Setzer

Look at that pale skin & bleached hair. He's been living on the airship for too long.

Strengths

  • Very tanky; Good HP esper, heavy armor
  • Primary Healer, has Rerise
  • Very good AoE with Slots (Blackjack, Chocobop) and Shoat summon
  • Good Offense thru unique Daryl's Soul relic; Endgame Fixed Dice is amazing

Weaknesses

  • Slow
  • Slots require practice/skill to use
  • No Party Buffs (besides Rerise)
  • Few Debuffs not tied into Slots

Like Locke, a simple yet effective character, defined by his top tier healing capabilities. In contrast to Locke's speed, Life, and knife/sword use, Setzer prefers heavy armor, Rerise, and AoE spam. Though his single-target offense can still be rather good.

Builds

Cleric

Standard Setzer, built with magic and HP/MP espers. Solid bulky healer with great magic AoE, a multi-target Stone summon, multi-target Stop Sloats, and potential for good physical offense thru equipping the proper weapons with Daryl's Soul. Build up his HP before magic; Slots is strong enough early on, and Setzer becomes nigh invincible tank once his HP is built up. A very strong character throughout the game.

One alternative is to build raw HP/MP. Blackjack AoE will suffer and his healing won't be quite as effective, but everything else works. In fact, it works even better because of your stupidly high HP & MP. Known affectionately as The Bank. The Bank can grab a handful of stamina levels if you're feeling cute.

$$$

Stamina Setzer, with some HP/MP as well. Main boast is very high & consistent single-target damage with GP Toss, as well as an increased chance to cover the party from physical attacks. Genji armor + Hero Ring recommended. (Use Red Cap if you don't care for Covering the party). Also boasts solid healing from RegenX. Just don't overuse RegenX as your main heal, as it's a more expensive heal on the Setzer build with less MP. (iow, use Cure 3 if Regen status ain't needed. Use Cure 2 for spot healing).

Misc

  • Shoat, Chocobop, and Blackjack are all amazing, and you should use them.
