    I had Balthier as a finisher already and I don't really use him. I still have yet to pull a Setzer so no Fixed Dice. Should I just let him rot on the bench until enhancements come?

    Bench him.
    GL Balthier > FV due to Balthier's 5x mod unlocks a 10x mod, while FV can only obtain 10x mod by magic counter (which, may I add, is stupid)
    His TMR is rather meh, too

    Actually you should care, he might have lower modifiers than balthier, but utility-wise his fire absorption is absolutely insane, and the ability to cast 30% damage mitigation is a nice bonus on top of that. That fire absorption helped me so much recently, for example recent ff12 event.. use him, remainder full bonus units. Upcoming tomb raider boss event seems to prefer fire res as well btw.

    In order words, you're telling him to keep a DPS as a fire-absorb tank...
    Gjob, bud. Not ironic

    Sometimes I geared him with 100% evade for trials for friends or just for fun to do weekly trials solo (Cerberus).
    Sometimes I used him in Raids but, well, there is no need if you have strong chainers.
    He has no Gil passives like ExAileen f.e.

    Well, to be fair, he does that splendidly. He has decent health and as long as the enemy uses enough fire and not too much elementless/other elemental attacks, he doesn’t even need healing. And being a finisher means he can solo stages much faster than most evade tank builds.

    True. Very true.
    No wonder there is a DV Dark Espers solo run ::think::

    Yes, and while you are at it. I'd take veritas of dark over orlandeau for that matter. Obsession over pure dps is not a always a good thing. I prefer the full picture/flexibility, even if that sometimes means a slight decrease in raw damage.

    Geh. I just like whatever's available and easy for me.
    ...And that attitude is what has kept me away from many, many trials. Need to get Bahamut or Aigaion soon

    The battle against Bahamut is very easy with a Garnet/Eiko friend summoning Bahamut as a finisher or a strong Zyrus with Draco Spike and finishing with dual Alterna. The two chainers can be a pair of Shantottos dual casting Tornado. Also, WoL can break SPR ::up::

    He can use Viking Axe and finish for Tidus. Has some utility with a AOE 20% damage shield. Not bad if you can spare a spot for a finisher.
