Opus X First Details!

From the Final Fantasy TCG Australia Facebook:

Opus X – Ancient Champions releases November 8th

Comprising 130 standard cards + 162 premium cards
10 exclusive cards from the new 2 player starter sets “Wraith VS Knights” plus a whopping 22 special Rare Full Art Cards! Players who go for a full display will also be rewarded with a special promotional card.

As the iconic Warrior of Light figure suggests, Opus 10 features numerous characters whispered of in myth and legend and sees the introduction of the new key word “Damage”, which initiates unique text effects once a player has taken a specified amount of damage. This opens up further tactical options, such as deliberately taking damage or holding off from dealing it in the early game, leading to even more exciting late-game developments than ever seen before! Players & collectors can also expect more original artwork by the renowned artists, as well as the introduction of a new spinoff from the main series: Final fantasy xii revenant wings

伊藤龍馬(Ryoma Ito) FINAL FANTASY XII REVENANT WINGS, FINAL FANTASY XI
泉沢康久(Yasuhisa Izumisawa) World Of Final Fantasy
浅見瑠比(Rubi Asami) Mobius Final Fantasy
上国料勇(Isamu Kamikokuryo)FINAL FANTASY XII
松田俊孝(Toshitaka Matsuda) FINAL FANTASY III
オグロアキラ(Akira Oguro)Final Fantasy IV

Looks like we have a full art Legend Squall for the box topper, and goddamn his effect is pretty sweet.

Translation provided by Byan of the r/FinalFantasyTCG Discord:

Squall 3CP 7k

SeeD Candidate

ETB: Choose 1 Character, if your opponent has 2 cards or less in their hand, dull it.

Damage 2 ETB: Choose 1 Character, dull it and freeze it

Damage 5 ETB: Choose 1 Forward, if it is dull, deal it 8k damage.

He seems pretty powerful, and shows off the new keyword that was previously mentioned on stream! The thing that I really want to know, is does he gain these abilities as you gain more damage, or do they replace each other? I’m really happy for Ice to get a useful on-curve forward, we’ve had far too many 4CP 7ks, and let’s not forget he’s searchable off of Laguna!

I guess we’ll find out about the new keyword closer to November!

  1. All right so I only started playing a little bit ago, about 2 months before Opus 8 came out. But I have to admit, news like this already gives me fatigue. We don’t even have Opus 9 and 10 is coming out just a few months later? 3 Opus’s in one year? Is that normal? That is just way too fast for me and my wallet. I love this game a lot but I really wouldn’t mind more time for each new set to breathe.

    1. One opus every 4 months is normal for the game, and as far as other card games go it’s a very spread out release schedule. It stops certain decks being on the top for too long which massively helps player retention. If you started 2 months before 8 came out: that was halfway through opus 7’s lifespan. Very normal for tcgs!

      1. That’s crazy, that just seems so fast to me! I am very much the content type so I’m never in a rush that I HAVE to have something new. But if that’s normal I guess we will see Opus 11 in February.
