Key Notes
  • Niche build

Details
  • Survival set
  • Used in high difficulty content where survival is more important than clearing speed
  • Can be used to enable more Signature Moves on stages with high survival pressure
  • Used in some select few Phantom Pain Cage strategies for faster Signature Move clears
  • Cottie offers higher ATK than Flamel but placing Cottie in Grid 1-3 allows for easy switching between Luna's main build and this set

How to play

Laurel - Fundamentals
  • Double 3-Pings:
    • After any 3-Ping the next orb pinged will be considered a 3-Ping
    • This bonus does not stack with Matrix Pings (entering Matrix will override the Core Passive)
  • All 3-Pings fill her Core Passive gauge:
    • Each 3-Ping fills 1/4 of the gauge (15 points, 60 max)
    • Matrix Pings and the free 3-Ping provided by Laurel's Core Passive also give 15 points
    • If the gauge is full no extra points will be obtained
  • Hold Basic Attack to enter Annihilation State:
    • You will get one Annihilation Orb for each 3-Ping (1 orb per 15 points)
    • Pinging Annihilation Orbs will generate a large amount of energy
    • Basic Attacks will deal Dark DMG but generate no energy
    • Each Basic Attack drains 5 points from the Core Passive gauge
    • Emptying the Core Passive gauge, swapping out or using Signature Move will exit Annihilation State
Laurel - Additional Information
  • Core Passive details:
    • Annihilation Orbs can be used while doing other actions or while on the ground
    • Ending Annihilation State early will remove all unused Annihilation Orbs
    • Activating Matrix in Annihilation State will generate one Annihilation Orb
    • Exiting Annihilation State also sorts all orbs in the order of Red-Blue-Yellow
  • Advanced techniques:
    • Dodging shortly after a Yellow Orb Ping skips the animation but still does full damage
    • Dodging shortly after a Red Orb Ping skips the animation but does less damage
    • Doing one basic attack before each 3-Ping allows Laurel to generate orbs while attacking
    • To maximize damage it's recommended to save Matrix until Annihilation State is activated with full gauge: four 3-Pings + 5 Annihilation Orbs with the Flamel set will fully charge Laurel's Signature Move
    • Basic attacks during Core Passive still generate orbs, the orbs however get deleted if they appear while in Annihilation State
      • Since an orb is generated every 1.5 seconds while attacking, activating Annihilation State with only 1/4 of the gauge and doing 3 basic attacks is a fast way to sort orbs while also generating them
