Limit Burst

Meteor Swarm is Sophia's Limit Burst. It is a damage-type ability that deals Fire-elemental magic damage to all enemies, while ignoring their SPR by 50%, and greatly reduces their resistance to Fire for the next three turns. Depending on Sophia's rarity, their resistance is reduced by 80% (5★), by 90% (6★) or by 100% (7★). The number hits also differ: it does two, four or five hits, respectively.

Its damage modifier will depend on Sophia's LB level:

Rarity Name Change in Effect Cost
5★ Meteor Swarm Base (Lv. 1) Damage dealt (4x) 22 FFBE Limit Burst crystal.png
Max (Lv. 20) Damage dealt (5.9x)
6★ Meteor Swarm Base (Lv. 1) Damage dealt (7x) 26 FFBE Limit Burst crystal.png
Max (Lv. 25) Damage dealt (9.4x)
7★ Meteor Swarm Base (Lv. 1) Damage dealt (10x) 30 FFBE Limit Burst crystal.png
Max (Lv. 30) Damage dealt (12.9x)


Crescent Rod

Sophia can equip the following weapon types: daggers, swords, staves, rods, instruments and throwing weapons.

She can equip the following armor types: hats, clothes, light armor and robes.

She can equip accessories.

Equipping her Trust Master (the Crescent Rod) will trigger her Trust ability "Earnest Academic", a special active ability which enables Sophia to use her offensive skills (except Southern Cross) three times in one turn. Her Crescent Rod and her Sophia's Hairpin also have one exclusive-effect each for Sophia: the rod's is "Connection Symbol" (recovers Sophia's MP by 5% and increase counter chance by 100%), while accessory's is "Symbologists' Bond" (increase Sophia's MP by 20% and MAG by 50%).



Sophia, Greek for wisdom, is a central idea in Hellenistic philosophy and religion, Platonism, Gnosticism, Orthodox Christianity, Esoteric Christianity, as well as Christian mysticism, and is commonly represented as a goddess. Sophia is also a primary deity in Gnosticism.

As a feminine given name of Greek origin, Sophia retains the meaning of "wisdom", with variant names Sofia and Sophie among others in Western culture.
