Hey guys. I know this has already been asked over the past 2 years, but I was wondering if a definitive setup has been worked out. All the answers on this subject from various sites say different things. Is there a "best" setup when it comes to roles?

Best I would think is...
Victor
Dead Man Walking
Berserk
Emissary of the Blue Sphere
Ace

Fidel
Moonlight Emissary
Attack Advocate
Hothead
Critical Combatant

Victor has Rush gear and spams Bloodstorm Revolution to stay alive forever.
Fidel is constantly using Ethereal Blast to be invincible.

Assuming you're ignoring DMW and Berserk
Here's my opinion, * means definitely best

Fidel
Moonlight Emmisary
Critical Combatant
Whirlwind
Executioner

Miki
Sage*
Savior*
Stamina Stockpiler
X Slayer

Victor
Emissary of the Blue Sphere*
Vanguard
War God
Pulverizer

Fiore
Solar Emissary*
Enchanter*
Master Tactician*
Archivist (If INT is already capped) / Intelligence Indulger (definitely caps INT)*

Emmerson
Interceptor
Stun Supporter
Draugr Monarch
Daemon

Anne
Aggressor
Attack Advocate
Hothead
Gritty Warrior

Relia
Vivifier
Holy Mother*
Terror Knight*
Item Expender*
The fight will never stop.

Awesome dude. Thanks so much! Question though, why do you have "X Slayer" on Miki? She's the healer, so I would think you'd put it on Fidel or whichever character you're controlling?

Also, how do you control the attack when you start a battle with Fidel? Sometimes he does a rising uppercut sword slash, and sometimes he does the slash and kick. I'd prefer to do the slash and kick since it combos better, but I can't figure out how to do it every time when the battle starts.

I pretty much funneled everything through Miki. I gave her Dead Man Walking, and then spammed Explosion, healing when necessary. This kept me from ever having to worry about other characters at all.

Slayer Roles reduce damage from the opposition as well, which makes Miki much harder to kill.

You're probably running into battle (holding O) from long range.
Long range Major has Fidel do that uppercut.

You can also initiate combat with square if you don't want Fidel to rush in first.
I judge everyone based on their sig. If you wanna judge me for that, go ahead.

Ahh I hadn't thought about that. Makes sense.

I actually figured it out. It's all about when you initiate the attack. Just as there are short and long battle skills, you have to be near the opponent (in the "short" range) when you input either a heavy or light attack.
