Frustration Growing in Guardian Cross

When the rumors of Final Fantasy V cards being released started, I began saving up the Special Hunting Tickets i got on my iPod’s account.

With their recent release I decided to spend all 13 of my SHT’s in one sitting hoping for the best. I have been shut out over the last 4 months on my special hunts without landing a 5* or even an Ace 4*. With over 40 special hunts under my belt (some bought, some free) and have only 2 5*’s (Ifrit, Phoenix) to show for them.

Just as I finished my setup an was all ready to start hunting, my little girl started coughing and got sick on her bed. So the hunt got delayed as my wife and I changed her sheets and gave her a bath at 10:30pm. Once everything was settled and the rest of the family was sleeping I sat down and focused on the hunt.

As I hunted I recorded the spoils of each ticket. Ticket after ticket I hunted, growing just a little more frustrated with each. When the 13 tickets were gone I even bought 2 more trying to get me over the top. Once the dust settled I looked over the guardians I got more frustrated with the game then ever. The final count was 94 3*’s (about 7 Aces) and 12 4*’s (with an Ace Atar), and ZERO 5*’s!


That’s about all I can say, I was trying to be optimistic and hope just for one Deadmoon 5* in 15 special hunting tickets. I could not imagine how angry I would have been if I payed for all those tickets and came away with nothing!

I have now passes the 200 days playing mark with only 2 hunted 5*’s to show for it.

To say the least my motivation for this game is wavering. Square-Enix is just lucky I have some good friends in game that keep me coming back for more. Hopefully the ratios for hunting 5*’s go up because I cannot see myself dropping any more money into this game unless something changes.

The ball is in your court now Square…..

  1. I’ve only been playing about 28 days, and have one hunted 4* ace (Power). Glad to know I’m not the only one out there struggling to find 5* – I guess they aren’t as common as I wish they were. Still it makes me not want to go into the coliseum at all – except that I know if I at least rank C and get one SHT, I can try, try again in the hunt.

    If you don’t have a lot of money to spend you have to be patient with this game. What I ended up doing was hunt the Big Giant in the Volcanic zone to get Bahamut (now Gilgamseh) and some 4* to strengthen my team. I also saved up some SHT’s I got in the Coli and waited until a new zone unlocked and used them all at once trying to get the newest guardians. From what I have read the War Elephant is great *4 so I would do those 3 quests.

    Starting is hard but one you meet some friends and make some good trades the game gets better. What is your IGN, I will send another Ace 4* your way to help your efforts.
