Sphere RecommendationsNOTE: The sphere letters below are hyperlinked to our Sphere Hub which lists all available spheres sorted by effect!
C Sphere: Stay away from spheres that trigger from healing unless you bring a healing ally as Rydia herself doesn't heal. Alphinaud is the easiest slotted with best effect, but you can add Ceodore sphere to give her slight healing utility.
How-to-Play NotesThese notes are thanks to the work of Renki#4255, who proactively wrote these notes, allowing Cel to edit & add them here.
Once Water Weak is applied, Water Resist Down will refresh Water Weak instead of applying Water Resist Down.
Contrast Burst (FR) summons a super cute (but not green-haired) Terra and wants
Party members evading an attack (+50% once per enemy attack)
Party member selects a water skill (+20%, +50% if Rydia does it)
Team Synergy Notes:
Rydia has some really interesting tools with forced Water Weak and party Evasion.
Her FR doubles down on these points as she works amazingly well with evasion/counter units such as Galuf, Eight or Edge to name a few.
Rydia herself can enable the evasion to assist trap units like Firion, Maria, Ace, Sice, etc.
DO NOT pair her with units that want to get hit to counter like Beatrix, Auron, Gladio, etc.
