PvE Stories Pros and Cons
Persistent Magia Effects
Sayaka’s Magia applies various persisting effects to herself. For two turns, She gains a guaranteed Counter effect letting her retaliate when attacked, and a guaranteed Critical effect when attacking. Furthermore, she applies Endure to herself for three turns, letting her survive lethal attacks followed by HP restoration. Sayaka becomes significantly stronger while her effects last.
Boasting a combination of high HP and Defense, Sayaka can thrive in the role of a tank by redirecting damage to herself to protect allies. While she buys time, her team can build MP which Sayaka also benefits from.
Liability in Short Battles
Since Sayaka’s strengths lie in her durability and persisting effects, fights that end quickly leave little room for her to contribute. She will not be the MVP of every battle, so aim to utilize her specific set of skills when the situation calls for them.
PvP Mirrors Pros and Cons
If Sayaka can survive long enough to use her Magia, she will often be able to close out the battle on her own. While the damage is only single-target, the other various benefits she receives will help her survive and dish out enough damage before they expire. Due to the fast pace of Mirrors matches, this strategy is not reliable.
Poor Disc Pool
Sayaka’s characteristic BACCA discs do her no favors in an environment where Blast excels.
Regenerating HP over three turns is too slow to be useful in Mirrors. This limits the usefulness of her connect to just an Attack boost, which is unimpressive when girls like Tsuruno Yui can provide an Attack buff of the same magnitude in addition to a second offensive effect.
To maximize Sayaka’s usefulness, she should be equipped with memoria which emphasize her role as a tank. Provoke, Guardian, and Counter effects are strong, as well as passive Defense Up and Damage Cut.
