Best Gambits to Obtain Early
Your allies have a variety of commands known as Gambits. These Gambits function similarly to tactics or orders in combat that your allies will have to follow. Issuing a Gambit to an ally allows them to perform a specific role in battle.
Each of the gambits, however, vary depending on the character the orders are issued to.
Below are the gambits the player should buy as early as possible.
|Foe: Flying||This is for dealing with flying enemies. Those who have ranged weapons should have a Gambit combo that deals specifically with flying foes.|
|Foe: Undead||The Undead Gambit allows players to maximize damage against Undead creatures. Characters who have healing abilities or White Mage or Monk are best suited to this gambit.|
|Self: Buff||Buffs are important. They can function as a “difficulty slider” that helps take down bosses and Espers. Buffs like Shell, Libra, Protect, and Haste can make the battle easier.|
|Foe: Character Status: Blind||Combo with Sight Unseeing and the Poach skill.|
|Foe: Critical HP|
|Foe: More Than or Equal to 2||Dealing with multiple crowds and incoming mobs.|
|Foe: 100% – Steal||Stealing items that may only be exclusive to bosses. Equip the Thief’s Cuffs to increase the chances of stealing an item.|
Notes and Sample Combos
Gambits are not only restricted to a single command. The gambits arrange themselves by priority. In doing so, the actions executed follow in that particular order.
For example, if you’re planning to use a character as a tank and playing a Time Battlemage:
- Ally: Any = Remedy or any Ailment Healing Item
- Ally: Any = Phoenix Down
- Ally: any character on high damage class = Haste
- Ally: any character on high damage class = Berserk
- Self = Decoy
- Self = Libra
The numbers on the side are the gambit’s priority. The priority numbers dictate the order of the gambits’ importance. Once executed, the gambit list will loop until the battle ends. However, not all jobs work with a single Gambit combo. Several Gambit combos optimize specific traits of specific jobs.
