Ch’en is a Swordmaster Guard who specializes in quick bursts of high damage against either priority enemies or groups. Like all swordmaster guards, her normal performance against common mooks is higher than average to make up for the burst-focused skills, but it falls off quickly with increasing enemy defense. In the right hands she represents a very capable unit on the battlefield, but a combination of high SP costs for her SP regeneration type, her multi-target skill suffering disproportionately against enemies with both resistance types, and her best nuking skill being best used as a single-target tool stop her from being a unit for everyone.

Among her peers, Ch’en boasts the highest HP and DEF by a decent margin, and this survivability edge is only reinforced by her second talent. This is important because, even with her first talent, she prefers to stay on the frontlines to recharge her skills, as all of them use offensive recovery.

Strengths

  • Nuking skills scale exceptionally well with buffs due to very high multipliers.
  • First talent applies to all offensive and defensive recovery skills.
  • Better use of downtime compared to the rest of her branch.
  • Fairly high initial SP on skills, helidrop friendly.

Weaknesses

  • Power ceiling highly dependent on Promotion Level and Mastery.
  • SP costs for skills are relatively high, sometimes leading to uncomfortably long cycling and encouraging saving.
  • High initial and recurring cost for helidrop usage.
