    So, another year another anniversary.
    Legend diving has helped many a member stand up to
    the changes in the game and added content.
    What legends did you rise to the top?

    Mine:
    Onion Knight Sorcerer Sublime
    Orlandeau Holy Steel Summit
    Yuffie Keen Ninja
    Gulaf Timeless Valor
    Cloud Mantle Bearer
    Faris Forgotten Family
    Mog Dance Lover
    Eiko Ward of the Sari
    Y'shtola Stunning Scion
    Ramza Beoulve Spirit
    Squall Legendary Seed 18 Dex motes away


    I picked these for their stat boosting or striking potential.
    all have good SB's tho, I have better equipment for many other characters but,
    I use at least one of these guys for every fight.

    I recently dove Deuce as I got his USB, BSB, and SSB. He's one of my new favorite healers. I'm tempted to dive Orlandeau, but I only have his OSB at the moment. Alphinaud or Rydia are probably going to be next.

    Healers: Vanille, Eiko
    Went with a DC early on, then dove Eiko because she has the best dive of all the current top tier healers.

    Black Mages: Cid Raines, Vivi, Alphinaud, Ace
    Covers all elements (mainly because of Vivi), and the inches of summons and speed.

    Physical DPS: Squall, Lightning, Cloud, Bartz, Sora, Vaan, Orlandeau, Marche
    Again, tried to cover the elements but still lacking dark.

    Support: OK, Shelke
    My best buffer and the best battery

    Ninja: Edge
    The most versatile ninja, with his SSB.

    Overall, I tried to cover my bases so that any setup I need will have at least one LD character.

    you ARE a very tactical player and I'm glad I mirrored you, by accident, I assure you.
    I plan to work on my Mage set. Krile/Rinoa/Shatto
    I am taking to heart the idea of having that ONE soul break that makes someone special.
    I just had too many Yufiie ASOB/BSB/GLINT to over look, tho, I do try to level good prospects
    with the idea, I will soon get, that one piece.

    Like, having Eiko's USB and BSB, you can trigger BSB first for critical hit and AOE command 2 heal to work
    through to USB upgrade and re raise. I know it's along shot but, I'm working on Quina's soul break recover
    for battery options

    using you as a metric:
    most people should have bettween 6 to 11 full legend dived
    advanced player about 15 to 20
    do you think that's about right?

    I just counted and I currently have 17. I also forgot I recently dove Edge when I got his SSB and LMR. Here's the full list:
    ARC
    Onion Knight
    Edge
    Bartz
    Terra
    Cloud
    Vincent
    Shelke
    Eiko
    Tidus
    Lightning
    Cid Raines
    Ramza
    Marche
    Deuce
    Sora
    Riku

    I think I have enough to dive two magic users currently.

    to be clear: You've fully legend dived 17 characters?
    that's not activating the legend sphere but filling it.
    Damn son:)

    I burn through 5 star motes pretty quickly :)

    Healers:

    Y'shtola, Iris, Eiko, and Selphie

    Haste and CT0 x 3 (my favorite dive):

    Noctis, Luneth, Shelke, Zack, and Ace

    DPS:

    Squall and Sora (Spellblades x2), Rydia (Summons x2), OK (Black Magic x2), Cid Raines (Dark/Holy x2), Tidus (Water x2), Edge (Ninja x2), Sabin (Monk x2), and Terra (Trance)

    Support:

    Tyro, Ramza and Fran

    That's 21 Legend Dives. My quasi regret is support dives... They just aren't used in the current meta

    FWIW, I partially dived (LM1 and offensive stat nodes) Refia, Maria, Kain, Krile and Curilla. Technically, Tyro and Fran do not have the LM2 so I guess I should adjust fully dived heroes to 19...

    All together, I've invested in 26 heroes.

    Indeed! Complete dive. I've spent way too much time and money (unfortunately) on this game. :-/

    We'll, I'm just gonna say it:
    You and @majicalways should be making more threads about your tactics or the game here.
    with those kind of numbers, you both have, good insight and game play to beat 300 diff pretty reg.
    to get those motes. I only really started to do them with the full torment drop for the anniversary.

    We got too much lag space in our threads to be letting good talent go unheard.
    get to work, you slackers:)

    I am pretty active in sharing Magicite ;) I am still not the level of elite in this forum. I simply haven't missed anything dungeon and boss wise as an almost 3 year player.

    There's one guy above me, and he OWNS the place,
    I say who is elite around here. I'l stamp you now if you don't know.
    If you do want you've been doing, and someone tells you, you are not the level of...

    SPR: 375
    DEX: 21
    VIT: 215
    WIS: 345
    BRV: 303

    My legend dives:

    Cloud - USB, nuff said
    Bartz - multi-element monster
    Y'shtola - dual cast and versatile SB
    Squall - BSB2 says hi
    Tidus - chain, USB, BSB2, everything...key man in water team
    Edge - best ninja, except Yuffie is better
    Lightning - USB ftw
    Ashe - USB ftw
    Prompto - USB/BSB with crazy support
    Onion Knight - it's the most OP unit in the game
    Shadow - For destroying those holy loving mofos
    Terra - Burninator
    Raines - King of Magical Darkness
    Orlandeau - King of Everything
    Sora - Tri-element destruction that Bartz doesn't cover!
    Yuffie - Better than Edge!
    Marche - He makes holy teams go round and round
    Vivi - Fire bomba of doom. Legit a scary guy now with USB+LMR
    Riku - Kid Darkness

    Have my eye on:

    Laguna - future ice CSB and Prompto clone
    Balthier - excellent physical fire supporter and damage dealer
    Sarah - the bardic princess to support my mage teams since OK mUSB stiffed me
    Larsa - astra bsb and wrathable, useful for magicite and specific encounters where affliction break is tough to bring
    Alph/Barbaricca/Ultimecia - future wind mages of doom
    Papalymo - after getting his OSB/BSB, he's a strong contender, but unsure due to the way magicite work...
    Strago/Rydia - water mages for future 5-star magicite
    Palom - Lightning nuker of doom if I get lucky on his future banner
    Hope/Fusoya - Future holy nukers...maybe
    big maybe => Seymour: his LM2 is great with his BSB2, but if he's using his CSB, will he ever get to his BSB2?
    another big maybe => P. Cecil: his USB2 is wall + easy heals that can replace a healer on a team. With Marche by his side, it's insanity. Having him cover people and get the bonuses from LD is gravy. He'll be constrained by the fact that I'll be using his motes on mages.

    By my count, you can get a maximum of the following so far:

    Spr: 975
    Dex: 1005
    Vit: 999
    Wis: 1075
    Brv: 1003

    That gives a possible total of 24 full dives, assuming you optimise the distribution.

    How many you have depends on how many of the 5* motes you’ve gotten/missed, and how generous you are with spending them. I’ve tried to keep about 200 of each in reserve, just in case.

    I only have Vanille in my healer diving squad. This is concerning me.
    I also am contemplating doing Ramza. Will it greatly improve him?

    No, definitely don't dive Ramza. Since sub-30 is such a focus in the game, you aren't likely to need that extra duration. His LMR1 and LMR2 are much more valuable. Save the motes for someone better.

    Yeah, support LDs and buff/debuff duration LMs are less useful in the current context of speed runs. Dualcasts will generally be more useful.

    Its been a while since I looked into Legend diving, been lazy with motes. So far only fully dived Yshtola and Orlandeau, since I have Ysh's BSB/wall and well, all of orlandeau's relics. Looking to see who would be worth a full dive, and who to work on first. I'll list characters and what relics I have on them.

    1. Cid Raines (OSB, BSB, SSB1)
    2. Lightning (USB, OSB, BSB1, SSB1)
    3. Alphinaud (BSB, SSB)
    4. Papalymo (OSB, BSB)
    5. Yuffie (USB2, USB1)
    6. Relm (USB, BSB, SSB)
    7. Delita (USB, BSB, SSB)
    8. Luneth (OSB, BSB, SSB, Advance SB)
    9. Krile (Chain, BSB, SSB1, SSB2)

    Cloud, Squall, Selphie, Terra, Rydia, Celes, Noctis, Sora, Yshtola, Lightning, Tidus. Working on Raines and will probably do TGC since I got both of his 6* this event.
