    The light frontier gate is the last one I haven't cleared all the rewards on, still missing the sphere and elgif....The biggest thing I have trouble with is just surviving the first turn since the dark enemies hit my units hard...I have at least 1 unit die every time, so it's very annoying. I also Have trouble making a good enough squad to make enough points, so like the title says, I'm asking for help with making a squad. Here are my notable light units:
    Omni: Miku (in the works)
    7*'s: Will, Sefia, Tilith, Melchio, Ark, Lilith, Alyut, Kira, Fadahl, Raaga, Nemethgear, Krantz, Nadore, Lucius, Charala, Rouche, Reihard, Sirius, Layla, Aurelia, Juno-Seto, Allanon, Gazia
    6*'s: Sodis x2, Deemo, Rinon, Jed
    5*'s: Rameldria

    Thanks for any help!!!

    First turn is always a problem with a lot of FGs. Not much you can do; my usual strategy is to sphere (maybe elgift) mitigator for BB gen, guard first turn, hope that mitigator can trigger on second turn, go from there. Krantz helps in this respect since his BB/SBB is relatively low cost.

    Probably your lead options are Sirius, Raaga, Rouche, maybe Nemethgear assuming own unit as friend, if using real friends maybe a Sakura Miku friend could be used.

    I'd say Sirius, Raaga, Rouche, Krantz, (last slot whatever), or Charla, Allanon, Krantz/Juno-Seto, (last couple slots whatever) depending on your preferences and who you use as lead.

    Suggested squad:

    Sirius lead/friend (tristat buff, BB atk buff, BC on spark)
    Allanon (all elements buff, burst heal, elemental weakness damage)
    Lucius (BB gauge fill rate buff, atk convert buff, spark blanket)
    Rouche (crit buffer)
    Juno-Seto (mitigator, barrier, healer)
    Raaga lead/friend (spark buffer)

    OR


    Sirius lead/friend (tristat buff, BB atk buff, BC on spark)
    Allanon (all elements buff, burst heal, elemental weakness damage)
    Lucius (BB gauge fill rate buff, atk convert buff, spark blanket)
    Raaga (spark buffer)
    Juno-Seto (mitigator, barrier, healer)
    Sakura Miku lead/friend (crit buffer)

    (Remember that you can choose your 'friend' lead from your own inventory, so if you have no Raaga/Sirius friends, you can just use one of your own (y))

    The key to surviving the first round is to equip your units with good spheres that provide HP, defense and as much damage as possible so you can survive their first attacks and wipe them out afterward. I can't confirm this since I'm not a data miner, but I've noticed that some of the first round opponents in the elemental FGs have HP thresholds when they activate their nukes, but not all of the first round units have them. If you normal attack some of the first round opponents, they will nuke you, but if you normal attack others, there won't be a nuke and they'll just end up normal attacking you. Try to experiment and see which unit(s) in the first round you can normal attack with the maximum chances of survival. (y)

    I would go with
    Allanon lead for the neg and boost of elemental damage and OD fill rate

    Raaga for the spark and hit count increase

    Sirius for the bb on spark and stat increase

    Krants for the mitigation, status removal, and for the heal

    Lastly miku for the crit buff once you get her set up. Hopes this helps you out.

    Element weakness dmg boost on Allanon's lead skill only affects damage dealt by an actual unit of element X, to actual enemy units of element Y. In a mono light squad, it therefore only boosts light damage dealt to dark enemies, nothing else. It doesn't boost any elements added by Allanon's SBB.

    In general, element weakness mechanics were specifically nerfed around Oct 2014; crit was also rebalanced at the same time. Many bosses in the raid/trial GGC context now also specifically resist element weakness buff.

    Allanon is an amazing squad member. He is a rather meh squad leader, since a big chunk of his lead skill is kinda useless.

    I full cleared it using the following, all of which you have.

    Sirius lead/Krantz/Layla/Allanon/Ark and the new OE unit as my friend.
    Had no problems with attacking on the first turn, had a couple BB's up for turn two and the rest went by easily.

    Maybe swap Ark for someone else but thats all I had worth using.
