    I went 0/44 before my luck turned (eventually got Cecil's BSB and Gordon's bell after more pulls than I planned), and I can't help but notice that both rolling gacha and the guaranteed 5* would be prevented this situation. If I whale again, it won't be until these changes are implemented...if ever.

    I can totally relate... Will definitely postpone whaling as much as possible to see if we get the guaranteed 5* on Cloud's OSB banner!

    But I was counting on an Orbfest to hone 5* skills instead of investing in relics, so I guess I'm salty about that

    Let the salt flow through you all. @Yhache that's rough. There is nothing worse than a dry spell. But I think @SmoothJK has you beat some :p I'm saving 100 mythril for banner 4 any praying like crazy I get my ssb/bsb I've been dreaming of, as I missed them on banner 1.

    @azweik I'm not sure you can call orb fest a break from dailies. If anything you trade in your farming shovel for a construction back hoe to farm harder than usual :p

    @Killeak I'm hoping guarantee 5* becomes a thing soon. No more sad stories of 0/22 and 1/44 almost all of us know so well.

    I like to think orbfest will come after the bsb fest and bridge stuff. But who knows with dena :p

    Yeah first pull was ok, got 2 rainbow. Im happy about it. The second is what i posted just now. Not really dissapointed because i did set low expectations. With no guarantee 5*, I knew this was coming for all of us one way or another somehow. Well my luck is not that bad compared to our friends here.
    Anyway, lets hope that luck is going to turn good for all of us.

    I totally agree. The no guarantee makes me want to save during this time. The guarantee 1 5* makes me want to draw till my last mythil in JP. Who doesn't want 10+ % on SG.

    At the end of my bsb fest. I walked away 14/53. No bsb and only 1 ssb which was one of the 6 healing sbs I already own.

    I went into this fest wanting 1 of 8 items to feel like this fest was a success. I got none of them. Pecil/bartz bsb. Lightning,celes,ramza,agrias,gilga ssb. Or platinum shield was what I was looking for. So I did 2 11x for banners 1 and 4 and a few singles (I think 5 total), as well as 100 gem all 4 banners.
    I ended up with the following.
    100 gem thunder gloves
    1st 11x was 5/11
    -2× chocobo brush
    -kefka cloak
    -flame shield
    -wyrmfang
    2nd 11x 0/11
    3rd banner 100 gem seifer coat
    4th banner 100 gem vaan sword
    4th banner 1st 11x 4/11
    2×yoichi bow
    Sage staff
    Sorcerers crown
    2nd 11x 2/11
    3rd yoichi bow
    AND
    ffx non sb variable steel. (Cuz why not)

    I really can't be upset with the amount of rainbows. But I am annoyed that once again I am left missing everything I set my sights on. I have not pulled a top 3 featured relic since about October when eikos hastega/aoe heal relic was featured and the wait for that first shiny damaging ssb / bsb relic will continue.

    i urge you to consider, like I do,
    you now have nine relics that give options in a battle instead of place holders:)

    but this is the salt shack, so, I guess

    2/61 with only Edea's crown. So much for a relic festival.

    Well, my level of salt has evolved from a shack into a salt volcano. Did 4-11pulls this banner and 1-3pull. Got ZERO fucking rainbows.
    Like Felix I was looking most towards Banner4 for any of the featured items there.
    Banner1 0/11
    Banner2 0/11 0/3
    Banner4 0/22

    Banner 4 salt! I went 1/22 with just a platinum shield (at least I got my third most wanted item on banner?). I'm now realizing fests just aren't good to me...

    Fest 1: 4/55 only 2 on banner items, only 1 character item (Dark Sword (IV))
    Fest 2: 0/11 (was saving for Thyrus so only did 1 x11)
    SSB fest: Skipped, wasn't playing
    BsB fest: 3/33 Mog Scarf, Platinum Shield, and an off banner duplicate knife.

    I know, you will take this with a grain of salt, lol
    Most likely 11x are not working for you ( getting a beat down from Mike Tyson in rounds one and two don't bode well for you in round three.;)

    I so far have done the equivalent of four 11x in singles over a couple of hours / days and gotten Vaan / Gilly / Squall / Edge and Lighting, and switching between event banners, A blue Yoshimitsu / SSB Stardust Rod and Temple gloves
    still, sorry for such a huge loss, It never helps the sprit of the game, when it happens and it happens, often and to a lot.

    and you saved your self heartache :) these fortunes will change, you seem to stay competitive without huge rewards.

    Robin.. let's reverse engineer all those relics into BAT TOOLS!

    But seriously, I know that feel bruh. However, 14/53 is.. kinda crazy % rate.. in hindsight, I'd be happy with that.
