About

The daughter of the mayor of the rural town of Quinbell. Her domineering attitude tends to drag people into her affairs, but she's actually quite stoic. Despite her pampered origins, she strives every day to be a perfect version of herself.

Overview

Catherine’s unique stacking system offers both power and protection, making her a solo powerhouse. In a similar vein as Kirsty, Catherine is rewarded for avoiding damage, ramping up overtime and culminating in a powerful S2 burst. But as her story implies, Catherine is only concerned with herself, offering nothing in terms of team utility. While Xainfried brings both reliable DPS and Frostbite/STR buffs, Catherine is a bit harder to justify, especially since both endgame Flame bosses feature unavoidable damage to strip away Perfect Escort stacks. 

Strengths

Sustained & Burst Damage  

Perfection Embodied buffs Catherine’s standard attacks and Force Strikes, making sure she’s not a wet noodle while stacking. Her reward for avoiding damage is an explosive Perfect Order amplified by an innate Skill Damage ability.

Weaknesses

Must Remain Untouched 

Catherine wants to preserve Perfect Escorts stacks as much as possible, meaning she cannot take any damage whatsoever lest S2’s damage suffers. However, both High Brunhilda and Ayaha & Otoha feature instances of unavoidable damage which makes hitting max stacks a challenge.

Expensive Skills 

Despite Lances’ high SP gains, both of Catherine’s skills have relatively low uptime due to their exorbitant costs. This only emphasizes Catherine’s aversion to taking hits as Perfect Escort stacks aren’t easily replenished.

Dragon Recommendations

Gaibhne & Creidhne is Catherine’s best option by far, refunding a large portion of her expensive SP costs while still providing some STR.

Leviathan, Dragonyule Jeanne, and Nimis all perform similarly in terms of raw power.

Vodyanoy is an accessible yet functional budget pick.

Weapon Recommendations

Budget Option: Ocean Lord

Wyrmprint Recommendations

Pair 1

RR may be replaced with Dragon & Tamer. Slot 2 may be filled with a Skill Haste pick such as His Clever Brother / United by One Vision. Proper Maintenance and Primal Crisis are also strong alternatives.
