    After two weeks of grinding this is my current hones, pictured as
    ( having materials ) to extend,

    I understand, different team sets have different needs. I'm trying to be
    as open as possible and have abilities ( useful ) for all skill sets.
    What do you recommend I hone to R4 or Full?

    thanks in advance

    It doesn't need to be right away, but next time there's a poison weak boss you should probably get Chain Biora up to R3 or so. It's an often not resisted element even if not many things are weak to it.

    Lifesiphon should be R5
    I like R3 entrust
    Powerchain is much more viable at R3
    Saints Cross should definitely be R3
    Divine Cross to R3
    All elemental ninja abilities at least to R3 (no doppleblade)
    If you wanna use bards at all the mage/warriors hyms to at least R2
    No memento mori!?! If you have any magic darkness users you want that
    If you have Tidus CSB then Saphire shots should be honed up a bit

    I would say that would put you in really good shape for most situations. Of course you can always knock those off as the need arises for the given skill.

    You're talking to a guy with ~300+ of most major orb type lol. You've overall probably honed more than me.

    I find a lot of hones really depends on who you've LD'd and what relics you have. For example, I took chain thundaga to R5 because I picked up Ashe's USB, which gets better with # of hones. I have OD to R4 because it's such a fantastic non-elemental option with Cloud for Cloud USB shenanigans. Right now I'm focused on future abilities, but also try to have magicite required abilities high like the elemental spellblades for Bartz shenanigans and ninja abilities. You should definitely beef up those 5-star ninja magic moves. They are really huge, especially if your ninja is LD and can double-cast them. Makes Edge a star in the 4-star magicite ice battle (along with his USB0). Been slowly working on my machinist abilities since I've managed to collect a decent amount of machinist relics, which makes them great elemental partners on teams (Prompto, Balthier, and Laguna).

    A lot depends on your relics. If you have USBs for Edge, Yuffie or Shadow, I'd say that all of the ninja abilities are worth honing. After they're legend dove, the DPS from the ninja-cast with double cast chance is really insane.

    Other than that, a lot falls to personal preference. I like having my Full Break at R4. I have Rikku's USB, so I have honed Dances more than most people.

    Purely for elemental reasons when it came to the no sb broken soul battles... which are fine if you mitigate enough (pro, shell, multi break, new dance that aoe debuffs atk/mag), no need for wall, pick the hastega buffga...
    I looked at my fully dived dualcasters and went...
    Vanille Curada r4
    Squall r3 5* spellblades to cover earth, lightning (I also haveothers but not need for this set of broken soul battles) and r3 snowspell strike
    Edge is my water ninja, love him
    OK with r3 meltdown

    If I had the motes I would also dive rydia and papalymo, again for dualcast.
