How-To-Play Notes

  • Open with Maria’s LD to apply her debuff to all enemies. If it’s a trash wave, consider opening with S2 to buff your party’s attack. Basically, you want to upkeep buffs on the party, and upkeep your debuffs on the enemy. You’ll use your LD again to refresh Hitote, generally when it’s at 1, so you don’t lose the HP DMG up that it provides after the enemy’s next turn.

    • Hitote is an incredible debuff, which uniquely shaves the enemy down to the 0 BRV BEFORE their turn. There's nothing else like it in the game

  • Proper Shot is for a big battery effect, splashing damage onto non targets.

  • Arrow Rain has more utility, smaller battery, shaving AoE, but the damage is split. It will heal your party which is very helpful, and also buff your party’s ATK. Note that if they already have a better ATK up buff, Maria’s buff won’t be applied to them.

  • Explosive Bow recharges in 2 skill uses, providing convenient gravity after an enemy turn, while more importantly providing battery.

    • Free skill use is generally used on Arrow Rain, unless you’re worried about capping. Don’t forget AA for a 10% ATK boost and party heal if you need it!
