Is Lu Yi a Good Esper in Dislyte?

Lu Yi is a Fighter Esper that packs a real punch when built well and fully developed. He can debuff enemies with Sear and Bleed, use his passive to hit for True Damage which ignores enemy Esper defense stats, and use his Skyshot ability for concentrated multi-attack damage once the enemy field has been thinned.

However, overall, it is his passive that really makes him formidable. Indeed, once you have him Ascended to Phase 3, the chance to hit for True Damage will increase to 30% upon a Crit! Both his attack abilities attack multiple times with each attack capable of triggering his passive. Therefore, maximizing your C. RATE is vital to getting the most out of Lu Yi.

Lu Yi excels against Fafnir in the Ritual Miracle as he is able to clear its shield quickly with his multi-attack abilities. In fact, in any battle against a small number of enemies, he will do well, such as the Sonic Miracle or Holobattle, due to his final ability being able to focus on a smaller number of targets.

Lu Yi Abilities

In battle, an Esper will utilize their abilities in order to deal damage to the enemy and support their team.

Lu Yi Equipment

As mentioned already, maximizing Lu Yi’s C. RATE is crucial to getting the most out of him. In addition, you want to get his ATK up to ensure that when his Crits are triggered, he can become a savage DPS nuker. Therefore, you should look to apply the following sets:

  • War: ATK +30%
  • Fiery: C.RATE +20%

Lastly, Lu Yi’s Equipment characteristics should prioritize C. RATE, C. DMG, ATK BONUS, and SPD.
