Character Guides - Claire - Sample Builds - May 30, 2020



Body Field Effect

Role - Defense debuffs and Body Field Effect influence/maintainance

Required Soul Triad trees to invest in - Throat Jab, Ninja, Crimson Acrobat

Optional Soul Triad trees to invest in - Stealth, Fallen Angel

Weapon - Combat Knife or Assassin Blade


Claire will be mainly applying Throat Jab to debuff enemy defenses, using Ninja to maintain the Body Field Effect and Crimson Acrobat to prey on knocked down enemies. Weapon choice is typically Assassin Blade, to grant the party even higher damage, but if relying more on Claire's Crimson Acrobat, Combat Knife is better for her own personal damage output.

Optional trees include Fallen Angel, whose enhanced Knockdown is handy for the Body Field Effect and the Prone passive in its Soul Triad tree boosts Claire's damage output. Stealth is a good panic button, especially given Claire's poor defensive capabilities.



Mind Field Effect

Role - Damage, Poison and Mind Field Effect influence/maintainance

Required Soul Triad trees to invest in - Sixth Sense, Cheetah, Stealth, Toxic Gas

Optional Soul Triad trees to invest in - None

Weapon - Rogue Dagger or Poison Knife


This build is a very safe build, albeit one without Throat Jab -- Claire is capable of buffing her damage with solid application of Sixth Sense/Mindgames and Cheetah/Mega Cheetah to grant her high damage Throwing Knives with zero cooldown. Stealth helps to maintain the Mind Field Effect, and its tree contains a Throwing Knife damage boost for Claire. Toxic Gas provides high damage/duration Poison that is useful for getting through the high defenses of the Mind Field Effect.

As far as weapon choice, Rogue Dagger makes Claire's powered up rapid-fire Throwing Knives twice as powerful, while Poison Knife brings an incredibly powerful defense-ignoring Poison into play.



Water Field Effect

Role - Large damage, Poison, Knockdown and Water Field Effect influence/maintainance

Required Soul Triad trees to invest in - Throat Jab, Fallen Angel, Toxic Gas, Torrent

Optional Soul Triad trees to invest in - None

Weapon - Water Knife, True Ghost or Kay Cutter


Claire needs to power up Torrent, which is her highest damage ability she has. Fallen Angel has passives in its Soul Triad tree to add more waterpools in one casting and Toxic Gas provides widespread Poison to the waterpools, both of which help fulfill the conditions that Torrent needs for extra damage (Water Field Effect, Poison to enemies, 20+ waterpools). Throat Jab is present to bring even more damage output for Claire and her team.

Water Knife is the typical go-to, a straight-up 2x damage boost for Torrent. True Ghost gets out the 20+ waterpool requirement for Torrent's extra 3x damage for reliably. Kay Cutter is great for dealing damage with basic attacks and Throat Jab between Torrents.
