Noblesse Oblige Works Depending On The Team That Candace Supports

Noblesse Oblige is great for Candace since it give ATK buff for the team. If you have another Noblesse Oblige holder in the team or if the Main DPS does not scale from HP, Emblem and Tenacity will work better.

Prioritize Increasing HP While Having Balanced CRIT Stats

Using Candace as a Main DPS works well but requires a decent amount of investment. You need to create a balance of CRIT DMG and CRIT Rate while having around 30,000 HP. The main source of damage is Normal and Charge attacks making Heart of Depths a great set. You can use the substitute while you are farming for 4pc. Heart of Depth.

p:With Candace's shield raised up, she will block damage while her Elemental Skill is active. However, this should only work with a single attack and it cannot continue blocking indefinitely.

Deal Hydro Damage
