Striker Characteristics And Tips
A Role That Excels At Dealing Damage
|Strength||Has high offensive stats, and big damage dealing moves.|
|Weakness||Lower Hp, defense stats and is thus more vulnerable compared with other roles.|
Make The Striker The Main Focus Of Your Team
Your Striker is the main firepower of your team. However, they aren't as durable as other roles. How much damage your Striker can actually dish out will be the key deciding factor in a battle. Make Striker the key component of your team, and have other roles back him up accordingly.

Has good survivability due to high HP.
|Weakness||Struggles at dealing high damage.|
Solo performance may be lacking compared with others.
Use Support Moves Early In Battle
Support roles are good at buffing allies or healing. To get the most out of their buffs, use their moves early in the battle.
Tech Characteristics And Tips
Interfere With The Enemy Using Debuffs & Restrictions
|Strength||Good at disrupting enemy tactics with weakening & restricting moves and abilities.|
|Weakness||Can potentially be useless if the enemy is immune or resistant to its debuffs.|
A Role That Depends Heavily On The Enemy Composition
Techs excels at weakening & restricting enemy units. When used properly, they can shut down the enemy long enough for your Striker to do the job. However, their effectiveness varies greatly with enemy's resistances, so always confirm the enemy team members before bringing in a Tech.
