Looking forward to all the Type-0 4*s on Friday!

At least King's Resolve TM is nice to have. 7% MP regen's a decent enough reward for pulling 20 of the time-wasting rear end in a top hat.

Check the summon simulator for it to see how often you can pull Delita and Ace.

Post-Enhancement Ace is one of my very, very best mans now. I got my first Nuclear Launch Detected hit today... good god.

From my daily 1/2 price, I got a trust moogle for Moonblade. I think the game is preparing me for 5* disappointment already.

I'm really hoping for Wilhelm, Marie, or a second Fryevia. I wouldn't be mad at an Orlandeau since I have a full set of gear and TMs I can just transplant from Noctis. I'll probably end up getting Rem or something since I already have a stable of great healers.

It's a shame that those aren't actually worth doing. Those are always 24h, have a miserable success rate. Alternatively you could do 2 12h energy bottle ones, get 20 energy, and TM macro yourself 0.2% on people, and get more relics and a higher success rate.

But yes, I did one too because OMG MOOGLE.

They really needed to increase the payout on the relics that's for certain. Just scaling them so evenly based on time and difficulty is dumb.

I will be completely astonished if I get anyone except for Delita or Lightning.

I just realized I think I have everything for a full best-in-slot Olive. Is there a better accessory for her than Bracer? How does that compare to Celestial Gloves?

Once the next(?) FF3 event rolls around we'll get Desch who is a 4* base unit with a +45 atk TMR, but until then the +30 atk stuff like bracers are the best for Olive.

I'm expecting a 2nd Delita, 3rd Queen, or maybe Lightning.


I would be more than ok with a 2nd Orlandu, Olive, or Fryevia though. Praying for Ramza but I know it isn't going to happen.

A single 24 hour one for a moogle doesn't seem bad. Hell, even the week long 150 requirement for the S rank isn't that bad. I'm already up to 80 and I forgot to check my explorations all day.

It's a 1% moogle, though. (the 24h expedition)

So yeah, it just kind of dawned on me that I don't have enough of the story characters to actually do the equipment trials. Oh well. Have Fina, Rain and Lasswell at 6*/100 and Lid at 5*/80. I'm like halfway through Olderion, so I should be good to give them a shot once I get Nichol. I do have a few more things to get from the crossover event, but I should be able to manage if I get a few metal gods.

If you have some good TMs, you really only need Rain, Laswell, and Fina to heal. Since those are all capped, you can easily run the event. If you have a Sakura that would help a lot too with 20% damage reduction.

Oh, you totally can, I'm an idiot. However, Donchu is an rear end in a top hat and just murdered Lid with his fire damage counter.

There a trick to Frigid Swordsman? He's kind of kicking my rear end.

He uses Concentrate at the end of his turn which needs to be dispelled. Make sure you hit him with Dispel (some Espers give it, you can also craft it if you get the recipe, or the Aura Staff also gives it), Finger Snap (Odin can give it or Lasswell gets it innately), or throw a Holy Torch on him that you can buy in town. This'll remove breaks too so make sure to reapply Undermine. Jake also learns Break Style which is a -45% ATK debuff which is better than the -30% debuff from Undermine if you wait until he joins and you get him to 5* max level. Apply both Break Style and Undermine so you can debuff his DEF too. Make sure you cheer with Fina too for the DEF buff.

Also bring fire weapons. The dude resists ice so Lasswell shouldn't be using any of his ice elemental attacks. Rain's sword and the Vernard from the current event should cover weapons nicely.

Didn't really consider the Dispel, thanks! Just cleared it on my first try after swapping Siren onto Lid. Opened with Cheer/Sunbeam, then had Fina using Curaja, Lid using Dispel, Rain (with the Crimson Saber/Bowie Knife) using Undermine, and Lasswell (with my DW of Vernard and a Genji Blade) using Blade Flash.

One thing I'm liking about expeditions is that it has been a decently steady source of holy crystals, generally 1-3 a day. Which isn't a lot on the surface, but it is a steady stream that will add up over time.

Scrublord Prime

Yeah, I always enjoy getting more sacred/holy crystals without spending energy I just wish it would quit giving me obnoxious A/S rank 12hr/1d expeditions.


I saw the new cactuar dunes was up and gave it a shot. 30 energy for 3 gigantaurs, 1 king minituar, then 2 king minituars for the third round isn't bad (plus the easy 50 lapis). It isn't as good as 1200 (including the +200% bonus) crimson ore for 12 gigantaurs for 25 energy but better than old Pro.

luckily i still have more king minitaurs than i know what to do with so can ride that out for a while

but here's hoping the next banner gets me good stuff

now i'm just lapis grinding out some more tms

have people been buying out the giancrysts from king mog? they're the only real thing i have left to buy, but it doesn't really seem like any of the enhancements i'm really waiting for (e.g. ramza) will be coming anytime soon, so i'm wondering whether i should even bother getting more crimson ore

bought the power and support ones already anyways

From my limited experience it seems the king mog events can vary wildly in mileage, better to get as many now when the goings good right?

I'm waiting for a final total of ore before deciding what to do with it but it'll probably go into power or support giantcrysts. I've had good luck with Metal Gods if not on the banner and with all the good and essentials bought I still have ~35k right now. I've been using energy to finish up story, old explorations, quests, and vault key stuff so besides the 3 daily clears of the BF dungeon I'll probably pick up a giantcryst and spend the rest shoring up on 6* mats.
