    Curious to hear if you've been grinding the World story with this half energy event and where everyone is?

    I hadn't paid attention to the story for a long time but got my way to Season 3, Chapter 5, Part 3 (released last November). I haven't had time to read my way through it tho (such SLOW transitions!). Mostly just skipping and gathering lapis. I wouldn't mind a text cliff notes version.

    Caught up to "to be continued...". It was difficult, and I wasn't sure I was gonna make it out alive a few times, but I did. At least the stages can be auto'ed for the most part

    Make it alive because of boredom or cuz somwhere there's difficult content?

    I'm using a TMR team and have Summer Parasol on a couple units to make sure the esper gage fills and LB boost items on 1 unit to make sure a LB fills.

    In all honesty I have draco princess fina normal mode is 5100 mag or so and brave shift is 5800 anything even remotely ummm “worrisome” evaporates in story mode. the powercreep of trials to story isn’t even remotely anything to think about. in the rare event something is mag immune vaan blasts it starting with the 85% breaks xD, just gathering lapis to me as the story has nothing to explore anymore what so ever.

    I've been plowing up the story since I came back, I'm now now near the end of Season 2 (I think?) in Grandore. Going to get as far as I can before maintenance for the extra lapis.

    Haven't done the World story with this half energy event nor any others for about the last 11 months, apparently, lol.

    Finished Season 3, Chapter 2 (released 30-April-2020) very shortly after it was available, and I've been sitting in the Expanse since, having not even entered the World of Couleur. Through Chapter 2, I paid a much lessened amount of but still some attention to the story cutscenes, however battles were 100% "skip dialogue, hit 'repeat' and gather lapis."

    Upside, I've got almost 32K lapis waiting for me. Downside, that's over 12 days worth of NRG (non-discounted) and more importantly almost that much RL time spent trying to hammer through interstitial screens. ::rofl::

    That's what I figured you meant but wasn't sure....
    Don't get me wrong, I'd like to read the story. After all that's what I got into the game for originally. But at such a slow pace I don't have time. And the little bit I've read of S3 hasn't been exactly riveting.

    The story finally came around substantially, despite your typical barrage of clichés and subpar dialogue. I honestly liked several moments, and I sincerely hope the finale becomes one big pay-off for those of us who bothered to keep up with the plot.

    Managed to get a few 4* TMRs via pure daily "3 Story" missions, seriously. "Farming" that plant killing from that black Chocobo 4* guy right now, although already thinking that moogling 4 more Plant-killers seems better ... ::thonk::

    To be NRG efficient, do the new stories only during 1/2 NRG weeks. Slowly, you will catch up to the latest stories "normally", 3 story daily mission-ly. (English is just such a language that i am sure you all understand me, ha. ::blackmage:: )

    I am on Vlad right now. Last stages of season 2 and I enjoyed it overall
    I am doing it slow because I want then to release the season 3 characters so I can play the story with it's them on my team. As I did with s1 and 2.
    Hope at least Fina Bruce and Rinora make up for it in the beginning
    Season 2 becomes way too easy when Rain and Lasswell turn to kings though

    I'm at the end of s2 inside Vlad atm, but just couldn't bare it. There's this giant going around and nuking the world, and then literally every 5 minutes someone is like: Whar are your feeling guys? What will you do when this is over? ...

    I stopped at second dungeon of the Dwindling World (had to grind like 15 dungeons this time in order to get the full circle of Vinera summons). I never skipped dialogues since I’m always curious what Physalis will bring next time. You can call her a hero.

    Mind you, my TMR team is made up of some NV and 7* dupes that would be "nice" to have, but not essential TMRs.
    I've almost never done that daily mission either...

    Kudos for you, using story characters for story. That keeps things fun.

    Physalis and Sol were always my favorite characters to follow-along. When I had time. Made me laugh.
