Strength, Weakness, Tips,and Esper Recommendations

[+] High Defense and Health, he’s one the best tanker in the game
[+] Can support your party with Focus ability
[+] LB is one of the best in the game.
[+] Good TM (Excalibur)

[-] Spr is not “high” which make him weak against Magic and make his curaja not as high as “real healer”

[0] You want to focus his Def and Spr status
[0] You don’t need to use provoke anymore because the chance of saint wall is already high
[0] Provoke is actually bad for him, because it will make the enemy directly attack you. So, you won’t get damage reduction from Saint Wall

Recommended Esper (Focus on attack):
[0] Golem, high Def and nice Spr make him become better tanker.

Rating: 10/10

He’s definitely one of the best tanker in this game (Another tanker is Warrior of Light). He also can help your healer with Curaja and support your mage’s party with focus. With him , you may don’t need about Mage’s low defense because he will take the physical damage for them.

    Hi man.

    What do you think if i put WoL and Cecil in the same party?

    In my case, i want to replace Celes with Cecil because Cecil is better and also have Focus.

    I relized that both WoL and Cecil are suit for tanker and suport, so if they are in the same party, which one should i equip with Siren, which one with Golem?

      Cecil doesn’t need provoke but he need that need that defense :). So, I still prefer Golem on Cecil. Both of them can be in same party because WoL has full break :). Later, on 6 stars both of them are different, because 6 stars WoL won’t learn Saint Wall which will make Cecil better healer, but WoL will learn some insane debuff, however judging by how hard to break the boss right now (recent event), I prefer Cecil much more :).

      So, Cecil Golem (if you want to him more tanky)
      WoL (Siren)
