    Ah, after ultracloud and extremefest. Sounds good. I'm probably only going to pull on the FF12 banner for Fran's BSB in the next couple months anyway, so that seems alright. FF8 coming back with Fujin's chakram again is tempting, but I might just wait for extremefest for another shot at that since my FF8 synergy is kinda ludicrous now.

    I've discovered that I actually kind of prefer hoarding mythril then spending it all, so I'll probably start gathering for Cloud's USB now. Though looking at how long it lasts, I like that it's also pretty easy to just find it as a RW and reap the same benefits as having it native.

    It's much better RW anyway since you can use it with pretty much any enElement, and not just wind. Of course, having both options can make things really silly. The rest of the top of the banner is really good anyway. Zack's LSB is one of the best so far in one of the most common elements, Cloud's BSB2 is obviously great and matches up well with Zack, and Cait Sith's BSB is a very strong support buff with hybrid break commands.

    Yeah, I just want Cloud to be in my A team again. I have neither his OSB or his BSB2, so he's managed to be sidelined for the most part outside of 7 CMs

    Time to find out how strong my willpower is. I have 180 Mythril (with more coming from game rewards/record missions) and having nabbed Raines BSB I have an inclination to stop drawing at this point and just carry my balance forward for targeted pulls on banners and/or Extreme Fest. We'll see if my willpower holds when I'm staring at those 3 OSB on banner 4, while keeping in mind that I already have 3 relics (Agrias BSB, Eiko BSB, Alphinaud SSB).

    Then again, I made a solemn pact with myself to always try for Veil of Wiyu, so I may make 1 vanity 11-pull on banner 4 then shut it down.

    Yea I'm in a similar problem as you. I don't *need* anything off banner 4, but I'd really like TG Cid, either of Agrias' relics, and Alph's burst, but I have Hamelin and Evoker's Doublet already.

    I'm sitting at 320 atm which is way better than I expected to be at this point in the week, so I have to decide how much I want to save toward the future and stacking break BSBs or go for the shiny that I want, but don't need.

    Oh dang. There's another relic in the new JP FFV event that I forgot to mention.

    Bartz USB: 10xST Wind/Water/Earth/Fire attacks. Gain EX Mode "Spellblade Flurry" (ATK+30%, quickcast all, trigger Chase mode when using Spellblade attacks of Wind, Water, Earth, or Fire elements. Spellblade Flurry's Chase Mode attacks are randomly selected between a 2-hit or an 8-hit physical attack, of the same element as the spellblade attack used to trigger it.)

    Faris's is also pretty crazy: 9 wind/ne hits, imperil wind, atk/mag/mnd breakdown.

    Bartz also has a +atk/res command in his new BSB, which is nice

    So Bartz can hit up to 28 times in a turn if you get super lucky. That's got to be fun with LCSB.

    36, I think, actually.

    4-hit Spellblade burst Mode attack, triplecasted, with the 8-hit chase mode attack triggering after each use.

    But that'll be vanishingly rare to see happen, I think.

    I don't think a pull will hurt you, depending on your plans for banner 5. IMO carrying a balance of over 300 mythril forward means you probably haven't spent optimally over the past few months (or just got fantastically lucky), and this applies to me as well. I think the sweet spot is between 100-200 mythril.

    FWIW I looked at the banner again and decided to do one 11-pull. So there's that.

    Depending how the Legend Materia and regular Materia interact (people are saying both can trigger at the same time) then you might be able to theoretically hit 48 times in a turn! The odds of that are likely incredibly low, though.

    I will be broke for Mythril after tomorrow evening, but I'll get 70+ back from remaining anniversary stuff.

    My banner 5 plans are basically no plans. I don't really like that banner very much.

    I did get pretty lucky this festival so far. In hindsight I should have taken a tilt at banner 1, but I didn't know banner 2 was going to be so kind to me so fast, and banner 3 vomiting half it's contents in a single pull meant it would have been irresponsible to pull again there. Player's Choice giving me OK BSB in my free pull also prevented any further pulling there.

    It's been a weird experience. This is literally the first time it's ever happened that I've gotten multiple #1 item I want on the banner instantly. FF14 was pretty good as well, only took 3 pulls to get one of my top 3.

    I think it's RNG coming back around after my Fujin chase and my 3 lucky draws being a bit of a bummer.

    I sure would like some better RNG tomorrow night. My curaga draw was 4/11 but all SSBs and 3 of them were repeats. My element infusion draw was 2/11 with one being an SSB doll for Lulu and the other being Leon's dark aura BSB, which I guess is alright but honestly on the low end of BSBs. My BSB draw was Delita's BSB, which has a gimmick of doing more damage on a crit but my only crit chance boost is also on Delita. I then actually hit a 100 gem on the Player's Choice, except it was my third Platinum Sword. My free draw on Player's Choice was a dupe Paladin Cecil BSB. Then I spent 50 mythril to go 1/11 again, but this was my best draw of the festival because it was Y'shtola's Healer's Circlet. Then I did two draws on the P3 banner to get 2x Laguna SSB, dupe Noel SSB, Krile SSB and Sabin SSB.

    I'm super happy I got Y'shtola's BSB, but the P3 draws were such a disappointment. I wanted every OSB and BSB on the banner, and couldn't even manage to snag one! I will be very cross if I again miss out on the OSBs and BSBs on P4.

    The thing that really makes me want to pull again is that only Raines BSB ever comes back.

    There's 9 days to be able to do all the Nemesis and Record Mission stuff after orbfest is done. Materialfest will still be going for a few more days, but pfft. With the giant heap of them U++s give you, I could sell my entire stack and still be massively overloaded by the time the next fest rolls around.
