    63 refill pots. What do you guys think? Is setting priorities better than panicly (does that word even exist? i get strange headaches looking at it) riding through the castle with alls weapons? :-/

    I think the word is "panickedly", which is also a headache in and of itself. ::doink::

    I do prioritize my weapons. Usually I try to run my first priority weapon until I get the rare ability. Sometimes I get bored of rolling that weapon, then I switch to my second priority weapon and get the rare on the first run with it. Then I curse my good fortune, and go back to the first priority weapon again. ::salt::::bard::

    Unofficially. ::kefka::

    Sephi's enhancements have been announced, so moogling a Masamune (FFVII) for him and running that through. Other katans, might rerun Muramasa (FFBE), flip a Virtuous Contract back to ATK, and maybe do Genji Blade just for s&g since I recently finally pulled a dupe Gilgamesh for 7*.

    Greatsword-wise, Excalibur (FFBE) is just waiting for me to make (and maybe enhance, I don't recall) Ultima Sword (FFVII). Given that, no point to re-run Lightbringer (FFBE) or Revolving Saw. :-/ I guess it's still worth it to make/run Thunder God's Sword for DW purposes. Also, I suppose I should do Asterisk, though that may lessen my chances of ever getting the bunny girl, lol.

    Lust Dagger (FFIII) for High Tide and that's probably it for that weapon type unless they let me restack Bowie Knife. >:-0

    Not sure I'm going for anything at all from Throwing weapons. The new Egg(s), maybe.

    Same here. I pick two I focus on, and then keep 1-3 backups incase I get lucky.
    Masamune (Use on Akstar. If I can get +30% ATK on this one, I can hit the 2650 ATK mission with Esther)
    Lionheart (general use for Esther)
    Asterisk
    Lust Dagger

    Muramasa FFBE
    Revolving Saw

    Yeah, Esther's extra 100% DH and the 50% Passive on the sword make a huge difference and clear a lot of space for ATK% materia. Now I just need Suzume's Kimono, Bombadier's Bicorn, and either Katana Mastery +30% on the Masamune, or Disparate Swordsman and +10%.

    I'm hoping to pull a Gravey, it'll make the IW much simpler.

    200% moogle for the sake of unlocking the quest sounds irrational but yea, it's an accomplishment.


    Moogle lionheart soon for IW
    Then asterisk
    Then Excalibur

    This is probably the wrong place to ask this question, but I have yet to find a thread to. Why is esther bis lion heart? Lb guage fill is only for squall.... or is it? Assuming you were unlucky enough to pull 4 cloud wouldn't ultima weapon(FF7) be better?::comeatme::
    Edit: added a question mark where appropriate

    IMO, Bahamut tear is her BIS (but it is time limited)
    then goes down to 4 x cloud for ultima weapon (unless you've played long enough + lucky enough)
    then goes down to single squall for his lion heart

    that's why people recommend/using lionheart : easy to access, practical and it is a lionheart!

    I wouldn't necessarily consider being trolled by cloud 4× lucky.... ultima weapon is a concession for such bad luck::ink::

    Hmm...
    Lionheart, Muramasa, Lust Dagger would be my main aim.

    And 30% SPR for Holy Wand and Unholy Grimoire each for SPR 2.0 mission.

    Should be something like this,

    Ayaka 7★
    Right hand: Holy Wand ATK+16, SPR+120, SPR+30% (IW :SPR +10%, SPR +15%, SPR +5%)
    Left hand: Unholy Grimoire MP+10%, SPR+98, SPR+30% (IW :SPR +15%, SPR +10%, SPR +5%)
    Head: Frozen Crown HP+500, DEF+16, SPR+50
    Body: Robe of Forgiveness HP+10%, DEF+30, SPR+55
    Accessory 1: Genji Glove ATK+10%, MAG+10%
    Accessory 2: Kihana's Necklace SPR+45
    Materia 1: Staff Mastery SPR+50%
    Materia 2: Adventurer V ATK+40%, DEF+40%, MAG+40%, SPR+40%
    Materia 3: Barrier Mage's Oath SPR+50%
    Materia 4: Hero's Vow - Light SPR+60%
    Esper: Carbuncle HP+72, MP+103, ATK+35, DEF+85, MAG+72, SPR+116, SPR+10%
    Total: HP:9088, MP:735, ATK:325, DEF:465, MAG:389, SPR:1859

    No STMR. Though, getting Gilgamesh and Citra is hard since they are 5* base. The rest gears should be easy to get. And Ayaka needs full SPR build 3* Carbuncle.
