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



Body Field Effect

Role - Damage, long Stun and Body Field Effect influence/maintainance

Required Soul Triad trees to invest in - Deadly Arts, Light Chi, Haymaker

Optional Soul Triad trees to invest in - Revive, System Shock

Weapon - Stun Claws, Knife Knuckles or Santiago Cesti


Alberto can combo his Body abilities together for good damage, long Stun and a Knockback finisher, consisting of Haymaker -> Deadly Arts -> Light Chi. Light Chi itself is useful for maintaining the Body Field Effect, and his choice of optional tree depends on party needs. If healing is needed, Revive's tree has Light Zone, while System Shock can Stun multiple enemies safely.

Alberto has many weapon choices for this build, with Stun Claws for longer Stun from Deadly Arts and Haymaker, Knife Knuckles if Alberto is killing a lot of enemies or Santiago Cesti if greatly enhancing Alberto's basic attacks to huge damage sounds appealing.



Healer

Role - Healing, Mind or Fire Field Effect influence/maintainance

Required Soul Triad trees to invest in - Revive, Inner Strength, Elixir, System Shock

Optional Soul Triad trees to invest in - None

Weapon - Beast Claws, Magma Knuckles or Seraphim Nails


Alberto's required Soul Triad trees are all obvious choices -- Inner Strength for its healing boosts and free Light Magic, Elixir for healing and cooldown reduction, Revive particularly for Light Zone, and System Shock to help prevent damage easily. Counter should be used at all opportunities to keep the Mind Field Effect going.

Beast Claws and Seraphim Nails are easy choices for Alberto's Healer build, since Counter is useful for chipping in with damage and Mind Field Effect influence/maintainance. The one exception is if aiming for a Fire Field Effect team build -- use Magma Knuckles instead. Alberto's build when supporting Cook and/or Jimmy will pretty much be this anyways, just with a different weapon.



Wind Siphon Field Effect

Role - Damage dealer, Stun, healing

Required Soul Triad trees to invest in - Revive, System Shock, Planet Destroyer, Thunder Storm

Optional Soul Triad trees to invest in - None

Weapon - Gigas Fists


Very similar to his Healer build, except Alberto has reduced healing capabilities and more damage dealing options with Planet Destroyer and Thunder Storm (Revive is still present for gaining Light Zone). Gigas Fists are Alberto's weapon of choice here for extra damage.

Note that Alberto may have a difficult time landing hits, even with Stun -- aside from Cherry's Knockback-oriented Wind Field Effect build, the random windbursts from the Wind Field Effect work against Alberto's Stun. It may be best to rely on Thunder Storm primarily for damage, as Static should let Alberto frequently create Thunder Storms.
