Sphere Recommendations

NOTE: The sphere letters below are hyperlinked to our Sphere Hub which lists all available spheres sorted by effect!
  • C Spheres: Since she has Encouragement armor, give her the Pecil treatment (refines are fine) for more battery when she hits a broken target to charge up her Relic Staff! If you lack these and want to boost the party's stats, consider Alphinaud, Maria or Llyud!

  • D Sphere: Focus on ATK & mBRV, just careful using 3+ buff conditions as she would need another party member to add another buff to her to trigger it. Same note here on 3T buffing spheres being off for 1-2 of her turns each EX cycle.

How-To-Play Notes

These notes are thanks to the work of Renki#4255, who proactively wrote these notes, allowing Cel to edit & add them here.
  • Sherlotta’s new overhead, Relic Staff, is capable of “storing” bravery that Sherlotta gained which she can then use in order to deal strong HP damage to the enemy. Sherlotta also batteries the party on every skill she has which can lead to high party damage if she is supported by a strong BRV gain ally. Her skills will mainly be used to upkeep buffs due to low damage and low skill count.

  • Light of the Crystal has instant turn rate and is a free turn. This batteries the party and grants Sherlotta her Light of the Crystal buff. This buff grants stat boosts to Sherlotta and HP regen to the party.

  • Crystal Generation batteries the party before attacking. It deals additional HP damage based on the party’s cBRV.

  • Crystal Core Wave is Sherlotta’s normal charging EX, typically requiring 3 skill uses to recharge. This attack reduces the enemy’s BRV by 90% before batterying the party. This also restores 1 use of Crystal Generation and grants Light of Creation to Sherlotta. Light of Creation boosts the party’s stats and HP Damage while granting HP and BRV regens.

  • Crystal Ray is Sherlotta’s LD. This causes a 100% gravity on all targets before Sherlotta batteries the party and deals HP damage based on her Relic Staff value. This does not consume BRV. Relic Staff is Sherlotta’s overhead. Relic Staff gains value as Sherlotta gains BRV, increasing up to 3 times Sherlotta’s HP DMG Limit (the absolute maximum BRV she can hold to deal HP DMG with on normal attacks). Relic Staff also boosts the party’s stats and BRV damage. Crystal Ray will reset the value of Relic Staff to 0, restore 1 use of Crystal Generation, and grant 3 uses of Chuck Staff.

  • Chuck Staff is Sherlotta’s HP attack variation granted by Crystal Ray. Sherlotta batteries herself before dealing HP damage based on her Relic Staff stacks. This also inflicts Light of Rejection on all targets, reducing stats and causing a Sap effect.
