Special Features
  • Adelheid casts a Storm on herself corresponding to the enemy's weakness if possible, otherwise matches the current day, followed by a -helix and nukes of her storm's element unless magic bursting a skillchain.
    • Will change storms under certain conditions such as BLMs casting Freeze (which modifies enemy resistances).
    • For Light/Dark storms, she only casts helix since there are no matching elemental nukes.
  • During a skillchain, magic bursts a helix matching the skillchain's element without preparing a -storm first.
  • Casts Stun to interrupt enemy TP moves.
  • Casts Cure spells on party members under 33% (red) hp, with a higher threshold and priority for the tank.Verification Needed
  • Despite using Dark Arts, her healing potency/cost/cast times do not appear to suffer any detrimental effects.Verification Needed
  • Gains 100 TP per hit with her melee attacks. Tries to use TP as soon as she gets it, but may have other priorities.
  • Adelheid's weapon skills all do magic damage and the Microtubes additionally apply status effects.
  • Her weapon skills seem to have a longer delay before you can skillchain with them: try timing follow-up weapon skills starting from when the vial explodes, not from when the ability is used.
  • Twirling Dervish requires level 50.
