In which we bid farewell to our favorite little big clown girl after two long years of pranks and honking, goodbye Igohmal, thanks for the lollipops.
On other news, the second anniversary GL celebrations go on and the new banners are fresh outta the oven.
>>
Alright, got Ginny and Rich with just 5700 jewels, gotta stop here, I'd really pull more for Wil but it's not worth it when the Unlimited banner's next and I want everyone in there.
Time to see how much will the other banner take, hopefully Emilia and Alkaiser don't run away too much.
Best of luck to you bros.

what the fuck, conquest gives a GLEX Welfare Alkaiser?
>>
Posted in ded thread
>>882963
Oof, my girl Emmie always makes me pay. She came on the 14th pull but I got the other three along the way. Alkaiser on the 5th pull, ZEKE and Mei-ling came together on the 6th. She REALLY made me pay. Only have a measly 11k jewels now, so I'll depend on the conquest jewels to get me back up to 45k for ITOKEN.
>>882978
Looks like this welfare Alkaiser adds nothing except Ki Meditation which I don't see myself using on him. Al-Phoenix can be amp'd to go from 10 to 8 BP, S to SS damage and gain the Fast tag. Am I right to assume it's not worth it 'cause he always wants to be using Punishing Fist anyway?
>>
Since both banners will last 20 days, I'm going to wait a little to decide if I should pull
>>
>>882992
If you have Punishing Combo there's no point in having Al-Phoenix+, unless you need a sun nuke in an AGI spot of course, Ki Meditation is a decent skill though, might come in handy in the future.

>>882994
That's the smart thing to do. My mind was made up last year 'cause faves, so I dove in deep like a crazy fella.

Yeah, Prefecture collabs are so soulful. I love that they bothered to make the event stamina pots onsen milk instead of just changing the color of the liquid in the vial like normal. Makes me wanna rewatch Zombieland Saga, which I still think would be the best collab if this game ever had collab characters.

>>
>>882994
I got Emelia and Alkaiser because they have a previous GLEX style. I'm waiting until the end of this month and then pulling on SF2 for the entire thing because I like all of those characters.

Hope they release a bundle with ITOKEN because otherwise that style isn't coming into my hands. And I still have that sense of deja vu that they've got more shit in the works to induce a nightmare.

Not for awhile. Hell none of these banners are crucial either. You're rolling exclusively out of love here.
>>
>>883296
Not really, unless heavy buffs happen the more notable characters from the next twin banners are Ruby, Iskandar, Nacht Zweiger and maybe Skya, none of them are must pull unless you're missing out on one of the niches these styles offer.
Ruby's an excellent INT Heat ST Nuker, one of the very best in her field, Iskandar's Hector but better in every possible way, Nacht is the best AoE Blunt farming machine while Skya's one of the best BP batteries in the game and really nice for bow sims as a result.
People make a big deal out of Itoken but he's not important either, he's a good buffer and has a really nice 5BP party heal, but only really needed for mace sims, he does ZERO damage and his party buffs aren't as comprehensive as Matriarch, and unless GL changes that his banner is also pretty garbage outside of him so it's a tough fishing session to swallow.

>>883368
Nta, but I think I'm gonna try to skip until the SaGa fest, the most important set of banners in the game for me. Maybe I can grow my 11k to 90k by then.
>>883483
I believe the conquest notice mentioned an SS club and SS fist as rewards. Maybe the club is earth for Ginny? Could see it being fire for Wil too. Fire/earth like Macha's staff would be extremely based, but I doubt we're that lucky.
>>
>>883596
Who are you saving for? I'm in the gem mines now for Red.
>>
>>883596
The club is Fire attuned, it's for Wil, not Ginny.
Doesn't matter much since Rensei is coming soon to GL anyway, it's a minor annoyance.
And yeah, if you don't need anybody to cover something from the nest twin banner it would be wise to save up, the classic SaGa banners are also not too far away from now and Megami is a pretty good investment even without considering possible buffs or change.
I'm personally gonna skip Itoken's banner since I'm at 51K and will probably go broke soon, I'd like to save for some of the later banners as I've got Kami, Megami and LDS on my sights as personal favorites.

The entirety of SaGa 1/2/3, the FFL trilogy are the only SaGa games I've beaten to completion and some of my favourite GB games. Last summer I somehow got the luckiest I've ever been and got everyone across the four (I think it was four) banners with only having to go to pity once. My goal in this game is to get all the styles from those three games.
Gonna be buying one of the biggest jewel packs to help, debating on whether I should buy the one on sale during anniversary now or wait and see if there's a sale during SaGa Fest.
Good luck getting Red! My goal would be a lot easier to save for if this game didn't make me love a lot more SaGa characters like him.
>>883619
>Fire
Damn, poor Ginnybros. I have all her other styles but had to skip this one, sadly.
>if you don't need anybody to cover something from the nest twin banner it would be wise to save up
What niches does that banner cover? Only weapon groups I need to shore up a bit are bow and s.sword, only element that needs improvement is pierce and for debuffers, I could use a second DEX or WIL one but aren't in too much of a hurry to get one.
I wanted to pull for ITOKEN solely because I love his music, but I definitely don't need his style so that might be a skip too.
>>
>>883630
I already made a post about the next twin banner but only the more notable characters, to make a slightly more comprehensive qrd though:

>Ruby
One of the very best INT Heat ST DPS out there, although lacking top tier skills like Crimson Flare+ or the Polka family special Scattered Explosions, has a neat odd/even turn passive that buffs her AGI/INT, also has a Saruin tier coinflip for +2BP and max ATK boost for 1 turn
>Iskandar
STR frontliner tank with a strong T1 nuke, constant self buffing and a self heal lloop, think the recent UDX Hector but better at everything, probably the best meatshield in the game outside of Mask.
>Laura
Basically NY Golden Lion but with max provoke for 4 rounds and an AoE deflect pierce counter and a shitload of counter damage multipliers, very niche but easily the best at her job, can out DPS Fish Forneus with ease, her only issue is that her deflect skill is a stance, so it doesn't go off on AUTO.
>Ventus
25% coin flip spear DPS, can chase with a SSSS tier pierce nuke by using any skills other than his skill 3, highly unstable, has the same odd/even turn self buffs as Ruby at least

>Selma
ST rapier pierce nuker, her original kit is a mess though so I expect some reworks.
Her strategy is to spam her skill 2 nuke for constant DEX buffing on long fights, but has two dead passives that prevent her from being good.
>Nebelstern
Very simple, no gimmick spear ST DPS unless reworked, that's it
>Nacht Zweiger
Dora style turn 1 bunt farmer, probably the best thing in this banner, hits really hard on T1 and maybe T3 for blunt, has recoil, does nothing other than this however, pure farm style.
>Skya
Bow user with a really nice 5BP skill that self heals AND gives 1BP to everyone, also has Meiling's Vivify for a 25% change of getting those 5BP back in a turn, also has a 35% deflect passive iirc
>>
>>883667
thanks for the qrd and damn, they both sound tempting in the sense that I could definitely skip but if I got them I'd see some nice improvements, especially to my weaker elements and weapons. But yeah, nothing mandatory so I guess I can relax a little.
>>
>>882951
>clown is sealed in the Abyss
Perhaps we'll see her again some day. At the very least, she should be able to be summoned as an Otherworld Warrior like Byunei and the rest. Playable clown when?
>>
>>883691
Honestly none of these styles are particularly important.
Ruby's real good, but if you got Clown dad stacked with his key styles you don't really need her right now, later on you can also invest in Onyx if you want a more russian roulette style of INT heat DPS, she's not as consistent as Ruby but is still one of the more competent people in the niche.
Iskandar is pretty nice but honestly doesn't see a lot of use because other people are better at cycling damage even if they can't soak as much damage as he does.
Laura doesn't see a lot of use either outside of her niche, in which she's admittedly god tier, but it's not like you need her to deal with certain tower stages, there's other people who can cover that niche, not as well as her but also not that worse than she is.
Ventus is just too unreliable to be considered good, it's only worth it when we're considering Matriarch strats for buff stacking and even there you'd had better people for the job.
Selma's plain mediocre to bad unless big buffs happen.
Nebelstern just exists.
Nacht is really nice but again, you can live without if you have other people like Coppelia or Alkaiser, they're not as efficient but fill the niche just fine.
Skya is tempting and fairly unique at what she does but again, a niche support choice.
>>883757
A bit later down the line actually

Holy moly that fight against Macha on Floor 190. GLEX Asellus wasn't enough, I had to bring in Zozma too for double Mirage Step spam. Seemed like her minions were the worst part, I could breathe easy after they went down. If I have to fight her again on Floor 200, I'll be pushed to my limits.
>>883779
That's good news!
>>
Oof, now I see what the guy in the last thread said about a DEX debuffer being mandatory to pass Floor 191. GLEX Undine can spam her DEX debuff every turn to keep the boss in check, the problem is the two adds. I can't aoe DEX debuff so I'm sort of stuck. I wonder if Baum-chan could make the squad tanky enough to survive.
>>
I'm so fucking tilted. Fuck this worm. I will forever be buttmad I don't have Byunei's 3rd SS style. I must abandon my climb at 191.
Desert Lance EX with Mariah/Mat/Undine/PWR/Schirach (Incense) got me halfway through, but it inevitably falls apart from rng.
>>
>>883182
Seriously? I guess it is fine if he was stuck one trash weapon type.
Any Japanese server players who got max score here also? Is it that bad that it takes half a year to complete?
>>
A pixel away from killing Romancing Ludwig, I know I can do this with enough resets. Has anyone beaten the 2 special Ludwig fights where you need to use characters from certain series? This fight is hard enough as it is, I can't imagine not being able to use Asellus and Barbara on the same team.
>>
Yes, beat Romancing and beat the RS1/RS2/RS3 stage! Didn't expect it to be easier than the one that let me bring Asellus, but the three latest GLEXs worked out great. Really happy I could use my girl Ellen too.
Back to the drawing board with this last SF1/SF2/SSG/SaGaRS stage. Asellus is a lock and Madeline too for damage, but I don't know who else to use. Probably Elysed too.
>>
And boom, there we go. White Rose mostly doled out heals (primarily to Maddy but one to Elysed to revive her). Elysed spammed her s2 whenever she had 6 BP, Lighting+ for filler. Maddy spammed Luna Fulgar. I still don't have UDx Urpina (one of my top 3 regrets) so the best single target move I had for her was Doppelgangers+ which was all she used.
Asellus started with a 0 BP kick so she could use her s3 on turn 2 (it's necessary for her to fish 1 counter on that turn to phase change). Then she used Rising Nova+ whenever she was able. OD ftw.

What should I do with Emelia's skills? I have all her styles. I'm looking at the inherit suggestions on the reddit review and he's talking about amping Trick Shot and Random Shot as well as mentioning Total Shot and Bullet Dance. I figured I'd just inherit Bullet Dance vs single target and Bolt Thrower for aoe.
>>
>>883990
Random Shot would make for slightly more efficient AoE cycling I guess.
Bullet Dance is the obvious choice because it leads to pretty great ST DPS on this Emilia.
Wouldn't use Bolt Thrower on this Emilia at all if ask me, I'd just stick to GLEX Emilia because she has superior damage passives, coin flips for two bolt throwers in a row are simply better too, if she gets the coin flip the AoE damage is Saruin/Gerard tier which means Emilia just handles anything on the screen on her own, which is big, Pref Emilia just can't do that.
>>
>>883996
Thanks, so I'll use her latest style with Bullet Dance on single target fights and stick with good ol' GLEX for aoe.

Fuck off everyone who said that Bertrand is a meme style, this guy is so useful in both AoE and ST conquest farming
>>
>>884556
they didn't say he was a meme style. They said he has no future. And he doesn't.

But they failed to mention the fact that he's by far the best farming style in the game with nobody else coming even remotely close.
>>
>>884565
Eh, he's good but not really the best farming character in the game at all, especially since you need two of his styles to actually make him work at all in the first place.
Like everything in the game he's worthless if he can't hit weaknesses and also kill something to get the BP refund necessary for him to spam Frost Quake over and over, he's strong and with a virtually flawless rotation if you got both of his styles, but the actual content where you can use Bert to his fullest just isn't there in terms of frequency.
Compared to characters who only need one style to have similar performance (Saruin, GLEX Emilia, GLEX Azami) and also have a future, it's understandable why Bert gets a bad rap, even in this conquest's context, Saruin with Destructive Blow is just as efficient and can carry four trainees on his shoulders.
>>
>>884587
>Saruin with Destructive Blow is just as efficient
For two waves sure. Bert covers 3 waves and has more elemental coverage. Nobody else can do 3 waves solo like he can in 3 actions.

Needing additional styles, while indeed a demerit, is hardly big enough to take away what he has. Which is his status as an extremely efficient farmer.
>>
The fact that Mei-ling hasn't learned her s3 by now almost feels like a glitch.
>>
>>884556
i didnt have any gems to roll his first style or else i woulda got him
>>
>>884640
I don't know, Frost Quake is cold/shadow, hardly more elemental coverage than people like Saruin since both are double attribute farming, not to mention Frost Quake is a B power spell (effectively an A with his passives but still) while more and more people are starting to rock A power wipes with comparable power passives.
Bert's thing is, if you do get the content where he can enforce his 3 round rotation with Frost Quake and effectively do a one man show he's great, but said content is far too rare for him to really shine, the vast majority of the time you'll be doing two men carries for three stages.
Don't get me wrong, he's one of the more efficient farmers in the game even without his best case scenario, just not what I'd call the best, and severely hampered in terms of worth due to the aforementioned issues, one of which is a literal death sentence.
>>884688
It's a tech, so if Meiling gets stuck casting Heat Wave+ over and over she won't roll the dice for tech learning as she's automatically put in a casting state.

>>
>>884711
>and every time I get lucky early I have to go to pity for the other good style
Can't blame ya there, I'm the exact same way. And usually I ignore that warning to my own detriment.
>>
>>884703
frost quake is cold shadow, abbadon (yeah I know but it's there) is fire shadow. He's got three elements. Abaddon (yeah I know) is 2 turns only.

The main point is his loops, he's extremely effective at them and there are multiple characters that can assist regardless of type.
>the vast majority of the time you'll be doing two men carries for three stages.
That's never been a point of contention. He's the only one who has enough juice in his tank to be a major contributor for all 3 waves.
Nobody else does that, they all simmer out by wave 3 or have to skip wave 2.

This is the entire reason he's been 3/4 traineeing everything.

I don't care about Bert though. Unless he gets a GLEX (and if he doesn't during the robin banner he won't ever period) I neither need nor care about any of his styles.
>>
>>884711
Saruin's a really good style but he's going to be heavily powercrept soon, even though when it comes to T2/3 for shadow/heat he'll still be very relevant as long as he get his coinfilp, the only people who can output that kind of massive raw AoE damage are are still uncommon, outside of Saruin only GLEX Emilia and Gerard can drop a full field 100K+ bomb, and the upcoming Kami 3 I guess but if he's kept as he was in JP he'll need to get TWO coinflips for that kind of damage.
Gerard's also really good for grinding stages in this conquest as there's lots of undeads that will get melted on T2, don't have to worry about stray dullahans taking more time than needed.
>>884721
Ah yes, if we consider Abaddon Hands sure, he does have more coverage than the average styles, I wasn't considering that at all because it didn't factor in a 3 stage rotation.
And in Bert's defense, Abaddon Hands will be amplifiable too eventually so it becomes an A power fast, which is pretty good.
>>
>>883667
>>883779
Fug, I just remembered that Nacht is a mecha, and I always pull for mecha. Probably gonna have to be the first one that I skip, hopefully it gets a rerun before Super Mecha Festival hits global.

>>884772
Thank you! Time to plan out my pulls for the next year in vain, 'cause global gonna global.
>>
>>884779
The nodes scale according to your party's CP level iirc, the enemy batches are also randomly selected from a list instead of being fixed like event/main stages

Barrage Program's a lot of fun. Just pop pop pop, watchin' niggas drop.
>>
>>884973
Any way I can cheese it to complete the nodes? Like putting one or two low CP dorks in?
Been playing for less than a week, sorry for the dumb question.
>>
>>885167
If you get all four shots it's pretty crazy, despite Zeke's low damage multipliers, one of the strongest nukes in the game easily
>>885366
No worries, it's pretty evident.
Since the game readjusts enemy scaling to your CP you'll actually want to put the best people you've got, it's better to be at your best possible comp than trying to cheat, and you can always retry as many times as you like.
This conquest has enemies that are mostly weak to slash, fire, blunt and sun, so working around that is a good idea, depending on your best team you might want to actually focus on either single enemy nodes or mobs, albeit unfortunately tricks that used to work in the past like IK abuse are not reliable anymore, especially in this conquest where a lot of mobs are undead too, but in single enemy nodes you might get away with at least one IK out of two.
Worse comes to worst, grind Main a bit until you can grind a node comfortably, Conquest is goona last quite a few days so there's no hurry.

The hardest part of the game is right when you start, but if you keep at it and grind enough to get to the plateau needed to create at least one stable farming team, you're set for life, don't give up anon.
>>
Anyone else being a madman and potentially skipping all prefecture banners? I already have my favorites and most of the "meta" units so there's no point unless they'll somehow pull a surprise and insanely buff some of these styles or come out with a random GLEX prefecture unit out of the blue. It's weird since normally I'd immediately dive like I did with prefecture Asellus.

Thanks, anon, I'll try.

It just feels like with my current roster I barely stay ahead of the difficulty curve even on single enemy nodes, all while decked out in upgraded S gear and some SS weapon pieces from free gibs.

Was thinking about rolling on some of the banners that are still around to somewhat remedy the situation.
>>
>>885415
No point in pulling unless you've got favorites, outside of unexpected buffs and GLEX you won't see major increments in efficiency until the end of the year starting with the halloween banner at the earliest
>>885416
I can vouch for GLEX Azami but my AGI roster is still admittedly lacking as I've missed people like Boston, GLEX Red etc., if you're stacked you probably won't need her despite how good she is, only get her if you want to make sure future Azami gets more tool, all of the stuff on this one is top tier inheritance material.
>>885464
If you're familiar with the series you more or less know half of what you need to know already.
If you don't it's kind of longer to explain, to keep it short
>You need different comps for farming mooks and bossing
>You need to farm good equipment to outfit multiple teams
>You need to unlock and use different formations according to both the fight and what you have on your hands
>Above all you need to create an efficient grinding engine asap because that's what matters most
Basically, you need competent healers, people who can cover AoE and single target on all possible attributes, tanks, counter fishers and buffers/debuffers.

Grinding engines are mostly about clearing waves through AoE attackers, the more valuable being the ones with strong [Fast]techs, multiattributes and good rotations so you can use two people to carry other three trainees.
Boss grind is twofold:
One is about trying to blitz a boss in one or two rounds, you USUALLY need strong single target nukers for this but some rare bosses have adds, so strong t1 AoE is valuable too.
The other is having a team that can survive for enough rounds to reach a certain damage score and then quickly die off, this is for conquest raid final bosses.
Then there's a select couple of must have styles, namely Matriarch 1, ND and any Agi/Dex debuffer of your choice for the most challenging stuff, but this is all for optional content that is there purely for flexing.
>>
>>885476
thanks boss
>>
>>885464
Also in regards to the current banners:
>2nd anniversary
Azami is very high value for both farming and bossing, I highly suggest you to fish for her because she'll be able to help out in farming tremendously.
Barbara is one of the best offensive supporters in the game and will get better once you fish her platinum style with Flamenco Muse, can help out with both grinding and bossing
Vampy's a trap pull, she's merely average at best
>Romancing Cordelia
Rich is MVP, one of the best farming engines to this day, will also get better later on
Cordelia is a competent pierce nuker for bosses but can be disregarded, not vital.
Ginny is probably the best single target STR/INT/AGI debuffer you can get, she also has good inheritance options with styles you can fish in the plat pool, namely a very powerful st nuke for blunt and Petra Delta+ for petryfing things
Wil is a competent boss DEX debuffer that can also bring some Heat utility, good value and versatily but not the best you can get in the field
>Romancing Emilia
Mei Ling is the most efficient mass AGI debuffer you can find right now and overall a competent and versatile style for sun content and comps, she can also get a heal from her plat style on top of a decent sun nuke, good value.
Alkaiser has a nice sun blunt skill for farming, an extremely valuable mass heal for emergency healing and overall decent performance for blunt/sun in an AGI spot once you'll get his plat styles so you can inherit Al Phoenix.
Zeke is very niche, but has one of the very best blunt nukes in the game and can also fish for counters, wouldn't hunt it down but is a good style if you get him while looking for somebody else
Emilia's an alright style but is very, very reliant on her limited styles to work, so in your case it's probably not worth it until they repring her Gradius style.

in short, Azami, Barbara, Rich, Ginny, Alkaiser and Meiling are probably the most valuable people you can get in limited banners right now.
>>
>>885387
>If you get all four shots it's pretty crazy, despite Zeke's low damage multipliers, one of the strongest nukes in the game easily
Yeah, I'm really impressed by how high its damage is despite ZEKE not having much in the way of damage passives. Makes me happy that they can make a solid damage dealing style without having to spend all three passives on damage boosts and leave room for cool things like Scrum Guard. Of course, multi-hit means I gotta get lucky, but it's been satisfying seeing one party member soften three mobs with an aoe and then ZEKE follow up with a bang, bang, bang three-shot that kills them all. I should go check out what his Super Mecha Festival style gives him.
And speaking of bigger numbers thanks to high grades instead of big stats/passives, holy shit that new Alkaiser heal is fucking mint! I only saw it once when he first learned it 'cause I've been auto-grinding instead of doing anything manual with him, but I saw 1770 pop in green numbers and my jaw dropped. So that's what people mean by an "S grade heal". Even with that low LOV stat, jeez.

Went into a stage named after a ninja village in Saga prefecture. Looked it up to see if it was real, turns out it's a ninja theme park. Seems like a pretty fun place for kids, they must've made mad bank when Naruto was airing.
>>
>>885509
All the prefecture events are basically giant ads for the Saga prefecture, the various bosses being all about Ureshino/Takeo onsen, or the various stages being references to key locations in the prefecture.

It's a neat project all in all, especially since now Japan has a prefecture wide SaGa themed festival too.

GLEX Azami is pretty good
Strong for fast farming, terrific single target. Covers nuking in both Slash and blunt flavors. That said. Trick Pumpkin is no punishing combo so you're only truly bringing her along for Go for Broke.
The recoil is 30%, it triggers on hits for each hit so the total recoil damage is ~13%.
Paralyzes her but even without cleansing she mogs on most of the cast in a protracted fight against slash weak enemies due to how frequently she can use her nuke.

Nobody knows when reprints will happen, right now your biggest priority is grinding the shit out of your teams and building up as many farming comps as you can, as fast as you can.

>Where do you get T3 hidden stat unlocks?
The main renewable method will be from new floors of the Spiral Corridor that global hasn't added yet for some reason (I'm looking at JP banner list and we're already past the latest Spiral pool update).
Right now you can get a few of them from the global exclusive Ludwig limited time event. You need to clear all 15 stages and then three bonus stages unlock (Romancing, use only SF1/SF2/SSG/RSRS characters and use only RS1/RS2/RS3 characters). Clearing the bonus stages gives you gold testaments for tier 3 hidden stats. Though you don't even get enough to fully unlock hidden stats for character, as seen by my pain captured here >>883965

Does the gae ever go beyond just mindless Auto? I haven't had to manually control the game once. I was hoping for a mobile Romancing SaGa with just the battle system attached, not AFK arena.
>>
>>887058
Generally there are a few manual only fights an event. With the exception of conquests which exist only for auto.
And I guess the exception of world tower and the recently departed pandemonium where 150+ was almost exclusively manual.

Ludwig that's up right now is manual (depending on your box) starting at Ludwig 10 and Mock Battle Evelyn is manual only starting that Evelyn 4)
>>
>>887058
Only the hardest content is manual focused, e.g. romancing bosses, some puzzle events, late Tower floors etc.
Generally speaking the main meat of this game is cooking up Auto teams that are as effective as they can possibly be.
Some styles are also specifically geared towards this, certain styles are kinda bad on auto but are really good on manual, certain styles are good on auto but with certain skills can get even better on manual.

is it just me or is the crafted S weapon on JP vastly superior than old ss weapons ?

Why does my Gerard do so little damage? I hear Galactic Rift spoke about as if it's one of the most powerful aoes in the game, but it only seems to do around 45k vs dojo and Pandemonium mobs. I have the SS Light+ sword equipped on him, and recently got Galactic Rift to rank 99 thanks to Seeker's Path but I'm not noticing a difference after grinding it up. He's in a 50% INT slot on Anima Stream. Only thing that's not maxed is his level; he's level 39 but would hitting 50 double his damage or something? I think not.
>>
>>887497
Are you hitting weaknesses?
My gerard's almost fully maxed out and can easily get 90K on things weak to Sun on T2
>>
so I rerolled an acct with bunch of banner characters but Mei Lings doing so much less damage than everyone else...
>>
>>887762
Mei Ling's mainly an AGI debuffer/Sun comp supporter, she's not there for damage, she's there to make sure enemy casters have the worst day of their life.
Also keep in mind Mei Ling is an odd DEX/INT hybrid, so her damage varies wildly depending on which slot you put her in and what you use, if you want her for the gun techs put her in a DEX slot, otherwise put her in an INT slot, although there's the Reverse Sigmoid formation that has 25% DEX/INT slots too.
The plat style gives her a pretty decent Sun/Blunt nuke that buffs the party sun's damage as well, and with a bit of luck becomes pretty consistent in terms of use with her pref style thanks to the 25% chance to get 5BP back.
>>
>>887575
Mostly not, no. That would just trigger an additional "large" damage passive plus whatever the regular weakness multiplier is. That still doesn't sound like it would more than double my damage.
>>887762
She's a support/healer/debuffer bro.

When are they announcing the next banners? I'm kinda debating on whether to roll on Azami banner or hold.

Should be tonight. I had a feeling this was going to happen. With the next stream on the 24th the next banner is pushed from Thursday to Friday. And our 24th banner will be right before reset likely.
I'm not confident enough to say it's not going to be ITOKEN. But I'd be surprised if it was based entirely on how things are lining up for us.

>>888295
I gather that ITOKEN is not a must have, since he has no other styles to inherit from?
>>
>>887981
If you're not hitting weaknesses Gerard's not gonna do much, but if you really maxed him out in terms of stats, ranks and equipment, even at his lowest (no imperial assault, GLEX Barbara or matriarch/Mei Ling sun buffs) he should handily hit for at the very least 80K on weakness with Galaxy.
>>888281
Friday I guess? Azami's banner is still up for four days and they usually announce new banners two days before one of the current banners expires.
>>888311
ITOKEN is only a must for club simulations, by the time GL gets that content he will probably have a rerun.

Have anyone tried out the new Aisha on JP? She just spams the 3rd move in auto and it does so little damage...
>>
>>888335
That's to be expected because it's C power. its utility is used for hard situations because it's aoe agility down + stun chance. her T2 is also nice for bossing: 6BP/A power with morale down. Overall, pretty awesome unit for hard content + backup in farm teams.
>>
>>888335
Why are you expecting high damage from a Jammer, on a C power AoE?
Put it to 12 if you don't need it so she can loop her Skill 2, and don't forget your earth rapier either since she's a hybrid caster.
>>
Ludwig is filtering me on level 12?? WTF bros?

Sad news, Ruby got nerfed big time for GL, Laura got reworked a fair bit so it's hard to say whether she's better or worse
Anyhow:
>Iskandar
Placebo STR and CHA buff, untouched otherwise
>Ruby
Placebo stat buffs
Passive 1 has been changed into a large chance to get a large INT buff+2BP instead of a extra large ATK enhancement for one turn+2BP
Passive 2 has been changed from extra large buffs to INT/AGI on odd/even turns to extra large probability to debuff WIL(Large) to one random enemy
Skill 2 now decreases INT(Medium) when it lands
>Ventus
Placebo stat buff
Same treatment as Ruby so he lost his passive 2 for STR/AGI large buffs on Odd/Even turns for Weakness Advantage 4
>Laura
[Round begins] Taunt (extra large effect, 4 turns) and increases own STR (large effect)> [HP full] Increases attack damage (large effect), evade when being attacked (extra large probability)
High battle tension>Increases attack damage (medium effect), BP+2 at the beginning of battle
Skill 2 is now B damage instead of C damage and recovers HP(Very small effect)
Skill 3 now recovers HP(Medium effect)

So long story short, Ruby is no longer crazy heat DPS, she's now more of a WIL debuffer, but that means she needs to use Fire Rat from her S style instead of cycling her 0BP skill, big nerf for no reason, not sure why they're removing Unlimited's special passives, what are they thinking?
Ventus is now a bit more stable in his damage output but since they didn't buff the chance to chase with Buster Lancer he's still unreliable, and can't even get faster in matriarch comps through buff stacking because again, no Unlimited passives anymore.
Laura's a mixed bag, she now hits even harder than she did, and has better HP upkeep and defensive tools (Iguess the evasion chance is 37%, or maybe 50% since it's extra large?), but she's still stance based and needs full HP to be on top shape. still a beast of a style on manual but niche nonetheless.
>>
These are the anniversary styles?
This is really disappointing compared to Matriarch and Jo last year that are still useful to this day, I just hope they make a second round of GLEX to compensate
>>
>>889119
>maybe 50% since it's extra large?
yeah it'd be 50%

So if it's only like a single aoe a turn it's not bad but if she's in an aggro spot to exploit her counter and the boss or mobs hits 4-6 times
We're at a 6% for her to keep her passive (as it only works on full hp) to a >2% chance to keep her passive.

It's... not going to have a lot of mileage if she's trying to maintain the counter spot.

>>889126
We have a stream on the 24th and they adjusted our banner release schedule to match up with a 24 reset banner. I would be insanely surprised if it wasn't a second GLEX wave with how hard they repurposed Ruby into a worse Scorn
>>
>>889126
They're good styles, some of them are still really good styles, not sure why they hit Ruby with the nerf stick given how they buff everyone in GL, it's not like INT heat is a crowded niche either now that the first season OCs are dead.
Also it's disingenuoyu to compare people to a super specialized character like matriarch, she only exists to buff every turn, as crucial as that might be for SOME hard content she's not that great of a character, and Jo has been long since surpassed by many other characters to the point she's not really seeing much use at all in GL outside of farming, where she's just ok.
Maybe Robin Gal will change that, but since they also kept the charge on Pref Cody, it's hard to say whether they'll change her own charge nuke, if they don't she'll be very skippable.
>>889128
It's not that bad since as long as we're talking about direct AoE she'll counter and recover HP, for things like NPC stages/Dojo/Towers she's still great and she'll be the best at the job.
All in all she has higher highs than JP Laura but lower lows, more survivability but slightly more unstable damage output, which I'm not really sure how worse it is compared to JP since Skill 2 is now B instead of C, we'd need to know the exact math to see if she's truly hitting that lower on GL if she's not at full HP.

At this point I can only hope they buff Selma to not not be garbage and make Nebelstern something more than an outdated damage stick, and give us some good GLEX as an apology for kneecapping Ruby.
>>
Welp, after the news decided to roll on azami banner and got her on the second 10-pull. Are Barbara and VL decent enough to continue or should I hold?
>>
>>889140
Barbara's good, VL isn't.
You already got a big jackpot, save for the future, Barbara enables some fun and pretty effective comps but she's not vital, you can get her later through suptix or reprints.
>>
>>889140
Barbara is pretty dope and let's you do other crap but Vampy is of dubious value unless they make more fights which are buff resistant in which her ability to not die is actually leveraged. Azami is the star of the banner and that hasn't changed.

>>889134
>and recover HP
It's not exactly a whole lot. At most 140 HP is pretty puny. But you are right in that she's the best counter tank in the game bar none. If fights end before or on the third turn then she mogs all over like of global Forneus. As long as you get lucky on your indirect coinflips. Which was the only thing I was really talking about.

>where she's just ok.
Not entirely fair. Jo 3's Spectacle gate hits pretty damn hard and unless I'm mistaken there's neither cold nor heat that hits harder turn 1 by a fairly sizeable margin.

Anyways this banner is still a pretty damn stout "wait and see" if you have characters that can fulfill these functions. Here's hoping the 24th spices things up.
>>
so for passive buff,"small" is 10%, mid is 15%, large is 20% ?
>>
>>889302
Depends on the move.
>we still haven't killed Eel
Die already.
>>
>They nerfed people in Nacht Zweiger's banner too
Why
>>
Something weird happened while I was grinding conquest for stats - at around 1.2-1.3k all my characters ceased getting any stat-ups except HP, but all of them still have moderate glowing aura.

I gather that I hit stat limit on them, but is it supposed to be that much lower than HP? Many mobs still hit me for truckloads and I was hoping that grinding out some stats will help with that, but if from this point onwards I only get HP then I'm at a loss as to how to lower incoming damage further.
>>
>>890369
>but is it supposed to be that much lower than HP
It is, if you're in the 150-5 range then you've hit the current stat ceiling.
>Many mobs still hit me for truckloads
Working as intended
>>
>>890383
How do I mitigate that, then?
Didn't find many sources of SS armor or gear if that's what I need.
>>
>>890595
Just like in the mainlines games you kill them before they kill you, or abuse certain statuses like Stun/Petrify/Paralysis.
I take you're the new guy who started recently, generally speaking mobs won't be a problem once you get your box more stacked so your comps just steamroll through them with the proper skill rotations, it will take some time before you get there though, outside of grinding you do need good equipment, amplifications, extra stats etc. before your farming teams can just blindly pulverize mobs.
Even there in certain parts of the game like higher tower floors you'll still want to play on manual and have some general counterplay for nastier stuff.
Having good armor+gear with abate all stones on both does help, especially since two abate all stones mean a global damage reduction of 20%, but in the harder content that's usually just the very basics you need, it will be more about playing on things like specific passives like styles with Scrum Guard or sources of passive healing.

>>890897
Jeez, it's 10%? I feel worse for not getting anything now. But if they do this again with a more recent batch, it'll be fantastic for ones I'm missing.
This bottomless banner has styles from between 1st and 1.5 anniversary. It's 2nd anniversary now, so almost all of them are going to feel pretty outdated compared to the last month of banners. Current banners usually have decent reroll targets for new players, so these sorts of banners are mostly for dumping 45k in to pity a very specific style you really, really want and maybe get a couple old things you missed along the way.

>5000 paid jewel for a guaranteed pick
>the only one i need is fempress and she's in there

>>
>>890827
GLEX Minerva can give her Skill 1/2 to Victoria in the future.
GLEX Coppelia can give any of her skills to the future Plat Coppelia 2, which is kinda big since plat Coppelia 2 will be a really solid style.
GLEX Final Emperor can give his Skill 3 to the future emperor styles and it's still a very good all purpose damage stick to this day
The rest of your list is kinda middling, the OCs are dead for all intents and purposes, this Boston doesn't have a lot of sinergy with future Bostons in terms of inherit, and the RS3 people are...kinda dead right now but this particular Thomas has a strong Skill 3 which might be relevant later.

I splurged most of my savings on it because I wanted Hat Kami and Glex Coppelia but I failed to get either, although I picked up a couple of strays along the way, I've got my pity right now but I still don't know who to choose, and there's also other personal favorites I'd like to get like standard Kami, Esper Girl, NY Mirza or Halloween White Rose.

I wouldn't hold my breath for a second round of GLEX after the bottomless banner, it might happen but it's kind of hard to tell.
Still, this time around they nerfed people instead of buffing them so who knows, GL is sure full of mysteries.
Really not happy about Ruby being kneecapped, I was betting on her for a strong INT heat DPS slot, now I gotta wait for Onyx.

Is HW PWR worth the 33k jewels or is there any future style with a similar setup?

>>891295
There's no style in the game so far with passive WIL party buffs after being "hit", let alone AGI debuffs and a heal.
>>
>>891144
Thanks for the second opinion on my options. I still think PWR is the best choice, as that WIL buffing seems unrivaled. Just bought the 10k jewel pack, which I was planning on adding to my SaGa Fest funds, but I think I will use half of it to grab PWR. But first, I'm gonna wait for someone to answer >>891295's question. Afaik no style in the game even in JP does what PWR does, but I wanna be sure.

I can't remember the last time I had this much trouble with a farming event. Nacht 20 is killing me and Nacht 19's stat ceiling is too low to be worth it. What teams/formations are you guys using for the new event?

For 20? Glex: Minerva, Mikhail, Barbara, Claudia, and Jo 3 I think is what my team was.
Barbara is just there to train her pierce skills which I never got around to doing elsehwere
>>
>>891347
Thanks. Don't have Minerva or Jo 3, and my pierce is fairly weak, but I should probably switch to a Deadly Pierce EX team and only try to train 2 or so featured characters instead of trying to muscle through and train Fempress, Azami, Gerard, Leon and Narwhal's Daughter all at once. I got too used to being able to grind with five "trainees" (quotes because they're all at or close to the previous highest level cap).
>>
>>891337
Mariah, GLEX Mikhail, Jo 3 and Wagnas while training Azami

Did they change Dorra? I swear he was an "archer" type.
>>
>>891337
It's not really a hard event to farm if you're a veteran, by now you should have plenty of pierce/heat styles to put in multiple slots, but if you're really having troubles:
>STR
Any spear user with Multitrust, this means UDX Neidhart, GLEX Minerva etc.
Pref Cody for obvious reasons
Ventus is really good for this, give him his S style Skill 3 as an opener, if he rolls for his chase he's the single best T1 STR DPS you can have for this event, him and Jo are probably the best DPS for this boss period
GLEX Barbara is also good if you amplified Acupuncture
Mystic Asellus, Pref Rich or anyone with Rising Nova+ is also decent in a STR Slot
With a bit of luck Urpina can also do sizeable damage with Torrent fishing but it's not ideal
>DEX
GLEX Mikhail loops his skill 3 for a sizable amount of health on top of good damage
UDX/GLEX Claudia can do considerable T1 damage too with Reverie Trishot
UDX Darque has a strong T1 nuke but can also rotate Stinger for T1+T2, UDX Jamil is comparable
Zeke has also a very strong T1 if the RNG assists you, second only to Ventus RNG in this scenario
Pref Selma is passable
>AGI
Dora can either open with her S bomb or loop her other skills
UDX Valdor can loop Drill Crusher for good damage if the RNG assists you
>INT
Jo, duh
Polka or Barthelemy with Scattered Explosions
Wagnas/Ruby with Rising Flame, Ruby's better since she can eventually loop back to Rising Flame if you don't T1
NY Blue
Pref Wil to some degree, he does have a SS heat nuke and the passives to make it worthwhile, he also has really good survival in case the battle gets longer
>>
>>891359
>>891370
Thanks guys. I settled on Mariah, Therese, Claudia, Azami and Gerard in Deadly Pierce EX. Nice that 4 of those get x3 stats. They clear on turn 3 when Azami wakes up pretty reliably. Turn 1 I can almost kill Nacht, but then turn 2 things slow way down as someone will probably get stunned and all the big nukes are spent.

Reading that list of options really drives home once again that my spear damage dealer selection sucks; I have literally none of the ones you mentioned.

How idfficult is the series specific Ludwig fights vs Romancing? I managed to beat Romancing but with a few members alive with the cheese shield from GLEX Femps, but the series restrictions are going to give me serious trouble. I'll have to raise a few more styles near max. maybe try out Virgil in this fight in the SF1+ round. I have Myst Asellus and Pref Alkaiser, it's choosing which PWR and a final 5th style to use for team comps.
>>

Probably around Romancing difficulty if not equal. I posted my clears last thread, checking the archive it looks like I used Fempress/Azami/Ellen/Vampire Lady/Barbara for one and Asellus/Madeline/Urpina/Elysed/White Rose for the other. Both in Amazon Strike EX formation.

You have everything you need to do what you want and then some.
>>
>>891465
If you're looking to have an easy time with easy opponents then stick jo (flambe sorbet), summer empress, glex emelia and whatever aoe unit you like and run them on auto on current events to farm stats. grinding stats is pretty much all you do outside of doing hard content.
>>
>>891465
Yup, you're good. Emelia, Undine, Blue, Jo, Matriarch, Final Empress, Lyza, Monika, Wagnas, Ferdinand, Minstrel, Asellus, Barbara, Gustave, Barthelemy, Galahad, Albert, Zozma, Dorra, Gwayne, Aldora, Mesarthim, Princess Rei and Liz can all help you cover the majority of content out there.
I think based on your box it would actually be very worth it for you to do a full (33k) pity on the bottomless banner right now. You're missing everything from it I believe, so there's a ton of styles that'll boost your roster's power significantly. If you don't pull her along the way, I would pity GLEX Princess White Rose (the halloween pumpkin one) as she fills the AGI debuffer role so you could use her with Matriarch to try harder stuff one day if you feel like it. Inherit a heal onto her and you're golden. For that, you can get Ray of Hope from her free S style in the Robin Cup exchange.

Had to reach pity but I got this along the way, not even mad about it.
>>
>>891547
Very nice. I'm biased in favour of SaGa 1&2 but I still use Human F and Human M today. Christmas Rei is a great upgrade to her older style and great dark damage. GLEX Mikhail is fantastic pierce damage. Christmas Urpina has some very nice aoe for farming. Halloween Cat has a guaranteed hit STR/INT debuff, pretty handy vs some bosses but you gotta rank it up manually which is a pain even during Seeker's Path. GLEX Sasha's a great healer and can debuff INT. If that's the Valdor with Drill Pierce he's very solid too. Oh shit, you even got GLEX Rocbouquet! Still a fantastic mage, holds up very well.
You made out like a bandit, and seeing that I have all but two of those, you've reminded me again that it's not worth it for me to pity and I should just buy PWR.
>>
Hell yeah. Did my paid pull to pity PWR and got Polka's third SS style! I skipped this and his recent 4th one. If I recall correctly, this is the style that does the most damage with Scattered Explosions, right? It's absolutely loaded with damage passives.
>>
>>891557
I really like how GLEX Roc and Sasha works from what I see in their abilities, and I have to say that HFem seems pretty nice? At least in my eyes but I'm an old player. Can you tell me a basic team? I'm using this party (you can laugh at my equipment, I know its bad lol) but I'd like to know what to change here.

>>891566
Congrats! I love that Polka art + he hits hard from what I have seen in JP vids.

>>891568
Thanks!
Okay, teambuilding. First of all, you're gonna wanna change that formation. Rainbow Rangers is the most common farming one, as it lets you effectively train a variety of characters simultaneously while letting you take advantage of all your various nukes and aoes. Amazon Strike EX is good too if the enemy's weak to slash or Deadly Pierce EX if they're weak to pierce. Anima Stream's probably still best if you're running a mage team targeting an elemental weakness. You can pick all of these up in the formation exchange and if you don't have enough formation medals, just go to the Attacks tab under Events and fight through the easier stages of them until you have enough.
As for who to use, you've got a lot of options. A generic team for say, the quest, I'd probably go Rainbow Rangers with GLEX (Christmas) Urpina or Summer Final Empress in the STR slot, GLEX Emelia in the DEX slot, Dorra or Human F in the AGI slot, Jo's first style in the INT slot and whoever you want in the LOV slot. LOV characters with decent aoes include your GLEX PWR and GLEX Sasha but anyone works so this is your flex slot for training someone else up. That's an aoe team that uses Holy Shining Sword Elegant Sands, Bolt Thrower, Dorra's aoe or Human F's motorcycle move, Sorbet Flambe and whatever to clear waves quickly.
For a single target farming team, such as a conquest boss node, which is ideally what you're running in the conquest for that higher stat cap, I'd go Rainbow Rangers again except this time Zozma in the STR slot with Blood Rage+, Mikhail in the DEX slot with Quadruple Pierce (bump up his s2 to cost the same so he cycles s1 and s3), Human F in the AGI slot but this time max out the bp cost of her s2 so she cycles between s1 and s3, Jo with Checkmate inherited from her second style or Aldora or Christmas Rei or GLEX Roc or even Blue in the INT slot, you have a lot of INT nukes and then whoever in the LOV slot.
>>
Seeing this banner makes me realize how global exclusive styles dropped in quality when compared to Final Empress, Leon, Pumpkin White Rose and Rocbouquet, recent GLEX are all "something that another styles does but a little better" or straight up coomer bait
Maybe they were getting backlash from JP players or they realized these styles completely changed how the game is played
>>
>>891607
GLEX Leon is just the recent UDX Gerard but with more support and worse damage around the board, GLEX Emps is quite literally just the future Plat Emps but with a greatsword instead of a spear, the vast majority of GLEX styles have always been just previews of future styles/balance adjustments, people like GLEX Femps or GLEX White Rose are outliers and have always been so (GL has also already adjusted to those, see the recent GL Ludwig bossfight for a recent example), you can say the same for the recent GLEX Azami too since there's nobody in JP that has such a kit either.
>>
>>891588
Thank you so much anon, I'll run this for the moment and farm to get Rainbow Rangers formation as you said as fast as I can. I really appreciate it.
>>
>>891706
You're welcome, good luck! All those styles should be fine in most content so long as you keep grindin' 'em up. Bear in mind, Rainbow Rangers lowers your END by half so physical attacks will hurt. Farming is usually a strike first and strike hard sort of thing, taking advantage of full hp+ holy weapon stones and such.
>>
I have a lot of the these limited styles but am shocked there is an S Asellus w/Rising Nova I don't have. Also wtf it doesn't have that limited SS Ellen style. I don't think it ever had a repeat.

GLEX White Rose already putting in work on my World Tower climb, this stacking WIL shit is bonkers. I made it to floor 254 last time, cleared it with ease then made Death my bitch on floor 255.

>>
>>891897
what about that slime girl with stacking END ?
>>
>>892025
END stacking doesn't give you meaningful damage reduction on high end content where everything one shots you with 2K/3K damage, you want to avoid things entirely and shut down status effects from stray hits, which is why GLEX White Rose is so effective on certain comps
>>
>>891991
Yeah, they get very tough. I still haven't done the last stage for the previous five attacks; they're permanent so I just wait to powercreep them like Asura. I should probably go back and try a few since it's been a while, but I've got time-limited high difficulty content to focus on.
>>892025
The other guy explained why PWR is generally better for the toughest stuff; I lived in fear of status effects ending a very long turtling run until yesterday. But as far as Golden Baum-chan goes, she's pretty good in specific fights. If the boss is pure physical (rare), she'll help a lot. Most of the time when I use her, it's in counter strats so she can give the party a large guard up with Shrine Dance to weather storms during turns where Fempress doesn't have Imperial Shield up.

Managed to be the series specific Ludwig fights. Genryu Snow was the more important buffer/support than PWR with his buffing hail, and Virgil was way more durable than I realized, he was tanking hits like a damn champ! That allowed Blue, Asselus and Alkaiser to keep attacking him. I used Amaon EX, but I should have tried Desert Lance EX before it shuts down. The RS crew gave me far less trouble thanks to the GLEX styles and matriarch of course, but Byunei 3 managed to save me from an untimely restart when she was able to get a couple of counter hits in. one hit pushed him into the 2nd phase, the 2nd counter hit was enough for even a simple attack to do him in. And that was with Matriarch and Azami down and everyone was out of BP!

Man, Saruin on Floor 260 was a real sonuvabitch. I mean a really big meanie. His debuff scrubbing had my brainlet ass at a loss, so I searched for a clear and had all the pieces to do it. GLEX PWR coming in clutch again, this time for her s3 inherited onto her latest style. Full credit to this guy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M1-l3fe2zBQ&ab_channel=SilverWarrior%E6%88%98%E7%A5%9E

Yeah, I hear Virgil with Desert Lance EX is pretty sweet. Didn't manage to get him though. Missed out on Snowy too, who I also hear is an amazing support. Bune 3 is still my biggest regret of a skip. That sounds like a helluva run on that last one Anon, congrats and well done!

Checked, and the crazy thing was, over 90% of the time during the fight when he used Sword of Saruin or Energy Bolt, it targeted for Mirsa (for no damage of course).

Ya know it's funny. Earlier today I'm posting about Baum-chan, and we're comparing her with GLEX PWR. Somehow I get it into my head to take another kick at floor 191 of the Scarlet Grace Pandemonium tower, which I had previously abandoned after discovering I could not beat the Earth Serpent and his Soil Worm minions without an aoe DEX debuffer.
I put Golden Baum and my new GLEX PWR on the team and boom, easy win on the first try. I don't understand how this worked but it worked out beautifully. Stacking END and WIL to the sky along with the usual AGI buffing is a helluva time, I tell ya what.
10 days left on this tower, so maybe if I can make it past this hump, I can go all the way after all.
>>
I'm starting to see the logic behind some of the changes in the recent banners.
Ventus can now open the floodgates for STR buffing a lot more efficiently than in JP, if the coint toss for chase buster complies, if it does, even without Matriarch stacking STR buffs every turn his coin toss busters alone can start hitting for six digits on round 3 IF he gets consistent chases, which is honestly impressive as much as I do miss the AGI stacking, because that indirectly gave him a bit more survivability in matriarch comps, on the other hand if he inherits his S style Skill 3 AND chases, he's the roufas equivalent to Pierce damage for T1, which is what I hoped Pref Cody would have been about but whatever...
I'd go as far as saying that I might have actually underrated him a fair bit, but coin toss characters have such a big caveat it's hard to evaluate them properly.

Laura's still a mixed bag imo, in melee focused bosses/NPC fights she's crazy, arguably better than she was since the new full evasion passive now helps her a lot in evading stray spells, but if she doesn't proc that she loses both damage AND the passive evasion which is a bit too much of a handicap for somebody who can't reliably self top, unlike Iskandar, the lack of a ST nuke also hurts her bossing capabilities but a future style might change that, she's still very strong if you do build entirely around her niche by putting people like Mariah, Golden Baum or anyone with party wide heals, if you do Laura becomes a nearly impregnable fortress, which is pretty great for a lot of tower stages.

Selma's meh, Silver Aegis is still a dead slot even with one more proc and her DEX stacking isn't nearly as impressive as Ventus' STR stacking despite not needing a coin toss to open the floodgates, she's surely more stable but Ventus has much, much crazier highs and a better toolkit for pushing damage in general, still decent for a DEX slot since Ventus is STR, will be pointless on that when Ciato drops though.
>>
Nebelstern...I can see what the intention was, they wanted to make him a more offensive version of Iskandar but for STR Pierce, same exact 11>3 rotation was kept but now he can self buff for five rounds exactly like Iskandar, the issue is that
1) Iskandar comes with pretty mighty STR buildups AND defensive buffs for each turn
2) Iskandar rotates a 3BP dual attribute skill that also self heals for a considerable amount meaning he's tanky as hell
3) If that wasn't enough Iskandar also self buffs WIL every turn which is big for the same reason GLEX White Rose is big
And despite the changes, Nebelstern doesn't have any of this, instead he can inherit a wind based heal spell, which puts him in a more supportive role...for somebody who's built as nothing but a ST damage stick so they didn't really solve any of the issues with him coming from JP.

Nacht isn't really worth mentioning in the sense that nothing fundamentally changed about his kit, outside of having a slightly better ST capability now if you stack AGI high enough but still, nobody would ever bring Nacht to bossfights, it's a farming machine through and through.

Skya and Ruby were both kneecapped hard and I still can't find any redeeming value in their changes, nor any logic behind them outside of giving Polka and Jo one last hurrah as fire casters, as if they needed it, they're still good styles but far from what they were in JP, Skya's loss of vivify hurts her tremendously and Ruby just can't push crazy heat DPS anymore even if she gets lucky with WIL debuff stacking, I'd say she's basically just Stage Wagnas in an INT slot but with better rotations and less attribute covering, which is not bad but not particularly good either, especially since when Stage Kujinshi will drop she'll get mogged in the ST WIL debuff department pretty hard, let's not talk about Red Mage either who will just eclipse her entirely.
>>
>>892409
How would you rank Laura against all the other counter characters we have?
Urpina has been putting in work for me since I got her.
>>
After a handful of tries, Desert Lance EX Virgil works. Virgil got the deathblow last man standing with an overdrifve sunspot, lol.
>>
>>892422
Based
>>
>>892421
Kind of a long topic so I'll try to be as exhaustive as possible because I hate QRDs.

>Urpina
Torrent is a [Fast] Pierce+Slash B power deflect AoE counter and it costs 10BP, while it does go off on Auto you can't really make full use of it unless you play on manual and use Dual Wield Stance to recharge so eh, it's not THAT great since you'll want your tank to have their counters up ASAP, ProResu Urpina can theoretically work around that if she flips enough +2BP coins but the issue is that she'll lose on the damage side when it comes to that and she'll be highly unstable.
Laura's rainbow deflect is a 7BP stance with B power AoE pierce, she loses one attribute compared to Urpina but she has better upkeep and no need for previous styles either, moreover her rainbow deflect self heals, which is big, and she just has far better damage than Urpina, Urpina just can't reach the damage Laura pulls on deflects, not even her GLEX can do it and her GLEX also has the same issue of losing damage output if her HP is not topped, but unlike Laura she can't self top at all.

>Golden Lion
NY GL has a 7BP, B power Slash AoE counter stance, which also gives her back 1BP on every hit, and is further propped up by her passive 1 giving her back a very small amount of BP and a medium STR buff.
The rest of her passive set is similar to Laura's and she can also inherit Lion Stance: Encase to give herself a medium Guard Up and 2BP at 0BP cost, so basically she can keep up Savage Lion ever odd turn, and in the long run, she can match Laura's firepower without needing external buffs, moreover she has a passive for large damage mitigation and a whopping 84% END multiplier.
This might lead you to think "wtf she's basically just Laura but better", there's a big hole in her strategy however:
Savage Lion doesn't deflect, this is a massive issue for mainly two reasons:
One hit kills and Stuns (think attacks like Tackle) just shut down NY GL entirely, Laura just deflects and laughs.
>>
>>892454
>Forneus
Tidal Lure is a 7BP, S power [Fast] Pierce+Cold counter, that leads to Maelstrom, which is S power cold.
Forneus is similar to the aforemention NY Golden Lion in that he has a large damage reduction and HP recovery on hit+very small heals, he has worse damage modifiers however so he can't quite leverage the full power of Maelstrom, doesn't help that his second style doesn't have any defensive passives, and his future style won't make this better either as he won't have any defensive bonus or self heals, so running counters on that is not really desireable since just like Savage Lion, Tidal Lure is not a deflect counter, and so just like Golden Lion, Forneus' role as a counter fisher crumbles the moment he gets hit by a nuke or by something that stuns on hit like again, Tackle, Knee Split and what have you, and unlike Laura he doesn't even a good chance to avoid indirect things like spells, he just eats them and croak whereas Laura can actually flip Solemn Judgment from her field and say that she doesn't get hit, on top of again, hitting harder than any current incarnation of Forneus.

Other than these, there's the extremely recent Asura who has a SS power Aoe counter but it's kind of pointless to talk about it, and maybe the upcoming Boston but his counter is not a proper AoE, rather, three separate C power hits, so again, not really comparable to Laura.

In conclusion, how would I rank Laura among the AoE counter fishers in the game?
Probably Laura=ProResu Urpina>NY GL=Urpina>Forneus.
>>
>>892458
>Probably Laura=ProResu Urpina>NY GL=Urpina>Forneus.
>tfw used Forneus for all the NPC battles
Not the guy asking you questions, but even if he's the worst, fish guy's been doing pretty good by me. It's nice to know that if that's the case, you're pretty much set with any of these.
>>
>>892478
I'm personally ranking Forneus as the lowest because he suffers from all the issues NY GL has while also not having something like Lion Stance: Encase for better defense and cycling, and a slightly worse off toolkit in terms of passives.
That doesn't mean that particular Forneus style is bad, far from it, if I had to deal with enemy batches that were weak to cold I'd bring him over NY GL or Urpina without question, and he still pulls his own in below 180 floors of the world tower, so this ranking is fairly relative and also puts each style in an ideal environment where we consider the best and worst case scenarios for a specific niche which is not really crowded to begin with.
Forneus still does a lot of heavy duty work to this day, he's my personal Dojo 5 clearer and I do not intended to change that any time soon, Laura would surely clear Dojo 5 much faster in 90% of the cases but I'd uninstall the game if I had to do manual Dojo every single day.
>>
>>892458
>>892454
I really appreciate this. I cannot tell which Urpina ProResu is. Is that [I'm Ready]? I didn't know GL had to take damage first.
What do you think about Annie? She can inherit a taunt and has a decent AoE counter but it is not guaranteed.
I'm going to wait to see what the next banner is before I pull the trigger on Laura. She would be a nice to have but gems are kinda light right now. 42k
>>
>>892487
She'll come later on this year, if you look at the english Google docs spreadsheet she's in the fighter section after Pink Tiger.
>What do you think about Annie?
Ehhh, as somebody who has Annie in his top 20 most used units and pulled her GLEX out of sheer favoritism, GLEX Annie's a real mixed bag, honestly clunky to actively use for her counter since her only real way to use it outside of matriarch comps is to inherit Parry and hoping she activates her counter to pull of her Skill 3, which is pretty damn bad since it will activate at Rank 1, and GLEX Annie just doesn't have the passives to make it good no matter how hard she tries.
You CAN get lucky and get it to proc a couple of times per round, it did happen, but even considering her self buffing AND healing I'd never use her over Laura, or even over NY GL or Forneus, there's fishing for RNG and there's Russian Roulette, I like betting on tough odds but I'm no Kyousuke Nanbu if you catch my drift.
>>
>>892487
Also consider another important thing when looking at AoE counter styles:
You want to finish the fight ASAP since you're using them for stages with lots of enemies like the Seven Heroes floors or the various SaGa NPC stages, the point of these styles is not to weather a storm but to kill the fucking storm before it kills you.
What sets Laura apart from EVERYONE ELSE in the game up to this very day in JP is that she can pull off TWO deflects back to back, the only other style that can do something vaguely similar will be the second new year Golden Lion IF you have the first NY golden lion so she can inherit her Savage Lion skill, since NY GL 2 has Power Charge 3, but again, Savage Lion isn't a Deflect so she can still be shut down before getting anything done and doesn't have a passive toolkit for counter styles either.
This is arguably the biggest reason why Laura's on top of her niche, because nobody else is as fast and efficient at it as she is, if for whatever reason she didn't kill things in the first round she WILL kill them on the second round, nobody else can do this.
>>
>>892376
both baum and pwr? Doesn't that mean your dps is very low ?
>>
>>892514
It didn't actually take longer than a normal turtling strat at this point. Hell, it was faster than Antonius right after. Undine's Chill was hitting for pretty nice little chunks every round, and Golden Baum hit weakness too with her s2.
>>
Going like this right now and its working perfectly, thanks anon. My goals right now are getting to 150k so I can safely pitty Silver(was that her name?) Halloween and Undine GW (I don't know why she's called GW if she's literally a summer unit, but eh).

Nice. Now you just gotta get more equipment medals to get SS armor and gear from the equipment exchange and wait for pickaxes to drop in the story again for some full hp+ weapon stones for farming and abate all armor and gear stones for lowering the damage you take.

>Well shit. At least PWR can cleanse, too.
Not if she's dead. We haven't outstatted Evelyn's damage yet. You can evade her pretty easily because her AGI is low. The only real problem is romancing. You need some good strategies to hold that because reaper WILL hit you without dex debuffs and it's usually all she needs to start snowballing her Super Flu on you. Romancing still a menace. But not that bad depending on your box.

>>892409
AFAIK Ruby is potentially THE best ST WIL debuffer in the game thus far. Better even than Scorn with average RNG. Her skill 2 should be a 50% for a large wil debuff and she has access to fire rat.
Fuck all useless for AoE though. But Evelyn still holds that on her back so it's not like it matters right now.

As for counter weenie strats. Pic related. The real reason I want and now use Laura is because she comes baked in with taunt. Urpina may have access to her counter two turns in a row for this fight but she needs a substantial amount of luck even in Tiger Shark to actually get fucking hit with every single attack.
God damn.

I should try Annie again. I feel like I'm not sufficiently unhappy enough.

It's not as simple as that, Scorn has two guaranteed small WIL debuffs per round and rolls with a 37% chance for a third, on top of that he can mass debuff WIL (small) too for a single attack just in case you need it.
Ruby has only one guaranteed small WIL debuff if you use Fire Rat instead of Fire Arrows, then she rolls for a Large one with what should be a 50% chance, meaning if Ruby doesn't roll consistently Scorn leaves her in the dust, Scorn also has a major advantage over Ruby, he rolls for Energy Steal+ chase on any skill he uses, which means he's a lot harder to kill, which means he's also a lot more consistent in terms of debuffing even though in theory Ruby has the chance of doing more damage in the long run, if her other coin toss collaborates.
Stage Kujinshi is a similar deal, he has a 37% chance to apply the same Large WIL debuff as Ruby BUT whenever he lands an attack, Since he has Victim Sword which cases with Shadow Bolt+(which is AoE too) he can, in theory, tank WIL harder than anyone if he passes the checks for both rolls, and regen 4BP too, and similarly to Spite he also has plenty of strong self healing options.

Due to how decay works in this game it's better to have consistent debuffers rather than people who roll for large ones, same reason why Pref Ginny's large INT/STR debuffs aren't so hot because she has a turn cooldown on those skills, as a result GL Ruby's currently inbetween Stage Kujinshi and Spite in that she has theoretically higher highs than Spite if she passes the rolls consistently, but also lower highs than Kujinshi if he passes the rolls consistently.
Performance wise we're seeing the same issue of any coin toss style such as Stage Wagnas, Kami or even the recent Ventus, it's the archetype's greatest strength and greatest weakness, if you get heads then you're doing record breaking performance, if you get tails then you're barely above mediocre.
>>
In Ruby's defense, she and Ventus have been turned into the same slow and steady kind of character Iskandar is, all three of them are about building up buffs/debuffs in the long run, they're all meant for high difficulty content where you'll spend a lot of rounds before killing things, the more the fight goes on the more chances you get to roll for INT buffs and WIL debuffs, if you're lucky Ruby is pretty terrific.
She's worse off than either Iskandar and Ventus at her job though because she's a lot more unreliable.

Iskandar doesn't roll anything, he just passively stacks STR/WIL every turn, on the other hand he's stuck on a 11>3>3>3BP rotation on auto, but that 3BP skill gives him back a massive chunk of HP even if he doesn't hit anything, which is busted, and on manual he still has good options outside of that, but that STR/WIL stacking is obscene in the long run and turns him into a beast.

Ventus now stacks a large STR Buff for every hit he lands AND can chase with a SSSS nuke (meaning he potentially gets two large STR buff in a single round), which means that in just three rounds he's already the virtually strongest pierce DPS in the entire game WITHOUT considering Matriarch+ND buffs to further make him snowball, on manual he gets even better because you can choose to cycle a 9BP SSS column nuke too which can chase with the SSSS Nuke, this leads to insane damage in long fights.

Ruby's issue is that she doubles down on Ventus' package, she has to roll for both INT buffs and WIL debuffs, even if both rolls have actually pretty good rates for the average coin toss there's still two of them, she has the same exact issue as the upcoming Kami where he has to roll for two chases, her overall performance is great on paper but a different thing in practice, she's just too unstable without offering any other gimmick, unlike Stage Kujinshi who also rolls a lot but has a passive counter SSS nuke.
>>

>It's not as simple as that, Scorn has two guaranteed small WIL debuffs per round and rolls with a 37% chance for a third
Two? From what? Scorn only has enervate and that's a 25% chance. Where does the second one come from? The AoE also depends on enervate.
Even owing to decay, on the assumption she's working with 15% and not higher for her now unique ability (15% turn 1%, fail turn 2 11.25% etc)
Now Red Mage I'll give you is different. He coinflips for energy drain and is magnitudes more tanky as a result. His debuff, while only 5%, stacks consistently. On average, it fluctuates from being marginally better to slightly worse. Off the passives alone and owing that he and Ruby roll the exact same thing on average they would break even at T4. Ruby with average luck fluctuates between -15% and -22.5%.
Red Mage peaking at -20%
Ruby's online way faster though. But naturally you're going to take the longer lasting unit... in the future.

Stage Kujinshi is also a misnomer. It's a 37% * 2. The odds of that happening at all is 13%. If you were running some ailment strat you wouldn't be frustrating yourself with resets for that. You'd take Wicked Witch like a sane person.

>>893870
>there's still two of them
To be fair, rarely are you going to be taking her for both functions. You'd either use her as a ramping fire mage OR a wil debuffer. There's only really two flavors of element for wil debuff right now and there were and will be more bosses that are not weak or down right resistant to both flavors.

Alright. This was significantly easier than I could have possibly imagined.

Glex Urpina took like 11 resets. Annie did it in one go and smiled on her way to the finish line. I forget sometimes that she has prism soul and as a result is functionally unhittable once the snowball starts. Which wouldn't matter even if she did get clipped as her passive colorful slash heals for 1k

Guess she doesn't really have a lot of overlap with her previous styles on this one though, rapiers and just 74%+R STR, guess anything from the previous styles outside of Kiai is worthless on this one
Constance looks pretty decent though, all that passive healing is nice in theory, not sure how Promise Bouquet would work out though, I guess it's mostly to enable her passives but I need to take a better look at her whole skillset after I have my dinner.

This was so much easier than floors 191 and 196; those were the two really big walls for me. Couldn't have done it without GLEX White Rose, what a gal. Credit to this guy again for posting good clear videos: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B8OWUh3vXYo&ab_channel=YappiYap
Even without some of his characters, I still had the core needed to do this.
Now I'm going back to the big one, World Tower. I'm on floor 266 of 300 over there and I'm getting worried that it might be all boss floors from here, which would be ridiculous. Floor 260 was a boss of course, Saruin, and floor 261 was a mob floor as expected. But then Floor 262 was a boss floor instead of a mob floor, and it's been bosses ever since. Maybe things'll ease up after I kill all four Sinistrals and their true forms.

I've held off on world tower. If there's a 4th banner and by proxy a 4th GLEX to mark our anniversary I'm going to roll, first on it, than on every single banner available until I get what I want out of them all or run out of store bundles

25% chance to recover her health and cancel all status effects and attribute downs
Gives herself moral up and guard up every single turn. (25% for both effects) and recovers 1BP every turn as well

Skill 1 is a 1-3BP 4 LP Fast full party heal that cures all status effects.
Skill 2 4-6BP Slash/Heat Single target nuke
Skill 3 is a 10-13BP SSS power light/heat nuke

I can't remember if she had any longevity

>>
>>894835
You're kind of lucky, outside of some placebo stat buffs Apollo and Megami are the same as JP.
Kami however got some interesting changes.
Power Charge 3 has been powered up, so he now starts with 3BP and also gets back 1 BP when an attack lands, if this applies to his coin toss for chase that means he can get up to 3BP back which is big.
Skill 1 now debuffs LOV (Small)
Skill 2 now confuses.

So it's still more or less like JP, if you got Alkaiser then Megami's not super important as much as she's still a solid unit (and very important for her later style), Kami's a bit more interesting than JP if the new passive changes apply to any attack and not just the first one, but he's still kinda niche, Apollo's basically Iskandar for INT slash/heat but if you don't have his previous style for amplifying Masamune he's really crappy.
Pull or skip is up to you, guess the next banner will be LDS at this point.
>>
>>894956
And here I am hoping for buffs because the FFL styles are the most important ones that will be in 2022 for me.
That confuse buff on S2 is lovely to see; I've been using Saruin and Orlouge for confusion and while I like them, it's gonna be even better getting to use a fave like Creator (and at a lower BP cost and higher INT too!). The LOV debuff confuses and scares me a little. In what content would we ever need a LOV buff, let alone one that can be spammed every turn? I hope this doesn't mean a GLEX event battle is coming up that requires this.
God I'm gonna be sweating for weeks over these banners.

>>895107
afaik Orlouge "should" still have the higher chance to confuse. Though obviously if it came to single target confusion, nobody is as good at that job as Wicked Witch

The brand new White Rose competes with Matriarch 1, and Matriarch 4 is pointless, I'd say if you get her you can kind of disregard Matriarch 1 and stick with somebody like ND if you have her.
>>895331
By now I'm convinced Kawazu rolls dices for bust sizes every time a female character gets a style, they're wildly inconsistent not just with the canon but between different styles as well.
Halloween Cat having a J+ cup when she's canonically a C at best AND all of her other styles have smaller sizes than her halloween style was the most mindblowing shit ever.
Luckily So-Taro's an orthodox lolicon so Rei's safe from noncanon oppai lolification at least.

I wouldn't use Apollo like Iskandar, he's kind of the same role more or less, similar passives, similar rotations, but he lacks a big thing that Iskandar has, which is a Camphor Strike equivalent for self topping.
He does have a pretty decent self heal that also gives him Guard Up for a couple of turns, but
>1LP cost
That means Apollo is actually fucked if you try to use him like Iskandar, who can sit in the frontlines just fine because Camphor Strike gives him back some 800HP every turn and stays on indefinitely without any dead turn.
As an INT slasher he's not so hot either, Masamune+ is bangers but it's not a perfect rotation and he doesn't have a strong opening nuke like Golden Dragon+ either, when we look at INT slashers, nobody beats Oneesama.

Yeah, the first ND.
Good choice on those styles for suptix, between all those I'd say go for Megami if you have her concert style
>>
Redpill me on the Goddess banner
>>
>>896329
tl:dr;
Megami is a tanky ST INT attacker with an emergency heal like Alkaiser, except hers is Fast and can only be used once per fight.
Will get another style later on that is considered one of the very best support styles in the game, and will benefit from the aforementioned heal.

Apollo just doubles down on what the first Apollo does, except he's less tanky as the first style and is basically dead in the water if you don't have the first style to inherit Masamune+, if you do, he's basically a rough equivalent of Iskandar for INT slots, but Slash/Heat rather than Slash/Blunt, and with its own perks too since all those skills are indirect, meaning Apollo doesn't care about counter skills.
Last Apollo style to this day though.

Kami is again, doubling down on what Kami does best, that is INT based Sun+Random attribute AoE farming with coin tosses for chases, except this one Kami has TWO coin tosses for TWO chases, which leads to really fucking high T1 damage.
Since this Kami received pretty nice buffs he's better off than JP, where he was considered one of the better sun farmers, but GL has LOTS of Sun farmers by now, so chances are you don't really need him, especially since his coin tosses are highly unstable.
It's also the last Kami style to this day so just like Apollo, consider how much you'd need him.

Localization is kinda inconsistent, sometimes they keep the original names even though they're wrong (Emelia, notice how even the Frontier remaster uses Emilia), sometimes they retranslate them.
Apollo was also kept like that instead of using the correct version, which is Apollon, Sensei was now kept as Sensei instead of the original Mr.S from the old localized version, Esper Girl was also kept as it was in the original script instead of being called Mutant F.

Dammit, Black X on floor 280 could be my stopping point for now. I look up a clear and the guy has all three meta DEX debuffers on the same team: Bune 3, Witch's Daughter and GLEX Undine. I only have Undine. Though the main issue seems to be, unlike every other boss that debuff cleanses, he starts his attack routine with his debuff cleanse instead of doing it after, so he's fresh as a daisy to nail me with all those 4 digit damage aoes. He can't dispel my buffs like his minions the four emperors did though, so maybe I can stack END with Golden Baum or something. That's how I beat Metal Black with only one source of DEX debuffing.

Stream is live

TW stream later this month confirmed to be the next big preview of content, not much coming out of today's stream.
>>
The mobs on floor 291 are fucking insane. I might have to put Fempress on the team just to Imperial Shield turn 1. They outspeed and quad digit aoe on turn 1, shit's crazy.
>>
>>897509
when's later this month? There's only 6 days left in it. And I'm not sure if I want to go through WT now or not. Since there's no new fun stuff today. I was expecting either ITOKEN, GLEX, or Robin and got none of the above
>>
>>897570
No idea, that's just what they said. That there would be a TW stream later this month and that would have the bulk of RSRS upcoming content, the next preview "batch" so to speak.
I hope we get those three banners you were hoping for next, as I gotta save up something desperate.
Imperial Shield got me past 291, now I'm trying my luck vs Ludwig, Maximus and their minions on 295.

Guess I'll start pushing tower
Think I stopped at 213
Been pushing mob floors with this group
At the point that I'm getting outspeed consistently I'm taking out TL and putting in Fempress

Normally I wouldn't bother but AFAIK those accessories are GLEX
And I aims to have them
>>
>>897583
Best of luck dude. If I can do it without either of those witches, you got this.
>>
This clear of 295 was one of the closest fights ever. Mariah got pure barrier off before dying on Princess Lion, who started the round with 160 hp. She somehow ate two hits (must've been at single digit hp) and that was exactly enough to kill. If this didn't kill, I'd have lost. I really need to go grind this girl, she's amazing even at 1600 hp.
>>
They just dropped a hint at the very end of the stream: "Who else likes Katarina?"
Could she be the first one to get a second GLEX?

You misunderstand, the answer is Jackal GLEX because he sure did love Katarina
>>
>>897586
It's significantly easier than can be expected at this moment tbf.
If a wave can be paralyzed. Soul Freeze WILL work.
I might go fetch creator though just so I have a more reliable AOE confusion specialist
Actually I might just go in on that banner period because AoE sun attackers are welcome.
Though I'm obviously not going to splurge just this moment..

My cope has been moved to the TW stream whenever that happens this month.
>>
I should mention the stream was a RS3 stream and by popular vote Glacie was playiing Ellen's route, but she stopped near the end of the stream specifically so she could go show off the opening section of Katarina's route. Something's up.
>>897628
Nice. I should've used paralyze more, mostly relied on confusion and stun. Ludwig on 299 is a real jerk, I might have to go maximum turtle on this.

This is insane. The only clears of Ludwig on 299 I could find that I can replicate take 40+ minutes per successful attempt. Without Snowy, maximum turtling seems to be the only way, but it's so rng. Best I've done in the last hour is get him to 75%. I might not have the time in the day to dedicate this, but there's no way I wanna give up on the Proof just one floor above me!

I'll let you know what my strategy is when I get up there as I also don't have snowy

I did it. But by God that was a looooong battle. My last tango with the clown will have to wait until tomorrow, I'm spent for the day.

Got Kami and Goddess, extremely tempted to go for the hat version of Kami on that unlimited banner. Don't want to imagine what will happen when ITOKEN arrives or if we get another GLEX Katerina
>>
>>897839
A potential GLEX Kat has me sweating bullets. I hope IF and that's a big IF. IF they do her they run another suptix and/or rerun for the sacred petals style
IF and only IF it's required for that new style. Otherwise I'm gonna be a real sad fella.
>>
>>897841
If another GLEX Kat happens and it turns out to be a bridal Kat, then I will know without a doubt that there are Square Enix devs lurking in here since I posted a few threads back about willing to spend money for a GLEX bride Undine or Kat.
>>
>>897847
I'll spend money on anything as long as it's GLEX. They gave me GLEX Vampy and GLEX Azami and that was basically everything I wanted. That Barbara is as good as she is, is a nice bonus.

I don't actually have any other wants to be honest. Hmm
GLEX Sophia
GLEX Primiera

Though to be fair the changes to anni Sophia basically made her a GLEX. Albeit a rather bad one that I still used because I'm not turning my back on damage reduction.

Wew, looks like Igomahl on floor 300 is gonna require another extreme turtling strat with Tiger's Den (or Turtle's Den as I've started to call it). Gonna have to set aside a couple hours later today to give it a shot.
Here's what the special accessory does. I don't have it yet, but I can look at it on the floor 300 rewards menu.
>>
I'm looking at the JP banner list and I'm seeing a new Katarina banner just before the first Liam banner...maybe instead of a GLEX, we're getting another time-traveling banner? I'd welcome that, gives me time to save for more FFL.
>>
>>898143
Probably next month or august, it's hard to say considering GL's erratic pace and changes to schedule.
>>898176
I seriously hope that's not the case, if they move the Stage banners now when I'm completely broke I'm fucking done for, I can't afford skipping Byunei 4
>>
>>898177
I'm still kicking myself in the ass for skipping Byunei 3. Diving into the eventual rerun is going to ruin me
>>
>>898167
I took a break from climbing for most of today to farm ND up past 1500 hp. Just in case. I also dragged Ruby with me. Also just in case.

>20 to everything
Yep that's terrific. I can't remember the match to how far that goes but at the very least two characters I have would benefit greatly.
>>
>Floor 300 strats always have Matriarch 3
>I don't have that.
>At floor 210
I have the other four units at least, question is who can fill in the gap for M3? I still have one hell of a climb to make and I still have to work on Scarlet...
>>
>>898167
The tower is going to become permanent at one point right? Or should I just start coping with the fact I'm not going to get this accessory.
>>
For the floor bosses past 210 I notice some players debuff DEX, apparently the bosses start using DEX-based moves now or is there something else going on?
>>
>>898199
Same, Bune 3 is my biggest regret. If they do another paid pull for 15k medals with the next bottomless, I will straight up buy her if I don't have the 33k jewels to spare for that bottomless. The current one has everything from 1st anni to 1.5 anni, which means the next one should have styles from just after 1.5 anni (which would be Bune 3's banner) to the 2nd anniversary we're having now. It's gonna be an incredibly good banner for me to pull on as I did a lot of skips these past six months (and yet am still poor because holy shit I have to pity so often).
>>898201
>Just in case
Narwhal is practically my MVP. Outside of probably a single digit number of mob floors, she was on my team for every fight from 250 to 300. It's easy to grind her now as she has triple gains on Nacht's event; I think she has the highest stats of all my staff characters atm.
Really looking forward to this Halloween.
>>898224
Always pull for Mama. More seriously, I pulled her on release and never used her until this most recent World Tower to help on some boss floors past 250. This is pretty much all she seems good for. If you have Snowy, he might cover the WIL buffing you need. GLEX PWR can buff WIL as well. I don't think END buffing is as important as Igomahl seems to mostly use magic, but Golden Baum's a great END buffer and overall damage mitigator with Shrine Dance (which I keep forgetting lasts for 2 turns so I don't need to spam it).
>>898229
I don't know. This is the 4th time we've had it on global. I thought we were only gonna get it 3 times. Last time added floors 250 to 300. This time added an actual reward to clearing it instead of just jewels. It no longer has a place in the story so if they rerun it, it'd be like any other rerun event I suppose. An anon here once told me about all the future towers coming up, I really should've saved that post. You should start coping and if it helps, it's not gonna make or break your account.
>>
>>898241
Check the enemy skills. If they have a weapon icon that's not a fist, you're gonna want a DEX debuffer. Luckily, just one single target DEX debuffer should do (that's all I have). It's not like the damn SSG tower that wants aoe DEX debuffing. Though I managed to beat that without it just by putting both Golden Baum and GLEX PWR on the same team and it somehow worked.
>>
>>898241
You debuff DEX when it comes to non MA physical skills since that's what regulates their accuracy, AGI is for casters/martial arts as that's what regulates spell accuracy, AGI isn't a catchall debuff, you have to choose your debuffers accordingly which is why Byunei 4 is insanely valuable since she debuffs both AGI and DEX at the same time.
>>
>>898199
This banner was by far my peak luck, I got her, Forneus and Ferdinand with just 6000 jewels, after that it was all downhill
Sadly I don't her previous 2 styles
>>
>>898253
That's the thing, I have every other buffing unit and M1+2 so I hope the other units can cover her slot. I seem to miss some key units like M3 and Time Lord, and I missed out probably because I left the game in a small bout of frustration and returned during the beginning of the 2nd part of Ancient War.
I have plenty of debuffers at least, I need another Seeker's Cave and just start skill grinding like mad. Maybe the new prefecture units can work too, Skya looks like a nice support unit.

Oh THAT. That fucking fight. Five hours it took of various teams and attempts to win. Fuck, how did I do it again? I don't have Evelyn.
Oh right, it was this >>893572
I didn't grind out Hero's Amulet+, I think I just used whatever SS accessory gives resistance to all ailments, Gold Feather Charm iirc. Hero's Amulet is better, you can grind them from the final stage of Mirsa's tower. Surviving that first round's paralyze is the big deal.

Maybe they'll add even more floors in the future? To everyone else attempting the climb: good luck!

I ended up having to stop my climb to go raise Taria
I'm on 258 right now
I much prefer boss floors to be honest. They may take longer but I don't have to think nearly as much

Anyways ideally Taria will be finished by tomorrow and I'll be back climbing soon. She was missing with her petrify and there's two ways to really deal with that but I don't want to do either of them.

The good news is, mob floors disappear for a awhile once you get past floor 261. They don't become a regular thing again until 281 forward.
Though the mobs got so bad in the 290s, I ended up using what looked more like a boss team for them: Mama/ND/PWR/Macha/Final Empress. Goal being to buff Macha's INT and AGI for Rock Sting spam and rely on the other buffs plus Imperial Shield to last long enough until I had the mobs in a corner.

Wew, you were not kidding about Evelyn. I'm sooo glad she's not a tower boss.
Emboldened by my World Tower victory, I decided to go back and try the five most recent attacks, hoping I'd powercreep them. I did, but damn Evelyn was giving me trouble on Challenge 3, not even Romancing. That is, until I put my gal Monika on the team and then she was easy and didn't give me aids even once. Very glad to get to put Monika to work on some hard content. Just have Tu Kwai left, shouldn't be too bad. I might even be able to beat Wasteland War for another thousand jewels.
>>
>>898868
I wonder how good Ginny will be at debuffing when I max out her two skills, I know enemies lover to counter direct attacks, at least her debuffs are large, and she can fire them off every other turn with her support skill. Apparently Dahao SS had a double debuff of AGI and CEX, have you guys been able to clear out the content without Dahao/Witch's Daughter?
>>
>>898903
I thought about raising Ginny real quick but I haven't gotten around to it. I have all of her styles but somehow I never got around to it.
>>
>>898903
>have you guys been able to clear out the content without Dahao/Witch's Daughter?
I've been able to do all 200 floors of the SSG tower and all 300 floors of World Tower along with, just now, all the Attacks, and the main meta styles I seem to be missing when I look at other clear videos are
>Dahao/Witch's Daughter
>Bune 3
>Evelyn/Wicked Witch
>Snowy
It's possible to beat all that without any of those, so long as you have other things.
But man, I really, really wish I had those styles. I'm trying Wastelands War (Bertrand) 5 and I die to the mobs on wave 2 of 10. I don't think I can beat this without a source of aoe DEX debuffing. The only source of DEX debuffs I have is my #1 girl Undine's Chill; man she has been putting in a lot of work lately.
>>
>>898690
I regret my bemoaning. I've been slowly beating every single boss to death via evasion memes
>>
Got to F180 on the SSG tower, need to build up daughter so I can have a 3rd AGI debuffer unit because the bug is starting to filter me. I have over 2 days to get her and some other unites almost ready, hopefully the HP ticks are generous as I grind in the sauna.
>>
the worm in ssg 191 is wrecking me , what does this guy needs, dex debuff?i cannot seem able to resist him for longer than 3 or 4 turns, shits tough
>>
>>899053
Yeah...that's why I said "the good news" but didn't mention the bad. I did the same thing.
>>899071
That's the big hurdle, you need DEX debuff for that floor. Somehow I won without aoe DEX debuffing, just Undine focusing her debuff on the boss while Golden Baum and GLEX PWR buffed my END and WIL to the sky.
>>
so should I use "balanced" formation when farming conquest ? Because when I used a focus-on-one-person formation the enemy hit much harder.

I'm this anon, finally reached 40k+ party after a busy week, now I'll be able to play more (only at 7-2-1 in the story at the moment, have to keep playing and reached 80k jewels right now).

Thanks for helping me, anon(s). You made me discover this gacha again and why I loved it.

>>899880
If you have equipment medals you can get one SS G. Sword with sun element in the exchange shop but from what I heard the crafting system they will implement soon turns most SS weapons pointless
>>
>>899584
Yeah it was Bune's first form. Everything else is just getting fucked up now with little to no effort
The strength of some of these things is so lopsided
>>
>>899883
Ouch, then I should just keep farming stats and then go for armor while I wait for that crafting system? Because if the SS weapons wont be that good I can save the medals just in case.
>>
>>899333
At least the tower is open for another month. I have about 2 days left until SSG tower closes up and I'm at floor 180. I'll try RF with Virgil and reduce AGI this time.

>>899880
You're very welcome, glad you're having fun!
>>899889
So I take it you made it past her? Her first form's main issues iirc are being weirdly hard to debuff for the first few rounds compared to other bosses and her constant counter stance.
>>
>>899911
Virgil does it again, saved me a lot of grief and managed to send out a lout of fireworks to boot too! Going through floors 181~190 was an easy coast, and now I am left with the boss rush. I'll have to train Mariah's Acupuncture since I need another STR debuffer for one of the fights. Mama's S-rank style Maiden was an event only deal, right? I don't have that.

So how does the Data Transfer feature work?
My old phone is dying and I got a new one today, do I have to reselect the server and link the data after that? Kinda worried about fucking something up as the procedure isn't explained all that well.
>>
>>900569
If your account is linked to one of the options then you can login via that account from any device
t. went through the same thing as you
>>
>>900609
So after setting up the server I just start the game as usual from the main screen and I get automatically linked to my account?
>>
>>900366
Good luck!
>>900440
Nice, you're almost there!
>>900569
Yeah, I worry about this every time I have to do it. First, make sure you went into the options on your old phone and linked with a service (I think the options are Google Play Games and Facebook iirc, I went with the former).
Then, install the game on your device. Tap the title screen when it pops up, it'll ask you to select a server. Go with whatever server your old account was on (not sure how important this part is desu, I've never tried switching servers). The title screen will refresh, there should be a data link button at the bottom. Tap that and you should be able to data transfer so long as your new device has whatever account your game is linked to set as the account you're using on it too (so same Google Play Games or Facebook account is active on the new device). Then you should have to download a bunch of data and once that's done, it'll load into your game.
>>
>>900614
So I have to press the Data Link button on the new phone too?
I thought that would override the data from the old phone by reading what the message says, does the download go automatically on game startup? I don't see any option about it on the main screen.
Sorry about that but after two years I'm kinda worried about losing everything.
>>
>>900620
Yes, it's very misleading and scary, but that how it goes. Well wait, the Data Link button is what you press on your new phone.
First, on your old phone, get into your actual game where you're looking at people walk around in Vanguard.
Then hit Menu on the upper right. Then hit the Data Link button on that Menu screen. This is all on your old phone, which I hope works enough to do this or you've already done it in the past. It'll ask you to link a service. Pick one, then the link will be established (you've probably already done this).
Then on the new phone, with a fresh install and having already logged into the service you linked with on this new device using the same account for that service, you tap Data Link at the bottom of the title screen as soon as it pops up. It'll ask you once again to link a service, this is the poorly-worded part. Tap the same service and what it actually means is that it will transfer over data if it finds any game data already linked to that service via the same account you're logged into on that device.
If you don't see the Data Link button on the title screen, tap the title screen and it should give the server select screen, then take you back to the title screen but with the Data Link button on it now.
>>
>>900620
Oh, and if you can, take a screenshot of your player information screen on your old phone before you data transfer in case something fucks up. That'll help support get your account back if something goes truly wrong.
And also note that once you transfer, you won't be able to play the game on your old device unless you first uninstall it then reinstall and transfer back to it. This game only lets you play on one device at a time.
>>
>>900626
Okay, many thanks for the help anon, new phone says it linked my data, so it should be fine, I hope.
Is it normal to not see my player ID on the starting screen? Does it update when I actually log into the game?
>>
>>900630
You're welcome and yeah, it's normal not to see your ID on the title screen. Yet another misleading part of this process that makes it seem scary. If the fresh install on the new phone said it linked your data after you tapped Data Link, then hit the title screen and wait for a big data download prompt. Then sit back, nervously relax and wait for that data to download and it should bring up your familiar home screen automatically after the download completes. Prepare to be annoyed as you will have to sit through various features like Hidden Dojo and Robin Cup unlocking again, and grinding will sometimes be halted as the first instance tutorial messages will pop up again the first time you spark a skill or rank up a skill or combo during combat, etc. Also, any paid jewels will only transfer if you're going from an Android device to another Android device or Apple to Apple. If it's Android to Apple or vice versa, they'll stay on your old device. Free jewels will carry over though.

>>900613
Kinda. After you pick server a button'll show up in the bottom right.

>Nice, you're almost there!
Ludwig might be my limit
None of my SBL users are even remotely leveled or uncapped for the fight besides Leon (who doesn't seem good enough) and I can't outspeed his big deeps using the other method.

I was hoping matriarch alone could handle soul freeze but she's not good enough by herself and neither is pumpkin PWR if by herself. Gotta use a combination of two of either mat/pwr/ND.
I'm currently spending a tiny amount of time weighing a hell of a lot of strategies
in order to figure out one that'll let me weasel my way to victory with what I've got leveled

I could try out Shen Du but he's not trained and I only have enough uncap materials for the 3 (potential) Glex we'll probably (not) get for the stream on the 30th.

I saw a cheeky Mystic Asellus strat that I think I can appreciate but my Ginny (which is the cornerstone of that strat) is the furthest thing away from being a developed character.

Also my Mat is taking like 1k in Den from mortal darkweb despite being a developed character despite having like 46 dark resist and I don't know what to do to fix that mess. I thought it was directly related to "Will" but Vampy takes like 1400 and she's got like 96 dark resist. Meanwhile Emelia doesn't feel a thing.

Well, at least you have over a month to grind with some new stat caps on the way too. Dark resist is good for Ludwig but you'll also want a lot of slash resist. When the last 50 floors got added, a lot of people got stuck on 299. Do yo have the styles I used here >>897715? Leon might be able to sub for Mirsa, though it'll make the fight even longer as he does less damage. Being immune to dark damage really helped too, though if the other four managed to survive, whoever you use in place of Mirsa should be able to live too. Sounds like grinding is the way to go.

Oh, one more thing about Ludwig that you've probably already figured out: he follows a script. Those big aoe fuck you turns with Crescent Slash/Rolling Slash + Demise happen at set intervals and at certain intervals he will tack a Mortal Darkweb onto the end of the turn (after removing debuffs for an extra fuck you) he does those aoes. I never figured out the exact pattern, which is why it could be useful to have a clear video open while you do it so you can "preview" what the next turn will be.
>>900682

I give up, that fucking worm is too cheap.

Made a team with glex empress, glex undine, Baum chan, matriarch and byunei, tried to stuff him with dex debuffs but he never misses
>>
>>900694
Do you have GLEX White Rose? If you do, you can try >>892376. Rapid Stream sounds unintuitive for a defensive team, but stacking buffs made me eventually does everything. I think the only debuffing I did was casting Chill on the big worm every turn. Matriarch spammed PoV, White Rose normal attacked and used her s3 (PPP) whenever it was up, Narwhal did the same with Water Festival and Baum used Shrine Dance and then once I started dodging she used Have Some More to top off my hp plus it hits weakness for more damage.
>>

Oh, that's actually a way better strat than the cheeky one I saw. Probably going to cause a gazillion resets

I'm halfway tempted to wait and see what the banner after reset is as depending on what it is, I'll probably be walking into 300 with a more... themed team. Still a bit sad we didn't get a GLEX Ludwig

I'll admit, this is mighty fucking cheeky

This is cheekier then the cheekiest romancing I've done. I went a bit different and used Imperial shield 2 times back to back for turns 3 and 4 to improve stability and inherited Moon Flash (or V-impact if you're feeling lucky for your NDs +1 BP improved loops)
All you have to do is get moderately lucky with the counters and the fight plays itself.

What a silly thing.
Also there's only one accessory? For some reason I thought there were two. Whatever. I'm 100% going to hold off on 300 though so I can run a themed attrition team dependent on what the next banner is.
>>
>>900960
That's more or less the same approach I used for Romancing GLEX Ludwig, not surprised.
To be fair Asura's Wrath being a critical against humans makes Mystic Asellus really valuable in a lot of boss content, she's really good in the Tu Kwai/Bertrand attacks for that reason because she can do a lot of critical damage while being relatively safe.
>>
>>901508
I did end up using her for Tu Kwai Challenge 3 but benched her for Forneus for Romancing 'cause she resists Asellus' counter, making it only do 20k damage while she's weak to Forneus'.
>>901371
Nice! Congrats on making it to 300, it's not as bad as 299. Whatever theme you go with, you'll want to focus on WIL buffing and dark resist. Igomahl doesn't have any big fuck you attacks, unlike Ludwig who had three or four.
>>
I wonder how much paralyze resist he gave his units for this strat. Surprised he used Jo but it worked out, maybe the constant INT debuff works as he cleanses debuffs every turn. I'll have to set the stones on the amulets and I can try to finish it before it closes when I get back from work. Maybe mix it up with Christmas Rei or Saruin if he manages to get the stats from the auto-farm I setup.

Honestly at this point it could be either the LDS banner, Robin family banner or even Itoken's banner, it's hard to say because they're not following the JP release order, there's also the possibility of a surprise GLEX banner.
Even the spiral update came later than it did in JP this time around so whatever they will pull tomorrow is anyone's guess

Fucking Sigfrei blueballed my progress until the paralysis and poison hit. Even then he stalled me to prevent full completion, got up to 198 and didn't have enough time. Hopefully there wasn't anything special at floor 200 because World Tower is next. I'll say this: most of the boss fights in SSG were too debuff dependent. Sigfrei would be a fun fight if it weren't for the extreme damage and limited ways to heal.

>Rainbow Rangers (best overall, good for farming)
>Rapid Stream (AGI strats in high difficulty content)
>Tiger's Den (turtling strats in rare high difficulty content where Rapid Stream doesn't work)
>Anima Stream (good for mage teams)
>Amazon Raid EX (good for STR teams)
>Deadly Pierce EX (good for DEX teams)
>Desert Lance EX (good for counter strats)

Honest opinions
>Therese
Therese is outrageously tanky for a bow slot unit and both rapid fire and double phoenix arrow dip twice on her breath of invigoration I
On top of the fact that she gets Very Large defense boost per turn (Should be 30% less damage) and a big dex buff.
Means her Rapid fire is actually 6 BP and Double Phoenix Arrow is actually 7 BP. In a Paen of Peace strat she's damn close to invulnerable.

Double Phoenix Arrow dunks on her Dex though but I'm fairly certain nobody else is getting fire damage that high on a loop like that. Phoenix Arrow is a 38 so presumably double is 76. Goes off on turn 1 and 3. Debuffs dex each use.

>Kat
Katarina has what looks to be a 50% chance to chase any skill with watermeon cut, great END and Wil values, and our first Defense Down (should be 10-15% defense down).
Aside from her stupidly high defensive sturdiness, she has access to every single inherit from previous styles of which there are a lot.
Welfare SS gives her a 6 BP C power aoe she can loop 3 turns in a row (gleaming way it is not, but it's there)
Moulin Rouge probably triggers on both hits making the highest theoretical damage 74 or SSSS power. not bad all things considered.
Basically she's 'not dying' harder than Therese either. Takes 50% less damage.

>Emerald
Emerald, is a bit easier to understand. Starts agi dodging earlier against single target thanks to skill 3 -> 30%-22.5 -> -45% where it then plateaus. Single target better left to other people.
Where she shines is groups or aoe direct attacks. Guarantee counters with firestorm + which nukes AGI.
Can't be understated how stupidly good that can be.
Takes 25% less damage.

They're not game changers outside of maybe Emerald who absolutely stomps on m.arts monsters and mixed parties with casters. Kat's defense down can potentially let you do some cheeky bullshit when combined with GLEX Barbara.

Should also add that ITOKEN getting Ironwall VI (50% less damage) long term expands his use.
>>
>>902524
Have the styles from the ITOKEN banner changed as well? I managed to get all but him in 8 rolls. I pray to the gods I don't have tp pity.

>>902524

>>902484

>>
>>902529
think they added a str down to lobsters skill 2. You wouldn't be landing that shit on anything that matters but it's not all that bad after a few buffs with his 80% int mod. Valdor skill 2 heals himself. Real prize is still taking Vortex Breaker from his last style and slapping it onto this one for a turn 2 SS power Aoe.

Anyways, net wise we're almost there. Status effects aside, we only need one really good character that inflicts defense down and the GLEX units we've gotten, a good chunk of which are all survival specialists, will enable more types of cheeky attrition strats.

>>902484
The GLEX are all good to great
Let's do the usual breakdown one by one
>Emerald
Probably the most interesting style in this banner, GLEX Emerald is a mixed defensive support style that is kind of unique as it has lots of different tools, it's a deceivingly complex toolkit.
Let's start off with her first passive, it's an automatic counter that makes her fire off Firestorm+, this is amazing for three different reasons.
1) Firestorm + is a C power Heat AoE, nobody in the game has anything like this, the closest will be Plat Human M which uses UDX Human M Skill 2, but that's a Blunt+Slash attack
2) Much like Human M, this is an invaluable tool for stopping any boss who loves to chain multiple direct attack together, this will stop any chain dead on, for free, even if the attack doesn't connect with Emerald and she dodges
3) Firestorm+ debuffs AGI, shouldn't need to explain why this is extremely valuable
Her second passive is Apollo's passive more or less, coupled with 70%END means Emerald can actually be kinda tanky, especially for a caster, again, very valuable.

Skill wise you have Beach Cocktail+, Summer Ellen's skill, except this one lasts for 2 rounds, which is really great on manual as Emerald can give steroids to other people in the party at zero BP and build up for her Skill 3.
Skill 3 is basically a Heat+Sun, INT based Double Crash, which while not being super up to date as a nuke it still hits really thanks to Emerald's stats and passives AND keeps debuffing AGI, not to mention it only costs 8BP.
Inheritance wise you have other options to add versatility, such as Scorch for ST Instakill, Fireball+ or Fire Whip+ for ST heat and paralysis.

This Emerald's only weakness is lack of options for Auto patterns her rotations just aren't great on auto even if she buffs her INT with melee attacks, still it's a 9/10 easily, much better style than the Sapphire summer JP welfare.

>>902561
>Katarina
As usual with GLEX styles, this is a style geared for future content of turtling battles of attrition.
Passive one is a large chance to chase with Watermelon Cut, which regens a good portion of HP even if it misses, considering this GLEX Kat can stack TWO HP regen effects with her skill 1 it is ridiculously strong as an option even if it's a dice roll, this means that Kat can potentially top herself off whenever she wants.
To this you add Ironwall Defense VI and the result is an extremely tanky style.
Crashing Wave Flash is a Row skill that inflicts Defense Down, but it's honestly not the most important part of this style, the best part of this style is being able to inherit the Alarm! skill from her old style in the Hilda banner so you can chase twice with Moulin Rouge AND watermelon cut for pretty massive damage on a 7>0>7 rotation, she's basically a less tanky but more offensive version of the recent Iskandar style, which is really, really good as Iskandar himself can currently fucking shred a lot of content on his own really easily, but lacks the DPS peaks of this GLEX Kat in exchange for being a bit more stable in performance and having better WIL capacity thanks to the stacking self buffs.
Overall another easy 9/10 with a bright future ahead, maybe 8/10 if you want to bitch about the inconsistent nature of dice rolls for Watermelon Cut but rest assured this is a very strong style for bossing even if it kinda sucks for farming.
>>

>>902570
>Therese
Therese keeps being the only bow user who boldly dares to put up some resistence against Claudia supremacists.
Unlike the other two styles Therese is refreshingly straightforward, all she wants is damage and self sustain+buffing.
She has an effective 4BP rotation with a very small HP regen thanks to her passive 1, this alone puts her above the vast majority of bow users.
She has an Apollo equivalent for DEX stacking but with a VERY large defense boost, this is fantastic because again, it's geared for future content when you need people to have defensive capabilities.
Skill wise Solar Arrow+ helps DEX stacking on rotations and also covers Sun if you need it, with it Therese recovers 2BP every round she uses that.
Rapid Fire is a decent Row skill with dual coverage, and again, stacks DEX buffs even furthere.
Even more ridiculous is skill 3 which is Double Dark Blade for Pierce+Heat, but at 9BP, AND with more DEX stacking and a free heal, this is pretty much the best DPS skill any bow user can have right now, forget about Claudia entirely because Therese isn't taking it Thereasy anymore and she means business.

So yeah, pretty simple kit but tremendously effective for Pierce+Heat DPS on a DEX spot, considering bow users have the innate advantage of not caring about counters either, this means Therese is also pretty damn good.

Swung up and got Ventus, Laura, and Ruby (but Iskandar didn't come home and I'm not going 90 more pulls for him)
Skipping Nacht banner
Swung by and got Itoken

I have... A very foreboding feeling about the rest of this month. Which is why I'm skipping the Nacht banner. I'll get them all in a suptix at some point in the far future.
I'm probably not done with ITOKEN's banner. I have a feeling that Minstrel is going to be important at some point. Call it a hunch.

>>902600
ITOKEN is alright. Not exactly mat though. No AGI buff on his 5 BP STR suite. No WIL buff for attrition teams. I can see many places I'd use him though.
>>
>>902600
He's a super party support with free party heals, party BP regen and comprehensive buffs, that alone makes him a valuable unit, especially now that he's tankier in GL.
He makes or breaks Club Simulations due to all the aforementioned stuff, once you'll get to that you'll see why he's so valuable.

Aw fuck, I triggered the monkey's paw. I'm the FFLfag who's nervous about Haniwa/Final Defense System and the other two FFL banners coming up nextish. My prayers were answered and we got ITOKEN instead, so I can flush my chance at hammer simulation down the drain and skip to recover my jewels...but then they drop a triple GLEX summer swimsuit banner on us at the same time, just like last year. Last year's summer GLEX banner was my 2nd biggest disaster, having to go to a double pity dumping 90k on a banner only to get GLEX Elisabeth a zillion times with no Asellus or Roc. I'm nervous about testing my luck again, especially with only 40k.
The new GLEX styles seemed tuned for future content, but I'm hesitant because I already have what I need for all current content. They don't seem to shake things up or add much that's new other than being tankier. And perhaps worst of all, I had to skip the Katarina/Hilda banner so I don't have access to Alarm. It's Final Emperor all over again. I skipped GLEX Final Emperor because I skipped Termite Emperor. I never ended up needing Final Emperor for anything, but it still kinda stings.
I don't know what to do. My brain says skip both banners to ensure I have enough for my FFL stuff, the most important thing in the game for me, but my heart says I can try to pull on the GLEX banner and the Taiwan stream said nothing about FFL at all; it even mentioned a summer event going from July 6th to 20th, so there's no sign of FFL until end of July/start of August.
Fuck, but I do like Therese and have always kept her stat capped.

>>
>>902796
>The hell is hammer simulation?
That is a small question with a large answer that can't be fit in 4chan's word limit but I'll try to tl;dr.
Coming soon to global (who knows when), the next big mode will be added. In it, you must fight a boss that's weak to every damage type using teams made up only of styles using the same weapon (so there's sword simulation battles, greatsword simulation battles, hammer, etc). Future pulls and banners will be built around rounding out your roster based on weapon type and roles within that weapon type rather than elements or general roles like a tank, because now you can only bring your main tank to one of 10 versions of the boss fight.
Why do people care about simulation battles? They're the only way to get the materials to upgrade the new weapons, which will be the strongest weapons in the game. So the goal is to beat the boss with as many weapon themed teams as possible and then it'll reset monthly so you can get those upgrade mats all over again.
I've recently learned by studying the upcoming simulation bosses that having a solid team of a certain weapon type won't be enough; you need to cover a specific role with each boss. Termite Queen requires you to have someone who can paralyze. It doesn't matter who or if they're good at paralyzing; on the turn you need to do it, she debuffs her own WIL and paralyze resistance so much it's guaranteed. For Kzinssie you need a stun. And for Death Master you will need row/column nukes (like what the new GLEX Katarina is showing off hint hint).

Anyway, ITOKEN is *the* god tier support for a hammer team so if you have him you should be okay for hammer simulation battles. If you don't, like me, well, idk if you're fucked but it's gonna be a lot harder. Other than simulation battles, he doesn't seem worth it if you already have Matriarch plus GLEX PWR.

Therese, you are finally stronger than Claudia but I gotta skip. I am so, so, sorry.

Even though the limited time expedition is available now, it's not until 2 days from now that the expedition will actually drop Concert Programs and at the same time an exchange will open where you can grab a new SS weapon and some other things.

Kat's in the 1600s for hp, I really did neglect her for a while. 1100s for Emerald, it's gonna take all week to get her up to snuff even with 4x gains. I think the last time I used Emerald was for clearing the very first Spiral Corridor back at launch. Had to deal with those annoying green-hair whirlwind fairies that were only weak to heat. Really happy to see her come so far.

I have no idea how to beat Summer Showdown 3 on VH.
There's no counter tactic that works, Golden Lion saved me on the previous stage but in this one it's a challenge to get Hannibal and Claudia down inbetween the absurd DPS, paralysis rolls and Final Empress healing any them, not to mention most of the stuff they use is indirect so it doesn't really trigger anything, Laura is useless because all of them are resistant to Pierce so her OP counter deflect is pointless, Forneus is the worst of the bunch.
Debuffs don't stick, it's a miracle if I can even get Byunei to hit them at all, besides they almost always kill me before I can even start buffing and debuffing.
Turtling in Tiger Den lets me kill Hannibal or Final Empress but then Silver goes apeshit with her AoE, Claudia inevitably paralyzes one or two people and I can't do anything about it.
Plat Human M would be great to have here but of course, he's not around for this, I'm really at a loss here, even Iskandar can't survive the onslaught and if Hannibal gets buffed by Final Empress he's somehow able to kill him too, or put him in the red.
>>
Feels like these enemies on stage 20 of ITOKEN's event are kinda tanky; I'm doing less damage than I expected.
>>903127
Damn, this stuff sounds scary. And isn't there an Ultra Hard beyond that? I don't think I'll try this until next week. Does it seem to be built around using Emerald as the counter tank? I usually rely on Forneus but you're saying he's shit here, but I did pull Emerald.
>>
>>903135
Yeah sorry, I meant Ultra Hard, I'm a bit mind broken
>Does it seem to be built around using Emerald as the counter tank?
Don't think so, no, she doesn't really make sense in this scenario, a nearly capped Forneus can't hit for more than 19K on Maelstrom counters, Emerald will struggle to reach 10K on a C power counter.
Shit's wild.
>>
>>902907
GLEX events are always much harder maybe because they are compensating all the buffs or maybe because Akatsuki designs them with the current JP meta in mind
>>
>>903145
It's both really, but they might have gone a bit overboard for UH this time around, unless there's some secret puzzle piece I'm missing or it's meant to be a World Tower 290-300 RNG shitfest deal
>>
>>903150
That's what it feels like. I managed to beat UH 1 but even with Fempress, Lolislime and Tiger's Den I can barely reduce the amount of damage they shit out.
>>
>>903153
in UH2*.
>>
>>903153
Speaking of
Is there ever going to be another unit with good defense, hp recovery, and a team wide damage reduction?
I like Lolislime but she's not exactly sustaining herself for 0 LP cost.
>>
>>903157
No.
Her next style also loses the passive END buildup in favor of a skill based one.
Generally speaking the future defensive meta will be less about stacking buffs and more about abusing party wide heals, dedicated cover styles like Mask and LP-less sources of party healing between skills and passives.
>>
>>903174
Nta but are we going to get passives that heal more than the itty bitty amounts they do now? I'm looking at Macha's for example, and how it has a chance to heal a bit over 100 hp every turn.
>>
>>903197
Yes and no, Very Small heals are still your mainstay and the trick will be stacking as many layers of them as possible, but there's also some more powerful heals available in the form of certain passives like OD heal passives, though GL already has something similar in the form of the Still Blade: Light buffs.
Another reason why people considering styles like Itoken or Macha top tier is precisely because they can stack those Very Small heals on top of other people's and do it consistently too, which will be very, very important later on.
>>
>>903174
I can dig lp less sources of healing but I was more talking about her shrine dance for guard up 50%. Having one more unit to stack a sick guard up who also doesn't have to worry about dying would be neat.
I know Xmas Fempress eventually gets that cut that'll let her heal the party every turn which'll be a nice steady stream of 370s/ish. And even without it will still be 180ish HP a turn. Which I could potentially use later.

Anyways ITOKENs s3 change make him more valuable in attrition strats than potentially Mat 2 and 3. Where as they heal 360/ish each turn when Paen of peace gets going and has 2 on demand heals, Itoken raw takes 40% less damage now. The only problem is ailments. An 84% Wil Mod isn't stopping him from eating shit to clowns soul freeze, for example so his S2 literally doesn't matter.

Status ailments be the big mind killer right now when it comes to me thinking of weenie strats to run. Fempress alone even with 4 stacks of peace can't 100% negate ailments on some fights. Needs either ND (who has no sustain) or PWR (who has slow sustain)

Still feels like there's a peace of the puzzle missing. Fempress with watermelon cut, GLEX Kat #2, GLEX Therese. All pretty damn stout survival specialist. But to get serious about the kind of formation that I want, need one more source of team damage reduction on a character who won't slowly die over a long fight.
Else the later two of that list get replaced with the more generally useful very small healers who when put together will be able to sustain themselves.
>>
>>903205
>stacking
Ah, that's a very good point. I usually only have 1 of those on a team if that, but if I had 3 or 4 that'd be bretty gud.

Of one of the few videos on youtube for the UH2 quest, they run FOUR buffers. Narwhal, Matriach, White Genryu, Shen du, and Dahao for her initial DEX/AGI debuff in Rapid Stream.

Either buffs or debuffs, pretty sure those are buffs. You can long press on a character to see what effects they're currently under. It's useful for keeping track of buffs that last multiple turns, like Golden Baum's 2 turn large guard up from Shrine Dance that won't overlap/stack with her 2 turn mediium guard up from Kiai.

But like I explained earlier I'm pretty sure there's still a piece of this puzzle missing. Just one more tanky unit that also comes with damage reduction for the team and some self sustain and we've have a real party of self sufficient badasses.
No clue what I'm doing for #5 though. Most of it's going to depend on how fast I can brute force through Emerald.

I could also just go maximum cheek and see if GLEX Claudia is even capable of lasting long enough to overdrive once.

New player here.
I probably did a dumb thing and rolled on reprint banner a bit too much, and now I have 30k coins.
First half went to FEmpress and rolling on the banner gave me mirsa, both kinds of pwr and apollo.
What do I get with other 15k coins? From reading this and previous threads I gather that Roc and xmas slime are rather good, but while I get the point of slime I'm a bit lost about Roc.
>>
>>904109
GLEX Roc is good because she has crazy passives and a crazy skill set.
Skill 1 can stun and costs 0BP
Skill 2 adds heat to her repertoire and also gives 1BP to the whole part.
Skill 3 is one of the craziest nukes in the game and completely tanks enemy INT too.
She's just insanely good and high value for future styles too.
But if you want a qrd on the other worthwhile styles from that banner:

>Summer Asellus
Still the best INT debuffer in the game if you have Mirage Step from the previous limited style.
>Thomas
Has a Skill 3 that is potentially very strong but there's still no new Thomas that can use it, this is the last Thomas style to date too.
>Sarah
Good for inheriting Healing Arrow to her later styles
>Human M
Can inherit Pulse Cannon to his future Plat style
>Human F
Still a very reliable martial art style to this day, but she's gonna be surpassed by her future UDX and has no relevant inheritance material
>Speedwagon
Gives Repent!! to the current on banner Kami so he can reach his max farming potential, the other Kami style is pointless though
>Dad
Vital for Mask in the future so he can pass Grand Adventure
>Glex Leon
Kind of lost his relevance with the coming of UDX Gerard, but still solid and a very good support/farming style
>Glex Emps
Still the best all around STR slasher for both farming and bossing, can give lots of good stuff to his future styles
>Halloween Cat
All of her skills are good for inheritance
>Forneus
Good mass counter tank though his days are numbered
>Glex Mikhail
Extremely good DEX piercer for bossing, can give good stuff to the future mikhail as well
>Glex Coppelia
Punishing Combo and Mirage Kick are good inheritance options for future styles
>Glex Minerva
extremely good inheritance option for her future style
>Dora
Still great T1 farmer for AGI slots, but still no future styles so far
>Christmas Mesarthim
Can give her skill 2 to her future style
>Christmas Rei
Extremely competent status inflictor with good inheritance options
>>
>>904120
>Glex Urpina
Really strong farming style for T1, her skill 3 is good inheritance material
>Glex Sasha
Very strong healer, one of the best in business, but no future styles hurt her
>NY Minstrel
Will be useful for early club simulation, or you can just forget that and wait for SaGa concert Minstrel to come around
>NY Aldora
Weird but surprisingly still competent heat/slash caster that can make good use of Polka's sword, also has zombie heals
>Sherah
amazing Dark caster with plenty of debuff options, a Fast with Stun and great firepower all in all, vital for her future style

The other OCs are mostly not worth it since their lifetime is over by now and won't get future styles, Madeleine is a very strong, but very risky STR slash/lightning DPS, she's probably the best of the bunch, the current on banner Valdor is better than this other Valdor even though he could benefit from Ki Meditation if you need a heal right there, right now, and [A mother's flowing love] Liz is a competent Cold nuker in a niche that has very little competiton, the rest you can completely disregard as they have either no value at all by now or very dubious value (I'd make a case for Glex Leonard for instance but it's a really weak one)
>>
>>904120
>>904122
Thanks for the long answer, anon.
I have some of those, but as I guessed it pretty much comes down to choice between Roc and Baum.
Don't have the last Asellus, sadly, so no inherits for the summer one. How important are her inherits down the line, anyways?
>>
>>904190
>How important are her inherits down the line, anyways?
Depends entirely on who we're talking about.
Forneus or Aunus?
Neither really gets much from their previous styles, if anything at all.
Byunei or Alloces?
They almost always come with self sufficient packages but can get more versatility through inherits.
Final Empress?
Most of her value is in mixing and matching tools from her previous styles.
Apollo?
His current style is mediocre at best without his previous UDX so he gets to loop Masamune+ or switch to full AoE duty with Meteor Shower through inheritance.
The current Valdor or Boston in ITOKEN's banner?
Neither gets better by inheriting anything from their previous styles, they're complete and self sufficient packages.

Some characters in particular, like again Final Empress, are typed as "collectible" types that are more reliant on inheritance from the previous styles to work at peak performance, other characters like Apollo or Kami are fully reliant on their previous styles, while some other characters like Neidhart or Jamil on the other hand often come with self sufficient kits, there's also the case of characters who don't get new styles for a long while so when they get updated they're 99% not reliant on their previous styles at all, see the recent Summer Professor in JP for instance.
So in short, inheritance is, GENERALLY SPEAKING, very good value, but it's something that doesn't really follow strict rules and you can live without in most cases.

man, I'm dumb. I brought Creator to stop Fempress' crazy healing, but forgot to bring an INT buffer so he never landed a debuff and missed most of his spells. Basically did this with 4 party members but whatevs, wasn't nearly as bad as I expected. UH1 went down on the first try to Forneus, UH2 went down on the first try to my Ludwig team and UH3 went down on the first try with this Creator team (my "better" team ideas failed, hilariously enough).
I think I'll keep UH4 and UH5 for another day.
>>
>>904387
I was praying for some miracle that the dev would change the auto mechanism for him.
>>
>>904400
Kind of copied your Kami strat with a slightly different team and I must say, he was pretty damn effective, when he started actually getting those damn coin flip that is, and that took quite a few reloads, thanks to the GL buffs he's hell of a lot more reliable than he's in JP for bossing, getting 1BP back for each attack is really noteworthy.
UH4 was pretty similar except I put GLEX Annie as bait, took a couple of retries for the usual dice rolls but seems like counterfishing with GLEX Annie+Parry inherit is a really good strategy if you're lucky with RNG.
Tomorrow I'll try UH5.
>>904407
There's nothing to change, he has a single attack skill, support skills and stances never go off on auto, ITOKEN's a fully manual support bot
>>
>>904474
Glad I could help, good job! I think I'm going to try using my Prefecture Emelia for the first time on UH4 (I don't have Annie) as I want someone who can heal and do blunt.
For UH5, I'm kinda stumped. Emerald's counters are a real pain in the ass, I need to find some sort of turtling team that doesn't use direct attacks. Might sticke with Emmie.

I used GLEX Barbara, Alkaiser (with punishing fist inherited), GLEX Coppelia, GLEX Fempress, and Macha

Turn 1, Fempress walls, Punishing fist for top and bottom, Macha uses 3 BP
Turn 2, Macha uses fast, Coppelia ODs, top (or bottom if you'd like) are now dead
Can't remember if final crusade is turn 4 or 5. Anyways you give Coppelia ki blast so she can kill Vampy earlier and OD Baum out of existence.

>Vampy has vampire link and can randomly heal herself and some other guy unless a Deflect happens
So THAT'S why she's been healing! I thought it was her Marine Bat move but then it didn't always heal. And I didn't get why other people occasionally healed. It all makes sense now.
I almost had it with an Asellus Desert Lance team; killed Baum, killed Vampy and if I had killed one of the axe girls I would've probably won but they focused down a character and it all fell apart. Asellus' s3 hits like a truck after a few buffs.
>>904864
I don't have Coppelia but I have the rest of that squad. Seeing Asellus' damage on my last attempt, maybe it's possible for me to burst this down after all.

Lemme check and see if I still have the formation saved. I have gone through a shit ton of my last 10 slots doing cheeky summer GLEX in new types of content.

No yeah there it is. I don't recall that taking a lot of resets. But I think I OD'd Final Crusade turn 4 (or maybe 5, can't remember) and used a second Imperial Shield somewhere in there.
Both Alkaiser and Coppelia were using Full HP+ for that little bit of boost at the start since those axe chicks have to die immediately in a strategy like this or they reset you.

Nevermind my question about formation, hot damn it worked! Practically on the first try too, just had to reset once after an unlucky turn 1 charm from Vampy.

Yeah, GLEX events are pretty cool in how they stretch your brain and your roster. Must be rough for newfriends though. And I really hope we're able to get gold testaments from spiral corridor like JP soon; walling them behind the highest difficulties of GLEX events, the hardest events, is kinda brutal.
>>
>>904966
>walling them behind the highest difficulties of GLEX events, the hardest events, is kinda brutal.
that's about the only thing I really don't appreciate.
Part of the game's charm is the rewards being inverse. So a person just starting out can get full marks from events and get all rewards.
While I didn't particularly have issues with this or Ludwig, they should really ease up on that. The current suptix that's going on right now makes the game significantly easier to sell to people right now, but full rewards on this event isn't newbie possible at all.

Anyhow I just realized we've never got a GLEX Axe user.
We've got multiple of every other weapon type but exactly 0 axe.

Given how stacked slashing is. It's for the best I'd wager. Unless said axe user is an uber support they'd get creeped out of control.
>>
>>904968
>We've got multiple of every other weapon type but exactly 0 axe.
Aw jeez, you're right! It's my favourite weapon, so I just know they'd rope me into pulling. Hopefully it doesn't come this month; I'm so close to 45k for the SaGa 2 banner, which means I'm close to reviving my dream of being able to pull on the SaGa 3 banner.
>>
>>904974
I don't have that foreboding feeling in my gut anymore. Is what I want to say. There's at least one more curve ball in the near future but I expect the rest of this month to play out normally.
With Robin Family, Arsenal, and SaGa and SaGa for each week next week.

Unless some weird shit happens and they add more double banners which I don't see. Unless there's some substantial buffs on the robin family banner (and I mean, I could possibly use any of these units for another year levels of buffs) or another GLEX (which is way unlikely) this is mostly a skip month for me.
I only have the gold pieces for maybe a single other unit.
>>
Fuck, I can't get around the wall that is Emerald. A turtle team has to poke her and will get fucked by counters. A pierce team that nukes large chunks of her health can't survive the onslaught of damage. I just tried a variant turtle team with Roc to debuff INT (and a zero bp spell to poke) but she missed everyone, all the time. Ditto for trying to Chocoball with PWR on the same team, nothing but misses. That wasn't even with AGI debuffs from Emerald counters, I just flat can't hit them. Rapid Stream memes are out of the question as I don't have an aoe DEX debuffer.
>>
I'm playing grind catch up for these events, managed to beat romancing Nacht first try before closing, and now grinding out characters in the goddess event. Big thing I want right now is raising fire-attacker stats, skill ranks, and more importantly, the max health since I noticed my characters having high stats but the max health is always lacking. Plus, I get to raise skill ranks for the new Emerald and Saruin since their stronger AOE attacks are lacking in them. (Seekers Cave came in a bad time for me, damn IRL.)
I have an odd question, was Kawazu involved with the game Rudra no Hihou? Considering this game has a massive following, I thought they would try to get their other IPs involved.

As you can probably imagine from the image, half of this party wasn't good for me.
Mat got off two heals and then swiftly died.
Baum was ironically the only really important part of the strategy.

Basically, Fempress and mat took turns healing the party. Baum kept her Guard Up on everybody. And fempress, Mat, Baum, and Kat attacked turn 1 so that Emerald super charged our overdrive.

He was the supervisor for RnH, though honestly it's not a good game, easily one of the weakest games he was involved with.
Ichi-P already said he's not even considering other IPs for this game until the series receives "proper representation", there's Imperial SaGa: Eclipse for crossovers.
Besides nobody really cares about Rudra and I don't think Kawazu cares either, though he recently said he would like to go back to Racing Lagoon in some measure

>Have you tried accuracy holy stones?
Not sure if the investment would be worth it, I'll try some other things first.
I can copy that team of yours except for Therese, who I'm still depressed about having to skip.
>Basically, Fempress and mat took turns healing the party.
idk how they can do that with a limited single heal that dips into LP from Imp Shield too and Mat only having 2 heals; I need SBL for my sustain comps. Oh wait, you probably have that one style of Femps that I'm missing that can heal or something iirc.
>And fempress, Mat, Baum, and Kat attacked turn 1 so that Emerald super charged our overdrive.
Now that's a cool idea I can use, thanks!
>>904988
My pierce is and will always be fucked. I don't have either of those. Matter of fact, been playing since launch and I still don't have anyone that can hit hard with a spear.
I managed to kill Emerald at last, but it cost me everything. Back to the drawing board.

Aw fuck, the AGI debuff onslaught. I don't think accuracy stones can counter 7 AGI debuffs in a couple turns. Strangely, I was hitting her just fine in that previous attempt.

>>904988 (Hitler checked)
Bit of a shame since I happen to like that game a lot. Not as open as saga but I happen to like the world and how 4 main characters progressed , seeing how they appear in each others stories several times. The game was another experiment that definitely needed more fine tuning but there were little nuggets that were cool to find if you explored thoroughly. Balance was broken when you figured out how Mantras work since you could get absurdly powerful early in each quest if you had access to powerful dungeons early (Surlent path was extremely exploitable for this.)
>>
>>905005
Thanks, I was wondering how you survived turn 1 with no mitigation from Fempress or Baum; hopefully that'll do the trick. My OD doesn't seem to be charging nearly as fast as I'd like it despite eating nearly a dozen aoes on the first two turns.
>>
>>904993
Emila can get Wedding Emilia's Skill 3 for a pierce nuke on guns, Claudia has Heartseeker+ and so do a couple of other people like Windy, the key is indirect pierce to avoid getting roasted, even without STR piercers there's other options, Valdor also has many indirect Pierce skills.
>>
>>905007
The team in that image is aggressively tanky.
Fempress comes packaged with IIRC 25% from indomitable, and gives the entire team 20% from scrum guard

Therese reduces it damage by 35%
Baum's guard up is 50% for the entire team including herself
Matriarch... Admittedly is just there to heal twice, raise dex a little bit, and then die.

It was still pretty dicey, mind you.

It was just the strategy I wanted to use at the time. You can kill Emerald in two turns with morale up strats, but you're going to need some mighty accurate indirect slashers to deal with Therese. Who is significantly more dangerous than Kat
>>
>>905008
I'm trying Deadly Pierce with Emelia's Sweet Trap, Claudia and Therese (not summer)'s Heartseeker+ and Valdor's Drill Crusher with Baum in the back Shrine Dancing and it's just not enough deeps. Emerald lives with 40% hp turn 1, then everything crumbles turn 2. The issue is I need to commit so much of my team to kill the damn mage, there's nothing left for the other two massive threats.

>It was just the strategy I wanted to use at the time. You can kill Emerald in two turns with morale up strats, but you're going to need some mighty accurate indirect slashers to deal with Therese. Who is significantly more dangerous than Kat
Yeah, idk if I can pull that off. Tanking won't work, nuking won't work. I can beat World Tower but idk if I have the roster for this. Everyone who wins seems to have something I don't.

how to u auto-refill stamina during Auto-session ?

u dont

You can very easily setup a macro to press repeat and refill stamina when you run out
>>
>>905245
That's what I pretty much use when I want to grind during work and when I sleep.

Since I have been building up my lobster, getting this newest style was the best choice for another AoE STR debuffer siince I didn't get GLEX Coppelia, and I didn't raise the rank of Sherah's Incense. Plus getting his INT buffed to 80% really helps too.

Hot damn, congrats! This is the team I've settled on trying to win with except I didn't get Summer Therese (still bummed about that) so I will be trying with GLEX Claudia. She can heal herself with Healing Arrow every turn so maybe she can survive despite not having Therese's tankiness?
>>906427
Bro you are killlin' me with my Therese skip regrets. A great Bear style would be awesome.

Is there a complete list of buffs that benefit from being rank 99?
>>
Aw shit. I've finally figured out how to beat Emerald with relative ease, but Katarina is fucking invincible. Watermelon Cut keeps bringing her to full, my turtle team doesn't have the damage to hurt her.
>>
>>907949
After you kill Emerald you can switch Matriarch buffing to Paean of Victory to stack END, no need to stack Paean of Peace to outheal the firestorm spam, it's best to stack END instead.
If you have swimsuit Claudia you can also alternate Lacerate with Healing Arrow as that will damage both Emerald and Therese pretty heavily.
The battle is something of a domino effect, first you need to take care of Emerald, then it's either Katarina or Therese, as soon as either goes down then you got this, but it will take a couple of retries.
>>
>>907957
Thanks, those are pretty cool tips! Gonna give it some more tries then.
>>
Fuck! For some reason the enemy damage spiked after Emerald died even thought I was now END buffing with both Mama and Blob. And this was a run with no Watermelon Cuts, I thought I might actually do it. Confound it all, this is the first time in who knows how many months I feel I need six or seven party slots instead of five.
I need more healing, Mariah's extremely unreliable passive is not nearly enough. But there just isn't room in the party. I take out anyone at all, it's a fail.
>>
I don't understand. Somehow, with this very unusual gun team, I managed to kill Katarina. And then 2 or 3 turns later, Therese's Barrage Shot hit for thousands of damage when it was only doing a few hundred before. This should not be impossible, it defies the way this game works. No LP to left to revive people so that's GG (but really BG).
>>
>>908002
Mariah can outtank Therese by soaking hits, restoring back to full with Skill 3 and then get a guaranteed hit with OD, don't give up, that's how I won.
>>
>>908002
*should not be possible
It's like the game glitched and rewrote itself when it thought I was gonna win. Buff stacking simply can't work that way.
>>
>>908003
She slaughtered me next turn with a Searing Rapid Volley did double damage because Scrum Guard was gone (again, that's not how math works when I was only losing 20% mitigation, wtf).
>>
Is accuracy for guns and bows calculated with DEX or AGI for your party?
>>
Remember when they called Mariah as lackluster as award sophia
I remember

>>908027
Dex

>>908002
You overdrived which meant you lost the damage reduction bonus from that formation. Shits rough.
>>
>>908034
>Dex
Thanks, so that explains some of my misses.
>You overdrived which meant you lost the damage reduction bonus from that formation. Shits rough.
I don't think I OD'd at all that run. Weird stuff.
END buffing from PoV seems to do nothing, so I went back to Shining Glory for that emergency heal. Trying again with my gun team 'cause it's the only one that covers the insane laundry list of things I need to fulfill just to function in this satan's asshole of a fight. Now I can't get past Emerald though, I'm tilted hard. The more I play, the less passives seem to activate.
>>
>>908038
Taking blunt for katarina is a trap in my opinion. Emerald dying and then killing therese as fast as humanly possible with as many indirect slashes as humanly possible is safer.
>>
>>908044
Well, somehow I made it work! I killed them in order, leaving Therese for last, and somehow it all came together. Thank you to all the anons who tried helping me with advice. I'm glad to win using ZEKE and my girl Em, I couldn't have done it without either of them. Barrage Program really shone here, doing tons of damage to Kat and bypassing Therese's heavy resistance to all of my physical (pierce/blunt) damage. It was my first time using these prefecture styles to clear hard content.

I also gotta voice my appreciation for Matriarch 3.0. A lot of people, including me, slept on her 'cause the stats she buffs with Peace aren't as good as the ones she buffs with Victory. But with this new meta, I'm finding Peace to be far more valuable. It especially stood out here because my two sources of damage were DEX-based, meaning it kept up my accuracy and ramped up my damage while also slightly increasing my heals across the board. I ignored this style from its release until near the end of World Tower, but I've been using it ever since.

Thanks! And with that, my Undine is complete. Gonna sit on the rest of the gold testaments til I have enough to do Human F all in one go.
And sorry to hear about your Emerald pulls bro. A very similar thing happened to me with Therese, I couldn't justify chasing her either after getting the two styles I didn't care about.
At least the new grinding event is comfy and covers almost the entire roster; it's practically a conquest without the tons of extra jewels.

Neat, that new Mesarthim skin is one of those art contest winners they showed off a few streams ago for anniversary. Makes me wonder if the Bert art will get in as a skin too. Can't remember who the third one was.
