Meanwhile, I've spent far too much time mucking with Imgur today trying to get it to get images in order so I'll just link this here.

Hey guess what it gets better

Ps I don't know how you do the thing to make the images smaller.

You can use the TT thumb flag or add s m l h to the end of file name in the URL, which gets you a small, medium, large, huge resize with imgur. Huge is 1-1.

Hey guess what.



That's 3/5, and all three in 30 sec or less. I basically farmed the Vit Motes with every bit of Stamina I had, so that's pretty nice.

I think I could do better on this one with a little tweaking. I might consider swapping L82 Celes with L93 Zack. Unless I can use my own casts to make Celes regain ability usage for Spellblades.

You know I honestly don't know if that works and I'm in retrospect shocked that that's the case...

It doesn't seem to work.

Lich is certainly harder for me to sub 30 on. It's doable but very easy to mess up.

I thought the whole reason Runic ever worked in this was it didn't eat your own spells, otherwise it'd be just as impossible to use as in 6.

Anyways, please don't spend resources making your mote teams better, if you can sub 30 it you're good on them forever and should move on to beating the Nightmare bosses.

The main thing with Lich and if I'll sub 30 is what skill Bartz procs when he Spellblades. If I go too many turns then Celes and Cloud run out of Wind skills.

In general the best step I took was replacing Deuce and someone else with Elarra and Ramza. I thought Deuce's buff would be better than Ramza but Haste is much better and Elarra is just awesome.

Dark element still I don't have a great team for, but I have two chains for Earth so...

I didn't farm this one, but I did beat it once, so...

4/5. Tonberry is today. He will go down too.

Couple things here. First, as expected:



And second, all normal realm dungeons down:



All those relic draws around Christmas and Thanksgiving used up a bunch of my Mythril, so I've been ignoring stuff lately. But gosh there's lots of draws all the time.

Well we got our monthly passes and... they're pretty underwhelming.

XP could be fine for a new player if you wanted to do XP dungeons only for 15 days. Note that it's only really a 60% bonus, because if you're that serious about it you're going to have all five 40% XP RMs.

The daily log in bonus ... is so barely relevant to a well established player's needs it's a joke.

Day 1: 3x Major Growth Egg
Day 9: 3x Soul of a Hero
Day 15: 2x Memory Crystal Lode
Day 19: 2x Memory Crystal II Lode
Day 26: 2x Memory Crystal III Lode

I already have everyone at 99 and thousands of eggs.

Day 2: 5x Giant Adamantite
Day 3: 5x Giant Scarletite
Day 30: 2x 5* Dark Matter

I already have >3000 of both mats and 80 dark matter.

Day 4: 2x Major Ice Orb
Day 5: 2x Major Fire Orb
Day 6: 2x Major Dark Orb
Day 10: 2x Major Holy Orb
Day 11: 2x Major Wind Orb
Day 12: 2x Major Non-Elm Orb
Day 16: 2x Major Earth Orb
Day 17: 2x Major Lightning Orb
Day 18: 2x Major WhiteOrb
Day 22: 2x Major Black Orb
Day 23: 2x Major Power Orb
Day 29: 2x Major Summon Orb

I maybe need dark orbs. That's it.

Day 7: 10x 4* Spirit Mote
Day 13: 10x 4* Dexterity Mote
Day 24: 10x 4* Bravery Mote
Day 27: 10x 4* Wisdom Mote
Day 20: 10x 4* Vitality Mote

Vit motes are the only ones that matter to me. This is over half a year for another Berserker sphere, though. In half a year I might have enough motes to just 4* dive everyone from event rewards.

Day 8: 10x 5* Spirit Mote
Day 25: 10x 5* Bravery Mote
Day 28: 10x 5* Wisdom Mote
Day 21: 10x 5* Vitality Mote
Day 14: 10x 5* Dexterity Mote

In a year, I would end up with 3 extra legend dives. I've projected out mote rewards for 6 months and at that point I will have 107 legend dives, without even getting any more motes from D??? torments. On top of that Vit and Brv motes are becoming very hard to spend in a meaningful way once I get there, really this is closer to 30 motes a month. So not even 2 legend dives a year.

I spend somewhere between $10 and $20 a month on this game. I would happily buy a $5/month pass, but I would need to actually get something tangible in return.

4x Syldra down, think I finally found a consistent strategy on the last kill but fuck if I'm doing 4 more right away to prove it after two nights of grinding these kills.

Adamantoise and Hetawhatever down.

Heta's a bit of a joke, though the phase 3 AI gets pretty mean. RW Heal and have someone on tap for the triple combo during the last few seconds and it's fine.

Adamantoise is the least threatening magicie of all of them, I think. Annoying with confuse and haste removal and takes a ton of wind to kill, but not really dangerous.

Did one pull, got Riku Awakening and GSB (already had his LMR).

Great in my eyes, but everyone in the TT Discord who pulled got something better! Both Awakenings or the better Sora Awakening + a ton of USBs.

I wish I cared about Kingdom Hearts so I could spend my fake money. They all have such cute sprites too! Alas, they are doomed to be forever benched.

(There's no way another KH event will happen before this game shuts down)

I pulled twice - got Riku AASB, then Sora USB/Riku LMRx2.

Previously my only KH char relic was Sora's Ice Glint - would have been nice to get his AASB, but USB/Glint/enelem LM2 is probably enough for him to replace Ayame (BSB/OSB) in my eventual Syldra run. I tested the AASB against Siren last night - it was still outdamaged by TGC USB, but for now I'm chalking that up to a lack of 4* motes to dive Riku. (Some sort of critfix/crit+ combo will help too.)

I will probably skip banner 2, simply because I don't think the relics there are a meaningful step toward working through torments and I can imagine an unpleasant-but-viable path through most of the (many) 5* magicites I haven't fought yet.

There are 2 free 40x draws right now, in case you don't check in often or are taking a break. That's 4 6* items and both my pulls were a bunch of 5* too

Between those and the $5 USB select I got almost an entire D??? Torment team for FFVI. Locke USB2, Sabin USB, Relm LMR.

So Fenrir is kinda a jerk and I'm not really sure how I'm gonna sub 30 him. I already have trouble taking him down as is.

The biggest help has been giving Elarra Hastega as well as Quina's SB. Not doing this has made him pretty impossible.

Sub 30 is really only for bragging rights. You want one at the highest difficulty you can manage on sub 30 for Arcana farming, but otherwise just get your four Fenrirs, Enkidu and... silver dragons? and move on.

Got all the Neo Torments to 50% or better. XI, VIII and Type 0 required some work. Didn’t have to spend any resources at all, which was nice.

Wanted to do them all to 50% before the new rewards, so if I can work out I and Ii I should get them all. They’re two of my worst realms, though.

Alma USB1+2 are as absurdly good here as you'd expect.

VII, XIII and VIII are at 90% - 70% and I could likely get them all if we had the RW heals, since they're single element teams with native CSBs (Wind, Ice and Ice). Chain Blizzaja, Icicle Bullet and Ironfist Ice will also help a lot.

96% on IV, would have had it if I had sequenced Kain’s turns a little better or gotten better Palom RNG.
