    Is Ignis's TMR worth using a blank container on if you have his TMR moogle?

  • LuvTheMonkeyLuvTheMonkey High Sierra Serenade Registered User regular
    It seems neat? A somewhat different version of Rikku's Pouch. I'd keep the named container I guess if I had it.

    What I'm asking is if I should farm enough currency to buy one of Ignis' TMR moogles so that I can use it on a blank container when those come to GL.

    Hard no. Maybe the biggest no possible. Moogle Containers are RARE. The only ways to get them, outside of special anniversary type events, is to be in the top 500 (I think) of their updated Arena challenge or use 10,000 mixer coins (for reference, that's two UoC's worth).

    When I was thinking about whether I wanted to pull on this banner, initially it seemed interesting. Being able to load up heal and mp heal/refresh on anyone could have it's uses. However, I don't think it's as useful as Rikku's pouch and the former is on a 4* unit, not 5*; so I decided against it. Given how hard and rare the mixer items will be, if we even get it (remember they didn't really like UoC tickets), it's defiantly a hard no.

    Moogle Containers are for big, potentially meta-changing or meta-reinforcing TMRs from time limited units. Like, I have a 100% Moogle for TF29 agent which will be a strong contender in the future when we catch up to some JP's TDW unit powerup. I have a 100% Moogle for Unmatched Wizardry, which could potentially see use for a Hybrid unit like OGFryevia or Aurora Fryevia.

    I'd never even consider using a Moogle Container on a TMR for a unit that's still in the pool.

    (also sidenote for those of you with a Randi - they do have a 7* upgrade prism for Randi in the Mixer store, so if you whiff on him there's still hope, albeit expensive hope that you have to wait even more for)

    Is Randi still good in the Hyoh meta?

  • LuvTheMonkeyLuvTheMonkey High Sierra Serenade Registered User regular
    7* Randi is arguably better than Hyoh

    Also, man Hasiko's Revenge is a slog with physical damage dealers. But once you get an opportunity to break ATK/MAG, she's a cakewalk.

    Randi can chain with DR, QH, and Piledriver+2 families. He can use a ton of elements innately, but lacks his own imperils, which is the mirror of what Hyoh does. Randi is also a W-Ability T/DH unit and generally matches Hyoh.

    Two things make Randi able to push out more damage. One, his TMR ability makes his LB buff his ATK by 300%, which is bonkers. The other thing is Randi can use FD. Still, if you dislike FD he can still pump out crazy damage and chain with a number of families/elements.

    Stuck on mobile for the weekend with limited time too so it's hard to search, where is the next fan Festa with the fryevia, and who lives nearby with an army of friends to collect tickets on behalf of everyone too far to go? 😊

    Aurora Fryevia. She's a Light Hybrid version of Fryevia. TMR is 30ATK/MAG robes with +10%ATK/MAG. STMR is a two-handed Hybrid Sword, stats TBD. Her sprite is also TBD. Neat.

    Announcement video:
    Do you actually have to go to get the in game stuff, or is it redeemed with a code on your ticket or something?

    The website for the festa says you need to have a ticket and also you need to go to be eligible.

  • Magus`Magus` Registered User regular
    That's a major waste of potential income. Gumi doesn't make more money by people showing up. Lots of people would spend $25 to get a good character which in no way reduces Gumi's profits.

    It's dumb.

    They should have digital all access pass at the least, with access to the events of the day and the units. You could even charge slightly more for it than a physical ticket and you'd make BANK.

  • LorekLorek Registered User regular
    I was also interested in maybe getting a ticket and not going as a pseudo virtual ticket, so I did some digging. I'm pretty confident it won't work :x

    Firstly it says on the site you have to be present to get all the stuff. Second, apparently the fan festa units were only given if you showed up. Your Player ID would be attached to the ticket and it would get scanned at the door. Only after it got scanned would the unit appear in your mailbox.

    So the real question is... are there any PAers in the area who are going that want to go in and out with a bunch of our tickets? Lol

    And? They don't charge a door fee.

    Edit: You meant people who want to go wouldn't get in. Good point. I agree with the digital pass noted above.

    TF29 agent's 60% atk is okay, but the 20% TDW will be powercreeped as soon as TDW is raised to 200%. Excluding innate TDW, you'll need 10 of those 20% materia or equipment in order to reach the cap. I'm guessing higher TDW will be released eventually, at which point TF29 will become expedition gear.

    Only if we keep getting GLEX TDW boosting stuff. The only TDW boosting stuff on JP side are all STMRs. So far we have one materia and one accessory. Unless you are flush in STMRs, TF29 is going to be useful for a long time, especially if you have the weapon types to get the full 60% ATK.

    Useful if you don't have TDH, I suppose. Until we get JP's TDW buff, TDH is the way to go. Now that Dual Wield Mastery is a thing in JP, I expect to see more TDW materia and gear. By the time DWM comes to GL, JP will be a year ahead. Instead of using our blank containers for a year-old materia, we'll be saving it for higher percentage TDW gear.

    Don't get me wrong. I wish TF29 was useful in the TDH meta. I have one and I've never used it. Not once. I have yet to come across a scenario where I'm forced to use a DW unit capable of using those specific weapon-types. This MK event comes close (Noctis), but the fire element requirement threw a wrench in that. Not to mention, only fist and sword have decent mastery materia, and Dark Knight's Soul has a Heavy Armor requirement.

    That's fair. We'll just have to wait and see. I mean, this is all theoretical anyway. The actual work involved in getting a Moogle Container is ridiculous, to the point where they don't practically exist (until the third anniversary, where we get a super low chance to pull them with special tickets).

    While I on the other hand kinda wish I had another TF29, because I do not have any TDH stuff at all, and even if I did I don't have any character with double-ability so that I'd want to make them into a TDH fighter, but I do have plenty of dual wielders who could use a boost.

    Plus, well. The only characters currently out that use a TDH build that I'm aware of which I'd allow into my team would be, like, Olive or Tidus, and I have zero of either, so...

    Well, Ignis has three problems keeping people from pulling for him.

    1. No step-up
    2. Came after Hyoh and Malphasie
    3. His buffs aren't that much better than MSNichol/SSNichol.

    With 7* being a thing I would assume holiday banners would get a step-up or something similar. I want to throw another 5k at the Malphasie step-up but am trying to stay strong for Randi/holiday things.

    Holidays have also had decent Lapis bundles in the past, but with how bundles have been lately that seems less likely for this year.

    Edit: we have no idea when Fryevia 7* is coming. Aurora Fryevia is "next year"

    Other than the fountain I haven't spent any money on this game, so if I spend my last 25k it will be some months before I can build it back. But it may well be some months before a sprite I want as much as Mal comes around on a step-up. Unless 7* D.Rain is good and on a step-up. Then :(

    Took down Hasiko's Revenge finally. I still contend that it's too obnoxious, if not actually difficult. If you can get her attack stats broken it's easy, but it can be pretty annoying to make sure you have the MP to stop her. I geared up my Lotus Mage Fina to have enough for a Manatopia cast, then was able to break the boss. The rest was just wearing her down.

    Also, I finally got around to taking down the Marlboro Rumble fight. Well, I say"I" but it really the friend 7 star Trance Terra, but whatever. Got the whip for my Livid Shanatto, to help clobber the raid fight even faster.

    D. Rain might end up a pretty awesome 7*. His enhancements brought him from being a joke 6* to being pretty good. I've seen a few videos with him and he's really good at what he does. Admittedly, he has a fairly niche role, being a taunt and counter attack tank. But they can add extra tank stuff to him, like how Wihelm gets an AoE cover at 7*, add some DEF / SPR / HP and you've got a competitive tank unit.

    What I'd really like to see at some point is a 5* - 7* unit with abilities like I.Nichol. I love I. Nichol's kit, but he's going to be used less and less as we get deeper into the 7* meta.

    I'm still on the Zarg train myself. I have one Seaside Nichol, and a second would convince me to use him. He lacks offensive buffs. but his defensive buffs are amazing and my offensive units mosty self-buff their offensive stats anyway.

    Ignis would be an upgrade for me, but not enough of one to pull for. Ignacio, however, he's one I'm gonna pull for.
