So show of hands: Who here is pulling for the Halloween units and who is skipping?

I'm tempted to UoC Galuf x2, but I have enhanced Sieghard.
Major skip on the Halloween units for me. I hate their sprites and I really don't need any more damage dealers.

I did UoC Galuf though, even if I'm planning on pulling for CG WoL. I don't have enough crysts to awaken Sieg and I had already gotten one Galuf from a random ticket. Still have 20 UoC so it didn't seem like a waste.

Oh look, my 31th 5* EX ticket. Might use them when Christmas units drop if they’re appealing unlike this Halloween ones.

Got my 2nd Kimono Ayaka on today's G5.
She seems to fall back really hard in terms of damage, so not that interesting sadly.

My 5* got me my fourth Dark Fina so I guess that’s a new robe I have for my mages. Or not. I might not chase it.

These slots haven’t gotten me anything worthwhile.

I got my fifth Roy. What do you folks usually do with copies beyond those necessary for an STMR? Just hold on to them until you get three more? I'm tempted just to sell him.

Karten is super good, y'all. Don't sleep on wolf boy if you have him.

They mostly just rot, I guess. If you don't need or want a second STMR, you could sell him, or trust grind him and turn him into trust coins.

5* got me... my 2nd Hyoh. Guess his enhancements might bring him a little closer in line, but I would guess he's still overshadowed by my current DPS spread (Aloha Lass, Randi, Regina) except maybe Randi.

Slots have been fun; they're accomplishing their goal of making the game feel even more like gambling. I've gotten one 4* ticket and a few 5+1's; no 5* EX though, and only one rainbow from EX summons, which was my first or second PS Rydia (don't remember; don't care much).

Slots gave me a 5* ex ticket on the guaranteed drop spin. That and today's login reward gave me my 7th Barb and my 3rd Kaito.

Roy #4 and Reberta #5

I'm kind of fine with both, because at least the Roy gives his STMR, but I can always find a use for another Reberta.

(Also 2 Lulu but who cares)


Still legendary to this day.

And Terra's banner is skipped again for the Kefka/Shadow raid banner, roflmao.

That, with S3 Rain being the following week, all-but-guarantees her to set as the Black Friday main attraction. Get ready for shenanigans. With her arriving that late, there's an increasing chance that she will be converted to be a Summon Fest unit, as she may arrive after Gumi's November livestram that will likely announce the arrival of Summon Fest on Global.

Good thing they set up raid summons to be 500x.

I wonder what they have against my Terra :( this is so disappointing for me. Ah well I’m excited about Season 3 at least ...

Is Terra that good? Sorry for the question as I don’t really keep up with the JP side of things.

Used an EX ticket and got my 2nd DKC. Yay? 🙃

Yeah, nothing by anyone over the lifespan of this game will top that astronomical chain of pulls.


Though, I came somewhat distantly close today doing a very stupid thing. I pulled on on the old Halloween banner step-up. Boosted rainbow rates and no off-banner rainbows? Sure, why not? Always wanted a Lilith. Of course, there's that small issue of the fine print stating that it was a quintuple rainbow banner to offset the boosted rates and no-banner rainbows.... making chasing a specific unit not any better than normal.

Step 1 - Nothing.
Step 2 - Nothing.
Step 3 - GLS (3)

So... what happened to those boosted rates?

Final Step:



Jaw = floor.

Couple of normally trash EX tickets from the slot machine yielded DRain (3).

Of course, in typical Gumi fashion, a player has to do the full step up and an additional multipull on the normal banner (literally the worst banner ever, as a quintuple rainbow WITH off-banner rainbows). That yielded one rainbow, Golbez (2). Enhancements/Latents when, Kouriozan ?

That left me with a dilemma on what to do with the Halloween UoC, until a redditor had a similar problem and was pointed out that DRain's prism was still in the trust shop. Snapped that up for DRain (4) and spent the UoC on GLS (4).

A perfect outcome to another horrible "good" idea. There goes my luck for the rest of the year.

Terra was the start of a big power leap for magic casters. She's almost 2 months overdue at this point. She might be getting delayed because on how much of a power jump she is. On the other hand, the game's current app icon is Dark Fina, whom on JP almost immediately showed up behind Terra in a CG form and obliterated her as the game's first Summon Fest unit. Hard to say how the two of them will be handled on Global.

When DKC get his latent abilities way down the road, he goes from zero to antihero. Alim gave him a new lease on life.

Damn nice one!
For Golbez’s enhancement, I’ll have to trust Gumi since Alim forgot to do it for several months and if they wait another FF IV event for it, welp. I heard his latent ability was lackluster.

Edit : Golbez’s latent :

[Requirement: Clear ゼロムス]
Increase MP (30%)
Increase equipment MAG (50%) when single wielding any weapon
Increase equipment MAG (50%) when dual wielding

[Requirement: Clear ゼロムス]
[3 turns cooldown, available on turn 3]

Dark magic damage (27x) to all enemies (chaos wave chain)
Increase modifier (3x) for 3 turns to caster (can't be dispelled): アビサルサイズ, アビスクエーサー, カイナッツォの力, スカルミリョーネの力, バルバリシアの力, ルビカンテの力, 呪縛の大冷気, 漆黒の牙, 黒い牙
Enable skill for 2 turns to caster: 魔人の四連撃

So once again, quad cast is single turn.

It looks like they fixed the log in error. I have the game on my tablet at home so it will be this evening before I can verify.

I downloaded the game on to my phone and got the same error but I was able to get to the tutorial at least.

Does anyone know if I contact Customer service can they restore my log in streak?

Trial feel easier than the farming boss, but I have trouble finding someone who can do dark LB damage to him for the weapon lmao.
4th try here we go, with Tsukiko and Golbez's CD that reduce Light resist.
Edit : finally done it.

I ended up doing the trial with my regular ghost elemental battle team. Got him to 8% on turn 1, Regina's reraise CD brought her back up for her LB the next turn.
I didn't care about the claws, but I got them anyway. Will not go for the extra 10 lapis to avoid KOs.

Hopefully the 3-part raid boss's lesser components are low HP. Would suck to have to build an AOE team specifically for one raid. (I do enjoy that the "raid" boss is "Air Raid"... and sadly appreciated the Shadow-themed bundle text)

Once again, new maintenance means new red quartz. Used all my NRG so I set this as a reminder for later.
Also I forgot to do the daily EP quest in a month, it’s really an awful system.

Well, I hope other people had the same experience I did - OTKO ELT with Aloha Lasswell solo (water imbue, AOE attack, regular attack). I'm not even going to try farming this on anything except repeat.

About 200 NRG away from the 5* guaranteed EX on the ghost. Slots still yielding nothing of real value (got some lapis). Still in maintenance mode.

I threw 1 regular ticket at the Jp FFVII AC banner this morning by curiosity and got Tifa, and since they give the prism for free in a limited quest she's already 7*. Not bad.

Looks like CG Terra is coming out on the 14th, from the indirect news announcements today. Doubly likely, as today's update changed Trance Terra's and Archmage Kekfa's Chaos Wave Awakened frames to be JP's Mystic Cross frames, while still being officially called Chaos Wave Awakened (CWA) on Global.

I wonder if that's an intended change to force players to chase future mages who will receive these new GLEX frames. At any rate, this likely is a major stab in the back for Sol, who is stuck with the old Chaos Wave frames.

It turns out DFina was my 6th, not 5th. Oh well...

FFBE should add confirmation button when you are enhancing and accidentally push: Home / Units / Items / Shop / Summon / Friends button. Sucks and it happens alot when using small phone.

11 golds wooooooooooo.......

I'm all over CG Rain like white on rice.

I got PLENTY of resources stowed currently, so I'm going for him. Plan on using these godforsaken 30% and 10% rainbow tickets I've been saving for eternity. Tired of looking at them. Was waiting for a single rainbow banner for a unit I really want. It's taken this long to have that happen.

Welp, karma bit me in the ass hard for the other day.

Premium 10+1 --> Citra (5)

Got a 5+1 off the Chocobo Slots --> Delita (3)

Grinded out the 5 EX from the Halloween event --> Sieghard (7)

Yup, I knew I shouldn't have gotten out of bed this morning.

Grats on your Basch STMR!
There's 1 slot token if you clear the raid 3 times in the daily rewards (last week it was for the Halloween event). Maybe you missed that?

I put myself in whale mode and I YOLO’d to make my Golbez stronger, it took so much time and tickets just to get 2 Kefka it’s crazy (then used a STMR moogle), I even used all my 5* EX, but this is the result :


I think I have only 320 normal tickets left in the end, was it worth it? For my Golbez, always <3
New STMR I ended up with : Kefka / Nichol / Ignacio / Sieghard / Olive / Roy / Barbariccia
Also got some interesting unit like Myra/Sylvie but I need the IW to enhance Nichol’s weapon.
Oh and a 7* Edgar, so goodbye Lid.

For those that want the TL;DR of the video:

what's the tldr of the video

NO SUMMONFEST FOR GLOBAL. AT ALL. EVER.

* PERMANENT RAINBOW RATES INCREASE to 5% AS OF WED/THURS MAINTENANCE THIS WEEK.
* On-banner rainbow rates increasing from 1 -> 1.5% permanently.
* JP Summonfest-style reduced off-banner rainbow pulls will be in effect starting with this week's maintenance. (Can pull old units via EX tickets.)
* GLEX buffs may occur to Summonfest units. Promised no nerfs to Summonfest units if they come early to Global.

* ALL JP SUMMONFEST UNITS CAN BE UOC'D ON GLOBAL. NO INCREASE IN UOC COST FOR SUMMONFEST UNITS.
* Prisms can be UoC'd immediately. (No more 2 week waiting period.)
* Starting with this week's banner (S3 Rain), UoCs can only pull prisms (meaning that you have to pull a unit naturally first). Units before S3 Rain will still yield the full unit, as it is now.
* UoC Unit cost DECREASING from 10 to 8 for units starting with S3 Rain. (Full units may still be 10 tickets).
* NEW FEATURE: UoCs can be sold for lapis: 2000 lapis for first 5 sold, 1500 lapis thereafter (it's a trap?)
* 5k lapis gift being granted to all players (this is not the NYC livestream bonus, this is separate).
* Free weekly 10+1 given to everyone over the next 3 weeks to demo the permanent 5% rates.

Also, before the day flips, everyone go run the two free lapis ticket giveaway missions for the NYC Livestream. One of the tickets evaporates TONIGHT. You have to scroll on the Event tab all the way down to the very bottom, past the Chamber of Challenges to see the missions.
