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

Summer Rhys Strengths

Possesses a Debuff to Atk and Spd

Palm Staff+ inflicts -3 Atk/Spd to foes within 2 spaces during combat. It works in both phases and any ally can take advantage of this debuff as long as Summer Rhys is within range of the enemy unit.

Shaves-off Enemies' HP Effectively!

Summer Rhys has a fairly high Atk stat for a staff user. Getting the Dazzling Staff refine allows him to engage enemies without the risk of counterattacks.

Healing is not always needed in battles so to fully make use of Summer Rhys, he may need to attack foes in some situations. Shaving-off enemies' HP important in Arena Scoring as it makes it easy for your bonus units to land the finishing blow.

Summer Rhys Weaknesses

Low Spd and Def

Summer Rhys' Spd and Def sit at 27 and 21 respectively at Lv.40. Even physical attackers with average Spd can double him and take him out easily! Utilize his ranged healing ability to make sure that he is always out of range of physical enemies.
