    Nah, cuz we’re getting Cid, GUMI thinks we can handle True Aigaion, then True Bloody Moon, then Shinryu

    Ignore the fact that Cid can’t help with True Bloody Moon

    The exclusive reward don't look great...
    The hammer can be useful once in a while if there is really the fire resistance I guess (not specified in the in-game news), but the accessory... especially if it need to get crafted. Don't we have better jump dmg bonus accessories already?

    Currently, there is only 1. Dragoon Gauntlet (100% jump damage boost). With Cid's banner, the 3* unit has an accessory tmr with +30 ATK & 50% jump damage boost.

    A bit tired from those story events. They are mostly just boring. I think the only recent one I really enjoyed was Sieg‘s.

    Although the Wiki says the Giga Rat is the same as the Siegfried event, it's not. Here's what I've noticed is different:

    -boss casts charm, not stop
    -various status effects hit your party, not just disease
    -the boss has an all-new meteor attack which will wipe you if you aren't ready. I'm not sure when it comes out but it might be every few turns or on thresholds and I think magic cover might be necessary for that attack. That means you need a (100% evade) physical tank that can also magic cover, or two tanks

    needing to craft the story event gear is the new normal now. going forward we will need to collect mats to craft the equipment. however, you should get enough mats naturally by going through all the stages with a little light farming.

    If i remember japan well enough (i quit about 5 months ago) you should only be able to craft the main item once, but the other item as much as you want to farm for. so for this event, 1 wrench and multiple boots i think.

    some like dragoon's gauntlet(high jump %100 jump damage) The stoss spear also gives high jump buff and I don't think they stack, and stoss spear is best non-element spear and has best damage range for spears. Wings give %50 jump and come with 30 attack too, the boots give %50 so don't bother crafting them...

    Hmm, to get the 50 levistone fragments alone, one would need to run the 85 nrg stage four times, cos one run would only give 16 stones. I ran story events with xon, And yes the fourth run would give u useless extras.

    Finally got my clear, it took me a while because I was using Balthier or Veritas of the Flame before and they couldn't kill the Giga Rat fast enough before he got me with his meteor. My team:

    Merc Ramza - 100% evade
    Knight Delita
    Rena
    Reberta - Crimson Blood/Vernard
    Zargabaath - 75% all element resist, 65% passive provoke

    On odd turns, Ramza covered physical, Delita broke, and Reberta used her timed jump. On even turns, Ramza and Delita chained with their fire element Raging Inferno and Reberta finished the chain. Rena and Zarg buffed. All missions clear on battle 1 and 2, could only get the No Items on battle 3. It was fun to trot out my original support/chaining team for this one!
