Sphere RecommendationsNOTE: The sphere letters below are hyperlinked to our Sphere Hub which lists all available spheres sorted by effect!
A Spheres - Focus on BRV DMG & ATK completely, don’t be distracted by other stats
D Sphere - Any of the attack based D spheres are great, just not Wakka
Open with Ring Holy (S1) or Seraphic Star (LD) to drop your imperil.
NOTE Ring Holy is an alternating BRV attack and will attack the target after hitting others
Enemies A & B, target A, attack will hit B first then A, then B, repeat
Enemies A, B, & C:
target B, attack will first hit A, then C, then B, A, repeat
target A, attack will first hit B, then C, then A, B, Repeat
target C, attack will first hit A, then B, then C, A repeat
Seraphic Star (LD) activates your party auras & holy enchant. Your next use of this skill is when his overhead begins to run low or to take advantage of a high Force HP DMG Bonus
Ultima (S2) is your go-to damage dealing skill but make sure to use it to keep your buffs active. He can jump turns with his high turn rate letting him do even more damage before enemies act sometimes.
Symphonic Force (EX) should just be used to maintain [The Darkness of Eternity] buff up, it takes 2 skill uses to fully charge it.
Note that Kuja's BT aura (Holy Enchant +50% will overwrite his LD enchant +20%, so essentially the BT equates to 30% BRV DMG up vs his typical enchant. Special thanks to its me again#9086 on Discord for this extensive testing!
His BT rework allows it to provide 20% HP DMG Limit to the party as well
Has a stylish costume!
Starlight Soirée (FR) provides 10% HP DMG & Limit on AoE attacks and asks for:
Holy Ability on turn (20%)
AoE BRV DMG on turn (30%, 50% for Kuja)
Note in Single Target fights or when only 1 enemy is left, things are considered single target so selecting a normally AoE move like his S2 is still ST and will lose out on the AoE condition and aura
Team Synergy Notes
Kuja is an option for Holy Enchant if you lack another enchanter. He covers some support, so pair him with a battery/healer, as well as a damage dealer to take advantage of the enchant
He lacks healing which is a supportive element he lacks so in fights that hurt consider giving him a healing buddy
His S2 and EX being non-elemental means he can satisfy other units' elemental Force Conditions!
Thanks to his BT rework and FR aura, he can provide the part with 30% HP DMG Limit
Break Speed Up
BRV Attack++ HP Attack++ Up (you’ll never need this unless you plan to use Kuja without his LD effect up, which should always be active)
Ultima (IX) Focused Attack (but ONLY when going against 2 bosses - this is highly important when there is exactly 1)
