Also done with this, final battle done in on go with this team, no Bartz EX so WoL it was!



I really liked it, I was a bit scared about perfecting all 6 nodes but the battles were slightly easier than the 3rd floor, to make up for it I guess.
They’ll probably add 3/6 floors per month until the real Abyss drop.
Just realized I forgot to equip WoL with summon board passives and artifacts, haha.

A poorly designed event. Why add all these requirements (weapon and crystal types) when you can clear the trash rounds with rinoas/squalls/golbez? Just leave the only interesting part, boss fights...

If you want to keep the trash mobs add a synergy system, for example:

floor 1: enemies are weak to yellow-crystal characters and immune to the rest.
floor 2: enemies are weak to "gun weapon type" characters and immune to the rest.
floor 3: enemies are weak to VIII characters and immune to the rest, and so on.

I threw all 65 of my tickets on the banner on a whim, and made out pretty well! Got Layle’s EX, and I have Yuri maxed out and ready for his rework like a year down the line! Plus, even though I don’t have Squall’s EX, he’s still pulling his weight very well, so I like that!

Alright.... Serah EX was technically my very first pity but not really. I got the EX on the last pull so 75k gems down. I expected it at this point with all the luck. I'm not even mad in the slightest. I haven't even scratched the surface of the ifrit board gems yet, or shiva tbh.... I still have 3 LC undone for normal and hard mode and I also have the story chapter hard to do and Abyss. I got it on my very last pull and I pitied a 2nd copy. So I have a 2nd ex for EX+ Era... yay?

Anyway, the feeling was not looking great. I updated my in game message for all to see lol. From the day the banner started.... I have used 300 TIckets and did not get it. This marks my worst luck with tickets ever. Should I have grinded more? Maybe... but I was sick of it at this point and I was not about to waste 1000 tickets going for noting. I even got a 5 gold streak at one point but it was all crap. You don't want to know how many Serah 15 cp and 35 cp I sold... and those damn Thancred daggers... I have a whopping 61 + power stones and this INCLUDES weapons I haven't sold yet and some new mlb weapons. I'm stocked for life on those. Anyway, I just wanted to say that I'm glad the pity pull happened NOW but I don't want to see Serah's face on a banner ever again. Everytime I look at her now i'm triggered but that's because THE DAMN WOMAN hates me... clearly. I spent tons of resources but thankfully this game has tons more to get back up to my near 200k gems stash. I may be 75k down but I feel like i'm ready to grind now. Shiva summon board will become so much easier. I'm gonna try to knock out the limited missions with the remaining hours and use super synergy to my advantage. Not all of it of course but I'll do a hefty bunch. It will be boring... but that sweet sweet music though! .... *Shiva uses Resist Veil* ......

Now to get grinding seriously this week. Will use tickets per usual but i'm dreading the possibility of another pity soon. I may skip Rydia and just keep saved for Ashe since I like her better though unless I get lucky with tickets. Fran's 35 cp... i'll probably buy unless I pull it by the banner. Of course I am aiming at being back up there for Yuna EX incase Ashe severely drains me like Serah. Anyway, that's my SOB story. I hope you guys have been enjoying abyss while I was struggling endlessly with this damn Etro woman. <_< Maybe getting Lightning's EX in 3 tickets has played some part in Serah hating me.

I’m so sorry to hear that! It really does suck when the luck works against you and you have to spend all your resources for something you want, believe me, I was in exactly the same situation with Vaan’s EX way back when. He was my big carry when Started the game years ago, so I felt I needed to get his EX really badly, and it took a full pity’s worth of gems to get.

I sincerely hope Serah is of great use to you! She’s pretty great with batterying the team, especially since she has so many ability uses, even not counting the passives that give her more. I reccomend getting at least one or two of her Moonlight Charge passives, but if you get lucky with Artifacts, then more power to you!

Sorry about that Hikari. I think all of us have had those moments of bad luck (I know a lot of us had that with Lenna) and it sucks whenever it happens. But, congrats on finally getting it! The Shiva grind has been annoying but from what I know the next one, Ramuh, isn't as bad.

I finally got decent artifacts on Serah, two debuff boosts and one Moonlight. I'll try my luck and see if I can get at least one perfect artifact for her, but otherwise I'm happy for the most part (even got an ATK +108 on one of them).

Guys, one question, who is after Rydia Lost Chapter? It's Alisae? I love Alisae, she's my favorite character of XIV with Y'shtola. I got Zack ex and Vayne (Thanks RNG Gods because I didn't get Rinoa and Golbez and everything as hard as hell without the metas). I need to save to her but I don't know how much time I have!!!! =O

She’s coming REAL SOON!!! And I was super PO’d that I couldn’t get her a long time ago when her event happened, so you bet your bottom dollar I’m gonna try to get her now!

Plus, she gets REALLY REALLY GOOD, secretly, if you know how to use her! She’s similar to Vayne in that she gets a ton of free turns, and also has her main mechanic, a selfbuff called Dual Cast, that can be extended by buff extending effects like Eiko’s HP Regen. That’s a secretly great way to make her very powerful!

Only problem is that her elements are all over the place, and her damage isn’t the greatest, but most people slept on her in Cosmos, so i’d wait until somebody can give some more useful experience.

All i know is, I want her super bad, so I’ll save up tickets and gems for her and Payne. Here’s hoping they can come easily!

She's actually AMAZING.... so I feel it was worth it. Finished the Shiva Cosmos finally. I also grinded quite a few people today and finished all the super synergy tickets and gems. Now I can take this a little slower. Still have 150 potions or so. I'm good I think.

Yup, and I'm surprised it happened to me so late. This game has been my best gacha luck by far and it feels like a really late outcome if anything lol. And yup the Shiva grind is absolutely awful, imo just cause she takes forever with her animations. 3 hit brv attack... resist veil, diamond dust takes an age as well and is real annoying to deal with... not to mention she clones herself.

.....Wait a min... Allisae too? AGH.... I must praise the ticket RNG gods.

they also announced the maintenance schedule :D

speaking of Shiva. grinding her is a chore and her animations are long. I still have 15 characters left when the banner ended. I'll probably take my time for the rest.

I did about 10/12 characters that I currently and will use in short term (like Rosa/Y'shtola) but I'll wait until we get the update where summon board points are shared between all characters, I'm already grinding enough for Serah artifact right now (and still no 2nd perfect >.>)

yeah. i heard about that update. I'm just grinding up to 1800 summon points for the tokens, gems and tickets.

I think I only mastered 5 characters in the Shiva board.

Was able to beat Vayne's cosmos without Vayne. Used Y'shtola/Serah/Rinoa with a Vayne friend and cleared it after a few tries. I see why Vayne is basically required for the score though. Dps is so slow in this fight and the horse's hp attack hits like a damn truck even at 0 brv from Serah's debuffs the regen on this thing is OP. The only thing I didn't meet was the score. I'll try to see if I can grab Vayne's 35 cp at least since you guys said it was easy even without his ex.

Also, I finally decided I am going to max Lenna. I just need to level her so hopefully i'll stop being lazy tomorrow. Rydia's EX is whatever right now unless I get lucky with tickets.

Got Rydia's EX in about 7-10 throwaway tickets lol might token her 35. Gonna read up on if she's worth the resources.
Ahhh, don’t say that! I really like Rydia’s kit, and I already spent 10 throwaway tickets!

Seriously though, she seems like a really solid, if not completely future proof, support for characters with multi-hit attacks like Sephiroth, Vayne and Zack, mainly because exploiting elemental weaknesses is so broken, and she comes with hearty Atk/Brv buffs and solid damage dealing potential!

I can’t afford to spend on the banner, but I hope she rocks for some of you!
