    I mean, being a super effective budget unit is sort of the whole point of Garland.

    I went ahead and fused the Bartzes and finished Doublehand. Bartz was already pretty far along when I started to pull better TMR units and I didn't want to get caught in a loop where I kept changing my TMR team and end up not finishing any. It's a decent ability for CoD now but will eventually get replaced by a Dual Wield.

    Current TMRs that I'm working on: Blade Mastery around 30%, Excalibur, Miyuki Katana, and Rising Sun all around 80% and a Black Cowl around 30%. Once I finish the 80% ones I'll put in DW #2, Maxwell and a second Miyuki Katana.

    heh, JP just got a retarded new 5* healer, but it's sort of ok because it's the first time power creep has produced a healer instead of a dps in a long ass time. Oh and it only took me 25k lapis to pull her!

    units/651 - FFBraveExvius

    Basically take Tilith, add Curada (new tier above Curaja), stop immunity, and aoe stop cure. She's the whale version of Tilith.

    Since the event is a one and done, what do you guys want as friend unit? I currently have Noctis, but if people are leveling units do you want Elza instead?

    I think a new farming event is starting up Friday, but for leveling up I love a good Elza friend

    Yeah, and it's the shitty style farming too, where you just want a friend 4-5* banner unit for the currency bonus.

    That new JPN healer seems strong of course, but healer is a role where once you reach "good enough", then any more powerful is superfluous. Wouldn't be sad to pull her, but wouldn't go out of my way for one either.

    I'll probably do 2-3 dailies on the new banner for a currency bonus unit, but if I don't get one, I won't blow more lapis trying.

    For friends to bring while leveling, I prefer a whale unit that has an infinite heal + good aoe. For example, Lightning (auto-refresh, cura, and area blast) is nice, since she can go forever in explorations. Noctis works too, but his aoe is really expensive, and he has to "waste" turns to refill his mana.

    Except she's so strong she basically creates a new level of power as far as healers are concerned, and none of her power level is superfluous when it comes to carrying me through bosses/trials earlier than I would have otherwise been able to. I wanted a top tier unit with dispel for Gilgamesh so that I wasn't completely reliant on a friend's Noctis dodging everything, and now I have one. She's also craaaaaaaaazy in arena. Hard counters ricochet/blizzard flask, innate dual white so she can do things like Curada - Dispelga or spam reraise, immunity to basically everything but sleep, and autorefresh.

    She's craycray.

    slowed down on TM farming, been farming for rank at Wicked Peaks instead during the day. Few level ups help w/ area rank with those 5 extra orbs every time.

    Finally got a Zidane today on my main account. I'm not proud of it but I bought 18000 lapis to pull with and of course he popped on my third 10+1. It was driving me nuts I had all the TMs to make noctis beastmode but no duelwield to kick it off.

    Now I've got 3400 lapis left and 70% to go at rank 50. I bet it probably takes 10k lapis to max one out which still leaves me out in the cold for a while.

    You're getting a 10% moogle from login rewards at the end of the month, 10-20% of moogles from monthly arena, and 10-20% of moogles from the event starting tomorrow. That only leaves 20-40% to grind out, which you should be able to do before Gilgamesh trial releases next month. That's going to be the first content where all these TM's will make a real difference.

    Not at all, it's one of the easier trials. Just make sure you never attack him with a skill or magic (only use auto-attacks). Heals and buffs are ok, but nothing offensive or he gets mad.

    Bring a way to revive your units if you don't have extreme dps. He auto-kills a unit every 4 turns. Avoid elemental weapons (except ice), since he resists all but ice.

    Finally finished my second DW. Nice to be able to run 3 proper phys dps now, or an arena team that is all mages and AE cover-bypassers (Noctis+Chizuru). It wasn't actually supposed to finish until sometime Saturday, so my Zidane must've had one hell of a hot streak today.

    Not sure what to queue up next. I've got 2 more BM+Sakurafubuki combos to do, another Karl, another dualcast, and some other random stuff like bracers and black cowl, but it sounds like Ring of the Lucii is the way to go based on what some of you have been saying.

    I wouldn't say I regret it, but it's definitely more fun than powerful.

    Yea I agree with Twilight...as I'm working on a second one...Which I think 2 makes them actually good? Not sure, but I do like the ability to dual cast Alterna with D.Fina + Refia. 2 on the same unit might be good for tanking?

    I'm working on the ring to put on Cecil. It should give him infinite mana and a lot of extra mitigation from the evasion. Could probably drop the healer slot entirely and let Cecil handle it, assuming you don't need the revive/cures.

    Great on Warrior of Light too once he upgrades since his aoe breaks are very expensive.

    New farm events active. Took me a daily and two summon tickets to get a synergy unit (Jack), which is all the summons I'll be doing on this banner.

    For my team, thunder flask from Noctis one shots the 4 trash waves, then the final boss dies in one round to:
    Refia -> Embolden
    Noctis -> Warp Break
    CoD -> Call of the Void
    Gilgamesh -> Divider
    synergy Jack -- nothing
    synergy friend -- nothing

    I saw the doublicorn once, and it also died in one round to the same. Guess it's going to be a dull, but easy farm week. It's ~215 base currency per ELT run, and the doublicorn added an extra 1000 base. Need to figure up how much farming it's going to take me with only 1 native synergy +50% unit and a friend. I may skip some of the 6* mats since I don't really need any right now.

    I did pro once with my Jack and friend Seven but only got +50%. Two Jacks gave +100%, so it seemed like maybe Seven is just broken?

    And yeah, doublicorn is broken too. Only gives 1k, not 3k like they said it would.
