Ray is an Earth element Soul Weaver who can support his allies through debuff cleanses, providing Immunity, and AoE healing. And he’s one of the best healers in the game.
Surrounded by the right teammates and equipped with the proper gear, he can excel in almost every aspect of the game.
But to see whether he’s worth building for you, let’s check out some more details and some build ideas for Ray.
Here are all of Ray’s skills and a brief description of what they do:
- Extreme Remedies – Attacks a single enemy and dispels one debuff from an ally.
- Light of Rebirth – Heals all allies and grants them a Barrier for 2 turns.
- Invigorate – Dispels all debuffs from the entire team, heals them, and grants them Immunity for 2 turns. Soul Burn is available for this skill. If used, it will increase the amount recovered by this skill.
As we can see here, Ray’s kit is well-suited for AoE heals and debuff cleanses. Not only that, but he can grant all of his allies Immunity as well!
As far as his effectiveness as a pure healer/support unit goes, Ray is by far among the very best — overshadowed only by a select few Soul Weavers in the game.
Ray in PVE
Due to his fantastic healing and cleansing capabilities, Ray can fit in almost every PVE team comp out there.
Equipped with his cleansing and Immunity-granting skills, he shines in stages with lots of mobs or bosses that can cripple your team with debuffs.
While he isn’t necessarily an essential support unit for easier PVE stages that you speed farm (he can’t CR Push or boost damage), Ray is still viable if you require a heavy-duty healer for harder PVE runs.
Ray in PVP
When it comes to supporting his allies in the Arena and the World Arena, Ray is a pretty solid unit if you don’t have better options to pick from.
While he may be overshadowed by Soul Weavers like Destina, Angelic Montmorancy, or Roana, Ray can still hold his team together just fine compared to those top-tier supporters.
All in all, Ray is a pretty good unit who fits well in attrition-based/tanky PVP teams. Although you do have to keep in mind that there are better units who can perform the same role as him.
Recommended Builds for Ray (Artifact, Skill Upgrades & Equipment)
Recommended Artifacts: Wondrous Potion Vial, Doctor’s Bag, Shimadra Staff, Magaraha’s Tome
Any of these Artifacts can make Ray shine, but if you want to run a high-Resistance team, then Shimadra Staff will be the best in the slot.
Recommended Skill Upgrades: 0/0/3
For Ray’s skill splits, all you really need to upgrade is his Skill 3 because of the 1-turn cooldown reduction. The rest are highly optional.
Recommended Equipment Sets: Speed Set & Resistance Set Build / Speed Set & Immunity Set Build
Like most Support units, Ray’s priority stat/substat will be Speed — followed by either Effect Resistance or Health depending on which you prefer.
Is Ray Worth Building?
Ray is not a bad unit to roll for — let alone invest in. He has a great kit that can carry your team through pretty tough situations in the game.
Despite this, he’s not exactly a “must-have” unit, simply because there are already other units who can perform his job just as well or even better than he does.
All in all, we recommend that you pull for Ray only if you don’t have any top-tier healers or cleansers in your lineup.
