    Will probably go with a friend unit physical tank, I'm way too lazy to regear my evade MRamza.

    Looks like an easy bonus stage...Intangir is EZPZ and Terror Knight can be killed in 1turn no problem...

    @Carnefix Minor correction in your boss outline: Experiment's eject is only 3 turns, not permanent.

    Just a heads-up, Dragoons might not work here since their jump up seems to trigger Intangir. Please someone correct me if I’m wrong!

    Got it! My team:

    Basch - 100% evade
    Ayaka - Genji Shield, Holy Wand, Pod 153
    Zargabaath - Genji Armor, light element weapon
    2B - Virtuous Contract, light element weapon
    Ace - Safety Bit, light element weapon
    Ayaka (friend, not needed but why not)

    Battle 1 - Cast Reraise on as many people as I could, filled Esper gauge with Ace, summoned esper, cast raise on the boss

    Battle 2 - Basch covered physical except on thresholds where he covered magic, 2B broke the boss, Ace with his LB finished Pod/Octoslash chains for damage. This one took a while.

    Battle 3 - On sleeping turns Basch used physical cover, Ayakas healed and gave HP barriers, Zargabaath buffed, 2B used Pod Charge or Avoid, Ace used Force Hand. On waking turns Ayaka used Dispel, 2B used breaks, Ace used Tri-Beam Laser for damage, Zargabaath buffed. Summoned an esper on the last turn for the kill mission.

    Not too bad and I was happy and surprised that Ace turned out to be my main damage dealer. 6 of 9 missions! Back to the Chamber of Experience for the rest of the week.

    These bugs are killing me. The story sections keep dying and then when you log back in it says 'Already Ended' and boots me from the game. argh!

    Giving up can solve the problem but you have to do it all over again.

    Yeah, figured that one out. Got all the way through the fighting parts and then it dumps me during the wrap up scene. Reload -> continue -> 'Already finished' -> dump -> repeat about 3 times before I have up and didn't continue. Redo it, miss 1 objective, finish fine. Redo for missing objective, final scene dump again. aRGH!

    I too have this. 180 NRG so far wasted on chapter 1.

    No UoC for me this event. No lapis. No more play I guess. Was just starting to try to get back into the groove of playing, even in the very buggy state.

    Most of the bugs with this story event are avoided if the app is not closed while a story dungeon is in progress.

    I don't close at any point. It closes itself after the cutscenes.

    Didn´t start story event yet, but bonus stage seems like i just can brain afk it with my main team again, derp. Snort will be obsolote, since i can just power through his wind resist via Prishe Special and don´t even have to use fire.

    Loren friend available -> will be lol anyway.

    Itangir(Scorn obviously)... will propably do nothing nowadays to me. But i remember how it was back then, when i didn´t had any decent phys and magical tank^^

    Boring Story Event. After the last Bonus Stage this seems easy with lm Fina.

    It's doing that to me on the 4th part. I might have to uninstall and reinstall.

    Edit: had to quit and restart the stage and it works

    Edit2: Not working! Or actually, it randomly works or doesn't. I have to quit (and not resume), loosing the nrg spent and then it's random whether it'll work again or not. Using ios. Did it on the 45 and 65 nrg levels so far. I won't play unless an update comes up. Back to TM farming.

    I have never played an event this broken before. I've spent the last two hours on the first part of the story, and every single time I run into the "This has already ended." bug, usually when I'm almost done. This is seriously frustrating. I want that dang UOC ticket, but it's starting to look a little bit impossible at the moment.
