    October Weapon Enhancement Event (aka Item World)

    IWbannerhead.jpg

    • Typical Item World, nothing special. Great time to upgrade those Lara Crofts STMRs!
    • One unique weapon available for this event:
    IWweaponbanner.jpg
    • Will see minimal use, I suspect, unless you need to cap MP reduction for a specific strategy. Comes with its own unique rare obtainable through this IW event:
    IWweaponupgrades.jpg
    • Useful for newer players, perhaps, but will see almost no use for most players.

    SERIES BOSS BATTLE (FFVII): SAFER-SEPHIROTH

    Untitled.png
    • It's nice to see them finally keeping up with these SBBs, even if they are a year or more behind schedule. Should be an easy win with any of the NV FFVII units so yay for an easy 1000 lapis and a T-pearl!
    • While Gumi said they would update these trials to align with the current meta, we saw from the Rursan Arbiter SBB that all this means is they increased the HP, DEF, and SPR of the boss without actually doing anything else. We can expect the same treatment here.
    • Should still be an easy clear, although the Moogle notes suggest Sephiroth will be able to evade physical attacks on certain turns. It's unclear if this is just adding a few stacks of mirage, or if it's complete physical resistance. If you've played this SBB over in JP feel free to let us know how this works in the comments!

    CHRONICLE BATTLE: KEEPER GAROTE

    20211012CBKeeperGarote.jpg

    • This is your typical 10-level farming CB, should be easy peasy.
    • Make sure you clear all 10 levels for 1000 lapis!
    • Two upgradeable weapons designed for NVA Blue Mage Fina...which we don't have ::thonk::
    • I honestly don't think we're really missing much by not getting her NVA right now, except for the STMR that she gets which is pretty sweet, mostly for the 100% fairy killer on a 55ATK set of clothes.

    ABILITY UPGRADES

    The Highlights
    • Honestly, nothing. Cleome's TMR gets 20% more ATK. Ultima (Black Magic) gets a mod boost but will still be irrelevant since it's non-elemental damage.

    What’s Ending on This Weeks’ Maintenance?


    Vortex Quests


    Chamber of Challenges (aka Red Quartz-ville)
    • This is literally the only event in the Vortex that ends this week, and ofc it resets after maintenance, so really nothing ends this week in the vortex. Has this ever happened before?

    They have nothing else to give us, seeing as they keep cutting out all the other content we were supposed to get. At least this one gives us all a chance to get run Lara's shotgun through before CoW.

    NV Fragment Select II Ticket Exchange
    This is the one to not forget!

    As well as, I suppose, the After-party II Exchange, if one did any of those summons.

    Also, maybe, 20 frags for Cyan, though it's pretty tight on VIP coins nowadays.
