**Noelle is particularly good as she is a Geo Claymore character (great for shields) that can also fill the healing role.

Ley Line Disorder

  • Characters on the field will continuously accumulate Sheer Cold, and will continually lose HP after Sheer Cold reaches its limit.
  • Opponents will attack the Ruin Braziers, preventing them from diminishing the effects of Sheer Cold in the area. Deactivated Ruin Braziers will restart after a while.

Simply stay near the Ruin Braiziers (totems) to reduce Sheer Cold.
