    EX+ weapons (Chaos difficulty) era is still something like 3-4 months away (first one should be between the Sherlotta and Garland events)

    Keep in mind for tonight that only half of the awakening wave is actually getting reworks to make them relevant. For this first wave, it's Warrior of Light, Shantotto and Laguna, with Laguna getting a brand new EX to go with it. Cater, Sazh and Yda are sadly only getting the new stuff without any changes to their earlier awakening passives or base abilities.

    Cater should technically also be getting new artifact passives like Vivi and Serah got about a month ago, but I would ignore farming for them unless you're a huge fan of Cater. Those alone are not going to be enough to turn around her fate of being forever-bad.

    Did the last Strata 9 with Rinoa, Lightning, and Y'shtola. Had to reset some stages a few time before I finally got it.....but short 3000 points on score, dangit! So close.

    Redid stage with the Zack/Serah/Vayne pain train and easily hit 340k. Haha.

    Excited for WoL! Also Laguna I suppose, since I have all of his other stuff? Guess I should try a little for his EX.

    "I have the non-EX stuff for this character" is not a selling point for me personally; I assume I will draw all the non-EX stuff in multiples on my way to getting an EX

    Tickets to the gun show (Laguna/Sazh/Cater)
    Took 235 to get there, but the machine gun is mine! Also,

    7 Laguna 35
    2 Laguna 15
    4 Cater 35
    7 Cater 15
    1 Sazh 35
    4 Sazh 15
    And an off banner Yda 15 for good measure.

    Got Laguna EX, WoL is an absolute beast now and will remain so for a good 6 months before Zack starts edging him out

  • XerinkXerink Registered User regular
    I broke the level cap on all 6 characters from the awakening wave, but I am only investing further in WoL for now since I have his EX weapon and need to save resources if I want to make an earnest shot at getting Alisaie's EX in a few days.

    I had enough of Shantotto and Laguna's kits to give their reworks a shot last night though, and both of them are pretty nice. Shantotto hits really hard now, but you'll need to keep an eye on her Rage mode and make sure you refresh it appropriately before it falls off. This is especially true if she's with a tank like WoL because he will take all of the hits.

    Yeah, I have been decently impressed with 'totto in multiplayer. WoL is obviously nuts. Laguna is decent with EX, though he kind of wants to be hanging out with a battery (like WoL, hint hint).

    Seems like almost nobody is in the 100 co-op, I had to solo it to get it cleared. Guess everybody is in the Cosmos co-op for the massive windfall of Eidojas (seriously, they rain from the sky)

  • chrono_travellerchrono_traveller Registered User regular
    Holy cow, Fry, you weren't kidding. They do rain from the sky!

    Yeah, I've always kinda liked Shantotto (never played FF11, but I do play a Lalafell in FF14, so maybe thats the connection?), and she hits like an absolute truck in the raid. Though a couple times now, I've let the rage debuff fall off and that was embarrassing. :( I dunno how awesome she'll be after she's not buffed (and not fighting a boss that is weak to her two elements), but I'm hopeful.

    So, whats the lowdown on bloom stones? Are they worth saving up for especially useful ones? Or are they going to come at a decent enough clip (like armor tokens) that as long as you're not spending them all willy-nilly you'll be ok?

    Word on the street is, aside from the three available from this raid, they're going to be fairly scarce for a while, so you may want to hang on to them. Particularly since this first wave's c65 abilities are not great. Eventually JP version added bloom stones to the chocobo boards, enough for two per month, so that's probably the point where you can start being a little more liberal with them.

    This will teach me not to have any of those 6 characters except WoL maxed out. Although even at lvl 62/gem level 65 he still just shits all over the raid boss.

    Got Laguna's EX from pulls, so we'll see what I can do to get him up from...lvl 15/gem 35? D'oh...

    I haven't had that problem this version, but in a past version I had that happen and I think part of the reason it was happening was that I was out of memory on my phone. Might want to check that?

    Got four tickets this morning from the raid missions, so in my usual fashion I spent them immediately and got Laguna's EX on the first one, lol.

    I still don't have Sazh 35 :rotate:

    I realized today I never got WoL's 35. Crazy.

    Hilariously, Atlas COSMOS is soooo much easier in a group than solo, at least for me. Couldn't bring him down without wiping once using WoL/Laguna/Cloud friend Rinoa, but 3 WoL gives no shits.

    I got distracted by all the events happening in FGO and Dokkan Battle, but I did start playing Dissidia more often in preparation. I've only got two Lost Chapters left and then I have all of Act 2 I can use to grind out more gems.

    I'm with you there Rius. I half heartedly threw tickets on this banner because I kinda wanted to have the twins maybe have some situational usefulness together (and that in my head, they would be casting Twinspell ;-) ) About thirty tickets in with no 5* in sight, out pops her EX.

    #veryunexpected

    Her abilities seem very niche, I guess there's always some HP attack happy boss, but I don't see her particularly useful generally. Is there something I'm missing?

    I discussed Porom with the other Crystal Chroncles Podcast cohosts last week, and the general consensus we all had is that she is very strong at what she does but is unnecessary for most content right now if you have other healers (Lenna or Freya as examples).

    Japan foresight says that Porom was used as a safety for some players to get though early Chaos fights due to her strong HP damage reduction but I do not think she will be mandatory. If you are willing to pull for early Chaos characters and invest in some early EX+ weapons you will get through okay.

    I took a pull on the banner and got an off-banner unneeded Lion 15 and I was so disgusted I just turned off the game for the night.

    I know it can happen, but that was just so lame.

    Tickets for Paine:
    200 spent

    4 Wakka 35
    2 Firion 35
    5 Wakka 15
    4 Firion 15
    2 Paine 15
    Offbanner 15s for Irvine, Steiner

    That's just slightly below expectation value. Really glad they give all these draws away for free, I would be cranky if I had paid money for this.

    Steiner was one of the last few characters I had nothing for, so that's cute at least.

    Edit: went back and threw more tickets, 300 total and no EX. Oh well, sometimes gacha decides you don't get to have the thing

    Edit: the lowest difficulty of the wings event drops several fodder artifacts, at no cost to you (stamina or bells). That's not normal, I don't think.

    Paine is kind of ridiculous

    I got her EX in 5k (this is becoming a theme) and maxed her out, glad I did because she makes everyone better while debuffing enemies to hell with a single framed debuff slot

    Also she shits damage

    I'm so happy Paine is good

    Currently running with a team of her, Lightning, and Auron. It's hard for any of my other DPS to compete with Lightning, but Paine holds her own pretty damn well.

    Did a pull for Noctis, got a Rem 35 and Galuf 15.

    Threw 10 tickets at the banner, got Noctis 15 and 35.

    Did another draw, Terra 15 and Noctis EX. Wooo!!

    I apparently have decent luck here when I have crap luck in Record Keeper.

    Noctis does...a lot of damage. It's quite silly

    Edit: clearing through 2-4 hard mode. From zero BRV, his HP++ dealt 40k against a moderately high level boss. Yeesh.

    I managed to pick up his 35, and finally get Rem's 35, but I'm probably done spending on his banner which means I won't use him much I guess

    Oh well I'll have to fall back on the subpar Vayne and Zack for melee damage, haw

    Saved up and did a third 5k pull on Paine's banner after my first two got me a whole bunch of Wakka balls.

    2x Paine 15
    1x Paine 35
    1x Paine EX

    Man, trying, at the last minute, to get in Porom's cosmos battle with Porom, Palom, and Rinoa. But man, those guys are extremely silly geese. One attempt went pretty smoothly, and I got down 2 of the 3, with the last one left at about a quarter health (and only like 65ish turns in), thought I was gonna be ok. Didn't realize that with only one left, they go into their final form. He got that buff, and promptly wiped by entire team. :(

    Heretic/chasm Cosmos difficulty co-op is very possible to lose. The knight can chunk people for 10k+, the assistant wolves in wave 2 will happily use their BRV regen to munch people, and Dark Bahamut's Megaflares can do 5k HP damage to each character if you don't do anything to counteract it. DB's Cure will heal it for 300k, so don't let it do that.

    Note that Dark Bahamut doesn't counter summons, even though it says it does, so you probably want to run a summon train on it as usual. WoL's shields can absorb an entire Megaflare, lol. Zack with EX is pretty much invincible.
