Where to Start
Blustery Grave IV has arrived, and it's all about putting your fire-affinity loadouts to the test. Before getting into it, here's a few general notes:
- Blustery Grave is all about taking on wind-affinity enemies, so it's generally recommended to use fire-affinity weapons exclusively for the best damage output/damage resistance.
- This is a high-difficulty event, and the quests within will not be forgiving to new players with limited resources. Be warned!
- This event's quests do not require you to grind quests many times over in order to receive the most valuable rewards. Stamina isn't much of a concern.
- As the name implies, this is the third appearance of this particular Abyss Tower; if you played the previous ones, you may see that you have already completed some of the earlier quests, and perhaps gained some of the rewards already.
Recommended Character Costumes
Below is a non-exhaustive list of recommended character costumes organized into a few different categories; this is meant to highlight ones that should provide easier paths to success across the quests you'll encounter, but many outside of this list will still see beneficial usage.
Wind Damage Resistance:
As with all dark memory character costumes having an affinity-based damage reduction passive, each of Reborn Truant, Reborn Pillar, Reborn Swordmaster, and Reborn Monopolist have the Whirlwind Guard passive ability capable of negating up to 25% of recieved Wind damage. This can be invaluable to have in the later quests within Blustery Grave, especially for the handful of quest missions that require to “clear while each of your party member's HP is at least over 80%.”
Support comes in many forms, whether its a healer, tank, or damage buffer; these few will likely do well depending on the enemy/boss combination at hand:
The general amount of damage-dealers available essentially go unending, but there are a few recent costume additions that appear to excel specifically well for outputting fire damage:
Lots of choices for weapons, but here’s a few highlights that may help you out:
