Sphere Recommendations

NOTE: The sphere letters below are hyperlinked to our Sphere Hub which lists all available spheres sorted by effect!
  • A Sphere - ATK or BRV DMG especially as Jecht wants to do as much BRV DMG as possible. He will always hit weakness on enemies who don't resist fire for an easy condition.

How-to-Play Notes

  • Jecht wants as many breaks as possible so when his turn comes up and an enemy is unbroken, break them with EX or S2! If both are broken, S1 or LD can unbreak them for Jecht to break them and get his free turn. Press his EX as often as possible as it grants an aura which allows him to get those free turns upon breaking!

  • Beast Rush+ is easier to spam to grant Jecht a break to get a free turn.

  • Jecht Slash+ does slightly more damage than Beast Rush+ due to splash and you can get back uses of it so go nuts!

  • Meteor Shot focuses one target, but splashes HP damage on others. You need to press this to maintain his Final Resolve buff and grant him the ability to follow up breaks with a free & instant turn (his red aura). It's slightly less damage than Jecht Slash+ due to 1 less splash attack, but it's worth it for his buffs. It also grants Jecht a free skill use which can be used on an attacking skill or AA if EX broke to line up another break while buffing himself a bit.

  • Jecht Slash Recovery gives him back an S2 usage while improving his ATK and BRV DMG Limit to make his BRV hits even more potent!

  • Triumphant Grasp breaks any unbroken enemies and after the 2nd HP attack will pull them out of break and probably break them again due to his strong BRV damage. Use his LD to refresh his LD buff, go for an AoE break, for strong AoE damage or just cuz it looks cool!

  • Blitz King is his BT+ attack. If greened, he will grant the party lots of handy buffs to boost BRV damage which helps Jecht do even more BRV (and by extension HP) damage! His BT phase allows him to take advantage of FR Times nicely as well as a new option!
