Character Notes & Recommendations

Summon Board Passive selections:

  • Pandemonium choose 3 / 4 / 6

    • If you are planning to BT+ Bartz to 3/3, consider changing your non-elemental attackers' Pandemonium choices to 3 / 4 / 6 also for +10% BRV DMG when Bartz BT+ effect is active (Raines would be 3 / 6 / 7)...

    • Pandemonium's 4 & 5 passives are difficult to maintain, so removing them provides almost no downside.

  • Odin choose 3 / 6 / 7

  • Bahamut choose 4 / 5 / 6

  • Usuals:

    • Ifrit, Shiva, Ramuh, Brothers 4 / 5 / 7

    • Leviathan, Diabolos, Alexander 4 / 5 / 6

    • Acquire by purchasing in the Power Token Exchange

Sphere Recommendations

can be found at our Sphere Hub!

  • A Sphere: Any ATK or BRV DMG sphere works. He hits element weakness often and does melee BRV DMG

  • C Sphere: Ceodore sphere to round out his support abilities. Maria is easy to trigger.

  • D Sphere: Any ATK boosting sphere (not Wakka)

Gameplay Advice:

  • Skill spammer with LD and 1 time use HP+ for 100% gravity effects

  • The decision of when to use BT window and BT+ really depends on the fight and the team composition. As stated in Tactics of the graphic, BT once your calls are up at the opening generally, and then BT+ when you have 1 turn remaining. The reason is that the BT+ will keep your effect at 3 stacks and refresh the duration.

  • There’s also a case for BT+ first to power through the early part, and then use your Burst window to handle a damage race scenario. This might be especially helpful if you have a Raines call on him, so that you can constantly launch the enemy and use Bartz’s constant battery to deal more damage in the air.
