Carnelian is a Phalanx Caster with high survivability, damage output, and strong crowd control capabilities. She stands out in her ability to overcharge all of her skills, gaining additional effects once she completes a second charging cycle. She is one of the closest casters to competing against Eyjafjalla in AOE damage output, while also having a bind strong enough to outdo the likes of Magallan. Her main and inherent downside is having zero output while skills are inactive, but she makes up for it for increased survivability while charging and good cycling on her powerful skills.

Trait:Normally does not attack, but has +200% DEF and +20 RES; When skill is active, attacks deal AoE Arts damage

Carnelian has a considerable edge in the ATK compared to the rest of the branch, with other aspects being rather standard. She places a much higher focus on dealing damage than her counterparts, while still maintaining high survivability from the trait.

Strengths

  • High AOE damage output with skills with strong cycling
  • Has strong crowd control capabilities
  • Great survivability while skills are charging allows for more aggressive placement
  • Heals a significant amount of HP with every skill activation

Weaknesses

  • Does not attack while skills are inactive
  • Defensive capabilities are lost while skills are active
  • Poor initial SP and being built around overcharging makes her a poor candidate for helidropping
  • When overcharging is not yet finished, using the skill wastes SP with no additional benefit
