Should I worry about reforging my good weapons or wait?

Reforged 4*s are decent weapons and armor with synergy. Worthwhile if you have something for a realm without a lot of natural 5*s and 6*s. The 4* pool is a god damn mess, though, outside of XII.

It's pretty expensive in terms of Greens for Dark Matter and gil, though. I'd likely hold off buying more and focus on being able to get the dark matter we get in event rewards.

So I feel like I have to be close to the end of the realm dungeons on Classic difficulty. I'm for sure in the middle of the end dungeons of V and VI, finished Midgar in VII, Lunatic Pandora in VIII, halfway through Eureka in III...

There are lots of early elites easier than later classics.

At least there used to be, they reworked the whole thing a while ago.

Be glad, Lunar Subterrain used to be like 6 stages long followed by a very hard boss like Ogopogo.

Yeah I bounce into the Elites a lot, especially for Memory Crystals. I just did a Type-0 one to get Deuce's Crystal II

This is why they started adding second and third-string stages for After Years and Dirge of Cerberus and crap. None of the games so far have actually reached The End in the Realm dungeons, and I don't think they ever will until the game officially shuts down.

Oh yeah, the recent TAY stages thing was funny. "Look, here's two stages of one battle each! Isn't that hardcore?"

I think at some point they'll start up realm final bosses, though I think Chaos is the only one in the game so far (Zermous from last fest is a pretty different gimmick fight and also uses that weird sprite from the JP easy mode).

Wouldn't surprise me at all if we see them in the next few months in JP. Add a third difficulty level in line with the current end game for just these fights, maybe even hand out rubies. They announced two new abilities at 6* today so another source of rubies is going to be needed soon.

So I was leveling Vanille as a healer but with Garnet and Deuce having good relics I benched Vanille at 80.

Okay, this IX pull is a bit more like it

IX - Kain's Lance - Dragoon's Storm USB - Freya
IX - Silver Knife - Angel's Banquet BSB - Quina
IX - Hamelin - Prayer of the Lost BSB - Eiko

Edit to add in this from the daily

VIII - Ulysses - Canister Shot SB - Invine

(Also I did some maths, I'm about 53.8% done with Realm Dungeons according to the numbers listed on each door. FFV is the one with the most stages!

Most nightmares can be brute forced with a RW these days. Hell half were brute forcible back when they released, usually because they seemed to forget Ninja, Summoners and Dancers were things that exist.

So I found out I've been looking at the Mote dungeons in entirely the wrong way. I thought I could just brute force with my normal team. Nope, need to actually focus on the elemental stuff. I was probably warned about this on one of the screens I skipped. Maybe a few Tornado Strikes for Bartz and Squall will be a good start for today.

Just to be sure: please don't make tornado strike. It's a marginal 2 hit AoE.

What you want is Raging Quadstrike.

It was the game that suggested Tornado Strike, sadly I did make them but also made Raging Quadstrike.

However I was unsuccessful at beating Lich and the date changed on me, so now I have limited Dark attacks for the current Red Dragon.

I did see that one of Cloud's sphere skills unlocks 5* Spellblades which would probably help a ton with Lich since I have that LM for him.
