    I feel like it is best to run any premium NV units you have through shard dungeon. All three (Aerith, Sephi, Tifa) are at EX+2, barely. So the full cycle won't get them to EX+3. But it will start the process. I'm also considering COW based units, like Skye (EX+2 on the nose), Louise (just pulled, at EX+1), Ling (EX+2), Bulwark (EX+1), etc. Open to suggestions. Ultimately, here is what I'm thinking:

    Tifa
    Sephiroth
    Aerith
    Louise
    Ibara (hoping for Halloween love ... almost EX+2)

    Would Vivi be better than Ibara?

    Similar thoughts and situation. ::up::

    The dungeon will get my off-banner Sephiroth and Tifa to EX+2, so that's a done deal. (Edit: Aerith is already at EX+2 on the nose, and will likely never see EX+3 unless she stalks me like her first version; if I could use OG Aerith frags she'd be all set, lol.)

    Then I'm left deciding what other newish but no longer top-tier units (Vivi, Ardyn, Noctis, Zidane, etc.) are worth getting 70 shards to EX+2, or whether I should instead bring a bunch of units that are 10-20 shards short of their next level, or just start collecting toward EX+3 for the morale units that I have. :confused:

    Same. I will run 3 ff7r units. We still need to see whether premium unit shards will be nerf or not
    For other i will run ling and louise. If i'm not making a stupid mistake (like forgot to do it), maybe i can +3 louise and ling on the 6th day then i will have option for this month cow

    For your case, i will run ibara through dungeon. Maybe she will get some buff next month (i doubt it, but still...)

    I will probably run Aphmau to get her to ex3...for reasons ::joy::

    Other than that, maybe ygni, even though that dungeon will not be enough to ex3
    Need to look at my current NV collection::thonk::

    Have you slowed your whale roll? I thought you had most NV units at EX+3 already... ::whale::::whale::::whale::

    If it is a unit i like i will definitely get her ex3, if is not, i might get one for the collection or not pull at all.
    For example i ended with ex2 cyan purely from off banners.
    The thing about whaling is that sooner or later you will get all the units, even if you don't pull for them so i tend to be selective about going overboard for an unit.

    I don't care about Aphmau that much but i want to test COW with her for fun, hence why I am running her at all
    Also, i joke about the whale thing mostly, i don't whale as much as some people think i do
    Although my amount of NV obtained is catching up to my amount of 7* awoken

    Only tifa and sep to ex3 (this time tifa only). All other with ex2 is enough for me unless i get some copies of them.

    Going with shards for Seph (halfway to EX3) and Tifa (who will get EX2), EX2 for Locke, EX1 for Raina, and EX3 for CD Aerith, Terra, and Louise. That is, if they don't make the premium units drop a lower amount of shards than this is the plan.

    My priority would be,

    1. Premium unit towards EX+1 or 2
    2. CoW unit towards EX+1 or 2
    3. Tank / Support unit towards EX+1 or 2 for CoW
    4. Unit towards EX+1 for VC or EX+2 for STMR
    5. Premium / CoW unit towards EX+3

    Damage and STMR wise, Vivi is better than Ibara. But Vivi needs Steiner for the reflects setup. Ibara still solid for capped FTKO mage stages for me.

    Priority 1 : Ex+3 Sephiroth (Missing 50 shards)
    Priority 2 : Ex+2 Louise (Missing 20 shards)
    Priority 3 : Advance Tifa to Ex+3 (missing 198(...) shards)
    Priority 4 : Advance Ling to ex+3 (Missing 100 shards)
    After that I could do Nichol (70 shards for ex+2), Noppy (50 shards for ex+2)

    Out of sheer boredom, I had mapped out the entire shard dungeon day-by-day play 2 weeks back.
    Sephiroth EX+2 (70 shards)
    Louise EX EX+2 (50 shards)
    White Dragon Ling EX+2 (50 shards)
    Faris EX+2 (35 shards)
    OM Lunafreya or Terra (50 shards) (Still undecided!)
    Locke EX+2 (35 shards)
    Remake Aerith EX+2 (5 shards)
    Physalis EX+1 (5 shards)
    Sol EX+1 (5 shards)
    Melo EX+1 (20 shards)
    Reno EX+0 (25 shards)

    No spot wasted

    Carbuncle in certain scenario (cow) might work as well ;)
