    I have 5 or 6 7*s that I have a 3rd copy of and would like thems 50%ers. But should I hold on to them until and hope for a 4th copy for the Expert Missions?

    I always wait for the 4th copy.

    Some times you can be lucky and get the 4th copy with one~two months. Otherwise I have some units I'm waiting for the 4th copy since for~five months ago.

    If you already have all TMRs you want or/and you has courage/use macro to farm TMR on Earth Shrine, I would say to wait. Otherwise get that moogle right now!

    Edit: It's only my opinion, but we have the future expert mission who'll need many, many 7* awakenings.

    I personally use them right away. Because I can use the 50% moogle right away, but the possibility of pulling a fourth copy is super low. It can happen, of course, but the game won't last forever either, so I'd rather take my chances with the stuff the game throws at me now than hoarding for a possible outcome that may never happen ::up::

    I held onto my 3rd Zarg and got the 4th from the 5 star EX this morning. Nothing better than an STMR, 50% moogle and another 7 star counting towards expert missions all at once!

    Anyone have a time frame on the expert missions? I need to start figuring out how I can achieve all the stat ones and which units to save pots for.

    Can Zarg get 28k HP?! God I hope so.

    The expert missions were announced during the fan festa that they will be coming soon. There is no actual date for them yet.

    As for the parameter missions:
    There is a good guide here: https://brave-exvius.com/threads/parameter-mission-a-who-to-use-guide.45355/
    Is shows the units with high passives that work well for the required stat. But some are very hard to reach without SMTR or require some specific units for it.

    I hold on to them for as long as possible, until I'm desperate to get moogles. (Happened once with a certain 7* batch, and I ended up wiping out my stash of moogles)

    I used to instantly merge them for the Moogles, since the 7* era just started and I suddenly needed TMRs for units that were low on my priority list.

    Right now I'm just letting them sit there. We've been getting so many free moogles from the Fan Festa that I can be patient. Sitting on 250% of Moogles and could easily double that from 5* merges (probably more, haven't checked in a while).

    Look at it this way: A benched 5* takes just as much space in your inventory as a benched 50% moogle.

    Is the ring worth the effort though?
    Awaken 100 Units to 7★ ~ [Accessory] Origin Ring / オリジンリング:+6 DEF/SPR, +20% HP/MP, +30% ATK/DEF/MAG/SPR

    Off topic, for the parameter missions, this is arguably the one to chase for:
    ATK 2650+ or 2850+ [2H-Greatsword] エクスカリバー(FFBE) +160 ATK, Light Element (50% Acc, Dmg Var. 1x~1.6x)
    and this:
    DEF 1650+ or 1700+ [Accessory] 究防のペンダント +20 DEF, +50% DEF & Auto-Skill: Self +10% Phys Mitigation for 99999 Turns

    It is nice to have but not that OP. I want to chase them just for the UoC Tickets.

    Atk is not easy to get while Def can be easily acquired with LMS.
    I'm still struggling to reach and I have a full TDH set + DKC's STMR (only STMR in my build).
    Spr is also very hard to reach if you don't have a few chosen 7* units.

    Yeah, but it still depends on if you bench your moogles or use them immediately :)

    I guess this really is the core question in this case. If you still have use for moogles all the time (like me), then it might be worth getting them immediately, considering that you might never get the fourth copy, which is more probable than otherwise.
    But if you don't use the moogles asap and already have a stash of them, then you can as well save those 5* bases for the low possibility of a fourth copy :)

    I'm assuming you're not using them of course. If you're in dire need of the 50%, go for the Moogle and don't look back.::up::

    No, but all the UoC tickets you're getting up to 80 are.

    It is possible. But that would be having a possible 7* less in case you get the 6th copy.

    It is up to the individual what he values more: A 50% moogle more or a higher count of 7* units for more, possible UoC tickets.

    small rant: I haven't been blessed with any 4th copy, what more for 5th one ::rudecat6::
    I think I'm one of the select few that have been actively playing since the beginning with zero STMRs (except for Katy Perry's of course).

    TDH Hyoh, every OP dps basically.
    Well at 3rd copy I just merge and get the 50% moogle to get it over with.

    If I have 4 copies and the stmr is not too great I wait for 5th. Like LM fina.

    Reason being, at some point you will have so many 7* the expert missions will be completed anyhow.

    Every 7* awakening is 3mil gil so after awakening 74 I'm pretty broke. Not much reason to hold on to 3rd copies. Expert mission asks for 100 7*, I'm sure I'll get there even if I didn't awaken all the 4 copies units I have.
