    Now i got why you are using him Caliber ::rudecat11::

    Basically takes over HT Lid role as breaker
    Magic cover
    Mitigation provoke
    Aoe heal counter
    Decent damage counter
    30% inner evasion
    Everyone´s Grudge ::rudecat5::
    Born to Die - Heaven Mode + Auroral Uppercut ::ink::
    Chaining moves for different characters is a nice extra but i don´t need it

    He even offers room for Cradle/PShield/Primal/Chaos Grenade...


    And he looks gud in my setup ;p


    With my Barusa in a team he is nuts.

    Sometimes I know what I’m talking about

    He can do about anything. You just have to build him accordingly with what you want from him. Provoker ? 100% evasion, decent SPR. Breaker ? Auto LB. Mag tank ? SPR. Chainer ? Mag and elemental weapon. And then... You mix it all, depending on what you want and what you need.

    From your post, I assume you are actually using him as a magic cover tank as well. If that is the case, how does he exactly take the place of an actual breaker when:

    1) He doesn't have any sort of defensive AoE break.
    2) When he uses his tank-related moves, he can't break and viceversa. What are you doing turn one and every time he dies or gets dispelled? You have to choose between your magic cover and your breaks. Which means, you might have to choose whether your tank is going to die, again, or your party is going to die :P Sure you can have other units break in those turns but, then, Beryl isn't replacing an actual, dedicated, breaker at all...
    3) Nothing of what you mentioned (Magic cover, Mitigation provoke, Aoe heal counter, Decent damage counter, 30% inner evasion, Everyone´s Grudge, Primal Instinct, etc) has anything to do with him being a breaker. The question is always the same: how many things do you think a single unit can do? Especially a unit like a tank that might die often times...

    I suppose you can indeed use him as your dedicated breaker against single bosses, with back-up magic cover, if needed, if you want to or can forego some of the better easiness in accessing breaks that other breakers have (2B, Loren), for some of this other supportive moves in his kit.

    You might be able to do some or all of the coming trials without a dedicated breaker. Not so sure if you can with that team, since usually teams that do that have high-end gears and units. (I think @Beelzeboss can weigh in on the matter.) You shall see, I suppose :)

    I just have 6* of him though, still awesome.

    And... maybe enhancements possible?


    @Arnatuile
    Prishes Eye xd

    or

    Friend.


    Beryl + Prishes make me super flexible here. When i need magic break and magic cover first turn i can just add another magic tank as friend unit OR a magic breaker.

    Beryl is a breaker, provoker, magic tank, counter healer and a chainer DPS in a cute nutshell ::ink::

    I would only use him as a breaker against ST trials, in those situations he is more than adequate with a high tide Bowie knife or something
    Against aoe you’ll wanna bring a dedicated breaker and use him as a provoke evade tank and aoe chaos wave chainer

    Or I guess even Aoe cover with aoe chaining

    He can just fill so many holes depending on the need

    Holes. lol.

    Ye, ye... me perv.


    As breaker for me he is rather for maintaining the Prishes Eye breaks, which he can easily do while tanking.

    For magic break first turn i can either use friend tank/breaker or just rely on Beryl surviving it(with the right gear) without magic break or try with LMF reraise.

    And there is still Chaos Grenade, which i usually put on LMF.

    So here is what I don’t get: what content is the effectiveness measured against? I mean, is this from going against the story mode battles?

    We haven’t really had hard new trials since his release.

    Meh, half-baked everything. I’d still run the traditional breaker - tank - healer - support - chainer - chainer team.

    He can role compress but everything he does, someone else does much better. And he can’t tank and do all the other things simultaneously.

    Ofc he can. Just not tank and break first turn... like every other tank?

    His craziest stuff no other tank can do.
