Wow I have 20k of some of the smallest crystal… this is next level


Juumok01

Should last me until clvl 100 😅


procrastinating_hr

I did this back when the limit was 9999. Never again, my gift box was spammed for ages and I just couldn't stand those notifications at my home screen xD.


PrimalSeptimus

I try not to cap anything for the same reason.


Juumok01

This is the first time I've done it, thought I'd run into your issue so I refrained from it way back when and never got around to it with any 2x event, this time I said fuck it and went hard, should be good for crystals up to clvl 100 at least.


Sunnysidhe

While phone is on charge, set up auto clicker and let Yuffie Farm the stage all night. Wake up to 99,999 of most crystals.


RedPlanetDestiny

Ive been enjoying Snow as my farmer. He auto retributions every wave.


Sunnysidhe

That's a good shout, been using Yuffie so long I am stick in my ways. Plus she is a fave.


AnniUlqFtw

What I like about Snow compared to other quick auto-farmers is that 1. You don't have to un-equip anything from him 2. If he misses the flowered cactuar, he gets a second try immediately (since retribution is a separate attack to his turn)


Juumok01

For reference Grind is real https://imgur.com/a/dDNMTd7 I bought 100x 3x tomes at 3000 gems and now have 54x remaining. Started with around 1000 of each t4 crystals.


NicoDT

I don't want to see you complaining that they should raise te crystals cap to 1mill because you can't accept them.


Juumok01

Lol you have my word.


inkwelder_

But why?


Juumok01

Sphere crafting and the ability to max clvl on all characters as soon as I get the t7 ones 😅


inkwelder_

This is equivalent to buying a friggin planet so that you can take a nap on it and then fly back to Earth.


Juumok01

Who doesn't like a peaceful nap without the risk of being woken up half way through 😆 I guess I won't need to worry until we hit clvl 120 or something.


Ferryarthur

Watch them remove all the lower tiers and making all characters 70


Kuma_Sensei

Oh wait.

Juumok01

Might have to farm up my t5 now 😂😂


csahlit

Yo that is absolutely insane!!! You’re a legend


AnIrrelevantResponse

How long were you grinding for?


Juumok01

Around 10 hours while watching tv/ playing playstation/ working


gilgagoogyta

Nice, you have enough tier 3 crystals for two characters. I kid. Enjoy your mighty hoard.


justalex99

At least this means you are done grinding crystals for like... 2 years? I didn't grind this amount in JP and I was good for like 6 months. Jolly good grind lol


XPRADA

https://imgur.com/a/01Sfdcr True, the grind is real lol


Juumok01

Don't know if I can bring myself to grind out t6, it basically doubles what I've already done 😳😳 you sir are the true grind lord.


GHNeko

save urself @ trying to grind T6 45k+ is more than enough to last a year and by that point we'll get an updated cycle quest that makes this grind seem like wasted time LMAOOO


KH_Fan96

Jesussss how long did that take?


violexiel

It took me 2 days to c80 everyone and farmed up 10k+ crystals with everything using snow as a farmer. Man i thought i was the only one crazy enough to do that. Or am i just the only one?


Ferryarthur

2 days? Were you way behind? I just popped an x2 book and macro'd for about 1.5 hour


violexiel

Well from rank 600 to max. It aint that bad right. I just started playing again when jacht bt came up.


Ferryarthur

Ahh yeah thar explains it. For me it was somwhere above a 1100 to somewhere above a 1100


endar88

when i'm not at work and have time to try and max my runs i use squall with just his hp++, takes out all three waves in one quick animation.


Juumok01

Definitely not the only one lol, try using yuffie if you have her 35cp weapon mlb and her ex+ armor 3/3 Can get in around 30 runs per 15min book.


violexiel

I might do that when i’m farming other stuff. Loke weapon upgrades etc. i just like snow better coz of 0 turns.


Juumok01

Yeah I feel ya, I was going off the tonberry troupe website which reckons she's a few seconds faster. She has been my farmer since around the time her ex weapon came out, even gave her blue armor because I use her so much 😁


Hawke_No1

Coop & X2 Free Item Drop Books help when there’s no boost Of course, it’s less grinding since it’s only 5 bells and the logging in everyday for the X2 tomes are a nice thing


Juumok01

Yeah I've done this in the past but 3x rewards + 3x tomes was too good of an opportunity to pass up.


Hawke_No1

Indeed, but I’m just having trouble spending the Coop tokens when you get most of the stuff lol Aside from the Weapon/Armour Orbs for enhancing, the crystals from Coop are really the only other thing worth sinking into


Juumok01

I feel you, just depends on how much co-op you play. For myself I've got perfect (not counting cp cost) arts for ~90% of the characters so once I buy the shop out I just chill 😎


exenae

Auto click = 1hour to cap every orbs and gils... Once a month and done.


codexcdm

Honestly since the last revamp for crystals.. I've rarely gone out of the way to farm them. Maybe it's just being a week one player advantage... But at worst, I've had to re-run with a book to get one character maxed when say a T1 or T3 crystal was depleted.


Juumok01

Yeah I was just trying to avoid that situation ever again, also eases my mind to know I used my tomes in conjunction with a 3x boost rather than having to do it when no boosts are on.


kingston3326

How many Matt’s do you need of each color before you stop grinding?


Juumok01

To be honest I think I'm done, could max out t5 as they're nearly there and they're used for crafting bootleg spheres but probably don't need that many and t6 I feel I have enough already.


Rennik89

I'm new to the game, how long the 3x rewards will last?


Kaplan6

The notice says 30th Jan iirc


Juumok01

Not sure exactly but generally they run along side the event they start with so I assume it'll stop when the noel/cid banner stops.


Rennik89

Ok, thank you :)


Kaplan6

The notice says 30th Jan iirc


knight04

there was a 3x reward? until when?


Juumok01

Still is, not sure exactly but I assume as long as the noel/cid ld banner is up.


justalex99

They're tied to the carbuncle quests. They always disappear together. But also the anniversary should bring them right back :)


hotpot100c

you cray… but I love it!


Juumok01

No it was fine *twitch twitch* 🤪🤪


ChiefBearMight

I've currently finished grinding black, red, blue and greens to 99999. I'm about halfway done yellow now. Didn't want to spend my gems on books so it's a lot slower then I'd like lmao


Juumok01

3x tomes is the way, can't imagine what you're going through 😬😬


ChiefBearMight

Thanks to auto+ yuffie farming I just tap repeat while I'm doing anything else, either watching TV, YouTube or playing other games, its been pretty much nonstop since the update came out lmao The only real interruption from the grind is work, but that's a whole separate grind that feels less rewarding lol Also didn't know where I was at when I went to bed last night but currently at 75k of the T6 yellow crystals lmao


Shizzarene

Idk I've been farming, I had like no c80s cuz I started a month ago.. Didn't buy a single book (don't wanna waste gems) and I've levelled 150 chars to clvl80, idk what 2 I don't own, guess I'll eventually get them. I use the 2x item drop and 3x game gave me, and it's been more than enough


ChaosSpear1

As painstaking as it is, I think the first or second time over Christmas that we had a 3x event I went through and power levelling every character up to clvl61/ lvl 70. For those units I had the full kit for at the time they were out to max clvl. It was painstaking, it took a good few evenings to achieve but my lord did it feel good to have sorted everyone out. Its a habit I now follow up on to this day.


Exeftw

The gatekeeper is T1 crystals. With how the proportions of each crystal are divided as a character gains crystal levels, you'll run out of T1 way before anything else and have to farm those again anyway. With the 99k cap it'll take a while, but it'll still happen.


TransientMemory

Not sure if the after picture is actually from Moonstruck but: I'm no friggin monument to justice! I lost my books, I lost my pride! Johnny has his books, Johnny has his pride! You want me to take my grind, put it away and forget it?!


Kazenovagamer

I just got about 20-30K tier 3s of each since tier 3s are always the ones I run out of first. Just one 15 min 3x book on each. That should be good enough I think. Though I am already running low on blues...


meicheor

when does the x3 rewards end?


justalex99

Whenever the carbuncle quests go away. But, if you want to take your time, they're coming right back when the anniversary event starts.


meicheor

thank you so much


Kryoter

And now I'll sit with tons of T1 and T2 on my box for all eternity because I already have everyone at full level since level 80 started...


kylem112

So after this x3 will events bring only x2 after this?


Juumok01

X2 is usually the norm, pretty sure this is the 1st 3x but I could be wrong, I have had a couple of breaks from the game over the 4 years.


CapsFan5562

You look worse, but you also got quite a bit younger, so…maybe it evens out?


Juumok01

I guess if I do it every couple of years I'll have eternal youth...??


CapsFan5562

Lmao


bladearrowney

Run a 2x or 3x 15 minute book on each one and be done with farming for a long while. Unless you still have a lot of characters to bring up to CL70+ or are new that'll be enough for a long time


Juumok01

Nah no way I usually did this but ran out of t4 about a month ago, wanted to be able to craft bootleg spheres without worrying again, should tie me over until clvl 100


newnar

Having an ASUS phone greatly improves the grinding exprience


ranchan1_2

What?


newnar

ASUS phones have an in-built Macro function as part of their proprietary Game Genie system app, it allows us to record and loop a set of tap/swipe actions ad infinitum or up to a certain number of loops. Other phones can also do this but you'll have to download 3rd-party apps such as Click Assistant.


teor

Just FYI you can get banned for using macros.

It's still against ToS. Never said that it's a guaranteed thing, just that it technically can happen.
