Juniper Strengths and Weaknesses

Strengths

Juniper's high Attack and Critical Rate make them excellent at landing critical hits on enemies. Their high Agility also makes them a difficult target to hit, providing them with a decent defensive advantage that other Attacker heroes do not have.

Their attacks also have remarkably high range, allowing them to stay a safe distance away from combat.

Weaknesses

Though they has high Agility, their other defensive stats are similar to other Attackers, making them fragile if enemies manage to hit them.

Many of their attacks and skills also rely on certain conditions to unleash their full damage, such as HP or debuff requirements. Since you cannot control Heroes, setting up these conditions for them is a difficult task.
