Ugh good point, Lenna's healing is so sub-par, I'm gonna try that. I do have Krile CSB so that'll be the option. Elements are all over the place though.
This game sure has some funny RNG....got some worthless 5* with no SB yesterday, and ended up pulling Y'Shtola's glint today, and this was probably after a solid month of no 5*s.
Whelp, we Yu-Gi-Oh now.And the new SB tier is called synchro SB
Nice work. This inspired me to try again. I have rems aosb and USB and swapped your machina for eight with usb. 46.77. think I can get this below 40 if really wanted to but likely not sub 30 yet. Need the six star ice monk ability.
Awakening double cast and ability double don't stack.4/11
Not bad. Ramza is on my holy team already to buff, so it's nice to have an option for his extra meter now.
TGC missing Arcane, but I don't consider that terribly important... I just liked having him complete. Does ability double stack with Woke dual cast? Since it doesn't spend an ability use, I'm guessing not? Trying to understand if it's worth having both Ultra and Woke active simultaneously.
Fest banners almost never are the same as JP, but those were the banners
I've not seen the math on it, but I guess its worth using if you're not capping. +50% damage is equivalent to an en-element.
That was rough, I don't understand DeNa's obsession with making the wind magicite the hardest ones.
Yeah, I kind of figured that ultimately making sure I can clear Madeen is more practically important but it still kills me lol.Did the USB select since no Alph chain on chain select. Got Emperor LMR2 (En-Earth) and Sice USB, both new. Not bad. Will pick Zidane USB2 on last day of selection unless I get it from the daily beforehand.
Speaking of the daily, I've been getting trolled of late: After going 27 days without a hit, my longest stretch, I've gotten 4 hits in the last 7 days. But 3 of them have been dupes. Worse, one of the dupes was the 6* - Rosa USB1 - which was not only a dupe of the last 6* I got on the daily 122 days prior, but that was also a dupe (have a 6++ now I guess; good MND weapon for Torment).
Seymour chain would guarantee a sub-30 against MAdeen/Lakshmi with your dark tech. It should be noted that Madeen is the most important 5* magicite to farm. Lakshmi is also very useful, both as a replacement for Unicorn (when you need Astra) and as a replacement for Siren (to boost your healer/healers, which will actually become more important going forward). You could probably beat them without a chain, but I guarantee you that Lakshmi will piss you off (hell, she might piss you off with Seymour chain, but you have a better chance to skip the statuses with a chain). Madeen isn't too bad though. You should try them without dark chain and see how you fare first.
The problem is, without AOSBs, Snow chain isn't going to help much against Syldra. You say you can't get below 40% - the fight doesn't start until she reaches 40% and High Stakes kicks in. That's when she starts slamming you with Savage Thunderbolt (AoE 75% Max HP), stacks imperils and then drops piercing wind attacks for 6000+ that ignore magic blinks. The damage before that is mild in comparison. If you don't have Last Stand you won't last longer than 3 turns after HIgh Stakes, tops, assuming you heal right after Savage Thunderbolt, and even IF you have Last Stand, Syldra attacks so fast that a single healer will get overwhelmed even with entrusts.
If you had Snow's USB (ice radiant), it would have been a consideration. That and/or his Last Stand BSSB, though running CSB/USB1/BSSB1 would be tough without entrusts.
Do note that there are... unconventional methods to beating SYldra that you can try, like a semi-Radiant Shield strat (use Alphinaud SSB, three Last Stand healers, and Squall w/ BSSB to chip away), but that's a 30+ minute fight and one screwup late means you have to start over, so I persomally don't recommend it but it IS an option.
Otherwise, for your sanity I'd recommend getting Seymour chain and beating the Holy magicites to continue progress, at least, and come back for Syldra later when you have better ice tech (either a gen 2 ice chain, physical ice AASBs/AOSBs, or preferably both). If all else fails, we'll be a getting a free ice chain in about 4 months and it's on Fran, who is a much better character to hold the chain than Snow. The only fight you need Syldra for is Adamantoise, which is a low priority magicite (though not as low priority as Hecatoncheir). Yes, the L20 Mag Boon is important, but you can get by on a Madeen with 2 xL15 Mag Boon for now and get most of the same benefit.
BTW, have you fought Typhon? While a total DPS race, that one's a lot less of a pain than Syldra (Rinoa chain is a great help; basically chain + 2 good DPS + OK muSB + Elarra is sufficient to win). A MAdeen with 2 x L20 Atk Boon will definitely help against Syldra, regardless.
Even geared for magic Seph will still need a lot of buffs to play Dark Mage. I needed 3 different mag buffs to get Riku doing consistently over 10k. Go ahead an get Seymour's chain and save yourself a bit of trouble.I'll give Madeen/Lakshmi a go and see what happens. I remember that I DID try Madeen once, but even geared with the best MAG stuff I have Seph was not doing great damage at all with his AASB, like ~6k a hit on his abilities. I may have been doing something wrong though for sure, and that was also before I got Nabaat's USB and w-cast darkness LMR which is probably going to be an enormous help.
I have all three USB and have a very hard time mixing it with mUSB. I either need to recast haste or there's just not enough meter. It's pretty good, though. Until I got more specialists, he was an excellent fill. I would not spend $30 on it if you're considering it for gem select, though.
Thanks that is what I suspected.I have all three USB and have a very hard time mixing it with mUSB. I either need to recast haste or there's just not enough meter. It's pretty good, though.
