    Can anyone opine if Caris is worth focusing on after getting Edgar? I'm currently J2 on both and I'm not sure if I can get Caris down to J3 down the line.

    If you have Caris, Edgar is a bit of a waste. Farming gear for better units is more valuable than using energy to limit break Edgar. Do you have any other good ranged units--Magnus, Reagan, Anastasia, or Ryle? Do you have a Chronomancer?

    I juuust got Ryle and Rahu and focusing all my energy on Rahu for now. I haven't decided whether I want to level up Ryle yet because I have Caris and i figured just her is enough for now.

    Resources getting to be limited because I was stupid and thought I had to level up all the skills.... so much waste looking back.

    Rahu and Caris together will do very well. Get Booster +1 and maybe Basic Firearms from her J2 and stick with Gunner.

    Think of it like +10 to Caris' ATK when it's at level 20. Personally, I like Long Shot over Shot Mastery, so I'd go Long Shot, Booster and Counter until you get her to Sniper.

    holy**** nice website. Thanks for this.

    Yea I was wondering how to build her. She only has 2 passive slots though so i'm going Long Shot and Booster.

    Erm Ryle is one of the best units. He has more range, can fire at better angles, cannot friendly fire and his Wide Barrage skill is a cheap long rage AOE which is a game changer. He also nukes everything in Arena no problem. He is better than gunners/drifters.

    yea that's the thing that i've been trying to think over.

    I think in this case i'm picking Caris over Ryle is because i've already invested so much into Caris and I don't have enough resources to be leveling up another Ranged at the moment (going to focus on Rahu then Shayana). Currently sticking with my J1 Mastered Caris and will get to Ryle after Shayana.

    Ryle is greater than Caris in many ways but depending on the difference in job levels it might be best to stick to Caris--keep her at the top, if she's there--get Shayna to a usable level then soft-grind Ryle. Job levels 9, 10, and 11 can take a few days and you don't want your team to fall because you are starting over. That said if they are all somewhere in the job level range of 4 to 8, switching is much easier.

    This makes sense. Buuut since i'm only 1 item away from mastering Shayna J1, i'm gonna deal with that then balls to the wall Ryle.

    A reason I use Almira sniper (summoning gave me many of her dupes xD) because of +3 range (which helped me against dem Thunder Diablo) even if she lacks damage for that reason since I gave her j1 and j3 range passives to be able to hit safely.
    And I own Ryle too so I know dat feeling of being spoiled by Ryles xD

    Well being on topic, I do believe it depends if you own Caris or not.
    Edgar is free while Caris atm needs to be summoned. If you don't own any other ranged units, Edgar isn't a bad choice, he can have +2 range thanks to both j1 + j2 passives or if you want a more offensive Edgar to combine the 2 jobs missile atk passive.
    Caris though shines at j3 coz of sniper.
