If you're reading this, you're a friend and/or crewmate who was lucky enough to lucksack Shiva and/or Agni early enough that you may never need to farm sticks or staves in large amounts. This is intended as a guide for pre-HL players to build a "bootstrap" Summon s 2040094000.jpg Agni grid, and compare it to the options for M1 Magna.

"Available" Weapons

The following indicate farmable Fire-element (or otherwise relevant) weapons which are available without access to HL mats (most significantly Rubeus Centrum square.jpg Rubeus Centrum and Fire Urn square.jpg Fire Urn).

So Why Bootstrap?

The "Bootstrap" build falls behind a conventional pre-HL AES Colo grid around 85% HP remaining, and ends up with about half its expected damage at 1 HP. The pure numbers reasons for using this grid aren't ideal. Instead, it's intended to be relatively simple to farm, allowing future Agni players to advance in Fire quickly without spending resources on a magna grid.

Assuming good luck with the timing of Rise of the Beasts and Xeno Ifrit Clash, the entire grid can be farmed non-intensively in four months through leeching Twin Elements (Raid) and spending Renown on Erichthonius. (Weapon drops from TE or Athena raids can speed this up considerably.)

After reaching HL, most of these fall out of favour because Prometheus weapons are great, but at least Erichthonius and Ecke Sachs have some niche value alongside a Prom grid; sticks and staves aren't so lucky.
