    You can post your plans and results for the Black Friday banners. I plan on skipping (I’m not gonna repeat myself for the next few weeks).

    Must.Have.Zyrus and Aiden.

    However after seeing the step up...I’m a bit turned off. Guess I’m going to have to wait on the datamine. Also trying to plan ahead for the Xmas units too...

    I don't pull. I'd pull if i had the Lapis. IF the rest of their kits is as good as those one or two skills we saw are promising.
    Also, there's no reason to hype any of these units yet.
    Ed: Even if i would get one of them, i have so many units i didn't play ::=3::

    I was going to all-in on Olive, but the way this Step-Up's organized really makes my stomach churn. Minimum 36k to just get even one of them... (and if I'm not allowed to choose which one for the currency ticket, I might end up with not-waifu Xon ::ink::).

    I mean, it's nice that every step is a guaranteed Rainbow (new pool), but that doesn't change that I'm spending 11k more than the standard 25k Step-up and I STILL might get completely screwed over...

    As these aren’t limited units, I will probably do a lap or two on each, depending on how the Black Friday banners fall and throw some tickets.

    a 5* base Xon strikes my fancy, and if he can do everything the 4* can, OG Xon is getting retired.

    Will have to check out Aiden, but you can never have too many healers for specific situations IMO.

    What I really want for BF and Christmas are new trials... lol

    Planning to wait and see the full kits on all of the units before deciding. Don't really have much interest in the damage dealers, but if Xon and/or Aiden have nice kits I might be tempted.

    The fact that it’s not limited makes it much easier to skip. Also the fact that the “step up” is terrible makes it even easier.

    Xon looks interesting. I'll wait until the maintenance to decide whether I'll try to chase him. The thing is: on the one hand, I've used (and continue to use) 4* Xon more than any other unit, so assuming 5* Xon is a direct upgrade, it probably makes a lot of sense to invest into him; on the other hand, he is still fine as a 4* unit, perfectly handling his niche, I even saw a Scorn of Aigaion clear with Xon as the buffer, it was ingenious!

    Something relevant for current events
    Need to see the datamined skill sets before making any decisions. As @Skye said, I use the 4* Xon all the time, but then the only reason to get a 5* version of him would be to be able to clear content while stealing items/gil all at the same time using only Xon. So if he can steal items/gil and carry units in the story content (all at the same time, i.e. Waylay on a dual/triple ability with other abilities that do ST/AoE damage [MAKE IT HAPPEN GUMI!]), it probably makes sense to get him. If not, then he's just another Xon...

    This ^. I've miraculously saved 27K lapis in anticipation of Edel because apparently I have a thing for powerful, eccentric old lady characters. Once I hit 30K lapis I'll try not to dip below that amount c'mon willpower ::=3::.

    New Olive would be nice for sentimentality because Olive was my first 5* base unit, so she holds a special place in my gaming heart. And hopefully two random 5* Xon will drop for me down the road somewhere for his utility.

    Heaven help me in the meantime because this lapis is seriously burning a hole through my pocket down my leg and eating away at the floor :confused:

    I still think nearly every damage dealer unit owns that borderline edgelording ikea brand counterfeiting salesman. Hard! :D

    I'd pay hard cash for a 7* Chizu though.
