Avenging EagleAvenging Eagle Frontward AOE 5 Auto Attacks Lowers enemy Evasion
Stormy SkiesStormy Skies AOE around user 5 Auto Attacks Heals HP
Hazy FigureHazy Figure AOE around user 4 Auto Attacks Raises Evasion when set on the field

As a Tactician, Taion's primary role will be to provide support and heal allies, so equipping arts that provide various buffs to your party is important. Avenging Eagle in particular, is a very helpful Art since it lowers enemy Evasion allowing you to inflict status effects, such as Break more easily.

Stormy Skies is an absolute must since it allows you to heal allies. Hazy Figure works well in combination with any Zephyr class member in your party and should be used even after you decide to change Taion's class.

Equip Accessories to Improve Healing Abilities

Make sure to equip items related to Healing Arts when using the Tactician class. Since the Tactician's base healing ability is somewhat low, Accessories that improve the effectiveness of Healing Arts will prove useful in the early game.

Prioritize Debuff Arts and Skills

For Taion's Ouroboros you should prioritize learning skills and abilities that focus on debuffs. Taion's Ouroboros, unlike Eunie's, focuses more on applying debuffs to party members so make sure to learn as many as possible to improve his usefulness in combat.
