—Trait description

Mech-Accord Caster, colloquially known as Drone Caster, is a branch of the Caster class in Arknights.

Mech-Accord Casters are identical to Core Casters in which they attack one target at a time with an identical range, but controls a "Drone" (not to be confused with the RIIC resource or the enemy type) that attacks in tandem with them, albeit only dealing 20% of the Caster's ATK that increases by 15% on subsequent attacks, which can go as high as 110% and resets upon attacking another target, and have lower ATK in return for faster attack interval.

All Mech-Accord Casters except Minimalist have the ability to "lock" the Drone onto an enemy with their skills, in which it will continue attacking the target even after they left the Caster's range. It is also worth noting that the Drone can still attack even if the Mech-Accord Caster is disabled (e.g. Stunned) or disarmed by certain enemies.

Strategies

  • Mech-Accord Casters perform a similar role to Core Casters, but trade ATK for a fast attack speed and multi-hit attacks using their Drone. Although their single-target damage can eventually surpass that of Core Casters, their drone requires a period of uninterrupted attacking to ramp up in damage, making them perform best when a single large target has to be focused down.
  • Because nearly all Mech-Accord Casters can lock their Drones onto enemies, they have utility when it comes to attacking enemies even after they leave their range, such as against fast-moving enemies.

Tips

  • Any form of RES reduction will make Mech-Accord Casters better against enemies with high RES, specifically when against Elite and Boss enemies.
  • Mech-Accord Casters' low ATK means that Inspiration buff, specifically those that increase ATK, will greatly increase their damage output.
  • Since Mech-Accord Casters need to focus on one enemy to maximize their damage output, Artilleryman Snipers and Splash Casters are recommended to clear weaker enemies for them.
  • ASPD buffs will help Mech-Accord Casters to stack the drones' ATK faster.
