Final Fantasy Brave Exvius |OT5| Our Golden Anniversary Brings Us Hope

StarVigil, don't take it as me being an asshole, but...
have you some factual attachment to that account?
because.. it's bad... it's really bad...
it's almost, ALMOST (no 5* starter, only 4* agrias, snow and rosa), as bad as mine when i started, and i suffered a LOT early on...
 
Haven't had much time to play today.

I used 10 ticket and did a 10+1 pull for Ayaka.... Sadly I didn't get her.

I saw via the liveticker function and my friendlist that some of us got lucky though... So congrats to everyone who pulled her, especially the people who didn't have Tillith before... Yeah Rixa I saw your Ayaka... She is crazy with +7k HP and over 500spr... So good.

PS. Is it worth to farm the current event for ability awakening crystals or are the regular Story events better for farming them? Only did a single run but it seems like only the boss can drop crystals.
Thanks, sharing it for Bonkeng, he has some trial plans and his Ayaka is not ready (LB maxing it).

For the lols, wanted to test what happens if I change MoL & EHS to hp stuff. I lose the elemental coverage and gain some hp (hp pots not maxed). Not going to do it, but would be kinda bulky healer :D



I rather keep elemental coverage up.
 
I have a couple Malboro questions if anyone can help.

What's the ideal setzer set up for the battle? I know Double Dice is what people use, but what equips? Are Double Dice able to hit twice with dual wield? Are they effected by killers, elements ect? If I wanted to deck out my setzer, what's his bis for it?

Also, I read you could close the game if Malboro devours someone, and it can glitch and prevent him from using the attack again. Is this true?
 
Ok, my gacha is 100% broken, i got OK on his banner in about 5 pulls, got Ayaka on my second damn pull, spend 20 more tickets trying to get fire katana bro, AND GOT ANOTHER AYAKA AND OK.

I only wanted a 3* :<
 
Congrats to all the new Ayaka owners!

Still successfully resisting the urge to multipull on this one, so far.

Today's daily and 1 = Clyne and Wind Veritas (new).

Ahh, son of a.... Wind Veritas has evaded me for ages for Elza. And right when I was about to finish a 100% moogle for Prodigy Goggles or Ignorance for Rikku so I could finally do the harder trials.

/firstworldproblems

this event is pretty great.
Yeah, this is the most laid back event in a long time. Can just tap auto and collect the needed rewards as ELT isn't needed to farm candy components.
 
So are you guys actually farming this event?

I had enough from doing everything once that I could buy all three tickets, and that was me done.

Just using NRG on Story at the moment. Nice to have a quiet week.

My Setzer had a fire weapon and second knife so Double Dice would hit twice and so I hit with Fire dmg.

For other Equip I used Sun Barrette for Demon Killer dmg. Then for Materia I used Plant Killer, Demon Killer and 2x poach for more Plant Killer dmg.

Also yes, you can close and restart.
 
Made s 10+1 pull and 5 tickets got 4! Of that new Samurai. Sucks
But I got 2 Rikku which I didn't have and Veritas of the Dark which I didn't have so I'm still happy.
 
Just reached a new step for my stack.


What, this game isn't called Lapis Hoarding Simulator?! S2 Sakura please come fast!

Also, free Ramza now! After one full year it's way past tile for him to get his enhancements!

I can't even. That's far more restraint than I, and most would consider me to be quite stingy regarding resources expenditures.
 
Just for all of those hurting such as myself...

Ramza is officially 1-year old today.

No enhancements in sight.
Also, free Ramza now! After one full year it's way past tile for him to get his enhancements!
Looking at the release schedule leak, I can't see where Ramza's enhancments would even fit into the schedule.

We know it's not in October from the leaks.
November's date wouldn't work because that would be during Roy's banner, which makes that an automatic no.

December... maybe... if he's sandwiched in with the Christmas units for some reason. Otherwise, we're probably looking at January before Ramza's enhancements shows up at a minimum.


On that note.... one of the rewards from Fan Festa last night was Kingslaive event currency. Where in the universe can fit into the schedule anywhere? The only place this can possibly go is in the "Enhanced Noctis" event scheduled for mid-November, right before the Black Friday madness starts.
 
To circle back to him.

It’s insane to know that going by leaks, Ramza may still be a month or more away.


He is literally going to be outdated by the time he arrives or even worse, before then.

Not sure why they are doing this. It’s atill aggravating me because he’s been riding the bench and literally useless as a unit for so long now.


Also as stated above me, Roy is right around the corner, so Ramza likely isn’t even getting enhancements in the short term.

He IS going to be outdated by the time his Enhancements come. In fact, I’m almost expecting Lunera to get enhanced before he does.
 
Something interesting with S2 Fina if we do get that leaked one handed "bow" for Halloween

Code:
LB Fill Rate +100% & +50% SPR when equipped with Staff & +50% SPR when equipped with Bow


Will have to sacrifice one slot for Dual Wield though.

But that's the trend with most enhancements for Global. Outside of a bringing someone obscure to the forefront (like Soleil), enhancements bring an older unit back to close to reasonable parity with the meta. Enhancements don't place a unit ahead of the fresh banner units, because if Gumi has learned one thing from Alim in JP, it is that the priority should always be to pull for new units over enhancing old ones (doubly/triply so if that unit is a known JP chase unit).

Given that Batch 7 for Global (Halloween) replaces the DQ batch for JP, and Batch 8 in JP was mostly the FF9 unit "fix" (which should show up pretty much as designed, outside of Rem who is already here), Lunera's enhancements appeared in Batch 9, which would be in Decemeber.

As Lunera's song reaches +90% to all stats, versus Ramza's +100% to all stats, it definitely falls into the realm of possibility that she will receive her enhancements before Ramza does. Especially so, as Lunera is still generally an unknown, while everyone wants Ramza, which historically has tended to favor unknowns receiving enhancements on Global before known JP chase units.

EDIT: Also, given the banner > enhancement rule mentioned above, neither Lunera, nor Ramza's enhancements would arrive before Roy's banner in November (who gets +110% to all stats when singing). Thus, all the previous rules would be upheld. Roy (110%) is the fresh banner unit, who is more potent then the enhanced units Lunera (90%) and Ramza (100%). After the "clearing period" for Roy, their enhancements should become available in December or January as consolation prizes. Fits too perfectly :/
 
.....



You guys are like 1000 times luckier than you might think. The ones even getting off-banner rainbows, you too are pretty lucky.



Long story short, $500 later and I did get an Ayaka.



I'm lucky to say this doesn't really hurt me financially at all, but damn man.




3 rainbows total: Delita, Reberta, Ayaka.




Edit: I'll be skipping Cloud and everything else, including limited and bonus units for a while. I imagine the next banner I pull on will be Sage Sakura, which should be after the 3% change.
Spent nearly the same chasing Ayaka as well.

I ended up with 4 rainbows before Ayaka showed up.

Prische, OK, Emperor, Ayaka
 
So are you guys actually farming this event?

I had enough from doing everything once that I could buy all three tickets, and that was me done.

Just using NRG on Story at the moment. Nice to have a quiet week.
Purecrysts are a limited resource and gigancrysts are a difficult resource to farm. Also I need black crysts for Emperor's enhancements because I used all them on Dark Fina thinking that they would use power which I've been aggressively farming. At least I can enhance Agrias with little guilt now.

edit: Goddamn Kourio. I thought I was the GAF hoard king. You put my 71k lapis/194 tix/3 4*tix to shame.

This is the easiest T4/5 cryst farm event in the history of forever for this game. Given how trivial it is to create memory candy, and how cheap the crysts are, this is a compete no-brainer.

Folks on Reddit have already deduced that everyone should be able to get everything with natural energy by next week's event flip on Friday. If you are looking only at crysts, 3-4 days on natural energy only. If you are willing to drop a few refreshes on it, you can clean out everything today or tomorrow at worst.

You'll be back to TM farming before you know it, even you do clean out the Minister of Moogles completely.

Right on ty. I'm going to give this a go sometime today.

What stage exactly are people running? I see you need two ingredients to make candy, and i see the moogle to exchange candy for stuff. But where do I farm?

So I've been running the Ayaka 10 and 15 nrg stages, and getting 3-4 ingredients to craft candies from each run. Is this as good as it gets?
 
I'm weak, I decided to not quit and pulled some more, and I've come to the conclusion that this game just doesn't want me to have Ayaka...

Off banner Rainbows:
Trance Terra (dupe)
Knight Delita
Fryevia x2

Fuuuuuuck. I'm so so sorry man. Please try to stop spending at this point. People brute force pulls but at this point you just gotta walk away.

Sugar comes from Ayaka's Request 1, Water from Ayaka's Request 2.

AR-1 is roughly INT difficult, AR-2 is ADV tier. Super easily auto-able. ELT doesn't need to be touched at all ever, outside of first-time clears.

Bring your Lockes(Pod 153s) and Xons, as one floor per dungeon drops the materials (2 mobs on that floor, 1 base + 1 rare material drop per mob). Expect 2-4 (usually 3 if you're bringing bonus drop units) materials per run.

Ouch.

But damn, I'm jelly of the TT and the 2x Fryevias though.

T-minus ~14-21 days before you pull her accidentally as a random daily. Because, Gumi master-tier logic at work.
 
Right on ty. I'm going to give this a go sometime today.
I don't know if it's me or gumi fixed it, but resetting now doesn't prevent the devour trick. Just a heads up in case you plan on doing this as part of your team building.

That's a great haul tbh. Dupe TT and Lunera are great, KD and FV are top tier units. 2 Fryevia is epic.

Yes, Ayaka is probably better individually. But those are legit good pulls you have. For only $160. I'd honestly be super happy pulling those units.
 
Decided to do some pulls, half summon and daily login ticket netted me nada.
Against my wishes I bought some lapies and got lucky on the last 2 pulls(Emperor and Ayaka).
I was thinking about feeding the 100% tm to emperor for his malice. Any suggestions?

All in all I'm not unhappy about the pulls, they definitely could have been a LOT worse. It's just the desire for Ayaka and the ridiculousness of the odds of not getting her
 
15 tickets.
all 3* 2 Kamui/1Yuri.
finally got me the 4* mag sword girl.

seeing all the xxx get Ayaka/awakening Ayaka to 6* sure making people jelly..

and then this keep repeating.



Congratz on your 20th Krile Dandte!!

edit: wtf a second later i ticket....
Hehe, well i reached the point where i accept that rng can be on my side (DV and old man on the same pull) or against me like this banner, the nier banner or the ok banner. Did a few more pulls an ended up with more cecil, cod and other for 512 day old units.

I bought two bundles with Amazon coins, about $160. Never again

If the banner to off banner rainbow rate is truly 50/50, the odds of getting 6 off banner rainbows is 0.015625%. I can't help but laugh at how absurd that is
Wait what...first congrats, but did you really got all of these units for 160$? I mean one big pack contains 18k lapis right? Two of these would be 36k, which means 7 multipulls. 6 Rainbows in 7 Multipulls...6 Rainbows in 77 Pulls is godly luck, especially not a single one is troll rainbow. This is amazing...and made me depressed haha.
 
Another 5k pull to consider. Do it now, or wait for the FFIV event cause I'm a sucker when it comes to FFIV.

Randomly got a rainbow pull with Ramza earlier today for the 250.
 
Okay...so who on Gaf didn't got Ayaka aside me..this feels like antoher Orlandeau/ling/Noctis/Zyrus/Ashe situation. It feels like Gaf was amazingly lucky, especially with low amount of resources used...except certain persons.

Yep, I spent my stash of 45k lapis, over 30 regular tickets, and 1 4* ticket yesterday, and got ZERO rainbows. Today they were raining from the sky. The first pull was a triple rainbow (Trance Terra, Knight Delita, and Fryevia)

Me, I spent 10k lapis and ~20 tickets so far. Probably won't waste any more.
