    So I've been working on Aileen and Veritas of the Heaven's TMRs since Aileen's enhancements were announced, but today I got lucky enough to pull an Elfreeda (WOO!). I have Cloud, and I've been working on his TMR a little as well, but I'm not sure if I should continue dedicatedly working on TMRs for Aileen, or if I should switch tactics and focus on Cloud and Elfreeda.

    I know Cloud and Elfreeda's TMRs are important for the current and future meta, but I have four VotH, and Aileen is already at nearly 30% TMR, so it would take less time to get their TMRs.

    Suggestions would be GREAT.

    My vote is for you to obtain the TDH gear 1st. It will boost many units, not just Aileen and her TMR.

    And i say get Aileens spear, because cloud is a finisher, she's a chainer. If you can't BiS your finisher and have no good chainers, you won't be happy with TDH & 1 Elfreeda Tmr. Though i don't know how many Aileens or chainer you have.

    I've got a 1200+ attack Onion Knight as my primary chainer, and if I need a finisher I use Nyx. I've got two Aileens, but I've only got enough materials to enhance one, so I'm just going to focus on her for now.

    if you are going to use nyx and you have the Fixed dice build, TDH is the way to go. So with that new knowledge, if you have 2 Aileens they can chain with a REALLY BIG 1 hit finish, and Nxy is that guy for that finish with TDH/fixed dice. Good luck in whatever choice you make.

    Couldn't you grind all 4 units at once?

    1) Cloud sucks.
    2) You need two Elfreeda to make him not suck.
    3) 7*s are eight-ish months away. And they all want twins too Basil, twins.
    4) I would work on Aileen as she doesn't suck and while DPS still fills roles differently than OK. And I believe in 8 months she is into two Elfreedas too.

    Edit: I kind of misunderstood, but I like my list and I would still work on Aileen.

    Depends on how you farm your TMRs. Macro? I would get the gear for aileen. TDH might be very future proof, but finishers are not truly needed at present. The VoH TMR can be used on others if you have another spear user, it can even compliment the TDH gear using the event item "zodiac spear" from last summer. It is a 2 hand spear with 130 or so attack. Then you stack the VoH material on top of that for good hard hits. I have 1 elfreeda and she is in my TMR team at the moment, but it is more for the LB orbs and +40 atk than it is for the DH aspect of it.

    It is an important part of the squad I am making for LB farming. My goal is to be able to use 1 lb every round while causing no damage to an enemy at all. Basically turn it on and walk away, come back later and end battle to collect LB uses. My NRG will regenerate while it is farming, it is a good use of dead time waiting on NRG.

    I'd have to pull three of my VotH's off my team, which would just make getting that TMR take a lot longer.

    Yeah, I don't plan on actually using Cloud, but I could use his TMR and Elfreeda's on someone else.

    I TMR farm manually, and it's going to take less time for me to get Aileen and VotH done. I was thinking about the zodiac spear too, which is why TDH is tempting.

    Finish what you were doing first.

    You had a plan... stick to it and make cloud/elfreeda the next part of your plan.

    Congratulations on your pull :)

    As someone who's in pretty much the same boat, I'd say stick with your current plan. By all accounts, Aileen is a beast after enhancements, assuming gumi doesn't fuck hers up like they've done to other's.

    I've been begging RNGesus for one VotH. I guess I'll have to settle for the Duke I got a couple weeks ago...::ink::

    My vote is for Aileen. Aside from the fact that she's one of my favourite units and deserves your love and attention, there's not really much room for a TDH finisher in your party (it's more of a luxury) in the 6* meta (correct me if i'm wrong) unless you're working on gearing Tidus. 7*s are still months away and you'll have time to finish farming Elfeeda's + Cloud's TMs by then.

    This. You still have plenty of time to work on the TDH stuff. You already have the ball rolling and your time invested in Aileen and Veritas of the Heavens. I know it’s not as sexy as the concept of having Buster Form and that Marshal Glove, but Aileen and VoH’s can immediately held you. Besides, once you put a TMR on the back-burner, it seems like something new and better will always come along and prevent you from finishing what you started.

    BTW, I pulled a second Elfreeda and Cloud as well and I’m kind of in the same situation as you, except I’m working on a Thirst for Survival. I’m only 35% of the way there but as soon as I’m done with that one, then I’m going for the full TDH build with Cloud. ::up::
