I really feel like the energize mechanic would be better if more characters combined their energize moves with a secondary effect. Even something like giving Pia a self attack buff and Elias a party defense buff whenever they sing would do a lot to make them more useful.

Other than the EX rate change, some raid changes that I do like that I noticed:

1) They took out 2* Wyrmprints and weapons, replacing them with bronze whetstones and holy water in the Blazon Summons. There’s also less of them, and they increased the amount of good drops like silver materials. It’s also nice to not need to worry about constantly going back into the upgrade screen to burn all the weapons/Wyrmprints you eventually got through the raid battles and blazon summons.

2) Similarly, the raid boss itself drops bronze whetstone and holy water instead of 2* Wyrmprints and weapons.

3) They added more Elwater to the Emblem Rewards, over 2K more Elwater from what I can tell compared to the last raid.

4) The boss battle not having a stage you need to go through beforehand means it’s much faster to grind out otherworld fragments.

While I feel like more hardcore folk will feel the raids are fairly easy, I believe raids are primarily meant for the newer/intermediary players. It’s why every single raid has you play 5 missions or so of really easy stages and makes you play beginner/standard before Expert/EX. Players either working towards HMS or are currently doing HMS are gonna get more appropriate content when we get the additional quest difficulties past Expert/Master and when the next High Dragon launches in mid-December.

I went ahead and spent the free ticket and ended up getting everything from the banner except Cupid and the spear girl (the banner fooled me too because I got a 5* Dragon and *thought* got literally everything but it ended up being Leviathan for some reason). Cupid was actually the main thing I wanted (str boost passive with an AoE heal active sounds so nice) but I will hold firm on saving the rest cause if Santa Ranzal's around the corner I want to be as ready as possible.

I must say that if you get a bunch of people with Energize effects in a raid it's quite noticeable, and the Light caster lady's spell effects are pretty and seemingly effective enough. I've been able to do respectable clears hosting as Julietta/Lucretica/Vixel/Elias hovering at about 10k Might, but I don't think I'm going to have the patience for the title. Sans getting Juli from the Thanksgiving pull I got everything else just now and don't have the resources to to take them high enough to offset the average snobby whale PuGs. I want to farm FGO as well so my time's limited.

Got title + no deaths with some really good pugs, nice to get that out of the way early. Now I'm just hoping I can grind out all the medals before Smash comes out on Friday lol

This also means it will be more difficult to get 15 copies of dragon arcanum for new players from now on.
While it’s nice, it isn’t absolutely necessary for new players to have fully unbound Dragon Arcanum. For clearing EX, for this raid at least, the biggest thing is just having a Dragon right as the fight starts, anything extra just helps the run go smoother. To better compensate, a new player can equip 4 copies of the normal Dragon Arcanum on everyone for 20%, since the event Wyrmprint no longer gives a damage bonus. Doing this, a new player only needs 8 copies of Dragon Arcanum for 23% dragon vs 24% with 3 fully unbound and an event Wyrmprint for the past raids.

Yes, but it's already difficult to get 4 in a short lapse, nevermind 8 copies. I'm at the 4th chapter in a new alt account and only have two. With this pace it's improbable I'll get 8 copies by the end of the event.
So the question that raises is, where to farm the arcanum card?
...Ok nevermind, I saw that chapter 2 drops it pretty easily.

I also think it’s sorta... not great, to get whetsones? I’d rather have the weapons I can sell (for an extremely tiny amount of money, but still) than exp items I will never use. Ever since someone pointed out to me the sheer amount of whetsones you get from IO I’ve just sold all the weapons.

It feels like weapons take a weirdly low amount of EXP to level compared to anything else?

The weapons don’t help that much until unbinded, so I feel like its about where it should be since you have to level up multplie ones. You don’t have to do that with other things. You don’t have max each dragon before using it in an unbind for instance.

Yeah, was just about to say grinding Chapter 2 is A LOT more energy efficient than doing the raid in the hopes of getting it from Blazon summons. New players will have an over abundance of wings they can use for the raid, while dedicating their energy to farming for Dragon Arcanum if they’re super unlucky. With the change so every level up rewards 12 wings, new players are gonna be able to non-stop grind raids with wings.

Like I said, I feel raids are mostly geared to newer players, and a new player won’t have access to IO for whetstones.

Haven't actually used Maritimus in action, but how tightly can you control his special movement? Can you still swerve around to hit the same target?
I haven't tried swerving but probably not; his attack does not last long enough to go back and hit someone anyway

sometimes, against big targets, it will get stuck against them before rolling past and hit a couple of times instead of hitting once and moving on

maybe the whole point is his bonus to strength and hp but haven't done the math

Wtf they just send a ten-fold summon voucher.

For a small mistake even, though I believe Japan is strict about how the rates displayed must be corrects.

Is Lucretia that much better than Amane? I got Amane and I'm not sure I wanna pull anymore for Lucretia.

They miswrote how much the rate would increase in getting a 5 star for the pity rate as something less than what is was. I'm honestly surprised something that small would prompt a free 10 fold.

Well they goofed up with the wording on the welcome ticket originally (not sure if they changed it) so maybe they are sensitive to errors concerning the gacha.

The welcome ticket says you get a 5 star and didn’t mention what happens if you get a double. Even if you get a double its more valuable and not equal to 3000 eldwater. Some people complained about that and had to get refunded through itunes or android since cygames didnt seem to do anything about that. Maybe this is just them making sure the dont goof up in other areas concerning it.

My ludicrous luck in this game continues. Got nothing on the first 10 ticket and another 10 pull, I already have Julietta and HElly so I decided not to pull any more and stay at 8k wyrmite.

Did a what the heck 10 pull with some event wyrmite and got my 2nd Leviathan and first Nidhogg. Now have a 5* dragon for every element. Hour or so later I got the second tenfold ticket, got 2 Unicorns, Lucretia, Pia, and Vixel.

I have Ezelith, Julietta, Xander, HElly, Lucretia for 5* heroes (and promoted Eleonara). 2 Leviathans, Agni, Cerberus, Zephyr, Jeanne, Nidhogg for dragons. Decent amount of 5* wyrmprints but nothing outrageous. I've spent $3 of Google rewards money and didn't reroll. Don't know what I did to deserve it.

I guess? But it’s only 2 2* weapons = 1 bronze whetsones, and now non-new players get something actually worthless instead of 50 rupees. Which is barely anything, so I’m not exactly bothered by the change given that getting more of other materials are probably more important, but it’s not nothing and adds up.

The weapons don’t help that much until unbinded, so I feel like its about where it should be since you have to level up multplie ones. You don’t have to do that with other things. You don’t have max each dragon before using it in an unbind for instance.
Yeah, that’s fair enough. Just feels a bit weird to look at when you’re building one thing at a time, but it does add up. Guess I should actually do the math on that, and see if I do indeed have enough to instantly make those four other 4* T2 MUB staffs I’ll need or not.. Cause I’m pretty sure I do, but it’d be nice to be certain.

Should I save this new ten pull ticket? I am reading a lot of energize skepticism here.
Yeah, I’m saving it because all I kinda wanted was Vixel (kinda purely due to his VA), I got him, and Cupid’s not worth pushing my luck for. I have Amane, so I don’t need Lucretia.

I guess I’ll just do 2 free 10 pulls next time then. Actually, I’m still building up solo tickets; maybe I’ll do 10 of those and then the 2 free 10s and not use any wyrmite at all.

My current strategy is doing two 10-pulls at the start of an event and then one at the end if my pity-rate hasn't been broken (also daily pulls throughout the event).

But cupid is the featured unit and what I was aiming for :/ Well I will use them to unbind both copies I have
I come to the conclusion that 5* dragons are the most valuable resource on the game, considering how much they are important for really levelling up the team. Even 4*s are really precious for me, considering how better any gacha 4* in general is compared to a welfare dragon.

I didn't save the new tenfold ticket, and I got my first 5* adventurer from it! Welcome, Lucretia! It's finally not a 5* Wyrmprint or Dragon!

Is it possible to reroll on emulator and get that account/save on your android device? Or would I have to reroll on my phone which seems like a lot more of a pain?

Yeah, after you have an account you’re happy with, link it to a Nintendo ID, then login to your phone with that Nintendo ID. You can play the same account on multiple devices once it’s linked.

No problem!

In other news, someone uploaded the home and raid music loops.



This is the first time for an event that I really like just listening to the lobby music. I don’t even mind the wait as a host since it means I can hear the music for longer xD

Woooo just got the Epithet! Took me 4 EX runs but finally got a good PUG and we beat it exactly at 1:30 left on the clock!!!! That was intense!

Now that I got Amane built up, she's incredible! Getting the 5 star wand for the extra skill is a big investment, but I really love playing her character so I may think on it (and maybe 5 starring). Can't believe it took this long for me to finally play a wand character as I never got Lily or Maribelle and it's really fun, like a much better version of the bow class lol.

Here’s Lucretia’s solo at the beginning of the event. I don’t THINK this song plays anywhere else outside Lucretia’s introduction, which is a shame because I really like the choral backup.
