    A few more things:
    1) It should also be Tenryu +1.
    2) Tier 3 rewards are better than Tier 2 rewards.

    Hmm... umbral marrow x5 (85m) or riftdross x60 (18m). When will the devs admit how horribly they screwed up the weapon hierarchy. They said empyreans were supposed to be the hardest to upgrade 95>99, but in "reality," they cost about a fifth of what a relic costs to upgrade to 99. Not even close guys! Golden Gobbiebag II should be changed to 1500 heavy metal plates (150m+).

    Tier one and two silly odds aside, kinda sad you can't be sure to win at least one lowest tier item like in the mog bonanza. :/ I guess everyone getting a cosmetic weapon is too game breaking.

    Why is Heroines’ Holdfast access being so limited? I know I'll never win a R/M/E or pulse armor and I couldn't care less about ark weapons or that godawful moogle suit, but I would very much like to be able to do the new fight.

    At least with the old Mog Bonanza one could guarantee themselves a Rank 5 prize by choosing their numbers properly while more than likely sacrificing a chance at higher tier prizes. Now, most of us will never see the inside of the new battlefield if this is the sole means of orb distribution. That's kinda screwed up IMO.

    Yes they did..


    Maybe not directly but it they played a role in indirectly influencing it. If you have a world full of greedy people. Then create a supply shortage for a high demand item by limiting the amount dropped while requiring an absurd amount of them the prices of said item will indirectly become more expensive.

    Supply = Demand

    The whimsical supply isn't capable of meeting the demand of every player doing the upgrade so people place high prices on upgrades. SE set the supply limits and players decided the value based on that supply.

    I reject your comment and substitute it with reality.

    Athena Orb does not have an "'s" in it. Mulcibar's Scoria is not spelled with an "e". Phorcys Dirs has an "s" at the end. Thaumas Coat does not have an "l" at the end.

    (I swear I am not trying to be a jerk, these came up when I was linking them to existing items.)

    Not their problem for the price, it's clear they are offering the item for the FINAL stage of the weapons. They can't just say, "Oh, here! 95>99 for Relic and 90>95 for emps" that's plain stupid.
