    You're thinking of Krile's Bard sphere.

    Just started playing 2.5 weeks ago, pulled Penelo BSB and Yuna BSB yesterday. Today I pulled Gilgamesh BSB, Aphmau USB and Rapha USB. Friend says he's kind of jealous over the two USBs and I only mildly understand why <.<

    Edit: Was happy to get Aphmau as I liked her in FFXI but turns out I can't unlock her at the moment? When will I be able to unlock her?

    Use a Soul of Hero in the Hall of Rites.

    She isn't in there, that's what I mean by she isn't unlockable at the moment.

    Aphmau was introduced a couple of events back, and unfortunately there is a bit of a lag between new characters and when their soul of a hero becomes available.

    Golbez BSB!
    I continue to have top tier stuff for a mage team, without any of the good hastegas. Just Edward's hastemarch.

    3/11, double disco.
    603trlzp9n79.png

    Seifer USB
    Aphmau USB
    Mog BSB (dupe)

    Seifer never makes the A-Team, and lacking his BSB, he never will, but that sword is +fire all realms, which is sooo in demand.

    Aphmau USB is pretty good. She might come out for MP fights once in a while, and this guarantees her a spot on the XI-Torment CM team, but otherwise, probably never using her. Again though, it's a 6* staff with natural stats. Worth leveling up.

    Dupe Mog BSB is dupe Mog BSB. Meh.

    1/11. Dupe Rinoa Ice Chain. Sigh. At least 2 of my A team actually can use it as a stat stick.

    Son of a --- folks, I'm a meme. Second dupe/11 in a row. I'm a wee bit upset.

    3/11 with two discos! One was a dupe Rosa USB, but the other two were Gilgamesh USB and Emperor BSB. Neat!

    Team idea.

    Squall: Enice unique/USB
    Rinoa: Ice Chain/BSB1, Mako Might
    Larsa: BSB
    Onion: BSB, Dr Mog's
    Ramza: Shout, USB
    RW: Wall
    Magicite: Wendigo

    Decent hybrid ice team? Alternatively, I could have Ramza use Shout on turn 1, and replace Onion with Sazh, for stacking breaks and maybe Entrust.

    The big limiting factor is that I have no BSB with ice for Squall to use. His use of his USB is gonna be limited to 10 shots of Blizzara Strike, or like 2 shots of Snowspell Strike. Which, I mean, they'd all probably cap under Ice Chain, but still.

    Hoping for discos.
    No discos.

    3/11
    Please don't be another 3 Ceodore BSB

    Thancreed poison BSB okay? I guess that's good?

    Edward BSB I have an instrument pulling problem. I have two 8 star megaphones, 1 8 star Moogle Bell, 3 of Edward's Harps, 1 of Eikos, not counting all the dupe microphones I tossed. This looks actually decent though, I didn't have a holy imperil, maybe I can get through FFT JS TORMENT with it?

    Rinoa BSB Not sure if she has two, this one has mug magic on command two, and it is a witch command for whatever reason. Probably doesn't stack with faith though? Not sure if this will be useful but looks like it might be better than Sara's ice BSB. Not sure I have enough magic buffs to make this workable against Fenrir, what do you need 3 or 4 to do good damage there?

    That's Rinoa's BSB2. Her BSB1 divides between Ice and Earth and has no AOE command or aura. Still good under Chain, but you got the better prize.

    Thancres's BSB gives Enbio? Well, he'd be a good candidate for Poison Leaves, then.

    No, its not Enbio, just Bio/non ninja. Some kind of stacking on command one like Raijin I guess? Is there a double cast ninja RM? It is apparently RS+ bio+ for what little that is worth.

    Hope's got a Dispelga command, which is occasionally game-changing. Balthier's thing is an Imperil fire, right?

    Yeah Hope BSB 2 is pretty great, 100% slow and disepl on command 1 and interrupt on entry and command 2.

    The holy dragon in VI + dungeon is nice enough to cast dispel as an interrupt before casting holy on you, so no need for shell.

    Also, hilariously Melidoul in the tactics U++ is apparently weak to interrupt, slow, and stop, not that it matters since she is also weak to OHKO from Cid.

    Got P.Cecil BSB2 and Desch BSB. No dupes and I'll definitely get use out of both of them. Pretty happy.

    Hope's BSB2. It's more modern than his old BSB1, as it has holy/non-element in it's damage (if the enemy is immune or resistant to holy, it will automatically switch to non-elemental damage so you're not screwed).

    That's unfortunately Balthier's old BSB1. It's not terrible, since it's fire/non-elemental typed damage, but the commands and entry try to apply Blind, which only a handful of bosses are susceptible to, and even less require that you blind them as an objective. It'll work for you as a damage burst, but it's strictly mid-tier at best.

    Change of plans for Squall/Rinoa team. Support core will be Tyro and Ramza. Will needs must use Hyper Mighty G as the RW.

    Emperor BSB gives me a legit magical wind team, with Alphinaud BSB and Fujin SSB/Raging Storm, though I don't know when that will ever be useful considering anything that isn't weak to wind will get nuked by the Cloud wombo combo. I suppose it might help me against Golem.

    Absolutely it will help you against Golem. Ignore Earthen Wall entirely.

    magic wind is the only way you can feasibly sub 30 golem unless you have a ridiculously stacked cloud combo

  • AshtonDragonAshtonDragon AKA The Nix Registered User regular
    I personally beat Golem with Alphinaud BSB + Emperor BSB, so it's definitely good enough for that.

    Although I also personally beat Golem with Cloud combo, so yeah, maybe your mileage will vary.

  • EnlongEnlong Registered User regular
    Trying to decide if I should spend 50 of my 54 power crystals honing Snowspell Strike to R3 for Squall.

    I suppose the questions I need to ask myself include "will I ever want to hone Affliction Break or Omega Drive to R3 instead?", "are 6 shots, plus 10 Lifesiphons, enough for Squall to last a full battle, when paired with his USB and Enice unique?", "Is there an easier-to-hone ice Spellblade Twinstrike coming eventually?", and "will this even do more damage than pairing Rinoa with Shantotto?"

    While I don't have the USB myself, I've heard that it does not play well with dualcasts. I don't think they count towards using two abilities to trigger the followup, and the followup itself can't be dualcasted either (as is usual for USB followups). A part of the reason why that relic is "merely" good compared to his BSB2.

    Ok. I'll put his Legend Dive out of my mind for now then. Save those motes.

    1/11, but it's a disco. It's a staff I don't recognize. Oh gods, please no, not Y'shtola USB!

    It's... Ovelia USB?

    Thanks for not being literally the worst, though it still probably won't see any serious use.

    Sigh, missed opportunity.

    Alright, time for more pulls. Can my main account break its streak of 1/11 on BSB and BSB+ draws? Let's find out. But first, the alt gets its draw.

    3/11 - dupe Terra BSB, Delita USB, Zack CSB

    Wow, that's a pretty darn good draw. No other soul breaks for Zack unfortunately, but I do have Cloud BSB2 and Luneth BSB for wind chaining if I want. Delita's USB is somewhat interesting and would pair reasonably well with his BSB if I had it on this account, but I don't. It is a 6* dagger though, so now I have a 195 ATK weapon that every character can equip. This does open up a possibility for a Golem team of Zack (CSB), Cloud (BSB2), Luneth (BSB), Onion Knight (BSB) and Larsa (BSB) which might or might not work, as physical is disadvantaged so heavily on Golem. Might be worth a try, though.

    Now the main account.

    1/11 - dupe Garnet BSB1

    Once again the main account goes 1/11 on a draw that is BSB, BSB+ or BSB, CSB, USB. You know, the ones you REALLY don't want to go 1/11 on. And it is even dupe/11. Here's hoping for better luck on the 6* draw tomorrow.
