    Hi there,

    I have several units that are ready, or able to become 7*'s. I'm looking to the community for some guidance on which ones I should awaken first. (I'd love to awaken them all, but I'm currently sitting on just enough to awaken 1) ::cry::

    If you could mark down the top 3, I will work on getting them up to 7*.

    As always, I appreciate your time, aid and assistance!

    Units are listed in the spoiler section of my signature, and my current 7*'s have been updated to reflect what I have as of today.

    Appreciate yah bunches!

    Given the 7* units you have listed, I'd put Zoidberg and Beatrix at the top of the list. You've got everything covered already, and that changes the dynamic from 'need' to 'convenience.' But you're a bit thin on breakers and buffers, so a bit of flexibility would do you well.

    Just my two cents.

    Thank you so much for posting, yeah. I have a good team for fighting the storyline. But it's horrible for Chaining, and for breaking.

    Awakened Rain because you don't seem to have a magic tank. The others I don't have a opinion.

    P.S. I had the same doubt of you, but two weeks ago I finally awakened all of my units lol

    Congratulations on awakening all of your 7*'s. I will get there, but right now it's a gil thing. God Father is sitting at almost 20 million, and I am at 4. LOL He keeps getting the Gil tickets for the 500k Snapper. Lucky man.

    He has 7* WKN, he can skip A.Rain because of that and focus on either another chainer DPS, a healer or a breaker.

    Overall, OP has done a good job covering roles at 7* despite resource limitations, and I think he deserves a solid "good job" for playing strategically there. From here, it's all about the roles you may need... I don't see a 7* Healer or Breaker yet (Ayaka and Beatrix), but Ayaka feels very limiting, and you've been able to do fine without he so far, so ignore her for now.

    Beatrix stands out to me as she is able to chain and pair well with your Sephiroth, plus she can also be a solid breaker for you should you choose to enhance her, and I think you should given your unit roster.

    Zarg is amazing, so I will mention him. He, too, will require full enhancements, and you already have MS Nichol. However, he is a stellar unit after enhancements.

    Oh okay. WKN is good? I always considered him mediocre.

    Arain with his tmr has stop immunity wkn has charm immunity, arain can also 3 round stop immune party, but cannot remove it. If stop is the problem 7* arain or 7* ayaka is the answer as ayaka is immune and can remove and if memory serves protect against it? But being he does have wkn, Beatrix with enhancements, specially since story event cryst farming, would be the way to go. Sadly if he only has enough gil for one 7*, even if has the required enhancement crysts , might not have the gil to enhance her :-s

    He's got LM Fina and Folka. You kind of have to highlight and scroll his signature to see them.

    Yeah, he's kind if okay. ::ink::

    Seriously though, his tankiness is top notch. Oodles of hp, self heals, plus chain.

    Taking another look, you need chainers too. Fryevia, A. Fryevia, and Tifa are all good DR chainers, but have no elements in common with each other or the DR chainers you already have, with the possible exception of Reagan. Reagan has no innate element, so if you slap an elemental weapon on him, you could do it.

    Water from Tidus's TMR would work with Tifa. Excalibur or Excalibur II would provide holy for A. Fry. Ice is a bit trickier, but there's an ice katana I think, on a butler dude from Madame's Manor. I forget his name, and searching for it on mobile is a bit of a pain. Anyway, that would let you hit high chain mods with regular Fryevia, but you'd need to enhance her to do it.

    Good point on the text size, I will fix it. Thanks for all the information. I tend to try and get friends who I can chain with. :) But self sufficient is always good. Love this Community!

    WKN is a crazy tough tank. Unless Stop is an issue, as mentioned by others, I personally prefer WKN over A.Rain. Imo, he is better than A.Rain in general cases.

    If you want to go for Zarg, you may want to look into LB stuffs for him as well.

    As for chainers, I wouldn't worry too much since you have both Seph and PG.Lasswell. Once their enhancement hit, they will jump to the front line easily. Seph's should be close now, many be 2-3 months. Lasswell will be a bit longer, but enhanced Seph should be fine until then. I won't recommend any other chainers (except Beatrix) from the rest of your options since most of them are stuck chaining families with questionable future (including DR since new units are released under AT family these days).

    How many Glad do you have ? If you have 3 or 4, you may want to consider get them up as dual-Glad is one solid strategy for many difficult trials.

    Jiraiya is another option you may want to look into. He is not a main dmg dealer, but more like a support unit who can chain. He also has AoE Mirage which is a very strong ability.

    While 7*Healer is not a must have if you have Ayaka. I think if you have extra resources, getting one up for extra survivability is not a bad idea either. Ayaka at 7* is also a very strong MP battery (her LB) and can spam Dedication+2 for some extra LS too.

    To summarize, my opinion may sound a little odd, but I would say, Beatrix, Ayaka, Zarg, Gladiolus, and Jiraiya.

    Thank you AA25. I have 2 Glad's. I will see what I can do. The feedback today is great and there are quite a few overlapping thoughts, which will help me make up my mind quicker! :) (very happy Angel guy)

    If you have 2, another option is chaining in-house (say, Seph and Lasswell) and borrow friend's Glad (I have him at 7*).

    This is certainly true, and I would steer anyone away from using a UoC on them, but these are units that he already has the requisite copies of. He just has to prioritize making them 7* due to gil costs, and is asking who should come first.

    With that in mind, I don't think it's a bad idea at all to put a DR chainer or two on the list. Having some flexibility with the current meta will still be nice. I spent all my lapis (successfully) chasing tanks, healers, and personal favorites, and haven't had the time to build up the UoC's to nab Akstar. I'll bet there are a bunch of people like me who will be stuck with the DR meta for a while, especially if they're not here on the forum to learn about the AT meta.
