Disclaimer

These 3 are objectively the best picks of all 10, it is a recommended pathway for progression, but not the only route for oracle recruitment.

Does that mean that the other oracles are bad?:

No. They're all strong and have unique, niche roles in their respectively elements, but they don't bring as much or are as flexible as the 3 oracles first mentioned (Nier, Alaanan, Caim).

Does that mean i can't pick any of the other 7?: It's a recommendation, not a rule. Due to less usage from the other 7 oracles, you should know what you are doing upon recruiting them.

I hope this guide will be helpful to everyone reading it. I put a lot of work to make this a guide on how to efficiently farm Arcarum with accessible setups.
