Piper Strengths and Weaknesses

Strengths
• Can increase her own Anomaly Buildup with her EX Special Attack and Ultimate • Can increase the party's DMG when she has accumulated enough Power stacks • Can reduce the damage she takes which is great for her playstyle
Weaknesses
• Takes time and combos to build Power stacks, so needs more on-field time than most characters

Piper is an Anomaly, Physical damage dealer that can function as the team's Sub-DPS or its Main DPS. Her kit allows her to increase her Physical Anomaly Buildup and the party's DMG through Power stacks.

To build Power stacks efficiently, she must hit many enemies with her EX Special Attack or Ultimate.

This build maximizes the damage Piper deals through her Physical Anomaly by increasing her Anomaly Proficiency and giving her access to Anomaly Buildup RES reduction.

Prioritize Anomaly Proficiency sub-stats on her Disks since they increase the damage of the Physical Anomalies she can inflict.

Piper Best W-Engines

Recommended W-Engines

W-Engine Effect
1 Roaring Ride Collision Potential When EX Special Attack hits an enemy, one of three possible effects is randomly triggered for 5 seconds. This effect can trigger once every 0.3s. The same types of effects cannot stack. Repeated triggers reset the duration, allowing several effects to be active at once: increases the equipper's ATK by 8%, increases the equipper's Anomaly Proficiency by 40, or increases the equipper's Anomaly Buildup Rate by 25%.
2 Fusion Compiler Data Flood Increases ATK by 12%. When using a Special Attack or an EX Special Attack, the equipper's Anomaly Proficiency is increased by 25 for 8s, stacking up to 3 times. The duration of each stack is calculated separately.
3 Electro-Lip Gloss Kiss of Death When there are enemies inflicted with Attribute Anomaly on the field, the equipper's ATK increases by 10% and they deal an additional 15% more DMG to the target.
4 Rainforest Gourmet Dinner's Ready! For every 10 energy consumed, the equipper gains a buff that increases ATK by 2.5% for 10s, stacking up to 10 times. The duration of each stack is calculated separately.

All W-Engine (Weapon) Guides

Roaring Ride is the Best for Piper

Roaring Ride is an A Rank W-Engine and is the best for Piper since it allows her EX Special Attack to have an additional effect, which all lead to an overall damage increase for her.

Piper Best Drive Discs

Best Drive Discs and Set Bonuses

Drive Disc Rating and Merits
Freedom Blues
(4-pc) Swing Jazz
(2-pc)
★★★ - Best Set! Freedom Blues increases Piper's Anomaly Proficiency and allows her Special Attack to decrease the enemy's Anomaly Buildup Resistance, which goes really well with her kit. 2-piece Swing Jazz gives Piper additional Energy Regen which allows her to do more EX Special Attacks.
Fanged Metal
(4-pc) Freedom Blues
(2-pc)
★★☆ - 2nd Best Fanged Metal also works for Piper since it increases her Physical DMG and increases her DMG when a party member inflicts Assault to a target enemy. 2-piece Freedom Blues is a great combo for this since it will improve Piper's Anomaly Proficiency.

How to Play Piper

  • Get Energy With Basic Attacks
  • Hold Special Attack to Charge
  • Hold EX Special Attack and Release
  • Deal Massive Physical DMG with Ultimate

Get Energy With Basic Attacks

Piper Basic Attack Combo
Basic Attack 1 → Tap Special Attack

Piper needs Energy for her to use her EX Special Attack, which is where most of her damage comes from. Get Energy by using her Basic Attacks while also building up Physical Anomaly.

Another combo you can do with her Basic Attacks is to just tap her Special Attack after using a Basic Attack to do a quick combo for more damage, but this does not restore Energy.

Hold Special Attack to Charge

Piper can hold her Special Attack to spin and deal damage, but this changes when she has enough Energy. Hold it down long enough to charge her EX Special Attack, which deals more damage and grants her Power stacks.

Each stack of Power increases Piper's Physical Anomaly Buildup Rate and increases the team's DMG at max stacks, so obtaining it is a necessity to increase Piper's overall damage.

Hold EX Special Attack and Release

Piper EX Special Attack
Hold Down EX Special Attack → Release or Wait for Energy to Deplete

Keep holding Piper's EX Special Attack to deal more damage, build up Physical Anomaly, and keep obtaining Power stacks. Afterward, release it to unleash a final attack that deals massive Physical DMG.

Also, the final attack automatically happens when Piper runs out of Energy or when the EX Special Attack reaches its duration limit.

Beware of Taking Damage When Using EX Special Attack

Piper gets damage reduction while doing her EX Special Attack, but that doesn't mean you won't take damage from enemies. Try to use her EX Special Attack when the enemy is Stunned or vulnerable to avoid taking damage.

Deal Massive Physical DMG with Ultimate

Piper's Ultimate deals a lot of Physical DMG and also grants her Power stacks. Use it after her EX Special Attack combo to deal even more damage and cap out her Power stacks if needed.
