Is Arcana a Good Esper in Dislyte?

As you’d expect from a Fighter, Arcana can deal some respectable damage. However, that is not where he gains his most utility from. Indeed, he is capable of landing some great debuffs on the enemy as well as stealing their buffs.

His third ability, Scouring Whip, will be your go-to attack when you see the enemy team loaded up with buffs. It attacks all enemies, steals 1 buff from each, and can inflict them with Miss Rate Up to reduce their chance of debuffing your team.

His second ability, Imprisonment, works very well as a combo with Scouring Whip. It attacks 1 enemy twice with each hit having a chance to stun them, and when they are already debuffed with Miss Rate Up, all their debuffs get +1 turn duration.

Arcana Abilities

In battle, an Esper will utilize their abilities in order to deal damage to the enemy and support their team. All Dislyte Esper Abilities start at Level 1 and can be increased further depending on the ability. Each additional level will improve the ability in a certain way.

Arcana Equipment

For Arcana’s kit to really work his debuffs need to land. As such a priority will be getting his ACC up. SPD will also be useful in ensuring he can act before the enemy and move up the turn order much faster. Therefore, you should look to apply the following sets:

  • Wind: SPD +25%
  • Recurve: ACC +25%

Lastly, Arcana’s Equipment characteristics should prioritize ATK BONUS, ACC, and SPD.
