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.
  • Steiner’s new LD increases his utility to the party making him into a hybrid damage dealer and support. You want to use his skills to maintain his Own Chivalry buff and keep up his LD buff to ensure the party is both protected and batteried constantly. Steiner should open with his EX before starting his skill spam.

  • Power Break (IX) grants Steiner his Own Chivalry buff and inflicts a generic stat debuff on the enemy. Own Chivalry grants generic stat boosts to Steiner.

  • Spellblade grant’s Own Chivalry and generic stat boosts to Steiner. If Steiner already has Own Chivalry, he can use Spellblade+ for an extra HP attack.

  • Stock Break is Steiner’s normal charging EX, typically requiring 3 skill uses to refresh. Stock Break batteries the party and grants Steiner his Captain of the Knights of Pluto buff. This buff grants stat boosts to himself and the party.

  • Flare Sword is Steiner’s LD. Flare Sword batteries the party and grants Steiner his Right behind you, mister! buff. This grants a strong defense buff to the party, HP regen, a boost to HP damage, a reduction to HP damage taken, and a strong battery every field turn.
