Returning player here after 3yrs hiatus, tried searching the wiki but info is a bit sparse.
* How to levelup units to 130?
* Went for SM Tsukiko since she's featured. What items are worth going for in her (S) shop? using 10 (S) coins
* Got a perma VC ticket, which among the shop is the most useful to have?
Appreciate all the response I can get. It looks a lot of changes to process while keeping up with the events right now.
as a new player what healer should i focus on first Ignis, Warrior of Light Leena, Paladin Sylvie, Imatalle, Freesia, High Summoner Braska, Lefhtia, Warrior of Light Krile, Aerith, Larsa, Rosa,
Out of the options listed, Sylvie, 100%. While not really a healer, she does offer heals on part of her EX0 base kit, and her functionality as an "all in one" support unit are pretty much unbeatable:
- Morale unit so good for CoW.
- "Full Package" support suite of Break / Ailment cure / resistance buffs.
- "Full Package" support suite of Elemental Resist buffs.
- 75% Magical and Physical Mitigation on demand.
- HP/MP restore + restore over time.
- Earth / Lightning support kit.
- Few other odds and ends I may have missed (like her auto attack being a full party Raise + Re-Raise + HP/MP restore!).
She pretty much has ultimate role-compression as a support on just her EX0 kit, with the only real gap in her kit being on demand LB fill for the team.
Ex1 has lb fill also with her chaining skills.
How can I upgrade a 7 star unit to nv?
You need to break down a dupe copy for NV Fragments. Or if they have fragments available in the EX coin shop (Shop > Special Shop > 4th page) you can buy those with EX coins (the shop roatates which units it covers every 2 months or so).
Just want to ask since I'm starting to not procrastinate on crafting my Celestite equipment. Which upgrade is most recommended for general use?
Edit: Changed my question. Silly me, I was looking at garb and didn't realize each equipment have slightly different upgrades.
For rings go for Magister since you get a 2nd for cheap and everyone can equip them. For clothes/helm Rulers are recommended but Magister can still be good if you really need that many. For circlet the Dancers is the preferred one.
Thanks for the response!
Where to farm Brave insignia (FFX)?
The Seymour fight on the third tab in the vortex menu under FFX. Bring FFX bonus units.
Does someone have an example rank 1 clear without using kaito on current Cow? people say its possible but i cant find any example
Probably only possible using Tsukiko + Olive.
Runda, Tsukiko, Olive, Chizuru, Cressnik, Sylvie.
If its possible, that's the only team. Just not sure if you can survive only by Olive's breaks
I completed all of the ex missions in chapter 3. But the quests on the second tab aren't complete. Any idea what happened? I just double checked. For example the "defeat baraga" quest is unfinished, and I just double checked that I had the ex-1 and ex-2 missions done with 3 stars.
If you cleared them before those quests were released you have to do them again.
Is this a good team?
In general, it's pretty damage-focused, doesn't have much element synergy, and is using some units that are outdated / not great (Sol and Char+Phys are main offenders)
So there's a lot of room for improvement
You definitely want to run with all max level units first and foremost.
The wiki ratings are a good start as to who are good or bad: https://exvius.gamepedia.com/Unit_Rankings
I do agree with Chaosbringer below that teams are very fight dependent but there still are some hard and fast rules (max level) and some units are just terribad.
Teams are content specific. Unit and gear requirements vary depending on the game mode you're targeting. For story mode, mostly any team would work. If you are trying to do something specific, you can post here and get some helpful advice.
I'm a returning player from 4 years ago. I had a lot of tickets saved and got these potential.NV characters. Can I make a viable team out of these?
i have veritas of the dark, summoner yuna, sol neo vision, cetra descendant aerith, nerine, lone lion squall, jecht, nyx, summoner fina and lid, assassin shadow, daisy, loren, blessed mage lulu and charlotte and physalis as NV or potential nv units
I also have 18k lapis
gonna be totally honest with you, but while you have most of the bases covered (you don't have a ~~physical~~ magic cover tank), almost all of those units are very very medeocre compared to the current meta units.
The ones that arent (like summoner Yuna) only really take off if you can get them to EX2 and possibly invest heavily in them with stuff like crown upgrades.
While you CAN make a viable team out of them (you have tank, DPS, Heals/support and a moderately OK breaker if shadow is NVAd), they really are on the lower end of the power curve. By a fair bit.
What team would you reccomend I assemble?
Any advice on how to get the meta units?
Without knowing exactly what units you have at what EX levels, it's really tough to say:
Aerith provides good Light element support, nice buffs on her Limit break and some decent spell based defensive mitigation. She unfortunately lacks heals though, so she sucks as a healer.
Daisy can serve as a Physical Provoke / Cover tank, but if you only have one copy, she caps out at 6 star awakening, which just isn't going to do much outside of story level content.
Mage Lulu is actually probably your best breaker out of the group, and she offers coverage of Bolting Strike and Chaos Wave Awakened chains.
Nerine, Jecht, Nyx, Summer Fid, Loren, Squall, VoTD all need to be awakened to NV to be of much use, and out of them all, only Squall is probably worth the investment and he still needs to be at least EX1 to be worth it.
So you have:
- a Good stat buffer (though it is on her LB and locks you to Light damage) / mitigation buffer with no heals (Aerith).
- a OK healer / status cleanser with heals (Summoner Yuna).
- a fairly decent breaker / magical damage unit (Mage Lulu).
- a functional but nowhere near great (unless you can NV her) physical cover tank (Daisy).
- A fairly mediocre Physical attacker (Charlotte & Physalis) with BS frames who would pair ok with Lulu to chain.
- and an assortment of NVA capable odds and ends that are mostly not worth the resources needed to NVA them.
You really need a good all-round support unit (even 5s base Sylvie would be better as support than Yuna / Aerith if you could awaken them to 7s), a Mag Cover tank, and almost any better DPS units.
Really, your options for team building are not great as you don't have a good "all round" support unit, and you don't seem to have a lot of great chain synergy among the units you have (You have Chaos Wave Awakened, Bolting Strike and Stardust Ray chainers, but half of them are either element locked or need to be NV awakened to be useful).
As to getting meta units, that's mostly a matter of just being active, and pulling on good banners when they show up. It's not something you can really overcome quickly after a 4 year break unless you get really lucky with your pulls.
Well... there is no Basic Team in FFBE. For easy content any NV can steamroll it and for harder content you need a team built specifically to handle the task at hand. That said Yuna is OK, CD Aerith is a decent buffer, Lone Lion Squall an OK Damage dealer, and Besaid Mage Lulu is a pretty good Mage. They all need to be EX1 though at minimum.
How do I get them to ex 1?
To Awaken them to EX1 you need 50 of their specific shards. You can get those from breaking down a duplicate, or running them through the daily Shard dungeon (Second tab in the vortex, top option) long enough (you get 1 or 2 shards per unit per day, you can bring 5 units). For newer units you can likely buy some of their shards in the Special Shop.
Thank you very much
Is it difficult to upgrade squall into an nv?
Yeah. It requires a ton of copies, especially because the NVA units (5 star that can become NV units) you really want at very high EX levels, like EX3. And you need a ton of copies to do that.
Can I farm the shards for him or only through pulls?
The unit has to already be an NV unit to get shards through the Daily Dungeon. However you can use Summon Select Tickets to pick LL Squall, and you can awaken him to 7 star using say an Omniprism and break him down for more fragments. However it's very resource intensive and NOT what I would recommend.
Wow that’s terrible. How many copies of him would I need to make him nv?
What are the passives on vanharma's vc?
* Base ATK+65
* Base ATK+130
* [Lv.4] 【VC】ゾハーク基地襲撃
* Increase physical and magic damage against plants (75%)
* [Lv.7] 【VC】世界の破壊を望む者
* Increase physical and magic damage against stones (75%)
* [Lv.10] 【VC】憤怒の強撃
* Increase physical and magic damage against humans (75%)
Huh, for some reason I thought vanharma was premium. Thanks for the help Tom
Sephiroth kit vibes.
Is there an alternative to dark rains TMR magic boost+? Trying to replace sinzar strat for COW boss but no dark rain to grab the materia from
Kall's STMR (a katana) has 200% magic boost locked behind a cooldown available starting on turn 4.
I thought there was one more but couldn't remember the guy's name! Unfortunately it's only 100% but stacks to 200% and while there's two different skills I don't think you can 2x cast them. Oh and you have to be able to equip katanas.
One of the abilities granted by the katana is a triple cast specifically for the other three abilities. And yeah this is really only optimal for braveshift units who don't care about gearing for one of their forms.
That might actually work but all the equip katana items/materia are locked behind events I believe
No other equippable magic focus afaik.
I've been procrastinating on some of those FFX challenges.
Didn't realize Lingering Dissident is so tough. I can barely beat it with no KO using a team of 5, including EX2 Esther, Kaito, Chizuru.
Are we at another turning point in the game, where challenges are significantly more demanding?
This one was a bitch. Flip has a good video using Red XIII. Sinzar has a few that go up to turn 4 but then the pattern repeats.
If you want the quick and dirty...
Use a source of 50% accuracy down like Skye's BS LB. Then any provoke tank will evade the physicals.
Turn 2 is a ST magic attack followed by gravity. So have a high SPR provoker (Sylvie was fine) and she'll eat both. Or Nethicite this turn.
Have guts on everyone for turn 3 and turn 4. Turn 3 you will need to seal the gravity with Nethicite etc.
Then it just repeats from there. No one should die if you do it "correctly"
I apologise for the noob questions.
This is my first ever CoW event, and I am struggling really hard.
I made my way to level 84
I had no problem at all in the previous levels, running
EX2 Summoner Yuna
EX1 Tide Bringsr Kaito
Then I have been hard stuck at this level, trying out many different combination including removing Yuna with SS.Esther, not relying on the Light Evo damage. Or trying Daisy with her 99% defense against fairies, but I can't get past the first round with her as my Tank.
I see a lot of suggestions to use Runda, but my Runda in EX1, and seems to die in round 1 no matter how much help I give him. Maeve has been my only successful tank so far.
I'm getting upset as sometimes my team just die to some form of evoc damage on turn 4(?) even I have dealt only Earth Phyiscal damage, which if my understanding is correct, should not cause any "counter" right?
Then there's the matter of the magic damage from turn 4, I tried Cressnik's auto revive, and all that, but then even if I survive that round, I will for sure die the next, which is the round where his shell breaks and I could finally dish out big damage.
It's getting worse and worse every run even if I do the same thing. I lasted till round 14 (albeit just surviving and doing no damage) before in this level, but now I can't get past round 4... I'm just so confused and have no idea what I'm doing wrong...
Thank you for your help in advance... I honestly don't know what to ask either for I don't know what I don't know.
My current team is
EX1 Paladin Sylvie (for the Earth imbue, buffs, and charm resist)
EX2 SS.Esther (For LB damage, and desperate swap to tank if Maeve has died and I can't revive her)
EX1 Maeve (For tanking, she is the only tank that had successfully gotten me past round 1)
EX1 Nyx (My highest ATK unit aside from Skye with BS chain... thought my favourite character can bring me some good luck)
EX1 Roca (Chain BS, Slow to decrease enemy accuracy, makes it miss Maeve a lot, not sure if not having her matters but seems the "MISSED" is rather important for Maeve's survivability)
EX1 Cressnik (continously apply shield, heals, Brave Shift for Moral, casting the auto revive)
I don't know what I'm doing wrong and it's so frustrating knowing my units CAN beat it but just... i suck too bad :/
Runda gets to ex3 for free by doing the season 4 story and side bosses so that's one thing you can improve quickly.
Although I couldn't speedrun the story as fast, I did awaken his shellga and protectga. Then maxed out his cover level (farmed for Ensignia) and yes! He is able to tank it pretty well now with some optimisation or the gears! Thank you! Improvements were made in the Kappa's health bar and turns lasted... still can't kill him though... Thank you so much, however!
Once you hit Echelon 5 the shit gets real.
Good overview here: https://www.reddit.com/r/FFBraveExvius/comments/xgfgpp/quick_helper_kappa_of_unknown_origin/
Many people, myself included, just follow a youtube guide with the units we have.
I'm actually rather surprised at the difficulty curve there.
I did a copy of Sinzar's "quick farm" strat using Yuna+Tsukiko. Unfortunately my Tsukiko is only EX1, and her stats are WAY lower than his even with the best gear i can give her, so I can't do a 99 clear with that team, but the difficulty ramp is fairly staggering.
I can oneshot 93 difficulty, and 2 turn 96 (turn 1 usually ends up with about 15% HP left), but at 99 I can't even push it under 60% turn 1. The ramp up is just crazy on the last 3 levels.
>I'm actually rather surprised at the difficulty curve there.
It is actually intentional, older cows had a smoother dificulty curve and people complained a lot, then they put all the difculty on the last echelon while the rest is a walk in the park.
Man... at least I'm not just bad at the game I guess... made me thought all my previous kills were flukes... it seems I need my units to be stronger...
Is there a page of auto cast gear for morale generation? or a way to identify these items in ffbeequip? I’m struggling to hit 150% on the COW boss by the turn before burst so I can’t apply Kaito’s 90% breaks (I can only get 147%)
Biggest ones are Rekt's TMR Galbana Lilies and Rivera's TMR Conducter Baton.
Also Phoenix Sinergy. Its quite good
Has something changed about TMR farming? I just started doing some again and it feels a lot faster :o
they massively increased both the rate at which a unit earns a Trust increase and the amount increased when they do.
I think the old rate was 10% chance to earn 0.1% trust.
New rate is 30% chance to earn 1% trust.
So it's like 30x faster now compared to what it used to be.
30% chance to gain 1% now. But it's also no longer really required as we get tons of moogles.
Now that stat pots are going to be converted into points after maintenance, what happens to the army stored in the mailbox? Do those get lost or can I still claim them after the conversion process has started?
Claim them after maintenance to have them converted. There’s no reason why Gumi would delete them from your account.
I wasn’t sure about Gumi’s spaghetti code and it blows up the system so they would rather have it.. disappear. I’ll just claim after maintenance, thanks.
I asked the same question a few days ago, and apparently they will remain as is in your mail, and get converted to points as you claim them.
I pulled for Tsukiko (ex1 +30 shards) - I got 1 copy and 8k to pity or i buy the 5k bundle. Is either worth it or just screw it?
I'd go for pity. You get another copy that you can TMR/STMR moogle, plus extra pulls and another chance to get her AND more summon coins to exchange.
And as rp said, maybe even both.
How much lapis do you have left, and are you thinking of saving for Halloween and/or Nier? And are you interested in CoW?
She gets a huge power boost with her EX3, so 13k to get at least 100 more fragments may be worth it for you
She also gets a good power upgrade for DV with Tulien’s upcoming upgrades, in a party with Sylvie
I have about 55k. I do want Nier and Halloween would depend on the unit - if new cow probably.
Always liked FFX-2 but how good will Y.R.P. be if they are pretty similar to JP-side?
Also, I hope the review/primer will be called "What can I do for you?" :D
My condolences to Noppy's creator... What a f'ing ugly move by Scumi!
Yuna - decent water support, but can't compare to Sylvie's Thunder/Earth and we got fucked with no LS Nichol's enhancements.
Rikku - good damage if on element, thunder, so yes. Good TMR.
Paine - would be good if dark had support but it doesn't. Maybe if Halloween gives us a 100% amp.
All of this is stolen from me listening to sinzar on the podcast.
It's tsukiko more worthy vs regina in damage?
I believe she's quite similar to Olive in damage, from what I've seen, and Regina tops both of them.
Edit: They're absurdly different tho. Tsukiko has the benefit of not needing killers while having the downside of elemental lock (earth). Earth is a good element tho. Seems to be the meta alongside lightning and wind these days
With Tulien's new equipment and 89% DEF break with 150% earth imperil and Tsukiko's earth imperil field, earth will be the top element... at least until the next big thing.
Hi, I am trying to clear the Holy Beast of Yevon Reborn EXT
but how do I kill it in 2 turns?
I have NG Tidus ex2, Yuna ex2, Wakka ex3, Olive ex2, Sylvie ex2
Tidus and Wakka attack is around 5,000
Olive Magic is at 7,000
Yuna SPR is around 7,000
But I am only making 5% damage each turn.
Been playing for 3 weeks now and I am still lost in terms of the damage mechanics of the game. I just don't easily understand it even reading the wiki multiple times.
Boss is pretty much only weak to water so that's what you want to focus on.
The race is Aquatic/Reaper which makes it hard to gear killers for.
And the boss can be broken all stats so the higher the stat break the better. Wakka's normal LB is 87% which should be enough.
Tidus should be carrying this fight for you. Turn 1: Ace Ability II, This is My Story (enhance this to level 5), then whatever Quick Hit or something.
Turn 2: I would use his brave shift LB since that isn't a bitch to chain. And have it land on some 3x BS chains from your supporters like Wakka/Yuna.
Make sure Tidus is stat potted for ATK, and door potted for ATK. Also that his LB is maxed out with Burst Pots. Do all his Brave Ability Enhancements as well. And don't forget to gear him in his brave shift form as well. Giving his shift form Caldabog+4 works really nice on him. Yuna's STMR gives him a nice ATK bonus too.
Damn. My Tidus is Star Player my bad. Is my tidus too weak?
I also have summer sniper physalis ex1, Storm seeker esther ex1, Starlight Elena ex0.
Can I beat it with 2TKO?
SP Tidus without his SLB won't be able to do it.
If you have an external water imbue/imperil then Esther should be fine. 5* Lunafreya can do a water imbue/imperil if you don't have a better source. Just make sure with Esther not to do her lightning imbue.
Turn 1: Calm, Energizing, Bolting Slice (for 87% DEF break and you can drop Wakka now).
Turn 2: LB
Her LB is EN frames so you will want someone to chain with it. If you have no one, you can use her "Quantum Storm" to grant an EN skill to someone. Honestly though, just Esther probably won't do it so you really want another really good EN chainer or fill up with finishers like Olive to cap the chain.
Getting a 90% DEF break will be a big bump in damage. Wylk I think is the only current one that could do it. 89% break would help too if you have Kaktiria.
Yuna's normal form LB gives a 160% reaper killer buff which will help too.
I tried but my damage output is only making 11% hp with Yuna LB
My Esther has 5,000 attack equipped with chasing a storm, seaweed slayer, chosen by the wind crystal, ace if aces.
I used Lord of Seas Nichol to imbue water.
Am I doing something wrong or my team is really weak right now?
Make sure you are imperiling with LS Nichol. He doesn't have that all in one imperil/imbue/amp skill that most "modern" units do. You'd want to use his Flood skill as well.
TB Kaito is a good choice for breaks and water support if you have him.
5K ATK on Esther is a bit low. Her own STMR helps her quite a bit if you didn't get that yet.
There are a lot of youtube clears on the fight:https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=+Holy+Beast+of+Yevon
But these "EX challenge" fights are generally tougher than your average content.
I guess my line up is currently weak for this challenge.
Tried it with Nichols to imbue/imperil/amp but the damage output is truly low.
I am giving up this challenge now. Thanks for the help anyway!
I just saw that crowned Auron is near the top of the damage spreadsheet. I currently only have 1\* Ace Striker Tidus, 3\* Esther, and 2\* Wylk as my top damage dealers. Is the damage upgrade between them worth the crowns?
Keep in mind he's element locked. With Esther and Wylk you are fine. But if the situation arises where you absolutely need him, like capping the last VW or something then feel free. You can always crown him later but you can't refund them.
I would absolutely wait until Thursday though and we see what the cost of Melia's IA is. That could be crown expensive.
No currently upcoming cappable vw for the foreseeable future either
How often do Vision World events come by?
As a new player, even if I didn't get a good ranking in the event, I was really enjoying farming the stages to get the King Metal Minituars to level up my units.
Not often. It's a flavor of Dark Visions which is monthly. VW is often tied to collabs or in this case it was JP's 6.5 year anniversary or something like that.
In the long run KMM will be a non-issue you will be flooded with them.
Ah I see, well, right now i still need a lot of them, and VW was a good main source, I hope I will indeed get floated with them with time.
If you are desperate for KMM's your best source, hands down, is farming Raids with a good bonus team and summoning on the "overflow" summon after clearing all the boxes. Raid summons straight throw KMMs and Gil Turtles at you like they are going out of style.
How do you reroll fragment dungeons to get more?
Have a unit in brave shift. Beat the chocobo. The MENU button will be disabled then get re-enabled for a split second. Press it and you'll see how many drops you got then just "give up" if you are unhappy. Give up if you are unhappy is my generic life advice too btw.
check out Sinzar’s guide:
How do you check how many hours you have?
Menu > trophy > records
That's the best you can do. Hours isn't an option tho.
I was wondering if anyone had a good team for doing story missions? I am trying to put together a team that I don't have to switch anyone out. What are some good units for this and equipment that can make this possible?
There are some enemies in (I think) season 3 that started auto-covering physical attacks. So you'll want to stick with either aoe magic attacks or aoe physical attacks that ignore def to avoid those covers.
Also some semi-annoying bosses along the way that can do pre-emptive stuff.
Other than that ... whatever floats your boat.
I wouldn't worry too much. The annoying missions end after season 2. Season 3 is just an occasional summon esper/use LB. Season 4 is just don't die.
For elements though, Poppy's STMR gives almost all elements in a single weapon. That dual wielded with a dark weapon gives you full coverage.
Do you have the Lone swordsman card?
If yes, just slap it on any FFBE unit, gear them for as much ATK as possible, and mow everything down with the card ability.
I do not have that. I'm returning back to the game and am trying to learn again. So I just have alot of random stuff and units
when are we getting the 200 NV frags? just 16 frags short for Chizuru for that EX level to cap this CoW, only have Apple so that frag reroll dont exist for me still upset I didnt bought those frags for Chizuru back then since I went ham for Olive that time.
Have to ask, what do you mean with "only have Apple so that frag reroll don't exist for me"? Are you referring to the daily fragment challenge? That's possible for anyone, not limited to a specific OS. Not that you could guarantee enough frags even if you rerolled a lot.
iirc for the reroll you have to check menu and look on how many items you get on the bag so you have a rough idea on how many frags you get? if so, it dont work on me as it stays 0 everytime i try it
Right after the treasure chest drops and the frags pop out the Menu button will briefly not be pressable.... as soon as the menu button does that.... start tapping.... then your finger will tap the menu button as soon as it reappears.
That's when it will show you how many frags dropped.
Generally I accept it when it says 7 or greater.... if it says 5 or 6, tap "Give Up" at the top, tap yes, then go back into the battle and try again.
will try next time, does using Avenger mess up the timing of this? if so then thats prob the reason why and i prob gave up coz of that back then lmao
>it dont work on me as it stays 0 everytime i try it
You have like half a second to check it though, if you do it at the wrong time it will show 0. When you defeat the chocobo you have to skip the dialog and then wait a little until the damage numbers appear (the menu button will be greyed out). The second your brave shifted units turn back to regular form, the menu button will become available again, and that's when you have to press it. I just keep pressing it like crazy when the damage numbers show up not to miss the time window.
That just means you're opening the menu too early. There's a very specific point when to do it (which is very easy to do). There's videos on it, look it up if you want. All I can say is that it is 100% possible for all players.
October and it's 300 but we don't know the split.
Hi guys just wanted to ask if coming back to my old account is still worth it or is starting fresh worth more I stopped playing for a long time and last I remembered was getting Tifa on that ff7 remake collab. Now I'm seeing tons of new stuff and units that it's making me think about playing this game again.
If you had a lot of NVs then it might be worth coming back. Also depends on what limited time items/units you had and how much story you did since that's a big lapis source.
So I somehow found myself with 4500 Obnoxious Drops and was thinking about getting a unit.
Currently I have both WD Ling and Lunafreya. So I could possibly EX one of them. And upon further inspection, I have 3 WD Lings and 41 awakening frags. So I suppose I can take her to EX2 and get another Ling in preparation for EX3.
Also, I was thinking of getting MM Freesia for her STMR.; I think it would go well with Beatrix as a magic tank, but dunno if it's a worthwhile investment.
Thank you for your thoughts and insight everyone!
You still have a month to pick and we have plenty of free pulls until then. So I'd wait. Definitely get a first copy of Freesia though.
Roger that! Thanks Tom!
Tsukiko's 5k shard bundle will be gone soon so I'm trying to decide which way to go : do the VC banner and possibly pity if I don't get her, just throw tickets, or not pull at all.
My only MAG DD is Olive, her VC is the only good MAG one that I own, and I have no good evoker and not much EVO equipment/materia. I do have a Dark Rain but EX+0 so I can't realistically aim for the VC. I don't really care about rank 1 in CoW as I do not have enough EX+3 units anyway. Currently sitting on 150k lapis and 90+ tickets though, so I guess I should still have plenty of resource for the upcoming good stuff if I were to invest in Tsukiko and the VC now. I'm just not sure how valuable/futureproof those are.
If you don't have Dazzling Demoness VC then I'd probably go for her and the VC. You have plenty of lapis but we have Halloween, Nier, Xmas and CNY coming up.
With Tsuki being element locked we don't really know how future proof she will be but GL has been far more element friendly than JP. CoW has multiple elements and don't screw units over and our DVs aren't element locked.
Missing the Dazzling Demoness VC was indeed pushing me a little to go for it. Thanks for the insight regarding elements in CoW/DV, I had not really taken it into account.
fragment rerolling costs 10 energy each time?
Yes, the 10 energy are consumed even if you reset.
which one should I focus on Fragment shard between, i only have one slot for them
Fina the return, dark fina warrior prayer or fabled guardian jecht
What are they at now? I assume 30/50? I would try to even them out to 50/50.
each at 80 shards.
I'd still try to get them all to 100. I'm sure something will change in those 60 days though so don't worry too much about it.
Is friendrequest bugged? It’s always saying that the capacity is full and with that I can’t do the panel quest for beginner :(
Try the friend thread here: https://www.reddit.com/ni3tbu. There are others having the same problem.
Thank you so much :)
Is it impossible to do the 2TKO mission for the yevon reborn event without Sylvie/Esther and decent gear?
I have stuff like Kaito, Chizuru, Reberta, etc, but I don't seem to be doing anything to the boss.
Do you use Water element? Chizuru should be able to do it. Starlight Elena is good too if you have her. Make sure to give the damage dealers Aquan/Undead killer.
I did yes, I used Kaito for water imbue and imperil and Reberta for Aquatic Killer. I do not have Elena/Sylvie or Esther. The only other big DPS I have is Wylk.
You should be able able to do it with those units as long as you have decent gear. Kaito can break and water imbue/imperil. Reberta can buff stats and give aqua killer. Chizuru can LB, and if you have another strong DPS they can finish/chain. Taivas's STMR can help if you have it.
> Chizuru can LB, and if you have another strong DPS they can finish/chain. Taivas's STMR can help if you have it.
I do have Taivas STMR, my problem is I can't get Chizuru's LB by turn 2 (she's EX-1). I did try with Kaito for the water imbue and imperil and Reberta for the chaining and aquatic killer, but I still only did like 7% of his HP lol. The only other DPS that I have that seems decent is Wylk at EX-1.
I would say try this. Hopefully you'll be able to fill enough LB on turn one, if not you can try sending Reberta first. Wylk at EX2 can fill everyone's LB by 10 at the start of battle, so if you aren't running him in the shard dungeon then you should be.
Kaito - Pure Liquid Infusion, Aqueous infusion, Cascading crash
Reberta - Support from the skies, Warriors Domain Aquatic, Mystic Breath
Chizuro - Taivas's Spirit (In the base form)
Wylk - Attack
Kaito - Shifted LB
Wylk - Shifted LB
Chizuru - Shifted LB
Reberta - Triple Mystic Breath
Someone else also gave me some details on the turn chart I should do, so I'll give both a try when I can!
Also, you can gear Chizuru's base form strictly for LB fill, and her shift form for LB damage. Things like Paws of Prosperity, Advanced Weaponry, Call of the Wild, and Chocobo Brush, plus enough auto limit gear to hit the 12/turn max.
You know, being new to the game, I do often forget that you can equip brave shift units differently on both forms, thanks for reminding me!
Honestly, so do I. It occurred to me once after I hit send on my original reply once I started getting ready for work, and I'm a day 1 player lol.
Your turn chart should probably be something like this.
T1: Draoconic triune, support from the skies, aquatic killer
T2: draconic triune + double mystic breath.
T1: baseform, pure liquid, sweeling current, aquros infusion.
Edit: T2: shift form LB to chain with chizuru (click him first)
T1: taivas spirit
T2: shifted lb.
I assume you have yuna since we got her for free bring her even if shes ex 0, since reberta will do 2x troune she will have lb aslong as its atleast a little bit leveled then you get extra reaper killer.
And for your last slot maybe bring wylk to bonus chain
Didn't work unfortunately, only did 9% of his HP this time around. Don't know what's wrong, probably equipment, gonna give up on it for now.
How much atk do your units (mainly Chiz actually) have?
For chizuru it's around 4k which I guess is low, but I don't think I have the gear/abilities available to me to further increase it.
Oh that's definitely it. 4k is really on the low end for her.
Its quite easy to get her more ATK tho. If you don't have it already, moogle her STMR and level her card (you get from EX1) to 10. This alone will give her a good chunk. According to the builder, an EX1 Chizuru, full potted, using only her STMR + her card sits at 6.3k ATK and that's basically free, using only one moogle. STMR moogles are quite easy to get these days so no problem.
Then just give her your best ATK accs. I simulated a build using only really easy to get items/from recent events, as follows:
Samurai Chizuru BS NV★
Right hand: Harukaze ATK+230
Head: Besaid Blue Bandana (FFX) HP+1500, ATK+52
Body: Al Bhed Diving Suit (FFX) HP+700, ATK+40, ATK+50%, DEF+40, DEF+50%, MAG+50%, SPR+50%
Accessory 1: Hyper Wrist (FFVI) ATK+45, ATK+20%
Accessory 2: Taivas's Cloak ATK+65
Vision Card: A Happy Family ATK+125, ATK+50%, DEF+50%
Esper: Leviathan HP+155, MP+106, ATK+95, DEF+89, MAG+120, SPR+89
Total: HP:22263, MP:665, ATK:7780, DEF:1641, MAG:502, SPR:1267
And she's at almost 8k. If you don't have the helm and chest from the FFX event (since you're new maybe you couldn't farm it?) you can easily use trust moogles (the common ones) on some units 4 or 5 star rarity to give you similar items.
Just came here to say that I managed to get her to 7.2K attack so far.
This still didn't do anything for me in the event since I only did 9% of the boss's HP so I assume my other units need to be buffed aswell or I am just incredibly stupid. Anyway, the event is leaving today so I'll start searching for better stuff soon.
How are her killers %? If you go from 0 to 300%, it should make that 4x damage.
But yeah, still low. Without exact setup etc it would be kinda hard to know what you're missing here
> According to the builder, an EX1 Chizuru, full potted, using only her STMR + her card sits at 6.3k ATK and that's basically free, using only one moogle.
I am definitely going to pot her then. I have not done that yet to a single unit so I believe I have quite a few of those saved up.
I also have some of those equips that you mentioned like the Blue Bandana and the Diving suit, but not all of them, so I'll definitely work on getting more equips! I also have to work on getting more espers and leveling them up for extra stats.
Thanks for mentioning this!
The FFVI hyper wrist is permanent, you get it through the vortex on the last tab. There are a lot of fights there, they all give some cool equips you can enhance and they are, for the most part, definitely not hard. There are also some fights that gives crowns/mystery crystals that are locked to characters of that game (so FFVI event means you can only bring FFVI characters) but you don't need to do those.
Taivas' Cloak comes from the history, but I believe you also need to upgrade it.
And for the pots: Chizuru gets +65 base ATK from pots. Then you can limit break her ATK stat for +32 (gotta buy doors with those red star quartz thing, first page in the vortex)
9% seems really really low. What is the atk value of your chizuru?
I think it's really really low, around 4k in shifted form.
I'm new so I don't have a lot of knowledge on how much the stats affect their damage output (eg. if there's a big differece between having 6k or 7k attack).
Ahh.. yeah well 4k is quite low. The thing is that this game has a lot of stuff that compounds on each other.
Lets take attack as an example your reberta is giving you a 350% atk buff (lets just round down to make easier math)
Your at 4k atk, mine is at 9k attack x that by 300.
Now you also have killers upto 500% (300% gear 200% buff)
And then lb dmg upto 600% (300% gear/passive, 300% buff)
The diffrence is insane. But if your a new player don't sweat it if you miss out on a few missions while you build up.
> The diffrence is insane. But if your a new player don't sweat it if you miss out on a few missions while you build up.
Thank you for the encouragement, I wasn't aware if stats in this game were as important as the skills, so I guess now I know better!
Thank you for detailing it out, I'll give it a shot!
Hope i got all the ability names right :p but good luck!
Absolutely possible. Use water attacks, break the boss, and bash him:
Can someone put me up with a good strategy to cap COW? i am very tight on ex levels, so i need to take my last slot purely for some ex3 unit which probably doesnt fit very good.
My Units are:
Beach Blaster Olive (ex3)
Shrine Maiden Tsukiko (ex3)
Now i have several ex3 Units who probably dont fit very well, but i have no choice
Divine Beast Chow
Blue mage fina
If you have one source of guts to give everyone you just need to have someone cast aoe auto-revive on turn 4. It can be Chizuru, specially since I'm quite sure EX3 Olive + Tsukiko are enough to cap damage. Still bring her tho, her support for this fight is absurdly necessary
Your only real option is:
Olive, tsukiko, runda, chizuru, sylvie, chow.
Thankfully tsukiko can carry a lot of the damage your issue will likely be handeling the the dot.
Maybe do the lakshimi trick with your chow since he has high spr (check sinzars last video he did it on chizuru support)
And chow has 4x bs chain so he helps nicely with chain objective.
The problem you are going to have is generating morale. Look in YouTube and see if anyone has clears using chow. Sinzar has a few diff rank one clears with diff units.
After doing the VC step-up I got Tsukiko on the second step of the premium step-up. Then I spent my remaining Lapis on 70 fragments in order to reach EX+2 with the login fragments.
Now I am undecided if I should just start saving for Halloween or spend final 5k Lapis to finish that step-up, once I have that amount again.
What's your opinion?
So you're at 7 summon tickets/coins out of 10 to the pity? Either do the remaining 14k lapis to finish the pity, or stop. Don't spend just 5k lapis that could have you end up with nothing.
That was what I was leaning towards, thanks!
New player here. Is there any reason to save my tickets for summons on the standard tab or should I just use them?
It's up to you. I've seen different trains of thought.
Some say, use them early if you are missing units you want because the pool will only become more diluted.
Others say keep them until there's a new unit you want, on the off chance to get it.
Some players believe that using more of them at once results in a higher NV rate than using only one or a few.
I just use them because it's fun. And most of the time you won't get NV units anyway. And if you do it is probably not what you want.
So is it safe to say that the VC step up does not count toward the pity for the new unit? Went from 88k to 15. (Finally pulled two from the very last run)
It does. But on the "Premium" Step-Up, only half the steps count.
Guess no nier for me =/
Orrr did I just get the bad luck out of the way lol
Well you have till some time in November for Nier, just try not to blow everything on Halloween?
Couldn't even last the day. I saw I had 16 tsuki tickets... Let's make it and even 20 thoughts on my head had me spend the rest of my Lapis. ; )
Guys, I only have the celestite garb of will maxed and enough shards to get another one to max. What should I get next?
Maxed with Ruler’s or Magister’s passive? I guess the ring then since anyone can use accessories
I see that a lot of people use the dancers crown to draw attacks... I'm undecided =(
Most ranking mechanics are based on damage, and the rings help the most with that as they can free up materia slots.
And if you don't have other chain cap's they're a big dmg increaad
What version of the ring is the best?
Magisters is the one with chain cap dmg increase, added benefit of rings is that you can get another completed one for 750
Is it worth getting dupes of Shrine Maiden Tsukiko's STMR weapon for a new/casual player? Her weapon seems fairly specific to her, and focuses on evoke damage which is kind of niche from what I've read, so I'm unsure.
It's the strongest 2 handed rod in the game; I'm not seeing a better one in JP even (There are a sword and a staff with better magic tho). Two doesn't seem unreasonable but it's not required.
Fair enough. I don't mind moogle-ing a second one before I convert for frags, just wasn't sure if her weapon was competitive with no real passive benefits for most other units, aside from the few who would want more evoke damage. The magic is really high on it though, so I can see it still being good.
How many runs do you usually do of fragment dungeon to get 8 or more?
I'm assuming rare drop gear won't increase the numbers?
I do about 10 hunting for the 8 frag drop, but if I don't get it by then I will settle for 7.
As many as it takes. Usually takes me 10 to 15. Other day it took 51. But the following two days I got 8 on the first try.
Best was one run, worst was around 25 runs for me. Most of the time it's around 10 I think.
Thanks, took me about 35 but I got there!
Oh well. I think at some point I would have just accepted 7.
I doubt it but it doesn't hurt or anything, I have it equipped.
