    Okay, here's a WIP team build for AA4:

    [​IMG]

    Note that I'd likely change the latents on LMenoa, Reeche, Kanna, and friend VIdeal (which is on my alt). I'd also change the equip on friend VIdeal.

    Posting my AA3 ScheDra event farm team for future reference:

    [​IMG]

    NOTES

    If my math is correct, replacing OdinDra with Faygoran on Team A would allow you to lead swap turn 1. (I just haven't brought myself to evolve one of only two Sloth Eggs on my main to Faygoran when the Revo is irreversible and the equip is so very good.)

    If you're using a lead swap setup, make certain to clear F6 and F17 with the team that performed the lead swap as DAgni can spawn on F7 and Rokks can spawn on F18.

    Replacing DRaizer assist with umbrella equip on SR Bastet would solve the problem of her being bindable in co-op. But I don't have umbrella equip. :'(

    And here's another invade dragon farming build, this time for solo play!

    [​IMG]

    Pop Sloth Egg assist on Usui (to dump the active and ensure that Usui's active is available in case Fuma spawns on F4), transform Polowne, pop Weld assist on Suou for 1-turn delay, stall 1-2 turns, transform both Seinas, and sail along.

    And here's the closest equivalent I could build on my alt:

    [​IMG]

    Dump Sloth Egg active, transform Duval, transform Polowne, stall, transform both Seinas, and MELT EVERYTHING WITH RED + BLUE MATCHES.

    Both teams are very reliable!

    2 DKali
    3 Skuld
    7 Scheat
    5 Eschamali

    1 Baldin
    3 Fenrir Viz
    1 Dantalion
    2 Paimon
    3 Gremory
    3 Aten
    1 Ney
    2 Kamimusubi
    1 Macha
    2 Morrigu

    3 Rodin
    2 DMeta

    Okay, for my main, I'm thinking:

    2 Scheat
    1 Blodin
    1 Eschamali

    And for my alt, I'm thinking:

    1 DKali
    2 Skuld
    1 Eschamali

    My only concern is that GungHo will introduce equip evos for 6* GFEs in the future. It's not hard to imagine that a Scheat equip would be geared toward TPA teams and a DKali equip would be geared toward rainbow teams.

    After agonizing over the decision, I finally chose the PAD Appreciation 2019 (Fagan Rai/Zaerog Core) medal on both of my NA accounts.

    It was between that and the Spring Fest Medal (Zeal/Echidna/Hera) to get both Luna as a sub and Luna for her equip.

    I put off running AA4 during the Brahma Dragon invade event because it's such a horrid dungeon.

    After finally buckling down, building a team, getting a VDP latent to drop, and getting the BrahmaDra invade, this how it ended:

    [​IMG]

    Had a second run where I got a VDP latent and the BrahmaDra invade then somehow knocked YomiDra into the rage zone.

    Those two incidents yesterday and not rolling Nadeko or Araragi in 50 pulls (350 stones) across 2 accounts this morning have me planning to take a break from PAD after skilling up some of my Monogatari collab pulls.

    Going to post the Seina x Seina 2P build I came up with for when BrahmaDra invades return, but I think I need to take it easy until then.
