    Lakshmi
    [​IMG]
    1. Basic Information
      • Primary Stats : Spr, Mp
      • Assigned Unit Role : Healer, Support
      • Color of Megacite : -
      • Region : Goronoa ( 8th Island )
      • Usage : 1* AoE 50% heal. / 2* AoE 75% heal.

    2. Esper Stats
    3. How to Obtain
      Before you will be able to unlock location with Lakshmi, you are required to clear Rotten Shrine story part, after that you can follow this.
      Lakshmi can be obtained in "Lordless Castle Interior", to unlock Lordless Castle Interior on map you need to :
      [​IMG]
      [​IMG]
      • Go to the Duggles Village and speak with person marked on map #1
      • Next you need to go to Underworld Gaberada, then you need to enter to room marked on map #2 and speak with person inside (top right part of room).
      • After this you should get Lordless Castle Interior unlocked on map.

    4. Notable skillset on Lakshmi Skill Grid
      • [​IMG] Demonic Whisper - Active skill that replenish 30 mp for one Ally during next 3 turns (10 mp/turn).
      • [​IMG] Libra - Active skill that displays info about one enemy.
      • [​IMG] Assuring Protection - Active skill that cast AoE protection from Confusion for 3 turns.
      • [​IMG] Waking Protection - Active skill that cast AoE protection from Paralyze for 3 turns.
      • [​IMG] Softening Protection - Active skill that cast AoE protection from Petrification for 3 turns.
      • [​IMG] Stona - Active skill that cure Petrify to Single Target Ally.
      • [​IMG] Auto-Regen - Passive ability that recover your hp each turn by 120hp + 0.6x
      • [​IMG] Cura - Active skill that heals 400hp + 3x too your party.

      Unfortunately Lakshmi Grid is made such a way its impossible to get all these skills, taking Whisper and Protection takes priority, after this stats wisely taking Cura and Auto Regen would be best and it perfectly fits with points distribution, [Stona itself is useful but since we will get Petrify Protection we dont need to heal that status + in worst case there are units like Refia or Rikku in future which will helps healing Petrify.
      Stona itself is useful but since we will get Petrify Protection we dont need to heal that status, not only that but we already have Aileen who can provide that Petrify Protection but also we will soon get Rikku that have AoE heal + poison/petrify/silence heal, thus making Stona obsolete ability. On heavy content just use items like Ribbon or units with innate immunity.

    5. Suggested Skill Grid Expansion
      This suggested skill tree was prepared while following these rules :
      • First priority is set on skills
      • Second priority is set on main stats
      • Each 100 stats give your unit additional 1 so maxing stat that wont let your Esper pass another 100x is worthless


      Notice, gumi made a typo. Auto-shell on skill grid is in reality an Auto-Regen passive.
      [​IMG]

      This ends with these modifiers to your unit ( values in brackets display additional bonus from grid ):

    Mediguard is 50+0.1x when guarding so its too low and too conditional to be considered good.

    Thanks for the guide. If I use Tilith as healer is she worth using or Carbuncle? And if she is better, wouldn't Stona be on her more useful as that's the only status Tilith can't cure. Protection seems kinda obsolete with her heal/cure abilities. Or am I missing something.

    building Esper under 1 unit is stupid :P
    I dont see a reason to take stona, first its on bad route (no stats bonus there), second one If you have protection you dont need it, next there are supports like Ling and incoming Rikku who can AoE recover from Petrify so I dont see why I would want to waste X points to get ST that you can also take in form of TM Materia.

    As for your question pair them -> support + Lakshmi and healer + carbuncle.

    Thanks. Then ill take your route. Thought about it that way. Carbuncle is great for Refia and Y'Shtola to get some element resistance castings. And Lakshmi with Stona would have completed Tilith healing capabilities.

    But I think it still better than Banish & Libra. So this mine:

    Banish and Libra are at least usable, like getting boss data for its weakness or checking hp when trying to use Esper or using Banish for light damage for missions without changing units... while Mediguard literally heals you like 60-100 hp when you defend... it doesnt have any impact on battle.

    Lets just say her Skils and Grid are broken. Really too bad. Had hoped she'd be a bit better and not an Titan clone. We need better Espers like Odin

    If only Demonic Whisper was a passive, then it would be so OP for Tilith. But, I guess it's unnecessary since her mp regen is good enough to regen to full every turn.
