    Haven’t been on here in a while but man I just wanted to share that for all you FTP (other than fountain of lapis) out there you guys were right.

    The feeling of FOMO is now gone after a few months and now I can just casually play the game with little frustration since I’m no longer financially invested.

    Yeah it sucks not to get the “latest unit” sometimes (IF that would even happen) but it’s made me appreciate the 5 stars I’ve pulled rather than the general off banner sadness once you finally hit a rainbow, especially knowing you have to hit 2 for a seven star.

    Anyways that’s all I’ve got. Hopefully I’ll stay sober.

    Glad to hear it's working out for you! With the right planning and strategic hoarding, you can still get those powerhouse 7 stars. Been FTP since I started 2 years ago and I've got top units for most of the main roles. As long as you pretend that STMRs don't exist or are rewards for your patience, you should be good :D

    Honestly, the content is getting too difficult to Free to play.

    For example I doubt that anyone without Rainbow Whip or Cid is going to beat Gigamesh. (I have cid, but i could only get him down to 10%.)
    I'm sure if you wait a couple months, there will be some power creep units that helps you clear hard content.

    But what sux is, in the mean time, you only get to play half of the content. :/

    Its free to watch other play. Rofl.

    Ps. Just joking. I don't spend much since 2b banner, and I pulled lots of 7* from the free summon. It's still super hard to meet new meta requirements though.

    If you connect daily and take more time planning each fight, you can clear all content while being FtP.
    Just dont try One Turn Kill technique. Ok, fight Will be really long with tanky stuff but you can do it (took me ~40 turn for gilga and ~80 for scorn of ifrit but did it while spending only 3€ in the game from start)

    Think of it as a game with some random factor instead of a lotery game, and most important : have fun. Thats way you won t be desepointed by crappy banner week ;)

    @RaagisEd Wish they pay me in lapis, since its seems be even more expensive than us dollar. ::vplaugh::

    Sorry bro, I'm just being honest. The late content is way too hard for Free to Play to beat. Its delusional to think otherwise. Sure, there's some guide vdo with no stmr, no 7* or whatever, but they still use tons of required equipments to beat it. Most players won't have half of the stuffs.

    You can't just generalize like this. Not every FTP has the same stuff, far from it. If you are a long-term FTP, you may very well have tons of great equipments, and depending on your luck, all the great units. I'm sure that you will find a ton of FTPs in this forum who have beaten every boss to this day.

    That's with cid which is hard enough, not counting all the gears you need on him/others.

    So like I said, ftp will have really tough time beating the new content. The only choice is to wait for power creep to overpower the old content.

    To be fair, this content (Scorn of Gilgamesh) is supposed to be a difficult and challenging one. And only once in a long time that we get something this difficult. Giving that we get easy/casual contents pretty much every week, I think it is fair to get a challenging one once in a while. Even the next trials released, Dark Shiva&Golem or Asura are not as difficult as Gilgamesh. I don't think just Gilgamesh accounts for that much of contents as you said. May be 5% at most. (I think is even less than that).

    Granted, I cannot say the following that well since I am not free2play, but I clear Gilgamesh with out Cid or Rainbow Whip too (one STMR used, Nyx's) . Those two make the trial easier, it is definitely not a requirement.

    there is video of youtube out there
    i use @volcom balthier.
    both of us have 300 man eater and 1,9K atk.
    chain with DC flood from CG nichole and that Vericous current from leviathan tree and i cap it from 85.

    its RNG demage tho.
    15- 60x modifer per shot and increment for 15, 2 - 4 shot.
    and if DW, 4 - 8 shot.
    also youycan imbue and have -120% ele resist

    so, the lowest demage you can get
    4 shot : 15, 30, 45, 60 : 150x modifier
    the highest?
    8 shot : 65 x 8 : 520x modifier
    and with 300% man eater + -120 ele resist?
    boom :D
