Site Review

Dungeons:
  • GB10 – (Rating: 7.0/10) Josephine is a reliable buff stripper and decent Damage Dealer (DD). Activates a shield for allies when stunned, a good +1 for beginner and mid-tier teams. Not recommended for speed clear teams.
  • DB10 – (Rating: 6.5/10) Can strip boss from immunity but the shield won’t activate because there are no enemy stunners on boss wave. Similar to GB10, she is only good for beginner to mid tier teams.
  • NB10 – (Not recommended) Single-hit attacks and and 0 utility.
Scenario:

(Not recommended) Too slow to clear enemy waves.

Raids: 
  • R5 – (Rating: 6.0/10) Good support/tank early raids but provide 0 utility compared to units like Darion, Delphoi, Dias and the likes.
  • Element Rift Beasts – (Not recommended)
ToA: 

(Not Recommended) Other farmable units outshine her.

PvP: 

(Rating: 8/10) Josephine is good against Defenses that rely on stuns/freeze to control attackers (Okeanos, Verad, Despair set users). When she catches the inability effect, it activates her passive skill to automatically cleanse and gets a turn. This will also result in generating a shield buff to your allies equivalent to 20% of HP. We would suggest using her only on offense because she gets easily countered as a defensive unit.

How to Counter:

Her skills says it all. Josephine needs to be stunned/frozen in order to activate her passive skill. When facing against her, avoid bringing Despair set users. ATB reduction and slow debuff is a better alternative to control Josephine’s turn pacing. However if you insist to use stunners despite her passive skill, make sure to follow-up with AOE buff strip to remove the shield (ex. Aquilla, Triton, Tiana, Gemini).

Other advice:
  • Rune her speedy and 0 resistance. Speed to hasten the cooldown of 3rd skill and 0 resistance to catch the inability effect and successfully activate the passive skill.
  • Don’t use her as a Defensive unit because attackers can easily counter her by bringing a non-stun/freeze team.
  • She can only shine in PvP with her 3rd skill maxed. Stat priority: HP% > SPD > DEF% > ATK% > Accu%
Editor’s Note:

Josephine’s use is very specific thus making her one of the unappreciated units of the Paladin family. She could be good in early-mid game progression for dungeon farming and then later become more specific towards PvP. Despite the limitation she has, when used properly she can do her role extremely well (i.e. against Okeanos, Verad and stunners). In a good note, Josephine’s base stats are high with great HP growth and balanced ATK and DEF stats. We suggest building her if you need a Niche PvP Offense that fits to her skill description such as Real-time arena last picks.
