Miriel or Ricken?

For those that have played so far, who do you find better between Miriel and Ricken?

Usually, I focus on leveling up one mage, but I don't know if perhaps I should just raise both or just one of them.

I don't like either of them.

I'm raising both, but they're both pretty terrible compared to MU, if you go the Magic route on him. My MU is a beast.

From what i've heard Miriel is the better unit, but don't take my word for it.

I'm gonna use both of them since I like mages.

Ricken's Spd is AWFUL. He has higher Lck and Def than Miriel, but these are not terribly important stats for a mage.

The main difference is Miriel has higher speed, Ricken has better HP/DEF. So Miriel's better at killing enemies and but Ricken is usually(the lower speed can actually make him die easier)more survivable.

Also Miriels re-class options are all magic users(Dark Mage,Troubador) whereas Ricken has Archer and Cavalier. I'd usually go for Miriel over Ricken.

Isn't the difference between him and Miriel just 2 base speed and a 10% growth?

Practically beaten the game trust me go Mirel RIcken sucks... Mirel had excellent growths in all her offensive areas and her magic stat was beastly. Ricken just sucked. also its worth noteing Mirels Son has great potenial to be beast and there is 2 more mages IIRC. both are dark mages (you can reclass them and DM can use regular spells anyways)

Both are...meh. I'm using both to get Loran's sidequest, then benching them

I usually use Miriel as a Dark Knight, the bonus defense and Life taker/Slow burn fixes her fragility.
