TLDR: The Queen of Delays has returned even more capable than ever. Degenerator Whip provides a large delay to a single target while Laser Whip delays all targets. Choose wisely what you need in each given situation. She has many skill uses from refunds so don’t feel like you need to stretch her skills out. All of her skills battery the party.
Laser Whip is a high turn rate attack that delays all targets by 1 turn. This is the source of her rare turn rate down debuff, which is applied to all enemies. This will be your go to move due to the difference in skill uses.
Degenerator Whip delays the target by 3 turns with an instant turn rate. With 9 total uses, make sure you use one of these before using her LD!
Homing Whip recharges in just 1 skill use and provides Quistis with her Instructor’s Whip buff, giving out some decent stat buffs. This is the only skill Quistis has which does not delay and if she's not dealing a lot of damage, you may not want to use this unless she's batteried up.
With 26 skill uses, if you’re planning to deny all boss turns, you probably never need to use her EX, as the only party auras from it are overflow related. Just be sure to maintain her LD buff.
Ray Whip delays all targets by 2 turns, recovers one use of Degenerator Whip, and gives Quistis her 1 stack of her strong Instructor’s Insight buff. Instructor’s Insight gains stacks each time her or her allies act up to 3 stacks, increasing the very potent stat buffs in her aura. Unique to Quistis (even in current JP), this buff also allows her to delay bosses that resist delay. The stacks reset to 1 every time the enemy acts so use your delays wisely to keep yourself at 3 stacks and do not let this buff fall off.
Ability Recovery Buff recovers one use of Laser Whip and Degenerator Whip so be sure to use this in a pinch.
