Do you want to play a cute little fancy character with an army of puppet assistants and huge mounts shooting deathly blows? Well, I think that is a simplified description of the class you came here to read about :)

General info
Psychea is the second etherkin class in Regenesis update (along with Kytos) and its appearance may fool anyone very quickly. You want to pick this class if you enjoy untraditional ways of damage deals. Unlike the other classes, who usually buff up and release their anger at their targets with huge amounts of dps, Psychea cumulates all the damage in a negative status called Seeds. Their duration is 20 seconds and each time you add new Seed on your target, this duration refreshes until it reaches its amount cap (which is 20). Once your target is served for you and stacked close to 20 Seeds, use one of the 5 "mecha" skills followed by skill which explodes those seeds. You will be surprised how devastating is this little kid.

Tiers and tomes
Psychea is one of those classes who can have their end-game skill build at 150 pre-ascension already. However, Tome skills require ascension and level 150 at least to have all the important tomes (I guess all the classes share this problem before ascension :x).

I am putting here the link to JD database so you will have the information about remaining skill points or possible adjustments to make it fitting your needs ;) https://tinyurl.com/yb9qyzpp 
Edit: There is a problem in JD database in the Force tome where you cant go down to Puppet Master tome, definately really important tome, prioritize leveling it when you reach required level.

Remember, this is just the "general" build with all the required core mechanics of Psychea, useful for any type of content, you will even have spare skill points for your own experiments or affinity needs :)

Ascension unlocks the door to additional 4 skills which you recieve right after you ascend. Not only it includes amazing speed buff, slow curse or explosive skill doing additional damage according to the percentage of you HP and SP, it also rewards you with the most important skill psychea can have. It is called Inked Days and this will be your universal skill pve/pvp wise. Why? It has the shortest cooldown amongst all the ascension skills of all classes (10 seconds), it is an offensive skill hitting 9 times in the range of 20 yards around you, and the most amazingly for the pvp - each successful hit stacks one seed. NOW HOW AMAZING IS THAT!

If you already have explored your little character enough, there is another choice lying towards you. Ascended level 90 offers you one of the 3 affinities to choose. Choose the one that fits your playstyle the most while also considering Chroma skills unlocked through the Vitalization quest after you reach level 120.

Do you prefer offensive abilities of your psychea? Stacking seeds while sitting on your Mecha and exploding them straight away as you cause amazing DPS? This affinity is your pick. Dagos provides you with more critical chances and boosts the explosive abilities of psychea.

Do you prefer the controlling abilities of your puppets, providing them with more survivability and longer duration of their spawn? This is your choice then. Felkin also gives you additional RESistance to your Spirit Shield buff to boost your puppets' controlling abilities.

Do you prefer more defensive or even kiting abilities while setting traps hidden in the shadows and surprising your foes with unexpected impacts? Then you feel for this affinity. Fuwa also offers amazing boost to your Wild Fog and Spirit shield buffs, providing more HP and RES, an enhanced version of your stealth skill Sky Castle and amazing Silence/Slow trap which is a pain in the a55 if you get caught unprepared.

My pick?
With current abilities of psychea and their stacking speed using any affinity, Fuwa is superior to other affinities because it also provides you with numerous buffs the affinity and later the chroma offer. It is the versatile version of psychea which allows you to play your own style, not rely purely on your puppets nor your explosive skills. It improves your health pool and Stun RES which is a necessity for longer survival and the Seed detonations though.

Gears and accessories
There are two possibilities for your gear choice.
1, Battleground gear (HP) - more preffered
2, Diamond gear (RES) - less preffered

Depends on your playstyle which one you take, but many people seem to search for more HP to survive strong attacks. Also, Diamond gear is harder to obtain, that might be the reason people just go for more HP. You can boost your RES other ways too.

Rings - definately Ultimate truth for RES, I hope nothing else needs to be explained.

Necklace - try to get as close to "Woodo Seal·Blessing of Earth" as possible, cause it provides you with 5% Critnull and nice damage reduction. You do not necessarily need critical rate, since you hit as a truck in pvp through the seeds anyway

Esper - Aeolian Firmus would fit psychea the best, crushes enemy's defense and skill level 5 improves your Tier 5 detonation skill

Charms - Sorrowful Grief (Invulnerability skill cooldown reduction), Repentant Moon (stealth skill cooldown reduction; useless if you play fuwa), Untouchable (damage increase of your detonation skills). If you find any other more useful feel free to comment ;)

Trinket - Libertide trinket (Paralyze and Stun RES increase is more than nice for your controling abilities)

Chi - as close to Chi of Nirvana as possible, HP and SP, critnull, critshield... so many necessary stats

Soulstones - you have got to pick from these stats and combine them: Stun, Silence, Health, Skill accuracy, Critnull, Critshield, Damage reduction I would say make one defensive (2x Damage reduction %, 2x Critshield, 1x Critnull) and offensive (1x HP%, 2x HP, 2x Stun or Stun and Silence)

Could you create a JD database build for fuwa psy?

I've only ever been dagos and i'm also surprised you don't take the puppet master tome.

I think I might go fuwa though, thanks for the guide.


Ye there is some kind of a bug on jd database that wont allow you to go down the path to the Puppet master in the Force tome table, forgot to mention it in my review :x of course it is possibly the most important tome for psychea, prioritize it when playing with tomes. To be honest, the build above is based on my fuwa psychea so you can run it without problems, if you use dagos or felkin then of course you need to max required skills and then reset them, in the case of Fuwa, all the affinity skills (except the Trigger: Bomb which is not so useful anyway) are ready to be leveled up ;)
