General Thoughts

Aranea is a 6-star unit that plays the Physical Attacker role. Her HP and attack stat is very good and lines up with her abilities quite nicely.

Aranea has 6 active abilities that are all physical based attacks. 3 of her abilities are jump based abilities that deal damage while having extra effects on them as well.

To some having only 6 active abilities can be seen as a negative but Aranea makes up for it with her Traits. She has quite a few of them that give her boosts in all the right places and really make her attacks more devastating.

Soulless Hammer giving her a massive 75% increase of damage on machines, demons, and undead monsters. Wind Reader increasing jumping attack damage by 100%.

And with Polearm arts, she gains 25% accuracy and 100% damage bonus when using a single wield weapon. And those are just the 3 that really spike her damage. She has other things like Spear Mastery, a counter, and so on.

So really, Aranea has 6 great attacks with a nice pool of Traits that really push her attacks over the limit. Her Trust Master is great too, giving her quite a few helpful abilities that affect her damage and jump based abilities.

Overall, Aranea is a great physical unit. Even her limit burst, which is just a heavy hitting physical attack, is a great move for its damage.

Verdict: A great physical unit. High attack and damage output from her Trust Master and Traits.

Lore

A captain of the Niflheim military forces spoken of in stories from the faraway land of Eos. Aranea is a dragoon that specializes in aerial assaults with her magitek lance. A former mercenary who was eventually promoted for her talents, she has gained the loyalty of her troop’s thanks to her caring attitude towards others, unbreakable spirit, and expertise in the art of battle. She despises Niflheim’s magitek infantry, an army of robotic soldiers that serves the empire, showing a deep appreciation for her human subordinates instead.
