Analysis

Overview

Luluca is a premier defense Hero who still has strong offensive options. Her kit consists of a unique teamwide Shield and DEF buff, a damage-ramping S3 that also applies AoE DEF break, and an S1 that gets stronger the longer the fight goes.

Strengths

Unique Teamwide Shield/DEF Buff

Luluca has the strongest defensive-style buffing in the game, with a combination of an ATK-scaling Shield and the vaunted DEF Up buff. This makes her a valuable asset in tough Abyss stages and challenge-type content. With some medium investment, she also gets the cooldown reduced to just 3 turns, on a buff that lasts 2 turns! With some CR pushing, you can have almost constant Shield and DEF Up.

AoE DEF Break on Ramping S3

Luluca can also deal a nice amount of damage as the fight progresses, with her combination of AoE DEF Break and damage ramp on her S3, Wave of Vengeance. Each time she uses her S3, its damage goes up by 20% for a max of 60%. The chance of DEF Break maxes out at 75%, which is quite standard for an AoE DEF Breaker.

Strong Base ATK and DEF Values

In addition to the advantages above, Luluca has some of the highest base ATK/DEF values in the game, beating all other Ice heroes in raw ATK power and ranking near the top in DEF as well. Given her Shield scaling, which is a portion of her raw ATK value, this is quite advantageous for her.

Weaknesses

Vulnerable to Mass Dispel

As with all other buffers, Luluca suffers immensely when enemies can dispel her buffs. Some fights will require you to hold her S2 until the right time.

Takes a While to Ramp/Only Average Speed

Luluca also suffers from a slow rampup. While her S3 at max stacks does a considerable amount of damage,  it takes at least 15 turns to hit with a maximum stack. For reference, Corvus on Abyss 85 has a 20-turn enrage.

This is exacerbated by Luluca's middling Speed value, as she only has 103 base Speed (which would be considered amazing on a Soul Weaver, but alas, she is decidedly average for a Mage).

As such, encounters often end before her full firepower can be brought to bear.

Demanding Stat Spread

Luluca is stat-hungry. To perform her role best, she needs a mixture of practically every stat - EFF, ATK%, and SPD being key. As such, she can be difficult to optimize correctly, as pushing one stat invariably means that one of her other roles is hurt - without Effectiveness, her DEF Break will not land; without ATK, her Shield value is low and her damage suffers, and without Spd, her turns come too slowly.

This is somewhat mitigated when you have decently rolled substats on gear.

Unreliable DEF Break

Lastly, Luluca’s DEF Break coverage is subpar. Combined with the baseline 75% chance for DEF Break that most AoE’s carry, her S3 is only a 4-turn CD. Without another DEF breaker, Luluca will never do as much damage as she could, since she cannot exploit her own S3. It is therefore recommended to use her with another DEF breaker.

Builds

My Little Loli Can’t Be This Cute!

This build sacrifices some EFF% and ATK for the Speed needed to keep her S2/S3 uptime as high as possible. Most PvE encounters will require a maximum of 70% Effectiveness, so unless you plan to use Luluca for PvP as well, you only need the bare minimum. The rest can go into Speed and Attack substats, with the dregs going into Critical Chance/Damage. This will ensure that Luluca's Shields are still decently powerful and that she can land her DEF Break. Due to Kal’Adra, Luluca’s damage output is pretty much guaranteed to be, at the very least, solid.

Team

Core

Luluca has good synergy with other DEF Breakers who can supplement her poor DEF Break uptime. She also has no way of actually healing, so having a Soul Weaver or off-healer is a good idea. Her defensive capabilities are strong enough that you might be able to make do with just an off-healer such as Blaze Dingo or Haste. An ideal teammate for her is someone like Chaos Sect Axe, who not only provides his own healing but can also assist her DEF Breaking.

Big Numbers

This build ditches the Speed for higher raw ATK value. This will make Luluca's Shield stop more damage, and will also bump her damage significantly. It also forgoes the EFF% for Crit Chance/Damage. This build is not recommended unless you already have a very reliable DEF breaker and just want more DPS.

Team

Core

As with the previous build, Luluca still benefits from having another DEF Breaker on the team (even moreso now, with her lower EFF%). In addition, she will benefit from CR pushers, who will help to alleviate her lower Speed stat and keep taking turns on a somewhat consistent basis. Tamarinne is an excellent partner for her ability to Cleanse and CR push. Lots can fill this role as well, to a lesser degree.
