Day 5 is 500 lapis. That's potentially TWO 5* tickets if you get really lucky on daily pulls!

One thing I like about this lull is that Ive actually burned the excess energy pots I had stashed. Im actually at 180 now after using like 90 on refreshes just because all of the ones I couldnt get from the mail do to overflow

Remembered that I had a pair of 10+1 tickets I'd been saving and decided to burn them while the xmas units were in the pool. Didn't get any of them.


Guess I'll just have to make do with the Aileen and Mystera I pulled instead.

That days 3 and 4 are rare (3 star) and 4 star tickets while day 5 is 500 lapis instead of a 5* ticket is the most "lol gently caress you non-Japanese players" mobile gaming thing imaginable.

as much as i have dogged on bedile in the past today i got another rydia and brought her up to 75% towards...blizzaga. bediles tm is also bad but i have to figure its got to be marginally better than like, firaga, blizzaga, or "equip daggers" which jesus christ

Every ability you mentioned is better than Bedile's TMR. the magic sword attacks are utter garbage and there's a reason that characters were getting entirely different hybrid abilities not long after launch.

Equip Dagger can let you equip a dagger with 10% HP or some evasion therefor it is functionally a 10% HP TM at least.

The moon sage unit has an ability that protects the party from all ailments and breaks in one cast, which is pretty handy.

But that's about it. Skill modifiers on all those units would need to be increased significantly to make them even remotely useful for anyone not a low-rank newbie tying to fill spots in their parties.

5* ticket is the 28th day login.

Still sucks we are only getting one, but on the plus side its a ticket and not a 5000 lapis banner which works out better for f2p players.

also reminder we should be getting a 10+1 ticket on the 25th tomorrow.

So Christine isn't just "Ice Trance Terra", though the fact she perfect chains with TT is amazing. She also chains with Tidus (Absolute Zero), and any of the Orlandu family (Ice Shards). She works with SO MANY people.

He will know I am near when he hears the screams of my enemies.

Are there any Ice-based daggers/swords/throwns to come? I was thinking of running Nyx with my double Fryevias as a finisher but the only Ice weapons he can use are Fryevia's TMR (which are not gonna go on him) or the weak Icebrand.

Not really. Only ice weapon of note is Erwin's TM, on CG Sakura's banner in February. 110 damage ice katana with 25% beast/bird/plant/aquatic killer. We also had Northern Lights, but that's a spear. Fryevia's is the most prevalent.

I pulled a Veritas of the Flame on my 10+1 and decided to spend my last 5 tickets for shits and giggles and got a Wilhelm. Is Wilhelm a better tank than WoL? Or should I just keep him in the reserves?

Got a VoL from my 10+1 - he's not so hot, right?

Funny, I've certainly pulled more quantity of 5*s since the rate-up went live, but not a single one has been played (other than farming 2 of Prishe's TM, oh and Fohlen's as well).



EDIT: Enhance Wilhelm, get his TM, K.Delita's, and 3-4 Patriotic Recalls. He's dreamy.

Lightlord takes a specialized gearset, which is not readily accessible if you haven't been playing for a while and haven't pulled Noctis. Talking General Offensive from the Black Friday bundle, Power of Creation from Maxwell (Brave Frontier crossover), a highly ranked Adventurer TM, a pair of Ring of the Lucii, a gun from an old Type-0 event, Lawrence's Monster Breastplate TM, Hope's Nue TM, etc.

Example of a powerful Lightlord build: here

Whole bunch of garbage from my 10+1. Only 1 gold and the rest blues. Nobody particularly offensive bunch just things that I have plenty of already. I think Hoemaru was the best TMR in the lot.

I'm a bit surprised we didn't see the summon pool change yet. I guess they figured they'd wait until after the holiday but there's so many characters now I'd like to start being able to at least roll for a specific role with some of these tickets. I wonder if they'll let you choose which pool you can spend ex tickets on or if you'll still be stuck rolling those from a general pool.
