Sphere Recommendations

NOTE: The sphere letters below are hyperlinked to our Sphere Hub which lists all available spheres sorted by effect!
  • A Sphere - ATK or BRV DMG to get more bang for your firey bucks

  • C Sphere - Maria or Llyud to boost Party's ATK while spamming Curaga, Alphinaud for the same but also while using Ultima or Jecht Bomber+. Garnet if you want to raise only his ATK after a Curaga. Pecil for the usual Encouragement + Pecil combo.

  • D Spheres - Raise party's ATK with any of the usuals! (Wakka sus)

How-To-Play Notes

  • Before the FR gauge is filled, you will probably start spamming a few Curagas until his Overdrive reaches 5. Then you can press EX and LD to get the most of his damage. After his first set of upgraded EX & LD, it will take less Curagas to reach Overdrive 5 until eventually the FR guage is full. If you use Braska's FR, he can capitalize very well with his upgraded EX and/or LD in these turns should he act; otherwise another fire attacker (or Non-elemental but fire-enchanted attacker) can use a strong BT phase to deal good damage.

    • Since his EX is charged at Quest Start you can use it right away as the first action for a free curaga skill to start ramping up.

  • S1 is his battery/healing button. Can be used for it's utility, FR gauge filling focus or to buy turns until his Overdrive reaches 5 stacks.

  • S2 is a filler skill if you're running low on Curaga's to spam

  • EX should be used when it's upgraded (Overdrive at 5 stacks) for the biggest OOMF

  • LD can be used as a big nuke button, but since his LD buff is tied to it be mindful to not overuse it in long endurance fights

  • His FR has decent on-turn conditions which Braska himself can usually hit, however other units may need help via enchanting (Ignis can enchant non-elemental attackers while Lulu can enchant anyone). In HP Poison/Attack heavy fights, units with strong heals and regens can help ensure units are healthy enough to hit his full HP FR condition.
