    Despite some people's lack of enthusiasm for tomorrow's GF, I still plan on rolling. The way I look at it, the chances of rolling Fujin are still extremely low regardless of whether GFE are at 5x or 4x. Furthermore I have a greater chance of rolling the featured pantheons with GFE at 4x instead of 5x. From what I have seen and experienced, 5x GFE usually ends up being a 5 star GFE dupe fest.

    I'm gonna roll on Day 1 too. Gonna go in for just a few rolls and low expectations though. Good luck!

    With Grisar and Grida skill ups all finished I have started working on my next skill up project, Ilsix. This is mainly for my alt and the eventual farmable skill assist update. My alt lacks a water & heart maker. Will likely assist him onto Beach Navi.

    Been running the dungeon with uevo NephDra x Meridionalis. Doesn't seem too bad just a little slow on Starling and Ilsix. Blodin Tamadra bind on one of the leaders is annoying.

    5x remains live through the weekend, so hopeful to make some progress.

    Why don't you use TANs?
    I did Serket from scratch with two stamina bars.

    LOL for some reason I knew you were going to post saying something about TANs. My alt has rolled a bunch of water cards from collabs that have needed those pesky weapon drops to skill. Rather than painfully farm those dungeons for 2 weeks, I have been using all my King Bubtans there. I have skilled Toshiro, Grimmjaw x2 and Scheat Regalia Shinji this way. Oh and Khepri too since that dungeon is pretty annoying. If I had the King Bubtans I would totally do it for Ilsix too, but running the tan dungeon is really inefficient for me right now since I really only need Bubtans. Thankfully Ilsix's dungeon is available 24/7 so it is really only a matter of patience at this point.

    Analysis

    :egg5:
    : Cerberus Rider - Dupe - Rating: 0 - MP.
    :egg5:: Sima Yi - New - Rating: 5 - This guy was one of my top 3 targets (Fujin and Ma Chao were the other 2). Very happy to get him.
    :egg4:: Ivory Dragon - Dupe - Rating: 0 - These can't get pulled from the REM soon enough. MP.
    :egg5:: Phact - Dupe - Rating: 0 - Already have one hypermaxed that I never use as a sub or for skill assist. MP.
    :egg5:: Sitri - New - Rating: 3 - Wish she had God type. Nice skill assist.
    :egg5:: Eschamali - New - Rating: 5 - Yay for new 6 star GFE. I feel like she has fallen a bit out of favor, but still an awesome addition to my dark box.
    :egg5:: Dark Chester - New - Rating: 1 - Can't see much use for him either as a sub or for skill assist.
    :egg5:: Raphael - Dupe - Rating: 0 (potentially a 3) - Going to keep this dupe for now in case his Awoken Evo adds something new.
    :egg4:: Red Rider Hood - New - Rating: 3 - Nice to have a fire bind clear to use for skill assist.
    :egg5:: Dino Rider - New - Rating: 1 - Never really used other Riders I have rolled. Don't see this guy being any different.
    :egg5:: Light Rei Sirius - New - Rating: 2 - Nice awakenings and low CD for skill assist base. Might find a home.
    :egg5:: Horus - New - Rating: 4 - Better than originally thought. His revo adding attacker sub type could have synergy with my alt. REvo stats and low CD makes him an excellent skill assist base.
    :egg5:: Dino Rider - Dupe - Rating: 0 - MP.
    :egg5:: Red Sonia - Dupe - Rating: 0 - Already have 2 for skill assist. MP.
    :egg5:: Raphael - Dupe - Rating: 0 - Why couldn't you have been Gabriel or Michael. MP.
    :egg5:: Markab - New - Rating: 1 - Nice to have for the set, but outclassed by other options in my fire box.
    :egg5:: Silk - New - Rating: 3 - Yay for Gemstone Princess! Having said, I think she will only have application for solo play. You need a lot of orb enhances to even get her multiplier up to Freyr's level. Just not as versatile as the Water, Light and Dark gemstones.
    :egg4:: Light Swordsman - Dupe - Rating: 0 - Sold previous copies of this guy, this one will be the same. MP.
    :egg5:: Markab - Dupe - Rating: 0 - MP
    :egg5:: Masamune - New - Rating: 1 - Feel like these guys are just outclassed by other options. The low cd makes them ok as a skill assist base. Even then yuck. Probably not keeping him.
    :egg5:: Red Sonia - Dupe - Rating: 0 - MP.
    :egg5:: Red Chester - New - Rating: 1 - See comments for Dark Chester.
    :egg5:: Satsuki - New - Rating: 3 - Nice sub on Revo Haku for solo play. Too bad she converts water.
    :egg5:: Dantalion - New - Rating: 3 - 2nd new 6 star GFE. Can't really see a use for him right now, but I am sure I will.
    :egg5:: Red Chester - Dupe - Rating: 0 - MP
    :egg5:: Sumire - Dupe - Rating: 3 - Nice to have a dupe for solo system.
    :egg4:: Okita - New - Rating: 0 - So useless. MP.
    :egg5:: Belial - New - Rating: 2 - Current evos aren't super interesting but he is getting an awoken evo later this month. Fingers crossed.

    Stats:

    6 star GFE: 2
    5 star GFE: 5
    Featured Pantheon: 3
    Gala Pantheon: 3 (including Silk)
    Troll Gold: 11
    Silver: 4

    +Egg Distribution
    +HP: +800
    +ATK: +150
    +RCV: +450

    I knew I was going to get screwed over here. Won't be as bad once I sell dupes and take into accounts cards I will never +.

    General Thoughts
    Honestly not sure yet. Can't see a lot here as being true game changers. My next big decision is whether to purchase Ra Dra or Dark Athena. I have some good but not optimal subs/skill assists for both. No rush really. Back to saving stones!!!

    Thanks, I think....! Could always be better I guess. Especially with non iap stones. Took a long time to save up that much. Still though, some great stuff. Two biggest things that bothered me are getting 2 dupe Raphaels instead of either Michael or Gabriel and the number of troll golds. Getting double Red Chester, Dino Rider and Markab hurt. A Zeta Hydra sure would have been nice.

    Project Ilsix is all done, well at least the skill up part. Alt finished at 10/20. Main was only at 6/15, but unlike my alt does have some extra king bubtans so got the last 4 skills ups that way.

    Going to start working on another farmable skill assist project in Linthia. I could actually use King Woodtans for this but her dungeon is pretty easy to farm so not sure. Not like there is any rush.

    Got my +egg distribution all sorted out. Took a little while to go through and identify the new cards I wanted to hyper and then match that up with the +eggs I had on hand. Ended feeding some of my new cards to help fix distribution that I would have otherwise sold for MP. Not too many that I can't make up with a couple solid days of rogue farming. I have already +297'd the following new cards:

    Eschamali
    Sima Yi
    Dantalion
    Horus
    Satsuki

    All are now at various stages of completion towards being hypermaxed.

    Still have some +eggs left but this more or less cleaned out my reserves.

    This also got me to exactly 100 +297s, so I got my RCV badge. Yay!

    Got Linthia skilled up on both accounts. My Alt went 0/5 on its first feed (so painful during 5x). After going 2/5 on the next feed I was like fuck it, I'ma using King Woodtans for the rest.

    Haha made you look. Not even my alt can justify rolling in this shit REM. This came like a year too late.

    Voltron when!

    So apparently I have 13 cards with Revos that are either live in NA or announced in JP that I will likely make at some point. Some are higher priority than others. Assuming I make them all, I will need 208,000,000 on monster xp.

    I am sure more will be announced as well.

    Not gonna lie, this might break me.

    Don't think my OCD will allow me to use a card that isn't max level.

    When the fuck did baby rubies get buffed to be worth so much monster xp? I have sold off so many of these fuckers just running Z8. Ugh.

    Yeah, at least Raphael has a unique and useful active.
    I have no problem with less than max level -- my Horus has been living at L98 for weeks. However, I find it utterly impossible to deliberately avoid max awakening a card. I see these post that suggest just not taking the final killer awakening of some cards and I'm like.. yeah, or I could bang on my toe with a hammer!

    I did a quick comparison of regular and super rubies and it does appear that regular rubies is better except for the God super run of 3 kings and 2 supers which I don't think has ever happened to me in 3 years of playing. Haven't done the comparison against SKC.
