One of the hardest things to do in Final Fantasy Brave Exvius is building your team. Should you keep summoning until you get strong units or just go with what you got?

The answer depends on what type of player you are and how much free time you have. Even if you did or didn't pull the best summons, the next part is still tricky. Who should you put on your team?

To help you build better teams in FFBE, we are going to first look at the different types of unit rolls. Next, we will look at different types of teams from Melee to Magic based that were suggested by other players to help you find one you like. 

Plus, we are going to make it super easy to know what to look for in new summons as well!


FFBE Unit Roles

Visions, warriors from other times and dimensions, summoned to fight along side you. They have 5 basic functions: Physical Damage, Healer, Support, Magic Caster, and Tank. Some units like Cecil can double as a Tank and Healer.  Your team will vary depending on how you like to play, the mission quest, and the Trial Boss. 

Thankfully, there are 5 parties that you can save in FFBE, so I suggest saving 2 of your favorite teams. Setting aside one party just for EXP and then changing the other 2 as needed. You can also set up a Magic Team, Melee Team, Balanced Team, Double Healer or Double Tank Team, and a team that you want farm EXP with.  


FFBE Units: Physical Damagers

What to look for when selecting your Psychical Damager? First the ATK and then, depending on the mission, check what special abilities and or magic that unit has.  Any unit with ATK over 200 will be a good choice. 

If you know you are going to be facing multiple foes, look for a unit that can attack all the enemies at once. Fencer is one of my favorites for her multiple and signal target ATKs. 


On the other hand, if you are facing a Trial Boss like the Devil Chimera, you are going to want CoD since she has elemental resistance against all his attacks. 

Here's a list of all the current Physical Damagers and units that double as a Physical Damager and Support. For these units, use Ifrit to boost their ATK power.

These units will function as your main guns. In other words, they will deal the most amount of damage to your foes. In general, your super rare summons are going to be the most powerful at their 6-Star level. That being said, there are still great 4 and 5-star units. 

If you are just starting out, 4-star units will get you all the way to Kolobos Isle, the 3rd island in the game. Once you get there, you are really going to want 5 and 6-star units.  Rain, Lasswell, Fina, and Lid all go up to 5-Stars, and in the future Rain and Lasswell will go to 6-stars. 

For players that have more experience with the game, you want to aim for all 5 and 6-Star units. The Trial Bosses after the Great Demon are going to be hard or nearly impossible to kill without them. If you don't have a strong 6-Star Physical Damager unit, borrow a friend's. 

FFBE Units: Healers

When it comes to Healers, there are a few abilities that you want to make sure your unit has, such as Cura, Esuna, and the ability to raise your team's SPR.  Esuna will cure anything wrong with a unit and Cura is bare minimum you are going to need to get started since it will recover HP for all units, unlike Cure.

A few player favorites are Refia, Lenna, Tilith, Rosa, and Maria. If you are just starting out, Anzelem is a commonly dropped Magic Caster who can double as a Healer. He's great to use and is covered in our next list.
