Is Taylor a Good Esper in Dislyte?

Taylor is all about dealing maximum damage to single-target enemies with his powerful Fighter abilities. He can also give himself a Shield, dispel enemy buffs, chain together takedowns with his passive ability, and grant himself ATK Up and C. RATE Up for huge damage boosts.

His third ability, Soul Blast, is the highlight here. When used, he gains ATK Up and C. RATE Up, attacks one enemy, and dispels all their buffs. His passive, Hero’s Wrath, ensures that killed enemies cannot be revived and give him an additional attack upon killing an enemy. This can chain together to quickly wipe a team, and the revive prevention is a great counter to Espers such as Cecilia and Lauren.

Overall, Taylor is quite a niche choice and struggles to find a home in most PvE content. However, he can be particularly useful in PvP, such as Point War, as a specific counter to Espers that can revive their allies.
