With the MP Shop hopefully hitting NA within the next few weeks, I decided to finally take a look through my box and see what sacrifices could be offered to the altar of latent tamas. I was actually surprised that I had so little saved up as I’ve kept almost all my dupes over the past year (the exception being collab silvers used for skill ups), but after tallying the actual MP numbers I was fairly satisfied. I guess those RSonias can finally be put to use. The list of what I’m selling is after the break.
I’m somewhat apprehensive in selling any six-star GFEs since they’re so hard to obtain. The exception is DMeta since I have six of her. Luckily it looks like I’ll have enough MP so I won’t have to sell the others if I don’t want to.
MP Shop buy and sell prices were grabbed from PDX.
Final tally: 1,105,000 MP
Box space cleared: 194
Reserve tally: 272,000 MP
Max potential MP: 1,377,000 MP
What to Buy
The cap is 999,999 MP so I’ll almost certainly sell everything I listed in the definite section — except the DMetas — right when we get the MP Shop. So, what will I buy with my 950,000+ MP?
It’s difficult what to make of the latent tamas. It appears that all of them will be farmable to some extent as invades in certain dungeons. They’re also just not all that great so it doesn’t feel good making such a big investment in them.
The two that most players seem to be gravitating to are the time extends and dark resists. Those are the two I’m most likely to go for too, but I’m still not sure what I’m going to use on who. Time extends seem fairly low impact. It seems like the only dark damage I really want to resist is Divine Queen Hera’s preemptive, but for most of my teams I’m going to need a damage reduction active to survive that anyways so I’m not sure if that’s the best use. This is something I’m really going to have to think about in the coming weeks.
Pys are very pricey at 50,000 MP, but they could be worth it since py farming is one of the the worst things ever. I won’t buy Flampys, but I’ll definitely look into Woodpys and Badpys when they rotate into the shop. I’m hoping I’ll have the patience to farm them the normal way, though.
I’ve already made clear my distaste for the MP Shop dragons. That part of me is telling me to not buy them, but the part of me that wants everything doesn’t want to miss out. I’m assuming that the dragons are on rotation and will be available near indefinitely, but I’m also fearful that someday they won’t be sold anymore and I’ll miss out. I probably still won’t buy any of them, but that fear will nag at me. I’m hoping the dark dragon is cool.
There are also going to be monsters that are permanently available in the MP Shop. While I’m not necessarily going to buy the marionettes, things like that make me want to save my MP for the future as much as possible. Being able to prepare for the future based on JP was always a big advantage for us, but it could be particularly important here.
A big question is whether we’ll get the opportunity to buy Claire since we didn’t get the chance during the event. I’ll take the pessimistic stance and say no, but I don’t think it’s out of the question. The KR update will be a strong indicator either way.
