Misha’s Kit and Best Cycle Rotation (At Max Level)

Misha’s kit is very good for freezing enemies when played correctly. Let’s look closer at her kit to understand the ideal way to play her.

  • E—Excuse Me, Please! (Basic Attack): Deals flat Ice Damage to a single enemy, equal to 130% of his Attack.
  • R—Room Service (Skill): Deals Blast Ice damage equal to 250% of Misha’s Attack to the primary target and 100% of his Attack to adjacent enemies. Also increases the Ultimate Hits per Action count by 1.
  • G—Gonna Be Late! (Ultimate): It does a 3 hits Bounce attack by default, hitting the primary target for 72% of Misha’s Attack and other random enemies after that for 72% of his Attack. His Ultimate hit count can possess up to 10 hits per action, and using his Ultimate resets the count to default. Furthermore, each hit of Misha’s Ultimate has a 24% base chance to freeze the enemy (before the attack lands) for 1 turn. Frozen enemies don’t take their action and take Ice Damage equal to 36% of Misha’s Attack at the beginning of their turn.
  • Horological Escapement (Talent): Increases the Ultimate’s Hits per Action and regenerates 3 energy when an ally consumes a Skill point.
  • Wait, You Are So Beautiful (Technique): Creates a dimension, Dream Prison, which stops all action of enemies caught in it, lasting for 15 seconds. Misha’s next Ultimate will deal 2 more hits when he enters battle in Dream Prison.

Misha’s kit is heavily Ultimate focused, which deals multiple hits of damage to multiple enemies and has a 24% base chance of freezing enemies. The hit count of his Ultimate increases when using his Skill and when his allies consume Skill points.

The ideal way to play her will be to use his Skill or Basic attack until his Ultimate gets the max hit stack of 10 and then use his Ultimate. Using his Ultimate early will be a waste unless you really need to freeze your opponents during that turn.

Misha’s kit shines when using her best Relic and Planar Ornament builds. Here are the best Cavern Relics, Planar Ornaments, and main and sub-stats for the best Misha build.
