Not saving anything, because at this point it's very likely that gumi screws that up anyway. But even then, i'll probably pull on any CG unit minus Jake and Raegan, so not much time to save.

And if they for some reason won't screw up, also this:

only step up banner worth saving for is cg hyoh

best damage dealer in jp by far

When is hyoh due out roughly in global? How come not raegen? I thought he is meant to be pretty good?
I keep tossing up between going all in for sephiroth or raegen.


Don't get me wrong, Raegan is good...but i just don't want him. I like him in the story, too. Or at least, i don't want to pull for him, if i get him off banner i'd use him. Guess some other CG unit had to suffer so that i can recharge enough tickets/lapis after Fina, Lid and Nichol.

I plan on only hard pulling for CG units anyway, that's what i do on JP and it's going rather well despite being a f2p account. As for Hyou, there is quite a gap between the last CG unit and him...maybe a month and a half after they implemented 7* is when he came out on JP iirc.

Could someone explain the step up banners for the newbies amongst us?


a step up banner is where you do several 5k lapis pulls with better rewards. the 5th is usually a guaranteed 5* from the banner. Some of the rewards have been stuff like 10% trust moogles and 5* rate up.

I hope they just reuse the sephiroth step up. I remember people posting their 5th pull and it having like 6 5* bases. I'm at 20k lapis now and should be at the needed 25k by the time that gets here.
Smashing Pancakes is not for the light hearted.

I saw a screenshot of a 10+1 from the Sephiroth/Lila banner with 7 rainbows. People would do a full 25k and end up with 3-4 of both banner 5*s, and a bunch of others. There's no way Gumi gives us the exact same system. If we get step ups they'll be heavily nerfed.

With them talking about possibly doing a different system and not bringing over step ups, I believe that they don't want people being guaranteed a banner rainbow after "only" 25k lapis. They want people to have to keep spending 50k+ and getting nothing.

Have they confirmed step-ups are coming to global? Last I read/heard was Gumi wanted to try something different. I think it was one of the questions they answered in one of the January videos...Ramza upgrades one I think.


They did confirm step up banners would be a thing in GL, but they wouldn't say when they would introduce them. They also mentioned looking into other summoning systems, though not in the context of replacing step ups.

The other summoning system was $45.99, unless they have another gem or two to throw at us

Pretty sure they've said the "step up" banners that we'll receive will not be like the ones JP got. They will be a different system of summoning.

That said, I suppose I will be in a sense. I'm dropping my stash on the FF9 banner chasing Beatrix and Eiko. After that, I'll save until Lila and then Vincent, both of which were step ups in JP.

But again, just because JP got it, doesn't mean we will, or that they'll be the same. If we do, I highly suspect them to be different.

If it was similar to what the did with that Ariana banner where each 10+1 gave you a shard that you could trade in for the banner rainbow, I'd be all for that, especially if you could choose which one you wanted on a multi-rainbow banner. I don't think that's the system they'd use though.
