Genny Best Weapon Refinement

Effect of Genny's Refined Weapon

Exclusive Weapon Effect from Refining (Special Effect Type)
SP: 400
Might: 14 Range: 2 HP:
Grants Atk+3. Foe cannot counterattack. After combat, if unit attacked, inflicts 【Gravity】on target and foes within 1 space of target.
【Gravity】
Restricts target's movement to 1 space through its next action.
If unit initiates combat or is within 2 spaces of an ally, grants Atk/Res+5 to unit during combat. Restores 7 HP to unit and allies within 2 spaces of unit after combat.
Arena Medal:500 Divine Dew:200

We recommend the Special Effect Refine for Springtime Staff

The special effect refine allows Genny to hit harder when kiting, and it grants a built-in effect identical to Breath of Life 3. This allows her to both kite enemies, and heal allies when doing so! Since the Atk/Res buff and the heal can also be activated, you can definitely bait opponents to attack her. Make sure they won't take her out, though! The Res bonus will definitely help in surviving these attacks.

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 and Springtime Staff 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!

Genny's exclusive weapon, Springtime Staff, also has access to 【Gravity】, hits harder than Gravity+, and it has a built-in Dazzling Staff 3 effect that goes well with the mentioned **Wrathful Staff 3!

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.

If you have access to Springtime Staff, then you have the option to get her special effect refine. The refine makes her hit hard when kiting opponents, and it heals her allies everytime she exits combat.

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…

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.

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.

      And it's definitely not Armor March that's giving her that much value

    • >>[59]
      For you that asked for a Adult Tiki build, here you have! I changed her prefered since it is pretty outdated. You could go with Lantern or Lightning, both can work. Remember to keep her close to her allies to get Atk/Res Form's effect
