    Lookie lookie at what Goomie did. 25k lapis for a pretty nice, but limited VC. Kinda feels like they're gettin' desperate for people to pull on banners.


    That card would be nice, Tulien's card would be nice and I wouldn't complain about Tulien himself, tho I want plannin' to pull for him. But with Grahf comin', I dunno if I should save or go for it. Currently have somethin' like 35k, and haven't done the newest story yet so maybe 38-39k? -25k = 13-14k (eww). Makes me concerned that 'ol premium Grahf, needin' 60k lapis, will be here before I could save up enough. So does anyone know when abouts he should drop? Think I'd have enough time to save? Credit card will not be swiped for lapis so....

    According to the JP schedule it should be soon. But we don’t always get collabs and I’m not sure they will do this one. Also, I could be wrong but I don’t believe Grahf fell into the premium side of JP. I could be wrong but I thought he was just limited time.

    And by soon I mean in JP it was released the week after Tulien. So time to save? If we are on JP schedule nope.

    Well damn. I guess I can wait to see next week. That card won't make or break in the coming week regardless ;)

    I thought I saw someone say he was premium. If not, that's mucho better-o.

    Thanks for the info ::up::

    Grahf isn't a premium unit so only need about 40k for pity. Probably will same like Legend of Mana step-up with Id and Grahf banners.

    The limited VC isn't necessary needed imo. But it is a really good bargain considering a physical dps need EX+3 to get the 500 ATK bonus and also the same with premium units VC.

    Right. It's really nice, and I like nice things lol, and gettin' a Tulien and his card would be nice too. With Grahf being regular banner, that takes some heat off. I'll wait to see what next week's news has in store and decide.

    I so wanna go find that post (different forum) where that dude said he was premium. Got me all worked up and plannin' for 60k. A-hole :mad:

    Yea I was thinking this. With Grahf due and this essentially a mandatory 25k sink, and the shard dungeon here like 2 months early, it suggests Grahf is due so we dont have as much lapis and then cant shard him so we pull more lol

    Time-limited AND premium would be real f***ery, indeed. So yeah, I don't think it'd be that but don't take my word for it, lol.

    I also want to drop the lapis stash on the ol' Xenos, but I like the idea of kind of making a "budget ex+3" out of an ex+2, so I might do the lap for the card and have some wiggle room for the coming banner.

    The VC is very good, but I don't think it is worth 25k lapis exclusively for it. There are very few units that really wants this VC. Compared to a 125 ATK VC, it is just 130 more ATK at 300% buff. 130 ATK is far from being an upgrade worth 25k lapis.
    So it would be only worth something for TDH FFBE units that don't cap their Equip ATK.

    The only really good FFBE TDH units currently are Taivas, Tulien that will come together with it and Karten if you want to go TDH with him. And in the future there will be Knights of Grandshelt that will want this one until you get his own VC at EX+3, and unless we get some GLEX that also wants this card besides their own, no one else would be really caring that much for this VC.

    Well, I did it and I don't feel good about myself, lol.
    Oh well.
    It's:
    25% Large Sword Break for 4 turns.
    120 Imperil to Fire and Earth for 4 turns.

    25 and 120 are not groundbreaking but the 4 turns is nice.

    P.S. got Summoner Yuna (not paying to build)
    Second Aphmau.
    2x Cloemo/Star so mine can STMR, whoot.
    Bunch of 5*s I haven't checked yet.
    (Finally got Luneth's STMR... Years later, lol)

    Happy RNG to you all!

    Oh man, I'm liking this card less and less for that 25k price tag. Sounding more like a 10-15k card to me. But then again I'm not a top scorer either. 1 and done for this fella :)

    I got it just because. Its very neat to have a Bit of flexibility if u wanna Turn tdw into tdh. For Karten it was way worth it. Now he has More than enough room for Killers With an tdh Build.
    Along the way i got 8 nvs. Mostly just dupes and 2 Tulien. The Best was an behemy to Ex3 finally.
    I Thought about it. 25k is very much. But i invested 60k for Seph and alot More tix. But use other finisher More Often. So thinking about it, 25k seemed to be the better Deal.

    I don’t even use Seph anymore. I hate gearing chainers for dark and sr chains require too much precision or else they break. Angela has replaced him, non-elemental finishers all the way. As for chainers, I opt for BS.

    As for the VC I’m passing. I’m not supporting obvious bait tactics. Luckily I got 2 taivas off tickets because it’s been pretty dull banner wise since Maeve and ToM.

    Do we know what the greatsword and earth/fire auto-imperils are on it, yet? I can't seem to locate it post-maintenance.

    I kinda want to do the stepup for lack of anything else to do, and that it has a guaranteed result. However, I'm damned if I can see any meaningful value for any unit other than F. Karten, which I don't have. (Disclaimer: I have one of Lara's card and will have other 125s "soon"ish, frag challenges willing.) Taivas doesn't seem to *really* want most of this card's extras. I wouldn't be surprised tho if the next GLEX unit wants it all.
