Supplementary Notes to the Infographic Analysis:

The infographic covers the key critical points and should be reviewed prior to delving into the in-depth notes

Gameplay Notes:

  • Use Boost Jump for AoE shaving while avoiding BREAK for yourself. Use Dragon for healing yourself or your allies by a small amount if Cid is full health.

  • Base skills are pretty straightforward, use Dragon Dive for dispels.

  • Big Brawl is alternating (whoever you target is will be hit last) : 2 enemies (target A, ABABABABABABA), 3 enemies (target A, ABCABCABCABCA)

  • Don't remove his SPD passive, it's tied to an important mBRV buff and he has no longevity issues.

Team Synergy Notes:

  • Cid has no auras, so make sure to stack those aura bots with him if you want a good team composition. With only one debuff and 2 framed buffs, he is pretty easy to slot in teams.

Sphere Recommendations:

  • A spheres: As per usual, ATK, BRV DMG and mBRV spheres are primary

  • C spheres: Eiko's and the upcoming Nine's spheres are pretty interesting, as they will help Cid's healing passive trigger much more. Be warned that Eiko's sphere will only trigger on Hyper Jump & Dragon Dive. If you do not want to bother with minimalistic healing, opt for stat boosts like Garnet.
