Is Li Ling a Good Esper in Dislyte?

Though there are definitely better 5* Espers that you can acquire throughout the game, Li Ling is still one of the most powerful Fighters and can be utilized incredibly effectively. Plus, you’re incredibly likely to have him pretty much as soon as you start the game, and so he’ll definitely be one of your best through much of Dislyte.

While you’ll likely eventually get some more powerful DPS Espers, Li Ling is particularly helpful for new players in that he’s a very simple Esper – he doesn’t need too much buffing to achieve his full potential and his abilities are very effective but also very straight forward. I’d definitely focus on trying to improve him as much as possible, and this guide should be pretty helpful for that!

Li Ling Equipment

Li Ling’s main focus is always DPS, enabled by his attack-based Captain ability, though his abilities can also enable him to heal himself and take AP from his opponents. He isn’t too flimsy and isn’t too hard to make him deal a significant amount of damage due to his simple skills and the early point at which you can get him, and this makes him an incredibly viable Esper.

Because of this, Equipment Sets geared towards taking advantage of this damage are most viable:

  • Nether: 35% of damage dealt heals the user
  • War: +30% ATK
  • Thunder: C. DMG +50% and an extra +30% when attacking Bosses
  • Fiery: +20% C. RATE

Lastly, Li Ling’s Equipment characteristics should prioritize C. DMG and ATK/ATK%.
