  1. Hello? Planet Earth calling... Planet Earth calling...

    This is another edition of SakashimA's traveling post, writing from Zinkenstill - Phantagrande Skydom, where anything new or old goes here.


    ...Although I don't know if i'm going to continue this. My plan was to write at the end of Summer August Magnafest, but I kept delaying until now :notlikemiya:.

    Reasons? Basically a severe burnout of GBF. Even though I still like Granblue, nowadays I can't even keep playing for 30min straight. Most days I log in, use AP(not even EP) and log off. What a shame  :vinty:  I don't ever reached my ideal endgame phase.

    ...Aaand lets keep going with this, before I get lazy again and give up :sachi: :


    -Eternals stuff:



    Finally, in August, transcendence for all ten Eternals were unlocked. But as a lazy burnout player that I am, I had not gathered all needed material in time so I spent some time grinding halos and urns to unlock both at same time. And then miscounting his Rusted Weapons and spend more time hunting Proto-Bahamut ::.

    Now both are in 2nd stage trans, just waiting for this idiot pick up to level up :meguface: . Sorry my girls.


    -Arcarum stuff:


    Another reason for why this post was delayed: I wanted to include Fraux's Domains completed, but it only happened mid-September :: ehe.

    On another Arcarum news, I "wasted" 63 Arcarum tickets for all ten achievements on Normal Arcarum (defeating every boss).


    -Summertime shenanigans:

    End of July - August. Summer time. The time where we get new swimsuits(and yukatas) characters. The time where I plan my spark, fail miserably to get what I want and return here to rant about. The time where is always a Summer Magnafest online and I just spend it doing the same things as usual. The time where many tears of joy and saltness and anger are shed, thanks to RNG freebies.



    Kaguya is there because of a impulsive mistake: as we know, after the lottery fiasco, Cygames gave everyone a Tier 3 ticket, which we could choice a single Grand/Primal/Non-ticketable summon. Soo this kid here thought "well, I already have Belial, I have at least one of each Primal summon and I'm not in a hurry to get the missing Grands, my best choice is a summon" and then proceed to instantly pick Kaguya and using it for uncapping his 2* Kaguya... Forgeting that we had Summer missions, and the last prize was a Sunstone... If anything, I only got the Sunstone in the last 3 days.



    The second image is a memorial of my summer draw's luck: With a spark, I managed to get almost all new 2021 summer units except Shalem. Thankful the spark wasn't bad and managed to get surprising 6 SSRs on free rolls, with some curious results:

    • The above image of three Tsuchinokos;
    • Got four servings of Tahar Masala(Summer Tabina's weapon);
    • Had to spark S.Metera, because she didn't came along;
    • Summer Siegfried x2, Summer Shiva x2, Yukata Yngwie x2;
    • Totals: 32 SSRs, 16 Gold Moons, 10 Summons.

    Not getting S.Shalem doesn't bother me, but leaving without the best unit of the batch is a bit disappointing.

    At this rate, next year I'm gonna just roll in whatever banner have the summer skins I want :mare: .



    ...If I last until next summer, I mean. Blessings to all for a long journey ahead :maple:.

    I'm just a little bit jealous :mare:


  3. After Granblue`s 7th Anniversary, here I am again with another filler post :sachi: It`s the same as always but enjoy nonetheless.


    Firstly, let me welcome my 6th Evoker: Aranaan-san.


    Ironically, as an Agni Main, I should have gotten him a loooong time ago. Still, I don`t have Summer Mimlemel soo... no meta bursting for now.

    Speaking of, I choose Holiday Lily with Anniversary Ticket. Totally not biased :mare:.

    Speaking of, I said this before:

    On 1/12/2021 at 10:42 PM, SakashimA said:

    For now I have five Evokers, zero Sandbox weapons, and 100% worry on their Extended Skill/FLB.

    It was pretty obvious but... WHY? WHY EVOKERS` DOMAIN SKILLS HAVE SUCH GRINDWALL?? WHYYYYY?!? I dont even touched Replicard Sandbox...

    Speaking of, WHY? Why Fraux`s Domain is soo good? WHYYYYY?!? :komari:.



    Into the main subject, the free gacha rolls:

    • Got 32 SSRs over the month;
    • Many Gold Moons (18), as expected;
    • New companions: Summer Ferry, Grand Cags, Feather, Fiorito, Isaac, Kou, Morrigna, Earth Vaseraga, Light Sara, Tabina;
    • The best moment: when I got Summer Ferry;
    • The cool moment: Got another Zeus, thanks for free ULB RNGus;
    • The poop moment: Mireille Gold Moon;

    I`m pleased with the outcome, except of ''the poop moment''. This, and that I 'wasted' the 100 + 100 + Super Mukku rolls because of... Summer Zodiacs, of course :leecher:. They know what we want :leecher:.

    If not for that 70 draws at Mireille before I could have sparked twice instead of once, but well... Mireille is cute so whatever :makina:. As for the spark itself I got the two Zodiacs so I`m not even mad that I got 1% less SSR rate:

    • New SSR: Summer Andira, Summer Albert, Summer Kumbhira, Mishra;
    • Gold Moons: Summer Anila, Athena, 2x Pholia, Summer Kuvira, Monika, Narmaya, Yukata Rosamia, Fire Yuel;
    • Summons: Summer Kaguya, Prometheus;



    Additional random trivia:

    • 1) Got 9K crystals and a Sky Ace from scratcher;
    • 2) At the time of this post, I need a single Tears of the Apocalypse to ULB my first Dark Opus. At last, hum... :vinty:;
    • 3) 28K Flawed Prisms for Esser and Nio Transcedence;
    • 4) At the time of this post, It`s Unite@Fight and I`m at tier C slacking;
    • 5) Got a lucky Gold Bar drop;
    • 6) At the time of this post, I have 69 Arcarum tickets :notlikemiya:;
    • 7) My girl Socie got her FLB. Yip :kosame: Yip.


    That`s all for now. Until next time folks.

  4. Ok guys I`m here, ready to share useless tales :leecher: . Pick a comfy Vee seat and lets go.


    1) A Tale of Oracles:

    "Once upon December, when the snow falls into the blue sky of Nihon, we players are greeted with marvelous gifts from mothership Cygames. Many of them brings their own story. This one is about a precious gem, that acts as a window into the celestial heavens."

    So we got a free Evolite and I was there, with all the waifu Evokers done, wondering which one could be the next one: Between meta picks Aranaan or Caim, powerful niches Geisenborger, Katzelia and Lobelia, or the auto-skill/free backline buffs Estarriola. Can you guess which one I choose?



    Yep, I choose him, the least made one. Mostly because I like his design, his "unique" playstyle and above all else, the hilarious mental image of Estarriola sleeping in the backline makes soo much sense. Sadly his attack animations are pretty lame.

    For now I have five Evokers, zero Sandbox weapons, and 100% worry on their Extended Skill/FLB.


    2) A Tale of Wishes and Crystals:

    "In another place, whenever you desire for companionship, you would make a wish upon the sky. Be your wish answered, a falling star will bring your fortune. Here, these glittering crystals make our fate."

    On 1/8/2021 at 6:29 AM, Thyndd said:

    Did Santa bring in the goods? 

    Yes, but no. :mare:

    To summarize, my free rolls were great  but everytime I used my own funds it was a disaster.:sachi:

    If we ignore the last day, I got 31 SSRs (5,84% rate). Or 41 SSRs (5,39%rate) including the last day. Worth mention to Gachapin + Mukku three times.

    About my sparks... I`ve done not 1 or 2... but I sparked 3 TIMES this period, with two of them on 3% RATE BANNER :holo: And I`m happy with this "mistake" :vinty:

    • My first spark was the last day of Xmas banner: Sparked H. Magisa, got H. Nemone and Predator on free rolls. 130 free / 170 paid. Exactly 9 SSRs.
    • My second spark was on end-of-year Flashfest: Sparked Shalem. Good things include Ca Ong x2, Hades, Ixaba and Zeus. 120 free / 180 paid. 17 SSRs. 
    • My third one was the last roulette day: Literally throwed 70 rolls for Mireille, because I only got marks from these ones. Got Kaguya, Light Gawain and 8 Gold Moons.

    I thought about which gala banner I would spark (after that first one, I could only guarantee one spark) and I choose the Flash gala because: A) I wanted Shalem for Kengo/Rising Force Ougi memes. 2) I`m a bit sad with Zodiac`s new design (I would prefer 12 blonde miko-inspired buffer waifus but what I can do :miyako:). C) I could get Olivia during the rolls P.S. I still don`t have her.

    Extra image: Spear users, rejoice your God roll (it was on 15/12)




    Sorry, it`s a bit late here so I`m stopping for now. I will continue this later. Return to your Vryn chair, I`m back.


    3) A Tale of a Bright Future:

    "Legends tells of crescent-shaped stones, while not a uncommon sight, that manifest when someone reaches the border between realities. Attracted by this mysterious phenomenon, a singular merchant started collecting them, offering valuable good in trade."

    Firstly, a photo of ~6 years worth of moons:


    As a New Year`s 'resolution', I decided to funnel these beauties into another primal grid (or at last a Superlative weapon). But which one? According to my old-newbie dreams, it`s Light or Dark primal. 

    Well, as the people say: When Lucifer gives you 2* Zeus, 5x Edens, 3x Gambanteinn, 2x Ivory Ark, a Sacred Standard and FLB Certificus and a Light-Advanted GW; you make a Light primal grid :maple:. I don`t have any preferences between both, but what pushed me into LIght was two simple things: Light have more waifus(for me) than Dark, and Dark already does enough damage.

    Still in the topic of Light-related things, I don`t really make any preparations for Unite&Fight 'events'. I pick between 30 min ~ 2 hours to decide what I`m gonna aim, build a EX+ OTK party and go with the flow. For this time, maybe I will try to reach C tier with my new Zeus grid.

  5. Don`t fret I`m not worth I sound a bit overdramatic, but my ''issues'' aren`t as serious as it seems. I think. :chaika: Even if it`s limiting, as long I`m the only one bothered by, It`s fine.

    It`s cool seeing how others plays the same GBF as me, their experience vastily different than mine. Would be smart learn from it. A shame I`m very inflexible when handling psychological matters. :vinty:

    As you can already guess, my friend list will stay empty...

    But you gave me some food for thought/self-improviment, and for this I offer my thanks. :677632610700230696:


    :kanpai: Now that we ended this complicated matter, let`s pray for good fortune on roulette. :kanpai:

  6. Look at me, running away when life questions my choices. Pathetic :amane:

    Still, a bare minimum answer is due; and for that I`m here (better late than never? I`m not sure).

    Looking at Luci... no, forget it. From the very start of my GBF career, I`ve followed a simple ''rule'': If I can`t do something alone, I just push it aside. Of course it extends for my way of life IRL, but lets keep focus on GBF :sachi: From Omega to Twin Elements HL and so on, even with the event raids; If I couldn`t beat, I would just ignore it. Not even host and call backup, my prideful (and social inept) self wouldn`t allow it.

    Fast foward to nowadays; my grids are up to the challenges, I have a pretty sizable roster, raids already powercreept, etc etc. Even so, I still avoid certain key contents: Basically any 6-man raid or Gold Brick mine. It should not make any sense. But when I take account of my own personality, it`s obvious the result.

    Additionaly to my own rule, this dread of ''co-op play'' can be summed up by three main excuses:

    1. I don`t wanna interact with other people: 15% pride, 70% fear, 10% laziness and a ~12% mix of self-awareness, past experiences, unfounded hatred, shyness and of course distrust. I go to great lenghts to avoid other ones; including making a solo crew, using co-op rooms only when I have no other choice, capping EP because I can`t be bothered looking Twitter calls, treating social media like a plague and using non-standard ways to vent a bit (like this subforum).
    2. I don`t believe in myself: a common case of low confidance. Even if It`s possible to clear, the effort and/or willpower needed just drain away any hope for success.
    3. In the end, this is the way I play my waifu collector: a generalized phrase for a bunch of paradigms that molds my GBF life. I have many ones and it`s annoying so I`m stopping here. TLDR: I`m in my confort zone and l just suck it.



    I didn`t wanted to just counterpoint you, so I tried express my thoughts (not good, I know).

    So, excuse me a bit. I will be at some side of the topic in fetal position mulling my thoughts  :kanpai:

    This place never had much activity in first place

    IMO, this topic is even lucky to have two players posting from time to time.

    Alright, less than one week for the worst GW of the decade. How is your prep going?

    My preparations are ready from 3 GWs ago: I`m ignoring it. :Kappa:

    Main reasons are 1) The increased U&F honors tiers make me depressed; 2) Because I`m a solo player, even reaching Tier C is now a chore; 3) It`s Dark time :meguface: ; 4) A little burnout, mostly fine; 5) Genshin Impact :sachi:

    Probably gonna do missions and that is it.


    On 10/23/2020 at 5:35 PM, Thyndd said:

    And this will also serve to illustrate my point about LuciliusHL in the present time

    Yeah I`m aware, believe me; but my 'awkwardness' about this raid (and in extend BubsHL) isn`t a rational one: I know I CAN be carried, CAN learn from failed atempts, CAN strive into proper learning, that I have the tools for it, that the raid IS powercreeped in a certain extend. I know very well but still...

    ...I still don`t WANNA be carried, I WANT to earn my ULB things... But I have fear; fear of fail, fear of coop, fear of wasting time and materials, fear of writing 3 words, fear of interacting with others. Social phobia at its finest.


    ...Sorry about anything. :vinty: I`ll see myself out.

  8. On 8/5/2020 at 12:04 PM, Thyndd said:

    But for completionists it's definitely a great milestone, so congrats my guy!

    A late arigathanks gosaimuch, I`m proud that I even completed all them.

    Looking back, It`s only because I`m a old player slacker that I got twenty bars without really grinding them.


    On 8/5/2020 at 12:04 PM, Thyndd said:

    See you after flashfest, maybe :leecher:

    Half a month later... I`m still recovering from another sad spark :niocry: Possibly(and arguable) the worst one of my GBF career until now.

    News #3 - The 13th, a summer spark. Why I even have hope for summer?

    • New things: Robomi, Summer Brodia(sparked), Summer Kolulu, Summer Silva;
    • Summons: Halluel & Malluel, S. Rosetta, S. Yggdrasil;
    • Moons: Lucius, Petra, Summer Silva x2;

    Except for Alexiel, it`s was a non-gala summer rolls. C`mon Cygames. :vinty:

    Maybe your spark was better than mine? Maybe, I can only hope. :leecher:


    News #4 - Does anyone wanna remember Scracher 2.0? Mine wasn`t a total disaster:

    • SSR Leona;
    • 6 Damascus Crystal;
    • 6 Gold Moon;
    • 3k Crystals.

    Comparable with the last one, but with much more ``useless treasures``. 


    News #5 - ...

    There isn`t anything more. That is all people. :chaika:

  9. Yahallo people; I'm not completely dead yet :chaika: You know my gig so let's get started:

    News #1 - The 10th one, the last jutten, the annoying gremlin, the All-mighty Healer, joins the FLB Family:



    So... that means that I completed the Jutten bingo!! What an achiev...

    On 7/7/2020 at 10:58 PM, Thyndd said:

    I have the 10 revenant weapons farmed for everyone already, and 0187c642999d533f866af16eef2d8499.pngas you can see bars are not a problem either. But... I just don't see the need to have them at FLB,

    ... Well, feels like a second-world happiness :meguface: Whatever:





    Now to dread the incoming 6* uncap. :vinty:


    News #2 -  A summer spark (12th and counting). I got to bed the moment I finished it:

    • The good news: Grand Monika, Yukata Rosamia, Summer Anila(sparked), Summer Chloe;
    • The Truth: 13 SSR means 4,3% rate;
    • The other Truth: 11 Gold Moons;
    • The Harsh reality: 90 rolls before the first SSR;
    • The Harsher reality: I had 3/6 of the rated up characters, proceed to roll all that I already have, with only Y.Rosamia as new one;
    • The Harshest reality: Summer Freyr Another Lucifer.

    Feels like my summer luck is awful, to balance my good fortune on New Year/Anniversary. 

    Now to dread the results of my second spark later. :notlikemiya:

  10. I've been slacking, REALLY SLACKIN, for this past three months. What a troublesome behavior :vinty:

    • U@F? Meh too bothersome (2 boxes done);
    • Magnafest? Lazyness (Just daily omega raids);
    • Strum&Drang event? Made 8 boxes because 200 raids trophy;
    • Draconic battles? Didn't even touched;
    • Free Akasha/Ubaha/etc hosts? Nah i'm fine (not really, but...);
    • 9 pages of Fate Episodes.
    • Seed of Redemption? Already have FLB Six, why bother?

    Even so, I've done some things:

    • Arcarum tickets: 80 > 43;
    • FLB Uno, but his Lv100 Fate still there;
    • Added an emblem on John Doe (6 CCW left without);
    • 3/5 Hollowsky weapons;
    • Cosmos Sword&Katana FLB;
    • 10th and 11th sparks (21 SSRs each).



    Here goes my usual sparks notes, bother at your own will.

    • First spark: Halluel & Malluel;
    • New charas: Grimnir, Ilsa(Light), Mugen, Petra, Shiva, Teena(Summer), Yodarha(Wind), Wulf&Renie;
    • Summons: Nyarlathotep, Rose Queen, Titan;
    • 10 Gold Moons.


    • Second spark: Andira;
    • New charas: Medusa, Pholia, Rei, Zahlhamelina;
    • Summons: Apollo, Grani, Hades, Nehza, Sariel, Satyr, Yggdrasil(Summer);
    • 10 Gold Moons.



    I think it's a good resume (coming from this lazy lunker). Stay safe people and don't follow my steps.

  11. On 03/01/2020 at 5:32 AM, Thyndd said:

    Was it a good one to top it off?

    This, I'll let you judge yourself :maple:


    Ok, roulette is over and I'm here bragging about my results. But as non-gala numbers are boring, lets make a resume:

    • Total free draws: 770 (400 during both 6% period);
    • 47 SSRs from free draws, 14 on non-gala banners;
    • 30 Gold Moons;
    • Non-fest highlights: 3th Belial & Hector;
    • Sad moment: a single xmas unit, Mary(Gold Moon).

    Pretty sure I'm in the lucky side of results, got 20 or 30 draw almost everyday with a free spark during gala. No room for complaints but a single nitpick: because of soo many rolls, I got only one Gachapin frenzy, no Mukku.


    Now into the gala info: 

    Started Flashfest with ~500 draws, got 140 from roulette and completed with my funds.

    • Sparked Alexiel;
    • SSR Charas: Amira(Moon), Beatrix(Moon), Dante(Moon), Drang, Europa(Moon), Jeanne d'Arc (Dark/Moon), Ladiva, Lancelot(Wind), Lancelot&Vane, 2x Lucio(Moon), 2x Silva(Light/Moon), Vira(Light/Moon), Yuisis(Wind/Moon);
    • Summons: Ca Ong, 2x Elil, Grand Order, Halluel and Malluel, Rafael, Setekh, Surtr;

    Sadly didn't roll Shalem or my spark target but with 23 SSRs, 5 Grand weapons, 3 unsparkable summons and Ca Ong, It's a valid tradeoff.

    Heck I could even go light primal now with 4x Eden, 2x Certificus, 3x Gambanteinn and Zeus.:amane:


    Down to ~360 draws into Legfest and got... 260 free rolls!! I-I don't even know if I landed on 200 or won 100 + Jan-ken-po (skipped animation every day).

    • Sparked Vikala;
    • SSR Charas: Anthuria(Moon), Arulumaya, Athena(Moon), Freiheit(Moon), Ghandagoza(Moon), Hallessena(Moon), 3x Lucius(2x Moon), Macula Marius, 2 Noa, Rosetta(Moon), Sarunan(Dark/Moon), Tiamat(Moon), Veight(Moon), Yngwie(Moon), Yodarha(Moon), Yuisis(Fire), Zeta(Dark/Moon);
    • Summons: **AGNI**, 2x Belial, Gilgamesh, Oceanus, Thor;

    MY OWN AGNI AT LAST. Considering only him it's already a worthful spark, adding everything else turn into pure blessed. Except Belial, I could live without him(or three, for instance).

    As I wasn't expecting such luck, I 'wasted' 20 rolls during last day, which netted another Ichigo.


    In the end, I still have an entire spark fund ready. Maybe for valentine or anniversary, let's see what this year holds.


    :vinty:  Blessings for all us this year too. :chaika:

    Congrats on Siete and Nier!

    Haha... to be fair, I already had everything besides Evolite (even 40k Arcapoints stored, damn Cygames) done back at September. It was a loong wait.


    On 31/12/2019 at 3:26 PM, Thyndd said:

    *A very long grid showcase that I have to snip. Really Sorry man.*

    Such dedication, both for your grids and willingness to share your progress. I'm envious.

    Makes me wonder if I should do somenthing alike too. Probably not. My grid are "normal" ones. Except fire, fire got more love.



    Later I shall post my Fun Sparks Moments, but for now a single SALT spoiler:




  13. 10 minutes ago, Thyndd said:

    I mean if you don't mind feeling bad for being useless, you only really need 30k hp and have a proper understanding of the raid to not mess up (or rather, in order to know what you did wrong when you inevitably mess up) :makina:

    And then ULB Opus needs gold bars/hollow keys... yep, lets just forget about it.

    First of all I got to rank 175 (currently rank 180), so I unlocked Lucilius Hard. Took me a while to get bare minimum to even attempt the raid, but finally got it just a mere week before GW and fortunately some strong friends from my crew were able to carry me and my 50k autos hard and got my first ULB opus done in time.

    MFW ULB Opus is a impossible dream for me :Teeku:

    I don't want to spark on legfest anymore!!

    I want to spark on legfest. I want my fluff Pholia! And Monika-san!! And ANCHIRA!!!

  15. Welp, I'm dealing ~450k on Rose Queen... I think i'm doing something wrong :vinty:.

    Ixaba are one of the most powerful weapon, but it matter less if I'm unable to use them properly :leecher:.



    Changing the topic to other news, I've done my 7th spark chasing bikinis; Luckly I got some ones, sadly I didn't got what I wanted nor expected.

    • Total: 13 SSR = 4,3% rate
    • Characters: 2x Cagliostro(Summer), Eugen, Ilsa(Summer), 2x Jessica(Yukata), Korwa(Gold Moon), Kumbhira(Gold Moon), Tsubasa, Therese(Gold Moon)
    • Summons: Garula, 2x Satyr(Summer)

    Choosing a spark in summer is always a painful moment. This time I stared my screen for ~50min before going for my original target: Grand Ferry.

    I must say that I'm half prideful, half disheartned with my choice.

    Algo congrats on your ixabas. Now it's time to go full agni lord for GW :nokia:

    What? GW? Is this edible? I'm a C-tier slacker :sachi:.

    Well, I'm sorry, but I still hate fire as much as the first day. This is the element of 4+ ixabas or go home. The fact that I've spent more time farming those AES than any M2 grid and I'm still doing 300k autos makes me wanna kill myself.

    Well, I think this means I'm a M then  :vinty:. My poor 2-Ixaba Demi Agni was doing about 350k autos. Better, but not by much.

    But... I've sparked more Ixabas last Flashfest(results will come later), and now it's 4-Katanas(still Demi Agni though) Grid.
