Character Evaluations

 

Based on personal observations, tier lists (JP/CN/TW), and other sources.

Strengths:

  • Generates a lot of TP for closest ally enabling some UB spam parties.

  • Skill 1 and UB bypass Front Tanks by attacking in a range.

  • UB deals more damage if Saren has low HP (1.5x at 50% health and 2x at about 10% health).

  • Can counter enemy parties that focus the Middle due to her UB scaling.

  • Easier TP generation targeting compared to Yukari and Yuki.

Weaknesses:

  • Requires planning to effectively use her Skill 2 TP generation.

  • If the expected TP target is defeated or displaced, Saren’s Skill 2 can go to the wrong target (e.g. Tank).

  • Shards are relatively inconsistent to farm as they come from Hard Mode.

How to Party:

  • Monika: with Monika’s Action Speed Up buff, Saren can use her first few TP generations faster.

  • Tamaki: a character that can “steal” TP while also being targeted by Saren can very quickly fire their UB in PVP.

  • Yukari/Yuki: other characters that can generate TP can allow parties to fire UB’s significantly faster.

  • Ninon: character that relies on UB spam and stands very close to Saren.
