    Do you just do the math in your head? or is there a way to know that a level 5* bartz dagger will beat a 8* bartz osb (this is just an example) for wind? or is it just a given? Thanks for taking the time to answer my stupid questions lol

    If you're below the attack soft cap (currently 589 unbuffed, 454 with onion BSB, or 393 with shout) then an elemental boost can be estimated as being worth roughly 40 base attack. Past the attack soft cap, it's worth closer to ~150 base attack. In other words, if you're able to reach the soft cap with the elemental boosting weapon, that's probably your best option.

    Ok that makes it easy, thank you.

    One more unrelated question, sort of. Are the multiplayer dungeons soloable? I really just curious, I could not get close on Gilgamesh 200. I couldn't find anything with a google search, but was just looking for Gilgamesh at the time.

    They are soloable but many of them are rather difficult to pull off. In JP I've soloed every one to date (except nemesis D300 which had a gil only prize I didn't care enough about to try), but many of them I had to use a mythril revive to build up some starting SB. It's generally much easier to do it multiplayer style, but solo is feasible with a good setup and possible mythril revive abuse.

    The hardest part about solo greg is dealing with missile when enkidu pops and the inevitable aeroga-zant combo. That ruined so many attempts for me.

    It's also much easier with a mage team since you don't have to find room for dispel.

    The XIV banners, depending on what you pulled, made Greg a lot easier (Last Stand, Stoneskin, more Wind BSBs, and reflect). If you have or RW Greg BSB, I've seen a lot of people rock that and he basically kills himself. Tornado Strike and Luneth's BSB are some more options.

    Gilgamesh is horrid, I've wiped so many times in MP because he spams zantesuken literally 3 times back-to-back in 1 second. And for whatever reason, no one but me sports resist death equipment to deal with the missiles and zantesuken.

    Greg rocks on both Greg and the dragon with BSB.

    Lenna's Burst is also amazing for Greg's MP fight given that Last Stand won't protect you from death. Managed to finish my Mastery run with everyone left alive thanks to that.

    Anyone notice Papalymo is already able to break 99 cap? I thought he wasn't getting released for that until the 18th?

    the fourth wave of MC3s released along with the XIII event, afaik he would've been the only eligible character for that wave since alph/minfillia just released.

    Oh sorry, I thought I read it wasn't scheduled until the 18th, and I didn't remember reading any announcement about it. I must have missed it.

    I got Vanille's instant BSB back on banner one and she's been in my A team for a while now. Initially I was disappointed in not getting Ysh'tola's BSB, but I'll be damned, that instant entry is so amazing.

    What do people of BG prefer more? Should I stick with Vanille's BSB for RW or do people want other stuff like fastcast faithga, Cid Raines' BSB, wall, or shout?

    No comment on RW but I really like Vanille's BSB. Yshtola is obviously the best defensively, but outside of those really high difficulty fights where you need it, having zero offensive ability really hurts. OTOH, Vanille's command 1 is beastly, and the instant bsb helps start that faster.

    My favorite multiplayer pairing is Vanille + Yshtola >_> especially on holy weak mobs. Vanille is incredibly useful having the flexibility of awesome instant cast cures, and also the potential to push damage.

    I have to go with vanilles over ysh although ysh is more different than worse (if you have a drawfire/magic lure tank then ysh command 1 is great but instant cast on vanilles gives so much tempo that the bubble can't really match).

    Anyone know when Noel gets home 99 cap? I kind of like how he works with his SB. And he has 4* white magic. So he's another situational DD to help the healer get buffs up too.

    Sadly it's gonna take at least 4 months, he's in the second to last batch alongside Sazh.

    For RW, unless you have something that is super useful for the current event (like lightning BSB for XIII U++), set stuff with dailies in mind. I have OK's Vessel set. BSBs with an AoE command or high regen, haste, or medica. Usually what I take for dailies.

    Do any stats influence sg/ss or are they just 1 duration period?
