Sphere Recommendations

NOTE: 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

How-To-Play Notes

  • Open with Ring Holy or Seraphic Star 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 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 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 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 typical. Special thanks to its me again#9086 on Discord for this extensive testing!

  • Has a stylish costume!

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

  • His S2 and EX being non-elemental means he can satisfy other units' elemental Force Conditions!

Removable Passives

  • BRV Initiative

  • 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)

  • DEF passives

  • Ultima (IX) Focused Attack (but ONLY when going against 2 bosses - this is highly important when there is exactly 1)
