    A lot of pleasant accomplishments have happened recently that I thought I'd never quite reach.

    I earned the loyalty of my first Athena (and obtained the final heartbreaker) after a long and satisfying battle with Bastet, and somehow managed to obtain Zeus on my first serious try with a simple and underpowered Light Kali team. Both of these were 0-stones and lovely surprises! I also ultimate evolved and have started to awaken Sakuya in addition to earning Isis her water/light form...thus gaining the use of my second 25x lead and a form I've been aspiring for, both leaders I've wanted since the earliest days of my account. It's a sudden and pleasing realization to know that I have a good variety of very powerful leaders and some decently invested subs.

    And today, I finally obtained dear Starling. And then I obtained 4 more to awaken her with plans for 2 more. Blue Backwater was active when I first started, nearly a year ago, and the beautiful dragon enchanted me so...and despite my best efforts, I was nowhere near strong enough to even finish Expert. It was kind of crushing. For one reason or another, I never got another chance. It is a sweet moment to finally obtain one, 170 ranks and countless experience later.

    This thread isn't interesting, or impressive, or much of anything. It's just nice to be happy with where I am and how far I've come. c:

    Hi All,
    Congratulations! :) It's always great to see how much progress can happen over time - from seeing dungeons and wondering if you can take them, to fully knocking them over and taking on harder Descends with great teams!

    Isn't that the truth. I only play this game for personal satisfaction, and it's nice that progression is so clear. In any case, thank you :3

    Thank you very much, icebarrier! That means a lot. ~^.^~

    I think the thread is interesting. You had a goal and achieved it! Kudos. Keep rocking on.

    I get lots of satisfaction from just leveling up my monsters which is kind of strange.

    Well, it's certainly satisfying to see cards at max! (Or at least at nice round numbers if you're neurotic like me. ^_^; )

    That aside, thank you. I'll do my best! c:

    Thank you very much! :>

    Congrats on your achievements so far :). Getting Starling must have meant a lot as well (my favorite dragon series being the princesses because they were the first I could obtain). Overall though its nice to see someone so happy about the game and I hope you continue to keep that way.

    Thank you, Striker! =)

    Starling has always been my absolute favorite dragon, and earning one is almost like a benchmark. The only other dragon series that I keep around, by coincidence, is your favorite!

    I'm not always so positive about Puzzle and Dragons, I fail very often and can be hard on myself because of that. Still, it's important for me to step back and realize that it's simply a game every now and then. If I don't find it fun or satisfying, then there is no point in playing, and learning to appreciate the relatively little things helps.

    In any case, thank you. ~w~

    You obtaining Starling reminds me of the way I felt when I got Hadar after almost waiting an entire year too. I could only run Expert and ran it as much as I could, but never got him sadly :p Congrats on all your achievements though!

    It's so nice when you finally obtain that one special card. :3

    Congrats to you too, and thanks! ^-^
