A small tortoise emerges with a large stack of papers and spreadsheets.

According to my calculations, when looking at distribution of enemies by venue and by elemental flight, then compared against elemental strengths and weaknesses, I believe the following information may be of use to those looking to enhance their Coliseum strategy.

Metrics:
This is a numerical calculation based on:
  • Elemental Bolt casters
  • Frequency of casters
  • Meditate-using bosses


My raw data can be found here. Many thanks to the amazing @Sylvandyr for their spectacular coli tools and @osiem for the graphics. Special credit to @Daddyselephant for furnishing a constant supply of level 25s.

Can you explain your reasoning for the Workshop? Nature takes no extra damage from anything, but isn't in the top 3. Did you factor in attacking as well?

@WyvernVenom Yes, I took attacking into account - esp for the Workshop, when a mage with an effective flight can do some serious damage.

Ah, I see. I only looked at defense for my physicals, for obvious reasons. What's the difference between an Arcane and a Wind mage? I've had Wind recommended. Is it just because Berserk is all-around better than Enfeeble? I currently have a Nature healer, and since he doesn't attack much I don't have a problem. I'll get around to replacing him someday, but when I do, should the replacement be Arcane or Wind?

I have had some great success with both Ice & Light Fliers in the Mire, so this makes sense to me. If you need help gather data, let me know.
