    Where's the best place to farm for marine goblins now?
    water dragon adept? or Sea cave mercury: voice of siren? i wanna get over with the skill ups while x2 bonus is up.
    i tried both and dragon adept gave me 2 or 3 once and 0 for the other. voice of siren seems like it drops 1-2 almost every time. Which one is more efficient stamina wise? also do you guys know when skill up bonus event finishes?

    Both places are good for farming Marine Goblins, but I would prefer farming at Sea Cave Mercury.

    Sea Cave Mercury should have a 1.5x drop rate event going on today, you would end up getting more Marine Goblins there.

    Skill up event ends on March 22nd.

    I ran Voice of the Siren twice earlier during the x1.5 drop, and didn't get a single marine goblin (just bad luck) but I got a second mermaid to drop on my first run through (extremely good luck I guess). So now I have to max skill my first siren (only 2 more levels to go) and then try to get the second one up there too.

    I have trouble finding marines goblin too, see it in half of the mob, but only got 2 in 6 runs. Dragon flowers, on the other hand, I got 4.

    Oh well, I did got a skill up out of it from lv4 to lv5.

    Personally I'm a fan of Polar Night Tower, I actually got a succubus to drop while I was farming marine goblins, and a few mythlits.

    Oceanus Fall has better exp/sta & divine masks.

    I wanted to progress to there, but always spent all my stamina on special dungeons..
    btw, I found myself mobbed by Carbuncles during the 1.5x drop, an egg on every floor indeed, but many carbuncle. and dragon flowers!

    And thanks for the reminder on polar night, skipped my mind due to being dual element, and am in need of a Succubus.

    The drop rate was so-so during the 1.5 for Polar Night, I'd get 1 a run usually, maybe 2, but I'd rather get mythlits than divine masks (they make better feeder food for pendras if you have too many), but the exp/stam and feeder monsters are better than sea cave mercury.

    Sorry to high jack the thread.

    I was wondering if you are going to feed the goblin, do you feed them one by one or 5 in a roll?
    OR... it doesn't really matter >.>

    The problem I have now is my Siren (Not STE) is sitting at level 50.
    I have been farming sky dragon adept because of the weighted cost / money / stamina use and got okay drop. Though because she is a bit high level, the cost to feed her is a bit high :(

    Suggestion?

    If you can hold on to them, evo her, then skill up, hen level up...

    Some say they got better returns doing 3 at a time, but 5 is the most cost effective...

    I had been feeding my Siren 2 Marine Goblins at a time. (and there are times I get 2 skill ups at the same time) 5 at a time can disappoint you more. So it really doesn't matter. I wonder if you could get 5 skills up if you fed 5 Marine Goblins to her

    2 to 3 is what most people do. It is a good balance between being disappointed (if no skill ups) and being cost friendly. Feeding 5 at a time and getting no skill ups is a bad disappointment. That being said I guess theoretically you could feed 5 at once and get 5 skill ups but I think chances of that are so slim it borders impossibility.

    I've gotten 3/5 multiple times. Even 3/4 on some occasions.

    I would evolve her and only feed her Marine Goblins until your max skill her and then start leveling her again. My 2nd siren is sitting at max level 25 until her skill gets maxed

    Finally made it to Oceanus Falls during 1.5x,
    ran 12 runs, only got 4 goblins, also 2/5 mask, 2/4 king metal dragon

    and overwhelming number of pyro devil.
    In one run, I got 4 pyro devil and only pyro devils.

    Maybe drops is determined by higher tier to lower tier? hence also the dragon fruit trolling thread?

    Under the possibly incorrect assumption that all "non-rare" mobs have the same % chance of appearing in a normal wave, I collected this data.

    Total Choices Total Floors Stam Cost Location Exp/Stam Additional Perks Avg Drop per Stam
    5 6 8 Twin Temple 208 Angel 0.15
    6 6 7 Sea Cave Mercury 213 Siren 0.142857143
    5 9 15 Skydragon Int 238 0.12
    5 8 14 Rhea 5 449 0.114285714
    6 8 12 Oceanus 5 514 0.111111111
    5 6 11 Rhea 1 434 0.109090909
    6 6 10 Oceanus 1 449 0.1
    5 5 11 Rhea 3-4 495 0.090909091
    8 8 11 Polar 5 327 0.090909091
    6 5 10 Oceanus 4 406 Siren 0.083333333
    8 6 9 Polar 4 264 Lilith/Siren 0.083333333
    7 8 15 Ocean 5 454 0.076190476
    7 5 12 Ocean 3 395 Angel/Siren 0.05952381

    Forgive me for being too lazy to format, but it seems like Sea Cave Mercury would be best during 1.5x Drop, Skydragon Int best during 2x Drop, Oceanus 5 best with an intent on Leveling.

    Please provide input if you see anything that need to be mentioned

    sounds like a reasonable assessment. for me personally, it seemed that i got lower percentage of marine goblins from oceanus 5, but there may be some bias since i ran sea cave mercury many times more and it is much faster to clear.
