Fallen Cecilia
Once one of the noblest knights in the kingdom, she was on a hunt to find the Dark Witch when she was cursed by the witch, causing her to turn her blade toward her lover and friends. The shock of her actions led her to lock herself in the witch's castle, surrounded by nothing but thornbushes and incapable of hurting anyone else.

Builds

Utility DPS

Due to her potential, ML Iseria could be built as a dedicated cleaver, a full debuffer, or a utility DPS as a mixture of both. In this build we will examine her potential to be built as a utility DPS since a hybrid build like this can act as a stop gap in many different team comps.

Stats

As a utility DPS, she would need a middling amount of each stat with high crit chance to maintain good damage while being able to debuff a decent pool of meta heroes. Since her skills make her quite flexible, players can tune each aspect to taste and to match their teams. 

If players want to cleave with her, drop all speed for atk% and cdmg%.

If players need a debuffer, drop both crit stats and atk% to make room for eff%, spd, and a bit of bulk.

Sets

Speed set is a no brainer for all builds except for cleave. Immunity is de facto the safe option for all end game players, though it is acceptable to drop immunity for hit or crit set if it yields better stats or even no set if it will yield them better sub stats.

Artifacts

Guiding Light - Mentioned above is that the most glaring weakness is that ML Iseria has no innate survival options. Guiding Light gives her a solid chance to grant herself some semblance of it and when paired with a tank gives her the option to gain more value over more turns.

Portrait of the Saviors - Would be the default choice for cleave and an okay choice for a fast DPS.

Song of Stars - is an okay choice for debuff purist builds, but gets no turn 1 value.

Analysis

Overview

Briar Witch Iseria, our first ever 5* Dark Ranger, is a PvP centric character that seems to have been released as a direct response to Remnant Violet and Celine. Due to her base stats as a Gemini Ranger and the utility she brings, she has a natural affinity as either a utility DPS or a full cleaver.

Strengths

Passive Hit Chance Up

By far ML Iseria’s hallmark trait. This is what enables her to be a very strong cleaver or debuff DPS. By having passively increased hit chance, her damage and debuffs will have a much harder time of being evaded. At base value, it can cover Assassin Cartuja passive or Moonlight Dreamblade. At max skill up, she can mitigate both.

Built in Reingar Drink/Uberius

Thanks to her loaded passive, ML Iseria’s attacks will proc extra damage that penetrates 70% def, a good cherry on top to her competent damage.

Full Dispel + Unbuffable

On top of her respectable damage, ML Iseria’s S3 can dispel all buffs and have a high chance of inflicting unbuffable, both of which are part of what makes Basar’s skill kit so deadly.

Weaknesses

Damage Leaves a Bit More to be Desired

ML Iseria sports a similar damage level to that of Blood Blade Karin. However, part of her damage (S2 passive) is flat, which means it does not scale with critical damage, which in theory means that in terms of pure damage potential, BBK is would be stronger.

Cannot Secure Kills Against Revivers

On the note of comparing ML Iseria to BBK as a cleaver, she lacks a cleanup mechanic. BBK gains an extra turn on kill, which gives her a lot of safety against Arbiter Vildred, which is still a top tier defense DPS. Without any utility that can fulfill this, ML Iseria relies on her team to be well built around her to make up for this lack of tools (ex. Extinction or clean up hitter).

No Defensive Utility

If we were to look at what makes PvP moonlight heroes meta, it would definitely be a defensive passive (ex. A. Vildred, R. Violet, S. Tene) or some type of unique utility (ex. Ruele, S. Angelica, C. Zerato). ML Iseria has neither of these. Furthermore, her damage is eclipsed by other cleaver and her utility can be matched by other debuffers. This means for her to succeed in a team composition, she must be in a speed focused team or be built somewhat bulky to prevent being one shot by standard DPS heroes.
