Sphere Recommendations

NOTE: The sphere letters below are hyperlinked to our Sphere Hub which lists all available spheres sorted by effect!
  • A Sphere - ATK & BRV DMG are his key stats, and keep in mind that spheres that trigger based on weakness damage are reliable choices for him!

  • E Spheres - Paine sphere is insane for him, to further raise his ATK debuff to 90%. Also excellent spheres are Seymour, Irvine, Yuffie, Emperor!

How-To-Play Notes

  • Use his LD right away to apply his imperils down and his Power of Chaos effect up!

  • Deadly Beast Flare maintains your Fire imperil and is also the source of Vincent's massive iBRV -90% debuff.

  • Livewire Shot maintains your Thunder imperil, as well as a massive ATK -80% debuff.

  • Nightmare Shot should be used on cooldown to reapply his Nightmare debuff and maintain his Implanted Power buff. Using it also grants you a free skill.

    • Use the free skill on AA if you aren't worried about running out of skills, otherwise use it on either skill to make him last longer.

  • Debuff Act Longer is perfect to add extra turns of duration to his powerful debuffs and some party buffs on the side!

  • Check out Sephy’s channel for some Vincent runs (and other FF7 characters)!

Team Synergy Notes

  • Vincent needs help doing as much BRV damage as possible so BRV DMG Up, BRV DMG Limit up, BRV Steal up will help with that.

  • Otherways of improving his HP damage is by giving him more BRV to work with with BRV gain per crit, BRV Retain or BRV gain after HP attack effects.

  • You can pair him with a defensive utility as his debuffs along with other mitigation can help prevent scary damage done to the party!
