Team Recommendations

Mono-Imaginary Team

Unless the enemies are weak to Imaginary, Silver Wolf plays an important role in the team to inflict Imaginary Weakness to enemies without the said weakness. If the enemy has Imaginary Weakness already, you can switch Silver Wolf with Welt for more damage.

Balanced Team

In this team, you will have Dan Heng • Imbibitor Lunae as the DPS, Tingyun as the buffer, Pela as the DEF shredder, and Luocha as the healer. With all the characters in the team, you should be able to manage Skill Point (SP) more easily for Imbibitor Lunae as Tingyun's buff can stay for 3 turns, Pela's Ultimate is the important thing, and Luocha's passive skill is usually enough to heal the team, allowing Imbibitor Lunae to monopolize the team's SP.
