Show Explanation/Analysis

Preferred IV: +HP

  • A boon in HP is the natural choice for a build that utilizes HP-based support skills. 

Weapon: Wrathful Grandscratcher+ 

  • Grandscratcher is uniquely useful in terms of support, as it allows the user to act as a beacon for charging of the Special of the ally with the highest Attack.

Assist: Return+ / None

  • Movement-based healing Assists such as Return and Rescue double as both a 

Special: Balm+ / Miracle

  • The choice of Special is mostly inconsequential but a Balm skill can be used for a quick turn 1 buff assuming you are using an Assist. 

Passive A: HP/Spd / HP +5

Passive B: Dazzling Staff 

Passive C: Infantry Pulse / Stall Ploy / Flexible

  • Double up on charing your entire team’s Specials by using Xane’s large HP pool for infantry pulse.
  • Another HP-based skill condition that is big useful in circumventing units or skills that grant additional movement such as Yuri, Legendary Sigurd, or any flying beast foe.
  • The C skill can otherwise be replaced as needed to suit the team. 

Sacred Seal: Chill Skills / Quickened Pulse 

  • Generally any support-based skills such as Chills make for good seal slot options.
  • Quickened Pulse allows for Balm Skills to be immediately active.

Show Explanation/Analysis

Preferred IV: +ATK or +SPD

  • Assets in Attack or Speed add to Xane’s offensive power. 

Weapon: Wrathful Palm Staff+ / Wrathful Serpentine Staff+ 

  • Both Palm Staff and Serpantine Staff refine to Wrathful make for solid weapon options for Xane. The former boosts both bulk offensive potential by reducing the in-combat Atk/Spd of the foe while the latter causes damage after combat as well as disables healing to the target and enemies within two spaces.

Assist: Return+ / Physic+

Special: Balm+ / Miracle

  • The choice of Special is mostly inconsequential but a Balm skill can be used for a quick turn 1 buff assuming you are using an Assist. 

Passive A: Atk/Spd Push / Atk/Spd Catch  / Atk/Spd Solo 

  • Any of the following choices of Attack and Speed boosting A skills given their own conditions make for effective offense boosting options. 

Passive B: Dazzling Staff 

  • The tried and true combination of Wrathful and Dazzling Staff comes down to what you what in the B slot and what you want to refine your weapon with. Since Xane already has Dazzling Staff in his base kit, the choice is clear.

Passive C: Joint Drive  / Savage Blow / Flexible

  • Joint Drive skills couple as a stat boost for Xane as well as any allies within 2 spaces during combat.

Sacred Seal: Blade Session / Atk/Spd Solo / Savage Blow

  • Offensive stat boosting seals such as Blade Session and Atk/Spd solo are great options for further supplementing Xane’s offensive power.

Strengths

High HP

A high HP pool helps in the activation of HP-based skills such as Infantry Pulse and Stall Ploy. 

Solid Speed

A base Speed of 36 is actually on the higher end of the infantry staff pool.

Infantry

The benefit of being infantry comes with access to exceptional exclusive skills for both support and combat.

Weaknesses

Poor Defense 

With a base value of only 23, Xane doesn’t fare well in the face of heavy physical damage.

Staff Restrictions

A staff wielding unit is limited in their combat potential due to having restricted skills, the need for wrathful staff to deal full damage, and the inability to use offensive Specials.
