Role Summary

PVE PVP Offense Defense Prelim Boss
Ardha.jpg Ardha
Teal Purple Teal 4 4 4 1 5
  • Sahasrara is an incredibly stacked passive that provides additional MP regen, damage, hit rate and healing effectiveness. Additionally, when any member of the party uses a skill that recovers HP, Ardha chains a 60 BP Phys skill with 50% crit rate that scales on Mag ATK and ignores counters.
    • This has powerful synergy with Vivian, who will chain a heal letting you start to chain effects. Other options to add to this combo include Kangiten, along with the Lakshmi A and Mithras combo. This leads to a strong T0 comp that can wipe a team before a single turn even happens.
  • Ruin and Grace is a very hard-hitting ST skill that has a high critical rate and heals your whole party if it hits, and ignores counters and endures. Combined with high natural MAG and innate Epitome of Carnage, Ardha can deal massive damage while keeping your party healthy.
  • Naturally drains Fire and Elec while gaining Drain Phys in Teal. This makes Ardha an incredible partner for Demiurge.
  • Can be used in Phys Democalypse as a powerful boss unit, especially in Purple for Merciless Blow.
  • P3 adds additional MP regen, making Ardha regen 5 MP per turn, baseline.
  • The extra Phys hit granted by Sahasrara does not bypass Endures.
  • Does not hit hard enough to be worth running against Demeter in pvp.
  • Drain Elec doesn't matter against Zeus.
  • Run Ardha with Lakshmi A to give your whole team near unlimited MP.

PvE Builds


  • Purple: Merciless Blow to take advantage of weakness
  • Teal: Drain Phys to be paired with Rama or Demiurge to cheese certain boss fights since he also innately drains Fire and Elec.

ArchTeal.png Transferred Skills Notes:

Ardha is a perfect combination of everything a good pve team/demon needs: damage, heals, MP, etc. Ruin and Grace hits hard + heals a ton. His passive already gives Ardha a built in Divine brand alongside accuracy and healing modifiers. Perfect for boss fights or slow farming.

Official Profile

Ardhanarishvara is a god of dual gender whose appearance is half that of the destroyer, Shiva, and half his wife, Parvati. Ardha is the ideal figure of Shaktism, the perfect god. Ardha is often depicted with the iconography of both Shiva (trident, tiger skin and bull mount Nandi) and Parvati (lotus, ornaments and lion) combined.
