Like all characters in Granblue Fantasy: Relink emphasizing damage, the crucial Sigil to prioritize is Damage Cap.

In this build, we’ll prioritize Cagliostro’s two signature Sigils. Additionally, if feasible, aim to maximize the level of Damage Cap to unleash the highest potential damage output.

Other DPS Build


  • Transmigration Tome

For this build, we’ve opted for the straightforward Transmigration Tome. This weapon offers a flat Attack bonus, allowing for additional stat enhancements via Wrightstones. While we typically advocate for critical hit damage, feel free to prioritize the stat that best suits your needs. While some players also consider the Sacred Codex, we find that it trades significant damage potential for other stats, which may not be as effective in certain quests.

Skills and Sigils

Now, let’s delve into the core of this Cagliostro build in Granblue Fantasy: Relink. While her skill set isn’t the most extensive, she emphasizes quality over quantity. Before discussing rotation, here are the essential skills:

  1. Pain Train
  2. Alexandria
  3. Mimic Doll
  4. Phantasmagoria

Regardless of the fight or quest type, always initiate with Phantasmagoria. This skill provides attack and critical hit bonuses to you and your party. Following that, swiftly engage your enemy with Pain Train. Throughout, aim to incorporate as many combos as possible. Mastering the charge for your Collapse ability is crucial, as this charged attack deals substantial damage. When the enemy enters a Break state, utilize Alexandria and trigger Collapse for faster charging. Mimic Doll serves to evade lethal attacks or strike an enemy immediately after they enter Overdrive.

Regarding Sigils, several are recommended to enhance her DPS and amplify her charged attack. Here’s the list:

  1. Attack Power
  2. Critical Hit Rate
  3. Quick Charge
  4. Combo Booster
  5. Charged Attack
  6. Cascade
