    I would like to promote using Ling as provoke evade tank against Diablos 3*.
    Why is she so valuable?
    -She has innate 40% evade straight from the bat. (Elusive moves) Therefore it should be rather possible even for f2p player to perhaps gear her full evade in the case they pulled her.
    I geared her with safety bit for diablos, calamity border and there was still a slot free for maybe bushido or other.
    -She has resistance to sleep, paralyse, confuse, and petrify which is almost like a ribbon. Since she is evade geared, other ailments didnt matter to me. (cleansing flames)
    -She can dispel ailments from the party. Since she is resistant herself, she can effortlessly cure the party. (dance of life)
    -She has mass raise (dance of rebirth) which came very handy to enable healer to cast w-reraise or do other stuff. (jade pendant)
    -She can aoe break either the offense or defense with the standard 45% which is enough for me but i didnt really used it against diablos.
    -She has refresh which is rather rare for a 4* base.
    -And finally she has hightide and entrust which i didnt need against diablos but still a great point for her.

    All in all, the fight was very controllable with her help.
    I used Ayaka as healer, two own Lilas with friend Lila and finally Basch as mag tank 205% dork resistance.
    Ayaka took care of the stop if ever used.
    You should not be afraid if units die except for tanks.
    (Ling and Basch which died here and there but it wasnt a issue somehow since there was always a way to stabilize the defense and Lilas were left dead until tanks properly stable)
    Either dispel or stop didnt matter much.
    Sorry for lazy explanation since i am not that good at explaining or in english but the general hint should be spotlighted i hope.
    Happy/lucky pulling, wiping and clearing the trial.

    Ling has innate 75% camouflage, do you need more than 100% provoke to actually make her 100% provoke?

    I didn't know you need "dork resistance" ::ink::

    Love this. Ling is one of my favorite unit... Sorry that I haven't been using her lately...

    No need. Provoke overrides camouflage

    Just tested this with my Ling in the earth shrine with raven's cape and 3/4 power of the sands (205% camouflage) and golem's provoke. I'd say she gets 70% targetted, so camouflage is fully ignored when provoke is up.

    Maybe nice to mention for less veteran players, that 100% provoke is better/needed (and worked 100+ turns for me, even when she is the 5th unit so you can bring her as a friend) i used the "equip l shield" and moogle plushie to get that.

    For dork resistance you need to kill lord Dorkula.
    He is a sucker (vampire) and a hidden boss.
    (And proud ancestor to the dorks) ::ink::

    Naaah, since many people started to name them names with dark in the name, believing that sounds stronger but actually just silly, i started to make fun of it.
    Like dork prince or lord of dorkness or farth maul or dork siff(ilis) or whatever.
    *(prepairing for shitstorm lol)

    I used 95% Evade MRamza. He took barely any hits.
    And then... Same as you. Lila just gave some love to Diabolos in the form of million punches and kicks.

    The best service for me was the mass raise since Ayaka could work on from there without to raise herself.
    EDIT: The most fun part was Lilas kicking diablos while he was already lying on the ground.
    Kicking him in the face and balls for wrecking the party in earlier try.
    Dear God, this was really satisfying.

    Since there is no real guide known here so far, I'l make one as simple possible.
    You need: Provoker with 100% evade and safety bits, 200% dark element magic resistance (note: it will do a lot helpful, if both also have status immunity, especially paralyze one, and stop, which the latter can be covered by Ayaka or Mystea ability, keep both status immunity and stop immunity up all the time). You also need healer with/and buffers with MP generators and attacker with demon killer and light element weapon. Depending your team up, if you can fill both MP generator and buffers in one unit, bring a chainer.

    Pretty much keep both tanks tanking, healer keep healing and buffing with status immunity, keep attacking while maintain your MP. as long as none got stopped or paralyzed (your tanks), things should do well enough to summon Carbuncle and to kill Diabolos wtih LB.

    Hopefully that help.
