Illusion Connect Ashwaya Character Guide

Next up, it’s time to finally review one of the characters that receive the most love/hate reactions… ever! Of course, it’s Ashwaya – the character that makes an appearance in every banner, even if she’s not featured in it. Somehow she will find a way to be summoned by you, at least 10 times.

All jokes aside, since Ashwaya has received the mini “rework” (or adjustment if you may) she’s a pretty decent unit. She is especially good in PvP, where you can just overwhelm the opponent with numbers. Her kit is not too crazy, but the fact that she fills the entire board with Nightmares is brilliant.

If given the correct gear, Ashwaya’s Nightmares can destroy opponents in a matter of seconds. They all deal % of Ashwaya’s ATK and receive % of her HP, so they can also be fairly tanky.

In this article, you can find everything you need to know about Ashwaya, as well as which equipment would be best for her. So without further ado, let’s check it out!

The Best Equipment for Ashwaya


In my opinion, this is the best equipment for Ashwaya in Illusion Connect. You want to give her pretty much everything that grants ATK or ATK to summoned, since all of her summoned Nightmares inherit damage based on Ashwaya’s flat ATK.

Therefore, I believe for a weapon Maharaj’s Punishment (UR) is hands-down the best there is. It is her own UR weapon. For the armor piece, I think Scarlet Cuirass is pretty decent in addition to Maharaj’s Crown (UR). There may be better options, but I like the ATK % increase for each incoming attack.

The reason why I believe Scarlet Warboots are great on Ashwaya is because they grant ATK%. When it comes to the accessory, Maharaj’s Vessel (UR) or Lord Autumn’s Piece (UR) are also perfect fits for Ashwaya, since they both grant the summons even more ATK%.
