    Bundle Updates

    Certain bundles in the shop will be revamped after maintenance. I don't buy any of these bundles so I can't speak to the value of these things. The smell like a trap, tho ::ink::

    EX Ability Updates (OG Cloud and Red XIII)

    Yeah...so these are about 6 months too late ::ink::

    Frankly, these EX ability updates suck. Both units get a 500 static ATK boost and 100% chain cap increase, which isn't going to help these units do much of anything these days. Don't get me wrong, I'm happy to see Red XIII get something but it's a far cry from making him useful again.

    To add a little insult to the injury, they've changed the normal attack to a BS chain move with a paltry 35x mod that increases by 5x each time up to 50x...woo hoo::sarcasm::)

    I see absolutely no use for such shite.

    What’s Ending on This Weeks’ Maintenance?


    Vortex Quests

    Elemental Dummy Dungeons
    Banner-Elemental_Turn_Challenge.png
    • If it ain't broke don't...wait...it's broke? Did they fix it? I don't even know anymore...
    Mater Caelestis Dungeons (Event & Daily Bonus Challenge)
    Banner-Gluttonous_Consumer_of_the_Cosmos.png
    • Make sure you've cleared all 9 levels and acquired enough evt pts to get the materials needed for the beast/fairy killer if you missed this dungeon the first time around.
    • Only the Mater Caelestis dungeons end this week, the Authlsolthoflsugnasaug dungeons will run for another week.
    Town Exploration: Blackjack
    FFEXVIUS_2021-09-15-13-06-20.jpg
    • Last chance to shoot craps with a Moogle...oh and I guess buy stuff?

    Chamber of Challenges (aka Red Quartz-ville)
    • Seriously, don’t forget to do these quests now that we have a lot more units to door with the new increase in all stats!

    Challenge of the Brave (Challenge Tab in the Vortex)

    All Insignia dungeons will remain open until further notice

    ***Important Notice About Challenge of the Brave Dungeons***
    • At some point, these dungeons will be closed forever.
    • You will still be able to get insignias for your units after these dungeons close, but they will be changed over to a new system where essentially all units from a specific series will use the same brave insignias to upgrade abilities.

    VIP Coin & Lapis Exchange Shop

    FFEXVIUS_2021-09-15-12-45-47.jpg
    • Highly recommend you grab the Sephiroth shards, even if you don't have him. The price is steep, but Gumi has shown that they are going to be stingy AF with premium unit shards so this is your last chance to "easily" acquire shards for this premium unit.

    Thanks for doing it, nice content, Sartre!
    Happy Tuesday Newsday!

    The OG crew , it's late but I will still appreciate.

    Perhaps we can still find some magic in the OG..
    Don't need meta damage , just pretty good.

    Could be cool to add a field effect when cloud or Red is in party, like a good live mako volcano stream
    Cause Clouds irradiated the team with mako
    or a meteor that rains mp from red praying idk. Lol.
    Bawa haha ..

    So with missing out on the daily dummy when it broke did we all end up with much less rewards?
    Or did I miss something?

    (I did go casual occasionly for some family time this summer)
