Sena Xenoblade


Next in this Sena Xenoblade 3 guide, we have her skillset. Sena starts off as part of the Ogre Class. The Ogre class is known to have potent attackers who can decimate their foes in a single blow. Such is the case for Sena, who can push past anyone standing in her way with a single swing of her hammer. She is a character that you would definitely want on your team as that reliable damage dealer.

However, to fully utilize her properly, firstly, let us discuss what arts work best on her early.

Sena Combat Arts

Art Area of Effect Effect
Big Impact Singular Target Frontal Attacks deal blowback damage
Hammerhead Singular Target Side Attacks do 120% increased damage
Maximum Voltage On Character 20% increased damaging attacks that enemies cannot block

As Sena is part of the Ogre class and will most likely act as the primary damage dealer, it is crucial you take arts that maximize her damage. Hammerhead is perfect for this as it exponentially increases your attack damage allowing you to defeat any foe you face. Especially with a good team drawing aggro, the side attacks would be much easier to hit, allowing you to get the increased damage.

Another excellent art is the Maximum Voltage which increases your damage and makes your attacks unblockable. This is such a powerful skill as it guarantees that your attacks will land while giving your increased damage regardless of the circumstances. Such an art is the perfect fit for Sena.

Ouroboros Arts

Arts Area of Effect Effect
Earth Crusher Singular Target At interlink level 3, Launch all enemies
Mortal Bullet Singular Target Knockback and Blowback are ineffective during this art
Dino Upper Small frontal field Weakens enemy defense while dealing Blowback

The ouroboros state allows you to transcend past your regular attacks and deal massive heaps of damage with the extra arts at your disposal. The unrelenting attacks you can deal while in the ouroboros mode will cement your victory.

Soul Tree Abilities

The Ouroboros mode works if you can keep attacking without any worry about being interrupted. Thus you can go for the following Soul Tree abilities depending on which suits your needs the most.

Skill Effect
Merciless Pummeling Increased Combo and Skill Chain
Attack Stone Auto-Attacks deal more damage


Item Effect
White Wraps Ungrounded enemies take increased damage
Attack Stone Auto-Attacks deal more damage

Attack stone works best on Sena early game as it allows you to deal more damage with every hit. This will decrease the time it takes you to defeat an enemy and enable you to be more efficient. However, you can take white wraps if you wish to do some combos with your teammates. It increases your damage to enemies in the air.

Proficiency in Classes

In Xenoblade, you can change your character’s class as you progress through the game. Such is true for Sena Xenoblade. Thus, let us look at which classes Sena excels at and what is best suited for her.

Order  Class Role Proficiency
First Ogre Attacker S
1 Heavy Guard Defender A
2 Tactician Healer/Utility B
3 Zephyr Defender B
4 Swordfighter Attacker C
5 Medic Gunner Healer C

As you can see, Sena shows the most proficiency in the Ogre Class. Her attacking capabilities are too good not to use her as an attacker. However, this does not mean that every attacking class suits her. She doesn’t have much attack speed nor too much mobility making the Flash Fencer and Swordfigher class less compelling for her.

If you wish to use Sena to fill a spot in the team, it could be defender or Healer. Her defensive capabilities are pretty strong, making her a good pick. However, her healing abilities are not up to par with other characters, so only use her if you have no other choice.
