Sphere Recommendations

NOTE: The sphere letters below are hyperlinked to our Sphere Hub which lists all available spheres sorted by effect!
  • C sphere - Focus ATK, iBRV, Battery. Theoretically, Garnet’s sphere is best on him. If you opt not to use hers, then a battery sphere is probably best like Arciela or Krile. Avoid 3T self healing triggers since they will be off more often than not (Ramza doesn’t Galvanize or BRV+++ often enough in practice). RF Garnet is certainly a good choice also.

  • D spheres - Focus ATK, iBRV only. His own is great, but the ATK spheres are all a step above, just avoid Wakka and any 3T buffing triggers.

How-to-Play Notes

  • As stated on the graphic, LD > Shout is the ideal opening to max your buffs and gain access to all of your +++ skills. In fights you can be very aggressive in, consider starting with BT phase, LD, Shout in there to get him set up and have his BT effect up for his teammates to enjoy afterward; otherwise LD, Shout/BT finisher for faster units or another BT phase works just as well.

  • Shout is best used as utility to instantly break an enemy, and it’s also important to upkeep your [Shout] buff, but as his EX extends the buff by 2, you can get more longevity out of Ramza by stretching this as much as possible.

  • Galvanize is your party heal, buff refresher however note the healing may not be enough in HP heavy fights. This can also be used to get faster access to his EX to extend his [Shout] debuff.

  • EX whenever it’s up, and it’s especially great launching enemies with this

  • Warning: always keep an eye on Ramza’s buffs. Avoid situations where your party needs to be healed, but his Shout buff is at 1. This will generally result in wave resets

Team Synergy Notes:

  • Pay attention to make sure his 2 party buffs don’t push off important ally buffs, and then just enjoy his wide role coverage but also bring units with a lot of personal buffs or another good buffer

  • Ramza does a lot, so creating a balanced team is most important. You can check our team building page in our Beginner’s area if you’d like information on what other roles your team might need.

Bad passives (if you lack enough CP to equip important passives):

  • Spite

  • Enhanced Break (10% Break Bonus for himself when an ally breaks…)

  • BRV Attack +/++/+++ Up (you won’t use this very often, and rarely for BRV shaving)

Average Passives (keep these unless you are really hungry for CP)

  • BRV Initiative

  • Back Attack
