Nexon Games

Viessa is one of the thirteen playable characters in The First Descendant. She's a Debuffer and can harness water to summon blizzards and ice beams to freeze everything in her path. 

If you're planning to play as Viessa in the upcoming open beta, you have come to the right place. This guide covers everything you need to know about Viessa in The First Descendant. 

Viessa's Backstory in The First Descendant 


Viessa is a loner who was forced to work as a laborer in Snowfield of Dawn after losing her gang to the Albion Posse. Bad luck seemed to follow her there as well as an excavation incident trampled everyone under the snow except her. While she was rescued, the incident gave  ice abilities and led her down the path to becoming a Descendant. 

Viessa's Skills in The First Descendant 

Viessa is a Debuffer who deals AOE and CC ice damage to enemies. She can also inflict a debuff called Ice Shackle that hinders enemies' mobility.

Her active skills include: 

  • Frost Fog: Increases Running Speed and Shield and creates Ice Sheets on the ground where Viessa stands. When enemies come into contact with these Ice Sheets, they are inflicted with Ice Shackle.
  • Ice Wave: Releases an arc of cold air in front, inflicting damage and Ice Shackle.
  • Blizzard: Creates a snowstorm that explodes over time, inflicting damage and Ice Shackle on enemies caught within.

Her passive skills include: 

  • Ice Sphere: Condenses moisture in the atmosphere around the nucleus circling around the body, lowering the temperature.
  • Ice Beam: Fires an exploding Ice Beam, inflicting damage in the area around enemies and inflicting Ice Shackle.

Will Viessa be Playable in The First Descendant Open Beta?

Viessa should be one of the playable characters in the upcoming First Descendant Open Beta. If you didn't know, she was one of the three starting characters in the previous beta, so there's no reason why she shouldn't be in the upcoming one. However, Nexon Games hasn't officially revealed anything, so don't forget to check back later for an update.
