    Rydia LMR. Summon speed up. Which I was considering getting at one point I think, so I guess +3000 L2 lenses.

    Auron OSB dupe, Minfilia USB. The dupe is at least a +fire armor. I've got most of Minfilia's other stuff, so this is fine.

    Auron lmr dupe
    Rikku Chain

    I'm stacked for water, but replacing Tidus old chain with Rikku is fantastic.

    I just realized that Rem’s USB means I don’t need to field a full Holy Mage team to use her. Which is nice because it means I can take advantage of Ramza’s chain with characters like Beatrix and Leo. Getting enough meter with Rem is proving difficult, however. Holy-weak Odin attacks a lot, such that giving meter to Rem from Ramza is not helping too much, what with his chain needs. I wonder if I should instead try to make Ramza actually fight, and replace Leo with Tyro as a full-time Entruster? If Beatrix can reduce Odin’s defenses enough, Rem might be all I need for Proper Damage.

    Edit:

    Hmmm... Ramza’s Enholy USB is available from the Papaya Shop. Tempting, tempting.

    Celes OSB, the fest really wants to help my wind team.

    Tried king behemoth with very much a trial team (Rydia, Maria, Edge, Elarra, Onion Knight) with only a BSB on Rydia and Glint/AOSB on Maria I wasn't expecting much but got him down to 60 something%. It felt like a sign that with a good bit of tweaks I can do this. Diving both Rydia and Maria, getting Maria's USB and more hones to cast/craft chain stonja will hopefully do it. Might get the earth m dagger too.

    How much does Def breakdown do against Titan? Is it worth using? I can't figure out what abilities it makes sense to give Elarra. Bard +ATK seems to make sense. Not sure if it helps or not.

  • EnlongEnlong Registered User regular
    How much ATK boost are you rolling with now?

    I found Warrior’s Hymn to be of particularly good use vs Dark-Weak Odin, in combination with Nanaki’s USB for 30% ATK. It stacks with pure ATK buffs as well.

    Wait wha? Zack’s chain gives 50% ATK buff along with the chain and the crit damage boost, doesn’t it? Or does Titan do an ATK Break?

    Oh, yeah you are correct. I can't remember what soul breaks do. Or abilities do. I have the pdf file open because I can't tell how long buffs last. Now I'm making an excel spreadsheet of when Titan does what and how long everything lasts.

    Alright.

    So yeah, the Hymn will stack with Zack’s chain, so you should see a power boost.

    Depending on what else Elarra has room for, Passionate Salsa might be another option, to use between song uses after you get the full buff active. The healing is REALLY minor, but it’s there, and the stat reduction on Titan may help.

    There's no reason to not combine equipment unless you want two copies, right? It makes zero difference for rainbow shards?

  • 38thDoe38thDoe lets never be stupid again wait lets always be stupid foreverRegistered User regular
    It gives less rainbow shards.

    Apparently passionate salsa is a bigger debuf then breakdown dance

    It lasts a shorter time, though. But it’s 6-star, so more meter.

    Right significant is less significant than large. What a fool I am!

    Ah yeah but rosetta aren't worth as much as a 5 star. I could be wrong but that's what I remember.
    Lol it's like much more is better than significant.

    Box step is significantly reduce the defense
    Salsa is lower a large amount.

    Hey you know what's easier and saves space?

    50%

    Why is this so hard for them?

    You get 2000 rainbow points for sharding a base 5* relic (or 4500 for a base 6* relic) plus 1000 per augment level.

    If you combine them, you end up with a single base 5* (or 6*) relic that has the augment levels added together.

    ie
    5* relic at 1 augment level = 3000 points
    Combined 5*+ relic relic at 2 augment level = 4000 points

    I decided I was going to do the awakening select, so I did the draw (waiting on the select).

    2/11 both disco
    Dupe Tyro USB1 (my... Fifth?)
    Aerith Awakening

    OKAY.

    First healing awakening and it looks like a doozy.

    Aerith Awakening is ridiculously good. She can singlehandedly heal your team from 1 HP to full in a single turn because of the way her LM2 and LMR stacks.

    PCecil's synchro is so weird. It comes with a special status that adds chases depending on which Sync command you use, so they count as separate abilities (for things like stripping multiple rage levels) even though they're inescapably tied to the sync commands. Which is pretty nice for the C1, which is just offensive stuff... Then you get to his C2. The sync command is a cure level medica. That's it. That's bad even for a healer burst command. But the chase is a damage reduction barrier plus a couple Phys/Wht attacks. So I guess they just split off the effects wherever and called that good enough. Doesn't even heal for quadruple digits in his sample video with it.

  • EnlongEnlong Registered User regular
    Alright! Holy team for Odin makes it to the final attack before losing. I think it’s time to get Beatrix’s OSB off of the shop, so that she can (hopefully) spam 99999 damage hits in the last phase instead of 49995 with her BSB. Rem is proving real strong if she survives, easily breaking rage with an R5 Holyja, and spamming full damage OSBs in the final phase. It’s about optimizing Damage now.

    Meter isn’t an issue for final phase Rem (she can fire an OSB with every action, even under speed boosts), but that would help Beatrix.

    New draw is up, hybrid is the focus I guess. Edge, Pecil, Vincent Awakenings plus other stuff for them and Reno.

    100-gemmed Vincent's start with 3 quickcasts LMR, guess that is fine. I've already got his Awakening so I probably shouldn't pull here.

    I'd like to pull for Edge because he's a cool guy, but this stuff isn't actually very good for me, and I have most of the Vincent and Reno stuff already.

    Don't forget to save mythril for Realms on Parade, since that starts next week.

    Took Aerith solo healing for a spin against Holy Odin. Getting SUPER close, might manage it with her taking Ultra Cure instead of Curada because of lack of Esuna/Astra, but MAN.

    Phase 3 Odin is terrifying if you're used to having Regenga to regenerate health before that first set of attacks.

    I will actually use that Glint in conjunction with her Arcane. Still, it’s pretty bad compared to any aura Glint.
