    He hasn't been removed from the gacha pool - just has a ~1.2% chance of showing up off banner rather than ~4.5%

    Santa Rose is a Gold that goes to 6*, and those are some pretty bad rolls i'd say. If it's still a possibility you should maybe reroll.

    This is speculation, or do you have any data to support this? I have been wondering the same thing. I seem to have better luck pulling on Free
    Lapis then with Paid lapis but its most likely just RNG.

    After the first few pulls I couldn't stop pulling Charlottes, but as many pulls as I've done this time I've only gotten two Elle. Some of the whale videos I've watch and the comments here seem to make him the lowest pull for a on banner 3* to date.

    111(?) in 600 pulls - putting him at ~18% - same as the survey on reddit - as said, the lowest rate for a single 3* base unit we have seen thus far.

    I just saw a video with someone spending 225,000 lapis to pull Dark Fina.

    In monetary terms, thats the equivalent of buying 14 or so of the £80 lapis bundles.

    or just over £1100.00 !!!

    he got one dark fina for 1100 quid and about 7 troll rainbows - he was that unlucky that i was waiting for Rick Astley to pop up lol

    now, i'm not rubbing it in or anything but - spent 40 quid on the Noctis + Christmas banners and didn't get a single character worth shouting about - I felt ripped off.

    So I decided not to spend a penny on the dark fina banner, just went round and farmed all the free lapis i could until i had 5000 and then got DF after a 10+1 and 14 tickets - i had one ticket and no lapis remaining when DF popped.

    Without any troll reponses please - is it luck or is there more to it? If the odds were better for P2P I would think thats fair, but what I've seen paints a different picture.

    If pay to play gamers are struggling to get top tier for their lapis, it would be interesting to see them change tactics and do a free 11 pull using the ingame lapis - create a situation where you only have 5000 lapis and 15 tickets - all free from the game - then pull all of those before spending more money. it would be interesting to see how people fare.

    Also I would be interested in seeing people rather than spending all that money in one go, to buy the packs individually before each pull - i want to see if that makes a difference..

    i think they did do something to decrease the appearance of 5 star bases because whales for less were pulling multiples amd had no beef with dropping money. they make it harder so more money will be spent. anyone who spends the ammount that guy did really needs to het their head examined. yes i put money into the game but not getting what i paid for stops me at a certain ammount a banner. gumis greed has gotten worse with each banner. and i think they flag a certaij ammount of accounts each time to pull it with little work to hide that fact.

    He asked why you joined the thread, not why you continue to troll it.

    You can get lapsis slightly cheaper than that, but still he spent a lot.

    In the end rolling dice is rolling dice. Get a 100 sided dice simulator, pick a number and see how long it is before you get it. Getting it in pull 1 or pull 10,000 doesn't change the fact every pull is a 1:100 chance.

    Now there does come a point that you have done enough pulls your probability of having for a certain number does become decently high (i.e the odds of flipping a coin heads once out of 10 flips is not 50/50). To give yourself a good chance of getting a banner rainbow your looking at $300-400 easy, but it can just as easily be worse (or even better).

    Don't spend money chasing rainbows unless you are willing to get burned (think casino). Do daily pulls/free tickets and spend lapsis on TM farming and your account will thank you. Rainbows will come.

    And then it'll be a Duane.

    I've been playing since week 2. I'm pay to play, but not a whaler by any means (although I have big plans for the TG Cid banner).

    I've pulled a daily pull every day since I began, 5 10+1s, and other than the 30 tix I have saved, so far, for Orlandu, i have also pulled every f2p ticket available in that time as well (including all event tickets).

    Other than pulling lightning on her release day (a blessing that has kept me in the game and allowed me to clear all content as it has been released) I have seen 6 rainbows... Lightning being the only base 5.

    I didn't mind so much, at first, but it is starting to take it's toll on my enjoyment of the game. I have no issues clearing content with my current setup, which includes all heavy hitting event materia and gear, but the game gets stale without cool, new units to play with, regardless of my ability to clear content.

    IMO the Japanese gacha fix needs to arrive sooner rather than later. Nothing is more disheartening than getting a fucking 5* garnet. It's getting kinda old.
