I'm thinking the exact same thing, Onion Knight is OK, and that's about it - not really worth resources imo, maybe a few tickets but don't really care about him. I'm going to go all out for P.Cecil, maybe a few hundred tickets for Arciela, and 120 tickets for Keiss, since they were meta Chaos era.

Why you are going for Gabranth? Is he a favorite or is he future meta? After Vincent, I'm never pulling again on new shit just because it looks cool, my resources are nearly completely wiped out because of that lame Vampire who hits like a wet noodle.

anyone else stuck with not being able to upgrade their new units because not enough character board points? this sucks.
>>
>>345118
Gabranth's LD is an AoE rebreak attack that gives the party 20% HP damage resist. It's nothing amazing, but it's what he should have been released with and rounds out his kit for people that liked him in the first place. Plus, having two ways to insta-break makes him useful against bosses with shields and/or BRV resistance.

>>345121
Yeah, it sucks that I got Krile's LD but haven't been able to max her LD board to go along with it. The worst part is that I DID save up going into this month since I knew LD Boards were coming, but getting two GL-first LDs with no points to go with them, as well as being luckier than I expected (I never dreamed I'd get all three of Caius, Guy, and Jack but I lucksacked all three in fewer tickets than their events gave back) ended up wiping me out. I'm certainly not gonna complain about getting every single LD in a month with this many of them, but that is the down side.

Man, at least Balthier had SOMETHING going on. Vincent was a dissapointment (thank god I got his LD from the free pull)

Granted, a ton of these 3/3s are from the past month or two where I've had a bunch of ingots and no reason to save them anymore, but I didn't think there'd end up being this much leeway. But I wish I could go back a year and tell the platelet version of me to quit being such a pussy about it.

I threw my remaining tickets at him and I don't regret it too much. If you got Paine's sphere you can give it to Vincent for -90% attack debuff which could potentially free up a tank spot

The stream didn't really go over anything we didn't already know about. There'll be some freebies related to a 9 Million Downloads celebration, and we get free pulls on Onion Knight, Gau, and Ceodore's banners (weirdly skipping over Arciela). Plus there'll be a new feature for co-op where you can let the game decide whether to host or join as a guest automatically depending on how busy the server is. The rest of it's all part of the normal timeline.

I'm going to pull for Ceodore and Pecil when they come out.

Sitting on like 1000 tickets, so I'll throw them at OK. Then I'll pity P.Cecil's LD and hopefully get his Burst. I might go for Keiss depending on how my resources are looking after that. Y'shtola is mandatory the next month and I've got 50 BT tokens prepped to buy her Burst.
>>
>>345638
I hope whatever global LD that comes next is nowhere near as medicore as Vincents...
>>
>>345856
Yeah, Vincent and Balthier were bad choices simply because it'd been so long since either had reworks. There are other characters without LD's who would have been better. Laguna, Thancred and Relm just recently got reworks so picking one of them for the LD would have been fine. And you have characters like Sherlotta or Alisaie or Alphinaud who are older but whose base abilities are good enough that with an LD they'd be competitive or even meta depending on what the LD did. Just look at Vivi who had recently gotten reworked, got a great LD and people are using him for Lufenia clears right now.

But instead they went for Vincent and Balthier whose base kits are just bad. At least they reworked Balthier to be a support and gave him an amazing aura that'll be useful during the upcoming brave reduction era, so he'll be good for a few weeks anyway. But poor Vincent is just left out in the cold. Bosses will start dispelling debuffs pretty frequently and his base abilities are awkward to use since he needs to have multiple enemies on the field but doesn't have splash. I got his LD on the free draw and built him but he's just going to sit on the bench until we get his rework in GL, and that probably won't be until a year from now.
>>
>>344712
>March
I want OK's LD and Cater's EX if I'm lucky. Hopefully I'll luckshit his Burst. Already have Gau's LD. I might try tickets for Arciela but depending on how my tickets look after OK I may just skip. Going ham for Ceodore.

I desperately require Cecil's Burst, so I'm going in for his LD, and if I don't luckshit it off the following banners I'll use tokens for his Burst. Already have Camelnut's LD. Will try for Keiss's and Gabranth's LDs, though if I have to pick only one Gabranth for sure.

>April
I've got Emperor's LD already and I'm not fussed about his BT. Gonna go for Celes's LD and Aranea's for sure. If I can get Eald'narche's LD with a few tickets that's great, but I'll just wait for his Burst if I don't get lucky.

Going all-in for Y'shtola's Burst. I like the character, plus even if she's not crazy right now she's one of the first BT+ characters and becomes outstanding then.

>May
In a fair and just world, I'll have been able to get OK, Cecil and Y'shtola's Bursts without using the tokens. The only BT I'm actually missing currently is Kefka, so it seems possible to me. I'll use whatever I can spare for Terra's LD, and then go ham on Mog's banner to get his kit and Terra's Burst. This will probably be where I spend my tokens in an ideal situation.

I can live without literally all the LDs in the latter half of May, so this is where I'll start saving back up. I may try SOME tickets for Faris's LD just because I'm deeply in unquenchable dyke lust for her, but I've already got Garland's LD.

>June
Going in like a maniac for Golbez's Burst and Kadaj's kit. After that I'm saving for Tifa's LD, and if I luckshit Bartz Burst I'll go back for the LD.

>July
If I don't have Stan Darsh's LD already, I'll go for it and maybe nab his Burst. If I already have it, then I'll go on Iroha's banner instead and then save for the rest of the month because I do not FUCKING care about Layle. I'll throw tickets at Seifer LD though.[/spoiiler]
>>
>>344513
>>PULLAN
this month is so meh >>344712 I guess since I'm maxed on tickets I'll try to get LD's for Arciela Keiss Gabranth and maybe OK, I'm only putting effort into getting Cecil's LD and I'll token his burst so I can finally pick up all the tokens in my inventory chest, the end of the month is what I'm really looking forward to
after that I really don't care/already have about anyone until Butz Galuf then Tifa and Ashe and I might just be able to token Layle but probably wont since I'm going in with gems on Seifer/Kurasame

So, counting the japanese version, Class 0 rn is technically missing only Sice (aside from Tiz and Joker, but they really didn't do much in the original game so not sure if they can get included). I wonder if when done with that (plus someone like Cid Aulstyne for the villain) they'll finally start adding more Tactics characters (not to mention having them more involved with the plot).

Is this worth playing casually or is there massive powercreep and shit? Will I be fucked if I'm not pulling meta weapons, or can I just use the characters I like? I typically don't care for gachas but I'm nostalgic for FF and it seems to have actual gameplay for combat rather than autoshit
>>
>>347803
There's a fairly lengthy story campaign at this point as well as several character-focused mini-chapters that you can get through with just about anyone you want due to the state of the power creep. It's only COSMOS difficulty and above that you'll need good results from the gacha for, and only Lufenia, the difficulty two steps above that, that you'll need specific characters to beat. If you want to try it out, now's a good time. We've still got a few days of free pulls on a banner that features every character in the game.
>>
I started the game a few days ago and have literally no idea on what the essential things to do are. Are there dailies and stuff? So far i'm just doing story quests for gems, however there are a lot of tabs for quests and i'm sure if i'm supposed to be prioritizing something.

As of now i've built Lightning/Cloud/Ultimecia equipped with 35 to 90 CP weapons (honestly have no idea what BT and LD weapons are, why can't they keep it simple) I'm just assuming higher CP means better.

15 and 35 CP weapons upgrade a character's 2 skills, respectively.
70 CP weapons are EX - they grant an EX skill (skill on cooldown rather than tied to limited uses). When maxed out, you can use a ruin book to turn them into EX+ and gain some big boosts to the character in general.
90 CP weapons are LD (Limited). They unlock a new skill with limited uses, and fewer uses than the character's starting skills, but significantly more powerful; sometimes even moreso than the EX.
130 CP weapons are BT (Burst). They grant characters a Burst command where they get a period of a few free turns in which each skill has one use charged separate from the normal pool, ending in a massive finisher and powerful lingering effect.
Priority once weapons are all fully limit broken and leveled is BT > EX+ > LD > EX > 30 CP > 15 CP
CP is used for equipping passives from leveling, summon boards, training boards, maxed out weapons (abilities are permanently learned when a weapon is maxed, once it's maxed, if you have a better weapon for that character, feel free to sell the weaker maxed weapon for materials), and artifacts.
>>
>>347879
15CP weapons power up their first skill. 35CP weapons power up their second skill (the one you get for reaching crystal level 20). 75CP weapons are also called EXes and give the characters sort of a Limit Break that charges on its own. You can power these up to EX+es, which give them a ton of extra buffs. Unless the character has a BT, this is the best weapon to have them equipped with, and is where most of their strength comes from. LDs are currently still being added- they give characters a new, extremely powerful skill but they can only be used a few times. BTs, or Bursts, are also newly added but are only for the main protagonists and antagonists of a given game, i.e. Cloud and Sephiroth get BTs, but Barret and Tifa do not. They let you trigger several attacks in a row and have better stats than EX+ but don't give the same benefits.

Maxing out a weapon will turn the benefits it gives you into a passive ability that you can use no matter what weapon you have equipped, including the extra skills from an LD. Ideally, you'll want to max out all of a character's weapons and leave either the EX+ or the BT equipped for the stats.
>>
>>347879
There's a single daily, it's the Hunt mission. It'll be the button on the bottom right of the world map. You fight the giant cactuar and get two tokens that you can trade in at the shop. The hunt stacks up to 3 times so if you miss doing it for 2 days you'll be able to do it 3 times on the third day. It's kind of hard but not overly so.

For weapons once you MLB the weapon (it turns from gold to blue) then you get to permanently learn the weapon's bonuses as a skill you can equip, so you max out your 35 weapon, have your EX weapon equipped, and then you can equip your 35 weapon skill. It's like having both the EX and 35 weapon equipped. EX weapons are unique in that they have a second upgrade path, EX+ which turns them purple. Don't sell weapons until you've maxed them out (they turn blue and you get the skill). Don't sell EX+ weapons, they're better than 15/35/LD weapons, so the EX will be the one you want to keep equipped on a character, unless you get the character's Burst weapon. Burst weapons are the strongest weapons and give the character a skill they can use once per battle. They're cool but for the most part they're not mandatory in the way that 15/35/EX/LD weapons are.

Yeah. It's a pain in the ass to go through the whole process of filling out all your character sheets, but if you're bored it's kinda neat to finish. Plus once it's all done you can filter out characters by role and the like so you can plan out your teams without having to launch the game just to see what tanks you have built, or whatever.

Other than Delita, at the very least Mustadio and Cid. And for the villain side, Ultima, Wiegraf and Elmdore.

I do believe there is potential even while not counting characters like the twins. And let's be honest, the dev found the time to add Reno and Rude, they can bs their way with whatever they want.
>>
>>348172
They released Reno and Rude and Sephiroth and Cloud BT's to line up with the release of the FFVII remake. They're probably going to do something similar when the new FFXIV expansion comes out, since that seems to be the big thing they're hyping for release this year. So we'll get LDs for some of those characters, and they'll release the 14 villain rep. I don't know though that Tactics has anything in the works and they're down to only making 12 characters per year, so I have a feeling the chances of many more characters from Tactics is slim. We'll get Delita and then Beoulve as the villain rep, but past that I wouldn't count on anyone else from the game at least not in the next few years.
>>
>>348186
It would still be a step forward, Ramza and Agrias were released relatively early and had no update since outside of a couple of lines here or there, especially since by the end of Act 2 a lot of the heroes still don't have their memories back meaning most of Act 3 will probably be dedicated to that.
>>
>>348172
I do like kefka, anyway they have several main party characters missing still I doubt tactics ones will get in before them
in my mind I believe the dev just hasn't played tactics yet, he probably played T-0 first and decided to add them as they were fresh in his mind

I really was thinking that for Act 3 Chapter 4 in japan they would have released Amarant, seeing it instead dedicated to Vivi's LD was very disappointing. I hope that the slowdown was caused mostly by the pandemic and the rhythm can pic up again soon enough.
>>
>>348222
the slowdown is mainly to stretch the games lifespan
>>
>>348222
From what they said there's so many characters already in the game they wanted to take time to build them up rather than continue to introduce new characters at the expense of leaving old ones to languish. Apparently that was one of the biggest complaints JP players have; too many new characters while favorites have been stuck on the bench for a year or more. Without having new Lost Chapters they'll be introducing new events that will focus solely on releasing LD's for older characters at a much faster rate. So far JP players have generally been fairly favorable about that. But it does suck for players whose favorite characters still aren't in the game yet.

I mean, the power creep works in a way that characters become outdated almost the moment their themed event ends, so it's inevitable anyway (sidenote: i used to main Cait Sith and Gilgamesh and neither still have an LD or a BT even in the japanese version so it's gonna be a very long wait for me). I dunno, i think at least spicing up with an extra new character event other than the regular sometimes would not hurt, and i still believe what they did for Act 3 Chapter 4 was not cool (wonder how that will be handled for global).
If anything, this would be a good excuse to introduce minor characters (Minwu, Tellah, Gogo, Delita or even stuff like Benjamin, WoL or Tyro) rather than the remaining bombshells everyone is expecting (Rikku, Amarant, Red XIII, the XIV villain and so on).

Not plotwise, but like i mentioned, rather than tying the chapter to a new character like always they instead tied it first to Yuna's LD/BT and then to Vivi's LD for some reason. and i fear by the time we'll get there they'll not change much.

Ultima for the antagonist/second BT.
Delita, Gafgarion, Mustadio, and Wiegraf otherwise are definite inclusions.

I can see Hauyn making it in eventually, but despite being the only WoFF reps, Lann & Reynn have never been treated the same as other protagonists. Their EX isn't in the DE: Order shop, they weren't featured on the All-Star banner a few months back, and they had to wait to get their Enhancement Boards when every other protag had theirs unlocked from the start. So I don't know if they're gonna get a Burst, and therefore would need an antagonist Burst to complement them. It's all up in the air. And I don't see anyone else getting in.

What is BT+, how does it work, and how badly is it going to powercreep this game?
>>
>>349065
Ok, between RK, WoFF and this, why is there suddenly a resurgence for Shelke?
>>
I noticed I've got 23 bloom stones left, and there's only 33 characters I haven't bought bloom stones for. So it's seeming like in another couple of months I'll have bought bloom stones for every character in the game. Has JP added anything for players to use their extra bloomstones on or will we just keep accumulating them from events and chocoboards, even with nothing else to spend them on?
>>
>>349065
Cute 14yo armpit.

For BT+, basically think of it like EX+. You get ingots from events/books you can use to increase the power of a BT weapon. You need 3 ingots to max it out and each ingot gives a small bonus. Once you've MLB'd it when you use your BT skill you get 7 turns instead of five. Further you can use the BT finisher one time per battle (note that this doesn't give you the 7 turn lead up, it just gives you one use of the BT finisher). You can still only use one full Burst per fight, but the single use BT finishers don't count against that limit. For example, you could use Y'shtola's BT+ finisher skill and then activate Terra's BT to get Terra's full BT usage but with Y'shtola's BT aura in effect.

It's definitely powercreep, but at the same time they've been releasing really strong LD characters like Cid Reines, Aphmau and Quistis who have no trouble keeping up with BT+ characters. So for the time being BT+ is cool and you benefit from having a BT+ character on a team, but there hasn't been any content yet that's required them. So basically more or less exactly like how BT weapons are right now in GL.

On the downside though, going forward for BT characters, it feels like a lot of their power is going to be locked behind BT+. It's still early, but some of the BT+ characters have gotten reworks to their LD boards (Y'shtola) which helped her even if you didn't have her BT. But with Bartz, he didn't get a rework or boost to his LD board, he just got his BT+. And it's a HUGE boost to him and made him one of the best characters in the game. But if you don't have Bartz's BT, just his LD, then he's still just okay but not crazy strong. So while having a BT+ isn't going to be mandatory for content clearing (except maybe the new DE Transcendence? It's too early to say) if a character is a favorite of yours and you really want to use them for a long time and they have a BT, you'll definitely want the BT because it's going to have a huge impact on their capabilities.
>>
>>349406
So, if I'm getting this correct, BT+ gives characters the friend assist version of the BT in addition to an extended normal Burst, plus updating characters' boards? I was worried it was going to be something like "you need to pull dupe BTs" or something like that.
>>
>>349413
Yeah, that's about it, no need to pull dupes or anything like that. Just book your BT and then put in ingots and max it out, same as you do with an EX.
>>
>>349405
She's 19, but hasn't physically aged since she was 9.
>>
>>349467
Oh wow, she's perfect.
>>
>>349468
If that's not enough, the ending of Dirge of Cerberus hinted at a romance between her and Vincent, who's about 60 but hasn't physically aged since he was in his early 20's. Just marvelous. Pure ludokino.

Jesus christ i did not know i was not supposed to sell weapons. Thats gonna sting like hell.

Thanks for the tips. Last question, are characters being 2 or 3 stars set?
>>
>>349065
Never played Dog, looks sexy.
>>
>>349709
I didn't realize you could mark favorites. There's still some stuff I gotta poke around for.
>>
>>349709
I'm not as firmly in the "Don't EVER sell weapons you haven't maxed out!" camp as others. You've gotta get Power Stones from somewhere, and you can still safely look at some characters and think, "I'm never gonna use Palom anyway." Even if they do become good down the line, everyone prioritizes some characters over others.

And no, characters fluctuate in usefulness all the time. The gacha system is based on weapons, with all the characters being free. So they frequently get buffed whenever the hot new weapon that Square wants you to pull for comes out. And if you're a new player that hasn't seen it for yourself, it's hard to understand just how much of a buff characters can get sometimes. Take Paladin Cecil as an example. At the moment he's a fairly mediocre all-rounder, but in a couple weeks he's going to get an LD and BT and become the best unit in the game for a long time. The squeaky wheel tends to get the grease, and even total joke characters that no one uses can suddenly become hot shit. I remember Cater from Type-0 being the worst character in the game until she got her EX+ and suddenly became infamous for being to solo almost all the endgame content at the time overnight.

The downside to this is a rapid power creep that you need to stay on top of. Unlike some other mobile games, you really need to pull frequently and build a wide roster of characters to stay on top of the endgame, but the game is much more generous with its currency than most others as well. It's a different type of economy to get used to.
>>
At what point should I start trying DE:Pathos?
>>
>>349843
It has two EX-tier missions, two COSMOS-tier missions, and three CHAOS-tier missions, but it's worth pointing out that these were some of the earliest CHAOS missions added to the game and existed before we had summon boards and the majority of characters were stuck at level 60 with no EX+es. If you've got a decent number of 3/3'd characters with maxed-out summon boards, you should clobber it. The rewards for clearing it are nothing amazing, but it still serves its purpose as a warm-up for Entropy.
>>
>>349854
I've only got 8 characters at 3/3 so far, and another 8 at 0/3.
>>
>>349252
Very nice, I don't understand the last lufenia orb, what does it mean by player takes takes BRV damage reduced by buff? You only get a 10 count orb and I didn't see it go up once, even when I let them hit me/break my party.
>>
>>349883
It means you have to let them hit you while you have a buff up that reduces damage. It's trying to push Hope and his Protect/Shell buffs, but Rude, Gladiolus, Beatrix, Desch, Gabranth, Aphmau, and Selphie all work too. I don't know if BRV shields, like the ones Warrior of Light and Nine use, count as well.
>>
>>349252
Don't have a screen shot but:

>Team 1
Firion(BT), Krile, Eight

>Team 2
Kefka(BT), Vivi, Penelo

>Team 3
Kuja(BT), Hope, Balthier
>>
>>349883
You need to have a buff up from a character that lowers BRV damage given to you (Beatrix, Gabranth, Hope, for example) and allow them to hit you.
>>
>>349799
Yeah, i won't nearly get enough power stones to actually make a dent in the harder content if i won't sell some of my 15 cp stuff. I'm not trying to teambuild that much anyway for now since i'm just starting. I just need some strong bodies to throw at the content.

I still need to know about the characters. Some of them are 2 stars (up to crystal 70) and some are 3. Is that a set thing? I wanted to level my P.Cecil or leon but they are just two stars, so that makes me double think doing it, even though i have their EX.
>>
>>350065
Oh, that's what you meant. The level cap is in the process of being lifted from 70 to 80, but it's being done gradually (it was handled the same way going from 50 to 60, and 60 to 70). Two-star characters can only have their crystal and XP level raised to 70, whereas three-star characters can be raised to 80, letting them use Call abilities. Whenever a character is the main feature on a banner, they get their cap raised. For instance, Hope was bumped up since he was the main character on the Boss Rush 2 banner. And at the start of each month, a batch of six characters get their awakening. On March 1st, that'll be Onion Knight, Gau, Snow, Sazh, Cater, and Alisae. Paladin Cecil will actually get his level 80 on March 15th along with his LD and BT, so he's coming up soon. Leon won't be until later August, though.

But keep in mind that level 80 Awakenings are brand new. We only started getting them a few months ago, meaning level 70 characters will be good for everything but Lufenia missions.

Tell me about it, and why the hell didn't Waking Nightmare event (Vincent's Event) not have any ebp? They release a weak character and don't even give him a rework, LD board, or even the measly 5k ebp to upgrade him.
>>
>>350428
I'm just glad that aside from Onion Knight and Ceodore, I've already boarded all the characters releasing this month. So even if I get really lucky and get all the LDs again, I'll still turn a profit on Enhancement Points. But yeah, I've been behind for the past couple weeks because I haven't been able to finish the boards for the characters I've been pulling.

I use FFOOTIP dot com to get a good idea who gets an LD later on and is worth investing in, I think the tonberry troupe website does rankings on roles too I forget.

It's his BTLD release and the fight panders hard to this mechanics.
This in itself is not unusual but the fight is really fucking hard on top of that.
>>
>>352173
They block batteries and you can't imperil them, with them swapping between physical and magic resistances during the fight. So you're pretty much forced to bring characters that can party enchant ice or earth, which is rare.

PULLAN: The daily anniversary multis left me with a bad taste in my mouth and the amount of 5* I got vs tickets spent in the last month was disproportionately-shit. So I don't know.

WAIFUAN: No idea. I don't believe in my luck and I'm not exactly good at saving up so it's not like I have 75k times the number of LDs I want on me right this moment.

Is OK usable without his LD? Doesn't seem like it has any unique mechanic. I pulled his BT but I don't feel like wasting more than tickets when I have every single weapon on both banners.
>>
>>353081
If you mean games like Bravely Default, I Am Setsuna, or Live a Live, then we've got a long way before they have to start drawing from those wells. Maybe if the game is still active two years from now.

>>353106
Not really. He's one of those characters who didn't get a rework, but his LD gives him some ludicrous stat buffs to compensate. So without it, he'll be hitting about as hard as the mid-CHAOS character that he otherwise is. His LD pulls the whole party up next in the turn order and gives them a free skill use, so there is some utility in it, but for the most part it's just a stat stick that complements his regular "death by a thousand cuts" style.
>>
>>353081
Aside from what >>353102 i can see characters like WoL or Tyro to show up, but i don't think it's a certainty.
>>
>>353106

He gives free skill uses to others, even if they aren't designed with it in mind. AAs that restore both skills can double and store that use outside of Boss Rush. ie Quistis. It also helps him maintain his enchant.

Cecil may be better but a Burst in hand is a Burst.

Any team suggestions for this Lufenia? I tried with OK, Gau and Balthier, but Gau couldn't keep up with the healing, especially once the bosses dropped below 50% and started going all out with their AoEs.

>>
>>353656
I'm still stuck. I'll try a bit more tonight since I'm off, but if I can't clear it I might pass and come back and try again later, maybe with Paladin Cecil or Squall or Sephiroth or something.
>>
>>353656
This is the first Lufenia I'm still putting off doing. I pulled Onion Knight's LD, but don't have enough Enhancement Points for him. Plus, I decided to use gems on Ceodore, so I still have a chance to get Onion's burst. With none of the rewards being timed, it doesn't make sense for me to rush this Lufenia without building myself up as much as I can, even if I do have Gau, Ramza, and several other characters that could theoretically get through it.

Anyone going for Arciela? My impression is that she's a great character if you're still new to the game and still have content to clear out, particularly Dimension's End Entropy. But if you're already clearing Lufenias then she's an easy skip, since she isn't even the best character to bring to her own event, let alone others. It's a shame too, considering she was one of the meta-defining units at the time of her original event, but Fast Cast isn't very useful anymore, and the rest of her kit is only as good as the devs allow it to be. Too many Lufenia bosses resist HP Silence and rely on auras instead of dispellable buffs for Arciela to get a foot in.

Gonna skip her. She's cool and I liked her when she first came out, and I probably would have gone all in if we didn't have the foresight to know that she's just going to be mediocre. Especially with the gauntlet of Paladin Cecil, Keiss, Gabranth and Celes starting in about a week.

>trying for krile ld

I can't commit too much on this banner, I still got OK and Pecil to pull.
>>
>>355204
I'd like her since I don't have Kefka, but I do have Beatrix, Reno, and Edward. I feel like Reno was underrated, in terms of how much use I'm getting out of him.

Got Gabranth's EX from the omni banner so I feel like I should pull for him, then there's Cecil and Celes. I'm strongly tempted to wait on Keiss until Layle's BTLD.
>>
>>355504
Yeah, I'm not sure what to do about Keiss. I'd really like to get him now to run Cloud/Keiss/Krile. But I am planning to go all in on Layle so it would make the most sense to hold off. But the problem is though right at the end of Layle's banners we get Sephiroth's rework, and then we get slammed with Cloud of Darkness, Tidus, Setzer and Vaan's rework. Honestly I probably won't be using Layle or Keiss for more than a month, at most, after Layle's banner. So I feel like if I want to actually use Keiss it would be better to pull for him now even if waiting would technically be the more optimal choice.

>>355518
it's a turn based rpg, so it's fun if you like them, it's mainly for the fans of the Final Fantasy games
>>
>>355518
It's basically a turn based game that doesn't really have a stamina system and the game gives tons of currency so it's really easy to save up for your favorites. Most of the story revolves fairly heavily around interactions between Final Fantasy games, though, so if you're not somewhat familiar with the franchise you might not enjoy the game too much.

I got Arciela's EX on my free single, which I already had. And then I got her LD on the first fucking ticket.
I don't understand this game, sometimes I waste all my F2P resources just to get 1 single weapon, and then sometimes shit like this happens.
>>
>>355518
If you're into turn-based RPGs and don't care too much about competitiveness, this is one of the most generous gachas you'll find (real exceptions being alternate costumes locked behind a 40 bucks paywall). If you're attached to FF in any capacity it's even better since the fanservice is extremely high.

I've been wasteful with my points, since I like building themed teams to clear out low-level content like the non-boss nodes in story chapters, and I CB'd all of them. But normally I don't have budgeting issues. It's just that February threw three characters at us without any Enhancement Points in their events, so that plus the introduction of LD Boards set a lot of people back, me included. Fortunately, it's only a temporary problem. My wastefulness meant that I have almost every character getting an LD in the next few months boarded already. I'm walking away from Arciela's LC with 5,000 points in my pocket for Ceodore if I get him, even after pulling Arciela's LD and maxing her LD board.

Aight. I haven’t played this game in a while. Are any of the current banners worth rolling on or should I save for somebody in particular?
>>
>>357851
Paladin Cecil gets his LD and Burst next week, and he's one of those meta-defining, "You're fucking stupid if you don't pull for him" characters. As for current banners, Gau is probably the best- he's a counter-based character that counters whenever any of your units take a hit, and his LD counter heals and batteries your party as well as damaging the enemy. Hope is a good defensive support, and Arciela can cheese pretty much everything below the Lufenia difficulty. But I'll reiterate that Paladin Cecil should be your first priority.
>>
>>357869
Good to know. I’ll save up for Cecil then.
>>
>>355204
I spent 91 tickets and only got 2 5*. Then I got her LD in a 4/11 on the first multi. She's been core af for me since I first got her and it's good to see I'll keep using her.

I don't even do Cosmos, let along Chaos, so I'm just playing for the story and rolling for characters I like.
>>
>>358116
dude cosmos is retardly easy if you have max crystal lvl and having a LD , chaos is where the bullshit starts , but yeah its better if you play at your pace if you will not try to do the serious bs endgame
>>
>>355204
I budgeted a hundred tickets for her, and ended up getting her in around 70, and I'm glad I did end up getting her. It's completely understandable why people would say she's an easy skip considering what's on the horizon, but she is better than people say, and better than I was expecting. She ended up making Onion Knight's Lufenia a total cakewalk, something I'd been avoiding doing until Ceodore's banner. Now that Onion Knight's Burst isn't as attractive to me, Ceodore's budget went down significantly. I was gonna use gems on him, but now I'm just gonna do the free pull and 50 to 100 tickets. Getting Arciela may have ended up saving me a bunch of resources in the long run.
>>
Just went 523 tickets deep for Arciela and didn't get her LD. I'm gonna just gonna call it quits there. Shame, it looks like she has some really great Calls.

Alisaie and Yda make me consider trying FF14. Also, are either of them getting an LD?

No 14 LDs other than Y'sh in JP yet but season 3 also does thematic story chapters like season 2 so at some point there'll probably be a big 14 month.

>>361497
He's alright but Paladin Cecil is the next character out in a few days and he's going to be the strongest character in the game for several months. He'll be as close to a "must pull" as you'll ever see in this game. So make sure you have enough resources for him before you consider throwing anything at his dumb son.

if you have penelo LD or balthier LD don't bother with him go for P cecil

>>361497
He's pretty good, but he gets cucked hard by his dad. They actually make a fantastic team together since Ceodore can do a lot more damage than Cecil but Cecil's overhealing means you don't have to worry about Ceodore's skills getting downgraded. He's not worth breaking the bank over though, since Squall's rework shouldn't be too far from now and he single-handedly makes most other damage-dealers obsolete, and Pecil being as good as he is means a lot of bosses are gonna absorb Holy in the future just to lock him out, with Ceodore getting fucked over in the process. If you can get him on a budget, build him up. But don't go deep on him with Pecil, Keiss, Gabranth, and Celes just over the horizon.

How Arciela's disable move doesn't work on co-op, while it works fine in solo cosmos in the centipede event? It's the same difficulty right?
>>
>>361792
It should work, I just checked and they're not immune to it or anything. Maybe someone else just used a bunch of debuffs and pushed Arciela's off? Her HP silence isn't framed so if someone puts up a bunch of framed debuffs, hers will fall off.
>>
>>361796
But I did her skill rotation properly. Still, those centipedes used their hp attack on us. While on solo, it was not an issue.
>>
>>361800
If someone else didn't knock her buffs off and the HP Silence was still up on them, then I have no idea.
>>
>>361801
I was with Jack and Sephiroth with Ulti and Ramza as their support. I don't know if they can remove my HP silence. That said, I will try it again if it was just all me, or there's something wrong in the co-op right now.
>>
>>361709
I'm mostly caring about Keiss and a bit about Gabranth, but i'm gonna skip the others since i want to conserve as much as i can for Y'Shtola's LD/BT next month.

Is it just me or part 2 of A3C1 was kinda weak narrative-wise?
Out of nowhere the entire cast of IV regains all their memories all at the same time to justify Ceodore's presence, they don't aknowledge Cid or Tellah, and Cecil has this retarded moment where he thinks he can seal alone the darkness of CoD and Xande despite the previous chapters proving to him that being alone is a terrible idea.

Don't tell me the other chapter of Act 3 are on this writing level.
>>
>>362240
I thought it was alright. The chapter was just Cecil being Cecil. When your guilt complex is the main thing distinguishing you from other series protagonists in a crossover, you're gonna do some stupid shit to make yourself a martyr sometimes. And that missing memories stuff should have been resolved before the end of Act 2. It's overly convenient that everyone just gets their memories back for no reason, but I'm just glad they're not still stretching it out over a year later. The FFIX cast got their memories back during the very beginning of the COSMOS era, for fuck sake.

That's why i keep telling we need more FFT characters as soon as possible, because i have no idea how are they gonna resolve the whole missing memory bit in a decent way with just Ramza and Agrias.
>>
>>362428
Although really, if it is just the two of them then getting their memories back wouldn't change anything anyway. A post-FFT Delita could be interesting in the same way Vayne has been, knowing that he lost everything that mattered to him in his mad dash to fulfill his ambitions and having a chance to change it. But until that happens, Ramza and Agrias don't have much to add.

Had to use all my 50k gems just for the LD, guess I'll switch banners since I'm missing Kam'lanaut too.
Is the BT worth it? I've been hoarding BT tokens for a while, I was thinking using them for Lightning BT, but with that renewed start dash banner coming maybe I should wait.
Will Cecil BT still be available when the next summon board starts?
>>
>>367133
I do really like Pecil's Burst for its effects, but Lightning or Squall are the better options. Cecil is mostly a support unit, so you won't be doing a ton of damage within his Burst period, and his LD lasts long enough that you don't really NEED another use of it. Lightning really appreciates having that extra LD use, and Squall will just be a powerhouse shitting out tons of damage after his rework. It's up to you which you prefer.

And yes, Gabranth's banner with Cecil's BT should still be up for a week or so when Divine Ramuh hits. Emperor's BT will also be available by that point, but if I'm being honest I'm just pulling for Celes and ignoring him. I don't even have his LD.

I've been putting off the Arciela's LC Lufenia. How hard is it?
>>
>>367964
I found it to be a lot harder than Onion Knight's. You really need to learn the enemy attack patterns inside and out to know when it's safe to HP Silence them and when you can get away with leaving their buffs up and when you should dispel to stretch the orb out as much as you can. And the only way to do it is to take some practice runs. If you have Balthier, he really comes in handy here. I don't know how much Pecil or Ceodore would help.
>>
April is Aranea, May is Mog, June is Kadaj, July is Iroha, August is Queen, September is Cid Raines, and October is Shelke. So that's eight months worth of thinking and planning you can do.
>>
>>367964
It's dumb. The enemies can chose not to buff and deny you orb fulfillment conditions. Most of your resets will be due to that if you are doing it legitimately instead of running a full launch/delay team to outrun the orb.

Take it easy with HP disables if you bring it to the fight since it makes enemies buff even less. Use only to avoid the dispel attack from the starving stance. Characters that remove one buff at a time instead of all are the best or this.

>>370586

>>
I just got my 50th burst token. Should I buy Lightning's burst or should I wait for Y'shtola's? I already have Squall's.
>>
>>370684
The Start Dash banner will be refreshed soon, and it'll have Cloud, Lightning, and Squall's Bursts all available. So if you're missing anything from it, you may want to wait to take a crack at that banner before spending your G Tokens. But Lightning's Burst is probably the most valuable one you can get at the moment. Y'shtola isn't going to be that great until her Burst+ comes out in eight months or so, but if she's a favorite I'm not going to try to dissuade you from investing in her considering I'm this >>367576 dumbass.
>>
>>370684
You've got 3 months before your tokens start to vanish from your inbox. Lightning will be more useful for the immediate future since Y'shtola was pretty mediocre on release. She gets a huge boost with her BT+ and a solid rework to her LD, so she'll be a long term investment, with the emphasis on long - it'll probably be October before GL gets her BT+ (so about 7 months from now).


For Lightning, we're probably getting at least one free draw on the new Start Dash banner, so it's possible you could end up pulling Lightning's BT (normally you have a 3% chance to get a BT on the 11th draw, but on the Start Dash banner the chance of getting a BT on the 11th draw is increased to 9%). At least I would wait until then and see what happens before you pop your BT tokens. You'd feel silly if you spent 50 to get Lightning's BT, then get it on a free draw, sell the dupe for 5 and end up basically having wasted 45 BT tokens.
>>
>>370586
I did Entropy mostly by procrastinating and waiting for solo units and summon boards to make older units more viable but that's not an option in Transcendence. Either you do it on launch or you sit on it forever since it doesn't get easier with time.
That being said I'll try to keep up with it, but it'll probably fuck all my resources.

Apart from Pecil losing all his buffs at some point in the fight, this lufenia wasn't too bad...
>>
>>370586

>>
>>370769
Not that guy, but I'm also waiting on the start dash before deciding on who to use my tokens. I'm missing Cloud and Lightning, but I really want P Cecil. The thing is, until his BT goes away, I'll be drawing on the banners, so it would be really stupid to use tokens on him and then pull the BT on some banner.

If you use if after Sword and Sorcery, you should get more out of it that you'd expect. And if you have Ceodore or Pecil you'll be getting better damage buffs than you would with Gau. But if worse comes to worst, the rewards from Onion's Lufenia are all permanent, so you can come back with Celes' LD if you really want to dumpster it.

>>
>>372498
I haven't watched videos of him in JP or anything, so my impressions are just a first glance, reading Dissidiadb sort of thing. But his kit as a whole doesn't seem all that amazing. But people have been hyping him up because between his Skill 2 and LD, he has two ways on inflicting instant/rebreak on demand, which makes him valuable for some tricky Lufenias, particularly Dimension's End Transcendence. I could be wrong, but it definitely seems like veterans will get a lot more out of him than relative newcomers who are still catching up. He seems to get rerun a lot too, which will help if you're on the fence.

The best part is that we get it right before Divine Ramuh. I really wasn't looking forward to the grind on this one since I don't have Emperor's LD (and don't really want it) and none of the other featured characters are dedicated damage dealers. Divine Diabolos was a slog even with Ramza, Machina, and Yda on hand, so I hated the thought of doing it with Celes, an EX-only Emperor, and Yuffie. But with Auto+ I can just let it take care of itself.

If the "shot clock" times out, the game will automatically make the player use whatever skill Auto+ would have picked, so EX->LD->S2->S1.

is this normal, or did something fuck up?
>>
>>380820
Completely normal, the amount of resources available to new players is crazy high, especially now that we have moved on to harder difficulty in the Lufenia era. With just minor grinding you can be caught up with a day 1 players and start participating in Lufenia if you were really motivated. Personally, I wouldn't worry about Lufenia, and instead play though the campaign on the harder difficulty, hoard resources, and then keep rolling on the starter banner for either Cloud, Lightning, or Squal's LD/Burst. Just one of those sets will guarantee you clear most past/future chaos difficulty content with little worry, which will allow you to farm even more resources. I would focus on the events for the gems/tickets and any crystals you need for upgrades, and then leave, since it's a boring slog. Once campaign content is done, move on to Lost Chapters, then the dimensions end stuff for even more resources.
>>

You joined right at the tail end of a raid mission, which gives out rewards to everyone when players clear the co-op enough times to reach certain milestones. There's usually one of those every month or two. Opera Omnia is one of the most generous gacha I'm aware of in terms of all the free shit it gives you, but it's balanced out by having a really fast power creep, so if you want to keep up with endgame content you've gotta pull and build characters constantly. But as a new player, just enjoy all the free shit and try to pull your favorites. There are three banners active at the moment that, put together feature EX weapons and below for every character in the game, split up. You get a free multidraw one one of your choosing every day, so don't forget to at least log in.

Stupid question: If I max a characters burst, is it safe to then sell their maxed out EX?
>>
>>380892
Yes.
>>
Is there any reason to hang onto a burst weapon if I have a copy of it, or am I safe to just sell it?
>>
>>380927
You can sell it, but be aware that 50 is the cap, and any you get after that goes into your gift box with a 90-day expiration date. So it's best to hold on to your spare Bursts until the one you want is available.
>>
>>380940
Pretty much this.

Just keep the tokens from dupes, freebie mog pass and transcendence rewards right where they are until you need them.

That was the ideal situation since I wasn't gonna pull for him and was worried what would happen if I got his BT pulling for Celes and Aerith, but I never thought it could actually happen. Got Celes in about 120 tickets, too.

I'm in the same boat. I haven't pulled a BT since Ramza. Not broken up about it since LDs are much more valuable, and I've still been able to save up enough gems and BT tokens for the ones I REALLY want.

Dumb question, but if I wanted to cancel my Crucible 2 team to swap Krile out for someone else (I want to use Krile on DE: Transcendence 2) would it also cancel my last tier team (Cloud/Keiss/P.Cecil), even if I kept Cloud and Keiss in the final Crucible 2 team?

>>
>>385432
They're honestly fine there. The annoying thing about Transcendence is that each tier is annoyingly overtuned in favor of characters that released around the same time, even more so than Entropy was. From what I hear, Terra, Golbez, and Faris are the ones you want for Transcendence 2.
>>
>>384838
For a long time i wanted to stick with a team made with Y'Shtola, Cait Sith and Gilgamesh. Very soon i realized i had no chance to progress if i stuck to that.
>>
April's Fools blessed me with an Aerith LD on the free multi. I kind of wish the game had more challenges that required using every single character, I've been using books and building characters that I'll honestly probably never use just because I got the resources.
We could even have some unlockables that aren't gameplay related, like a museum for art, music and such.
>>
>>386034
I mean there's always Dimension's End. You'll want like 60 characters built for the first one and Transcendence uses 6 characters for each stage. I think they're up to 5 stages now, so that's 30 characters.
>>
>>386034
It's really disappointing that Aerith didn't get an event. I built her and then I was like...now what?

>>386067
>He doesn't have the purple plate yet
btw with the powercreep you can do a lot of DE stages with 1 or 2 characters so you don't need 60 at all.

How many lufenia tokens should I be stockpiling for high guard armor +s
or do I even need those for them
>>
>>386343
Yeah you need 20 tokens for one ingot and you need 3 ingots to MLB a high armor.
Try to save where you can. Support and Encouragement (until the buff) are easy skips. Attack is only good if the character can reach the cap, and the debuff is usually always good. Tactics is fine, you can pick it if you use the character a lot but otherwise you can skip.
>>

wew, this was about as awful as I thought it would be, and I went in as prepared as it's possible.
Can only imagine what's like to go underprepared. I prioritized launch calls on my non-launch team members to be as safe as possible for the laughing thresholds so I was strapped for heals to cover the large recast damage since Cecil and Gabranth ran out of skills fast.
Now I'm wondering if I should have brought Arciela call somewhere. Her LD is actually a trap in wave 1 since you still need to break to dispel their BRV immunity but the regular call could probably reduce some of that recast damage in wave 2.

>>
>>387966
If you have LDs for anyone, particularly Edward, then they're generally worth a purple.

Relm, and to lesser extents Alisaie (If you have Sazh or Hope), or Auron are strong EX+ characters that can/could keep up in LD content. Leon has a unique gimmick used in meme clears.

Rem and Alphinaud are good challenge quest/DE supports who don't necessarily need 3/3.

Everyone else is skip unless you need DE/Abyss fodder or want to honor a favorite. Those ingots can disappear fast and there are many good characters on the horizon.
>>
>>388006
but the amount of characters they make will go low dude
>>
>>387966
If you got to the point where ingots are not a problem and you don't need anyone specifically might as well just keep ingoting synergy characters to do CQs.
But to use right now I dunno. Edward is good and Ciaran/Eight are decent-ish if you have their LD. Maria, Alphinauld and Relm are good for EX-only characters.
>>
>>387966
First question - have you cleared DE yet? If you haven't then there are characters like Relm, Leon, Alphinaud, Cyan and Shadow will be really useful.

2 - do you have LDs for any of the LD characters (Jack/Edward)? If so, then absolutely.

3 - if you already cleared DE and you don't have LD's for Jack or Edward, then the only reason to MLB someone is because you'd like to get their sphere. If so, Alphinaud, Ciaran, Prishe, Papalymo, Irvine, and Noel all have amazing spheres (especially Prishe and Noel).
>>
not the same anon but I only have jack's LD no EX xD
>>
>>388084
You can always save up EX tokens and eventually buy his EX. You can also wait until August when he comes back with Leon's LD and pick up his EX then.
>>
>>387966
My strategy has just been to purple characters as they show up on banners. We only get one new character a month now, as opposed to the CHAOS era when we'd get two new EX+es every three to five fucking days, so even if I never end up using those characters, I'd rather spend the ingots rather than let them sit.

It’s the buffs he gives himself on the recast that kill you, make sure you either have Aerith’s debuff on him that prevents him from buffing himself or put up at least 5 framed debuffs so he isn’t able to fully buff
>>
What party members work well with Emperor?
>>
>>390707
Either Celes or Paladin Cecil for imperil/enchant (theoretically Pecil would be better, but almost every Lufenia this month absorbs Holy), with Cloud or Lightning to delay the enemy and deal damage. The same principles apply to other characters in the imperil/enchant and delay/damage roles, but those are the best specific examples at the moment.
>>
>>390714
Celes is better than Krile for imperil/enchant for Emp? Is her lock just that relevant, or am I missing something else?
>>
>>390732
Well tanks are always useful when you can't delay. Don't use Celes with lightning since with Celes you want the bosses to take turns so she does her end turn damage.
Krile is good with Lightning since the enchant boosts the damage further.
I just feel like I couldn't use lightning a lot lately.
>>
>>385262
Thanks just quit.
>>
Hoping I get some luck on the free pull because I can't justify spending tickets on Ara.
If I get it I'll use her on Transcendence 2 left node but I can't really think of anywhere else.
>>
>>391864
Being useful in a DET means she's worth pulling for don't you think?
>>
>>391875
Kind of, really depends. If you are using them on Reckoning then definitely, if it's just for a Crucible then depends on how hard/restrictive that stage is. In Aranea's case while she's good and works for the orb on the left crucible of 2 she's not invaluable (Garland is able to fucking solo it and it's the only solo I ever saw on Transcendence https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GN-RiJtAj5s) and she wouldn't be the best pick on the Reckoning stage since she burns out fast now that her HP+ isn't the best move in the game and the Reckoning stage itself is a 3 wave, 100+ turns endurance run.

I noticed this since I'm compiling a bunch of youtube clears to help choose my parties beforehand. When I'm done I'm gonna post here.
>>
>>391864
Yeah. I've got some extra tickets after Ramuh so I'll drop 100-200 or so. I enjoyed the crap out her during the Chaos era and her rebreak mechanic looks fun, but I can't really bring myself to spend more than that when there are so many other characters coming out soon that I want a little more.
>>
Should i return to this game now? Is co-op still shit?

It's a coin toss. Either you get people who know what to do or the jackass that spams his BT first turn.

Damn, never been so broke before, any day one players got advice on how do you make do when you can't pull for anything for a few months? Should I just horde resources and forget the challenges, or is it best to just yolo with whatever event tickets gems I get and hope for the best?

best to save and prioritize your pulls

This one's a bit outdated by now, but Golbez and Hope are the main attractions, with Shadow, Laguna, Vivi, and Thancred on there too. It's looking to be a much easier grind, especially for GL since we have Vivi's LD (which I'm not sure if they'll rerun). Even with Auto+, farming Ramuhwith a dude with the longest animations in the game, a tank, and a bunch of outdated supports was a real chore.

Serah is reworked and dropping in an hour by the way.

Still needs to be seen how much less of a meme she is with the rework but apparently she gets HP dmg up at 6+ total debuffs on enemy party and HP dmg up is always good.
>>
Got Y'shtola BT on the free draw and decided to drop 150 tickets on Serah in light of her rework. Got her LD in 140 tickets, so tonight was a pretty good night.
>>
>>401022
You don't need a dozen supports with hp damage up. Her skills are still too underwhelming.
Paladin Cecil is the best if holy is unresisted since he can act as a healer and enchants/imperils
Balthier is the second best with his niche as a party cleanser and enemy buff dispeller, but you'll still need a tank or a healer in most cases.
Serah is just kinda here, poison is fine I guess? Who cares.
>>
>>401231
I'd say Serah is generally better than Balthier since cleansing isn't typically necessary and Serah brings really solid debuffs and party battery.
>>
>>401250
Yeah, on an even playing field, Serah is just a better Balthier now. But Balthier still has the benefit of having his auras as an overhead that the enemy can't do anything to get rid of, whereas Serah's aura comes from her LD, which she can only use three times. You really gotta be careful not to bring her against enemies that dispel buffs, because she's back to being worthless if hers fall off.
>>
so JP is down to 5 character awakenings to finish the lvl 80 ones, 36 LD's missing and about 4 months of BURST's although they can still do like a year of BURST+
so... is it time to speculate whats next, I'm going to say EX++, lvl90 EX calls and even maybe some big non-protagonist characters might get a burst
>>
EX++ is definitely coming, they've even said as much. But I'm not sure how they'll handle it. If it's tied to character boards or realization materials, then most people will just be hoarding their gems and not pulling on anything since EXes are so common and get rerun so frequently. Hell, I actually have every EX in the game, so I could become a gem millionaire by the time it's over. But if it's a new weapon type, then we'll have to wait a while for more LDs to come out. There's always some overlap with a few characters getting last season's fashion late, but there's still too many LDs missing for that.
>>
They're going to have to go for a new weapon tier or maybe a new armor tier that's tied to the gacha. If people aren't pulling for stuff then people aren't spending money (outside of the monthly pass/costumes).

How about increasing again the new characters ratio to compensate? I had been told the slowdown was to make sure with these new mechanics the low-tier characters could catch up to the big boys, and we're pretty much close to it, or at the very least the gap has shortened considerably.
On the other hand, we only got a handful of new characters, a couple of wich i argue really unnecessary while both fan favourites and chapters that desperately need new people for a long time (Tactics on top of all) have to suffer in silence. XIV doesn't even have a villain yet to boot, nor Type-0 despite the Class 0 being nearly all there.
I can still wait, but realistically the game won't last forever, i'm kinda missing the old rhythm of updates.
>>
>>403082
they probably have to give us Delita and XIV villain at least in a few months so they can give them their bursts right
but I don't think they are changing at all the phase of character releases
I just want less coop grind

For the upcoming Boss Rush who would be better to have, Wakka or Trey? I lucked into Serah's LD and was planning to pass on Y'shtola until her BT+. But I'd like to get either Wakka or Trey so I'll be able to use Sherlotta, Serah and then either Wakka or Trey as the synergy characters for the 3 teams.
>>
>>403250
I'd say Trey, if only because I don't really appreciate the random aspect of Wakka's mechanics. Trey and Wakkka share a strange competition from now on since not only do they fight for the same spot on BR3 but also on DEt 4 right crucible with it's tight ranged damage orb.

Trey on the other side is an underrated character that is always screwed by bad release timing. His mechanic that allows any attack from your team to be an instabreak should make him better for gravity content than gravity characters but every time there's a big enemy BRV gain fight like Agrias officiants, Ultimecia mermaids, Ciaran bears or those fucking turtles he is either not available or outdated.
>>
>>403250
Trey works very well for the first wave, and Wakka works really well for the last wave. Trey is a much better character than Wakka overall, but if all you care about is having a balanced party for the boss rush, then consider the alternatives available for each of the waves and make your decision that way.

Serah, Gladio, Emperor, Firion, Sherlotta, and Keiss all work well for the first wave. You've got a lot of options available even if you don't have Trey.

The last wave is a bit trickier, since You have to inflict at least two debuffs on the enemy in one action to increase the orb, but if you inflict four or more on them, then they immediately cleanse them and activate some nasty auras. Celes is your best alternative here, and in fact a better choice overall if you don't mind missing the synergy bonus.
>>
>>403295
If you do have Celes and also Squall you can try this meme run for the last wave: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Q9Pg9dXcG0

Setzer even without LD and hitting for 1 during enemy auras still counters the snake mechanics so cleanly it works.

Anyone else dissapointed with some current challenge events if you have all characters built up? I just beat Y'shtola CQ with Auto+ and theres barely any challenge anymore.

>>404566
As ore and more characters are getting LDs, the challenge of them gets lower and lower. No CHAOS mission is going to be difficult with three characters with synergy, LDs, and full boards.
>>
>>404566
The only hard part of challenge quests is to have the characters built, that's it.
Well except that one time where the character selection was retarded and you could barely make a functioning team.
It's not even worth building some for 1/50th of a burst weapon.

Now that's a suffering from success if I ever seen one, especially considering how bad CQs use to be.

Just use the trashiest, 0/3 or no EX synergy characters you have lmao.

Funny you say that because I was literally just thinking how fucking hard the Trey CQ is gonna be if it's anything like the original Chaos fights.
People that are skipping this BT cycle in favor of Terra/Garland next month are probably gonna have a bad time.
