Dislyte Esper Guides: Unky Chai (Yue Lao)

Dislyte Esper Unky Chai

Originating from Yue Lao, a Chinese god of marriage and love, Unky Chai is a Support Esper who mostly focuses on powerfully buffing his allies. He’s surprisingly useful, considering the fact that he’s a 3* Esper and not too popular in the community.

Is Unky Chai a Good Esper in Dislyte?

Though I never personally use him, Unky Chai is a particularly useful Support Esper at the beginning of the game, on account of the fact that he’s 3* and thus easy to get. His buffs are particularly useful, considering the fact that other Support Espers of his rarity aren’t really worth your time or aren’t able to buff others.

Primarily, he’s also pretty simple to use and doesn’t require much strategy, because rather than having 3 abilities to choose from, he has one passive ability instead. Unfortunately, most 4* and 5* Espers are better than him, and his Captain Ability is largely useless, but he’s still pretty effective in and of himself.

Unky Chai 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.

Unky Chai Equipment

Firstly, being focused on making his allies more powerful, the most important things to ensure you’re doing to keep him at his best are reducing his ability cooldowns so he can refresh his buffs whenever possible and keeping him alive, as many Support Espers tend to be quite flimsy.

Secondly, being a 3* Esper, this flimsiness is only exacerbated and you’ll definitely have to focus on keeping his HP and DEF high, otherwise, you’ll be down an Esper and down the buffs your team is relying on. His passive will also be lost, which can make other Espers’ ability cooldowns more cumbersome. Therefore, you should look to apply the following sets:

  • Ocean: Grants a 35% chance of reducing all ability cooldowns by 1 turn after an ability is used.
  • Aegis: All allied Espers start the battle with a Shield equal to 20% of their max HP. Duration: 2 turns.
  • Grove: +25% HP

Lastly, Unky Chai’s Equipment characteristics should prioritize HP, DEF, and SPD.
