Might be worth it on 5* magicite, but I wouldn't spend more time than necessary farming 4* magicite unless you're really stuck.

Most of the time I just use one Famfrit that has blade ward 8 and HP boon 8 inherited on top of native spell ward 8. Then I pick my other magicite based on what element boon/resist I need, and I only have a second ward if one of my other magicite happens to have it.
I made a living on time trial blowing myself off to cross the finish line at ludicrous speed. -transience

I think double wards is a waste of energy on ward 5. Too much diminishing returns. You should go for the one copy of each but not strain yourself for more.

Ward 8 it's good to stack 2 if you can though.
No problem!

Thanks for the advice everyone!

Edit: inheriting empowers yay or nay?

For 4* Magicite here was my general deck ideal deck design, since you seem to have a lot of questions about it.

Offense element guy + empower
Offense element guy + whatever
Defense element guy + dampen
2 Evrae. With whatever

So the ideal here is you use the 'whatevers' to get you one of each of the following: HP Boon, Spell Ward, Blade Ward, and Fast Act in that order of priority. Or Precise Strikes in that 4th slot over Fast Act in physical decks may be better than fast act in many situations, but that depends on your crit fixing situation (I never had crit fix so those precise strikes were more important)

You may also run two dampen types in place of one of the Evraes/offense element guys for guys like Tiamat that have two dangerous elements

Before you get Evrae use something random with a good second ability that gives attack or magic boon. I had Isgebinds most of the time for Precise Strikes.

I also wouldn't stress about fully loading magicite decks before moving on. You don't need fully inherited decks to advance. Rushing to Light Magicite for Evrae will save you some headache in the long run.
No problem!

What Glint did you actually think was worth $30?
No problem!

Squall's, I have his en ice LMR and his USB2, so if I sandwich the glint between them it should max the infusion and buff his chases on Syldra.

Plus it's ice boosting armor so I can combine the two Snow BSB coats.

Also picked Aerith USB2/LM for the selection. Even though it's on the upcoming Lucky Draw it's better safe than sorry (watch me dupe it now...)

i want Squall's glint. not enough to spend $30 for it but i did just spend 25 mythril hoping for it. probably a dumb idea since i'm sure he'll get a free one like Cloud's later.

Neato I can sub30 Geos now!

Granted probably not that impressive now with awakenings but this guy has been a major personal pain due to his damage reduction savage and it's so satisfying tearing through this guy like butter with cap breaking Valis! Good thing too since I want to make a Madeen with 2 blade wards for Ark.

The HP boons makes Shantoto's trance a little RNG dependant though.

did a d260 without wall for the first time in a while. i had Celes RW Sora's AASB, Locke instacast AOSB on turn 3 thanks to Relm, and Atma Weapon was dead just like that. i'm betting skipping wall in favor of an AASB RW will become the norm for these 260s.
