Supplementary Notes to the Infographic Analysis:

The infographic covers the key critical points and should be reviewed prior to delving into the in-depth notes

Gameplay Notes:

  • Firion needs to maintain his HP to avoid getting his skills downgraded. You have many tools to restore HP if this happens, in order of preference:

    • EX (if charged)

    • AA (easy choice)

    • LD (if debuff is falling off)

    • S1 (if [Blood Weapon] buff is falling off)

    • S2 (if generics are running low)

    • HP+++ (if an ALL attack is incoming and you don’t want to be broken)

  • Firion is fairly easy to play, just maintain his buffs, and use his LD at the start of a wave and after his debuff has fallen off. Be mindful not to use LD before enemies cleanse their debuffs.

  • Blood Weapon is your go-to damage dealer, but is best when you already have above 50% of mBRV just to maximize the splash damage.

  • Seize Weapon is the best party battery that he has access to, but it does leave Firion vulnerable. It’s also good for shaving a single target.

  • Weaponsmaster+ is his primary way to shave BRV AoE (charged in 2 skills) or you can opt to use his HP Drain Advance Thrust (AA) on one enemy, and a skill on the other.

Team Synergy Notes:

  • Do not compare Firion to Rude! Firion is best enabled specifically with Rude, as Rude further raises the amount of overhealing which can be converted to BRV. With Firion healing as often as he does, he takes full advantage of Rude’s conversion aura with some premium battery. They complement each other perfectly. Your third slot can disrupt the boss or the Lufenia orb.

  • Add an enchanter or a BRV DMG boost to further power his damage. Batteries are great to leverage his splash & his trap attack.

  • Gau, Gladio, & Exdeath are more off-turn damage characters that work very well with Firion, but these characters all rely on enemies taking lots of turns for that off-turn damage (as does Firion).

Spheres:

  • A sphere - Focus ATK to maximize his battery from S2, as well as his damage. BRV DMG spheres are also a good choice.

  • C sphere - Garnet is premium, though Alphinaud & Maria’s spheres are both amazing while also empowering the party. Eiko and Nine both have a huge self heal on their sphere which Firion will convert to battery! Other battery spheres are fine too but probably are best on other characters.

  • D sphere - Focus on any of the ATK spheres, except Wakka!


Bad passives (if you lack enough CP to equip important passives):

Firion has SO many useless passives!

  • BRV Attack+ (character board) is useless

  • HP Attack+ (character board) is useless

  • BRV Attack++ (character board) is useless

  • HP Attack++ (character board) is useless

  • HP Damage Attack Up is terrible unless against an enemy with HP poison or constant HP attacks

  • DEF passives
