View Full Version : Desta questions

Oct 24, 2007, 07:31 AM
I finally got my Desta board, what's the synth rate with a 100% range bot?
Will the synth rate go up when AOI comes out?

75% now - 80% AotI

thx, at only 5% I don't think i can wait.......

Wait until the end of 1UP. If we get all the prizes it should go up by 25%.

Oct 24, 2007, 08:05 AM
U sure? that would make synth rate 100%
I'd be up for some of that!
How do we get ALL prizes then?

I remember someone mentioning a possible success rate cap for some things (I've heard stuff like 90% for weapons). Obviously I can't verify if that's true or not, but it also wouldn't surprise me if that was implemented.

I think the Armor synthers are going to get the most out of the 1up rewards, and more power to them. I got out of the Armor-synthing market as soon as I saw my "success" rates on a pure-Armor PM. It's no fun.

There are conflicting opinions on that. Some posters say that its going to be capped at 90%, and others claim that they had a 98% for something during JP's Famitsu event. I think well just have to wait and find out. Either way, 90% is better than 75%.

November 16th is presumably the date they will implement the unlocks.
The unlocks is what could potentially give us +25% synthrates for two weeks.
The issue though is the JP players only managed to get +20% instead of +25% during the event. However, I'm not sure if their point requirements for their event were the same as ours given the population difference.

Theoretically it's possible to get +25% for two weeks after the event but realistically I believe we will only achieve +15% or maybe +20%.

This is where you can find out what we have been awarded:

At our current pace, we should get most of these rewards. We MIGHT not get the last one or maybe even two, but we should get most. Seems there's a lot more motivation for this event than there was for Firebreak.

I feel I should remind everyone that when synthing a melee weapon you get an extra 8% when using regular Photons instead of the elemental versions.

most people don't use neutral weapons, though I have seen people with neutral mugunruk's.

6 of 7 halarods @68%
4 of 4 Shigga Desta @75%
2 of 2 Ragnus @85% (both crap percentage 12 and 18)

I'm not worried about the weapon synthing. I'm only waiting for the armor. My Rabol Dunga, Stormline, Rabol Rappy, Rabol Gant, and Rabol Lebfa are all lined up. Before then end I should have Phantomline, Baji-senba, and Nafri-senba added to my list of "armor boards I have at least 6 of for mass synthing". If I'm lucky maybe a few Cati-senba and Orpa-senba.

Hopefully Rikau-senba and Hiragi-senba are box drops on Neudaiz B.
