Fast tip. Don't level your Mag with items, only devices. You get devices through Photon Drops, which are semi-rare. But a mistake on a Mag can essentially 'brick' your Mag without a lot of side grinding. Find a guide on what to level for your class, since depending on what you're doing putting in the wrong skills can 'brick' your skill list the same way. Only way to really fix these issues is to pay to fix them, or do a ton of grinding.. outside of that.. nothing else really.
You can rely on (make use of.) feeding 'items' to your Mag you just need to keep in mind what particular item raises which stats, and which items decreases the bar for certain ones. As long as you know what to give them you're fine. Yes, it will take (way) longer feeding them anything else than Stat Devices. But my advice would be not to worry about fast feeding your Mag, it doesn't need to be level 200 on Day 1. Take your time.
Best method overall, feeding items and make use of Stat Devices. Don't need to exclude one or the other.
A mistake in feeding them the wrong stats can indeed be undone without spending any real money. For those who do not know, there is an item in the Excube shop called "Mag Level Down Device" which let you undo a stat on your Mag. It takes 5 Excubes to undo a stat. (When it was 50 Excubes per mistake, it indeed could be seen as a 'ton of grinding'. But now with it being 5 Excubes, not that much of a grind in my opinion but I guess it's rather subjective.)
With the current content, especially with the Mining Base Urgent Quests. 10☆ and 11☆ weapons are plentiful, to convert into Excubes. Of course these UQ's should be played with 250% Rare Drop Boosters, which in the end pays for themselves considering that 250% Rare Drop Boosters only costs 6 Excubes. A single Mining Base UQ run with a 250% Rare Drop Booster gives you on low average 8x 10-11☆ Weapons. A 250% Rare Drop Booster will in most unlucky cases last 2 runs.
Excubes will come by as easy and natural as breathing. Before you know it you're sitting on 1000 Excubes.
Wrong skills on your Skill Trees is indeed problematic for now. Cause the only reliable method to reset your Skill Trees is through paying AC. There is an option to reset your Skill Trees through the use of a "Skill Tree Reset Pass". (For those reading this and don't know, it resets all your Skill Trees.) In the JP version, these passes are periodically given to the players for free.
In the NA version, they have not yet been "periodically" distributed free of charge to the players. Will they ever going to? No idea, too early to tell.
- Resetting Skill Tree = Problematic. (As of right now.)
- Undo mistakes on Mag = Easy.
