Increased HP Max HP +X%

Nimble Fingers Skill Cooldown -X%

This Gley build is designed to increase her maximum HP to enhance her survivability and deal more damage with Massacre and Life Siphon. Additionally, you will also be stacking Skill Cooldown and Skill Duration to utilize the effects of Increased Sensory.

With Gley, you can pick up the double-edge modules that drastically increase your HP but negatively impact your Shield or MP. Since Gley's passive ability, Thirst, prevents her from having those stats, you will be able to completely avoid the downside of these modules.

Rifling Reinforcement Firearm ATK +X%

This weapon's unique ability, Python Instinct, lowers the non-attribute resistance of the target enemy if you shoot at their weak point. This means that the longer you shoot an enemy, the stronger your shots will get. Since Gley can have infinite ammo, you will be able to utilize this effect easily.

Your modules will mainly stack Critical Hit Rate and Firearm ATK to maximize the effects of your Frenzied Skill and infinite ammo when activating Increased Sensory. Since you will be focusing on shooting the enemy's weak point to activate Python Instinct, you will also invest some modules in Weak Point Damage.

Best Gley Reactor

Reactor Stat Priority

・Skill Duration Up

It is better to get the Phase Reactor to obtain bonuses for your Dimensional Skills since Massacre and Life Siphon are the only two skills that can scale from Skill Power. Getting a Singularity Reactor will still provide the base Skill Power, but the effects of Frenzied and Increased Sensory will remain the same.

Since you will be targeting the enemy's weak point due to the effects of Python, the Veteran Marksman Set is perfect for any situation. Using these External Components provides a set bonus effect that gives you increased weak point damage as well as firearm damage.

Gley Exclusive Equipment

Variable Arche Firearm 'Massacre'

Creating a weapon that suits Gley, the only being who can use Arche, as well as switch between the genetic structures of humans and Magisters, was a serious challenge. The main issue was deciding the basis for the output point, and while both Anais and Deslin suggested creating the weapon based on when she's in human form, Gley was adamantly against it. She wanted a weapon that would allow her to slaughterher enemies, even if it meant it ate away at her own life. After much wrangling, the output point was set based on when Gley was in a frenzy. When she finally received the weapon, Gley wordlessly stared at it for a long time before slipping it into her holster and leaving.
