[A weakened Demon Lord and an assassin of the alley way]

Special Ability

Main Article: Combination

Being a duo character with a tag-team playstyle, Lu and Ciel do not share mana and also have a special system known as Combination. When either Lu or Ciel is tagged out, the inactive character will rapidly recover 6 MP per second (1 MP in PvP). Players will have access to a special mechanic known as Switching to allow them to play as either Lu or Ciel in both towns and dungeons, and you can change between them via pressing Switching.png V (default key and only available where combat is possible), combos or skills in dungeons, or the character window in towns. When switching via the V key, the character switching out will be invincible, while the character switching in will be in Super Armor. Cooldown time for V key is 1 second. In addition, Lu and Ciel have a fourth resource known as the Combination Gauge, which is used for certain skills and can typically only be filled when the player lands a successful hit by switching through a normal combo or a skill.

Tips and Details

  • You will always start out as Lu when entering PvP or dungeons.
    • If Representing Stats is set to Lu/Ciel, Ring of Fury will only recover Awakening Beads if Lu is wearing it. Otherwise, it must be worn by the representing character.
  • Lu and Ciel's stats can be toggled to be either separate or unified. Their stats can both be completely independent of each other, have only Lu's stats apply to both characters, or have only Ciel's stats apply to both characters. By default, it is set to Lu only.
  • Lu and Ciel share equipment but do not share costumes or accessories. However, you are able to share common accessories appearance with the Magic Wardrobe.
    • Any attack or defense increases, with the exception of accessory/costume set effects, are still shared, even though the status window does not display this.
    • Likewise, HP sockets and non-set bonuses are also shared, though these do show in the status window properly.
      • Unlike attack or defense, HP also still shares through set effects. Unlike the HP increases from other sources, this is again not displayed in the status window.
  • When using Skill Rings, if their stats are set to separate, Switching Skills will always apply the ring of the character being switched to. For example, wearing a Ring of Tenacity on Lu will always increase the damage of Stomp, even if you start the skill while on Ciel.
    • For Combination Skills and certain Actives, the skill ring of the character that casts the skill is taken into account. Switching while the skill is still on-going (such as while Eschaton is traveling or Shadow is installed) will not affect the skill's damage.
    • Other sources of skill damage increase, such as through set effects, will apply to a skill for as long as that character is in play. Switching during the skill will change the damage to fit the current character.
  • When opening the First, Second, or Third Job Change Promotion Cube, Lu and Ciel will both receive a set of promo avatars.
  • Just like Deadly Chaser's Silver Shooters, Ciel's gunblades will do physical damage at close range.
  • Ciel's magic bullets consume 4 MP per shot.
  • Ciel's recovery from knocked-down status is faster compared to the other characters.
  • Due to how character hitboxes move according to their animations in this game, when using a skill where both characters appear (such as a Combination Skill or Hyper Active), the character that was in play at the time determines where your own hitbox currently is. Therefore, in skills where Lu moves off the ground such as in Twilight Judgment when using the additional bullets, she is entirely safe from ground-based attacks, whereas Ciel is not.
    • This is especially relevant for attacks that ignore i-frames like many attacks in Master Road, as Lu is predominantly in midair during most skills with both characters, where Ciel usually remains on the ground.
    • This also affects the actual area of effect of those skills as either Lu or Ciel can be shifted to one side to make room for the other character appearing, moving the skill along with them accordingly.


Trivia

  • Lu/Ciel's job path in Lore/Story would be the Innocent path.
  • Lu/Ciel's official theme song is Loadstar.
  • Lu and Ciel officially join the main cast after the Ash Covered Village story quest Save the Blacksmith!. Prior to joining the main cast, all dungeons will re-use one of 3 generic dungeon clear lines for both Lu and Ciel.
  • An interview releasing information about the duo had implied that Lu and Ciel are comparatively weak when played individually and stated that it is optimal to utilize them both in gameplay to cover for each other's weaknesses.
  • In her artwork, Lu is much smaller than Ciel, while her in-game model size is only a bit shorter than Ciel.
  • The symbol of a four-pointed star is a recurring motif in Lu and Ciel's design.
    • It appears on both their foreheads, as well as takes the place of their pupils in their eyes, with the coloration changing depending on the path, ranging from a shining bright white to pitch black.
    • The contract sigil further embellishes the star with a ring and a set of diamonds passing through it. Its design is also adjusted depending on the path.
      • This sigil is engraved on Lu's back and Ciel's chest, as shown in their prologue scenes, with the ring split in half, with Lu having the top half and Ciel the bottom half. It is rarely ever visible however, and many costume sets that expose this part of their body even exclude it entirely.
  • Prior to joining the El Search Party, Lu and Ciel are the first to encounter Karis before meeting the El Search Party, her being the one who killed Ciel before his contract with Lu.
  • Each of their 4 job advancements has the two take a different role within their duo dynamic, as well as the soul contract that sustains them.
    • As Catastrophe, they fight as equals, and the contract is dismissed entirely.
    • As Innocent, they fight as one and the same, fusing their souls to allow both of them to use the full strength of the other.
    • As Diangelion, they fight not as partners, but as a deranged queen and her tool as Ciel is overcome by excess power flowing through the contract.
    • As Demersio, they do not truly fight as partners, as only Ciel still fights willingly, while Lu, lacking most of a soul due to making a second contract, follows him, unfeeling and empty.
  • Interestingly, the class icons of the two paths that fight together (Catastrophe/Innocent) and the two paths that have one take full control (Diangelion/Demersio) have both characters of one of said paths face the other way as both characters of the other of said paths, creating a sort of symmetry in their designs.
  • Lu and Ciel wrote the skill note Lu Crater.
  • Unlike other characters, Lu and Ciel are the only characters to receive a unique skill cut-in for their 1st Job Class. This can only be obtained by advancing to their 2nd Job.
  • Before the 02/12/2015 KR patch, Lu/Ciel's skills had much higher MP costs to compensate for the fact they have 2 separate MP bars, as well as Call to Arms increasing potion efficiency. Tenacity skills used to cost 150 MP, while Strength skills used to cost 300 MP.
  • While other characters all gain at least 2 command extensions upon advancing to their 3rd Job Class, Lu/Ciel only receive one that simply varies slightly between Lu and Ciel, and they are not considered separate commands in the Command UI. The only exception to this is Demersio, who does properly gain 2 unique command extensions.
