CCIE nailed it on the head.

For the post part, the only stat anyone (referring to the Global community in general) cares about is ATK; every other stat is irrelevant (why would anything else matter when you can 1-shot anything with enough ATK?).

So, as ATK pots were announced (late of course, lol) as this week's Arena ranking reward, the masses are going insane trying to get them.

As someone who used to place in the top 3k without lapis, you pretty much need:

22 out of 24 orbs per day @ 1.4 average ratio or higher
23 out of 24 orbs per day @ 1.35 average ratio of higher

+ At least 1, if not 2 level-ups for extra arena orbs. Even then, that doesn't guarantee needed to refresh at least once or twice on the last night of the week, based on what everyone else does.

Not playing that game anymore. Doing that will break the player's spirit **hard**. It's a unthankful, near-impossible task to achieve without adjusting your sleep patterns around this game.

Ditto. Thrown in the towel on Dark Fina, who've I've targetted for a very long time. I'm not going to bankrupt myself chasing the rainbow, as at this point in the game, there are enough 4* base units to get the job done with TMs. Bitter pill to swallow, but that's a day in the life of a gacha game. Better to horde tickets for bonus units on the next banner than to throw it all away on what will probably be nothing or little in value.

I don't like a lot of clutter on my machine. But after over 6 years it has it anyway.

If I have to use an app within an app, it's far too much trouble really. Becomes a lot more complicated than it was supposed to be. Thank you though.

I guess now I'm at the point, where I didn't think I'd be, that I don't really have anything to do. I'm bored. My NRG is rotting away. I finished up my lapis runs the other day which is why I wanted to get into Nox. Very few left and they're pains in the asses to get so won't bother unless I ABSOLUTELY need lapis for the little pittence left.

Fun.

I'm pretty sure that CCIE runs macros on Mac via Andy, I believe?

CCIE, can you help her with this? I'm not familiar with the intricacies of macroing on Macs.

Now I hope you guys can get SoM in GL and folks can get him, also because his sprite work is amazing, easily one of the best in FFBE.

This was the one unit I was planning on whaling for when we got it, then Noctis happened and I whaled for him instead. If we don't get SoM collab, I'll still be super bummed out.

I'm really happy to see his enhancements were good. He kinda fell by the wayside for a while in JP, it looks like.

Well, also to be fair, people would chase the ATK pots this week regardless of whatever type of pots were offered at the end of the month. People tend to think very short-term in general.

Yup, you could go through hundreds of tickets and still not get the unit you want, so it's not a good idea to get hung up on a certain unit. I've accepted that I have shit luck and don't expect to be able to pull Orlandu when his banner hits - but if I do, I'll be very happy.

Otherwise, maybe Agrias will get a 6* at some point.

Agrias aka Poorlandu will get a 6* form and great enhancements. She will be a great character.

How are you getting so many pots? Here's a spreadsheet of the pots I've used and still need so many more.

I dunno lucky I guess? I mean you get what 10 or so from each board and I get them pretty much every time I use an arena ticket. Last month almost every fucking daily login was a pot and all the rewards from the raid.

Damn I guess I'm just super unlucky then. Even with clearing like 20 boards so far, using every single arena ticket and those daily logins I still need sooo many pots.

Think that's just you. I haven't maxed a single character with atk pots yet. Firion got a few before Noctis, then he's been eating them all since and not done yet. Ive used every single pot and arena medal so far and could use more of any but magic.

Might've gotten lucky on Arena Summons. I've maxed out ATK on my Noctis, MAG on ExDeath, SPR on Refia and I rank consistently in the 20-30k range.

That's good news. She's been pretty useful for me as a 5* as far as story content goes. From the "Poorlandu" label, I'm guessing there are redundancies between her and Orlandu, but I don't really care. I just really like the sprite and he was a badass in FFT (a proper remake of that game would be heavenly).

Weird I have maxxed out Luneth/Noctis and Lightning with ATK and I still have some left. I may be an exception I guess I still probably wouldn't refill for pots though but that may just be me.

Yeah I think he got lucky with arena summons. He said he gets a pot almost every time he used an arena ticket. I certainly don't get a pot every time, more like ~25% of the time for me.

No difference. Just saves you some leveling and awakening materials if you pull a 4*.

Nope, no difference. You just don't have to waste materials and resources leveling it through the 3* levels.

I just used 20 of my 40 tickets to test it out again. 4 items total 2 SQ 1 tent and a screamroot rest were pots and a few cactuars and 1 gil snapper.

Forgot I need to start feeding my 2nd Noctis and 2nd Luneth ATK pots so I guess I'm back on the pulling train. Fuck I don't want to spend these 5k arena tokens though I kind of just want to see how far I can go before I need to use them.

That is pretty amazing because I am happy if I only get 4 items in a 10-pull. I have had a couple where i got 6-7 items out of 10! So many tents/potions/elixers.

I mean don't get me wrong I have had some item heavy pulls a few times but I generally get pots pots pots. I would prefer the items at this point in most cases.

The great thing about this is the fact many characters that fell to the wayside or weren't great to begin with might be able to become incredible with the proper Ability Enhancements. I hope they do more of this for other chars so everyone can use their favorites.

You can unlock new espers by opening the path to their zones. That's usually done by talking to an NPC that will tell you where to go. For ifrit, you can find info here. https://exviuswiki.com/Ifrit

I've maxxed out 3 units with atk pots and I still have a few leftovers. By the end of the month, I think I'll be able to max 3-4 more units with the atk pots rewards. Also, I'm now sitting at 4k Arena Medals and 40+ Arena Tickets.

yeah, it won't let you waste pots. good question, fair worry. fwiw it also won't let you 'overshoot' with gigantaurs either.

in both cases when you select something that would put it one past over the max, it'll grey out the option so you can't select it.

Very interesting, more than 10 million damage.
