Overview

The goddess herself joins the Light roster as Dragalia’s first 5★ Manacaster adventurer. Although side gauges are nothing new, Ilia’s is fairly unique and rewards consistent damage output with massive chunks of burst damage. Ilia is also the first adventurer capable of attacking via rolling, allowing her to weave around the battlefield while effortlessly maintaining her combo count. With a new weapon, unique playstyle and bonafide religion in her name, Ilia dances among the upper tier of Light DPS.

Strengths

Powerful Burst Potential 

Players who can keep up a consistent hail of fire enjoy rapid gauge filling and by extension more cartridge-enhanced burst options. 

Dual Immunity 

Ilia earns the status of honorary Gala unit by resisting both sides of Shadow’s afflictions and is capable of entering both types of Tartarus portals without fear.

Flashburn 

Ilia introduces a powerful new damage-over-time effect that adds to DPS without contributing to boss Paralysis resistance stacking. 

Weaknesses

Combo Reliant 

Failing to maintain combo counts means slower gauge charging, and losing cartridges to expiration is a tragic waste. Force Strikes are also enhanced based on the number of cartridges expended, which directly correlates to how quickly a player can fill Ilia's gauge.

Gauge Doesn’t Fill While Shapeshifted 

Only Ilia’s human form attacks count toward her gauge which may discourage Shapeshifts unless running power picks like Thor / Daikokuten.

Dragon Recommendations

Gala Thor is the industry standard whose constant Energy accords even more burst potential.

Daikokuten synchronizes perfectly with Ilia’s pseudo Flurry gauge fill boost. 

Corsaint Phoenix capitalizes on a Paralysis-laden meta.

Lindworm is a functional budget STR pick.

Weapon Recommendations

Gae Assail

Thundertrigger

Chimeratech Al Nasr

Budget Option: Chanzelian Caster Mk. 62

Wyrmprint Recommendations

Pair 1

Flurry picks complement Ilia's playstyle well. Assumes high Paralysis uptime.

Skill 2

Alchemic Enhancement
Lvl 1 Unlocking this skill grants the user an alchemy gauge. If the user does not have any alchemic cartridges, the alchemy gauge will fill when standard attacks, dodge attacks, or force strikes connect with enemies. The alchemy gauge charges faster when the combo count is 30 or higher. This skill can only be used when the user's alchemy gauge has one or more charges. Grants the user an alchemic cartridge for each charge of the alchemy gauge. These cartridges last for 20 seconds. Alchemic cartridges grant the user a unique force strike that consumes all remaining alchemic cartridges. The number of hits this unique force strike deals is based on the number of alchemic cartridges consumed. If the user has one or more alchemic cartridges, this skill will instead deal light damage to enemies directly ahead, and consume one alchemic cartridge.
