Equip these Arts initially to make Mio a formidable opponent. Butterfly Blade and Air Fang, in particular, are useful for inflicting damage while gaining aggro from enemies. Wide Slash, when time properly, will allow you to dodge enemy attacks while dealing damage. Speed Demon can be used as well.

We recommend equipping items that increase Mio's while she is using the Zephyr class, as this will increase her chances of evading enemy attacks. Since her role is a Defender, any items that increase aggro from enemies should also be equipped when possible.

Prioritize Skill and Status-Related Abilities

We recommended unlocking any skill or status-related abilities in Mio's Soul Tree. Abilities that allow you to evade enemy attacks while dealing counter damage will be particularly useful when dealing with multiple enemies.
