    Pulled my first copy of her this morning. Obviously Rainbow Robe is an amazing TM, will be farming ASAP and giving moogles when the next trial comes out. But is she worth enhancing these days? My main units are in my sig, but she doesn't really have any good comparables lately. Unless she can heal a trial, teamed with Roy (and a Rikku for raising the dead)...but I don't think that's feasible.

    She's lost her spot really, what she does, is buff elemental resistance, yan does it better and is a 4* base, same with her status immunity buffs, mystea does that as well + other good things, so unfortunately,nowadays she's tm fodder, which is a shame because i actually like her backstory (and enhanced her even).

    She's still a nice unit and the best green mage. I keep her and don't regret it. 70% Dualcast Elements is still great, Love You All Regeneration pairs good with other healers and if you have her Tm she can easily be geared for 90-100% Ele Res.
    I say she's still a great unit to have.

    Enhancements... only if you need her regeneration.

    Love You All +1 Increase resistance to all elements (50%) for 3 turns to all allies
    Heal (6000 HP, 9x) split over 3 turns to all allies - 60 Support 15 10 8 2 1 [​IMG]500,000
    Love You All +2 Increase resistance to all elements (50%) for 5 turns to all allies
    Heal (10000 HP, 15x) split over 5 turns to all allies - 60 Support 23 15 12 4 2 [​IMG]500,000

    Lovely Guard +1 Increase resistance to all status ailments (100%) for 3 turns to all allies - 44 Guard 15 10 8 2 1 [​IMG]500,000
    Lovely Guard +2 Increase resistance to all status ailments (100%) for 3 turns to all allies
    Increase DEF/SPR (40%) for 3 turns to all allies - 44 Guard 23 15 12 4 1 [​IMG]500,000

    Reflect +1 Reflect 2 magic spell taken for 3 turns to one ally - 25 Green 10 8 3 - - [​IMG]120,000
    Reflect +2 Reflect 3 magic spell taken for 3 turns to one ally - 25 Green 15 12 5 - - [​IMG]120,000

    I just used her to do the Malboro trial and she is useful. I think it depends on team comp but she fits into mine. I have enhanced her Love You All and Lovely Guard. I don't have Mystea.

    She was a really good unit not long ago, but with the entrance of magic tanks she fell off quickly, Aoe elemental resistance is not that important anymore. And when Lotus Fina enters the scene she'll be completely unnecessary, she also has all element Resistance.

    The only thing that makes her unique is that she can help Stack "aja" spells with her Reflect LB. That's about it. If you really like her and want to use her I'd recommend equipping her with Barusa's tmr, Pod or Rikkus poach so she can do something else.

    She's still really good for 10 man. Elemental resist plus a regen is really good and she can DC all the best elemental resist spells. Yan's LB can give elemental resist near what she can provide but she doesn't do it better, but only when it's maxed out and only when the LB gauge is full which is quite an investment and not available on turn 1.

    On demand 70% resist to 2 elements or 50% to all elements + healing/turn. AoE immunity to status ailments + def/spr buff. AoE Reflect shenanigans. She is still very useful in a variety of scenarios. Maybe not quite as useful as she once was due to the release of Mag Tanks, but still a very strong support unit.

    Her 7+ has the nearest thing to an "invulnerability" move we've seen. She should be benched for now.

    But that is also the only thing she gains at 7*. And it has a 7 turn cooldown. Seems terribly underwhelming for a 7*.

    Marie is still a great unit. Marie a decent enough healer for even the hardest trials in GL. All you really need is a unit like Rikku to pair with her and nearly all your support issues are taken care of, except tanking and MP issues.

    Love You All! Is one of the best single buffs in the game. The HP regeneration is better than enhanced Luka. If you equip Marie with Cura, she can heal 4-5k a turn. Further she is able to protect your party from status ailments, which used to be unique to Marie (Mystea can, maybe others).

    If a fight can use her, she is amazing (Wicked Moon, Malboro). Admittedly, she does seem underpowered compared to other 5 * units. It isn't true one bit. Especially with tmr like Pod 153 and cowering courage.

    She was great and I used her all the time. But now I have ribbons, etc to be stat immune on the whole team and I rarely use her.

    Marie is one of the best units you can get for support and heal. I still dream getting her some day so I can pair her with Roy to make babys.

    No, seriously. You can make her a main healer with great supportive buffs, 50% all element resist aoe and regen at once so as all ailment resist aoe. And then she can dual cast 6 from 8 element resists for 70% aoe resist, which makes her the best element resist aoe buffer. On top of the cake comes that she has inner 30% resist to all elements and can imperil 40% aoe. Paired with Roy/Ramza/Lunera this makes a very strong support and heal build. The only thing you have to pass on here is mitigation aoe, except you have Pod or Barusa TMR. Though some tanks like VoE offer 20% mitigation aoe.

    Or you just use 3 support units, 1 tank, 1 dps and friend dps.

    I loved her in the past, but her lack of a stronger Dark Resist really hurts her. Though her overall kit is better, Minfilia has carried me in all recent hard trials.

    I really like her for her flexibility. Can cast Love You All, and then she is free to do whatever for 4 turns. And without an Ayaka or any other good healer she's been able to get me through any trial so far. The reflect trick is great too, but its so niche.
