Have people started stockpiling skill-up materials for the tan update?

    I'm feeling like it may be close enough that I should save stuff instead of feeding.

    Also, I'm assuming I don't need to stockpile tans because they'll still be available at the same rates after the update? Tho stockpiling them wouldn't hurt, if one has the space.

    No, I'm just using piis on everything I want to skill up [​IMG]

    Seriously though I feel like it'll just be part of the daily PAD life to have this system rather than anything we need to stockpile for. If you don't have them max skilled now they probably weren't a huge priority for you anyway.

    You should have a Tan Dungeon from Quest. Save that for when you need to skup.

    That's not true, I've got new stuff that I haven't skilled up yet.

    The thing I was working on today was Ishida. But thanks to 4x skill-up, it worked out fine--went 4/5 on skill-ups and finished him no problem.

    But will the regular Tan Dungeon appear any less frequently?

    Once the jewels became daily there are only 2-3 different guerillas per day. Seems less but prob not since prior was just 3-4 jewels in between tans/super/fatass/evo/jewels

    I'm saving 17 Kiramitsuha. This is the only farmable cards that I want to max skilled (and Myr ofc) and the thought of farming her up all day and not getting a single skill up even when feeding five copies scared the shit out of me. I'll just wait for the King Tan.

    I have been for like 2 months now. Saved a lot of fodder from final fantasy for dupes and same now for bleach. Super lazy with my alt so i usually stop once I get 5 there.

    Got 6 flamtans and sufficient fodder for Laila ready to go.

    Beats the stuffing out of farming Legelonte for hours on end.

    I'll probably grab 3 more Phantom Keepers for Revo Hades and hang on to them until v9.6 arrives in NA, too.

    Haven't given it much thought beyond those 2 monsters yet, but I'm sure I'll come up with other fodder to save before we get the update.

    Only Toshiro skillups so I don't have to keep grinding Bleach. No hurry to skill them so I'll wait.

    I use piis also because they rain in JP server. No need to deal with NA's drought.

    Yeah I've started stockpilin skill-up mat for and . Because even if I have never failed -yet- this dungeon, it's too heavy on stamina to skill these up using the "old" method.

    Oh and also, I have to skill-up as well, and probably , and , since my success rate on these is not as good as it should be. I'll probably finish my Heras and with this method instead of using Piis.

    Oh yeah and also , but max skill lvl is 10 so HMMMMM NOT SURE.

    I like running A1 more than Babby Tier Descends or fucking annoying Annihilation dungeons. I will continue skilling everything with Piis.

    Besides, most shit I need to skil these days doesn't have fodder.

    The update where you can use five tans of the same color to evolve a king tan, and then if you feed it to some monster along with that monster's skill-up materials, you get a 100% skill-up rate.

    I've started to grow a small pile, yeah. It's mostly descend bosses that I've been passively getting from challenges or orb farming or MP farming. They were never priority (fed off for plusses!) but max skilled would be cool. I haven't been actively farming anything in advance, I can wait until post update for that

    Aside from just saving for tans, does anyone just save them in general?

    I have like 30-40 swords from Bleach that I don't have the cards for. I'm also sitting on a lot of those shibu dogs and some random dragons for the star gods.

    I can't decide if they're worth the box space to save for if, or when, I get the cards the skill up.

    how many skillups would this king tan give? does he count as a skillup mat or do you have to do this 4 at a time?
