Fafnir Guide & Squad Formations

Fafnir (Ritual Miracle) is the best place in Dislyte for farming relics: Tyranny of Zeus, Astral Witchcraft, Hammer of Thor, The Enchanter, Immensus Peak, and The Light Above. At the moment, there are 10 difficulty levels in total.

This guide explains what Fafnir is, what you will need to defeat Fafnir, the strategy surrounding Fafnir and how to fight her, and any recommendations that we would suggest if you’re struggling.

Fafnir Basic Information

Fafnir has five levels of HP and the passive skill Unbound Deluge, which disables all AP-related abilities.

For every level of HP lost, Fafnir gains Andvari’s Treasure, which grants Immunity to a certain number of attacks and freezes the last attacker. This effect is only cleared after a certain number of attacks.

When it’s Fafnir’s turn, if Treasure of Andvari is still active Fafnir will cast Dragon’s Curse, dealing massive damage to the frozen target. The key to defeating Fafnir is to use an Esper with a high number of single attacks to ensure that Treasure of Andvari is cleared early in the battle.

Fafnir is a Ritual Miracle Boss focused on dealing consistent ‘AoE’ (Area of Effect) damage to your team whilst applying disable & debuffs frequently. Then, she bursts of strong damage towards targets that are affected by her debuff Icefield Abyss if her defensive shield is not broken.

She also deals more damage when fewer Espers remain on the field, so it’s important to keep all Espers alive.

The most common strategy used against Fafnir is to deal damage in multiple hits, sustain the incoming damage with frequent healing, and regularly cleanse debuffs.

We recommend to tackle Fafnir only once you can comfortably auto Floor 10 of both Kronos and Apep.

Tip: For farming relics from Fafnir easier, it is recommended to use auto farming with Dislyte PC version.

Notes:

You cannot manipulate AP during the battle against Fafnir, this includes; ‘AP Up’, ‘AP Down’, ‘AP Absorb’, or ‘AP Redistribution’. To learn more about AP, please check out the article How AP (Action Point) Works

Fafnir bypasses Invincibility or Standoff buffs when dealing damage against an Esper affected by her debuff: Icefield Abyss.

Passives that make an Esper immune to disable debuffs do not stop Icefield Abyss from applying. For example; Hyde Hades Hyde (Hades)’s Reaper (Passive), or Jin Yuyao Queen Mother Jin Yuyao (Queen Mother)’s Abode of Immortals (Passive).

Strategy to Defeating Fafnir

The fight against Fafnir is all about sustain and multi-hits.

Requirements:

You will need:

  • An Esper or two that can heal/shield your team frequently;
  • An Esper or two that can apply the Immunity buff;
  • An Esper or two that has the ability to cleanse debuffs;
  • Multiple Espers that deal damage in multiple hits. Using the Relic set ‘Sword Avatara’ is highly recommended;
  • An Esper with the ability to apply the ATK Down debuff frequently (optional – requires a dispel Esper);
  • An Esper with the ability to apply the DEF Down debuff frequently (optional – requires a dispel Esper);
  • An Esper with the ability to dispel buffs frequently (optional);
  • An Esper with the ability to revive (optional).

HP Bars

Firstly, Fafnir has 5 HP bars, all of which need to be depleted to defeat her. When one HP bar is depleted, she will retaliate at the end of the Esper’s turn that depleted her HP Bar and do the following;

  • Apply the Icefield Abyss debuff on that Esper which freezes them and stops them from gaining AP between other turns, or taking a turn for its duration;
  • Reduce the Icefield Abyss target’s max HP by 25% if buffed when applying the debuff;
  • Attack all enemies;
  • Apply a SPD Down debuff for 2 turns to all enemies;
  • Have a 25% chance to Stun allies if they’re buffed.

This is arguably the toughest part of the battle to deal with, as she can lock down your Espers with Stuns, reduce their SPD, and stop them from saving the affected Esper.

To tackle this, the Immunity buff is required to stop the Stun or SPD Down aspect of her attack, and use cleanses to make sure any allies who didn’t have an Immunity buff still get to take their turns in time.

Shield

Once she does this, Fafnir then gains a shield that has 12 stacks that have to be reduced by attacking Fafnir.

The best way to break the shield is to utilise the Sword Avatara Relic set on Espers, along with multi-hit A1 abilities such as; Berenice Bastet Berenice (Bastet)‘s A1 that attacks 3 times. It is also incredibly useful to have Espers that have other multi-hit abilities, with one of the best being Lu Yi Dayi Lu Yi (Dayi)‘s A3 which has the potential to hit 9 times.

Once the shield is broken, Fafnir will not deal high damage to the Esper affected by Icefield Abyss and instead use her A1; though if you fail to break the shield before Fafnir takes a turn, she will deal devastating single target damage to that Esper, most likely defeating them.

Struggling with Fafnir?

If you’re having trouble with Fafnir, here are a couple of things that you can do or check:

  • Upgrade your Relics or farm stronger Relics from Kronos or Apep.
  • Make sure you have enough Espers that can deal damage in multiple hits.
  • Make sure your Espers have good SPD, as they cannot gain AP via any other method.
  • Switch out your Captain Ability to an Esper that can provide increased HP%, for example, Gabrielle Njord Gabrielle (Njord)‘s Captain Ability that increases ally HP by 30%.
  • Make sure your Espers have Ascension Phase 6 unlocked.
  • Make sure your Espers are Level 60 for the increase of stats they gain.

Gabrielle NjordUnas ShuLu Yi DayiHeng Yue ChangeTang Yun Six Eared MacaqueAnother type of multi-hit comp that uses Unas for constant AP Up and high multi-hit Espers. All Espers need decent SPD, while DPS units can opt to use SPD mainstat MUI 2 relics. Espers should have at least 180+ SPD.All Espers fully built
Gabrielle NjordSally SifHyde HadesLucas ApolloBerenice BastetBerenice and Gabrielle need to be moving twice before Fafnir at the minimum. Lucas will sometimes be able to tank Fafnir but don’t count on it. All Units are beefy with HP% of 23K Bonus HP, minimum of 19K bonus HP on LucasOnly Berenice at level 50, there are some better healers than Sally for Fafnir
Gabrielle NjordBerenice BastetLu Yi DayiTang Yun Six Eared MacaqueSally SifMulti-hit comp that uses Berenice shield, and Gabrielle as HP captainAll Espers maxed except for Berenice who is at level 50
Lu Yi DayiBerenice BastetCatherine HelaHyde HadesUnas ShuAnother example for a multi-hit comp that uses Catherine and Berenice instead for safety. Can swap Lu Yi for Tang Yun. All must have high SPD (180+), and should have Avatara set on DPS only. If using Tang Yun in replacement of Lu Yi, he doesn't need speed.All level 60, Hyde and Unas don't need max skill
Hyde HadesTang Yun Six Eared MacaqueBerenice BastetCatherine HelaGabrielle NjordAnother way to setup a multi hit comp where Hyde can be interchanged with Lu Yi. High SPD (180+) again except Tang Yun and Lu Yi (assuming the use of Lu Yi) However, Lu Yi may be better with high speed. All should have avatara. IMPORTANT NOTE: This comp and the comp listed above can replace Tang Yun with Donar, as Donar is too tanky to die easily if teammate cant strip all the shield stacks from Fafnir. Sally is not needed here because she doesnt tribute to the damage and Berenice alone can heal enough. Hyde must have Hades set because Berenice cant heal HydeAll level 60 and fully invested
Lu Yi DayiGabrielle NjordBerenice BastetDeath Guard Hei Xie ChuyiDeath Guard Bai Xie Yuzhi

The Twins are built specifically for Fafnir here, which means they diverge slightly from their usual builds. Xie Chuyi is built for SPD as much as ATK. Xie Yuzhi's AP Down and Stun won't work in Fafnir but he is the correct element, so we can build him for some damage too. Lu Yi and The Twins are both on Avatara with SPD main stat on MUI 2. The Twins are on Wind Walker. Gabrielle and Berenice are on their normal recommended builds. The win rate on Fafnir 10 is 50%, but this will almost definitely improve after update when Fafnir's HP bars are reduced by 1 on F8-10.

Lu Yi can be on Hades if short on Wind Walker.

All Espers fully built
Li Ling NezhaGabrielle NjordClara HeraChloe MedeaLaura avatarThis is a FULL AUTO Fafnir composition making use of the new esper Laura, set on auto priority on Fafnir, ignoring minions. Since this comp has 3 supports and only 2 DPS, everything needs to be done to maximize their output. While you can survive for a long time with this comp, you can't survive indefinitely especially if Fafnir crits or freezes a DPS Gabrielle should be an easy addition to the team for her ATK Down, DEF Down, and DEF Up buffsEveryone on team is level 60. Chloe, Gabrielle and Laura have maxed skills (important for Laura to have maxed skills as her tankiness is a major contributor to success). Everyone is maxed ascension. 6* runes, mostly maxed on damage dealers and Laura. 5* maxed on Gabrielle, random smattering of rarity runes for Clara (at most +9 with 3-4 runes unleveled). TLDR: EVERYONE IS FULLY BUILT
Death Guard Hei Xie ChuyiDeath Guard Bai Xie YuzhiCatherine HelaTang Yun Six Eared MacaqueBerenice BastetA Twins comp for Fafnir that is relatively consistent. SPD is a much more important stat than DPS on The Twins. Xie Chyui needs a little tank investment to be able to survive. Tang Yun can go for a DPS build but needs atleast 60+ bonus SPD. Catherine and Berenice will be the the sustain for the comp. Berenice needs to be as fast as possible with max skill ups and high HP. Xie Yuzhi needs his skills maxed as you want him to be casting his S1 the leastAll Espers fully built, with high SPD investment on The Twins and Berenice. Atleast have 60+ SPD on Tang Yun, and make Catherine as tanky as possible

Fafnir Skills

At first, let’s take a look at the Fafnir boss skills to see how basically it the fight works so that we can find the best options to deal with this Dislyte boss.

Before you can get to the boss, you need to take down 2 small enemy waves first. They are easy to defeat, however sometimes they can take down your weak units, making it harder for you to defeat the Fafnir. You want to take them down as soon as possible, and give your weak units enough HP/DEF to sustain through these waves.

Kael

Hi, I have a team consist of (Li Ling (60), Berenice (50), Hathor (50), Tang Xuan (50), Gab (60)) all have full ascension. But I have trouble breaking the fafnir shield. Is there any tip on this? I search around a few team, I see not most people have crazy amount of speed but able to clear.

cutemon

Which Difficulty level are you targeting?

Kael

Difficulty 10

Adri

i think you can replace Tang Xuan to Tang Yun or Lu Yi.

EggyExe

Is Unas still recommended for this even though you cant boost AP?

cutemon

Yes, he is still superb for Fafnir!

mindoot

Why is this the case? What does he do?

Ice Queen
