Lightning's ultra is absolutely absurdly good and works even better with her LRM. Lifesiphon -> USB -> Spam Thundering Twinstrike is going to be fantastic DPS with a 25% doublecast.

If you just use lightning abilities it's basically TGCOSB but trading the high initial damage for enlightning and a higher damage cap on recasts.

I'm not saying it's bad but I already have Kain's Burst, TGCid's OSB, and Ashe's OSB + BSB so I'm pretty set on lightning damage. Adding Lightning with that stuff on top of my physical team might let me clear Bismarck in sub-30 seconds though, maybe.

Anyone pulling on today's healing burst Lucky Draw? Normally I love a half-price banner, but I'm sitting this one out as I've got healing pretty much covered.

Not me. I've got several healing bursts and a fully dived Y'shtola so the only reason I'd want more is for specific buffs.

I had 7/18 relics, but pulled anyway in hopes of getting a little more realm coverage. I had a thought that "I hope this pull doesn't go too well, want to save some luck for the next lucky draws" ... then pulled a 1/11 dupe of Aerith BSB.

I got Larsa and Penelo's bursts, both ones I don't have and both fantastic bursts. I would have preferred to get Yuna's BSB2, but these are both fine additions.

Shame it's 2 for the same realm, though. But at least now I do have a medica burst for it.

Note that we expect the remaining five fest lucky draws (Always Lucky 2: BSB, USB, CSB; Always Lucky 3: 6*; Lucky 30 pull; Gem Only Selection; Crystal Tower Selection) should all induce the new VI relics. Anyone else looking to pull on this event may want to hold off.

I've got all the winners except maybe Iris (Y'Sholta and Larsa) and Sarah (Rosa and Selphie SSBs) and I went a bit overboard pulling on the Rosa/Edge banner, so no.

So if you use Shadow's SSB to get 2 charges of blink, does that count as Mirror Image and it's just a case of inconsistent translation on the SSB? If so that means you'd be pretty decently set for dark damage with just his LRM and that SSB. I might end up pulling on this banner in the end for Shadow stuff. He's probably my best potential for dark damage currently... my other options are Gabranth's EnDark SSB, Leon's BSB (which is more of a Darkness Knight thing than DPS), and Nabaat's BSB.

P. Blink is P. Blink, dosn't matter where it comes from.

Most sources won't stack, except the two ninja skills which apply a 15 second buff allowing you to stack up to two blinks. But if it comes with two like shadow's SSB it gets you two, you'd just need that buff to stack a second one back on if the first is eaten.

The Darkness school is going to get it's first good physical ability soon and the ability buff is very good to the school (Dwindling Spirit, Necrofear and Countdown are all still pretty bad after it).

They sure do. My BSB+ pull got me Shadow's Ultra, Dagger's Dagger, and Dagger's Staff.

Also anyone looking for something to save their mythril for: 3rd anniversary banner 1 introduces Tyro USB3: Proshellga, Haste, Wall.

It's also utterly insane and likely won't make it to global intact aside from that (OK, Tyro, Ramxa LRMs, Ramza BS2 [super shout]). But new relics never change so...

1/11: Celes OSB

Nice to have, but it does nothing to help my elemental coverage; I'm drowning in holy and wind stuff.

This game wants me to have better Wind options finally: Fang and Cloud OSB. Now I have even more reason to go ham on Banner 3!

Well, the datamined 30 pull banner had everything until the last FFV event, so I went ahead and did my single pull on Shadow/Setzer. Only one bad relic (Umaro LRM) and one dupe (Shadow SSB).

Shadow USB/11.

Well, hell. Shadow's better than Edge as a ninja, but I already spent the motes/orbs on Edge, and while the orbs I can farm up the Brv/Dex motes are a real bottleneck. Especially since I've got 100 bravery motes with Shelkie's name on them.

Was hoping for any of Setzer's excellent relics or Umaro's absurd BSB, first keeper problems I know.

Also after discussion on discord with various people who pulled Yuffie USB I went ahead and tried liquid flame without a healer, using Yuffie USB and spot curada on OK.


Better gear (I'm doing two pulls on banner 4 and it has three +Water 6*s and Tidus USB), magicite or execution should get this to sub 30.

So now I also don't know what BSB to take from the Gem Only banner, since it looks like I don't need Edge BSB for enwater anymore (and the new setup likely can't entrust him two bars quickly enough, maybe once we get Shelkie LM).

6/30: Tidus OSB, Amarant BSB, Seymour SSB Nine BSB, Ingus SSB, Leila SSB. No dupes, and finally some water damage!

And then I 100-gem'd Emperor's BSB from Banner 1. Magic wind damage!

I ain't mad.

6/30 here, myself. Beatrix OSB, Fang OSB, Seifer BSB, Serah BSB, Edward BSB, and Echo SSB. No dupes, and even a bunch of really good items.

And then I 100 gem'd the fest banner and got Onion Gauntlets. Man, I'm just on a roll here.

P.Cecil OSB, D.Cecil BSB, Arc BSB. Dupe Dagger of Resolve and Veil of Wiyu.

Then I 100 gemmed Ignus BSB (also a dupe).

Not bad. Dagger is now augmented and reforged. Wish the 100 gem was Desch BSB, that would give me every BSB from III.

Tidus OSB
Noctis OSB
Papalymo OSB
Noel BSB
Beatrix BSB
Zeid BSB
Snow SSB
Vincent SSB

Daaamn. Not bad. I really don't care about Noctis, but if I pulled somewhat heavy on Banner 5 I bet he would be nuts. Liquid Flame should be dead now and I have even more incentive for Banner 4 to stack Tidus. I want to do an 11 pull on Banner 1, but only allowing myself one pull, I would be supremely disappointed to get dupes (OK armor and gloves). I might just wait for the Gem only pull and pick Maria's Burst, that's the thing I really want from Banner 1.

I'm passing on Banner 2 after all. The JP one was good, but now I have 3 dupes (including one I absolutely don't need cause I have a reforged Rydia's Whip) and it's got 3 WHM bursts I don't need. Guess I'm saving everything for Cloud and Squall pulls.
