Main Story Quest / Events
Based on personal observations, tier lists (JP/CN/TW), and other sources.
Shinobu's Physical Defense Shred lasts 18 seconds.
Shinobu is one of the few characters that can shred Physical Defense at range, along with Mitsuki and Ayane.
The Skill 1 Summon will act as a Front tank and with proper timing, can be used to soak a massive enemy attack or UB.
Request manually timing her UB with her Skill 2 for maximum Physical Defense shred.
The Summon can be used against the player by empowering "upon defeating an enemy" bonuses on the enemy team and by increasing enemy TP bars upon defeat.
Shards are relatively inconsistent to farm as they come from Hard Mode.
