If you do enough bahamuts and have decent luck you can just lb it with the rusty weapons that drop. But if you have the mats and skill ups ready, you could just do casino. The damage is a nice jump, but if you cant skill it up and change it to SSR then it won't do as much yet. It is up to you really.
*I added a weapon optimization section. If anyone has any further questions about optimizing their weapons, feel free to ask. Thanks.
Thanks for writing all this. I started playing a month or so ago and used the Japanese wiki as reference. Still a lot of good information there, but I feel you've covered some places they haven't and done it in a much more clear manner. I learned quite a few things. I really appreciate it. Currently rank 56 or so just under 30k war potential or so with most jobs. I'm looking forward to getting to the point I can start working on the Magna weapons.
When we pick the element for GW weapons in the process of getting the SSR character, are there specific elements we should be picking? Like to match the element of the SSR character that is tied to the weapon? Or any element is fine?
nori I don't think there's any confirmed information about that yet. We don't even have those characters out. Only pictures, posters, speculations and 4koma. I think when Cygames updates the game with those characters - people will notice and update the info.
Also since there's been a story update, someone should probably add what new 'important items' do: Green Stone with a blue background: increases Earth exp gain when strenghtening by 5%. A burnt paper with a brown background: This one says it increases 'skill exp by 5%'. Maybe it means it increases chance for a successful skill-up by 5%?
Yeah, you are right. 2x 120% will do more damage. It doesn't seem to matter if its 50/50 or 60/40 though and its a little bit better than 70/30. Difference is about 11.15 (70/30) vs 11.3 (60/40 or 50/50). At that point it is probably more about what you have more of, magna weapons or normal. Thanks for pointing that out.
Risend, I just read the weapon optimization section and having a few questions.
According to this formula: Basic Damage = Attack Power * (1 + Magna Attack % * Magna Summon) * (1 + Other Attack % + Character Up) * (1 + Elemental Weakness + Element Up) * (1 + Unknown Attack %)
If I use Bahamut summon, where does the 100% ATK boost goes in the formula. Element Up? Does that mean if I use 3 Celeste weapon and 7 other weapon, the magna weapon atk up % won't get boost by Bahamut?
I have a question that I've been wondering since I started playing the game.
How does 'defense' works? I don't see any status indicate defense yet all those different skill and job master bonus has things like 'Defense Up'. I can understand the damage cut % but what about defense? I know that Sara's Defense UP 10 times cut damage done by a whole lot but then it's just weird to have 2 type of wordings for same effect. (DMG Cut and DEF Up)
