Discouraged Ranks Thanks to his flexible skillset, the Jester can adapt and perform well on any Rank, depending on the skills he equips



🔸The Jester is a particularly mobile Hero, as most offensive skills of his skillset require him to change position around the team composition to unleash his full potential. Due to his rather erratic movements, the Jester may present risk when fit into a team who requires Rank consistency or lacks flexibility in movement. Notably, the Jester excels at applying Dd2 token comboCombo, possessing 4 skills that can inflict said Token in total, more than any other Heroes. Due to his highly flexible skillset with a good target reach, the Jester can reliably perform on any Rank, especially on middle Ranks. Jester has a more supporting role on Rank 3 where he can effectively Dd2 token stressStress heal, buff his team or Pull targets, while on Rank 2 he can use Dd2 ability finale Finale to deal a strong blow on resilient targets.

Separator

🔸Offense: The Jester's skillset mainly revolves around movement, and as such, it it better to pair him with Heroes with high Rank flexibility to adapt to allies' movement (Portraits-highwaymanHighwayman,Portraits-graverobberGrave Robber, etc.). While thePortraits-leperLeper, who is severely lacking in terms of mobility, may seem like a bad companion for the Jester, he can use Dd2 ability bash Bash to apply Dd2 token immobilizeImmobilize on himself to avoid being moved by Jester's said skills. At the same time, if used in a right way; Dd2 ability bash Bash, as well as similar skills that apply Dd2 token immobilizeImmobilize (Portraits-hellionHellion's Dd2 ability toetotoe Toe to Toe orPortraits-manatarmsMan-at-Arms' Dd2 ability holdtheline Hold the Line), can also lock the Jester in his place and give him extra chances to use certain movement skills. For example, if thePortraits-leperLeper has Dd2 token immobilizeImmobilize on Rank 1, the Jester can use Dd2 ability razorswit Razor's Wit on Rank 2 without losing access to it.

  • One of the Jester's primary offensive moves is the combination of Dd2 ability razorswit Razor's Wit and Dd2 ability fadetoblack Fade to Black, both of which move the Jester back and forth and reduce enemies' accuracy, potentially forcing them miss highly damaging attacks. Both skills can apply Dd2 token comboCombo on enemies, which enable additional effects of allies' skills (Stun dd2Stun fromPortraits-manatarmsMan-at-Arms or higher CRIT chance forPortraits-graverobberGrave Robber).
  • Jester can utilize a combo of Dd2 ability solo Solo and Dd2 ability finale Finale to quickly take down tough enemies (especially large-sized ones). Dd2 ability solo Solo will be the prime move to inflict Dd2 token comboCombo and apply Dd2 token dodgeplusDodge+ on the Jester for defense, then followed by Dd2 ability finale Finale, which deals double damage to targets with Dd2 token comboCombo. If Dd2 ability solo Solo is not available, use Dd2 ability razorswit Razor's Wit or upgraded Dd2 ability fadetoblack Fade to Black. To avoid spending a turn for Dd2 ability solo Solo, the player may want to bring Heroes with Combo-inflicting skills (Portraits-highwaymanHighwayman,Portraits-manatarmsMan-at-Arms, etc.). Notably,Portraits-highwaymanHighwayman's Dd2 ability trackingshot Tracking Shot can both apply Dd2 token comboCombo and remove all Dd2 token dodgeDodge and Dd2 token dodgeplusDodge+ from Jester's targets, guaranteeing his destructive Dd2 ability finale Finale hit.
  • Sometimes, maintaining the Jester's position to avoid disrupting party compositions can be a better option. In such cases, use either Dd2 ability sliceoff Slice Off or Dd2 ability harvest Harvest to assault mid-Rank targets and apply Bleed dd2Bleed to them. While Dd2 ability sliceoff Slice Off does not apply Dd2 token comboCombo like Dd2 ability razorswit Razor's Wit and Dd2 ability fadetoblack Fade to Black, it applies a Dd2 token vulnerableVulnerable Token for a harder subsequent hit. Dd2 ability harvest Harvest can simultaneously apply Dd2 token comboCombo on multiple targets, albeit with a significantly lower chance (25 - 33%).

Separator

🔸Survivability: As the Jester has a particularly low Icon HP dd2HP, he mainly depends on his Dd2 token dodgeDodge and Dd2 token dodgeplusDodge+ Tokens gained from Dd2 ability razorswit Razor's Wit and Dd2 ability solo Solo to avoid taking too much damage. Dd2 ability fadetoblack Fade to Black is equally useful as well, applying Dd2 token blindBlind on enemies to make them miss their attacks.

Separator

🔸Support: The Jester can be considered to be among the most effective Dd2 token stressStress healers. Dd2 ability inspiringtune Inspiring Tune can be used on Jester himself and his teammates alike, healing up to 3 Dd2 token stressStress and removing Dd2 token horror Horror. However, the Dd2 token stressStress heal only applies if allies have at least 5 Dd2 token stressStress, a typical drawback of most Stress-healing skills.

  • Beside Dd2 token stressStress heals, the Jester's arsenal offers skills that either move teammates forward or backward if they are displaced by enemies. Dd2 ability playout Play Out is primarily used to protect back-Rank Heroes, providing them with Dd2 token blockBlock or Dd2 token blockplusBlock+, while also pushing them back if they are pulled to the front. Dd2 ability playout Play Out will have more use if the Heroes' party encounters enemies that tend to target back-Rank Heroes and deal a huge amount of damage to them, such as Arbalist. In contrast to Dd2 ability playout Play Out, Dd2 ability battleballad Battle Ballad pushes a Hero the front and applies a Dd2 token strengthStrength Token for a stronger attack. It is preferably used on front-liners with limited mobility (Portraits-leperLeper) or with skills that have strict Rank requirement but deals great damage (Portraits-highwaymanHighwayman,Portraits-manatarmsMan-at-Arms, and Portraits-hellionHellion).
  • Dd2 ability echoingmarch Echoing March, unlike other similar skills, does not only pull enemies to the front, but also applies on them an additional Pull effect that triggers every time they begin their turns. As such, Dd2 ability echoingmarch Echoing March is highly effective against troublesome back-Rank enemies that always attempts to move away from the front if given the chance, particularly Cherubs. Furthermore, the constant Pull effect from the skill may disrupt enemy Ranks, preventing them from using certain effective skills.
  • Dd2 ability encore Encore is a quite unique skill among Heroes, being the only one that can grant extra actions. Dd2 ability encore Encore allows teammates to perform demanding skill combos within just a single turn. For example, thePortraits-leperLeper can use Dd2 ability ruin Ruin and Dd2 ability withstand Withstand (or Dd2 ability intimidate Intimidate) to prepare a lethal hit. Similarly, the Portraits-hellionHellion can use Dd2 ability bleedout Bleed Out and Dd2 ability bloodlust Bloodlust for extra damage onBleed dd2Bleed targets in the next turn. ThePortraits-manatarmsMan-at-Arms can gain Dd2 token blockBlock and Dd2 token blockplusBlock+ through various skills (Dd2 ability standfast Stand Fast, Dd2 ability holdtheline Hold the Line, Dd2 ability defender Defender, etc.) and immediately use Dd2 ability courageousabandon Courageous Abandon for massive damage against Rank 1.
