Building your characters correctly is one of the key aspects of Persona 5 Tactica, and the new playable character Erina is no exception to that. Here’s our guide on the best build for Erina in Persona 5 Tactica. 

The best build for Erina in Persona 5 Tactica

Erina is one of the first characters you get to play as in Persona 5 Tactica, along with Joker and Mona. She’ll be a pretty key figure of your team for a while, at least until you unlock Panther a few missions into the game. She’s a pretty great character, and one of my favorites to use in-game. Erina was my personal backup character for the entire game, all the way to the endgame, after I had found my personal favorite team. So let’s talk about her best build.

Erina’s best build in Persona 5 Tactica is a bit different from the rest of the crew. I personally believe she has the most potential as a general attacker, with a focus on ranged. This is due to the fact you can’t equip a sub-persona to her. This means you can’t really buff one skill or another if you want to, and her skills don’t really sway her one or the other, thanks to her party selection buff being HP. She’s a great ranged attacker, and a pretty good melee attacker too. So making sure she has a good weapon equipped is paramount to making her build work well in Persona 5 Tactica. She also has a movement and skill range bonus on the right-hand side of the skill tree, which are fantastic skills to access.

Ambush your enemies

One of Erina’s main build focuses in Persona 5 Tactica should be around the Ambush skill that she gets on her skill tree. This skill sets an area, and if any enemies walk into this area, they’re shot by Erina. This stops them in their tracks and allows you to be able to One More them next turn. This skill is pretty fantastic if you use it right, and she gets it within the skill tree, so be sure to grab that and try it out. 

Persona 5 Tactica is available for purchase on Steam.
