Full credits to @PlatinumArrow for writing and sending me his analysis.


HAMMERHEAD BANNER OVERVIEW

Hammerhead:
Because it wasn't enough that Bartz could cover four elements, he also needs to compete in Wind.
This completely supersedes the USB1 and provides the reason to throw Bartz onto your already-overloaded Wind teams.
Who could possibly go wrong with even more Quick Cast stacking, DeNA thought to themselves.

Hunting Bow:
This is not, of course, Faris's USB3.
Those gunning for her chain want either that or her USB2 to make full use of the Imperil Wind she offers.
It is more or less a standard Crush Brave USB, but those struggling with Adamantoise may find it useful to know that the DEF/RES/MND Crush negates the boost of Savage Adamant Guard.

Holy Rod:
For what it's worth, V finally has an instant heal USB.
With regard to end-game usage: Mateus, Geosgaeno, and Manticore all Sap or Poison anyway though.
Gilgamesh uses neither of the elements this guards against.
Lenna also has an AASB...

Gaia Rod / Seraphim's Mace / Minerva Bustier:
The moment it's decided that Krile is a fire mage DeNA turns around and makes her Earth. Because of course.
Fire and Earth are two of the most common elements to build Torment Gilgamesh teams around anyway so whatever.
But just off the top of my head, Terra, Rydia, Emperor, and Maria AASBs will invalidate this Earth suite quite easily.
One of these four is barely a week afterward.

Beastmaster's Guise
It's an Arcane, it's cute, it's +Fire, and it provides Krile with something better to do once you have either her Fire USBs or Chain active.
What's not to like?

Man-Eater:
The Awakening shreds the lion's share of bosses' HP and the Arcane finishes it off.
Still one of the best Arcanes, and something to cling to should you fail to get the AASB.

Bartz's Bracers:
The AASB kills this.
For now use it with the USB2 and break some Savage Modes. Enjoy the +Fire piece.

Rune Armlet:
With Faris, SB meter is a premium.
She is either entrusting it to someone else or juggling her Chain + Imperils.
I don't think you'll find time to use this in the midst of all that.

White Robe:
+10 MND, then throw it on the pile for Artifact Weapon fodder or whatever Sacreds are going to be called in Global.

Longinus:
Finally, Faris has a useful LM.
Not that dualcasts count towards the follow-up if you are using Faris USB3, but the occasional extra hits to a chain are nice.

Gold Shield+:
I mean, half the fun of Bartz is seeing quadruplecasts fly, but sure.
+10 ATK if you agree.

Laurel Crown:
Anything to improve on Lenna's LMs is appreciated.
Since this procs on non-heal WHT like Aerith's LM2 it's occasionally better than standard W-cast WHT LMRs.

Conclusion:
Foresight buried this one six feet under, and the prizes you'll really want aren't that many.
Those with Sora AASB will already have gotten a taste of what Bartz AASB is about to do.
The Arcane won't come back as far as I know, but AOSB selects and the Full Throttle renewal are soon if that's your thing.
Lenna's AASB event banners contain all the important relics here and more.
Pull if you must; I won't stop you.

OGRENYX BANNER OVERVIEW

Ogrenyx / Kelger's Sword:
These are pretty definitive reasons to use Kelger.
Quetz does not shaft ninjas quite the way that Phoenix does, and neither does Gilgamesh. Kelger is, moreover, superior to Yuffie and Thancred thanks to his new Arcane and the fact that his Ultra is the most suited to plain offense.
Ninjas are still the best at racking up the chain counter like it's nothing.
Now if only they could get an AASB they'd be back in business.

Triton Hammer:
The easiest way to break through Quetzalcoatl is still with a Chain.
That aside, this is the better Earth second-gen Chain in my opinion, at least until Maria and Emperor's AASBs give you a reason to use Red instead, or someone better comes in his place.
Once Galuf has the chain up, in any case, he can provide utility through WHT 4* or breaking Quetz's Savage with Heavy access.
Do I really have to sell you on a Chain?

Gilgamesh's Guise:
Gilgamesh is still one of the least efficient Chain-holders, but he will get a Fire Radiant down the line.
Not that a Chain is to be scoffed at for any reason. Even if Gilgamesh does get shafted as a Fire samurai.
That being said, Vincent's Chain has a good chance of coming back on the Chain-focused Fest banner in a week.

Empyrean Rod:
This is a rather silly USB, but it does work. Bonus for the instant Haste + Last Stand too.
In Gogo's case it doesn't particularly synergize well with the rest of V because he'll have to mimic himself to make the best use of his Water magic.
That means, for example, that he would have to use Chain Waterja, then fire off the USB the next turn before any other characters use anything that can be mimicked (which either means everyone else fires off Soul Breaks, or you take a DPS loss from not doing anything).
It's much simpler to look at this in the context of Water magic teams, such as with Belias, where mimicry is much-needed due to Water magic's scarcity.
Next better opportunity will be Strago's AASB for what it's worth.

Godhand / Lambent Hat:
Imperil Earth, quick-cast for faster Ironfist Earth offense or plainly charging up Stone Press faster... it's clear what this is for. Simple technology, simple use, effective results.
Combine with his EnEarth LMR to get your damage's worth.

Gogo's Coat:
I would treat this the same way I do the USB.
As a Glint it does have potential since it has the opportunity to use a mimicked skill instead of relying on a weaker Glint attack multiplier.

Heroic Shield:
Kelger will find himself hard-pressed to find EnEarth options otherwise.
Not that he has much else to spend free SB gauge on given how quickly Ninja abilities should boost the meter, so this isn't too bad.
Boost up and then finish with the Arcane, optimally.

Kelger's Cloak / Triton's Dagger:
These are essentially Kelger's proper LMs.
The faster and more efficiently you can keep Blink stacks running, the better.
Because Kelger is one of those with mediocre default LMs and his USB does not actually grant EnEarth, the EnEarth is actually quite useful.
If I'm not mistaken this and the Glint are your best options to ram the damage ceiling higher.

Power Rod:
Just to nail in the point that you really should be using Gogo for Belias.

Murasame / Art of War
Poverty options, question mark.
We're talking, like, extreme poverty here.
Enjoy your +10 ATK.

Conclusion:
Well, I mean, there are two Chains on this banner. And Kelger isn't bad.
A better pre-fest mythril trap than the first one, to be completely fair, and not particularly hurt by foresight.
Gogo's stuff is silly, but because DeNA expects you to come across your water relics across multiple months and never on the same banner, something new is always cause for celebration.
Convenient of them to put a Water mime a week after Meia, though, don't you think?

@PlatinumArrow I enjoy your analysis

Hard skip

Easy enough when I have both those chains though
Banner 1: 0 dupes, 8/14 okay. While it's not a bad banner for me, it's slightly top-heavy and there's nothing that I particularly need from it. Skip.

Banner 2: 3 dupes, including Galuf's CSB. Only about 6/14 okay, so it's a pretty easy skip for me.
What a fuddy duddy.
