War of the Visions: FFBE Guide & Tierlist
Mediena, Cid, Lucia and Vinera are in the highest tier, since they are widely useable and really good.
Engel, Ayaka, Federica, Sterne, Viktora, Xmas Ramada and Xmas Macherie, Gilga, and Thancred can also get into this tier for their functions, but they are taken down a tier for their costs.
You will need a different tierlist for each content, so treat this as a general tierlist.
Mediena is by far the best pve unit, but not very good in AI arena.
Engelbert is a ridiculously strong tank that is somewhat weakened by the recent hate system change in jp, and he’s mainly a deadweight in high difficulty pve dungeons, but he is still decent in the porcelain tower.
Ayaka is by far the best healer in the game but the only content that really requires a healer is the tower, she is also pretty good in AI arena/gw when comboed with Engelbert.
Thancred and Greg are both bulky brusiers with decent dmg but they costs more than regular URs to raise.
Sterne started off really strong but fell off already since most units gained bulk to survive his oneshots but he remains very fragile.
Aileen, Oelde and Robb all suffer from low speed and mobility, which is kinda why they are all on the bottom of the list.
Macherie has one of the worst job combinations and is generally considered to be the worst UR.
Cid, Lucia and Vinera are newer dmg dealers that got to the top since they counters Engelbert’s high defense with defense breaks and defense penetration.
Cid is bulky and does good dmg with a def break, but he is one of the slower top tier dmg dealers and needs help hitting high evasion units.
Lucia is a backline dmg dealer with high def penetration that had an arena map, a guildwar map, a raid and an UR vc card dedicated to.
Vinera has the best of both worlds with both def break and def penetration, but she requires to be close and personal. She does have the evasion to back it up though.
Best reroll option for F2P/Small Spenders is Mediena.
Gilgamesh is also a great option but he costs double the cost of URs.
Xiza is a top reroll target, if you are planning on spending lapis on shards.
Xiza is a must get for whales as her TMR changes the game.
*TMR is Trust Master Reward, an equipment you get after max limit breaking and max starring a unit.
Warrior of Light(FFI)
Units marked with R are release units.
When attacking with an elemental ability, units that are weak to that element will display a “Weak” icon above them, while units that are strong against that element will display a “Resist” icon. Additionally, each unit has an elemental resistance. Resistance affects the amount of damage they take when attacked. High resistance means they will take little damage when attacked with that element, while low resistance means the damage they take will be greater.
Each character has 3 jobs.
Jobs determines what kind of abilities and stat growth a unit will have. A unit’s main job is locked, meaning the job they start off with when you first summon them cannot be changed. But as you upgrade your unit, you will be able to unlock sub-jobs which can be equipped upon clearing stage 3-4.
Characters level 40 and below can only level a Job up to level 6. Character level lower than 50 will only allow to level a Job until level 9. The secondary job on the other hand is based of the character’s star., if the character have 2 star, you can have a secondary job, if the has 4 star, if can get a tertiary job.
■ Job Enhancement
Each job enhancement raises the job level and base stat of the unit. Depending on the job, different stats will be raised. In addition to the stat improvements, job levels are one of the requirements for unlocking new skills and abilities in the skill tree.
■ Limit Break
Limit break raises the unit’s max level and max job level. This will be one of the harder enhancements to fulfill especially for UR units due to the fact that character shards are required for limit break.
■ Skill Tree
In the character’s skill tree, you will be able to unlock new skills, passives, and stat boosts for the unit. Job Points (JP) are needed to unlock new tiles. JP are gained as the unit levels up. The skill tree will feature four different tile types, each differentiated by color.
Support skills are passive effects that you can equip on your unit one unlocked.
Passive skills are flat stat boosts
Reactive skills are passive effects that only take effect when certain requirements are met during combat
Active skills are split into two groups, Main and Sub Job. Main skills will have an additional frame in the skill tree and Sub Job skills won’t.
