Sphere Recommendations

NOTE: The sphere letters below are hyperlinked to our Sphere Hub which lists all available spheres sorted by effect!
  • A Sphere - Focus on BRV DMG & ATK... 10% BRV DMG > 15% MATK > 10% ATK & mBRV > 10% ATK > 5% ATK & anything

  • D Sphere - Focus on any ATK sphere, avoid Wakka since she only has 5 buffs during her LD windows. Hope/Queen are best, the others are great.

  • E Sphere - She debuffs on her main skills, so most are completely fine for her. Seymour's sphere is absolutely best for her, since she only needs to debuff on 5 turns for the effect to be always on, which is useful if you max out framed debuffs late in the fight! For utility or specific lufenia orbs that require 4 debuffs (2 on each enemy), Laguna sphere and spamming S2 got you covered, otherwise boost her stats!

How-To-Play Notes


  • Always keep an eye on Terra’s Magic stacks above her head, max is 9.

    • When 5+ : Access to + skills, but + skills will consume 4 each.

    • Stacks do not decrease while she has her LD buff.

    • EX will max her stacks up to 9

    • When < 5 : Downgraded skills, but skills will add 5 each. Try to use AA to get her back above 5 if this happens if EX isn't up and you don't have space to LD

  • Meltdown+ will probably be her most used skill with 3 HP attacks and splash which is great for 2 or more enemies.

  • Meteor+ can be useful in Single Target fights or Main boss and side enemy fights where the side enemies can/must be ignored with 4 HP attacks.

  • EX with her C85 is a stronger ability to use with it's buff also being much stronger. It now has 2 instances of splash and upgrades her HP command into Dualcast.

    • Dualcast is now Instant Turn Rate to help you take EVEN MORE TURNS!

  • Chaos Wave can be used whenever you need it. She will get 5 turns in a row, 4 being instant turn and free skill uses. Try to maximize her damage in these windows using the considerations above. While you can save these all for a BT effect to be up, but sometimes you need breathing room in a fight to heal back up and LD offers more time to break the enemies, pushing them back.

    • Linked attackers, follow up units, Selphie's Rapture and HP DMG Limit supports are her best friends as you can snapshot buffs/debuffs, so long as mechanics allow it, to completely overwhelm enemies.

  • Trance Ultima is a single target attack, so be mindful if you are trying to keep damage even. The setup here is incredibly flexible, just consider:

    • Ending the BT phase with LD means she will cut into her 10T BT effect for her allies, so depending on party comp, you might want to the eat entire effect with Terra, or save it for allies, or go half and half.

Removable Passives

  • BRV Attack+ Up (you’ll never press this button)

  • HP Attack+ Up (you’ll also never press this button)

  • BRV Attack++ Up (seriously? Yea, you’re still not pressing it)

  • HP Attack++ Up (potential record for most number of useless character board passives)

  • Kill BRV Gain (one of the worst passives in the game)

  • Break Bonus Up (marginal effect)

Special Notes

  • Cel's favorite unit and you will probably notice a lot of Terra on infographics and their channel: Terra Bullying Lufenias (and Spiritus)
