Overview

Xander is a 5★ Water Sword adventurer and the premier pick for clearing Imperial Onslaught (Flame) and Void Agni. His kit synergizes well with his weapon class, namely by plowing through enemies with enhanced Force Strikes and ramping up Slayer’s Strength over time. With the SP-charging Force Strikes and powerful AoE attack Skills, Xander is truly an offensive powerhouse, shredding both groups of enemies and bosses’ Overdrive Bars with ease.

Strengths

High DPS with Fast Overdrive Breaks

With two attack Skills and a potent Force Strike modifier, Xander dishes out high DPS and easily breaks Overdrive bars of boss enemies. Force Strikes are easily woven into basic attack chains, making for a versatile combo.

King of Wave-Based Content

A 50% bonus to Force Strike Damage directly enhances Xander’s ability to stack Striker’s Strength. These factors, combined with Stun immunity and two wide-range damaging skills, make Xander nigh unstoppable in the chaotic environment of wave-based content, such as Imperial Onslaught (Flame).

Weaknesses

Low Attack Range and Mobility

To maintain balance with their advantages, Swords have neither the reach of Lances nor the agility of Daggers and Blades. As a result, Xander often ends up in vulnerable positions close to his targets.

Quest Dependent

Striker’s Strength is only applicable where there are lesser enemies to stack up on. Nevertheless, this doesn’t detract from his viability in single-target environments, as his Force Strikes still work to quickly Break bosses.

Dragon Recommendations

  • Leviathan is the premier choice for the greatest Strength bonus (40-60%) and access to Bog affliction. Dragonyule Jeanne is also a viable alternative that provides a trade-off between a lower raw Strength value and an increased Critical Rate bonus. 
  • Vodyanoy is an accessible 4★ option that provides a solid 30-45% Strength boost, and is easily unbound with Moonlight Stones via the Void Battles Treasure Trade.
  • Siren offers a drastic increase to Skill Damage alongside a modest Strength bonus. While this maximizes Xander's theoretical DPS when taking his damage Skills into account, the aforementioned Dragons are better choices for Xander if Force Strikes are a higher priority.
  • Poseidon and High Mercury offer a balanced portion of Strength and HP, at 20-30% each.
  • Poli’Ahu and Fubuki are budget choices for Strength boosts, with Poli'Ahu being the budget counterpart of Poseidon/High Mercury.

Weapon Recommendations

Void Options: Blizzard Ingot (Void Agni Strike), Judge of Oceans (High Brunhilda's Trial)

Budget Option: Blade of Glory

Wyrmprint Recommendations

Pair 1

Pair 2

Pair 3

Pair 4

  • Pair 1: This set is used for the Void Agni battle, as Void Agni features Skill Resistance that would nullify the advantages that traditional Skill Damage Wyrmprints offer.
  • Pair 2: This set is designated for use in High Brunhilda's Trial, which provides Xander with full Burn Res. In conjunction with the Judge of Oceans Void weapon, Xander can survive the initial opening blast with sufficient investment.

  • Pair 3: This set is tailored for battles with waves of enemies, such as Imperial Onslaught (Flame) or Facility Events that are advantageous for Water Adventurers. Resounding Rendition is also a great option for the first slot, and other prints with Slayer's Strength or Striker's Strength, such as Together We Stand, are decent alternatives to The Heroes Arrive as well.

  • Pair 4: This is a general purpose set for most other content. Specific Wyrmprints can be swapped as needed.

Alternative options for Xander are as follows:

  • The first Wyrmprint slot should focus on Skill Damage. Plunder Pals and Hitting the Books are great budget options in this category.

  • The second Wyrmprint slot can alternatively focus on boosting Strength. Crystalian Envoy offers a conditional 13% Strength boost alongside Flame resistance, and other Strength-boosting Wyrmprints, such as Bonds Between Worlds and Astounding Trick, are viable picks as well. For players that are confident in their abilities, Evening of Luxury offers the greatest conditional Strength boost alongside increased Critical Damage.
