|Using Kliff's high Res to it's utmost potential, Kliff can nuke enemies with a high damage Glacies with the correct set up.
Glacies acts as the crux of the build. In the right conditions, Kliff can get an amazing 40 bonus damage from Glacies, with even more if he gains buffs, spurs, or drives, nuking absolutely anything in his path. As such, the following skills are used to either buff Glacies' bonus damage or allow him to proc it faster.
Sagittae acts to buff Glacies. As long as he can lower his Atk stat enough to proc the effect from it (which he will likely do, with a low 39 with Fort Def/Res. 3 and an Atk bane), his +5 buff in all stats, specifically Res in this case, will bring his Res up to a nice 37 in combat, already granting him a nice amount of damage from Glacies.
The constant +6 buff to his Res and Def with Fort. Def/Res 3 while only losing 2 Atk causes this skill to win over Fort. Res 3. Used as a mediator to lower his Atk while buffing his nuking potential.
Chill Spd 3 can be used to lower the enemy's speed enough to either 1) stunt a double on Kliff or 2) allow him to double, building his special faster or allowing him to use Glacies in the same battle. However, Chill Spd can be replaced with Swordbreaker to deal with arena threats Kliff wouldn't be able to double normally.
With Kliff's high 38 Res with Fort. Def/Res 3 and a Res boon (34 without), he can ploy enemies for more damage from Sagittae. He can also swap this out for other ploys, such as Def and Atk Ploy to have a more supportive role.
Because Sagittae only applies to pre combat stats, Kliff can use the Brazen Atk/Res 3 seal to great potential. Applying the in combat +7 buff to his Atk and Res adds to both his damage without Glacies and greatly improving his Glacies damage when it procs, allowing him to nuke absolutely anyone in his path as long as he has his special ready.
Use of Ardent Sacrifice allows Kliff to fall into Brazen range much easier, as it is harder to do so with his nice bulk. One use of Ardent Sacrifice drops him into range. Of course, if you can reliably drop him into range, feel free to swap Ardent Sacrifice with a movement skill like Reposition or a Dual Rally.
