    Please enlighten me!

    Let's say I have an NVB I would be able to awaken as I have the shards...

    nope. You will always get 2 spares with a regular ex+3 awakening, which will happen sooner or later. I would rather use this than wasting 5k for a single pearl.

    It would be worth if gumi implemented the damn shard farming daily, since you would inevitably ends with more shards to EX awaken than pearls.

    But as it stand now? basically the only reliable source for NV base shards is breaking dupes, since getting shards elsewhere is ridiculous costly. And breaking dupes gives you the pearl you need anyways.

    Based on the drop rates, you know how hard to get an on-banner dupe with 5k lapis. From that standpoint I'd say it's worth it.

    And for the unit's worth let's just say you simply love the character and want to make it better and stronger.

    Thought of it right at the start, when things are not so clear for us GLers.

    But what victorsant said here is the logical conclusion. I cheated and didnt vote too, ha. ::kefka::

    From this stand point I’d agree... but future expanded nv odds and full 10+1 on a hot topic must have unit? Nah just do what your feelings tell ya lol if you want the unit in question +1 or +2 then go for it no regrets!

    My real answer would be no, hope for another chance. A better bundle, free chance, etc. 5k laips isn't worth it just for the pearl.

    As with all things, the answer is, it depends :P If it's for NVA, definitely not worth it.

    If it's for NV, EX+2 and up, not worth it.

    If it's for NV EX+1, and you have the shards, that generally means you wanted the unit enough to pull at least twice, otherwise with our current banners, I don't think you'd be able to get enough shards without either getting lucky on both panel summons, or using 2 coins in the shop. Next step of the decision tree, how much lapis do you have stashed? Everyone's 'safety stash' definition will be different, for me, if i have over 100k, and this is a unit I really like which has a useful BS form, then I would spend it without thinking twice. If my lapis stash is lower than that, I would probably think it over a bit more. Every unit is different, as some are useless without BS (like Yoshi, Tifa), whereas you won't use it at all on some like PG Lasswell. Some are borderline like Elena, where her BS form is only really needed for killers. Vision card is also another consideration, is it meta level?

    Anyways, just sharing my decision process. If this is an actual situation for you now, let us know what unit you're considering, and I think folks will provide more opinions :D
