Sphere Recommendations

NOTE: The sphere letters below are hyperlinked to our Sphere Hub which lists all available spheres sorted by effect!
  • A Sphere - ATK or BRV DMG. Magic ATK also works. He can also hit for weakness which opens up usable spheres a bit more!

  • E Sphere - Boost his ATK! His own sphere can be useful, but so are others like Yuffie, Emp, Kefka!

How-To-Play Notes

  • Lackluster before any enemy dips below 80%, gets a little better but performs his best when an enemy is below 50% as it upgrades his LD buff and lets him do a stronger follow up after any skill he uses!

  • Chainspell does 2 single target HP attacks, but can execute twice if the target has under 80% HP after the first skill resolves. If you can squeeze out another Seymour turn with it, use it as it has high turn rate (hold the button to check where/if his next turn will move up).

  • Lance of Atrophy is another 2 HP single target attack, but has 2 instances of splash making it a solid AoE option. After the 2 HP attacks, it can trigger his Chainspell skill as a follow up (without using a skill use) if the target was under 80% HP

  • Requiem is his EX and thanks to c85 packs much more of a punch with 3 Split HP attacks and depending on the target's HP after these HP attacks, will do more follow ups. If the target is under:

    • 80% - He will follow up with an 8 BRV + HP attack with 100% splash

    • 50% - He will also follow up with a BRV gain + 3 BRV + HP 2x attack. He will also do his Total Annihilation follow up if his LD buff is active which is a 4 AoE BRV + Split HP 3x

    • Because of this, pair him with units who can fill his EX gauge (and move his turn forward as a bonus - Aphmau, Rem, Ashe)

  • Cross Cleave is his new LD ability which removes enemy buffs, delays the enemies 2 turns, grants Seymour his new buff and inflicts Rest in Peace to enemies.

    • Rest in Peace increases the BRV and HP DMG taken by 10/20/30% depending on if the enemy is at or above 80%, under 80% or below 50% max HP

    • His LD buff has 2 forms: Readying to annihilate... when all enemies are above 50% HP and Ready to annihilate! when any enemy is below 50%. If the enemy below 50% dies or heals above the threshold and no other enemy is below 50% it will revert.

    • When attacking an enemy below 50% mHP and his LD buff is active, he will do a new follow up - Total Annihilation: 4 AoE BRV + Split HP 3x

  • Because of his kit design, he can be a unit you swap out for a friend unit right away so when he comes back the enemies will probably be at a low enough threshold where he can hit the ground running with follow ups
