    Trying to avoid the megaelixir syndrome. Haven’t used a single one so far. So looking at JP famitsu list these units are top with 24 points:

    Arden(?)
    Elephim
    WoL
    Elnath
    ALasswell
    Ceodore
    Ursula
    Vivi
    Freya
    Lilizet(?)

    Can prob justifiably add current Galuf and Lenna who are on 23 to the list due to them being best at what they do non-dps

    So fair to say not a huge amount left of great UoC’able units?

    Now there are current Halloween(?) units that put Akstar and Rain versions quite high but am sure those aren’t UoC’able either (can someone confirm?)

    Any uoc’able stmr people want to suggest? For now I see

    Malphasie
    Karlette
    Locke

    Would think the optimal strategy is to provision to have 7* Lenna, one or both of WoL/Galuf. Then the rest can probably go towards STMRs already? Guess FOMO spare 20 in case another UoC’able GLEX but those tend to get special love banner wise anyway.

    Now if only expert missions are confirmed...

    Thoughts?

    Before blowing all of your UoC, you should wait until there's an official announcement saying that Summon Fest units cant be UoC. We really dont know if GL is going to do the same thing as JP. With the addition of showing how many tickets are needed for each unit, the fact that we've gotten way fewer UoC than JP, and that Gumi has said they're doing Summon Fest differently, it's possible that we're just going to need more tickets for Summon Fest units.

    So blowing them all now isnt a great idea.

    Totally agree with this. There is at least a potential based on the evidence you just laid out that summon fest units will be UOCable, even if it is for a higher number of UOC tickets. I wouldn’t blow any UOC’s until we know for sure.

    The "UoC is dead" is very overated. There are still UoC worth units, specially with SBB/Latent abilities bringing up some older units to Meta levels.

    There is no point in looking ahead with a microscope. This is a different game then JP and 90% of the time the best units here are not the same as JP’s best units.

    Your first mistake was to check famitsu.
    This is something funny.
    Sieghart is still the best unit, Charlotte is still the best unit, Lenna is still the best unit, Lightning was the best unit at some point. Fid is competing with Kryla to be the best breaker.
    The only thing that truly changes from time to time is dps.

    What I would do, to avoid the megalixir syndrome, but still conserve tickets in case summon fest needs 20 per unit or something, is maybe pick one unit you really like and who would make you happy, and get him/her. This way you see some tangible benefit from all these hard earned tickets, and in case you need them later on, well 10 tickets spent now will still leave you with over forty, I presume, enough to double-double UoC any unit.

    Lol glex buff making them even better for example cg lightning.People were skeptical about cg bartz not getting buff on his damage but look where he is now just cruising through the trial.

    That’s true. Would not be at all surprised if we get a new GLEX support/breaker/tank that becomes best in game though.

    You can speculate all you want on which JP units to hoard for, but other JP units that weren’t good there might be good here (KFina), the JP unit that was good in JP might get delayed and powercrept immediately on arrival here, or we could have an Esther/ Zeno situation at any time where a GLEX comes out of nowhere and flips the meta on its head.

    Good idea to have a somewhat rough knowledge of what’s coming when, but it’s ALWAYS subject to change here vs JP.

    Famitsu is a decent way to list out upcoming non-rubbish I guess. Yes the scores can be rubbish I agree tho on relative scale in the same role it’s not so bad.

    Now I do ignore dps entirely anyway (hence mention galuf n lenna for best in roles). And I still see fairly limited units I would want out of that list.

    Thanks. More looking at STMR though tbh. Need 2 for malph’s is the most immediate itch :-P

    Guess the hoarding continues for now
