I don't think the OP has the most efficient way to get Hole/Sacred Crystals, that's my major roadblock right bow.

you get holy crystals by trying to get sacred crystals instead. you get sacred crystals in the 10 energy intermediate vortex, except i've actually had a lot more success in the 20 energy version. that typically splits between holy and sacred but its extremely rare i dont average at least 1 sacred crystal per 10 energy, and its extremely rare that i do average that in the intermediate map.

Chamber of awakening Pro. You might get six to drop or you might get none. All up to the whimsy of the RNG.

Reposting from last thread because I think it got swallowed up - is there a reason to do Arena as a newbie? I thought the first 5 fights a day would give you lapis win or lose but I haven't been getting rewards the past couple of days.

I answered your question in the OP

CAPT. Rainbowbeard posted:

It's at the VERY end of the third OP post.

They changed it so now, seems like you can get them at any level but the range of how many you get varied on RNG. You could run INT 5 times and get 2 every time or run PRO 5 times and get 5,5,0,0,0. It's silly.

It sucks because INT used to average 2 crystals, now it's much more spread out and awful. So the best thing you can do is make sure you buy all the Sacred/Holy Crystals from King Mog and pray that your PRO runs grant you good RNG.


edit: Alright I'm done with the OP for tonight.

I am an idiot because I cannot find it. My question is, do the first five fights/day in the PvP Arena give you lapis like I thought or can I just do the Col to move forward in there? I am not only not getting rewards in my mailbox, but even messages saying I earned a reward. I thought last week I was getting those. Sorry if it's really obvious in the OP but I read the thing and skimmed it again and didn't see it

Participation awards should be received in your mailbox. I'm pretty sure you don't have to win to get them, but they aren't always lapis either, sometimes it's just a potion. If you aren't getting them, log out back in, if they still aren't there message support. If you're a newbie though, I suggest you do Coliseum which also has Lapis awards at various levels, along with good gear.

So, I know someone said it takes a few days to get them, but has anyone else seen rewards from last week's arena yet? I still haven't. I'm wondering if the tiers being messed up screwed us all out of rewards.

I feel like they might be holding off on it to look into apk injectors, since they're likely taking up top spots that should be going to other players.

Attention Macro boys and girls

It seems like Memu 2.9.1.1 is very unstable. I had like 3 crashes in 3 hours running the ultimate TMs. Now back to 2.8.6 I had NO crashes 5 hours in.

I also could not find any improvements in performance or otherwise. Version 2.8.6 just runs as fine as 2.9.1.1.

Any idea what they did to cause all the crashing recently? Everything was working fine a few weeks ago and then with the Mission update all the Memus started reporting crashes all over the place.

I just bought 20 more slots because I want more goon friends! I am still a new player with a scrubby but soon to be great Elza - I play daily, send gifts and appreciate any help offered by adding me! 986 394 722

Edit: might as well add a question. At the recommendation from the old thread, I am using 5 star Elza, and all 3 star Lenna, Vivi, Kefka and Rydia.

Some units I have gotten since last asking are 4 star Luna, Russel and Alamo but I assume they are not worth swapping into my team. I also got Renaldo, Penelo, Shantotto, Sabin, Celes, Kujo, Duanne, Galuf, Kenyu and Arc, all 3 star. I heard that all of the Exvius units are trash but are any of the others I have here worth swapping into my team?

Edit 2: my team is around level 30 right now too so I am pretty invested in them. I have been ignoring Rain et al - I assume that the default characters shouldn't be leveled?

Swap out Vivi for Arc, Arc is for the forseeable future a strictly better Vivi. Otherwise, no changes.

Also, sent you a friend req.

I used the exploit to summon Diabolos in the Maxwell fight and now I'm kinda panicking, I heard JP players got banned for a similar one in the Maze event. I haven't put any money into this but starting over would drive my OCD insane.

Also ran into a dumb arena team of Cecil, 3 Arc and a Lightning. Didn't seem too bad.
The Arcs knew Meteor. All three of them.

Phantom Forest is obv not as good, but still solid for esper leveling. I probably should concentrate on it more but so much stuff to do to try and get myself set up right going forward. I can't even TM farm properly because the NRG is going to cactuars right now =/

Not just espers but hero ring mats too. I got all my espers to max level, have enough leftovers to max the next one (Carbuncle?), and crafted 8 or so hero rings. They haven't even put magicite up for sale since the Mog cake event,new players are just getting hooped.

Does anyone know exactly how much these stat pots actually boost your stats? I want to toss them onto Cecil or ExDeath, but there is of course no UI confirmation of anything prior to fusion. I know what their max boosts are from the wiki, but I don't want to waste them by overstuffing anybody.

Hell, losing at the arena gives you the same participation awards each day as winning at it - 40 Lapis, an Ether, a Potion, and a Star Quartz.

The lapis and Star Quartzes in particular add up after enough days, and all you need to do is just do your basic 5 matches a day.
