    i am missing tons (just got Odin) but before using my stuff to increase their level is it worth doing?

    Are there better ones I should save the crystals for?

    All the espers are worth building up. Most of them have killers, and all of them will give at least 50% elemental resistance to a specific element.

    Edit: only Odin, Lakshmi, and bahamut have no elemental resistance bonus or weakness. But they're worth building up for their stats / kit

    1* bahamut has better average stats than most 2* espers, and is a lot easier to max out than 3* espers (which might be difficult to get for someone who's only gotten Odin anyways)

    The few supercites he'll use for bahamut is easily worth it IMO.

    Because stats ticks matter, lol.

    Honestly, that is the least important part of an esper.

    Elemental resistance, killers, abilities and magic matter way more than that.

    Bahamut Is a useless esper compared to most of the others.

    There are a few units that heal out of elemental dmg like the veritas and Esther which was the unit you probably saw.

    I can tell you that a properly geared top DMG dealer like Esther from a friend can help you ftko some of the 3* espers

    It will take a while but you can definitely max all of them
    Sadly he has basically nothing going for him. He has no element, no useful abilities, he is annoying to get, no elemental protection... He does have good stats compared to 2* espers and Citra can use him properly iirc.

    But overall he is disappointing, yes.

    Bahamut was pretty good when he was released. He was strong as a finisher. But now, he's just useful for the "kill with esper" missions due to his long animation (you can use other espers anyway).

    Iirc, he has a big damage mod for the actual summoning, so he's kind of useful as an actual summons?

    I think he's also getting a 2* form in the nearish future.

    Or maybe I just need to get some sleep...

    You can, yes.
    The longest animation is probably diablo, so as long as your enemy is not inmune to dark he is the safest one to use.
    So....not useful.
    Which is still bad iirc

    Bahamut may have no resists but he also has no weaknesses, so he's good to throw on arena people.
