    There are some guides out there about what kizuna is but I never found a guide about what is the best kizuna for each class. I initially compiled this for myself playing JPCC but thought I could share it with everyone. The purpose of this guide is to help players prepare for kizuna now by max leveling the arcana they plan to use when the feature is released.
    NB: Kizuna is not permanent and can be equipped and unequipped in the party menu

    I won't explain what kizuna is or how to use kizuna, there are already guides for that. What I will do is briefly summarize in 2 points:
    1) When an arcana is level 40+ you can use that arcana as kizuna. The receiving arcana will gain a % stat boost of health and attack depending on the level of the kizuna arcana. There is also a further bonus if using an arcana from the same tavern but this is a complex formula I won't get into.
    2) If the kizuna arcana is the same class as the receiving arcana, that arcana will gain a kizuna ability. This guide is to indicate the best abilities per class.

    Note: I have ranked each class to indicate the best abilities, however, this is obviously opinionated rather than fact. The only reason for including a ranking is to give some guidance to players who might not know how to interpret the best abilities for themselves. Initially I will use my opinion for rankings and then adjust the rankings according to the comments by the rest of the community to try and create a more unanimous ranking.

    Notes:
    1. If an arcana is left out, their kizuna ability is just not worth the mention (arcana released as of September 2015 included).
    2. However, the stat boost from a 5* will still be a good option even if the ability is not very good, especially if there is a tavern bonus.
    3. %? means exactly what it is, the percentage of the boost is unknown.
    4. The rankings are based on general use. There are situations such as gold farming where gold boost kizuna will come in handy.

    As previously mentioned, the rankings are opinionated and I appreciate the comments and opinions of others, after which I will adjust the rankings. Please let me know if there are any errors or arcana you feel should be included. I hope this guide helps some players through their trek of v2 ;)

    well, i think he's saying use it on a knight like elza

    though if i had to make a "top" list it would simply be :wizard:isaac (only 3* i MLBed), :archer:tortuga and :archer:faceless. and i don't see isaac anywhere

    I'll update it soon with all the new arcana from Sea Breeze. I'll just wait for tomorrow's announcements in case we have another raft of new arcana coming in.

    I felt 2% doesn't make much of a difference but its better than nothing. There's not much else for a knight sub anyway, I'll add him ;)

    I'll make those changes Maki. I just won't add in arcana that's not released yet. As they get released I'll add them in

    Brood was right, I meant use it on a knight and have Liam in the same party. But I wasn't clear enough, I'll change that

    Faceless is up there. Tortuga just got released, will add him but I don't know how much he increases attack by. Gamerch just says ?%. I'll move up Isach. I didn't put him up there because generally you'll want attack up kizuna and only quests when its required you might need blind immunity. But I guess he deserves to be up there anyway

    oops, i meant tamboril not tortuga

    as for blind immunity... it's suggested that they're the one of the best kizunas worth slapping on :archer::wizard:. playing through quests where there are blind enemies and you really start to notice the difference between having blind immunity and not.

    meanwhile, having +% atk at low values isn't a huge difference because you could just make up that stat boost by equipping a random 4* with a shit ability over a 3* with +3% atk. it's even less noticeable for "on normal attack" or "on long range attack" kizunas because then their boosts don't even factor into specials

    I want to know for the characters that have similar ability, how does the Kizuna work ?
    i.e. Sasha using Mille kizuna, if the enemy is blinded, will her damage be 1.5*1.25 = 1.875x of normal damage?

    And if that's so, is Solo worth mentioning?
    Since Mira can take advantage of slow status, will solo enhance her ability 1's trigger more frequently?

    Wait you CAN Kizuna with characters of a different class and it just won't give the ability? I thought they had to be the same class to Kizuna at all...mind blown.

    Is this accurate that Emma gets an exp Kizuna despite not having an exp skill herself?

    So can you put the same card on the same arcana as a kizuna?
