Hello everyone and welcome to my 204th analysis, this time featuring Ingenica.
Overview: Armed with a very impressive Base 3553 Speed, Tough, and various status control skills alongside Trait Disable and damage boosts, Ingenica is a formidable opponent that can trouble many common team compositions. She has some 0 CD skills against CD Activators as well, and the Artifact Hater she commonly uses is a perfect answer to threats like Santerion and Nitroblaster. Ingenica unfortunately has no deny skills, but nevertheless she can be a great addition to any team, especially if you consider the fact that you get her Cells every day by completing Daily Quests, making her essentially free to get.
-My Favourite Trait
Runes: 3 Team Speed/1 Speed 2 Team Speed

Relics: Amulets and Staves
My Favourite Trait is by far Ingenica's most impactful attack, applying Trait Disable to all enemies and removing their buffs. This can get rid of troublesome Traits like Anticipation or Taunt to open up the way for your other monsters. Update Released is a 0 CD AOE debuff removal, which makes debuffs largely ineffective versus your team, especially when combined with Ingenica's Tough. Stress Test applies Double Damage and Artifact Hater to its target, then removes all of its debuffs - the order is undesirable and Nanovirus will block the Double Damage and Artifact Hater, so be careful. Still, it will make your attacker hit hard and remove pesky debuffs from it. Lastly, Personality Confusion gives Ingenica another Trait Disable, this time a single target one to nail Dodge Area monsters, or you can simply use it to answer the enemy when they use debuff removal to get rid of the effects of My Favorite Trait.
3 Team Speed with Team Life Mutations is a standard on supports. However, Ingenica is a fast monster and thus will likely move before your attacker with just one Speed Rune, which not only makes sense for buffing them with Stress Test, but also for Trait Disabling a troublesome enemy like a Taunter just before your attacker moves to pummel the main target. That Speed Rune will have a Life Mutation, since that makes the greatest difference.

Countering Ingenica: Ingenica has two Trait Disables, so you can bring at least two debuff removals to answer her. Also, she has no deny effects or debuffs besides Trait Disable, making her very passive on her own. For more Counter options, check out this article.
