    With Dark Shibamaru added to several dungeons, what is the best (or least painful) way to farm skill-ups for Akechi?

    I'm not in a hurry because I don't have Pandora, ALuci, or Gremory, but I'd like to max-skill him eventually in case I find a place for him on an existing dark team or pull a better dark lead someday.

    Dark Carnival lowest level with a button push team. Even better if you have other subs to do along with him.

    To bad Dark Carnival isn't a thing right now. Just go ahead with ya bad self and do Sumire skill up dungeon. It sucks though, I've done 30+ runs and have only gotten 2 Dark Shibamaru's.

    Trust me I psyched myself as well, I was like "alright, I have a sure fire way to get akechi and sanada and mori skill ups all in one!" I have 4 Akechi's to skill up now... ugh... (just pulled my fourth)

    I'll probably wait until Dark Carnival cycles back around or returns to the coin dungeon lineup, then farm it on lowest difficulty with a push-button team on 2x drop rate days.

    If I had a dark lead that could make better use of Akechi, I might be in a bigger hurry, but as things stand? Meh. No rush.

    Wait till Dark carny indeed; can get a couple if you're farming the JP dragon caller skillups recently, but I did 3/3 on two different accounts without even trying hard during dark carny. Now if we could just get rider 2.0 skillups there =/.

    @Sherufanir bad luck on the farming, it's not common but I did pretty close to the expected 1/3 of my runs in both the red and blue dragon farming Tsubaki and now Sumire skillups at least under 2x drops.

    Too many floors get skipped on that dungeon without 2x, my apocalypses not be happy.

    I'm in a HUGE rush right now. I have to prepare for HXM (so I have to skill up 2 D/D Akechi's) and I'm trying to finish my Xin Hua team (2 D/L Akechi's) AND ALSO get ready for Anaphon to be released. Akechi is just the star of the show lately. I hope they put Dark Shibamaru in Halloween dungeon this year like they did with Durga's skill up last year.

    I need to skill up my second Akechi for Anaphon. This isn't going to be fun

    Its really not to bad, I max skilled one Akechi in 2-3 days, just run Sumire Skillup on Int (15 Stamina) Button to floor two, if Shadow Shibamaru doesn't show or doesn't drop then quit out. Thats what I did tbh.

    And if you don't want to do that I think Dark Carnival gets released not this next rotation but the one after.

    Excellent strategy! I've been doing that with the Kaede dragon dungeon and I almost have my 3rd Akechi skilled.

    Tried farming Int with a push-button team tonight.

    56 stamina for 7 runs, 1 drop, and 0 skill-ups.

    :/

    Looks like I'll be waiting for Dark Carnival.

    Honestly, do what I said before. Button to floor 2, if you get it then continue the dungeon, if you don't, then quit out and start over again. Its really simple and its just how I've used my stamina recently because I'm just working on skill ups and shtuff.
