A carefree boy of small stature from the future who wields a large axe. It seems he is aiming to become the "World's strongest woodcutter", but because trees are treasured in the future he is chased away by the EGPD whenever he attempts to cut down a tree. Thanks to authorities, the source of his worries is that he is a woodcutter who has never cut down a tree.
Philo is a water-elemental damage support/attacker with resourceful skill set to boost party damage and survivability.
· With a high cost MP skill set, he requires careful MP management in longer battles.
· There’s a small number of Ax damage users, so his resourcefulness is somewhat limited to gacha results.
Philo is primarily used to increase party physical damage output, especially when there are additional ax users in the party. You will likely have to choose between using him for water or axe teams, since there is little chance you will equip both Fruits of Desire and Fontaine.
· Increasing physical and ax/water party damage output
· Mob clearing, albeit expensive
· Reducing incoming damage from elemental attacks and magic-based attacks.
Philo is a versatile support for any physical team setup, especially one with more Ax users. The rare uses of Ax users mono team and better future options for critical rate buffer make him a less ideal damage support choice for future content.
This is also a woodcutter's practice!
Power of all party members +10% and Type resistance +10% (1 turn)
Looks like there's something to cut!
Power of all party members +20% and Type resistance +20% (1 turn)
I will be the best woodcutter ever!
Power of all party members +30% and Type resistance +30% (1 turn)
A nice VC that increases party’s physical damage output and survivability against elemental attacks and none-type magic.
Sprout of Hope
Water type slash attack on a single enemy (S) and Ax equipped characters' damage +20% (2 turns)
Water type slash attack on a single enemy (S)
Slash attack on all enemies (S) and Restore all party members' HP by 10%
Water type slash attack on a single enemy x2 (M) and Water type attack of all party members +20% (3 turns)
This skill increases water damage output of the party. It is also a less MP consuming move to charge AF while increasing Philo’s damage.
Type resistance of all party members +30% and MP Regen (S) (3 turns)
A decent buff to increase party’s survivability against elemental attacks and none-type magic. While MP Regen won’t be enough to make his MP problem goes away, it is a nice cherry on top.
Genius of Wisdom
Water type slash attack on a single enemy (L) and Ax equipped characters' damage +35% (2 turns)
Water type slash attack on all enemies (XL) and Critical Rate of all party members +35% (3 moves)
This skill greatly increases damage output of physical attackers in the party and can be utilized for mob clear. When casted after Fruits of Desire (for a team around Ax units) or his V,C (for mixed physical team), it gives a significant boost for the party AF damage.
Fruits of Desire
Water type slash attack on a single enemy x2 (XL) and Ax equipped characters' damage +50% (2 turns)
A clear-cut damage dealing move that greatly boosts ax users’ damage in your party, it may be used to support current hard hitting units like Nagi AS and Renri.
