Character Guide

Combat Guide

Tao, from Atelier Resleriana, might not be an immediately impressive character. While most heroes boast unique strengths, Tao seems to require specific conditions to shine. Notably, his damage relies heavily on enemies being inflicted with status effects. This can be a drawback, considering powerful enemies like Strike Tower are completely immune. Additionally, unlike characters like Odelia (Ancient Machina Doll) who can inflict status effects themselves, Tao cannot.

However, Tao shouldn't be underestimated. He excels as a secondary attacker, providing consistent damage with his Skill 2, "Ensnaring Lure." This skill not only deals damage but also reduces the enemy's resistance to status effects for two turns. This sets the stage for your primary attacker, who ideally possesses strong burst capabilities, to capitalize on inflicted ailments.

In this way, Tao becomes a valuable asset for maximizing your team's overall damage output. Compared to other low-rarity attackers like Viorate, Vayne, and Cordelia, Tao's focus on consistent Skill 2 damage makes him a strong choice for general content outside of tower battles. Remember, different characters excel in different areas!

Recommended Memoria


To maximize Tao's potential, focus on using him as a secondary attacker alongside a character with strong burst capabilities. By strategically applying debuffs with your team and then unleashing Tao's Skill 2 or Burst Skill, you can take down enemies with impressive efficiency.
