Sword Art Online Alicization Lycoris Unlock Character Classes Scout Berserker Healer Tank

SP Buffer class/Ex skill

  • BUF: Sword Dance -> Howling of the Soldier -> Steel Will -> Soul Extraction -> Soul Resonance -> SP Buffer node
  • Use a total of 50 support skills on allies.
  • Hint: Open your Records menu (aka. AI tactics) and look for someone with the “Buff allies” Arts code (ie. Alice or Asuna). Make sure you have some buff skills unlocked and that the tactic is prioritized. Next, just watch them cast buffs during battles. Alternatively, go to Kirito’s Skills menu and assign buffs to your combat skills. Cast them by holding RB + a button on the D-pad.
  • Call to Sothercrois’ statue

Special/SP Buffer class statue location: Creyst Cove

Creyst Cove is one of the zones in Sothercrois (the southern empire). The story doesn’t take you there in any of the early chapters in Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris. However, you’ll be able to visit the area anyway.

Sao Al Sp Buffer 1

Just go to Vizeah Valley and fast travel to the Hilly Campgrounds save point in the southwest section. The exit to Creyst Cove is nearby.

Sao Al Sp Buffer 2

Once you’re in Creyst Cove, keep heading forward until you spot a cave.

Sao Al Sp Buffer 4

Once you spot the bullfrogs, follow the cavern’s sandy shoal going left.

Sao Al Sp Buffer 5

It will loop around and you’ll see an exit to your right.

Sao Al Sp Buffer 6

This will take you to another cove with a campfire. To the right, however, is a hill.

Sao Al Sp Buffer 7

Turn this way and you’ll spot the SP Buffer class’ statue in the distance.
