Fun Shoe

FFV banner announced this morning.

Got 2 Bartz to 6*. Hope I can pull an Exdeath or two with daily pulls.

Also that sweet CoD mace. Hope the trial isn't complete BS.

Plum Island Animal Disease Research Center. Sounds charming.

She becomes pretty good. Innate dualcast with green/white/black magic. So in theory she can Buff and/or heal and/or contribute to a chain 2 out of 3 in a turn. Doesn't have 6* stats obviously, but a solid addition to a team for sure.

Go RV!

She gets Dispel, Curaja, Aeroga, MP Refill, and +30% MAG with a staff.

So pretty dang good.

Krile learns Curaja and Aeroga. Which is nice when you consider she already has Dualcast.

I appreciate that Agent355 just says "Grover house" in his friend comment. For god sakes you need to get a hat on that Arc. Hatless Arc's are a crime. Enjoy my Demon Rain. I don't know what he is supposed to be doing either.

Make the most of what you got.

The only way I could improve mine is with a 2nd Bracer... and guess who I pulled today!

I dont see that banner? Its just the unlock announcement that ExDeath and Bartz 6* will be available. Its not a banner.

Guess Gumi doesnt want me to have an ExDeath. Fine.

They haven't announced Gilgamesh, so they might have wanted to just put up an announcement for all of the Awakenings separately from the actual FFV banner itself.

It would be a bit weird if it wasn't an FFV banner coming, since we'd have all of the FFV awakenings and then some other random banner?

Wait, isn't Gilgamesh supposed to come considerably later because he's a stupid pain in the rear end?

Anyway, now I get to decide between making Exdeath or Refia next. Probably Exdeath. Ugh, there's so much poo poo to level and no time at all.

I never pulled an ExDeath so I'm salty. I was hoping they'd put him on a banner. Maybe they'd do a pity move and add Bartz/ExDeath to this next FF5 banner.

Faris looks like a weak breaker. Better than Vaan in some ways, but probably not worth chasing by the looks of it.

Since Gilgamesh is a base 5* good luck pulling him.

The last character on the banner is Mercedes who is a physical attacker that uses Axes. I guess if you're hurting for Physical attackers she's not that bad. Looks like she has a decently high base attack and some built in attack bonuses along with Barrage and a 50% attack buff that hits the whole party for 3 turns. Base 4* but can go to 6* right away.

I want Mercedes because of her future Enhancements (and she's not a half bad physical attacker right now). Warcry turns into an AOE +100% ATK & 100% ATK Debuff Resistance for 3 turns; her Axe Mastery passive turns into +100% ATK, and Axe of the Sea Gods gets a great boost particularly if you're wielding a water element Axe (ie- her TM).

Yes, but Faris is the best and I want her even if she's warming the bench.

Well, I'm sure I'll pick her up while chasing Gilgamesh anyway.

Faris was my favorite character in FF5 because Female Pirate Captain with pet Sea Dragon is loving awesome. It's too bad that most of the cast got pushed aside in the later acts.

Okay, I've put her up and sent you an invite. Wouldn't say she's the most murdererest (only got 1 rising sun and the pestle vs another goon's 2), but she does bring it.

On a completely different note, since I think I will be playing this game for the Long Haul, I've been considering the following post:

I think it might be time to set up some grinding macros for Explorations again. They aren't a bad way of getting XP, and I think I'm going to need quite a number of megacrysts

FF5 event on Thanksgiving and here I am sitting on 63 gigantaurs with all 100 still available from King Mog for me to buy and feed to my 5*, 4*, and 3* Exdeaths. The 3* one should get the last mini burst pot he needs to hit 10/10 at which point I'll probably just say gently caress it and make him my 2nd 6* unless there's a ton of mini burst pots coming in the next week or two. I really wish I'd remembered to farm a bit harder to buy the 45(?) pots from the halloween event. Between my current cactuars, the 100 from King Mog, and just some general grinding I should be able to 6* and lvl 100 two exdeaths pretty much immediately. At that point the arena's gonna get a whole lot easier to blow through. Right until I run in to a 5 Exdeath team that goes first, anyways. Don't think I'll pull on this banner because I already have Galuf, 2 Kriles, and 3 Exdeaths. Butz and Greg would be cool and all but meh. I'll keep saving for the Orlandu disappointment extravaganza.


Just fought an arena team of Tilith/Tilith/Tilith/Elza/Maxwell. I can only imagine how much karma that person has collected so far.

Vax posted:

Here's some more of Shantottos pretty good 5* Tornado skill. He couples it with Firions AOE to get Edgar-Like chains in.

Also Orochi, which he slows down to show the 3996 damage hit from his cold breath (?) attack. That Orochi's HP. though...

Hardbody posted:

He is decent, but he comes with Doublehand which is a great TM.

That said, I dont think that is the banner. Rumor is Gilgamesh is coming.

Gilgamesh and Faris should both be coming, but Faris is just a 5* full breaker. Gilgamesh's biggest downside is he doesn't have a native dual wield, but his TM is the Genji Glove which is a hero ring that gives dual wield. It also means that you could technically have a unit like 5* Garland with dual wield, but why you'd do something like that when you have Gilgamesh instead is another matter.

At least they probably won't split the banner like they did for FFT, since this only has one new 6* unit.

The worst part about that ring is the stupid crafting mats that only drop when you craft something. Not to mention the dedication you have to have to grind out 70 Trophy rewards. That ring is truly the sign of a great whale.
