  1. Can magna 2 weapons be flb’ed? I don’t think I heard this on the stream iirc. Also, do you have any intends to analyze how the updates affect the meta nowadays? Thank you so much.


    1. Imo with a lv 200 weapon and slv 20 skill, plus 120% + 120% from the FLB’ed Magna summons, the magna build will overshadow the primal build for now. Maybe, just maybe it won’t lose to a well decked, uber whale grid, but I think it will be far superior compared to a work in progress, partially built primal grid….


  2. Hello, I was wondering since I cannot find anywhere how to do it. The crystals that the new raids ask for it, the Fire Crystal for Shiva, The Earth Crystal for Alexie and so on with the others, where or how do you get them so you can start the raid?
    Thanks in advance.
