I'm talking about the "much more" damage certain characters will unlock at level 99.

So what's better? Much more [element] damage? Much more [weapon] damage? Much more damage with [ability school] abilities? Or much more elemental weakness damage?

Too many to list, but the general concensus is:

(Under soft cap)
+XX% MAG/ATK RMs (at least 10%)

(Over softcap)
+30% PHY damage with X Weapon
+30% Elemental DMG
+40% Ability type DMG
+30% Weakness DMG (aka Tyro's Lv99 RM)

In what order though? :/

Doesn't really matter as it will all depend on your relics and party setups. But getting Cloud's RM4 is a good start since he already has one of the best RMs in the game in 'Mako Might', which you will need in order to get his +30% PHY Damage with Sword RM (Truthseeker) anyway.

imo:

1) Tyro (30% up against any weakness, quite variable!)
2) Cloud 30% more damage with sword (most fighters use swords)
3-21) Whatever you use or need most between +fire damage or +black magic or whatever.

Just know, to me, you're better late than never again.

It's annoying that there's no 40% dmg RM for proper mages. But, despite their descriptions, Matoya and Shantotto Lv99 RMs apply not just to abilities, but to anything classified as BLK, which includes some, but not all, SBs.

IIRC +30% weapon or elemental damage are equivalent if you always deal physical damage wielding that weapon or always deal that element.

+40% school is ideal if you don't rely on SBs for damage, since they're school-less.

+30% weakness damage apparently works in a different part of the formula, so it will be more effective if you're already using element-boosting equipment. Boosts my Basch from 30k/hit to 35k on his final BSB vs Ruby Dragon.
Odd.

Some Soul Breaks are coded as Ability Schools. For example Zidane OSB is thief so its effected by the +40% RM even though it didn't say it.

Yeah depends on what the legend dive of the character already has, and what equipment they are wearing. They do roughly equate out to be the same though.

Also mentionable is thunder gods might. If you have no other sources of quick/instant cast then it improves dps output as well as sb generation by about 50%. (Gets in 9 attacks compared to usual 6 attacks in 21-22 seconds)
If you run ramza usb, noctis ssb, relm/aphmau usb, chains, usbs with qc cycles then tgm loses value
