    So I can gear up my Ang with FD for around 1.6k ATK . My friend who has the same gear as mine can get his Ang to around 2.5k ATK.

    Is it worth it to get His bow? or is better sticking with FD?

    Should be pretty close damage wise i would probably prefer the bow build as it boosts his lb, if you could get his atk with FD closer to 2k then it would be better damage wise but will require a whale build,

    Bow build lb will have 30% more lb damage so if you using him for his lb then id go with the bow otherwise you should be good with fd

    This is what i have right now :


    Ang 7★
    Right hand: Fixed Dice ATK+1
    Head: Prishe's Hairpin HP+10%, MP+10%, ATK+45
    Body: Luneth's Clothes ATK+45, DEF+1, SPR+1
    Accessory 1: Marshal Glove ATK+40
    Accessory 2: Marshal Glove ATK+40
    Materia 1: Fortitude and Vigor ATK+40%
    Materia 2: Adventurer V ATK+40%, DEF+40%, MAG+40%, SPR+40%
    Materia 3: Buster Style
    Materia 4: Quick Assault ATK+30%
    Esper: Odin HP+77, MP+61, ATK+85, DEF+70, MAG+48, SPR+50
    Total: HP:7512, MP:486, ATK:1525, DEF:393, MAG:337, SPR:395

    Now if i change this to bow


    Ang 7★
    Right hand: Sun Breaker ATK+145
    Head: Prishe's Hairpin HP+10%, MP+10%, ATK+45
    Body: Luneth's Clothes ATK+45, DEF+1, SPR+1
    Accessory 1: Marshal Glove ATK+40
    Accessory 2: Marshal Glove ATK+40
    Materia 1: Fortitude and Vigor ATK+40%
    Materia 2: Adventurer V ATK+40%, DEF+40%, MAG+40%, SPR+40%
    Materia 3: Buster Style
    Materia 4: Quick Assault ATK+30%
    Esper: Odin HP+77, MP+61, ATK+85, DEF+70, MAG+48, SPR+50
    Total: HP:7512, MP:486, ATK:2452, DEF:577, MAG:441, SPR:567

    If i went with Bow, it might be a good thing to chase after his STMR, especially since i have 1 Chow and 1 Yun respectively.

    I believe he’s actually better with his bow. Ffbeequip.com doesn’t have his lb in yet but it already has his regular attack doing more damage than FD so it should be even more so because of the extra killers and lb damage. Plus you can get much better IW bonuses with a bow.

    Even if Sun Breaker and Fixed dice are close in damage, I still think it's generally better to use Sun Breaker. The reasoning is that with the bow, you'll have higher minimums and lower maximums. This is preferred to me. Although I understand how some people would prefer higher maximums and lower minimums. Anyways, a vote for sun breaker here.

    This is where I'm at as well. I personally would prefer the more consistent damage. Never really been a big fan of FD in general

    Bow = 30% LB damage (which is what Ang likes) and Bird/Dragon Killer, which is nice when it procs.

    Depends, his STMR will only really be great for him. How many Ang do you have?

    Yep unless you have a whale fixed dice build the bow build will nearly always be better especially for his lb, if you had up at around 1900 atk fd then it might be debatable im not sure on the numbers
