Apologize if this is already common knowledge & will delete if necessary, but I thought I'd put it out here.
With the multitude of Terra friends out there, now is a good time to brute force Asura 2* with her evoke damage. Doesn't even need her LB, just chain her CW evoke damage (doesn't matter if it's just lv1) with another CW chainer (mine is GLSakura, but anyone else is fine).
The rest of the team technically doesn't matter, but you need to survive Asura's "Infinite Cosmos" on T2 (since she locks HP at 20%), so you will need a breaker on T1 (80%+ ideally). Especially since many of the Terras out there right now are built for nuking and not survival, I would also suggest double cast her CW + the 75% self mitigation on her T1. You can put gut on your other chainer/units to survive it, but not necessary since using Terra's evoke chain by itself T2 is enough to kill the boss.
So yeah, turn rotation is basically--
T1: shift & dual cast evoke chain+self 75% mitigation (chain with a CW chainer preferably, especially if the Terra friend isn't super strong)
T2: tricast her chain & Asura dies
This probably would apply to many other trials with mitigation shield (especially if using her LB), but since it's half energy on world revisit quests, I just thought to write it out here for Asura.
Edit: Some people have mentioned that other units can do this too, and I'd most likely agree (didn't test it myself but I think it should be right); I'm just mentioning Terra here because you are likely seeing many Terra friends, and she can most likely carry the trial in 2T (assuming you have a breaker). Again, this is not meant to be a "guide", just a quick tip to get your easy lapis (or esper, if you skipped it). Sorry if I wasn't clear.
Edit2: Apparently I'm dumb, you don't need to clear Asura 2* like the other world revisit quests, only the Asura palace. Thanks to u/dukasmc for the info. https://exvius.gamepedia.com/World_Revisit_Quests#Part_11
The fight will get released on 28 December, which is on Stan "the Man" Lee's birthday
How did we not realize that?
Okay... accidentally got the title wrong the first time. Fixed it this time I swear

I'm not in either of these groups' discords nor am I following the drama closely, but it seems like Sawateam is being the immature one here under the guise of "oh it's just for fun" like it justifies anything...? Seriously, I don't see the need to make passive aggressive comments in public to humiliate a scanlation team without providing any proof that "Asura deserves it" as their defense. And if they did provide more proof, more readers would be dissatisfied they are bringing drama to the limelight at all. So why even bother in the first place if not just to act out like assholes throwing a hissy fit?
It seems like the fact that Asura accepts donations is what pisses off supporters of Sawateam the most. How far does this superiority run in this community?? I didn't realize it was such a big deal, but people act like it's the end of the world...?
(Sincerely, an outsider who wishes to stay an outsider because what in the fresh fuck is happening-)
Edit: Thanks everyone for the explanations. I realize now that my post really wasn't anything groundbreaking as everyone already expected this type of behavior from Asura LOL and it's just another day being involved scanlation drama for most of you people. Judging from the comments of Asura's scanlation, it seems I have unwittingly become another one of those sheep who fell for Asura's victim plays...
It's just extremely hard when most readers don't want to bother looking into it (like me). On a surface level, it really does look like Sawateam was in the wrong, but I guess it is our faults (the readers) when we don't do more research. I feel more up-to-date now and will keep a better eye out for any drama involving Asura.
As you know, the main policy and decency most scanlators should have is to treat scanlation as a non-profit hobby and hobby only. And here comes Asura. The big bad wolf with releases at lightning speed
and rather questionable QC.
Also in question are their shitty snipes,
which they deny but is up for debate.
But trying to make money off of scans ?
Pretty shit move
Yes, I'm well aware that some groups pay KTLs, run websites etc etc.
However Decent translation teams eg. Zeroscans end up suffering from backlash as soon as they drop popular series as soon as they get licensed. In comes the readers hero Asura Scans!
They put out fast releases, AND they do it for free! (with the exception of adding a Patreon ofc)
So why is this bad ?
A: Because most readers are idiots who fail to see the bigger picture (Jk, jk readers are clearly God and oh so wiser then , scanlators when it comes to manga/manhwa/manhua)
Robbing Artists of their cash is indeed very shitty, artists are being deprived of their livelihoods as you sit back and feel entitled to another chapter.
And this is a post made by a scanlator who is actually in no way affiliated to Asura in any way, believe it or not.
Oh, And look
Another instance of Asura being a greedy pig and trying to make money off of series.
(Sure it's not licensed, but you're still trying to make money off a hobby ? Pretty scummy)
Oh, and if you're bringing up the Aggregators vs Scan Teams Debate again, do note that Scanlation groups are in no way ever supposed to resemble aggregators. Considering Asura called non-profit scans viewpoints a " superiority complex " that should be redirected towards aggregators, yes of course aggregators are shit, sites like Mangago and Manganelo etc. are all shit. Isn't that common knowledge ?
Then again this is r/scanlatordrama not r/aggregatordrama
Just so you all know, before you go through all the time of going through all the bosses of Asura Island in one fell swoop and waste time, you only get credit for the first stage you do when you leave to the outer world.
tldr; After each boss fight of Asura Island, leave to the outside world and it will give you the World Revisit lapis. Happy Farming!
Producer Masa Yokoyoma posted a now deleted tweet, teasing the next entry in the Yakuza series.
Make sure you exit after each realm. Was finishing off my revisit quests and I tried to run all of them consecutively and only got credit for the last one where I exited to the world map. Significant waste of time due to the higher chance of random battles.
FYI - I used an all FFVI NV/NVA team and they smoked all enemies easily. Power creep is real.
I've already got 2 completed a while ago, but I decided to maybe re-continue this old work
Currently, The first of my Projects is known as the way of the tiger vessel, Based on the niko style as a whole, rather than just ohma's niko style.
Way of the Tiger Vessel (5e Subclass) - D&D Wiki (dandwiki.com)
Additionally, i have one based off of Imai Cosmo, Turning the monk into a submission specialist with predictive powers
Way of the Strangler King (5e Subclass) - D&D Wiki (dandwiki.com)
And the third and final one ive made is one based off the kure clan, with some creative liberties taken for some of the techniques.
Way of the Kure (5e Subclass) - D&D Wiki (dandwiki.com)
I currently am working on one for Kanoh Agito known as the way of the fang, as well
The way it was described in Asura is like being Agito's high-functioning berserk form. And it itself was a less predictable(with more options, and more adaptability) martial arts style, at least that's how I understood it. But seeing it now, it really does live up to the name "Formless".
Was Agito's Formless incomplete in KA, and this is how the real thing looks like, or what?
Hello everyone! I'm returning to FF11 after a long hiatus (I played waaaaay back in the day, from NA launch through CoP) and I'm looking for a beginner friendly guild. I reactivated my account back in July? I think but due to life and stuff didn't get to play until now. I'm on Asura and having a blast but I'm also completely lost. Even with the new player guide, FF11 is not a beginner friendly game (it's kinda like playing Morrowind, but that's not really a bad thing).
Anyone willing to let a complete scrub join their LS?
(This falls under many tags but I will use the history one.)
The most obvious explanation to me it seems that Iranians and Indo-Aryans were huge enemies. But if someone with more knowledge can expand on this I will be grateful.
It's been a long time since I've thought about Soul Eater, but I've been thinking about it a lot recently and I wanted to talk about it. I've been thinking maybe a bit too much, which is relevant.
Asura resonated (sorry) with me years ago when I first got into the series, and he does even more now, for what he says about fear and its effects, and how the wrong response to individuals suffering from that fear can cause a spiral into even worse depths.
Lord Death created the first Kishin, Asura. Literally and figuratively. There's no two ways about it. Excalibur tells him as much in his final moments, telling him how wrong it was to create a being out of his own fears. Lord Death acknowledges that Asura, his own son, was created as an experiment, a means to the end of becoming a perfect god of Absolute Order. The quote from Voltaire's short story 'Memnon' comes to mind here: 'One day, Memnon conceived the insane idea of becoming perfectly wise.'
This foolish, if well-intentioned, effort was successful in Lord Death's case, but the consequences for those around him were horrendous. Early in the manga, Lord Death is unable to admit it out loud. Even the way he recounts Asura's fall into madness and betrayal, and how he dealt with that consequence, speaks to Lord Death's detachment, his lack of compassion and understanding at that time. He removes his relation to Asura entirely, removing the truth of the matter and placing himself on the moral high ground in the process.
When he is recounting Asura's downfall, Lord Death remarks that he did not know what lay in Asura's heart, pondering if it was fear. He does not seem to realise or take responsibility for the fact that Asura is literally his anxiety incarnate. He understood on some level that no being, god or otherwise, could stand such a condition, and was careful not to make the same mistake with Kid, but Lord Death (at that point) was unable to admit or think of Asura as anything other than a traitor and a threat.
Lord Death taught Kid that the real purpose of a Reaper was balance - forgetting to mention how he came by that particular tidbit of wisdom - his eldest son, the most unbalanced creature to ever breathe.
I remember being in the car on my way to school with my dad. At the time I was suffering from an intense anxious phase where I was deathly afraid of bad weather - even something as harmless as dark clouds. I would cry when I opened my curtains and looked out. I didn't want to leave t... keep reading on reddit ➡
