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:

  • Zidane’s Mug ability following his EX use has incredible utility, being a free & instant turn, having a gravity based attack, dealing an HP attack while maintaining his BRV.

  • Stellar Circle is best used with low BRV, while Free Energy is great when you have 50% BRV or more.

Team Synergy Notes:

  • Stack his SPD Down debuff with other framed SPD debuffers like Keiss, Arciela, Ramza, and Fran

  • Give him BRV Regen with Ramza, Wakka, Lenna, Rosa, etc. Be careful giving him 3 or more ally buffs (like Penelo) as you will need to pay more attention to managing buffs

  • As he has a lot BRV gains and also BRV hits, it’s nice to give him overflow boosts with Selphie & Aerith, among others

Sphere Recommendations:

  • A sphere: Focus on buffing ATK, BRV DMG, & overflow

  • E spheres: As a frequent debuffer, he’s up for all E sphere triggers - so target attack, and probably avoid more generic debuffs since he works great stacking debuffs with others!

    • Spheres from Seymour and Emperor are solid choices. Yuffie’s is great as well, but Zidane has high mBRV already, so it might be better saved for someone else.

    • Debuff aura spheres like Faris & Fujin are also quite nice!
