Summon Board Passive selections:

Numbers listed below refer to the 7 passives to select for each Ultimate Summon Board for the character. Top is 1, bottom is 7.
  • Odin choose 3 / 6 / 7

  • Bahamut choose 4 / 6 / 7 (note that we previously recommended 5 over 7 due to Cinque's mBRV regen. Currently in the game mBRV stats are becoming less important due to high overflows and HP damage up. We now prefer the extra HP damage in launch, but it won't make a big difference if you don't want to refarm)

  • Usuals:

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

    • Leviathan, Pandemonium, Diabolos, Alexander 4 / 5 / 6

Sphere Recommendations

NOTE: The sphere letters below are hyperlinked to our Sphere Hub which lists all available spheres sorted by effect!
  • A Sphere - Melee Attacker that wants ATK or BRV DMG Spheres

  • E Sphere - ATK boosting spheres are ok as she debuffs all the time.

How-To-Play Notes:

These notes are thanks to the work of Renki#4255, who proactively wrote these notes, allowing Ink to edit & add them here.
  • Gameplay Tips: Her upgraded skills are strong and delay enemies, but Cinque will also move her turn back with her low turn rate. Pairing her with turn manipulators like Rem, Aphmau or Lunafreya helps he keep going especially if you can get her to go multiple times at the end of a Force Time. Her C90 & Rework make it so her upgraded skills lower Stun stacks to 1 on enemies but her follow-up will add 3 stacks back. In 2-target fights, she will consistently have at least 5 buffs on enemies so push buttons away (as long as you can deal with her self delay)!

  • Earthquake+ is a strong aoe attack that comes with delay to all targets.

  • Homerun Swing is her go to move when not using EX or LD. This move will remove Stun from the target so it is best used on a single target repeatedly in a multi-target fight as it will stay in it’s + form as long as there are at least 5 stacks of Stun on the field. This will also delay the target.

  • Whirling Mace is a very strong AoE BRV shave that also delays all enemies, launches the target and makes others launchable and recovers one use of Homerun Swing. Also of note, this will put 5 stacks of Stun on all targets meaning it is a good follow up to an Earthquake+.

  • Gaia Pulse provides her Braid Girl buff on herself providing a lot of strong buffs for herself as well as giving her her follow-up attack as well as putting up to 5 stacks of Stun on all targets and delaying them by 1 turn if they have no Stun currently or 2 turns if they already have Stun.

  • Follow-up [TOTSUGEKI] is a strong follow up that provides her important See Ya~ debuff. This debuff lowers enemy defense and increases HP Damage taken. Keep in mind, this debuff does tick down 1 turn each time the target is attacked except in Burst Phases.
