    Hello! Welcome

    So you have some choices here.

    Tank: WoL, Charlotte --> both have their uses. I prefer WoL because he has good offensive and defensive breaks, raise, and embolden

    Healer: Luka is pretty much it. But you'll need a new healer as she has been phased out. She did just get enhancements but still only have used her two or three times. Has a def/spr buff and AOE regen which both come in handy

    Support: Desch, Rikku, Ilias, Soleil... depending on the content they all can be useful. Soleil with her enhancements.
    Work on Rikkus LB.

    DPS: Ace, Vol, Enhanced Agrias
    I would probably go with Enhanced Agrias as she is easier to gear and can chain with orlandu friends.

    You can go with 2 DPS and 1 support or 2 support and 1 dps

    Thank you!
    Is Aria less good as a healer than luka?
    Prishe is not good enough even if she is base 5 star?
    I'll go with enhanced agrias and wol.
    In case of 2 dps would you advise to go with vol or ace?
    If one support would you agree that rikku might be the best?
    I.e. Luka - agrias - vol/ace - rikku - wol ?
    I am not sure why I would like to use 2 supports. It seems I'd miss some dps no?
    Not a fan of illias as you need to have some material to burn.
    So it comes down to desh vs soleil.
    Any idea?
    Again thanks a lot for the help. I am going to level agrias for sure :). Didn't know that zyrius is weaker either :)

    Aria is slightly better than luka, based on her limit burst and aoe status heal. But I prefer luka because of regen being a high modifier and def/spr buff. With dual cast aria would be preferred.

    I think Ace is easier to gear for mid range stats and VoL is harder due to being HYBRID damage based. Ace also has good enhancements which will allow him to finish for your agrias chains.

    Some trials you will need 2 supports and 1 dps. Some require you to sustain your life more than do damage because they hit so hard. Soleil is a buffer and Desch is a debuffer so they will each have their niche to fill.

    Mages are typically less effective because
    They can't DW hit so they burn more MP
    They have less sustainability so they die faster.

    Ace and VoL are magic based with attacking like abilities so they will hit with dual wield and killers too I believe.

    I don't like Prishe because she is turn based, she requires moves to be used in sequence which limits effectiveness. I think Enhanced Agrias is the best 4 star unit, and better than most 5 star units because she chains with Orlandu and Dark Veriras, meaning you can build an elemental chain and finish with Ace easily.

    Zyrus is good against Dragons but that is it.
    For Ilias it's not about using items as much as the abilities that are useful.

    For most missions/trials
    WoL, Enhanced Agrias, Enhanced Soleil, Rikku, Enhanced Ace with friend Orlandu.

    That will get you through almost everything.

    No problem. Just did some research and the only real thing with Aria is she doesn't have the def/spr buff. I don't use her as I have tilith. But she has a regen that is better than lukas. So I guess using her would be good.

    You gotta work on getting a dual wield or bowie knife of camilles aqua blade though. Those will make your agrias useful. When you get DW things change drastically.

    Tmr farming. If you are serious about the game you will have to do some the farming. You don't have to go crazy with it. But eventually it makes a difference.
