    Anyone rolling? Pretty lackluster revival as far as the meta goes. Did my mandatory freebie and $.99 roll.

    Ishtar and Hestia for me. Same two, same order as last year lol. Nothing all that useful in there and I like Hestia so I'm not gonna complain (gotta keep at least 1% of my roll posts positive).

    Ishtar and Susano for me... in reverse order of how I rolled them last year. Heh.

    I'd like a Green Yog, but I'm at zero stones and not enough trade fodder that I'm willing to part with, so...

    Freebie was Lumiel. I'm still debating about taking a YOLO roll.

    <3 for PA Lumiel. Excellent active (100K lasers with a relatively low cooldown are super useful!) and really cute art.

    Pass. Though I wouldn't mind having that new Ama to play with.

    free roll was Theurgia.

    Main (free+$1): Sasukex2
    Alt (free+$1): Theurgia, Lumiel
    Pretty awful luck, but about what I expected. I really wanted that Uruka for the 2 seconds and rainbow active, but the rates are terrible. And high TE cards are increasingly common, so I'm going to avoid trading for her as well. I'm still convinced that Gungho's RNG is somehow linked to some permanent aspect of our accounts. My main and alt always seem to hit diamonds at similar rates in both collabs and SGFs (they seem to deviate from the expected rates provided by gungho in very similar directions and to similar degrees). They share the same starter and group among other things.

    How do all of you feel about the student handbook? Is it worth the effort and loss of stamina when we have the super plus egg cave on a daily basis? I'm definitely going to farm the diamond dragon fruits, super snowglobes, etc., but the handbook requires a lot of farming for what at least seems like little return.

    You can't farm the Super Snow Globe. IIRC It's one time exchange only.

    She is pretty cute. And she wasn't a dupe, so bonus for that!

    Nope. That's as far as I'll go. The one time thingers. It's something like 600+ bronze for the equip. Even if you're getting gold drops left and right, that is just tedious.

    625 = 5 * 5 * 5 * 5

    Yeah, this medal farming needs to stop. It was worth it for Kage (IMO), but it's questionable for this equip if you already have Odysseus and resist equip assists from MH. At this rate, they're more likely to lose players rather than keep them engaged.

    3 gold medals = 1 rainbow medal farming is tolerable, but 5 gold medals = 1 rainbow medal is horribly tedious.

    1st pull Yog, 3rd Uruka, so I pulled some more, reality presented itself and finally quit. Not unhappy with my luck though.

    I'm farming it for MP as well as those medals. When I'm lucky, I got 4-5 Fairy Tale girls to drop out of 10 runs.

    I'm going to try to farm 2-3 of the student handbooks. It's one of the best general-purpose equips released to date that will literally make any card better on any team. Good assists are arguably the most valuable cards in the game right now, so it's nice to get a great one basically for free. The farming is super tedious, though. I don't think I've seen a single gold medal drop yet.
