    I dont know what your acct is. Do you have DV + OK or OK x2? Dark Veritas can help with alot. He is the hardest hitting unit there is. If you have DV + OK, I have no experience using DV with OK. But you cant go wrong if your acct has DV + OK. Only problem with having DV is that he does not have DV right away, in fact you have to give me a TM to make him viable. So hopefully ur acct also has Zidane or Gilg.

    My current acc got : 1 Dv, 1 Onion, 1 Queen, Zidane, 2 cecil, 2 Victoria, 1 Firion , 1 Bartz, 1 Chizuru, 2 Miyuki, 2 Hayate, 1 chalotte, 1 Agrias, 1 Eru, 1 Soze, 1 Aria, 3 Desch , 1 Refia. I think chiruzu + Miyuki + Queen might work well with Onion. For Dv , Zidane + 2 cecil might work on him also. around 20k Lapis with story.
    Second acc : 2 Onions, aria, Desch, WoL nothing really good with tmr but still 30k lapis with story.

    I would keep both and wait for Noctis. If Noctis is great main whichever acct rolls him.

    I wish there was an update on when we'd be getting his royal derpness. I saw 7 notifications on GL and got excited for half a second when I realized Noctis wasn't a part of those updates.

    What @JChunks said !

    Imho, your first account is good as it is and . You got a full team ( i would run DV, OK, Refia, Cecil, Agrias even if i still don't know how DV + OK are together, i'll know once i lvl'd mine ! ) and awesome TMR to farm with DV, OK, Queen, Zidane, 2 cecil, Chizuru & 2 Hayate. :D

    It's supposedly a good support ( she has "Curaja" ) and decent attacker with a boosted "Barrage". She also come with a good TMR. ( +30% ATK & +20% HP )
    Nothing ground breaking if you have better units. :D

    As someone who uses OK and DV as his main attackers, I think they go quite well together. They can chain quite well together after you learn the proper timing and DV's debuffs are quite helpful to OK in general.

    My DV doesn't have DW yet, though. So I dunno how exactly the chaining will be afterwards. Also, just to be clear, I'm not saying OK + DV is better or worse than 2x OK. Just saying that I'm enjoying what DV brings to the table.

    Just started to delve into the JP version and have been rerolling to see what I could come away with in the beginning. I have had several rerolls, but I'm not sure who in the JP meta is someone I should shoot for like how people say that you should stop at Noctis, Gilgamesh, Chizuru, Lightning, Luneth in the GL. I was hoping to get Onion Knight on one of my rerolls, but I haven't quite gotten there yet with any of them.

    I do have some notable accounts which I feel like could be a decent start so far. Let me know what you think!

    JP 1: Tidus, DFina, Balth, Rikku, Charlotte, Firion, Zidane
    JP 2: Noctis, Queen, WoL, Arigas, Charlotte, Firion

    Based on the famitsu website, JP1 account seems to be more favorable with 3 5* bases, Rikku and Charlotte with Zidane's DW TMR thrown into that starter account. There are some other units like Firion on there too which I am reading improves with enhancement like Charlotte.

    But that Noctis account makes me pause for a moment.

    I will still keep on rolling but I am leaning towards keeping both JP1 and JP2 as potential accounts to play, but that is pending on the feedback I get!

    JP 1 without a doubt ! JP2 "just" have Noctis so it's not awesome as #1 is with Balthier, Tidus, Rikku, D.Fina + utilities like Zidane for DW TMR and Charlotte which is a good tank.

    Thank you for your quick reply. Though, I wonder if it is still pertinent to try and reroll for OK and DV like I keep on reading in general or just go with this one. Rikku I know is a great unit from what I'm reading, but she doesn't get her cure spell until 5*. I do have Lenna to tide me over but I will still need a 6* healer, right? Balth looks like he's a high unmitigated damage dealer and Tidus looks like he does AoE dmg/and buffing. I feel like it's pretty well rounded on that account, so I hope that this can carry me awhile in the game content.

    Tehni - just assume that you'll get all of your characters to max 6 star within a week, so the intermediate levels won't really matter much.
    During the weekend, with king mog 6* awakening mats and cactuar dunes, I'm often getting my entire team to 6* max in a few hours on a rerolled account.

    A lot of really decent healers are 4* base, so you'll likely pull them later. Until then you can use 6* Fina or some other healer, who should be able to lead you through a lot of the basic content.

    I'd agree that the Tidus account looks more promising for you.

    Just wanted to ask if Ashe (FF12) is any good? One of my favorite characters so curious if she's worth saving tickets for (in global)?

    According to the famitsu website, she's rated as a 12.0 where as there are a dozen or so listed above and below that rating. Her skills seem decent, but her MP cost for the skills are a bit high, which is why I'm guessing she is lower on the scale of unit rankings. Not sure where she is in terms of other units of the same sort of role. I can imagine her "Meditate" skill which is 5 turns x all allies + 45% MAG/SPR would help for a heavy mage team. She has other skills that seem to be helpful too like aoe esuna + 1 magical attack and aoe heal+ 10 hit magic attack, but again very mp costly.

    Here's a link to her skills.

    Thank you, I've been playing around with the Tidus account and trying to use the Mog event to grind out some Metal Gigantaurs. I'm also trying to pick up that gun for Balthier. Between both Tidus and Balth, it's actually really fun to play. With Rikku in the mix with a sufficient healer for now (Lenna... wait what am I saying, she only has Cure atm!! LIVING ON THE EDGE), Rikku's AOE phoenix down has been A LIFE SAVER (wait, there's a joke in here somewhere). I haven't bothered to level Lenna and put all my resources into Tidus first, Balth, Rikku, and D. Fina -- suffice it say, it's been very on-the-edge-of-my-seat playing when starting out in the beginning doing the grind event, lol.

    Holy crap, Nyx is SUPER OP. What a stud. I didn't bother to roll on his banner because knowing me, I'd come up with 7 of the 3-star unit Libertus. But DW Nyx is just amazing as a friend unit. Now I am like do a reroll for this guy?!

    Just as a side note, being on the JP version has really opened my eyes on what to look out for in GL when it later comes out. Rikku is so invaluable with her LB it's nuts. I have D. Fina on GL and JP, but comparatively she is taking longer to see any significant damage out of her as I've seen with Balth and Tidus so I'm not sure at this point (being only the 3rd stage of the main game because of mog event grinding) if I'd be willing to pick up her unit given the chance. But again, I am only in the beginning stages with her so my perspective may change. But holy cow... NYX.

    My Tidus 700+ atk with Ifrit ( for beast killer ) + Ramza "song+2" is sometimes taking like 60~70% off the behemoth boss from current event.
    Good enough to me ! :D

    Haha, I'm really enjoying Tidus in combination of Balth and Rikku atm given that this is my first time playing with those characters. It's much more interesting gameplay than my GL account but I know both will take time. I'm trying to just bite the bullet and build up this account since it seems to have a good foundation, but there will always be that itch to want reroll for something better. I already fell into the trap of using all my tickets and lapis after I realized how insane Nyx was after using him first hand and not just going by ranking. Though, I guess one could argue there is no better time to try and pull Nyx because he's currently the banner.
