@Horse-Bootz said in GMs, is this legit or a hack?:
Oh wow this entire thread. Ok so a couple things. I don't even know HOW a Novel could drop in Ult Nab, since I can't find any record of any mob that could drop it being in there. But a couple things.
No a Novel weapon being available doesn't invalidate any of the EP5 content, I can only assume that whatever dropped it (probably dark emperappy) is dropping it at a dummy low drop chance, just like how there are 0 of Dio's 15*s on the drop table when those should be re-added into the drop pool too. Novel as of right now would just be a stat stick, not only do we only have the starter S4s, the only way you could get one to give to it is from making an Atlas weapon in the first place. Getting an Ophistia from PD is even better overall since you can at least kit out its S1-3. You still need to run EP5 content to build up the components for your Atlas Ex later, which once an Atlas Ex is out is better than a Novel weapon, and you will still need to run the final UQ of EP5 like 50 times to get your Lightstream stone to make your Lightstream weapon which again is also stronger than your Novel weapon.
Even if you did get your Novel stat stick, you will still need to wait until the second part of EP6 to even upgrade it into something good, since we didn't get Liberate keys until we got Etoile, and you will still need to farm up the platinum materials required, which as of right now is a massive hurdle since we're not in the era where 14*s are common yet, yet alone the massive amount of class EXcubes, which I feel like people do not have a good stockpile since we dont have content that drop class cubes yet and people are spending theirs on augment transfer passes.
Like ok sure, if you did get a Novel drop for a class you actually play right now today, you have a better weapon, not even current BiS since Ophistia is BiS atm for the next month? The moment you can get your Atlas Ex on NA, which SEGA is going out of its way to make sure that anyone playing right now will be able to get day 1 on NA it's already invalidated until we get the Liberate upgrade in the new year, and then it will just get quickly powercrept again by the plus potentials for the original 15*s that can be earned in Divide Quests. The purpose of base form Novel weapons was that they are purely filler gear that you were able to farm for, since weapons like Atlas Ex and Lightstream might as well be account limited due to the rarity of the stones needed to make them. Novel was never BiS in JP and its not even BiS here on NA right now.
I already have a 999 stack of the plam material, you're slacking. tons of people listing 14* for 5 mil or less, you just have to keep spam refreshing shop as soon as a UQ ends.
