Ellen's Strength

High DMG Attacker with Fast Movement

Ellen is an Attacker that can deal high damage and move quickly by dashing. Her fast movement makes it easier to take care of enemies at a distance and it can also connect to a dash attack while continuously dealing high damage.

Dash and Anti-Interrupt/Invulnerable State Allows Continuous Attacks

Ellen can avoid taking damage while dashing and enters an Anti-Interrupt/Invulnerable State while Dash Charging, so it's easy to perform a combo without worrying about enemy attacks. She is also good against bosses that are not Stunned so you can also have a team with no Stun Character.

Also Great at Defeating Weaker Enemies

Ellens attacks can reach multiple enemies at once, making it useful against weaker enemies as well. Her 3rd hit of the Basic Attack can also pull enemies together, so she is great at both boss battles and weaker enemies.

NoteShe can also warp on her 3rd hit of her Basic Attack after her EX Special Attack, so you can move from one enemy to the other easily.

Ellen's Weakness

Double EX Special Attack Requires lots of Energy

Ellen's EX Special Attack and Basic Attack combo is powerful if you perform both moves, but this consumes 80 energy. Even with MAX Energy, it can't be used twice in a row. Although it is powerful it can rarely be used repeatedly.

Ellen - Best Team Comp

Freeze & Disorder Team

AttackStunSupport
EllenEllenLycaonLycaonRinaRina

Double Attribute Ellen Team

Combine Ellen, who is a powerful Ice Attribute Attacker, with Electric Attributes. You can activate all Additional Abilities and it's easy to apply Disorder Anomaly. You can use Nekomata or Corin if you don't have Ellen.

Use Ellen after Enemy is Stunned

You will be using the basic strategy, Stun the enemy with a Stun Character, Switch to a Support Character and use Quick Assist, then use the Attack Character to deal damage. You want to deal high burst damage when the enemy is stunned so it's better if you have enough Flash Freeze Charge with Ellen.

TipsEllen can fight alone against weaker enemies.

Low Cost Gacha Soukaku Team

AttackStunSupport
EllenEllenAnbyAnbySoukakuSoukaku

Great Match with Soukaku

Soukaku is the same Attribute with Ellen and can activate the Additional Ability. Also, Soukaku has a powerful Ice Attribute buff. Anby won't be able to use her Additional Ability but she can increase DMG for Ellen by gathering enemies and using Ice buffs and debuffs.

Anby is Replaceable

You won't be able to use the Additional Ability for the 3rd character, so you can use any non-Ice Stun, Anomaly or Defense character. Grace can apply Anomaly effects and Ben can endure enemy attacks.

Ellen - Strategy and Combo

Fight while Maintaining "Flash Freeze Charge" with Dash Attack

Ellen Joe's main focus is to charge the "Flash Freeze Charge" with a Dash Charge Attack, and consume the charge to perform a powerful Basic Attack by holding down the button on the third hit. Dash to move around and use the Charge attack and always maintain 3 or more stacks of “Flash Freeze Charge”.

The Second Hit of EX Special Attack

Ellen's EX Special Attack can be used twice in a row to perform a wide range attack, but the firepower itself is higher if you use the EX Special Attack 1st hit then connect to Basic Attack 3rd hit. Use both depending on the situation, such as whether there are weak enemies or not.

Tips!When using EX Special Attack then connecting to the Basic Attack, "Flash Freeze Charge" will be charged by 1 stack, so you will be able to deal Ice DMG.
