  • Selphie is a support with Encouragement armor, and frequently buffs and heals

How-To-Play Notes

  • Open with Wall to get your buffs active, then Drain to get the remaining buffs. Your EX will be charged, and you can generally just maintain your buffs moving forward. Make sure your LD debuff is applied before going into a Burst phase!

  • Drain is a battery/heal with AoE damage and gravity shave. This is her primary damage output, but as a support, it’s not her job to deal damage!

  • Wall is for upkeeping buffs on the party, notably the 70% Debuff Evasion. iBRV isn’t too relevant of a stat unless an ally scales their kit based off of iBRV

  • Aura recharges in just 1 Drain or LD, or 2 Walls, and applies her extremely unique EX recharge boost to the party. Turn hogs may burn through this, but it can be extended, which can be helpful for characters that extend their own buffs (Squall, Terra, Prishe, etc)

  • We are working on a list of characters whose recharge rates change if Selphie’s aura buff is applied to them

  • Rapture is her LD and is primarily used to

    1. upkeep her buff,

    2. 100% gravity shave of enemy BRV, or

    3. to enable a high damage window for the party, via launching enemies relentlessly. Her debuff allows all party members to launch, but keep in mind that AoE attacks will launch just 1 target, but decrease the debuff on all enemies. Not really an issue, just something to be mindful of!

  • Don’t forget her AA to recover her skills AND provide a fat battery & heal

EX Recharge Changes with Selphie on Team

This analysis is all thanks to Quetzalma from MateriaBot. If you are appreciative of this type of work, please consider supporting his patreon

IMPORTANT: Below are *approximations* - using high turn rate skills or allies that have speed boosts in party may disrupt the quicker recharge as high turn rate, speed up will move the character's turn up sooner than expected and before their EX is recharged.

3 skill recharge reduced to 2 skill recharge:

Agrias, Amidatelion, Ardyn, Caius, Dark Knight Cecil, Cinque, Cyan, Eald'narche, Exdeath, Gladio, Golbez, Prishe, Rinoa, Sabin*, Vayne, Xande

Future: Cissnei, Lluyd

*- validated does not work if using 2 Aura Cannons due to high turn rate

2 skill recharge reduced to 1 skill recharge:

Alisaie, Balthier, Cait Sith, Cater, Paladin Cecil, Ceodore, Ciaran, Cloud of Darkness, Deuce, Edgar, Edward, Eight, Fang, Fran, Freya, Gilgamesh, Jecht, Kefka, Krile Laguna, Leo, Leon, Lilisette, Machina, Noel, Rydia, Selphie lol, Seven, Shadow, Sherlotta, Snow, Squall, Terra, Vaan, Vivi, Wakka, WoL, Yang, Zack, Zell, Zidane,

Future: Jegran, Ursula

*note that characters like Cloud & Raijin also technically recharge faster, but their slow speed actually already gives them the Selphie effect inadvertently, so Selphie doesn't help them further*
