Overview

Summer Alex takes Kimono Elisanne’s scorchrend-friendly kit and cranks it up to eleven. Retaining the skill chain aspect of her Gala version, Summer Alex uses a rather roundabout way to apply scorchrend. By applying and dispelling Scorchbloom, Alex’s most notable use is to enable scorchrend punisher comps in endgame content. To top it all off, she’s another addition to the strength amp family, doing well to expand the mechanic’s viability in the long term.

Strengths

Premier Scorchrend Enabler 

Alex ensures that scorchrend is active at all times to enable Cutie Competition loadouts. Compared to K!Eli, Alex’s scorchrend has both a higher affliction rate and longer duration, courtesy of two instances of Scorchrend Edge & Sting.

Furthermore, scorchrend res reduction is crucial utility for those attempting to fight Master Asura, whose whopping 80% base res otherwise renders punisher comps nonviable.   

Curse of Nihility-friendly

Where several top adventurers have their kits nullified within Dominion quests, Alex’s kit can function at full potential. Alex is welcomed into the strength amp family with open arms and will definitely be paired with other amp units down the line. 

Weaknesses

No Unique Niche 

In terms of scorchrend enabling/support, K!Elisanne has that covered. In terms of raw damage/dispel, Gala Leonidas and a slew of others have Alex beat. Outside of Master Asura, there are other dedicated picks that can do what Alex does, only better.

Dragon Recommendations

Gala Reborn Agni / Gala Mars are both top tier picks, with the former performing better in Dominion quests.

Konohana Sakuya boosts both of Alex’s attack skills quite nicely. 

Horus focuses on skill uptime while still pumping out respectable personal damage.

Weapon Recommendations

Budget Option: Lupis Solis

Wyrmprint Recommendations

Pair 1

For those with extra Dominion slots, run Crown of Light and Tutelary’s Destiny to cap skill damage, and replace Forest Bonds with either Burning Punisher (Elegant Escort, Me and My Bestie!) or crit (Dear DiaryInitio's Sentinel).
