    When you go 15 runs without a IslandDra spawn, you start to wonder if it's feasible for NA to farm 120,000 of these elusive buggers.

    Yeah individual RNG sucks, but it can also be good. There are people who have the opposite spawns. I had 6 Beach ones spawn in a row yesterday.

    Overall though, the number of Beach spawns is almost exactly 20% of the total spawns, which is most likely the spawn rate (unless there's an army of people out there farming the lower one for some reason).

    We need 17,xxx a day to hit 120 in 7 days. We're at 41. We gained about another 4k this time last night. Should be fine if people continue farming.

    I'm about to run this co-op with my alt account and it occurred to me to wonder... each -dra that I get will count twice, right? The one my main got and the one my alt did?

    Well, I did my part. Ended with 9/27/9 on my alt and 9/32/7 on my main.

    Might farm some more if we're still short in the last 24-48 hours and I can beard swipe (my older daughter's name for my Kaede farming team) my way through when the guerrillas are up.

    Correct.

    I've been at work or asleep every single one so far. And I'm a teacher so it's not like I can just stop and take a break for a bit. Uggh

    I haven't been able to play a ton. After an early run of Beach dragons I'm currently sitting at 7/27/15 - playing self co-op. It'll be a slog to get to 120k for beach, but at least we're still on pace.

    Do you mean yours or all possible ones? Cause there's a discord channel and people are constantly putting rooms up.

    Honestly I'm probably not gonna pull my wait with the beachdras. Doesn't seem worth the effort for what's more than likely another kurone/fuu or goemon. Hate me of you need to. I did get my 7 though on 2 accounts.

    Actually I have gotten 3-4 Island REMDras for every 1 Gold REMDra. I literally got all the rewards for clearing the IslandDra ones before the GoldDra ones. Go figure.

    Day one I was able to run it on both accounts at night. Yesterday I didnt have a lot of time. I got my kids this week and my days are shot because I work 9-5. Tonight I will plow through it again on both accounts.

    Started tonight at 7/24/10....I am now 8/43/12.

    They must not have met their stone quota yet and turned the 20% down to 2%.

    Right now I’m at 3 for 30, I literally have more pemdra invades than those stupid summer rem invade. They are sure trying to make this as ugly as the first Japanese one.

    I’m not farming this shit anymore with this rate until they boost it.

    I went 9/27/10, and 14/33/13 on my two most used accounts.

    We should get Round 1 Island Rem completed today, and possibly round 1 PEMdra as well.

    Round 2 Island is going to take a lot of runs. Good thing is has exp value at my point in PAD.

    Round 1 Island REM clear!

    I have my doubts we're going to make the round 2 goal at this point, but I could be mistaken. Maybe GungHo will low key tweak the IslandDra spawn rates or give us more days with more guerrillas per day.

    Still, it's hard for me to get motivated when my round 1 pulls were BLakshmi on my alt (I already have Revo Lakshmi) and Navi on my main. :/

    I ran 6 times today, all Islands except a single gold. Maybe they tweaked?

    Maybe. I'd bother to find out if I didn't need a star chart to figure out my guerrilla times and then manually create a reminder in Google Calendar.

    I exaggerate, but oh my word I'm a grown man with a full-time job and I just don't have the patience for how GungHo is handling the REMDra guerrilla times.

    Last night I ran Myth for an hour and ended up with like 15-16 Islands, 7 Golds, and 3 PEM.

    IslandDras like me, I guess. :D

    I ran a bit so far today, not sure the TWEEK was a good one.

    I am just running Mythical for the day. First set was heavy Blues, but since, not so much. Also, in previous days I never saw a green on Mythical, today I am getting them too.

    Current counts are, 12/40/19, 17/49/23, and 7/25/10
