Define "best ones"

My favourites are Adenine and Wulfric

Not counting any with dedicated core crystals:

Vale
Zenobia
Adenine
Nim
Azami
Electra
Perceval
Agate
Perun

Out of the ones with dedicated core crystals, Wulfric and Gerald are absolute beasts. Praxis and Theory are fantastic, and Kasandra has a pretty fun personal sidequest.

I have, but rarely use outside of Merc missions:
Boreas
Ursula(her sidequest is along and time consuming, but she was really strong in early game)
Gorg
Godfrey
Vess(good early, didn't care for her later)
Dagas(guy is an asshole that isn't worth more than having a fire element on Merc missions. He doesn't even have for mastery...)

Herald is in Theosoir. You have to give items at a temple you break into by the rear gate. I recommend giving Herald to Zeke.

Kasandra can be obtained by salvaging at the spot below the bridge in Mor Ardain. Closest point is Abandoned Excavation #2. Some fish comes up and has a core inside if you talked to somebody (I forget who). Great for Morag.

I've been maining Rex, Nia and Tora literally the entire game.

But since getting Morag I was doing Core summons on her, and then the same with Zeke when he joined.

I like Morag the character best of everyone, but I'm meh on using her cause i don't like Brighid's  flame whips

And yeah I know I can get rid of "main" Blades now that Rex can use whoever, but meh

I find just sticking with Rex and Myra my DPS is better than when i have him and Zeke, with Blade Nia for heals

Basically I'm reeeeaaally good DPS but I'm only an okay tank and a shit healer.

Which is true of EverQuest weirdly enough

Zeke with Wulfric, Pandoria and Herald/Zenobia is like an endless supply of DPS. Sometimes I swap Praxis in there because she's faster than The other 2, and you get an extra smasher so you can swap out Roc.

Morag is a really tough evasion tank, and if you give her Electra or Kasandra she's going to keep you alive very consistently.

I tried making one of my Poppi's an evasion tank.  But it seems like its much harder to stack evasion than it is to stack block.  Less options for evasion.

Also, a DLC came out today adding more quests and some free shit.

I didn't see anything new today. Looks like the same stuff from a couple weeks back.

I'm on the final Malos boss fight, but a few hours of playtime before that I switched to Morag as my tank and she is way better at holding aggro than Tora ever was (most likely due to the cores I have and how annoying it is to Tiger Tiger farm for Poppi's shit which I haven't really done) and seems to take way less damage in general. I guess evasion tank isn't a dirty term

She has Brigid, Aegedon (whatever her brother's Blade is called who is also an evasion tank) and I Overdrived her Perceval

But in the second phase Malos had a one shot group kill move and I wiped so I haven't gone back to it yet
