General consensus for best SYN?

#1XetrevPosted 3/31/2012 1:57:22 AM
Don't want to level up loads of different monsters, so which is considered the best one overall?

Is Yakshini's Feral Link THAT good that I should just level him? Because I was going to do Lightning for my Rav but decided to stay with Cloudburst for the FL cuz it is just that awesome. But if I can get a -good- SYN then I'm thinking I can forgo Cloudburst for the better (and more versatile) Lightning.

Thanks.

Sazh from the DLC, Texteron (more cost effective but not as good), or purple chocobo


Generally speaking when leveled up the chocobos are the best.

the guidebook says purple chocobo is one of the best.

most of the chocobos seem to be some of the best in their categories

Everyone I talk to about the game swears by the Purple Chocobo, once fully leveled up and infused. PC can power-buff the entire group, and keep buffs going for a decent duration. Yakshini seems to be a good "second place" Synergist (honestly, I do NOT see the appeal... then again, mine isn't infused), and Sazh is a decent enough Synergist... but he's very slow to cast buffs, and usually doles out the protective buffs well before giving offensive buffs. However, he does have all the "En___" spells right off the bat, making him perfect for players who don't know about proper infusions yet (like me!).

PC it is. Anyone know where I can find a good build for it? Tried looking in sakurayule's forum post over on PS3 forums but not found anything.

I'm thinking of doing one with as many "auto-" abilities as I can to cut down on buff time, can someone who knows tell me if this is the best route?
