How-to-Play Notes

These notes are thanks to the work of Renki#4255, who proactively wrote these notes, allowing Ink to edit & add them here.
  • TLDR: Vanille does not do amazing damage and is primarily there for her debuffs and dispelling utility. She is best paired with a strong support and damage dealer. She is a fantastic farmer though, so there's that.

  • Deprotect is a high turn rate attack that debuffs all enemies with a huge DEF debuff and an ATK debuff.

  • Dispel removes all buffs from all enemies. In a fight against an enemy that buffs constantly, this is best saved for debuffing, not doing damage.

  • Death recharges in just 1 skill and buffs Vanille with Oerba’s Favor and inflicts Assassination on all enemies. Oerba’s Favor provides decent stat buffs to Vanille that get stronger the more debuffs on the enemy. Assassination will remove 2 buffs from the enemy upon expiration, place 2 debuffs and do good AoE DMG to enemies thanks to C90.

  • Force Blasters grants a new buff to Vanille. This provides an increase in damage to the party if the enemy has debuffs as well as if the enemy has no buffs (Yes, they stack). If Vanille is doing her job, you should always get both bonuses.
