This is a thread about discussing the Octopath gacha, because it's a fun game. Feel free to talk about various topics like how blessed/screwed you were by the gacha, advice on bosses, how much we got fucked over with Adelle's banner because SE is the worst gacha company of all time, and most importantly how Tressa is the best girl and should be cherished for that reason.
>>
someone remind again what the point is of the elite battles in the tower of remembrance
>>
>>1019870
Right now, nothing outside of maybe grinding for really hard monster feats twice as fast (there's a feat for killing 100 weasels when the only one in the game is an elite, for instance)
Later, you'll be able to fight the elites that drop Innocent/Fenrir/Tyrranical upgrade materials there to effectively double how many you get each day.

Also as a heads up, we *should* be getting Bestower of Fame chapter 1 next week, and that comes with a new equipment tier. The weapons when upgraded will boost max SP, and they have a better grade than Tyrranical weapons (the new weapon tier ties BT for weapon grade at III). We also should get the remaining expert hunts and the remaining four BT NPCs to beat up, so the current bias towards spear/bow/tome/axe will come to an end finally.

If we get T4 upgrades and the historic fragment exchange shop, do NOT spend them for BT weapons. Turns out there's awakening stones for some 4*s in that shop and you can use those to get those 4* units to A4 for accessories.
>>
Someone post some in-game pics
>>
so is this game purely single player? seems like it has a similar feel to the actual octopath game except you having to roll the gacha to recruit more units of course. kinda on the fence about it because i haven't been impressed with any mobages run by square enix that i've played.
>>
>>1019870
I used the legendary ashes from the different floor bosses to max the stamp weapons at Kota's shop for the gear collector feats. Now I don't bother with them anymore. If they added the Flamesgrace and Victor's Hollow elites, I'd get extra gear mats there.
>>1019904
Yup, purely single player. It has better combat/gameplay and story than the first Octopath game, music's the same with a few new tracks and graphics are a slight downgrade. SE sucks at managing their games, but at least one doesn't have time-limited content so you can play it like a normal rpg and though the rolls are stingy, you'll be able to acquire enough to get enough characters to do all the content no problem.

tldr if you are looking for an actual game to play on your phone, pick this up. If you want a waifu png collector gacha game (ain't nothin' wrong with that), there are many better options that won't hurt your wallet nearly as much.
>>
>>1019904
It's 100% single player, no PVP garbage.
It's a good game with a bad gacha stapled onto it because SE is the worst gacha company.

what convinced me to get Edea was vague memories of this comic only realizing after she won't have this ability in came
also she's cute
>>
Is my free pull Edea stuck at 4.5 rank if I don't spend rubies to try to claim her 5* rank version?
Also, can the traveler introductions you see when pulling a new traveler be viewed elsewhere? My game crashed when I got a bunch of new travelers from the free 10 pull.
>>
>>1020047
>Edea
Nope, you can raise her up to 5* if you have a gold warrior seal. Which mind you, is probably as rare as or even rare than pulling Edea at 5*. (Speculated 0.5% vs 0.8%). I guess hunts are free to run, but it's still gonna take a while because you only get 1 try per day.
>Traveler introductions
Nope, one time thing only. Same as any story content that is outside the memoirs. A very strange decision, seeing how story-driven this game is.
I remember someone making a Google sheet of all the quotes, but I don't remember where it was. Could be the subreddit or the discord.
>>
>>1019973
when is she? next week?
>>
Warrior tower when?
>>
>>1019973
Present. Collab makes me wanna go play it again, though I'd have to emulate 'cause I don't know where my copy is and all the save data was on my old 3ds anyway. I got the big twist spoiled for me ages ago and it sucked out any desire I had of playing it. Helluva twist though, would've been one of my favourites ever if I could be surprised by it. Makes me think I should finish NieR Automata before the collab comes to Octopath in case they spoil all the twists about that game like they did with the Bravely collab.
>>1019988
Nice octodubs and Agnes isn't out yet, so if you're rerolling for her on Edea's banner you're only gonna get Edea. And yes, rubies are very scarce, this is the stingiest gacha I'm playing by far.
>>1020193
>Which mind you, is probably as rare as or even rare than pulling Edea at 5*. (Speculated 0.5% vs 0.8%).
>tfw day 1 player and never seen a gold seal
>Sophia has been trapped at 4.5* for almost that long
I hate it.
>>1020241
Probably, but we can't predict it as global is different from JP and the collab banner durations are already different.
>>
>>1020193
I see. I'm glad that Edea is just one gold Thunderblade Seal away from her true potential, but I'm disappointed that I couldn't see the recruitment quotes for her and the other 6 new travelers I got.
Also, would it be neat if we could use the rings other than the Flamebearer Ring for gameplay purposes?

To anyone farming silver shards from hunt rewards: Use Elvis!
Due to Exchange conversion rates, 1 Gold Guidestone is worth as many Silver shards as 1.25 Silver Guidestones (20G shards -> 5S stones = 25S shards) However, in hunt rewards, 5G stones comes out to 31.25S shards while 10S stones comes out to 50S shards. With event promotions, event units give out 10 bonus G stones. That's 62.5S shards, or 93.75S shards total. The event exchange has 2000 Elvis stones anyways so it would be worth it even if Elvis was a good unit. Hell, this is good to get S stones in general.
>>
What are recollection units? Are they limited?

where do we get the mats to upgrade tyrannical weapons, and do they replace innocents, fenrirs, or both/neither?

>>1020597
Thanks! I'm desperate for silver shards, so I'll be sure to crack open some of these guidestones of his.
>>
>>1020625
>where do we get the mats to upgrade tyrannical weapons
The four elites west from Donescu.
>and do they replace innocents, fenrirs, or both/neither?
Tyrannical weapons are better outside of the arena because they have a higher grade bonus which gives you a hidden boost to stats, but Innocent/Fenrir are superior in the arena where grade bonuses are disabled.
>>
>>1020606
Important story NPCs turned playable. They are limited, but they will be sparkable on the following recollection banner.
>>
This is a long shot, but is anyone here versed in dream analysis? Last night I dreamt that I was back in high school and Tressa was my girlfriend. She was wearing my old school's girls uniform but with her usual hat. We were talking and cuddling behind the science building, then she suddenly had to transfer schools and we'd have to break up because I don't have her at Awakening IV in CotC.
>>
Reminder to start saving up expert hunt permits starting tomorrow as the remaining 4 BT weapons are expected to drop with the new expert hunts on Wednesday and locked behind clearing said hunts (and tier IV weapon upgrades in turn are locked behind the BTs) so if you want to start farming all that asap then you'll need 4 permits by Wednesday.

Shame that would mean giving up gold guidestones on Edea.

>>1021058
Pic related?
>>
>>1021179
If you value the guidestones more then by all means. It's probably slightly better in the long term anyway, though neither decision is really going to make much of a difference there. Personally, I'm looking forward to improving my Glossom clear time so I can start farming him more seriously and maybe giving some of the level 100 NPCs a shot (so far my record is getting the Flamesgrace one down to half health so with some sleep luck and better gear I think I might have a chance there) so my priority is getting my hands on better gear asap.
>>
>>1021179
You can still do Normal and Otherworld Hunts. Alternating 1 normal/1 expert each day brought me to 7/7/7 tickets in the morning without missing a hunt a day. 30 guidestones a day is still pretty good before it tanks to 15 max in a few.
>>
>>1021188
Expert hunts have a higher difficulty than Normal hunts, right? I don't know yet, since I haven't unlocked hunts yet.
>>
>>1021219
Yep, and they give the same rewards with the same odds. There isn't a healing torch near the boss, but there's always a cait on expert hunts so you can go into the cait battle, fully regen your hp/sp and then flee as many times as you want to heal.
>>
how do i get those ??? enemies to appear in collab hunts?
>>
Fuck, I was one hit away from defeating glossom. Everyone's saying he is easier than tikilen but it's the opposite for me because I don't have a single 5 star useful for the fight.
That aside, do anons have any suggestions how to survive the "glossom stands ready" combo, or minimize the casualties from it?
>>
>>1021461
Just do the hunts (manually so no easy hunt) until they show up.
>>1021597
There are three ways of dealing with it really. Either you break him before he gets it off, you sac a tank or slap as many offensive debuffs on him and defensive buffs on your team as you can with the most expendable units out front and hope things go well. With his offenses debuffed, his random attacks aren't that bad when spread across the entire team (though there's always a chance someone gets fucked anyway), but without that there's no way you're not taking casualties.

how much worse is it to get an uncapped 5* unit like pic related?
>>
>>1021954
its pretty shitty when you get one and you're already at end game
>>
>>1021954
Depends on the unit. Sofia actually is mostly fine at 4.5* since she still gets everything relevant but a ST 3-hit, but the lower level cap and stats definitely hurts.
Bright side is that even at 4.5* Sofia is by far the best ice damage in the game currently.
If she's your party leader and you fail a haggle/request attempt, she sneezes!
>>
>>1021975
>>1021979
so do you just have to do more work to uncap them later or do you need to pull a dupe or something? i'm just starting out so i don't really get how it works yet.
>>
>>1021982
You either can bump them up to 5* through a *very* rare item, or if you pull a dupe at 5* that'll do the job for you as well.

Right now don't worry about it

Okay I’d like to say something

how the fuck did I win, I genuinely thought this wouldn’t be doable for months or at minimum until level 4 weapons came out
This was a test run!
>>
>>1022515
I mean you are running a pretty much optimal team for him.
>>
>>1022518
I thought the damage output wouldn’t be there due to how tanky he was, and that I would need better weapons to have a serious shot at winning without rolling the dice on sleep cheese strats.

But hey I got to blow away a hyperboss with the best merchant so I can’t complain!
>>
>>1022515
What even is that, the BT axe fight?
>>
Dammit, the Tower of Remembrance has 23/24 chests for me. That implies I'm missing a chest in the Bravely collab areas. Where's that special NPC fight anyway? I went through the whole collab and didn't find it, so maybe that's where the last chest is.
>>
Nevermind, found the chest. Still don't know where to fight the super collab NPC though, not that I could hope to beat them.
>>
>>1022760
>>1022765
The optional superboss is located at the very end of floor 3. Go to the last chest before the end, and then go up and right. You'll go down an invisible path straight into the void where the superboss hangs out. If you beat the arena bosses you shouldn't have much trouble with the first fight. Once you win you can inquire her to fight a level 100 version that's basically just for bragging rights although still a bit easier than the other L100 NPCs
>>1022709
That's one of the L100 NPCs, which are best described as "you are not beating this for the next six months minimum" territory of difficulty just because they're so tanky that you'll ram into the 15 turn limit long before killing them unless you have absolutely absurd amounts of damage output.
Even with everything I have I still only by the slimmest of margins pulled off a win; I would not even consider trying until we get IV weapons and only if you have a ridiculously loaded team for the fight.
>>
>>1022786
Thanks, I would've never found that secret path on my own.
>>
>>1022786
It's not just for bragging rights, you can farm her daily for 30 heroite which significantly speeds up the grind for Elvis materials. Even if you're never actually going to use him, his A4 accessory at the very least is always worth grabbing and is going to take a long time to get without farming the Bravely boss.
>>
Where's Agnes? ; ;

I think 5 hours 50 minutes are left until maintenance, it'll be back up 10 hours from now
>>
Glad to find a thread for this game, I started playing some days ago and pic rel is my current team, just beat Tydus or whatever the power boss is called.
I have some questions idk if you guys can help:
Is my team composition fine? I know I'm missing a scholar but I didn't get any, I'm saving for the healer that is coming tomorrow I hope I get a scholar.
How many rubies do I need to guarantee a featured character?
Where can I find more people for the nameless town?
Is there an armor/weapon progression that I should follow?
Any tips would be great. Thanks in advance.
>>
>>1023777
>Is my team composition fine?
Unit-wise, it should be fine until you start to reach level 45 areas, this is because 3.5* units are capped at level 40. Also, Tahir is kinda dogshit.
>How many rubies?
6000 usually. For the Edea/Agnes, it's only 2400 due to the step ups and it having a free pull on the first pull
>Nameless town
Just follow the side quests, it leads you to those new people. If it doesn't, then that simply means there aren't any for to meet.
>Armor/Weapon
Bigger level = usually better. This holds true until endgame, but don't think about it right now. But as a sneak peak, Innocent series is for magic units, Fenrir series is for physical units. Tyrannical are for both, as long as you're outside the arena because grade bonuses are disabled there. Inside, Fenrir/Innocent are better.
>>
>>1023878
>3.5*
Fuck, i just realized that Kurtz and Sigrid are 3.5* and they are nice atm hopefully i get something better tomorrow
>Tahir is dogshit
I'm aware of that, i was planning on replacing him with a scholar but i don't have any, i hope i get something good tomorrow to replace those 4 units

This is an incredible wealth of resources, I especially like the world map where you can click on any location and get maps showing treasures you may be missing and what enemy types are there.
Good to see you have Lynette, hopefully you can get Viola too. Agnes tomorrow will really help you out.
>>
anyone know approximately how much rubies I can get just from doing all the random quests and stuff?
Character quests, memoires, some feats, etc.
I haven't done much in the way of these things, they only seem to give around 5-10 each but it probably adds up

Here’s the stinger

This was 2400 rubies, and I didn’t even cash the pity in
I missed both 50/50 chances as well and this still happened
I feel very confused right now
>>
>go to pity for agnes
>don't get her
>do the free pull since it reset after going through the second time
>get her as a 4*
Never been in this situation before.
If I exchange 200 for her guarantee pity thing and summon her with it, will she be 5* (and if I did I'm guaranteed her awakening stone right?)
Or do I just get her guidestones
>>
This is some bold new ui design
>>
>>1024339
5* pulls will turn a 4.5* into a 5*, plus the guidestones/Awakening stones yo would normally get from a dupe. So yes, the 5* Agnes would upgrade her.
>>
Goddammit, not another 4.5*. I know his 230 regen and 2-hit Axe AOE are 5* only. Is he still the Tikilen-killer or am I still hopeless?
>>
So is tatroka or tatrock? Yeah I can read but the VA pronounces it as tatroku
>>
>>1024369
In EN, it's Tatloch. In her character trailer, it's Tatrocha.
>>
>>1024360
You’re fine, his main draws are all before 5*. The 5* skills are just 2-hit AOE axe and a single target heal + regen which are both not super relevant for the fight. You still get his best in the game AOE regen and the 3-hit RT axe skill at 4*

Anyways I’m still kind of in disbelief with my pulls this morning
I didn’t even want Agnes that much but I got so many copies I managed to get her to A4 in my expected budget and now I don’t even know what to do with the completely broken accessory.
Have a cute Tressa
>>
>>1024360
Theo is an absolute gigachad even without his 5*. His axe aoe is nice for Glossom (though he's still ridiculously useful in that fight too even with it) and literally the only skill he needs for Tikilen is his aoe regen +wind res up. Just slap some HP accessories on him so he can take a few hits and you're golden.
>>
Is the bravely default Collab a one time thing or they'll be a rerun in the future?
>>
>>1024406
They apprently did rerun the banners once in JP. Notably though, when JP first got the collab there was no awakening so that may have been the reason behind the rerun to give people the chance to awaken them. Regardless, it'll definitely be a while before we get another BD banner.
>>
aieeeeeee I got her as 4.5* could be worse I guess, also got Primrose as 4.5*.
Managed to class up Sigrid and Kurtz, also got Noelle and Laura idk wich one would be better Noelle is cuter tho, also should I awaken the units that can be awakened? Or should I wait for later.
>>

Oops forgot pic

it sucks so much that they decided to exclude the historic material exchange from this patch. I just want an extra BT sword or two, but farming them is such a slog.
>>
>>1024462
People usually limit break to 65 -> awakening 3 -> level 74. The influence boost on level 65 is such a low hanging fruit, and the HP boost from awakening 3 is important for the endgame fights.

>should I awaken the units that can be awakened
It depends, but I did this for most of the characters: Awakening 1 (it's very strong because of the added speed) -> 65 lvl -> Awakening 3 (only for those who need it) -> 70 lvl for extra BP -> 74 lvl. However, some do not even need Awakening 1, just levels.
>got Noelle and Laura idk wich one would be better
Noelle is actually a 5* undercover. She just pretends she isn't.
Laura has a great passive ability that makes her useful even when she is not suitable for a particular battle at all, as well as superior tome attacks, which is a rather rare thing.
They're both good in their own way.
>>
Shame it's totally useless for me because the game saw fit to bless me with a grand total of 9 BT tomes before I stopped farming the NPCs daily, but with the new equipment and taking the plunge to break down some excess guidestones to class up Odette, I've perfected the 2-turn kill.
>>
They datamined next week’s unit and it’s actually *not* anyone people expected, because the banner order is a hopeless cause and trying to make sense of it will drive lesser men insane
It adds Cardona, who’s an alright merchant with a 4x random target ice move, a 3x AOE spear move, and a 230 potency ST heal that also is a taunt for the recipient
She’s not Tressa so she’s an easy skip
>>
>>1024406
Everything except the banners for Adelle, Edea and Agnes is permanent. So Elvis, all the collab content, the otherworld hunts, etc will all be available to anyone who plays this game from now on.
>>
>>1024470
>I just want an extra BT sword or two, but farming them is such a slog.
I'm starting to think BT weapons don't drop or I'm doing something wrong. I fight the tome guy every day recently for historic material, but he has never dropped a tome other than the guaranteed one I got the first time I beat him.
>>
These new novice missions are incredible for new players. All I got were 4 stars, but I would've loved having these extra 14 four stars when I started.
>>
Free pull of Agnes' step up didn't even have a 4 star in it. Nowhere to go but up from here, I'm goin' for her! I really want a proper regen caster.
>>
NOWHERE TO GO BUT UP INDEED
WTF BROS!!!
I've never gotten three in one pull, this was step 2! And I was the guy who was really debating on pulling for H'aanit, my fave OG female Octopath traveler and decided against it! Man, I still don't have any gold seals but I'm just so happy to have her and Therese too. And Hasumi's actually 5 star! My options for Tikilen just exploded.
>>
>>1024652
Grats
in my 11 10 pulls I only got a dupe Tressa, a dupe Gilderoy, and a dupe Therese that still leaves her at 4.5* when she’s A2
Enjoy your new units, I’m going to sit here and figure out who should get the Reraise accessory
>>
>>1024665
Thanks!
I paid for my good luck by failing the coin flip at the end of the step up. Got another 4.5* Therese (seriously, getting her full 5* version is TWICE as likely! We're both getting screwed) and my guaranteed 5* was Scarecrow, who I've already gotten twice in the past.

I went back in for round 2, got nothing on the first two steps, but then this on my third step of round 2: 5* Agnes and the only non-5* I was somehow still missing.
I'm down to 1000 rubies but I think I will go the last two steps because a guaranteed 5* for 600 rubies is a good deal imo. Then I'll be broke.
>>
And they were rubies well spent, 'cause Hasumi called this swordsman home!
I have an important question for you bros. I did the step up twice and got two Agnes. That means I can pity her for a third copy. Should I use that second awakening stone for A2 or save it for her special to get added to the game? On the one hand, her kit is very wide so she seems like someone who could actually make good use of the 4th skill slot. On the other hand, her special is a full front row regen and speed buff, and aoe regen healing is pretty damn good in this game.
>>
Now that I've beat the Final Chapter, how should I start getting the best equipment for my band and prepare to take on the Master of All questline?
>>
Here is the team I am working with
>Edea / Hasumi
>Tressa / Agnes
>Lynette / Viola
>Sofia / Aslyte
All of them except Viola and Sofia are awakening lv1, and Aslyte is 3. Viola and Sofia are 4.5's but the rest are 5*

Starting to get a bit stonewalled by the main story now (feels like I barely won the 2 boss fights in the latest chapter). Is there any adjustments I could make for the team or is it a matter of levels or gear? I just unlocked new ~51 gear I can buy but I don't have the materials yet, and my levels are anywhere from 50-60 (story "recommends 50")

The only other 5* I got are heathcote and scarecrow (very low lv, I only just got them pulling for agnes). And other than that I have probably most of the lower rarity units if I had to guess.
>>

You don't really have to worry about grinding gear until you're ready to face the final boss of Master of All Chapter 8, where you'll want to grind for level 60 meteorite gear in the castle. You'll find plenty of good enough gear along the way in chests but if you hit a wall, feel free to grind around the latest town a little bit for some of the latest weapons like in a normal rpg.
>>
>>1024848
I guess I'll take my time clearing the traveler stories, upgrading the Nameless Town, and revising my main story team to cover my lack of Fire and Ice damage. Pretty sure my 4.5 Edea can cover the former, on that end.

IMPORTANT PSA:
You can upgrade Sacred weapons to IV, even though that didn't arrive until several months later in Japan.
Sacred IV has a better grade than Tyrannical IV, and also has a far more useful +30 to max SP instead of +30 to crit, so it's definitely an upgrade.
>>
>>1024915
I thought Tyrannical weapons would last much longer, can't believe they're already obsolete. Does that mean future weapon series will immediately come with IVs too? So we gotta refarm everytime there's a new town? Shit, that's a lot of BTs
>>
>>1019856
have they adjusted the cash shop prices or is it still made for whales?
>>
how do you stop caits from feeling?
I assume you're supposed to break them asap but they have over 10 shields and I've seen them fleeing on their 2nd turn
>>
>>1025278
You need a character with a Priority skill ("act faster during turn") to break them at the start of turn 2 and kill it during turn 3. Caits never flee turn 1 so this will be consistent. Heathcote does this job for the highest level Cait we have right now, if you don't have him then yeah it feels bad but you just have to focus a Cait down and pray it doesn't flee

I beat all the bonfires but I can't quite beat the dragon. I have all the best units for the fight, but I'm underleveled and undergeared. I think I heard he drops an accessory when you first beat him, but is there any reason to daily grind the fight? I'd like to know what I'm missing out on. And since nobody answered my question about Agnes yesterday, I think I'm gonna spend the second awakening stone on her today. She really wants more skills at her fingertips.
>>
Ugh, now I have 4.5* Millard and 4.5* Tressa. Who do I prioritize in getting to 5*? I already have Theo, and please try to imagine a world where you don't have a massive Tressa boner
>>
>>1025474
The first time clear reward for the dragon is an accessory that gives +40 SP and +6 SP regen. Aside from that, it has a chance to drop an accessory which if I remember right gives a pretty nice boost to def, e.def and speed, which is the only benefit for farming it daily aside from it also giving a decent chunk of exp.
>>
>>1025475
If you don't have Gilderoy at 5* already, I would say Tressa as a tank can be quite useful and you want them to be as tanky as possible, which means getting their level as high as you can. Having Theo makes Millard less of a priority.
>>1025498
Thanks, sounds like I can take it easy and not worry about the dragon for now then.
>>
>>1024915
Thanks for this! I just watched the new shizukatz vid going over the nitty gritty and stat comparisons and wow, it really is sacred all the way. I thought maybe Innocent might still be worth for magic but nope! I'm way behind, still grinding innocent and fenrir and have only beaten two BT NPCs (neither of which seem to drop anything) and my armor is a mix of innocent and fenir. Time to blitz to the end of the story today!
My understanding from that vid is that there's just three elite enemies to farm for the Sacred mats and they're all in the latest dungeon, right?
>>
Damn, so close.
>>
>>1025475
5* Tressa gets a 2-hit Wind AOE and priority 3-hit Spear
5* Millard gets front row 205 heal (more than 2,000 unboosted, essentially a full heal when Millard acts) and 1-hit Light AOE.
In terms of future content, every Cleric brings something that makes "Big Heals" Millard less attractive. Stead is a decent Dark attacker with full row heal+regen. Agnes does Regen, Heals and Revives. Ophelia will do everything Agnes does better. For now, Millard's on-demand heals are still very much relevant. The only real advantage 5* brings is no longer needing to boost to heal.
Tressa will always have Sidestep + AOE taunt with that 1HP Guts passive. She isn't a buffer but the 15% Atk attached to her taunt helps with reaching cap. Future merchants have much better offense/breaking and Gilderoy is already a bulkier merchant by stats and skills. 5* is the only way Tressa will actually break an enemy at the start of the turn, but she has other priorities.
I've got 5* Millard and 4.5* Tressa. 5* Tressa would be a better investment for extra HP and defensive stats. I honestly forget to use Boost on Millard, so the upgrade isn't necessary. Just stick HP boost accessories on him and he'll do his job. Same for Tressa.
t. Indifferent to Tressa and had Millard from the beginning.
>>
>>1025475
Tressa since you already have Theo for healing.
Millard will fall off in usefulness much faster either way, whereas Tressa really wants the extra stats from 5* to tank
if you didn’t have Theo I would have actually recommended Millard over Tressa though; his heal at 5* is completely absurd and would let you do hard fights much more easily because it’s basically a “entire front row to full HP” button
Also, there is no world where I will not be biased towards Tressa.
I’m sorry
>>
I managed to get Agnes in the first lap, 5 star fortunately.
Im not planning on pulling anymore, will we get generic awakening stones?
>>
>>1026324
Eventually you can exchange six awakening stones of the same traveler for one awakening stone of another of your choice. No word on whether collab travelers will be included, but it's leaning toward no.
>>
>>1026340
Assuming it works the same as JP, the answer is no.

>>1025984

>>1026364
wtf why did I pull on the collab then? this is so damn shitty
>>
>>1026467
Because chasing awakenings is stupid and strictly for whales anyway anyway
>>
Should I focus more on physical defense or magical for gear ?
>>
>>1026498
For general gameplay it doesn't really matter, just slap on the highest level armor you can afford. Personally when I don't know what I'm going to be fighting, I like to try to keep each character's defenses balanced (so favoring physical gear for magically defensive units and vice versa). For endgame content, it's going to depend on the fight.
>>
>>1026457
If you have Millard and any regen healer I wouldn't pull. Agnes needs to use 3BP for any of her heals to multi-cast. Millard simply heals the party and doesn't even need boost at 5*. Agnes has a great kit but she isn't perfect. She needs those 5* BP nodes to start the battle strong. 'Course, I just got my first 4.5* Theo on the free pull in addition to my 5* Millard so I may be biased.

Yes! I'm the slowest slowpoke ever but finally, for the first time since launch day, I'm caught up in the story! And I totally called the mastermind in BoF, I even went back to the /vmg/ archives to make sure I did indeed name Father Monadis or however you spell it, but the game might've messed up because even though I chose that person in the prologue, chapter 1 opened with me saying it was Bishop What's His Name, starts with "T".
Not sure what happened there, and I wish there was a compilation online of what all the different dialogue is depending on who you choose.

Anyway, I'm finally prepping for the endgame content, the hardest fights. I still need to do all the arena fights, almost all of the BT NPCs, the dragon and the Bravely NPC. For those of you caught up on everything, can you tell me what my daily checklist should look like? So far I've figured I should be doing the Nameless Town stuff and killing the four elites under the cathedral for Sacred gear mats.

>enemy attack option 1 does 700-1000 (about 50% hp) to all members
>enemy attack option 2 does ~1200+ outright to one person (puts them from full to critical HP)
How do I stop getting bodied by the enemies? My team is almost entirely 5* awakening 1 for the extra stats. I'm wearing the best possible gear I've been able to find to this point. And my level is right at recommended.
I always buff first turn with an 15% phys/ele def party buff and every turn the enemies take is still so threatening. Edea (with my best armor) can provoke but she just dies or has to swap out the very next turn if she lives with a sliver. Agnes has the regen which is nice but I'm usually already trying to stop the bleeding by the time she has 3 BP to make it AOE.

This shit's just getting out of hand I'm at a loss. My damage is fine once I finally break the enemy I usually just instagib it, but I got no idea what I'm supposed to be doing defensively to stop dying so quickly.

>>
>>1027310
>So far I've figured I should be doing the Nameless Town stuff and killing the four elites under the cathedral for Sacred gear mats.
Those are the main things you should be doing, the rest is just gravy. The BT NPCs have daily drops for a material you'll be able to exchange for BTs later (and supposedly may be required for 4* units' A4 accessories down the line), but it's not really a high priority as you can farm the NPCs repeatedly for BT drops anyway and the timer for historic material will be reduced significantly in the future. Apart from that, you can kill the special elites in the Tower of Remembrance for unique materials every day, but said materials aren't really used for anything too relevant. Once you're strong enough, you can also kill the dragon that shows up in the Tower of Remembrance daily for a chance of a decent accessory drop.

There really is very little you absolutely should do daily so don't burn yourself out thinking you have to do everything.
>>
>>1027511
You have Viola, the queen of debuffs. Use her Anti-Attack II. If you have Kurtz (a 4* thief), he has Anti-Attack which will stack with Viola's Anti-Attack II to hit the atk/eatk debuff cap of -30% if you need even more debuffs. Tressa should be your main tank, not Edea, and put Agnes in the front row so she can set regen and keep healing your squad, with Hasumi swapping in occasionally supplementing heals as needed and buffing defenses. If you still can't progress, grinding gear and hopefully leveling off caits while you do so is your last resort.
>>1027567
Where are all the level 100 fights? I know about the old man in Flamesgrace and the collab NPC, not sure if there's others or if any were added this patch.
>>
>>1027853
Thanks bro, so it's looking like just Nameless Town, the four sacred elites and the two bonfire special elites for sunlands and highlands 'cause my stamp weapons are already maxed with the other ashes.

And now I feel like an absolute fucking dingus because this whole time I was running Innocent Tome IV on Odette instead of Sacred because I'd equipped it to another scholar for another fight I did so I very likely would have beaten him earlier during my many attempts where he killed me with only a sliver of health left.
>>
>>1027857
Thanks senpai
The main reasons I was using Edea as my tank is her defense was about 50 pts higher and she gets BP when attacked. And tressa gets her SP cost halfed if she's at full HP. But if Tressa works better I can make that change (the atk buff to front on her taunt is nice too).

And I must be an idiot to not realize Viola had that debuff. I must have unequipped it early when it wasn't an issue and forgot about it. I could really use a couple awakening stones for her though, the skill bloat is real.

The best course of action is to get 5 4* characters to level 65 for each influence. Maximum influence needed is 600 on Expert Hunts, so that means you get 3 flex-slots for whoever you want in addition to full hunt rewards. When your 5* units hit 84 or so, they'll have 140 influence and leave you less reliant on 4*s for rewards.
This does unfortunately suck when bringing promotion units or 3.5/4.5* units because they replace your flex slots, which you actually need in Expert Hunts to not die. Fuck you Elvis Fuck you Tressa Fuck you Theo why do your influence nodes need to be locked behind level 84? [/spoiler)

>>1028212
Good luck bro. Try using the taunt+sidestep combo on Tressa, it's busted vs physical attacks. Plus she has that handy guts passive where once per fight, when she would die, she doesn't.
And don't worry about wanting an extra slot on Viola. All she really needs is her atk debuff, her def debuff and double wide burst. If you're fighting one boss weak to daggers, you can swap out double wide burst for triple edge.
>>
>>1028301
Thanks I'll play around with some of this stuff. The guts passive on Tressa has come in clutch a few times and secured me some close victories.
I haven't really played around with the sidestep or her heal/bp restores stuff, I feel like she's already got some similar issues with skill bloat. But maybe I just value the wrong skills when I'm setting up my skills (I tend to favor attack type coverage pretty highly). Part of it is going into fights blindly, if I knew in advance what I'd be fighting and their weaknesses and attack types and stuff I'd have more of an idea what to bring.

For whatever reason the most recent chapter I did was somehow easier than both of the last two and felt pretty reasonable (which were brutal). I could probably do with some equipment farming too now that I'm at an area that seems to enable that.

Sadly you have to since I think that’s the only elite that drops the strengthstones
Use Shelby, Laura, Elvis, Peredir, and thieves to break him
To be fair, fire damage basically isn’t real right now.

Anyways I’m starting to hit the point where I’ll be grinding up the levels of my 4* units relatively soon since all my 5*s are starting to cap or get close to it, so maybe in a month or two I’ll be “done” with the exp grind

Just took down the BD hyperboss myself, wasn’t super rough in between having insane amounts of light/sword/dagger damage and Tressa being able to tank Meteor with ease while also impaling the fox repeatedly
I’m not crazy enough to farm this each day, although I might be willing to do so until I finally get Elvis to 5* since 30 more heroite a day will make that go much faster
>>
>>1028862
Good job anon. Personally I'll be incorporating this fight into my daily routine seeing as I've had my fill of daily BT fights and I'm only really doing the dragon and the cathedral elites now anyway. I'm keen on getting Elvis to 5* for the extra rubies and then going for that A4* accessories asap which would take an absolute eternity without it.
>>
>>1028458
The ad ones are technically elite fights, elites cannot run away. Normal encounters will always get one chance to run away unless you have a priority skill to break with on turn 2, but right now that's only heathcote since tressa's is spear and the big exp ones aren't weak to spear. It's just rng like in the normal games, or any game with metal slime-mechanics.
>>
>>1028965

Crit weakness would be busted thanks to Ashlan and H'aanit but man, I wish there was an easier way to kill these fat fucks.
>>
>>1029049
At least the newer caits in JP have far less health and shields. You can 2 turn them every time. For now what exists is a 3 turn kill that either relies on flee rng or having heathcote.

That new dragon gives 250k exp though so while you'll need to go rest up after each fight it's probably faster to kill it repeatedly than trying to encounter wild caits.

You can't farm the dragon repeatedly, it's on a timer like any other elite.

There is a clear divide for traveler stories. 3* is either Mexican manhood journey, apprenticeship, or a love misadventure. 4* and up are actual stories. Stories like Peredir and Noelle are actually kind of fun and then you have Cless. Cless definitely has it worst but Cedric and Aslyte are pretty painful. I'd say Viola and Fiore are among the few that feel like full stories. Meena gets an honorable mention for the heavy implications of what would happen if your party wasn't around to give her self-confidence.

Cardona banner's first step costs 200 instead of 150. I'm not pulling, but it's exhausting to have something controversial happen every week.
Also, hunts are getting a guidestone bonus drops for all characters. If you've been stockpiling tickets, now's the time to splurge.

I dropped all of my tickets during Elvis rate up so I could get massive amounts of guidestone shards, thinking it was safe to restock tickets for the week after because Cordona was confirmed so she would be the only bonus for that time.
Then we get universal guidestone bonuses for JP 2nd anni. the day after.
That 200 Ruby step 1 sucks I guess but it's 50 extra rubies on a unit nobody would care too much about. 30 apologems for ad fix brings that down to 20 extra rubies so it's not going to cause a huge stink. I just wonder if anyone is going to demand a free Octopath character like JP when we only have half of them and the game was been out in GL for a quarter of a year.
>>
got lucky and single pulled a primrose 4*. worth or no?
>>
>>1032123
Her best skills are locked behind her 5* and she greatly appreciates the extra SP because of her high SP costs and how her SP regen scales off max SP, but she's still good at breaking against fan and dark weak single enemies and can still buff attack and defense for the entire party which is always nice to have. She's fantastic at 5* and generally better than any other 4* dancer at 4.5*, but the 5* boost is absolutely a huge improvement. Definitely a top tier candidate for devoting your hunts to.

I'd take a look at your 4* roster to see if you have any good ones that you're missing.
I only pulled the first step of step ups because I was missing Menno, Noelle, Barrad and Bertrand. In the end, I only pulled once in the Stead/Lumis step up, got Noelle, and got the rest from the free pulls.
I haven't pulled since then, and I'm sitting on 9.3k right now...I wonder if I can reach 5 digits before Cyrus comes out.

By the way, big tip if you want to try it.

So why exactly did miza kill monaris?
>>
>>1033239
It's heavily implied, especially by the memoir that unlocks after you finish Bestower of Fame Chapter 1 where some characters are discussing that Monaris was abusing her, likely in a sexual way. I got vibes like that from the dinner table scene, the way she acts around him subtly shows she's afraid of him (notice she sits as far away as she can and how she speaks). For some lines in the game that more directly hint at it, the aforementioned memoir has Father Taigan mention that he doted on her but "Even so, he succumbed to his desires. And Miza, his very own daughter...became his prey. Eliza nods solemnly and replies "I know what happened. Is she not the victim in that story? After all that she has paid the price for her sins, she deserves salvation as much as anyone."
Of course, this is just the reason evil was able to take hold of her in the first place. Why she actually killed him was a mixture of both this and the fact that's being led down the path to full blown evil by the true mastermind.

They can't actually show that sort of thing taking place on screen, so they skirt around it by discussing it second hand after the fact and not explicitly naming it.

does the crit stat affect crit damage or the crit rate? Finally got to the part of the tikilen tournament where she activates her non-crit null and folks, I am annoyed
>>
>>1034030
Rate. It would be outright overpowered otherwise. But alas, it's the most useless stat by far.
>she activates her non-crit null and folks, I am annoyed
Take Ashlan along.
>>
Speaking of Tikilen, I've yet to try her fight but I'd like some help on my team, specifically its composition and formation. It's faster to list who I don't have. I don't have Adelle, Millard, Theo, Gilderoy, Heathcote, Primrose, Eliza, Stead or the new merchant that just got added. Other than that I have everyone (Sophia, Lumis and Therese are 4.5*).
I'm thinking my best team would be Agnes, H'aanit, Scarecrow, Ashlan, Viola, Hasumi, Odette and Tressa but I'm not 100% if that's the best. And if it is the best, what should their row position/formation look like?
>>
>43 rubies from stream rewards
There was a stream? Seriously, they need to announce this shit in the game notices, it'd take virtually zero effort on their part. Did they announce any upcoming content?
>>
>>1034099
You've got Agnes, H'aanit and Scarecrow so you should be fine.
Agnes needs 3 BP to do AOE regen, so she won't be seeing much action. Put her behind one of your breakers. Viola won't contribute much besides debuffs and Ashlan's main purpose is crit-rate up and guaranteed crits during the crit phase. He's not especially sturdy so he can't stay out front too long. You can let these guys hang out behind the guns for most of the fight. Only other advice I have is to make sure Tressa is in a separate row from Hasumi and Agnes so she can tank as long as you need her to.
>>
Where can I check drop rates? I need a lot of Sunstones for a lvl55 armor and I don't know if I should be killing remnants or Riven Soldiers for better drops

Swap Tressa for Mabel. You won't need a tank, especially if it's not Gilderoy. Tressa without A3 is unlikely to survive Slicing Winds and she also can't cheese Tikilen like Glossom. Whereas every single one of Mabel's skills will be useful. Wind\Mdef buffs will allow you to tank Slicing Wind unless there is someone lucky enough to catch all four hits. Hasumi now can focus on being DPS. Mass Mdef debuff. Decent Lightning damage. Can break Tikilen's shields. She is one of the few 4* who really benefits from being A2. Slap Mabel along with your buffer (she got really nice passive) and you're golden.
Altough it may be overkill, you have all the characters you need. Except Theo, but Agnes gets the job done.
>>1034267
Items are just tied to certain monsters. Find to which one and flee from every battle where he does not appear. Sunstones drop in both places so just pick a location where you will hit their weaknesses to end the fight in 1-2 AoE. Farming resources in this game is an ungrateful task, experience is easier to get by beating Caits, leafs are useless, equipment will become obsolete the next second when a new set appears.
>>

Thanks! And as for Agnes' need for 3 BP, I've given her a Ballen Staff so she has a 50% chance to start with 3 BP on turn one, and since I just want to clear the fight instead of grind it, I was just gonna reset til I got that 50%.
>>1035024
Mabel, eh? Damn, I'll need to work on her but you do a good job of selling her. Pretty sure I have her at at least A1, maybe A2. Thanks.

Oh wait, nice, I have Mabel at A3 and uncapped to level 65 (actual level is only 51). Right, she's that dancer I kept pulling a zillion times. Just gotta level her up then.

Every elite post-MoA drops upgrade materials for their respective region's weapon set. In practice though you only need to care about the ones in the cathedral of tytos (unlocked by doing Bestower of Fame chapter 1) as sacred weapons outclass everything else out at the moment.

You just have to do the prologue of his traveler story. If it hasn't shown up yet, presumably you just need to keep doing the main story quests until it does.

i am a brainlet, how do i beat that level guy in the void to 5 star elvis?
>>
>>1036775
You really just need a reasonably leveled and geared team that exploits her weaknesses and preferably some buffs and debuffs unless you want the fight to drag on forever. If you're just done with MoA and have been rolling with a generic blob of your on paper strongest characters, now is the time to start leveling characters out outside of your initial team of 8 because all endgame content expects you to build a specialized team.

Check in game notices. They're buffing underwhelming units from JP in EN.
Lionel got 3 hit sword and 3 hit ice, judging from his character trailer.
https://youtu.be/zUauWvnvVt0
>>
>>1038197
Still seems kind of underwhelming although I don't know how to interpret his power levels; sword and ice are already pretty well covered in EN, his buffs are pretty selfish (only self buffs) and debuffs are pretty narrow (only on single-target attacks). If he hits especially hard then maybe it would change things but I doubt it
>>
Decided to do just one more pull for Cardona because her kit seems really interesting and Cyrus won't be dropping tomorrow.
>>
>>1038197
On one hand, buffing bad units is always a good thing
On the other hand, it means the crystal ball is 100% worthless and nothing matters except giving them even more money
>>
>>1038334
What really matters is not hoarding forever because there's always going to be better things coming in the future and instead pulling for units you personally like or fill holes in your roster.

Pretty good, these are the first changes that affect the gameplay, and not just some schemes with random and rubies. It's hard to say if they'll do anything with already released characters. Fixed Scarecrow's passives and multi-hit for Millard would be nice. Though they'll probably go after the characters that JP shat on like Harley and Prome.
>>
>>1038197
if the name is any indication, it looks like the 3-hit sword breaks shields regardless of type weaknesses, which might be a first for non-thief types?
>>
>>1038613
It lowered the target's defense.
>>
>>1038585
Its nice to see they're doing something for these characters on global.
I think this should start from the gacha or the purchase options more than random gameplay buffs than gameplay buffs.

The gacha rates and pity cost are just so high, and the rubies we get are so low. Even if these characters are buffed significantly I'm not going to pull on them and cost myself the one favorite I can afford to pity after saving for 3+ months of play just because they got some minor buffs.

And the paid options are the worst I've seen in a gacha. There are no bundles or packs or value to speak of. Just gems that are bought at a flat rate of around $30 per 10-pull worth of rubies. You either whale or you go f2p, there is no dolphining in this game.
>>
>>1037721
You're welcome, congrats!
>>1038332
Nicely done, Anon.
>>1038197
I read the notice last night and this is pretty huge. Sounds like they're going the route of RSRS global where they'll be buffing underwhelming travelers (RIP other mediocre 5 stars we've already gotten). Though this will make a lot of characters more appealing and useful, I'm concerned that this isn't like RSRS where we get a pity's worth of gems every month.
>>
getting back into the game after a month plus around Tikilen update since my old phone broke
what changed since then?
what should I be doing asap? any of the banners right now worth spending my 2k currency?
I did the novice step up and got Lynette and awakened her without thinking. I was supposed to save that awakening stone didn't I iirc?
>>
>>1039091
>what should I be doing asap?
Clearing the main story. The latest chapter is Bestower of Fame Chapter 1 and it unlocks the latest tier of gear (Sacred) which is far and away the best gear in the game if you can get it up to stage IV (which requires a stage III weapon fused with a BT weapon of the same type).
>any of the banners right now worth spending my 2k currency?
Nah, I think the Bravely Default collab just ended, so you should be saving.
>I was supposed to save that awakening stone didn't I iirc?
Yeah, but don't worry about it. We're still probably months away from specials unlocking, plenty of time for you to get another Lynette and if you don't have that spare awakening stone by then, it's not the end of the world.
>>
For 200 gems I'll take it.

Holy shit, got her from a seal I got from an ad.
I know she's not good, she's still an upgrade over what I have right now. I count it as a win.
>>
>>1039269
Good shit anon
>>
A very messy clear, but got him on my second try.
>>
Lionel didn’t actually get buffed much, he basically just got SP cost reductions on his biggest moves and two of his worst moves are now 3-hit ST
He’s still the worst 5* warrior, it’s just now he can actually function for breaking sword and ice weakness and if you have no 5* warriors (not counting Tikilen) it might actually be worth pulling for him.
As a side note he still can’t provoke enemies so he’s not very useful for tanking unless you have Cardona or Edea’s A4 accessory.

Anyways Varkyn got stabbed by Fiore and Edea, frozen by Sofia, and whacked on the head by Agnes and Millard once I realized he has a staff weakness

Tressa didn’t fall over until after Varkyn did, which was nice
>>
Dumb question, but will we need meta units/equipment or lots of rubies for battle revives to clear the future story chapters? I saw the fight for the latest JP chapter, and I freaked out at the damage numbers, the boss's level and tactics, and the rare characters used in the video's team.
>>
You'll definitely need to grind for gear, and you characters will need to be tailored to the specific enemies you're fighting as you progress later in the game. Never, ever, ever spend rubies on battle revives.
>>
PSA:
Next week we’re getting Z’annta. He’s a hunter with absolutely no multihit AOE (or bow AOE for that matter), but he does have an innate 30% bow damage boost so he’s better in that regard than Scarecrow or H’annit, and he has a *five* hit random target bow skill at 5* that will shred through a bow weakness very quickly
Apparently he’s one of the top hunters even in JP just because his 5-hit is so strong, so he might be worth going after even if you have Scarecrow/H’annit already
yes this means don’t pull for Lionel
>>
Game has finally took pity on me after 2000+ rubies I spent on her banner last time. I don't even give a fuck that she just 4.5*, since it can be fixed easily. Also got Lionel literally on the first roll lol.

>get H’annit a week before H’annit’s much better master comes out

>>1039659
Dude, I don't really care. With my luck I could pull Z’aanta on first roll and get completely fucked on Cyrus later on. Or vice versa. You never know.
>>
>>1039646
>he does have an innate 30% bow damage boost so he’s better in that regard than Scarecrow or H’annit

Doesn't scarecrow's 30% break bonus damage already count for that same damage type?
>>
>>1039694
Scarecrow only gets 20% break damage so he either needs a crit to proc his other passive or an accessory to cap out his damage bonus. The main issue with Scarecrow is his low potencies though. His highest potency skill is his default 2x single target bow attack at only 180 total potency whereas Z'aanta's 5x random target has a whooping 275 total potency so it's safe to say he's going to absolutely shit on Scarecrow's damage output.

If not for the cutscenes, the rematch against Tytos (or any other Master) would have taken less than a minute. But in any case, it's a stable 250k experience gained without having to run to the tavern to replenish SP, re-hire allies and generally rely on luck while fishing for Caits. The best way to level up characters so far.
>>1039756
>another false flag?
Another false flag. I still remember how my heart skipped a beat when I spent a lot of rubies on Odette, and then in her story, she said: «Perhaps Cyrus is closer than you think». Teasing bitch. As for the next Octopath character, I would bet on Alfyn. He'll be pulled by those who want to defeat Varkyn and/or Glossom, those who don't have Theo or Agnes to cast regen, those who want to make a nice long-term investment (his "Grant front row 1-4 BP" skill will flourish when specials come out). So it kinda makes sense to release him soon.
>>
>>1039646
>Next week we’re getting Z’annta.
Fug, he's one of the most recommended non-limiteds to go for along with the likes of Ophelia, Alfyn, Cyrus, Cecily, Lynette, Viola/Therion, and Sophia according to that one JP dude that leaves big helpful comments on some shizukatz' vids.
I have Scarecrow and H'aanit and they are my favourite guy and girl travelers in the game so far, I think I've become a hunterfag. I only have a bit under 1500 rubies though, so I think I'm probably gonna have to skip, sadly.

Nevermind, just saw that Intermediate rematches are a thing. That's probably what you meant. If they're not hard though, that's some pretty sweet exp.

Unrelated, but I don't think I'll be doing the discounted first pulls on step ups until they lower the price back down to 150 rubies. 200 feels too steep when I only have 1500.
>>

Any tips to survive varkyn's light attacks? I have no 5 star tanks or elem debuffers. His light attacks are strong enough that even if I debuff him the other enemies' attacks would finish off the remaining health
>>
>>1039948
Yeah, I upgraded her to 5* right away, because I had enough 4* silver stones left from collab rolls. Also, speaking of collab, I rolled Edea, Viola, Heathcote and awake stone for Prim all from completing just one step-up. Now I seriously consider skipping Cyrus on his banner and just waiting until he is added to the general pool.
>>
>>1040272
You want to keep him debuffed at all times, bring Kurtz or whatever else 4* gets the job done (though you probably want to awaken them to A3) if you have no 5* options. Defensive buffs also help a lot for the first half of the fight as you won't be getting dispelled until after Varkyn gets below 50% or both adds are dead.
>>
>>1040151
Honestly doesn't feel like those re-fights are really worth it. 2 minutes for 250k exp to one person, while any random battle is 3-5k to eight people and is over in one action. With cait interruptions for bigger amounts to 8 people

So how does Varkyn compare to the "other" light scholar, Odette? Upgrade/downgrade/something different?
>>
>>1040492
Slightly worse. They have the same 3x hit light res debuff spell, he has a 1x hit aoe nuke vs her 2 hit aoe moderate damage, and he has a 3x hit single target damage focused light move vs Odette's 1x hit nuke. He does however make for a good support for her and other light teams with his AoE light debuff.
>>
>>1040492
In terms of damage potential, Odette is definitely better by virtue of having a much higher potency on her on her single target nuke than anything Varkyn can offer and she's better at breaking in aoe fights as Varkyn lacks an aoe multihit attack, but Varkyn is no slouch. If you can trigger his mag up passive he can narrow the gap pretty well (though if you can give Odette outside sources of passive mag up like parking Eliza behind her ass, she pulls ahead again) and his e.def + e.atk debuff is always valuable for helping you hit debuff caps. If you need/want to ramp up his damage quicker, you can also slap Kota's Right Glove on him purely for the SP drain effect.

Overall he's a downgrade, but not by a huge margin and he's fantastic alongside Odette for melting anything weak to light.
>>
isnt odette limited? so varkyn should be considered most peoples first option

>>1041275
Yes. I'm rather excited to get him, because my light option so far has only been MILLARD. I just need a few weeks to gather guidestones to get some of my 4*s to A3.

beaten any BTs

Get your gear up to snuff. Kill the two elites in the Tytos Cathedral Basement and the two elites in the Emberglow Labs Inner Chambers every day (they're the same area, one leads into the other, unlock by clearing BoF Ch1). Sacred armor/vests/robes for your squad and Sacred III weapons, then go kill the BT NPCs and fuse those BTs with Sacred III weapons to make Sacred IV and you should be able to handle everything in the game considering people could already beat it without "IV" weapons.

Got him in the 4th step, so I decided to go for the 5th step just for the guaranteed 5*.
Got 4.5* H'aanit and a Viola dupe. Feels really fucking good. Can't upgrade H'aanit right away, but I'm still glad to have her.
>>
>>1045644
Grats anon
All I got was my first Theo in the 5th step, I needed some axe damage so I'll take it I guess
>>
Should I spend my rubies on these chosen traveler step up gachas, or should I be saving them up for some sort of event with better rates?
>>
Rolled the full step up plus two 10x chosen traveler rolls and no Zaanther though it did drop three Kourens lol. trying to decide if it's worth blowing the rest of the ~1,000 rubies I have left on trying to get this fella
>>
>>1045731
I don't think the rates are going to get better, it depends on how much you want/need this particular character
>>
>>1045783
Any recommendations on which particular characters to focus on getting? I'm new and the only 5 star character thatI have besides my starting dancer is Viola.
>>
>>1045644
Haven't got jackshit until 5th step and then I got Scarecrow. I had no 5* hunters and the only hunter I used was a lvl72 awakening 3 Camilla, so it wasn't a total waste, but it still sucks.
>>
>>1045644
Did he get any changes from JP?
I'm really on the fence, I only have 1700 rubies and I might end up needing 6000 for 2B and A2. Plus I want Cyrus, Ophelia and Oberon but those are permanent so idk if I should wait for them to spook me like H'aanit. Z'aanta's so cool though, and I really like Hunters in this game which is weird because I usually don't like bows in RPGs.
>>
>>1045833
when is 2B and A2?
>>
>>1045945
No idea, but can't be longer than a few months. My guess is with 2B's anime coming this winter.
>>
>>1045833
Nope.
Not like he needed it, even in JP he's still the 2nd best hunter DPS, right behind Herminia And even then, it's still debatable because Z'aanta's still the better breaker due to his 5 hit random target.
>>
>>1045945
I'm 100% certain they'll release Cyrus right before Nier collab, similar to how they did Odette before BD
>>
>>1045644
Got him in 110 pulls
Total haul:
1 5* Z'aanta
1 5* Eliza (up to 5* and A2 yay)
1 5* Hasumi (A1 when I got her just two days earlier from a daily paid pull, nice)
1 Theo (A3)
1 Fiore (100 guidestones)
1 Gilderoy (100 guidestones)

Since I got him as a 5* I also used the gold hunter seal I got to put H'annit to 5* too, so now the only unit still at 4.5* for me is Therese.

>tfw Pokemon gen 9 is leaking and I'm too busy grinding up my new units and looking for cute Tressa fanart to care
>>
>>1045644
The pulls were rough, but we did it.
>step 1: nothing
>step 2: nothing
>step 3: nothing
>step 4: 4.5* Scarecrow dupe (this brings him to A3)
>step 5: pic related
Out of rubies, back to saving.
>>
How many rubies are available in the traveler stories (moreso the 3-4* ones)? I basically have done hardly any of them and I'm curious how many rubies I've got in the bank so to speak
>>
>>1046070
It's 5 rubies for each of the four stages of each story, plus for every five stories you finish you get 30 rubies.
>>
>>1046070
enough for me to roll for odette on a newish account.
it was a lot of rolls.
>>
Cost to pull is so damn high, I want to cry whenever I get jack shit on a 10 shot
>>
>>1046789
Yeah, dead rolls hurt more in this game than any other one that I play because the rest are all much more generous with pull currency. Getting nothing stings when you have to earn those 300 rubies back 5 and 10 at a time.
In a better world, we'd get a bit over 3000 rubies each month so we could do a pity every other month. That's still not as much as some other SE gacha, but it'd be something I could settle for.
>>
>>1046789
>>1046932
Honestly with the "compensation" they gave us on the BD step ups for agnes/edea, those banners actually felt incredibly fair relative to other gachas I play and how much resources we get. A 2.4k pity with a free repeatable first step, I effectively had to pity both of them but I wasn't even mad because pitying both still ended up being less rubies than I'd normally have to pity on one character.

The normal price of 6k for a pity is absolutely fucking stupid for how stingy the game is and for how its a single player game. Even if step ups kept the free step but moved it to step 3 or 5 or something it'd be a welcome change.

As a casual/f2p I basically can't pull for anything because I have to save for my favorite collab characters. I'm going to have to skip my favorite OG octopath character and I've already had to skip several others.

I guess just Sofia isn't enough to pass the DPS check. I've done 5 attempts and it all died here. There is a Sofia only clear on YouTube, but ah, fuck it. I'm exhausted. I'll just try again once they release Cyrus or something.
>>
>>1047050
Did you time his break to happen right after the turn he got the elem atk buff? Also any sword 5 star helps tremendously
>>
>>1047071
On that particular run, I didn't. But I had a run where I did. Still wasn't enough.
The only 5* Warrior I have is Tikilen, and I assume she isn't suited for this because her 3 hit is random target.
>>
>>1047076
Yeah, not tikilen. Just one sword dps along with sofia should be enough to deal with him. Hope fiore surprises you in your next pulls
>>
Any idea who’s banner is coming up on the 16th?
>>
>>1047259
Cyrus or another Sacred Blaze banner, which most likely is going to feature Lianna.
Both are just wishful thinking however, we don't have any datamines this week so we have no idea for sure. Ever since Cardona, they have been announcing new banners on Tuesdays around 3 AM UTC, so look forward to that.
>>
>>1046942
>I'm going to have to skip my favorite OG octopath character and I've already had to skip several others.
Who's your fave, bro? My fave girl is H'aanit, was so glad to get her on Agnes' step up, and I'm waiting for my fave boy Olberic to be added.
>>
>>1047356
Edea’s been a total sis for my party. Having done her banner twice early on (and getting all four Awakening Stones) she’s carried me through many a battle, hitting hard and tanking hits.

Plus she gets to use Fire and Light attacks!
>>
>>1047369
Yeah, Edea's great. Love a sword-wielding fire and light user. Cute personality, great design too. Four awakening stones, holy moly! I just have the one copy, no awakenings, been raising her up on the side. I was wondering what your fave OG Octopath character is though.
>>
>>1047394
My fave is Ophilia. She’s the one I picked for the original game, but Tressa’s the one on my team right now. Great with spears and wind and one hell of an evasion tank, using Sidestep/Provoke.

Plus I managed a whopping TWO awakening stones with her through luck of the draw so she’s got four skill slots on her.
>>
>>1047356
My favorite is Ophelia. I hear she's really damn good in this too.
But unfortunately as a permanent pool unit pulling for her would kneecap my account from being able to get limited favorite stuff like A2 and 2B.
While RNG might dictate that I never get Ophelia, there's at least a chance I stumble onto her eventually. Whereas those limited units I basically get one shot so I can't screw around when it comes to saving for them even if it'd be for Ophelia.
>>
Been running nothing but axe hunts since day 2 or 3 when I first unlocked hunts and finally my A1 Theo gets to class up.

Congratulations, enjoy your well deserved "DABUR HARBESTO!" From now on you will hear it often.
>>1047287
I would bet on some Fire character such as Prome or Haze (maybe Therion even). We had very few Clerics and Apothecaries (and Thieves too), so the chances that they will decide to release exactly them are higher. Everyone already has enough Warriors and Scholars, so I doubt it will be Mooloo, because she's op, she's qt, she have no use right noow. Haze is an excellent Axe DPS with very high for Apothecary attack stat and a nice nuke available by default. Prome kind of sucks and yet he will deal more Fire damage than Viola, Peredir, Bravely Fan and Edea combined, and also he probably will get buffed, so there's going to be some use of him, at least for utility. Both can be used against all endgame bosses thanks to the regen. Although Haze would be almost useless against Varkyn if his dispel worked all the time.

By the way, where are other 4*? Where? Where?
>>
>>1047405
Ophelia's freaking ridiculous in this game, yeah. Only cleric you need, I'm waiting for her too but more for meta (though she is a sweetie with a lovely theme song).
Even if you miss Ophelia's first banner, there should be a step up for the OG 8 once all 8 have been released. Good luck on getting her one day!
>>1047740
Still waiting for Sophia. She's level 75 now so if I ever get a seal, she'll jump to a whopping 95 because she's been in my hunts every day, which are always axe/tome hunts (still need axe for Lumis and Therese is a second tome seal I need).
>>
>>1047826
>Bravely Fan
hearty kek
>>
>>1047954
Luckily I have Agnes at least. I'm sure she pales in comparison to Ophelia, but I'm really happy to have her in the cleric role until whenever I get Ophelia.

That OG 8 step up sounds pretty nice though, if it comes at an opportune time I might pull there.
>>
No news! I thought it was an hour late because of daylight savings shenanigans, but I guess they just decided not to announce it in advance this time for some reason.
We are still due for a new character tomorrow, so we'll find out regardless. I just find it strange.
>>
>>1049348
I wonder how many people burned through their stash of rubies to get Z'aan, might make it tempting for them to bring in another popular character so that people with depleted rubies will have to spend $$$ to get it
>>
I’m beginning to think that there won’t be a new character tomorrow. That we’ll be getting some promotion involving the older characters.

Like say...a Thanksgiving Hunters Banner or something.
>>
>>1049597
Merchant banner, to celebrate the spirit of capitalism and exploitation brought to the shores of America by the merry band of pilgrims.

I'm currently on chapter 8 where I have to kill Pardis
am I supposed to farm level 60 equipment? I would assume yes, as that's what I've been doing in the story so far, but the experience is annoying as fuck, I need so many materials
also the bossfights are kicking my ass
>>
>>1049755
Are you killing off Pardis’s knights first? Because if you’re not, you’re gonna have a REALLY bad time.

Just keep at it and level yourself and your equipment up bit by bit.
>>
>>1049829
yeah I figured it out from the ominous message when you enter (or when you try to exit? I forgot)
I'll just keep slowly grinding
>>
>>1049829
>Are you killing off Pardis’s knights first? Because if you’re not, you’re gonna have a REALLY bad time.
I was always curious what happened if you don't kill his three general dudes. What changes in the final battle?
>>
>>1049912
They actually get summoned by Pardis during the first phase of the battle.

On the second phase he absorbs them and gains extra powers from them.

In other words always kill them off unless you’re looking for a serious challenge.
>>
>>1049755
It's good to have the meteroite equipment but not necessary at all. I did the fight with some lvl 51+some lvl 60 from treasure chests and everything else being lvl 55 stuff

Well, it's official now. No update this week.
We're getting a huge update next time according to her though. So that's something to look forward to.
>>
With the addition of Tressa to my roster and classing up Theo, the grind suddenly got a whole lot more tolerable so one more arena champion done. Varkyn can wait until I get Sofia or Cyrus.
>>
I am starting this game just for Tressa. Well, for more Octopath content in general, but mostly for more Tressa. Happy to see there's a general for it.
>>
>>1050184
>I am starting this game just for Tressa
Oh no, they're multiplying. Do keep in mind that your starting unit can't be Tressa so you'll have to pull her as an off-banner unit from the gacha if you're rerolling for her.
>>
>>1050185
Yeah, I don't have the patience to reroll, but I did pull Scarecrow then Viola to start out. I'll wait for her to come home whenever she wants to... until then I'll be a casual F2P working my way through quests.
>>
>>1049918
Wow, that phase 1 was what I was expecting; neat. Kinda wish there was a rematch that included that extra hard version of the fight.

Oh no, and me sitting here with only 700 rubies.

My current team.

Trying to get rid of Varkyn and I manage to put him in the red before his Living Soulstone fucks me over.

I usually replace Tressa with Fiore(80) for an extra warrior. Still not enough. Any suggestions for ways to improve my chances against Varkyn?

If you've got Lynette or Primrose you might want to consider bringing either of those over Hasumi. The dispel is annoying, but that extra bit of damage during break really helps - especially from a slot that's otherwise essentially dead in terms of damage. The dispel also doesn't affect your back row so you can preserve buffs into the final phase by keeping your heavy hitters in the back until you break and for that reason I'd recommend trying to pair your main damage dealers with characters who can contribute to breaking him. Currently your team has 3 healers which seems absolutely overkill for defense when the difficult part of the fight is a pure damage race.

Ideally you want to time killing the second add with breaking Varkyn as close to 50% health as possible so you get a full break's worth of damage in before the final phase.

For reference, pic related is my Varkyn team. Using the above advice, I can consistently take him down in one break in his second phase.
>>
>>1050724
I do have Lynette and Primrose. And you have a good strategy. Just one question. Given that weaknesses apply when an enemy is broken, wouldn’t the breakers also be your main damage dealers?
>>
>>1050636
I did it with the same dps comp. Time your final break right after the turn he gets clearheaded and go ham. He will live and kill your front row but the back row can easily kill him at that health.
Replace hasumi with a awk3 sigrid and viola with magdeleine (or whatever the 3 hit staff girl is called). Buffers/debuffers are near useless if you just want to clear varkyn without caring about time
>>
>>1050636
Kinda uncanny how similar your team is to mine. Only difference is instead of scarecrow and theo, I have Lynette and a 4* (and I even have scarecrow I just haven't leveled him yet)
>>
>>1050833
Funny. I almost used Lynette as my dancer. But before her I had Meena, a dancer with Light Magic and healing. Hasumi was like a Meena+ so I used her instead of Lynette.
>>
>>1050766
I'm not saying to pair your damage dealers with dedicated breakers necessarily, just characters who can break. Ramona for instance isn't good at breaking or dealing damage, but with max boost she can at least take down 5 shields over 2 turns which is enough to let me break in a reasonable amount of time so Fiore can come back in for a big fat nuke.
>>

Aaand done! It was a rough battle, but I was able to get the timing down. Edea, Fiore and Sofia were my superstars in this match!

The developers are giving gifts as a way to print the new update and apologize for the lack of one this week.

First up, Bestower of Wealth Chapter 2 confirmed, along with 100 Gold Guidestones.
>>
>>1051479
Nice. 100 golds is actually useful. It seems like they're actually trying to improve relations with the playerbase.
>inb4 "JP already got 42999 free rubies by bestower part 2"
>>
How many Bestower chapters are there? I’m assuming three just like the Master chapters.
>>
>>1051558
They really are. 100 gold guidestones is usually saved as the second to last reward during login campaigns like these. Which means we should be getting nothing but useful shit for the entirety of the duration.
>>1051569
Yes. We'll be also be getting Bestower of All after all three are done, which JP is currently on right now.
>>
>>1051345
And as a follow-up, say hello to the team that took down Tikilen!

>>1052274
>>1052400
tbf 50k leaves are much more valuable to players still on the Masters chapters than 100 gold guidestones are.
>>
>>1052406
50k leaves will buy 5 lvl 27 weapons. Weapons that players will still need to gather and sell materials in order to make, gaining the leaves to do so in the process. You could buy 2 level 55 helmets, 1 level 60 armor, or fall short of 1 level 55 weapon with 50k leaves.
Or you can get something actually useful in the short and long term like nuts that let new and old players power up their units. 50k leaves is near useless. I could understand 500k being useful for new players, but 50k is just sad.
>>
So we got Golden Guidestones and we got leaves.

What could our next prize possibly be?

Memory Fragments?
Rubies?
Sacred Seals?
Experience Nuts?

I could REALLY use some more rubies and sacred seals here.
>>
>>1052575
Nope! This time it’s SILVER Guidestones!

Gotta admit. 1000 Silver Guidestones is nothing to sneeze at!
>>
Clearly the pattern is useful-shit-useful..., so we will get 5 EXP nuts (L), followed by 200 rubies, then 50 Bronze guidestones, culminating with 5 Sacred Seals.
>>
The game's so mindless and boring at this point. Finished all the chapters, can't beat the new dragon nor the 2 arena faggots.

>>1052756

Tikilen the Warrior
Glossom the Dancer
Varkyn the Scholar

Various Daylife isn't a mobile game, but it's made by the same team who did BD and OT. Is it worth the try? I somewhat noticed some similarities.
>>
>>1053019
For levels? Defeat Auguste in the Intermediate rematch. Find a rhythm and you’ll be able to clear him quickly. You’ll get a Supreme Experience Nut (S) every time you win which gives you 250,000 exp.
>>
>>1053047
just beat him. its really boring
>>
>>1053040
Never played it but it's actually a mobile game made for ios and got recently ported
>>
>>1052959
>her
Regardless, if you put some effort into it you can most likely beat at least Tikilen and Glossom seeing as both have already been beaten using 4*s only in global and even Varkyn has been taken down to red health.

What's your roster like? Working out how to deal with the arena champions with what you've got is the most fun part of the game so throwing your hands up in the air and giving up because you can't just slap your dick on the screen to clear something while simultaneously complaining about the game being mindless is kind of silly.
>>
>>1053200
Well, I just got tressa and haanit. I have few 4 stars characters and basically a very limited selection of breaks that almost do not work on these cup motherfuckers. Also, kinda lowish levels, so I'm kinda at the weird stage where I need more levels and character upgrades and more diverse breaks. Good enough to clear what I've cleared so far, but not good enough to clear what's left.
>>
>>1052959
You’ll want your main team to be at least at Level 80. Your backup guys can be about level 70.

Second thing is that you want to put in party members with moves that hit weaknesses. Anyone who doesn’t hit the weaknesses of the champions or their adds is useless, no matter how leveled up they are (healers and support being exceptions.

Third is that each one has a gimmick when you knock out their adds and weaken them.

Tikilen - Super strong resolve! Only Critical hits will work on her.

Glossom - Seals off his Sword and Axe weaknesses. Only weak to Dark attacks.

Varkyn- Summons a wisp that hits you with light attacks, SP draining attacks and BP attacks. It also counters if it’s weakness is struck and cannot be killed unless Varkyn is KO’d.
>>
>>1053354
>You’ll want your main team to be at least at Level 80. Your backup guys can be about level 70.
I disagree. I cleared all three with my main guys at 70-75 and 4 star breakers at 65-70. Even lower for tikilen where except my lvl 80 scarecrow everyone's at 65. Awakenings are more important then levels, so if anyone has to choose between level up or awaken a 4 star, they should first do awakening (assuming the char is already lvl 65 for that influence)
>>
For our next gift: 10 Supreme Experience Nuts (L)
>>
>>1053434
Whoops! Supreme Experience Nuts (S). My bad.
>>
counting down from the roster on Game8's tier list, there are approximately 157 units correct?

How soon until we find out who’s banner is next?
>>
>>1053642
They should announce it on the next Tavern Talk, which should be held on 21th 6PM/22nd 3AM UTC.
The next roadmap should be announced there as well.
Of course, this is speculation because who knows what they'll actually do there other than talk with the producer.

Alfyn and Therion are both fantastic at what they do and Lianna is an amazing breaker for both staff and ice while also doing the typical cleric things. Her only shortcoming is just how ridiculous Ophilia and Rinyuu are but she's an amazing unit in her own right (also pairs very nicely with Viola to hit debuff cap on both atk and e.atk). Any one of them is worth pulling for.

Q&A Section (Paraphrased)

Q: Plans for banners for specific classes?
A: Considering it

Q: More party slots? In JP, they have 30.
A: Coming in the future (Didn't say when)

Q: Accesory organization?
A: Same answer as above

Q: (Didn't catch this, something about accesories?)
A: Historic Material is coming soon (they announced the exact date, didn't catch it), roadmap will be revealed in this stream.

Q: Character buffs compared to JP. Thought process? Also coming to JP?
A: Want to give all travelers to the chance to shine, so they buff them. It wasn't good enough for Lionel, so they will do more. (Didn't say for Lionel specifically, they probably mean future buffs will be more potent)

Q: Part of the game that you (didn't catch) most?
A: Mobile devices are usually looked down upon, but they are still proud of CoTC.

Q: How long does it take to make character sprites?
A: 3 months for art (sprites, illustration), 3 months for gameplay balancing, 2 months for translation

Q: Writing that needs to be tweaked so western fans can relate better?
A: Won't change anything unless there's any major issues, focuses on uniformity. Same translation team as OG Octopath and Octopath 2.

They rolled the dice again, got a 65, but decided to flip the 6 so we're getting 95 rubies.

CN version announced, published by Boltrend (who cares)

And finally...the roadmap!

According to the director, we will catch up to JP pretty soon.

They didn't say anything about the ???.

Item Gathering = 1 click to gather eveything in Nameless Town

Half Year Anniv: Deathblows (Localized as Ultimates) are coming early!

Traveler Survey: https://forms.gle/TXpU5DR1NHuZfcr78

End of stream!

That's one helluva stream, very nice! Especially glad to hear about that Nameless Town QoL.

Did NOT expect a Sacred Blaze Guidance to come out that early. At the very least, I know what I’ll be blowing by Rubies on....

If it’s anything like Adele’s then I’m keeping my money.

Sure enough...

Got the Traveler’s Sacred Seals. Do you use them now or save them for later? The decision is up to you!

>>1055483
Logging in right now to get my three Julios.
I'm a day 1 player and I've never gotten anything good from a seal.

And it was not Julio, but instead

>Feline
>Jorge
Aaaaand logging off again

Oddly enough, these messages were mostly about the new chapter. Five out of seven. One about rematches and one about the city. Nothing about new characters, Alpaca Farm or Bonfires of Battle.
>Do you use them now or save them for later?
Later. Definately later. It's basically never too late to use them. Roster only gets bigger\better and probably will be updated tomorrow. Borderline 0% chance to get anything decent if you don't accumulate them in dozens from the very beginning, tho.
>>
>>1055483
I'll be waiting until tomorrow since they general pool should be expanding with the update. I would really appreciate pulling a Sofia but I think I prefer the generally higher odds of not pulling a dupe over the increased odds of getting her.
>>
How many hours til maintenance? I got fucked once today in a different game, I don't wanna get fucked again.
>>
Blew my 13 pulls for a dupe Odette, dupe Fiore and H'aanit. Was really hoping for Lianna, but I am glad to have Odette at A1 now and I guess I'm good for bow-centric content for a while now with both Scarecrow and H'aanit.
>>
Post your Therion rolls.
I had to go all the way to spark, but I pulled so many spooks on the way. (His spark is only 100 btw!)
I got uhh, Eliza 4.5*, Scarecrow 4.5* x2, H'aanit 4.5*, Primrose, Fiore (I can finally do Varkyn!), Millard 4.5* dupe. I may have forgotten some, didn't keep track.
I'd say this was a pretty good haul. Even if Alfyn is suddenly back to 200 spark, I can still get him since I had 9000 rubies before this.
>>
Well, it certainly got messy since I didn't manage to break after Clearheaded, but got the clear anyways!
I'll rematch him once I get Alfyn. He should make things easier since he can actually contribute after the soulstone is out.
>>
I got Therion in just 20 pulls and Lianna in 50.
Anyways more importantly here’s Tressa bullying Therion like the dork he is (and also being cute but that’s a given)
>>
>paid stepup
Such extreme faggotry. He will atleast be added to the common pool later, right?
>>
>>1056006
Yes. All of the original 8 will be permanent.
>>
still gonna wait until Nier collab to roll next
I want my A2
but I have not been playing for a while so I need to grind out the rubies
>>
n-nice banners.....
>>
They cut the pity for Therion in half so its 3k gems now. But all this means for me is more time to save for Nier or Cyrus.
>>
Should I save Odette's awakening for those skills you will be able to get later on or should I just get her 30% stats? Got a dupe when trying for Lianna.

Also got a Tressa dupe and 5* upgrade from those traveller seals, so I'm wondering if she's any good for normal play or if I should save her for strong bosses, cause I already have Gilderoy with an awakening and his kit seems better to just walk around doing mindless stuff like dailes (just agro and leave it there until you need to do it again, instead of having to do agro + dodge).
>>
>>1056089
>Should I save Odette's awakening for those skills you will be able to get later
Unless the unit in question is Lynette the answer will always be no.
>>
Black Friday bundles are the same price as normal bundles.
They have the same amount of Paid Gems too.
lol
lmao

Is Nier going to be after Mar since its not on the Roadmap. Idk if I can hold out.
>>
>tfw 1000 rubies
I guess I'll just skip everything? Would really like Therion though, Viola is my only dagger and her damage sucks.

What do alpacas look like?

Not that I could guess what answer the alpaca woman wants to hear.
>>
1st roll 5* Lianna woooooo!
Is her accessory worth getting? 20% SP cost reduction seems like it would actually be pretty useful for spamming ice spells, and it would give me another chance to pull Odette.
On another note, being able to trade in Silver Seals is the greatest QoL in the game.
>>
Good lord, compared to my existing 5*s (Millard, Theresa, Kouren), Therion is a golden GOD at everything. Damage, breaking, sustain, utility, he does it all.
>>
>>1056197
>On another note, being able to trade in Silver Seals is the greatest QoL in the game.
Whoa, what? I haven't logged in yet today, what's this about?
>>

so pull!
>>
>>1056277
Exchange added Historic Exchange for Battle-Tested weapons. I was surprised to see that not only can you trade in Hist. Materials, but you can also trade in Silver and Bronze seals (not Gold, guessing you might be able to in a different exchange in the future) along with all of those Bronze seal of x and Silver medal of x accessories from Hunts. This is the sell button I needed.
>>
>>1056297
What are Historic Fragments used for? And what're Fragments of Greed while I'm at it.
>>
having a 4.5 star was just a boner killer
so i stopped playing and just logged in to do hunts until i get my gold seal, haven't gotten it yet
stopped playing around odette's first run
>>
>>1056330
Game won't get any better so i wouldn't come back if i was you.
>>
>paid step up
oh they can fuck right the hell off. Yeah, yeah, Black Friday and all that. Guess I'm skipping Therion and though Lianna is a total qt, I'll try for her next time we get a Sacred Blaze banner.
>>
Do alpacas really smell good?
>>
>>1056324
Basically they get you Battle-Tested Weapons which you’ll be using to forge level IV weapons. You can get them while fighting the Veteran Fighters.

Shards of Greed you get fighting the Advanced Masters to score special accessories (Extra Gold For a hunter, Extra Attack for a Warrior, Extra Experience for a Thief)
>>
>>1056330
Exchange silver Guidestones for silver shards. Then Exchange 30,000 silver shards for one Golden Cookie. The rest will fall into place.

Remember, the hardest part is getting that character in the first place.
>>
>>1056631
Ah, thanks! So it's a way to eventually guarantee a BT weapon if you have shit luck getting them to drop like me. I've only faced the spear lady and tome guy, but I tried grinding the tome guy and he's yet to drop a book for me.
I doubt I can handle the Advanced rematches if I haven't beat any arena champions yet but that's what I love about this game: it's all permanent, I can take my sweet time with it. Probably gonna see about that new Alpaca quest tonight just 'cause it's more daily income and I gotta do Lianna's prologue to get that damn red "!" to go away from my Quest icon. Man, I wish I could roll for her but no step up makes it too rich for my blood.
Thanks again for the info!

Second reroll. Worth keeping? I know the dancer is supposed to be one of the best characters in the game, but is the other 5 star good or should I try to go for Viola + Lyn? Also, is it even a good time to reroll? After tutorial, mail only gives about 4 ruby rolls and another 6 (?) blue thing rolls. Feels kinda bad having to go through each roll rather than going for that tenner.

The other is just an okay 5*. They're releasing THE busted apothecary next week.
>>
>>1057073
Sacred Blaze Banner is an excellent time to reroll. Every unit is guaranteed 4* or higher, which cuts out all the 3* max trash units and guarantees that any unit you pull will be 4* right out of the box. The limited units, so far Odette and Lianna, are also pretty powerful if you manage to pull them.
>>
>>1057253
when is sacred blaze banner?
>>
4 pulls to get Liana.
I got 3 dupes along the way. A Viola, Odette, and Kouren.
Significantly better than expected. No gems for an attempt at Alfyn next week though. It feels like it takes forever to build up a stash in this.
>>
>>1057338
It's up right now! Featuring Lianna. And Odette at a slightly lower rate. (0.8% vs 0.6%)
>>
>>1057425
Oh then I'm just a brainlet. For some reason I associated 4* or higher with 4.5* and thought there was some really high value 10x4.5-5* banner
>>
So where is this one click collection qol feature they talked about?
>>
>>1057536
According to the roadmap, it will come in December with Bestower of Power Chapter 2.
>>
Any estimates on how long I have to save until Nier?
>>
>>1057568
It could be in January to coincide with the Nier anime or in March if the ??? turns out to be it.
>>
>>1057384
Four 5 stars in four pulls? That's some godlike luck, congrats Anon! I'm still too scared to pull for her.
>>
What do you guys do when your team caps before they reach 100?

Do you keep using them or do you switch them out with someone else and raise them instead?

I got Sofia capped. Three more will soon follow.... And it takes so long to build up the Guidestones to raise the cap....

Well, it makes sense to keep them in the group for a while, since they gain experience for the next level anyway.
The value of experience decreases drastically at 90+ levels. There are just too many ways to get it effortlessly. Nut farm, Hunts, three advertising Caits, a dragon etc. As for directed farming, Auguste can help raise a new 5* from zero to 70+ (working height) extremely quickly, even if the entire stash of nuts has been eaten right before.
It would be nice to have a way to recycle nuts, because with the upcoming farm upgrade there will be too many of them. So many that the only obstacle to level 100 will be guidestones.
For example, we could feed them to a cat from the Nameless Town (with certain limitations, no overfeeding), and his preferences would change every week\20 hours between the top three nuts. At some point, he would grow up, start talking, got the Path Action or whatever. Something. The stash shouldn't be useless.
>>
>>1055933
Managed to scrounge together another 10 pull and a few singles since then and that's another 5* that isn't Lianna. At least he's new I guess. I was hoping between him and Primrose I'd have what it takes to take down the Donescu level 100 guy for some extra rubies, but even on my best attempts I came a little short so it would take some phenomenal luck to beat him.
>>
Nabbed Lianna in two pulls, but ruby reserves are running low. It looks like it's better to wait for Alfyn than to try for Therion now, right? I already have one 5* apothecary (Theo) and one 5* thief (Viola).
>>
Is the game dead?
i heard that you can't reroll properly anymore
>>
What's the next nameless town quest we will need memory shards for? Can anyone tell me how many do I have to save for it please
>>
>>1058619
Game is not dead
I haven’t heard anything about not being able to reroll, but it’s a lot harder without the free 10-pulls and 300 rubies from the BD collab

Anyways this just happened

Hey, >>1057073 anon here. Just rerolled this, seems actually pretty gud. Sucks that it's a 4.5 and not 5 star version of that character, but eh. Keep?
>>1058619
Rerolling fucking sucks right now imo. Got giga lucky with my pull, because yesterday they were giving away 150 rubies in the mail, and today its just 60. You can do a couple of extra steps with your feats and influence to get to 300 rubies, but between that and rerolling for the starting character you want, it's a hassle. Didn't mind it much cause I've been doing it while watching a show, so it's aight.
>>
>>1058589
I’ve been ITCHING to get this motherfucker since I learned he existed. My main team’s lacking a dark character. And a Dark Cleric would fit the bill perfectly.

I’m hoping that with this next month I’ll be able to pull it off. I will need to do it soon since my chances of him dwindle with every week.

>>1059283
It’s the Alpaca Farm. You’ll need about 1900 memory fragments to complete it.
>>
>>1059629
A 4.5 can turn into a 5-star given enough time and dedication. Just work on your hunts and/or convert your silver Guidestones into silver guide shards and you’ll be good.
>>
>>1059629
Odette+Lynette is pretty great. Odette is super powerful and gets you good coverage on two elements. Lynette fits into everything as a buffer. Don't worry about 4.5 stars, you will eventually luck into upgrading them using hunts
>>
>>1059633
I mean after the alpaca farm
>>
>>1059802
There’s the Bartender and then there’s an errand boy which you pay to retrieve ALL the items in the Nameless Town on your daily run.

I forget how many memory fragments you’ll need.
>>
>>1059633
You're not missing out on much, he's not a great character by any means. I appreicate him for being an oddball both in terms of his character and his combat abilities, but a general purpose never really needs to have all elements covered. Good luck on your hunt for him.

In other news, I did another couple of singles for Lianna. Up to 149 pulls now and pulled another 5* that wasn't her or even anyone new. This time it's a dupe Gilderoy.
>>
Paid step up. 4 steps; 40 rolls. Costs $100 to complete and unit isn't even guaranteed on the last step.
Who is this for? That even seems crazy for whales.

Don’t worry about it

Also a reminder that Therion is a loser and a dork
>>
>>1060938
The Therio. banner I saw coming. But with Alfyn it’s inexcusable.

Sorry, but I’m gonna have to pass on this one.
>>
That Alpaca in Shephard's Rock was crazy well hidden.
Oh hey, Alphyn's out.
>paid fucking step up again
And once more, I must skip. Praying he spooks me one day.
