    Banner 1 > Banner 2 by a lot. If you needed lightning, earth or holy destruction, that's your banner. I'm full up so I'll pass.

    Welp....I managed to sucker myself into pulling on the banner once. Got 2 discos, King USB and Rem OSB. Was like well, only 1 dupe on this banner and it's a great banner, let's pull some more! Not long after, I cleared the banner minus Rem USB, King BSB, Ace LMR and Cinque LMR (have Ace BSB). Guess someone gets bumped off the earth and lightning teams. Welcome Rem to team magic holy! Had some great luck here, but also feel a little dirty pulling on a banner I didn't really need to. Also strange thing, I'm out of rosetta stones.

    IMG_3824.jpg

    Good start! Been a long time since getting something out of a 100 gem

    So I do a pull here to gain some more synergy and hoping to get good tech. 3/11 and a disco! And guess what...:

    IMG_3825.jpg

    Yay for Cinque USB! but how's that I get Twice the same 5*?? And the same I already just pulled off a 100gem!?

    :Incredible::Mist Opportunity::Nice::Thanks:

    FF Type 0 characters are so high mantaince.

    On banner one is Cinque. She's based entirly around Heavy Physical. Some Heavy attacks give Heavy charges, and others consume them for more hits at better modifiers. Essentially you want to use Grand Charge twice, then hit with Gigant Swing for eight hits at .88 modifier. Eight! With the usual boosters, you could very well be hitting 9999x8! This resets the counter though, so you need to build it back up. Cinque tries to accelerate this. Her USB is very, very good at that. Not only does Gigant Swing hit for ludacris damage, but you only need to Grand Charge once per Swing. Problem here is no Lifesiphon to ramp up to this smashing. Her BSB is pretty much a weaker form of her USB. It slot saves Armor Breakdown, which is very thematic, but suffers from being only one hit. The command 1 is meant to boost two Grand Charges and the final Gigant Swing, just like her USB. It has the exact same problem as her USB. Things would be completely different if either command provided a Heavy Charge, or exploited them. Could you imagine how good this BSB would be if command 1 gave one, and command 2 exploited them? Hit 1/3/6 times with a scaling armor break along with it, even going past 50%? In any event, her LMR helps her get damage from the start of the fight. Cinque needs that and/or an entruster to really work.

    Rem's attacks are mind based, which is interesting, and comes with it's own set of problems. Mind buffs are rare. Her USB gives her a massive one, but also tanks her defenses. It also demands to be used on holy weak enemies. Her BSB is okay. Her command two requires casting every three actions, and I'm not sure if that's a gain in damage over time. At least her command 1 gives her something to do if she runs out of Holys to spam. That command 2 really wants a +MND/-MAG buff on it. I like Rem's LMR because I'm a sucker for procs like that.

    King exists to spam Tempest Snipe. Unlike other Snipe Spammers, King is more offensively built, instead of imperils or random stat debuffs. Sort of like Reno. Anyway, you won't be getting 9999x6 with snipes in any content where you you need that much damage from a 5* ability. With elemental equipment, enThunder, and Shout, I'd expect somewhere around 5.5k per hit. Which really adds up after you toss in Double Cast. King really wants to build a lightning chain.

    Ace is NOT Gambit, I want to point that out. Gambit is far more sketchy. Ace is a fire caster that wants to be in the front row. I hear people say that makes him bad, but I increasling find bosses don't care what row people are in for the big hits. His stuff either helps him survive being in the front row, or get bonuses for it. His BSB does both.

    Queen is a dark/lightning spellblader with the usual spellblade tricks. Which is to say she is really good. Really, the only issue I have is her LMR will only proc a second cast the ability does lightning damage. I know that she really only has her BSB commands to be a source of dark damage dualcast sources, but the option would have been nice. As it is, Queen is a Thundering Quadstrike user. Which, when you think about it, places her in direct competition with Lightning. Going up against a headline character is not good for your career. Two, if you want to count Sora.

    Machina wants to be the master of Tumbling Quadstrike. Bartz exists. What does Machina do that Bartz doesn't? Machina relies on stoneskin for his USB. That's a downgrade. His BSB kind of helps make that sustainable, but, really, it didn't work out for Noctis, and he gets major pushes.

    Nine is a wind imperiler. He does dragoon stuff. He's competent at both jobs. Physical wind is a tough field to break into though.

    And there was one other pull that was Rem USB and Cinque LMR.

    Shame I didn't get anything for Cinque except her LMR, but surprisingly managed to get 3 rolls that were all 2/11 or 3/11 with no dupes in all of them.

    I personally think we're past the time of having to use Lifesiphon and Wrath for SB charging with only a few exceptions -mostly entrusters, some healers with access to Wrath and a few characters that can spam Imperils (like Faris).

    Ever since they increased the SB gain from using abilities and since we entered a meta that favors speed, Lifesiphon hasn't really been all that important anymore since it's usually better to spend turns dealing decent damage and then using an SB once it's charged (or using an entruster for that) than to just spend multiple turns lifesiphoning. For anything that is based on speed, all those turns lifesiphoning are basically turns that could have been better spent dealing damage and are very possibly the difference to achieving (or not) a sub30.

    Cinque's LD grants her a chance to gain a charge of HC when using Heavy abilities, which by itself gives her a chance to go Grand Charge => Gigant Swing, or to get a free HC charge right after using Gigant Swing (which also allows her to go Grand Charge => Gigant Swing). This alone is already a lot better than lifesiphoning, and even without her LD, I'd still prefer to use Grand Charge x2 => Gigant Swing.

    I've heard lots of recommendations on this banner based on how Cinque's stuff (mostly USB) makes her a powerhouse. (shame I didn't get anything for her except her LMR...)

    I wanted Cinque USB, I saved 300 myth for it. And first pull was Cinque USB/11. So I did 2nd pull just for the sake of pulling, got Ace bsb and LMR, and switched to water banner.

    Thanks for not letting me down this one time, RNG!

    Being zero for Type 0, and disappointed DeNA didn't fix the water banner, I decided to go for a pull here.

    IMG_0560.PNG

    Bad timing to pull a 1/11 when I want synergy, but at least the 1 turns out to be handy, a +lightning stat stick and my second lightning USB.

    Not sure how well King fits on my lightning team, though. Sora (glint+USB and LMR) is the one sure thing, and Kain (OSB and BSB) has been a fixture on the physical side. The rest of my lightning crew is pretty murky: Lightning and Laguna have their adequate imperil BSBs, Raijin (OSB, BSB, SSB) can sometimes be fun, although monk abilities don't support lightning too well, and Reks (BSB + SSB) usually comes along for his boost and haste more than anything else. On the magic side I have Desch with his BSB, Ashe with her OSB, and then a huge drop off to Garnet with Dagger Dagger.

    For next steps, I don't know if it's worthwhile to pull on T0 again (only one dupe and plenty of tasty Rem gear), cool my heels and see if DeNA screws up the lightning banner the way they did water, or go back into luckies-only mode and hope Garnet's 2.0 chain is on a good banner in a month and a half.

    That's fair, but I still don't like how she's locked into two 5* skills.

    Did three pulls here, ended up with Rem USB and BSB (both dupes), Cinque SSB and USB, Ace LMR2, King LMR and USB.

    Would have liked one of the new Rem relics, but I think it was a good return for three pulls.

    on new realms, I also like to do around three, because the draws seem to
    favor everyone getting pretty decent things, But I switch things up.

    I break them up, over the period they are available,
    example: one 11 then 11 singles through out the week as I play,
    then the last depends on what I got so far.

    I got 6 Bursts and 7* King's Guise and two LMR into my 11 single run.
    I'll post the results a bit after 2 banner drops.

    note for @OhCanada because he asked

    Cinque USB +1 charge will work with her LM2 for 50% charge. So if you have her USB and have her dived, she have a 50% chance to keep using Gigant Swing every turn with 2 charges.
