How to use Noelle

Can Interrupt Enemy Attacks

Noelle Normal Attack

Noelle uses a claymore, so although her attacks are slow, each blow she executes leaves a mark. Noelle can even knock down larger enemies and sub-bosses with her claymore, which can stop an enemy's movement mid-attack and leave them vulnerable. This gives her opportunities to finish off enemies safely without taking unnecessary damage.

Elemental Skill Boosts Defense and Heals

Noelle Shield

Noelle's Elemental Skill, “Breastplate”, combines attack, defense, and healing. It's often simply used as a shield to protect from attacks, but it also grants a chance to recover HP for all party members whenever Noelle attacks while the shield is up.
Spamming the shield as much as possible during a battle can help keep your whole party healed, so be sure to take advantage of it, especially during boss fights.

Useful for cooking defense-boosting food

Being a defense oriented character, Noelle excels at cooking Defense Food. Her Passive Talent, Maid's Knighthood, grants a 12% chance of doubling the product when cooking Defense Food giving you a chance to double up on your defensive preparations.

>>7 The only reason i used the bell on noelle is because how cool it looked lol, it started to show weakness around mid-game so i ditch the bell for whiteblind and then later wolf gravestone

I love using the Bell claymore with Noelle. Noelle is my pure defense character and used to heal my team and buy time for Element skills to recharge. The extra shielding really comes in handy. Don't think this weapon gets enough love.
