Supplementary Notes to the Infographic Analysis:

The infographic covers the key critical points and should be reviewed prior to delving into the in-depth notes

Gameplay Notes:

  • Dualcast is your HP+ variant and it is as strong as Ardyn's or Noctis' base skills, don't underestimate it! Only 120% overflow, but it's splash means you can deal great damage with a battery!

  • Both of Palom's skills have short usage, so use them to keep his buffs up, and when you need a strong BRV shave. As you use his skills, his self buffs go up a lot, including overflow for his entire kit. So do ramp up accordingly once you're on the boss wave.

  • Stardust is your ONLY way to shave AoE, so be mindful of that limitation, but it does hit hard, so enjoy that.

Team Synergy Notes:

  • Palom just deals damage, so classic team building model here: pair him with a support/healer as well as another character that can disrupt the boss mechanics. If boss mechanics are covered, augment your damage or support instead.

Sphere Recommendations:

  • A spheres - Focus ATK, BRV DMG, & mBRV

    • Too many options to recommend, just note that Palom can easily hit weakness damage!

  • E sphere - Focus ATK / Magic ATK

    • Paine's is obviously the best as Palom hits weakness constantly. You can also give him Seymour or Kefka - just try to boost his ATK as much as possible if you're planning to sphere him.
