Supplementary Notes to the Infographic Analysis:

The infographic covers the key critical points and should be reviewed prior to delving into the in-depth notes

Gameplay Notes:

  • If you need more room for passives, do remove her Devil's Laugh & her BRV+/HP+ character board improvements. Totto's LD upgrades her to +++ & allows her to easily maintain Rage mode, making these passives 99%+ useless.

  • Make sure Shantotto doesn't lose her Rage buff, simply use any of BRV/HP variants to boost it back to 10 turns!

  • Use Rage Aero with low to mid BRV, it is your go-to hard hitting ability, generally dealing over 100k DMG to a single target.

  • Use Rage Bio to keep enemies debuffed with poison. This is also a good skill to use when you have higher BRV amount due to its increased overflow vs Aero.

  • Use Rage Divine Malison whenever it's up, it's excellent vs AoE and is her primary BRV shaving tool. This generally recharges with just 1 skill use, but sometimes her high turn rates cause her to jump making her use an HP+++/Rage HP to finish charging it.

  • Salvation Scythe can be used for a clutch AoE paralysis when you need it most. It's nice to save one before you summon to benefit the most from the 100% DEF Down attached to the debuff. If you do have her BT, no worry on saving one, as you can use the free use LD in the BT window before summoning.

  • Vidohunir, if you are lucky enough to have access to it, is best before summoning to get the best use out of its fantastic BT effect.

Team Synergy Notes:

  • She has value with her framed debuff for other elemental attackers, as she can easily apply it AoE and bosses often don't cleanse framed debuffs, so it will stick around, unlike many generic imperils. Note that you'll want to avoid too many debuffs as the generic imperil may push off her Poison debuff, which is annoying to reapply AoE as it is only single target.

  • Note that Shantotto has 4 debuffs, 3 framed. Be very careful running her with other framed debuffers (Amidatelion is the worst choice) as her LD debuff will not be applied if the enemy already has 6 framed debuffs.

  • Shantotto is otherwise very flexible, appreciating boosts to mBRV & overflow in addition to the typical ATK aura.

Sphere Recommendations:

  • A spheres: Focus on boosting ATK, mBRV, BRV DMG, or overflow. She's up for most triggers thanks to constantly hitting weakness DMG. Avoid anything that triggers based on a BREAK.

  • E sphere: Same notes as A sphere, but avoid inflicting more debuffs since you are likely to push off her Poison debuff inadvertently if you do.
