When they only fix bugs that benefit players, that's what happens

If only I had 1 or 2 Fryevias ...

My alt has 2, my main has her moogle patiently wanting for her to drop. That moogle is probably keeping me from getting her. My alt started after her event, so no moogle to block her.

Very nice! I feel this IW is a little more generous than the last one. Although I haven’t gotten any of the Specials yet.

I have felt the opposite, so many garbage stats. If I'm doing an ATK weapon, I get MAG, if I'm doing a MAG weapon, I get ATK.

These bundles are making the straight lapis purchase look as a good deal...

Well played gumi!

These just make it look like only a fool would put money into this game. Nothing can make straight lapis purchases look like a good deal.

I dunno, the fountain is a good deal. That is, technically, a straight (if time-released) lapis purchase.

see more

The fountain is a time limited bundle, the straight lapis purchases are the always available and insanely overpriced items like the vault of lapis

Don't they rotate out though? Next time will be staves, axes, spears, and hammers, then they cycle each month?

see more

They do, this cycle likely has the most weapons that are worthy of upgrades of any cycle we will get

Does IW only include weapons? No shields/armor?

As far as I know it's only weapons

I'm sad the FFT one was so bad because I couldn't get myself to do it. I'll never have that fire katana.

I farmed hoemaru, no longer miss the old fire katana

I fed my dupe kydia by accident whilst in a half-asleep farming run then I thought to clear some of the trust moogles that i got. that pretty much woke me up. I tried customer service and they won't budge. Didn't push it anymore.

auto-lock should never be turned off for 5 star units, not even for raid units, it's easier to unlock manually than risk the alternative

Sadly saw it on a friend olive, didn't even know what it was until I went searching

have seen it on android and ios now, came here to post it, but it was already posted

Can anyone check if there was a change in Olive's frames for regular attack? I have not tested this enough, but i believe that it is shorter now. Not sure about the other skills, can't say i have seen some changes there.

I thought this too, but wasn't sure

i have 7k lapis now can i reach about 15k lapis for hyoh in future ?

see more

There is a new story coming, and there is lapis in the extra story event stages, you should be able to reach 11k for the step up long before hyou comes.

The game is up for those lucky enough to have their accounts set to get in on the first wave (which has nothing to do with Android/Amazon/iOS or your physical location). The rest should be able to get in shortly.

EDIT: 10 UoC pieces in login rewards!

Not in the way of older accounts getting in earlier, my alt gets in first, my main in the second? wave, main is older than alt.

It will become better if you enhance it, there's no downside.

Linking it with another service should give you the same fear. Google could also block you, login with a dedicated SQ/gumi account could also be dangerous, as that account can also be banned.

Better to not link at all, keep daily backups of your apps with multiple failsafe. Then it's mostly in your control.

Neither of those services are known for randomly blocking users for no real reason, you are comparing the danger of land mines in a mine field (Facebook) to an apple falling on your head on a city street with no apple trees.

Lila and Helmless Kain were also confirmed to be chain partners, so their confirmation could mean that its 25 pieces instead of 10, and only 1 per KM event, and the rest are locked behind cash bundles. Hopefully that's not even close to what actually happens though

2 points · 1 day ago

I'm thinking too that they are going to lock the UoC behind some sort of cash bundle. Which will ruin the game for many players, knowing how stupidly expensive Gumi value even a 5* EX ticket.

The amount of cash they would want so people could CHOOSE their own 5* unit would be ridiculous going on their track record.

I hope that I am way off track and Gumi do sort out a proper free UoC option.

see more
2 points · 1 day ago

The life of the game depends on them doing a good UoC solution, at least as good as what JP has even if it is a different implementation style. If they fail, the game will fail, sending all their potential profits to other games. Hopefully they understand this.

Just returned to the game and had a ton of lapis saved up, so I was able to get both Squall and Rinoa. Is it worth trying to get a duplicate for these units? I have no 7* units and only a small number of 6* units.

Thanks!

see more

I got both on my alt, and did a lap of the step-up for 25k lapis, got both to 7 star on the last step. Only time will tell if that was really worth it

Load more comments

Yeah I wanted a few zell’s for mog king farming, pulled a Squall in 4 rare tickets. Now, I love Final Fantasy 8, but I realistically knew I didn’t have the resources to chase a 7 star Squall, unless I got him in 4 rare tickets..... threw my other 30 tickets at the banner, then all the mog king tickets. Had to do a full bloody lap of his step up banner to actually get the second damn Squall. (My other rainbow units from the banner were Balthier number 1, Prompto number 3 and Mediena number 3, so not the best set).

see more

It took a squall and a rinoa on a daily and a ticket to get me to go after the 7 stars on my alt. 4 steps, got a 4th TT and nothing else. Scrounged up another 5k lapis for the final step, got lucky and have both at 7 star, and no hoard for hyou, but I really wasn't hoarding for him anyway.

Any dream I might have conceived of “hoard for Hyou” went up in flames after I burnt 250 tickets and 25k lapis on CG Nichol and another 100+ tickets and 10k lapis on Awakened Rain (I have no good buffers and no 5 star base magic tank) and didn’t get either of them......

see more

I have neither of them on either of my accounts, though I didn't chase either one hard.

CG Eve would just be regular eve already awakened to 5*, like the troll rainbow days

That triggers a CG animation of him kidnapping 9s from a gold crystal, the animation lasts 5 minutes and can't be skipped.

I would have to give the opposite advice. Keep doing dailies

You piss away 7,500 lapis every month on dailies alone . . . . that's not good advice when 75% of the units will be blue who may be useless.

see more

By that logic, stop summoning entirely, 80% of your units will be blue.

4 points · 3 days ago

Limited time units can obviously only be pulled during their banner. So they would have to basically give them up entirely if they don't save resources. And considering this thread is about getting 7*/STMR for limited time units, I don't think your advice is sound here.

see more
4 points · 3 days ago

You can save resources and still do dailies and use tickets. My alt just did a full step up on the squall and rinoa banner after getting one of each on a daily and a ticket. Got both to 7 star and picked up TT #4 in the process. Now rebuilding resources, but that account doesn't miss a day of dailies.

If you don't get the first limited rainbow, you don't chase for it as F2P, you can't have everything and you have to pick your spots. If you go all in on a limited banner and fail, you now have nothing and are much more likely to just quit out of frustration.

Thank you for your directions on what TMRs to look after, just checked and thankfully I found I have Elbis and Guromu, so I will direct any Trust Moogles on them for now.

see more

You should never feed a trust moogle to a unit until you are ready to get them to 100%, just save the moogles until you are ready for them. You never know what else you might get before you reach 100% that could change your plans.

A question... How many days does Crystallis take to complete normally, without rushing at it with energy Refills? I am aiming at the 50% Trust Moogle reward this September for completing the main story... but without missing other events such as Vortex's story events.

A month ago, I was at the very beginning of the story, in the world of Lanzelt. Now, finally I landed on Crystallis. However it seems there are lot of content still ahead. I wonder, how long can this world of Crystallis take to complete? The past week, I ignored completely the vortex event "Domain for Two" just so I can dedicate my limited energy resources to complete the worlds of Georl and Gungan, which I did, and now just Crystallis is left.

Make sure you do the story event next week, the enhancement materials and lapis are very useful, you don't want to miss them.

I like this idea. This is the main reason I have made my 7* lightning yet. I didn't know what to do with the extra TMRs, I'm too anal to not farm them, and too paranoid to sell them. TMR farming two to 50% is much better than farming one to 100%

I have three lightnings though, couldn't I do three at 33.3%ish and fuse them into the 7* and still get the TMR?

see more

You could as long as you don't mind giving up the option of making a second 7 star lightning if you get a 4th. You would farm them up to 33.3%, make one into a crystal (and get the container), then make the 7 star, then fuse the container and Lightning #3 into the 7 star. You should get the 5% fusion bonus from Lightning #3 (meaning you only need 31.6% each), but I can't confirm as I have never fused a unit into a 7 star. You will not get a 5% bonus from the container.

I'm not too worried about a 2nd 7* lightning. She seems nice now especially since I just found out she chains with Tidus, but she drops off compared to other 7*. I think I'd rather have that STMR sword. But I mostly certainly do not need 4 aurora scarf.

F, event accessories are better then that scarf lol

see more

I would say that the mythril gloves you can buy on the first continent are better than the aurora scarf on anyone but 7 star lightning.

Got my first OK this morning

even the 30k is worth it? and yes the 80k is a little too steep

see more

I usually get it and I macro farm (without refreshes). Depending on your bonus units, it may or may not be the most efficient use of NRG, but it's great for use on rainbows where it would cost 1000 nrg to get that much progress (though you would get 10% on 4 other units at the same time, so the actual efficiency calculation would be for 200 nrg). the value of faster TMRs on rainbows may outweigh some efficiency loss for you, it does for me, and bonus encounters may erase that efficiency loss anyway.

Pulled a Nalu with my first Rare Summon Ticket on her banner, and got my second Veritas of Light from a basic EX Ticket this morning. Would've liked Lunera/Loren/Kunshira more, but she's a good Light nuker, once I've got her properly equipped.

see more

I did the same with Nalu, got my first OK on the 5% daily today. Now I'm not sure if I should try for another Nalu or save my 35k lapis. I doubt I get as lucky as I did with Reagan and get a second one on a daily later in the week

TMR farming (no lapis refreshing)

We are lite this week on account of the higher purchasing costs from the FFVIII items, and the story event follow up. The good news is we're done with KM shopping, the bad is we're still pounding out the story event. Should be done with it by the close of business today though to return us to our regularly scheduled rat extermination.

  • (7* TMR) Balthier #3: 67.9% -> 69.9%
  • (Mage piece) Pure Summoner Rydia: 58.0% -> 65.2%
  • (7* TMR) Basch #2: 4.1% -> 4.8%
  • (7* TMR Arena piece) Orlandeau #2: 0.0% -> 1.1%

Don't forget you can fuse moogle containers into units, so orlandeau #1 and 2, and lightning #1 and 2 can be farmed to 50% each, then use the container you get from making the prism to make a single TMR
