How to Unlock Tactician Class

Best Tactician Characters

Following are the best characters of the Tactician class.

Eunie
If you’re looking to equip any character with the Tactician Class, our first recommendation would be Eunie. She has one of the highest healing stats, making her complement this class well. She has Myopic Screen, Group Heal, and Healing Ring arts, which allows her to execute her roles as a healer very well alongside having offensive abilities.

In between a serious battle, Eunie can heal her allies while inflicting the Daze status, which greatly damages her enemies, making her a perfect choice for you. You can also use accessories such as Friendship Ring and Saint’s Necklace that enhances her Healing Arts even further.

Taion
Our second yet as great choice as Eunie will be Taion. He also has one of the highest healing stats, making him a great choice for the Tactician Class. As mentioned above, Taion is the only character with this class as default, automatically making him a suitable character to choose to play.

Taion also nullifies the foe’s damage by putting them to sleep and healing his allies. He mainly focuses on providing support and restoring his allies’ health when they face any damage by the enemies. He has Avenging Eagle, Stormy Skies, and Hazy Figure as his Arts which helps him lower his enemies’ evasion and inflict Break status.

By equipping accessories such as Circlet of Intellect and Saint’s Necklace, players can enhance Taion’s healing abilities even more.
