Strength, Weakness, Tips,and Esper Recommendations

[+] Have built in Dual Wield (No need to get Zidane and grind him to get it)
[+] Elemental attack both single and AOE, Lightning’s skills are different from “elemental” blade, the blade deals hybrid damage (which is bad), BUT the lightning’s skill is physical which make it really deadly.
[+] Really good Atk Status (thanks to Atk + 30%)
[+] Tm reward is also very good, basically same as zidane dual wield but you equip it on accessory slot
[+] Strong against physical damage because of 30% negating effect (light speed).

[-] As an attacker she doesn’t have any weakness….. so maybe the weakness if the chance to obtain her…. it’s only 0.5% on japan version :), so good luck if you try to pull it XD.

[0] One way to make her more deadly is to grind for Barrage (from Luna; I am pretty sure you have that).
[0] Give her Balde Mastery and equip her with Katana on another hand
[0] A good candidate for Excalibur :).

Recommended Esper (Focus on attack):
[0] Ifrit, He’s an physical attacker so it makes sense to increase her attack further.

Rating: 10/10

Another perfect character on this game. Everyone want to get her but because her horrible drop rate only few players able to get her… With her elemental attacks, you can easily chain your attack with your mage. Definitely one of the best in the game.

    hi, i just played FFBE a few days ago and got some good units for new player (some people say that). i have lighting, chizuru, charlotte, exdeath, refia, zidane, mercedes, carius. But i i am confuse about what must i focus on? complete the story or focus on level up my units? i am very happy read your guide for lightning. thanks very useful for newbie.

    • noobbgodlike says:

      Focus on leveling your char when there is an event like cactuar dunes, etc. For normal day, progress the story and make sure you complete your daily quest for lapis reward. Go to Vortex exp if you get enter vortex 3 times quest.

    I got Lightning less than an hour ago and my biggest regret is that I did not grind for auracite shards during the Orbonne event in order to exchange for Divine Crystals. I haven’t got her yet that time and I don’t want to spend ridiculous amounts of lapis and rare summon tickets just to summon her (I have 7650 lapis and 5 rare summon tickets). I don’t want to fight the PRO Level of the Giant Babel Event just to get the Divine Crystals. I think I will aim to max her level then wait for another event that will make it easier to get the awakening materials for her, particularly the Divine Crystal. So far, “patience is a virtue” style works for me.

    • noobbgodlike says:

      Hi, what do you mean babel pro for Divine crystals? You only open the treasure chest and that’s it right? (divine crystals). Also the Pro will give you Lilith Rod. Congrats on your pull though :).

      • mamushi says:

        Yup, the Babel Pro event, all my characters are murdered by the 2nd boss before I even reach the location for the third and then 3rd boss. My line up includes maxed up rain, lasswell, fina, charlotte and a friend with fullbreak or revive. Not been very lucky with summons until I got Lightning. Thanks.

        • noobbgodlike says:

          Hmm, I see your problem there… You get no character with Curaja.

        • mamushi says:

          Yeah, was not lucky to get Lenna, Garnet, Roselia and other characters with Curaja. I’m not too lucky with pulls most of the time, that’s why I got happy when I got Charlotte then Lightning. Anyways, will try my luck to get a character that can learn Curaja.

        • noobbgodlike says:

          Do you still have lapis? Try this banner, Rosa is quite good and have a decent rate (about 10% drop rate).

        • mamushi says:

          Yes, 8200 lapis. I’ll try it, I do not like spending lapis too much but I’ll try for Rosa. Thanks.

        • noobbgodlike says:

          You’re welcome :), hope you’re lucky.

        • mamushi says:

          Not too lucky with Rosa but managed to get Kain and Kefka instead. Also, thanks to the new event, which allowed me to procure the sufficient amount of awakening materials that I managed to upgrade Lightning to 6 stars and grinding her and my other characters that I got to level up fast. Thanks anyways.

        • noobbgodlike says:

          Wow nice 🙂 6 stars lightning, now you can clear all challenges very easy XD.

  3. Swordsman says:

    Beside barrage, what abilities to give lightning ?

    • noobbgodlike says:

      Max out her attack power. Like Lunge (Fencer TM). Later you can have Dark knight soul (CMIIW; Leonhard TM; not released on global) which able to boost your attack and def. Congrats on obtaining her :). But barrage is the most important thigh for her.
