    Since a lot of the questions are quiete similar I wanted to pool some info sources for newer players and maybe answer some of the questions.

    Unit lists gl:
    https://www.reddit.com/r/FFBraveExvius/wiki/units/global
    https://exviuswiki.com/Unit_List

    Unit list jp:
    https://www.reddit.com/r/FFBraveExvius/wiki/units

    Should I use X and is it a good unit?
    Probably the most common question. If you like X just use him or her. Else you can look at the unit lists and check the max rarity to get a good impression of how strong the units you have can actually become later on.

    You can also check the jp list if you are playing global to see how futureproof the units you want to use are.

    Should I use X over Y?
    The answer highly depends on two things. Rarity and role. When in doubt chose the unit with the higher rarity. If the units have the same rarity think about who is better fitted for a role.

    For example if you are looking for a good healer and you have Cecil and Lenna. While Cecil has Cura healing isn't his primary job and he can't equip much gear which gives spirit. Lenna on the other hand comes with a wide selection of healing and curative skills. She can remove almost every debuff with Esuna. Furthermore she can equip a lot of gear which gives more spirit. Also her limit break is a heal and buff.

    Who is currently the best [role] in gl/jp?
    This is a much discussed and somewhat opinionated question on both version. Especially when new units are released or olds are changed. There are some sources for unit rankings, but please take them with a grain of salt since they are opionated and change quiete often.

    I would like to conclude my first attempt to write a guide with the thing that is most important to me when it comes to games. Always remember that games are ment to be and enjoyed and have fun.

    Charlotte is a good tank, but Cecil is better (honestly, I prefer Charlotte because I love her design <3 ::kefka:: )

    You can use both of them. Cecil being Tank/Support/Healer while Charlotte being Pure Tank/Breaker.

    This is a little late but my team consists of 5* fina, 5* firon, 5* elza with tablet of ruin, 6* Cecil, and 6* deltia. Other 6* capable units I have are exdeath and garland. Should I switch them out with anyone?

    Not fixed
    You can switch firion with exdeath for a more balanced team, but your elza is your main DPS, you wont need garland for now, if you have doublehand materia TM from Bartz if im not mistaken. Garland is quite strong with that TM

    Hi unfortunately the guy offering advice on this thread no longer around so I will try to assist.

    You are missing a tank so you will to use Rain in that capacity until u get a better one. Attach golem Esper to him.
    For your healer please use Santa Roselia(make 6*).
    The rest of ur units will be
    D Fina - make 6*
    Chiz - she can b made to 6*
    Mercedes - also can b made to 6*

    Good Luck

    Hey guys,

    I'd appreciate some help on my team.
    Currently I'm running Rain, Warrior of Light, Arc, Refia and Cloud of Darkness. All are 5 star max level. I recently pulled Luka, Santa Roselia, 5* Ramza and some more decent units. So my questions are:
    1. Should I replace Warrior of Light with Cecil or Charlotte?
    2. Refia/Luka/Santa Roselia - who wins here and would benefit my team? I like Refia but Luka looks really nice too.
    3. My biggest problem: Rain. Must be replaced. Who should I take in instead of him, chizuru or Ramza? I'm worried if I take in Ramza I won't have enough damage.

    Last question:
    I collected enough stuff to awaken either Refia or CoD to 6 star. Which would be better for me? Better support/revive or better support/damage? I can't insta-level them to 100 but I can get them to a decent level fast enough. Or should I save the stuff and awaken one of the new team members?

    I'm f2p, so awakening to 6 star isn't that easy for me. Please consider :)

    Thanks alot in advance!

    Hi All,

    I am looking at setting up 2 teams, physical and mage and am unsure of how to setup (mostly physical side) as well as what TMR I should farm for. I have only been playing since Thanksgiving and fully F2P. Just now grasping farming events (really should have grasped that sooner).

    Units so far (I have gotten decently lucky with some rainbows). I have been concentrating on awakening mage team first as I enjoy arena, but it seems for story that physical teams may be the better route to go (just finished the guardian in Dirnado).

    I am thinking that the Mage team would be ExDeath x2, Dark Fina, WKN, and then for healer I am torn, Luka is the best healer I have, but Lenna has a Mag increase on her LB, not sure if it stacks with Mag increase from WKN though.

    Physical team I am at a loss, Chiz makes up my core, thinking maybe Fina for Cheer but other than that I am open to suggestions. Looking for synergy for the most part.

    Thanks.

    Oh and Espers currently are Golem, Ifirit, Shiva, Ramuh, and Siren (all around lvl 20 * though)
