Those flawed prisms are, along with the white dragon scales, one of the most annoying items to get for the eternals final uncap. Thanks for reminding me I need to do those daily trades in the shop for them.

You know what else gets me salty? getting a steel brick on the scratch tickets, and it's not even about getting steel bricks instead of those jackpot prizes, it's about getting a single one that makes me salty. Give me a dozen! I don't want to touch the casino ever again! But I guess I can't complain for free stuff.

I can at least but scales and scrolls with Cerulean stones. Can't do that with flawed prisms

Well I jsut found out I'm 1000 Flawed Prisms short on the final stretch to flb Okto
Daily trade cap removal when. I've been cockblocked by that on most of my Eternal uncaps. Even right now.

Although I might actually be done with it all by the time they get around to it, just like NKMR's face when they finally announced the nightmare halo change.

Evolite, while I do agree with A.J. that you might think about a sunstone, the change to how frequently we can get valor badges means evolite imho.

Meanwhile in Cygames office:

KMR: People aren't playing 2.0 dragons. I need ideas on how to change that.

FKHR: Don't worry I made 2.0 bubs to drop evolites (0.03%) in host chest and players will need dragon mats to host. Now everyone will be forced to play it!

KMR: Genius FKHR-san!

Serious talk tho, it probably won't be now since you only need 10 evolites in total atm, but eventually when Evokers' uncaps drop and there's a need for more evolite (plus whatever opus-equivalent weapon they want to use it for, maybe even the upcoming arcarum weapons) I think they should give a means to grind for it, like gold bricks.

dama crystals: no
sunlight stone: most immediately useful to a new player, but can easily be gotten through guild war and arcarum. somewhat limited, but steady. so yes/no
gold bar: mostly used for guild war characters, one of which you just got for free in the event. if you're good enough, i'd say get a gold bar for making more juutenshu
evolite: "THE" pick, if you're good enough. super rare, but personally, i have 4 and haven't used one yet, because i'm too lazy to do arcarum.

super new player, can't do anything, will be super casual: sunlight (a really bad choice)
decent player: gold bar
dedicated player, long term advantage: evolite

if you're lucky and get a nice summon you want to max out, you will want a sunlight stone asap
if you're working hard on juutenshu (guild war characters), you will want more gold bars in about six months
if you're working hard on arcarum, you will want more evolite in about a year


after looking at rotb, you can get a bunch of gold bars there. so 99% people should get evolite

I found I still had my details for this game so I redownloaded it to my phone and started playing again, I think I kind of understand how weapon skills and summon bonuses interact now, so I'm out doing my daily celeste omegas to try get that to level 80/100 so I can use it as main summon to buff the omega gift weapons I've acculumated for my dark team.

Getting used to the 2.0 battle system and its alright. Guard and being told who getting blasted with Special attack is great info to have.

The system defiantly needs more work, dislike how sometimes I would accidentally hit a trigger and can't guard because I used a characters skill. Also, how a Special attack would do no damage against a guarded unit or literally one shot them (still don't understand Heat Ray). And plain damage can always go f itself, hate that mechanic.

The Battle System 2.0 section clarifies that they do not plan to retrofit older content with Battle System 2.0 - Unite and Fight and other existing quests will stay the same.

Cygames decide what future content uses 2.0 and what does not on a case by case basis.

That's disappointing. A lot of older content would benefit from the Boss Trigger/Attack UI at a minimum.

Huh. I'm surprised they aren't using it for recurring content like Unite and Fight.

The new chain burst mechanic gimps a lot of characters (and some weapons), so it wouldn't be too well received. Using Battle System 2.0 on events like the next GW, after some people spent a lot of resources to get characters like Vajra or weapons like the Ca Ong sword, would piss a lot of players.

It's better to restrict it to new raids for now. At least until the game is rebalanced to the new system or players have built teams and grids around it.

It also means that they don't have to re-design Ultima/Opus keys around CA Cap up, which is borderline useless in the new system

Whichever element you want a boost in, 33% ex mod is a lot. We'll probably slot one into every grid eventually.

Otherwise second on the dark claw which seems like the most useful outright, since the element has no problems MAing and the cap break is equivalent to the Ultima's. Dark also uses lucha in a few comps.

I picked up the Fire one because i had a huge lack of TA. But maybe i should have picked the Dark one... I hope they won't be too "hard" to farm.

I know most people in the strongest EOP crew went for Fateless! Actually, I don't think anyone went for anything other than that.

Most likely because the water gw is before the raid comes out so for the other ones you can get them from that before their respective gws

it's been possible to do it with pubs since may of last year; whether or not you're going to have a good time trying it is another question, especially if you're not pulling your own weight
Well there's not much more I can do for my grids besides ULB Dark Opus so I don't see why I couldn't pull my own weight.

Reminder to use your anniversay or any other ticket for cute boys like these. ArthurMordred is truly precious and a step up from the other Arthur. Not to mention they are core for wind with CA Bar Up and CA Damage Cap Up

Had a 10 draw and Frenzy, ended up with 80 draws, a Summer Alex moon, but I also got the Lanchan and Vane skin I wanted so bad I ended up doing nearly 600 draws for last year (abandoned spark and a completed spark plus roulette)

I wouldn’t advise using an anniversary ticket, but full disclosure I DID SupTix them

I've gotten 1/2 elixers, rings, and 9000 gems. I'd really like some summons. All of mine are trash.

I've gotten Crystals twice, Gold Moons twice, and the ultima units were nice I guess.
