Definitely in. I will likely start with a 750 Berserker Risk and then see where the winds take me from there.

Registration is open! I registered a normal run with Fifth Job and Berserker Risk. I'm crossing my fingers that I get at least one mage for Omniscient (I know there's ways to beat him without mages, but having a mage makes it far easier).

HOORAY I DID GET A MAGE! My Wind Crystal Job is Blue Mage. Water is Berserker, as expected. Fire is Bard, which Iím just about to get. Iím currently on Crescent Island farming Death Sickles. The RNG is being stingy, unlike Yagamoth in The Run who got one on his first try. I was kind of hoping to get Beastmaster to make getting Blue Mage spells easier, but Bard is a good alternative!

What did everyone else get? I hope you are having fun with your runs!

I had horrible luck farming Death Sickles! It took me way longer than usual.

My team is Geomancer/Berserker/Bard/Chemist, and now that I've beaten Soul Cannon it's going to be easy mode. Yeah, the Ronka Ruins are still in front of me before I can actually use chemist, but this is a solid party composition, albeit a bit weird.

I'm doing a pure chaos natural run and I've only unlocked Samurai and Bard so far which isn't bad and it shouldn't be long until I get my third job.

Sounds like a good team! I actually like Geomancer quite a bit. And yeah, the combo of bard & chemist will make things easy!

That sounds good so far! Good luck with the remaining jobs!

I just unlocked Fifth Job, losing dancer and picking up chemist! So my team is Blue Mage, Berserker, Bard and Chemist. Should be able to get the triple crown with this team, yay! Now I'm off to farm Dragon fangs and turtle shells.

I've ended up with Samurai, Bard, Summoner and Chemist. I had a feeling I'd get Chemist, everyone seemed to be getting it!

I've been watching my streamer friend Loxxulus play FFV for the first time. He's in World 3 now, so that have me the kick in the butt I needed to finish up my Fiesta run, which I did yesterday.

Omega took a few tries, but I eventually won--and was surprised when I did because wasn't tracking damage and thought I was only halfway there. My Chemist and Bard sang Romeo's Ballad with haste shows on. My blue mage also had sing, but was wearing a flame ring which came in handy at times. She did Mighty Guard and White Wind but mostly sang. Www got lucky that the few attacks that Omega got in were recoverable from. I used the Rune Axe on my Berserker. tip: don't use the chicken knife, it dinks for 0 damage.

Shinryu was just a matter of getting a Bacchus Wine & Dark Sigh mixed quickly enough, which took about three tries. Once that was done, it was pretty easy. I used Dragon Breath for most of my damage (I had farmed 99 Dragon fangs in World 2).

I won against NED on the first try,taking a page from the speed runners and having my bard sing Hero's Rime. That and Aeroga from my blue mage and Dragon Breath from my Chemist did the trick. I tried to balance my attacks against all targets so to kill them in succession. Meteor only went off once, and killed my Berserker but everyone was alive at the end.

I feel I got incredibly lucky with this year's mix of jobs. In the past I've done multiple runs, but I have a large knitting project I need to get done soon (a shawl I want to wear to Distant Worlds) so it's just one run for me this year.
