    I have several Mages as friends, but sometimes when I look in the list, they are not available as a companion. Is there a timer on how often you can use them? Or is there some other criteria that allows them to reappear in your list?

    EDIT: btw, I am currently using Vaan as my lead. But I also have a 300+ Kefka. Would that be better to place as my lead for this event? I think both are useful for ELT vortex

    I don't know the correct answer, but yes 3 hours seems to be in the ballpark.

    Well, that would certainly explain it. Somewhere else on these boards, someone mentioned 30 minutes, but in hindsight, that does seem too short.

    Yes, it's 3 hours. For me personally, I take a screenshot everytime I use a specific one (like Oboi) so I can time the next timing he is available. LOL

    But the companion selecting screen only packs 20 friends and 5 strangers. While I have a friend pool of 130, what criteria to decide who would appear on that 20 friends list?

    While I am not sure if the favourites list would have any bearings on the selection (other than preventing you from deleting them), you got to keep closing and reopening the app to refresh the list..you can set a filter like what I did (only 5* or 6* will appear on the selection list).

    I set it to 6* filter only when the timing to use the specific unit's 3hrs timing is up. (Specifically for Oboi...still looking for other 6* friends unit to add)
