • As a general note, be sure to use your free skills when Dualcast is up even if you have enough mana for Redoublement. If your EX is up, you can safely use it as it will extend Dualcast.

  • Again, read the Infographic for context then check the Rotation Guide below this to know exactly how to optimize her damage!

Team Synergy Notes:

  • Alisaie is extremely speedy, she will not make the most out of instant batteries as she likes to play in successions. Pair her with iBRV & BRV Regen supports to maximize her damage output each turn. Aphmau, Ami, Penelo, Lenna etc...

  • Alisaie has no AoE shaving, make sure to take that into account when building your team.

  • Pair her with Sazh, Hope or any other Buff extender and abuse your Dualcast on free skills as much as possible, this will boost her longevity by a ton.

  • Her imperil might help other damage dealers, but be aware that Alisaie has absolutely no other team support or utility. She can fill the damage slot on her own fine, focus bringing her supports to boost her stats.

Sphere Recommendations:

  • A sphere: Leo sphere is a prime choice for her as she has only single-target abilities. Otherwise, Papa/Aerith/CoD/Her Own sphere for massive MATK boost and finally Seven, Prishe are also viable choices.

  • D sphere: Most D spheres are not optimal for selfish damage dealers. However, if you choose to use one, focus on ATK.

Rotation Helper

Please bear in mind this is a simplified version of the basic possibilities for Alisaie. Her kit is very versatile and allows for a lot of playstyles, but these will get you through everything.

In the Advanced Rotation (last) be advised that BRV+ & Riposte can be swapped (use Riposte First and BRV+ after if needed). Again, be flexible! You don't have to follow these by heart. Try to spice things up with a buff extender and remember to follow some important rules :

  • Always use Verfire then Verstone even if you put EX in between, don't do Verfire then Verthunder for exemple.

  • Always finish with Verholy if you used Verthunder before, Verflare if you used Veraero... the goal is to have Stone & Fire ready again.

  • Use AA if you have an extender and are at 2 turns of Dualcast, or use it without Dualcast active otherwise.
