About

An inquisitor of the Ilian Church. He acts tough, but is actually quite empathetic. An incident in his past led him to believe nothing is solved by merely punishing heretics, so he instead looks for proof his targets aren't heretical at all.

Overview

Curran makes a grand entrance as a featured 5★ adventurer of The Accursed Archives, challenging Ieyasu for the title of strongest Shadow DPS. Where Sazanka draws power from her afflictions and Force Strikes, the Dogged Inquisitor is more up front, wielding two damage skills backed by one of the highest STR stats in the game. Though lacking in depth, Curran’s kit cements him as a reliable Shadow powerhouse whose damage is mostly free of conditional gimmicks.

Strengths

Unbridled Power

No restrictions, no RNG. Simply hit your targets and reap the rewards. Curran’s power is most pronounced when bosses are in the Overdrive state. Unlike other Axe wielders, Curran is unreliant on Force Strikes, allowing him to maximize his SP gains by completing basic attack chains while still quickly depleting Overdrive bars.   

Paralysis Immunity

Full resistance to such an erratic affliction puts Curran at the forefront of all Jupiter content. A defensive Co-Ability will lower the HP requirements for eventual High Jupiter Trials.

Weaknesses

Slow SP gains

Sluggish swings grant equally slow SP gains, the worst of all weapon classes. Curran’s damage will stall if his basic attack chains are interrupted.  

Low mobility

Curran has the low HP pool expected of a Blade or Dagger wielder but without any sort of mobility. That being said, Curran doesn’t mind being a little reckless if he intends to make use of his massive Last Offense buff.

Dragon Recommendations

  • Nyarlathotep is finicky; he is the only dragon whose STR boost is conditional on an adventurer’s HP threshold. When dropping below 30%, Last Offense will cover the stat drop, while the massive shield provides cover until Curran can receive support.
  • Marishiten and Juggernaut provide reliable raw number boosts.
  • Nidhogg and Silke are split HP/STR picks that give Curran more staying power.
  • Phantom, Zodiark, and Maritimus are usable budget options.
