Lanz - Soul Tree Recommended Path

Prioritize To Unlock Arts Canceling

Arts Canceling

The moment you Unlock Arts Canceling, you are able to utilize Arts in succession. This enables you to hasten the use of Ouroboros. This should be a priority no matter what character.

Also Prioritize Talent Art Upgrade

The Talent Art Upgrade adds a special effect for each character in addition to the 1000%-1400% power multiplier. Prioritizing Talent Art Upgrade provides great improvement to your capabilities in combat.

Skills Acquisition Priority

Hefty Protection Priority: High
Reduces damage taken by allies in a fixed radius by 20%
Steady Advance Priority: High
Grants 100% resistance to combos and reactions while Art is active.
Strength in Adversity Priority: Mid
Grants a small increase to damage dealt the more enemies target you (up to a maximum of 300%).
Reflection Priority: Low
5% chance to reflect enemy attack.

Lanz is recommended to be the frontier of the party during combat. It is also ideal to use the same tactic during Interlink being the Defender that gets the Aggro of the enemies.

Utilizing Titan Fists

Get the Aggro of the enemies with Burning Rain and if the enemy guards, it is recommended to use Titan Fists, which applies the Shackle Blocking debuff.
