Quina Sync will finally be mine... in May (if I don't get it before then).
How many tickets we get until may? 13 Black Friday, 10 winter fest, anything else?
do you mean uncurated banner pulls or just realm/elemental tickets?
Any; we also get Quina sync in Realm IX? That's a good sign
yeah Quina Sync will 100% be in the IX banner at refresh. That's my current plan: to save tickets and throw them there.
Great to hear, I can save for it too
I have nothing for Quina at all.
Err I thought Quina Sync is avail on the dream sync that's about to drop?? Doesn't it say Nov??
the Nov means that's when Japan get it. The *second* date is when it drops in Global.
Thank you once again for this fine community service!
Pondering Ashe sync2 as I'm due for another Dream this year and no major players like Quina / Elarra2 are available.
Nothing else is really jumping out at me. I don't like purchasing a relic for one fight, and while Ashe would make lighting elemental team she really isn't *needed*.
The only other option for something needed for more than one fight in the known future is dark MAG / XII, but Vayne sync is still a ways out.
Ashe Sync2 is a very fun relic.
I'm a big fan of her kit in general, so it's very tempting
she did 59999 per hit one turn for me vs DK lol
What’s the rotation for that to happen: alternate c2-c1 and hope for doublecast?
it was Sync2 + AASB + triple-cast CMD2 -> HA lined up with Fevered Rhapsody
[here it is if you want to see it in action!](https://youtu.be/hYo03qPUmXE?t=520)
Oh yeah forgot about the woke lol. I did nab her sync 2 when it debuted, and I have the woke and I pretty much have everything to…make the magic happen (pun intended). Thanks I’ll check out the vid.
That's on winter B5 if you're planning to pull there (it's an insane banner depending on your dupe load, even without dwokes).
Good point, thanks for that. I can't remember what's on B5 exactly but I remember it being pretty decent
2 FUJIN BDLs, 2 Raines BDLs, Rydia holy, Laguna ATB, TGC/Ashe sync2, then some dyads.
Have Fujin and Raines AA1s so more relics for them would be nice
I have the Rydia holy kit so they would be dupes
Laguna/TGC/Ashe syncs would all be new though only Ashe and Laguna would see use
UPVOTING FOR THIS
also, I have been looking forward to that banner for so long!
> I have been looking forward to that banner for so long!
Although I just realized something on this one. The banner is 10 7s and 2 6s, which means that the Raines2 woke that's now "a" dupe for me is really TWO FULL DUPES. I'm going to go 3/33 with 2 Raines2 dupes and a Rydia dyad for sure now.
Did JP ever get a banner that is 11 7s and 1 6? That 6\* would be 3 full percent of the hit rate there...
That's... lol. That's facinating. Yeah.
I'm not completely mad about better odds of Fujin AASB2, at least!
Oh me either.
Funny thing as I just poked through - I didn't see any 11/1 splits, but there is another 10/2 split. On the [Best Banner Ever Seen(tm)](https://www.reddit.com/r/FFRecordKeeper/comments/ov08jr/s3gi_dark_jp_megathread_labyrinth/) that I'm definitely planning to pull.
I bet you'll never guess what my _other_ recent [Book of Trials pull](https://www.reddit.com/r/FFRecordKeeper/comments/qmzkov/book_of_trials_xviii_xix_relic_draw_megathread/hjcz0xv/) was... \*laugh\*
That's a good banner. Best ever, idk.
Ashe Sync2 is great but a bit bad if you compared to some similar Sync later like Enna Kros/Hope who have BDL+1 built-in on command 1 instead of 2....
Don't get me wrong, I'm a fan of Ashe too and have her full kit but even then, I can't slot her in my lightning team due to Sync2 awkwardness and I have better option than her.
Shanty and… who else is better than full Ashe?
Not really better but I have Palom AA1+2+LBO, I prefer to use him over Ashe because of HE, I could try Ashe with AA+SA2+Dyad but I would wait until she has HE first and she will have her place in XII lab anyway.
Garnet is a lock since I need chain holder and of course, she also has HE in coming lightning lab too.
Ashe seems like she would smoke Palom even without HE - 6-hit HA, extra cap break on sync, and 3-hit chase LMR that breaks cap. I have Palom sync/AA1 and I’ve been pretty underwhelmed
Hmm, he is not underwhelming at all to me. My Palom managed to clear a lot content including Snow Giant/Abductor with just AA2/LBO before (I got his AA1 after), I kinda like him a lot. No way I'm going to bench him on his prime element now.
You won't going to use that 3-hit LMR on her, it's weak and she need LM1 to able to cap her higher ceiling. As I said, she is great but wonky Sync2 doesn't fit well with me. She has extra BDL (or 2 if w-cast) at the cost of using command2 every other turn, I think someone did the math before and the dps is roughly on par by just spam C1 except at 4th turn.
Anyway, I think I can clear it regardless of option. It all come down to my favourite pick lol.
Every 2 turns the options for Ashe are:
c1/HA x2 = 12x3.05 + 12x3.5 = 78.6/24, max 480k
overall with 35% wcast = 91.4/28, avg max 560k
c2/HA + c1/CT = 1x3.05 + (1.5 * (11x3.05 + 6x3.5)) = 84.875/18, max 530k
35% chance = extra c1, + (1.5 * 6x3.05) = 103.175/24, max 710k
35% chance = extra c2 = 1x3.05 + (1.5 * (12x3.05 + 6x3.5)) = 89.45/19, max 730k
If both = 1x3.05 + (1.5 * (18x3.05 + 6x3.5)) = 116.9/25, max 970k
overall with 35% wcast = 94/20, avg max = 716k
So I wouldn't quite say it's on par unless you're not hitting the 20k cap anyway. Assuming you are, it's an extra ~450k on average over the course of the sync.
That's good to know, I might try her again later.
It's been a long time since I tried to use her Sync2, the impression wasn't quite good back then.
Ashe LMR was consistently breaking cap against Wodin and DK for me. With sync2 it's probably a lot more borderline, suppose it depends on how beefed up she is if you're bringing both moogles
I will consider that after she get her HE in XII lab for sure.
While I said I have her full kit, it means I have to lens AASB to complete her but I think I will save lens a little longer until XII lab.
I can use Palom in Lightning Lab for now which should be suffice.
Yeah no rush for lightning elemental gear, I honestly can't wait for lightning Lab as I've waited SO LONG for a gen 2+ lightning chain, and I will have lensed Prompto by then
Well, my lens plan is Paine CSB > Prompto CSB > Hope CSB > Ceodore CSB > Rem AASB, Ashe AASB is gonna take a long while xD
The +50% damage status from sync2 applies to the LMR chase in full, whereas the chase only gets +5% from the AASB Rank Boost. It should be more likely to break cap with sync2 if anything.
Interesting. I was more talking about LM1 being necessary to fully cap with the extra room, but that’s a very good point - the chase could do some serious damage with a big boost
Conveniently (at least in terms of math), it's exactly as easy to hit 30k with +50%, as it is to hit 20k without it. So I'm not sure the LM1 is any more relevant with the higher cap.
Not sure there's anything I can be sold on for this set, since the only fight I have significant concerns with right now is Physical Ice (Squall SA/AA, Celes double AA, and then either her or AA1 Laguna for Chain) which there probably isn't a good pick to work with here (best I could do would be like Steiner AA2 for AA1 BDL or something).
Still looking forward to adding Kefka's Sync to my collection in the next week or two. :)
I understand and I did the same back in July or so after getting AA2 in the last fest AA select opportunity. It has indeed been very helpful for any DK team with even just 1 mage (and/or a really weak realm healer).
Do you by any chance have the initial LBO list from the last Dream Select in Sep (GL)...? Just trying to figure out which ones were new since the RK2 site appears to be out of date (at least the Relic Draw section). Thanks :-)
so to be clear, can i select Quina Sync tonight?
No, both because Global didn't get an in-app announcement that Dream Selects were coming tonight, and also because Quina is being added to the JP Select Pool next week when these drop; Global is expected to get this pool update around May.
Only if you play JP. On global we’re on the May 2021 / Nov 2021 column :(
Damn it. I feel like I could conquer the hardest lab content if I just had that but whatever
> Also worth noting is that they've finally made the USB Select a Pull Once/Select Two banner
Really? I was certain that happened in October, for both the USB select and the AOSB select. This time around it was only the ADSB banner in which I saw a change in quantities: increasing the number of possible draws from 1 to 2.
Everything else here looks the same as what I saw :)
I double checked and you're right, that change was made last time and I just didn't notice. Whoops. :)
Still no quina sync sadge
I still remeber the pain from spending 500 myth just to get everything in that banner except quina sync like it was yesterday
Unit has experienced similar feelings of pain.
350 Mythril and 3000 Gems on Master/Matoya/Thief AASB Banner, only to miss all 3 AASBs
entirely (and get 4 Matoya AOSBs and 3 Thief AOSBs, among other one-offs).
do we have access to whatever was in previous pool or it's only relics from the Nov 2021 column? how does this work?
Everything in the first column is what is previously available for select. The second column is what all new is coming to Global’s next dream select option. So all available options for upcoming select is first + second column
damn! impressive pool then! any worthy must have candidate except mog aasb2?
In terms of super top tier support relics, I’ll say that Cait Sith AASB and Mog AASB2 are the two main ones that you can build easily teams around. (Cait for magic teams, mog for all teams) - pretty much every bit of content in the game so far can be taken down with these two support relics.
Orran AASB is also highly regarded but I have yet to pull that one so can’t say for sure, as it seems you’re like to also need his SASB to get full value from him. Otherwise, there are some really good dps options as well, but generally dps are used in less overall fights than the support options
So we gona get january and feb again more 2 dreams lol
Beatrix Dyad will be mine next month!
