    I'm sitting on 2 5-star select summons, and I wanted to get some opinions on which STMR(s) I should go for next. Currently, I have the following STMR's:

    Imperial Armor (Wilhelm)
    Magic Control Ring (Kunshira)
    Pure Lotus (LM Fina)
    Escutheon FFT (Ramza)
    Judge's Oath (Zargabaath)
    Original Arrival (Marie)
    Scanning Goggles (Aileen)

    I have 50% STMR on the following units, and I'm considering using them to get 2 more STMR, but not sure what would be the most beneficial.

    Knight's Medal (A. Rain)
    Onion Knight's Mission (OK)
    Twisted Hero (Seph)
    Truth Seeker (Elfreeda)
    Summer Whip (SB D. Fina)
    Shield of the Chosen King (Gladiolus)
    Rydia's Headband (PS Rydia)
    Omega Weapon FFXIII (Lightning)
    Lightlord's Armor (VoTL)
    Gengi Helm FFV (Gilgamesh)
    Force Mysterion (Lunera)
    Flamelord's Armor (VoTF)
    Dragoon's Wisdom (Reberta)
    Calming Garb (Lila)
    Booster Cactaur (Lulu)

    I feel pretty strong in most aspects, mainly looking for good hybrid gear, but wanted to see what opinions are out there. I have quite a few other units that are at 0% STMR, but I think going for 2 would be the best utilization at this point, just curious what the community has for thoughts on which ones to go for.

    Never use them for STMRs, period.
    They are a luxury and never needed. It is better to invest them for good units.

    Don’t. But, your best upcoming STMRs are Knight’s Medal, Onion Knight’s Mission, Twisted Hero, Truth Seeker, Shield of the Chosen King, Lightlord’s Armor, Genji Helm, and Calming Garb.

    Knight’s Medal, great in any regard, and the stats are usable for hybrids.

    Onion Knight’s Mission has 80% ATK with a sword, which is extremely high, plus swords are common (especially amongst hybrids).

    Twisted Hero is the same as Onion Knight’s Mission but for the slightly less common katana.

    Truth Seeker is TDH with great survival stats, amazing for when you’re at the ATK% cap and just need to add TDH.

    Shield of the Chosen King is amazing tank stats.

    Lightlord’s Armor has some of the best stats for hybrids on armor, plus basically light immunity. That makes it a very versatile equipment option.

    Genji Helm is amazing in every regard, with high stats, ailment resistance, and element resistance.

    Calming Garb is really underrated but helps with cheesing so much (uncoverable damage or just leaked damage), and even has some offensive stats.

    This, ofc up to the ticket holder, but when the hot meta unit comes out ( akstar cg Sabin etc etc etc etc ) you will have a shiny stmr and not the meta game breaking unit.

    Having 20 UoC tickets in reserve is better than any single piece of gear, in my opinion and experience.

    None of the damage gear is a long-lasting upgrade. The resist gear will be useful all the time.

    I believe that STMRs can be worthwhile if they are twice as powerful as a TMR— they need to effectively grant you another gear slot—and you’ll use that STMR in encounters for the next year at a minimum (still ideal in JP). So no weapons usable on a small list of characters, no ATK% increases under 30%, no weird stats like jump damage, no items that won’t make a difference (if your tank lives easily, he doesn’t need a shiny new shield).

    The only STMR you have that qualifies compared to BiS is A.Rain’s, and you simply may not need it. I’d hold on and save.
