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.

Katalina best DPS build

Since you want Katalina to be a frontline DPS, you should focus on stats that increase her Crit Rate, Crit DMG, ATK, Damage Cap, and make sure she has the War Elemental Sigil. All DPS characters want to run the War Elemental Sigil as well so that all her attacks are effective regardless of the enemy’s weakness.

Focus on Sigils like Quick Cooldown, Cascade, Stamina, Life on the Line, and Drain. At a high enough level, Katalina can sustain herself with the passive HP she gets from Drain, which will keep her topped off and out of danger.

Katalina best weapon

The best weapon for Katalina is the Murgleis or the Luminiera Sword Omega. Both of these weapons have their own Traits, and the Luminiera Sword comes with Crit rate and Crit damage innately. Meanwhile, the Murgleis has an Attack and HP boost. Naturally, when you eventually get Katalina’s Terminus Weapon – the Blutgang – you should use that over anything else.

✓ Jack’s opinion

Stinger weapons or Ascension?

Stinger weapon types have Crit rate and damage innately, so that helps build out her other stats. Ascension weapons can be Awakened at maximum level, granting more stats and bonuses. Pick the one you have levelled the most.
