    Alright so I have these guys of note at 6* already (I removed some I don't care about from the list):
    • Christine
    • Duke
    • Lightning
    • Luka
    • Mystea
    • Olive
    • Rikku
    • Roy
    • Veritas of the Flame
    • Warrior of Light
    • William
    These are my 5* who could be awakened next, bolding the ones I'm actually considering, and again removed some who are 5* but I have no plans to turn 6* ;)
    • Aileen
    • Ashe
    • Aura
    • Elfreeda
    • Fryevia
    • Gladiolus
    • Knight Delita
    • Reberta
    • Zargabaath
    I've been leaning towards Fryevia since I have Christine and in theory they chain nicely for a few techniques according to https://ffbe-chain.com/chain. I lack a properly decent physical chainer though, so Aileen has entered my considerations as well, I picked up Christine and Aileen on the same day. (I have Agrias, but awakening her darn Divine Ruination is really expensive to find those last few items! So far I've gotten her knighthood +1 and full break +2).

    Thoughts?

    I don't see a reason why you would want to enhance Agrias. Aileen is way better than Agrias and her enhancements are also available soon.
    If you lack any other tank awaken Gladiolus. He ain't the best but gets the job done.

    WoL and Mystea do pretty well for me tank wise, so haven't really been looking for another tank at this moment.

    Aileen over Fryevia? Better to focus on physical chainer than a magic chaining buddy at this point you think?

    Edit - btw I had only been enhancing Agrias because until recently I didn't have Aileen as an alternate option. I pulled her on the last day of the Christine banner w/ a 5k lapis pull of beautiful luck, lol.

    I'd say Fryevia. She has served me well from the first day I got her.
    She is TMR heavy tho, but she still deals a lot of damage

    No. But you have Christine. Who chains with a copy and Tranceterra and is MILES better than Fryevia.

    I'd say noone needs Elfreeda or K Delita.. They're just plainly trash. Great TMR fodder, but absolutley unusable as units. And there's no reason to awaken a tank that's worse than what you have either.

    I still leveled units that didn't have any direct use. I've cleared all hard content with Gladiolus. When you use him right, he can ST mitigate nearly just as well as Wilhelm. Wilhelm does other things though.

    Gladiolus has a decent AoE cover move and a niche ST cover move. Of you need breaks, WoL is hard to replace, of course.

    Just because a unit "isn't as good" as something you have, doesn't mean it will be bad to level them. Look at expeditions.

    To be clear, I don't have Wilhelm, I have William (mage). My current 6* tanks are WoL for physical and Mystea for magic.

    So far looks like I'm seeing 4 votes Aileen first 1 vote Fryevia.

    Guess I'll use my current mats and waken Aileen. Won't have enough for a second char awakening at this point, so I'll let you all continue debating who should go next after that ;)

    I understand. Someone else said that yu have a better tank than Gladiolus. I was just being deliberate in saying that Gladiolus is not a worse tank than WoL. They simply do different things.

    I'd go with Aileen, because we might get her enhancements next week, and you have Christine which is a good mage chainer and can chain with eTT.

    Maybe they're comparing to the fact that WoL makes both F2P and P2P top lists here but Gladiolus doesn't? Not much experience using Glad so I can't say what their logic was.

    Gladiolus tries to be an offense tank, wich doesn't really work (+ eDemon Rain is outperforming him by a ton). Every other tank has supportive aspects too (WoLs breaks, EV's AoE damage mitigation, Charlotte's AoE Refresh and Wilhelm's amazing buffs) and Gladio doesn't.

    No question, enhanced Warrior of Light beats Gladiolus in terms of physical tanking. The only thing Gladiolus has is a ST all damage cover.

    This is only better than Wilhelm in a small number of circumstances. So Gladiolus is rated worse for a reason. That doesn't mean that Gladiolus doesn't have uses or will not be useful to have leveled.

    As i see your team comp as of now will be Wol, Christine, Luka ,Roy, and one spot left.
    1.If you want to maximize damage Fryevia fits in very well. Because Fryevia can easily lower Ice resistance. Christine chains with your friend of course will destroy the enemy.
    2.If enemy is Ice resistance then u will run into a problem where Aileen fits in perfectly.
    3.Also Duke comes with his own ice imperil if u need it.
    I guess Aileen adds new dimension to your DPS plus she is very easy to build.

    I'm going to sat Fry first, Ashe second and Aileen third. Ashe is an arena beast and has some nice utility. I used her for quite a while before I had better chainers.

    Added a poll since I haven't yet been able to pull the trigger on Aileen since my silly self sent her on a long expedition last night, lol, but she should be back in a few more hours. Right now if I can count though I'm seeing about 4 votes for Aileen 1st and 3 for Fryevia first.

    My immediate goal is maximum damage for my group to be able to start doing the harder content successfully (bahamut, trials, etc) Long term I'll get both Aileen/Fry and more awakened, but at the moment only have enough mats for 1 x 6* awakening right now (thank you story event for the recent mats haha)
