    At this point do we even know if we'll get the SoM event? I see little reason for them to give it to us honestly.

    I know that would suck for those folks wanting Randi, but I don't think SoM has any events or items tied to it like last time so I'm not sure why they'd give us another shot at it except 7* Randi.

    The event was a new SoM themed raid, the original SoM event was an MK grind. Only the banners included content from other SD games. If they're giving us VP apropos of nothing, I'm sure we'll get SoM as well.

    Probably the same reason we are getting VP. It's in the code already so they don't have to do as much work to push it out to us and limited time runs are where the money is at for SE. Since we can't use UoC tickets, whales gotta whale hard to get those STMR's. On the JP side, recent limited time units have all been really good (SOM, Xenogears, etc) to entice whales to pull.

    For example, Angrim's STMR is a lightning 2-handed GS. It's basically made for Hyoh, but you'd need 4 of him on a split 5* banner and he's a limited unit so no STMR. Whales going to whale hard for that one.

    Wait, Valkyrie Profile?

    Fuck. Fuck fuck fuck. My reserves are rather fucking low after spending to get 7* Terra on the banner a bit ago, but Valkyrie Profile is amazing. And of course there's the simple issue that trying to get limited units in the 7* meta is stupid. I'm assuming Lenneth is the 5* involved?

    There were 3 5* when VP hit Japan. They each got put on their own limited banner that ran for like 1-2 days solo. They also had something where each 5k lapis you spent gave them a ticket for a VP summon that required 5 tickets that I think let you pick a character? Who knows if we get the same thing.

    Unless I'm misremembering and that was Xenogears.

    I keep thinking SoM is the one they have licensing issues with, but that's Chrono Trigger. I bet we'll see SoM as you guys indicated.

    They mentioned in the FFBE Updates video that the VP collab was for the release of the VP: Lenneth mobile game. So there is a reason we are finally getting it, even if the VP mobile game has been out for a while.

    2 major advantages if they keep it the same. Each banner has a single 5* unit and all rainbows are on banner only.

    Hopefully it is on banner rainbows only, it'll be the first time we see that for a limited banner I think. Hopefully, like in JP, limited banners stay that way. I wish the Halloween banner was also on banner rainbows only.

    But no guaranteed 5* units and they are limited to 1 lap, right?

    Yeah, this setup would be perfect for the Halloween units as well. I just have a hard time imagining GUMI leaving this as is for the VP banner, let alone use it for others.

    Tiphares wrote: »

    yep, the step up is 1 lap for each of the 3 individual banners with at best a 5x rate increase. The on banner only rainbows really help with that though. Not sure if they got a step up for the final banner with all 3.

    I'm pretty excited for the datamine this week. New unit kits, 7* kits for DRain, DLasswell and GLSakura. Also looking forward to the challenge boss next week, wonder what sort of goodies we can look forward to getting there.

    I just want 7* GLS to be good. And I really hope to get my dupe GLS relatively painlessly. After that, I'll take a look and consider whether or not to pull for the new pair.

    But, as things currently stand, I might finally spend some of my hoarded Lapis.

    I think hoarded lapis should be saved for meta-changing units, but I guess it really depends on your team comp and what you need to be able to clear content.

    Hopefully she gets her own banner like last year so people actually pull on it and make some 7 stars.

    Hope she gets a ton of passives too, she'll miss out on a lot of mag using her tm. Stuck at 100 mag vs potentially stmr rods, unmatched wizardry, rod mastery, dark bond, etc.

    Yeah that's one thing that sucks with the 7* system. Characters that have weapons for TMR's tend to get screwed more than other types it seems.

    I have Awoken Rain (6*) so unless Lilith's 7* blows his 7* out of the water, then the banner is a hard pass.

    I will, however, try to get two Pirate Jakes.

    Bonus stage down, almost all missions. Only missed the second stage's supercite, so no big loss there. Went really smoothly with a team of:

    Viktor for ST tanking/breaks
    CGFina
    6* Zarg
    Malphasie
    7* M.Ramza w/16k HP and around 900DEF/SPR and 75% resist to all elements except dark. Useful for soaking all sorts of things.
    Friend Malphasie.

    M.Ramza is so good.

    Yeah, one of the reasons I don't really feel the need to pull for Lilith (also her sprite is uninspired). He's biggest weakness is dispel. So far it's only been on thresholds, which I can time. But once trials start using it more regularly, that CD is going to suck.

    I, too, completed the bonus stage. Barely any missions done because I still don't know how to fucking kill anything with an esper.

    But my team was:

    M Ramza (7*) stone throw, dispel, or ATK break.
    Basch magic cover, breaks, physical cover on the last boss.
    Ayaka (6*) healer stuff
    Tornado Barbie (7*) MP regen, tempest, tornado depending on the situation
    Estark (7*) Lordly Thrust all the things, maybe an atk break here or there.
    Friend Hyoh doing the things that Hyoh does.

    Oh yeah, it's gonna be a real pain. But for now he's rocking out pretty hard. And even then, he's a damn good provoke/physical cover tank as well so he's still very useful. I was considering moogling up Kryla's TMR for him, so he'd have 100% resist for all elements (except dark) and some extra SPR...and LB crysts to Entrust away.

    One main reason I want 1 more Zarg, his STMR is crazy good for M.Ramza. I could get him to 16K HP, 900 Def, 1000 SPR, and 125% to all elements except dark (105%).

    GLS also gets a boost to her +MAG with fire weapon and +HP with dark weapon passive. Looks like it goes up to 50% MAG with fire and 50% HP with dark, as well as 20% MP for both fire and dark (40% total) and an extra 5% MP auto refresh. And in addition to damage mod boosts, enhancements for Eldritch Flames and Soul Barrage include MP cost reduction.

    With the added MP and MP regen, they're setting GLS up to spam her abilities hard. I dig it.

    A shame they didn't enhance her MAG TDH ability, but I'll bet that she gets extra MAG TDH for using her TMR. Maybe even extra HP and SPR TDH (which she had, too). Trust ability should also include an LB boost ad her TMR has an auto limit effect.

    Yeah we don't know what all she'll get at 7*. The passives update helps with her having to use her TMR. She looks to be more MP sustainable than someone like T.Terra.

    I wouldn't be surprised if they put out the news as it's created at this point. Given how many localization they have to do, they probably get a batch done and release it, then work on the next batch.

    Also Maintenance starts 3 hours early. It'll be interesting to see if the arena changes come this patch, since they'll probably be updating the app for the Halloween theme. Also will be interesting to see if we get the 400% boost, since it came the same time as the arena changes in JP.

    Keep in mind for GLSakura enhancements, they may change her attack frames. When they've changed frames in the past it was only found after the datamine.

    The one thing I'm concerned with would be that GLS doesn't currently have chaining partners. Enhancements don't reference hit count changes, so the frames remain the same.

    However, that being said, they are releasing two new units apparantly chain with Nyx (and enhanced Yun), so I can definitely see them adding GL units eventually that could chain with GLS, whether it's Eldrictch Flames or Soul Barrage, or preferably both. Might take a while, but GLS might see chaining partners in the future.

    That's a good point. I'll wait and see, but I'm not too worried. I like GLS a lot so whether she can chain with others right away or later down the road, I'll still be happy to use her.
