Sphere Recommendations NOTE: The sphere letters below are hyperlinked to our Sphere Hub which lists all available spheres sorted by effect!
A Sphere - Focus on ATK or BRV DMG, & mBRV is a good add-on. Something like Sephiroth’s sphere is great, but you can opt to give her a more offensive sphere with a higher ATK boost, like Aerith. Any of the ATK spheres work well, BRV DMG is always great. You can also opt to use Iroha sphere as it will give her around 1 or 2 good BRV hits worth of damage for the first HP ATK
B Sphere - She can't lock, so Gabranth or Celes will be the most functional
D Sphere - With another buff from a call/party member, she can utilize Wakka's sphere. Otherwise, any party ATK boosting sphere will do.
How to Play NotesThese notes are thanks to the work of Renki#4255, who proactively wrote these notes, allowing Cel to edit & add them here.
TLDR: Maintain her debuff on enemies for her counter/followup. Keep in mind that Beatrix has 3 buffs she applies on all party members throughout her kit. Only Noble Loyalty is framed, the other 2 may be pushed off.
If she is fighting an enemy that can delay, she can be paired with a lock call in order to be constantly delayed and still deal strong damage through her Counter/Follow-up as off turn damage.
Saint Cloth (S1) batteries the party while applying 2 of her buffs, one of which is an HP regen and can be useful when she can't reduce incoming HP damage.
Thunder Slash (S2, S2+ if 9+ buffs on party) applies her important Noble Loyalty buff on the party. This buff is one of the 2 conditions for her counter. If she uses her + version the damage is significantly increased.
Climhazzard (EX, EX+ from 9-11 party buffs and EX++ at 12+) recovers 1 use of Thunder Slash and gives herself the Sworn General buff. Once again, the enhanced forms allow for much greater damage from the attack. This also allows Beatrix to use Holy Knight’s Safeguard as a transformed HP command one time.
Holy Knight’s Safeguard provides a battery and heal to the party but more importantly gives Beatrix her Holy Knight’s Safeguard buff which reduces incoming HP damage by 100%. With her C85 passive this move is an instant free turn and extends her existing buffs by 1T. Be wary, this buff effectively only lasts for 1 of Beatrix’s turns and it cannot be extended. Use this only when you know Beatrix will not go again before the opponent’s next dangerous turn or before enemy force/threshold attacks.
Shock (LD) removes all buffs from the enemy, deals strong AOE damage, ignores defense, and batteries the party. This will also apply the HP Regen on the party and Rose Petals on the enemy.
Rose Petals enables her to use her follow-up whenever she attacks an opponent with Rose Petals as well as being sap, a few stat drops, and imperiling Thunder.
Note: Beatrix herself doesn't enchant the party and Beatrix has to be on the field for the important stat drops/imperil.
Her Follow-up/Counter removes one buff from the target followed by a defense ignoring attack and battery to the party. This attack is triggered anytime Beatrix attacks an opponent with Rose Petals on them or any opponent attacks a party member who has Noble Loyalty on them.
Dedicated Knight's Pride (FR) removes enemy buffs and grants the party a couple buffs. In her Force Time she wants:
Thunder BRV DMG for 5% (Beatrix is special so she gets 20%) &
Party has 12+ buffs after an allied turn (30%)
In fights with a lot of enemy turns, Beatrix can raise her HP DMG Bonus very high with all the counters she'll get off. Just make sure to maintain the Noble Loyalty buff on allies!
