  1. All megacrysts appear to drop on the first pickup (top right) and the last pickup points, so I’m just farming those. Probably the most efficient megacryst farming thus far.

  2. Definitely a great time to farm materials and TMRs. Any suggestions on TMRs to farm, aside from the obvious Zidane/Ludmille DW/DC? I do not have any *5 base units because I’m lucky like that. I was thinking Chizuru’s Blade Mastery, but I still have an open slot in my farm team. Any help would be appreciated.

    • How about Bartz? its a good tm if you dont have dw, i think it would go nicely with the BladeMastery.
      Im also thinking of good weapon tm’s like Cecil, Agrias, Mercedes.. And skills like Shantoto, Amarant, Ingus, etc.

      • I finished one DW and I have two more in the works. I think 3 DW will cover it. I did finish Excalibur too. I started to work on Shantoto, but magic is falling behind physical attackers quite a bit so I switched gears. I really wish I had not sold Miyuki back when I first started playing. I needed the space and did not have any units that used a katana. Dumb move because I never gotten another one since. Maybe I’ll start working on a Kaiser Knuckle for Firion *6 eventually.

  3. Oh, lucky you!!! I’ve been playing since the day after the ff9 banner, and i only just got my first zidane last week, so i have another week of grinding for my first DW. And same here, i made a mistake of selling miyuki, twice! thinking i done need it since i didnt have a Chiz back then. for the Magic user TM’s i guess its optional, but there have been cases that my ExDeath have been really handy. Specially in this Nian events (no ability), LB + nukes ftw. Goodluck on your Kaiser, should be easy since you can get multiple xiaos now. That will be very sweet with Snow’s TM.
