Barbara Character Overview & Evaluation

Top-Class Elemental Healer

Barbara is a character that is more or less a healing specialist. Both her Elemental Skill and Elemental Burst provide healign to the group, making her a character you add to your team when you want to play safer and keep healed up!

Useful AoE Charged Attack

Barbara's Charged Attack deals damage in an area and also applies a Hydro debuff to enemies. This is useful for triggering Elemental Reactions without relying on the use of an Elemental Skill!
