Some MinMax/ Long Term building question
I have lvl 99 Mont and Gafgarion
But I have Gilgamesh and Robb Hourne thats just lvl 30
Do I just keep using Mont and Gaf to Max their JP or do I use Gilgi and Robb because they'll have better stats late game given they are UR?
Also is Gilga actually strong enough to make his double priced Shards actually worth it?, is the reason he's only A because of how long and more expensive he is compared to others?
Personally never been a fan of Robb. Had him on an alt account when I first started and I just never felt like he dealt enough damage to matter. Gilgamesh can be pretty monstrous but you basically have to whale to max him any time soon, otherwise you can just pump his shard quests everyday for two shards at a time or use a little Visiore to grab two more by resetting the daily limit.
Without resets you're looking at 100 days of doing that for LB5, not even counting the time to get LB3 and LB4. I got his first and second LB with his character quest, pulling him as a duplicate twice in the beginning, some dedicated days of running his hard quest for shards, and not realizing 500 visiore for 5 shards is a dumb deal and buying that a few times.
It comes to personal preference. He can be decently powerful and his backstory is super cool (spoiler if you haven't watched the cut scene with him in it so I won't say anything) but my 89 Fred and 89 Medeina don't have any issues clobbering 89 and above Gilgamesh when I run into him in PVP. I'm not a top tier player, usually stay between 8k and 10k rank every week at reset.
But those are my thoughts and opinions on those two characters. Personally I'm putting my time and effort into Fred (80ish shards from LB5!) and now Lucia for my DPS units. If you can snag an Engel for a tank position, it let's you play with your DPS a lot more. Hope this helps and good luck on future pulls!
Gilga: Super strong. Only unit so far that can get two master abilities. If you only do the hard quest for his shard (1 a day) it'll take you 600 days to max LB. His shards in shop cost more than other units
Mont: a great "free" tank as you can buy shards with gil and do hard quest. Paladin as a 2nd job makes him beefer. If you don't have a tank then stick with Mont
Mont & Gaff will be your two mains for now till you get more units. Check out the ranking list and see which units you want to pull for. For the extra energy you have grind the job/awakening materials now so when you do get them you can increase them quickly
ok! thanks everyone! so all in all, basically just don't bother with Gilgi and Robb given they're not strong enough to use all the extra items to max them up, so it's just better to wait for future characters that will surely destroy them statwise in the future
