Star Ocean: Anamnesis - Orbs List (Global version)

This is Star Ocean: Anamnesis List of Orbs which is updated depending on the current meta of Global version.

You can use the list as your reference. This list and all of description and/or analysis are not absolute since this is still based only on community/personal assessments and calculation.

Note to players:

  • Gray colour indicates a limited-time weapon.
  • Atk/Int stats are derived from the weapon at level 20.
  • LB Factor Level is the limit break level at which the third factor is unlocked on the weapon (if applicable)
Blue Star Gadget507510+15% INT

-10% Damage Taken

5Orb Coin Shop


Solidly grindable orb/10

It's grindable/coinable. 15% INT is okay, on par with the other basic weapons with the 15% factor. Damage taken is a nice bonus, and free regen. Honestly, it's pretty good. Added with sSophia's already self-scaling INT stat and you get a pretty significant damage boost. As a bonus, it gives a bit of survivability too.
Craggy Gem648651+15% Multi-Target Damage

+30% AP Recovery from normal attacks

+10% Damage
5Orb Coin Shop


Less good grindable/10

It's in the coin shop as well. Factors are quite good, except for damage, which is commonly overwritten by Maria. Overall, Bluestar's INT will give more damage (and not be overwritten) compared to this. May have niche use if you're true soloing with AP on normals.
Oceans Eye529532Thunderstruck +20% Damage

+10% Single Target Damage

60% Chance to survive a fatal blow, if HP is 20% or above
5Luin D'Mont Event ShopSSophia (Skill)

SSophia's event weapon. It's free, it's one of the first orbs we'll have, and it buffs her main attack skill (which actually matters for her). ST Damage is nice, and a free 60/20 guts isn't bad either. Solid if you don't pull something better or need help surviving.
Blackseed Watermelon Orb959965+30% Lightning and Dark Element Damage

80% Chance to survive a fatal blow, if HP is 10% or above

-30% Damage Taken when HP is under 50%
5GachaSSophia (Element)

I'll have some of those melons/10
Godlike orb for SSophia, as she's pretty much the main candidate for its use. First weapon to get a combined elemental factor, though no user makes use of both lightning/dark.
Evil Pumpkin956963All Attributes +20%, Plant Damage +30%

Critical Rate +10%, Critical Damage +10%

5% HP Recovery per 3 seconds
3Gachanot scary/10The sad child of the banner, a subpar pickup. Orb units are very few on GL, and SSophia is limited, meaning the majority of players will not have a way or reason to use this. If you have her but missed Melon, then it's a reasonable use if for whatever reason you want to bring her to the Halloween boss (where she is innately off-element). 2nd and 3rd factor aren't bad, but for casters, all-element isn't as good as it sounds
