Vella is the sixth playable character released in the game. She is able to dual wield the same Twin Swords as Lann, but has a very different play style. While Lann is a more offensively focused character, Vella has both offensive and defensive perks resulting in her increased survivability as well as her area of effect attacks that can be rapidly chained together along with her ability to counter-attack.
Little is known of this dominant mistress of the blade sent from across the seas. She spent her childhood by the ocean, but the rest of her past is veiled in mystery. She slices through enemies with twin swords, swirling and gusting like a thunderstorm to decimate anything in her path, and even the strongest mercenaries struggle to match her expertise in combat. She won’t stop until every last Fomor has fallen.
Vella is a versatile character who mixes equal measures of offense and defense to deal damage and leap across the battlefield, escaping enemy attacks without a scratch. She wields either Twin Swords or Twin Chainblades.
Her Twin Sword attacks shred enemies to pieces with multiple hits and deal more damage the more she attacks thanks to Blade Heart. She can spin around her swords to cut multiple enemies, zip around them while slashing at the same time, or even leap up into the air and land with a powerful slash. Even while the enemy attacks, she is able to deliver a devastating counterattack. She's capable of attacking even as she retreats and can reflect enemy projectiles back at them in the process. When necessary, she can dodge with Storm Step, quickly moving a great distance out of the way and avoiding attacks with invulnerability frames. Vella's Active: Cyclone instantly knocks down any boss and deals a stunning number of slashes, culminating with a powerful thrust of the blades. Vella, like Lann, can raise the attack of herself and her allies with Active: Berserker Spirit.
Her Twin Chainblades allow Vella to operate at a distance with a completely different set of attacks. She is able to swing her Chainblades around, pummeling enemies to dust. Her Flurry skill cuts small-fry to bits with a vicious spin cycle. Hailstorm allows Vella to chuck her Twin Chainblades like yo-yos. Avalanche rains death from above, which allows Vella to deliver high damage to a small group or boss. With Frost Jack, Vella can pull herself to an enemy or pull the enemy to herself, allowing for the use of Icebreaker, a punishing kick that also gives Vella a temporary stamina buff. Vella's dodge (Glint) with Twin Chainblades is inferior to her dodge with Twin Swords (Storm Step) in terms of invulnerability frame length; Glint's invulnerability frames lasts almost half as long as Storm Step's. However, with Twin Chainblades, Vella can continue her smash combo even after dodging thanks to Biting Cold. Even as Vella attacks, she stacks up the Cold-Hearted effect. With a high enough stack, she is able to use Active: Heart of Ice which alters some of her abilities, making them even more devastating. For example, Hailstorm will no longer chain into Avalanche, but can be repeated over and over, allowing Vella to relentlessly assault her enemies with blow after blow, as long as stamina allows. Vella's Active: Glacier Terminus counterparts Cyclone; it binds a boss, rendering it disabled, and deals massive damage.
