I know how sgas work. I said this because it's my order of operations. Get content relevant gear>grind said gear to max>then worry about slapping augments and ssa's on them.
However I just checked out the shop. None of the capsules are tradable. So I guess I can't be lazy. Though I don't have the meseta to really buy into badges.
My best bet is probably to spend irl money on a ticket I care about before the shop goes away. Still. 40 badges for one single capsule seems steep as hell.
