How to Use Barbara

The Best Healer

Barbara 1.png

Barbara is a healing specialist, so while she can use an Elemental Burst, her skills also have healing properties. When she executes her Elemental Burst, not only will all of your party members be healed, but any co-op partners in the area will as well, making her great for any party.

Using her Talent requires her to strike a target to heal them but it will also heal over time making it incredibly useful. If you're really in a pinch Barbara's final Constellation will auto-revive a fallen character once every 15 minutes.

Prepare Her Elemental Burst in Advance

Barbara 2.png

If you have Barbara's Elemental Burst ready before you go fight a boss it can make you life much easier. When she uses her Elemental Burst, she heals the entire party's HP. However, in order to use this she'll need to accumulate Elemental Energy, so it's best to do this in advance.

Best at Cooking Healing Food

When cooking food that can heal party members you should choose Barbara. When she cooks, there's a 12 percent chance that she will make two of the same item, which is a huge bang for your buck. When you're getting low on healing food, keep Barbara in mind.
