Overview

Xander is a 5★ Water Sword adventurer and the premier pick for clearing Flame IO. His kit synergizes well with his weapon class, namely by plowing through enemies with enhanced Force Strikes and ramping up Slayer’s Strength over time. With the SP-charging Force Strikes and powerful AoEs, Xander is truly an offensive powerhouse, shredding both groups of enemies and bosses’ Overdrive Bars with ease.

Strengths

Sword Wielder

Swords top the charts in both DPS and Overdrive DPS by hitting hard rapidly. Force Strikes are easily woven into basic attack chains, making for a versatile combo.

King of Flame IO

A 50% bonus to Force Strike Damage directly enhances Xander’s ability to stack Striker’s Strength. These factors combined with Stun immunity and two wide-range damaging skills make Xander nigh unstoppable in the chaotic environment of Flame IO.

Weaknesses

Low attack range and mobility

To maintain balance with their advantages, Swords have neither the reach of Lances nor the agility of Daggers and Blades. As a result, Xander often ends up in vulnerable positions close to his targets.

Quest Dependent

Striker’s Strength is only applicable where there are lesser enemies to stack up on. Nevertheless, this doesn’t detract from his viability in single-target environments, as his Force Strikes still work to quickly Break bosses.

Dragon Recommendations

  • Dragonyule Jeanne with her Critical Rate suits a rapid-fire weapon class like swords.
  • Leviathan and Vodyanoy compliment his glass-cannon build well. 
  • Poseidon and Poli’ahu meanwhile give him a little more HP for tackling the frontlines.  
  • Fubuki or Wellspring Imp are the preferable budget options.
