Of course I can't pull any Wakkas now. Good thing his prism is in the exchange shop! I can just barely nab the STMR. Nov 25, 2021 at 4:08 AM

      OK...last day to decide. Get 10K bundle (leaving 7K lapis)? If so, Ygni, Cressnik, or Bulwark? Any will be +1. Current CoW lv.99 is done.

        It's between Cress and Bulwark, for sure. Cressnik is king for morale-building if you're into high score runs in CoW (or just making life easier, in general) but Bulwark has a lot of awesome utility in their imbues/amps/imperils and killer buffs. I don't envy your decision, but I'd say you can't go wrong either way with one of them. Next CoW boss will likely be Mater Caelestis so Bulwark will be handy :-)

        Like @Sartre was saying, easy cow life go for Cressnik. If you prefer more killer and ampl buffs go for Bulwark. Be careful, Yoshi is becoming GOD

        I don't know if it's apples and oranges, but how awful did you feel when you let Shadow not make it to the airship, or when you didn't know you could feed Cid his non-diseased fish? Chorale's fate? Diverti? To quote Willie Wonka, "Stop. Don't. Come back."

        I had forgotten Louise could stat buff, and I wasn't using dual guns nor quad cast on Physalis. Her CWA that uses LB was nice to use every turn. Ling, I had built her correctly but was not using the right abilities in the right order, and so was not able to dragon bite properly until today.

        Obnixious Drops MUST BE SPENT or else you lose them. We'll get a different color of drops for the next season of CoW for a new shop. The Xenostone Shards (used to craft the helm) will most likely still remain and become the CoW version of dark matter.

        Don't forget that we can trade the EX coin for the VIP coin. Just in case you really need it. Since now we can farm the LB levels using NRG, so less pots to buy.

Thanks again, I certainly understand the spread thin thing. I'm hoping I can put up a good friend unit for others. Asides from bonus, I'm never quite sure which to post up.

        Nicely done! As for friend units (outside of bonus) I just leave Esther in fav, and units for the latest trials in Nem 1 and 2. If I see a friend in need I'll build but otherwise I don't generally mess with the friend slots except to swap bonus units.

        Just want to add, the only reason to ex+3 in CoW, as of now, is to be able to take more bonus. From ex+2 to +3, without adding unlocked abilities, gives like 5-10% more dmg from that extra stats, iirc. Keeping mind that without Red Pearl, all those fragments are not gonna do you anything.

        That's just it; I realized too late the benefit of +3 units for bonus rates, and so that would be the main draw for NVA E+3. But I have other units begging for their +2s with stmr so maybe that's where my red pearls should go.

        Yeah, it's all about priorities, and pre-CoW the golden rule was T-pearls should always be reserved for NV base units. Personally, I bumped my Elena up to EX3 but I have a lot of T-pearls saved up. Remember we can get 2 T-pearls every month from the VIP coin shop, as long as they have a daily dungeon event that gives the 200 coins per run.
