Nicole's Strength

Powerful Supporter that can Gather Enemies and Apply DEF Debuffs

Nicole has several skills that can gather enemies together and can also debuff enemy DEF, which is effective regardless of which Attribute your Attackers have. The Debuff doesn't last long but same as gathering enemies you can use them frequently during battle, making it especially useful against weaker enemies.

Energy Field Remains Effective for next Character

Her Special Attack, Combo and Ultimate that creates an Energy Field which pulls enemies remains effective for a while after switching characters with Reactive Assist. This makes it easier to defeat weaker enemies that move around by applying the DEF Debuff and switching to a strong Attacker.

Additional Ability Increases Ether DMG

Nicole doesn't just have versatile Support skills but also her Additional Ability that increases Ether DMG in addition to the DEF debuff she applies to enemies. This helps both Ether Attribute Attackers and her own attacks.

Nicole's Weakness

Debuff Duration is Quite Short

Even though Nicole's Defense and Ether Damage Debuff has a fairly large effect, the duration after attacking is only 2 seconds. Although it is possible to extend the time using the Energy Field after switching characters, it is difficult to utilize this when using attackers who do not have skills that deal instant damage.

Currently there are no Ether Attackers

Nicole can demonstrate even higher support performance for Ether attackers, but currently in Ver 1.0, Nicole is the only Ether Character. Currently there are no squads that can utilize her best performance.

Nicole - Best Team Comp

Early Game Cunning Hares Team

SupportAttackStun
NicoleNicoleBillyBillyAnbyAnby

Early Game Cunning Hares Team

You will be controlling the agents in this team in the early main game story. Their Attributes aren't the best match but they are easy to use. They can teach you how to use the most 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.

TipsBilly can attack long range, but the damage dealt will decrease so you need to stay close to the enemy.

Nekomata is a Good Alternative

Nekomata also belongs to Cunning Hares and deals high damage after using Quick Assist. Also a good match with Nicole's short buff, so you can include her instead of Billy if you want.

Nicole - Strategy and Combo

Place the Attacker in the Next Slot

Nicole leaves an energy field and debuff on the combat field for the next Attacker. The next character is determined by the order of characters in the team, so be sure to place the Attacker on her right (first slot when Nicole is placed in the third character slot)

Leave a Energy Field and Connect to the Attacker

Nicole leaves a energy field (and debuff) with a pulling effect with EX Special Attack or Signature Move Skills, which you can connect to the next Attacker with Quick Support. If you don't have enough energy, you can use attacks like Basic Attack to accumulate it, but try to switch as fast as possible.
