How-To-Play Notes

  • You’ll want to open with Strago’s AA, Set Soul of Thamasa Attack Up, to gain his valuable buff. Maintain this buff at all times! If you lose it, use your AA again! Your attack won’t execute twice unless you have this buff at the time you use the skill.

  • Quasar is his bread & butter for damage, since it’s full damage. This is your best choice whenever Strago has a free skill use!

  • BRV 2 Death is his utility skill, used to instantly break enemies that have an even amount of BRV (divisible by 2). This skill doesn’t hit as hard as Quasar, so it can be used as filler to recharge EX if you don’t need the instant break.

  • Sabre Soul recharges in 2 skill uses, allowing him to spam skills for 25 turns. While this isn’t a lot compared to most characters, Strago’s damage in AoE fights is staggering when he is set up properly and supported by your allies.

  • Grand Delta unbreaks & instant-breaks enemies twice as long as you have Soul of Thamasa buffed. This is his best form of utility. He has lots of uses of this, and it gives him a free ability use after, which should always be Quasar since it's 100% AoE.

Team Synergy Notes

  • Anyone with HP DMG up is fantastic, to further stack his already high 30% self limit. Allies with Party HP Limit Blue armor can be extremely great to further boost his damage. (link to https://dissidiacompendium.com/search/gear?search=Resonance&filter=true)

  • Hope is one of Strago’s best friends, thanks to his Magic imperil (which can further stack with elemental imperil), and his party HP limit up from his blue armor. You can also just use Hope’s LD call to drop his imperil too!

  • If Strago’s 2 skill recharge isn’t working, it’s probably because of an ally with a SPD up aura for the party. Look to remove Strago’s Buff Speed Up passive to try to restore that 2 skill recharge cycle with him!

Sphere Recommendations

NOTE: The sphere letters below are hyperlinked to our Sphere Hub which lists all available spheres sorted by effect!
  • A spheres: Strago loves BRV DMG and/or overflow spheres. Ciaran, his own, and Cyan are fantastic choices, but you can also choose any BRV DMG or ATK spheres for Strago.

Removable Passives

NOTE: Passives should generally only be removed if you lack CP space. There are very rare occasions where a character has a bad passive that disrupts their optimal gameplay.
  • BRV Attack++ HP Attack++ Dualcast Up (Strago is a skill spammer so you won’t need this in most cases!)

  • Bonus Up All (5% BREAK Bonus Up is marginal at best)

  • Buff Speed Up (SPD +10% has no other stats with it, so it can be removed if needed, but it’s usually not wise to slow down your damage dealer)
