    BEWARE that 3x skill-up rate ends before the new rotation.

    Jewels still don't skill up Awoken Chinese. Another month with 10+ light jewels gathering dust in my box and another month with A.Sakuya at sl.1. I'll probably be able to gather 4 more shynpys before jewels cycle back to skilling up Awoken Chinese.

    Trifruits will skill up Tsubaki, Sumire, and Kaede, respectively. I rolled a dupe Sumire during the last godfest and I only have 11 blue trifruits in my box. I wince when I think of the times I sold or fed blue trifruits to clear box space. You'd think I would have learned after going 3/23 on Ronia skill-ups. Two Sumires, 10 skill-ups required total, so I'm guessing I'll need to farm up 30-40 blue trifruits and then stash them until after 3x skill-up rate returns. Looks like I might be spending stones on box space again.

    Queen Metal Dragon will skill up Satsuki. So glad I didn't start leveling her yet. Time to loot my mail for all those Queen Metal Dragons!

    Baby PreDra will skill up Fenrir. Sure, you'll miss out on some MP if you feed baby PreDras to Fenrir for skill-ups. But I max-skilled my Gadius during the rotation when baby PreDras skilled him up and it took me about 30 minutes and 1 stone. It was one of the easiest skill-up campaigns ever. And I can make up the MP with a few Scarlet, Linthia, or Z8 runs.

    Finally JP dragon caller skill-ups return. I have THREE Sumires that need to be skilled up; too bad skilling up from trifruits SUCKS.

    I have 2 tsukabi and 1 sumire to skill up.
    I bet I'll get mostly green trifruit...

    I feel like now is an opportune time to post the link to the build @dms1485 and I used to speed-farm Thursday Mythical:

    http://puzzleanddragonsforum.com/threads/thursday-mythical-co-op-speed-farming.95528/

    dms1485 brought Goemon, Raph, 2 Rodins, and A.Ra.

    I brought Goemon, 6 SB, 11 fire rows, and a positive attitude. My part was to join the co-op room and swipe Goemon on the final floor.

    That's just one way to do it. I'm confident there are many, many others.

    On a related note: Up for some Thursday Mythical farming this week, dms1485? :)

    How long has it been on this now? I'm in the same boat, so many light jewels lying around I hate to spend shynpy on Sakuya when I rarely use her.

    And I realized this morning how easily ALB sweeps Thursday Mythical. :)

    Way too long. I would estimate it's been over half a year at this point now.

    EDIT: According to the list I found in PadGuide, it's been 14 months as of yesterday (6/3/2015).

    NA

    A.Sakuya 6/3/15
    LKali 4/4/16
    Saria 5/10/16
    Kanna 6/8/16
    Saria 7/6/16

    Here's the list for JP:

    A.Sakuya 7/1/15
    LKali 3/16/16
    A.Sakuya 4/28/16
    Kanna 5/26/16
    A.Sakuya 7/6/16

    ...Yeah, I dunno.

    For you guys asking about jewels and the Chinese gods, it's not coming back. They will be rotating on gfes only change will be to new gfes. This has been talked about several times but if for some reason you are still waiting you can stop now.

    Why would you still think they are coming back anyway? Lol

    Because it's cycled back to skilling up Awoken Chinese twice on the JP rotations. (See my previous post.)

    But that's not a guarantee that NA will follow suit. Ever.

    That's fine but it's been over a year as you have said. If it hasn't happened you should resign yourself to the realization that it won't. Perhaps you will now.

    Did someone from Gungho NA actually state this, or is it just speculation?

    Yes, but at least Thursday Mythical won't be able to troll you for a long time to come because you can use any of the 3 trifruits. Compare that to farming red trifruits for Urd (yes, I did it) and maybe that will put a silver lining on your storm cloud. :)

    Finally I'll be able to use those blue trifruits that were clogging my box e.e
    Finally time to use those queen dragons :p

    And also, I'm surprised that Extreme Metal Dragon Tamadra will have it's skill changed :p

    I'm just waiting for the gfe skill up dungeons to come in slowly...
    Then only reason why to run trifruits is to skill up the sonias...

    Update: I went 4/7 to max-skill Sakuya earlier this week.

    [​IMG]

    Either the law of averages finally played out in my favor or I can expect to pull several Ivory Dragons in a row during the next godfest.

    Regardless, I'm very happy with my max-skilled Sakuya!
