Sphere Recommendations

NOTE: The sphere letters below are hyperlinked to our Sphere Hub which lists all available spheres sorted by effect!
  • A Sphere - Focus ATK & BRV DMG. He's a melee attacker with no battery based on ATK so Melee/Physical attack spheres ok!

  • E Sphere - He doesn't debuff regularly enough to trigger most ATK spheres outside of Seymour.

How-To-Play Notes

These notes are thanks to the work of Renki#4255, who proactively wrote these notes, allowing Cel to edit & add them here.
  • Gilgamesh’s new LD buff grants him a set of new HP attacks to supplement his damage and provide a few new utility abilities to his kit. Each time one is used, it is replaced once it reaches Gilgamesh’s turn again. These attacks have few HP dumps than his skills but do provide some utility. Gilgamesh will want to open with his LD to gain his new buff.

  • Death Claw 100% gravities the target before attacking, allowing Gilgamesh to have an on demand break. This will change his BRV attack to Kotetsu and grants Gilgamesh a generic stat buff. There is also a small chance for this to paralyze the target.

  • Wild Dance is Gilgamesh’s go to damage skill. Wild dance changes his HP attack to Genji Blade and grants a generic stat buff and a stack to his Big Man on the Bridge buff. At 5 stacks, this grants a strong stat buff, a debuff aura, and ensures Gilgamesh crits while increasing his crit damage.

  • Hurricane is Gilgamesh’s fast charging EX, typically taking 2 turns to recharge. Hurricane will recover 1 use of Wild Dance, delay all targets, and grants Real Mensch and 3 stacks of Big Man on the Bridge to Gilgamesh. Real Mensch provides stat boosts to Gilgamesh and a BRV regen.

  • Gilgamesh’s LD grants his new LD buff. This buff provides stat boosts to Gilgamesh and a random HP attack at the beginning of Gilgamesh’s turn if Gilgamesh doesn’t already have a special HP attack from his LD.

  • Gilgamesh’s BT aura gains a stack each time Gilgamesh acts. At 3/3 and max stacks, this grants increases to party BRV and HP damage and limit.

  • Kotetsu is a 40% gravity attack with a single HP dump that inflicts Melee Resist Down.

  • Genji Blade is a single HP dump that inflicts a generic stat debuff.

  • All LD HP attacks deal the same damage, are free turns with instant turn rate and increase self buffs by 1 turn. They're kinda look like other LDs we've seen before :thinking_emoji:

    • Royal Sword? moves all allies turns to after Gilgamesh. (Onion Knight)

    • Mythgraven Blade? heals the party. (Paladin Cecil)

    • Apocalypse? delays all targets by 2 turns. (Cloud)

    • Ice Brand? is a battery and launch. (Ramza)
