Sphere RecommendationsNOTE: The sphere letters below are hyperlinked to our Sphere Hub which lists all available spheres sorted by effect!
A Spheres - ATK or BRV DMG boosts to make his few BRV hits count!
C Sphere - Maria or Llyud to boost party's ATK, Garnet for a selfish ATK boost.
Open with LD to get his LD buff up and get to swinging!
His Precision Strike debuff can only be applied to 1 enemy at a time and reapplying it will remove it from the other target
His S2 and EX will be your most used skills outside of maintaining his LD buff
Call for Precision Strike and Call for Ferocity (S1 and LD) can be used to reapply his Precision Strike debuff, but if you really need to shave a specific enemy, use AA to make sure your target is debuffed
His LD grants him his Ferocity buff which doubles down on his Single Target focus, granting attacks that start with Single Target BRV hits extra buffs and an added on HP attack (10% of the attacking unit's HP DMG Limit) to each HP attack which can spread out if the attack has splash involved
(e.g. Terra's S1 and EX have ST BRV hits and HP Splash; the main HP attacks and splashed hits will have the extra HP attack on them)
Chase (launch) HP attacks benefit from this effect
The extra HP attack can stack with other sources of a similar effect in the future. It is not effected by HP DMG modifiers and is a flat amount dependent on the attacking unit's HP DMG Limit which you can raise with HA, HA+, certain summon phases or party member's BT effects that have it
AoE attacks units in a single target fight will also trigger this effect funnily enough
Kefka with LD boards applies his debuffs AoE before his ST BRV attacks and will not benefit from the effect unless the fight is ST.
IF THE ENEMY HAS NO HP LEFT, LEO'S FEROCITY EFFECT WILL NOT TRIGGER (Finishing blows or overkill)
Shock and Shock+ are much stronger with C85 and Leo isn't held back by 2 target fights anymore as he will hit hard with his EX regardless of enemy count and his enhanced variant has BRV gains to compensate for lack of a second target to steal BRV from.
He doesn't have on demand HP Heals or mitigation so he can't help with HP attack heavy fights, but can top off units with his regen as the fight goes on otherwise
Team Synergy Notes
He boosts units with Single Target attacks, launches or splash on their ST attacks as they can get the BRV DMG boost from Precision Strike and the mini HP attack tacked onto their regular HP attacks
Units like Raines, Tifa, Terra, Tidus, Squall, and other units with the tools listed above get the most from him
Without burst heals of his own, pair him with a tank, defensive support or burst healer in more HP heavy fights
