    Such an epic fail.......why are we being tortured with Edge crap? Losing Bartz relics was a big loss for that banner. Definitely looking ahead to realm banners to see where I can get what I want without pulling on these banners.

    Banner 1 and 5 are my targets. Maybe a pull on the remaining banners but ouch, Celes banner has been really nerfed .-.

    Well, personally I decided I'm not pulling.
    I loathe magicite content and refuse to do it, so braves don't interest me. Happy to casually farm content until 4YA rolls around in six months and throw 1200 mythril at it.

    Only pulling RoP and LMR/USB luckies. Maybe I should advise DeNa to make the OSB lucky to include ASBs, then it would be worth it. :D

    I have shockingly low dupe counts (1, 1, 2, 3, 1) and even more shockingly low enthusiasm. As much as I want Elarra gear, I don't feel like chasing it on Banner 2. Banner 4's out, since I'm pretty well stocked on Dark/Holy. I'll pull on Banner 1 at least once because my Earth game isn't great, and on Banner 5 to try to get the lightning chain that evaded me last Fest. Hopefully, when I fail to get Garnet CSB again, I'll at least have some synergy relics for XV or XI.

    Banners 2 and 3 should've been more tempting, and were made less so by the changes from JP to Global. Swapping OK LMR for a BSB (on B2) and Bartz Glint for a BSB (on B3) is a big downgrade to those banners.

    That's the one that turns him into Magical Bartz, with five follow-up attacks when he uses elemental black magic in the four Bartz elements. It's also a +water armor.

    Yeah, not pulling on B2 is going to hurt, because those top prizes are tasty, but not as much as it would have if they hadn't flipped OK LMR for Alphinaud BSB (still a nice BSB, but for me it's a dupe).

    Dupe/want/meh count:
    Banner 1: 1 / 9 / 4 (mehs are mostly relics I don't know the effects to. Could be useful with kits from banner)
    Banner 2: 6 / 7 / 1 (most of the wants are pretty big wants and would vastly improve existing chars)
    Banner 3: 5 / 6 / 3 (a few top prizes, but I think this one is a fairly safe skip)
    Banner 4: 3 / 5 / 6 (correct me if I'm wrong, but the holy here is a tad weak? That's what I need)
    Banner 5: 3 / 6 / 5 (mostly looking at magic stuff here, phys is already great)

    After writing this out it looks like B1 and B2 are my targets. Maybe 2 pulls on B1 and 1 on B2...

    After been screwed badly from the previous fest (4 1/11 with all duplicates), I'm done with any fest relic banners... Would rather spend my precious mythrils on event relic banners...

    If you want to not spend and save like me, or you are undecided, here is what's coming 2 fests from now with the new level of powercreep. (More Gen2 chains, Realm Chains, Awakening SBs).

    I'm waiting for a consolidated megathread. Hard to keep up with it the way he broke it out in that thread.

    Okay, my original plan to pull this festival will be earth banner & celes/bartz banner, unfortunately they removed my favorite bartz set, this make me review all the future banner until Y4A, so I'll give up the current celes/tidus banner but pull the onion/terra banner.
    I'll all in this festival but going to skip the next festival.
    Banner 1 & 2 all in for me.
    Banner 1 definitely just because of earth mage, priority will be earth chain 2.0
    Banner 2 all the 6* will be my favorite, I know the 5* is downgraded but this is the last opportunity for chase Elarra usb1, I don't want miss this opportunity.

    After this festival, I'll hoard the blue, might pull for up coming realm XIV(Alph/Papa), IX(considering), VIII(squall/ultimacia/edea), V(considering).... until Y4A power creep

    My main interest is getting the 3 chain elements I still lack (earth, lightning and holy). So, banners 1, 4 and 5 are my targets.
    I have:

    B1: 0 dupes
    B2: 2 dupes (5*)
    B3: 3 dupes (5*)
    B4: 0 dupes
    B5: 3 dupes (6*, 2 5*)

    So maybe 2 pulls in each B1 and B4, 1 pull in B5

    Edit 1:

    861FC37E-C36D-43D5-9752-28EAE1C9D4A1.jpeg

    No dupes, but no 6* either... I’ll think about another pull

    Edit 2:

    4C1B120D-106F-43FF-ACB7-7E012305AC92.jpeg

    I knew it was a trap ... :so sorry:

    So, Banner 1, only one dupe, super-eager to pull.

    IMG_2168.jpg

    I was a little disappointed when I didn't see a disco ball, but part of the appeal of this banner was that the BSBs weren't crap--Penelo's last stand Medica is a relic I want, Emperor's BSB has some appeal after I got his USB in yesterday's Lucky Draw, Galuf's imperil is handy and even Cinque's is T0 synergy. Also, I only had one dupe, Cinque's LMR. Naturally, I hit the dupe. Maria's arm guard has more appeal as +earth armor than for the enearth effect. Very disappointing pull overall. Under these circumstances I sometimes put off the second pull, but this time I wanted a palate cleanser.

    IMG_2169.jpg

    Palate not cleansed. At least it's not another Cinque beret, but it's definitely underwhelming--not even a +element.

    Part of me wants to grind for the 29 mythril I need for another pull on this banner, part of me wants to say screw it until B5, or maybe Black Friday. Technically it's only Day 1 of the Fest, but I'm not sure it's salvageable now.

    Time has come, it's time for gamble again, heard this time the overall pulled result not as good as usual festival, here's mine, spend all my budget 4 pulled for this banner 1.

    1st pulled, no disco.... that's not a good start but come to think of it it could be worse.
    [​IMG]

    Let's move on try my 2nd pulled, turning better this time, 1 disco.
    [​IMG]

    I can't just walk away with one disco , so the 3rd pull no disco, ouch...
    [​IMG]

    Alright let's burn my last budget, go for 4th and good pull happened here.
    [​IMG]

    4 pulled 3 disco, the 4th pulled make me win.
    So with Nanaki join me, I have completed all 8 element chain.

    :praise rng:

    Low dupe count, so I thought one pull each. Then banner 1 gave me a single 5*, a dupe Galuf BSB2. Unacceptable, did a rage pull, got Maria USB, Cinque LMR, and Rinoa LMR3. I'm thinking of a third despite three dupes, my earth game is really bad, with parts scattered all over the map.

    Current dupe count. 4, 3, 2 (Actually 4, but a third +holy or +ice armor would not be bad.) 1, 2.

    I'm strong on holy, haven't had cause to test out Dark, but I have several dark knights with ultras, just having honed the skills needed to field a full team. I'm good on fire and ice. I'm good for fire, but no chain. Banner 3 has waifus, but Celes and Sarah don't get used much.

    Thoughts?
