Ok! Got my Ifrit to level 20. Should I keep going? Should I go into the Summon Board now?
Congrats, Ifrit will be very powerful as a passive Atk Buff! I would recommend going into the Ifrit Trials to see what the fuss is about, yeah, since you need him to be at 20 to do so, and you got him there!
Oh do tell! I remember that both he and Sephiroth have major iBrv Regen as a part of their kit, so with a good buff to their iBrv, and the use of their Double Triggering Brv+Hp Attacks, they can deal some Serious damage!Setzer completely neuters boss here. Another straightforward fight. Also Ultimecia still a beast despite being a couple of months old.
Now to go and mess around with Sephiroth and see how truly powerful he is :D I CANNOT wait for jecht to get EX+ so he and Sephiroth do crazy shenanigans again
Nope. It's about sephiroth using his EX so jecht gets free turnsOh do tell! I remember that both he and Sephiroth have major iBrv Regen as a part of their kit, so with a good buff to their iBrv, and the use of their Double Triggering Brv+Hp Attacks, they can deal some Serious damage!
In fact, due to this, they get a lot more out of Atk then Max Brv, since they get some solid Overflow, and it helps them max out on their second round of attacks! Definitely worth giving a shot if you already have Jecht when he comes, or you want him because he’s one of the best characters, personality wise.
Seriously, play the original Dissidia games, Jecht steals the show every time he shows up, and especially when you fight as him, I love him so much.
I explained her a bit earlier, but basically she Batteries on all her abilities, and specializes in very long generic buffs. Downside is they can be pushed off easy and don’t work well with characters that already self-buff with generic Atk and Max Brv buffs. But otherwise, she is a solid support, and maxed out, her EX+ can deal a solid bit of damage, make enemies weak to her main element of light, and enable one use of a Very powerful Hp+ called Double Holy.
I have to work on ingots then. I got a couple of EX+ that are still at 0/3.I explained her a bit earlier, but basically she Batteries on all her abilities, and specializes in very long generic buffs.

I’d say she’s a solid support option, especially since she can extend buffs by one turn using her buffing ability, which means certain characters like Vayne (unique two turn buff gives him Free Turns) and Rem (one turn buff gives her a free ability use, extend it and she gets TWO) can be made much more powerful in a more abstract way.
At the end of the day, you already have her, so consider this Infographic to help you build a team with her!
I’d YOLO max her out, she’s rad and she is a solid addition to a lot of powerful parties.
Edit: also, somebody put up a screen shot of how Weapon Skins will work, and it’s very disappointing to me personally.
So, I always knew we were gonna have them tied to Weapon Passives, so anything 3* or below is already unlocked, and anything 4* and above is unlocked by fully maxing that weapon and gaining it’s passive.
...unfortunately, this only counts for weapons Who’s Passives are Directly Usable by the Character.,
so, what this means is, you can’t equip Sephiroth’s 15cp to all the Greatsword users, or give Setzer the Death Tarot EX from Ace, or let the sword users use cool Rapiers from Alisaie.
It’s just whichever weapon that character is directly linked to that is more your style.
Which makes this whole thing, while very appreciated, practically worthless to me. I would have settled with just 15cp Skins becoming universal if they get mastered, hell, even 4* skins. This is literally for those who wanna use the buster sword on cloud or who doesn’t like the look of the EX weapons.
I hope this is just an interim step and they will figure out a way to allow for cross-character Weapon Skins eventually if demand kicks in, because clearly however they needed to program it came with some massive concessions, and it’ll probably be very difficult to get it done without sufficient prodding.
Regardless, it’s super rad we got it in the first place, and I really appreciate the team’s hard work in committing to fan input. It’s not exactly what I’d hoped for, but it is amazing and appreciated nonetheless!
Eiko as a support is just slightly above average. What makes her great is pairing her with units that need their buffs extended like Vayne or Eight. That is where Eiko really shines.
You're good. I'd wait.I like this phase of Chaos better than when I came back to the game a couple months ago after a half-year "break" (I would log in most days just to collect daily login stuff, but didn't necessarily even do 5 quests for the rewards). It's nice to have gone from needing gem revives for clears to being able to complete them with relative ease.
For the Core Chaos, I used Emperor, Ultimecia, and Rosa, all purple, with a friend Emperor and Ramuh. I had to reset a couple times with one-shots in the first few turns, but ended up completing in 56 turns with 999,999 points. Was a bit worried about making the HP requirement, but Rosa kept the team under the 20k damage taken requirement. Focused on the big orb, swapped Ultimecia for Emperor and summoned pretty early, probably around turn 16, after Ulti had done two apocalypses.
My free draws were disappointing power stones, but I was able to get both Eiko and Sephiroth's EX in about 130 tickets.
I'm not sure what weapons I will realize next. I have 5 books, so I'm itching to do a couple, but don't have any immediate need, and I feel I have pretty good coverage. Any suggestions other than "just be patient and wait until you need someone for upcoming dimension's end fights"?

Don't sell them - they are someone's cp15 weapon and you'll want to MLB them to get the passives (and then they will be safe to sell).
Thanks! So my Squall finally is at lv 70 CL and he can basically solo most lv 70 quests easily. I can't quite clear WoI lv 80 quests yet tho, so I'm back to clearing all the story chapters I'm missing. Lots of content (and gems!) to go.Don't sell them - they are someone's cp15 weapon and you'll want to MLB them to get the passives (and then they will be safe to sell).
Most cp15 weapons don't have a portrait and can be equipped by other characters. This used to be more useful when we didn't automatically get a weapon with each new character's introduction.
Don’t forget to check the Raid rewards tab for goodies! There is a section in the Missions tab that switches it to the Raid tab, and when a raid is going on, you can get rewards for contributing yourself, but also rewards from everyone’s combined contributions. That means free crystals and stuff for you!
Yeah thanks, I've picked up a few. Which reminds me I gotta contribute later.Don’t forget to check the Raid rewards tab for goodies!

I don’t have the data on the Raid right now, but if it’s like the others, you get a bunch of goodies for the first 2 million hp damage contributed, and the last 2 million is all Armor Tokens.
Yeah. I'll take note on that. Just like Razzorin is saying. She seems to shine on a specific team. Can't wait to try it when Eight arrives.Eiko as a support is just slightly above average. What makes her great is pairing her with units that need their buffs extended like Vayne or Eight. That is where Eiko really shines.
So if you bring her as just a pure support, she is ok.
If you bring her to extend devastating buffs like Vayne or Eight then she is worth it for that alone
Krile really is the support of choice in fights where she can buff elemental weakness damage. She’s good otherwise, especially with her cool battery EX+, but HOT DAMN does she break the cap for enchanted imperilers! Or even just characters dealing the enemy’s elemental weakness!
I don't have weapons for those. I'll have to pray my ticket luck will extend to those characters.Krile really is the support of choice in fights where she can buff elemental weakness damage.

I can’t wait to get Edge to try this out with, I swear. Heck, I can’t wait until Golbez finally get’s his due!
How much is "to spare"? I have 8 and feel like I'm running out and had to stop myself from maxing a few units I really wanted to max.By the way, I have plenty of Ingots to spare right now, so does anyone reccomend putting two towards maxing Vanille’s EX+ right now? Already got her at 1/3+.
I’m gonna need her Sphere for Vayne later anyways, and her massive Def down debuff mixed with Emperor’s 5% Def down Traps sounds like a massive chain-reaction waiting to happen! Plus, doing so would get me access to her relatively powerful EX+ every other turn, keeping her damage smooth.
If I hold on, though, I’ll be perfectly safe to spend on characters like Eight and King if I get lucky in their banner, but at the same time, after spending two Ingots I won’t be hurting for Aranea and Zack come time for them. Maybe Golbez a little.
I have Vanille at 3/3, and have no regrets. Since her sphere is so useful for Vayne, I say go ahead and 3/3 her now, and take advantage of all the goodness of her EX+ long before Vayne's EX+ shows up.
Rng goes both ways. Early chaos I pulled a bunch of ex weapons with tickets. Now it's been about 500 tickets since my last ex and a lot of times I go 30-40 tickets without a gold. It's pretty painful.well wow I pulled Yuffie's EX in 10 tickets and then Eiko's ex in 15 tickets. I was going for a 35 cp dupe for Eiko to mlb it and my yuffie's kit is super incomplete. Now I can fix that maybe. Remember when Josh said gems are better for ex.... well i'm starting to really disagree hah. I think most of my ex are from tickets but to be fair I rarely ever use gems unless I have a reason to. With an excess of tickets it makes saving gems much easier. I see this being worse in the burst era, however!
Anyway, I'll probably realize both but not past 0 unless needed.
On Emperor's Chaos I got all missions done and 780k score without even using Emperor. Y'shtola/Rosa/Ultimecia all 3/3 just destroyed that fight. (I always do these chaos pretty late in the event because that's when I have time.) But yes... probably my best Chaos run yet! Nobody died ever thanks to Rosa's healing and incredible usefulness. She's seriously a monster of a character. Couple this with Y'shtola's stone delaying, ex giving everyone max brv and healing + amazing hp + attack made this super easy. Ultimecia is super beast too.... my artifacts are crap for her and I was still destroying these bosses brv with her. I ended up using a Setzer friend for the freeze and ex buffs which are insanely useful. Just for fun I also cleared it with Yuna/Rosa/Ultimecia but my score was a lot worse. I wish Yuna's brv shaving was better. Even with perfect artifacts sometimes she fails to break boss. Please give Yuna a burst weapon! I know some characters that are not main in this game that can really use them even max 3/3 ex + for the future.
Congrats! Since Squall is a AoE Dps that has a powerful single-target EX+, you now have a Single Target Dps with a Powerful AoE EX+!
Same for me with Eight, Jack, and Trey.Has anyone seen a character or random video of someone you didn't know about / not interested in and was impressed and said I WANT IT?
For me it was Garland, Eight, Jecht, Jack, Trey, and maybe a couple of others I can't remember right now lol
I wasn't even looking for those units I listed above. I just happened to come across them somehow while browsing and saw what they did and saw the potential of what I could do with them.
yeah I ran out of Gil trying for my artifacts. I’m still trying to perfect Rosa and others! xD
man I still haven't gotten one CS50** lmao
