Supplementary Notes to the Infographic Analysis:

The infographic covers the key critical points and should be reviewed prior to delving into the in-depth notes

Gameplay Notes:

  • Open with Hell’s Judgment into Shockwave Pulsar to max all her buffs

  • Protean Swords+ hits hard and is good for BRV shaving AoE while also working toward recharging her EX.

    • Note alternating hits! Whichever enemy you aim at, will be hit last in the chain.

    • 2 enemies: Aim at A: ABABABABA

    • 3 enemies: Aim at B: ACBACBACB

  • Hell’s Judgment+ is her go-to damage skill, and is always what you use after EX for free, unless there is only one enemy. Use this to make sure enemies always have her useful debuff (DEF & Sap debuff)

  • Apocalypse recharges in either 3 skill uses, or 2 skills & 3 BRV/HP variants. Use Hell’s Judgment+ after for free if multiple enemies, otherwise Protean Swords+

    • BT phase recommended skill setup: S2 > LD > EX > S2 > S2 > BT

    • Note that Junction Griever will not decrease in Burst, so following the BT phase, she will have 3 turns back to back, but the first skill will not be free use.

  • Use Shockwave Pulsar specifically to maintain your buff. Just be sure that your buff has at least 2 turns on it before you use Apocalypse, otherwise your free skill use won’t have her buff

Team Synergy Notes:

  • Look to pair her with Balthier, Sherlotta, Kurasame, and eventually Paladin Cecil for their HP DMG up boosts!


  • A Spheres - Focus ATK, BRV DMG primarily. ATK & iBRV spheres are great choices also. Kuja RF sphere is a great budget option

  • E Sphere - Focus ATK & MATK. Seymour, Kefka, Emperor are some of the best. Refined Faris sphere is a mediocre budget option. Her own sphere shouldn’t be put on anyone for now, it’s terrible and uses a precious debuff slot on a below average effect

Bad passives (if you lack enough CP to equip important passives):

  • Hell's Judgment Focused Attack (only good versus single enemies… and you probably won’t use Ultimecia in your party in that case)

  • Maelstrom Up (just note that this is excellent for BRV shaving you will likely use this in longer quests where longevity is important

  • HP Attack+ HP Attack++ Up (ONLY remove if planning to go skill spam and complete in under 40 turns)

  • Note: Buff Speed Up does not affect her EX recharge. You would need to remove Buff Attack Speed Up to lower her recast to 2 skills + 2 BRV/HP, but reducing your damage dealer’s ATK by 40% is not advised.

  • DEF passives
