I got 3 Fujin CSBs on my first pull (right after getting Alph CSB from the chain banner)
Got a total of 4 Fujin Chains and 1 dupe Fujin USB.

Shanny’s triple cast LMR will be my next Lv2 lens purchase. I can’t wait.Beat lightning-weak Dark Odin.
Ashe USB1 + AOSB
Shantotto AASB + AOSB
Garnet Chain + USB2
Shantotto's AASB is ridiculous. Especially if you have her triple cast LMR. I had one failed run where she quad-casted twice lol
Radiant shield is nice too have for this fight. He dishes out so many multi hit attacks, especially in phase 3. Was surprised that I got it within 3 or 4 tries.
Who needs astra.
Probably a bit too late since you already farmed it but I think you only need 3 of any magicites for the stat bounds as they max out at level 80 iirc.
FUCK I FORGOT ABOUT THIS
Yeah I happened to see this on reddit, good callout though.
1) With your relics, you can use En-wind and Sword+ LMRs, and bring his 6* glint, Awakening ang AOSB. Then, just get enough SB gauge, 6* glint -> Awakening -> 3x 5* wind spellblade -> AOSB. If you have a wind Chain - specially if you have Zack's chain - most things will be dead at this point.Okay, so I did 3 pulls on Banner 2 and did 2 of my 3 planned gem pulls here instead of Selects because my only sticking points currently are Slydra and Hect, and Cloud AASB currently has no recurrence in Japan. I've got 2 Hects cleared but it's an enormous struggle, but was mostly hoping for Squall. I failed there, but that said I really can't complain here. Across my 3 pulls I got:
-Deuce LMR and USB3
-Noctis Sword+ LMR and AASB
-Cloud enWind LMR, IC/0SB enWind 6* Glint and AASB
Hect is...obviously not an issue now. So that said I've got 3 questions:
1)I have no idea how to Cloud. I somehow kept stumbling into most of his stuff BUT any of his USBs, so I legitimately can't remember the last time I even used him. I've got his: Wind QC chance LMR, enWind LMR, enDark LMR, enDark Glint, IC enWind Glint, SSB1, BSB1, BSB2, OSB1, OSB2, AOSB1, AOSB2, AASB
Ignoring that I guess I could probably slot him into an Earth team using Heavy abilities, and definitely a Dark team if needed with his Dark stuff, what's the best way to use him on a Wind team? I can't remember how enelements stack; should I be doing enWind LMR + Wind QC LMR + Sword+ RM then in battle the IC Glint into AASB? Is there any point to still grabbing any of his USBs? I never got them so I'm not sure how the interactions work etc.
2)Similar to above, how do I Noctis? I know people are a bit mellow on his AASB because it's not enelement, but it's still a AASB and covers multiple elements, and he can use a variety of schools. With this pull total I've got his Combat w-cast LMR, Sword+ LMR, and his SSB/Glint/BSB/USB/OSB and AASB now. The "problem" is that all of his stuff is mostly Combat focused, and the elemental coverage on his AASB/w-casts are going to come from other schools. I'm guessing just because it's an AASB it's still gonna be good enough to warrant bringing for physical elemental fights and just have him use Samurai/Dragoon etc w-casts?
3)Does any of this stuff give me a chance in hell against Slydra now? Rinoa is my only ice chain. My best physical ice options that I've been trying is Laguna (ice imperil USB + Icy Offering + Freezing Snipe) and Squall (Ice Glint/BSB2/USB1/USB2) but I just can't do the damage. I feel like Laguna is kind of a requirement for the imperils due to Slydra's barIce, but would I maybe be able to make Noctis or Cloud work with I guess 5/6* Samurai stuff? They wouldn't be able to w-cast anything as far as I'm able to tell (I would murder Cloud to be able to use SSS) but they'd maybe still be able to break cap at least? I'm desperate here lol. I could do another pull on this banner in hopes of Squall AASB but I know that'd be very foolish.
1)I have both Faris and Zack chains, so yeah I should be good lol. I imagine I'll grab his USB1 from lens. This AASB not having a recurrence yet in Japan was what tipped me over the edge into pulling, so this is a great consolation prize from not getting Squall.1) With your relics, you can use En-wind and Sword+ LMRs, and bring his 6* glint, Awakening ang AOSB. Then, just get enough SB gauge, 6* glint -> Awakening -> 3x 5* wind spellblade -> AOSB. If you have a wind Chain - specially if you have Zack's chain - most things will be dead at this point.
If you can get his USB1, his damage cap will be 99999, instead of 19999. That increases his max damage potential by 5 times. Clouds USB1 -> AASB is probably the most powerful combo in the game right now. Cloud is basically how people deal with physical Titan
2) Noctis Awakening works very well by itself. Just Awakening -> ability spam. For fire, he can use the 6* samurai, for lightning the (still unreleased) 6* Ripper Plasma, and for earth, I guess the multi-hit Heavy abilities.
3) Icy Offering is almost mandatory against Syldra. Since you have Laguna's USB, bring him with the offering. With Squall, his USB2 is more consistent than his BSB2, but BSB2 has a higher damage potential if you're lucky with W-casts. You can try to use Cloud/Noctis with the 6* Ice Samurai ability, but I'm not sure they can break 10k against Syldra, and you will need a way to beat her after High Stakes
USB2 adds only the finisher, as the Rank Boost from USB2 doesn't stack with Rank Boost from the Awakening.Did all of the anniversary stuff and caught up on realm dungeons some. Used the mythril to pull Zidane Woke + both Cloud Materias.
Zidane Woke seems very strong. I have his USB2 and dual cast materia already. Seems like the USB2 finisher goes well with Woke, but other than that there's not too much synergy. Though, the thief boost will help cap earlier.
