    Now that LD has become available for more characters, it might be nice to take stock and see:

    1. Who have you LDed?

    2. Who has been the best choice in your opinion?

    3. Who do you have the most regret LDing?

    4. Who’s next?

    1. Vanille, Vaan, Squall, Lightning, Cid Raines, Bartz

    2. Vanille. Dualcast white magic lives up to the hype.

    3. Vaan. While his LD is pretty good, it doesn’t enhance him as much as the others, and I haven’t used him as much recently. Mainly due to Magicite’s breaker-unfriendly design.

    4. Shelke, for speed-runs.

    1) Lightning, Ramza, Y'shtola, Shantotto, Vaan, Bartz and Rinoa.
    2) Y'shtola: double cast heals really saved me many times
    3) No one, they are all useful in their own ways
    4) Cid Raines, 'cause I have his bsb and osb and I need 2 more 4* wisdom motes :Ded:

    Vanille, Vaan, Luneth, Cloud.

    Vanille has really helped with the occasional triplecast. Pushes the odds of sustainability up a lot to have higher chance of dualcast proc.

    I regret Vaan as it’s not really getting utilised. I can see if I RW cloud usb and spam his BSB perhaps after piling on the debuffs but it is too specific a strategy.

    I will like to have Edge and Alph next, although the latter, along with Larsa, don’t have access to LD, yet.

    Vaan will be great outside of Magicite. I have his USB now but I dove him when I only had his BSB and SSBs.

    Vaan is great with LD, as long as you have a good dagger for him and a pentabreaker beside him. He is a good source of fast NE DPS.

    1. Who have you LDed?

    Let's see....Y'shtola (Yoshi), Cloud, Squall, Cid Raines, Terra, Edge, Bartz

    2. Who has been the best choice in your opinion?

    This is genuinely hard to say. I've found them all to be amazing and incredibly helpful. Y'shtola gets used everywhere, so I guess that's the best. As Deuce said, wall + heals in one package is awesome.

    3. Who do you have the most regret LDing?

    No one yet....mild regret over Terra I suppose? She's absolutely bonkers overall, I just haven't had a need to use my mages as much given the current meta. Also I have disposable WIS/SPR at this point...

    4. Who’s next?

    This is honestly a really hard call. There are lots of extremely strong units with relics that I'm sitting on but not nearly enough motes. Shadow is kind of high on my list because of the impact of 35% dualcast on his overall performance and the stat buff from LD for magicite dungeons. However, I also got Lightning's USB from the fest, which suggests I should do her next. Then there's Ayame who's an ice monster with her LD and samurai dualcast, but I do have Squall, so I can wait on her. And last but not least is Tidus, who I currently have 0 relics for, but will be pulling hard on FFX-1, so he would make an amazing LD with his dualcast water and chase relic. There's also my buddy Prompto, who would improve on his already great skill set + relics with his LD that has him spitting out imperil lightnings. Whale dilemmas :) I'm open to suggestions on who's next!

    In hindsight,
    1. (In chronological order,) Lightning, Cloud, Y'shtola, Squall, and Cid Raines.
    2. I suppose that'll be Y'shtola. As many others did recommend me to prioritize WIS+SPR motes on black mage types instead, I just didn't have a decked out black mage character with top tier SBs and a good LD tree. Hence, no regrets investing motes into her.
    3. No regrets so far.
    4. I've multiple LD characters planned:
      • Shelke: I had heard about how good she is as a wrath-entrust bot with her LD and without any SBs. I also have just too many BRV motes in hand.
      • Edge: Though I only have his SSB2, I also had heard about his effectiveness in Magicite speed runs combined with his dualcast Ninja abilities.
      • Tidus: Only if I strike all his top prizes in next FFX event. Else I might just dive Edge as both of them consume DEX+BRV motes.
      • Rydia: Ready to dive once FF4 event comes by. I've both her BSB and OSB.
      • Tyro: He had always been ready, and had been the go to person for his party buffs from Wall and BSB. But I felt that I need at least his USB also in hand to justify LD him.
      • OK: if I get his BSB and one of his USB from future OK USB event, he is definitely LD for sure.

    2. Squall and Yuna have destroyed everything. Raines is recent but also slays.

    3. I only seem to use Faris as a battery lately so her LD isn't helping much :/ Ayame hasn't seem a ton of action either. Since I have BSB and OSB the latter gets used more while her BSB is what gets boosted by LD.

    4. Shelke even though I don't have relics for her. Ultimate battery! I want to LD Papalymo too even though I usually use him for Ley Lines. It gives him more chances with abilities. Alph will also get LD as soon as he's unlocked.

    1. Who have you LDed?
    Zidane, Terra, Cloud, Squall, Cid Raines, Iris
    2. Who has been the best choice in your opinion?
    Zidane duh. (Iris comes close damn that girl is...goldly)
    Zidane for biased reasons.
    I LDed Iris cause I have her lmr. I had no intentions of LDing her until I saw her stats. DAMN THAT SPEED AND HP FOR A WHM IS INSANE WHO WOULD'NT?

    3. Who do you have the most regret LDing?
    Definitely not Zidane.
    4. Who’s next?
    Could be either Lightning, Noctis, or Bartz. But i'm looking for Either a healer or a utility character.

    Iris? Interesting choice. Went to check her out after reading this. Her stats are great, but her LM2 isn’t. Would be worth a dive to LM1, together with her LMR.

    1. Who have you LDed?

    Full: Terra, Squall, Y'shtola, Noctis, Ramza, Iris

    Partial for stats and LM1: Tyro, Fran, Curilla (only the left side for defense and hp)

    2. Who has been the best choice in your opinion?

    Y'shtola. Her dual cast seems to proc half the time!

    3. Who do you have the most regret LDing?

    Ramza. I just don't use him enough compared to others.

    4. Who’s next?

    Shelke. For the hype. Zack for his USB/BSB. Sephiroth, after seeing how broken Terra is with OSB, I can't wait to see Sephiroth with trance :) Aerith, because I really like her USB and her AOE LM is super unique. I'm in wait and see mode for mages depending on relics.

    I've legend dived Yshtola, Celes, Vincent , Balthier, Ramza, Agrias, Vanille, Ashe, Bartz.

    I guess I regret Balthier the most, but Agrias probably could have waited for a while. Their LM2s are kind of lack luster.

    Ayame from XI is my next target and she is 3 nodes away from being fully dived. After that I'll fully dive Cid Raines and then maybe Fujin. Kind of lost track of everything at the moment.
