AT Frames are even better than I thought they would be

    Hope everyone is well. Like pretty much everyone on this board, I have been posting way less because the game has been underwhelming, and even more importantly, real life has had a lot going on.

    In any event, I have been rocking kurasame as my main and hyoh before that (and still rock him sometimes for LB stuff), and really had no AT frame experiences until this week. DR frames I could get to chain uninterrupted once in a while by hand, but not that much. It often broke in the middle. For Quick hit Kurasame frames, Nox is a must to perfect chain. It is a disaster by hand. So I use Nox for hard stuff often.

    For the recent witch trial, she was weak to light (I know technically she resisted all elements but light; shut up, dork!), so I figured it would be time to gear my 7 Fayt I lucked into and chain him with my Firestarter (RIP) Lasswell. I got perfect chains everytime! It felt so good to do hard trials on the phone again. Anyway, I think I am now resolved to spend my "horde" (well, about 30K lapis, and growing) on an Akstar.

    TL;DR: AT frames are awesome.

    I just recently ventured into the AT Frames territory myself. I've had Sephiroth leveled and geared, but never used him for AT frames. He was my Octoslash partner for Reberta for 10 man trials only.
    Along came the most recent Hasiko trial, decided to give Sephiroth a go, paired with CG Lasswell. He did fairly well. Chains weren't to difficult to chain, I still prefer Octoslash, but its nice.

    Now, Beatrix gets enhanced. Loving the fact she gets a strong chaining family now. She'll be my lead for a while, I'm sure!

    I bought the A2 prism this morning so she can AT chain with Sephiroth. I know Akstar is coming but A2 is just so cool.

    I’ve been using AT frames for a few months now. Sora, PG Lasswell, A2, A. Fryevia, and now Beatrix. Works like a charm and the modifiers are pretty good!

    Yeah man, I found that out when I pulled Auron. AT frames are super easy. I’ve got 50K+ saved for Akstar and should finally have another UOC by then. I’ll all in! We’ll go from Kurasame chaining buddies to Akstar chaining buddies (hopefully).

    Can't wait! Although wondering if Kurasame will still have his uses because he has that insane first turn burst, and Akstar takes a turn to build up.

    Poor Kurasame. He never even got to shine in a trial.

    He helped me clear some hard trials. I use nox for the trials when I use kurasame, and his triple shot of twilight rain spark chained kills the crap out of anything.

    Yeah, it's just too bad there have been no new trials released since he arrived.

    True he didn’t get to take on a true trial, but I did go back and spank Malboro 2.0 and Doll Trial handily once I got him and he FTKO’d pretty much everything else they have released since then.

    Good point, that FTKO Burst is mighty powerful!

    Something relevant for current events
    I've used Kurasame in just about everything that's come out since he did (bonus stages, 10 man content, bomb trial, calcabrina, etc.) He's even my King Mog carry right now. So there's no way I'd say he didn't get use since he came out. If there's any content that shifts from magic immune to physical immune and/or vice versa, I imagine he'll be quite useful then as well as hybrid damage works regardless. That's probably his niche going forward as Akstar will be purely physical.

    Kurasame has been able to kill every Mog bad guy and RAID monster without any help from anyone - even a debuff. Definitely makes that stuff so much less a pain in the @$$. Gotta love the K-man

    Looks like all of my Kurasame friends are switching to Akstar! Oh well, I was probably going to pull for him anyway, guess I’d better now or I’ll have no one to chain with! He’ll definitely still have a few uses though, but it’s probably going to be hard to find a chain partner once Akstar comes out. Hopefully we get that 5 friend unit patch fairly soon. Anyone know when that came in JP?

    I’ll def put Kurasame up whenever there’s a trial or mini-boss where he shines better than Akstar, but I’m thinking I’ll mostly have Akstar up if I even manage to pull him. Please no second banner rainbow, Gumi!!!!

    Yeah, hopefully he comes on a single banner, but I’m prepared to burn UoCs if I need to, so I’ll have him for sure. I’ve been saving all of my UoCs so far, but that’s just because the only role I don’t have at least one meta character in is buffer, and I can get by with that because every unit I have that does damage has their own buff and I usually use WKN to tank. Here’s hoping they single rainbow and we all get him though!
