How many houses are you buying? :p
Buying a plot of land is just the initial purchase. Furnishings cost money too, unless you've got crafters leveled up and the patience to source materials and craft them yourself. Having said that, I expect furnishing prices to skyrocket considering the sheer amount of new homeowners.
For that reason, I've been holding onto a bunch of high-ticket furnishings to sell. Payday is soon!

Quickest way to get the relic is HW fates, lol.

After 3 hours in the new area I have 8/60 items needed. Meanwhile 1 HW gold fate gives 1 item each time.

Almost rank 10 in the new area. Did HW fates to finish off the item collection for the relic since that is super quick. I just have to do 6 level 60 dungeons now to finish my relic.

Going from rank 1 to almost rank 10 got my redmage from level 73 to level 77.

Bozja Southern Front complete!


That was fun. Not as difficult (or punishing) as Baldesion Arsenal, but supposedly we're getting the true BA analogue in the next Bozjan chapter.

My group couldn’t beat the last boss. We had less then 30 people though. The first two bosses weren’t bad.

Yeah that happened to me yesterday. Lost a whole lot of mettle because the top group kept wiping to Lyon lol. But getting mettle back is easy tbh
Yep lost a ton but it was easy to get back. I'll try again this weekend. It should get easier as more people hit rank 10.

Oh wow are they for real on the 999 coins & 500 coins for the upgrades to add haste lmao
Gotta have something to grind for since relics are incredibly simple this time around lol
I'm gonna hold onto my coins though, in hopes that they nerf the requirements over time like they did for some aspects of Eureka

After doing a few runs, it looks like there's a low chance that the chests can drop the upgrade item directly, so prob get some upgrades that way. It's a fun run, just a really dumb way to queue in.

I managed to complete a run this weekend after a few runs that failed. It seems to be the only real hard part that messes up a group is if the platform group on the last boss is good enough.

With all my runs I had 56 coins so I picked up three items. I can't imagine grinding out 500 coins for each upgrade.

It would take 42 runs where all prisoners live to upgrade chest or pants. 21 runs for head, glove, boot. So 147 runs for full outfit. The only benefit for the upgrades is haste inside Boz. WTF is wrong with devs.

The Body augmentation dropped for me today on my 4th (or was it 5th?) clear, so I would assume that it wouldn't take the entire 147 runs to augment a full suit. Think of the coins as a pity system, like the Savage totems.

Oh and they're tradeable, so you can just pick them up from the MB as well

Just finished the 5.3 content.

The Shadowbrings story finally comes to an end. Such a great expansion. I'm interested in 6.0 now... is Zeno gonna be the bad guy yet again? Also, is 6.0 the last expansion? I'm looking forward to whatever's next!
