Dohalim’s Best Artes
Dohalim is in a weird place where he doesn’t excel at anything, but he can fill the role of either Shionne, Rinwell, and to a lesser extent, Alphen/Law.
For the most part, his staff skills aren’t particularly great, other than his DLC arte Raging Lunar Storm. His attacking spells leave a lot to be desired, as most of them are of the dark element, and most of the enemies near the end of the game are strong to it. One thing he is pretty good at is healing, especially his DLC arte Fairy Circle. He has access to all the healing you could want, and he has barrier, which will boost your Defense/Elemental Defense by 30%, and Lionheart which speeds up the recovery of the party’s AG.
Like most of the party, his boost attack is great, especially against high evasion type enemies like wolves. This will root some enemies in place, and at worst, remove their dodge ability.
For his best artes, Both of his DLC artes are great (Fairy Circle, and Raging Lunar Storm) and his healing/support skills rival even Shionne’s. If you want to play him with his staff skills, make sure to get the Rod Extension passives as soon as possible, as these will significantly increase the damage he does with those attacks. Playing as Dohamlim can feel frustrating due to his jack of all trades, master of none play style, and it’s best focusing on either a spell caster or Staff user as there isn’t much synergy between them.
