Compared to Disgaea 4, Artina has slightly higher Aptitudes, slightly stronger specials, and her Angel Glitter Evility was also buffed. She now learns debuff skills and can naturally learn Heal spells beyond Giga. She has below average physical defensive stats, but her magic-based stats such as INT and RES are great.
Artina is mainly a Gunner due to her high HIT and SPD stats and native A-rank Gun Mastery. She may also be a Bow user, but her ATK stat and default Aptitude are average compared to her HIT. It is recommended that the player should equip a Staff in order to use her offensively due to Spells having longer ranges than both Bows and Guns. Her Staff Mastery and INT Aptitude/Stat are more than enough to use her in this role.
She can also be a good support unit due to her Angel Glitter now increasing nearby Male units' stats by 30%. It is recommended to pass on buff skills by the Pupil-Master System in order to increase her effectiveness as a support unit.
