    Many may have seen this when looking at the FFBE updates, but for those that never followed or no longer follow here is the video in case. Starts at about 16:41+




    The cursing is because they might actually make me spend more money on the game.

    Just too damn awesome. She was my first pull when long chaining became a thing. Which was after the utter crushing disappointment of spending a bunch of money trying to get Orlandeau. I'm not going quite that all in, but I really really really want her. Their rendition has the added bonus of looking really cute too. The bastards.

    They didn't say anything special, so guess just like JP's.

    In the video he said player rank 20, though it says 10 there.


    Various rewards. Including event exclusive.

    I'm wondering what this means for WoL. We could either get him earlier than expected (worst case scenario for me) OR if Vinera is next now, he may get swapped with Kilfue to avoid having back to back raids. This would be my preferred outcome. A few extra weeks to save some more for him would be welcome.

    Losing 2 weeks of tower prep sucks though.

    Double unit UR banner makes me very wary, granted we had a lot of double UR banners (vison cards with units) but this makes me very wary... We already got a number of UR ice units, with almost no UR fire units prior to Rain...

    Hmm Fryevia is one of my favourite characters in FFBE, however I wont be pulling for her. She has just too much going against her.
    1 - it says "limited" collaboration - after getting accidentally Orlandu and then not getting any of his shards in the shop for 3 days I'll never pull again for limited unit (unless it is going to be Lunera) It was simply the worst time i had in this game. Saying that character may not be limited will have to see. Honestly limited characters should be pull only limited, but their shards should stay available.
    2 - waiting for Vinera and I am actually glad for some more time to save Visore.
    3 - Ice, seriously it seems like half of the heroes in this game is Ice, I already have Medienna plus in about 10 years time usable Gilgamaesh and also bunch of other ice units which I'll most likely never use as the 2 mentioned are enough.
    4 - Jobs, seriously weird choice for me, always though of her like dueller so give her any combination of Soldier, Assassin, Ninja, or Monk
    5 - Jobs again, essentially she only has main job for now, unless someone is missing: Shell, Shell, Shell, Shell...

    A bit sad honestly, but it is what it is.

    As much as I want Fryevia, if she's a limited unit I will have to skip. I despise how they have limited units set up in this game.

    Not a fan of limited time units in any gacha game... it's in my eyes manipulation of people's insecurities is why I hate the concept and idea. Don't care how powerful they are or how pleasing the unit design looks... Nope, not touching that with a barge stick!

    Agreed. It was very rare for me to pull on limited banners in FFBE as well for the reasons you mentioned, and WOTV is even worse. Requiring you get all the shards for a unit in the limited time window is just ridiculous and borderline predatory, and I refuse to participate.

    I very much wanted Fryevia... but this makes me wonder... What if Reberta is next?

    Just saw the in game news, and yep its pretty much there in bold letters Fryevia is limited time... So yep, can't care less about any future global exclusive units if they follow the same pattern.

    Yup.. Sad to say... I'll most likely pass on her... but if it is Reberta, it's another story....

    I skipped FFT to grow my Engle and Fredrika. I need DPS and Frey could be perfect (no Mediana to use ice mats either).
    But having to go hard in for a limited unit sounds rough...

    If you need a dps, target Vinera when she arrives. She's one of the best. She's the best if paired with Xiza's TMR.

    Just realised that there is tiny chance she may be limited free unit - the way Yshtola was. Being UR though chance for that is minimal.

    Double unit UR doesn't (typically) work the same way in wotv as ffbe; you probably needn't be wary because of it.

    For a single UR banner, it's 0.8% per pull to get that UR and 1.2% to get some other UR. For a double UR banner, it's 0.8% for the first, 0.8% for the second, and 0.4% for a random. In other words, sharing the banner with Rain won't affect your chances of getting a Fryevia.

    She is a limited unit. Her stats were also wrong (they're lower).

    That's not really what I'm concerned about, what I'm concerned about is if Fryevia and Rain are on the same banner, a limited unit with a non-limited one... Unlikely to happen, but still I'm concerned it might be. I do not want Fryevia period, if she is on the same banner as Rain, no matter how a small a chance there is of obtaining her whilst going for Rain, will put me off pulling off getting Rain!

    Ok, this money grab is just insulting.
    All the UR garunteed banners which only use Paid Lazure is just, ouch.

    And the new "Offer Wall" is ridiculous.
    Maybe I'm old, but is this really just what mobile games are like now?
    Its disappointing.

    Free pull was absolute trash and I've no intent on chasing this limited/paid BS no matter how much I'd love a Fry.
