Rupee should probably be added under “Synergies”. Novel’s core issue is that she fails to provide her Damage Taken debuff during the first full burst cycle, and against units such as the Interception bosses, she can struggle to provide the debuff even during the second burst cycle. Rupee’s Skill 1 guarantees that Novel will have 5 stacks of her unique buff before the second full burst cycle is achieved while also being a high DPs character that can take advantage of Novel’s debuff.
