We do not recommend leveling up Anchor Chain

Do to its somewhat niche nature or lack of utility, we do not recommend setting or investing AP into this Art. Generally speaking, your AP will better be spent on Reyn's other Arts. However, there are some builds that may make use of this Art, so only if you are running one of those should you invest your AP here.
