    It's actually the normal amount - his takes half the number normal spheres do, if memory serves.

    ...omg my life is a lie.

    Ixion sub-4.

    ...great, now I really want Bartz's LMR, again.

    I have all of this aside from Ramza USB, so I may try it at some point.

    Actually no, I was wrong. They all take 75 motes too.

    I could have sworn.

    Haha, Faris's Glint is an improved version of her old unique Soul Break, Sea Lord's Broadside. Power creep, yo.

    I feel kinda weird not wanting to pull on an FFV banner, particularly one loaded with cool and flavorful new tech. The blurse of foresight, I guess.

  • 38thDoe38thDoe lets never be stupid again wait lets always be stupid foreverRegistered User regular
    This banner sure seemed a lot better six months ago I’ll tell you.

    ...huh. Looks like I forgot to do the Cid Missions on the FFXIII event. Looking at the team I had been building, I plumb forgot to do those two fights at all.

    Oh well! At least I didn't forget the stuff with mythril. Orbs come and go.

    I'm kinda stacked for old XI relics, but I enjoy the RoP dailies so

    2/3: Prishe BSB (dupe), Curilla USB1

    ....nice, buff and radiant for a realm that could definitely use it. Plus I snagged her USB2 during the last XI event so she's got some nice utility to bring to the table. (Also have her healing/esuna SSB so even more so)

    I vaguely remember when Gluttony Swords were the must-have for up and coming tanks in XI. I don't think I could afford one at the time, hah!

    XI: 1/3, no disco. Curilla BSB. Not a dupe, though it won't beat out her USB1 unless I really need Sentinel for some reason.

    Shantotto Chain. Iridal Staff.

    Lightning again.

    Is there a mote dungeon that is Lightning?

    Zeid BSB. And guess what, it was what I needed to clear d280 Torment. Pretty happy with that pull. It helps that he's got access to Heavy Combat.

    Holy shit this 260 CM is stupid as hell.

    Edit: Finally beat the damned thing after ten tries. It took a legit V fire team with Gilgamesh's CSB to beat him down. I've never been so glad to have Faris's BSB2.

    I am quitting 100 gem pulls... until Rainbow shards go live. Better to get rainbow powder than gil, at this point. Same deal with LotR pulls.

    I keep hoping to get a daily hit that blows open the magicite I'm working on and I haven't had a daily hit in weeks now.

    You can have the shared soulbreak light armor I got. Does a whole single water attack. It's even a dupe, because I remember pulling this way back in the day.

    Is that the Viking Coat? I remember that thing! I recall pulling it off of an actual banner, and realizing that the person I most wanted to use it on was... Wakka. Whose default soul break is the same damn move.

    I just reviewed my log of daily draw hits (I started a log of all my relic draws back when they updated the daily draws, to help answer the question of "when the heck did I get this?")

    Last daily draw hit: 13 days ago (Bartz LMR2)
    Last potentially useful daily draw hit: 2/8/19 (Lulu Arcane)
    Last hit I've actually used for its SB: never (I've used a couple for stat sticks, but I haven't gotten around to using the 2-3 potentially useful SBs I've drawn)

    Basically, I wouldn't count on the daily draw to help you with any particular magicite. :X

    One fun thing this tracking has done is help me compare how the Realms on Parade draws have been going every festival.
    September 2018: 6 very useful items out of 17
    December 2018: 5 very useful items + 1 potentially useful item out of 17
    March 2019: ??? (not doing them until after the rainbow shards update)

  • 38thDoe38thDoe lets never be stupid again wait lets always be stupid foreverRegistered User regular
    A man can dream, a man can dream.

    Also Belias critical hits is so much fun. So much fun.

    Speaking of dailies, I just got a dupe Barret SSB. Whoo :p

    Had some trouble with Manticore yesterday, so I decided i'd give Typhon a try and managed to down him in 25secs!

    Strange fight, but not that hard or random once you get the hang of it. Nevermind that, apparently I can go too fast and mess it all up.

    The team was:

    Serah CSB
    Lulu USB2/AOSB
    OK BSB
    Matoya USB
    Elarra USB

    If you don't need them to beat the DPS checks, I highly recommend removing all of your doublecast LMs for Chupon, just to make things more consistent. That looks very similar to my team, but I have Rinoa USB/AOSB instead of Lulu, Shantotto USB instead of Matoya, and Shelke instead of Onion.

    That fight is so consistent and low-stress that it has become my go-to farm for weekly/monthly missions.

    That seems so counter-intuitive, but i'll give it a go. I don't think I got very many doublecasts at all in the run where I offed him.

    Does anyone think we'll get the 40 draw that comes with this fest, or did we use it up when KH arrived?

  • EnlongEnlong Registered User regular
    Didn’t Japan also get 2 40-pulls for KH?

    Theirs was linked to the introduction of a new feature, draw tickets, I believe.

  • EnlongEnlong Registered User regular
    I think the understanding was that we got the same draws, just not connected to tickets because those don’t exist yet.

  • MaytagMaytag Registered User regular
    Worked like a charm @Fry, thanks for the tip! 27 seconds, but super stable.

    I think so, the 40x draw was connected to Legendary weapons and here's some crap to mulch for shards. Otherwise we'd be unprepared.

  • EnlongEnlong Registered User regular
    Technically, we’re better prepared regardless. Because we know that there will be a second wave of legendary weapons that are better choices for rainbow shards, so we won’t spend as much on the Realm Synergy-focused ones.

  • 38thDoe38thDoe lets never be stupid again wait lets always be stupid foreverRegistered User regular
    They knew that too. It is in the legendary weapon announcement when it comes. I was talking about FFRK in general not just Reddit etc

  • ElderlycrawfishElderlycrawfish Registered User regular
    Daily today was Aemo SSB, which means I've technically got healing coverage for every realm now.

    The last few dailies I got were Uniques (Vincent, Strago), so this was a step up I suppose.

    Was skimming through reddit clears of Belias for stuff that might help 38th. Didn't find any that fit exactly with what I know 38th has, but I did run across this comical clear where someone gets a sub-30 with Tidus, Yuffie, and Onion (Ninja USB + Voltech). Tidus and Yuffie are dealing hits for 7000 (9999 on crits) when the chain is at maximum :0

    You are the best! I'm currently trying Onion with entrust/voltech and famfrit as main magicite. Only had two trials so far but so far without kraken imperil I am not clearing the second berserk.
