EX+ Level Summary:

Gameplay Notes:

  • Proper Shot is your classic single target attack into splash. It keeps her buffs up and has more party battery than any other skill in her kit. Its high turn rate can help you jump up to set up another party battery ahead of a boss attack if you need it. Note it is the only wind attack in her kit.

  • Arrow Rain is your go-to AoE shave (the only one in her kit), providing an excellent party heal. This gets her framed buff up, and the small party ATK buff up also.

  • Explosive Bow charges quickly enough for Maria to spam skills. Her trap effect will help shave enemies and avoid breaks with its battery.

  • Don't forget to use your AA if you need it! Good party heal with an ATK boost for the party when you need it.

Team Synergy Notes:

  • When it comes to teams with Maria, she's a bit more locked than most. Pair her with a strong physical attacker and an aura support for a well balanced team.

  • Her banner is actually a great example of a good Maria team. Ardyn is a physical attacker with no ATK generic buff of his own. Lilisette is a support with good auras to help Maria.

Sphere Recommendations:

  • A spheres - Focus on ATK & mBRV/iBRV to boost her batteries and damage. Too many good options to recommend any specifics.

  • C spheres - Same focus, but avoid those that trigger for 3T after self healing, since her heal only comes from one skill and she doesn't have regen.

    • For more stats, Alphinaud's is great

    • For more healing, Porom & Rosa give her a party HP regen to augment her Arrow Rain. Otherwise Nine is interesting since she converts overhealing to battery.

    • For more battery, Arciela & Sherlotta are nice, but really any will work fine on Maria

  • D spheres - They all work well on Maria, but really focusing at the top of the list to augment her ATK aura is best.
