    In terms of design my least favorite is Lady Luck as it looks so very, very cheap. In terms of actual usefulness my least favorite is the Songstress. I never had reason to use it.

    Gunner - I liked the idea of guns, but I never had a use for this dressphere.

    Black Mage - I hated this dressphere. It took too damn long to cast spells even after you had learned both Black Magic Levels, because for some reason the spells (as long as other abilities) seemed very delayed in this game.

    Trainer (Yuna and Rikku) - These stupid animals ran slow, took the longest path to the enemy, and didn't do very much damage. Paine's bird, Flurry, was actually useful; it had good abilities (HP Flurry, Recovery Flurry, Flurry Speed, and Flurry Guard) and it could fly over everything to get to the enemy to attack. Despite these few benefits, I didn't like this dressphere.
    Your random PM's are loved.

    I would have to say Lady Luck. However I have to agree with Erebus on the songstress.

    I found, like many others, the Songstress to be the most useless. I felt bad that all of the other dress spheres were being used except for that one. I wish LeBlanc could've kept it... I wouldn't mind.

    I think you all are missing the point, when it comes to bosses; this one never works; SONGSTRESS.

    The Songstress' songs are pretty good, and Dirty Dancing was pretty good. I think the Festival-Goer sucks the most. :/

    I agree with the general sentiment that Black Mage was sucky-- Black Magic just wasn't very useful in this game. non-canon, you'll have to expalain for those of us who don't have International and Last Mission exactly what was so lame about Festival-Goer.

    Well, Festival-Goer is Trainer-esque, with a few odd things going on.

    Yuna is an offensive spellcaster, but her "toss a clog at the target" spells are unreliable since the effect is a tad random (The Fire one will cast one of the fire black mage spells at random at the target and might cast Firaga at two enemies.). Sure, you might get Ultima, might being the key word.

    Rikku is an elemental based physical attacker, in lieu of Swordplay, but they hit three times at random.

    Paine is an aliment based physical attacker, like Wakka. So yeah...

    So there you have it, Festival-Gore. You get it way early in the game though, so it could be useful as a stand-in.

    I wasn't crazy about the trainer sphere. However...my hatred for Lady Luck and Songstress over weighed that. I didn't see what was so useful about LL...both outfits and ability sucked

    You obviously never mastered the Pause / Random Reels / all 777 trick. And I consider Lady Luck worth its weight just for double EXP. No, sorry, but that one had a lot of useful abilities.

    If Rikku had a different sword I'd love her Dark Knight outfit. As is, I hate it immensely.
    It's not even a fucking sword. It's a big piece of metal with...a claw thingy at the end.

    You're totally right about the Black Mage being forced to use MP and no Flare, but my least favorite was definitely Thief.
    Almost completely useless, as well as Songstress.

    black mage there no flare,meteo and ultima that suck mastering is really long
    special dress strong but it very weak in defense
    dark knight very slow even you use haste still slow
    alchemist more better than white mage but when you get magic damage that terrible

    the strongest and dependable is gun mage(can use ultima weapon skill), and samurai(can kill enemy even he use hero drink/invincible status)

    For me, Black Mage, hands down. Normally Black Magic is cool but in this game it was pretty lame in how limited that dressphere was and how for the majority of the time mastering it you're forced to use MP and can't attack. At least the White Mage could Pray. Besides, what kind of Black Mage doesn't learn Flare or Ultima? That seemed to be only available via GG's. IIRC every single technique from this dressphere was elemental.
    Yes! All of this exactly. Couldn't agree more - and instead, Lady Luck gets these abilities, which is lame for so many reasons.
