    Updates to Select Summon and Rainbow Summon Rates

    Producer Letter: https://youtu.be/20z1qQs1-_M

    (note from keyblade: According to the video, summon fest units will be added to the regular summon pool, they will also receive changes though according to the video they will be either neutral or positive changes, not negative)

    Thank you for playing FINAL FANTASY BRAVE EXVIUS.
    Starting from Thursday, 11/7, there will be some changes related to in-game summons. Please refer to the following for more details:

    [Select Summon]
    New 5★ units will not be added into the Select Summon pool, and instead their prisms (7★ awakening material) will be added to the Select Summon pool on the same day that the 5★ units are introduced.
    Also, these unit prisms can be exchanged for fewer tickets!
    Current 5★ units within the 5★ Select Summon pool will remain exchangeable as playable units, and their unit prisms will also be available for exchange!

    It will take 8 5* Select Summon Tickets to receive a prism

    [Rainbow Summon Rates]

    The chance of getting a rainbow crystal will be higher from now on. The 5★ summon rate will increase from 3% to 5%! Furthermore, the drop rates of featured units will increase from 1% to 1.5%!

    [Smaller Pool]
    Summon pools will be permanently refined!
    Selected older units will be removed from the 5★, 4★, and 3★ pools of the following banners:
    • 1/2 Price
    • Featured Summon
    • Step-up Summon
    • In-app purchase Summon
    • Summons obtained via Step-up (Example: 5★ Guaranteed (20%/30% Featured) Ticket Summon)
    The summon pool reduction will not be applied to summons not listed above, such as the EX Summon and Rare Summon.

    We also have other exciting campaigns to commemorate the updates to the summon pool such as the 5★ Select Ticket Lapis Summon, 5★ Rate Up Commemorative 10+1 Summon, and 5★ Rate Up Commemorative Login Bonus. Please refer to their individual news for more details (to be released at a later date)!

    Ongoing changes are being made to the global version of FINAL FANTASY BRAVE EXVIUS. We are always listening to players in order to improve the gameplay experience for everyone. Please understand that some changes will take a while to implement and we hope that you will continue to be patient and supportive of FINAL FANTASY BRAVE EXVIUS.

    that that probably refers to the new upcoming feature where you can trade an 5* select summon ticket for lapis.
    2000 for the first ticket you trade then 1500 for every one after that though the special campaign coming up will allow you to trade up to 5 tickets for 2000 lapis a piece

    WTF would you want to do that? That's not enough lapis to make a full lap, which means it's a horrible idea.

    I like the reduced non-ticket summon pool, though. The prism thing, I'm mostly okay with. You're only good for second copies, and you don't get a second TMR, but it's cheaper.

    Sounds like mostly good stuff, but does that mean that the summonfest stuff can be pulled whenever?

    This is actually awesome. Just by looking at the new info it's straight-up better than in JP simply because UoC isn't useless. Also, having the units be in the pool permanently is pretty nice.

    Although it would be nice if they played around with prices a bit more to decrease the cost of old units to say 4 UoC and moderately new units to something like 6 UoC. But that's just extra fluff. Overall it's already an awesome update.

    Tentatively super excited, not sure what a Neutral change would be, but at least he said no negative stuff. Maybe changing elements or frames or something?

    hmm quick question...

    since fest units are gonna be in normal pools.....does that mean my saving of 5=1, 10+1, and the slots premium 10+1 have chance to get them?

    first thing that comes to my mind would be chaining frame changes after all for example, the Bolting Strike chaining family is (as far as I know) global original so changing frames to bolting strike could be classified as a neutral change

    Well for the premium 10+1 (gold 10+1) that is a limited time banner but the 5+1 and 10+1 could be used for them (though like normal there will be no increased rates and the older units might still be available in these)

    The major downside is this.

    Basically you will need to participate to pull at least one of the 6-star unit before you can change prism to awaken to 7-star using UOC. Previously, you can just change 20 UOCs for Two units and instant get your 7-star unit. Now you can't.

    That's a major blow because now if you want the latest unit, you cannot skip the banner. You MUST pull at least 1 -unit.

    Sad day for F2P. Let's quit.

    I would like to see 3% chance for on-banner units instead of 1.5%. Anyway, everything else seems to be good news.

    Except for fest units you had to pull for TWO copies to have a 7star. Now you can just UOC the prism.

    Not sure I want to swap my select tickets for lapis... but other than that the changes look mostly positive.

    With the premium 10+1 summons only units before a certain date is in the pool. I couldn't find the information for the current banner (i'm tired since it is 10:26pm where I am at so it could be possible that I overlooked it) though there shouldn't be any units in the pool that was available after 10/21
