Physical Teams

Main (Competitive)

This composition shows the recommended investment to compete at higher levels. Investment recommendations will not be available to the majority of players. Refer to Main (Budget) for a more accessible setup.
Blue

Luminance

Starter. Recommended investment: Leap, SSS-Rank, Signature Weapon
Luminance's optimal team slot is Blue for optimal synergy with her team, as Stigmata can rearrange and effectively manage her orbs with Matrix.
Luminance acts as the starter of this team to provide an immediate CRIT rate buff with her Signature Move. Luminance should swap to Stigmata after performing her Signature Move and building up her CRIT rate buff.
Additional Inver-Shards can be obtained through the Tactical Assessment Manual and Voucher Shop.
Luminance's Leap is required for her to be an effective Physical Support. SSS-Rank allows immediate usage of her Signature Move to set up a high CRIT rate buff as quickly as possible. If players plan on obtaining a Signature Weapon for Luminance, they should obtain Type Zero instead of Dragon Wind, as Dragon Wind is sub-optimal despite being her Signature Weapon. Luminance's Weapon's value lies in allowing use of Weapon Resonances to further buff the team.
Red
Leader

Stigmata

Leader. Recommended investment: SS3-Rank, Signature Weapon
As Stigmata's QTE brings nothing to the team beyond off-field damage and other slots are better used by other members, she takes the remaining position in the team.
Stigmata’s SS-Rank drastically increases her Signature Move's damage. SS3-Rank provides significant Energy gain, which can considerably increase DPS if utilized properly. Signature Weapon is very strongly recommended to quickly gain consistently high amounts of Stigmata Will stacks to maximize her Signature Move’s damage.
Yellow

Rigor

Recommended investment: Leap, SSS-Rank, Signature Weapon
Placement in Yellow allows for optimal synergy with Stigmata, while QTE triggers can be guaranteed through both Yellow 3-Pings and Luminance’s use of 4 set Da Vinci.
Additional Inver-Shards can be obtained through the Tactical Assessment Manual and Voucher Shop.
Rigor's Leap should be considered a minimum investment for this team as it increases her DPS by a significant amount, and at higher ranks, provides Physical Resistance reduction debuffs. Rigor should be at least SS-Rank in this composition, as the ability to reapply her Defense reduction debuff from off-field can greatly improve the team's potential output. SSS-Rank and Signature Weapon both provide increases to her Defense reduction debuff.

Main (Budget)

This composition serves as a more budget friendly version of the Main (Competitive) composition, offering guidelines on further investment. Unless explicitly stated as otherwise, players should invest based on what can be reasonably afforded before using investment recommendations as a guideline. (For example, obtaining SS-Rank despite Signature Weapon being recommended, as SS-Rank can be obtained through Phantom Pain Cage.)
Blue

Luminance

Starter. Recommended investment: Leap
Luminance's optimal team slot is Blue for optimal synergy with her team, as Stigmata can rearrange and effectively manage her orbs with Matrix.
Luminance acts as the starter of this team to set up for future rotations with the Level 18 effects of her Signature Move’s Leap. Luminance should swap to Stigmata as soon as possible.
Additional Inver-Shards can be obtained through the Tactical Assessment Manual and Voucher Shop.
Luminance's Leap is required for her to be an effective Physical Support. If players plan on obtaining a Signature Weapon for Luminance, they should obtain Type Zero instead of Dragon Wind, as Dragon Wind is sub-optimal despite being her Signature Weapon.
Red
Leader

Stigmata

Leader. Recommended investment: SS-Rank
As Stigmata's QTE brings nothing to the team beyond off-field damage and other slots are better used by other members, she takes the remaining position in the team.
Stigmata's SS-Rank drastically improves her Signature Move's potential damage.
Yellow

Rigor

Recommended investment: Leap, SS-Rank
Placement in Yellow allows for optimal synergy with Stigmata, while QTE triggers can be guaranteed through both Yellow 3-Pings and Luminance’s use of 4 set Da Vinci.
Additional Inver-Shards can be obtained through the Tactical Assessment Manual and Voucher Shop.
Rigor's Leap should be considered a minimum investment for this team as it increases her DPS by a significant amount, and at higher ranks, provides Physical Resistance reduction debuffs. SS-Rank is a drastic improvement to Rigor's supportive capabilities, allowing her to apply her Defense Reduction debuffs with her QTE.

1st Gen (Crimson Abyss)

This team composition acts solely to show examples of older Constructs that may be used to fill in empty slots of players' teams. This team is no longer optimal and will see minimal use. This does not mean Constructs shown here that do not appear in stronger teams are useless, only that they are not the most effective option available.
Blue

Luminance

Starter.
Luminance should avoid being set anywhere but Blue as both Crimson Abyss and Rigor rely heavily on their Blue Pings. Crimson Abyss requires a Blue 3-Ping to activate her Core Passive, while Rigor benefits greatly from using her Blue Pings to reduce enemy Defense to increase her personal damage output.
Luminance acts as the starter of this team to set up for future rotations with the Level 18 effects of her Signature Move’s Leap. Luminance should swap to Crimson Abyss as soon as possible.
Luminance's Leap is required for her to be an effective Physical Support. If players plan on obtaining a Signature Weapon for Luminance, they should obtain Type Zero instead of Dragon Wind, as Dragon Wind is sub-optimal despite being her Signature Weapon.
Red

Rigor

Due to Crimson Abyss' SS-Rank passive, Rosetta should be set in Red. With her SS-Rank passive, Crimson Abyss' Red orb 3-Ping becomes a stronger option than her Yellow orb 3-Pings to activate her Core Passive.
Rigor's Leap should be considered a minimum investment for this team as it increases her DPS by a significant amount.
Yellow
Leader

Crimson Abyss

Leader.
With her SS-Rank passive, Crimson Abyss' Red orb 3-Pings are stronger than her Yellow orb 3-Pings when activating her Core Passive. As such, Red orbs will be more frequently used than Yellow, making Yellow the optimal placement for Crimson Abyss.

1st Gen (Entropy)

This team composition acts solely to show examples of older Constructs that may be used to fill in empty slots of players' teams. This team is no longer optimal and will see minimal use. This does not mean Constructs shown here that do not appear in stronger teams are useless, only that they are not the most effective option available.
Blue

Luminance

Starter.
Luminance is best placed in Blue due to the frequent usage of Blue Pings by Entropy and Rigor.
Luminance acts as the starter of this team to set up for future rotations with the Level 18 effects of her Signature Move’s Leap. Luminance should swap to Entropy as soon as possible.
Luminance's Leap is required for her to be an effective Physical Support. If players plan on obtaining a Signature Weapon for Luminance, they should obtain Type Zero instead of Dragon Wind, as Dragon Wind is sub-optimal despite being her Signature Weapon.
Red
Leader

Entropy

Leader.
Entropy should avoid any team slot other than Red as he requires Yellow and Blue 3-Pings to activate his Core Passive. Red 3-Pings are rarely used as Entropy's Red Ping sees more use activating his Core Passive.
Yellow

Rigor

Rigor's optimal placement in this composition is Yellow as her Leap gives her QTE the ability to gather enemies. As Entropy's Blue Ping shares the same effects, Rigor is best set in Yellow to avoid redundancy and make best use of her QTE's effects while providing optimal support.
Rigor's Leap should be considered a minimum investment for this team as it increases her DPS by a significant amount.

Beginner Friendly/F2P Options

This composition exists solely for new players who need a coverage team/general idea on where to start their team. Recommendations on investment will only be given if a Construct can fill a specific niche. Players with more experience/access to more Constructs should use this composition as nothing more than a guideline on how to fill empty slots they may have in their teams.
Blue

Eclipse

Despite her placement here, Eclipse does not provide much benefit to a Physical Team's performance until SSS-Rank. Eclipse is a fairly decent Physical Support once at that point of investment, but this may not be an investment every player is willing to make as the cost outweighs the benefits. However, Eclipse is currently the only option available if players do not have access to Liv: Luminance, who greatly outclasses Eclipse with the right investment.
Red
Leader

Blast

Leader.
Blast may serve as a temporary Attacker until a stronger option is available to players. Bianca: Zero is potentially stronger than Blast, but is not listed as her use cases are more limited due to her lack of AoE.
Yellow

Storm

Starter.
It is not recommended to invest in Storm, as Across the Ruined Sea introduces beginner missions that reward players with a S-Rank selector containing all S-Rank Constructs up to Luna: Laurel. Players are strongly recommended to pick Rosetta: Rigor from the selector as there are no budget options for this role that come close to competing with Rigor's debuffs.
Ayla: Brilliance and Kamui: Bastion may also be used as budget alternatives for Physical Tanks. While both provide lower Defense reduction than Storm, they bring the benefit of being able to apply their debuffs from off-field, which may be more useful in many compositions.

Fire Teams

Main (Competitive)

This composition shows the recommended investment to compete at higher levels. Investment recommendations will not be available to the majority of players. Refer to Main (Budget) for a more accessible setup.
Blue

Empyrea

Recommended investment: SS-Rank, Signature Weapon
Empyrea fills in Blue to allow for uninterrupted rotations.
SS-Rank should be considered the minimum investment for Empyrea as it significantly improves her gameplay, potential damage, and buffs. Her Signature Weapon greatly improves her gameplay and allows use of Weapon Resonances, which can make a great difference in both her and the team's performance.
Red
Leader

Hyperreal

Leader. Recommended investment: SS3-Rank, Signature Weapon
Hyperreal should avoid being placed in Blue due to Starfarer's frequent usage of Blue Pings. Activation of Hyperreal's QTE through use of Blue 3-Pings can cause a significant loss of time.
Hyperreal's Signature Weapon is highly recommended as it significantly improves his gameplay. SS-Rank serves as a very strong overall boost to Hyperreal, while SS3-Rank solves potential Energy issues and indirectly improves damage output by allowing Hyperreal to switch his 2 set Memories, as he no longer requires 2 set Cottie
Yellow

Starfarer

Starter. Recommended investment: SS-Rank, Signature Weapon
Frequent use of Yellow Pings allow for consistent triggers of Starfarer's QTE.
Starfarer acts as the starter of this team to use Blue Pings to immediately set up Fire Resistance reduction for Hyperreal while setting up the Amplifier Class passive. Starfarer should swap to Hyperreal after using a Blue Ping.
Starfarer's Signature Weapon significantly improves her gameplay and provides synergy with her SS-Rank passive. SS-Rank allows for persistent application of Starfarer's Fire Resistance reduction debuff from off-field when used in tandem with her Signature Weapon, and provides consistent application of this debuff while on-field. Starfarer may occasionally use her Pain Cage build [1] in this composition for War Zone. This relies on Starfarer having both her SS-Rank and Signature Weapon as she cannot use 4 set Da Vinci without drawbacks otherwise.

Main (Budget)

This composition serves as a more budget friendly version of the Main (Competitive) composition, offering guidelines on further investment. Unless explicitly stated as otherwise, players should invest based on what can be reasonably afforded before using investment recommendations as a guideline. (For example, obtaining SS-Rank despite Signature Weapon being recommended, as SS-Rank can be obtained through Phantom Pain Cage.)
Blue
Leader

Hyperreal

Leader. Recommended investment: Signature Weapon
If Starfarer has her Signature Weapon and Hyperreal is S5-Rank or higher, Hyperreal should swap placements with Empyrea.

As Hyperreal rarely uses Blue 3-Pings, his optimal slot in this composition is on Blue.
Hyperreal's Signature Weapon greatly improves his gameplay, making it a strong recommendation for players who can afford it.
Red

Empyrea

Recommended Investment: SS-Rank
If Starfarer has her Signature Weapon and Hyperreal is S5-Rank or higher, Hyperreal should swap placements with Empyrea.

Frequent use of Red Pings allow for consistent triggers of Empyrea's QTE.
Empyrea's SS-Rank is strongly recommended as it significantly improves her gameplay and increases her buffing potential.
Yellow

Starfarer

Starter. Recommended Investment: Signature Weapon
Frequent use of Yellow Pings allow for consistent triggers of Starfarer's QTE.
Starfarer acts as the starter of this team to set up the Amplifier Class passive. If Starfarer is using her Signature Weapon, she can also use a Blue Ping to set up Fire Resistance reduction for Hyperreal. Starfarer should swap to Hyperreal after using a Blue Ping if using her Signature Weapon.
Starfarer's Signature Weapon greatly improves her gameplay and provides synergy with her SS-Rank passive.

1st Gen

This team composition acts solely to show examples of older Constructs that may be used to fill in empty slots of players' teams. This team is no longer optimal and will see minimal use. This does not mean Constructs shown here that do not appear in stronger teams are useless, only that they are not the most effective option available.
Blue

Pulse

Pulse should take the Blue slot in the team to allow Ember to semi-consistently trigger her QTE while offering the best synergy with Silverfang. If Pulse is used as a substitute Fire Tank while in a team with Liv: Empyrea, she should use her Main Build [2]. In this composition, Pulse uses her Pain Cage build [3] to effectively sub-DPS for Ember.
Red
Leader

Ember

Leader.
Despite Red being one of Ember's stronger options, controlling timings for QTEs becomes inconsistent due to her Red Ping's fast animation. This can lead to a portion of the Ping being unbuffed, leading to suboptimal damage output.
Yellow

Silverfang

Starter.
Silverfang takes Yellow as it provides consistent QTE and Da Vinci triggers as Yellow Pings are Ember's highest source of DPS, and will be used frequently. Ember's Yellow Ping animation is delayed enough that players can trigger Silverfang's QTE and activate Da Vinci in time for the Yellow Ping to damage enemies while being buffed, leading to Yellow being the most consistent slot when it comes to allowing Silverfang to support her team.
Silverfang acts as the starter of this team to allow Ember to use her switch-in skill. Silverfang should swap to Ember immediately.

Beginner Friendly/F2P Options

This composition exists solely for new players who need a coverage team/general idea on where to start their team. Recommendations on investment will only be given if a Construct can fill a specific niche. Players with more experience/access to more Constructs should use this composition as nothing more than a guideline on how to fill empty slots they may have in their teams.
Blue
Leader

Palefire

Leader.
Palefire may serve as a temporary Attacker until a stronger option is available to players. At SSS-Rank with his Leap, Palefire can outclass Karenina: Ember as a Fire Attacker. However, Lee: Hyperreal heavily outclasses both and is much more cost efficient.
Red

Silverfang

Starter.
Silverfang is a relatively weak Fire Support that does not see usage in competitive content. Replacing her with Liv: Empyrea is highly recommended to do as soon as possible.
Yellow

Brilliance

Brilliance may serve as a budget Elemental Tank for players without access to stronger Constructs. In this composition, she must be using 4 set Shakespeare and 2 set Gloria to reduce Fire Resistance.

Ice Teams

Main (Competitive)

This composition shows the recommended investment to compete at higher levels. Investment recommendations will not be available to the majority of players. Refer to Main (Budget) for a more accessible setup.
Blue

Plume

Recommended investment: SS-Rank, Signature Weapon
Plume should be set in the Blue slot due to a general lack of reliance on her Blue pings, as her Red and Yellow 3-Pings are stronger options while in Arctic Form. Plume's Signature Weapon's value lies primarily in opening up the use of Weapon Resonances as they can significantly improve Plume's gameplay and damage.
Red

Glory

Starter. Recommended investment: SS-Rank, Signature Weapon
Glory is best set in Red for consistent QTE triggers from Plume's frequent use of Red 3-Pings.
Glory acts as the starter of this team to gap close and set up the Amplifier Class passive by switching, and his Ice Resistance reduction by activating his Core Passive. Glory should swap to Kaleido as soon as he has closed the gap and activated his Core Passive.
Glory's Signature Weapon is highly recommended as he cannot apply his innate Ice Resistance reduction debuffs from off-field without it. SS-Rank serves as a decently considerable increase to Glory's DPS. SSS-Rank may be a consideration for spenders due to the increase to his Ice Resistance reduction debuff. Glory may occasionally use his Pain Cage build [4] in this composition for War Zone.
Yellow
Leader

Kaleido

Leader. Recommended investment: SSS-Rank, Signature Weapon
Kaleido takes the remaining slot in the team as her QTE can be triggered through Plume and Glory's semi-consistent usage of Yellow Pings or Glory's use of 4 set Da Vinci.
Additional Inver-Shards can be obtained through the Voucher Shop.
SSS-Rank greatly improves Kaleido's buffing potential and provides a considerable boost to her damage output. Signature Weapon is highly recommended as it provides strong benefits along with access to Weapon Resonances, which Kaleido benefits greatly from.

Main (Budget)

This composition serves as a more budget friendly version of the Main (Competitive) composition, offering guidelines on further investment. Unless explicitly stated as otherwise, players should invest based on what can be reasonably afforded before using investment recommendations as a guideline. (For example, obtaining SS-Rank despite Signature Weapon being recommended, as SS-Rank can be obtained through Phantom Pain Cage.)
Blue

Plume

Recommended investment: Signature Weapon
Plume should be set in the Blue slot due to a general lack of reliance on her Blue pings, as her Red and Yellow 3-Pings are stronger options while in Arctic Form.
Plume's Signature Weapon serves as a decent boost to her personal damage.
Red

Glory

Starter. Recommended investment: Signature Weapon
Glory is best set in Red for consistent QTE triggers from Plume's frequent use of Red 3-Pings.
Glory acts as the starter of this team to gap close and set up the Amplifier Class passive by switching, and his Ice Resistance reduction by activating his Core Passive. Glory should swap to Kaleido as soon as he has closed the gap and activated his Core Passive.
Glory's Signature Weapon should take priority over his ranks if affordable as it allows Glory to apply his innate Ice Resistance Reduction debuff from off-field. Glory may occasionally use his Pain Cage build [5] in this composition for War Zone.
Yellow
Leader

Kaleido

Leader. Recommended investment: Signature Weapon
Kaleido takes the remaining slot in the team as her QTE can be triggered through Plume and Glory's semi-consistent usage of Yellow Pings or Glory's use of 4 set Da Vinci.
This Construct can be obtained for free through Dormitory Commission. Additional Inver-Shards can be obtained through the Voucher Shop.
Signature Weapon provides a strong boost to Kaleido's damage and support, and can provide further value through access to Weapon Resonances. If Resonances can not be afforded, Signature CUB may take higher priority, though this only applies while Kaleido serves as the main DPS of the team.

Beginner Friendly/F2P Options

This composition exists solely for new players who need a coverage team/general idea on where to start their team. Recommendations on investment will only be given if a Construct can fill a specific niche. Players with more experience/access to more Constructs should use this composition as nothing more than a guideline on how to fill empty slots they may have in their teams.
Blue
Leader

Vitrum

Leader.
Vitrum may serve as a strong alternative to Lucia: Plume, though high investment is required. The cost of necessary investment can be bypassed through the respective Shard farming mission.
Red

Hypnos

Starter.
Hypnos is a reliable Support Construct who is still relevant in Competitive teams.
Yellow

Qilin

Qilin can serve as a temporary Tank for players’ Ice team. Qilin may be outperformed by Ayla: Brilliance’s Ice QTE Support [6] build when Lucia: Plume is the Main DPS.

Lightning Teams

Main (Competitive)

This composition shows the recommended investment to compete at higher levels. Investment recommendations will not be available to the majority of players. Refer to Main (Budget) for a more accessible setup.
Blue
Leader

Crimson Weave

Leader. Recommended investment: SS3-Rank, Signature Weapon
Crimson Weave may swap placements with Garnet in Phantom Pain Cage.

With optimal play, Crimson Weave will only ever use Blue Pings in her initial rotation. As such, she should be in the Blue slot of the team in order for optimal QTE usage.
Crimson Weave's Rank passives and Signature Weapon are both very significant increases to her personal damage. SS-Rank serves as a significant improvement to her DPS. SS3-Rank allows for optimization of her rotation. SS3-Rank will not provide significant benefit until the release of No.21:Feral Scent. Weapon Resonances can also serve to greatly improve her overall gameplay and damage output.
Red

Empyrea

Recommended investment: SSS-Rank, Signature Weapon (2 Weapon Resonances)
The purpose of using Empyrea here despite not being a Lightning Construct is to make use of her synergy as a QTE support and the buffs from 2 Weapon Resonances, Glorious Spear and Superconducting Axial Ray. If Liv: Lux has access to Weapon Resonances, she will be more effective in this spot than Empyrea.

Empyrea should be set on Red to allow consistent activation of her QTE. Signature Weapon is required for this use case due to Weapon Resonances being a requirement. SSS-Rank is not required for extended fights as this team will not be switching between its members.
Yellow

Garnet

Starter. Recommended investment: SS-Rank, Signature Weapon
Frequent use of Red and Yellow Pings allow for consistent triggers of Garnet's QTE.
Garnet acts as the starter of this team to set up her Victorious War Flag with SS-Rank and the Amplifier Class passive immediately. Garnet should swap to Crimson Weave as soon as possible. Garnet may also use Blue Pings to close the gap in Phantom Pain Cage.
Garnet's SS-Rank and Signature Weapon are both significant improvements to her DPS and supportive capabilities, which will become more important with the release of No.21: Feral Scent. Garnet's SS-Rank passive allows her to set Victorious War Flag whenever swapping, setting up her debuffs for Crimson Weave's initial rotation. If affordable, SSS-Rank is recommended to maximize her Lighting Resistance reduction debuff.

Main (Budget)

This composition serves as a more budget friendly version of the Main (Competitive) composition, offering guidelines on where to begin further investment. Unless explicitly stated as otherwise, players should invest based on what can be reasonably afforded before using investment recommendations as a guideline. (For example, investing in SS-Rank despite Signature Weapon being recommended, as SS-Rank can be obtained through Phantom Pain Cage.)
Blue
Leader

Crimson Weave

Leader. Recommended investment: SS-Rank
Crimson Weave may swap placements with Garnet in Phantom Pain Cage.

With optimal play, Crimson Weave will only ever use Blue Pings in her initial rotation. As such, she should be in the Blue slot of the team in order for optimal QTE usage.
Crimson Weave's SS-Rank passive serves as a significant increase to her personal damage output.
Red

Lux

Recommended investment: SS-Rank
Frequent use of Red 3-Pings allow for consistent triggers of Lux's QTE. Lux requires her SS-Rank, as her innate Lightning Damage buffs are unlocked with her SS-Rank passive.
Yellow

Garnet

Starter. Recommended investment: SS-Rank
Frequent use of Red and Yellow Pings allow for consistent triggers of Garnet's QTE.
Garnet acts as the starter of this team to set up her Victorious War Flag with SS-Rank immediately. Garnet should swap to Crimson Weave as soon as possible. Garnet may also use Blue Pings to close the gap in Phantom Pain Cage.
Garnet's SS-Rank passive allows her to set Victorious War Flag whenever swapping, setting up her debuffs for Crimson Weave's initial rotation.

1st Gen

This team composition acts solely to show examples of older Constructs that may be used to fill in empty slots of players' teams. This team is no longer optimal and will see minimal use. This does not mean Constructs shown here that do not appear in stronger teams are useless, only that they are not the most effective option available.
Blue
Leader

Veritas

Leader.
Veritas will rarely use Blue 3-Pings as her Core Passive only requires Pinging a Blue Orb, regardless of amount. As such, she should avoid being set anywhere but Blue.
Red

Lux

Starter.
Lux is set on Red to allow Veritas to consistently trigger Da Vinci's 4 set effects.
Lux acts as the starter of the team to allow Garnet to trigger a portion of her Core Passive without needing to spend any orbs. Lux can use a Yellow 3-Ping to set up Garnet's QTE, then swap to Garnet to trigger the effects of her Signature Weapon to allow use of Lightning fall upon switch-in.
Yellow

Garnet

As other slots are better used by other team members, Garnet should be set in Yellow. Garnet's QTE will primarily be triggered through 4 set Da Vinci.

Beginner Friendly/F2P Options

This composition exists solely for new players who need a coverage team/general idea on where to start their team. Recommendations on investment will only be given if a Construct can fill a specific niche. Players with more experience/access to more Constructs should use this composition as nothing more than a guideline on how to fill empty slots they may have in their teams.
Blue

Lux

Starter.
Lux is a Support who still sees use in lower investment Competitive teams. However, Lux does not provide a significant increase over any support Construct until SS-Rank as her Lightning Damage buff is locked behind her SS-Rank passive.
Red
Leader

Dawn

Leader.
Dawn may serve as a temporary Attacker until a stronger option is available to players. With her Leap and SSS+ Rank, Dawn may be able to compete with a low investment Bianca: Veritas. Investment is not recommended unless players have no other option.
Yellow

Arclight

Arclight may serve as an effective temporary Lightning Tank for players without access to a stronger option.

Dark Teams

Main (Competitive)

This composition shows the recommended investment to compete at higher levels. Investment recommendations will not be available to the majority of players. Refer to Main (Budget) for a more accessible setup.
Blue

Scire

Recommended investment: SS3-Rank, Signature Weapon
Laurel's ability to activate any QTEs outside of their cooldown allows for consistent use of all QTEs. SS3-Rank is should be considered a minimum as it serves as an extremely significant improvement to Scire, providing a drastic damage increase, Orb rearrangement with SS-Rank, and very strong support through her Thermal Field. Scire's Signature Weapon should also be considered a necessity for this team as it greatly increases Scire's overall value and improves her synergy. Signature Weapon also allows for use of the Deadline Timing Resonance, which is necessary for consistent activation of her SS3-Rank passive.
Red
Leader

Laurel

Leader. Recommended investment: SS-Rank, Signature Weapon
As Laurel’s QTE brings nothing to the team beyond off-field damage and other slots are better used for other members, she takes the remaining position in the team.
Laurel's SS-Rank passive and Signature Weapon both serve as very considerable improvements to her damage.
Yellow

Capriccio

Starter. Recommended investment: SSS-Rank, Signature Weapon
Laurel's ability to activate any QTEs outside of their cooldown allows for consistent use of all QTEs.
Capriccio acts as the starter to activate the Amplifier Class Passive. Capriccio should swap to Scire immediately. Additional Inver-Shards can be obtained through the Voucher Shop.
Capriccio's Signature Weapon should be considered a necessity for this team as Capriccio's DPS is very reliant on her Signature Move being completed before the Amplifier Class passive runs out. Without her Signature Weapon, Capriccio cannot reliably gain Energy fast enough to perform her Signature Move every rotation. SSS-Rank brings considerable inprovements to her damage output and significantly improves her buffs.

Main (Budget)

This composition serves as a more budget friendly version of the Main (Competitive) composition, offering guidelines on further investment. Unless explicitly stated as otherwise, players should invest based on what can be reasonably afforded before using investment recommendations as a guideline. (For example, obtaining SS-Rank despite Signature Weapon being recommended, as SS-Rank can be obtained through Phantom Pain Cage.)
Blue

Rozen

Starter. Recommended investment: SSS-Rank
Laurel's ability to activate any QTEs outside of their cooldown allows for consistent use of all QTEs.
Rozen acts as the starter to allow Laurel to use her switch-in skill to fulfill a portion of her Core Passive. Rozen should swap to Laurel immediately. When Laurel is the team's Attacker, SSS-Rank Rozen will outclass Selena: Capriccio as the optimal Construct for buffs, unless Capriccio is also SSS-Rank or SS-Rank with Weapon Resonances. This only applies when using a team composition that does not encourage switching between members, as Capriccio outclasses Rozen in swap playstyles.
Red
Leader

Laurel

Leader. Recommended investment: SS-Rank
As Laurel can forcibly activate all QTEs with her Core Passive and does not provide any support with her own QTE, she takes the remaining position in the team.
Laurel's SS-Rank passive serves as a very considerable improvement to her damage.
Yellow

Scire

Recommended investment: Signature Weapon
Laurel's ability to activate any QTEs outside of their cooldown allows for consistent use of all QTEs.
Scire’s Signature Weapon is strongly recommended as it greatly improves her supportive capabilities. In the few cases where Scire will need to switch-in to cover Laurel’s downtime, it also improves her damage potential by a considerable margin. In this composition, Signature Weapon should take priority over SS-Rank, as the benefit of obtaining Scire's Signature Weapon far outweighs SS-Rank.

1st Gen

This team composition acts solely to show examples of older Constructs that may be used to fill in empty slots of players' teams. This team is no longer optimal and will see minimal use. This does not mean Constructs shown here that do not appear in stronger teams are useless, only that they are not the most effective option available.
Blue

Rozen

Starter.
Laurel's ability to activate any QTEs outside of their cooldown allows for consistent use of all QTEs.
Rozen acts as the starter to allow Laurel to use her switch-in skill to fulfill a portion of her Core Passive. Rozen should swap to Laurel immediately. When Laurel is the team's Attacker, SSS-Rank Rozen will outclass Selena: Capriccio as the optimal Construct for buffs, unless Capriccio is also SSS-Rank or SS-Rank with Weapon Resonances. This only applies when using a team composition that does not encourage switching between members, as Capriccio outclasses Rozen in swap playstyles.
Red
Leader

Laurel

Leader.
As Laurel can forcibly activate all QTEs with her Core Passive and does not provide any support with her own QTE, she takes the remaining position in the team.
Yellow

Tenebrion

Laurel's ability to activate any QTEs outside of their cooldown allows for consistent use of all QTEs.

Beginner Friendly/F2P Options

Recommendations on investment will only be given if a Construct can fill a specific niche. Players with more experience/access to more Constructs should use this composition as nothing more than a guideline on how to fill empty slots they may have in their teams.
Blue

Rozen

Starter.
Rozen may still see usage in certain compositions. This only applies when using a team composition that does not encourage switching between members, as Capriccio outclasses Rozen in swap playstyles.
Red
Leader

Astral

Leader.
Astral may serve as a temporary Attacker until a stronger option is available to players. However, he is significantly weaker than all other available options, and as such is advised to be replaced as soon as possible. Astral's Leap may allow him to be equal to S-Rank Luna: Laurel but only if Astral is SSS+ Rank at minimum. If Laurel is any higher than S-Rank, she will outclass Astral.
Yellow

XXI

At SSS-Rank, XXI may be able to match or outclass Kamui: Tenebrion. If below SSS-Rank, XXI may serve as a temporary option until raised to a higher Rank, or until players have obtained a stronger option.
