I have searched the board, and some reddit, but couldn't find a conclusive answer.
I may or may not try to achieve this, but what would the best specialist setup be around the entire equipment set.
OBV this is different per type, but I'm going to try to show a setup and feedback would be appreciated.( I am not using bow users)

Weapon (non staff users): Professionals(100), Gladiators/ Marksman/ Sprinter * 7 (19998)
Weapon (staff users): Professionals (100), FireFighter (100), Aeronaut (100), Cryophile (100), Tutor * 4 (19998)
Armour1: Lovers (25), Coffee Maker (100), Medicine Man (100), Pharmacist (100), Psychologist (100), Social Worker (100), Gladiators/ Marksman/ Sprinter/Tutor * 2 (19998)
Armour 2 & 3: Gladiators/ Marksman/ Sprinter/Tutor * 8 (19998)

Is this around optimal? Or am I missing something?

"Best" is a relative term and may change depending on your team composition, characters used, items and mechanics available, or even your own perception of what "best" means (e.g. does it involve time management/efficiency like min-maxing approaches often do?). Here are a few points:

  • Regarding stat-boosting specialists, while it looks nice to have them maxed out, they're never really necessary for anything in the game. Early on, Lovers, Armsmasters, Mentors, Professionals, element resistant specialists etc are much more valuable. Later on, you can beat anything by using strategy, leveling (not even perfecting) equipment well enough and exploiting the game's mechanics to its limits.
  • Status protection specialists are rarely useful, as you can find ways to avoid getting inflicted with ailments in the first place (like killing enemies before they can do anything) and even if you do get inflicted, Espoir can easily deal with them.
  • Considering a character at lv 9999 and with max weapon mastery, if you're not using magichange, I believe it's best to leave specialists that don't increase stats directly on weapons (Professionals, elemental/status resistant innocents, Lovers (since it's a % increase) etc), since they have a slightly lower multiplier compared to armor/accessories.
  • While dual-stat specialists are technically better, they take so much more time to max than regular ones that it's almost unreasonable to go exclusively for them.
  • I don't know how many specialists you need, but there might be some waste if you consider the stat cap (40M). Perfected items + matching rarity with max stored levels and weapon mastery can reach almost 20M without any specialists in them (and might even go a little over if you just add the Lovers). If you include in-battle buffs, then you probably don't need any stat boosting specialists, as you'll most likely reach 40M.
  • In addition to the above, Evilities + magichange can also make characters reach the stat cap or make certain stats less relevant (like Rifle Demons' guaranteed hit chance) without any specialists. Something to keep in mind, though, if you do use magichange, you temporarily lose access to all 8 specialists in the original weapon.

I am near the endgame, and this is more theorycrafting then anything else.
So what would you put on weapons then, I already read that lovers are better on armor. hence I put them there (also, magichange)

You might not find the answer very satisfying, but I personally leave my weapons empty (just in the off chance I use magichange). There is way more space for specialists than I need, so I usually just fit them in 1~2 armors/accessories. Everyone I use has Mentors and their Lovers, my main dmg dealers have Professionals, my spellcasters have the elemental specialists, my Armsmasters are on Accelerators so that I can switch it around freely among my characters when the situation calls for it. I do have stat-boosting innocents that I innevitably gathered along the way, but I distributed them somewhat randomly on my characters.

Just put whatever feels right to you, even if the end result might not be exactly what you expect. I have an archer with specialists that inflict poison, sleep and paralysis so she can assist others, but she 1-shots the enemies anyway (and those who don't die immediately are usually bosses that are immune to status effects) so they are practically useless, but I still leave them on her because I like the idea.

It doesn't really matter where you put lovers on since all stats are boosted the same way. If you want someone to wreck everything, a tier 6 Magic Knight will do the job easily. Nothing else is gonna compare at all.
Trust in Qiqi and Klee and good things will happen. Dood.
