Considering its potential impact on both Yuffie and another physical attacker, players may want to weigh the decision to pull based on their preferred playstyle and the current needs of their team. The versatility offered by Arctic Star (Yuffie) suggests that it could carve out a niche in future content where diversified offensive boosts become crucial.

In the dynamic landscape of gacha games, having a character or weapon that introduces novel mechanics can prove valuable in adapting to evolving challenges.

Notes:

Ultimatic, Glenn's latest addition, brings another physical non-elemental weapon to his arsenal. While not entirely unique in its category, it distinguishes itself with higher damage modifiers compared to his recent non-elemental weapon. This improvement in damage potential could make Ultimatic an appealing choice for players looking to enhance Glenn's offensive capabilities.

One notable feature is its added bonus of extra damage to circle sigils. This presents a positive aspect for players who strategize around sigils, providing an additional layer of damage output during battles.

However, Ultimatic may not be classified as a must-pull for all players. Its enhancements, while commendable, might not significantly push the envelope in terms of groundbreaking mechanics. Those who already possess a formidable set of weapons for Glenn may find Ultimatic as more of an incremental upgrade rather than a game-changing addition.

As with any gacha decision, players should consider their current roster, playstyle preferences, and the specific needs of their team. While Ultimatic may not revolutionize Glenn's gameplay, its increased damage potential and compatibility with circle sigils could make it a worthwhile investment for those seeking incremental improvements in their strategic arsenal.

Summary

The Arctic Star (Yuffie) and Ultimatic (Glenn) characters bring a new level of power and strategy to your Final Fantasy Ever Crisis team. Consider their unique abilities and how they synergize with your existing roster to maximize their potential on the battlefield. Good luck, and may your gacha pulls be filled with these formidable additions!
