The Gameplay Of The Balter Frame

You can take a look at the Bianca Stigmata gameplay video below. It shows her skills clearly, beautifully, and smoothly:
Skills Guide Introduction:
Here are the vital skills of Bianca Stigmata in Punishing Gray Raven, and they are as follows:
Normal Skills: Orbs
Red Orb (Piercing Thorns): Performs piercing attacks dealing Physical Damage. The number of attacks increases with the number of orbs pinged (2 attacks for 1 or 2 orbs, 5 attacks for a 3-Ping).
Yellow Orb (Conviction): Dashes forward, delivering a horizontal slash followed by an upward thrust to launch the enemy into the air, causing Physical Damage.
Blue Orb (Etching Whirl): Initiates a spinning slash dealing Physical Damage to the target and briefly attracts nearby enemies. Then, the Swordstaff generates a rotating sword shadow, slashing and damaging nearby enemies.
Ultimate Signature Move: Blade Abyss
Bright Candle (Staff Form): In Staff Form, cast Bright Candle to damage enemies within a range and activate Sword Form. In Sword Form, accumulate Stigmata Will upon dealing damage.
Illuminated Abyss (Sword Form): In Sword Form, consume Energy and Stigmata Will to unleash Illuminated Abyss, dealing Physical Damage to the target. More Stigmata Will stacks increase its damage.
Core Passive: Glowing Lanternlight
Afterglow Orb: When entering battle or Staff Form, Afterglow Orbs are generated.
Simulated Matrix: Perform Simulated Matrix by pressing and holding Dodge in Staff Form.
Glowing Lanternlight: In Luminous Realm, tap Signal Orbs of the same color as Afterglow Orbs to deal Physical Damage to targets in range and generate Afterglow Points.
Bianca Stigmata Weapon & Memory Builds
Bianca Stigmata is another character in PGR who doesn’t demand the 6-star signature weapon. F2P players can perform fine using the 5-star Polar Night without significant investment. While the 6-star Hecate improves her gameplay, the Polar Night is good enough for effective combat.
Anyway, she is a character who truly deserves to go for her 6-star weapon, not just for the power boost, but for how magnificent her design and gameplay are.
For F2P players, it’s okay to go for the 5-star Polar Night to save Black Cards. The weapon increases Attack and Crit Damage.
For P2W players, the 6-star Hecate is the ideal signature weapon for Bianca Stigmata. The weapon increases Crit Damage, gains her sword stacks, and triggers her effect of using an upward slash when holding the Basic Attack button.
You can build your Bianca Stigmata in PGR with 6-star memories from the Across The Ruined Sea event or any future events. Avoid wasting resources on 5-star memories. Check her recommended sets below:
4 Charlotte & 2 Leeuwenhoek: Main Build
This set increases her attack, abilities damage, and can rearrange Signal Orbs into 3-Pings while she’s in the matrix.
- 4 Charlotte Memories: TOP.
- 2 Leeuwenhoek Memories: Bottom.
4 Charlotte & 2 Cottie: Signature Focus
This set switches the effect of enhanced Attack from Leeuwenhoek Memories for a more efficient Signature Move activation, reducing the required Energy while also boosting Energy Gain when pinging Orbs.
- 4 Charlotte Memories: TOP.
- 2 Cottie Memories: Bottom.
Note: For fun, I chose the Charlotte & Cottie memory set.
PGR Resonance For Bianca Stigmata
Here are the suggested Resonance setups for Bianca Stigmata’s memories and her 6-star Swordstaff (Hecate) in Punishing Gray Raven:
6-Stars Weapon Resonance: Hecate
- 1st: Glorious Afterglow.
- 2nd: Dead Line Timing.
- 3rd: Matrix Lightning.
- 1st: Glorious Afterglow.
- 2nd: Matrix Lightning.
- 3rd: Incandescence.
Note: Some experienced players suggest that Glorious Afterglow is all she requires for the 6-Stars Weapon. For certain solo situations, Dead Line Timing can also be in use.
All Memory Resonance:
- Top Memory Slots: ATK +15, CRIT +15.
- Bottom Memory Slots: Signature Move.
Team Setup For Bianca Stigmata
For Bianca Stigmata’s team setup in Punishing Gray Raven, prioritize teammates with Physical Elements for best synergy. Here are some Physical Teams suggestions to consider:
Suggested Physical Team
- Tank: Rosetta Rigor.
- Support: Liv Luminance.
F2P Friendly Team
- Tank: Nanami Storm.
- Support: Liv Eclipse.
Note: The game might offer you certain S-rank characters for free, which can include Rosetta Rigor and Liv Luminance.

Pull Recommendation: Is She Worth It?
Bianca Stigmata definitely appears as a F2P-friendly character worth getting in Punishing Gray Raven. Despite requiring 60 attempts to guarantee the summon, she doesn’t require a 6-star weapon to the same degree as most Omniframe characters.
Not only that but even players who obtained the 6-star weapon don’t necessarily need to maximize its Resonance.
In our experience, we noticed that Bianca Stigmata’s gameplay in Punishing Gray Raven can become really repetitive over time, as it often relies on repeating the same combo loop for optimal damage, which can become somewhat boring.
Conclusion: Balter Finally Arrived
In the end, we hope that our Bianca Stigmata guide and builds for Punishing Gray Raven are easy and helpful for everyone, especially F2P players and beginners.
Whether or not you choose to pull for Bianca Stigmat, she is a character many players, including myself, have eagerly awaited her arrival. Also, regardless of her suitability for free players or her repetitive gameplay in Punishing Gray Raven, investing in and upgrading her is genuinely worthy.
Furthermore, let’s not forget the impressive similarity between PGR Bianca Stigmat and the well-known anime character Saber (Artoria Pendragon); this resemblance is truly remarkable.
