    I went and pulled everything except Terra glint and Yuffie BSB2, took 7 pulls (2 with mythril)

    Neither of those relics are necessary (Terra has better things to do with her gauge and I can pick up Yuffies on a select)

    Typed up asking for advice on where/how to pull, talked myself into another go because this definitely has the best odds of something useful.

    Second 1/11 5*. Fuck off, game.

    Yuffie Glint. Another good item, but just disappointing to toss 100 mythril into this banner and get 2 5* for it.

    How's this ability boost thing work again?

    Fuck yeah, complete Yuffie other than the Glint. Tidus chain continues to escape me, but I'll have to deal.

    Can I trade you

    I have a lot of extra Tidus chains

    still technically have one leftover after I took the first one to 6++

    Fuck it, victory lap pull.

    1/11 - Yuffie AOSB

    I don't know what's more disgusting, these pulls, or the fact that this banner is still almost worth more pulls after four major hits. Two good chains, Yuffie glint, Terra LMR, and a few passable consolation prizes.

    Well, 12 mythril left. By the time they go away, I can either do both luckies if they're curated, one and the realm lucky because I'm stupid, the last 5 realms on parade draws with any of the above, or roll the dice on a second 33 draw.

    Ninja Ability Boost: R1/2/3/4/5 -> Ninja Damage +5/10/15/20/30%

    Oh. That uh... That's better than I thought. Not sure it warrants a dive by itself (well, with her burst I guess) when I've already got Edge and Shadow dived (with BSB+LMR+USB0, and BSB+USB, respectively), and she can't compete with either one of them without a dive :/

    If all you have is her glint? Yeah I'd shy away from diving her unless you really have to sub 30 Maliris and Ixion

    Well, I have her imperil water burst, too, which isn't bad, but doesn't really adjust the equation any. So she'd definitely be better for helping on Maliris than Shadow, but only as a second ninja to Edge, which would take a SERIOUS dark/ice orb investment first.

    Ixion is the only 4* I've already got sub-30, though, so no need there :p

    I guess the one other thing is the increased +ninja damage makes her the piercing magic ninja of choice, as the boost can replace a +element gear, effectively.

    Also I just realized I've been typing Maliris as Marilis all this time.

    Two banner 5 pulls, 100 gem, and the second 33, ‘cause I’m a sucker.

    5/11, 2/11, rainbow, and 5/33.
    5/11: double Tidus glove dupes, double yuffie BSB dupes. Ugh. And Terra Glint. Ok...
    2/11: Terra ASB, Tidus glove dupe. Already have Terra USB... now we’re talkin’.
    Rainbow: Terra BSB. Hey now!
    5/33: Sarah BSB, Terra OSB, and HOLD ON WAIT A MINUTE I got the one OSB I really wanted in the whole damn game.

    And now Terra will not make her enemies run before her screaming in terror. For she shall burn the whole world to ash. I come for you, Isgebind. And there is nowhere for you to flee.

    The one plus for yuffie's dive is that yuffie is in a trash bucket. Onion is the only other character worth diving in brv/wis.

    Pulled twice, first pull was 1/11 Terra glint feels bad.

    Second was 2/11 1 disco, yuffie USB BSB, so that was awesome. Out of myth

    The problem there is that SPI/BRV is even worse. So with nothing to balance it out every WIS/BRV dive is essentially one fewer WIS/SPI you can do, and that's an excellent category.

    we are missing 100 spi motes from the first sephiroth event, you so you get one extra wis/brv dive anyway if you want to balance out that part of the chart. and marche and beatrix both have doublecast dives in spi/brv so you can make it work.

    The 100 brave motes you would be counting on would then have to come magically from somewhere and we're not that imbalanced in that direction.

    With rounding we're at 900/900/900/1000/900 for motes--or 1xx/1xx/1xx/2xx/1xx into 3rd rotation. The missing 100 spirit motes doesn't matter yet.

    Had four dupes going into this - Tidus CSB, Krile CSB, Tidus LMR, Terra LMR. So far, my luck has been pretty good about avoiding dupes. I'm going hard on this banner for the waifu factor.

    3/11 - Yuffie BSB2, Yuffie BSB2 (dupe), Tidus LMR (dupe). That's two dupes already, but I guess I could always use another +water armor.
    1/11 - Terra GSB. At least it's +fire MAG armor.
    2/11 - Krile LMR, Krile LMR (dupe). Another +fire MAG armor? Why not! Krile now has en-fire, which she sorely needs.
    1/11 - Terra BSB2. Terra's now my designated third mage for long fights, plus yet another +fire MAG armor.
    2/11, two discos (!) - Terra ASB, Yuffie USB2! Hell yeah, jackpot!

    Somehow, I managed to avoid any dupes of preexisting equipment besides that one Tidus LMR, and the new stuff is all usable. My Terra is now packing her USB/ASB/BSB2/GSB, while Yuffie's got her USB/USB2/BSB/BSB2. Time to burn the world and then drown it!

    yea, they're coming from brv/vit because it's a trash bucket with at all 1 viable dive.

    i'd rather have 100 extra vit motes with nothing to spend them on and have another doublecast ninja than literally any other dive in brv/vit except shelke.

    edit: unless i missed motes somewhere that i don't remember, i currently have 100 more wis than spirit, and have dived 5 spi/wis and 1 each of wis/brv and spi/brv which doesn't match your numbers. not sure what's different.

    I don't think that's quite the correct memetic reference, though you're correct that FF1 certainly has its share of plot holes and spelling errors.

    Isgebind cried yield. Mostly, just cried. A stacked Terra with 569 unbuffed magic roasts Isgebind like a potato in under 30. First try, right through, in 27:34. No chain, no Onion mUSB. Terra got the ice/paralyze resist accessory. That’s 3 sub-30... lightning is at 31 seconds.

    Terra Meltdown / Sudden Thunder / USB, OSB / LD / 30% weakness
    Onion Smoldering Fire / Faith / BSB / MM
    Shelke Entruster DMT
    Ramza Entruster LMR
    Eiko USB / LD
    RW Unicorn

    The one real trick that took me a S/L to get right is that you need to put off Onion BSB until after Sudden Thunder goes off. Also, turned out that it helps to cast Eiko’s USB before each landing... but that may just be obvious.

    Jeez, I can't believe how greedy I'm feeling right now. I got almost everything I wanted on this banner, and yet I'm still side-eyeing Yuffie's Glint because of how much better it would make her off-element. But then maybe that's a silly thing to care about when I don't have chains for the physical ninja elements anyway.

    Welp, did the second 33 pull for mega regret and sorrow

    5/11: dupe seifer SSB garbage, dupe Orlandeau BSB, dupe Iris BSB, dupe Squall bsb2, Edward USB

    That was an even bigger waste than the first 33 pull. Oh well, serves me right.

    Edward USB seems like a strong prize. Pair it with Mage's Hymn, and he can greatly buff a Mage team's damage all on his own. Then pair that with Mana's Paean, Full Break, Entrust, Affliction Break, Enveloping Etude, Angelsong, or Allegro Con Moto, depending on the fight.

    The best use case seems ACM+Mage's Hymn but I'm not sure if I'm sold on that use of a character slot.

    Comparison's sake, would you ever really want to field him over OK BSB/mUSB just Wrath/Entrusting? Maybe if all you have is Mages who don't have self-buffs but do have good meter gen...but that style of mage I feel tends to already get fastcast to compensate.

    Perhaps I wouldn't field him over Sage USB, but that's just because Sage USB adds one extra turn of fastcast over Hero's Rime. Otherwise they're pretty comparable. Especially if you're going for Entrust (and Edward can also do that), as then Onion isn't getting any benefit from his EX Mode.

    I would absolutely field Edward USB over Onion BSB for a Mage team if both would be Entrusting, as it grants 2 turns of fast magic.

    My Isgebind team uses Tyro with ACM/Mage's Hymn and no Entrusters, and RWs Raider as the second faithga. It absolutely works.

    And I did a Stage 5 pull this morning, had one of my 4 year olds push the button this time.

    2/11. disco.

    Yuffie AOSB.
    Terra Glint.

    My first Arcane, woo. Yuffie looks like a nice character to have around, so I'll probably start building her up. Thief/Ninja/Dancer/Sharpshooter, fun.
    The name of the SB does crack me up. Freewheeling Bloodfest. That sounds painful... but in a fun way?
