Axis Blade Banner Overview

Axis Blade:
Hands down the strongest physical BSB in the game. And it is even potentially stronger than Cid Raines' BSB.
If you have this BSB, you need to instantly Legend Dive Squall. It's a no-brainer.
2 Junctions alone can easily let the defend command reach damage cap, 3 Junctions is almost guarantee cap.
With the Dualcast LM, that is 120 or 140k damage per turn. Cid Raines may have Instant Magic for fast sustainable DPS, Squall has the strongest burst damage. Plus Metamorphose does not have NE.
35% Dualcast is really reliable. Any JP player can vouch for that. Super reliable.
Squall don't even need abilities with this. Just give him TGM RM, Entrust a bar to him on first turn, and wreck the game. Can even use Cloud USB RW to be even crazier.
The downside to this BSB is that native Ice boosting equipment is extremely rare.

Fairie Tail:
It is getting difficult to give an opinion on healing USBs.
Majority of them are near clones of each other, just 1-2 different utility.
Selphie provides Instant Guts and a High Regen to remove any Poison/Sap.
Since her BSB does not have a party heal, this USB is easily her best healing relic. For VIII realm as well.

Betelgeuse:
Arguably the best Support BSB in the game.
Reason lies in the commands. ATK/RES is relatively rare, and this is the second source of MAG/DEF debuff.
In the stacking game, this BSB can be paired with almost everything else. Even Vaan as you can ignore com2 and use Breakdown abilities.

Strange Vision:
I hope the misconception of this being a healing BSB is gone now.
It is a utility BSB with a Faithga, better Curaja and a slot saver for Dispel/Banishing Strike.
MAG/MND Faithga has strong competition now, but it is still great for CMs. Dispel utility will also be very helpful when it is needed too.
I would label this as situational.

Sorceress Gown:
Dud of this banner, especially when her BSB is Ice focused now.
Plus the Imperil is single-target. Not to mention it is the worst source for it.

Raijin's Pauldron:
One of the best sources of Last Stand. Lifesiphonable and a High Regen to remove any Poison/Sap.
Even if you don't need the Last Stand, party Instant Cast is a powerful utility.

Exeter:
Those with his BSB can stack it with this SSB to make Irvine into your strongest debuffer.
On its own, still great for CM or those without Support BSBs. Since Irvine has Support 5 to stack Full Break with it.

Crystal Glove:
Usable for CM if you lack damage. Pretty good damage too for a SSB.
I really don't think Zell BSB owners will need the boost from here though.

Beast Killer:
As long as Allegro Con Moto is still absent in Global, a Wrathable SSB that can double a mage team's DPS is great.
It comes with Hastega too, so you have more freedom to sought for other Faithga/utility.


Conclusion: This is easily the best banner since Alphinaud 1, the overall quality is just supreme.
Strongest BSB in the game, best Support BSB plus a Hyper Break, a really good Medica, another great source of Last Stand, a Faithga BSB and a Hastega.
Damage, support, heal, utility. Great diversity of excellent quality.

Twin Viper Banner Overview

Twin Viper:
Standard mage OSB.
Although, they make her upcoming BSB2 & CSB Ice focused. So......

Fomalhaut:
Laguna is not really helpful to a party since is ability set is Machinist-focused, but this BSB helps to give him a purpose.
Imperil Lightning which can be stacked now, and a defend command to instantly cast Tempest Snipes.
Great Lightning damage, if you are willing to hone Machinist abilities.

Almasy Shear Trigger:
Mostly a Sentinel relic and a source of serviceable Dark damage.
It may seem a bit gimmicky, but the utility from the opening and commands complement each other well.
It is also a great complement to his future USB, but both are in the same banner next event. So this may not be a banner decision to some.

Fujin's Shin-Chakram:
Don't think I need to explain much for this.
Great damage, very good debuff, strong character.
Excellent BSB that is still viable in current JP.

Rinoa's Guise:
Native Earth boost stat stick is so rare.
Oh its a SSB? Okay. Nice armor.

Sirius:
CM use since there are better Boostgas and triple stacking ones are on the horizon.

Fujin's Jacket:
Great damage with or without her BSB. Second cast is x34.24 multiplier with 0CT.
However, both of Fujin's relics will return in her Wind OSB banner in the next event.

Seifer's Gloves:
ATK/MAG buff for VIII realm so very good for CMs.
Triple-element is situationally good and the stat stick has Dark boost.

Vega:
Only other source of Imperil Ice is Fran USB, which is also far superior.
No reason to go for this unless Fran's banner don't agree with you.


Conclusion: Top goal is Fujin's BSB. The other relics are situationally serviceable and some are great stat sticks.

Probably doing 2x11 pulls on banner 1.. wanted a solid relic for Squall since I first started the game, but the banner quality for 8 never quite justified huge pulls..till this one.

I know the odds are low but fingers crossed! I need 8 synergy quite badly anyways so most of the stuff will be good for that even if I dont catch the main prize.

Edit: and thanks as usual SolitaireD for the topic :D

Skip. I wouldn't pull here unless I were guaranteed one of the BSBs or 6* relics given that I have too many of these SSBs already, I wouldn't want to do more than one 11x pull here at most if I did pull, and the three SSBs I don't have between both banners wouldn't interest me at all.
If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face--forever.
