Overview

  • More focused on support as an element, much like its force tree counterpart Ice. With that said...
  • Ragrants is a universal high DPS tech, if not the highest. Ilgrants also has some use for dps or status. Gigrants Type 0 can have some use where Zondeel doesn't work so well/ at all. Resta and Anti are staples to any caster.
  • Other damaging techs are typically outdone by alternatives in different elements.
    • This is primarily because outside of Ragrants, light's offensive techniques have a default charge of 1.2s instead of a flat 1s.
  • Light causes the Panic status effect, which can make enemies target other enemies instead of you.
    • This doesn't make you immune from their attacks, however.
    • Like other elements, can be used on some bosses for a special effect. In the case of light, it's always a special stun animation for a free exposed weakpoint.

  • Generates bullets of light above the target that immediately rain down on it.
    • Uncharged hits for 33% of its power notation. Charged hits for 5 hits for 20% of its power notation.
    • Default effective range is about 50m charged, and 23m-24m uncharged. If Free-Aim is used, effective range becomes infinite.
    • If Lock-On is being used, this Tech can hit targets behind obstructions.
    • When charged, all hits will connect regardless of any changes in positioning of the target.
    • Can strike a different target if it is in direct proximity to the original target.

Gigrants
ギ・グランツ
Intermediate light technique. Creates a blade of light to drive away surrounding enemies.

Link Charge 1.20 Sec
  • Summons blades of light surrounding the caster or Talis that strikes all nearby targets repeatedly.
    • Uncharged hits 1 time initially, 1 for the "circling blade". Charged hits 1 time initially, 5 hits for the "circling blade".
    • Each hit of the charged version hits for 20% of its power notation, for a total 120% power.
    • Possesses slightly disjointed vertical reach beneath the point of casting. Viable if casting in mid-air or free-aimed with Talis.
Craft type Merit Demerit Special
Brilliant 1 Power +30~60% Charge Time +0.10~0.30s
2 Power +60~100% Charge Time +0.05~0.25s
3 Power +70~110% Status Effect Rate -20~10%
Concentrated 1 Charge Time -0.40~0.10s Power -60~10%
2 Charge Time -0.50~0.20s Power -50~10%
3 Charge Time -0.55~0.35s Power -30~5%

Brilliant:

  • Max possible power boost for Brilliant 3 is 12.0~18.8% when used on a Lv. 17 Gigrants.
  • Status Rate demerit can be ignored due to Ilgrants' usage as a Panic setter.

Concentrated:

  • This does boost your effective dps, but at the cost of pp.
    • Most useful if it's to be used on a thrown talis, since you only have so much time to cast before it disappears.
  • Note that because the default charge time for this technique is 1.2s instead of the usual 1s of most other techniques, other elements may still be better should they have a "concentrated" version.

Craft type Merit Demerit Special
Type 0 Power +0~185% PP +0~10
  • Surrounds the caster or Talis with spinning blades of light while charging. When fully charged, releasing the charge causes a massive blade of light to emerge and strike all nearby targets.
    • Consumes 20 PP on startup, then continuously drains 10 PP/sec while charging.
      • Charge Revival has no effect while charging this Technique.
      • Initial PP cost can be reduced by PP cost reduction effects such as Tech Arts PP Save and Drink effects.
    • Unaffected by Charge Escape, L/Tech C Parrying, and L/Jet Boots TA Short Charge.
    • Each tick deals 10% of its power notation during charge. Final blade deals 50% of its power notation.
      • Spinning blades qualify as "normal Techniques" for the purposes of specific Skills and Potentials that increase its power, such as Normal Tech Advance and the Potential.png Innocent Appearance potential. The final hit is counted as charged, so skills like Tech Charge Advance for force only affects the final hit.
      • Each tick of this Tech hits in roughly 0.35-0.40s intervals (very slightly slower than Ramegid Type 0).
    • Final blade has a deceptively wide, lingering hitbox, disjointed vertical reach, and knocks down on hit.
    • Most viable in mobbing situations where Zondeel fails, such as certain large enemies unaffected by vacuum effects or where Ultimate Infection Cores are involved.

  • Fires a ray of light that pierces targets.
    • Does 1 hit if uncharged, 5 hits if charged.
    • Charged deals 20% of its power notation for 5 hits. Charged range is roughly 13m~14m.
    • Possesses a lingering hitbox. Other actions or recasts can be performed while the beam is active.
    • Slight impact delay between the ray hitting and damage ticking. Delay can be mitigated by casting at point-blank range or at the target's position.
    • Hitbox length is roughly half of what the Tech appears to look like from the side. Also possesses a deceptively wide hitbox width. Accuracy can be increased if a Talis is used to position the cast.
Craft type Merit Demerit Special
Brilliant 1 Power +400~500% PP Cost +3~10
2 Power +600~700% PP Cost +2~9
3 Power +720~800% PP Cost +1~8
Concentrated 1 Charge Time -0.60~0.30s Power -65~50%
2 Charge Time -0.65~0.35s Power -60~40%
3 Charge Time -0.70~0.40s Status Effect Rate -20~10%

Brilliant:

  • Brilliant 3 increases raw damage by roughly 61.0%~67.8% when paired with a Lv. 17 Ragrants.

Concentrated:

  • Charge time reduction on Concentrated 3 immensely boosts effective DPS. Concentrated 3 Ragrants is among the strongest Techs available, but requires support from accelerated PP regeneration, such as Ketos Proi or PP Convert, for maximum effectiveness. This also makes it a viable Compound Tech Gauge builder due to its incredible DPS.
  • Increased DPS additionally boosts effective hitstop.
  • Status Rate Demerit can be ignored due to Ilgrants' usage as a Panic setter.

  • Generates a field of light energy that repeatedly hits anything that approaches it or within the field itself.
    • Hits for 15% of its power notation per hit, regardless of charge.
    • Uncharged cast hits 3 times for 2s of uptime. Charged cast hits 7 times for 6s of uptime.
    • Strikes targets closer to the point of origin; does not hit multiple enemy parts simultaneously.
    • Significant hitstop and stagger with each hit. Viable for trapping smaller enemies or "walling" them.
    • Slightly smaller radius than Gifoie.
    • Each Nagrants cast will have full effectiveness, regardless of the number deployed at any given instance.
    • Its effects will cease if the current weapon is switched, similar to a Support Technique.
Craft type Merit Demerit Special
Multi-Hit 1 Hit Interval -0.30~0.20s Charge Time +0.20s~0.30s (Max charged hits +1~2)
2 Hit Interval -0.30~0.20s Charge Time +0.15s~0.25s (Max charged hits +1~2)

Brilliant 1 Power +50~100% PP Cost +3~10
2 Power +160~190% PP Cost +2~9
3 Power +170~200% Status Effect Rate -20~10%

Multi-Hit:

  • Increases maximum effective ticks per cast in exchange for increased charge time. Also gives a Status Rate boost at Multi-Hit 3.
  • Extra hits increase effective DPS by 28.6% and increases stagger/hitstop frequency.

Brilliant:

  • Brilliant 3 Craft increases raw power by roughly 20.0%~23.5% when paired with Lv. 17 Nagrants. Brilliant 3 Demerit can be ignored due to Ilgrants' use as a Panic setter.
  • Not particularly viable due to Nagrants' overall low DPS despite solid DPP; outpaced by Multi-Hit 3 in DPS due to Multi-Hit 3's additional hits per cast.

Ilgrants

Link Charge 1.20 Sec
  • Fires multiple bullets of light that pursue targets. Possess an especially high rate of inflicting Panic.
    • Uncharged Ilgrants strikes for 7% of its notation for 3 hits. Charged cast strikes for 12% of its power notation for 10 hits.
    • Bullets will track your target, but will immediately disperse upon colliding with a valid target or obstacle.
      • Has minor spread if fired while using Lock-On. This issue can be resolved by using Free-Aim or jumping before casting. Talis users can also Free-Aim the Talis skyward to cast it from elevation.
      • Bullets can miss if the target is too flighty or too close to the origin of cast.
    • Ilgrants' max distance per projectile is about 60M charged or uncharged (and in a straight line). The projectile stays alive for about 2 seconds. Therefore, the speed of the projectile is 30m/s by default.
Craft type Merit Demerit Special
Swift 1 Speed +8.00~13.00 Status Effect Rate -40~20% Charge Time -0.10s
2 Speed +10.00~15.00 Status Effect Rate -38~18% Charge Time -0.15s
3 Speed +11.00~17.00 Status Effect Rate -20~10% Charge Time -0.25s
Brilliant 1 Power +200~300% Speed -14.00~12.00
2 Power +350~420% Speed -16.00~14.00
3 Power +460~520% Speed -20.00~17.00

Swift:

  • Boosts travel speed of the bullets and reduces charge time in exchange for Status Rate. Increases maximum effective range with a Swift 3 Craft by roughly 36.7~56.7% and also boosts DPS, but reduces usability at close range. Also reduces its usability as a status infliction Tech.

Brilliant:

  • Boosts raw power in exchange for bullet speed. Difficult to use on most normal enemies due to the reduction in speed and maximum effective range, but Brilliant 3 possesses the third highest DPS among Light Techniques and the highest DPP, making it an incredibly efficient Technique to use against bosses.
  • Brilliant 3 Craft boosts raw power by roughly 34.6%~39.1% when paired with a Lv. 17 Ilgrants and decreases maximum effective range by 56.7~66.7%.

  • Generates a field that heals players within its area of effect.
    • Heal scales off your base T-ATK. This includes your MAG, all T-ATK Up Skills, and increases to your base T-ATK, such as Photon Flare and Shifta, but excludes your weapon.
    • Calculation for Resta's charged heal per tick is equal to (T-ATK/4)*(Resta Power %)*(Resta Advance)*(Potential).
      • Uncharged heal per tick is equal to ~32% of one charged heal tick.
    • Like most other support techniques, casting any support technique that isn't Zondeel prematurely stops the field's effects, despite the animation still playing.
    • Specifically Shifta, Deband, Zanverse, Resta, Anti, and Megiverse share this behavior.
    • Base Resta range is approximately 1.5m uncharged, 6m charged. Territory Burst boosts range to roughly 3m uncharged, 10m charged, and Wide Support further boosts range to 5m uncharged, 13m charged.

Multi-Hit:

  • Trades a bit of power for one extra tick per charged cast, boosting effective charged healing by 14.2~21.8%

Brilliant:

  • PP cost increase can be nullified by a low Demerit and Territory PP Save.
  • Brilliant 3 increases healing by roughly 51.7~77.6% when paired with a Lv. 17 Resta.

  • Generates a field that cures status conditions. This field heals off all status conditions except for Jellen, Stun, and Weak Bullet.
    • Ticks similarly to Resta, Shifta, and Deband, despite only applying its effect once. Can be deployed early if you predict getting inflicted with the Freeze status, which you are unable to heal out of by yourself normally.
    • Possesses powerful synergy with the Techer Skill "Super Treatment".
