Combat Tips and Tactics

Lailah is a classic pyromancer. She has low defense and is generally fragile when it comes to close-combat, but her incredible Fire artes allow her to dish out massive damage from long range. This makes her a specialist when it comes to her role.

Equipping her with stacked Sheeld skills will allow her to cast her seraphic artes uninterrupted even when under attack by enemies, and that emphasizes her high-risk, high reward playstyle.

Her wide arsenal of attacks can also help her get away from enemies if things get a bit heated up. Artes like Blitz Bomb and Flare Vortex are especially useful in such scenarios.

Lailah’s expertise are best observed when using her Seraphic artes, but her martial artes are also extremely useful when you are against slower enemies or enemies that punish long casting times.

Use her stun chance with the martial artes to get away from enemies if things become a little tricky. All in all, Lailah should in generally be the furthest away from enemies during battle, and is best to deal high amounts of damage with her Seraphic artes.
