    Rinoa SSB En-Earth and OSB do not appear to be enough to kill Hyrda... even with two healers. That might be a facet of the RNG giving me too many Savage Thundaga's back to back, but I made it to 50+ seconds...

    That's one really dumb thing about Magicites; the difficulty increases relative to time elapsed, as opposed to as the boss' health goes down. The idea that there's rewards you can get for a sub 1:30 clear and sub 2:00 clear are absurd, unless you're running 4 healers and damage reflect.

    So I can pull on one of these. My choices are probably squall bsb2, Maria osb, or shadow lmr. I have squall’s lmr, maria bsb, and shadow’s usb and I can’t decide which of those will be most useful. I technically sub-30ed Tiamat but it required a lot of luck so that could help. I haven’t figured out ixion yet, and my physical dark team is strong, but I’m not sure if it’s strong enough to sub-30 the holy magicite without a chain.

    Usually a 100k OSB is fine for clearing 3* magicite if you set it up properly. Did you give Rinoa Gathering Storm? Who are your healers?

    Tyro's level 99 RM is +30% weakness damage, it is my go-to RM for mages (assuming I'm not using Devotion).

    IIRC Rinoa's SSB armor boosts earth damage, so you probably want to equip that if you aren't already

    Can you fit a Faith in there? When I was doing Mage OSBs in 3* you need another layer of buffs somewhere.

    My Golem team is still set as:
    Y'shtola - Curada - Wall - MM
    Mog - Curaja/Faith - BSB - DMT
    Fujin - Raging Storm/Meltdown - OSB - LMR/LM2 - TGC
    Entrust 1 - Ace Striker

    Roughly 6 months (we got the first one a bit late, if I remember correctly), if we do get it.

    We got the previous WOFF event, but this one apparently gets some references to the mobile game spinoff (the event title is "the infinite worlds of Valgallan", which is a thing from Meli-Melo) and there's some precedent for us having trouble getting stuff that is based on Japan-only mobile game content (Morrow and Meia come to mind). Which would be a shame, since the characters added with the event are both from the base game.

    The character in question is Enna Kros, who starts up the plot of WOFF by telling Lann and Reynn who they really are (on what initially appears to be a routine day at the coffee shop where they work) and telling them how to go to the world of Grymoire. She's god, or so she says when asked.

    Move Thunder God Mode to Rinoa. Put Mana's Paean on Rikku (or Faith on Selphie, but not both). Give Y'shtola Battleforged and give her a copy of Wrath dor her empty slot (R2 might be fine). Maybe swap Curada and Curaja. Try to give Rinoa Meltdown, Titan, or both if you can.

    The biggest problem, though, is that neither of your buffers is Support 5. I always had double entrusts for these setups.

    I was not aware of the existence of WOFF. I think I'd see some of the chibi stuff on youtube or somewhere else, but didn't realize it was an actual game.

    Was so angry after that dumb pull that I honed all the earth shit and sub-30ed ixion with edge and bartz. 28.28.

    So 6/6 sub-30s. The frustrating thing is that the pulls I bought never got me anything that helped, all the stuff for every sub-30 was free except Edge ssb from the select draw.

    Given how much money I’ve spent on 11 pulls that’s pretty alarming.

    Might be something to remember when the option of spending money comes up.

    This is why I pulled 3 times on the ice/lightning banner. I have 10 different non-rs lightning boost weaps now, of which 3 are triple combined so that's 14.

    Earth ninja does a silly amount of damage. I assume there's a Bartz USB in there, which also does a silly amount of damage. And Ixion has significantly less HP than the other 4* magicites, presumably to help make up for the bullshit dispels.

    I'm wondering if I should use my LMR and OSB selects ALSO for Squall, just to improve the consistency of my Tiamat kill. It requires a surprisingly large amount of concentration, more than any of my other kills, because if you miss if Guts went off, or refresh Guts early, you will wipe, 100%.

    For the LMR, since Tyro isn't an option, and there don't appear to be many +element pieces available to choose. Initial EnIce would buff his first three SSS by quite a bit, and he might cap on his initial BSB2 entry.

    For the OSB, I'm more reluctant, since there's a lot of good +element items. Right now I'm thinking Gladio OSB (+fire sword), Vayne OSB (+dark ATK/MAG sword), or Raines OSB (+dark glove, plus I would probably use it sometimes).

    I think I might be able to scrape up enough mythril for the stat buff lucky banner before it ends, but I still can't decide if it's worth it.

    If the lists match up with the JP draw, I've got about 11/45. I've got none of the usbs though so there's that.

    I'm trying to avoid doing the paid OSB and lmr draws as well, but it can be pretty easy to talk myself into a pull, it seems.

    Not to be a dick, but if you have Sub 30 on all 6 4* Magicite, that may be the reason you aren’t pulling many game changing relics, you are already very stacked and can literally only pull marginal improvement.

    If you are buying into hype and pulling for specific relics, yeah, that is the path to the darkside of disappointment.

    Repeating my Tiamat kill was proving to be a PITA, so I retooled it a bit. I still killed it, but I'm getting slower. OTOH, while the kill had perfect Absorb Magic/Strength luck, Squall didn't W-cast his BSB2 command 2 once, so I'm wondering if it's a below average run? Definitely not a consistent sub-30s, even if it's theoretically possible. Squall is even carrying Bartz's RM2 for the extra W-cast chance, since his C2s were capping anyway.

    Also re-ordering my team so Raijin is last and I can input everyone's commands with instant cast more easily.

    New Tiamat squad:
    Rinoa Chain Blizzaga/Faith (Chain) DMT (LMR)
    Squall SSS/<nothing> (BSB2) W-cast (LM1, 2)
    Ramza Wrath/Entrust (Throw Stones) Ace Striker (LMR)
    Shelke Wrath/Entrust (No SB) Battleforged (LM1, 2)
    Raijin <nothing> (SSB) MM
    Wendigo/Raider

    I just want to easily farm up a bunch of Wind Magicite and power level them. Blargh.

    Yeah, it was pretty frustrating. I failed a couple runs this morning because of turn skipping to try and get people to use their instants before Raijin rebuffed but used up so much fucking time because of the UI disappearing constantly that I didn't get the rebuff in time and got splattered.

    If my skim is accurate, 20/42 dupes on the stat buff draw, including 2/7 of the 6*. that's a skip, especially compared to the healer draw.

    Alt pull 4/11: Porom BSB, Vivi BSB2 (dupe), Curilla BSB, Curilla USB

    I think the game wants me to use Curilla.

    Not enough mythril in the main account, have a few days to decide if I want to chance it.
