Very strong damage dealer for single target AND AoE
Top tier unit for cleaving (Sez bomb)
Attacking a unit to less than 50% health triggers an additional AoE attack
Full damage build with a good combat readiness team in the arena is very good
Low base defense
Falls off mid game but comes back strong late game once you can get end game gear
Sez cleave fails hard if you don't kill your target
Tier List Description
Sez is a good early game farmer until up to about world mode map 3. After that, you will need super good gear to be able to do it with ease. His passive triggers an additional AoE attack, which helps in farming.
Sez’s best skill is his third skill, which is a single target nuke that also deals AoE damage to surrounding enemies if he kills someone. If you soul burn it, the damage is very high. This is where Sez becomes a popular cleave unit in PvP, especially with a mage on the team to carry Tagahel’s Ancient Book (Auxiliary Lots is the best candidate).
With the Wind Rider bug fix, he won’t be able to cleave very tanky compositions well anymore.
Sez does decent in most PvE content, but most don’t use him as much there aside from farming.
0.2% increased damage per 1% target missing Health
If the enemy's Health is less than 50% after attacking with Dark Shadow, an extra attack is granted against all enemies with a 50% chance to make them unhealable for 1 turn. Can only activate once per turn.
This combo is not as good as it used to be due to the Wind Rider nerf, but he can still cleave most challenger teams with ease and clean up pretty well. You can substitute Wind Rider with Tonfa or Portrait and it will do just fine.
