battle team formation ?

#1plant08Posted 3/13/2010 5:39:20 AM

i just got to the point in chapter nine where u can choose your own battle team what im wondering is 1. what would be the best team and 2. who's best for each role

Fang can do over 1.500.000 dmg with Highwind so she's the best attacker, Hope has the highest magic so he's the best blaster, Vanille gets belladonna and cure wand so depending on the item she can be the best jammer and healer, Snow has 30.000 life with no items so he's the best defender and enhancer depends on your strategy. Fang gets the strong but short buffs which are useful but you need to time them better in order to recast them and not miss out on anything.

Lightning is all around good, Sazh depends on the weapons, early on he's the best enhancer but later on just being a good enhancer isn't enough and the rest of his stuff is quite unremarkable. Once you max the crystarium and all roles with everyone, i go for a Fang Hope Lightning party. Bahamut owns and Fang gets near 4000 attack so she's mainly how you kill stuff, Lightning does everything and has a nice 2200 on both attack and magic, Hope can do a bit of everything and even do attacker too with Ruin, his 3000ish magic is good for that.

al right kool thx for the quick response

The one I can definitely agree on is Fang. Once she surpasses Lightning, there is no reason to have anyone else as commando except you need her to play sentinel.

Lightning IMO is probably the "best" (or maybe "most balanced" is the better term) character thanks to being good at the three most used classes: Com, Rav and Med. She can be a better Com than even Fang when an enemy is resistant to Phy attacks as that's pretty much all Fang does

fang and light always get a spot in my active party. The rest rotate. I mostly use Hope and Vanille (best healers ultimately) and rarely Sazh and Snow. Fang can play sentinel acceptably so Snow is completely useless IMO, once she gets going also primarily because Sen is also rarely used save for a few encounters with really tough critters/bosses.

Sazh has only been good for having Haste very early but when my Hope gets it, His spot may be permanently gone.

To make Sazh useful i gave him his weapon that cuts his life for extra power, he was a hell of an attacker for a while :D. Even with a maxed out Total Eclipse of that gun's model now he's still way behind Fang's LoK and her 3900some attack lol.

damn, Dreiko, you know a lot about the game. You'll probably be our FFXIII grandmaster lol. So can I ask you this: I heard all the weapons in the game turn into a specific final weapon with specific stats for each character e.g both blazefire saber and gladius ultimately become the same weapon with fixed stats but after reading your posts I'm not sure anymore. Would this be true or false?
