Recommended IVs

Stat Superboon/Superbane IV Recommendation
HP (17) Normal HP ★★☆☆☆
Atk (9) No Attack IV ★★★★★
Spd (6) Spd Boon ★★★★☆
Def (4) No Def IV ★★★☆☆
Res (8) No Res IV ★★☆☆☆

◯ = Stat gains +4 with a superboon, ✕= Stat goes down by -4 with a superbane, - = No assets or flaws

+Atk/-Res

The best IVs for Genny are +Atk and -Res. She will find herself in situations that require her to attack foes because of Gravity+ and Wrathful Staff 3 so a +Atk IV would be very useful. She can take some points of Res as it is pretty high compared to Def so this is the best bane she can take.

Genny is a ranged magic attacker (range = 2). Therefore, when not accounting for the Weapon Triangle, the amount of damage she deals will be equivalent to her Atk minus the foe's Res stat.

Genny Strengths

Can be used as both an attacker and support unit

Staff attackers have the drawback of having their attack power halved during combat, but with the default B skill Wrathful Staff 3, Genny is able to deal damage from her staff like normal weapons. This means Genny has the power to play both a support role as well as a long ranged attack role in your party.

Gravity limits enemy movement

Genny's Gravity+ prevents target foe and foes within 1 space of target to 1 sace of movement through their next action. This is applied after Genny attacks said enemy. If combined with Dazzling Staff and a movement-assist skill from an ally such as Draw Back, Genny can continuously kite an enemy while dealing little chunks of damage. This is very useful for setting up kills for your Arena bonus units. You can also go with her default Wrathful Staff 3 to deal more damage, but be wary of units that can counterattack her. Check out our builds for Genny!

Access to weapon upgrades that boost her effectiveness!

Genny's staff can be upgraded in the weapon refinery to have a built-in effect. Your 2 choices are either the Wrathful Staff 3 or the Dazzling Staff 3 effects. Since Genny already has the former, it would be very efficient to go for the latter. This will make her not only hit hard, but also safe from the dangers of counterattacks. At this point and with some strategy, she and her allies can definitely tear apart many Arena line ups.

Genny Weaknesses

Low Spd leading to lackluster physical defense

Genny has very low Spd. This makes her susceptible to follow-up attacks. Coupled with the fact that she has very low Def, she can be easily taken out by physical units. Please be mindful when using Absorb+ against enemy units that can counterattack her. If you plan to use her in the long run, we recommend getting the weapon upgrade talked about above immediately.

Cannot equip powerful offensive skills

For someone like Genny who sports both Gravity+ and Wrathful Staff 3 by default, it would be perfect if she could inherit powerful offensive skills like Fury 4 or Life and Death 4. Unfortunately, she can not learn these skills for game balance purposes.

This castle is so beautiful, I feel like I’ve become a princess! I wish I could just stay here forever…
Me? Well... I was raised at a priory. I do have a father... But I can’t see him. I really wish I could.
I’m a little worried about you! You’re always running around. You should follow my lead and take a nap.
I’m writing a story. Actually... I want someone to read it. Do you think you might have time later? Only if it’s OK.

Oh! Sorry, sorry! I was thinking about this new idea I had for a story. Would you like to hear about it?

Can I ask you something? I’d like it if you would visit more often. Will you spend some time with me?
If you find the time, we could drink tea or go for a walk in the woods or around the lake…
Is that too much to ask? I know you already come and see me a lot. I don’t want you to get tired of me.
People always tell me that I’m like a little sister, but I want you to see me as more than that.
I’ll do my best to get stronger and stand on my own two feet. I really hope you’ll see what I mean.

    • Thank you so much bro. That was really helpful. Will try to have my +10 merge project ASAP. I need 200 more orbs to try and pull for that. I hope there will be good 4* units coming on the future (maybe with the new year).
