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:

  • Note: Xande's splash can't exceed his HP DMG cap, even if he deals over 200k and his Syrcus effect is maxed. His cap for splash will be 99k without HG Armor, 114998 with HG Armor.

  • As stated in the graphic, open exclusively with Libra Combo and, if all enemies are broken, you can use a Destruction Quaga (to unbreak and delay them) into a free Libra Combo. Avoid S2 until you get to 5 overhead stacks, simply to maximize your splash damage as soon as possible (he splashes on all attacks)

  • Following the first EX use, Xande should upkeep his buff with Quaga, and his debuff with Libra Combo. From this point, your EX will generally recharge in 2 skill uses.

  • Make sure at this point, if you plan to use your LD, use it immediately after your EX, otherwise you will waste the EX charge from your free skill. Though in some quests, the unbreak may be important to give more time to set up a party battery or heal from another ally and give your team some breathing room. This won’t hurt Xande if you need to do it, he has plenty of skill uses.

Team Synergy Notes:

  • Give him great support/battery, and generic buffs are perfectly fine.

  • Just be careful, as your third slot should be a big damage dealer that will benefit from his imperil/enchant, so your support slot will have to be a good all around support/healer like Beatrix, Basch, Kimahri, Nine, etc. You can opt for a non-healer like Ciaran if your damage dealer can also heal (more options in the future like Firion, Ramza).


  • A spheres - ATK & BRV DMG are the primary focus above all else. Remember that Xande can hit weak damage consistently, so those triggers might be more appropriate for him (like Rydia as an example). Mixing in one mBRV sphere is fine as well, especially since you’ll usually run Xande with a strong battery.

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

  • DEF passives

  • BRV Attack++ HP Attack++ (only if you plan to spam skills, he can support it for 31 of his own turns, ~93 turn quest)
