Nanami Pulse is the ultimate model of Nanami. She is equipped with IR-005 propulsion wheels on her heels, which lets her blast across the battlefield at lightning fast speeds. She can dash through enemies while putting herseslf in an overclocked mode, granting her access to new abilities. Here is a quick rundown of Nanami Pulse’s abilities, builds, and more in Punishing Gray Raven!

Overview & Strategy

Nanami Pulse is an S-class Tank that excels at dealing fire elemental damage. Both her red and yellow orb skills deal great damage, and they also deal fire damage if used with at least three orbs. Her blue orb skill deals good damage too, but it’s used mostly for the shield and super armor bonuses, which let Nanami Pulse attack her foes without interruption.

Nanami Pulse needs a bit of setup for her to excel in battle. Soften your foes up with her red and yellow orb skills, and use her blue orb skill to stay in the fight longer. Your goal is to get her signature move as quick as possible, as that increases her damage output significantly.

Nanami Pulse is a late bloomer – she needs a lot of resources for her to really start shining. As mentioned earlier, her signature skill lets her reduce enemies’ fire resistance, and this combos well with all three of her passive skills, which only activate when she is overclocked. The downside is that you won’t unlock them until she’s ranked up all the way to SSS+ rank.
