Character Review

Xanthia is a unique attacker in ASTRA Knights of Veda who excels at dealing continuous damage over time (DoT) through strategically placed area-of-effect (AoE) attacks. Her playstyle revolves around setting up these damaging zones, then quickly swapping out with another character before reappearing when the AoE dissipates. This hit-and-run tactic allows Xanthia to rack up impressive damage while mitigating her own vulnerability.

Furthermore, Xanthia's skills boast an enemy attraction effect, synergizing perfectly with other AoE-focused characters like Atterisee. Imagine luring enemies into a poisonous field laid down by Atterisee, then following up with Xanthia's AoE pull to maximize damage dealt.

Recommended Build

The ideal weapon for Xanthia is the Planetary Tuner. This weapon enhances her critical rate while lowering enemy resistance, maximizing her damage output. However, if the Planetary Tuner isn't readily available, the 4-star Sunlight of Noon offers a compelling alternative. This weapon boasts a cooldown reduction effect when attacking slowed enemies, a perfect fit for Xanthia's own slowing abilities.

The Silent Slave Knight relic set is Xanthia's go-to choice for an offensive build. This set significantly boosts the power of all her skills, turning her into a DPS powerhouse.

Xanthia demands more than just button mashing. Her hit-and-run tactics with AoE DoT fields require strategic timing and team synergy. Mastering the swap mechanic and maximizing her damage potential through equipment and relics like the Silent Slave Knight set unlocks Xanthia's true power as a DoT dominator. If you enjoy a more tactical approach to combat, Xanthia is a rewarding addition to your ASTRA Knights of Veda roster.
