Temple of the Ancients event with Aerith, Red XIII review, Immortal Flame Katy Review, Henne Mines
Immortal Flame Katy brings the end of an Era: finally the Katy Perry event has an end in sight! Better yet, Immortal Flame Katy has great chaining potential! Finally a half decent free unit. Aerith and Red XIII join us as well! The newest addition of everyone’s favourite FF7. Red XIII races to the top 5 DPS currently available, and a focuses on a newer chaining family: Stardust Ray. Aerith brings literally everything a healer could want. She takes Lotus Mage Fina and Ayaka and puts them together, adds some chemical X, and creates the perfect little healer! Easily the current best healer in the game. We also touch on a few limited time events, some new items, and some old reruns that might be worth looking into. We hope you enjoy this podcast!

Summer Lid/Fina & Folka/Citra are here! Who has more plot? New trials, and some amazing QoL!
This week we’ve got some hot new quality of life updates, including expanded friend roster allowing you to share up to five different units, STMRs triggering unit passives, buff timer duration bubbles, and more. As far as trials go, The Scorn of the Octopus and the Teacher is live and damn, that rod is looking juicy. It is loaded with stats and is definitely a nice pickup for any players that can clear the mission. We’re also in the closing week of the Figaro Castle event, this time it’s an exploration mission giving you a chance to pick up the nice Soul Sabre. The highlight of this week: summer is around the corner. And what better way to bring in summer than the vast amounts of backstory and plot FFBE is known for. Summer Fina & Lid and Summer Folka & Citra are coming in with spicy CG Limit Burst animations, interesting and useful kits, and a standard 15k step-up. We talk about everything we like about these two new units. Who’s better in the meta? Who has the better CG movie? Find out here!

King Edgar and Monk Sabin Opinions, New King Mog Event Points, Magitek Ruins Trial, and Many Ability Enhancements including Sephiroth
This week, we talk a little about the Magitek Ruins – Central Area and the nice little Malboro Doll you can pick up. Along with that, some much awaited ability enhancements coming, Sephiroth’s being one of the most anticipated. Are his buffs good? Or are they too little too late with the giants Esther and Zeno already around and UoCable? This week we’re also getting a King Mog event, Figaro Castle, with a bit of a change. You can now accumulate event points and receive rewards as a result. Figaro Castle also comes with a couple new 5* units: King Edgar of Figaro and Monk Sabin of Kolts. We dive in and give our thoughts on these two units, they’re bringing some interesting new stuff with them!  Email: ffbepodcast@gmail.com Wilmgaard: Twitter – twitter.com/Wilmgaard Instagram – www.instagram.com/asmirbasic/  Miniado: Twitter – twitter.com/admir_basic Instagram – www.instagram.com/gourmetking69/

Nagi and Yego Review, New Raid, New items, but not story? Where is the meta going from here?
On this week's episode it's the week of many orbs! Between farming, farming, and more farming, hopefully you have time to play FFBE. What's up with the recent raids being devoid of all story content? Are lines of text explaining the reason we are fighting too difficult to add in? That being said, we discuss the new FFBE Raid featuring our first full banner of Orders: Galas, Zolulu & Delulu, Yego, and Nagi. How do they stack up to the current meta of Zeno, Akstar, and Esther? The 12K Step-up banners are more new-player friendly by giving free Equipment, and Mini finally steps up and gives us some real content at the end of the episode! Hope you enjoy!

Akstar is Finally Here! Zeno of the Beta Star ... a new Global exclusive!? Plus a new story event ft. Akstar.
We start this week’s show talking about the Dwarven Castle battle where you fight Golbez and his Shadow Dragon. This is a re-run of an old fight, so it’s not too tough. Shadow Dragon will deal lethal fixed damage to one unit every turn, so keep an eye out for that. The rewards aren’t anything special, but some players might still find Shadow Dragon scale’s +30 MAG to be useful. Moving onto Akstar’s (Tomoe’s really) story event: Out for Vengeance. First, make sure to do the Akstar unit intro quest for the free goodies and to have a look at Akstar’s CG movie, it’s pretty cool! Following a brief discussion about the story and the items you can get from completing it, we discuss the units on the banner: Majora, Gravey, Tomoe, Akstar, and Zeno of the Beta Star. Gravey has an amazing TMR, Akstar comes out unchanged from his JP counterpart, and Zeno, the new global exclusive unit surprises everyone by being a true dial wield monster. Tune in to hear us discuss the similarities and differences between Akstar and Zeno of the Beta Star!   Email: ffbepodcast@gmail.com Wilmgaard: Twitter – twitter.com/Wilmgaard Instagram – www.instagram.com/asmirbasic/ Miniado: Twitter – twitter.com/admir_basic Instagram – www.instagram.com/gourmetking69/

Black Mage Golbez is actually decent! Plus, Xenogears Trial Boss is surprisingly easy
Crimson Gear coming at us this week. It’s not too difficult, just remember to dodge. Sadly the War Blade is nothing special, but still a decent pickup for newer players. The main event this week is a rerun of a restocked Tower of Zot, featuring Black Mage Golbez and his archfiends. The other FFIV units also get some bonus for this round of the King Mog event. Remember to pick up those Unit of Choice and the Guaranteed 5* summon tickets. And stick around to hear us discuss the ups and downs of Black Mage Golbez and his wi-fi disrupting powers.   Email: ffbepodcast@gmail.com Wilmgaard: Twitter – twitter.com/Wilmgaard Instagram – www.instagram.com/asmirbasic/ Miniado: Twitter – twitter.com/admir_basic Instagram – www.instagram.com/gourmetking69/

Esther and Sylvie changes?! Unit review and our Hot Take, ability awakenings review, and events!
The spring summon festival, aka summoning heaven, continues. We’ve also got some ability awakenings for Shylt, Ozetta, Kilian, and Emilia. The four stars are getting some nice buffs this round. Not to be outdone, Lulu, Yuna, Prompto, and Aranea get some nice ability enhancements of their own. The main event this week: A literal Eggstinction eggstravagaza featuring the Eggsterminator in a series of wave battles. We’re getting some nice new earth resistance gear in the form of the Tectonic set (Tectonic Crown, Tectonic Bracer, and Tectonic Vest). This boss is a little tougher than we’re used to when it comes to events, so be prepared. And finally, we give our thoughts on the last-minute changes to the new units Esther the bunny girl and Sylvie the paladin, along with our usual unit review. These ladies are eggselent.

Crimson Banner! Is he worth it though? Akstar delayed, new story event, tons of free spring event stuff! How we feel about FFBE GL and its "power creep" pacing
Spring is upon us, we got the Vault of Hidden Treasures coming in, along with some free summons, spring summon tickets and a new, highly difficult trial: Scorn of the Beasts of the Dark. You know it’s going to be hard because of the double “of the” in the title. Marching right along, march on Tiamat is here. You can get some decent stuff for beating it, but don’t be too rough, Tiamat is sensitive.  If Marching isn’t your thing, we’ve also got a wilderness survival guide coming in this week. It’s called “The Day the Spark was Lit”. As I’m sure you know, one of the most important things for survival is fire. We’re excited to learn how to light sparks of our own. The first instructor is Mirfas, the baker’s daughter. Once you’ve got a fire, you need something to use it on. That’s where Mirfas comes in with some fresh bread. A warning: if you’re going to use it as an accessory instead of a food item, avoid large bodies of water. Next up, we talk a little about Kyanos, the seasoned warrior. If you just can’t seem to get the spark right and all your bread comes out bad, you’re gonna be pissed. You might even say you hate this wilderness survival stuff. But that’s where the next lesson comes in, Kyanos will teach you how overcoming your hatred makes your limit bursts stronger. You don’t think it would work like that, but it does. And if all else fails, there’s Crimson. He’s got a massive, flaming sword. Really. It’s massive. It can also freeze things. Check it out.

Final Fantasy Tactics Event Ft. High Seraph Ultima and Beowulf, New Dark Esper Trials: Shiva & Golem, and Desert Despair - the Xenogears Trials
Last week was the week of trials. Both Wilm and Mini cleared the chamber of arms and talk a little about some of the battles, rewards, and experiences. Speaking of battles, Dark Golem and Dark Shiva are here and they are HARD. But they do come with some nice rewards if you can clear them (looking at you Shiva’s Tiara). If that’s a little too tough for you right now, we also got “Desert Despair”, the difficult battle for the Xenogears colab where you get to fight Weltall-ID. And by fight I mean you get to flick it with your finger and knock it out, this one is easy. Now that we’ve over come the trials, we can talk about the new Final Fantasy Tactics event Nelveska Temple. King Mog is sending us back to Ivalice to farm some Blue Orbs in exchange for some goodies. But I think most people are excited because we’re getting four new Final Fantasy Tactics units: Construct 8 - the adorable killing machine, Reis, the adorable and sparkly Holy Dragon, Beowulf, the Dragon fu—.. ahem, Dragon lover… AND finally High Seraph Ultima – the MP devouring, enemy murdering, head-wing having killing machine (imagine how scary she’d be if she wasn’t high).

Last week was a “dead week” with no new events, but we did have half-price chamber of the indignant runs. Mini opted just to farm crysts, but Wilm went all in on the trials. We briefly talk about all the little updates like the free 10+1 summons, the arena summon update, and the addition of limited unit prisms (A2, 2B and more) to the coin shop. Beatrix and Eiko got some nice ability awakenings this week which fix a lot of the problems that previously held them back. And finally, we talk about the new King Mog event: Cave of Shadows along with new units Dark Knight Luneth and Onion Knight Refia. There may be a recycled meme here and there.

Join us for our second ever live recording of the podcast where we discuss the story so far, the up and coming Hard Engels, the return of Akademia. For a lot of us, the return of the Type-0 farming event means more time to progress the story and clean up old trials, maybe even take a swing at the newest Leviathan trial. For some, it’s a great chance to pick up some rewards from King Mog. We also dive into the ability enhancements of Gladio (is he actually good now?) and the gang (is Cor worth the crysts and gil?) Did you guys enhance any of your units?    Email: ffbepodcast@gmail.com Wilmgaard: Twitter – twitter.com/Wilmgaard Instagram – www.instagram.com/asmirbasic/ Miniado: Twitter – twitter.com/admir_basic Instagram – www.instagram.com/gourmetking69/

Episode 19: Nier Banner (7 stars), Revenge of the Revenge of Hasiko, Mini's Meme, and more!
Awakened Hasiko came for revenge and got spanked again. This time with less MP drain. We talk a little about the mechanics of the fight, but it wasn’t tough to clear. You get a nice Photo Locket out of it, just make sure to replace the cursed photo with something else before you put it on. Speaking of curses, the Nier raid is back along with all our favs: Mechanical Heart, Pod, A2, and 2B. We talk a little about the two stars, A2 and 2B and what we think of them. 2B at 7 star seems pretty busted, but what about our girl A2?   Email: ffbepodcast@gmail.com Wilmgaard: Twitter – twitter.com/Wilmgaard Instagram – www.instagram.com/asmirbasic/ Miniado: Twitter – twitter.com/admir_basic Instagram – www.instagram.com/gourmetking69/

Episode 18: New 7 Star Batch, Revenge of Hasiko, plus a special announcement!
Hasiko is back for revenge… again in the Revelations of Darkness event. Should the event really be called the revenge of the revenge of Hasiko? It comes with a couple new units: Beryl the magical Tonberry and Elesperis the post gender change surgery Dark Knight Cecil along with some mew equipment and materia we can craft. The other big update this week: the fourth batch of seven-star units is here! Including everyone’s favourite general Loren , everyone’s favourite little sister BS Sakura, and the global exclusive icy duelist Fryevia. We talk a little about every new seven-star unit and why we like or dislike their updates. Plus a special announcement at the end!   Email: ffbepodcast@gmail.com Wilmgaard: Twitter – twitter.com/Wilmgaard Instagram – www.instagram.com/asmirbasic/ Miniado: Twitter – twitter.com/admir_basic Instagram – www.instagram.com/gourmetking69/

Episode 17: Belgium, idle animations, Elephim banner, ramen, and much more!
On this episode Mini pulls some rainbows and they’re all Kurasame. We talk about the Cater idle animation, the Lezard mission, all the new free goodies (don’t forget to keep logging in for your free UoC ticket!), a clever way to raise your esper summons during the Type-0 missions and the fight against Gilgamesh, and of course the new banner. Wilm and I get into it a little over Elephim’s TMR, but we both love Magna’s. Then there’s the new chef unit! Everything about his design is beautiful, the giant cleaver, the passives, the actives, all of it. Too bad he’s a three-star base. Get in touch with us, we’d love to hear from you!   Email: ffbepodcast@gmail.com Wilmgaard: Twitter – twitter.com/Wilmgaard Instagram – www.instagram.com/asmirbasic/ Miniado: Twitter – twitter.com/admir_basic Instagram – www.instagram.com/gourmetking69/

Episode 16: FF Type-0 Banner, Halloween trials, and Angel Slayer (VP)
Halloween is on its way out. We saw some great costumes, we ate some delicious treats, and we’re sad to see it go. We talk about the Halloween event and how it seems like there were less bonus bats. The returning Halloween event slapped both of us because we underestimated it. Made the revenge double sweet. The Count for this year’s Halloween was super annoying. Turn 1 MP drain is real suffering. We talk a little about the new Type-0 banner and our thoughts on the Angel Slayer. Get in touch with us, we’d love to hear from you!   Email: ffbepodcast@gmail.com Wilmgaard: Twitter – twitter.com/Wilmgaard Instagram – www.instagram.com/asmirbasic/ Miniado: Twitter – twitter.com/admir_basic Instagram – www.instagram.com/gourmetking69/

Episode 15: Valkyrie Profile Banner, Halloween Revenge, First Live Show
Our first live podcast, we dressed up for this one. We talk about getting our revenge on last year’s Halloween bosses, Twilight, ability awakenings, new espers, and of course, the highly controversial new Valkyrie Profile banner. Lenneth joins the battle with the support of two other important units: her floating shoulder pads.

Episode 14: Spooky Summons, Skele-discrimination, and more scares
On today’s episode we talk about the upcoming Halloween event. Wilmgaard confirms that he used to eat a lot of mini broccoli and that’s why the mini malboros are afraid of him. And on the topic of annoying enemies, everyone prepare for the spookfest in arena. I don’t know about you guys, but I’m ready to be countered to death by Lilith. And I’m ready to enjoy it! PSA: Everyone petition Gumi to stop skele discrimination. Get in touch with us, we’d love to hear from you!

Episode 13: Seven star Batch 2, CG Citra released, and more fun!
On today's episode we determine Lotti's family tree. We like her robe. Her grandpa Mecmedi has some decent stuff too. When we finally get to Citra, we agree that they put a lot of effort into fleshing out her plotline. A lot of plot in this unit. The third batch of global seven star units is out and we give them all their report cards (Rem, the Baath, and BBQ all got top grades). And to top it all off, Mini insults the French. Get in touch with us, we’d love to hear from you!   Email: ffbepodcast@gmail.com Wilmgaard: Twitter – twitter.com/Wilmgaard Instagram – www.instagram.com/asmirbasic/ Miniado: Twitter – twitter.com/admir_basic Instagram – www.instagram.com/gourmetking69/

On today’s episode, we’ve got spooky dolls, spooky spears, and maintenance finished early. How can you top a setup like that? I’ll tell you how. We have a professional chef in the house tonight. Join us as we go through the menu and taste each fantastic dish. Not only will we taste it, we will describe to you exactly what you experience as each impeccably cooked meal touches your mouth. You won’t believe what the risotto can do!

Episode 11: New Awakenings, New Player-made units, and more!
Description: This week we got a new batch of ability enhancements, Fenrir’s 3 star version, and a new raid event with cool new units. Doo-Duke is still pretty doo-doo (sorry), Loren and Roy are A+. Mystea also gets top marks. The new units are both awesome. Malphasie will chain with both common physical and magic users. Circe will be a great magic dps unit who can both chain and chain-finish. We love all three player drawn units, they’re beautiful and we’re just suckers for spooky things. Oh, and get that Raven Idol y’all. Get in touch with us, we’d love to hear from you!    Email: ffbepodcast@gmail.com Wilmgaard: Twitter – twitter.com/Wilmgaard Instagram – www.instagram.com/asmirbasic/ Miniado: Twitter – twitter.com/admir_basic Instagram – www.instagram.com/gourmetking69/

Episode 10: New 7 Star Batch, Summer Units and Sun Safety
On this episode, Mini puts on his lifeguard vest and tries to save the sunscreen nation. We're getting a summertime event and banner. Hello/Goodbye Lasswell comes with a nice umbrella, great for those days where the sun is just a little too intense. If you need to venture out from under the umbrella, your boy Nichol has you covered in your choice of either sunblock or sunscreen. Skaha has the best sprite. We also cover the new batch of seven star units, including, Onion Knight, Tidus, and Trance Terra (who is a monster).   Email: ffbepodcast@gmail.com Wilmgaard: Twitter – twitter.com/Wilmgaard Instagram – www.instagram.com/asmirbasic/ Miniado: Twitter – twitter.com/admir_basic Instagram – www.instagram.com/gourmetking69/

Episode 9: Hyoh is Hyoh, Goku, iOS Struggles, and more fun!
On today's episode, iOS has some issues and Mini profits by skyrocketing to the top of the Arena leader boards. Eat my dust iOS scrubs. Wilmgaard tells a heartwarming story about getting a lucky Dragonlord pull. We announce we're starting a girl band (We're not in it, we're just starting it). And of course, the banner the Global community has been anticipating is finally Hyoh. Domino is fun, especially if you can get multiples and have them knock each other over. Shatal is okay, but his shield makes him kind of klunky, so he's only really good at smack talking. Goku is the best magic tank in the game. And of course, Hyoh is really really good. Good luck on your pulls everyone!   Email: ffbepodcast@gmail.com Wilmgaard: Twitter – twitter.com/Wilmgaard Instagram – www.instagram.com/asmirbasic/ Miniado: Twitter – twitter.com/admir_basic Instagram – www.instagram.com/gourmetking69/

Episode 8: Dragon Lord 7*, DQ returns, farm animal, and more
On today's episode we talk about Dragon Quest until the cows come home. Machines in Dragon Quest are excluded from this and not talked about. Dragonlord will be getting a seven star awakening. That's more dragon and more lord than we got before all in the same compact package, pretty sweet deal. Estark has a good trust master. Marquis de Leon is extremely confusing, but he's a free seven star so that's amazing. Uberkilling Machine isn't talked about, seriously. Slime Knight has potential as a mascot and Dracky might be good at defending! Kirin's Osode is great for taming pets and seducing multi-armed, scantily-clad ladies. By the way, has anyone seen our cows?    Email: ffbepodcast@gmail.com Wilmgaard: Twitter – twitter.com/Wilmgaard Instagram – www.instagram.com/asmirbasic/ Miniado: Twitter – twitter.com/admir_basic Instagram – www.instagram.com/gourmetking69/

Episode 7: FFXI Banner, Event, King Mog, and more!
On this episode, we find out Mini thinks 40 minutes is “quick.” We try to make up for the missed podcast last week and cover the Final Fantasy XI banner and King Mog event. Mini reveals his Kupipi farming side business and Wilm laments getting Russels on his free 10+1 summon. Ulfhedinn Axe is decent for its cost of 15 000 currency. Mini and Wilm agree that this banner has no “TMR container.” All the units are decent, including Kupipi. We think Shadow Lord is slightly better than Livid Shantotto, though we're both Shantotto fanboys.    Email: ffbepodcast@gmail.com Wilmgaard: Twitter – twitter.com/Wilmgaard Instagram – www.instagram.com/asmirbasic/ Miniado: Twitter – twitter.com/admir_basic Instagram – www.instagram.com/gourmetking69/

Episode 6: Doo Doo, New Trials, DeusEx Collab, and more!
On this episode, Mini debuts his new chart topping single “Doo Doo”. Yes, it's just as bad as the title implies. We reminisce about the good old days and share our horror stories of the early Arena meta where Cloud of Darkness slowly turned your whole team to stone while you watched. Oh, and we talk about the two trials added this week. Jensen looks like a decent gun user. Both Mini and Wilm love Marchenko the damage-dealing tank. There's a sensitive nipple story in there somewhere.   Email: ffbepodcast@gmail.com Wilmgaard: Twitter – twitter.com/Wilmgaard Instagram – www.instagram.com/asmirbasic/ Miniado: Twitter – twitter.com/admir_basic Instagram – www.instagram.com/gourmetking69/

Episode 5: New 7 star batch, Item World Woes, 3 star Diablos and Tetra announced
On today's episode we discuss the new esper trials. Are they going to be tank and spanks or battles with a gimick? A banner of current 7* units has been announced. Wilm is excited about the banner this week and Mini can't believe it. Turns out Wilm just loves opportunities to save big! The next round of weapon enhancements is here! Mini's first attempt netted him a solid 9% ATK on Lion Heart. Try not to be jealous. We'd love to hear how your enhancements are going.   Email: ffbepodcast@gmail.com Wilmgaard: Twitter – twitter.com/Wilmgaard Instagram – www.instagram.com/asmirbasic/ Miniado: Twitter – twitter.com/admir_basic Instagram – www.instagram.com/gourmetking69/

The Japanese version of Christian Grey. And finally, a gym bro who only had enough time to put his coat halfway on. PSA: enhance your Lightning.   Email: ffbepodcast@gmail.com Wilmgaard: Twitter – twitter.com/Wilmgaard Instagram – www.instagram.com/asmirbasic/ Miniado: Twitter – twitter.com/admir_basic Instagram – www.instagram.com/gourmetking69/

Episode 3 - FFVIII Banner, 7 Stars, and Summoning Struggles
On today's episode we cover the new Final Fantasy 8 banner. We played smash or pass FF8 edition with Ramira: she'd smash all of them. We feel like the FF8 characters in FFBE stayed true to their original FF8 versions and we think Squall and Rinoa will be the strongest two attackers for now. Wilmgaard mentions some global version upgrades for the two new 7 stars. We love the Balamb Garden farming missions and can't wait to find out who the big boss will be for the challenging mission next week!    Email: ffbepodcast@gmail.com Wilmgaard: Twitter – twitter.com/Wilmgaard Instagram – www.instagram.com/asmirbasic/ Miniado: Twitter – twitter.com/admir_basic Instagram – www.instagram.com/gourmetking69/

Episode 2 - Star Ocean Banner, Weapon Enhancement Struggles
In today's episode, Wilmgard and Miniado discuss their experiences with weapon enhancements. Wilmgaard spent all his time trying to max out his Masamune. While Miniado spent his time upgrading all his Draco Rods, understanding that the mind is the strongest weapon. Then they discuss their feelings about the Star Ocean collab and a review of the banner units. The consensus: Reimi has the cutest sprite! Also, FFBE has a restricted, adult version? Nah, that would be weird.   Email: ffbepodcast@gmail.com Wilmgaard: Twitter – twitter.com/Wilmgaard Instagram – www.instagram.com/asmirbasic/ Miniado: Twitter – twitter.com/admir_basic Instagram – www.instagram.com/gourmetking69/

And of course we touch on the new banner including Awakened Rain and Melinda (Melidea? Melisda? Megasupermage.) Miniado says he's saving his load for Squall. What about Wilmgaard?
