You can still get the broom, the armor and the accessory of Ragna 1 as a reward from the plat chests of every ragna, so it's not like the item is exclusive to Ragna 1.
I guess that's part of the reason why the stats are good for those items, while it's crap for the new ones they have added which are exclusive to their respective events (well, not crap, but they are not an upgrade).
I'm waiting until we get 400+ slots or HoR. No way in hell I'll clog my inventory even more than what currently is. It's a shame since I could potentially get few desired childs to +6 like Epona, but the risk to get more copies of childs already at +6 is too much (already got 65 dupes). I may end up capping and then unbinding them, but just unbinding from +1 to normal it's 10k onyx. Onyx is a luxury currency that I don't want to waste for this.temptation 😣 14
I hope so, but in the Notice they mentioned only this:
(*Can only be obtained from Crystal Pickup Summon - Astraea, Agamemnon and more... (After 7/21 4:00 UTC+0 ~ Until 7/30 Update))
I personally never checked the wording of the other 4* like Bast, so not sure if that's the norm (and we'll get him in the premium pool) or not.
EDIT: Ok, I went to check Bast old announcement and it was clearly mentioned that she was going to be added to the summon pool... so, well, I'm afraid we can forget about this guy for now.
This is what they wrote in her case:
Crystal & Gold Summon Child added - Bast, Ankh, and Rune will be added to premium Summon pool
There are only so many that you can feasibly evolve to 5*, so I don't mind wasting some of them as 1 of the 4 evolution childs needed for the evolution itself.
Mind you, I do get the Devil Pass as well, so I'm swamped with those bad guys (so I don't feel the pain in wasting some of them).
It's an utter waste. Just don't use it. You are still going to get more ragna coins by hitting level 40 bosses and doing damage like wet noodles instead of oneshotting a level 10 boss on your own.
The only reason somebody would want to use it is exclusively if they have literally no time for Ragna and want to use the free 5 raid tickets daily (since you can quickly oneshot the level 1 to 5 bosses).
Somebody was doing that during Ragna Season 0, but in my eyes that's still a waste.
EDIT: Just to add that in Ragna Season 0 there was one of the Ranga mission that required you to use a ton of these raid tickets. If you didn't miss a single day (using the 5 tickets daily) you would still take 2 weeks to complete the very last mission.
Nowadays (actually since Ragna Season 2) that's no longer a problem as they have reduced a lot the number of tickets needed. Now we are done within 4 days.
This happens when there's no powercreeping. The good thing is that as a new player you can still easily catch up. The bad thing is that it gets stale.
If the meta was shifting over and over and you needed the new shiny child+6 every month or so to retain platinum, trust me, many people would complain about that too.
The issue is that you can still get the less desiderable 5* equipment, which would be a complete waste of a guaranteed A grade (since the stats are worse than a C grade of the best ones).. and yes, it already happened to me twice with the guaranteed tickets we got so far.Multitasking PVP & WB 17
That's indeed true, but you need to check the team power as well. To get 245 millions of damage with that team power they would need to attack at least 250 times (and that's by giving the benefit of the doubt they do 1 million per attack).
Anyway, there were players with 2 billions of damage with just 7 childs. We can only hope that Line will do a good job in clearing out these cheaters.
