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

Maybe I'll go do that challenge to practice. I'm really tired of getting to the last stage and having him do the "angry awoken" or whatever and 1 shotting my whole team.
I think the mechanic is:

Drifting off... - only use LB, nomral attacks and abilities to deal damager
Dozing off... - only use espers and spells to deal damage

If you use the other then he uses 3x Thunderous Meteor (7x magic damage) instead of 2x Meteor (2.93x magic damage).
 
I feel like all banner units should go to 6 star.
Even if, statwise, a 3 star banner unit ends up inferior to a 5 star base, it's pretty wack that there are banner units that are unusable.
For example:
This is as good as I can make Skaha, trying to balance out all her stats:


I guess her attack is "ok", but her hp and def means she dies by just glancing at her angrily.
Now equipping 5 star base Reberta with nearly same things (+shield) results in:


That's a pretty sizeable difference in survivability, especially after being buffed by someone like Nichol.
So obviously the 3 star is inferior to the 5 star, but they don't even get the chance to be somewhat competent/usable by limiting them to 5 star max.
Just a bit of a waste if you ask me.

On another note, Malphasie looks like she would fit right in next to Jensen and Rinoa on my team, so I'm going to spend some resources to try and get her.
 
Did a few pulls because I had almost 600 tickets. 22 tickets on Summer got an OK and a Summer Nichol. Then I tried to ride the wave of good luck with 3x30% and 3x10% on Hyoh. Rainbow -> Fryevia.

Not Hyoh, but Fryevia is 7* ready now, for whatever mystery that entails.

I still have 89 4* tickets. The EV of banner 5*s for that many is 3.338. I might try that on the Hyoh banner, I'm feeling coerced into getting him because that's all I see on my friends list.

Yea I realized too late that it was a LB I was using on the wrong turn (that didn't hit him, it was just a buffing LB) was causing my wipes. What a stupid mechanic. I didn't manage to try again before the quests disappeared, what a bummer.

Yep, 3* bases are entirely worthless now, which is why I think they need to move them to the FP pool after their banner ends. Even most of the TMs are completely outdated now, so it's not like it'd stop players from spending money or anything. Really ridiculous that they're still in the premium pool.

Anyway, congrats on the great pulls Basoes and Evangd!

I got crap on the on-banner 10+1, but I did get my 7th Cloud and 3rd Noctis on the 10+1 ticket. I'd love a 7* Malphasie but I'm going to wait for unit reviews to come in before I spend any resources. Besides, she's not limited so I'm sure eventually I'll get a copy or two.
 
Oh shit. I tried the spinning the wheel thing...I recommend not doing it. It asked me to download some slots game....
There's a small X that appears, after like 30s, in the upper corner of most stuff there, you click it it closes the ad. Think there was one game I had to play a bit, but overall pretty good stuff already got like 150 total.
 
Hmm genji glove, rikku's pouch or fixed dice?
Tough choice. Ironically Genji Glove is going to be good for your mages now that we're in TDH meta. The pouch I rarely find myself using, it was great for a while though. Dice you need some very specific builds to utilize. If you don't have a throwing weapons user that can imbue elements (Tidus, Nyx, maybe Victor?)and some True Doublehand gear, just pass on that one for now.

I'm looking forward to going back through and doing some of these challenge quests and 3* Espers now that there's no Mog King to grind. Up first is Golem 3*. Looks like I need to dust off Earth Vertias.

I feel like this is a way for them to add ads to the game without being in your face about it. These ads are just random things that don't matter and seems kinda scummy to me. But whatever. I guess people aren't paying like they used to so they gotta bring in some cash in whatever way they can.
 
Jesus christ thank god I got malphasie from the step up, was so worried I would get circe instead, grinding that much lapis is a bitch; will prolly use my ticket to get a second one of her.

Also, the 3* diabolos fight is either super dumb, or I don't get it. What's the point of buffing to survive, if he can just decide to dispel and kill the party?

Congrats! I went ahead with the step-up as well since I read the reviews and skill descriptions, got 2 of her, an Aloha Lasswell, 2nd Nalu, 3rd Beatrix. Not a bad haul, plus I finished off the TM for Agni's Blade for Hyoh. I think I'm done pulling units for a long while now. I feasibly have everything I need for quite a long time. Going to UoC my 2nd Eiko as soon as she's available.

Nice pulls, I wasn't so lucky, which is why I got worried on the last step.
Got Malphasie and awakened Rain, and dark knight Cecil from the 10% ticket; Rain is cool, but I have no use for Cecil.
I think at this point I can safely just wait for the Nier banner to return, so I won't be pulling any time soon again either.
 
1083 Summons for the 3rd Anniversary in JP for me.

I ended up with 150+ EX tickets and a total of 7 5-stars. Not a bad haul and it's only half of my potential tickets this month. Got a blank/container moogle too and a few UoC tickets.

Yea you and I both need to concentrate on clearing trials now for some of that gear. I am so, so behind on trials right now. A.Rain is a great magic cover tank for your team.

Dang, congrats Shouta. It's insane how generous JP is, but I always forget to take into account the timeline and how much further ahead you guys are. Either way, sounds like you had a killer anniversary.

The next character I really want is Jecht, because he's always been a favorite of mine. I'm so glad he's actually good in this game.
 
Looks like GL is getting the last FFXV banner this week, with Ignis. Good news is that old FFXV units get a drop bonus, bad news is that we don't get Noctis/Aranea/Gladious 7*s to go along with it.
 
I got Trance Terra...finally! Ended up using my Select Tickets to get another one and now 7* Trance Terra!! Yes! Can't get any other 5* units, but that's okay. Trance Terra pretty much smashes this raid. I want to get Malphasie, but no luck so far. Been playing a whole lot of Dragalia Lost so not sure if I want to continue playing this one. We'll see in the next few weeks after the honeymoon period for Dragalia Lost wears off. I haven't had much luck with this game recently and it's just not that fun to play.
 
It's probably a bit late to remind everyone now, but there's a Water Greatsword (currently the only one in GL) that you can make in the summertime event. Worth going for if you've been running the exploration, especially if you plan on investing into any chaining physical water units. (Tidus, Jecht, etc). You'll only be able to craft it with summer farmable materials.
 
Quick question. I tried to login just now to get my daily rewards but when i pressed on the stitle screen they suddendly asked for my facebook account I can not even remember anymore.. Am I now fucked until I can remember the account i used or is there a way to change this?

Are you using a fake FB account to log in to the game? If so, here's a megathread on issues and what people have done to fix it

Did you ever pay real life money for anything? If you can pull the receipt for a transaction there might be some kind of hope.
Nope I never pay (ok I once paid for One piece to get katakuri (no luck) but in FF I invested no money...

Well this is sad all these hours I invested...

I had this happen a while back, but luckily I found out I wrote my Facebook info down somewhere. That was a huge relief. I highly recommend people write down their Facebook info in case something like this happens. Losing all of the progress someone made is just a terrible feeling.
 
Why are GL exclusive events in love with constant MP drain? I remember last year's Halloween event doing that too; it was so annoying that I just decided it was not worth the effort of dealing with.
The RNG on that last halloween boss was so infuriating. I was never so mad at this game as I was for that boss. Still haven't tried this one yet, I hope I don't get flashbacks.
 
Cg citra seems interesting, looks to be a better evoker than garnet.
She would have been amazing before Hyoh ate all the Orlandeau friend units. She has a light element skill that perfectly chains with the Divine Ruination family, on top of being great for summon missions. I like her, but I'm probably not going big on this one, still waiting for Eiko 7*.

In other news I finally tried that demon spear lady trial. What a frustrating fight. I finally beat it using Eiko/Roy/Wilhelm/A.Rain/Trance Terra/Friend Trance Terra. It got really hairy a few times, but A.Rain with his LB heal/mp restore is the absolute MVP. I got all missions except "don't use LB" since I had to fire off Roy's a few times to get buffed up. So glad I'm done with that one, it definitely had flashbacks to last year's Halloween boss.
 
Looks like your 7* eiko has arrived; the real question is, where's 7* lid though....
7* barbariccia looks potent.
Holy shit, this awakening batch..... They made Zarg awesome again, Barb looks fantastic, Rem, Eiko, GL enhancements to Veritas of the Dark, this is amazing! Looks like I'll be spending some stamina in the gil turtle mines this weekend, I have so many units to 7* awaken this time.

Gotta hand it to Gumi, this batch of 7*s are awesome.
 
Because I'm weak, I did the 11k step up to try to get a Citra.

Got 4 rainbows.

-10th Tidus (LEAVE ME ALONE TIDUS!)
-7th Ayaka (YOU TOO!)
-2nd Yuna (ok but I'd rather have Eiko)
-Citra yay!

Good enough for now. I checked the UoC pool, and Eiko's still not in there, I guess because they're having that two part 7* awakening banner. Oh well, plenty of units to awaken in the meantime. I 7*'d Zarg immediately, need to burn through raid coins later to level him up and work on his TMR. Next on my list will be Barb and Rem. Eventually I need to burn through my 5* base dupes and get some STMRs. I wish Tidus' was good. It seems OK but not gamebreaking, unless I'm reading it wrong, it's like an "Adventurer 2" materia with LB boosting.
