    ***Let us begin with the best news we received this week, shall we?***

    DAILY FRAGMENT DUNGEON (AKA SHARD DUNGEON, AKA "BACK SO SOON?")

    20201201DailyFragmentChallengeBanner.png

    Begins: Thursday, December 9th after maintenance

    Ends: Wednesday, December 22nd at start of maintenance

    If a single unit is run through every day you can get a total of 70 frags for that unit.

    Full details:

    Lonely Island Treasure Hunters (Story Event!)

    Wait...wut? A Story Event? Gumi still does these?!
    20211207LonelyIslandTreasureHunters.jpg

    The Highlights:
    • We get a story event?
    • We get lapis?
    • We get a 50% M Aquan killer?

    Lonely Island Super Foe Rush (Boss Rush Event)

    Go to the beach and kill all marine life to reap some cheap rewards...
    20211207LonelyIslandSuperFoeRush.jpg

    The Highlights:
    • It's something to do?
    • You get some new swimwear?
    • We get a few more sources of aquan/insect killer, tho likely limited to summer units...sadge

    Summon Banner: NV Summer Physalis | NV Summer Shinju | NV Summer Freesia

    It's nice that Gumi recognizes those of us living in the Southern Hemisphere. While it may be winter for most of you, I'm currently sweating my balls off in the summer heat, so you'll have to excuse me if I don't bother to address your confusion about the timing of these summer units.

    20211207SSPhysalisFeaturedSummon3.jpg

    The TL;DR
    • It's a triple NV banner so good luck pulling the unit you actually want, and you can only pity two of the three so if you actually do all 5 laps of the banner expecting to get all three, you will be sorely disappointed.
    • It's a buy 3 get one free type banner, 4.5k lapis per pull which means 36k for a pity.
    • Physalis is a water-locked SLB mage who hates aquans and bugs...nuff said.
    • Shinju is an earth-locked SLB mage who hates aquans and stones...nuff said.
    • Freesia is the wind version of Aerith/Nicole/Sakura/Roca...nuff said.
    • They're all in swimwear, and if you squint real hard you can see their little boobies...nuff said.

    I'm not even going to mention the Vision Card. It's straight up trash. No, actually, it's worse. You remember the first NV Aerith? The one from over a year ago? It's that. But worse because it's a year later and for some reason they think it's okay to release shit like this.

    2 words: that STMR.

    could care less of any of these units (freesia isnt even as great as she was in jp due to bulwark existing in gl for wind)

    p.s. frag dungeon is legit shocking as past 2 have been dragged out to the last week of time limit and this 1 is 2-3 weeks ahead of that


    also saw comment on reddit about it asking for gumi to give us jp's fragment system for xmas <_<

    Shard , but i cannot get enough to ex3 my Sep (he still fine with Tifa card) , not enough to ex3 Karten also (he is limited and 200 shard needed). There are some units will get to ex1, 2, 3 but it's not a big change (most of them are outdated or support unit only). May be i will get my Sep to ex3 in next 3 month or i will get one of his copies from pulling (if RNG on my side). Now is time to save lapis for Christmas unit (if it's worth).

    True, Freesia's STMR is BiS for Yuna, or CD Aerith if you're still Holy Nuking things, and if Shui Yu ever gets EX upgrades like Ibara did then she may also really want this!

    Sums it up, nicely (for the next 4 thousand f**kin' years!) ::rofl::::rofl::::rofl::::rofl::

    ::kefka::

    IKR ::happy::

    For the Story Event: I was definitely more excited when Madam showed up (nailed the entrance) than the S3 chars and would totally be down for some more of her adventures if the treasure is good.

    For the Dungeon, I failed a little:
    Ran 5 days of Ling before my kid pulled a dupe for me putting me 25 shards over EX+3, still happy to finish her. Kid may have been able to tell this wasn't the fake happy I get when they get me trolls but a unit I really like and use.

    Ran Auron for 4 days hoping to EX+1 to get that VC for ::win::... Oh... So we don't do that here huh? I had no idea he didn't get his card until EX+3! ::desch:: I did STMR Moggle him with no regrets instantly.

    For pulls, easy hoarding towards winter holidays! ::kryla::
    (Anyone else wondering where is the Black Friday MMXon love? ::rudecat4::)

    Yeah, Auron and Yuna are "Premium" units that don't get their VC until EX3...sucks but oh well... Mine are sitting at EX1 and hoping for random off-banner dupes
