Damn I must have pulled like 8x 30 and managed to get everything but Kain and Refia's BSB. Highlight is getting Vanille's five times and Terra OSB three times. Going to save the rest of my pulls for XIV since the rest of the fest is rather mediocre for myself.

Meh it's okay I don't know why but this is the only mobile game were my luck is pure shit tier. They do a good job of making sure I won't ever buy anything though lol. Oh well I will save my last 50 Mythril for a different one because if I see that healing staff again my phone is going in a wall.

My 11 pull got me Thyrus, Minwu's Healing Staff, and Steiner's Tin Armor. All new for me, so that's great.

Would of liked one of the BSBs and/or Terra's OSB, but I'm not gonna chance spending anymore Mythril. The hoarding continues.

Also, I just wanted to ask if this casino roulette thing was a response to Granblue and their event-based loot system. lol

100 gem sparklie! Minwu dupe. Not pulling on this as I have the play sword maxed thyrus which will probably end maxed next week and now a minwu+. Great banner for noobs, though. I have Terra's osb in Jp but never bother with it so haven't used it to its fullest.

Congrats on your OSBs and other stuff! Some insane pulls here on GAF!

We finally got Mind Break! :D
And hitting 4*9999 is so satisfying. I really like mage meta. My team was Vivi(BSB+Meltdown) and Terra(SSB+Chain Firaga) as my fire mages and the rest was two healers and Tyro for dances and I still did insane damage. Hitting 3*9999 with Meltdown is ridiculous! I really need to hone it to R2.

Nvm, I see now...

Looking for advice

I'm powerleveling Terra to 99 now because of her OSB

What's a better way to gear her up? Max MAG or fire boost+?

I have her tiara with 30ish mag or refia glove with fire boost

I'm thinking fire boost wins out because +20% damage OSB is more than +20 mag points for stronger nukes?

Single 11 pull got me Terra OSB and a dupe Plat sword. Not the pull of my dreams or anything but it's nice to have an OSB finally (and Terra's at that). Already have her Tiara and Locke's BSB so shit's gonna BURN. Wish I had some +fire armor though. Done with this OSB Fest outside of dollar pulls regardless, 14 banner one looms...

I'm not F2P

I do $30 for a 11 pull once or twice a month

that's my limit

I've gotten some iTunes cards as Christmas gifts tho so I plan to do extra pulls for osb-fest and XIV

This is considering I used to play mmorpg's and had to pay for subs every month for $15 each game, but quit those since I've been busier and replaced my gaming to mobile in the meantime

I'm thankful for FFRK, it's a fun game and fits my gaming itch when I have school and work 12-16 hours at a time, but it sure can burn ppl with pulls. It's the nature of gatcha mobile games sadly.

Rosetta Stone is +1 augment to an item during upgrade

Does feeding a 5* relic as a material do the same thing as a Rosetta Stone?

I'm still new to this augment stuff and would like to start tinkering with it

Is augment that little hammer that appears on top of the weapons? They are all like 1/20. So we need 19 Rosetta Stones per relic?

If it was me... I wouldnt

My logic = Terra tries to be a hybrid with a more magey type, giving her a blood sword with 160+ MAG stat makes all other rod/staff pointless while also 120 atk as a bonus.

2 swords with 160+ mag can make for some interesting mixed teams and allow some nuking from hybrids like Onion Knight and Tyro.

For example, in d200 multiplayer with Gilgamesh, I like to gear up Onion Knight so he can BSB burst both physical and magic to avoid counters from both Enkidu and Gilgamesh. Enkidu counters magic so physical burst command for that and magic spam on Gilgamesh for 4x3k.

I wasn't going to, but I went all in on Banner 1.

Pull 1:
Tiara (VI)
Healing Staff (II) - dupe

Pull 2:
Platinum Sword (T). I don't really need it now that I have Onion Knight's BSB. There's no place for Ramza in my team.

Pull 3:
Blood Sword (VI)

I'll have to try to figure out how to put Terra in my team now. At the very least, Mote Ifrit should be pretty easy when it opens up again.

To me, it depends on the synergy in the realm. I got two of Luneth's SSB daggers during the last III event, but I've kept them separate because I had no III synergy before that event.

That's why I don't really have any desire for osb's.

Krile's Tomorrow's Promise did 160k damage over the burst duration. Sure it's not 100k up front, but more overall. BURST FOREVER, OSB NEVER!

Generally 4, but 3 is pushing it.

I will probably end up skipping Minfilia 1 since I already have all three Y'shtola relics.

I wouldn't prefer them in general over a BSB due to the sheer utility of the commands meaning less ability use needed as well as their other unique features depending on the BSB in question, but there would have been no "weak" or "very weak" phase to worry about there which can matter a ton. I can only imagine what she will be doing with actual set up. Fire Beam > 2 x 99,999 in a mere 3 turns ain't playing around, and I can realistically do it with something like Lifesiphon/Entrust on OK or even just Ramza BSB Command 2. Wouldn't even be much work since I have Locke with Imperil Fire too.

4. I might do 3 especially if a dupe would be a BSB since those are lower odds than normal relics or dupes are a good stat stick for a realm I am weak in, but Mythril gets better over time as gear improves and new/better SBs come out.

I am pretty happy with this pull, yet also slightly disappointed by circumstance:

First off, no dupe Platinum Sword is a relief.

Second, Vanille's BSB seems fantastic and is my first Burst Medica (I have Dagger of Resolve as my first WM Burst). I can even run full Bursts teams now (Luneth/Faris/Rikku/Yuffie/Jecht/Beatrix/Lightning + Onion + Keeper + Vanille)! However, I'm scared that now I'm "cursed" to go 1/11 on the XIV banner and get Y'shtola's BSB. If that happens, this pull will likely go unused.

Lastly, I'm assuming the best use of Terra's Tiara would be Chain Firaga + Meltdown. However, I don't have any of the Chain -Gas honed (I figured Mage BSBs are the best way to tackle Mage Meta and those just use burst commands). The best build I could think of doing for her is R4 Wrath + R1 Meltdown. Wrath spam -> SSB -> Meltdown x2 -> SSB x2. Would the damage on the back half of this tactic make it viable? Would the best RM be Ace Striker for gauge or a damage boost? If damage, would Devotion for MAG be better than +20% Fire?

Damn, the RWs Terra I've found, even though they are lvl 99,they only do about 70k-80k damage. I can barely get past half Valigarmanda's HP with this, my team can't face him after that. I won't get this Ice Crystal x.x

For me it would depend on if you have enough to take advantage of element stacking. Do you have Imperil Fire? +Fire damage gear? If yes, then I would run with those and mix/match synergy gear until you can comfortably hit 9999, or weaker multi hit BSB commands that add up to 9999 or more (or close to it) in *insert content here* with your BSB commands (or Firagas in your case) each round, since that's the cornerstone of any element stacking team. I've had a fair amount of fun with my Holy one (PCecil + Beatrix and friends) but there's always going to be that one or two bosses that come around that are immune/absorb your team's damage so you need a backup team (f*ck you Yunalesca and Red Soul).

Otherwise, i would just run it like any other SSB/BSB character you want to use and do an Ace Striker type RM + any RW BSB and build up the gauge with the Commands. This is pretty easy with OK's Vessel of Fate since he works with any character and his buff is good anywhere (and there's a lot of OK RWs out there), but you could also run a few other rarer things like Vivi BSB or w/e
