    Just curious, cuz I just spent 2.5 hours repeating 2-1 til my ar chain connected without breaking. That's all I got so far with near perfect scores. (Getting full scores on stage 1, took me like 2 nights.)

    Is this normal for everyone? Cuz at this rate, I probably won't have enough time to do them all perfectly. I actually freed up my scheduled last weekend to do a revenge on DV, and we all know what happened. Gumi internkun striked again.

    ::ink::

    PS. They are extending the event to this weekend right? I won't have time during weekdays. Too much work..::silence::

    Well, phase 1 got about 1.5 hours total from me, the next two phases won’t get much more sadly because I just don’t have that much time to spare right now. I can get 5 minutes free quite often through the day but that isn’t enough to even start with a DV level.

    I usually just do 1-3 tries per stage, ~10 min setup. Then after I'm all done I'll go back and see if there are any I can make a significant improvement on. Helps to mix it up a bit.

    So I'm the only one who can't chain properly?
    Dang it, just as I thought. This event is hell for me. I could do soft reset to get high number chain on bosses once a week for ftko. But DV requires you to get perfect chain on like 15 stages in one week.

    This is freakin impossible for me.

    I've been having a lot of trouble AR chaining this DV, not sure why. The best seems to be 3 people 2x casting AR. What I've been doing (probably won't work for the last few stage 3s) is 99+ chain turn 1, buff turn 2, and elly/cid finish on turn 3. So happy the points for # of turns is gone lol.

    I treat DV like a homework lol.

    6 days before the end of DV : "There is still lot of time, I'll just do DV later"

    a day before the end of DV " Oh no! Tomorrow will be maintenance! Quick! gonna Finish All DV right now! aaaa!"

    me everytime I do DV, and I hate broken chain too especially CW and CWA chains, everytime I see 1-1-1-1 I soft reset until I dont see that anymore.

    Eh, about 40 minutes for each set. As long as I get 1m points and sub 10k rank, I'm okay.

    The whole thing would take me 2-3 hours if I wasn't doing anything else. After that, I'm satisfied getting into top 10k for that 5* EX ticket.

    Around 20 minutes for stage 1

    Then 1 or one and half hour for stage 2 (damn preemptive strike)

    Then 40-50 minutes for the last stage.


    Out of topic question, do people really use multiple-cast AR in DV for chain score?
    Because I never done it and do fine.

    Regis happens to give killers for most common dv races and he also gives ar chains, so yeah.

    I mean, like using w-cast AR when DW. Isn't that easy to break?

    Just git gud::rudecat13:: or use macros. I really don't have issues with w-cast of AR, maybe my phone is just too shitty::rudecat18::

    I just get 1m points for the UoC, it takes me a few hours to do all 3 areas and I'm done. I get top 10k but I wont bother with this event a lot cuz every stage just reminds me of equipment and units i DONT have.

    W-cast makes the chain break? Really? Cuz I always w-cast, even with dual wield characters..

    Cw, cwa is out of the question for me. Never get them to connect chains for multi-cast. So my mage army is pretty useless for this.

    It feels like eternity. But ideally one day per stage. This is all without reruns unless I don't hit the 1mill point mark for the second UOC. First DV I had to redo some easier stage to get more points to hit the 1 mill mark. Second DV I didn't have to so I just stopped when I am done.

    To be honest, I guess I just need to invest more into DV (units and equipment wise). Because so many people here just pretty nonchalantly finish DV with some great scores. I'm sitting here struggling to hit 1 mill and make the 10k and below rank. But even with FFBE equip and save and load function. It still can take me a few hours. As of right now I haven't can't beat stage 2-5 yet. That bird is too tanky. I don't even have fun on DV like most. I get so stressed out when I see DV as an event coming up. I hate having to min max mainly because it will require time to get units/gear. Time that I just don't have with work schedule.
