This build mainly focuses on improving your Skill Cooldown and Skill Power to consistently deal massive damage with your abilities. With this setup, you will be able to spam your skills to apply Laundry. Additionally, Laundry makes the enemy more vulnerable to Non-attribute and Electric attacks, so it is ideal to keep this debuff on enemies as much as possible to maximize the advantage of your weapon's attribute.

Using these modules, you will be able to fully utilize the strengths of your Thunder Cage due to its high Critical Hit Chance, Fire Rate, and its unique Overcharge ability. Further increasing these stats will drastically increase your clear speed, especially if you can apply the Laundry debuff on enemies with your skills, as it lowers their Electricity and Non-attribute Resistance.

・Skill Critical Hit Damage

Since Clean Up has two charges and a low Cooldown, this will be your main skill to create puddles and apply Laundry. It is best to use a Materialized Phase Reactor to benefit from the Skill Power Boost Ratio bonuses.

Valby Exclusive Equipment

Arche-Hydro Symbiosuit

With her Arche abilities, Valby can turn into water, anytime and anywhere. As such, her unique drawbacks are also like water. Over time, moisture evaporates, and she is unable to maintain her shape. Valby's exclusive suit is an environmental shielding suit that was designed to compensate for this. Not only does it assist in Arche-hydrogen bonding, so she can take on human form, but it also features shape memory technology that enables Valby to assemble, and disassemble, with Arche, providing her with various tactical capabilities.
