The X banner goes up today, the old banners expired last night. They wanted everything to sync with the anniversary today.

Edit: If you managed to pull a Randi, its time to dust him off...Mog is a fairy type and susceptible to spirit slayer. Randi and Cupid Luna are the only units with built in spirit slayer. It will stack with the materia that you get from the recipe in the junkyard.

The spherimorph boss in macalania woods is also fairy Type so he can pull double duty.

Run the colosseum INT S-2. You can steal/get drops from Blue elementals and Skadi. Bring a Xon and way lay stuff. You probably won't get 10 but it will give you a good start before burning NRG.

This means Vargas and Elza are in the pool for the 5* guaranteed pull for one day! Plan accordingly...

Game is up. 5* pull was:
Ramza, Fang, Guy, Lani, Sice, Bartz, Sabin, Cecil, Ulrica, Celes, Amarant.

I think it's the worst thing I could have imagined! You folks better be grateful that I took this one out of the pool.

Servers are getting hammered here in Taiwan, tons of connection errors.


I guess not only was Square to cheap to open more servers for FF14, they've been skimping on servers for Exvius too.

5* pull was a second Marie... I guess I'll take a second Rainbow Robe. I was really hoping for finally getting a Ramza or a Noctis. I guess it's just not in the cards...

Now I can't get into the game. Heavy server load right now I suppose.
Edit: and Rikku was in my free 10+1 ticket.. I'd stop there but god dammit I want Tidus.

Its extremely risky trying to buy things when the servers are hosed anyways because this game will eat your money and not give your lapiz if the connection fails

e- I actually used my 4* ticket on the FFX banner...HOPED AGAIN

So. Don't be a moron like me. It looked like the servers were more stable now. So I bought the anniversary bundle.
Purchase said completed. But then the "servers are too full" message popped me out of the game. I got back in. Bundle still in the store, but money gone out of my account.
I don't even know the exact steps to get this sorted out.


The first actual 11 pull on the banner got me a rainbow. Dark Knight Cecil.
I'm not having a good day for this...

Alright 5* summon here we go... and it's...Dark Fina #2. I guess it could have been worse, but all things considered I'd rather have had Delita.

10+1 Ticket: RAINBOW...Wilhelm! Sweet.

Now the quest for Tidus/Rikku beings...11 - roll #1...Rikku!

We're going for Tidus though!

4, 10+1 rolls later. Tidus and 2 more Rikkus.

Final haul from around 77 total pulls: 3 Rikku, Tidus, Wilhelm, and Dark Fina.

Have my 5* whale ticket to spend too but I'll save that for a while after the pool builds up some more units I don't have. Little disappointed by the Dark Fina but Wilhelm on the free 11 pull made up for it.

Nice, two new 5*s on my 5* pull. Marie and Delita. Didn't get much on my 10+1, though.

And a Rikku as my first pull on the FFX banner. Not too shabby.

Got Luneth #2 (nice, another +30 attack/mag accessory is appreciated!) and a few Zidanes off the 5* draw, just random 4*s and 3*s off the free 11, and got Tidus and Rikku off my 13 summon ticket stash. Pretty good haul! So I'm guessing Tidus doesn't chain well with the Thunder God, right?

Also is Rikku's TM essential? To the point where I should start dumping trust moogles into her over Black Cowls, dual wields and so on I mean.
