In Xenoblade Chronicles 3, Mio is one of the primary characters who is controlled by players. You can learn more about Mio’s character description, her appearance in the game’s plot, and her class and skills, in this guide.
Mio, a member of the opposing Agnus country, is an off-seer like Noah. She works in a different trio with Sena and Taion as the second protagonist in the narrative.
After a boss encounter in which Noah and Mio combine to form the Ouroboros, you’ll be able to control Mio and discover more about her toward the end of Chapter 1.
Mio’s class skills as a heavy tank enable her to avoid harm or deal damage reduction to herself or her allies. As a result, you should employ Mio’s tanking skills in combat.
- Stormy Gale increases Agility by 20%.
- I’ll Defend you gives a 13% chance to stop attacks on teammates in a specific area.
- When you evade an attack, Split-Second Counter deals 150 percent of the attack damage.
- Ether’s Sanctuary increases 15% in Ether Defense.
Mio’s Master Skills also increase her ability to avoid damage, strengthening her protection and increasing the damage her Physical Arts do.

- Fighting Prowess increases the damage that Physical Arts deal by 40%.
- Doublestrike II increases each auto-probability attack to hit twice by 17%.
- Agility is increased by 12% with Tailwind II.
Notably, Steady Striker is another choice that gives Mio increased attack speed. This can be helpful given that the majority of Defenders hit very slowly. This will raise the overall DPS against foes when combined with attacks that provide high damage.
- Gear Support increases Agility by 20%.
- Iron Temple Guard increases maximum HP by 25%.
Mio has access to four Talent Arts as a Zephyr.

Twin Rings, Mio’s go-to weapon, can deter attacks and render adjacent allies defenseless. Gemini Strike is Mio’s initial class Talent Art. Gemini Strike is a maneuver designed to deflect opponent attacks while also drawing their attention.
The two Master Arts to employ with Mio are as follows:
- Crash Out increases Aggro by 70% when Art is used.
- For Zephyrs without AOE, Ground Beat offers Frontward AOE, which is helpful.
