    2 dupes on banner 1, 4 dupes on banner 2...

    Two Arcanes and Pecil USB2 are super tempting. But banner 2 has Palom USB... Yet Fest is coming up. UGH. Decisions!

    Weak FFIV RS? 1 dupe on banner 1? Good Stuff? The choice is obvious.

    100-gem: Fusoya BSB

    Wanted Pecil/Decil USBs even though prevailing wisdom is that Pecil's isn't ultimately that useful in the near future. Decided not to blow a large amount of mythril on it with the fest banners coming up.

    1-pull: trash

    Hmm. Ok, fine, I'll do *one* cult of 3-pull. But that's it and you'd better not let me down, game....

    IMG_4624.PNG

    Yep, ok, I'll take that.

    I had 4 pulls planned for this banner and stuck to it. Not pulling on fest banners (except #5), so this banner is kind of my "fest". I wanted Fusoya BSB to give me a holy option to go with Mr. Raines. Doesn't really jive with Rem since she's MND based, but I'm not sure Rem needs more help! Until we see what they are doing with holy caster chains, I'm not going to dive Fusoya. Hopefully we'll find out early next week when JP gets the banners for their upcoming fest. Also got enamored with DKC USB and glint - since it sounds like that's a destroyer of worlds, despite my dark team being amazing already. That being said, let's get going!

    100 gem: DKC BSB2 - it sucks, but +10 atk and not a dupe! Feeling good!
    1/11: It's a 6-star! Woo! It's DKC USB! WOO!
    2/11: A 6-star and a 5-star! Wow! Pencil ASB and Pencil BSB2 (dupe)
    4/11: Another 6-star and group of 5's! DKC USB again, DKC LMR2, Pencil LMR2, and DKC BSB2 again
    4/11: Moar 6-star! DKC ASB, DKC LMR1, Fusoya BSB, DKC LMR2 again

    No complaints other than where's my DKC glint? I have 4 pulls planned for banner 2, hopefully Palom USB comes quickly. That banner actually scares me quite a bit since Pencil's really bad USB1 is there and I have it at 8-star already (not from trying). Barb USB would also be fantastic along with their LMRs. I'll cross my fingers.

    I pulled dark cecil demon helmet and am having trouble understanding part of the mechanics; it takes away 99% of your HP but grants 100% stoneskin...don't these two things basically just cancel each other out?

    That's the idea, because otherwise he'd die with a whisper. XD Also, he needs stoneskin active for his bonuses.

    No, the 99% HP reduction doesn't impact the stoneskin. So definitely use those new waters to boost his HP if you get his USB. I'd imagine with synergy it would give him over 10K HP, which means a 10KHP stoneskin. In normal battles, that shouldn't evaporate immediately. That's why I want his glint, so I can keep that thing up. You'll definitely want to monitor the average damage of the boss on other characters and assume he's taking at least that much damage. I really wish they'd tell you how close to dying your bubble is. Also, the recoil from darkness abilities can't kill you, so he's fine at 1%. That being said, you will have to manually target your healer unless you want them healing him non-stop.

    Well, this banner and the Dream Select treated me much better than the Realms on Parade did... ;)

    (Primary Targets were Porom and Palom's USBs.)

    100 gem: Pecil USB1 (sadly a dupe).

    Welp, after getting another dupe 6-star from the 5 mythril pull (amazing luck with 6-star, horrific luck in getting a non-dupe), I decided to do my pulls here.

    First pull: 3/11 - 2 6-star! *drum roll* Palom and Porom USB with Palom LMR! weeeeeeeee! Since I still had some budget and wanted Barb's USB I tried some more...

    Second pull: 2/11 - Porom BSB (new for me) and a dupe Pencil USB. Ok, not ideal...

    Third pull: 2/11 - Palom LMR and Pencil USB. OK...I have seen this movie before. I'm stopping here.

    Barb USB re-appears in an almost identical banner in September and we have ~ 2 DU LD with FF4 between now and then. Hopefully I get lucky as I'm not keen on duping out a lot trying to get it.
