    So with the arena changes coming next week, there's a really good chance we're getting the 400% passive increase too, since it came with the same app update.

    Been running my units in the FFBE Equip calculator with the 400% passive checkbox on to see what TMRs I can possible be on the look out for now.
    Made an interesting discovery...
    Hyoh's BiS is dual wielding now, thanks to our GL exclusive TDW gear.
    Who knew.
    With STMR - http://ffbeEquip.com/builder.html?server=GL#2b958c60-cd7c-11e8-a3d0-07fd811772ef
    Without STMR - http://ffbeEquip.com/builder.html?server=GL#5e22d520-cd7c-11e8-a3d0-07fd811772ef

    All because we don't have a fire or lightning based two-handed greatsword yet.

    I need more mag items, I have too many mages I like running. But this *should* get my rem to 1400 or better mag I think, have to wait till I get home to see.

    I still don't use zarg but man, he's gonna be real useful for certain situations.

    From what I read on reddit, her max should increase to 10.6x now. Since it's 6 times of 1.1x increase.

    Zargabaath x4 or x5

    Edit: Prolly at least unlock all the 7*s and merge the STMRs as 7*s... but will likely only max out Barbie and Zwarge to 120. Maybe Eiko too. Eventually. When I have gold again.

    Depends on the situation. CG Nichol at best can dual cast MP heal for 40 a pop or 80 total. It is AoE so it hits everyone. Zarg has 50% heal and 150 refresh but it's ST.

    For example, my 7* T.Terra has 800+ MP and 4x cast of one of the elemental CW's costs 321MP. So Zarg's MP heal would get T.Terra 400MP back.

    Can anyone link to the macro's for merging cactuars on Nox? I'm going to have a ton from the raid and MK event. With 7* Barb, Zarg, Rem, etc, I'd like to maximize all I can.

    https://www.reddit.com/r/FFBraveExvius/comments/96t087/collection_of_memu_and_nox_macros_1280x720_and/

    Keep track of how that macro is merging things. I discovered that the macro was merging level 1 cactuars to a level X cactuar, without chaining them for great/amazing bonuses. I still don't know whether it's designed that way or I fucked up somehow.

    [edit] https://www.reddit.com/r/FFBraveExvius/comments/96kd46/cactuar_fusion_macro_20_memu_nox/

    I think this is the same macro, but I'm adding it for completion's sake.

    That was likely an issue with sorting - I use the same macro and it works correctly. The sort on the Unit to Enhance needs to be by level Ascending, and the sort on the Material Units needs to be by level Descending (along with all of the filters Sio mentions). Note that technically the Nox macros are unsupported as its macro language is not nearly as good as Memu's.

    Thanks both of ya. I'll look this over, last time with a back to back like this it took me hours to merge. Don't want to do that again.

    Yeah, I've definitely noticed CG Nichol cannot keep up with the 7* heavy hitters/Juicers like TT and Hyoh. Although not much should last past too many quad casts, sounds like Zarg's definitely pulling ahead.

    I actually made the switch to Memu specifically because of that macro. On Nox it worked but took some babysitting as it wouldn't always select the right unit. Memu has been flawless (and gives me better framerates as well).

    Cactuar fusion macro doesn't work for me. I got all the settings right. I think it's a Nox issue. I'm going to upgrade Nox. See if I can get it to work.

    [edit] I would switch to Memu, but I have Nox customized the way I want it. All my macros are there.

    for nox i just made sure my ascending and descending units were in and just recorded my own macro and loop it 20 times. it works well enough till it maxes a unit and then it'll go back to the unit overview screen but I usually do that when I'm watching a movie so I catch it. It's slow but considering I do that usually in my downtime before bed, it's no problem.

    I"ve been tempted to jump to Memu a few times now but other than the crashing occasionaly from nox I haven't really been buggered to outright switch.

    Installed Memu. This was a huge hassle. And I'm running the risk of losing orbs before I finish setting things up and fusing all the cactuars. And for some dumb reason, memu got installed to the D drive, which was a huge hassle to figure out and is going to fuck up my back up solution.

    [edit] Also, how do I get memu to go back to the default screen size after I accidentally shrunk it? How do I put the macro recording button on the right shortcut menu instead of hidden in a submenu? Can I back-up the entire memu installation folder, uninstall the program, reinstall it on the C drive, and replace the new installation folder with my backup? Will it fuck shit up, is my question?

    [edit] Oh my fucking god. Where did the operation record window go? Why is it gone? How do I stop the macro from running?!

    You can pretty easily just make a cactuar fusing macro. I made my own when they first came out and regularly make my own for things like raid summons and ticket summoning.

  • urahonkyurahonky Registered User regular
    It doesn't really take all that much time to fuse the cactuars anymore so I haven't really bothered with it.

  • CruorCruor Registered User regular
    Fusing cactuars is such a meditative experience for me. I do it pretty regularly since I only have 540 unit slots. Maybe after I dump lapis chasing 7*Randi I'll use whatever the left-over amount is on upgrading slots.

    Oh that's right. No I just select a cactaur, and select all cactaurs and then merge.

    Chain fusing is the light. I had like, three maxed King Minituars after leveling my M.Ramza. From the recent raids since he was released, I'm back up to 17 maxed Kings before buying any of the MK shop Kings.

    If we ever get another fusing EXP boost event (I expect one around Christmas/the fan festa) then you'd be a fool not to chain fuse/level up your remaining 7* units.

  • urahonkyurahonky Registered User regular
    I don't have the kinda time to do it otherwise lol. I'm willing to lose the extra exp. Besides I really don't have any characters that I NEED to level.

    I don't understand what it means. Does it fuse one cactaur at a time?

  • LuvTheMonkeyLuvTheMonkey High Sierra Serenade Registered User regular
    It does indeed chain fuse to maximize experience gains.

    It automates cactuar-chaining.

    For anyone unaware, you get more exp by fusing

    Cactuar A into Cactuar B
    Cactuar B into Cactuar C
    Etc.

    In practice, you keep selecting level 1 cactuars as your base and selecting the higher level cactuar as the cactuar that'll disappear. It's a giant pain in the ass, but every time you get a Great or Amazing bonus, you're essentially getting that bonus for every single cactuar in the chain. When you get a second bonus, the bonuses are multiplicative.

    The macro automates the process.

    Did you build your own macro? or use pre-made? I might give it a shot tomorrow.

    Spent way too much time screwing around with Switch Controls on iOS. I was able to get one that works 50% of the time on slot 2 and 5 right off the bat. Then just couldn't get slot 3 and 6 to work. Really wish GUMI would put a menu toggle like animations that would put a 1 or 2 second delay on your commands.

    I used the one I linked earlier. Hence my need to install Memu. Doesn't work with Nox. At least, not on my version and with my settings.

    [edit] And I found that my connection was stable enough for me to run the macro as 2x speed. Saved me a couple of hours.

    [edit] I got 16 maxed cactuar from this venture. Would have gotten more if I had done it manually, but the automation is worth one of two maxed cactuars.

    I just made mine. Basically record selecting the base, select empty spot, select first cactuar, select fuse, click two slow times to fast foward to skip, click skip, click Back.

    Loop basically for 15 or 20 times. usually I'll get one great in that loop though sometimes its the first couple so not a huge exp jump and doesn't really save me much in extra cactuars. Not much else, just when the cactuar maxes it goes back to the select base screen and that's when my macro hits back and goes to the over view screen which is when I stop it, and then restart.

    I got it to work with Nox, but I had to tweak the location of one of the clicks manually. It was jussst missing the "Change base unit" button, which caused it to fuse level 1's into the just leveled cactaur.

    I normally fuse 5 at a time to start then just merge them while watching something on TV. Might see how much effort it is to record my own. Not really good with Nox's macro recorder lol.

    EDIT: I need as many as I can get. While the chamber of XP helps get characters to 110, I have at least 4 or 5 7*'s I'd like to level.
