Light Grande Build feat. Zoe

The original purpose of this site was to write up guides to help people understand mechanics, and also to have fun with some theory-crafting. However, for some reasons (laziness and being busy), I ended up only writing up about the damage calculation formula plus some tidbits about Chevalier Magna Sword and it turned out that Southrop ended up contributing most of the content by translating news and stuff. But this time, I managed to find some motivation to write up something after getting a Grande summon not so long ago.

One of the main reasons I decided to write about this build, and in extenso about Grande builds, is because most of the guides I read about Grande builds are severely outdated; most of them still feature the double Grande setup (main and assist summons), which is not very relevant anymore — at least at higher levels.

New Character: SR Morphe & Phoebe

This time’s event character is actually pretty complicated so I figured I’d write a little something.

For what it’s worth, it seems the names of the characters derive from Morpheus (god of dreams) and Phobetor (god of nightmares). Almost all of their abilities derive their names from terms in Oneiromancy (dream interpretation), which unfortunately, the official English translation completely erased. And for some reason their Super Attack is Italian?
