One thousand years ago, the wizards in the ThunderClap Tower decided to do an experiment. They wanted to see if it was possible to create an artificial Astel. This had never been attempted before, and though it took many tries, their combined power was able to produce a masterpiece. Her name is Rota, an Astel of the Clockwork, who turns the wheel of Fate.
Rota is a Knight, which means that her expertise is tanking, however, it is very difficult for her to tank multiple mobs. She also has high Physical Defense, which makes her tough against monsters who deal physical damage, but she’s slightly weaker against magic attacks. With Star Jewels, you can choose to enhance her Physical Defense, or balance her stats with Magic Defense. As she does not do more damage, it is preferable to raise her defenses, over her offensive abilities.
- Share Pain: Shares the damage that a party member receives
- Taunt: Increases the caster’s threat level against the enemy
- Shield: Creates a barrier that reduces damage
- Lay Down: Attacks a nearby enemy and inflicts damage
- Scold: Increases the threat level of the caster so they have the greatest amount of threat
In PvE DPS classes will find Rota very useful for keeping aggro while they hammer away at monsters. With Astel Healing Potions, DPS classes can keep her topped off and in the fight. Healers will find that, while she does not do a lot of damage, having a healer/tank combo can be preferable for some fights, as they can keep Rota alive without potions and DPS the mobs. Tanks will not find Rota as useful. She does not do much damage, so they would be better served by a healer or DPS astel.
Rota does not perform as well in PvP as she does in PvE. Because she does not have direct crowd control, and her damage is low, she does not have many uses, aside from Share Pain.
