    Yesterday I decided that, with the 13 stones I'd accumulated, I would roll in the Godfest that's going on today. Naturally, I started looking around for Challenge mode stones to take along for 3 rolls and settled down in Tower of Ice Water. Pretty standard night of PAD so far, so I worked on other things (namely my journal and a webcomic I was reading) while slogging through.

    The Godfest starts while I'm away and stuck in the middle of the last section, so after finishing off Neptune I give my two rolls. They turn out to be (!!!) and , my first 6 star exclusive and a cute thing respectively! The crazy thing is, in the last Godfest I rolled my first Godfest exclusive since Light Kali, and it was a Zuoh. Funky times! :3

    Anyway, Tower of Ice Water had given me my 14th, but I needed one more magic stone. It was at this point exceedingly late/early, and since I had finished my journal entry I kind of wanted to go to bed with no easy sources of stones left. I'd be getting my login the next day, after all...but then I noticed that Sonia Gran Descended had come around again. I didn't touch it last time - too little faith in my skills, too many other dungeons to run - and since I wanted to go to sleep I figured I'd give it a try with Awoken Bastet and probably waste enough stamina to rest easy.

    Then I looked it up in PadGuide and realized that...it actually didn't seem all that bad. I'd gotten Earth Dragon for floor 1, and besides Red Sonia none of the other floors looked like TOO much of a pain even with my slightly lackluster, mostly farmable team. I'm not going to get into how each floor went, but overall I have to say that I played surprisingly well for my skill level (for once) and got a little lucky besides. Somehow, each floor went down with a fair amount of stress but not a lot of actual trouble. I was starting to consider what I'd thought impossible for myself.

    Then I got to Red Sonia, the most troublesome of the four...and was skill bound for 5 turns. Meimei, the weakest of the invades, invading on the most difficult floor, and on my first run of a descend since early July. Even more unbelievably, I actually managed to stall out the 5 turns with worryingly generous skyfalls and without getting her below 20%. After the miracle that was this floor, Sonia Gran seemed like nothing in comparison.

    So I got to her, busted out PadPrax, made a troublesome 1 TPA 1 combo board with Kaguya-Hime, and hoped to heaven that I could get her below 50%.

    I did.

    Then I burned Leeza and Cu Chu for a 3 TPA, 1 combo board with a surprisingly simple 7 combo path which I hoped I wouldn't screw up anyway.

    I didn't.



    ...and that's how I beat Sonia Gran on my first try with a pretty painless run despite usually playing like garbage. =o

    But wait, there's more! I got my last stone from beating it, remember. Still in disbelief, I go up to the Golden Dragon and receive my 6th (I rolled Zuoh, Haku and Sakuya last time!) gold egg in a row...and my 2nd 6 star exclusive in two rolls.

    , of all cards. After beating the one (?) descend she's featured in. My Awoken Isis has her dark coverage now. <3

    Days like these are few and far between. Best to cherish them when they come. c:

    Very nice! I haven't tried Sonia Gran today, but I took down God Rush this morning for the first time, so I'm probably going to try my luck against her with a similar team to what you used.

    Congrats! I have a high regard for your Bastet, and it looks like said regard hasn't been misplaced. Keep it up!
