Starlit Astrologos (SA) is a new A-rank battlesuit for Theresa. She is a Biologic Physical Support Valkyrie.

As SA is only a Physical Supporter and NOT Physical DMG Dealer, her signature gear Zither's Lament and Shuijing set are the best for her as of now. It not only boost SA stats, but also moderately increased bonus for the whole teams.
Zither's Lament not only boosts the team Move Speed by 25% and Physical DMG by 15% for 13s, but also grants 15% bonus Physical DMG when the team perform Ultimates and burst mode attacks.
Shuijing (T) help to boosts team Physical DMG by 8% upon QTE.
Shuijing (M) grants 50% bonus DMG against shields also upon QTE.
Shuijing (B) makes the enemies hit by QTE deal 12% reduced total DMG and take 18% bonus Physical DMG.
3-pc boosts the whole team's Total DMG by 20% for 18%.
For all Shuijing pieces, the condition requirement is going to be QTE, which is a very simple task for SA as her QTE is very easy to trigger and will not switch her in, only letting her to do her skill alongside your main Damage Dealer.
While SA is not suitable main Damage Dealer, she can still deals quite a damage for the enemies, especially with proper stigmata. But of course, most of the chosen stigmatas have support effect as well.
Tesla Band (T) grants 15% Physical DMG and 20% faster Attack Speed when the host are on the field and when the host exit, the team gains 10% Physical DMG.
Mei Beach Party (M) boost 18% Total DMG Multiplier for the host only. When attacking, attacks against enemies gain 15% Total DMG Multiplier for 4s.
Isaac Newton (B) boost 41% Total DMG Multiplier for 5s after attack an enemy.
By using this set-up, the strategy is to hit enemy using SA then immediately switch to your main damage dealer to take advantage of the buff these stigmatas provide.
Theresa Gluttony (T) allows character to gain 18% Total DMG Multiplier for 5s when eat the candy dropped.
Fu Hua Musician (M) grants 10% Fire DMG to teams after the host exit.
Fu Hua Musician 2-pc, the team deals 10% bonus total DMG for 10s after the host exit.
Theresa Origins (T) gain 15% Total DMG Multiplier for 6.0s after using weapon skill
Theresa (M) shorten CDs by 15% after using weapon skill
Theresa (B) provide 10% Attack Speed for 4.0s after using weapon skill
Theresa 2-pc makes allies take 20% less DMG from frontal attacks.
Theresa 3-pc makes basic ATKs, Charged and Combo ATKs of allies gain 15% Physical DMG.
For F2P or new players, then this is the least/best you can use. While each pieces did not contribute much to SA or the teams that much, the 2 pieces and 3 pieces bonus do boost the teams to an extent.
Bright Knight Excelsis | Swallowtail Phantasm | Valkyrie Bladestrike
SA are a Physical Support Valkyrie so obviously she's the most suitable for Physical DMG Dealer Valkyrie, especially the one has Burst mode as SA's Ultimate grants 25% for 18s. During this 18s, the Valkyrie with Burst Ultimate deals a TON of additional damage. Bright Knight Excelsis's Burst Ultimate last for 23s with her own skill; Knight's Tour boost her Total DMG by 50%.
While Swallowtail Phantasm's Burst Ultimate only last for 18s, she also has a skill; Oneiric Shade that boost 35% Physical DMG when she in Burst Mode.
Valkyrie Bladestrike on the other hand has a quite short duration of Burst Mode: 10s, but that doesn't make her less powerful. She, just like the other two, has a skill; Ki Spirit that increases Crit Rate by 10% and Crit DMG by 75% during Burst.
In my opinion, SA is one of the best Support Valkyrie just by her QTE and Ultimate where she doesnt need to be switched in as with that mechanism, we can take most benefit with stigmatas that grant buff after QTE or after attacking enemies using SA.
If by any chance you want to use SA as your main support Valkyrie; make sure you are aware that to use most of her skills, you need to increase her rank to SS-rank. To make it simply:
S-rank : unlocking 60% of her potential.
SS-rank : unlocking 90% of her potential.
SSS-rank: unlocking 100% of her potential.
But you do not have to worry too much as you can buy her fragment at Asterite Shop for 500 Asteroid per fragment.
Thank you for reading dear Captain(s), this is Captain Hoshina and have a nice day.
