    Anyone know what the maximum number of hits you can get in a chain is(if there is a limit)? I started wondering about this after getting a 105 hit chain on Gagadodo yesterday(2 NV Cloud and a NV Firion), wondering if it's possible to push past the 200 hit Mark or beyond. On a side note, I just returned to this game after a 3 year break and my god have things changed. Within a week(and no money spent) I have an account WAY stronger than the previous one I had for about 6 months(and about $200 into) over 3 years ago. Seems the game is far more generous giving out rewards. Plus either I just got really lucky (pulled a NV Cloud and NV Firion in first day), or the drop rates are higher (probably just got lucky, lol).

    There is no chain limit. The game is friendly to "begginers"

    I'd say count up for 6 units with tripple AR chains 30*6*3 (-1) = about 539

    Technically you can get 500+ chains, but that's near impossible tbh.
    The main chaining family used to get super high chains is Aureole Ray (30 hit), double cast = 60 hits, T-cast = 90 hits. The more units fitting this = much higher chains

    No real limit, but no reasons to push that far outside of fun. There is no direct correlation between the chain number and damage after some hits.

    Damn, 500 hits? I imagine the damage on that hits the maximum limit generally (what is it, like 99 mil or something).

    Six Dark Mage Exdeath, quad casting his Ex-Meteor (60 hits) (60 * 4 * 6) -1 = 1439

    Yes there is a damage cap, you can deal 2,147,483,647 dmg per turn and the damage won't be higher with the number of hits in chain in most cases. Different skills and units has different damage modifiers, AR is really low in terms of damage. You could use 2 units with strong SR chain (let say triple cast) that would be 59 hit chain and it would deal much more damage than triple cast AR (with low modifier) that would be 179 hits. Most effective strategy it to chain 2 units and have 1 finisher unit which will do the job

    All you really need to worry about is getting a 100 chain in DV. ::up:: After that it is just for fun and seeing big numbers l::rofl::

    I just came back to this game a week ago so I'm limited as to what units I have to work with. Right now I'm running NV Firion (lvl 108 atk 1048); NV Cloud (lol 107 atk 803); Radiant Lightning (lvl100 6*, atk 609), Lotus Mage Fine (lvl 100 6*, mag 247), and Minwu (lvl 100 6*, mag 480). As you can see it's not very impressive atm lol. I'm unable to 7* any units due to lack of materials so far, and similarly unable to awaken my NV units. The other 5* base units I have are Balthier, Ashe, Lunera, Dark Knight Leon x2), Draconian Princess Fina x2, Duke, Regina, Black Mage Golbez, Wild Rose Firion, Dragon Knight Freya, Madamn Edel, Yunalesca, Dethroned Heroine Ashe, Aloha Laswell, and Doctor Aiden. Are any of them worth upgrading and replacing any of the members of my current party? I need a tank with provoke badly, but am unsure if any of those units will work for that. I've got healing and support pretty well filled between Lotus Mage Fina, Minwu (have Cradle of Horns on him for the team 100% def and spr boost plus the 10% dmg reduction) and Radiant Lightning, I'm using NV Cloud and NV Firion to chain, but who can I use as a finisher and as a tank?

    I’ve hit 235 ar chains in the arena with two Elena and Hess lassworm ( triple cast Elena only dual cast lassworm so could be much higher )

    It's also a statistic if you go to menu --> Thropies --> Records ... under Quest

    I seem to have 524 for Most Element Sparks in one turn ::exdeath::

    931 on Element but only 163 on actual max chain as I usually don't run/chain (actually don't own many) AR units

    I thought that was only a visual cap. In DV, a Tifa can do 2.14 by her self and the chain is still runnning

    Welcome back. ::up::

    Glanced through your list of units. Dr Aiden is still a fantastic healer, esp once 7*. Keep some 9000 lapis to use on Monday. Some rainbows coming. ::blackmage::RainbowAnimated

    NV units had changed the game beyond recognition though. You already have Cloud, even Firion. Just borrow another whaley friend's unit, chain, bang, and you would have cleared most trials from the past 3 years. They are that strong. Afterwards, it's just a matter of slowly picking things up.

    P.S. Talking to self - as always, once I stopped buying FoLs, the pulls get worse ... So, dependent on rainbow NVAs now, given that NVB units dont drop just like the 1st NieR banner years ago ... ::rudecat10::
