Sphere Recommendations

NOTE: The sphere letters below are hyperlinked to our Sphere Hub which lists all available spheres sorted by effect!
  • A Spheres: Since he always ignores DEF, you don't need as much ATK and you can focus on BRV DMG as he might not always be able to ignore BRV DMG Reductions.

How-To-Play Notes

  • If you just want his LDCA you

    • NEED: Summon Boards, LD, LD boards, HA, C90, UW 0/5

    • Probably want: EX+, HA +3/3, UW 5/5

  • Cyan’s LD brings a very hard hitting attack to Cyan’s kit but it is only usable every time his Bushido reaches 7 stacks. This makes for a great LDCA in coops. Otherwise, Cyan plays very similarly to before his LD, with more damage. You want to maintain Concentrate on Cyan as much as possible. If you need to debuff the opponent you want to use Bushido Fang. For more damage or to gravity the opponent, use Bushido Dragon.

  • Concentrate: Fang and Concentrate Dragon are both free skill use, free turn with instant turn rate. These moves grant Cyan his Concentrate buff and a speed buff or mBRV buff respectively. Concentrate increases Cyan’s attack and changes his Concentrate ability to Cyan’s Bushido Fang and Bushido Dragon skills.

  • Bushido Fang is a guaranteed hit that dispels 3 buffs on the target.

  • Bushido Dragon is also a guaranteed hit that 100% gravities the target before batterying Cyan and attacking. After the attack, Cyan receives another battery and heals.

  • Tsubame Gaeshi is a slow charging EX, typically needing 3 skill uses to refresh. This attack ignores defense and any buffs the opponent has, insuring Cyan does high damage. If Cyan’s current HP is at least 80% max HP, he will perform the + variation, dispelling 5 debuffs from all targets and cleansing the party of debuffs. Both variations will grant Cyan’s Samurai’s Dignity buff and revert Bushido Fang and Bushido Dragon to the Concentrate: Fang and Concentrate: Dragon skills. Samurai’s Dignity grants strong stat buffs to Cyan.

    • These transformed Concentrate skills are free use and free, instant turn making his 3 skill charge, 2 skills in practice and offering a free Bushido stack while maintaining it's existence

  • Bushido: Tempest is a very hard hitting LD attack that is usable once Cyan’s new overhead, Bushido, reaches 7 stacks. Cyan gains 1 stack every time he acts. This attack ignores all enemy buffs, is a guaranteed hit, and does not consume BRV until the last attack. Bushido enhances Cyan’s BRV and HP damage and allows Cyan to ignore any BRV damage reductions as long as the target has no buffs.
