Operator Overview

"Ahahah... I am Specter, that is what the spirits call me... That kind doctor informed me that I may only receive further treatment by serving Rhodes Island... Yes, of course, my powers are yours to command."

The mentally unstable nun of Rhodes Island and The Abyssal Hunters' finest killing machine, Specter prowls  the battlefield looking for her next prey. Specter is an AoE Guard who specializes in Survival and damage output. The number of enemies she can attack simultaneously is equal to her block number, which is two targets at base level, increasing to three upon promotion to elite 2.

Specter’s playstyle is all about dishing out damage. Her first Skill: Attack up Y, increases her already good ATK, but it is her second skill: Bone Fracture, that truly makes her unique. It triggers her mental instability and she refuses to die for the duration of the Skill while increasing her ATK. The drawback to immortality is that once she regains her consciousness, Specter becomes incapacitated, and is unable to block or attack until she recovers (this can also prevent her from dying immediately when her immortality wears off, however, so it isn't all bad). Her E2 Talent, Abyssal Regeneration, also aids her survival and recovery by restoring a percentage of her Max HP every second (also quite useful for stages with "poison fog" that damages all Operators over time)

Like all AoE Guards, Specter pays for her increased damage potential with a higher Deployment Cost, making her harder to get into battle on maps with tight DP constraints, and a less valuable play if her AoE cannot be fully utilized. Despite her drawbacks, Specter has high ATK and can do some serious damage.  In the hands of an experienced Doctor, her high damage potential and tactical undeath can help lead the team to victory. This is one crazy nun you want on your squad... Just don't get on her nerves.

Newbie Tier List Explanation

Amazing end game unit with the potential to solo lanes, be an assassin, be an undying stall machine, and the classic meat grinder.

Elite Promotion Discussion

  • AoE Guards are the exception to the “What they gain at E2” rules. Upon promotion to E2, on top of their other improvements,  they gain the ability to block an extra enemy (from 2 to 3). Since their trait allows them to hit the number of enemies equal to their block amount, this represents a potential butt-kicking increase of 50%.  That is a significant increase, and is why AoE guards (like poor “Tier-Lists-Don’t-Exist-In-AK” Savage) often get overlooked and discarded at lower promotion levels.  

  • Note: Specter especially sees some niche use in some notable map-clear strategies

S2M3 S S+ S+

Specter's S2 is the strongest 5★ mastery in the game. It massively increases her damage and is required to effectively use her for helidrop immortality. Even despite her popular higher rarity counterpart, Specter continues to be one of the best units in the game, and S2M3 is a big reason why. Nothing else can do what Specter's S2 does and it absolutely should be maximized.

Profile

Specter, true identity unknown, records missing. Demonstrated extraordinary ability in combating large creatures and destroying sturdy targets, speculated to correlate with extensive prior combat experience.
Now stationed as a Guard at Rhodes Island.

Clinical Analysis

Increase Trust to 25.
Imaging tests done on Specter showed a blurry outline around her internal organs, with visible abnormal dark spots. Unusually high concentrations of Originium particles were present in her circulatory system, indicating signs of Infection and confirming her as Infected at this stage.

[Cell-Originium Assimilation] 14%
While Specter showed no physical signs of Originium crystals, her nervous system has suffered a case of severe Infection, the cause behind which remains unknown.

[Blood Originium-Crystal Density] 0.31u/L
Still within manageable range. Even then, without knowing the specific cause for her Infection, test data cannot accurately reflect her condition and are of little use.

In addition, Specter is plagued by severe mental health issues, including but not limited to: memory loss, emotional instability, and lack of self-awareness. Unfortunately, I am not a neurologist nor a psychiatrist and thus unqualified to speculate on the cause or solution, but I wish to make note of her mental condition in her file.
—Medic Operator Silence

Archive File 1

Increase Trust to 50.
It was difficult probing into Specter's past. When Rhodes Island took her in, she showed temporary lucidity until she lapsed into psychosis before treatment could be administered.
In her day-to-day life, Specter's mental condition remains unstable, thus greatly limiting her social interactions with other Operators.
Medical staff will continue administering regular tests and treatment, although success has been limited to date.

Archive File 2

Increase Trust to 100.
Based on intel gathered, Specter was once a nun residing at a convent. The matter was not investigated further due to her current mental state and Rhodes Island's present goals.
However, Dr. Kal'tsit believes Specter's past is closely linked to that convent, which is also likely hiding the truth behind her mysterious past.

Archive File 3

Increase Trust to 150.
The medical department's in-depth examination revealed Oripathy to be the cause of Specter's deteriorating physical health.
Furthermore, Specter lacked both the necessary aptitude and knowledge to wield Originium powers. This is puzzling and greatly impacts her combat ability.
Despite her difficulties, Specter was still devastatingly powerful during her missions, to the point of unsettlement. She undoubtedly has incredible room for growth and improvement.
Even more important is her polarizing attitudes in combat and in her daily life.
She is demure and quiet in battle (other than a few occasional mumbles to herself), with a mindless tendency to follow orders to the end, completely unaware of potential danger and obstacles. Her inability to react has endangered her safety more than once.
It can be concluded that Specter is a vital part of the squad, but a commander must also adapt to her single-mindedness and plan accordingly.

Archive File 4

Increase Trust to 200.
[Classified Log]
In actuality, when Specter first approached Rhodes Island, she was articulate and sincere, claiming she had just escaped confinement and wished to deliver a message.
However, she fell silent before she could finish conveying it. In her last moments of sanity, she told the Operator who retrieved her that she has once again gotten entangled in a dark conspiracy.
After she failed to tear off her habit, she then descended into madness.

Folksong of a Faraway Land:
When she prayed
The stars ceased to shimmer
And when she wept
The night let out a smile
And as she lamented
The anguish sprawled upon her madness

Description:
Specter is sure to satisfy the desires of her commander, splitting apart all hindrance with an unbridled mind for battle. In very many cases, Specter can accomplish missions close to pushing the limit alone. But afterwards, Operator Specter requires a period of tranquil rest. As well as this, one must be vigilant for threats she cannot tend to, such as aerial attacks. Please allocate sufficient backup support to her, so as to ensure absolute success in meeting the challenge.
