Character Tier List | Best Characters

Mona Strengths and Weaknesses

  • Unique movement style allows for high-speed actions.
  • Catalyst weapon allows for Elemental damage in standard attacks.
  • Elemental Skill can be set in place, allowing for easy Elemental Reaction setup.

How to Use Mona

A character who can target a wide area

Mona 1.png

Mona can take advantage of her wide-range attacks to dish out damage to hordes of enemies repeatedly. In particular, her Elemental Skill and Elemental Blast are able to limit enemies' movement, preventing them from interrupting your next move.

To take advantage of her effectively, you'll want to use a Talent like “Mirror Reflection of Doom” to afflict the Wet status effect, then while the enemies' movement is stifled by that attack, switch to an Electro character and inflict the Electro-Charged status effect to rack up the damage.

Able to Dash across water

Mona 2.gif

Unlike other characters, Mona is able to continue dashing across the surface of the water, making it significantly easier to traverse. Although it doesn't last much longer than a standard Dash, it proves long enough to cross most rivers smoothly.

However, she cannot start Dashing while already in water, so be sure to start dashing when Mona is still on land. And watch your stamina bar while dashing – Mona will drown just like other characters if she runs out of stamina in the water.

Select Mona when crafting Ascension Materials

Mona's Passive Talent “Principium of Astrology” has the potential to refund 25% of the materials used when crafting Ascension Materials. This will allow you to save time on hunting for rare crafting materials, so be sure to always choose Mona when crafting these items.
