    From what I've read, they will come with future events. Most likely from very high difficulty fights though.

    I just picked up a rod for Terra. Probably getting the Type-0 MND dagger and then wait for the elemental artifacts.

    I grabbed FF9 Sword, FF10 Spear (bad choice, as I dropped Kimahri from my Dream Team) and the FF4 Bow.

    Next I plan to get the Magic Dagger, so I can use it on both Vivi and Red XIII

    I'm just holding out until elementals... A lot of people have mentioned the T0 MND dagger though, what's the draw to that exactly?

    It has the same amount of max MND as other artifacts (like staffs for example) but basically daggers are useable by everyone so you can equip it on your white mages.

    I mean why people are all choosing that particular one. Also why they aren't just waiting for a holy+ one next wave.

    One example would be for someone like Beatrix. She can use 6* White Magic, but she can't use Staves/Rods, so that dagger would be perfect for her. If you wanted to turn her into a stronger caster.

    Would that not be better with a non-RS holy MND dagger from next wave?

    T-0 is the only dagger having MND as it's primary stat so it's great for healers who don't benefit much from a holy+ artifact unless you are casting holy(ja) instead of healing.

    Every element for every type of weapon for each primary stat. For example you could get a lightning phys sword, or a lightning mag sword.

    While elemental artifacts are more valued by the community, there are good reasons to pick up realm artifacts.

    Elementals are obviously better for Magicites, but for Torments the realm artifacts rule. Might be a good option for any Torments you have yet to clear. I picked up the XV Sword since it can boost Noctis’ NE damage.

    Realm artifacts are the best stat sticks under brave synergy, so they come in very handy for transcendent super-bosses. A personal aim is to eventually have around 5-7 to equip a team for those bosses.

    Artifact stones supposedly become quite plentiful quickly. The real bottleneck is likely to be Rainbow Crystals. If you have a large vault and/or are a whale, you’ll have plenty of resources to pick up realm artifacts without having to “sacrifice” elementals.

    Interesting. I heard the bottleneck would be the artifact stones and not the rainbow crystals. As you pointed out though, that may be an issue for whales vs non-whales.

    I suppose it depends on how many of the elemental relics you’d want. If you want multiple types in every single element, artifact stones will quickly be a bottleneck. But when you reach that point, I assume your rainbow crystals will also be an issue, unless you’re a huge whale, or you are not intending to level artifacts to lvl 50.

    Another whale related issue is that whales would have 8* combined equipment, which might reduce the need for artifacts in some elements.

    Remind me, for the artifacts out now, they get realm synergy whereas the others do not right? They also provide elemental boosts, but only for synergy? My argument, for whales, would be that you probably have synergy + element relics from chasing relics on banners. There may be gaps here or there, but you probably have more or less everything you need. So that means the second round of artifacts are generally more valuable (and would get brave synergy for special events). For non-whales, you need to figure out where your weakest or where you need that extra boost and select accordingly.

    I'm personally waiting on round 2 as I want to fill some elemental gear holes (magical lightning, water, earth; thrown/ranged elemental gear). I don't know if I'll take them to max or not, but I'll math it all out later :) Looking forward to their introduction.
