About Mio - Zephyr Gameplay

As a Defender, Heavy Guard is the most stable, but at higher levels (around Lv 90 and above), Mio has higher evasive ability (Agility). Blades Upgrade can also be done, which is ultimately recommended as a source of attack damage.

About Sena - Royal Summoner Gameplay

Royal Summoer is great for an Ether Attacker with tons of damage. In order to utilize Ether damage, it is required to be trained by a class that is not an Attacker.

The rankings are horribly inaccurate, especially the tanks.

Last healer is wrong. That's tactician, not strategos.
