    Default On the Art of Gunslashery: Gunslash Guide/Discussion

    I figured that with all the class discussions, the classy classless weapon could use its own thread.

    One of the strengths of Gunslash is that since it has no class requirements, it can fit well into several different builds. Currently, it seems, the best builds to insert Gunslash usage into, along with appropriate Gunslashes to use in them, are:
    ---
    FI/HU(Limit Breaker/Tank):
    •Crafted Sonic Laser, Last Stand potential grants +14% to all damage at <25% HP, which Limit Breaker automatically fulfills. Crafted because its stats are low otherwise.
    Celesta Laser, its unique potential Breath of Life automatically restores 10% HP every five seconds, making it one of the best tanking weapons in the game.
    Ares Buster. As a 13* it's automatically more powerful than any other Gunslash.
    ---
    RA/HU:
    Celesta Laser, its unique potential Breath of Life automatically restores 10% HP every five seconds, making it one of the best tanking weapons in the game.
    Ares Buster. As a 13* it's automatically more powerful than any other Gunslash.
    ---
    FI/GU(Limit Breaker/Critical/Chain Trigger):
    •Crafted Sonic Laser, Last Stand potential grants +14% to all damage at <25% HP, which Limit Breaker automatically fulfills. Crafted because its stats are low otherwise.
    •Crafted Roelia Bellow, its potential Chain Finale grants a large +20% to Chain Finishes. Crafted since its stats are low otherwise.
    Rebel Cypher, since its potential gives +13% damage to critical hits. Combined with Fighter's Critical Strike skill, critical hits do 28% more damage.
    Ares Buster. As a 13* it's automatically more powerful than any other Gunslash.
    ---
    FI/BO(Limit Breaker/Critical):
    •Crafted Sonic Laser, Last Stand potential grants +14% to all damage at <25% HP, which Limit Breaker automatically fulfills. Crafted because its stats are low otherwise.
    Queen Vera, super high T-Atk makes it an adequate weapon to make use of BO's ability to cast techs.
    Rebel Cypher, since its potential gives +13% damage to critical hits. Combined with Fighter's Critical Strike skill, critical hits do 28% more damage.
    Ares Buster. As a 13* it's automatically more powerful than any other Gunslash.

    Tri-Impact:
    PP Cost: 20
    ★★☆☆☆ Striking Damage
    ☆☆☆☆☆ Ranged Damage
    ★★★☆☆ Single-Target Damage
    ★★☆☆☆ Multi-Target Damage
    ★★☆☆☆ Reach
    ★★★☆☆ Speed

    Makes three slashes in front of you. A pretty much all-around terrible PA. I can't recommend this PA, ever. Avoid like the plague.

    Rage Dance:
    PP Cost: 20
    ★★★★☆ Striking Damage
    ★★★☆☆ Ranged Damage
    ★★★★☆ Single-Target Damage
    ★☆☆☆☆ Multi-Target Damage
    ★★☆☆☆ Reach
    ★★★★★ Speed
    Power increased by Bangasa Jikomi.

    Rapidly stab forward, hitting three times, then finish off with a single shot. Compensates for a very short range by being very fast and quite strong. The bullet has a larger range than the stabs, but does less total damage than the striking portions.

    Ein Raketen:
    PP Cost: 20
    ★★★☆☆ Striking Damage
    ★★★★☆ Ranged Damage
    ★★★★☆ Single-Target Damage
    ★★★☆☆ Multi-Target Damage
    ★★★☆☆ Reach
    ★★★★☆ Speed

    Make an upwards slash that launches enemies into the air, then shoot a strong, exploding bullet at the current target. The slash portion has a small area of effect, but not so small that it's completely unusable in mobbing situations. It's especially effective when combined with Gravity Bomb or Zondeel. Although the slash launches upwards, and the animation of the PA shows your character shooting upwards, the bullet will travel in whichever direction your current target is. The bullet itself is very powerful, and in addition, when it hits its target, it explodes and spreads its damage around wherever it hit in a respectable area of effect.

    Addbullet GS? I was avoiding mentioning PA-specific Gunslashes for the time being, since this guide/discussion is more about focusing on GS as a whole. I was planning on including a Photon Art section which would include the PA-specific Gunslashes, however. It's actually next on my list.

    Great! Hope the guide is up by the time I decide to level my Gunslash only character.

    Added a WIP Photon Art section. Current PA strength ratings are estimates done outside of the game without super-testing done yet, feel free to correct me if they seem wrong.

    Add シャットラウンダー to Ra/Hu too, for its standing snipe latent

    Why wouldn't you add the Rebel Cipher to FiHu as well? Crit builds aren't uncommon as a FiHu, especially when it comes to species weapons that need crafting.

    I have enormous doubts you use gunblades at all.
