~HOW TO PLAY LISBETH~

This section is written as an more in-depth extension to the AW & SAO Character Overview post and is meant to be used hand in hand with the General Leveling Guide. The purpose of this How-To-Play is to offer players of all levels a skeleton plan which enables them to build their characters up to their full potential. With that being said, it is indeed recommended that you do follow the steps described here.

-Important Skills-
  • Sharpness
  • Protection
  • First Aid
  • Enhance Fire
  • Enhance Ice
  • Enhance Wind
  • Enhance Earth
  • Enhance Dark
  • Enhance Holy
  • Resist Fire
  • Resist Ice
  • Resist Wind
  • Resist Earth
  • Resist Dark
  • Resist Holy
  • Searcher
-Weapon Selection-

Axe Liz is law and it allows her to become an extremely good character since she has control over all of the buffs in the game. Alternatively, Mace Liz has it’s own level of appeal but Axe Liz is law.

Liz has no major element. But still, if you are able to give her a Max Attack; Half Element Weapon with ~10% Anything or a Half Attack; Max Element Weapon with ~20% Anything, she will become incredibly strong. In most cases, higher base attack is better than elemental attack unless you are willing to switch weapons for each boss weakness.

**For more information on the overall Weapon Building process, consult the Weapon Building Guide.

**For some tips on how to select the appropriate Accessories for your character, consult the Selecting Equipment guide.

-Element Etiquette-

Liz has all of the Elemental buffs which make her difficult to play effectively. It is the Buffer’s job to make sure that the Elemental Weakness of the boss is buffed at all times.

Elemental Buffs are important because they increase damage by +30%. If a monster is weak to the element, this damage gets multiplied by 2 making you do +60% damage if you use the correct Element.

On the other hand, if a monster resists an element, the bonus damage can drop to +3%. This is indeed better than nothing but this fact means that buffing the Elemental Weakness of the boss is the most important – even more important than buffing the elemental strengths of the party members.

Using Elemental Buffs:

  1. Always Buff the Weakness of the Boss.
    • If party members present are able to cast the Elemental Buff that the boss is weak to, leave it to them so that you have less stuff to cast.
    • If a boss has two or more Elemental Weaknesses, use the Element the correlates to the general strength of the party. Example: Satet is weak to Wind & Ice. If a Sumeragi is in your party, use Ice. If an Leafa is in your party, use Wind.
  2. Buffing the Elemental Resist is optional but desired. Typically, Dark, Holy, Fire & Earth are the most useful Resists in that order.

Do not become a One-Trick Pony and just pick an element and stick to it. Not everything in the damn game is weak to Holy, okay LS Rain players? But in the event that you are presented with a Boss and have absolutely no idea what its Elemental Weakness is, use Ice or Dark. Those are the two Elements with the most Weaknesses and Least Resistances.

Since you are a buffer, you have full authority to cast over other peoples Elemental Buffs if they are using them wrong. But be careful because AW characters have stronger buffs and overwriting them will actually be bad for them. But these buffs only affect themselves so you don’t have to pay them any mind.

If you do not know which bosses are weak to what elements, you should definitely keep the Elemental Weakness Spreadsheets on hand while you play. These can be found on the Boss Guides page.

-Using Liz

Liz is a buffer who has access to all the Elemental Enhances & Resists. This make a good Liz a well sought after existence in this game. That’s statement is not enough enough to describe how good this character is. She’s downright amazing.

When a quest or boss fight starts:

  1. Cast Sharpness & Protection.
  2. Cast the Elemental Weakness of the Boss (refer to Elemental Etiquette section above)
  3. Cast the Elemental Resist that the Boss majors in (refer to Elemental Etiquette section above)
  4. Move in for combat.

On the SAO Sword Skills & Weapon Breakdowns page I have written some basic combat guidelines for all the respective weapons in the game. If you feel like you are using a weapon incorrectly or just want some pointers, I would advise you to have a look at that page.

Liz has the heavy burden on her shoulders of making sure that the correct element is currently in use. As Elemental Buffs are so important, it would be really beneficial to the team to have a quick look at everyone’s status to see if your buffs reached them.

Liz has a stressful job but never let it get to you. If you ever don’t know what a Boss’ Elemental Weakness is, just ask someone. Or consult the Boss Guides page.

Remember that when players die in battle, they are revived without any buffs. Recasting buffs when teammates die is a good idea and makes you a wonderful teammate. In Liz’ case, it is actually her responsibility to rebuff dead teammates. Of course, in some cases when a player dies non-stop its a waste of time to recast buffs (>.<)

-Healing-

If you take damage with Liz, use First Aid. If you have taken a considerable amount of damage, First Aid might not be good enough. In this case consider using a Healing Item or wait for a competent Healer to heal you. Do not keep fighting if you are low on health because that will definitely result in you dying.

 -BK’s Opinion on Liz-

I think this is the best SAO character in the game. The fact that she has access to all the Elemental buffs is just too good to place any other character above her. Also the fact that she can use Axe also makes her strong on top of everything. This character is just simply wonderful and definitely worth leveling. Even if her Personality or Pink hair doesn’t appeal to you.

She can also be equipped with an Axe that has debuffs to turn her into a one character army. Seriously man. the only thing this character can’t do is Song Buffs. And that’s saying a lot. (She even has Searcher)

Also, when you realize that she has Pink Eyes she becomes unbelievably adorable.
