    Esper 3* Battle Description

    1) Main setup here will focus on based setup that is Mage Cover Tank, Provoke Tank and 3 units. For Mage Cover we will use Mystea (pick Basch if you have him), for Provoke tank it depends whether you want to use evade tank or regular tank... for Evade Tank the easiest to build on global is Chizuru, for other tank best pick would be Wilhelm, then Cagnazzo/Veritas of Earth. Since future esper battles and 10man trials will focus on evade tanks anyway I will pick Chizuru here. Other 3 slots will be described later on.

    - Mystea ( Build: http://ffbeequip.lyrgard.fr/links/pTd3ZX ) - Her main job is to eat all AoE Fire attacks, they can literaly obliberate your party if you are not careful, also its worth mentioning Ifrit is debuffing your party with 100% fire resistance imperil so you need to be able to build 200% fire resistance (be it equips alone or equip + buffs)...If you are good with elemental gear then try to reach that without using Ifrit because he will be useful for your DPS.
    - Chizuru ( Build: http://ffbeequip.lyrgard.fr/links/CKySjb ) - Her main job is to be a provoker and eat all Ifrit strong attacks, what you need to know here is that Ifrit have only ST attacks so together will Mystea this pair will nullify all damage (meaning you wont need to buff your own def/spr/mitigation which give you 1 more slot for dps). Why Chizuru is so wonderful here ? 40% innate evade + assasin vest and Kiyomori/Lucky Bangle (if you have it) makes her easily build around evade without worrying about Ring of the Lucii ring... all other evade TMR gears are from 4* or 3* units which should be available for you.
    - Onion Knight (your own or friend one - 25lvl LB is required here) - this unit is a game changer here... first he give 70% fire resistance on his Splendor of Water, next his LB is currently best DEF breaker in game (-74% = 285% more damage ) and more his LB also buffs ATK by 105% which makes putting buffer irrelevant in this battle.
    - 2x DPS - These dps'ers can be any dps'ers but my personal recommendations are :
    - whales : Fryevia / Kunshira / Tidus (with ice weapon) / A2
    - f2p: Agrias / Zidane / Lara Croft / any other chainable 2 units that can be equipped with Ice weapon or have Ice attack.

    Proposition of Esper pairing:
    Mystea -> Odin (for access to fingersnap)
    Chizuru -> Golem
    DPS #1 -> Ifrit
    DPS #2 -> Shiva

    [Turn 1]
    Mystea -> AoE cover
    Chizuru -> Provoke (from Golem)
    OK -> Splendor of Water
    2x DPS -> Deal Damage.

    [Turn 2 & 3]
    Mystea & Chizuru -> auto attack (to build LB for OK)
    OK -> Splendor of Water or LB
    2x DPS -> Chain​
    This is whole rotation... in between use your DPS to summon Shiva for mission clear.
    Esper 3* Solo
    It is possible to clear this unit solo, to do this you need to build both 100% evade and either 100% fire resistance (like Noctis) or use Fire Veritas who absors fire damage...

    Example build for Noctis: http://ffbeequip.lyrgard.fr/links/k5AoMW

    I know it's an old post, but bump xD i don't like at all that grid map, i rather think the one with the same model of the actual game is much more intuitive.

    Nonetheless, do you end up with 48 unused points?? Did the tree you posted, and still have those points remaining.

    Thanks in advanced for the feedback.

    Something like that, you can spent them on anything but wont see any progress in any stats, Its also not enough to reach Fira.

    Same here. I really hoped they would give us free reset with 3* but guess not. :/

    Haven't use any free reset so i could use it this time but only finish beast killer + , ifrit lvl was 14/60 (very costly to up lvl for him).

    Thanks for the update! So with 3* espers, you'll only have enough sp for one quadrant basically? Or is it just that ifrit generally earns very little sp overall?

    The killers for ifrit are an obvious choice, but I'm curious about siren, no idea what to go for sp wise :/

    If you are set with supports (Roy/Ramza/Lunera or plans for future Nichol) then ST + camouflage.

    Love the new format, very fancy!

    I used my free grid reset on Ifrit to be able to work towards those Killer+ skills.

    Beast Killer+ should be a must.

    But how about those ST Reflection Boost ?

    Other question...does Killer (50%) and Killer+ (75%) from Espers stack (50+75=125% ??) ?
