Samir loves solving puzzles and riddles. In fact, during her free time she not only plays sudoku books and reads detective fiction, but designs board games as well.

Dual EM Stars
Tower of Fantasy Samir wields a Dual volt pistol and a DPS-type weapon called Dual EM Stars that hits like crazy when dealing damage, especially using her attacks in chains and combos. Undeniably, her highly versatile kit makes her a daunting opponent for in-game enemies and in PvP.
Harness her speed and ranged skills for combat by taking a look at our strategy guide and mastering her weapon in the game. Here, we list all of its main stat before leveling Dual EM stars up:
Type: Volt -When the weapon is fully charged, the next attack will paralyze targets for 1 second. Electrify them for 6 seconds, negating all buffs and dealing damage equal to 144% of ATK. Targets can't receive any buffs for the next 6 seconds.
Different weapon resonance effects can be activated depending on the two active weapons that are being used. You will have to equip at least two of the same type of weapons to trigger the resonance.
In Samir’s case, triggering Attack Reso using another DPS-type weapon will increase the final damage by 10%. In team play, this increases to 40%.
Tower of Fantasy Samir Skills
Samir’s swift and rapid combos with her pistols coupled with her aerial strikes that literally make the bullets rain hitting the surrounding enemies. These are only a few reasons why she’s a very powerful DPS. And despite hitting lower damage in comparison to other big-numbered DPS characters such as King, her skills are so fast-moving that she’s arguably doing more.
Ranged attackers like Samir can also make use of Kiting, a term which refers to a technique used when killing targets and positioning yourself at a distance. When an enemy comes near, you dodge, run and reposition again.
|While on the ground, tap normal attack to attack 5 times in a row.|
• First Attack: Deal a total damage equal to 47.1% of ATK + 2.
• Second Attack: Deal total damage equal to 35.8% of ATK + 2.
• Third Attack: Deal total damage equal to 119.7% of ATK +6.
• Fourth Attack: Deal total damage equal to 113.1% of ATK + 6.
• Fifth Attack: Deal total damage equal to 154% of ATK + 8 and launch the target.
|While airborne, tap normal attack to fire continuously at the ground, dealing damage equal to 50.6% of ATK + 3. Significantly, each hit consumes 150 endurance.|
|Hold attack button to maintain constant fire, each hit dealing damage equal to 23% of ATK + 1 base damage.|
|While airborne, tap and hold normal attack to trigger Phantom Kick. Then knock the target down and deal damage equal to 70.5% of ATK + 4. Upon landing, deal damage equal to 98.7% of ATK + 5 to nearby targets and launch them.|
Rising Lightning Kick
|Tap normal attack after dodging to strongly suspend targets and deal damage equal to 122.6% of ATK + 6.|
|Fire an energy shield at the target location, reflecting beams within the barrier. Subsequently, deal damage equal to 269.8% of ATK + 14, and the last hit strongly suspends targets.|
Cooldown: 45 seconds.
Domain of Thunder
|Create a Domain of Thunder at the target location upon switching to this weapon, strongly suspending targets within the area and dealing a total of 238.3% of ATK + 13 damage over 3 attacks to them while dispelling their buffs. Altogether, the domain lasts for 3.5 seconds and deals damage equal to 42.4% of ATK + 2 to a target every 0.5 seconds.|
Tower of Fantasy Samir Pros and Cons
Samir is an incredible Volt-type unit that provides high DPS through her skill, normal and dodge attacks. Along with it, you also would want to take advantage of her weapon’s high Charge ability of 10.70 which makes it easier for you to fill up your Discharge bar.
Dual EM stars’ ranged attack is also one of its main strengths, allowing you to target enemies from a distance when things get messy in a close-quarter combat. This weapon also grants you the ability to perform powerful airborne attacks and continuously shoot at the ground that has a large AoE, and since volt weapons electrify enemies and stun them, this creates an opening for your other character swaps. Samir unfortunately has a low Shatter rank of only 6.0 and is not very good at breaking shields. Players are also known to complain about her Discharge ability’s targeting logic and the Domain of Thunder not going to the opponent’s location sometimes.
Despite this, it doesn't change the fact that Samir can deal large number of hits from her Normal attacks alone. And, at the end of the day, it is a gacha game, so pull for the character that you want and enjoy!

Tower of Fantasy Samir Best Matrices
Matrices are important for a weapon to further amplify your damage and other abilities in-game. On that note, since Samir is a very effective damage dealer, here are the best matrices recommended for her from SR-SSR:
|Sobek (SR)||This increases the damage dealt by for each enemy nearby. This can stack up three times.|
|Samir (SSR)||This greatly increases Samir's Dual EM Stars damage when hitting a target.|
At 2 pc: Deal more damage upon hitting a target, each time by 1.5%, up to 10/13/16/20 stacks. Buff stacking time: 2 seconds.
At 4pc: Each attack onto locked-on targets deals extra damage equal to 10%/12.5%/15%/17.5% of ATK.
Best Team Comp
Samir - Crow - Meryl
When forming a team with Samir, you should know that her best role is to be your character that's dealing most of the damage. Crow's Thunderblades is a good opener wile Meryl is there to make up for Samir's low Shatter ability.
That aside, you can also opt for King and his Scythe because of his high Shatter rank if you don't have Meryl. King's weapon is also a DPS-type meaning that’s going to increase the final damage by 10%. In team play, this increases to 40%.
Alternatively, if you still don't have these SSR Simulacra, you can choose Echo as another option to replace Crow. Echo's Thunderous Halberd also allows you to maintain your distance while firing long-range. Additionally, Ene is an Ice-type unit that's also known for her Shatter ability. You can use her to temporarily replace Meryl, but of course the damage output will be lower.
