    Hello everyone, I'm a old player which come back playing after a long time, I almost completed all nightmare dungeons, but I don't know how to find meta news, neither how to complete magicite dungeons. Would be a pleasure if someone could teach me something thanks.

    Hey Procione, there's lots of threads in the magicite thread with detailed guides on each of those bosses. In general though, most of the 3* and 4* magicite will be a cake walk if you have an Arcane Awakening Soul Break (AASB), a Sync, or the new Dyad SBs in the corresponding element. The general meta comp these days is Healer, Chain (CSB) user, 2 DPS, and then the final slot could be either utility or another DPS, depending on the need of the fight.

    Do you have any specific questions to get you going?

    As for characters, it entirely depends on what you have for someone. First thing you'll want to do is pull a little on the modern banners. The currently running Luck of the Realms banners are a GREAT way to start since you can get at least 17 relics for only 85 mythril. After that you can consider one of two paths.

    The first is discounted banners, "elemental lucky relic draw" and "realm relic draw" (11 relics for 15 mythril). These relics are a little older but if you have a low amount of relics overall then they can get you a lot of bang for your buck to get started. The cost 15 myth for the first pull only on each, don't do more than one. Personally, this path is my recommendation.

    The second path would be to pull on some of the most recent banners, such as the current Fireworks Festival, or the X banner (showing Yuna and Paine). The banners cost 50 mythril for the same 11 relics, but they're mostly new relics, so you're pulling from a more curated pool.

    In either case, after you pull a little and get some relics you should head over to The Record Lab (accessible via "item exchange" on the home screen), and pick up some new relics to shore up your holes. If you don't have a healer Ultra, Awakening, or sync by this point I would consider picking up Ultra's for either Aerith or Elarra. From Aerith you're looking for her Healing Rod relic, and for Elarra you're looking for Magika Album. Either of those should carry you to modern content on the healing front.

    Hello @Procione . Welcome once more to the forums.

    Based on the current available content and power creep, the current endgame Meta is divided into
    1. either element-specific challenges (basically all Magicite battles; also further divided into physical and magical); or
    2. Realm-specific challenges (all Cardia dungeons)
    The good old stacking buff (such as MAG and MAG+MND party buffs) or stacking debuff (such as PBD and Full Break) Meta, is more tactical and strategically used nowadays. For example, instead of using an AASB or Tyro OSB to overwrite Dreambreaker Full Break, some players prefer to combine Warrior's Hymn (BRD for ATK), stacking ATK+X party buffs, crit fixing and +crit dmg buffs (Ramza SSB2 or Elarra USB2) to get around that boss debuff mechanic.

    On completing endgame content, I made the following checklist:
    • Is winning Magicite your priority?
      • Are all 3* Magicites already won?
      • Are all 4* Magicites already won?
      • Are all 5* Magicites already won? (Here, readying your 5* Magicites and it's inheritance become key)
      • Are you able to satisfy the weekly & monthly Magicite missions to gain Mythril & other rewards?
      • Is Dark Odin Magicite already won for at least five elements? (The Echoes accessory does help to cut down inventory space)
      • Are all 6* Magicites already won? (Here, readying your 6* Magicites and it's inheritance become key)
      • Is White Odin Magicite already won? (Here, readying your White Odin Magicite and it's inheritance become key)
    • Is winning Cardia your priority?
      • Are all Dreams already won?
      • Are all Torment Dungeons already won and mastered?
      • Are you able to satisfy the weekly Citadel of Trials missions to gain Rat Tails? (Here, readying your Historia Crystal become key)
      • Are you able to beat the DreamBreaker (DB) dungeon for X Realm?
    Depending on your gaps at whichever stage of endgame content you're aiming to win, then you assess which future banners to go after.

    Personally, I'm after the next Year 6 Anniversary (Y6A) festival scheduled on end of March 2021. In between then, there are tantalizing banners which maybe tempting, such as Cid Raines Sync in FF13 event and Ardyn's debut in FF15 event. Do drop by the chatbox here more often to talk about your plans!

    Sorry for the late reply. Have you farmed out all the 5* magicites already? Have you cleared your five dark Odins yet? 6* magcite are quite a large jump in difficulty, especially for your very first kill. It's pretty much expected that you use AASB/sync and mostly 6* abilities. You also need the proper CSB for the fight. So for Phys Titan you'd want to use either Faris, Luneth, Vaan, or Zack CSB. Each of the 6* fights has a particular mechanic that you have to overcome. Titan's is that he'll make earth walls in phase 2 that you have to deal at least 50k to before you can hit the boss again. Most people use a combination of OSBs and the Fabula Mage RW to clear those. There are 3 walls he uses, so you can clear two with Fabula Mage, but then the last one you'll have to clear with an OSB or Historia Crystal cast. 6*s also like to remove your enelement, and without you do pittiful damage. You have to have some kind of plan around that when you face Titan. Syncs are great for that because you get enelement lvl 3. Do you know how enelement stacking works in this game?

    I don't know really many things, I didn't complete all 5 magicite, because I haven't many mages, the only phys lv5 I can't kill are mateus and syldra because of their barrier, I don't know how to useful sped all my materials, if use them all for one pg or to semi buff all of them, now I'm even trying torment but lv 450 are too much. So I was thinking of titan because I have a strong phys wind team but I cannot overwhelm the barrier

    Ah I'd really recommend clearing all the 5* and then at least 5 dark Odins before moving to 6*s. Do you have a wind chain SB? How much to invest depends on the character and the worth they bring to your team. I usually prioritize characters who might be useful in more than one thing. For example, I've got both holy and lightning relics for Lightning, so I would invest in her dives before someone like Vaan if I had similar relics, because he's only one element. I also try to invest in characters that will help me beat something now. If I want to take on Titan then I make my best team, see how it does, and make investments as needed to boost those characters up to clean clears. For example, if I'm fighting the Type 0 Torment and I find Deuce dying early, I'll go in and half dive her or just get the HP motes and see if that progresses my clear. You should be able to accumulate 3-5* motes pretty quickly, but 6* motes will be really slow for a while.

    If I were you, I'd pull on the 15 myth banners. They can be super hit or miss, but three of them is still cheaper than a single event pull, so the chance of you getting something good is much much higher. We get a fest every 3 months and the next one (late March) will be the 6th year anniversary of the game. There will be tons of super good deals during 6YA so I do recommend saving a little bit for that too. In the meantime those 15 myth banners will give you a lot of value for your myth.

    Yeah so there's 3 possible levels of element stacking. Not every SB gives stacking enelement, but in general glints and glint+ always give stacking. I think only 2-3 USBs in the game give stacking and almost no AASBs. Once you add a stacking enelement it makes everything stack unless you lose enelement completely. For example, let's say you have Cloud's enwind LMR. You start the battle with enwind but no stacking. If you then use either his G or G+ then he'll become enwind2. At this point any other enwind will stack no matter what. So even if you use his USB2, BSB2, or AASB, which do not inherently have stacking enwind, you'll go up to enwind3. If you did not use that glint in the middle you would stay at enwind1 indefinitely.

    One special thing to note is that you can only have one type of enelement at a time and others will overwrite each other. So if you have enwind then use something that gives you enfire, your enwind will be gone.

    Another special note is syncs, which generally give you either enelement3 right away or enelement along with switch draw. These are stacking from the start so if you then use a USB or something with the same element it will just reset your enelement timer. As such, if you have both a sync and aasb or something, it's best to use the sync first, then the AASB as it's ending to get another 25 sec at enelement3.

    Ah ok I didn't know it, and except for glint or sync how do I understand if a SB stacks?

    I usually just use this site:
    https://www.rk-squared.com/soulBreaks

    If it says "stacking" then you're good

    The general rule of thumb is all glint, glint+, sync, dyad stack and nothing else except a few random AASB/USB
