MU Assets/Flaw

#1NaesakiPosted 4/8/2013 3:01:40 AM
I have looked at past threads but I've not really seen anyone ask this

But if I wanted my MU to be a jack of all trades, what would I want my asset/flaws to be? Or am I best deciding on a focus?

Jack of all trades?

Then you can't go wrong with speed+ luck-

speed+ and luck- huh?

i assume it spreads the stats out quite nicely?

HP: 80
Str: 39
Mag: 39
Skl: 42
Spd: 44
Lck: 44
Def: 40
Res: 40

As a Grandmaster...

Try +HP/-Luck.

As a Grandmaster, the stats spread out to:
HP: 80
Str: 40
Mag: 40
Skl: 40
Spd: 40
Lck: 44
Def: 42
Res: 42

Add 10 to those (accept HP) when Limit Break comes out.

I believe it's a good idea to keep as many things rounded out as possible, since I think the game tends to round down for calculations

Ignis for example, with a str/mag of 39 would boost by 19 points, but having str/mag be 40 will boost by 20 points.

I regret taking luck as a flaw since the 39 str/mag not only look really weird in a capped character but makes ignis slightly less effective :(

It's mostly my aesthetic OCD though.

Taking luck as an asset is quite useful if you plan on using Armsthrift, having MU's Luck cap at 48, and at 50 with the all stats+2 skill.

Unless you plan to use the limit breaker, then nvm about using Luck as an asset.

There are a few setups you can do for a jack of all trades. btw, I'm only listing the negative mods, as all other mods will be either neutral or positive

LUK/HP (-1 DEF and RES)

All of those will have STR and MAG balanced out, while giving boosts to other stats (and no negative SPD mod).

Personally, I prefer MAG/RES, since 39 RES as a Grandmaster is still decent, and I get +1 SPD and +3 MAG. Also, this makes MU's MAG and STR growths at 55% as a Grandmaster, which is pretty nice.

i am quite tempted by either HP+ / -Luck or Luck + / HP-

I'm wondering is +SKL/-MAG a decent set for a phhysical MU?
