    I made it all the way through the Basch banner pulling all tickets and lapis and never pulled him. Now during the Free pulls I have gotten 2 of him. I am still working on leveling up the first and assume the second is just going to sit twiddling.

    Is there any need for 2 Basch's in a party?

    mega hard content... one Bash dies, second one is ready even without re-rise... or if boss does both magic and physical and you don't wanna chance it even for a few random attacks

    The backup unit is definitely an option for difficult content. Just remember though only one AOE protection will work at a time. So you couldn't use one to block physical and one to block magic. The other one would literally be just waiting for the other to die unless providing some other support features.

    You can't run both physical and magic cover in the same turn though. The second overwrites the first if I recall correctly from the Mystea thread I was reading earlier this week.

    I suppose eventually yes but I thought that I heard that his 7* hasn't even been released in JP yet so way far away here :)

    You can keep one as AoE cover and make the second a provoke tank with Golem and plushie. This way you'll be ready for two tanks strategies even without Wilhelm or WKN.

    That is true. But for some bossess, they alternate physical/magical attacks on each turn. Having two units with covers (one physical, one magical) can be useful. Additionally, if you bought Basch's 50% provoke item from King Mog and also put Golem's Provoke on the unit, you now have a great provoke tank as Basch1 and a great magic tank as Bash2.

    This won't work in 10mans, though.

    Okay, thing I didn't see in the thread about why having 2 in the same team. You can also gear one for SPR and the other for DEF. This way, both the cover and the provoke tank are equipped to do well, and can swap any time you need them to.

    Global =/= JP

    It seems like a decent idea, do you really want to gear 2 of them? I guess you could try and have 1 physically defensive and 1 magically delicious, and see if you can use their kit and mechanics to coordinate properly? Hard to say. I don't even have 1 good tank. WoL is only at 6k HP. Lack the TMRs can't imagine farming double.

    If you have no bards at all, you can use second Basch for defensive buff, give him Pod and caveman’s TMR and make use of TDH attackers by imbuing element, but gah, that’s what everyone could do.
    Just wait for 7*

    I wish I had been playing long enough to be able to have a Pod... I do have Roy though so am okay on that account.

    Just bench him then. Basically you can give usable items like Rikku’s Pouch and Pod / Caveman (forgot name) tmr and give unit more usable skills for the rotation.
    But yeah, just bench him then.
