    Alright, I won't be lazy this week, I'll actually post the news :-P

    20220408VisionsWorldV2.png

    20220408VisionsWorldV2.jpg

    The Highlights

    • Now the event truly begins, with all stages finally open...one week into the 2-week event :mad:
    • Gehanna is fairly easy to cap/clear
    • Wicked Weapon requires mages to cap/clear (stupid high DEF and very low SPR)
    • Use light element on Dark Rain.
    • Minimum 100 lapis reward just for playing. 50k lapis for 1st place (not shareable!)
    • Event gear is actually quite good (with the exception of the bow?) I definitely recommend farming this stuff
    • Farm Dark Rain for higher drop rate (albeit random drops)

    Full Details: https://lapis-prod-staticnews-gumi-...mg/20220412CounterattackoftheExostarsRaid.jpg

    The Highlights
    • Standard Raid event with crappy gear.
    • Nothing special, move along...
    SpecialStoryTheReturnBanner.png
    • Complete (read: skip through) more story content for lapis!
    bannerhead2.jpg

    Full Details: https://lapis-prod-staticnews-gumi-...akuraNicholTRFeaturedExchangeVCAbilities.html

    The Highlights
    • Nichol and Sakura are carbon-copies of each other. They're SLB mages locked to water and lightning, respectively.
    • Their STMRs are 2-handed mage weapons, which will be handy when mages finally get their variance upgrade in the future!
    • We finally get NVA Mediena! Now who is actually gonna use her?
    • Summon Banners:
    summon banner1.jpg
    • GLEX Vision Card step-up banner. Total cost is 28k lapis.
    • The GLEX VC is like "Leave it to Me!" from Tulien banner except for mages and worse as it appears to have chain ramp boost as opposed to chain cap boost. This could be a typo, however, so we'll see when it actually arrives after maintenance. (See details below)
    • If you go all the way on this banner and wish to pity Nichol/Sakura then you'll need to then go to the next step-up banner:
    summon banner2.jpg
    • Much like the Reberta banner, it'll cost 46k lapis to get the 10 tickets to do the full pity. Not recommended, imo.
    • However, the coin shop will have fragments!
    • The coin shop also will have a mystery crystal and master crown! (price not yet known)

    - Vision Card Upgrades Exclusively for 7* Units -
    • Yes! Gumi is actually releasing the 7* VC upgrades! And we even get a couple of GLEX VC upgrades!
    • You must first use a mystery crystal to purchase a MasterCard to unlock a 7* units VC slot (1 mystery crystal = 1 MasterCard = 1 7* VC unlock)
    • These upgrades generally come from the underwhelming generic VCs you get when you pull a random NV unit. You probably have multiple copies of these already.
    • First up is the Rizer card "No Matter the Cost" which gives a 7* unit a full LB gauge at the start of battle and/or upon revival.
    • Next is the card "Chores with Grandpa" which gives a 50x modifier boost to magic abilities and 500 static MAG
    • Then there's the card "A Story of Beginnings" which gives a 50x modifier boost to physical abilities and 500 static ATK
    • There are also two GLEX VCs in Starlight Elena's and Yoshikiri's that will provide some nice passives to 7* units
    • SElena's VC will give a chain cap boost and 500 static ATK/MAG
    • Yoshikiri's will give 2000 static HP and 1000 static SPR

    Just one thing to add, those Stmr are ELE LOCKED.
    Be careful before using them on Angela (still the most insane mage ever).

    ... Is it better to make 2 Mediena's STMRs, or to NVA her further? Real question here.

    I would say it depends on what the 'certain abilitys' are that become the boost from her stmr. When it be her main dmg skills, i would say 2 of her stmr are BiS for her.

    Very true! Although a lot of people forget that Rivera can do this already with her normal attack which puts up 1 AoE reflect on the party. Equip her with two weapons and Aurora Scarf and then just tap Rivera and Vivi together (Rivera first) just like you would if you were chaining two units together. Rivera puts up each reflect just before Vivi uses it up so it works. But putting Rizer card on Steiner definitely makes it easy :)

    Rizer card also great on Avalanche Jessie for Turn 1 87% DEF/SPR break and 120% all element imperil!

    I think atm With too few crystals at Hand, its wasted on any 7*. I‘d rather use em to get some to 130. As Player since Release i got enough Units to choose From. But i think for some Thats an viable Budget Option to clear some battles.
