1st Anniversary Banners - Top 5 Characters to Roll for

For the 1st Anniversary Banners, due to the fact that it requires 60 pity for 1 S Rank Construct, Players will need to prioritize certain characters to roll for. If you have a special spot in your heart for a certain character, you should absolutely go for them, however, or players who want to go with the game’s meta, here’s the top 5 characters you should absolutely try and roll for in order to stay on top of the game for the year to come.

5. Kamui - Tenebrion

An S Rank Dark Element Tank Class Construct, Kamui -Tenebrion is one of the game’s oldest characters, available since the very launch of the game. However, even if he’s old in terms of release, even till this day in the CN server 2 years later, Kamui still holds the ground as one of the best Dark Element Constructs in the game.

A kit filled with powerful blows and fast movement, relying on his burst to turns his entire kit into the dark element, Kamui is able to utilize his broadsword not only to crush the enemies’ Super Armor, but also deal massive amount of Dark Elemental damage to a large field of enemies in the process.

The only reason why he’s low on this list is due to his accessibility, as players can easily choose him from the launch S Rank Selection Ticket, however, he’s still a solid choice to consider rolling for during this special anniversary banner.

4. Lucia - Alpha

The first new rated up character when the game first launched and one of the game’s poster child, Lucia - Alpha is a Attacker Class Physical Damage dealer that is infamous for her ability to deal massive amounts of damage over a short period of time.

Her kit allows her to deal with both close-ranged and long-ranged combat, making an all-rounder in dealing massive amounts of Physical damage to enemies.

The only reason why she’s at number 4 is due to the newly introduced Nier:Automata Collaboration Characters who can partly fill her role as another option.

3. Rosetta - Vigor

A Physical Tank Class Construct, Rosetta is a recently introduced Constructs and is one of the most essential pieces to a good Physical Damage team.

Rosetta’s strength lies in the fact that she can shred enemies’ Super Armor with relative ease all the while reducing enemies’ Physical Resistance to up to 60%, making any amount of Physical Damage coming their way being amplified. 

If you are planning to play a Physical Damage team, Rosetta is a piece that you can’t miss and must absolutely roll for during the 1st anniversary banners.

2. Bianca - Veritas

The only Lightning type Attacker class Construct in the game, Veritas is one of the best DPS options available for players to consider rolling.

With an easy to use kit and extreme mobility, Veritas allows players the enjoyment of standing afar and shooting everything dead from the outside. In addition, the Lightning team, consisting of A Chrome, A Liv and Veritas, is one of the cheapest and best DPS teams in the game currently, making the investment into rolling for Veritas a worthwhile endeavor.

1. Lucia - Plume

The other poster child of the game, Lucia Plume is currently the only Ice Element Attacker Class Construct. Similar to Veritas, Blume fills the role of helping players as a main dps, allowing them to deal with contents that require the Ice element with ease.

Blume’s kit allows her to deal massive amounts of damage with minimal effort and even allows her to do well in contents that require other elements other than Ice. In addition, the Ice team will receive massive upgrades in the future in the form of S Chrome and Wanshi, making it the best DPS team currently in the CN server aside from the Nier team, so rolling for Lucia - Blume will prove to be a well-deserved investment for the future.
