    3 pulls, TGCid OSB(dupe), Marche USB/LMR, TGCid LMR, and Alma USB.


    I want that TGCid USB, but I feel like I should probably quit now.

    Oh neat I need to make that. It’s not super useful once they buff guardbringer but it’s cheap enough to make one

    Pull 1: 3/11 Alma's LMR, 2 of Orlandeu's Cloak, which I had grabbed as my bonus selection from the gem only banner back when they messed it up and everyone got a second draw. Poop.

    Pull 2: 2/12 Marche's USB and LMR!!! Quickcast for everyone!

    Pull 3: 1/11 Alma's USB. Eh. It's nice, but eh.

    No TGCid USB which was my big prize, but Marche's stuff is solid enough.

    Also, God help me, I may make a second R3 Smoldering Fire. I managed to get Isgebind down in around 35 seconds, and that was with my Ninja only pulling half-duty and a misclick on an Entrust. The trouble is that the buy-in to get under 30 seconds is 60 MDOs, and I'm not even sure it would work.

    I have two copies, R3, of both ninja spells.

    I want them all R4.

    Kinda considering diving TGCid with just BSB because I've got a mountain of VIT/DEX and no good options.

    His BSB and OSB are great for his legend dive, due to their longer cast times. His OSB especially.

    Screw it, embracing my new zero mythril lifestyle.

    3/11 no rainbows
    Dupe TGCid cloak
    TGCid LMR
    Marche BSB

    Still a good draw. Dualcast Knight/Dark when I've got his burst is good, and I've got Marche's LMR, which gives a decent boost to his BSB. Not living the dream (TGCid's OSB eludes once more), but not a wasted draw.

    TGCid is worth the dive with BSB+LMR, right?

    Dual-cast holy/dark + permanent haste seems like a good deal... He just made my list, I mean.

    Spent 200 mythril. I didn't get the bigger prizes like TGCid USB or Marche USB or Ramza BSB2.

    I did get Marche BSB and Ramza LMR though... and some Alma stuff, and 2x dupe Cid BSBs and 1x Cid OSB.

    Soooo... 3rd Birthday it is! Tyro USB3 banner go! Fuck Cid USB. No one NEEDS that shit. It doesn't even chase for free, wasting Knight/Darkness hones. Fuck that! (I'm trying to justify my salt).

    After fest I'm kind of done with spending on this game, I had a clear goal coming into this year that I'd only whale on Onion and TGCid

  • AegisAegis Fear My Dance Overshot Toronto, Landed in OttawaRegistered User regular
    Should still have 10 pulls for Banner 3 and 5 on the Fest, give or take however much free mythril we actually get, but I would have liked at least some kind of Ramza relic :(

    I'm not pulling here. Pulled way too much on onion and that was a huge mistake. Not going to make the same mistake twice. Also I have less than 100 mythril so can't really do much. Did work up the energy to do the dragonwar jump start and ultimate fight though.

    ...are you the guy everyone is talking about with people who got a lot of Mythril out of Renewal and it's still distorting things? ;P

    I'm budgeted to 2 pulls on Banner 5 and that basically bottoms me out for Mythril.

    I guess Alma BSB & LMR aren't the worst?

    Instant CM1, her BSB heals and is a party Magic Blink (which I don't have). Just as long as she has a dualcast in her legend dive.

    Right? He's the physical holy/dark version of Vivi (and he can target earth once we get earth saber, dirtbringer is too clunky to use right now)

    Do you just not spend on weekly banners or something normally? I got a fair amount from Renewal but it's all evaporated by now.

    well, vivi has an enelement and a big 6* ability to doublecast too.

    i'd probably prefer vivi's usb over cids but i really need magic fire damage and holy/dark is really just a vanity project for me.

    Well I stopped playing shortly after Renewal. Came back around Onion Knight (ish), but I don't care for III so didn't pull. And I don't pull on banners I don't care for any of the characters for, and don't really do luckies anymore (because why would I want SSBs), so yea.

    I knew about the attack boost and doublecast, but the 100% on cast, AND 100% crit EX mode is completely ridiculous. Is it because they couldn't decide whether to give him enholy or endark, so they just gave a buff that would effectively do both?

    In much the same way that Raines is godly without any kind of endark/holy

    Remaining budget...

    25 on DU42
    100 on V-2 for Krile USB/Butz BSB4 although given the surprise Yda USB and how decent my fire is already I may shave a pull here
    75 on what should be the fest luckies (whether it's our traditional 3x25 or the JP 5x15)
    50 on a 2nd 33-pull
    100 on Banner 5
    50 on X-1 for all the new nutso water stuff there

    I might try to make Alma work. Proshellhasteregenastrareraisega and a mblink burst with instant C1 and a w-cast lm2 sounds too stupid to not try fielding at least once in a while.

    (I mostly just wanted to say Proshellhasteregenastrareraisega, really.)

    I really think this is the reason daily missions didn't come back. They probably weren't thinking ahead when they did renewals since it was the only event global did, and then someone found out they GAVE OUT HOW MUCH MYTHRIL? damage control. Etc.

    I can see bringing her to MP. Usually I bring Y'sh and a support type like Minfilia + LS/50% atk, but that's a pretty good thing to provide too.

    Edit: Like damn, Marche in MP is gonna be FUN with his USB... That's a lot of front row!

    Great for people who got more than 30 mythril from renewals.

    At least I got accessories out of it.

    FFT-1 100 gems: 3* blah. I'll probably end up pulling anyway, but not until the KH banner is revealed.

    4/54 this batch

    9/65 last batch (0.1 items below EV, which is pretty much exactly expected return, though quite a few duds even on my hits)

    Note to self: No whining, Rikku USB, never forget. Also Cloud BSB2.

    Do you just not spend on weekly banners or something normally? I got a fair amount from Renewal but it's all evaporated by now.
    I got a good amount from Renewal and I have 550 right now. And no, I don't pull on weekly banners very often. Not as a hard rule; my pulling standards are just really high.

    I try my best to schedule my pulls around banners with the highest chance of getting something decent, rather than chasing the strongest individual relics. The Tactics banner has about 3/14 worth of stuff I'd feel strongly about if I got it (Orlandeau USB, Marche USB, Ramza LMR). 3/14 is crap so I won't pull. 5/14 is usually my floor and even that feels kind of sketchy. I don't even like Orlandeau, and favoritism is definitely a factor. I also always stop pulling after getting 1-2 decent things rather than braving dupes to chase the rest, and I almost never pull more than twice on anything.

    My recent (relatively) pulling history is...
    -1 pull on Onion banner (I almost skipped this out of apathy; got Sage and stopped)
    -2 pulls on Terra/Locke (tempted to do a third to fish for en-fires but I got a tiny bit too much)
    -2 pulls on banner 4 of the last fest (I was desperate for ice tech and got it, and this banner was stacked top to bottom for me)
    -1 pull on banner 2 on the last fest (got mediocre stuff; banner wasn't worth more pulls)
    -4 pulls on XII (this was catastrophic; I tilted real bad and got jack-all)
    -1 pull on IV (I like Rydia a lot and some of the earth/dark stuff was passable; I planned more but I lucked out hard and got Rydia BSB2/OSB in one go)
    -Skipped the fest before last because I was pissed about the changes
    -2 pulls on the Faris/Bartz banner. Almost did a third but there was too much else coming.
    -2-3 pulls on the fest before that, I think?

    The drought between three fests ago and two fests ago was a freak occurrence due to the expectation of the Super Fest that never was, but other than that this is pretty typical of me. I don't pull very often! My future plans are a bit sparse too:

    -~2 on VIII (although getting Edea BSB2 in the fest makes it less amazing)
    -0-1 on IX (very dubious but it lines up with some stuff I'm thinking about)
    -1-2 on XII (because I don't learn)
    -2-4 on Terra/Yuffie fest banner (this one is obscene for me; if it stays the same it's dupeless and almost nothing is bad)

    I literally can't remember ever being under 100 mythril. I like having a safety net. I also have a couple hundred unclaimed story mythril that I'm saving for a rainy day.

    Already have his OSB and BSB. While the rest of the banner is tempting I think one pull is enough with the grand prize in hand.
