    Damn, I never realized how many 5* motes the d300 torments give. Cleared my first 250 and 300 today in the X torment. Tidus water chain and Paine maybe it fairly easy and I have a Wakka bsb so I was able to complete the cid's missions. Gave me enough motes to finish diving Bartz!

    bros, help me beat Liquid Flame magicite.

    my only relevant water SBs are Tidus BSB, Rikku BSB, and Lulu BSB.

    i've got stuff like Shout, Onion BSB, lots of other support SBs... no source of Radiant Shield, tho, and no good source of party quick/instant cast that works for physical characters.

    Try something like:

    Healer -- Curada, Protectga
    Ramza -- Shout, Phantasm, Entrust
    Onion -- BSB, Water Veil, Entrust
    Rikku -- BSB, Sapphire Shot
    Tidus -- BSB, Lifesiphon


    MakoMight / DrMogTeach on Ramza/Onion, use both of their atk boosts on turn 1, then have them both feed Rikku when they build some more gauge.

    Have Rikku spam her BSB as often as possible to stack up imperils
    Tidus siphons into his BSB then CMD1

    If you feed Rikku enough she should be able to stack up 3 imperils in the first 25 seconds or so, then each use of her BSB should deal decent damage from then on, and with 2 entrusters keeping her loaded, she should spend most turns casting her BSB for damage.

    Make sure you're using Bismark as your primary magicite, since without shell you want Bismark to avoid the random hand phase counters (the aoe fire ignores resist, so shell is easily skippable). If you have someone get paralyzed, just reset the fight.

    The X banner coming in 2 weeks might be the best water banner we get for 6+ months plus the ability update is coming before the end of the month too. I'd wait.

    If you insist: Ramza Shout, Tidus Sapphire Shot, Bartz Twin Waterga Strike, Rikku BSB (imperil right), and your best healer? Or you could divest your dark orbs and give in to the Ninja overlords - Liquid Flame is a great fight for this because you don't fear losing your physical blinks.

    So when can we start farming 4* motes? I've had basically 0 wisdom and spirit motes for months and will take probably years to get the number I'd like at the rate they've been giving them to us.

    It's bothering me a little but it seems like they only have dev time for one extra feature at a time and at the moment they are focusing on dungeons (Crystal Tower, Story Mode) rather than alternate advancement, so I understand why they are throttling it.

    I've been conservative with my MC3s and have like 13 stockpiled after only breaking characters I have BSB or better, other the occasional great SSB... and Lenna... because I cleared FFV Torment CM and needed the extra healing off a shared medica.

    I've given the same characters 3* motes and I've got literally thousands of them left.

    4* motes have only gone to A team candidates especially if they unlock something. I'm at nothing for Wisdom motes, got Iris, Larsa and Exdeath I want to dive and there's a few others I wouldn't mind diving but I'm low on Vitality and it's not worth it. I've pretty much got what I need though.

    5* motes are just terrible. Still not finished Bartz and it's been two and half months since his event. Just managed to scrape by and get Raines and Fujin fully dived...

    I've got pretty minimal shit for water, only beat it once but it took more than a minute. If you're interested, this is the team I used (I think you can replicate it with some tweaks):

    Tidus: LS + Sapphire Shot | BSB | +Water RM
    Bartz: LS + Engulfing Twinstrike | BSB1 | Dragoon Determination (LUL)
    Ramza: Wrath / Wrath | Shout | Ace Striker
    OK: Chain Waterga / Water Veil | BSB | Mako Might
    Y'shtola (dived): Ultra Cure | Protectga | BSB | Thundergod's might

    Magicite: Bismarck (though Enki or Enkidu may also do the trick)

    I think I had to get Y'shtola to cast wall at some point lol. Everyone had Resist KO Accessories except Y'shtola who was wearing some resist confusion Accessory. Currently saving for the FFX banner that's upcoming.

    Man Chris that's a lot of extra RM3 Crystals. Think I've got like 5 left, been using them on characters to get their RM3, like Auron, Lightning, Garland etc even though I don't have any SBs. I'm at a shortage of Wisdom too... irritating that all BLM and WHM, and even ninjas use them.

    Edit: Shelke helped to sub-30 Bismarck too with Ashe BSB/OSB combo + Relm Insta cast. All hail the queen of entrust.

    The Crystal Tower event was interesting, but definitely easier than magicite stuff. Got the full CM clear first attempt with the following teams:

    Squall -- Maria, Emperor, Raines, Papalymo, Yuna
    Scylla -- Luneth, Celes, Refia, Onion, Arc
    Adamantoise -- Ashe, Desch, Alphinaud, Edward, Iris
    Adel -- Squall, Shadow, Vaan, Ramza, Yshtola
    Video: Crystal Tower CM

    Squall was just a dps race, so I went with 4.5 dps and burned him fast. Scylla's only gimmick is the petrify, so I used a Unicorn magicite for astra. Adamantoise's gimmick is aoe confuse, so I wore confuse resist on everyone, and Adel's only gimmick is draining Rinoa, but he died so fast that I could ignore Rinoa entirely.

    I thought there was supposed to be a 5th final boss for these events, but I guess not? Not sure if this one was special, or all future crystal tower events are only four fights. I preferred the 4 mini-boss then a final boss like the anniversary version.

    Sorceress Adel is female!

    Crystal Tower was tough, Adel took my physical A team and Squall my magical A team. I had enough 15 synergy for Adamantoise and Sylla is easy. Managed to clear it all first try but Adel/Squall were long fights taking some concentration.

    Couldn't help myself, pulled on FF3 banner.

    Luneth USB+OSB
    Ignus BSB

    Given I already have Luneth's BSB, this was a pretty potent en-wind setup. Also finally having an earth-based attack natively is nice.

    finally beat Liquid Flame, thanks Sinzar / yamikazo / Healthfood

    i used...

    Rikku | Sapphire Shot R3 + Blue Deep R4 | BSB | Ace Striker
    Tidus | Lifesiphon R5 | BSB | Scholar's Boon
    Onion Knight | Water Veil R5 + Entrust R2 | BSB | Dr. Mog's Teachings
    Ramza | Water Veil R5 + Entrust R2 | BSB | Mako Might
    Y'Shtola | Curada R2 + Protectga | BSB + SS2 | Battleforged

    I used Enki as my main magicite rather than Bismarck as suggested

    finished in 1:10 but that was with an unlucky paralyze on Ramza, so i missed out on recasting Shout when i needed to... should be able to get it under a minute if i get lucky and don't get paralyzed.

    Water Veil actually did a surprising amount of damage for a 3* spell. 4k-5k per cast before imperil even landed. and the quick cast time on it helped cycle Liquid Flame through his forms quicker, resetting his ATB gauge more often and reducing the amount of damage i took.

    now for the Dark and Holy battles. i've got pretty good holy coverage including Hope's OSB so i think i should be able to take care of that one, but i don't have much for dark stuff.

    Great job!

    The Mist Dragon is the easiest magicite in my opinion. Even if you don't have many dark relics, a ninja with Shadow Embodied will deal nice damage, and in a week or two after the ability buffs, any generic dark mage with memento / dark zone should deal plenty of damage.

    Shadow Dragon magicite on the other hand is probably the hardest magicite boss, and the only one I still can't sub-30, so try not to get too frustrated with him!

    yeah i ate my words pretty quick about how i thought Shadow Dragon would be easy. i really need to rethink my generic 1 OSB / 2 Entrust setup before i'll be able to beat it. he kicked my ass pretty handily on my first attempt.

    my only good dark stuff is Edea's BSB and Jecht's OSB. probably won't try again until at least tomorrow tho, i'm about to figure out the second two parts of the Bahamut Torment. haven't tried it since getting Luneth's USB and Zack's Chain, excited to see how much better i do now.

    in other news, i had been saving mythril for the upcoming FFX banner's water stuff, but now that i beat Liquid Flame i did a couple pulls today. probably should have passed on the Crystal Tower darkness banner, but after my GF did two pulls on it netting Cloud of Darkness USB, Sephiroth OSB, Edea LMR, Emperor LMR, (and Garland SSB), i decided to try my luck... all i got was Kuja's en-dark SSB and Gabranth's identical but physical en-dark SSB. then the FFIV:TAY banner came out tonight, and i decided that since i could use more physical FF4 stuff and i really like Ceodore for some reason, i pulled... and ended up with 2x Tellah LMR and *drum roll* Ceodore USB. so i was happy, even tho i probably would have been better off with relics for characters i didn't already have stuff for.

    i'm back to being really stoked on this game in general lately. we are honestly very lucky that this game exists. it scratches all the right itches!

    i melted the Bahamut Torment. wind weak boss, Luneth w/ the USB+SSB combo, Zack with the Wind Chain+BSB combo, and Alphinaud w/ BSB for even more wind goodness. Onion Knight BSB and Y'Shtola WHM master race rounded out my team for both the D250 and the JS CM. i've also got Arc BSB and might have been able to run him as healer for the full 3 man CM, but i'm calling this good enough for now.

    Luneth USB is really good, more so since you can LD him for haste + instacast 3 as well as the new 5* wind jump that just came out. I'm fairly confident that you can 3 man CM him with those relics... If I recall right I just ran Luneth BSB, OK BSB and Arc as my only healer and used Zidane (BSB1, BSB2) and Fang (BSB, OSB) to melt him w/ Cloud USB RW.

    Edit: Apparently JP just announced an 8 party Crystal Tower... Damn gonna be rough putting together 8 teams for the mission.

    I've got one unique team per realm, thats 17 teams? Sounds like you are intended to run mostly realm teams.

    I found Adamantoise in the current tower was quite tough and I'd already used my best characters for Adel and Squall, using three or four otherwise average FF15 synergy characters carried me through though.


    By the way I did the FF3 Torment Jump Start with Arc SSB as healer so don't panic too much. Usually your two off realm characters can carry you for the Cid Mission.

    Making 8 teams for future crystal towers sounds interesting, but will definitely be more challenging. The biggest hurdle for me will be trying to find 8 different haste + boost soulbreaks since you can't use a roaming warrior.

    Cloud USB RW continues to break the game, since it also lets me farm jumpstart FF3 torment Bahamut in about 5 seconds of combat time for the major orb drops. Why can't I disable soulbreak animations...

    I totally get why they ban roaming warriors from all high end content now and going forward. They even remove roaming warriors from story dungeons in the next patch I think.
