    I dislike the EN voices when they try really hard to be JP voices in English. When they're English takes on characters they're good.

    What is this I don't even.

    I’m not a fan of how they did SilverAsh’s english VA myself. In the same vein Phantom is in a similar place.

    Outside of those 2 I generally like them.

    EX stages are open for the event. No, I still don't like this events mechanics. The second stage is really, really dumb about it...

    For some characters I feel like the EN VA completely destroyed the character's personality (e.g. Fartooth, Platinum)

    Others have been fucking amazing, like Kroos Goldenglow Horn Heidi Irene Chen Nearl etc etc et c cetcetc etc c

    The more recent batches feel like they have better direction overall. I'd kinda like to see a redo for the older batches. I mean ffs they did Blacknight so dirty where's her Rim Billy accent :cry:

    Also not a fan of Exu's, or Texas's... there's maybe at least 12 or so I feel that they just whiffed super hard on. For the most part though, a lot of them fit super well and they sound great.

    well i was bored and had been tossing pulls here and there, ended up deep into the pity because my 6* rng on limited banners is usually pretty bad, got another irene.

    oh well, i tried. at least specter isn't very good, mostly just wanted her for completions sake.

    Oh, Surtr in the yellow cert shop

    That's a good deal, might actually spend the certs to get -1 DP

    Oh she’s not very good.

    YET.

    Spectre’s real power is she’s an immortal guard disguised as a spec, and when her module gets upgraded both phases of her are going to be wild.

    Yeah, it's making me slightly regret going for the headhunting tickets, since I'm down to 100 yellows now. How was I supposed to know Surtr would end up in the shop right away...

    On the other hand, I did manage to get both Irene and Specter off the banner (another 10-pull like, the day before the new banner was announced got her).

    Depending on your region, Crunchy might be the only legal watch option, yes.

    Does anyone have an alternative to the guide function Gamepress' Ark blog used to serve? For some reason, they stopped updating in July it seems like. I liked reading the Operator analysis to see what skills people like to raise for my new pulls and would rather get that info in text rather than through a memey 20 minute YouTube video.

    even with full module power she's still only good not great, which given how high the investment is there doesn't really impress. probably most useful in cc challenges where you're not allowed to use guards or insane strats that don't really interest me.

    i'd put her in like, slightly above rosmontis tier in that she's usable but nowhere close to as strong as someone like chalter or skalter.

    they still have those guides, they're just in the character pages. this is irene's for example.

    Getting a lot of use out of W for the EX levels this time. I could use Meteorite or somebody like that, but the ability to instantly detonate groups of those sniper squids is worth its weight in gold.

    the annihilation ticket thing is a legit life changer

    doing an entire week of annihilation in 15 seconds was among the most i've ever felt like i was cheating in a video game

    EX Challenge 8, the boss's stats become pretty, pretty ludicrous. He's shrugging off a tag team of Level 90 S3M3 Monster AND Surtr, at the same time. I was able to use Mostima as a Gnosis replacement on every stage save that one, had to call in a buddy Gnosis to clear Challenge 8 (perhaps Suzuran would have worked, I didn't check).

  • Warlock82Warlock82 Never pet a burning dog Registered User regular
    I really gotta finish up the event. I'm on like level 7 or 8 of the main part, haven't even touched EX yet :P I see 11/24 and get lazy :P (which is really 11/23 because it's like 11/24 at 4am... hate when they do dates like that, so misleading)

    It is very, very hard for me to work up the brain power/ effort to complete the EX levels during the work week, so it's pretty important to my schedule to hit 'em hard on that first weekend. CC is usually even rougher, I just see the Permanent stage as this giant mountain that I don't want to touch for most of the run, then I end up having to rush all the sub-objective clears in it towards the end.

    I planned on clearing out all the ex stages this weekend for the same reason

    But instead I got really mad at football and then gave into the "I want to play a moba" bug like a complete dumbass

    I give this event credit for making me play pretty creatively. I dusted off Mostima, Schwarz, W, and used Horn for the first time to clear various weird level designs.

  • PolaritiePolaritie Sleepy Registered User regular
    Ifrit was an all-star for me here. A number of stages are set up well for her attack range, and the fact that she can debuff both def and res depending on skill is super useful.

    I just gave up on this event. I can't make any of my builds work and I don't have the 4 star cadre to follow a guide.

    What is this I don't even.
  • FeldornFeldorn Mediocre Registered User regular
    Do you have Lappland? That will solve a lot of problems in this event. Or Jaye at E1 max.

    Also, you giving up on regular stages or EX stages?

  • Knight_Knight_ Dead Dead Dead Registered User regular
    even without the 4* cadre i can use the guides to just stick my normal operators into the slots required, more or less

    if you're throwing 6*s at a problem being solved by 3s and 4s in a guide, the extreme increase in power usually fixes most issues of missing a perfect fit

    aeNqQM9.jpg
  • DarkewolfeDarkewolfe Registered User regular
    Yeah I'm throwing 6s at it. I just suck at not knowing roles and who subs for what. And/or the cost of my 6s keeps me from getting deployed fast enough.

  • DarkewolfeDarkewolfe Registered User regular
    Like, I definitely have the operators to do this I imagine, I'm just too bad at the game.

  • Knight_Knight_ Dead Dead Dead Registered User regular
    if dp is your problem you can usually just throw more vanguards at the problem, or flagpipe if you have it. usually the low * guides require multiple ranged damage dealers to do the work of one good one though so can just trim the edges off the guide

    Regarding costs, do you have Flag Vanguards in play (Myrtle, Elysium, Saileach)? And what roles are you trying to cover, we can probably give you tips there. If you have time to try again, this stuff is probably fixable.

    Right, so. I definitely have the pieces I think:

    Istina
    Nine-Colored Deer
    Pramanix
    Leizi
    FEater
    Manticore

    For the event, Lappland E2 is amazingly useful since her silence shuts down the evasion on some enemies. (Any status effect will do, but Lappland's silence has 100% uptime at E2 and she has AoE and arts damage on S2 which are both useful for the event too). Bagpipe and Mudrock are the 6*s I'd E2 first from that list I think. You've definitely got the pieces to clear the event though with that kind of firepower already at E2.

    Hell, Hoshiguma with her S2 equipped can literally deal with one of the most annoying enemies/mechanics in this event, the Spewers, since they'll kill themselves by attacking her.

    You've definitely got the all the correct pieces to clear this whole event, you're not lacking in firepower for sure. My advice is find multiple different video guides, from different people. There's many strategies and some honestly won't gel as well for you as others (I know that personally speaking when I was starting out, there'd be some where I'd prefer KyoStin's strat over Eckogen's, or vice versa, or someone else entirely)

    But you can definitely clear all the stages with what you have

    It does hurt not having the certs for her, but if you already have multiple high power nukes it's not fatal.

    Since I like what's in the current banner I went ahead and did pulls. Sadly, I'm 11 certs short and tapped out so I might not make it.

    But I borrowed a Surtr for where I was stuck in the event and at least got past it.
