Got 48 Vista copies and skill books so far. Just two more and I can finally do the other colosseum stages for the rewards. This should give me a few more gems for Marco next week.

You know. It took me this long to "understand" that Shiryus leader skill affect other colours too than INT :P.
I have used rainbow slasher parties with other leaders but with Shiryu it was always INT.

Man I feel so dumb :D. Instantly tossed Borsalino to crew :P

Round 4 of the Vista Coliseum is maddening, aghhhh. I've whiffed three times now using a double Enel team and grade A QCK subs. I've tried withering him down using Legend Marco to heal, I've tried the burst strategy using Kuma on the first turn for full matching orbs(the strategy dies once I realize I can't hit Kuma's Perfect or even a Great to save my life), Cavendish can't destroy as a sub because he shuffles away his orb on the next turn, etc.

So my new strategy is what I liked to call 'Murder Murder Slash Kill Destroy'.



I'm not sure if Cavendish will change a block orb on the first turn, so I'll take a hit on the first turn. Second turn, I activate all of my health cutting specials + Cabbage and beat the hell out of him without taking a hit thanks to Leo. Third turn, I activate Lucci to re-orb Cavendish and proceed to murder murder slash kill destroy.

Screw you, Franky >.>

Man. I think my new method will be to run the current FN until I get all the dudes, then double stamina the returning ones. Even if it's garbage drops, you're doing it in half the time and if you get something good, score.

Congrats. Will try to get 50 copies too but my LL team is killing me. Too many stupid game overs for me. I could run the Croc team but I always mess up Franky stage so my LL team is still "safer".

I did it, despite going pants on head stupid and using all of my health cutters on the first turn, Leo included, locking myself into two turns of bad orbs and gimping my first turn of Cavendish's special. I'm a smart guy. Now for Vista.

Finally beat Vista for the first time after countless attempts T_T

Zeenigami's video helped out so much: Double Enel, Orb Manipulator, Damage Reducer, GPU/SW Usopp, QCK beatstick, and finally beat that fucker after like 20 turns LOL

I did my research this time, and I'm pretty confident in this team which I'll be using in about five minutes once my stamina's back to 30.



I need to stall 25 turns total before taking on Vista but I can take as much damage as I like as long as I can take 1+ hit from Franky, as I plan to OTK Vista. The idea here is, once I get to Franky, take a hit on the first turn, activate Cabbage on the next, either KOing him on that same turn or taking another hit(even a 13k hit) to the face and finishing him off on the next turn, as I should have more than enough HP to pull it off.

Once I get to Vista, use both Blackbeard's specials, Sanji's, then Don Chinjao's, and only then use Van Augur to get two DEX orbs on my Blackbeards. Hit all my Perfects, and Vista goes down. Time to test it out.

EDIT: Fucked up by leaving one of the STR giants alive and forgot he boosts all enemies by 20x, not just himself. Got rekt by a turtle :'(

Shiryus skilled and killed trash, then Borsalino did some slot thingies. And as I was going to launch my attack, used last skill and to my surprise Sentomaru's skill killed the bastard.

Oh yeah he needs that big time. If it was him that had the x2 Sta I would be running nothing else for the weekend until Kizaru.

Speaking of which I think the team I'm running for that is going to be Raid Mihawk/IntHawk with Vista and SW Zoro in it for almost full Orb Control. It's the best team Comp I can come up with for taking down Kizaru but the problem is my Doffy and Inthawk's Special Levels are horrible, so I have to figure out how to get around that.

no Koza or 3D2Y Zoro though so I can't make any teams with those guys.

Will get my 50 copies today and then I can farm more Jimbe books. 13 so far. Maxed 3d2y Franky but I only got one skill up for Violet so far lol. And the sockets for my Jabra sucks too...

So as promised, time to choose Legends! The rules are pretty simple, pick a single Legend on the list that hasn't been picked by anybody yet, first come first serve. You'll be listed down to handle updating that Legend's page when it gets picked via RNG to be the next Legend OPTC-GAF discusses. Only one Legend per person, till we get to the point where everyone who picked a Legend has already had their chosen Legend discussed. I'll create a post later on that can either be linked to or added to the main page that keeps track of all the Legend pages. For the sake of fairness, I'll wait a day before claiming a unit myself.


  1. Whitebeard: Four Emperors -
  2. Dark King Rayleigh - Kyou
  3. Boa Hancock: Snake Princess -
  4. Sengoku the Buddha - RedBoot
  5. Shanks, Black Clad Emperor -
  6. Portgas D. Ace, Black Clad Division Commander -
  7. Log Luffy / Monkey D. Luffy, Voyage Dream: Pirate King -
  8. Marco the Phoenix Whitebeard 1st Div. Commander -
  9. Sabo, True Power of the Mera Mera no Mi -
  10. 'Hawk Eyes' Mihawk, World's Strongest Swordsman - MiTYH
  11. Sir Crocodile: Logia, Ex-Warlord of the Sea - GuardianE
  12. Rob Lucci, CP9's Strongest - bobohoro
  13. Heavly Yaksha Donquixote Doflamingo - commish
  14. Knight of the Sea Jinbe, Warlord of the Sea - ExVicis
  15. Donquixote Rosinante -
  16. Man-Eating Bartolomeo -
  17. Trafalgar Law Warlord of the Sea -
  18. Issho / Fujitora - MANUELF
  19. White King Cavendish -
  20. Kuzan / Aokiji -
  21. Borsalino / Kizaru -
  22. Blackbeard, Captain of the Blackbeard Pirates - EMT0
  23. Sakazuki / Akainu -
  24. Roronoa Zoro, Reunion of the Straw Hat Pirates -
  25. Captain Buggy -
  26. Timeskip Luffy / Monkey D. Luffy, Reunion of the Straw Hat Pirates - Neoriceisgood
  27. Hody Jones, the Ghost of Fishman District -
  28. Shirahoshi-hime, Ryugu Kingdom Princess -

We'll roll for the first Legend to be discussed in a few days, till then, sit tight!


---------------------------------------------------

Manga spoilers, don't read unless you've read/seen through at the very least Fishman Island:
It just occurred to me that if we get a 6+ Jinbe, his new title might look something like this - "Jinbe, Straw Hat Pirates Ex-Warlord". I'm going to be very, very pleased when that day comes, not because Jinbe necessarily needs a buff but because I've been waiting for Jinbe as a Strawhat for over 5 years now :^)

Lucci is probably the only one I can currently write something extensive about, so I'll take him.

Tomorrow is Kizaru and I'm at the same place I was in when he first released: I could run him, but I'd need to hit all perfects all the time and that's kinda too stressful on a 60 stamina raid. And while he is an awesome unit, I don't really have too much of a use for him right now.

So yeah, might just run CP9 for more Jabra/Kumadori sockets and Squard books instead. And finally finish Yakuza 0.

Don't let that stop you, sure it's preferable if you've used a Legend a whole bunch, but having some practical experience with a Legend, having spent a lot of time theorycrafting about a Legend, or even just really being fond of a Legend as a character and caring enough to give their page a good effort in compiling our discussions when it's covered is reason enough to choose a Legend.

I've updated the post with all Legends that have been called so far. I think I'll change my rule about me choosing tomorrow to 'Once ten Legends have been picked', because you guys snipe em fast :)

I feel pretty confident discussing Sengoku, Croc, or Marco, so I guess I'll grab Sengoku unless anyone else was heart-set on that.

In other news, I'm done with Vista. 80 copies plus 19 skillbooks (and yes, I'm bothered that I didn't round that out to 20. Had a chest on my final run but it was cola). I'm hoping to max-socket Colo Vista early enough that I can toss a few onto RR Vista for his sockets.

Couldn't have put it better myself. Just because you're tasked with putting it together doesn't mean you have to come up with all of the ideas, we'll all be pitching in to help build it together.

I've seen a pretty common team for Blackbeard + Fuji that use Lao G + Shiki, with Smoker and Gladius for more HP cuts + an orb boost. Every time I see it I cry a little on the inside at my 0 skillup Shiki since it looks soooo good.

I'm going to cheat (a little) and claim that since it's technically tomorrow, I'll go ahead and claim my Legend. Surprise! It's Blackbeard! I know it's not a surprise Time for a commemorative avatar swap.

Finally I think we've got a good number of Legends claimed so far, I didn't think we'd be at ten Legends already. So what I'll do is tomorrow morning, I'll add anyone that posts tonight, add them to the list, and roll for the first Legend that we'll be covering.

I need eight more levels so I should be good with 40 but I might get lazy and just do 30

also turns out bog standard IntHawk/Mihawk/Doffy/3d2y Zoro/Law/Apoo does well so yay. I made two teams with either Mihawk as captain so I can go back and forth getting mixed teams.

I'd recommend using raid Kuma over Apoo. Just make sure you activate Doffy before Kuma. You get the benefit of having sockets that you probably don't have on Apoo and likely a full board of matching orbs. I personally run double Inthawk since the first attack turn and the burst on the second is more than enough to kill him and you get the added benefit of heal and cd sockets from IntHawk if that can help you. You also get the option of activating Zoro on the first turn for added damage and are still able to get a matching orb on him for the second turn, not that it adds all that much to the burst.

I'm a little worried about not being able to do enough damage with Mihawk's 30% cut but if it works it works. I might give it a shot just because it'd be one less annoying step

as far as more sockets go, I CANNOT wait until Mihawk comes back which is a feeling I didn't think I'd ever have again..

Well, kinda can farm Kizaru now, thanks Kyros!



For more stability I would swap Law and 5+ Zoro with SW Zoro and Raid Onigumo, but sadly the latter is still at CD of 20. If I hit my perfects, I need a single orb from Law's shuffle and can clear with that.

Messed up my first run due to forgetting about QCK Pacifista numbing my FC for 9 turns. Since then it's been fine.
Still, will only go for a handful of copies. After I get G-5 Tashigi down to a CD of at least 19, farming Kizaru will be way more relaxed.

Edit: Wait...it seems I could actually run an INTHawk/3D2Y Luffy team with Raidhawk/Doffy/Kyros/SWZoro as subs and clear it with the added benefit of pretty much guaranteed perfects, more health and better sockets.
Edit 2: Yeah works...except when you don't manage to hit a perfect even with the buff. Yeah I'm still kinda bad at this game, it seems.
Edit 3: I could also just run a Mihawk/INTHawk team with 3D2Y Luffy as sub, does a bit more damage with a bit less health.
