Sphere Recommendations

NOTE: The sphere letters below are hyperlinked to our Sphere Hub which lists all available spheres sorted by effect!
  • A Spheres - Shelke is a melee attacker frequently buffs herself & attacks. Give her ATK or BRV DMG boosting spheres. Melee/Physical ATK spheres ok!

  • C Sphere - Alphinaud is probably the most consistent C Sphere she can reliably use for stat boosts. Otherwise Nine for some added utilty (party heals)

How-to-Play Notes

These notes are thanks to the work of Renki#4255, who proactively wrote these notes, allowing Ink to edit & add them here.
  • TLDR: Shelke spams skills nonstop, essentially maintaining buffs/overhead. Her LD resets her to Quest Start status meaning resetting all skill uses, HP, and her buffs. This does mean she can remove buffs applied by allies so keep this in mind if she has anything important. Using either Optic Spindle or Transparent (S1 or EX) makes both base skills turn into their + version, increasing their damage; using either + version of her base skills reverts both to base forms. Shelke does not gain free turns from her overhead if she is already in a free turn unless you use her AA to go again, allowing her to chain turns if desired.

  • Optic Spindle grants her Amber Eyes buff for some stat bonuses. This is used more for single target damage.

  • Delta Arts grants her overhead and a BRV shield buff. Her overhead increases her HP damage, keeps her from dropping below 30% mBRV and gives her a free turn after every turn she or the enemy takes. This is used for AOE damage and to upkeep buffs.

  • Transparent is a hard hitting attack that extends her buffs by 2 turns, grants her + version of her skills, gives 4 turns of overhead effect as well as her EX buff for more stats.

  • Countertek is an instant turn rate free turn that reverts Shelke’s ability uses, current BRV, HP, and self buffs to those of Quest Start. This also dispels all enemies’ buffs before gaining BRV and filling her EX gauge. Keep in mind, this will not grant buffs other party members grant at quest start. If she has buffs from allies, they will need to be reapplied.

  • Buff Longer Thrust can be useful as it extends her buffs by 2 turns.
