Illusion Connect Selena Character Guide

If you’re wondering which tank to use and somehow ended up picking Selena, here’s a complete character guide for Selena in Illusion Connect. While she’s a pretty popular tank that has the ability to defy death *twice*, she is by no means the best (nor the worst) tank in the game.

Selena has pretty steady damage and sustain, and with her Awakening she can restore quite a lot of HP to herself and Leader, as well as buff the Block Rate. All in all, she is a solid tank that will do well in most lineups for the simple fact that she’s able to cheat death. Pair that up with a decent healer or two, and chances are she will never die.

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

The Best Equipment for Selena


In my opinion, this is the best equipment for Selena in Illusion Connect. You can pretty much throw any tank equipment at her and chances are she will do great since the 2 immunity to death is enough to keep her alive in the frontline in most situations.

Of course, as a weapon, there’s also Tyrfing which is okay for adding 1 more Death RES (I haven’t tested it though, but in theory, it should work). I much rather add all the Block equipment on her and make her a super tank. For Armor, you can use Legendary Chef Uniform (that’s what I prefer) or you can go for Lionheart Armor and other HP/DEF equipment – however, I do believe that it’s less effective.

Since there is an entire set that can make Selena OP in the Inscription Gallery, that’s going to be the absolute best one you can give Selena. It’s scarcely available in the UR gacha at the moment (the armor and the boots), so until the remaining pieces are released, I’ll post them like this:

Selena is a very straightforward person with some funny jokes up her sleeve. The best ones pop up when she’s fighting Pan actually – apparently she doesn’t like Pan very much.
