For a swift one at the wrist, down on the old main drag.

So is enhanced Ramza superior to Roy? I was so stoked to pull a roy off banner that I almost don't want to sit him even with a better option but I'm not sure if that's the case

Roy is better in most situations, especially if you max his LB.

Awesome thanks. It kinda looks like Ramza gets to the 100% boost faster but Roy can do way more and has a AoE break so yeah ill prob stick with my boy I call Roy. Also I appreciate seeing his entourage afterwards which is clearly a big plus for him

Well I don't need to solo LGD because I only drew Vayne.

Vayne seems okay. He's got... Meditate and Embolden with additional effects, Barusa's MAG and PHYS damage reduction skills with additional followup attacks the next turn if you want them, and a LB which breaks ATK/MAG and allows a 40% all damage reduction move the next turn.

So, he's some kind of... buffmonk? He can keep a tank alive, that's for sure.

To be fair, one of the situations where Ramza out-shines Roy is when you can apply MAG/ATK breaks on the boss. Someone else in this thread did the math but the effect of having 60% on those individual breaks is kind of massive compared to Roy's 45% breaks, so much so that it's worth using those single breaks before Ramza goes into Song mode. But if you don't cannot apply those breaks to begin with then Roy will be just plain better with his LB song or final song.

Also I think this is the first event where pulling either of the 5* units will make the whole thing trivial for me. I'd make Basch a Magic Cover + Provoke tank to soak up everything while using someone like Onion Knight to do the wetwork. Or if I get Balthier I'll just turn two of my other bonus units into Pod chainers and just put Olive's BiS TDH gear on him and nuke everything. And yet I'm really hesitant to spend more tickets on it since I know I need to start saving for Sephiroth/Lila at some point.

So this solo LGD TT, I set it up and it seemed to work perfectly, it just takes forever, right? Or am I doing it wrong?

Edit: did it a second time and it went much faster, weird. Not fast or anything, but not slow this time.

Mine does. She's only rocking about 700 mag and the last boss usually takes a good 7-8 rounds to kill minimum.

Got mana drained the first time, that will certainly slow things down. Switched Ifrit out for Ramuh so I can osmose if it happens again. Puts me at only 90% FR, but it wasn't an issue with decent spirit.

Does your T Terra need to be enhanced to solo LGD?

One of her enhancements gives her +20% HP which is helpful for the attacks she can't cheese and +30% fire resistance which makes it easier to hit or get close enough to fire immunity that the final boss can't kill you. I wouldn't call them essential if you can make up for them but it'll help. Plus a stronger Magical Activation and Chaos Wave will help speed up the whole process.

The key parts are fire immunity, or close to (final boss uses a lot of fire attacks), 100% evade (everything has a few physical attacks) and sleep immunity (so you don't lose your 100% evade). Mechanical Heart helps too for the few attacks you can't cheese, especially if you don't have 100% fire immunity or evade.

My TT also set up for soloing LGD, that chocobo can be a nightmare if he uses choco meteor twice in one turn though.

10 tickets, a 4* ticket and all I got was one Larsa.

This is going to be a long, slow event.

Apparently you are getting all my bonus monsters, because I've done about that many runs with 0 bonus monsters.

Yeah, maybe I just haven't figured out easy mode for LGD, but so far ELT has a better award-to-effort ratio for me so far. I think I'll just cruise ELT.

Arngrim merits five stars? Um, Okay. I think there were many, many characters better than him. I guess because him and Jelinda were starter characters...

Is that other guy Lenneth's human boyfriend? It's been a long long time since I've played that game...

Best guesses are saying that he's going to be the Raid Milestone 5* unit. Like Marquis De Leon in the DQ raid. And yeah, Lucian was her boyfriend. I woulda preferred Lezard, but eh.

e: Also Arngrim played a pretty important recurring role in VP games so it's not unusual.

Well, my Trance Terra can't even get me through the first fight of LGD, so I think it's grinding the lower difficulties for me.

So is there even a point to even doing LGD after the 1st time getting everything? The amount of currency is insignificant if not less than what I get if I do ELT more, like its only 200 more for 15 more energy. Plus the Mobs have a dumb amount of Health to chew through.

We're not?

Iíve never actually been happier to have double Onion Knight than this event. I canít 1-shot the final boss on LGD unless I have a Balthier for imperil or Basch for def break, but I can 1-short every wave and, at worst, 2-shot the boss. And since his first turn is all fire based attacks I can just use the water attack to also give OKs 100% fire resist. Iím not able to just mash repeat but it takes me like 5 minutes to eat my entire energy bar. And Iíve gotten a fairly ridiculous amount of currency thus far with 10 nrg pots and a rank up refresh. Iíve already gotten all the tickets and all the cheap 6* mats. Iím probably just going to try to stock up on giancrysts and maybe pick up a Pure or two - which is far faster progress and far more ambitious than any other MK event (including the Noctis banner where I had a 525% for virtually every run).
