Having done several MAE, Fiasco, TTF, RT etc runs over the course of this event, many of the party FOs have been severely lacking. This is no witchhunt, no one will be named or marked or what have you. But the amount of times I've seen a Force prioritize swinging their double saber around, or using a Bringers Rifle on a standard enemy, shooting their Vulcans, using their DoB, or spamming techs that do nothing but disrupt others/spawn flow, all of this gets priority and you have to ask for them to debuff, as if it's some unknown, unreasonable demand that the party support...supports. Sometimes you will die, only to be revived by the FO, only to go on unbuffed until you ask for SD. The party may be low on HP and standing next to the Force, but they may see rapid firing Rabarta as a better idea than using Resta. Maybe these are new players, or long timers returning. No problem! I would like to put out a few pointers that will help you be loved even more by your party: -A Glide Divine should be in your hands at almost times. This useful rod is cheap at just one PD, and doubles your Jellen/Zalure (JZ) range. -When a new wave of enemies spawn, debuffing them is the first thing you should do. Zalure first is appreciated because it lets the others get a move on killing the enemies. Jellen may not even be needed if everyone is high enough level. Consider the levels of everyone. Don't want to? No problem! Just throw on JZ on every spawn as it helps no matter what. -Gal Gryphon, CCA's boss, is better left without Jellen being casted. -FOmars/FOnewms who aren't using Gifoie in Episode 4 should strongly consider using a Resta Merge. It doubles your healing range and is just 15 silver badges right now, very useful. -Melee Forces: do your thing with your Girasole, DoB, or Vivienne...but just please, not at the expense of everyone else. Just remember that your ATP that is probably not maxed, doesn't help nearly as much as a quick Zalure does, even if you think it does. -See a Zu causing a nuisance in Episode 4? A quick Razonde or Gifoie helps stop them from circling, shooting lasers or fireballs, and so on! -I'm sure you have been told to spam Rabarta as it helps. Yes, but also not yes! Wait for enemies to bunch up together. This allows slicer, shotgun, sword, needle, and partisan users to hit many enemies at once. See a clump of lizards in Episode 4? Let them come close together, then freeze them in place, so someone with an Excalibur can finish the job even better. -Be mindful of dead teammates and give them SD upon revival. To those of you who remember that you are there to support the party before anything else, you know who you are. Thank you for your service on the PSO battlefields. To all else, keep in mind these simple tips. Because if you aren't buffing or debuffing, why are you there...? When another Hunter or Ranger who has a ton more ATP/ATA can help the party much more than you can?
