Ifrit grinding is such a draaaggggg. I don't have MLB weapons for the super synergy characters or Quistis so I manage 2 1/2 characters per book (getting the treasure rewards, not max board). I wanted to get a lot done to try for Lenna and Rinoa but with only a couple of days left I'd rather play the games that aren't a chore. Ivalice characters are the husbando/waifu for me so I'm only going to toss some Hail Mary tickets to Lenna and Rinoa. May the RNG gods bless me.
Best of luck! I experimented with making use of Golbez instead of Quistis as to max him out, and it seems that as long as you have a fairly useful attacker, and you use Vanille to dispel the Def buff, then replace her or your more useless character with Quistis, you can clear a run pretty quickly, around 3-4 min, even if Vanille and your weak link are completely useless!

Just try to make sure you follow any Quistis characters currently following you back, so they can stick around for Five turns and really lay on the Damage, and try to get her EX off with 2 uses of Degenerator Whip left, so you can make the most of her buff.

This will get trickier with Shiva, since she splits into two, and it becomes this huge pain in the kupo, but Ifrit is at least pretty easy to damage with his Def buff taken out.

I was hoping for them to tweet out a third update with Cloud's rework too but yeah it's not happening yet.

Stupid Cloud is even in their profile pic but he's just a bench warmer argh :(

I lucked out, and managed to get a copy of Onion Knight’s EX! He’s sure to be a useful character for me sometime, especially when his EX+ shows up!

Now I’m waiting to snag Sephiroth’s in July, and Lenna when she shows up soon! I hope the tickets I’ve scrounged up will get me there, I’m really looking forward to her!

Also, Damn! Y’shtola’s really pulling her weight, and I couldn’t be prouder! I’m hoping I can finally get her weapon passives in order, since they seemed to be of tenuous usefulness back when she released. even without any aura, she provides so much brave to the party, and now she can absolutely decimate enemies with stone!

How are you all feeling about the reworks so far? Both these and previous ones? I appreciate them breathing new life into these characters, and making them super useful, while preserving their talents!

Got 1 OK 15CP, 1 WoL 15CP, 1 WoL 35CP and Ysh EX off of the free pull lol

I needed one OK 15CP and 1 WoL 15CP to MLB both of them and then the WoL 35CP was a powerstone.

Nice work! I’m looking forward to another Y’sh on the table, I’ve been doing Co-ops since the event started and I feel like the only one! She’s so Tactical now, it’s so fun! Stone+ is such a good dump now, and the Brv+ she gets using it provides such good brave, and Medica II can set everyone up with all the brave and max brave buff they can handle! She’s especially useful alongside characters with overflow, or mechanics where they dump and continue attacking. Also, her EX, during a Summon, or any other time for that matter, is a complete tide-turner.

See, THIS is why people should try playing healers in MMO’s. They have so much pressure, that when you get into the groove, it becomes super Viceral and engaging! You can have a ton of fun using Y’shtola in your team, and she’ll be solid until EX+, where she’ll become the goddess of batteries and life.

Onion Knight gets a very good overhaul to his abilities, and it makes him very useful and flexible given Blizzard combo deals lots of off-target Damage, and Multihit has 150% overflow, but as always, you have to be careful about when you switch from Sage to Ninja! Doing it at the wrong time can stymie the party attack aura he gives at full stacks, and leave you having the weaker EX for the task at hand! His longevity is proven with careful timing. He also becomes the king of Ice when EX+ comes around, as he will have the tools necessary to make everyone deal tons of Ice damage on the opponent, as well as having his fast EX+ put a ton of damage out.

I’d take her in the coop but I only had her 15cp 0LB and no 35cp, man they can keep giving me surprises EXs and expect me to MLB them.
Sorry but Lenna first then I’ll see.

Actually, you’re in luck! Y’shtola is one of the most extreme examples of “nearly useless” weapon passives in the game!

Once you have her EX weapon, you are almost completely at full power. The little Def debuff on stone is nice, and the little extra brv battery on medica II can help a little, but overall, her EX is the most important part of her kit.

Once you have that, the stats it provides more then make up for any passives you’d miss from previous weapons, and with the new extensions, she is fully functional in today’s meta!

Y’shtola doesn’t need her weapon passives to be useful, they are not important compared to the EX, and shouldn’t be focused on with Power Stones. If you have them, that’s great, but they aren’t game breaking.

I’m thinking of just maxing Y’shtola now but I’ll look for her returning banner beforehand.
Edit : she only comes back with her level 70 apparently.

Nice to know, thanks!

Edit : used 50 tickets, no 35cp but I maxed both Y’shtola and OK’s 15 CP with 2 WoL 15 dupe so 10 more power stones!

Unfortunately I wasn't able to get Golbez EX, I will try my luck with tickets, but now I really need to farm/save resources to Rinoa.

But Today I'm very happy with 2 Ysh EXes with the free pull.

Now I want to buy her clothes because I even not playing much of FFXIV I actually really love her. She's one of my favorite chars in NT as well.

"Grats on those free EXs! My freebie multi might go down as the worst in this games' history.....10 bronzes and a 15cp for Edge whoooo!

It's ok though, I'll grab Y'sh's with the free EX and I should be set for Lenna, Rinoa, and "hopefully* Seph when he rolls back around.

I had forgotten how much I enjoy OK.. All these multi-hit strings
Back in OG Dissidia, starting one of his super quick brave combos, and turning it into an hp attack mid combo was super fun, so I’m glad that magic is showing up here for you!

I managed to get some boards done, but I really screwed the pooch on this. I had tons of work I had to do the whole two weeks, so I missed out or put off doing everyone’s board for their tickets and gems! I’ll still be able to do some more, if necessary, just at Double the cost... I hope I can do more when Shiva shows up!

Free EX roll got me all of OK weapons...15, 35, and EX...is he good? Should I invest in MLBing his stuff?

I'd rather have gotten Y'sh stuff...ugh.

He recently became super good on JP, so he’s future proof https://altema.jp/dffoo/saikyo-611?utm_source=最強&utm_medium=Gナビ&utm_campaign=Gナビ

While this game have powercreep, most of the old characters get good rebalance so it’s pretty much use your favorites.
Cater though is doomed to stay the worst.

Any JP players who would care to share their thoughts on Freya?

The FFIX fan in me wants to max her as soon as possible (and I'm crossing my fingers that JP will get her EX soon, and we'll get it together with her), but it has been hard to find any impressions of her, outside of the usual IX fan-squealing.

I didn't pull for Freya's weapons so I can't speak to exactly how her mechanics work, but her situation reminded me of Barrett's in the game. Great when she was released, very useful filling the support role in a party (and without an EX weapon to bolster her kit, at that.) That said, she came towards the tail-end of the lv60 era, and fell out of favor the further things progressed into the lv70 awakenings.

Far from useless though, and her banner included both Vivi's and Zidane's EX weapons in JP for the FF9 fans out there. I can see her jumping back up into favor once they do release her EX/EX+.

Finally done farming Golbez’s Eidojas



Now to get good stuff for WoL and Y’shtola, and soon we’ll have to farm Lenna as well @[email protected]
Man, best of luck! I’m having a hard time wanting to do any artifact nonsense, but a couple of Triple Book Hosts get’s you quite a few Eidoja’s, so i’m making my way there too!

Lenna’s coming up in two days, I hope we can all get lucky with her! She’s pretty consistently useful for pretty much forever, and she works well with characters boasting iBrv or who require hitting conditionals to be effective, with Vayne especially getting a whole lot more out of his HP+ Free Turns when each one can do roughly an extra 10000 Damage.

She basically makes every HP attack much more damaging, and can provide a huge windfall for conditionals. And that’s just her Rediculous Brv Regen!

She gives 100% debuff resistance to the party, heals everyone by 20% Hp on her turn, batteries on most of her attacks, and has a special version of an iBrv Down that’s dependent on the amount of hits the randomly targeting ability causing it does, which is a hearty 90% on a single target!

Watch out for her LC, though! I wasn’t around when she had her event, but boy oh boy do I know how tough it was, dealing with a boss that not only hits you with a bunch of debuffs, but explicitly hits you with an attack debuff so strong, anyone afflicted becomes basically useless.

For the event, if you’re lucky on getting 35CP or her EX, great! If not, bring somebody who can clear those debuffs or sling them back, like Yuna or Yuffie.
