    Sharing my progress really motivates me when I look back at my early updates, and makes me really excited for the future. Maybe it can do the same for you too, so go ahead and give it a try if you feel like it! Damn son, lucksacc detected Gratz on the spark. Was it a good one to top it off?
  2. Granblue Fantasy [English Language]

    Congrats on Siete and Nier! Nier I'm still working on, but I also managed to get Siete FLB last GW and his really, really nice to use after his rebalance. I thought he'd be weaker cause he lost his crit ability, but the fact that they gave him a unique atk mod instead kinda makes up for it, at least if your grid is developed enough. Kinda sad you can't use him for off ele otk anymore, though! ------ Happy new year everyone! I hope you are having fun these holidays. It's been a couple months since my last update, and there's some fairly good progression I'm very excited to share with you all. I'm currently at rank 193, which you know, it's not very relevant anymore, but I guess it's good to have as reference. The party HP nodes I got at 185 really helped with faa though! I can't wait to get the rank 200 ones. Well, time to show (off? not really ) my teams and grids. Since I don't want to spoil the excitement, I will do it in what I consider a worse-to-best order. Also I won't be sharing all my setups because it'd get too long, so I'll just limit myself to my general purpose teams, leaning slightly towards those I'd use for fairly high defense like GW nm100, but not so extreme as nm150. That means I won't be sharing OTK, faa-san teams and the like, unless anyone is interested, ofc. The exception will be my OTK light, since it's relevant for the upcoming GW. Alright, enough blabbering, let's get started! WATER Yeah... fuck you, water. I've given up using my kengo for any fights other than OTK stuff, cause it just doesn't work without Vajra, and I don't have either the characters or the appropiate grid to make a crit oriented staff team either. To make things worse, as a newbie I decided to stone the fish instead of my varuna, cause at the time I thought it'd be really convenient to have it to use off else (also wind GW was coming and I couldn't possibly get Huang Long, so that allowed me to build an OTK setup), and I naively thought I could just use varuna friends cause for ougi builds with 3 balls like mine, fish x varuna was the optimal anyway. So yeah, no double varuna either. Stuck with a 300k autos grid till who knows when. Sadder story than my life. Definitely my worst team, and my worst mistake to this day in this game. Give me my 9 bars back. DARK Second worst team. When you see the grid you might think it's quite alright, at least for magna standards. Yeah sure, a parazonium mh would be nice, but otherwise is a fairly optimized grid (the opus' key is up for debate, but let's leave that aside). The main problem lies within my characters. This ain't 2017 GBF. DJeanne and Zoi will no longer carry your dark. The first is rather useless, while the second is only a conjunction bot that people tend to kill with Death's call when she has done her work nowadays. Next GW I'm FLBing Six, and I hope that greatly improves my situation. I'm also slowly working on Nier, as I said. I already have FLB Death, so just lacking a lot of dark astras atm, that I've not been getting cause I decided to spend my points on sunstones first. But I'll get there, eventually. Aside from that, it's pretty much the same grid I used for GW. The only differences are that I got my akasha blade, and FLB'd the seraphic. FIRE OOOH YEAH BABY. Running away from magna fire like one would from the plague! And this is, ladies and gentlemen, my first attempt at doing so. A very scuffed highlander grid that is already at this point several times better than any magna fire grid I've ever had. Yes, I know, that seraphic and that opus need to be fully skill leveled, and that cane ULBd. Don't judge me, this grid is really new, and I'm lacking a lot of skill fodder after ULBing my opus weapons and other shit you will see in the future. My plans for the future are 2. More or less short term, there's this: Yup, slowly working my way towards a prom grid. Long term, I'd like to get my hands on 2 more ixabas (or even 3 more, but that only if the gacha decides to bless me, I ain't sparking/annitixing that many). Fire has become really fun to play after getting FLB sun, Esser, Alanaan... The burst is really enjoyable, so I want to give the ele some love. EARTH Not much changed for my earth grid aside from the seraphic FLB and opus ULB, which you know, it's a pretty huge change in its own right, but the grid still looks the same. Honestly, it's a quite alright team. Does very decent damage, has high hp, some good utility in S.Vira and Alex. I'm pretty happy about it. BUT! I do have some big plans for the future as well. I'm not so far from FLB The Hanged Man, and I happened to roll a Titan. If I somehow manage to get an Ichigo, I will probably go for a Caim grid. That might take a while, though, but the idea is on my mind. WIND I'll be honest, I love my wind. It's my go-to ele for ubhl and faa-san. I managed to get Grimnir while sparking this roulette, so I built an ultima staff and that allows me to use 3 harps and Tia x Tia again (after ULBing my opus I was using Tia x Grim with 2 harps, cause without a way to give you consistent wind atk up that setup is better), which is great against higher defense content due to the crits. Not for ubhl though, since you keep getting dispeled, so for that I'm still using Tia x Grim, with 2 harps, and Siete instead of Grimnir. I also have big plans for wind in the future. I managed to roll a Zeph and I have 2 Love Eternals and obviously the Vortex from Grimnir. Morrigna is literally unfarmable now with my pleb EU ping, but once it slows down, maybe after magfest, maybe when wind GW ends, I do plan to build a Unius Zeph Grid. That's some really good shit! For now, I got my few unius just from daily hosts ever since the first day epic weapons were released. LIGHT Oh boy, we're finally here. Next GW element. ULBing all those swords took all my skill fodder and some years of my lifespan for sure. Magna light is pretty bad, at least according to what everyone says. Well, while I don't think it's great by any stretch, it kinda works for me due to having pretty damn good characters. Yes, I know, I am not capping on nm150. It sucks. It's a big middle finger to all f2p players. 25 fucking defense, wtf. Gotta validate the whales, I guess. Fuck you KMR. But well, ranting aside, I got lucky and got my hands on Grand Jeanne, which solved my big problem with Piggy, which is her poor MA rate in my sword comp. Now I can actually keep her reckless abandon up all day. The cosmos sword FLB was also a nice addition. It's better than a mitt bow in that grid for any HP mark, so that's nice and makes me a little less reliant on stamina. Oh, also Lucio's rebalance. What a fucking GOD! He literally does half of my damage. As for OTK, well, I think I still need to polish it a little bit more, but the general idea is something like this, with HuangLong as support: Probably I need to change my opus key to skill cap up, and put an ultima sword with ougi cap up there, but you get the gist of it. I am lucky to have pretty good characters for light OTK, which is fairly difficult otherwise, so I'll make it work somehow. Alright, that's it I guess! I hope I didn't bore you excessively with my unsolicited rambling. To finish this off, as always, I'll show you my spark progress atm. It's worth mentioning that as I said I sparked this last flash during roulette. My rates were pretty trash, but I value quality over quantity, and since I got Grimnir and G.Jeanne and got to spark an Ixaba, I'm pretty satisfied. It's not spectacular, but it works for me. Much better than my last spark, anyway. Anyway, here's what I have right now: So that's 223 rolls even after having sparked! I really, really hope I can get to 300 in 2 months when Doggo is most likely gonna make a comeback. We'll see. That's it for now. I'll update my progression once there is something worth sharing, though by the looks of it, from now on it should be progressing pretty slowly, since my magna grids are pretty much finished. I wish you all a fantastic new year and see you guys around!

    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) Then let the whales and people that already have ULB opus carry you. Yes, it feels terrible, but hey, you can pay back the karma by some day in the future helping new players get into faasan I'd also really want to have Pholia and Monika. And Lecia, who is best girl (fite me). But you know... it's not like I really need them, and as a mostly f2p player I've already kind of accepted that I won't never be able to catch'em all as if they were pokemons; so I just try to get what I need the most

    Since my last post was like 3 months ago and dark GW is starting today, I guess a little update is due. 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. This is the grid I'm going with for GW. Unfortunately during my last spark I wasn't able to get my hands on Grand Ferry (or any particularly good stuff for that matter, which is why I didn't bother to post my results) so I'm still stuck in Zoi hell. Anyway, I think it's a pretty good improvement compared to last time. Don't @ me for that MLB seraphic. I have the qilin&longdong animas but just no quartz after FLBing 3 avatar staves. Another thing I wasn't able to get in time is my FLB Death. But at least I was able to get her to SSR. As for my OTK setup, this is it: It's nothing special and it relies on conjunction, but at least it's 3 buttons which I guess is ok-ish... (dual arts+conjunction+longdong call). Aside from that, I don't think I've made much improvement in other elements. Not anything worth mentioning, at least. I finally got my FLB water opus, got 4 MLB AES done (and won't bother farming the 5th one), and oh yeah, I guess my light has also seen a bit of an upgrade. It had to be done in order to properly farm Avatar. A fun little story is that I farmed the 5 lumi swords just before KMR felt like giving us a MLB one a couple weeks ago. Oh well, having 6 will be good for Faa-san anyway. As for new characters, I got my first evoker, the e-sports old man. So now my team is looking good, if not for the fact that I'm still a magna pleb. Now I'm working on my Nier (as you can infer from my SSR Death) and I think after that I'll go for Caim. Hopefully I'm able to get him before earth GW. Gacha-wise, I'm once again getting close to a spark. I'm sparking doggo as soon as she comes back next year. I'll pray to kamisama to bless me with at least either Ferry or Cain. I don't want to spark on legfest anymore!! And that's it I guess. See you in my next spark if my results are worth sharing, or if not, probably I'll update my progress when light GW is close anyway. Mata!
  5. OMFG That is so crazy!! Not in a million years would have I expected a sequel and much less an anime adaptation of such an old VN. I'm so hyped but also very scared about how it will turn out. If they are reviving the saga they better have something worth to tell!
  6. It's finally here... MAGGOT BAITS!!!!

    Yeah... I'll admit that I'm pretty curious on how bad it could possibly be. But not so much to actually buy it and much less invest so many hours into it I'll stick to my boring, wholesome vanilla shit.
  7. Granblue Fantasy [English Language]

    That they are... 3.6k atk stat, massive ark mod and medium stamina. It's singlehandedly the most retarded weapon in the game. I'm so not looking forward to this GW. I'm in a fairly competitive crew and we actually do MR and push for wins so yeah...
  8. Granblue Fantasy [English Language]

    When you get to lower HP values it gets higher... like maybe 500-600k at 75-50% HP, so long as you have sun flb and auto cap up in ultima or opus... but considering agni grids are doing like 800-900k on pretty high defense content like TiaMal... yeah, it just feels so discouraging. This is a disparity that you just don't see in other elements. Not to mention that if you don't have Anila, like me atm (though not for long ), magna is literally unplayable. For the time being I'm also working on e-sports old man Alanaan. I doubt I'll get him before GW, but oh well. He should help a little, I hope! Algo congrats on your ixabas. Now it's time to go full agni lord for GW
  9. Granblue Fantasy [English Language]

    It's been so long since I updated my GBF progress. I haven't quitted the game. Well, for the most part at least. During busy times or just times of burnt out I did put it aside, but then picked it back up for short, intensive periods. I'm currently at rank 169. And that wouldn't matter that much if not for the fact that I practically didn't slime (the only exceptions being the very few cases where I was in a hurry for leveling a character to 100), so I guess it's a reasonable way to measure my efficiency. Well, without further ado, here are my grids and teams. WIND Your average M2 grid I guess. I'm using Nio/Scath/Monkey, so probably it'd be a good idea to get an ultima fist or something. EARTH This grid was a bitch to farm at the beginning. In the end I gave up, went to work on wind, and came back to Alex mines once it was decent. I'm using a Sieg/Alex/Okto team. How nice it'd be to have Cain and go ultima katana meta, but for the time being, I guess Sieg works... WATER Yes, I lucksacked 3 balls. Which is only more painful considering I don't have Doggo. I will have a spark ready for her by the time she comes back though. Until then... well, water doesn't exist for me. I need to work on my 3rd harp for full ougi memes. I should also go grab the Opus, but I don't have the quartz nor the fodder to level it up atm, so who cares. As I said, water doesn't exist. FIRE Semi spear team with Shiva/Esser/Athena. 3 of those AES are MLB, the 4th one is at 1*. I plan to get one more drop and then grab the other copy from the shop next month. I won't bother to farm the 5th AES considering I'm probably going ULB canes in the future, when I spark Anila, which I'll talk about later. This is the grid I'm currently working on, you know, for GW and stuff. I remember @SakashimA saying that fire was his favorite element and that when I came to appreciate it I got back to him. 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. DARK Sad times for my dark. And I started GBF as a dark main to boot! I don't have any of the meta characters so I'm stuck in 2017 meta with sword team DJeanne/Zoi/Olivia. So, why do I not have even one avatar stick? Well... LIGHT Because my light sucks even more. Probably. I don't know, they both suck, so since light sucks I can't farm dark, and since dark sucks I can't farm light. Such is life. Well, that's obviously not exactly true. I could and should farm at least my 4th chev sword. Yes, I should. As for the team I'm using, it's Seruel/Potato/Lucio. I'll probably switch Lucio for Jeanne once I get her to lvl 100. And that's it I guess. Another important thing I want to share is that... Yes, indeed. My spark is ready, and my target is Anila so that my plebian magna fire can suck a little less for GW. As everybody I guess I would've liked to spark on flash gala, but I guess it's not too bad, considering there's plenty of characters from premium gala I'd really want to have. Cain, Ferry, Lecia, Pholia. Wouldn't mind Eugen or Rackam either since they are getting their FLBs soonish (I already have Katalina). And that's about it. I guess I'll post the results of my spark next premium gala! May the salt be with you.
  10. Why Visual Novels?

    Well, of course most stories can also he told in another medium. That's why get constantly get anime adaptations from manga and LN, or movie adaptations from literature. There are some stories that would only work in a certain medium, but those are a minority. That doesn't mean though that each medium doesn't have its strong points. For me VN are more immersive. The visuals and the soundtrack go a long way to make it a much more powerful and emotional experience than your regular novel or LN. Not to mention when you get to see the "what if" of a story, for VNs that have a route system. The fact that VNs doesn't NEED to exist in order to have story telling doesn't mean that they don't feature very appealing points for people who like them.
  11. Kyoto Animation arson

    This is so fucked up. I hope that bastard rots in jail.
  12. Well you just kinda have to accept that in anime land life ends when you get out of high school. Sometimes quite literally
  13. What Anime are you watching now?

    I'll be a good person and save you some hours of your life. The first 4 episodes were the only decent part of the show. If you didn't enjoy even that, don't bother. It gets much, much worse.
