    How you did it was AOSB!

    Did you bring Luneth with no SB?

    Whoops this is why I'm terrible with long posts. Luneth had USB/AOSB. My bad!

    Man, now I don't know if I want to pull OK pUSB after finally figuring out a cool rotation for Ignis. Also I just realized that Edward's USB might be even better than having mUSB since he gets songs and Allegro con Motto access...

    Onion with his mUSB is not just a buffer, but a decent mage in his own right. His mUSB has a self buff as well, and he can w-cast with dive. Adding his instacast 2 LMR, he can get your mage teams up from the word go and contribute to damage.

    yes but I could use those 30$ on a Waifu Lightning select! lol I dunno. I still haven't made up my mind on what I'm gonna grab from the select. I have a decent Earth Magic Team to bring down Behemoth King (once I've finished inheriting and leveling those magicites). Now for Water Magicites I do have a kick ass Magic Team and Chain 1 for both physical and magical but I don't have a good Lightning Physical USB. The closest I have is Lightning with AOSB and Imperil BSB. Well...I don't think Edgar USB or Prompto BSB counts.

    My OK with his 5* dive does more damage with Meltdown than Krile does with an en-fire'd Chain Firaga. He seriously pumps out damage.

  • ElderlycrawfishElderlycrawfish regular Registered User regular
    So far, Onion Knight is on all of my magic Magicite teams and a couple of the physical ones. He only gets to rest when I have a physical chain (where his buff is moot), or Ignis shenanigans.

    But in all honesty, whenever you are able to select a relic, just go with whatever makes you happy. Lots of different ways to team build and tackle content, nobody should ever feel like they have to possess a certain relic to win.

    thanks for the advice @Elderlycrawfish

    You know I haven't attempted a heavy off realm team on D280....I wonder if l should give it a shot. I feel so empowered after downing Quetz. By the way I was looking at the USB selections on FF14 and oh my that realm is a mess.

    XIV is fine. It has a coherent elemental selection (fire), the Ultras are all serviceable, and almost everybody has good legend dives. The only problem is the realm does not get enough events, so they aren't as power creeped as, say, V is.

    Assuming Hedgerows is hecateochaiasinrew do you have an Ice chain you can use with snowspell strike?

    Including a character just for ice chain to boost snow spell seems like a net loss. Maybe if I get Bartz or Sora Awakening...

    Well, I've got Elarra now, I already had her LMR so i can get medicas on casting bard abilities. *pushes up sleeves, dives her, and also dives Strago to give another random medica source*

    Time to see if I can get this team to work for Phoenix:

    Alphinaud (SSB)
    Strago (BSB, dive, dualcast LMR)
    OK (mUSB, dive, LMR)
    Elarra (USB, dive, LMR)
    <wild card, currently thinking Gogo (VI) Bubsy>

    For Phoenix?

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t it Belias that you use magic for?

    Alphonsus dive is real good if you are throwing summons. Obviously if you have him off healing it is much less exciting

  • JragghenJragghen regular Registered User regular
    As a sidenote, though, that team should have some solid buffing going on.

    OK: MAG/MND/RES (plus self-buffs for MAG)
    Strago: enWater
    Alph: ATK/MAG
    Gogo: ATK/MAG/RES

    And Elarra can carry Mage's Hymn. That should be enough to get me into the "fuck chains I'm doing 9999 per hit anyway" range, I think.

    If I can manage to handle the fucking Berserk, anyway.

    Plan E for Heck. Go back to Typhon, but don’t summon him until halfway through the fight, so as to make sure Heck has weakened Earth attacks when he starts the final phase and goes ballistic.

    Yeah, i've had him dived for a long time. He's my Ultra Cure ATM, though, and Strago's got the summons. I also have Alphinaud's USB1 in my back pocket if I decide it might make a difference, but I think he's better suited to using the SSB.

    What does Chupon do? Element attack down? That could work. Honestly I think every clear I’ve seen has had AOSB or onion push.

    Sans chain, even with triple buff, nowhere near 9999 for most folks. Triple mimic is worthwhile, though.

    Real problem is that I'm fucked without last stand on Savage Painfire.

    It would seem that what you want to do is to have him run through his entire stock of magic before the mode can murder him.

    Which, to be fair, is about the same timeframe I work with when I'm running Vivi; when his Double mode and his Trance end, he's close to dead weight anyway, and the rate of Magicite battles means I need to be wrapping up by then in any case.

    Mind you, "close to" dead weight isn't always the same as being actually dead. Vivi still can do stuff, like re-cast his Ultra or something. At least Tellah chases his death with an Overstrike?

    But man, if only it didn't kill him, this would be amazing to just cast over and over and over.

    Wow, Vivi and Tellah must be much better than Maria. It takes me 2-3 USBs to run through all her hones even with double.

    Did some pulls:

    Wind banner, 100-gem: Nada.
    Dream Select USB, 1/11: Thief BSB (dupe). Ew.
    Dream Select LMR, 1/11: Sice LMR. Got nothing else for her, but at least it's one of the more useful LMRs.
    IV-1, 100-gem: Ursula USB! Neat!

    Not sure what to get on the USB select - maybe Bartz USB1? I've already got his USB2 and Glint, though, and it's an Anima Lens possibility. Aerith USB2 is also nice, but I've got Elarra USB. Maybe Edea USB as a massive upgrade over her BSB, or Laguna's USB to pair with his chain (and an ice gun)?

    I'm also not sure what to pick for the LMR select - I was looking at Rikku's QC3 LMR, but I'm not sure how useful it'll be since she's pretty weak in most magicite battles. Ashe LMR (en-lightning) would let her go nuts with Glint/AOSB, but Seifer has his CSB/USB1 and he could really use an upgrade over his incredibly shitty LM2. Laguna's LMR (imperil ice) would also be really neat to go with his CSB and possibly his USB.

    if you're using a lot of cast time speedup it's fairly easy to dump 2x r4 spells by ~25s

  • EnlongEnlong regular Registered User regular
    Also, I didn’t mean that I’ve ever actually dumped all of Vivi’s stuff in time; just that the timeframe of one non-reactivated is roughly what I’m working with with him, since that’s about how long it takes for his Trance to expire.

    i use the entirety of an r4 waterja and r4 waterga on my belias sub-30, and he's got time to cast at least one more spell minimum before usb/trace wear out i just haven't honed for it.

    Data for posterity:
    8 misses in a row

    39/364 lifetime

    1/14 current batch

    5/95 3rd batch (5/95 is "just kill yourself" levels of bad RNG. Fuck me forever)

    14/95 2nd batch (about on EV for this batch.)

    9/65 1st batch (0.1 items below EV, which is pretty much exactly expected return, though quite a few duds even on my hits)

    Note to self: No whining, Rikku USB, never forget. Also Cloud BSB2, Mustadio USB, Water Chain (dupe), Seymour Chain, Basch USB, Nine USB, Sephiroth USB, Pecil USB1, Sice USB (twice!).

    Mateus down! Despite Locke dying to that overflow hit and all his crazy defensive buffing he folded pretty quickly in the end.

    Team was:

    Edgar - Burnt offering/Burning snipe +30% damage USB
    Snow - Armor Break/Fire within MM USB2
    Locke - 6* fire thief skill/steal armor DMT CSB
    Rosa - Wrath Battleforged USB
    Bartz - Blastspell/quadstrike TGM USB2

    Magicite was Belias

    Some 40ish seconds, but I'm pretty sure this could go way better than it did.

    Man I'm torn. Should I craft the 5hit Spellblade? I still have to farm *looks at notes* 12 more Quetz kills. I mean that extra hit could be a 10% dps boost on damage...but when will I fight another lightning earth vulnerable boss? I already have the multi element spellblades and to be honest I'm more intrigued at looking stuff for the next set of magicites.
