Don't worry, because even R200+ people leech raids. It's just time efficient.

Please tell me that in late game content you don't finish "raids" in 1/2 a second :michiru: if you do, something should be done about it. I thought that the point of raids is to team up with other players,  but if everyone can OTK the boss by their own there is just no point. 

Anyway, this persona 5 collab and the legfest did wonders for me. I managed to pull Wulf and Renie from the gacha (still not lucky enough to get summer zooey :makina:) and combined with the Jeanne that I already had and the Joker, I can now build a pretty solid dark party. I also farmed for the Morgana Car, which looks pretty decent. Now all there's left to do is get those Damascus crystals and tickets... I think I start to understand why they call this game Grindblue fantasy. 

On a side note, I started with 500 chips at the casino 3 days ago and now I have 2.5 million. Maybe it's time to try my luck at a real casino? :wahaha:

I don't know when you consider "late game", but actual content is most powercreeped:

  • Omega 1.0, Tier 1 raids = dies pretty fast, below 3min. It takes one or two average geared people to finish.
  • Omega HL raids, Tier 2 raids = takes 5~10min to end, depends of how many average players enters the raid.
  • Omega 2.0 raids = ever single player is racing here now. Expected lifetime ~2min.
  • Tier 1 HL raids = where I think late game starts, 5~12min. Being 6-man raids, each player affects the average speed.
  • Carbuncle raids = another set of 6-man raids, varies between a cakewalk to a shore. 7~15min I think.
  • Proto Bahamut HL = Paralysis made this thing a joke, so it's just a matter of how many racers you have. 6~10min.
  • Ultimate Bahamut = a real slog. It's not that hard or anything, but a high health pool + leechers drags down a lot. 8min++.
  • Ultimate Bahamut HL = the "end game raid". Never done this one (I lack confidance and friends).

There is a reason: time. Gathering materials is really just a matter of how much you grind, and leeching is the most efficient one.

Well, that's a relief. They are still short-lived, but at least last more than 10 seconds, which is my experience so far with raids. Most raids I enter I don't even get to hit the boss once actually. At least they refund the EP :leecher:

So now that I have farmed pretty much all I wanted from the Persona 5 event, I wonder what I should be doing. There is so much content in this game that I don't know where to start. I think I'm supposed to collect some Omega weapons and summons, but I still haven't reached the point where I can get the omega bosses down to 50% hp to get the MVP chest, nor do I know how to get there. I can still host raids and hope for the goddies to drop, but I wonder if I'd be wasting my Animas if I were to do that :michiru:

If I want to strengthen my party without getting that omega grid, I guess the logic course of action would be to just uncap my characters and skill level up my weapons, but I'm hesitant to invest too many resources in weapons that might not be good enough in the future, especially since I've been considering the possibility of starting to save up for a spark and one of my main skill fodder sources would be completely shut off. 

I'll leave here what I got so far:

Host chest have better chances at SSR weapons. At least for your "first element" it's worth, even more if it's light/dark as their SR weapons are useless on grid.

Uncap at least the first star of your characters to unlock their skills. About the weapons, you can safely skill level up to 3 or 4 the ones with ATK skill(depends of your main element). 

In the long run, you either farm more resources or drown with surplus fooder(my case).

Other than:

  • Reading the Early Game Prioritization Guide;
  • Use the Granblue EN Reddit;
  • GBF Wiki is your friend too;
  • Use the Favorite option to lock important stuff (aka proteck that Disparia, NOW);
  • Buy a weapon stash and throw your unused SSR there;
  • Don't touch weapons/summons on No Limit Crate unless you need them;

... You will have to ask (even though I think Reddit is a better place for questions)

Oh fuck. Yeah... something was telling me that perhaps putting all that pile of garbage into my inventory was not such a brilliant idea :wahaha:

Ok, that was really helpful, much appreciated :sachi: Now that I know what to do... let the grind begin.

So I've been recently working in my dark team, given the fact that the game has decided to give me a couple of dark SSR characters. I'm aware that light and dark are more difficult to farm, but oh well.

So this is what my progress looks like:

I got my baha weapon from the What make the sky blue event. Welp, now I need to get a hold of those Celeste Claws with my pendant farming and then skill level and uncap all my grid. It should take a while.

Looks like this thread is pretty much dead, but I'm gonna keep updating my progress just for the record.

Nearly two weeks after my last post, and thanks to the rise of the beasts event that has almost finished already, this is what my grid currently looks like:

Are you using them to draw this flash gala or are you saving them for sparking?

As I said like a month ago, I'm saving for a spark... and every time I see the flash gala banner it's torture.

Updating the state of my grid:

The basics are pretty much finished. I need to sk. level the baha, which is gonna be a pain, and get rid of that lance, but since it's MLB and sk lvl 10 I can't seem to find the right oportunity to do so.

As for the axes, eventually I'll want to replace them for claws, but that's only in the (hopefully not so distant) future when I manage to spark S. Zooey. For the time being, axes are even better than claws, not to mention that are infinitely easier to get (only have 2 claws as of now, and they are bought with pendants, Celeste didn't drop any in more than 1k runs -.-).

You must be a madman to spark this early... I've done the same thing and I wouldn't recommend to anyone.

At least keep Celeste Horn as Holy Saber/Bishop mainhand. Dark doesn't have easy spear options. 

Sadly Celeste Claws have terrible drop rates. I, for example, got only two from Celesboat(and one from HL version); two from Arcarum chests; the rest... pendants, you know.

I am :wahaha: But seriously though, I decided to go for dark as main, so what options do I have if zoi is a must? It's either that or yolo rolling and hope for the best. And the fact that the account is brand new only makes the process faster, so... It's true that it's getting painful to not be able to build other teams aside from dark and water due to lack of good SSR characters (and this GW is being a nightmare because of that), but on the bright side when I do manage to spark I'll get all I was lacking plus a free character of my choice. Sounds like a good deal.

Oh I hadn't thought about that. I was planning on using the lance as fodder for the higher sk levels of my baha weapon. You probably prevented me from making a mistake, so thank you!

So, look what I've got:

That's right. Zooey is coming home next flash gala (hopefully mid august). Yeah I know, it's not quite 300, 288 actually, but we are currently in a 200 crystals a day promotion, so counting that plus daily login rewards + coop and the new idol crap event, I should get there pretty easily.

Aside from that, this is what my grid looks like 2 weeks after my last post:

Spoiler

d7b1be9ae64f6d876d97b23318e596e0.png

Everything is sk lvl 10 except for the baha, which is lvl 7. In the meanwhile I'm working little by little in my future dark grid, which looks like this:

I'm also starting to pay a little more attention to other elements, now that I have my basic grid nearly done. I'm working on water and light, since I've got the most characters from those elements.

Whenever you can, please move your +4 to a Bahamut weapon. It will be better to cover other grids too. Takes less than a minute. Signed: ~your future grids~

Congrats on Sarasa flb! Man, I'm dying to die farming for my first eternal. Maybe I'll go for Sarasa too so that I can ground zero my way through Arcanum :leecher:

Done :nico:

So finally, after 4 months, the suptix came around, and it had to happen just before my spark. Feels bad, man. I'm very hesitant as to who to pick. My SSRs at the moment are the following:

Spoiler

f40980fe4919d5766b514559674ab503.png

My dick pick would be Narmaya, just because I love her design and her skill set, plus she'd work well in my future zoi enmity team. On the other hand I already have serviceable dark SSRs for a frontline (DJeanne/Zoi/Wulf), and Wulf benefits from my baha dagger (though it wouldn't be that big a deal getting a baha sword for Naru either). 

Now for the wiser choices, Altair is core for water and pairs decently with Yuel. With the water favored GW just around the corner he's a very tempting pick. My light could also use Seruel or Amira, another reasonable option if I say so myself.

Then we could go into especulative territory with a hypothetical wind or earth team. I like wind. I like how it has the most powerful f2p magna grid and you can make the best possible frontline with its two eternals, Seofon and Niyon. I wouldn't mind being a windmeme in the future, but unfortunately I don't even have one SSR wind character. Lancelot or Melissabelle could be especulative options. Perhaps after my spark I end up with some wind SSR chars.

For earth I was thinking DLF or Ayer.

So TL;DR I don't know where to start. I lack too many things in every element and the required experience to make a solid choice. May I get some help here from you? :yumiko:

Also wanted to share 43dd2d4a8ee6fdbe17bebe8da3a4924e.png. Yep, nearly done with the tutorial, yaaay.

My help here seems unnecessary; as you made good points about your current state and showed awareness over element's priorities. You are merely stuck over many players' common doubts: 'meta' pick/dick pick/next element focus/I don't wanna get a suptix moon.

Soo... instead of advices, I will shower some thoughts to complements what you already wrote:

TL;DR Choose someone that pick your attention and stat from there. Or roll a 1d6, I dunno. Waifu > Cute > Husband > Meta :reeee:, less chance of regrets. 

Ahem... now it's serious:

  • Fire: YOU IGNORED FIRE :reeee: BAKA BAKA BAKA :kosame:. As a Fire Erun main, I'm sad. But don't worry, when you feel like playing fire, I will be here(maybe).
  • Water: Unless you are going Tier B+ on U&F, being water favored doesn't make Altair better than your others choices.
  • Earth: You aren't thinking hard on this element, so I think it's a safe pass for now. 
  • Wind: If you like wind, go for it. Melissa is too selfish for starting; Lan-chan at least have all allies buffs; You could consider Korwa, but she is too slow for nowadays' standards.
  • Light: Both Amira and Seruel are good; both needs 5*uncap; Amira is better for general use, while Seruel shines on Atma Sword comps or if you need his Veil.
  • Dark: Your dark team is pretty stacked, true, but another dark character isn't bad at all. Out of element-resist events, you will most likely farm everthing else with dark, so it's good having options(both for optimal uses or personal matters).

I know, I haven't helped at all.

Aww I'm sorry :yumiko: The fact that its best characters are all limited (Bea, Sturm) or currently non obtainable at all (Anila) kinda puts me off. That and the fact that the magna I grid with colo canes is rather lackluster.

Water: Unless you are going Tier B+ on U&F, being water favored doesn't make Altair better than your others choices.

Welp last GW we did end up in tier B (bottom tier B though :leecher:), but yeah, my current water grid is just 6  0* levi daggers, not even at sk 10 (though I'll get there before GW I hope), no I'm not likely to be that helpful. 

33 minutes ago, SakashimA said:

Earth: You aren't thinking hard on this element, so I think it's a safe pass for now. 

Yeah, kinda. It's more like I haven't got a grid. If I happen to get some good earth chars I'll put some effort into this element. In the end you have no choice but to fully develop each and every element, what with this elemental resistance crap -.-" So it's just a matter of what to go for first for a faster progression.

Light: Both Amira and Seruel are good; both needs 5*uncap; Amira is better for general use, while Seruel shines on Atma Sword comps or if you need his Veil.

I'm leaning towards Amira because of the DATA up, very useful for a magna light that I've heard that tends to suffer in that aspect. Seruel's veil would be godlike for my Cele farming, but oh well :leecher:

Wind: If you like wind, go for it. Melissa is too selfish for starting; Lan-chan at least have all allies buffs; You could consider Korwa, but she is too slow for nowadays' standards.

I know that eventually those characters would be very good and useful, and statistically it's very likely that I get some wind characters while sparking. However, if I don't, I'dbe stuck with a character for which I have no use for the time being. That'd be kinda sad. As much as it pains me, I think I'll have to pass on wind this time around. (inb4 I draw s. jeanne or something)

I'm totally biased because I love gimmicky characters like Naru, but I'll try to offer a more or less reasonable argument for a plausible pick. Wulf is a great attacker with a 30% atk up passive and guaranteed TA. Enmity only makes him better. Naru however would allow me to cap def down along with DJeanne, and she has that sweet ODA and bonus elemental dmg which will be very useful once I cap dmg (not that hard I assume, with zoi and a claw grid). The DATA is an issue, but I'd be running 1 or 2 olden cortanas.

Seems like Dark Jeanne"s Anti-Reversal and Narmaya's Transient are both single-sided Def Down (aka. don't stack). I'm not really sure (I don't have Naru).

:michiru::salt::rubycry: I HAVEN'T ROLLED A SINGLE SSR SUMMER WAIFU :rubycry::salt::michiru:

...and this is the resume of my summer rolls(spark included). The End.

 

...Ohh yeah that's right; I've done my 3th spark and while it had a balanced quantity(23 SSRs), quality-wise was below expected:

  • SSR Characters: Agielba, Beatrix, Cain, Charlotta, Eustace(Moon), Forte(Moon), 2x Ghandagoza, Water Lancelot(Moon), 3x Summer Naoise;
  • SSR Summons: Gilgamesh, Gorilla, Grand Order, Neptune, Oceanus, 3x Summer Macula, Tezcatlipoca, Uriel, Zephyrus;
  • Fun fact: I rolled Almeida's weapon eight times; 5x summer ones, 3x normal ones. 

As for my spark target... given this non-waifu results, I almost gave up and choose a summer unit(probabily Ilsa); but after a long warm bath I renewed my resolve and got Vajra.

Another day, another spark. This one I've done on New Year's free rolls.

-SSR Characters: Altair(Moon), Baotorda(Moon), Beatrix(Dark)(Moon), Clarisse (Light), Kumbhira, Lady Grey(Moon), Lilele, Rackam(Moon), Rosetta, Sarunan(Dark)(Moon), Scathacha(Moon), Silva(Water), Vane(Moon);

-SSR Summons: Bahamut, Cybele, Gabriel, Morrigna, Prometheus, Tsukuyomi, Vortex Dragon;

-Spark target: Anila.

 

In other news, I got one of my favorite erune: Korwa. Pretty amusing, considering her release was a bit after the English release.
