    Well, the short answer is that you only have six long term usable units here - defined as units with max Omni Evolution, the top tier in the game. Two of them basically do the same job in a squad (Sonia and Eze) so pick either of those two. That’s five units. Five units is a squad, boom, done.

    Sonia (or Eze), Alessa, Kulyuk, Freed, Azalea

    This is not, however, a properly balanced build. You have spark dmg buff (Sonia/Eze), stat buffs (Alessa), ailment removal (Alessa/Kulyuk), and Kulyuk can be customised at Omni to heal.

    This is not bad, but you are missing BB gauge fill effects ...and have no unit for 50% damage reduction/mitigation on BB/SBB. Community calls this a mitigator. Think of it as the tank role. You need one.

    Kulyuk has the effect on his UBB, but that doesn’t help, you need a BB/SBB version, can’t spam UBB you see.

    Top priority is getting one, but there’s very very limited viable free options. Pray for a Magress from honor point summon, try getting Gazia from Trial X4 (who’s max 7* and not long term usable anyway), and so on.

    Make mitigator friends. Summon during rate ups for them. Summon at Erza Scarlet rate up gate since she’s one, while that is still up.

    If you qualify for unit of choice free pick at end of anniversary event with enough login days, choose one as your pick.

    Thanks for the reply! I actually just summoned using two anniversary tickets I got when I logged in today and I got 7* Stein. Is he a decent enough mitigator to use?

    Also if I were to use Stein, or get magress, who would I replace in my squad for them?

    Stein is definitely pretty great. He can heal when attacking (SP), cleanse, negate (SP), and add BB/hit (SP). Almost like a Kulyuk but with mit. He would be a great addition. You could drop Kulyuk for him, or Azalea (Alessa does tri buff-Azalea can be SP'd for HoT, but so can Kulyuk) since Kulyuk won't have much of a role anymore and Azalea doesn't do too much for the squad (carries water tri so yay I guess?).

    Alright, thanks for the help :) since neither have much of a role / do much for the team, should I replace them both? (Now that I have a few new units)

    It sort of depends on who those new units are, besides Stein. You should definitely 100% bring Stein, though, that's pretty clear.

    I swapped Kulyuk for Stein, and Omni'd stein. And I now have Rhoa as my lead, (idk it looks like he has the same role as eze and I was high and decided to Omni him because I thought he looked neat oops lmfao) and idk what to put in my third slot now (I have a lot more options now) I was thinking maybe Alessa, but the status ailment seems kinda redundant since I already have it on stein? Idk though. Also I'm still a low enough level to where I can only squeeze in three total units lol

    I'm guessing I should put someone who can help me with my BB fill now?

    Eze and Rhoa are both spark buffers, but Rhoa can carry BC/spark (which you'll want), so definetely Rhoa > Eze. Alessa will still have a use in your squad as a tri buffer and converter (albeit weak-it's an HP convert) even if Stein is taking care of Ailments. Also, you actually have two BB buffs already (BC/spark from Rhoa (SP) and BB/hit from Stein (SP)), so you could add a healer instead of a gauge manager (one could still be useful), or a ADR down/crit/ele null unit.

    Unit type doesn't really matter. It's like 300 extra base stat or 1000 extra base HP. Fairly meaningless, TBH.

    But to answer the question as intended, so, since Breaker gives you 300 (ish) extra base atk, it is technically the 'best' type for damage dealing units. I say technically, because once again, frankly 300 makes very little difference, but whatever. Damage dealers very broadly would include Eze, kinda Kulyuk (but fuck Kulyuk), Rengaku (if nuke spec), Barbara (if nuke spec), Marlo, Razak, Diastima (vs dark), Ragra, maybe Galtier, maybe Viktor, kinda Savia. Possibly Dirk Rezo since he's arena-oriented and atk is good for arena specialists also.

    Marlo, Razak, Savia, Galtier, to a lesser degree Ragra are the standout ones to me there. Marlo/Razak are nuke units proper, Savia and Galtier really aren't but they are utility units where the atk may be beneficial. Note that for Savia it's mainly her UBB we're looking at in this atk context.

    Here's the thing, though, when we're looking at high damage units, the issue is not just WHICH units you have, but HOW MANY, because you want 2x identical nukers to spark off each other in things like Frontier Hunter. So for example if you have, say, 2x Guardian Marlo this is probably better than 1x Breaker Ragra... you damn well go with the unit you have duplicates of.

    EDIT: Goddamn it, I just realised that @Omnathat isn't the OP of this thread but someone who just necro'd it. Meh. Rest of post deleted due to this.
