monsieuralexander

So.. how is slots de chocobo spins for everyone? I'm at 455 spins and stopped getting tokens. did i miss something? or is everyone at 455??


hassive-mitler

Same. Some people told me to wait till CoW, maybe next week


twistofate916

With the implementation of premium banners, does that mean the element of surprise is back in weekly banners. I mean it could be Yuna next week and she's not powercreping Sephiroth. Auron could be this month or 6 months. They could rearrange the order now and it would fit.


TomAto314

They could. I doubt it, but you never know. Auron/Yuna lineup nicely with the holiday blitz so I think they'll put the squeeze on there.


lloydsmith28

I want to pull for either A!Tifa or L!Seph. Seph is cooler and probably better, but Tifa is my FF7 waifu so hard to choose. Although looking at their skills they are pretty muc the same, the only real difference is the gear they can use (seph having better gear) so I am undecisive and need some advice/tips on who better to pull for


hassive-mitler

When i pulled for seph (only 11 pulls though) i got 1 off banner tifa and 1 seph. You might take your chance pulling seph to get off banner tifa


lloydsmith28

Hmm that's true as well


TomAto314

It sounds like you got it right. I went in more for Tifa because of her STMR. If you are really 50/50 then go for Seph since you can pull Tifa off banner on his but not vice-versa.


lloydsmith28

yeah the TMRs were also super close, i really liked seph's stmr and tifa's TMR


rp1414

Tifa’s TMR is actually not that good, the chain increase on that doesn’t do much for your damage (it’s different than SoS Lightning’s STMR)


lloydsmith28

i mean its extra damage on top of the atk bonus


XeroStrife

How many Tifa/sephiroth would be needed to get ex2 or 3? And is there a way to easily get the stmr multiple times if we get lucky enough to pull them or would it require stmr moogles?


TomAto314

If you want multiple STMR then absolutely use a moogle. Getting multiple to EX2 just for the moogle is a huge waste of frags. Check out the awakening infographic. https://i.imgur.com/BJPIT8m.jpg Remember we get 30 frags from logins. You can buy 50 with VIP after the banner and the frag dungeon gives 70. I do expect the frag dungeon shortly after Seph's banner.


XeroStrife

So together that gives enough to ex2 one unit. Assuming I could afford the vip frags. I’ve never heard or seen the dungeon, but I did a quick search to see what it was. Is there a consensus on stmr that are worth getting? I have a nv sora that I think would be good, but not sure what else.


TomAto314

The frag dungeon gives 5 frags per day for 14 days. You can bring in 5 different units, no dupes. So that's 70 frags per dungeon per unit. Tifa you definitely want as many STMRs as you can. For Seph, one is fine but two is nice. Sora you definitely want his STMR. That 75% LB is still unmatched.


XeroStrife

Thank you. I’m hoping for at least one Tifa, but I managed to pull 4 Sephiroth using all my tickets.


Takeyaki

Hey guys, I'm pretty new to the game and got a lot of NV units from pulls I made on lapis I got so far, so I just wanted to know/get some advice on what my team should be? Here are my NV units: Avalanche Tifa EX+1 Legendary Hero Sephiroth x2 Cobalt Blade Noctis EX+1 and 2 more dupes Cetra Descendent Aerith EX+1 White Dragon Ling Rain -Neo Vision- Louise x2 Dark Fina & Sol Mazurka Oracle Maiden Lunafreya Diverti x2 Royal Puppeteer Aphmau Melia EX+1 Noppy Kaktiria I appreciate any help, thanks!


TomAto314

Really depends on what you are doing. Tifa and Seph will pretty much demolish everything right now. So I'd just throw them in, maybe Aerith and Ling as well. Melia is a decent magic tank when you need her. Feel free to run them and then whatever else you want until you need to build a specific party for something.


Takeyaki

Actually my main team rn for most stuff are Tifa, Sephiroth, Aerith, Ling and Melia lol But I also wanted to know if there are any other team comps I can make from my NV list? I also heard of something called chainers (?) Not sure what that is, but do I have one and can it be used to replace anything in my current team?


TomAto314

Chainers are just units that well chain... If you use Aerith's brave shift limit burst that is actually a tag chain which chains by itself and doesn't need another unit. In the top right you'll see a chain bar fill up and 1-2-3-4-etc hits on the screen. Those are chains. Technically Tifa and Sephiroth can chain by using their skills that have SR in the top right, but that's a waste of their potential. You want to use their limit bursts to cap a chain. Ling has a skill that grants chain skills to any unit. So you can use those and then make anyone in your part a chainer. Early in the game's life chainers were the big deal, but now we've moved more toward finishers and gotten the chains from other methods like Ling or some esper skills etc.


Takeyaki

Ohhh I see, thank you so much!! I will probably keep with my current lineup then


kazemitsui

With the Perma VC Tickets, any must gets? I already have 2x Ling and 2x Louise. Not sure what other cards are "must" get. Do we know if they will add more cards, or nope?


TomAto314

I'd wait until the next non-premium unit goes off banner to see if it updates.


clgfandom

What's the cap for Jump damage ? VBArdyn already got a whole lot of Jump damage passive and also from his own gears.


PencilFrog

800%. You can see it on the unit's page, press details then the plus button.


NerZee

Will there be shards of Sephiroth to buy with VIP points or lapis?


jonidschultz

VIP points at 3x the normal cost when his banner ends. That's it outside of the Cash bundles.


NerZee

How many shards? I need 2 more Sephiroth's worth to get his Ex+3. Already dumped 800 tickets and am sick of clicking one by one. Like 3 years of hoarding gone 😭


jonidschultz

Fifty. We get 30 from logins and you can get 70 when the Shard Dungeon rolls around (should be within a month, I'm eagerly hoping sooner). So you need 5 copies to get his EX3 with one shard dungeon. 4 if you buy the bundles.


Lotso2004

Is there anywhere I can view the attacks and everything of non-trial/DV/SBB/etc. bosses? The wiki only has the stats/resistances/etc. if they’re, for example, a story boss (i.e. non-JRPG final boss Vlad). Not their abilities. Specifically for, well, Vlad. And, in relation to that, I can’t seem to find where Vlad’s immunities to either physical or magic (can’t remember which) damage come from. Since I specifically remember during S2 hitting Vlad and him being immune to some of the damage I’d deal. Any help’s appreciated!


LordAltitude

abilities, stats and skillsets and the like for story bosses are likely available somewhere in a datamine dump, but you will probably have to really search to find it. They just aren't something most people are going to feel the need to spend effort on unpacking and converting to a useful format on the wiki simply because of how trivial they are in the era of NV units. I mean, even most absolutely terrible NV units can still obliterate story bosses while practically naked, so why go through the effort of doing detailed info for them.


Atally

Heyo still have my 2 nv tickets left and was wondering what to pick. Just came back and pulled on tifa and managed to get some others including 2x behemoth and melo but not sure whats really good. Ppl keep saying faisy but I have ex0 char and 5 star sylvie with a fina/lid Thoughts? http://imgur.com/a/0nwgeuN


jonidschultz

Faisy is leaps and bounds better then Sacred Shield Charlotte, if that's who you're referencing, and Sylvie and Fina/Lid are totally different types of units. I'm not sure on the other unit as you seem to have most bases covered.


Atally

Just wondering whats really worth getting or even getting 2 of. Sounds like faisy will be the best pick for my 2 tickets?


jonidschultz

Yeah she's great at EX0 so definitely one of your picks. I personally like Noctis as his STMR is good, once he's EX1 he's solid damage etc... but you have a better Damage dealer so I'm not entirely sure. Locke is a good breaker but needs his EX1 iirc and that might not be easy.


Atally

Hmmm, guess I'll go faisy was considering gabranth but I already have 2 behemy


Industry_Standard

Question re: WD Ling. I have her geared full evade/provoke/LB. Durandal, Crimson Butterfly, Keeper's Cap, Führer's something, Dragon Brush, Moogle Charm, Refined Movement, Advanced Weaponry, Mood Maker, Mood Maker. I never have enough the first turn to use her BS skills (ie: killers). How's everyone else able to use them?


BPCena

You can't gear her for enough pre-emptive LB fill to use more than one of her killer buffs on T1, the max is 16-18 and they cost 15


Industry_Standard

Oh I gotcha. I'll throw on another pre-fill piece then. Looking at it, I'm only at 12.


BPCena

Call of the Wild is the one you're missing


Exeftw

Torn between picking up Gabranth or Edel with the NV Select ticket (still have yet to get either). Both are 'want' units, but Gabranth is still a super strong phys tank isn't he? I already have NV Aphmau, is he still worth getting in that sense?


majik0019

With Aphmau, you probably don't need Gabranth, Edel has a multi-castable Entrust in her kit that also comes with 300% ATK/MAG buffs, which makes her unique. She also has AoE Earth and Dark imbue. She's also still powerful (though not compared to Seph/Tifa) if you're willing to wait until like T12.


Exeftw

More to think about, thank you for the detailed response!


La-Roca99

Gab can tank both physical damage heavy trials all on his own, so yeah He also should get ex2 upgrades one day making him beefier


Exeftw

Great info, ty!


Blasphemantes

I have a few questions. I came back in the game after a year, i am new to NVs. - What are challenges and what they give? - What are chronicle battles? - Do Dark Vision cycle? - What are the best units per role? Like the best tank and so forth. - What do you do with a NV if you have only one copy? How do you get shards?


La-Roca99

Challenges are that, challenges, but nowadays they are all easy to do Chronicle battle are similar to Series Boss Battles, but in this case they have more levels(up to 10) and are used to upgrade gear(like cloud's sword) and units(insignias for FFVII units) Kinda? Each DV has unique bosses Gabranth for physical,Faisy for magical tank Sephiroth/Tifa for physical damage Louise/Lunafreya for magical damage NVA Shadow/Vinera for breaker Yuraisha NVA,Ling or Silvie as support As for shards, you can get them: -Another copy, gives you 50 shards and 1 pearl -Login bonus, gives you 30 shards during the first week fo the banner -VIP coin shop, can purchase fragments once the banner closes -Bundle shop, 5K lapis can give you 50 fragments for the unit also only during the first week of the banner except premium units -Daily dungeon(not avaliable atm) gives you 5 fragments/day for 14 days


clgfandom

Is it enough to just cap the score/EP in Raid, or do we need to do as much damage as possible ?


SXiang

You need to do 1b damage.


LordAltitude

I think it's a little less. I have still gotten the max score multiplier with a score as low as the mid 800k range.


La-Roca99

I just chain 3 SR chainers(remake cloud,nva tifa and NV charlotte), LB with cetra aerith and imperil+break with reno(autocasts breaks+imperil spell from ramuh) Enough to do like 50B on my own(charlotte hates reapers lol) max points and EP accounting best possible friend like barret or sephiroth for bonus drops


ifyougetit

How does elemental infusion work with naturally elemental abilities? For example, if I use Louise to infuse the team with fire and then use an ability that deals light, would I do light AND fire or just fire?


Kaiser369

Elemental imbues only work on physical attacks. In the example above, assuming the unit uses a physical attack, then that unit would deal fire and light damage. Keep in mind that damage using multiple elements will be averaged.


ifyougetit

Ok, that makes sense. Thanks!


La-Roca99

Both elements yes Lets say Sephiroth LB(dark element), noctis jump(light element) and Remake cloud LB(non elemental) Sephiroth would get dark+fire and light Noctis would get light+fire Cloud would get light and fire


ifyougetit

Alright, thanks!


iRexxar

Is the cow already ended? I was busy pushing stories the last few days and didn’t spend much time on it. Looks like a lot of rewards are missed…


Kaiser369

Yes. But we should get another CoW event soon.


La-Roca99

Next week actually


iRexxar

That’s great.


marcusdesalvo

Hi guys. Quick question: The Play Store version is not working with Memu again?


La-Roca99

Seems so


ONeiII

Is sof vaan still the best breaker at the moment? Trying to come up with a fun general use team. Yeah I’m aware everything is gimmick based but I’m just trying to have fun with what I have at the moment. Figure I’d have LH Seph, Faisy, Sora, ?? Breaker, and someone else for chaining I guess. Have any of you come up with some favorite ‘meta’ teams, if so which ones do you enjoy using?


TomAto314

Not the best, no. Just quite good. We have WD Ling and Ass Shadow. Some units have 90% breaks and even 87% are common.


ONeiII

Who has the 90% break?


Errormofone

Louise has a 90% spr break, and Vinera (limited unit) has a 90% def break


TomAto314

Vinera - DEF SoS Lightning/Louise - SPR Locke - ATK/MAG And one or two others. You won't keep a 100% uptime with 90% fullbreak though, but you also don't need to.


Samael113

Kaktiria can do 90% ATK/MAG too I believe.


ONeiII

I see. So I guess it’s safer just to use sof for full break? Rikku is a hell of a lot of fun and chains with Sora but he’s only at 80% I think


Muspel

Kaktiria can maintain 87% full breaks (and can spike up to a 90% ATK/MAG break once per fight via her grandis ability). White Dragon Ling isn't quite as good at actual breaking as Kaktiria, but has an incredible support kit to help make up for it. Vaan is inferior to several modern units in pretty much any realistic situation. He's still completely viable, mind you, and he's *very* far from bad. But he is absolutely not the best breaker by any stretch of the imagination. If you're using him, it's because you don't have someone better.


TomAto314

It really depends on what you're doing. A full break is generally never needed nowadays. In DV/CoW you are negating all damage so only DEF/SPR breaks are needed on kill turns. For trials, well those we just slam with Tifa/Seph now... but you will be fine with 80% ATK/MAG breaks depending on your tank, but you may want higher ATK/MAG breaks on heavy hitting turns like thresholds. Trials still generally have burst turns as well and the latest trials don't have passive stats so 90% makes a big difference over 80%. You'll want to keep up 80% DEF/SPR and then pop the 90% when you are ready to hit hard. Raids/MK/events you can get by with just 80% DEF/SPR breaks and you should turn 1 them all so ATK/MAG aren't needed. Story and story events no breaks are needed whatsoever.


Baithin

Hi all, I’m looking to play this game pretty much just to experience the story. I don’t really care to get the best units or anything or power everyone up. I have decent enough units, I think, but how strong do I need to be to just do story? And about how long does it take and how many “seasons” of the story are there currently in the GL version of the game? Thanks!


SXiang

7* units can murder the story in the face with little problem. We are approaching the end of season 3.


Baithin

Great, thank you!


unitedwesoar

Pulled a nv charlotte from the nv tickets i got from the exchange shop after i had to pity seph. Ik she got upgrades on jp, how is she now burst wise and clue if we might see them in global . or should i just assume they get ex2 buff treatment in gl.


SXiang

IIRC she uses master crowns, which are hella rare, to get upgraded. Don't know how well she did with them, tho. And there's NO way to know how they will handle master crowns on GL since they hate buffing old units.


unitedwesoar

O its crowns to update her damn i thought it was just a revamp to her. That kind of changes things unless they change the crown system. Thank you


ffbe-stryfe

Does anyone have a link the FFBE Exporter APK? (forgot to keep that after wiping my machine, don't ask...)


Industry_Standard

*Too much 2D titty browsing.*


ffbe-stryfe

Lol.


PencilFrog

silverchain_MY

So, after all my pulls im ended with 6 tifas and 3 Sephiroth. Question, should i get all their tmr and stmr before fragmenting? If not all, how many should i get and fragment the rest.


SXiang

~4 and 2 STMRs. The TMRs don't matter as much.


silverchain_MY

Got it, tysm! Btw, i still have enough lapis to do one more rotation of 68k for sephy. Is it worth to use it and hope i could get enough to ex3 him? Or just wait for vip shop and get him to ex2 and done?


KhaotikDevil

Just curious what people are running in terms of buffer? We got a major boost in the last year with Yoshikiri, NVA Yuraisha, WD Ling, and then Sylvie is actually viable as a 7*. I like Ling, but Sylvie just has so... many... tools. It is ridiculous and she's not even an NV. Thoughts? Noting for Ling that, without even pulling on her banner, I've got 2 at EX2 (for Vision Card and STMR) and another one I pulled going for ATifa. Thanks!


Samael113

If you are talking objectively for meta, there is no beating Ling and Sylvie in general. Even when you need something specific they don't offer, one of them is still present in the party.


roly_florian

I tend to forgot a lot Sylvie... i'm often using Yoshikiri or Yuraisha. I really do need to remind about Sylvie more often !


Oleandervine

Ling's selling point for me is the team mirage. She's also got a leg up on Sylvie due to more potent mitigations, and the capability to *team* gift chaining and multicast. Otherwise, I think Yuraisha is my second favorite due to the capability to pull imperils from the team, along with her secondary healing capabilities in a pinch. Plus, I just love Granny Hess in general.


VisharAhut

Ling has wide use in many situations. Sylvie can be very useful for quick kill strategies and Cetra Aerith is also a very powerful LB buffer.


BPCena

Ling for DV and probably CoW, Sylvie for quick wins on stuff like the dummy and previous MK daily


SXiang

I use whichever is good for the content I'm doing. There is no 'this one is the best one to bring every time' answer.


Leo_butNotDaVinci

Do in-game boost provided by abilities infinitely stack or does the abilty with the higher parameter boost take over? For example, if I use 2 abilities that give the following boosts: (ATK by 100%) and (DEF by 100%) (ATK by 250%) and (DEF by 250%) Will this result in my units having a 350% boost in both ATK and DEF or will I only get 250?


La-Roca99

Strongest is the one that takes priority regardless of usage But Lets say +100% buff lasts for 6 turns, and +250% only for 3 If you dont renew the 250% buff, once it runs out, the +100% buff will be active instead


hocuspocusupvoticus

You get 250 for both.


Valerium2k

For fun I just had a look at NV Firion awaken, and to my surprise I had 75 fragments for him and I have no idea where they came from. Did we really get that many of those 10/15 NV Firion fragments in a few of those past farm events? I basically always bought every one of those shards even for units I didn't even have.


La-Roca99

Give me a sec and I check my count given I havent pulled him yet I only have 50, and I have purchased every NV unit fragments too, so thats weird


roly_florian

I have 55. But there was at least 2 event shard farm where we couldn't get the whole shard and we had to make choices between NV/NVA shard combination. But i wonder why i have 55 when 2 of you got 50


La-Roca99

I skipped NVAs in that case like DKLeon who I couldnt even awaken back then lol but yeah I wonder that too


Valerium2k

Well I have 125 but 50 of those is from a dupe. I cant image we really had that many from events, I dunno maybe I bought VIP coins and I forgot.


Samael113

I think Firion should pre-date the VIP rework and VIP fragments.


jonidschultz

I also only have 50 and usually pick up Frags wherever possible. So very weird.


La-Roca99

Could be that Iirc fragments were changing between events, so it was not possible to have the same fragments again in the next one


Tokolosh007

Hi guys, I went all in for Tifa and luckily I got her to EX2, according the builder TDH is better than TDW (don’t have Edel’s or DV gloves) so I want to get cross aigalon arm, is there an easy way to 1TKO scorn of Machina?


The_First_Fyre

Also make sure in the builder your putting in for your chains if your capping a chain. Makes a difference. Been forgetting about that feature and wondered why it told me to use cross aigion was better than dual edel stmr fists


Tokolosh007

Missed that feature too! That makes quite the difference!


La-Roca99

TDH is only better than TDW if you have the gear to maximize it, including lightning STMR and COW crown DV Gloves should be your next target, but without them go with aquatic gnaw(scorn of dark ifrit) and the IW fists


Tokolosh007

Thx! I do have Lightning’s STMR, not the CoW Crown though. Didn’t thought about dark ifrit, will check the trial and see if I’m able to complete it.


La-Roca99

Considering it was an early 7* era trial, you should lol


Tokolosh007

Thrue, but I’m sometimes a moron and can’t keep up with the rotation 😅


La-Roca99

Anything from NV Era should one shot it regardless of rotation


Tokolosh007

See, I’m a moron. Already cleared that trial 🤣 already had tiger fangs. Currently running Wildfang heirloom and subjugator knuckles.


La-Roca99

It happens man, no worries Still congrats tho


rp1414

Do you only need 1 Biggs & Wedge for Arena, or is it better to run duplicates?


tzxsean

The question is why you want to make life difficult for ppl?


rp1414

Actually I do set my team to suicide LMS for people to go against me, but for weeks when the reward is the King Burst Pots I get a team to win when I do it, then set the team pack to LMS Just because someone asks how to easily win in Arena doesn’t mean it’s to set the team to be a dick


La-Roca99

Because yes


soul_u_say

Bonus unit: Only the highest bonus is used, so having multiple solely for the bonus is pointless. Berserk/Auto: They tag-chain, so they can be run solo and still be fine. That said, having a full team of them removes any need to bother with chain timings (though 2 should be enough to wipe pretty most/all arena teams if using DW + Aurora Scarf or similar, looking at my 24k HP FEdel).


xT4skM4st3Rx

1 is enough, otherwise you may auto destroy poor noobs.


Infinite_Message2046

how do you guys auto-max LB aerith? i got her stmr equipped already but she only has like 80% filled.


soul_u_say

Leveling up her LB lowers the LB cost. At max level, its low enough that the auto-fill will max it out.


Infinite_Message2046

oh cool! I MLBd it immediately. Thanks!!


imnotamoderator

How do people go about leveling espers efficiently? I'm struggling to get Espers to max level at 3*


TomAto314

Don't max level every esper. Many are useless like Siren. Get enough for the killers first then the other important stuff. But it takes a loooong time.


imnotamoderator

Thank you !


Grand-Escape6933

Expedition is the only way


NiamLeeson

Can someone give me the rundown on the Bartz/Faris wind combo? I finally got them both to ex1 and was hoping to make them the backbone of my wind teams from now on


hocuspocusupvoticus

Faris can 85% break, wind field, and 130% wind imperil. Bartz can enable party AR for chaining, wind amp, and wind imbue


soul_u_say

* Faris' Norm LB: +25% physical wind damage field * Bartz's BS: "Blessed Wind Crystal" => +45% AoE wind amp buff Both of these stack with one another, in addition to element/weapon imperils and others.


NiamLeeson

Awesome, thank you


Blasphemantes

Does the game have a new way to deal damage? Like evoke damage or something? I got back in the game after a year break, and I am so overwhelmed by the changes NV brought


soul_u_say

https://exvius.fandom.com/wiki/Mechanics#Damage Beyond the addition of area effects, element amps, and weapon imperils, the general damage formula remains the same. Evoke damage, while not new, has seen renewed interest with the new evokers getting good cumulative mods to make them competitive. The only other change to the damage dealers is a higher focus on finishers, particularly LB finishers.


Popotecipote

Chaining wise, who has the highest modifier in his/her skills? (Not LB), is it Riku with x92? Without taking into account other skills that further increase them


bosoneando

Plenty of chainers above Riku: Loren's Twin Blade Dancer is 100x, Vlad's Lone Mirror of Equity 100x, Chorale's Shadow Whip starts at 100x and reaches 200x, Kaktiria's Oasis Retribution and Desert Fury are 107x, Zidane's True Stellar Circle 5 is 110x,...


Czarzu

I was thinking about that future new item that allows a 7\* to equip a VC, there was one that gave x50 modifiers to all skills or something like that, I thought about giving it to Riku, he could potentially reach x250 and can be triple casted, but I'm not very good with numbers so idk how good that'd be


hocuspocusupvoticus

Probably reflected ga spells from PH Vivi

MikonJuice

Whats the best course of action for Sephiroth? Try to pull 2, get both stmr and then merge to get Sephiroth +1? Plus 2 counting the crystal that we are receibing daily?


rp1414

Don’t rush 2 of his STMR, it’s not as great as Tifa’s was where you would want to get 4. For Seph, if you only get 1 just for him that’s ok, as it’s just a high ATK clothes for anyone else (and there are other clothes that either have LB or just a bit less ATK). But I have a good number of STMR moogle, so I used 1 on the Seph I was breaking down. Then got my other Seph to EX1. Then when I get this Seph to EX2 I’ll get another copy of his STMR


RevelintheDark

Saw that the masamune +3 recipe was given today via the daily challenge, but no feather to craft it, is that correct or did i miss something?


BPCena

Feather tomorrow, then +4 recipe Sunday and final feather Monday

Not according to the [wiki](https://exvius.fandom.com/wiki/The_Arbiters_of_Fate#Lvl._3) and [Aenigma's datamine](https://github.com/aEnigmatic/ffbe/commit/2ddaf511b6c0c57bcc0c33b0c635fac4f2f831f4#diff-bf65f954123b4d05cfac1fbe144d5a969b0ec429c1bd298f97408440126171f1). Saturday and Sunday the rewards are just tickets and pots, and the final Feather on Monday. Masamune only gets +3, the same as in JP (the news are wrong).

Ty

The Arbiters of Fate Lvl. 5 will give you the last feather. Please wait for the battle to become available.


RevelintheDark

Got it thx


Xaschax

Some people called refunds for the seph banner due to missing and bad rates, how probable is that realistically?


rp1414

All those people had to do was reload the rates page and it would come up.


Better_Ability_125

Unless there can do what JP did to WotV and pull out a series of snapshots indicating signs of no randomness which warranted an investigation and PR emergency, it is highly unlikely;


Samael113

Rates were available. Complainers were just lazy, disappointed and feeling unreasonably entitled. Unless there is something actually wrong in the coding for the rates, which has happened only once that I can remember, 0%. It was only for a 5\* Cloud unit. Compensation was up to 3 or 4 copies of that cloud unit for people that pulled on the banner. So even if something is actually wrong, don't get your hopes up that compensation will be a 60k Lapis refund.


bosoneando

It has happened a couple more times (Shera, Regina). But this is clearly not one of them.


SephYuyX

Whats the best rotation for Speh and Tifa?


Samael113

Pretty sure Seph is just (LB) - Magnus - LB - LB - LB - LB There isn't much to his kit.


BPCena

Tifa is much the same. Note that both should switch to base form for imperil+magnus if you're not using an external imperil


SephYuyX

When you say imperil, are you meaning via their chain skill, or via their LB? Triple cast Magus/NVchain/NVchain > BS LB > BS LB > BS LB?


BPCena

Base LB has a higher imperil but takes an extra turn and likely requires entrust support. So you could do something like: Entrust rotation - BS LB, base LB, magnus, BS LB Non-entrust - BS LB, base form chain+chain+magnus, BS LB


SephYuyX

BS LB for stacking though, right? I wasn't sure if it was worth doing Normal LB > Magus > BS LB > BS LB > BS LB > BS LB


Samael113

pretty much. Unless you are running without a breaker that can do better than 80% there is no real reason to use his normal LB, they both imperil Katana by 25% and have the same raw damage. Only difference really is the break on normal form and 75% power-up on BS form.


FenrirOD

I'm at EX+ 2 for Sephiroth and I have 110 shard available currently. I think there's about 70 shards left from the VIP shop and the log ins, is there anyway to get the remaining 20 shards?


SephYuyX

30 Login, 50 VIP, 70 from upcoming dungeon.


FenrirOD

Oh nice, do you happen to know when the upcoming dungeon will drop?


SephYuyX

Around a month or so maybe, and assuming it does come back, and stays for two weeks.


Valtent

How many of NV Sephirot's STMR is worth to get? I got three copies of the anime swordsman


SephYuyX

I STMRd an additional one, and used EX2 on another, leaving my main available for another STMR if need be.


TomAto314

2 max, but probably 1 is fine. If you are short on moogles then don't matter about it.


RevelintheDark

Hey Tom why do you say only 2 max? I thought you'd want these dope threads on every phys damage dealer you have available.


Errormofone

The extra damage is nice, but there are other STMR chest pieces that give killers that you would situationally use.


TomAto314

Lack of killers or LB really limits who wants them.


RevelintheDark

Hmmmmm. i guess yeah but man the availability of multiples of all 8 races of chest pieces is pretty damn low for non whales.


TomAto314

Sure, but now you are in a situation where you are gearing 3+ DPS, have none of those killer chest pieces, or they don't apply and all DPS can wear the chest piece. I'm not saying you'll never use 3, but the situations are few and far between. And if you that big of a tryhard, you aren't listening to my advice anyways and going to pick them up regardless!


RevelintheDark

>And if you that big of a tryhard, you aren't listening to my advice anyways LOL ok ok got it. I guess its worth saving the moogle.


Kristopherbm3

I need a carry for Chimera, I've been trying to do it and I can easily tank it but I am lacking damage, if anyone could help me pls let me know, this is my code: 420589823


noseofzarr

What unit do you want for damage?


Kristopherbm3

I am not picky, your choice I have: Phylasis, Ibara, Aerith, Kefka, DarkFina&Sol, Serah and Shui yu from the top of my head, the one you feel easier to build or the one you used for max difficulty.


noseofzarr

MMM, I can do Physalis EX1, Ibara EX2. Do you mean Cetra Aerith? I can do her at EX2. Pick one and let me know how you need it built, ie elem res, or whatever. edit, forgot, have Solina at EX1 as well


Kristopherbm3

This is what I need for the fight, Max demon/beast killer mage, that does ice/lightning damage which means Phylasis is top pick follow by Ibara, check which one is easier for you to build with killer and I'll use the same. Edit: also let me know which position you left the unit.


noseofzarr

Alright, I will build Physalis for you, are you going to use her LB, or just chain?


Kristopherbm3

Chain


noseofzarr

[Got this hand build](https://ffbeEquip.com/builder.html?server=GL#da404a20-f6d7-11eb-8f20-99ea285b4797) if you want it. The Builder is being slooooowwwww, but it will wind up being much better than this. Let me know!


Kristopherbm3

Guess so, I mean that’s already better than mine with the builder.


noseofzarr

Ever finish with that battle? Builder updated, and the optimized version is up now.


noseofzarr

Request sent, IGN darknut. She is in Nem 1.


Samael113

So, After my 210+ tickets on Seph, and my almost 6% NV rate, I am left with only 2 units I don't have that are available in the NV select ticket's options. NV Lasswell and NV Faris. Faris is available via CoW rewards, so she's ruled out. The question is, is Lasswell's STMR worth more than Noctis' EX+2 (already have one of Noctis' STMR)? Insect killer is nice, but is it that nice? Because I don't see any other real practical use for Lasswell right now.


unitedwesoar

Id go ex2 noctis sol in dv this month is weak to light


RevelintheDark

Ex2 noct is a solid damage increase over ex1, lasswell is mostly useless now depending on your other magic dds. That being said i picked up 2 of lass stmr because when I eventually need them for DV or COW ill be glad i have them.


need2crash

Friendpoint as gift? didnt use to give 20 and not 10? i been while since i even use it as point but i remeber it 20 if gifted?


hassive-mitler

We haven’t gotten our 5k lapis from the compensation for the future update right?


BPCena

No, should be around the beginning of September


jonidschultz

No.


Samael113

I would expect it when they break it in 3-4 weeks.


JiyoXIV

What have you guys been putting up as friend units? Trying to figure out what's most helpful to people. I always have a relevant bonus unit and then SL Elena in bonus 2 but not sure what else could be 'nice' to have (besides at least one op unit like NV Seph of course).


-Xaehou-

Err.. EX1 Tifa max LB with her natural killers max Mediocre EX0 Sephi for raid (lb damage some killers but not much atk) EX1 NVA Barret Gun things/Passive provoke/evade BS for raid I guess? EX2 Cetra Aerith SPR thingys for Holy Nuke EX2 Zidane LB damage Plant/reaper cause im lazy


hassive-mitler

Fav Ex1 Tifa geared for amon (300% LB damage, 300% reaper killer) Event 1 Ex0 Seph for raid Event 2 Ex3 NVA Reno for KM and CB Nem 1 Ex2 Luna with 30% fire resist Nem 2 Ex1 Physalis for genie


ChrisVx32

Ex2 Sephiroth. 52k lapis left. F2P. Go bankrupt for Ex3 or go to sleep?


Samael113

How many Seph's did you pull total? Did you hit the first pity yet? I ask because with 5 Seph's, 3k VIP, the 30 login frags and one daily dungeon, which should be 4-5 weeks out, you should have an EX+3 Sephiroth.
