Syntesis - Tactics

General Tactics

Syntesis is a magician and typically has low defense and a poor attack value, but strong magical powers. Keep Syntesis protected by your other characters and don't let the enemy gang up on her. Develop friendships with characters like Rock and Robby who will give her defence support so that she can survive harder attacks. Make sure you use all her MP in a battle as magic attacks generally give more experience than physical attacks.

Magic and Magic Resistance

Syntesis' magic is 100% offensive. Blaze serves well as a low cost attack spell while Spark and Soul Steal are more expensive but can do more damage. Blaze is useful for attacking multiple enemies early in the game but Spark takes over as the spell of choice for area attacks later on. Use Spark 3 for attacking more than 2 enemies and use Blaze 4 when attacking a single character. Soul Steal is potentially Syntesis' most powerful spell as it can kill instantly, however at level 1 it isn't particularly useful since it only targets a single enemy. At level 2, Soul Steal is deadly if targetted against multiple enemies (so long as they don't have super high luck values) as chances are at least 1 of them will be killed instantly. Since Soul Steal is more effective against enemies with low luck values, and when Syntesis has a higher luck value herself, judge your targets wisely on their luck statistic.
