Heyo. Getting a bit distracted with all the new stuff coming out and wanted to know - how important is proper 15* gear and 12/13* star units and such for story only content?
I am aware story difficulty in HC changes in response to your level, with certain quests posing quite a challenge if your chosen class is 75+.
How bad is it though? Would I need to minmax affix enhance augment insert-yet-another-mechanic-and-then-some all the way to be able to just clear story? Or would skillful play save the day?
And for additional/unreleased story content - can I reasonably just get the 'low-end' 15*/16* from exchange shops and such to handle story stuff? Based on released content on JP I mean, what do we know about that?
Final question: Can I get away with doing story content with say, Hero or Luster, and having a Dex mag instead of a recommended S-ATK mag? Just hoping to do all story content on one chara, and I get the feeling ima love Luster a lot more than Phantom.
