Summon Board Passive selections:

  • Ramuh choose 3 / 4 / 5

  • Leviathan choose 3 / 5 / 6 (note most water attackers would rather have mBRV from 4, but Garnet wants both ATK & iBRV for her kit, so we recommend 5 over 4!)

  • Odin choose 4 / 6 / 7

  • Bahamut choose 3 / 4 / 6

  • For any summons not shown here, please use our Board Passives Cheat Sheet located on Summon Hub!

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:

  • She is a unique dual enchanter that allows you to bypass one of her elements being absorbed. Both water and thunder would have to be absorbed to lock her out.

  • Counter her low attack late in battle by staying in water stance to increase party battery!

  • Check our roles page to see HP Regen characters that supplement her burst heal.

  • She is excellent with damage dealers, especially those that appreciate her regen, but be careful of those that are fast. You’ll need to pay closer attention to her enchant buff on them.

  • Her enchant does stack with Lightning, who would receive a 20% boost to her thunder based attacks when enchanted by Garnet also.

Team Synergy Notes:

  • Garnet works well alongside other hybrid supports, like Alphinaud & Keiss, and even those like Aphmau (who just has framed party buffs).

  • Stack regens and run her with other HP+ batteries like Arciela, Freya, Wakka, etc.

Sphere Recommendations:

  • A sphere: Focus on buffing ATK & preferably iBRV also, but mBRV is good too

  • C sphere: Focus on ATK & iBRV !

    • She has possibly the strongest offensive C sphere in the game. Consider giving it not to her, but rather a self healing attacker like Aerith, Dark Knight Cecil, Leo, Rinoa, Snow, Yuri, or Yuna - or just save it!

    • Porom and Rosa's spheres nicely give her a small party regen heal, but ideally this comes from your party

  • D sphere: Any D spheres work for her! Check the link for ATK & iBRV aura options!

    • Note that she is capable of taking more difficult spheres to upkeep, like Wakka!
