I have Krile, Gilgamesh, Tidus, and Seifer chains now. I could rush to get a second banner 5 pull but instead I will save 100-150 mythril for bartz
Sir Chris
So I fought Emerald Weapon today and my god this boss is cheap as hell, completely diffrent league from the other weapons. He's like Tiamat if he was stupid from the start, drained your hones, causes sap on his attacks even though he hits hard that you need last stand AND has 50% chance of countering with a piercing 2000 damage attack. I have to keep entrusting Selphie just to stay alive, I only got around to 70% when I started to run out of hones and he was attacking twice a turn. Doubt I could have finished him with Terra's BSB1 commands.

Beat this f***er finally, RNGesus may have not smiled on me during the fest, but I got super lucky with doublecasts (especially with Vali on the eyes) Can you guys believe I did it without Terra's OSB/Ather? Had to rely on USB entries in the later stages of the fight.

welp. after 3 years they finally caught me on the hook and reeled me in. got nothing again with my last mythril and did some gem pulls. and by some i mean 5x11. i got both AOSBs, Ashe's LMR, Tifa's glint and a bunch of dupes. no chain, no Tifa USB, not even Tifa LMR or Maria BSB. at least i have an 8* lightning boost sword for Ashe i guess?

i'm not even mad, but i do feel kinda gross. like i'm some animal and not a person for falling for that.

Yikes

5x11 that's crazy.

I had two moments in the game where I bought some gems for actual banner pulls. Was only 2-3 pulls each time. But I always got kinda lucky (did it for Dark Cecil's DARK SWORD banner and for Tidus's Swiftform Shield banner). I felt kinda gross both times but I actually got decent stuff both times-- but both times I felt like it wasn't worth it in spite of this.

This is why I pretty much only use gems for 100 gem pulls, dream selects, and occasional lucky pulls now. If I expect nothing (or have 100% rate on getting something of value for the pull in the case of dream selects) it feels more like I'm just supporting the game a little. Also helps that these are things where spamming draws is literally impossible. So yeah that'd be my advice in the future-- even when you get most of the stuff you want you don't feel good about it so don't do it.
No problem!
This is a cute and pop genocide of love!

Random asides:

1. Squall still does 99999x3 drain strength on him if the chain is at 99 (doable with a modest amount of luck on dualcasts).

2. For my first few runs I actually had Squall's weapon at like level 10 because I'm an idiot and had planned to full augment it so was using a lot of augmenting for weapon EXP but got distracted mid upgrades. He does more like 6500x4 to start and 7500x4 when double en-ice is up now. Pretty good! Also makes drain strength matter even less on him since he 9999x4 caps even earlier on in the ice chain even with drain strength on him-- hell it matters on Rikku the most really now. Not that she does massive damage but I have Rinoa's ice boomerang on her so she does like 12k per attack early in the chain. It matters!
No problem!

This banner almost got me too. I was actually thinking about spending money, the main thing that stopped me is thinking about how bad I'll feel if I spend money and still don't get what I want (and the fact that I was saying I'd never do it just like 2 days ago)
I made a living on time trial blowing myself off to cross the finish line at ludicrous speed. -transience
Stuff like Orlandeau's OSB debut banner taught me to be more careful about doing gems pulls, went Mythril broke chasing it, and then I spent 30 bucks just to get a crummy 1/11 Healing Rod. Maybe sometimes I'll use the last of the mythril with gems to do one last pull but wasting the full 30 on dupe/garbage relics sucks hard so I stopped.

This banner is tempting especially now that I'm near 100 mythril again but Bartz' stuff will be better in the long run because of the multiple elements he covers, and I need a earth chain for Quetzalcoatl anyway.

And sorry you didn't get the chain or Tifa's USB, that sucks.

yeah. i really should have stopped after the first gem pull, with Ashe AOSB+LMR. i might have even felt good if i had stopped there, or at least less bad.

i mean it'll be nice only having to chase Tifa in one future banner instead of two, and having a second earth glove for Galuf or Yuffie, but not $120 nice.
