Orb Conversion is out! Yayifications!


First things I did today:


- Shattered my useless 1star and 2star abilities and duplicate abilities I got from events.


- Honed all Life Siphons to R4 (3 of them).


- Made Curaja R5.


- Honed all my -aja's to R4.


- Maduin to R4.


Still have plenty of orbs to spare! Though, my gosh. My gil actually took a dive...

I-I'm dead broke... horribly so... But I got 1 Lifesiphon to Rank 3 and Armour Breakdown to Rank 2 (it's the only Breakdown at Rank 1), so yay? I also manage to make some other 4 star abilities but I'm back to square one in terms of making Full Break...


Now the question now is: How does one farm Major Orbs without being ludicrously rich? It's 50,000 to turn 10 Greaters into 1 Major. To get 10 Major via that method, you're literally spending 1 million Gil! o_O

I did a 3 draw the other day and got Seph"s unique weapon that gives him Black Materia. Is that good? My brother was a little jealous over it.

There was a guy on the FFRK reddit who spent over $1200 real money just to pull it...

Oh wow. I have Sephiroth at level 37 and he does more damage than my level 50 Fang who has a 5 star sword. My brother also told me his friend at work spent over $50 and still never got it. Truthfully I wasn't even trying for it, I wanted Yuffie's Shuriken.

Damage-wise it's the best SSB in the game, arguably the best weapon in the game. I'd be jealous too but I'm happy i got Squall's SSB, almost as good as Sephiroth's.

I would also say that Squall's SSB is a close second. To truly complete with Sephy's it needs a secondary effect like Black Materia. What do you think the best RMs for a physical DPS, Mage, Speed and Support?

Physical DPS - Dragoon's Determination, Self Sacrifice, Pride of the Red Wings


Magical DPS - Devotion, Witch of Succession


Speed - Nothing really unless you want to throw an auto-haste on it. Not really recommending it since Celerity is a pretty weak skillset currently.


Support - Doctor Mog's Teachings or Mako Might if you have a good support relic. Otherwise, Auto-Haste.

I did a x3 draw and got three crummy shields. And then got a second copy of one of those crummy shields from the daily draw. Woohoo. So I guess Josef gets to stick around for a while longer.


(When you think about it, running around wearing nothing but a shield should get automatic relic synergy in FFII.)

i love this game.... though some how i ended up with a full on FF4 team (golbez, P.Cecil, Dk.Cecil, rydia, rosa)...... i guess i will have to wait til i get sethiroth to switch out Dk.Cecil for.....


also meteor and bahamut are way to expensive to upgrade.... T_T but totally worth it

@Yanfly: Seems I'm set for Magical DPS then, I assume Pride of the Red Wings is Dark Cecil's second RM? Also, what does the Speed stat actually do? Level I've noticed is the determining factor in ATB charge time, my Lv70 Cloud is faster than my Lv54 Kain who is miles faster stat wise.


@Einherijar: Have you tried creating/ honing Valefor? It's essentially a cheaper Bahamut, the damage multiplier isn't that big since most of the time you'll be dealing 9999 with either. Plus you can use those Major orbs for other abilities like Full Break :3

That's actually his third Record Material. You need to get his second one and then double Level Break him before it becomes available for dropping. As far as the speed stat, it increases how fast the ATB fills up (not the action gauge). Or at least, it should...


Sephiroth's BSB has been revealed! http://imgur.com/a/OSr25


True Form Masamune, BSB name: Reunion. 4 hit physical AoE.


Attack-Replacement-Skill: 2x Single-target attack ignoring Defence


Guard-Replacement-Skill: 4x Single-target Fire/Non-elemental attack


Though, one of the things I should note here isn't so much the BSB, but the fact there are three SSB's on one banner, which kinda hints at the power creep FFRK is going through. And while that impacts the game, I think it should impact our decision making when pulling for powerful offensive relics. In a game where powerful offense relics get replaced, you may find more mileage out of not pulling specifically for them, but instead, pulling for high utility relics. If you get an offensive relic at the side, that's wonderful. If not, no big deal since there will be more of them down the line.


On the other hand, utility relics have withstood the test of time for the most part. Sentinel Grimoire, Stoneskin 2, Hymn of the Faith, etc. are still used today. Even though Sazh's Boon got one-upped by SSB's variants of it, it doesn't detract from the fact it is still a useful Soul Break to use if you ever have Sazh on your team. This is unlike Cloud's offensive soul breaks: Braver got replaced by Cross Slash, which got replaced by Blade Beam, which got replaced by Fenrir Drive. You would never use one of those previous Soul Breaks. Utility characters, on the other hand, will always give you a bit of mileage. All Aerith's various Soul Breaks remain useful to this day as hers are all utility for the most part.


Aerith's blood on that Masamune though... ;A;

Ugh. After getting Quina and Beatrix I have no Idea what to do. I like pretty much every character in the game and there is only 5 slots.

Sephiroth is by far the best damage dealer in the game. Highest ATK stat, best SSB, (I think) the strongest weapon and best user of meta/reta (if you're into that).Dark Cecil comes close, but he matches Cloud and Squall at Lv80, both of which have MUCH more use and versatility.

Once you get his MCII, yeah, Especially when boss doesn't have resistance to sap.

This is unlike Cloud's offensive soul breaks: Braver got replaced by Cross Slash, which got replaced by Blade Beam, which got replaced by Fenrir Drive.



I agree with you. That's why it doesn't make sense to answer questions like "who is the best character in the game", "who is the strongest one", "who should I take in my team", etc, that some people ask from time to time.  It's all very situation.  It's depends on what 5*relics and SB you have. What event/dungeon you need to complete. What abilities do you have. What strategy do you like to use. What lvl of your characters and did you get MC and MCII.


Personally, I always have Tyro (wall), Yuna (AoE Heal) and Red XIII (Protectga+Hastega) or Sazh (Shellga + Hastega) in my team for 140+ events and dungeons. Two left places depends on particular dungeon and upcoming boss. They always different and almost always from synergy realm. It doesn't matter if they have unique SB or not.


Fight against Beatrix was the hardest one. Hardcore combination of AoE sap + Climhazzard (Reduce HP to 1 for every character). But eventually I was able to win.


My favorite strategy helped me again. Trio of SB + Planet Protector as roaming SB + Full Break + Armor Breakdown. I used the best abilities by the end of battle (she is much stronger and looks faster when her HP less than 40%). I didn't use AoE heal after first Climhazzard, I used drain strike, HP steal and Curaja to heal everyone until she used stock ability. Only then, after sap, it was time to use AoE heal (regen removes sap).  Still, the fight was very hard and unpredictable by the end of it. Can't win without good luck.

@Square_art: 5 man party of Retaliate cheeses Beatrix Ultimate. I've seen it, absolute madness...


This Orb Rush event couldn't have come at a better time! I was SEVERELY underleveled and under prepared for FF12 Tiamat bonus. But I threw my mythril to keep going and going. Almost maxed out all the FF12 character's levels, got Ruinga and Quake to Rank 4 and created and honed a second Tempo Flurry to Rank 3. After I push up Ashe and Penelo's level some more, Tiamat and Fran's MCII are MINE! 


Orb Conversion is quite literally the ultimate blessing...
