Best builds for Katalina
Katalina is a versatile character who can deal considerable damage and heal the party. Her Ares mechanic increases her DPS and support by a huge amount, making her a brilliantly powerful character. Her support is simply a nice bonus and this is because Katalina is mainly a DPS. Due to this, the best Katalina builds double down on her damage output.
Katalina has a combat mechanic in the Ares gauge, which will enhance her attacks depending on whether the gauge is full or not. When full, Ares can attack enemies and enhance skills, changing Katalina’s DPS and versatility.
Outside of damaging foes, Katalina has an Invincibility Skill and a potent AoE heal, both of which can be enhanced by Ares, granting the entire party the invincible status and restoring tremendous amounts of HP respectively.
