It does feel really early after the wait between the first two, I spent all my raid coins on tuesday so I would have too many tomorrow to deal with and I kinda regret it now.

Those are some sexy imperils on barbie!

Zarg is going to be better than people expect. His LB is awesome and the break resist / removal is going to be very handy.

Most times he'll be better than MS Nichol since most of his buffs are stronger.

He'll probably sync pretty well with merc Ramza since Ramza can feed him LB. Turn 1 140% buffs are pretty sweet too, definitely not a unit I'd be disappointed to have two of. His lack of group wide MP recovery still kinda sucks but at this point things either die fast enough that you wont run out of MP or you have healers along who can do it.

I mean I would hope so seeing as you're comparing a 6* to a 7*. Once Nichol hits 7* though...

To be honest, 7* CG Nichol doesn't bring that much more than he already does. here are the 4 new skills he gets.

ST 3 Turn Add Water to Attacks

(Available Turn 1) 4 Turn Cooldown: ST 100 MP Recovery & ST Remove ATK/MAG Debuffs & ST 1 Turn +175% ATK/MAG & ST Fill 5 LS

(Available Turn 1) 6 Turn Cooldown: AoE 3 Turn +150% ATK/DEF/MAG/SPR & Fill Summon Gauge 2-4 ES

(Available Turn 1) 6 Turn Cooldown: AoE 3 Turn 40% Damage Reduction & Fill Summon Gauge 2-4 ES


I think he can't dual-cast the Water Imbue and Damage Reduction skills.

An imbue is kinda a bit deal as well as 175% buffs if you're only running 1 or 2 damage units. But that said there is always going to be something better, if we dismissed units based on whats on the horizon being better we'd rarely pull for anything but king mog farming. That zarg can also function to chain gives him a niche that other support focused units usually don't fill so he has his place.

Also 7* Nichol doesn't have to bring much more. He's already highly competitive. But he also gets decent magic finisher and magic chaining spells and a passive AoE autolimit. Also gets his enhancements

Also builds a nice amount of esper orbs for a non summoner unit. Outside of situations where you need an evade tank who isn't your tank, which I can't think of many, nichol offers stronger buffs, more applicable utility, and easier access to all of his kit.

If we're going to say that Nichol gets nothing from his 7* then Zarg honestly got even less.

Also not really sure what the Zarg chaining hype is about. It's pod frames, which most support units should be equipping anyway.

The fact that 6* CG Nichol is comparable to a fully enhanced 7* Zarg really says something. Zarg can still fill multiple roles really well and has some beefy mitigation, but I wouldn't really put him near Nichol on a support level.

That said, use what you have.

Such as this build which hits 100% draw attacks with provoke from golem while having 100% evade and reaching 1050 attack using dual wield.

Zarg is still probably the best unit for covering multiple roles but I've yet to hit a point where I'm so limited on space that I need a unit to cover 3-4 different roles at once.

I'm sure it will have niche uses... like say a fight where a few turns into it you need the provoke but not really before (like say those mobs that like to snort you when they get low) but in a situation I want provoke starting turn 1 (ie most ones you want a provoke) you wont likely want to choose to not have buffs that turn

Yep. Complete opposite of Rem for me. Rem is great because the role she normally inhabits, healing, doesn't require overwhelming power and is often left without ***to do half the time. She can function as the best MP battery in the game, a chainer, a finisher, she provides on demand AoE reraise without having to spend an LB or unlock it through contrived means (as a bonus it also comes with some moderately strong defensive bonuses), and she's cute a f.

Zarg inhabits a role that not only has very little room in their rotation to throw out utility normally (this is true for him as well), but his utility is just so niche. How often do you need a provoke tank that isn't your main tank? How often do you need your support unit to provide extra chains? As opposed to things like party wide limit gauge filling and esper gauge filling, this just seems not very useful to me.

Again, not saying Zarg is bad. But people saying he's better than Nichol or a gamechanger (on reddit mostly) are *** speds.

Eiko kind of a bore for me. But at least nice to have a 7* smn for those occasionally times I want a smn. Speaking of her is there any real reason to farm the TMR for both of her? Ie would I ever realistically use it on anyone besides her 7* form cause I'm wracking my brain and keep coming up with well at least it's not quite as bad as Lightnings

Merc Ramza can make use of her TMR, but the only real other application aside from Eiko herself is Lunera to double proc her passive with Angel Flute and Tinkererbow, but I don't know if that's even such a great option when she's 7*

Not yet they haven't, which is great cause it'd be a waste of a slot until we get the "Every weapon is open" IW. Should get that next since we have now had every weapon type besides instruments.

Lots of new stuff for Halloween. 2 new units, a magic tank dd support and a dd, and 7* for existing Halloween 5*s. Personally think I'll skip, not particularly enthusiastic about any of the new units or the new awakenings as they don't sound like they'll replace anything on my team. Barbariccia and I.Nichol enhancements could be nice though.

Valkyrie Profile next week too. Skipping, never played don't care and not hipster enough to pretend that I care.

Hoarding for Cbristine continues.

Honestly loved VP1, 2, and Plume as a kid so I'll try for Freya. Even though she isn't that great I still absolutely loved her in the games. Yea Arngrim STMR and he's cool, Lunneth is also amazing, but Freya is badass.

Actually second thought, I'll just skip and hoard for Xenogears and assume every banner is bait until Xenogears.

Is anyone able to put up something that can chain with Hyoh with paralysis resistance and a light or fire weapon (I can adjust my Hyoh).

Trying to clear the Fenrir battle and paralysis is ruining things right now.

Feel like if it's just para on a friend Hyoh that's ruining the battle that likely means there's more going on that's ruining the battle??
