Macro-ing is not an option for me, so all of my TM will go to my Zidane. At the end of this month I should have 8 total. I don't foresee myself earning much more TMRs than that.

No macroing here ever: 3x Dual Wield 3x Sakurafubuki 2x Black Cowl 3x Blade Mastery 1x Staff of Magi 1x Double Cast 1x Barrage 2x Rising Sun 1x Blizzaga(GG Dupes) 1x Firaga (GG Dupes..) 1x Pistol Doublehand Kaiser Fist 2x Excalibur 2x Celestial Glove In progress: Karl TM Brave Suit Ribbon C. Luna ring C. Luna ring After that: C. Luna Ring C. Luna Ring Marie Robe Prob some Spr gear Prob some Spr gear edit: And like 3 of each of the 3 FP unit killers, 2 Camo and a lot of 10% HP from riser.

That is it, earth shrine entrance - over and over and over again. I tend to do it while at the office - have my phone on an angled wireless charger and I can blindly tap and kick off quests, rinse and repeat, I also tend to squeeze some time in before I get up in the morning and while my wife and I are watching TV in the evening.

How are you getting on with your TM's @Sustainer ? I've updated the OP to show my current progress. Thinking of going for a third Dual Wield and third Excalibur next seeing as Orlandeau is coming. Manual TM farmers represent!

I'm struggling to rationalize a 3rd Excalibur, I can't work out many squads where I'll need more than 2. More DW is always nice tho

Well, I've been inspired by the insane chaining videos on reddit (current raid on ELT is pretty tricky without it). So I'm considering whacking on a Holy Lance or Excalibur on a finisher such as Firion for some sweet elemental synergy, but for now, chasing that third DW. It's just too versatile and I can live with two Excaliburs in the short term I guess!

Yeah, that still works out to 2x Excalibur - I can't see using more than one on Orlandeau (if I pull one) or Agrias, and 1 on said finisher. Unsure where a 3rd would come in - at least for me, was looking at farming 3-4 ages ago, but can't quite figure out where else I'd use them. Maybe so I don't have to gear swap.

For me, I'll admit to being ignorant on whether I'll be slapping more than one Light element weapon on the chainer and/or finisher. I've read conflicting schools of thought on whether to arrange both weapons as Light or to mix it up. Should both weapons be Light to make best use of the Light debuff, or is it better to have one as Light (off hand) and the main hand a Katana/Sword. For now, keeping it practical so that second BM is going to be very useful. I just wonder that as I'm going to be looking at the OTK scene, how to optimally aim TMR progression.

Only need one weapon to be light, you are gimping yourself if you use anything other than a different weapon type (generally Katana - non elemental, Sakurafubuki/Genji blade w/ Blade Mastery) offhand. There is also no mystery - all attacks do an average of all elemental bonuses and weaknesses to determine final damage. 1x Light weapon on a target with 50% light weakness - 50% bonus damage 1 light weapon, 1 water weapon, 50% light weakness, neutral water - 25% bonus damage. 1 light weapon, 1 dark weapon, 50% light weakness, 50% dark resistance - 0% bonus damage etc... All attacks also share the properties of all elements involved, so with the above: Light Light/Water Light/Dark
