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
Always open with LD to upgrade his kit & get your buffs. Use your free skills always on Glacification+.
If you can break an enemy with BRV+++ (it's 50% BRV reduction + 4 hits), it’s situational whether you want to. The full analysis is further below!
Note that Glacification+ can still be attained using BRV+++ or LD against a broken target, it just will not be a free instant turn.
His LD buff is now 12T, with 4 uses, making BRV+++ more realistic, check our analysis further below.
Glacification+ is the best use of the free skill after LD
He can easily spam skills if he wants to (30 turn spam based on EX recharge). This gives you more than enough time, meaning you should never use his HP++ generally.
If you ever see Frost Blade (instead of Glacification) on your screen… immediately AA, or if your Peerless Hero buff is running low, then use LD. Do not use Kam with Frost Blade, that’s the indicator that his entire kit is downgraded massively.
Esoteric Region+ is great to use with low BRV amount, or when Kam is targeted to further ensure that he isn’t broken, since getting broken would downgrade his kit. Getting broken is less of a worry with Peerless Hero active, as well as Addle inflicted.
Great Wheel charges in 3 skills, and is his only source of AoE BRV shaving. It has an excellent AoE delay as well.
BRV+++ Analysis & Sample Scenario (this is a dropdown)
Kam has access to virtually 23 skill uses, including the free skills from his LD. This allows him to spam skills for 30T (~90 turn quest).
Peerless Hero now has 12T duration, with 4 LD uses lasts 48T total, but if you don’t want your aura to fall off, it drops to 44T, since you will use LD again with 1T remaining. If it falls off, it is fine, it’s up to you.
TLDR: Kam can use 9 BRV+++ throughout a quest to guarantee all 13 paralyzes, and still have 5T remaining on his LD effect. This expects you are using your LD when 1T is left, and that using the LD will not fully charge your EX (since you’ll want to use the free paralyze afterward).
1st LD use cycle
Kam opens with LD, and uses 3 skills to charge his EX. This will be his 5th turn, with 8T remaining on his buff, 19 skills left to use
Kam can use 3 skills and EX to recharge, and 4T will be left, 16 skills to use. You’re going to have to refresh his LD effect in the next recharge cycle since it’s at 4 and will fall off.
You can afford to use 2 BRV+++ easily in this first LD window and end this cycle with 2T left. This is certainly not required, it’s up to you and up to the battle conditions!
2nd LD use cycle
If you used 2 BRV+++, your effect will start this round with 2T left. This is perfect for skill (1T left) > LD (refresh) > S1+ free > EX (10T remaining, 16 skills left).
Next 3 skills into recharge will leave you at 6T remaining, 13 skills left
Next 3 skills into recharge will leave you at 2T remaining, 10 skills left
3rd LD use cycle
Skill > LD > S1+ > EX is perfect here (10T remaining, 7 skills remaining)
Same as 2nd LD use cycle, 1 skill remaining, which would technically be the last LD use
What does this mean?
Kam has a long enough LD effect duration to technically use 9 BRV+++ to guarantee all of his S1 are + versions and that his effect never falls off. He has 5T of wiggle room that you can be mindful of.
Team Synergy Notes:
Make sure that one of his allies can AoE shave if needed. Your only option is BRV+++ breaking into a free instant turn. Kam is a disruptor first, and a damage dealer second
Kam has a 50% crit damage boost from his EX+ 3/3, so allies like Sazh, Aranea, Trey can give him significant damage boosts.
Calls that inflict Lock (Zack is an example) so that the enemy attacks Kam is a way to ensure Addle procs, but LD calls tend to be more useful than ensuring an Addle proc (thanks to his LD board)
A sphere - Focus on BRV DMG & ATK, those are his primary stats, and any further boost to mBRV will boost how much regen his Peerless Hero buff gives him.
E spheres - Kam generally debuffs every 6 turns, so you can opt for an ATK sphere, though his own to further reduce ATK is nice for him (so is Reno’s to also counter PHY ATK)
