Show Explanation/Analysis

Preferred IV: +ATK or +SPD

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

Weapon: Kia Staff

  • Kia Staff should be used with the HP condition in mind in order to clear Isolation and other debuffs/status effects from your other units.

Assist: Return+ / None

  • Movement-based healing Assists such as Return and Rescue allow for very unique AI interactions. For example, they can be used to activate a team’s movement without the need for the opponent to enter enemy range. 
  • If you’re not using the aforementioned Return/Rescue trap strategy, it’s more practical to simply not use any Assist skill at all so that units are moved out of position. 

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 

  • The purpose of this build is support but Atk/Spd Push works well with Sara’s exceptional offensive statline in combat situations. 

Passive B: Dazzling Staff / Wings of Mercy

  • Dazzling is a great choice on most staff units by simply preventing counterattacks. Wings of Mercy is a solid alternative for warp in kills.

Passive C: Odd Recovery / Drive Res / Flexible

  • Odd Recovery couples well with Kia staff, as it allows you to clear nearby allies while positioning low HP allies further away. 
  • 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.

Strengths

Kia Staff

Kia Staff makes for an incredibly useful utility weapon, especially on AR Defense teams, as it allows Sara to clear the penalties and negative status effects such as Isolation from target allies.

Fantastic Offensive Statline

I may be a healer but

Weaknesses

Terrible Physical Bulk

With only 35 HP and 16 Def at base, Sara doesn’t hold in the face of physical damage.

Kia StaffCalculates damage from staff like other weapons. At start of turn, if【Penalty】is active on any allies within 4 spaces of unit (excluding unit), grants Atk/Spd+6 to ally with the lowest HP among them for 1 turn and neutralizes any【Penalty】on that ally. (If【Penalty】is not active on any ally within 4 spaces of unit, targets ally with the lowest HP among them instead.)  【Penalty】 All effects that last "on foe through its next action." Includes penalties inflicted by a skill like Panic or Threaten and negative status effects (preventing counterattacks, restricting movement, or the effects of a skill like Triangle Adept or Guard).
