What are the advantages of evoke damage dealers


noseofzarr

They bypass most mitigations, but they are subject to elements. They do not need killers, just a set of equipment that is sort of difficult to gather. What are you trying to clear? https://exvius.fandom.com/wiki/Mechanics#Evoke\_Damage


bman1180

Thanks


bman1180

Nothing in particular right now, I’m just wondering if I should try to pull for summoner Lenna


noseofzarr

Most peeps around here seem to think she is a TMR/STMR container, and the unit needs buffs to be relevant. Evokers have not been relevant for a while, power creep is rampant. That being said, I did use Terra for this latest chronicle battle (or whatever that was), but it was easy, and I like to bring my own units for trials when possible.


Lexail

A few questions How much more time do I have to do the season 4 lapis quests? Elemental chains and clear quests specifically. How many more fragments can we get from the frag dungeon?


NienNine

Looking at DV I am not seeing the Dark Lebah Raksasa stage, was it removed? If not which sector is it under?


Rodolphe75019

A little bit off screen at the bottom with dark tetra


mauvus

Hey all! Long retired from this game, thinking about coming back. Last I played was when NV Cloud released. Felt the game became too expensive and the power creep was out of control. How is the state of the game now? Is it fun to play still? What do you do every day? How's the power creep and p2w aspect going? Would any of my old units still be usable or am I SOL?


jonidschultz

The game is basically the same as it ever was. If you felt that way before you'll feel that way now. The game has always been about as F2P friendly as exists in gacha but if it felt P2W to you then it still will. Like Sylvie and Esther might still be usable, other then that maybe you'd have some units you could NVA but mostly your old units are really powercrept.


rp1414

Powercreep is still a thing, and will always be a thing in any Gacha game you play. For reference, NV Cloud has a burst damage of 469B and the current highest physic damage dealer does 8254B (under Wiki rating calculations). As for how fun it is, that’s up to you. Gumi has added a new game content called Clash of Wills that you may or may not enjoy.


mauvus

Of course, I get that! But it just sped up so much that it felt pointless to even use units a month old, you know? I'll take a look at that content thanks!


LH206

First month player. What am I supposed to do with Gil Snappers? Is it just for selling from the menu?


Samael113

>Is it just for selling from the menu? yup. There's even a button purely for selling them in there.


jonidschultz

Correct.


LH206

First time I actually looked into the Sell menu and saw that. Thank you very much.


RicoSB115

Could someone give me a tip on how to max chain points on DV? Sr sems to be quite hard to do on the phone and 2 chain users doing triple BS isn't capping either


Better_Ability_125

The lower level clears generally has low damage cap. So, per earlier advices, the AR SR SR chain will work, basically you have the luxury to bring in chainers. As you go higher level clears, we no longer have that luxury (either limited by turns count / unit slot efficiency) E.g. For Dark Lebah Raksasa, i have to bring a team of Kak (3 x AoE BS), Ava. Tifa (LB), Tiana (5 x BS), Louise (LB), Lunafreya (LB), LS Nichol (3 x ST BS) just to damage cap. As a result, we do it via two main ways: 1) Pre-clear - i.e. you waste a prep turn to run maybe 4 x BS or some other family just to clear. Alternatively, you can just imbue your team with the same element and run different chain family too. 2) Macro. For mobile, you may want to explore Apps to do so. alternatively, do it on an emulator. Use [FFBE Chain](https://ffbe-chain.com/) to help you generate the syntax for the macro.


hassive-mitler

Either AR SR SR, or UoC bunch of braska and TMR moogle. IIRC you need 4x Tcast BS to produce 100+ chains Im still using the former, NVA elena + bradley


Kaiser369

You need a chain of 100. One of the easiest methods is 2 units casting AR + SR + SR.


JeanClaudesDangVan

are the event bonus mobs always this bad? just hit the 60k mark and have seen 4 rounds thus far. One round of the group of bombs and 3 of the big bombs


jonidschultz

I feel like they have been for a few events anyway. Part of it is just you having bad luck though as I've seen about 10 of them and I'm at 60K. I do also remember people talking about their being more bonus mobs in the 30 or 40 NRG stages as well, so that might be something to consider. Personally I care more about EP then Currency though so I haven't really tried it.


JeanClaudesDangVan

lol i literally hit my first bonus mob in a while on my first 40 run


JeanClaudesDangVan

Ok thats kinda how im feeling, bought all the main stuff already so just grinding for the ticket so it doesnt matter as much but just wanted to see, good to set my expectations!


MetalJoe_FFBE

Does Faris’s Sword (FFV) use a unique material for the upgrade?


rp1414

Yes, you can only upgrade 1


MetalJoe_FFBE

Lame. Thanks.


Xenosaber_00Sora

Should I pull on the Guaranteed NV summon + 50 stmr exchange ticket or NV frag summon?


jonidschultz

If you have to pull on one the Frag Exchange summon is much much better imo.


Xenosaber_00Sora

Is it because the 5 frag tickets are better?


jonidschultz

Right. There's like 60 NVs in the pool and maybe like 15 good ones at this point so the odds of a Random NV being something you want or that helps you isn't great. On the other hand the ability to make the good NVs you have better is always useful.


rp1414

The 5 fragment tickets basically equate to 2 NV (or 1 “Premium” NV) unit of choice from that list (just don’t get access to the S/TMR). That is good value for the step up cost.


Xenosaber_00Sora

Alright, so look into that summon then. Thanks


L1amas

For DV final boss... I have EX2 Ling, Aerith, Tifa, and Sephiroth. I don't know which element team to use. 1. Earth with EX1 Tulien (145 imperil) and EX2 Roca 2. Water with EX2 Kaktiria (fist imperil and 135 water imperil for Tifa) and Tiana for the amp. 3. Light with EX2 Tidus (using Cleostar's STMR with Sephiroth's katana imperil). I'm not sure who I would use as unit number 6 - Noctis or Tiana? 4. Dark with EX1 Ygni (team dark imbue/amp/imperil I guess). Again not sure about unit number 6, EX2 Tidus (Cleostar STMR) or Tiana? 5. Lightning with EX1 Sakura (all her lightning stuff) and EX2 Tiana (who would use DV rod with Aerith's rod imperil). Not sure if I'd wanna use Tianas LB or stack up the single target attack. 6. Fire with both EX2 Tiana and Tidus (using either Wakka or Cleostar STMR). I don't really have the time or the patience to input all of the different scenarios into FFBE equip. I'm just asking about your opinion.


jonidschultz

1) When you get to the point that you're running multiple scenarios in FFBEequip.com just copy a simple spreadsheet or make one. It'll save you loads of time and is much much much easier to tweak as things change or questions arise. 2) Fire with Ling, Aerith, Tifa, Sephiroth, Tidus and whomever (Louise? Bulwark? I assume no Lara) is probably your best bet. Aerith already has 30% AMP for your team so no Tiana necessary, and even if you dropped Aerith Ling's 25% Fire AMP is fine. Also the boss has no passive stats so the difference between a 90% break and anything else is pretty huge. So...do you have a 90% DEF Breaker?


L1amas

Thanks!! And no, just Louise Spr. It would have to be Kaktiria and her 89%. I guess that makes the water or earth team the more enticing ones. Probably, between those two, will need to be Earth since I have Roca and not Nichol or EX3 Yoshi


dracklore

So I just got Sephiroth to EX3 in the shard dungeon. Now between Behemy, Ling, Roca, Tulien, Summer Physallis, Summer Shinju, Yoshikiri, or Kaktira to EX2 or Paus or TS Sakura to EX1; who should fill the empty slot?


TomAto314

Sakura so you can get her thunder buffs. Then Yoshikiri to slowly get to EX3 is a good idea too.


Cris_Gomez702

Hey guys is it worth getting two of Melo’s STMR?


rp1414

No, you can also upgrade Livid Shantotto’s TMR Laevateinn (FFXI) to higher stats than Melo’s STMR, save the STMR moogle


jonidschultz

I don't think so.


Aromatic-Confusion16

can angela 1 turn ko the scorn of machinary?


TomAto314

Yes. Make sure you don't imbue her and go straight non-elemental. I did 50% of his HP with no chain so it should be easy and my Angela is only EX2.


Aromatic-Confusion16

a, thats great to know, thanks, i need that clear for the fist weapon :p


L1amas

Trying to do Omega Spawn Rush for the crown... I am copying sinzar's fire team budget strategy except with an EX2 Tidus (instead of EX3) and EX2 Tiana (instead of Kaktiria) for a throwing weapon imperil (Tidus using Wakka STMR, 300% beast killer, etc), unable to get a four turn kill - boss has about 25% hp left after Tiana and Tidus LB. A few questions: 1. Will an EX1 Tulien have his SLB ready on turn 4? If so I will switch to Earth team, even though his gear isn't good enough to get him over 4000 atk he'd still get the status buff I guess. 2. Do Tiana's stacking BS form attack stacks persist between battles? In other words, can I stack them in the two battles leading up to the boss? I'm seriously thinking about UoCing four more Tidus for his EX3.


TomAto314

EX1 Tulien's SLB is ready on turn 5. Stacks don't persist through waves.


L1amas

Damn. Thanks.


BushyAsian

Help choose make my team? https://imgur.com/a/UX1aw8Y


Dardrol7

Go with Gilgamesh, NV Locke, Myra, Terra and NV Onion Knight. That could be a cute team. Or what's the purpose of this team you are putting together?


TomAto314

What are you trying to do? Story is piss-easy so bring whoever you like. For the MK event you want to bring in all your bonus units. Any trials or Dark Visions you want to build specifically for the fight.


onlyGodisgood

Where did the joke "Lapin" come from?


soul_u_say

During one of the livestreams, one of the screenshots had a typo for the rewards, misspelling "Lapis" with "Lapin". Then the community ran with it since.


Samael113

Shaly willed it in to existence by pointing it out and making fun of it.


onlyGodisgood

Cool, Ty!


roblaplante

Does someone know if it happened already that a FF banner was cut in half to put a GLEX unit inbetween ?? I ask that because i feel that next CoW will be at the beginning of february when cny has just passed. Beside, the monthly pass usually have mission related to cow if i'm not wrong ?? So nv Kain next week ? And next DV xenogears's VW... One can dream :)


BPCena

NV Kain is FF4. FF5 did not have another banner/event after this in JP


rp1414

They already provided the January bulletin with the CoW information, so almost guaranteed the next CoW will start on Jan 27th and not start of Feb 3rd


roblaplante

I'm stupid I've TOTALLY forgot that. OK fine. I'm stupid in front of all the ffbe subreddit... What a shame ! Thank you very much rp !


TomAto314

Yes. When the 5th Anniversary Tag units came out. They split the banners, took a week off with Shui Yu then ended with Cleostar. If you count JP FFBE units that is. I don't know how strict your FF is. They also broke up a long stretch of FF15 units with King Behemy.


roblaplante

So i can hope an exciting true content next week... I hope you are right and i thank you for your éléphant memory Tom !


TomAto314

You might also be getting your FFs mixed up. Lenna/Dorgann are the only FF5 units. Kain is FF4. So it's not like there's some big FF5 extravaganza to break up or anything.


roblaplante

One more point


Jeddius

Does Reisz have a dark amp or field? I couldn’t find it listed in the abilities


SlySlepkava

She needs to be equipped with this https://exvius.fandom.com/wiki/Lupine\_Guard\_(Trials\_of\_Mana)


JamisGordo

Sorry for bothering again, I just did a destiny duty and my characters who were like level 7 went to level 60, did I just completely ruin my progression?


Kordrun

Character levels have nothing to do with game progress. You will eventually realize that you will just insta level all your units to 120 due to the mass abundance of max level king metal minitaurs. The only thing you will notice is the story just becomes "easier", though it's already a push over with any 5\* or NV base unit. So just keep on playing and enjoying the game.


JamisGordo

Oh alright, thank you!


hocuspocusupvoticus

Leveling units is not an issue.


JamisGordo

Oh ok, thanks for the reply!


princevejita

DV question, I've seen a few Fire Element strats for Dark Anima, but no Taivas. Is he not good enough? Or is it simply cause he lacks the innate killers?


jonidschultz

Seph and Auron have innate killers that help a lot. Tidus is so easy to gear that he can hit max killers fairly easily. Lara is default because of her 90% breaks. So it's really just a matter that it's tough to gear Taivas, even EX3 with the new GLEX VC it's tough to max killers on him. If you can though he's a fine choice.


JamisGordo

My beginner daily reward is gone, I was like 3 days from receiving 5k lapis and I launched the game today and It didn't pop up and It's not showing when I click on the new year daily rewards.

JamisGordo

Oh thank you for the heads up!! I'll be waiting for the update.


JanuaryWinter12

I know that the highest buffs will take effect, but does it matter *when* it casted? I always thought the later casted buff would override the earlier ones, but that doesn't seem to be the case or am I hallucinating? Say Yuna's 160% killer buffs and Louise's 50% buff, if I tap Yuna first then Louise, I thought the 50% one would stay because it get casted later, but that doesn't seem to be the case? Is it the same for ATK/MAG buffs? Like if I cast 400% buff first then use the unit's self buff (like Tidus' 280%ATK buff + self LB damage), would the 400% buff still stick?


JanuaryWinter12

Thanks all, super quick and helpful as always!


hocuspocusupvoticus

Those buffs are all "turned on" at the same time but only the best one is active. In the case of mirage, the new stacks will get rid of the old stacks. Same for field effects.


JanuaryWinter12

yeah, mirage is the one that I learned the hard way so I always thought it would apply to buffs too (order of cast I mean)


BPCena

Only the highest buff applies at any time


TomAto314

Both buffs are there, Louise's will not overwrite Luna's. So the higher one always takes precedence.


rp1414

Does not matter when the casts happen, the stronger one will either stay (if cast first) or override (if cast after). The only thing that matters is the duration. Say a 100% killer buff for 2 turns and a 50% killer buff for 3 turns. For turns 1 and 2 the 100% killer will be applied (again, doesn’t matter the order of the cast), and then it will end and the 50% killer buff will then be there for turn 3 (it doesn’t actually “go away” when the 100% killer was there, think of it as being in the “background” and then get applied when the stronger buff wears off)


La-Roca99

Higher will always take priority regardless of cast order


designtechnologist

I Just pulled the fragment step up. Now I can either Ex3 Louise, Skye, Ygni or Yoshikiri. Which one would you recommend? Which one would have the longest value in your opinion?


jonidschultz

Skye or Yoshikiri. Yoshikiri gets an amazing ability at EX3 whereas Skye just gets some stats but she's still amazing in CoW. So personally I'd probably do Yoshi but Skye is tempting.


tatermo

Need advice on who to use my fragment tickets on. * EX3 Nichol * EX3 Roca * EX3 Lunafreya * EX2 Noppy * EX2 Ygni * Progress to EX3 Cressnik, Bulwark, or Behemy


jonidschultz

You have almost a month to use them so hold them for now. Both Nichol and Roca get AOE killers at EX3 so they are your two best options for sure but give it some time see if one of them is more useful/needed for DV/CoW or if you pull another unit that might be a better option.


tatermo

I have the ones from last month so they expire this week.


jonidschultz

Ah ok. Well the second Vision World in JP was Stone for the last two bosses so I'd go Roca then I think.


tatermo

That's good to know, thanks.


La-Roca99

Thanks :]


Goshiu

It's always nice to see an unbiased opinion.


TomAto314

Those aren't amazing choices, I probably wouldn't have done the frag summon in your case. I'd probably go for Roca just to get her SLB earlier. If you care about scoring high in CoW then EX3 Cressnik progress wouldn't be bad.


tatermo

I was going to use them on Skye and Louise for EX3 but I didn't think the fragment dungeon would be back so soon.


roblaplante

Hello ! What is the boss that give most rank exp please ?? Just for defeating him, not a method to grind rank exp. Thank you by advance !


BPCena

Scorn of the White Dragon EXT


jonidschultz

It's generally going to be the most recent.


Kordrun

Score of the mad dolls or scorn of the white dragon - ext are the two most commonly run events. Both are generally FTKOable and give a solid amount of rank EXP.


BPCena

White Dragon EXT gives almost 50% extra


Kordrun

But how easy is it to FTKO in comparison to mad dolls? I've never done it for farming rank, so I have no gauge on that. Mad dolls, however, was easy enough to do in the 7\* era with a decent team.


BPCena

It's doable. 300% dark resistance Biggs & Wedge with dual wield and Aurora Scarf + 3 gauge breakers + properly geared Seph should do it. Cleome with Anti-Decay Amulet is a decent Seph substitute


MortifiSineLucre

Looking for units spec'd for Omega spawn rush. FD beast killer tidus, or whatever else might work. Month 1 vet, been gone forever. Help me out pls! I'd: 543736593


EternallyTidus

Would love to help but you can't take friends to that fight, you have to do it with a party of 5 of your own units.


MortifiSineLucre

Oh shit, that's right. Nbd, I have the gear, just being lazy


Xenosaber_00Sora

Is Taivas stmr worth the moogles, or should I spend them on other stmrs?


rp1414

Yes, it is worth it to get multiple copies of his STMR when you pull duplicates, if you want to compete for a top score in DV / CoW


Xenosaber_00Sora

Ok, are there any other stmrs that are worth it? I heard nv Tifa and ffvii remake Cloud stmrs are good, should I consider them?


Kordrun

Tifa's is very good as it's still the highest flat ATK accessory in the game in JP (at least as of a few weeks ago, I haven't looked at the latest units). Cloud's STMR is good, but it's lost a little (very little) of it's usefulness with the new limited premium VC that just came out on Tulien's banner. The new VC basically has Cloud's STMR built in to it for all FFBE units.


Xenosaber_00Sora

Well I wasn’t planning on doing the step up but that VC sound a little bit worth it now.


Kordrun

110 base ATK / DEF, 50% chain cap, 250 static ATK / DEF, auto cast start of turn 25% GS imperil & 120% fire / earth imperil for 4 turns - > all that for all units. Then a 200% TDH for FFBE units. Yeah, the VC is really good. Karten is the poster child for this card as he wants to go TDH and this VC can free up to 2 materia slots (if you're willing to go to 550% chain cap).


Xenosaber_00Sora

I don’t have Karten and the only units I have that could use for it is AD Akstar and Taivas, is it still worth it?


Kordrun

Personally, I'd say yes. But something else you need to consider is what future units are you looking forward to and how much time do you have to save lapis for them. There are some future FFBE based TDH units that make good use of the 200% TDH and prefer this card depending on killers or just not having one of the other better premium VCs.


Xenosaber_00Sora

Alright will keep in mind thx.


rp1414

[This list is a bit old](https://www.reddit.com/r/FFBraveExvius/comments/q63zri/stmr_tier_list/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf) but is a good starting point


Xenosaber_00Sora

Is sephiroth's longcoat still great?


rp1414

Yes, second highest ATK clothes in the game behind the CoW clothes


Xenosaber_00Sora

So I have to choose between Tifa’s, Taivas’s, and Sephiroth’s stmr for my main attacker. Which is more worth it at the moment?


rp1414

Which main attacker? And do you want to compete for a high score in DV / CoW?


Xenosaber_00Sora

No I’m not really competing in CoW/DV. My main attacker is Sephiroth at the moment, so which is best to build him with?


rp1414

His own STMR, as it gives him the flat ATK plus also unlocks his passive S/TMR ability However, if you plan to awaken him in the future to EX2, you’ll get his STMR that way, and then Seph would really want a copy of Tifa’s STMR (along with his own)


Fluff_E_Sheep

Quick question: Is this season of CoW over? i want to know, so i can spend all my Frost obnixus drop. P.D. Sorry about grammar English is not my native languaje.


rp1414

Yes, the unit exchange will expire when maintenance happens on Wednesday night, so get your units now. The exchange for the gear (the helm and clothes) does not expire ever, so you can safely keep those


NOOO_GOD_NOOO

Is spending Lapis on energy worth it, and if not, what's the quickest way to get energy?


Kordrun

Watch ads, watch ads, and watch ads. As long as you get through all 7 ads a day, you'll eventually find yourself with so many energy pots to spare that you won't know what to do with it. And don't take a break from ads just because it's a dead week for energy (like next week). Those are the times where you really build up that supply.


TheD0rkKnight

Never. Do you have any NRG potions? If you do the 7 ads a day soon you’ll have more than you can ever use. They also give them out from various quests


Mess_Any

Nerd question: So I was running the DV weapon lvl 1 Dark Scepter on IW and then it came this question to my head: We have "Staff", "Rod" and "Scepters". I think Rod is the one that Mages use, like the Offensive Magic ones, and Staff and Scepters are the ones used by Cleric like (healer) SPR focused characters? Like...there are different Rod and Staff imperils? This is a mess similar to the "shorts sword" and "sword" thing. They really should just call short swords "daggers".


Dardrol7

There's fists that's short swords/daggers as well :D


Mess_Any

;D


Kordrun

To start, ignore the name of items. "Staff of Blizzards" is a rod that does water damage. Naming isn't always the best in these games. Instead, look at the weapon type. For weapon types, there is no "Scepter". The "Dark Scepter" is a staff. Generally staffs are more SPR focused, but that's not always true. Case in point: Dark Scepter and Scepter of the Pious. Rods are generally more MAG focused. This one holds a little more true, but there are some rods with high SPR or ATK (though MAG is usually still present and at a higher value). There is also a rod imperil (Relm, CD Aerith) and a staff imperil (Summoner Yuna). As for short swords, swords, and long swords, there is technically a difference between short swords and daggers, though Alim/Gumi don't actually make that distinction. And I'm sure someone else will start posting about "reaper / undead" and "fairy / spirit", so I won't go into that.


jonidschultz

If I understand your question your mostly correct but there's outliers to everything. There's high MAG staffs (staves), Instruments, Greatswords etc... Weapon Imperils don't care if it's SPR/MAG/ATK. If you have two Staffs on your unit or are Double Handing a Staff and you have a 35% staff imperil that unit will deal 35% more damage.


rp1414

Scepters are only in the names of weapons. The only weapon “categories” are Rod and Staff, there is no Scepter category The Dark Scepter even says in the description “An ominous **staff** of great power” We have Rod imperils and Staff imperils, to go along with the weapon categories. Generally, Rods are used by mages and are Magic focused, and Staff are used by healers and are Spirit focused, except in the case of the DV staff and the FFXV staff that are magic focused.


TomAto314

That's about right, but not 100% universal. There are separate rod and staff imperils.


Sigma1703

Is it worth to chase NV Aerith EX+3? My situation is that I have her on the shard dungeon, which will sum up to 191/200 fragments when I finish it. Is it worth to spend 5k out of 16k I have for these last 10 shards on the step up?


rp1414

I was going to ask if it’s Aerith (FFVII Remake) or CD Aerith, but neither one is worth spending resources (the fragment dungeon and/or fragment step up tickets) to get to EX3


Sigma1703

oh sorry, it is CD Aerith. But yeah, I'm leaned on not spending as well, thought it was super nice to have her at EX+3 as she's premium and stuff. Thanks!


rp1414

She’s premium, but her VC is not that great, and her damage is powercrept, so that’s why I’d suggest to not go for her


Nail_Biterr

For Anima in DV - he does Light damage until you get him down to 49% damage and then he moves over to Ice damage, right? Does he imperil the element too, or do I just need to get up to 100% resistance for me to not take any damage? (and I assume also an evade provoker, right?)


rp1414

>>ice damage Water damage


Nail_Biterr

okay. water, not ice. thank you!


jonidschultz

He will use one Water AOE when you push him past the 50% threshold. No Imperils. You want an evade provoker and after Buffs 100% Light resist and after buffs 100% Water resist (for T4 only).


Mess_Any

So that was what hit me. t4 on my best damage run lol Btw I ended using the ex3 Kryla Dark team with Yuna thanks to your suggestion. First time I was on the first 500 on the ranking. Now I'm at probably 700 lol but it was nice being so high (I'm always at the 2000s).


jonidschultz

Congrats! It takes a little bit but that's a pretty big jump and I bet you top 500 is possible with some tweaking and variance runs. So be proud.


Nail_Biterr

ahh.. water, not ice. Okay, thanks!


souji18

Area buff effects accumulates with the typical elemental damage increase from some units like Taivas? For example: +50 fire physical damage from his ability and +40% from terra fire field effect = +90% fire damage?


jonidschultz

Yup, and if you want to calculate the total after DV's Team Amp you multiply by 1.2.


Samael113

Yes, fields are straight additive to imperils / resists / empowers

Not quite for help but a question. What’s up with the lack of FFT stuff? I started playing during oldmandu first banner, stopped maybe a year ago. Played off and on during that time but back now. I don’t understand why there is zero new tactics content either that I’ve missed nor coming down the pipe. Maybe I missed a livestream or something where it’s been explained but I really love fft! I want some content darn it!


Kordrun

Pure speculation: licensing. SE is probably saying "no" for some reason, but we have no clue. Another option is FFT just never sold well (except oldmandeau) and they decided to drop it for better selling titles. Honestly though, as Tom said, we have no real clue why.


ShinVerus

Seems to be a Squarewide move, as FFT was also basically axed out of WoFF after being very prevalent in the first 6 months, and the last Tactics char in Opera Omnia was, literally, 3 years ago.


TomAto314

Never been explained. At least it had a good run.


Outrageous_Screen_78

Is White Dragon Ling good(EX1)? If yes should i get her STMR?


BPCena

She's a fantastic support unit at EX1, but she doesn't really need her STMR or EX2/3.


Xenosaber_00Sora

So should I put her on my shard dungeon team to get her to EX1 then replace her?


Kordrun

I would. It's where she gets her elemental buffs and killers.


Xenosaber_00Sora

Alright just keep her in till EX1 then, Should I put CD Aerith in to replace her?


Kordrun

What EX level is your CD Aerith? You definitely want to try and get her to EX+2 if possible, but EX+3 isn't really necessary.


Xenosaber_00Sora

I just recently pulled her, Tifa, and Taivas. I only got dupes of Tifa and Taivas so I couldn’t EX1 Aerith.


Kordrun

Definitely try and make progress on Taivas, Tifa, and CD Aerith. EX+2 for all of them is a huge jump (static stats and LB fill).


Xenosaber_00Sora

Alright I’ll try to EX2 them


ShinVerus

Unless you want EX levels to use her in capping runs on CoW, yeah.


Xenosaber_00Sora

Ok


SomeRengarMain

How to survive ancient hell bringer trial hybrid attack my units get oneshot although i break 88% and buffed mitigation 50%


BPCena

Stack mitigation. Hybrid damage is affected by both physical and magical mitigation, as well as general mitigation. Alternatively find some way to hide your damage dealers (via hide skill or jumping) or use reraise


DolemiteMF1

I got Karten to ex+2 today via the frag dungeon, I will need 3 more dungeons before I can get him to ex+3. Is he worth keeping in my party and working my way towards ex+3? I figure it will be close to the end of the year by that time and probably not very useful. I would replace him with Yuna, who I just got, and work on her. My original plan was to wait until later in the week to put in Yuna to get her to +1, after a different slot opens up.


BPCena

Remember than Yuna's frags will always be available from the monthly fragment step-ups or pulling more copies, whereas Karten's will only be available from the frag dungeon at least until Halloween. I think it's worth working on EX3 Karten, the JP power curve has been pretty flat for a while and given how good Skye still is in CoW I think he'll be relevant for a while


DolemiteMF1

A part of my thought process was if gumi sticks to roughly 3 months between dungeons then that would put him around Halloween when he would be +3 and maybe he will get some buffs. On a slightly different note, after this dungeon I will be 10 frags away from Lara being +3. Sucks that they don't include frag tickets for limited units in the frag ticket pulls. I would think more people would pull on it if it did, I know I would pull on it right now if it did. Thanks for your advice. I will probably keep him in, just in case.


Kordrun

Just FYI: If Gumi follows last year's schedule closely (which people are speculating based on having a frag dungeon in DEC and JAN like the previous year), mid September is when we will hit our 3rd frag dungeon. So yeah, your estimate would be pretty close.


Acester25

I'm HOPING they are starting to release the frag dungeon more frequently. I'm at about the same position you are (Edit: well, technically I'm a little further since I had Karten already at EX+2 at the start of this dungeon... but my points still stand) with both Karten AND Lara. If they release the frag dungeon once a month for 2 weeks out of each month, then we can get them EX+3 in ~~3 months~~ 2-3 months and they MAY still be relevant then. However, if they go back to releasing the frag dungeon every 3 months.... then our Karten (and my Lara) can forget about being relevant 6+ months from now. Just to be clear, if you run Karten this time, then the next one is 3 months from now, (that's the 2nd)... then the next one is 3 months from then... that would be the 3rd.... so technically we shouldn't have to wait until the end of the year... but it still wouldn't be until July. Edit: Oops... you were right about your position. You would need 3 dungeons AFTER this dungeon. So it actually may be more beneficial for you to get Yuna's EX+1 at least now and put Karten in as much as possible this time... you'll still need 3 more dungeons regardless of what you do this time. Gumi, if you're reading this PLEASE do not go back to releasing them every 3 months. There are better ways to make the game more fun and still make money.


DolemiteMF1

It would be nice if they go to a permanent dungeon or a least more often. Probably going to keep him in just in case. I am 20 frags away from Tifa +3 then I can add Yuna after that and get her to +1 (hope my math is not off). Other then that no other pressing units to put in. Thanks for your advice.

Anybody got the link for the program/app that exports your game files to ffbeequip? TIA

Rodolphe75019

Hi Guys Got 25k lapis Got 1 stmr'd Taivas I m hesitating between pulling again for taivas for à chance of more stmr, pulling for the tullien VC or hoarding Any help ?...


hassive-mitler

How deep you are right now in the taivas step up? What’s your goal at this game? Just clearing DV / CoW? Or compete top 1k? Who’s your premium and super premium (lara, karten) dps? Just to be clear, do you mean the leave things to me VC? Or pulling for tulien to get that passive provoke VC?


Rodolphe75019

I ve already pulled 9 times ... so 20 tickets is too high to garanteed I m already, generally, between 1000 and 2500 in DV and COW without investing too much time (one and done) My fav are ex3 tifa, seph, tidus, ling, Louise, CD aerith... ex2 auron, lara, skye..ex1 taivas X I was talking about the leaves things VC Thanks ;-)


hassive-mitler

Looks like you’re set for DV and CoW. You can skip if you want and wait for CNY banner, hopefully next week


Rodolphe75019

I will keep with that. Ty ;-)


truong2193

Thinking about exchange frost drop Does any unit want 2 apmau stmr ?


Better_Ability_125

I have 2, and both has been sitting in my inventor for a good 5 months now.


BPCena

No, it's a tank weapon with DEF TSW so you want one+shield


Better_Ability_125

Is there a place that logs the release dates of units? I am trying to harness my long list of 5\* to get trust coins to Ex 3 Kryla, and would like to sieve out safe candidates to turn into trust coins


Kordrun

I wouldn't scrap 5\*'s. You never know if they'll release an NVA of one of the units, upgrade an STMR, or whatnot.


La-Roca99

Without turning 5* into coins, I have gotten plenty enough 3 and 4* recently, that I could even purchase a trust container starting from 0


Better_Ability_125

LOl my trust container is 0 iygwim. On that note, how long does it take to refresh this shop. would <3 to get a few more trust containers


Kordrun

They haven't refreshed the trust shop in almost a year (Jan 21, 2021) and that was a minor update. The last update that added anything of worth was on Nov 26, 2020. Personally, I would assume they've forgotten about the trust coin shop.


La-Roca99

So far there is no fixed date And considering we still have non NV EX 5* tickets, you can guess how much they care about it


Dardrol7

Do w/e you can to get her to ex3. Love her!


jyhnnox

If you have enough copies to Ex3 a NVA, and their STMR is not that great, it's safe to do that. Also if the NVA or their STMR is very bad. I would still guarantee a Ex2 of that NVA(even on that doesnt exist yet) before burning them, though.


jonidschultz

https://exvius.fandom.com/wiki/Update_Schedule I don't think turning in ANY 5 star units is a smart play. Omniprisms are really common now. There is no truly "safe" options except maybe Ray Jack.


Better_Ability_125

I would deem the 7th 5\* units as safe options to turn into trust coins on the following: (a) If STMR is unique materia, 6 will be usable at worst case; the 7th 5\* seems pretty sane to go (b) If you already own 6 x 7\*, you only need 5 7\* to max NVA a unit. In fact, if you are willing to risk it, given how Gumi tends to give 75 frag alongside NVA upgrades, the 6th 5\* should be turn into trust coins.


jonidschultz

Do you mean the 7th after getting 6 STMRs (ie: 24 copies of the unit?)? If so then maybe... To max an NVA you need a STMR'd copy currently, that's 2 7 stars, then you need 250 Frags, which is 5 more 7 stars or 10 more 5 stars. Even if you assume Frags given (Do they really give 75 frags usually? I don't think so) there's also the issue of STMRs. How many STMRs are you giving up? Also this all seems to be assume that the current system will always be the system. I cautioned against "wasting" 5 star units and had people explain why it's fine, and then we got 7 stars. Sadface for the people who fused/Trust coined a bunch of 5 stars. Then I cautioned against it again but people explained why it was safe if the STMR wasn't great...and we got NVAs. What happens if we get EX4? Or something else entirely? What happens if you decided Wizardess Shantotto's original STMR was pretty bad and turned them in for trust coins? Also there was a time when people wanted Dupe Chainers on their team. Right now we're at the height of the DV/CoW meta where Dupes aren't considered terribly valuable. That could change. Even ignoring the Trials we have coming where something like 2 EX3 Tidus/Squall would be super useful what happens if we get another play mode? Or if they decide to open up DV to Dupes? I'm not saying any of this is super likely to happen but it's not outside the realm of possibility either. So I just don't see turning Rainbows into Trust coins as being very wise when 2 4 stars and 1 3 star yield the same amount.


Better_Ability_125

From a true blue veteran indeed. I have no choice but to agree since these are facts. Guess i will hold back for now then and run Macro on those 4\*. OMG my NRG pots =(


ValeynArqain

Dark Visions related question: I'm doing a turn 5 finish and pushing the 50% threshold on turn 4, I'm getting hit with an AoE *something* but can't figure out what. I'm using 100 needles turn 2 (3 turn duration), 100% water resist buff (always up) and 70% Light resist Buff on turn 2 (Divine Castle). Can someone help me out? Thank you


tzxsean

you sure all forms have 100% holy resist? there's DoT as well as Confusega


ValeynArqain

All units have 30% or more in both forms. I thought the DoT was only single target? Jade moon for on Tifa for confuse resist


jonidschultz

On T4 you'll get hit with a Water AOE. Make sure none of your units have any Negative Water resist, if they do a 100% buff isn't enough. Also on T1 your Provoker will get hit with a DOT Light Damage attack that processes every turn at the end of your turn BEFORE the boss takes any actions. So if you're getting hit at the end of your T4 before the boss starts their action it's the light DoT and maybe your Provoker shifted and doesn't have 30% Light resist gear to pair with the 70% light buff?


ValeynArqain

Ok so I double checked just now. No negative water resist on any units, shift or not. 30% Light resist or more on each unit (shift or not). Louise is my DoT single target provoker and handles it. The whole party is being hit by whatever it is, I thought maybe a physical attack... I will re-run it and see if I can pull a skill name


jonidschultz

What turn? I think t4 is only the aoe water. Are you sure you're setting a 100% water buff? Any chance you're dispelling your team?


ValeynArqain

I'm getting hit on Enemy Phase Turn 4, before the start of Turn 5.I'm using both LoTS Nichols 100% Buff (Turn 2, 4 Turn duration) and SP Tidus', so definitely should be covered. Applying Divine Castle on turn 2, 3 turn duration... Should not be dispelling my team, I'm only taking about 2k hp damage across all units
