What Kind Of Character Is Wriothesley?

Wriothesley Is A Main DPS That Deals Damage With Normal & Charged Attack

Cryo Normal Attacker

Wriothesley is a character from Fontaine that is a Main DPS and requires on-field time. Wriothesley deals damage mainly using a combo of boosted Normal Attacks and Charged Attack.

Reduces His Own HP For More DMG & Heals Them Back

Wriothesley can reduce his own HP and boost his attacks using Elemental Skill and get them all back after performing combos. This makes him an excellent user of Marechaussee Hunter Set. Wriothesley also has a passive that increases his ATK when his HP increases or decreases.

Strengths & Weakness Of Wriothesley

- Amazing Cryo DMG from Normal Attacks and Elemental Skill
↳ Do not have a high energy recharge to be strong.
- Normal Attack combos does not break even after sprinting.
- Flexible team comps and can be used at Melt and Freeze teams.
- With proper use, he is able to self-sustain himself.
- HP range requirement of Wriothesley's passive and skills can make it difficult to use all parts of his kit at C0.
↳ With a healer, Special Charged Attack may not activate but it is too dangerous to use Wriothesley without a healer.
↳ C1 is helpful to solve this issue.
- Low resistance to interruption without a shielder.

C1 Or C2 Is Recommended

Wriothesley becomes significantly stronger at C1, which makes it easier to use Charged Attacks, and with C2, it greatly enhances his Burst.

If you can afford it, aim for a further increase in firepower at C2.

Whoever moved Wriothesley to A tier really should NOT be ranking anything in this game.

Anonymous 12

Why is Solar Pearl not on the list? Is it not a pretty good weapon option for him since it boosts both NA and E.Skill DMG?
