Lord Kyroo or Ryu Dragon?

#1RaltriosPosted 8/6/2012 7:25:35 PM
I got tired of killing my Kab Cannon and R&R Seal after 6 and 8 times respectively. I thought I had a way to save on materials and get both to star rank with only one more Brilliant Fantasy, but it seems I was mistaken. I really don't want to kill my KC over and over again for both, so which one should I get?
And/or which portals could I use to get their materials?

Personally after looking around I think in terms of getting stuff Lord Kyroo is better as there are cheaper ways to get megaflare and they both have combo master. Stat wise though Ryu dragon no contest.

Ryu Dragon gives better stuff (Meteor Crash, Superglide, etc.) and has the better stats, so I'd go with that.

I'm still tempted by that Ars Arcanum... and what other ways are there to get Megaflare?

But just in case, if I go for Ryu Dragon, I should use my Blizzara to boost it's Blizzard resistance, right? Or would water resist be better?

Yeah, I love that sketch.

Ryu Dragon's more likely to get hit with Ice attacks, so I'd go with Blizzard resistance.

get ryu dragon. it doesn't have any glaring weaknesses like kyroos (if they catch fire, they run around whilst ignited, doing nothing for like a minute...dragons don't have to put up with that)
also, iirc, ryu dragon is one of the few spirits with almost-complete superarmor, similar to large-size spirits, and doesn't stagger to most attacks, unlike lesser spirits
in terms of ability links, ryu dragon will consume a crapton of lp, but is well worth it because it has stellar stats (it simply outdoes lord kyroo in that aspect), a better moveset, flight capabilities, etc etc.
to make a max-rank ryu dragon, gather a buncha epic and brilliant fantasies
if you still insist on a lord kyroo, use brilliant and noble fantasies
epic and brilliant fantasies are found via special portals, other boards can tell you a lot more than i can on where/how to find them
noble fantasies are exclusive to moogle-sale-days, for about 2k each
if you're not seeing the star-rank showing up, gather/use more fantasies and/or go to a world when it's a "risky day" (+1 bonus to rank, i think)

Ah, okay. Then the deciding factor would be on how good Ars Arcanum is. Thoughts?

And any idea which portal has Brilliant Fantasies?

I'm on a Risky Winds right now, and I could either use my 6 Brilliants and 4 Pricklies to make Ryu, or 4 Nobles to make Kyroo (I've got 8 and 9 of the latter two, respectively).
