Important notes[edit]

  • The value and usefulness of a character varies based on your rank, your team, fight length, fight mechanics and how you play.
  • Each element is evaluated on its own. A 9.5 rating in Fire is not the same as 9.5 in Water.
  • The rating reflects the median usefulness of a character. A character may lose points for being hard to use or fit in a team, or gain points for being strong against Magnas. Judging a character by HL usefulness alone may be unhelpful as HL teams tend to deviate from other content.
  • At the end of the day this is just a tool to help you find useful characters.

  • Unknown race lets her benefit from any Bahamut Weapon.
  • Her emphasis on utility means she's less useful when she can't land her debuffs.

  • Role: Attacker/Buffer
  • High risk, high reward character; she's fragile, but significantly increases party damage the lower her HP is.
  • Excellent support character with both offensive and defensive party buffs.
  • Flare is powerful and risky in raid battles, but you can learn when it's appropriate to use.

  • Role: Attacker/Support/Debuffer
  • Conjunction allows maximum use of Enmity which Dark has good access to. It's so good it's useful for other elements.
  • Decent attack along with her stellar support.
  • Absolutely terrifying in shorter fights and even some longer fights where it's safe to stay below 4k hp.
  • Of limited use to beginners. Strong in the mid and late game with Enmity gear, but her true potential requires insane gear.
