    So other than the method of getting it and editing it, the Black Combo Card is basically the same as an ordinary Combo Card, right?
    As in it's still gonna eventually expire and be useless outside of VIP service and rare revival coupons.

    Kinda reminds me of that one part of the SAO crossover event with the combo card pieces.

    It would've been neat if these custom Black Combo Cards were permanent as-is, or at least had a longer duration than the regular 30 days.
    But I guess VIP service exists. And even if you let you card expire, VIP service will render it usable once again for the duration of your service.

    Almost all of the other rewards expiring isn't great, either.
    Then again I like holding onto stuff like that for when I really need them.

    Ah, most notably, these combo cards can be customized with non-Dan skills, such as Heat Buster and Hailstorm.

    Also, you could always try and get your hands on a Permanent Combo Card Coupon, to make a combo card last forever, although I doubt many are around any more. It was a tradable item in some old gacha.

    Yeah, I had an untradeable one from some event in 2015ish I think.
    I... used it last week...
    on a Gold combo card...
    that I'm going to try and make (a better version of) in this event.

    Good times, lol.

    The skills selection is random when you change it via the coupon so realistically you should only try to min max the last two skills while using advancement badges for the rest. You simply won't have enough points to get every skill slot the way you want via event points. That means a 6x hailstorm card is forever never ever lol.
    Edit: apparently 6x hailstorm cards don't even work so don't bother trying lol

    Wait, so the skill change is random? I thought the entire point of this event was to get a combo card of your own design. If the skills are random, then it's far far worse than just using advancement badges. I guess this event is just to get a few gems?

    It's a random skill within the category. The point is that you can get higher rolls at later stages than with advancement badges.
    wat? why?
    You would need to re-cast the skill each time for the bonus.

    It's really strange that Thunder and Hailstorm function this way, but skills like Flame Burst count each hit as part of the combo.

    Yeah, supposedly Heat Buster when Elemental Wave'd (giving it 3 attacks) also counts as three skill uses, oddly enough.
