    Hey,

    I've started investing quite heavily into Kara (More than I probably should have I have UW and UT3) and am wondering if it were possible to run her as a main line DPS, I've seen before that she can at T5 but I'm a bit of a noob and am not sure what Transcendence would bee needed to push her into the main line role. Currently my team is Annette Jane (to be replaced by Viska after amnity games are done) and either Frey or Arch depending on whether I need more heals or shields.

    Additionally, is she even worth pushing up to T5 to use as a main DPS? Or would I be better off investing in Arch or another DPS and relegating her to sub DPS for WB.

    Thanks in Advance

    Leth

    Kara-user here.

    And yes, she is main m.dps. And yes, she wants T5 to get some juicy stats from T5 light.
    T5 dark is meeeeh XD

    As for her capability she's great shredder in WB1 with her UT.
    With 0* UW mine shows respectable numbers alongside Theo (4* UW) and Lewisia (2* UW).
    Note my Kara does not wear optimal for her gear (leftover BD T6 gear lol).

    She is a bit squishy in 2nd mode, so tanky Annette will be in front of Kara and Kara would be positioned at the back where she is safe.

    Actually Viska is better then Jane if you have her UW starred and now her UT2. Jane with UT shreds like Phillop.

    As for T-perks it's up to your goal - pve or pvp. On you tube : D Router had posted nice review of Kara and good T-perk recommendations.

    I've been wondering this myself actually. If BD isn't the recommended gear on Kara.
    So does this mean, Lava, RD and Manticore would be better?
    What is the better set overall for her?

    Cheers, mine's only T2 and she doesn't even come close to the DPS of my T2 Arch in PvE, and yeah I'm clueless on the gearing, I used the guide on here for Annette so I know she's pretty optimal but Kara just baffles me

    Ultimately Manticore. But personally mix of RD and Lava is better as those are easier to grind.
    With mana regen per sec as option.
    And run Kara with Laias, Shea or Rephy if you have mana issues.

    Arch is more of a pvp unit. I used to run him as sub.dps until his final nerf:<

    Kara would love atk, atk spd, crt, crt dmg, some cc resist, leech and mana regen per sec.
    Optimal crit is 85% if you run her with T2 crt perk priest.
    Crt dmg can be easily ignored as she gets bonus crt dmg from her T-perks.

    What do you run on her Artifact wise? Currently I'm using Burning Brazier of the Elf to aid with her mana issues.

    Don't have trouble with any of her mana so far.
    Guess I'll stick by it until I get better manticore gear.

    When she is in her 2nd mode (Siege Mode) the brazier does not work as she is not auto attacking. Cow Horn is better for her or other generic dps artifacts.

    Yeah I had a sudden moment of clarity that it wasn't working, I swapped her gear to full t5 Stat aligned RD (From one of the starter tickets I think) and swapped the cow horn off of my Annette and gave her my golden cat and my Dps quadrupled from 400kish to 2m+ on WB.

    Thanks for the help!

    You're welcome!

    Golden Cat is more of a pvp artifact.

    And the best artifact for Annette is pocket watch. Look out for it! She is okay on brazier as well.

    Just grind some Tower of Ordeal floors for artifact pieces.

    Do it 2 times a day and you'll get to 1000 pcs. to summon new artifact.

    Wut?XD You said you don't have it. Annette loves this artifact!

    Golden Cat and Spring water are pvp oriented.

    Mirror is generally used for tanks when you need m.def in a form of m.block

    Cow Horn general artifact for dps.

    Sarcasm doesn't seem to work out well over text q.q, rest assured it's now well equipped on my Annette, Jane is rocking a mirror and Kara is going mental with the cow horn!

    Yep, just need Viska and debating whether to run Viska/Arch/Kara/Annette or whether I need a Priest like Laias to support her or can run it alone

    You might lack in healing a little unless your Annette is transcended for healing but besides that it works fine
