Avoid low HP trigger spheres because she won't always be low HP, and you should keep her healthy, it's not like she has last stand or any protection within her kit (quite the opposite)
Gameplay Notes:These notes are thanks to the work of Renki#4255, who proactively wrote these notes, allowing Ink to edit & add them here.
Gameplay Tips: Rinoa has 2 stances, Angelo and Angel Wings. While in Angel Wings, Rinoa has increased personal damage while her HP+ and BRV+ variants take some of her life. Angelo however provides lower personal damage but much greater auras for the party. When going into a Burst Phase, ensure Rinoa is in Angelo stance. Also watch your health in Angel stance, as Rinoa will chip off HP and regen 10% back on her next turn, so make sure she has a healer/Last Stand, or that there is no risk of HP dropping.
Angelo Cannon does damage, heals the party and provides her with her Angelo Recover buff and cancels Angel Wing if she has it. Angelo Recover provides numerous buffs for the party as well as both BRV regen and HP Regen. This also changes her HP and BRV to her Angelo variants
Angel Wing removes Angelo Recover, batteries Rinoa and gives her a free turn. Angel Wing provides Rinoa with a large list of buffs and gives her access to her HP+ and BRV+ HP attacks.
Angel Wing Meteor is a strong AoE shaving EX that provides her Angel Wings buff. If used while in Angelo stance, it also provides her Seething Power buff which provides more BRV regen.
Wishing Star removes Angel Wings and gives Rinoa her Angelo Recover buff as well as Pet’s Warmth. This buff changes all her abilities to Magic damage and provides some more strong buffs enabling her to deal even more damage as well as more buffs to her auras.
BRV+ (Angelo) and HP+(Angelo) both provide battery to the party along with the damage dealt.
BRV+(Angel Wing) and HP+(Angel Wing) are Rinoa’s most used attacks as they deal the most damage as well as increasing her EX gauge by 20% when used. They do reduce her HP by 10% and 20% of her current HP respectively so keep this in mind when attacking.
