I don't think boosters increase the chance of getting rare blades. From what I heard, those only increase the odds of getting two elements over the rest. For example, the Justice Booster would increase the chances of getting a light or dark Blade.

Aren't Rare Blades locked to a specific element though?

Sure, but you're not guaranteed a Rare Blade either way. If you use a Justice Booster, you can still get a generic Blade that is Dark element.

I have bad news for you: using a legendary core often yield a common blade too. Out of approximately 10 legendary cores, I got a single rare blade.

Yay, first Rare Crystal used produced Yaegiri!
Same Attack type as Homura, but who cares. *switches Common Blade for Yaegiri*

I'm not expecting that, but even this at least prioritizes the elements for rare blades that i want. It's not that I actually lose anything for using them anyway.

Literally. Gacha. Hell.

Anyway. I got done with an sidequest that surprising had two interesting outcomes to it.
Spoiler for Ch 3:

For the time being I'm just sticking with favorites and likes of everyone until that is fill out. Then I will start making my own choices.

EDIT:

For anyone who needs some quick common and rare core crystals will probably keep this in handy.

Has anyone found any effective ways for increasing your chances on rare blades aside from dumping boosters in? I'm starting chapter 4 and I haven't opened a single rare core until I can get all the parameters in order.

Only the idea levels have some kind of influence, and even then, it is more about the element of the blade, not the actual rarity. You just have to beat the system with sheer number of cores.

Is there any point in the game where I can bench Rex? I want to use Zeke, but there's no point if Rex is already filling the attack role.

There are few parts of the game where Rex is mandatory, but otherwise, you can have any character you want in your party, in any number up to 3.

The battle system gets so much more fun as you learn more about it (that goes for all Xenoblade games though, like Cross' Overclock). I didn't really get the combo-ing of elements until later, but once I did, man...
Like this one

the final moment was like, bam! Feels so good. Hotaru-kyuuunnnn!!

It really reaches its peak once you get the art cancel passive. Triple blade switching changes completely the pacing of the fights.

If you want to have proper equipment for Hana/Poppi, you definitely have to work a bit, because base parts start being underwhelming around chapter 4-5.
And if you want to completely change her setup, that's a lot of ether to grind.

Itís a lot better to farm gold chips for 50% item drop rate. 9 out of 10 enemies will drop common core crystals once you have it on your party members. Zeoth Serpond in Temperantia is a good place to farm for them.
