    Honestly, even if they did, I wouldn't be able to use it based on how expensive it'd be. My gil income has dried up in a major way when they stopped orbfests, and completely decoupled it from farming xp and/or orbs.

    EDIT: 18 million gil to reforge a current 8* item, if anyone was wondering

    Gil Greenwood is there if you ever need to turn a bunch of stamina into more Gil than you need.

    Question - is it worth keeping Alma's USB staves separate? It IS a holy boosting 6* weapon, but my main holy magic user is Raines, who runs off of MAG. If I had Rem's good stuff it'd be a no-brainer, since I also have Lenna's USB armor.

    Unfortunately the gil isn't even THAT great, considering how expensive even regular upkeep tasks, like converting greater orbs to major orbs can be

    Stamina is also the main limiter there.

    assuming 1 magic vase per stage, which is extremely generous, you're looking at about 350-400k, for 80 stamina. So it'd take...roughly 3600 stamina to earn enough to pay for 1 6* dark matter reforge, if and when that comes out.

    With TGCid's Legend Dive here, I finally decided to tilt at the 4* magicite.

    Kraken went down in 27 seconds. Given a team of Lightning (USB/BSB2) and TGCid (OSB) on DPS, Ysh'tola (BSB) on healing, and OKnight (pUSB) and Shelke (does it matter) on entrusting, with everyone fully Legend Dived, the big blue squid didn't really have a chance.

    Gonna farm up on this one for a bit before I move on. My water team is still a little anemic, particularly with that fuckin bullshit 1/11 Gogo BSB the water banner gave me, so Marilis is gonna have to wait just a bit.

    Here's hoping the fest changes that around for me some.

    Why does it take eight minutes to do a 24 second Dark Dragon run on my phone? This is really absurd in light of how fast DFFOO loads and plays, at 60 FPS.

    Dffoo is just a totally different kind of game

    Better? Debatable but it's certainly way less taxing on your time, looks and sounds better, and is easier to pick up/put down

    one of the biggest qol things I want is the ability to queue up actions while special moves are animating. That would be a huuuuuge time saver.

    I think Anniversary's start date is March 23rd, and the Series Luckies (3-pulls with G5) ought to start on March 9th.

  • JavenJaven Registered User regular
    Am I crazy, or does everyone get Tyro’s USB3 for free with the anniversary? Or am I thinking of when we all got his USB2?

    Maliris, why are you such a RNG filled bullshit fight?

    Randomly sometimes just takes 10-15s longer because of constant interrupts or randomly just fucking kills me because of being fractional points off meter for Rosa USB or something and she takes two turns to back to back Savage Firaga before I can do anything.

    This is me at the beginning of the fight. If her second and third random attacks target the same person, or she uses a physical ability on the front row, oops, guess I'm trying again.

    No SSB here either. Turns out, that's with him using subpar gear. If I don't give him elemental boost gear he hits 625 ATK.

    Of course, consistency can sometimes be just as much of a pain. I can hardly accuse Tiamat as being RNG-heavy; she's quite reliable in doing party-wiping AOEs on nearly every turn.

    Are you using ProShellga and Wall? With all of those and TG mode/Curada on my healer I've always been able to handle the damage until the AOEs start.

    I'm personally not using Protect, so bad RNG on Savage Flame Slash double or triple hitting a frontliner late in the fight can instantly kill them. =/

    Hmm, my ideal marilith team at the moment is Tidus/Edge/Shelke/OK/Eiko but with Edge carrying the ninja abilities I don’t know what to give Onion Knight. I guess I could make him a second Entrust bot. Does Wrath work with his ninja EX mode?

    If you've got a team that can beat them, they're okay.

    For elements you're weak on? Ahahaha.

    Well, you're not hitting, so the atk override doesn't matter. But yeah, I do that.

    If you're RIGHT on top of things, and get hit enough, I think you can wrath->entrust ->wrathwrathUSB without ninja mode dropping.

    I missed all of TGCid's new toys, but eh I have his OSB/BSB and said I was gonna dive him so I did. Haste ic3 is still useful, especially his infinite haste dealy.

    I should really invest more into legend diving. I have a fair amount of motes just collecting dust because I always hesitate to use them.... But what good are they to me if they just sit there? I've got about 500 spirit and Wis, and about 300 of the rest.

    Lots of potential dives but I have a hard time justify ing a commit!

    Who are your primary people? Spi/Wis has a TON of treasures.

    Also Bra/Dex.

    Looking at my spreadsheet to reply and I made up my mind and went no regerts with Alphinaud and Laguna to dive. We'll see how that goes.

    I was debating doing either Marche or Agrias, as well as maybe Alma but then I realized I'm a little low on 4* motes so that'll have to wait for somewhere down the road.

    No space for Protectga, and I don't know if I could get it up fast enough anyway, as Onion Knight, who would carry it, is casting his pUSB to start, so he's busy for the first ~5-8s of the fight. Not having his LMR is a bigger deal than I though.

    This is really killing my interest in the game at the moment too. Especially with the way 4* magicites are structured, and how strictly you have to follow a script to beat them. It has just started to drain a lot of my fun out of the game. I am hoping it changes going forward, but the super strict team building is just bumming me out more than anything right now.

    My sub 30 Tiamat team just rolls over dead if I don't get decent w cast lowen roar luck and a decent pattern at low HP (back to back savage twister is a guaranteed wipe)

    In other news I tried out Orlandeau USB vs Garuda 220

    Loading for the game seems really bad lately, as well. Like, my phone goes to sleep between the time I hit enter battle and the time the battle loads. I have to tap it to keep the screen from blacking out.

    Yeah, you guys complaining about 8 minute shadow dragon fights, I just spent 4 minutes doing Alma's Cid Mission, which consisted of one turn of Alma melting Argus' smug face with Neo Bahamut.

    34 second marilith, likely lots of room to improve. I was real sloppy on my entrusts, if I had been able to sneak in a Tidus USB I’d have had it

    I wonder if I could replace Rinoa (Shiva) with Alphinaud (Deployment Tactics) on an attempted Tiamat team. Tiamat puts out a lot of AOE damage I could reflect, and it's 30% attack for Squall that he's not getting with my current setup of Just Ramza, but I wonder if that's worth dropping the extra damage provided by Rinoa's chain. Even with the Chain and Dullahan, it's not easy to cap hits with Lowen Roar.

    edit:

    Nope. Non-crits drop to 6000 damage. Not acceptable.
