    Hi everyone,

    I have a question for those of you who are a bit familiar with what comes next in GL, and mostly trials.

    In terms of equipment for physical tanks I can focus more on getting :
    - high stats stuff, like Wilhelm/Gladiolus shield, Ozetta's armor, more patriotic recall, etc, or
    - evade stuff.

    What do you think would be more useful for upcoming trials? Current content is cleared.

    Also I have WoL and Wilhelm so please consider both cover and provoke roles.

    Thanks

    Having at least one 100% evasion gear for let's say WoL will make your life easier in some fights. But it can be done without it, so.... dunno, your decision to make.

    Depends on the fight. On Malboro I had no problem with Wilhelm provoking with good gear. Full health every turn with Lunera as only buff/healer. Used Yan for the debuff resist. Only problems i had was messing up rotations and him getting devoured.

    Switched him out for 100% evade noctis with fish+1. just rotated noctis between provoke and break spr, didnt worry about the def debuff, so freed up a turn for yan to do something else between damage mitigation and ailment resist (jade moon pendant).

    Don't have enough for an evade WoL, haven't tried cover evade yet.

    I think in future trials, while evade may work some, it won't make things trivial like, say, gilgamesh.

    If you have the gears to make a 100% evade tank then.... evasion

    Yes I can reach 100% evasion for WoL in a couple of weeks if I choose to focus on this. I'm just concerned there might be hits with accuracy or similar stuff which make evasion less relevant in the future.

    So far, nope. And evasion gear can always find some use, be it on normal team on your DPS on in arena.

    I moogled 2 RoL, farmed 1 sazh tmr (I pulled second noctis only a month after I finished farming sazh) and 4 shine tmrs and moogled my basch. No regrets, I can do every character a 100% evade provoke now if I want to and some fights have become really easy thanks to this.

    I never considered evasion builds myself as Ihave 0 Noctis. Or Sazh.
    However I didn't run into any hardcore trouble cleairng all currently available trial content.
