Sphere Recommendations

NOTE: The sphere letters below are hyperlinked to our Sphere Hub which lists all available spheres sorted by effect!
  • C Sphere - Avoid the self healing condition. Alphinaud is probably best, but Ceodore is also very interesting to turn him into a healer. Just be careful if you Brave Reels an unbroken target, it won’t trigger. Arciela & Sherlotta are also great choices to augment his BRV regen for the party.

  • D Sphere - Focus ATK, and his own is premium for him! Any of the other ATK spheres are still good.

  • E Sphere - Focus ATK to further power his battery. Avoid Ranged ATK since that doesn’t help his BRV gains based on the raw ATK stat. Usual suspects in Seymour Yuffie Emperor, with an honorable mention for Amidatelion to further boost his BRV Regen.

How-To-Play Notes

  • Open with his EX which is fully charged at quest start. From there, it will take 2 skill uses to recharge his EX.

  • Next, use his LD to apply his powerful Status Reels debuff. This skill isn’t tied to a buff, so you’ll generally want to use it at the start of a wave, or during a crucial part of the fight. Status Reels has applies an additional 10% HP DMG up attached with the most recent upgrade making it even more useful regardless of the bonus effect.

    • Your free skill use is probably going to AA when it's about to expire, S1 for damage or S2 to refresh buffs (or not, it's Wakka)

  • Dark Attack applies Blind to all enemies for 2T and does slightly more damge than S2 due to splash

  • Brave Reels is how Wakka buffs himself (sometimes)

  • Attack All is a nice boost for the party and it lasts even longer now

Removable Passives

  • BRV Attack+ Up (never used)

  • HP Attack+ Up (unlikely that you’ll ever use this, he has good longevity)

  • BRV Guard Up (generally useless)

  • Quick Brave Reels

  • Buff Speed Up
