For those of you that wonder whether it is worth it to sell some other 5*s you have laying around to max out your tidus (brotherhood and the Astral sword), let me tell you emphatically: YES! I run 3 accounts so I can run my own Co-Op team when my normal forum friends aren't available. My main account runs a maxed Terra, my 3rd account a maxed cloud with Buster NT. However my 2nd account was really lacking a direct damage doer kind of toon. Then first day of the Tidus launch I was lucky enough to use tickets to pull Brotherhood on the first ticket, then Astral Sword a few pulls later. I have yet to see a toon that is so gear dependent, but Tidus went from one of those "maybe level them up for the SP refill" to the captain of my team. The ability to slow a mob for several turns with his slash combo is epic, the buff from quick hit is amazing too. Now, if you didn't get the chance to get brotherhood, I wouldn't blow your gem load on trying to get it (wasn't lucky on either other account). There will be more toons down the road coming that should also be worth spending some Gems on. However, if you did get a brotherhood, go balls out and max out Brotherhood, Astral Sword, and spend your armor tokens on maxing Tidus armor. Look at the end result =-) I went from doing 25-30k runs on Eiko, to doing 55-63k runs (that and Chocobo at lv 11). If you want to try him out follow my 2nd account RedwingColonel! 801415172 Notice how much of a defense boost those last 5-6 levels of the 5* armor give. Seriously, it is insane how much more defense you get from a LV 35 5* armor than a lv 25 one. I cannot wait to see who they will give us next!
