    As I have cleared all Magcities before the Torments, my attention has been more on RS rather than element+. So wave 1 relics are of interest to me. They are more useful for Torments, albeit being much more narrow and niche in general.

    Assuming artifact stones are not the bottleneck and rainbow crystals are, I’m comfortable grabbing a few wave 1s. Already bought 3, so have 4 including the freebie V dagger. Might get 2 more, to help with my remaining two Torments.

    My first elemental artifact pick: dark magic dagger. Purely for sephiroth so I can perform dark magic shenanigans with his aasb.

    I feel like I could probably pick a magic dagger in every element except fire and it would be a big improvement. Some of my stronger magic weapons are very niche like earth bow, wind throw, ice throw. The second mage on those teams (typically Vivi) is typically given a weak statted relic with an element boost or the the strongest magic stat weapon available.

    I got 7 artifacts yesterday. Fire, lightning, water, and dark rods. Earth and dark MAG daggers. Holy MND dagger. I only used 40/60 rainbow crystals since that got me nearly full value for 33% less crystals. Also my gil got destroyed -_-

    5 stones left. Don't know what to pick next, probably elem+ rods. I could easily max out couple artifacts but i'm a collector, still have 1 copy of every free/farmable item sitting in my inventory and with maxed out slots for inventory and vault i don't want to end up with just empty space that i once paid hard earned mythril for!

    Got a thrown fire for physical. Was a stretch to justify, but I found tons of thrown users that have few alternatives like Axel and Ignis. Locke, Bartz, Faris, plenty of thrown users who COULD use fire! Dagger probably made more sense, but I really wanted to max out Axel. Still have 2 artifact stones and plenty of rainbow crystals thanks to my saving method. Will keep my eye out for future artifact uses, but most likely eschewing towards the physical side of things since I did a lot on the magic side.

    Yup, if used wisely, they are a valuable asset to have.

    Nice. I still have around 800 rainbow crystals but my artifact stones are dwindling. Trying to be smart about my use. Considering creating 1 atk or mag relic per realm just to have that ridiculous item available for synergy moments. Will have to see if we get a torment refresh at some point.

    I have 9 artifacts and 9 stones, with 2 elemental phy ones (wind and dark daggers). Planning to get one phy for each element first, for Dark Odin and 6* magicites eventually.

    Realm ones look like less of a priority? Although I got a bunch to deal with Torments.

    Realm are definitely less of a priority, but I feel like I have sufficient elemental coverage I guess. Unless future content requires all artifacts, which would suck. I do enjoy using the regular relics I get for my realm synergies vs artifacts, so I will probably stick with non-realm artifacts.
