Pit had a guide somewhere, I dont know how actually useful it is considering he liked to intentionally limit himself. You could at least give it a look-see.

And I have been interested in fomar mechanics for quite some time, Ive always enjoyed supporting a group but I dont wanna sacrifice so much that supporting is the only thing I can do.

honestly i dont blame you for not wanting to roll a hunl, people are fucking weird here and will desperately attempt to initiate erp for some reason

heres shit i remember using, ymmv:
asteron (hit)
- it's not as good as every parasol in the game but it's a beatstick that looks kinda cool and that's what counts. please don't use the special

50h double saber
- you may as well. substitute in a hit girasole if you got one from easter

excal (hit if you want to zerk shit)
- you can kinda nnh with it without hit but youll want hit otherwise. this is the main draw to playing fomar instead of foney. probably.

some form of sacrificial mech
- your nns is going to be depressing but what can you do. when the s hits it'll at least have a little more meat behind it than that of a fomarl's or a fonewm's

.. basically just use anything else you'd use on any other fo for melee damage. all the staples are the same (fanatic etc), you just dont get pgp so you have to roll chaostriker instead.

honestly fomar has a lot of really crippling weapon choice issues. i only recommend him over fomarl if you really need the gi boost for your playstyle. the extra 130ish atp is nice but you lose out on parasols and vivienne AND rambling may AND rico's glasses so it's kinda

yeah

on the bright side though you can be an old man, which is fun

real talk though he is fun to play, just the 163 ata thing makes him a sort of laughing stock

Hey Hey Hey! Not everyone tries to initiate an ERP here! Unless your talking about somewhere else in which case I'm sorry.

I'll throw in my 2¢. Level 161 on ephinea and 110 on GC. I think I'd be a bit dissapointed if I made my fomar in place of a hune. Mostly for the reasons you listed.

In my eyes the versatility of having melee and spellcasting as viable options is what makes the fomar a lot of fun to play. Techs give you a lot of utility in their ability to stun/interrupt certain mobs ie. ob lilies or Zus. Mobs that are too spread out for slicer/partisan are no problem either.

J/z duty is a double edged sword. Kind of a pain to have to cast it before you start attacking all the time but it tags the mobs so you can feed your mag/tp stuff in combat and not miss a beat <_<

Yomap and Agastya did a good job listing really good fomar equip. I would add resta merge to the list of must-haves. Guardianna with hit seems to be somewhat popular as well. Havent gotten a good one to do a lot of testing so im not sure how i feel about the tp drain.
Honorable mention to Soul Eater for the low levels.

Totally roll one though PSO always needs more forces.

Here's what I use with why I do:

Prophet of Motav (not mine ;-;)
Merc rod (Grantsing Zus and Dorphons)
Magical Piece (gifoiegifoiegizondegifoie and etc)
Glide Divine (J/Z and etc)
35h Holy Ray (Arresting dorphs, girtas and astarks)
30h Brifle (demoning at safe range)
30h SoF (demoning for faster kills)
25h Soul Banish (for hordes of grunts + staggerlock/reposition)
HELL J-cutter (ep 2)
Charge diska/vulcan 50h

Cursed Cloak (for having fun with megid)
Ignition Cloak (gifoierafoie and etc)
Congeal Cloak (kondry plz)
DF field (defense wow!!!)

Red ring (for ATA and etc)
Resta merge
Rafoie merge
Red merge (cos I dont have 10PDs for a MAX 7 DEF red barrier for gifoie merge :^) )
Yellow merge (No Three Seals)
Gizonde merge
Blue merge

V101
V801
V502
Smartlink

Seems like a bit, but depending on the quest you can drop half the stuff in your bank. E.g. in group play, I leave most of my atp stuff in bank except SoF.

The lack of female weps and a 163 ATA cap makes early game feel extremely crippling once you get into Ultimate, which is going to shoehorn you into a support-only role for awhile. That changes once you obtain enough tech and ATA boosts (hit %s, red ring, etc).

A FOmar's max damage potential is a few steps above the other forces (excluding trying to out-tech a FOnewm). The problem is the hefty amount of work needed to completely overcome the 163 ATA limitation (40+ hit excals and 65% hit vulcs don't grow on trees :()

Still a very fun force to play, though I'm getting really bad at remembering to prioritize actually healing team-mates :<
