    I didn't get Bartz from the FF REM, so I may have to make do with Pixel Brachys.

    My Brachys has 8 more skill levels to go.

    What is the most efficient way to farm Brachys skill-up fodder?

    I maxed a Fafnir way back when, but I wasn't really going out of my way to farm it - it just happened over time from running assorted stuff, since the green chimeras appear in a bunch of places.

    But looking quickly at the list of fodder, I'd guess the two best choices are either green Mechdragon, since the green chimera is a guaranteed appearance, though not sure on the drop rate. Probably high if not 100%? As an added bonus, you could max skill a Canopus while you're at it, if you can be bothered. ;)

    The other choice might be the GungHo collab from the coin dungeons. Jelly's Angel skills up Brachy, and doesn't need to be evolved to do it. But you are at the mercy of RNG for appearances and drops. Also not sure what the drop rate is on the lower difficulties (for stamina saving).

    Another option would be the Flower Dragon dungeons in the coin dungeons. According to PADx, the master and legend difficulties for each one has one floor with 2 chimeras; a Flower (wood) Chimera, and one of the others. This sprang to mind because I actually ran legend in most of them tonight (5 runs total. Building yet another Starling) and picked up 3 Flower Chimeras along the way.

    You can also try the green Legendary Dragon on 2x rates if it still gets those. Otherwise the boss drop rate isn't very good.

    If it's not urgent, the most stamina efficient is probably to farm baby tamadras and trade them for chimeras. I skilled most of my starters and late bloomers doing this.

    mechdragons are best, imo. I'm pretty sure the chimera floor is 100%. Rather, it was back when I farmed up skills for my dragonfruit evo. RIP 10x technicals.

    Or, yes, trade. I've been trading a plus egg on a poopy 4* for chimeras along with non-wood kingtans for wood kingtans and had almost daily success for about two weeks straight, but it fizzled out a few days ago.

    can confirm 100% drop rate on chimera after about 30 runs of green mechdragon with no drop rate boost
