More questions :
  • Any open guilds?
  • Which the 'idea' for saving vs fodder'ing SSS? I have a ton of lower rarity stuff, but not sure which SSS are safe to use for limit breaking.
  • Who should I take w/ my Boden? Is there any reason I wouldn't take Drunken Falcon guy? The guide I'm looking over said to take the Arrow Trigger, but I have no idea why. fwiw, I'm a Paladin as well.

You can try joining the guild I'm in, Absorenity. It has 1000 GB minimum combined (so like you can do 500 each of Hero and Buster League), which is really easy to make considering picking 3 other top guildies can pretty much carry you.

Certain deities require a particular SSS unit. They are the Awakened deities. You'll want to save the SSS units that you want to make their Awakened versions of. There's also the fact that to make a deity, the SSS unit you're deifying has to be the same class, though that's obvious enough. No other reason to save an SSS as opposed to foddering it.

You're talking about the free Boden unit you get, right? Yeah, Falcon is the best unit to get. The guide you're using must be really outdated.

Getting Falcon and then getting cooldown reduction gear on him is a huge upgrade in survivability.

If you go in to the ally menu and look at Deities/Busters and click the create button, it will show you everything you need (allies, essences, money) to create them. That way you can kinda plan out what you're saving and using as fodder. As far as I'm concerned, anything other than SSS is automatically fodder. I always use SS to enhance SSS's, but I'm sure others will say to use S's. I just hate wasting time/money/essences on failed attempts.

Whew, finally got to 50 Titan essences, was able to craft my transcended essences, and now have a T. Greysoul +0.

It's going to take forever to max him, it seems. 3 SSS class fodder and 20 of the combined essences to even get to +1. Damn Dragon Blaze, you keep upping that grind game.

*Edit* holy shit, just got him to level 104 and he single handedly took my Hydra score from 138~mil to ~750 mil at +0.

Well, I'm satisfied with that upgrade...

Jesus. Alright, I'll continue grinding LE to get T. Bloodwind up to snuff (only need to Ult Ouranos). I really want to max Helios first, but it seems I'm better off focusing on BW.

now i've got all the needed money, but i need an incredible amount of LE to ult ouranos..

as for tbloodwind, is it worth to include him into WB teams even unehnanced?
I'm really low on essences, and I don't know if it's worth to buy them or farm them via shoes...

If Greysoul is any metric to go by, the Transcended Dracos are insane even at +0. I went up 600 million on Hydra with no other change to my party. He wasn't even max level, I think that was around level 102 or something.

Farm red stages on any zone that drops either equipment or essences that you need, preferably both. You can see what drops from that zone's "Rewards" button at the bottom when you're selecting stages. Keep in mind, the good stuff is always Red stages only.

perfect..
I've now around 30 "trash" sss left..
it should be enough to ult ouranos (it's +8, so 1 to max, and then ult) hence more than enough leftover for bloodwind..
i have to farm all the stuff for the essences though, which is a royal pain..

I could theoritically buy them, but i only have 4800 crystal, and i'd rather keep a staple amount for shoes//1+1 :|

Wait for patch - there's Shrine of Shabelle coming so we will get bonus to essence rates in it.

Imho +0 draco won't outperform ult Tyr and Sasha but I only have BA and DC so I haven't tested it personally.

still, my part is currently
ult sasha
ult tyr
+0 omega
+2 iota
mc (mag priest with epsilon+0 on death or warrior with db +0)..
so assumedly, when i don't need mc priest, I might as well rock archer mc with ouranos ult?
or i can switch to pally mc using omega and throw in the tdraco of choice (bloodwind)

in any possible puzzle combination, a draco will at worse leave my score unchanged, at best increase it :)
my only gripe is that i've been inactive for quite some time (almost one year...) so I did not have any resource to invest into giants, lest i risked doing a "so-so" giants innuendo and then skip completely t-dracos..
if they continue with this speed, i expect t-angels right around the corner....

secondary note... 1500 jar for the 5sss worth it?
technically with 1800 i get 4 sss and a shitload of other s//ss fodder, so i'm wondering whether it actually made sense..

We're getting a new raid tomorrow. If you can get to it, it will have the best sets and you should dump all tickets there.

Reading up on changes. I'm not against nerfing units to deal with power creep. What did make me raise my eyebrow was seeing something akin to daily dungeon. Stuff you can only farm on a particular day. I have always hated that in other games because my schedule slowly starts revolving around the game vs. game accommodating to my schedule. So that's iffy. But this update is months away so for now I'm taking wait and see approach.


Anyone here excels in world bosses? I managed to score more 250 bil with max bloodwind. Sitting on the edge of top 100 but ever so far away. Currently rocking dot plus piercing damage on him, cdr on all my pallies, and cdr plus dot on everyone else. I feel like I'm missing some important weapon effect for WB.

Nope, take a look at the weekly task. It says "except nightmare, guild related"

Better, not really. You get more efficiency by grinding stages when the dungeon drop buffs are on though. The side effect to grinding them is that you also get gold, which you also need a lot of. If you have gold + % accessories, put it on, buy the auto-salvage pet, and just grind while you're at work/not paying attention.

Full buff +shabelle weekend turned out pretty awesome. I've got my t.DC to Max, deified and Ulted Rollo and Windlune and created Thanatos +2.

After that I'm completely out of SSS so I'll have to switch to farming 4-3 chapter to make as many trans essences as possible. At least in next few 3 waves I only need Ravengale+0 and Kymael+0.

How do you AFK farm 1400 shoes without filling inventory? I use salvage pet, but those fucking cards always fill my inventory and cause it to stop after a few hundred.

Why not Minos?



On grinding front it is clear to me now that it takes about 3.5 to 4 weeks to get enough trans essences to go from making a trans char to maxing it. SSS allies aren't an issue. They will come just from all the essence grinding. This seems about right. A few months ago we were experiencing the same with keys. Took about a month to make one.

Well at least most of angels can be skipped.

But I really regret not taking Ragnarok for my free buster - with ch5 revolution to stats and skills Lly drops to bottom tier while Gaela holds her position better and would be better in pvp.

I'm still undecided on Ravengale - I can't max her and I already own all support keys at Ult so I wonder if there's much sense in making her and keeping at +0. I could use to essence to upgrade t.BA faster. I guess I'll wait to see Golem scores and if I'm still in 5% I'll ignore her.
