    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.

    I'm dreading it's something tuned for AASBs.

    If it is, I hope it sticks around forever like Magicite, rather than vanishing like Zeromus. OTOH, stuff like Zeromus and Kaiser Dragon reward almost nothing but the milestone, so I guess that’s fine.

    That Odin fight is definitely tuned for AASBs; as the fight progresses, it appears that he starts putting on three "stacks" of enrage mode at the same time, so you have to hit him with multiple cap-breaking abilities to peel off all the extra defense. One turn with an AASB active will peel two or three (depending on whether you get a %-chance doublecast to go off or not), good luck trying to chop through all of that with OSBs.

    never pull on VII.

    In all seriousness, this thing has its place. Not sure how much of a place it has, when I have Ninja Onion, but an ATK/MAG/Crit buff on a full strength bard/dancer should be useable.

    Unless you're using Cloud USB 1, as you could overwrite his 100% crit chance with a 50% if you get you recasts mistimed.

    Sadly, I ain't got that thing for Zack. It might be neat to try the VII torment with Cait Sith anyway, maybe bringing in Ramza as a ringer with B2 and Chant.

    Banner format was 14 slots. Now it will be 12 slots for featured relics and 2 slots for off banner items for characters on the banner.

    Fire banner has no chains... Ice banner has snow. meh?

    IIRC the chance of getting an item on the banner is now 12%, and there's a 1% chance each to get a 5* or 6* item not featured on the banner, but for a character with another item on the banner.

    So like for the fire banner, Krile's chain isn't on it, but I have a 1% chance to pull from a pool that contains that relic, because she's featured on the banner with other items?

    Yeah you should have 1%/(number of 6* items of characters not in the pool) of getting off banner stuff.

    you need a very specific balance of defense, healing and damage while managing his nulfire stacks

    its definitely not a fight you can just casually throw your strongest fireboys at

    There's a lot of super strong Fireboys, so I guess they tuned this boss upwards a tic?

    It’s more that he does a lot of crap that’s uncommon and hard to deal with.

    He’s got a defensive Rage, and also likes to use BarFire and increase his Defense stat. He also spams Imperil Ice and slaps your teammates with Reflect to make normal healing basically unworkable.

    What makes him so deadly, I think, is that he conpletely trashes normal strategies.

    Yeah you should have 1%/(number of 6* items of characters not in the pool) of getting off banner stuff.

    Note that per the announcement, the offbanner adjustment thing takes place on future banners. It doesn't affect the Fire banner or the Ice banner that went up today, for instance.

    The way to tell is to scroll through and count the featured items. If there are 14 featured items, it's the old style of banner; if there are 12 featured items, it's the new banner type with the character-focused offbanner pool.

    Either way, you still have the same overall chance of getting 5* and 6* items, it's just that a small portion of those 5* and 6* items will be other items for characters on the banner.


    edit: hmm, reading some on reddit, apparently this was implemented slightly differently than I thought from the announcement.

    Before:
    14.02% chance of getting a 5* or better
    14% chance of getting one of the 14 featured items
    .02% chance of getting literally any 5* or better item that's ever been released

    Now, fire/ice banners:
    14.02% chance of getting a 5* or better
    14% chance of getting one of the 14 featured items
    .02% chance of getting a 5* or better item for one of the characters that has a featured item

    Predicted for the next several banners, including this fest and for probably a month after:
    14.02% chance of getting a 5* or better
    12% chance of getting one of the 12 featured items
    1.01% (?) chance of getting a 5* item for one of the characters that has a featured item
    1.01% (?) chance of getting a 6* item for one of the characters that has a featured item

    Because it’s so powerful that people liken it to an Ultra Soul Break, rather than a Super Soul Break.

    Because it's very, very good for its designation as just a Super Soul Break. So colloquially it's considered his 'USB0' because it's not technically a USB, but is definitely as good as one.

    I kind of wish it wasn't though, since I'm pretty sure the popularity of Edge with Eblan Doppleganger is kind of what led to them forgetting about him for new stuff for so long.
