Rays story ending event and conclusion of the main arc. Take down all the bosses with others to unlock the real final boss. How will it all end?Multiple epilogue episodes to come.Discuss the story, your bad luck, your good luck, who do you want to hold hands with, what coop badges are you trying to get, etc.
:baw: :baw: :baw:
>>1037992>what coop badges are you trying to gePeople who do public trades should post their friend codes
Is this the first appearance of Gaius in his final boss form? Xillia eMA event soon?
>>1038633Gaius got his form change back in January.And X2 is more likely for an eMA soon since they still need to do their anniversary event, along with D, D2, and I. Although in D2 and I's case, the Swordians and Mathias are looking more likely be their anniversary events.
>>1038732Ah damn, i completely forgot about that FC, i kept thinking of his SG which is based on his boss outfit.
so what will they do now since Rays is wrapping up?
>>1039030Nothing is changing for events and the game itself. Just no more main story.
>>1039030Rays isn't wrapping up, its just the main story that took 4 whole arcs to explain and conclude. Do people not understand that it's two separate things?
>>1039061Some mobage EoS soon after their main story is finished
>>1039061I think "mobage story" in general is often looked at as something that's just gonna be extended indefinitely as long as the game keeps going.Because it seems like most of the time, it is used that way.
>>1039087They just want to work on smaller and more contained stories. Even i'd get sick of "Okay, this arcs ending, what asspull villain do we make to keep the ball going now?". Its been 7 years of it.
>>1039099I meant 5 years. Dunno what made me think of 7.
>>1039103Maybe you're thinking of something like grubble where the story's going nowhere and getting new chapters once in a blue moon at this point.
>>1039180Oh a game like One Piece TC, or Dokkan, which quite literally haven't updated their story mode in years. Some games just outright give up on it.
>>1038050>>1038044New Edna banner when
>>1039296It's kind of sad (but also good) that Dragalia finished its story months ago before EoS. And then the servers will be killed on Nov 30 in a few weeks. Kino final boss fight.
>>1039677To be fair, Dragalia announced its EoS and then announced that it would give a story conclusion. It was clear things were rushed together, and there were still alot of loose ends in terms of the world building that they were saving for future events (the Syndicate, RIP Kamen rider Aldred, 12 Wrymclans, we never got Susano-o), but the devs get credit for caring enough to provide something.They dont get credit for leaving in app purchases turned on for months and still releasing several paid only banners every week tho
Mileena’s new burst is pretty good, only thing to it is that you have to manually move her to the middle of the stage and start using it so that the trap it sets is immediately triggered. Another season of Asbel and TYDAL WAVU
The 2 random MA tickets from the raid include just the decisives and overrays of the protags, Alphen included.I don't think i saw the Nono girls or Sara, I had gotten Yuri's dMA, which was already maxed out so i was too depressed to remember
>>1041276>Nono girls or SaraThey're not the MCs. Descenders are the RM MCs and Allen works in the same vein as them
>>1044024So Ludgar is getting an eMA that comes with a form change. Back to back eMA events, damn no mercy.SG event to celebrate Destiny 1/2, sounds like it will have an actual story to it as well. The event is treated mentioned as a Part 1, so possible Part 2 some time after, probably with the Dylmos/Barbatos xMA (possibly the Swordians event the previous dev wanted to do).And Christmas seasonals for Innes, Kunzite, Zaveid, and Alisha.Also an epilogue for the main story is available.
>>1044024That Judas MA really reminds me of Judith's 2nd MA from Vespy. give my wife her boob jiggle MA already dammit.
how nice that I can skip these shit banners :)also Alisha will be 1000% shafted in that event
Pretty clean ending. Was not expecting the scenes in the middle of the boss fight, and using Ix eMA gives you a special scene. Although Mileena’s didn’t unless I used it at the wrong time. The original Ix reuniting with Gefion was a great scene. Also what the heck were those save files after the credits? Just to record when you beat the story? Why 3 save slots than?
RIP the Link cast, literally the only game that didn’t show up for the ending. Even Kanata and Misella got a piece.
>>1044120I don't think the save data has any function. They probably just wanted to mimic saving your clear data like a console game. Clicking the other 2 slots doesn't do anything.
>>1044120The live stream in afew days will announce NG+, where you cant replay any quest and an entire subquest plot of finding Judiths spear

>>1044732>Zaveid will no longer be half naked!? Look forward to the Christmas surprise.NO
>>1044732>the end of the main plot after 5.5 yearsHow come Asteria main plot is still not finished btw?
>>1044973There are a lot of possible story lines in the Asteria universe because they rotate the focus onto a different set of Tales characters for each arc, unlike Rays which made everything revolve around the same cast of OCs.
>>1044973Asteria is on it's 6th arc and except for the 3rd and 4th each of them have been mostly standalone. Each arc (except the 3rd) has a conclusive end and the next arc goes off in a different direction to continue whereas Rays has been one continuous storyline so that makes it harder to drag out.Also Asteria stopped giving a fuck about consistent updates to it's story about 2-3 years ago, the current arc started near the beginning of 2021 and they're finally releasing the 4th chapter of it next month. Rays has taken a few breaks, but they still usually release a chapter almost every month.
I'm not sure who to spark for with 1500 grade points on the generic banner.I already got all the Malik and Sophie gear in the list and they're pretty much the only ones I care about.
>>1045332By generic you mean the banners that are split between each Tales game? I mean you can pick any MA you want with that. I'd recommend a seasonal MA, just anyone you have at least some interest in, or if you want to go through the wikia and see who has an interesting battle style. I wouldn't recommend sparking any 5*s since they give 5* tickets out frequently and let you buy a different selection of 5*s every elemental tower.
>>1045342>By generic you mean the banners that are split between each Tales game?Yeah, that one. I was interested in Mithos but I have like one shitty weapon for him and he's a boss unit which apparently means he can't get healed by teammates. Same with Santa Klarth, but he only has one book...
>>1045345>he can't get healed by teammatesHis GMa heals him and he groups all enemies in the same spot.>one shitty weaponJust grab his 1st 5* as soon as you can and buy the rest with prisms.Boss characteres also have boss tier hp so taking some dmg doesn't really matter.
>>1045345You can buy 3 and 4* weapons in the turtlez shop with your yellow pyramid currency. Alternatively, you can use a rerun ticket and rerun Klarths event (Fighting of the spirits, theres afew events with that name but it has his picture next to the logo) or the Casino event for Mithos (it has Marcus's portrait by it). You can get some free pull tickets from each event to pull some of their stuff.
>>1045351Or the Mithos raid. I had no clue they added a raid to the rerun list until just checking, although i dont know who the event shop is handled for it. I also didn't know they added the 1st idolmaster collab to the rerun list too.
>>1045350>>1045351Oh, cool. Maybe I can try that, thanks.I'll assume the 'half-price" weapons are the equivalent of dupes from the gacha too.I don't think I have any of those tickets (and I'm trying to stay F2P) so maybe I can wait for a rerun or pray for some luckshitting.
>>1045358They give out rerun tickets every rare blue moon, so you might have at least 1. I have 5 and Iv never bought them.And yeah, once you buy the expensive copy from the shop, you get the reduced price copy for max limit break purposes.
>>1045364I used my only one months ago without knowing what it was for and how rare it was on the Raven/Rita event.
>>1045365Damn, maybe they'll give one out for the live stream or as a Christmas/NY present. It would be nice if they gave us 1 every time they add a new batch to the list.
Welp 1 last multi on the Ray eMA banner, and it was another dupe of Mileena eMA and the 80th dupe of her summer MA. Sorry Kocis, maybe next time in afew years. Had enough to pity his anni burst at least. My diamond balance is exactly at 1. Just 1. At least the next batch of events are sleepers for me, just hope they dont whip out a good collab.
>>1046521How long does it normally take to rack up a tenfold in diamonds?
>>1046521Meanwhile I got Kocis eMA 3 fucking times and I had to pity his Burst *5 and I kinda wanted mileena but apparently her burst 5* is very good and enough but luck is a bitch
Mithos-anon here and thank you for the tips. I just got his 5* something thanks to that ticket from the pink/blue friendship handshake points shop and sparked Eternal Divide.
>>1046572Depends, if you're a relatively new player, then it shouldn't take long. You have every story fight + hard more that gives you 4 dia a piece, its just gonna take you alot of time to sit down and get enough for a multi.Now if you're a long time player, you'll just have the dailies for 10 dia a day, new events or reruns that give you 4 dia a fight (20 dia extra if its a new event from the event trophy), 20 dia every week from weeklies. How much you get from raids depend on how hard you go into it. If one was solely depending on dailies/weeklies/login bonus, it would take about 2 weeks and a day or 2 for a multi.Next big source of dia is friendship/affinity levels for each character, getting level 2 is 4 dia, getting to 5 is 20 dia, and level 8 is 50 dia. Level 9 gives you a character trophy that gives 20 dia.Then there's the monthly tower, if i remember right, it gives 350 dia total for hitting floor 50. Element tower doesnt give you dia, but Best Hero (which happens at least once a month) gives a max of 100 if you get the S Rank highscore.I wont go super into detail with the tasks/missions tab, but a constant dia source is the "Get X amount of characters to level 50-55-60-65-70" task. Getting characters to just 70 gives you 25 dia a piece (sometimes 50 for certain milestones) but that is very EXP expensive to do.
>>1046694>>1046696I've been so spoiled by how generous Dragalia was (usually 1 tenfold and some extra rolls - maybe even two tenfolds - per raid/facility event), so this is like a slap in the face.
>>1046640Congratz anon, pair him up with Asbel and have fun during Best Hero seasons. Now all you need are Tidal Wave spammers or other big AoE spell casters.
>>1046700Dragalia was about the same. Rays also gives you tickets and guarantee tickets often, event shops usually get 5-10 tickets, and even random seasonal MA tickets are more accessible. Ray Festival periods are still good, ridiculous when it has a voting going on. Dragalia used to be more generous when it started but of course they started reducing and removing rewards as time went on, but none of it ever came with a guaranteet. guy who still has the 3 selector vouchers that were handed out over the entire life of the game in his inventory when the shut down happens
Misella almost became one of Hentai rape doujins in the manga lmao
>side steppingFucking finally. This should have been implemented a long time ago.
>Tales of Symphonia Remastered
>Anniversary>Anniversary>AnniversaryHow about release more mainline tales first you scamco
>>1047722This is old news thanks to the Nintendo Direct... even though the "remaster" already popped up years before the Switch version too anyway.....
>>1047763Anon do you really have to be stupid? It’s just a new glossary mode for Rays that recaps the story of each game in a more detailed way.
>>1047850I'm only rolling on that for Zaveid. I don't care about anyone else in it.
Got lucky with tickets after so long. White Day Gaius MA, sure its not any of the newest gear, but its a new MA for me. It also made me see that i could level Gaius's SG to level 3 finally.
>>1047831>glossary modeThis is the new game mode they were hyping up. They want to recreate select scenes from old games in Rays system. You'll be able to walk around the maps and fight enemies.I think this'll be interesting for pre-ps2 era games, but I can't see how they can make any post-ps3 game scenes not look like a downgrade.
if those final areas mean something , then the next Ending MA's will be Stahn and Faggotrrey
>>1047951If they extend the Destiny duo Anni to a part 3, than most likely, but since Part 1 has Rutee with near gear, and Part 2 will be all Swordians with xMA Dylmos/Barbatos as well, its more likely they do Zesty eMA first
>>1047922Huh, i wonder if thats why they want to change up what we vote for during Ray Festivals. Now we'll vote for scenes for them to add into that mode. Maybe they'll switch between voting for scenes and voting for pairings to have some variety.
>>1047922>They want to recreate select scenes from old games in Rays system.They're going to use this as an excuse for not remaking or remastering any of the old games
>>1047953The devs clearly regret having a backlog. The obvious solution is to reduce the number of characters in the fes and just implement them all at once, in which case there likely won't be any more voting for characters.
>>1047850>Being this mad even though Alisha is the only popular character in that lineupI feel sorry for you, Alisha schizo
Seeing Asteria alts makes me wish Rays didn't drop the ball with not giving new outfits for eMA and xMA.
>>1049697Now that you mentioned it, Rays doesn't give out as many new outfits as they used to. >xMAThe only ones that did were Yuri and Flynn but Yuri is shill city.
>>1049899we all remember how kunzite got second place in the last poll, anon!! you tell them!!
https://twitter.com/lastcloudia/status/1592698972845449216Next collab on Rays?
>>1049899We all know Ines and her bazongas won first place. Clearly the most popular Tales character
>>1050036>>1050042>Having to samefag to prove your pointNow this is just sad. Tear doesn't place in polls either but you don't see people calling her a flop
>>1050048I don't know why you even bother arguing with that idiot. He has a hateboner for Alisha ever since she existed.
Sorey and Mikleo are one of the most popular characters in the most hated mainline Tales though Zestiria is a weird one
>>1050059Zestiria is an unpopular game with popular characters. To put it in words. Outside of Dezel, all the party members get decent content, merch, and fanart with Sorey and Mikleo being a tier of their own.
>>1050061Mikleo is a tier of his own. He is way more popular than Sorey by a mile.
I still don't get Mikleo's massive popularity. Is it really just his design and fujo ship with Sorey? Because he is fucking boring
Most popular to least popular Zesty charactersMikleo -> Edna -> Sorey -> Alisha = Rose -> Lailah -> Zaveid -> Dezel
>>1050008Gross. But not a guarantee, it’s most likely just a Tales collab for that game. They would have used the Rays logo. Games like EXOS heroes, Brave Frontier, or Another Eden have had Tales collab.
>>1050008I'm assuming there's going to be Arise shilling along with Yuri, some Xillians, and possibly Cless.
>>1050068>>1050070>>1050065Edna >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Shit >>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Everyone else
Seanigger opinions are irrelevant chump. especially schizos
>>1050291Expect Lloyd as well to promote the Symphonia remaster. Alphen, Yuri, Milla, Lloyd, toss up between Ludger or Cress. Last Cloudia looks similar to Brave Frontier, and they had some extras like Rita and Arche.
>>1050008They have to get through destiny anniversary, innocence anniversary, and slayers collab rerun first, so no.
Why do i feel theres absolutely nothing new or interesting in this series. Even the gachas is getting boring. Is it because of outdated graphics ?
>>1051793You've just been into it for too long. Try taking a break.I felt with the same with Etrian Odyssey and wore myself out big time with the final entry: Nexus.
>>1052403>Ports every 5 years*10. and most of those ports are Symphonia
>>1052546Just note. Phillia will be in the banner as stated that she will get a b5*
>>1052403>>1051892>>1052515This isn't just a Tales thing though. We're living in the age of remastering and porting everything to the newest console.
>>1052551Loni is in the event as well so he'll probably get a burst too.
>More random people >Even in a sg bannerIs no banner safe anymore from bloat?
>>1052897Gachas end up like that when the roster is so huge that there are filler rate ups.
>>1052897What event had a separate banner for just the new 5*s? It was recent but i cant remember. They should just do that imo, a banner for the new MAs and a banner for the new 5*s, the MA banner would have them but just not with featured rates.
Loni and Philia burst 5* on a separate banner.Farmable ticket gacha only contains 3 characters. Rutee, Woodrow, and Judas.Also a free pull on Destiny 1 and Destiny 2 banner.
>>1053444>What event had a separate banner for just the new 5*s?xMAs. Senel's group had a separate banner for Moses/Alice/Decus
>>1052897yeah I smell desperation from scamco
>>1053819You didn't sense that as soon as eMAs were introduced?
Just sell the IP already
Jeez Lion/Leon how scamco let you have 2 spirit gears >>1053831I'm talking about the part where they want to force those shitty 5 man gachas , but my bad I was expecting too much from them and lets be real you are funny if you thought they would stop making new types of MA's specially on a weapon/equipment gacha
>>1053819>desperation>they actually separate the filler characters on their own banner this time so it doesnt cuck peopleAlso they're doing this because these characters will almost never get a chance to show up on a new banner. At most they can shoehorn one lesser popular character into each banner, it would take years at that rate for everyone to get their new 5*s. They'd give themselves another backlog and people would complain about "why doesn't X have a burst yet??"
Don't care Love Loni's armpits
I blame fujos
>>1053957it's not even new art anon...
Last Cloudia x Tales of Series collab announced Abyss, Destiny, and Vesperia
>>1054576most importantly, it's destiny ps1, not director's cut
>>1054023Is it? It looks like a heavily referenced cel-shaded redo to his official full-body Inomata art. Same with Kyle's awakening art.
>>1054576>Stahn>Luke>Yuri>no female unitsThis feels weird considering the gachas I've played.
>>1054576>>1054622I was honestly expecting Milla or Velvet. People say they picked Stahn because the MC of Last Cloudia is called Kyle
>>1054023>>1054618I already know its reused from Kizna. I just want to lust after Loni's sexy armpits
>>1054856But this doesn't match up with that burst arte art. >>1053957
why she got so many porn
What's next for the franchise?
>>1055875Official real Destiny 2 English release instead of Eternity renamed
>>1055875>>1056306>>1055219Can you fuckers make a thread in /vrpg/
Why does she look so young...
It seems we're getting a new Slayers event
>>1056500No offense to anyone that likes that, but that’s a big skip from me. I would’ve liked to see a collab with a new IP
>>1056500Can Tales collab with something more memorable to its audience? Who the fuck remembers Slayers?
>>1056620>Who the fuck remembers Slayers?The one collab that Lloyd and Zelos got is even more obscure.
>>1056620The people that still care about tales. Fuck, how damn long ago was the last actually good tales game.. actually looking it up, and the last Slayer anime ran in the very same year. Hah. That's a very nice coincidence.
>>1056669>The people that still care about talesBe honest. No one remembers Slayers. No one in the fandom shouldn't remember anime that old.
I still think Slayers is a weird choice honestly. I don't care about SAO or Gintama but those shows are clearly popular and more known to Tales' fanbase if anything. Surprised they didn't just cash in on more battle shounen like Demon Slayer or JJK
>>1056675>Surprised they didn't just cash in on more battle shounen like Demon Slayer or JJKThey got Black Clover. Gintama is also from JUMPWould be nice if they picked Demon Slayer so that Ix can get a collab MA.
>>1056675I’ve always seriously wondered why they never collabed with Final Fantasy or Persona. I’m telling you, everyone and their gacha moms were collabing with Persona 5 left and right. SAO and even Star Ocean had one, which Rays collabed with. Gachas started doing stuff for One Piece when the new movie came out. Rays? Nada.
>>1056620I think they mentioned in one of the producer letters that the target audience for their collabs like Guruguru and Slayers is the same age group as most of the players for Rays, i.e. older millennials.>>1056672It's not the anime they're promoting, it's the light novels that are still ongoing.
Slayers used to be one of the most popular series in its genre. It was basically the SAO of it's time. How spooky But I agree on Guruguru, no one remembers that one.
>>1056958Guruguru had a remake anime that came out just a few years ago. The manga was also popular for kids in the 90s.
Star Ocean collab rerun never
lol at people here thinking they know Rays' audience. Slayers had one of the most positive receptions on jp twitter and even 5ch when it first happened. The ones that got the most lukewarm reactions were Black Clover and Tiger & Bunny. I saw a lot of people didn't know Guilty Gear either, but when it started people thought it was cool. The 3rd imas collab wasn't well received too, but I think most people had issues with Ankira/Ankimo rather than the series itself.
>>1056973>Black CloverIsn't that because the series itself is usually overshadowed by literally every other new battle shonen? I thought it's weird that out of all the Jump collabs they could've gone with, it's that.
I wish it's not Slayers though. All the characters look so fucking ugly.
>>1056973Slayers got panned though because it introduced the start of very shitty collab banners that don't give guaranteed MA of the collab characters unless you go P2W and that one had 4 characters.
>>1056978You zoomers are just too young to appreciate it.
>>1056982It started with Tiger & Bunny if I recall correctly.Slayers, Danmachi, Black Clover collab still had guaranteed MA.
>>1056988No, it started with Slayers.
>>1056988>>1056990No, it did start with Tiger and Bunny for when they stop doing guaranteed MAs for f2p. Slayers was them stopping full banner stepup for f2p
I just want to know if Slayers has someone from Rebirth. That game literally got nothing for Rays for almost two years and Rebirth is the only mainline title without a collab. Even fucking Tempest got a collab
>>1056995No xMA, eMA, and oMA either. Even Legendia got tons of oMAs and Senel, Walter, and Chloe got xMAs.
>>1056984Ugly, I'm glad this design died decades ago.
WHY THE FUCK IS SPIRIT GEAR STILL CAPPED AT 40AP FOR FARMING?!
>>1057088They don't want to make it too easy to grind since you can already completely bypass the gacha by running the event.It would have been nice if they updated the event back when they did the other ones. I feel like they would have forgiven that at the time, but you probably don't want them updating it now that they've gone totally stingy this year. They'd likely change it to make it harder to get fragments despite costing more ap.
>>1057088Enjoy the "SG Revamp" being on the backburner for even more months, they're probably fully focusing on the gameplay changes and the new story game mode.
Dead gameDead series
Whose everyone focusing their prize bags on? Im going for Rutee since i have most of her MAs, but im not putting anything extra in if i don't get her SG to 3 in time.
>>1057829For me it's Woodrow, because he's the sexiest of the three
>>1057829evenly because it's the most efficient usage.if i had to pick i'd go rutee though since she was my main in dc
>>1057829Sadly Judas is the only one who I have build and the rest have nothing lmao
>>1058422>That hair with that outfitOh mama. One of the very few moments where I’d be pulling with my dick. If I wasn’t flat broke.
>>1058422her vacuum-sealed boobs look awful and ruin an otherwise good alt outfit
fuck off smelly fujoshit
This event lasts pretty damn short. (It ends on November 9th)Datamine suggests that the second slayers collab will take place after them.
I rather Demon Slayer if anything.
Damn, it seems like they remembered the loli with a crush on Kunzite, though obviously she didn't get a sprite or model
Demon Slayer might still get a collab with Tales once the 3rd season hits around
>>1060607>Ufotable for KnY>Ufotable for nu-TalesI guess it fits too.
>>1059921disgusting flop creature. Also looks like I did in fact, hit a nerve kek.
>>1060676Please don't be mean to Kunzite, he's trying his best...
>>1060676>Hating on InesGayer than Sorey and Mikleo combined
>>1060716>>1060747Alisha is in the post itself; no need to act retarded.
>>1060983That is a cute outfit though.However, my priority #1 is Zaveid and I'm skipping the rest.
>>1060983I don't see an "Alisha"? There isn't a Tales character named that, are you confused?
>No Edna costume
Why the hell is he going at this whenever Alisha gets something?
>>1061218He's been obsessed with proving that she isn't popular for a long time even though Tales females aren't exactly known for having consistent popularity unlike the males.
>>1061218Some grudges run deep.
>>1061225That's also true. Since when has a female ever been more popular than the male characters in any Tales cast?
>>1061234Hearts come to mind. Shing is probably the least popular MC if Caius doesn't exist.
>>1061240I say it's Shing>Luca>Caius. Triverse casts are universally unpopular though.
>>1061242Luca gets fujobucks in a way that Shing doesn't, because Spada/Luca absolutely dwarfs the popularity of anything else coming out of any of those three games besides maybe "Kongwei", and Kongwei himself is sometimes shipped with Luca.
>tried spending 100 diamonds twice for the two days on that miscellaneous banner for suit Mithos>got 3 Arietta MAs, both burst artes, and her whole kit...Okay, I guess I will use her.
>>1061060True, she is a nobody afterall.>>1061225Even amongst female characters she’s not popular, she’s a meme whore. She was completely out of range in the last Talesfes poll. I will congratulate her on being the least unpopular character on this banner though.
>>1061218a fujoshit schizo who has her rent free on her head
>>1061364ook ook la, it’s “in her head” and again, keep your fujoshit boogeyman to yourself. The fact that you can’t believe I just simply hate Alisha outside advocating “”homoshit”” she was too useless to prevent happening to begin with is hilarious. I just hate the useless cunt and it’s easy to farm (you)s everytime I bring it up
You must live the saddest life ever ,you tranny
>>1061218It's not as bad in Japan where she has dedicated hate threads. Her antis are on another level compared to the haters of other characters (Although I heard Tear used to be the most hated)
>>1061576Most females party members get hate threads for simply getting in the way of the MC's yaoi ships or waifu wars. Tear is just unfortunate to be in the yaoi filled Abyss.
>>1061576>>1061583Abyss Females tend to get shit on the hardest in general while they all suck the dicks of the males
>>1061583>in the yaoi filled Abyss of Luke's assPoor Tear
>>1061545Why are you this mad about Presea's dead sister anon...
>>1061364I'm the resident fujo and I love Alisha. She's not important but she's good and cute. It's really fun in Rays how she's part of Edna's harem. We should all love her, a character doesn't have to be important or popular to be good.
>>1061568Sorry, I’m a retard. Meant for >>1061545
>>1061576>>1061583The difference between Abyss girls and Alisha getting hate threads is that the latter is actually justified by how shit she is - Abyss girls are nuanced and well rounded even if flawed. Tear is also actually the heroine and love interest so there’s a threat attached. Alisha is neither; she’s just so shit and yet so overblown that it lures hate
>>1061635Nta but I actually enjoy Alisha's interactions with Edna too. Unfortunately you can't really bring these two up in Tales threads, for different reasons.
We'll probably get collab news one way or another in a few days. Just hope the Tales side doesn't have anyone I care about
>>1063274Same, im fucking broke. They lured me in with that diamond Christmas step up....
>no Phantasia annual shilling le gasp
>>1064503Sleeper event, but they're hiding something, end of the trailer says there will be a follow up PV because December events aren't over just yet.
>>1064605>no Phantasia annual shillingSince when they do yearly Phantasia?
December Dev Letter>Rays Festival update between late December and January>The update for the Rays Festival will be in late December, and the first event will be sometime in January>Hint that the event will give focus to the game that starts with the 18th letter of the alphabet (R, Rebirth?), sorry for the long wait.>Spring 2023, the Recollection game mode will be addedRecollection mode:>Gameplay revamp, its alot so i'll skim over.>it will just be for this mode. Old gameplay stays for other content>Instead of having CC, you will have AG for performing artes>AG goes from 0% to 200% as you use artes in a timeframe>You are safe to go from 0 to 100, enough to use 4 artes at least, but continuing to use more artes past 100 is like overheating your character and very risky as your moves may not stagger or you are stunned if you were to get hit. You can spam all you want, AG will not stop you unlike CC, but not a smart idea.>Side stepping. Left, Right, Down, Up flicks to activate. Takes HP to use, but you recover that HP if you play well and dont get hit. If you get hit, you lose that HP threshold.>Similar to mainline game, you can perform an arte chain. Like using a base arte into an arcana arte, but for Rays, starting a chain with a 3* arte into a 4* into a 5*. There are boons for doing this.>Talk of revamping certain 3* artes and possibly new 3*>Using Mirage Artes are tied to a new gauge in the corner that increases as you do successful sidesteps. You can use it when the gauge hits level 1, but it gets better if you use it when the number increases, max level is 4.>There will be an Auto Chain that you can register with artes, essentially letting people use an extra 4 artes, giving you access to 8 total. Activated by tapping and holding your finger>Will have rewards>More info laterDecember events:>Innocence Ending and Anni event. Mathius debut, eMA for Ruca, oMA for Spada, xMA for Kongwai and QQ>Sorry that the PV is short. No hint, its a secret.
>>1065018Pretty comfy month so far, new mode sounds interesting.Now the secret collab just needs to be something new instead of the Slayers rerun.
>>1065085You know it's going to be the Slayers rerun
>>1065018'It's a secret' is the catchphrase of Xellos from Slayers.
>>1065085>>1065242I need a rerun of the .hack//GU event...
>>1065294Well it didn't literally say its a secret, just that the details are being kept secret
>>1065371It does literally say "It's a secret", it's even in quotes. It's obviously a direct reference.
>>1065018I realized that they haven't mentioned the Burst/Overlimit mechanic at all for this new gameplay. Would be weird if they left out the most recent gimmick that they're pushing with burst 5*s and eMAs. Lets wait and see i guess
>>1065437Bursts are the most pointless thing they ever created. Outside of Dhaos and maybe Lailah the gimmick is absolutely useless. You can tell how little they cared when they released Hisui's burst heal. They are categorised to have a higher cost in the grade shop, nothing more.
>>1065497Do they fuck?
Alright I’ve been logging in for a couple years and have finally started playing now that the story is finished. So, considering that I don’t have enough stamina to grind events atm, what should I prioritize getting from the event shop?Also, what is the best build for my waifu Mint?
>>1065580probably the gacha tickets, but if none of the characters here are anyone you like, i would take the time to play the entire story so that you have a stamina bar.
>>1065580If you're planning to use Zaveid, you kind of need that weapon since it immediately resets his position from in-air to ground because his physicals make him jump all over the place.
>>1065580I usually go for gacha tickets first, since they could potentially get an event MA and boost my farming speed a bunch.Then weapons, since they can boost it too if I don't already have that character geared up pretty well.Though this time I've just been beelining straight for that seasonal ticket, a bit over halfway there.Agreed with >>1065595 that doing some story and getting your AP bar up there is good, nice to be able to actually run the 80s without needing a refill each time.Though that'll also give you a bunch of extra AP from all the refills, so I like to work on that when there's an event I want to grind extra.There's also skits (menu -> scenario log) for more quick AP orbs.For Mint, if I remember right she wants the weapons from the Arche/Mint event from rerun tickets. So you can unlock that when you're gonna be grinding an event anyway.
>>1065580Event weapons are difficult to obtain, a single copy is required to use the arte. Alisha and Zaveid's event artes are great to have.Mint's event arte Nurse is great as well. Mint is a popular pick on challenge quests with her Time Stop MA along with her heal and support buffs.
>>1065797>Alisha event artes are great to haveWhich one? Splenwar or the Cruciform Spear?
Add me pls 571078534
>>1065845You could probably use my Zaveid to help grind for both event points, at least until you find someone else with better numbers.
>>1065849do you trade badges anon
>>1065497That one artist will be happy about this
>>1065742>Though this time I've just been beelining straight for that seasonal ticket, a bit over halfway there.Mine ended up being my 3rd seasonal Lailah...
