From the five levels of FO that I had to earn getting to a Protranser, I tried out almost all the TECHNICs that were available at the time of release and I found that the RA TECHNICs were great that they could attack from a decent range. Sort of like a distant sword really, it really helps you out as a female Newman to stay out of danger.
Now that I have enough money, I started up a new character and made him a Force. I got all the TECHNICs that I wanted and was true to the PSO TECHNICs so I got all the basic TECHNICs, Gi TECHNICs and the Ra TECHNICs, all the buffing TECHNICs, all the debuffing TECHNICs and the restorative TECHNICs. Got to Linear Line, tried using the TECHNICs and whoah... WHat a difference from a Protranser 10 it is...
All the simple TECHNICs are great for dealing damage but leave you open to attack from other enemies. The Gi TECHNICs force you to get close and within attacking range of enemies (I think they hit six targets) but at least they stun to an extent so you can continually cast them. Ra TECHNICs are great for hitting from afar like I said earlier but... If there's more than three enemies, the other's will most likely get you.
All in all, I've found that the Ra TECHNICs to be the safest way to attack a large group of enemies while slowly backing off, simple TECHNICs for single enemies or enemies with multiple hit points (since all TECHNICs will only hit one part of the body of an enemy) and the Gi TECHNICs are a real oddity for me. They seem to be at their most powerful at Lv. 30 and yet you're also putting yourself at a great risk putting yourself so close to the enemies. It's almost as bad as the debuffing TECHNICs. If it weren't for the Wwartecher class, I'd say they were a real no-no for Fortetechers unless you were a Cast or a Beast so you can actualy TAKE hits.
I'm not entirely sure on the validity of the Damu TECHNICs since I'm so old fashioned and wanting to SEE what's going on around me. I'm sorry to all TECHNIC users out there who have Dambarta at Lv. 21 or over but when you use it, I can't see anything on my screen. I guess this is your way of getting back when HUs use skills that knock everythign flying everywhere but as a Protranser, I can't see where I'm laying my traps! (Also, a Fortetecher using Dambarta close to a Jarba or a Kamatoze using Dambarta gets really confusing...
