    So, for those who haven't noticed, on 7/2 we are getting a few hundred additional slots for units and for equipment. I'm hungry for slots (but not slots-de-choco) and I hate paying for them.

    Right now, I have a few bits of equipment hanging out in the mailbox (No DV this weekend meant I had time to try Mad Doll and Scorn of Lich as well as a few others that were less successful) and I was planning on using the expansion vouchers from the daily quests for space for those on Wednesday. I have slots for them all but I'm keeping them in the mail just in case something else takes up that space between now and then. And those can wait until the expansions on Thursday. I don't need most of it this very moment. Plus I'm also 1 from max on units, and would prefer to use the vouchers there.

    And I will need to! I haven't used my anniversary tickets yet or bought my 11 rainbows yet or used my DV blue tickets yet or the EX from yesterday or from the raid... I have like 40 pulls and 13+ rainbows waiting on slots.

    I only get one anni ticket because new and I'm cool with that, but I'm sure that if I pull that or the 11 rainbows I will need to expand. And I'm so stingy that I'm actually considering waiting until Thursday morning to pull on anything instead of spending the 100-200 lapis on slots today.

    Even if vouchers are way easier to come nowadays, I would still use Lapis for inventory space so I don't get stuck, especially on units. It's worth the investment.

    That sounds reasonable. Very reasonable in fact.

    Of course, this whole thread starts from me sharing my neuroses with the world, so your well considered advice is going to fall on deaf ears. Full marks for trying, though!

    So far, I've kept 150 quest coins on hand at the end of each month to be able to buy vouchers right away on the 1st. I do not regret this in the slightest and would consider this to be functionally the same as getting 500 extra lapis a month.

    But again, this is me being my own brand of gluten-free muesli, bat-guano levels of shelled almonds, trail mix without any dried fruit in it, a walking allergen warning... you get the idea.

    Oh! And I have realized that if I pull last thing on Wednesday right before maintenance, the new slots will come in before I wake up and I won't have to wait until Thursday, but also won't have to buy slots... Actually that plan might be a bit much even for me. Might. I'll let you know after I've done it.

    After the first Anniversary, I used up every single lapis that year on slots. Totally worth it!
