    Got two disco for the 5 mythril on the nine pull, garnet lightning chain and Amarant usb.

    My first lightning chain so that’s good.

    Of course garnet is still level 1, but no big deal.

    Garnet's a Pretty Big Deal with that chain. She can do damage with Valigarmanda, she can off-heal with Curaja, and she can buff the party with Warrior's Hymn or Allegro Con Moto.

    So I saw that there was a nine draw too. Figured why the hell not I’ll drop the mythril on one:

    So III torment this week, right?

    This might be the first one I manage to ??? off the bat, at least to some decent percentage.

    But what's particularly funny is that my team is so concentrated that I have no idea who my fifth person should be.

    Onion Knight: Everything but OSB and USB3
    Luneth: Literally everything but LMR
    Arc: SSB, BSB, USB - SSB is good for healing, everything else is offensive, tho.
    CoD: All I've got is USB, but it's a good USB

    Only other stuff in realm: Refia BSB and Ingus chain (which....earth chain doesn't synergize with the above the best :P)

    Kinda thinking of bringing Aria to be primary healer while Arc does some holy action, and dropping CoD for an entrust bot to keep feeding meter to Luneth.

  • EnlongEnlong Registered User regular
    Yo, does Radiant Shield increment a Realm chain if the damage is bouncing off of in-realm characters? Because that would be a big factor into me using Ingus’s B2 instead of his B1, if I field him.

    FFVIII pull even though I literally don't know what I really want from it.

    1/3: Squall ice Overstrike.

    Yeah, I'll take that! He always did need something to spend meter on after the initial Burst or Ultra.

    zell lmr

    this has been, by far, my worst realms on parade, things would have to take a sudden, extreme turn.

    and there was one time where i got 9 dupes, but at least i got a useful item.

    Siefer Ultra.

    I... Don't even know what to make of this. I'm not sure where I would fit it (dark and fire on a person I don't have enElement for either?)

    It's a great +Dark sword though, 18 hits for realm chain in torment, and more to the point, my first Party Powerchain.

    You've got me curious now.

    [...]

    Huh, that's certainly interesting. 18 hits is a weird number, but one can't fault a partywide powerchain. It's basically a physical-only, souped-up version of that one that Vayne has.

    Rinoa OSB. I have stuff for Rinoa, but not really earth stuff. Unless you count the glint. At least it's not another dupe.

    I didn't realize I had so many VIII relices, but whatever let's pull

    1/3: Zell USB.

    ....huh. well, I have both of his SSBs, both of his BSBs, his LMR, and now his USB. Guess I need to start using Zell more. And maybe dive? IDK.

    Beats another dupe at least.

    I didn’t even know that existed!

    It’ll go good with her also recently acquired USB

    VIII

    2/3 Discos!! 0.0 so many possibilities!

    Ultimecia OSB - not a dupe but not really useful.
    Selphie USB - Instant large Medica, reraise, Astra - I will take it! All I have for healing in VIII was her bsb with no entry heal and a really weak single heal?

    Success enough :) Parade was going pretty disappointingly up til this point so I'm excite. Also 2/3 twice in one parade is shocking for me.

    Why do you build, knowing destruction is inevitable? Why do you yearn to live, knowing all things must die?

    VIII: 1/3, one disco. Irvine USB! Not sure how to use this thing quite yet, but I bet it'll come in handy for VIII stuff!

    Zell BSB1 off the parade draw. I remember when that thing was a meta defining item. Now it doesn't really fit anywhere. I have like three fire monks and three Earth monks ahead of him. Maybe it will see use in Torment. Maybe.

    Parade draw gives me... 1/3, no disco. Fujin's Glint- increase wind attack levels by two, next two actions on reduced delay. Triggers instantly.

    She's turning into quite the little wind mage, I think.

    That mess was so annoying with fights like Belias, where a crit can mean the difference between life and death early on.

    Weirdly, LMRs cost more than BSBs or OSBs in the Record Lab.

    Costs to Redeem Lenses

    Level 1 Anima Lens
    Unique: 1500 L1 Lenses
    SSB: 3000 L1 Lenses

    Level 2 Anima Lens
    BSB: 1000 L2 Lenses
    OSB: 1000 L2 Lenses
    LMR: 3000 L2 Lenses

    Level 3 Anima Lens
    USB: 1000 L3 Lenses

    Retroactive record dungeon prizes, JP got 25,000ish Level 1 lenses and 5,000ish Level 2.

  • JragghenJragghen Registered User regular
    So basically we shouldn't agonize over Unique/SSB stuff in AA and just pick already.

  • ElderlycrawfishElderlycrawfish Registered User regular
    Maybe? I'm not sure exactly what can be redeemed in the Lab. Sounds like there's a cutoff date, but that shouldn't matter for Uniques. Maybe newer SSBs might not be in.

    Sounds like MVPs are getting their letters. VI event starts on the 20th (edit: I guess no III Torment this week then?). Banner Fests start on the 25th,
    Festival Phase 1 5:00 PM 12/25 PST (1:00 AM 12/26 UTC) to 4:59 PM 12/27 PST (0:59 AM 12/28 UTC) New relics include Onion Knight's Arcane Overstrike, and Tyro and Y'shtola's Ultra Soul Breaks. Cloud's Arcane Overstrike makes its return!

    Festival Phase 2 5:00 PM 12/27 PST (1:00 AM 12/28 UTC) to 4:59 PM 12/29 PST (0:59 AM 12/30 UTC) The second phase brings a lineup focused on earth! Rydia gets new Arcane Overstrike and Ultra Soul Break relics, while Red XIII gets a new Ultra Soul Break as well!

    Festival Phase 3 5:00 PM 12/29 PST (1:00 AM 12/30 UTC) to 4:59 PM 12/31 PST (0:59 AM 1/1 UTC) Ultra Soul Breaks for Elarra and Cecil (Paladin), and Edward's Chain Soul Break debut! You'll also have another chance to get Celes's Arcane Overstrike.

    Festival Phase 4 5:00 PM 12/31 PST (1:00 AM 1/1 UTC) to 4:59 PM 1/2 PST (0:59 AM 1/3 UTC) This banner heats things up as Squall gets a new fire-elemental Ultra Soul Break, Vivi and Zell unleash their Arcane Overstrikes, and Vincent's Ultra Soul Break appears as well!

    Festival Phase 5 5:00 PM 1/2 PST (1:00 AM 1/3 UTC) to 4:59 PM 1/4 PST (0:59 AM 12/28 UTC) Lulu debuts her Arcane Overstrike and Ultra Soul Break, and Reno has a new Ultra Soul Break too! Squall's Arcane Overstrike makes its return.

    Banners 1 & 3 getting all mixed up, rest of them seem unchanged for the big prizes. Celes Arcane is replacing something in the 1/3 mix-up banners. Squall Arcane in Banner 5 replacing something too. Either Prompto Chain or Rinoa ice BUSB, probably?

    Lucky Draws for LMR, OSB, and USB are set for the 22nd, 23rd, and 24th. Don't snooze on these, they are only up for 24 hours.

    The commemoration draw is set for New Year's day, instead of before the fest banners. This is the half price first pull that has stuff like Cloud USB, Bartz USB. (JP version had Elarra, GodWall, Orlandeau USBs as well as some LMRs and BSBs. Only Cloud and Bartz mentioned so far)

    No mention of a 33-pull or gem draws, but I wouldn't count them out yet.

    Just remember these banner probably have the much maligned format with higher off banner. The banner change is probably why the events were delayed till after maintenance.

    Which means we're still waiting on the FF3 event and Torment, and I think Heat Offering/Lunar Ifrit from Rubies, which, you know, might be useful for Manticore and Mateus dropping tomorrow.

    There is a banner coming in six months with 6-8 chains on it depending on how accurate my memory is.

    Japan got a Chain select but I think it was 90$ or something reasonable like that.

    I hope Heat Offering arrives soon. I am probably going to want to start banging my head against D$$$ while visiting family, now that I can assemble a magicite loadout with HP Boon 8s, Blade Ward 8s, and Spell Ward 8s. And Heat Offering will fit nicely into like half of my realm teams, maybe even more.

    So I got Garnet's Chain on the Daily Draw today.
    It's a dupe, and wasted on me. I'm so sorry every who could have actually used this.

    I'm thinking keep it separate, for two 6* +Lightning Light armors.

    When Heat Offering exists, I wonder if it would be a good idea for me to try fielding Balthier? The only relevant soul breaks I have are his Enfire S, and his B1. But he has his dualcast Machinist RLM.

    ...on the other hand, he’s competing with Locke, Refia, Auron, Bartz, and Jecht. His access to an Imperil-chance ability seems like less of a real option in comparison.

    Yeah, the Odin fight came out, and there is no Odin magicite to be seen. He’s largely just a capstone challenge to put a lid on this era of content. A sufficiently ridiculous one, from what I’ve heard. He apparently rivals/exceeds the part 3 Torments.

    Should be interesting to see what comes next, provided the game doesn’t implode with the end of Magicite, of course.
