    I could have bought an 11 pull and have 1000 gems left over, but all I got was this silly title.

    Final Fantasy Record Keeper MMXVII-2: The sequel thread we never asked for

    Bard motes are nowhere to be seen in the foreseeable future. Krile, Eiko and Deuce would love them for Magicite dungeons after all. Mog and Kefka still don't have their Record Spehre grids. Game is dying.

    At least Curilla and Ayame got their MC3s.

    A lot of us are on the BG discord server. Occasionally we try and get Multiplayer groups up but most of the time we're busy driving, working, or doing other things that we ignore our phones. We do give each other advice on party builds and the like. And we all go "God Damn it Lani" when she posts a pull. We help newer people who then post their ffrk central profile, and we collectively state "You have Wall, Shout, and Medica... You're set," more often than not.

    Useful links:
    5* mote tracker
    MisterP's pdf(last updated in June, but still has a lot of info)
    Relic banner schedule and relic info


    Enjoy the 30th anniversary event and Magicite dungeons.

    Do we know when the next Spellblade motes come? It seems I have 0, so I guess we got them before I was able to start tackling higher level content. :/

    So I have no idea how to use Faris now

    SBs are

    Sea Lord Barrage (AOE Atk + MAG down)
    BSB (single target FB), C1 ATK down, C2 MAG down
    And now her USB2

    The good news is that they all stack, the bad news is no idea how to cycle those 3 SBs

    Also I'm guessing its good to Fully LD her? (I don't have any LMR for her) but i got enough to fully LD her

    It's probably a simple matter of forgoing her "damage" output, equipping a breakdown of choice + wrath and Ace Striker. Should easily be able to keep 2 up without any diving, probabaly all 3 with some debuff duration.

    Since you have her BSB as well, might be able to even forego the breakdown and just do double wrath or a dance when you need it.

    Contemplating whether to even worry about 30th now outside the free pulls and LD, grab some IV synergy next week, and then just hunker down for Meliadoul.

    On the plus side, Bartz is going from lvl 1 dived to full dived. Took more mythril than I wanted, but his elemental ability output for 2/3rds of magicite dungeons helps me shore up a lot of teams.

    She is also gonna be even better LD when the 50% Wall Break and Reverse Wall Break dances land. They are 10 sec duration, but her LM2 makes them 14 sec and saves a SB charge by not using Sea Lord Barrage.

    yeah for cycling multiples you just slap a wrath on her + an ability of your choice. it's usually armor breakdown, mug, or affliction break for me.

    so here's a question -- is it ever worth using a non-synergy weapon with an elemental boost over a synergy piece? i got dorgann's sword with the wind boost, but i also already have good weapons (that cloud can use, mainly) for most realms. is there a rule of thumb attack value you need to exceed where the raw stats outperform the elemental boost? FWIW i always run an elemental boost armor since i think i have more than enough to outfit an entire team at this point.

    If you are above the attack soft cap with buffs, then +element damage > higher atk. It's the same rationale why you go Truthseeker or Love's wake over a +ATK RM. I guess the exception to the rule is when you're trying to get to higher ATK for Omega Drive/Lifebane.

    If you can hit the soft cap, elemental boost weapons will out damage synergy weapons. For physical teams that's pretty easy to hit. Magic is a little more complicated since the soft cap is so high. Below the soft cap the elemental boost translates to around 30-40 points in the relevant stat. I usually go with elemental boost weapons even if I can't quite hit the soft cap.

    Elemental boost weapons are really good to use rosetta stones on since it'll make it easier to hit the soft cap.

    DU update renewal coming up in JP which adds a bunch of extra stuff for newer players (mainly souls and lodes), removes some trash stages and also changes something about RWs. No, this won't reset the rewards so no new shards or mythril to gain here. If you have them cleared they'll send some stuff to your box depending on how much you've done. Hopefully they're preparing for some final boss stuff, it's long overdue.

    Ahh that would make sense. There really are a ton of fights where they add dungeon monsters where there never were.

    The exact wording was "reducing trash" but we don't have a concrete answer yet. I'm guessing some of the old dungeons will see some of their trash stages reduced to the standard 2 we have now in newer ones if they're not removing them altogether.
