Sphere Recommendations NOTE: The sphere letters below are hyperlinked to our Sphere Hub which lists all available spheres sorted by effect!
Start with his Smoke Screen attack to get attention on him and get him to dodge. His EX takes 2 skill uses to recharge but his EX still only lasts 2 turns so there will be a turn where Edge can't make the party evade unless running a party buff extender somewhere.
Shock is his most damage filler skill but he may jump due to it's high turn rate
Smokescreen will refresh his Lock debuff and apply his Eblan's Teachings buff if it happens to fall off.
Note: while Lock is listed at 1T, his LD gives him Fire Scarf that extends debuffs he places by 5T so it's actually a 6T lock!
Blitz Mirage is his EX that will extend Eblan's Teachings and apply Mirage and Awakened by Anger
Mirage is what grants the party evasion
Awakened by Anger boosts his damage a bit more
Inferno is his LD that can reapply his framed fire/thunder imperil should it fall off.
Having his LD passives equipped gives him his Fire Scarf which grants him 30% BRV Retain, boosts party's BRV & HP DMG and enables his 2 counters:
Fire Scarf Counter is a 2 HP attack counter when Edge dodges with 0 or 1 stacks.
Ultimate Art: Advent of Phoenix is a 4 HP counter when Edge dodges with 2 stacks
Both reapply his imperil if they fell off and grant him BRV after the final HP attack.
Notable Team Synergy:
Boost his ATK, BRV DMG and BRV DMG Limit
BRV gain on crit or BRV gain after HP attack effects also boost his damage tons
Can appreciate buff extenders to extend Mirage if needed (Sazh, Hope, Yuna, Eiko)
Avoid too many framed buffs as it can push off his unframed Evasion buff or lock him out of his EX buff that enables party evasion.
Don't pair him with units who want someone to get hit (Beatrix, Auron, etc)
