Sphere Recommendations

NOTE: The sphere letters below are hyperlinked to our Sphere Hub which lists all available spheres sorted by effect!
  • A Spheres - Focus on BRV DMG & ATK. Any BRV DMG sphere outside of Leo/Kuja are great, especially Edgar thanks to his gold debuff. Some of the standouts for ATK are his own, or Jecht/Noel/Ardyn as they either have high ATK boosts, or target multiple useful stats.

How-To-Play Notes

  • Open with Fervent Blow, into Octaslash to get all of his stacks & buffs maxed.

  • Fervent Blow offers AoE BRV + HP attacks followed by single target BRVs + HPs. It's high turn rate (HTR) can be used to sneak in an extra turn in sometimes.

  • Octaslash can be used for the free skill after EX, as it does more HP attacks than Fervent Blow (unless against 3 targets, then they're equivalent).

  • Black Materia (recharge 2 skill uses & 1 HP++ or 3 skill uses) should be used to maintain his Reunion buff. Do note that if instant BREAK is required in a fight he's used in, you can hold off on it until it’s needed but be sure to keep an eye on Reunion and plan accordingly!

    • The HP++ in his recharge is for longevity, or you can opt for more damage and use 3 skills to recharge his EX.

    • Free skill can be used on S2 as mentioned above or on AA if he needs the extra support.

  • Scintilla is used to upkeep his Cellular Erosion debuff and Bringer of Despair buff. With the gold framed debuff, no need to worry about bosses cleansing the debuff off, they can’t! It’s good to maintain Cellular Erosion as often as possible. The target takes 30% more BRV damage and gives Sephiroth some BRV thanks to the sap effect - but also make sure that the buff doesn’t drop either!


Team Synergy Notes

  • Make sure he enters the last wave at 100% HP to trigger his c50 passive & respective artifacts.

  • Pair him with supports to maintain his damage. He likes pretty much any kind of support making him a flexible damage dealer.

  • Outside of his debuffs, offers nothing to the party so mechanics may need to be handled by the teammates you pair him with.


Removable Passives

NOTE: Passives should generally only be removed if you lack CP space. There are very rare occasions where a character has a bad passive that disrupts their optimal gameplay.
  • BRV Attack+ since LD gives BRV++

  • HP Attack+ since LD gives HP++

  • Break Speed Up (generally don’t remove speed from your damage dealers)

  • DEF Passives
