|Fierce Guardian||Kisara sticks her giant shield into the earth to attack the enemies and protect allies. If it hits an enemy, it’ll down them and weaken any subsequent charge attacks.||This move also boosts all allies’ Defense and Elemental Defense.|
Kisara’s Boost Attack can be used against enemies that charge at you like Boars. If you time it right, it will down the charging enemy, making them vulnerable. What also makes this great is it’ll buff up your Defense as well as your Elemental Defense every time you use it.

Kisara’s Best Artes
Almost all of Rinwell’s artes are useful, they hit hard, and can exploit any weakness that the enemies may have.
Kisara is the party’s tank, especially when she is equipped with Aggro S/L skills from accessories. This makes her do a great job of holding the enemies’ attention, whilst having naturally high defense/elemental defense. When playing as her, try to time your blocks just as the enemy is about to hit her. This will increase the damage to her next attacks as well as make them unblockable.
Her boost attack will give the entire party Defense, and Elemental Defense up as well as stopping, and downing enemies that charge at you whilst also making their future charge attacks deal less damage.
Kisara doesn’t really have any best artes, mainly because her role depends on timing your guard, to increase the damage to your next attacks. What you want to do is, as the enemy attacks, block, and if timed correctly, she’ll glow. This means you successfully triggered her Guard Ignition perk, and your next attacks will become unblockable whilst also receiving a damage increase. You can use Lion’s Howl as a gap closer, and the Inferno Crossing > Lunar Arc > Sadistic Descent > Havoc Thrust > Lightning Streak is a pretty good combo. One great arte she has access to is Guardian Field, this will create a healing circle around Kisara, healing all party members within it, but it does cost CP so only use it in dire situations. Finally, build Kisara with Penetration, counter damage, and Aggro L, with some Resistance thrown in for good measure.
