Defense Co-Ability, multi-target damage, Stun Res… What’s not to like about Karina? Aside from her weapon's Skill, she won’t be getting a steady stream of Healing Doublebuff without Thaniel, but frequent AoE damage will help clear the map.
Similarly to Karina, Luther sports full Stun immunity and a highly offensive weapon combo.
A surprisingly effective off-element pick thanks to Stun Res. Verica’s health regen is great in all game modes, but chip damage makes her kit especially desirable.
A solid Water healer with full Stun Res, Nurse Aeleen packs healing in both of her Skills, ensuring that everyone stays healthy. New World Escort provides her with 100% Skill Prep, allowing Nurse Aeleen to start healing right away if required.
Alternate Team Members
As AI is now able to Force Strike as needed, Xander can now shine even more while on auto. He deals great multi-target damage with his AoE Skills, and the combination of full Stun Res and his aggressive Sword combos make for a great attacker.
Multi-target damage, Combo bonuses, and full Stun Res make Cleo an excellent pick for whittling down the boss. The added Freeze effect on Starlit Gift provides the party with additional breathing room by keeping foes immobilized.
Primed Devastation provides a great source of Critical Rate for your lead Adventurer, and the ability to inflict Bog and Defense debuff makes it easier for your party to whittle down the boss.
Another healer who can substitute in the event that Nurse Aeleen or Verica aren't available. He lacks Stun Res, and Beauty's Balm or Marine Staff is almost mandatory for the second heal, but being on-element helps a ton with healing and survivability, and Seafarer's Pride synergizes well with Karina.
