    That is a great Quistis pull. And with both those relics there is no need to bother with diving her for Black 5, because why would you do anything other than Wrath into BSB into OSB?

    100 gem got me Quistis Hastega SSB. Not terrible, but pretty useless for me. Quistis continues to find a way to not be even CM team viable for me. Oh well. Never look a rainbow in the mouth.

    Was thinking of slapping Wrath and Chain Biora on her. But maybe I should instead dive for White 4.

    Do they? I don't pay much attention to her. The Haste, Shell, Regen one. It was great once upon a time but now it just has no place on my teams despite how useful it is.

    Damn, you got the pull I wanted.

    100 gem: nothing
    1st 50 mithril: Dreamstage
    2nd 50 mithril: Irvine Pentabreak

    Those are definitely useful SBs and should set me up nicely to crush VIII CMs for a good while, but I really wanted either the good Quistis items (because she's my favorite) or Edea burst (because it's really strong, and I already have both of her SSBs to boost her MAG). Oh well. I think JP got Doomtrain and the two bursts on the festival after this one, so maybe we'll see the same.

    100-gem: Quistis OSB

    Okay, I guess I kinda forgive this game for the garbage lucky draws I recently had

    So now I, too, have both Quistis' BSB and OSB

    Bahamut is an interesting fight...

    Apocalypse, no wall. 1400 aoe Thundaja against shell. 500 damage single attacks. Back to back 1500 tornadoes (prompting two aoe heals). Then the rest of the fight was single target Ultimate Thundajas for like 700 damage.

    Ultimate++ never broke 700 damage against like five stacking magic breaks until he killed himself with damage reflected Ultimate Megaflare.

    Damn, I still want to drop another 50 mythril, but I can't decide whether to take a shot at banner 1 for Fujin BSB/Raijin BSB or banner 2 for Quistis OSB/Edea BSB.

    I just 100 gemmed doom train. Yea ok I guess.

    Now I feel like I gotta pull on this banner for her bsb?

    Well, I guess maybe I should just wait for the festival, maybe fujin or quistis BSBs will be on there.

    If you have the OSB, you could always RW her BSB for the en-element, then drop the OSB. Can't do it the other way, since RW OSBs don't use any active auras.

  • DaffyddDaffydd Registered User regular
    MG8 + Inaugural Parade + 5*+ Rising Sun (ancient!) on Fujin + RW Metamorphose = easy CM, full medals. Turns out Fujin without SBs fills Rinoa's no-SB slot and brings 4* White (and 4* Support), which is terribly useful when you want to bring Dispel.

    I'd love to have the Quistis BSB/OSB combo, but I'm saving for (3/9/T Lucky and) XIII banner 1, which would add to my already stacked Lightning (who needs a BSB and en-lightning) and Fang (who needs an OSB and reverse wall). And Fest. One of these days, a Fest won't terribly disappoint me.

    Yes, Inagural Parade is ancient, but it's still wonderful for VIII Cid Missions.

    Just beat the Cid Mission myself. After I got past their Slowgas, it was a steamroll. Well, more of a trainroll.

    Saving for anniversary banners is torture. I've got 120 mythril burning a hole in my pocket.

    I have 177 mythril at the moment. And I have to pretend it all doesn't exist

    Blasted through the U(+/++) putting Zell through his paces and naturally being in his home realm meant he was kicking ass.
    I'll be giving the CM a shot because this is actually my strongest realm in terms of synergy.

    Roster:
    Squall - BSB
    Rinoa - BSB
    Zell - BSB
    Quistis - Hastega + Magic Fast Cast SSB
    Selphie - Dreamstage SSB
    Laguna - Imperil Ice SSB
    Irvine - Dark Shot I'm helping too guys! SSB
    Weapons include a generic 5+++ sword and Squall's BSB1 sword that's 5+, two of Selphie's weapons that are 5+ as well.

    For the CM I'm probably going to laugh off pretty much all my native SBs, just layer up mitigation RW Metamorphosis onto Rinoa and annihilate the U+ because lol, Dark weakness.

    The U+ is Biggs and Wedge. They have no elemental weaknesses. The U is Squall, and he's the one with a Dark weakness.

    I'd suggest adding Seifer to your CM team, even if you have no SB for him, as he can carry Draw Fire to soak the single-target attacks from Biggs and Wedge, and Banishing Strike to kill their Haste and Regen buffs.

    oh yeah, I was thinking to myself why the Main Character fight was so easy then realised it was the U only.

    U++ wasn't bad either. Ashe (BSB), Edea (strongest mage who can wield my RS thrower), Papalymo (faithga SSB), Penelo (dancer/medica), Y'shtola, RW Hail to the Queen. I was definitely glad to have the medica. Finished off Fujin, then Seifer, then Raijin. Papalymo died because his defensive stats are terrible.

  • EnlongEnlong Registered User regular
    Whoops.

    Maybe I shouldn't forget Protectga when going in against Seifer and Crew.

    Missing Selphie's Dreamstage yet again is a blessing in disguise since it means I can go hard on the Selphie USB banner (Squall's #1 dps BSB2, Irvine's incredibly decent pentabreak + stacking debuff BSB and Selphie's instant curaga + last stand + hi regen USB)

    This has broken me of my fever of trying to chase one of those BSBs on Banner 1 even harder.

    Now I just have to hope that one of the festival banners makes sense for me. I guess probably 2 weeks minimum before we hear about those.

    Disciplinary Committee defeated. Quistis's place on the team cemented. So much poison.

    With the U++ being a multi target fight against poison weak enemies, should I switch my RW back to Edgar? I switched away because no one was summoning, but if it would be useful I could certainly go back.

    They go crazy-AoE in weak phase, you want to take Fujin first (nasty debuffs) and then the other two, one by one.

    Convincing victories reinforce my belief that if you have basic tools and stat sticks, it's only worth pulling for Torment-worthy SBs.

    Went for a pull anyway, what the heck. 1/11, Edea BSB. I'm okay with more mages for my team so good day.

    I mean, that entire category is just good BSBs and yes that's basically all you should ever pull for.

    Ugh, did a 11-pull on banner 2 and got Quistis SSB, Edea SSB, and Rinoa SB.

    I suppose Rinoa's en-earth will work with her BSB, and Quistis's SSB is good for CMs, but damn did I strike out on these two banners.

    Just finished my replay of FF9, sitting here listening to the ending/intro theme music. I'll never look at the relic draw animation quite the same way again... Never would have committed 60+ hours to this again if it weren't for FFRK.
