I crafted the sword for Gala Ranzal to fight Void Poseidon, but I am mostly being paired with ranged characters. Is that looking like the better decision overall? I have Maribelle too, just didn't have her at 50MC like Ranzal. Not many healers either it seems...

Did I screw this up again? Last time I crafted the axe for Karina, and was surprised to learn it isn't the right resistance for a melee character, and you can't hack it (pun intended) without scorching air resistance. I hope I haven't done it again, and without enough coins to make up for the error this time. At least I didn't use any steel ingots on the weapon yet...
Blasting from range seems like the way to go. Especially since you can use Maribelle, unlike Void Agni there's a wand with skill penetrator. If it wasn't for that you'd see a lot more Lilys in Void Agni.

The melee weapons are a waste of resources. You can just use your best weapons instead if you play melee. The whirlpool only draws you to Void Poseidon which is kind of good actually.

When I farmed Void Poseidon earlier, there were a lot of Lowen players, like between 2 or 3 (myself included) in most rooms I got in.

The first 10 or so matches I did there was maybe 1 or 2 Lowens the whole time, only one of the Lowen-less matches was actually successful but it was close.

I invested in my Lowen, promoted him did his mana circles up to 40, equipped him with a maxed out Garuda and every attempt since has been a success.

Gala Ranzal is a cool unit but I haven't found any content where he really shines yet other than IO for his resistance, shame

Ok yet another Void fight where you need ranged unit. Fuck them, more reasons to hate void fights, stupid Poseidon. I have so many units to level up and 0 Eldwater thus its kinda pointless at this point without knowing next event element to start spend resources to something that could possible be spend to other unit.

Void Agni will be the only one of those harder Void Battles Ive done. Since my best unit is Laranoa and she is very good unit with Sigurd (3 times lbed).

* Void Poseidon is the easiest "Void Boss" yet. You don't need specific units at all, just a reasonable weapon. Even a classic 4* Elemental will do. Bleed is once again immune to the Skill Res mechanic, so expect to see Addis HMC builds everywhere, and Maribelle from those willing to craft the Skill Res Pen weapon. Healers have never been required for non-Auto Void, and that trend continues. The timer is lenient enough that you can run healers and be fine, but get used to the idea of not getting hit too much. Waterfall should not be happening if you are using force strikes, and even if it does, you can go hide in a bubble. Freeze is not a relevant mechanic even in Auto (Sleep is relevant in Zephyr Auto, and Stun is relevant in Agni Auto, so this breaks the trend.)

* Naturally, this means a high percentage of open rooms are Might gating anywhere from 5000+ to 6300+ while refusing to leave the matchmaking pool, using "Up For Anything" instead of other options. For the sake of saving ~20-60 seconds on a clear, they're trying to gate all of the newer players out of new content by sucking in other stronger players into their rooms, instead of using non-matchmaking lobbies to meet their requests. I'm replying in kind by squatting in some of these rooms and by hosting no-requirement open rooms, but I'd rather just see "Up For Anything" get removed from matchmaking instead of playing the character swap game.

* You can get the 60 second clear with non-Void 5* Elementals, but you'll want at least MUB Roc on everyone to do it.

Since Void Poseidon seems to barely inflict freeze I'm just using a Crit focused Lin You build with Stellar Show and Levin's Champion.

I was trying to use it to get more used to Lin, but the pool can be a little annoying when I need to get to a bubble. So instead, I’m using Sylas more for his range.

Not that I need to do too many runs anyway. Thinking it’s probably not worth farming the axe from him vs just getting a normal 5.3 for Lin (or if Dream Summon does happen, Maribelle) for Mercury.

Melody is crazy good for poseidon, skill res doesn't matter when you're just spamming a strength buff so you can just use 5t3 and go to town. I've been helping lots of pubs get their 60s titles with her this morning

Maribelle is making Void Poseidon runs really easy. I've only failed my first blind run and a PUB run that was a comedy of errors (No one with Void Weapons/No one was Force Striking/One Player was Marth).

Any word yet if Void Poseidon Void Seed drops are comparable to Agni/Zephyr? This might up being my go-to Void Seed farming quest.

I just started playing this. Enjoying it so far and I’m not at all a fan of gacha games so that’s promising.

Question about summons given that I’m receiving a free ticket everyday right now. Should I be saving my summon tickets for certain times of the year or certain events?

That's good to hear. Void Poseidon should make my grind for MUB Gold Fafnirs less painful.
Don't sleep on the double drops from Violet Ghost and Frost Hermit either! I fought them a few times each today to burn stamina and work on the endeavours, and got a seed drop, which doubled, of course. If you are looking to farm seeds and can auto battle, that might be the faster way.

I've been autoing Violet Ghost for the endeavors but have yet to have a Void Seed drop. I just seem to have the worst luck when it comes to drops.

My experience with Poseidon: I happily prepared Johanna, promoted to 4*, gave her a 2UB Nightstalker for the 25% freeze res and crafted the Void axe for her. She seemed good enough but didn't have the chance to complete a run because at around 4.5 might if someone dies, the run is pretty much ruined due to lack of dps, and the Lowen player wasn't up to the task. So as I continued searching rooms I noticed the total lack of Lowen players. It seemed I was just lucky that first time.
So I gave up (for now at least) and "prepared" my Lowen, simply bringing him to 40 mc. I did like 6 runs as host, with other 4k players, without much hassle, I even successfully did it with a Fjorm player in the room. Poseidon is definitely the easiest Void Dragon, but I find it a fun diversion anyway.
Also I like healers in general but never played as Lowen, I'm happy to see he's very good.

It sounds like you're just having bad "luck" finding proper rooms. Once the initial excitement dies down and 5k+ Might rooms stop getting spammed in matchmaking, you should have an easier time getting clears, Lowen or otherwise.

One of my first runs consisted of myself and three sub-4k characters in Co-Op. They all died a little after first break, but I went ahead and finished the fight solo. This isn't a terribly hard fight to win with 1-2 characters on decent investment. I've since set up an AI Maribelle with the Void Skill Pen weapon, and plan on forcibly winning Co-Op going forward the same way I do with Marth+Sinoa on Zephyr, or Xander+[one of Cleo/Ricardt/Aeleen] on Agni.

Welcome! Glad you are enjoying the game.

The best things to save your wymrite and summon tickets for are showcases with limited time units that dont show up in the normal summoning pool, such as:
  • Gala Banners. Gala Dragalia happens every 2 months. We just had one at the end of May so the next one will be towards of the end of July. During the Gala the rate of getting 5* summons is increased from 4% to 6% and a new "Gala" character is available and boosted for the duration. All of the Gala units only show up during the Gala Dragalia but aren't boosted outside of their introductory showcase. So far we have had Gala Sarisse, Gala Ranzal and Gala Mym. these are the best times to summon if you just want 5* units in general
  • limited time seasonal banners (so far we have had Halloween, Christmas, and Valentines Day banner, with an expected Summer banner coming up)
  • "Zodiac" limited banners, with a new one at the new year. we have had one so far for the Year of The Boar with Ieyasu who is widely regarded as one of the strongest units and a limited time Dragon Marishiten who is pretty much the best Shadow Dragon. The banner was rerun recently, I'd imagine if it gets rerun it will be in September. Next year is the Year of the Rat.
  • Collab events. We have only had one so far for Fire Emblem Heroes, but this had 3 limited time 5* units on it which is more than usual.

If you’re farming Void fights purely for seeds for Gold Fafnirs (which is to say, if you don’t also need the materials), I think the math worked out that it’s better to literally just go do Fortune with that energy instead?

I’m just getting more every time I have enough extra seeds, though admittedly that might not be often given that I’m not sure it’s worth farming for another void weapon vs just making 5.3s with how my resources are currently. So I’m pretty much just only doing the monthly endeavors currently. I’ve got 1 MUB and 3 0UB at this point; I can prooooobably get another to MUB within a month or so if I get a few drops.

Oof, I'll keep that math in mind. It took a while to get just my 4x 0UB Gold Fafnirs.

For now, I'm just farming Void Leaves until I clear out the monthly Void Shop items and hoping Void Seeds drop along the way.

I sincerely hope we don't get wedding stuff.

The inevitable swimsuits are going to be bad enough as is, but at least that's just the usual "want to see a woman dressed less". Dressing them up in wedding dresses inexplicably is just like... an even weirder kind of gross fan pandering? I know we'll probably get a guy too like we had with V. Orion, but it's not the same.

it's cruel to them too; do you really want to be running IO forever on your wedding day?

I'm with you there. Those FEH units in wedding dresses creep me out so damn much.

Make them wear Gala dresses and tuxedos or something. Wedding stuff is just weird.

june brides are a common thing in gacha games tbh.

Also, I'm going to be real in that Dragalia's nonlimited banners haven't done well at all except since gala started (with the exception of heimwald/curran).

I will say though, even though if the gacha is bride related, i hope we don't have an event that deal with brides. There's too many party/seasonal events in dragalia as is.

I don't think Granblue ever did brides, so it would be weird if Dragalia hopped on that bus. I'd also prefer something more interesting than brides.

I'll admit, a potential bride banner wasn't on my radar as I was focused on summer and the anniversary. I would have been fine without one.

Then I saw Bride Mym.

There is a 0% chance anything around Bride Mym could be better than the wedding in the first episode of Mym's adventurer story, so just read that and think about that art and you'll be set.

Yeah, that was great. Easily my favorite story so far, and it actually had a pretty heart-warming ending. You can tell the writers had a lot of fun with that one.

Yeah, I'm in total agreement with the "bride banner would be icky" crowd. I know the Japanese players break open their wallets for that stuff, but if that was their primary concern, they never would have made all the player-centric gacha changes they have over the last few months.

I'm not convinced this is leading up to a bridal banner (especially with Mym, considering she JUST got released as a gala character), and I'm hoping this is just a way to celebrate June (in Japan), throw out some official art, and give away summon vouchers. In fact, giving more single vouchers away has been a trend recently, ever since they were added to raid daily rewards.

In all honestly, I'm half in doubt the summer banner will be anything close to what people are expecting. I think nintendo is trying to keep the game clean of too much fan pandering, as they might have plans to expand the franchise in the future. One can only hope, anyway. The quality is there, and so is the potential.

Whineing worked, cleared Void Poseidon on second try. Less mistakes and more careful maneuvering with same char (GRanzal). Had a coop team of 4x ~4.9k power, all suvived.

Nintendo/Int Sys leans much harder into seasonal units then Cygames has done with Granblue. (Remember, Fire Emblem Heroes had Hot Spring heroes, basically heroes in bath towels as before the afore mentioned bridal banners for 3 years now). I wouldn't have Nintendo holding that banner free against pandering at all.

That being said, the art for the banner doesn't mean a gacha banner as well.

edit. I also don't think the wyrmprint gacha change was truly altruistic as well, the feedback for wyrmprints in gacha was overly negative in that people refused to spend money after getting trolled by prints.

I'm not sure if there will be a wedding banner or not but if Mercurial Gauntlet is acting like this month second event we will have some kind of filler banner. It could be a Wukong banner or an alt like Beautician Zardin but a new Story Event along a limited banner could also happen....
