Beat my first player online. They were the final boss before reaching silver rank 2. Came down to the wire big time, but in the end it came down to my cloud Aruru and his Moon Christine Junna. It was all over.

Indeed.

The Yoshitsune & Benkei event is officially underway in Revue Starlight ReLIVE, focusing on the stage girls of Rinmeikan Girls' School. The prize for grinding the event is the "Benkei" of the story, Tamao, while the 4-star gacha pull for the event is the "Yoshitsune" of the story, Yuyuko.

The boss is of the Moon attribute, therefore it's weak to Cloud attribute characters such as Musketeer Karen/Hikari and Pirate Aruru/Misora, as well as the two event girls themselves. Remember: Yuyuko will remain a permanent part of the gacha pool even beyond the event, but Tamao and her potential bloom crystals can only be acquired during this event! So if you plan on using her and maxing her out, you'd better get to grinding!

I woke up early and did some grinding already, but now I'm heading back to sleep. Best of luck to all of you ReLIVE players on the event.

Take a drink everytime Rui says Tamao senpai.

Good lord.

5 starred Tamao and have 1 of the three last potential crystal grand prizes. But now the real drag begins.

I actually do worse against the third boss with Tamao even after having her at level 70 and rank 6...
Does shoving Hikari slightly out of the front line impact me that badly? Also the 4 star gacha servant hits like a weed on the boss and I've just been relying on a guest Hikari to do damage instead. Ugh, neither of these new girls seem promising whatsoever... and no one fucking puts boss up memoirs on their event girls. How are people this stupid?

The biggest threat with the third boss is running out of turns.

Having Tamao in front of Hikari is the best thing for you to do, because it means Hikari (who doesn't have nearly the durability that Tamao does) isn't getting hit as often. Can you post a screenshot of what you've been using for the boss battles?

I actually didn't know the memoirs affected guest units until you brought it up, and I just checked the subreddit and apparently it does. Knowing this now, I just switched my Phantom Nana's memoir (in the guest units) to the event one, and since (I think) we're already friends in the game, you can use my Phantom Nana whenever you need it.

Well I took Tamao out of the party for awhile and was using my original team

Where the 3 star Mahiru was dead weight and the other three did all the work and had better luck for some reason. But it feels like one additional rank up for Tamao has made all the difference since then.

Now shes not dead weight and the third boss is actually going down more reliably than before so... I guess everything is good for now. Hit a wall with rank up pieces at rank 6 though. Not gonna try boss 4.

5 more grand prizes and 270 items left in the lottery.

Oh my, I thought I used the new imgtc domain...

I would say the best option would be to use all three of your Cloud attribute stage girls and just don't bring a fourth girl at all. Bringing a dead weight girl simply means less chance that you'll get the good attacking moves for the ones you do want attacking. That setup plus a good support girl (like another Hikari, or Phantom Nana) should be good enough to take down the third boss with little trouble. Getting Aruru to 5 stars and level 70 would be a helpful boost as well, if you can do it relatively soon.

This is what I've been using, and I can consistently beat the third boss even when auto-battling.

Sometimes the .ws domain still accidentally gives me .com links. When it does, just change the link to .ws and it'll work.

That's a good point. My moon Mahiru is good, but overall contributes the least out of the others. Down to 3 it is.

And I did have the potential crystals to level Aruru to 70. Now to see how this changes things.

Best of luck, let me know how it turns out. If you can get to the point where you can consistently beat the third level boss (especially if you can do so even while auto-battling) then that would be very helpful for your event grinding.

As for me, I'm done grinding ReLIVE for the day and I'm focused on Girls Frontline at the moment.

I got pretty lucky and got the last potential bloom crystals to finish her up with 210 pulls left in the third lotto, which is way faster than I expected to. Not sure if I'll keep grinding for the other rewards or if I'll stockpile stamina for the next event, which I believe is the Maya/Claudine Aladdin event.

I'm gonna switch over to Girls' Frontline and see if my good luck carries over to the shotgun rate-up event going on now.

These submarine missions are pretty great for drops. Now that I have two submarines, I should play the chapter eight one more often to try for Maya. It'd be more helpful to get upgraded (non-blue) equipment first, though. =|

I haven't talked about new game releases in a while, but I stumbled upon two interesting ones...

First off, a new RWBY mobile game just came out in China. A notable plus side that I'm seeing in the comments/reviews on it is that new characters are unlocked through normal gameplay and not through gacha, while the gacha element in the game revolves around equipment, cards, and other unlockables. It also introduces some original characters, like many mobile game adaptations of anime series do. Obviously a downside is that it's only in Chinese and it requires making a Bilibili account, plus it looks like some players think the grind to unlock characters is a bit slow. But a slow grind is still better than it being all up to the whims of the RNG.

I might try it if it ever gets an English release, but I probably won't download this Chinese version.

https://apps.qoo-app.com/en/app/6751

Also, an English version of an apparently long-running Saint Seiya mobile game (that I had no idea existed) recently came out. It's sadly not on the US App/Play Stores, but for a Saint Seiya fan looking for a bit of fun nostalgia, it might be worth downloading from QooApp and trying out

I beat it using a 21k light team with one second left in the clock.

This fight has been a wake up call for old timers.

Someone recommend a super easy gacha to me

Revue Starlight Relive
- Bosses without 99999999999 HP and not requiring you to have the newest SSR to beat.
- Infini skip without having to farm.
- For the love of god no individual's EQ on the unit you wishes to use because F U Epic Seven.
- Easily max your unit in 1 week or less without spending more than 30 mins each day.

ReLive has been a breath of fresh air from all the sucky sucky vampire gacha in the seas, the points above even made a 1% gacha rate fun despite he horrendous rate.

Finally got the last potential crystals with 30 damn lottery slots left. Since they have an inherent need to immediately roll out a new event the instant the last one ends, seems like this is my only time to actually go through the main story missions.

So an Inuyasha mobile MMO came out today.

https://apps.qoo-app.com/en/app/7525

Apparently it looks really good for a mobile game and they got the original Japanese VA's from the anime to voice the characters in the game too, but it takes up 5 gigabytes of space to download and play it and (as usual) it's not available in English. Another case of "if you were a fan of the anime, it might be worth trying out", but this time you also need to have a phone that can actually run the game well... which I'm not so sure I do.

I can't really think of anything that hits all 4 bullet points.

Dissidia Opera Omnia has 1, 3, and 4, but not 2. You can't skip anything, not even limited skips.

El Chronicle has 1, 2, and 3, but I've been playing for like over 2 months now and I am not even remotely close to maxing even a single unit.

Dragalia also suffers from not having infini skips and you actually can't skip most content that matters even with limited skips. Can't skip any master IO, Dragon, Advanced Dragon, or special event missions.

I played Valkyrie Anatoma for a bit and the barrier for entry is just too high. I was struggling to complete basic missions just to get low tier evolution materials.

out of the stuff I've played, I think El Chronicle comes the closest to matching your preferences. Let me give you a bit of a run down of what it's like.

Characters are free to unlock (ignore the $99.99 packages, they say "unlock the character" but they actually unlock the character at an absurdly high level out of gate. You can get the level 1 version for free and it takes minimal effort to promote it to 5 or 6 stars.)

All the main farming challenges can be skipped to their daily limit of 3 per day as long as you completed the level you're trying to skip at least once manually (you cannot do more than 3 per day even manually so it's basically infinity skip).

Anything you cannot straight up skip (just raids and adventure mode maps) you can auto once you've achieved an SS rank in it (SS Rank requires no deaths and complete in less than 90 seconds). The auto feature will not only complete the mission for you, but it will collect rewards and start it again automatically until you run out of daily limit. (raids are 1 a day, any adventure map worth farming are 3/day and I usually don't bother).

The only individual EQ is a single item which you can just straight up craft for free in the store. Otherwise all characters can use all items. You can even equip a Physical attack item on a magical character but it won't do any good. some weapons and accessories have special benefits when equipped on specific characters but the benefits are typically small. There's also talismans and ancient runes that are individual to the character but they are generally for really high level optimization stuff and you can't even get talismans until you reach the Dungeon Naga raid boss who doesn't drop any most of the time.

Now, with regards to maxing a unit, which is something I am not even remotely close to doing--I've found it to be effectively not necessary. I've paid literally nothing, did the bare minimum 3 pvp matches per day and I'm already ranked in masters division. I basically lose most of my matches but merely being in masters division gets you pretty damn good rewards even if you constantly lose. I've broken into the top 100 for the infinite fortress. I'm struggling with high level raid content but so are most people. So you don't actually need to max out your characters to get some of the best rewards in the game.

Sometime this month they're also patching in some better rewards for lower level raid content including more talisman drops from raid bosses.
