    No prob!

    I never fully got the hang of no healer strategies, but that one is fun.

    E: also, with some more 5* magicite, I've gotten fast enough I can use the 5* Earth ability to give him blink FWIW

    i think the only item left that could save my realms on parade from these pits of despair is garland's dark chain.

    it's been real bad.

    Was hoping for Golbez Dark Chain and the universe almost heard me - 2/3 Golbez BSB2, Ceodore USB.

    Both new but I don't picture using Ceodore for anything *throws 11th holy sword on the pile in the vault*

    It might not make a huge difference, but Ceodore's USB sword is holy and it has some mind boost. Someone like Ramza can always use more mind and +holy.

    Dupe on Parade: Golbez USB (third one for me). I'm at 9/14 dupes, this is fun*.

    Damn, drew a daily disco dupe; depressing.

    Yang USB

    Been duping out like crazy lately. I was tempted to pull on the VI banner because I have zero dupes, but I'd probably end up getting an off-banner dupe at this point.

    At least that's stats. You could be like me and drew a daily disco with a shared lightning multi-hit SB.

    Also I have now confirmed my King B clear is cleanly reproducible. The only annoying thing is that I need the AI script in front of me when doing it to avoid forgetting when to Edge USB0.

    I keep trying and failing at fire magicite. Bleh

  • rattletraprattletrap Registered User regular
    Is Belias doable with a no-healer strategy? Maybe with carbuncle on someone to deal with the berserks? I have no magic-water overstrikes, so while Famfrit will help it would seem that just absorbing the damage with Edge USB0 might be best.

  • JragghenJragghen Registered User regular
    I don't know about no healer, but belias actually takes more damage in Savage mode, so no overstrikes isn't necessarily bad.

  • FryFry Registered User regular
    I used a Raijin SSB strat to get my four copies of Belias. If you get the timing correct, you can have the center three characters take a hit with Last Stand, then Famfrit summon blocks an AOE piercing attack, then the top and bottom characters take a hit on Last Stand.

    Skipping LMR.

    RoP was dupe Luneth OSB, which gives me an 8* +wind spear, so while dupe disco sucks, that's still not bad.

    Lucky (Half) Dupe LMR draw: Lenna LMR (dupe), Orlandeau LMR

    Hey at least one of them wasn't a dupe.

    I'm assuming Orlandeau LMR is still on the new year's draw and I'll pull a ton of dupes there now, heh.

    Skipping LMR/OSB luckies and just saving for 4th Anniversary. The amount of lmrs that I would like is pretty small so it just doesn't seem worth it.

    RoP III: Aria BSB - seems like a decent heal.

    Snuck across the XV finish line with exactly 50%. Made some stupid decisions, so it can probably improve, but not sure if we're talking about 10%.

    No dives (well, 1/2 a dive), and no 6* SBs either.

    XIV: 65%, and that's with kinda mediocre dualcast luck. I'll probably be revisiting this one later. Not the least because spirit motes are my most wanted ATM.

    So that's all but 3 of the ??? past 50%

    I wonder if maybe I’d better off using Krile and Onion (Ninja) instead of Gilgamesh and Tyro for Mateus.

    Pros: Krile grants the team 3 quickcasts per Chain. If Krile gets an absurd amount of meter, she can use Brimstone to Imperil Fire. Onion casts faster during Ninja mode, the better to give meter to Relm with. Ninja Onion grants the team high crits.

    Cons: Krile is incapable of doing real damage to Mateus; Gilgamesh barely does anyway, but she’s truly crippled there. Krile’s chain isn’t as powerful as Gulgamesh’s. I would need to either drop Protectga from the team, or eschew Reflect for Flash Freeze. Krile cannot Break Defense, like Gilgamesh can; I would need either Bartz or Locke to carry Steal Defense, which sharply limits their number of actually damaging actions for the battle.

  • silence1186silence1186 Character shields down! As a wingmanRegistered User regular
    So looking at Mateus, I'm probably bringing Aerith USB2 to heal, Krile with Chain (and BSB2), and possibly OK pUSB to Entrust Bot. But for damage there's a host of options, but any of them involves committing to spending some Rubies, so I'd like to list them and get opinions.

    Locke LD, LMR, AOSB, USB1, USB2, Glint. Could carry Steal Defense. Would need a R3-4 Fire Assault. Also good for the FF6 Torment, and maaaaybe the FF9, 11, 12, 14 and 15 Torments, though most of those are a stretch.

    Edgar LD, USB, LMR1 or Cid (XIV) LD, USB Would need a R3 Heat Offer. Also good for the FF6 and FF14 Torments, and maybe the FF12. Edgar gets more chances to Imperil, Cid hits harder.

    Bartz LD, USB1, LMR. Could carry Steal Defense. I have a R3 Blastspell Strike, or I could splurge for a R3-4 Inferno Assault. Not sure Inferno Assault would see much else use. Maybe the FF6 Torment.

    Yda LD, USB, BSB, LMR. Could carry Armor Breakdown. Would need a R4 Fire Ironfist. Would be useful on the FF14, and maybe FF1, FF3 or FF5 Torments.

    Tidus chain plus USB
    Tyro ultra wall, wrath entrust
    Wakka USB
    Bartz BSB-W and USB
    Elarra USB and BSB
    RW priestess
