Overview

Delphi is Dragalia’s first 5★ Shadow Dagger user, and an oddity at that. Despite the unattractive 60% STR handicap and titanic competition, Delphi makes his case with enemy DEF reduction and damage-over-time Skills. As the only non-Wind adventurer to inflict Poison, Delphi doesn’t compete for Bleed stacks, instead enhancing his Bleed allies with a Crit Rate Co-ability. These factors make Delphi ideal for Mercurial Gauntlet and High Jupiter, as both bosses are immobile for extended periods of time.

Strengths

Powerful DoT and Support 

Delphi’s Poison ticks are on par with Ieyasu’s Bleed and similarly isn’t resisted by most Light bosses. His debuff zone amplifies his entire team’s damage to make up for his personal Strength reduction. 

Self-charging Skills 

Delphi’s Skills continue to charge when running from High Jupiter’s attacks and even during Shapeshifts, turning a handicap into a boon.

Weaknesses

Handicapped 

Had Delphi 60% more STR, he most certainly would have reigned atop the Shadow roster alongside Gala Cleo. 

Irregular Iframes

Rigid Skill timings place higher priority on positioning, as Delphi will have to fall back on his weapon’s Skill to avoid damage.

Dragon Recommendations

Marishiten is chosen over Shinobi as the majority of Delphi’s Poison damage comes from his enhanced Force Strike, placing higher priority on raw STR than Skill Damage.

Nyarlathotep covers Delphi's awkward iframe timings with Last Bulwark. 

Juggernaut is an accessible and powerful budget option. 

Weapon Recommendations

Budget Option: The Dreamer’s Greatsword

Wyrmprint Recommendations

Pair 1

Pair 2

Pair 1: Delphi's general purpose setup, amplifying his Force Strike Poison and lowering his otherwise fixed cooldowns. 

Pair 2: 100% Skill Prep purely for immediately dropping High Jupiter's STR, allowing allies to comfortably survive the HP check without King of the Skies.
