Fana [Hatred] (Unreleased)

【Role】Magic Damage Dealer / Pseudo Tank

  • An attacker who can accumulate unique effects to aim for high firepower with their special moves.
  • After unlocking the awakened PS, the benefit of stacking 5 unique effects becomes significant, so prioritizing the accumulation of unique effects is highly recommended.

Magic Emperor Julius

  • A magical attacker capable of inducing action delays through action point debuffs.

  • As the barriers rely on magic, enhancing firepower contributes to improving endurance.
  • Her capabilities are self-contained, making it relatively easy to combine with various other buffs as needed.

S Tier

Asta [Black] (Unreleased)

[Role] Physical Damage Dealer


・Defender whose additional effects change depending on the presence or absence of unique effects

Jack [Clover Academy] (Unreleased)

【Role】Single-Target Physical Firepower

  • A single-target attacker capable of increasing the number of additional attacks in their special move by stacking unique buffs.
  • Similar to Academy Fuegoleon, the ideal sequence is Skill II followed by the special move. However, as the special move can apply a guaranteed stun, it can be effectively utilized even on auto-mode.
  • Due to the random targets of additional attacks, it's somewhat less favorable for situations where prioritizing handling multiple enemies is necessary.

Charlotte [Clover Academy]

【Role】Counter Buff

  • A simple supporter capable of providing counterattacks and overall attack buffs.
  • Due to its simplicity, there are fewer varieties of buff effects, with durability-related buffs that synergize with counterattacks available only through cooperative skills.
