I had more trouble with Phantom Tora's damage spike than any of the other phantoms.

The fact that the world exists means nobody has had a TRUE 'everything bagel' yet. Twitch

Eh, the only one I had any real trouble with was Phantom Nia, and that was mainly because I didn't get the chance to switch to a new set of blades after having both the party and Pythra yanked away

What's great about Amalthus is that he spawns right next to a pit and you can very easily knock him into it and end the battle in seconds.

Tora and Zeke is the hardest phantom fight purely because there's two of them.

Also it's super annoying that I need Patroka to see Akhos and Mik's Heart to Hearts, because she ain't fuckin appearing for me.

Zeke and Tora were easy to handle for me, but that's because I had to use Electra to push back against Morag's attacks. What worked on Morag certainly worked on Zeke & Tora.

And if anything, Mikhail's always the missing link for me in terms of Heart to Heart requirements, given that he's only available so late. Cressidus' affinity chart tends to get completed later than sooner.

At least getting Mik is super easy and doesn't rely on the fucking RNG

I'm pretty sure Rotbart and Hayreddin exist for that purpose. An inversion of A Taste of Power, if you will.

Current main party Blade setups

Rex: Mythra, Akhos, Roc
Morag: Brighid, Mikhail, Aegeon
Zeke: Pandoria, Obrona, Azami

Ideally, Zeke would be using Herald, but I don't like him having three of the same element

I've farmed 95 Legendary Core Crystals. I can reach 0.6% chance each for KOS-MOS, so this batch gives me 43.54% chance of obtaining her.

You don't want to use Obrona on Zeke. He, along with Rex, are terrible with Twin Ring-esque weapons.

May 15th 2019 at 5:22:50 PM

Hmmm? Fyi to everyone salting over NG+ Blades, they're all available in the story. You can pull them before that but you'll get their cores if you just play until they exit the story normally.

No you don't. I didn't get Sever's core at the end of Chapter 3.

[up][up] Her passives are super good tho

It would have been nice to get the Tornan blade-blades after the chapter in which they get vaporized. Maybe give them actual sidequests too.

[up]I'd still much prefer to use Obrona on Nia anyway, given she has the best Twin Rings arts. Obrona's passives work on just about anyone.

Zeke's Twinblade arts:

Electroshade Twist: Critical recharge
Bewitching Divide: Increased power when cancelled
Thunderslam: AOE / Increased damage on aerial foes
Florid Spiral, AOE / Increased damage from the back

Nia's Twinblade arts:

Papillon Dance: Break / Critical recharge
Cheetah Scratch: Increased power when cancelled
Tricksy Loop: AOE / Increased power from the side
Lustrous Heal: Heal party

Pretty much the same except Nia has Break and a Heal, and I have other people in my party who can do those things.

But why wouldn't you take it if it was free? There's pretty much nothing Zeke offers that Nia can't already do.

But with driver combos and blade combos, you don't really need raw damage. It's pointless.

If you're doubling up on Zeke and Electricity, you may as well go with Herald over Obrona anyway. Not that you need any more electrical power since you also have Akhos on Rex.

Looking it over, I might move Obrona to someone else, since Pandoria already does a lot of what she does

ED: This is for serious battles, mind. For grinding and stuff I use Adenine on Zeke.

EDED: Zeke has three cannon blades atm: Azami, Sheba, and Herald

Pretty much. It's one reason why I avoid elemental duplication on individual drivers like the plague, never mind two blades of the same element and combat role (though I'm willing to overlap Driver Combo arts in some cases, mostly Break due to how common it is).

You seem to be missing Ice and Ground in your current setup. I'd at least replace Obrona with Cressidus, Nim, or Ursula. Maybe replace Mikhail with Theory, or Azami with the blades I just mentioned. You gotta go full rainbow in a serious battle, even with Pneuma's talents.

Patroka is a Ground blade, maybe I'll use her if I ever get her

Is she any good on Zeke?

May 15th 2019 at 7:11:56 PM

Zeke's pretty slow with his Megalance Smash, but it's better than nothing. Launch extending accessories are your friend. Patroka may be better off on Morag. What I say about Patroka pretty much applies to Wulfric, as they are identical in element and weapon type.

The only Megalance I adamantly put on Zeke is Praxis, because reasons.

Wulfie vs. Patty.

Wulfric has better personality while Patroka has better skills (and doesn't eat up Core Chips).

Team Rex and Team Morag are pretty good. Team Zeke may benefit from T-elos.
