Calcharo Resonance Liberation

Calcharo deals Electro damage to nearby targets and enters the Deathblade Gear state, which lasts for 10 seconds. During the Deathblade Gear state:

Calcharo Forte Circuit

Heavy Attack: "Mercy" 

Outside of the Resonance Liberation Deathblade Gear state, when having 3 points of "Cruelty", the Heavy Attack transforms into "Mercy". Upon executing Heavy Attack "Mercy", all "Cruelty" points are consumed to deal Electro damage. This damage corresponds to the Heavy Attack damage. Additionally, 6 points of Resonance Liberation energy and 6 points of Concerto energy are restored. 

Rules for Acquiring "Cruelty": 
- Each hit of the Resonance Skill Extermination Order grants 1 point of "Cruelty". 
- "Cruelty" points are not acquired while in the Resonance Liberation Deathblade Gear state. 

Resonance Liberation: "Death Messenger" 
Within the Resonance Liberation Deathblade Gear state, the Forte Gauge transitions to "Killing Intent". With 5 points of "Killing Intent", the Basic Attack is substituted with Resonance Liberation "Death Messenger". Upon casting Resonance Liberation "Death Messenger", all "Killing Intent" points are expended to deal Electro damage. This damage results in the recovery of 12.5 points of Resonance energy and 20 points of Concerto energy.

We highly recommend using Mech Abomination Echo because it enhances the damage from the Outro skill. Since this build is primarily focused on the Outro damage buff, it has a significant advantage over other options.

While farming, you can also use X2 to X2.
