Sphere Recommendations

NOTE: The sphere letters below are hyperlinked to our Sphere Hub which lists all available spheres sorted by effect!
  • C Spheres - Focus on truly any of the aura C spheres listed. All are relevant and triggerable by Deuce’s kit

  • D Sphere - Focus on any ATK D sphere listed… even Wakka! All are relevant for her.

How-To-Play Notes

  • Deuce is a support at heart, so she’s all about maintaining her buffs to the party. She starts with her LD overhead effect, so you can open with Concerto and then Dissonant Sonata to apply all those buffs to the party.

  • Concerto (S1) is a party battery and heal instant turn move that can be used in emergencies to heal party quickly or to fill the Force Gauge or Force HP DMG Bonus.

  • Dissonant Sonata (S2) is a go-to BRV shave (though it’s not very strong) with single target damage and battery. This is also used to upkeep your MATK buff on the party.

  • Requiem of Ruin (EX) batteries party before dealing some decent damage and granting her Fortisimo which provides more party buffs.

  • Hymn of Healing (LD) is an excellent burst heal, good BRV shaving, and battery. She has plenty of turns for her overhead so if you need to use it earlier than expected, that’s fine!

  • As for the free skill use, you can’t really go wrong. Use your free skill on a base skill, whichever one you need at the moment whether it's for attacking or healing/force gauge filling or on AA.

  • All Magic Attack (AA) is great to use to boost your magic attack and overflow during a critical window of the fight.

Team Synergy Notes

  • Pair Deuce with strong magic attackers and have fun. Odds are you have Terra, Rinoa, Emperor, Ultimecia, or another strong magic attacker, and they will work great with Deuce.

  • Her LD call is nice for your magic attackers also!

  • Besides MATK and Magic BRV DMG boosts, she still provides solid boosts to Physical attackers and is a great support for either.

Removable Passives

NOTE: Passives should generally only be removed if you lack CP space. There are very rare occasions where a character has a bad passive that disrupts their optimal gameplay.
  • HP Attack+ Up (useless, she has an HP++)

  • BRV Attack+ Up (useless, she has a BRV++)

  • Initiative (low impact, but situationally important to get buffs up for the team early in the wave)
