    Still alive.

    I cleared the "little" SR1, SR2, and SR3 dungeons. Little SR3 was obnoxious and I didn't get any worthwhile drops from SR2 or SR3. In hindsight, it was a waste of time and not worth it for a single first clear stone.

    I finally put the work in and collected 3 drops of each of the 2 secret bosses in the Fairies event earlier today. Glad to have that done. HUGE thanks to @sgt502 for this very helpful video:



    I replaced chibi Artemis with Pixel Takamimusubi and the DAthena assist with Echidna Sara. Builds were otherwise the same as in the video.

    I do not plan to skill the secret boss drops up, though. If and when I ever have a need to skill them up, I figure I can farm pys during a GungHo collab rerun.

    Highlight pulls from the Fairies REM were Phyllis and Jera on my alt and Natsuru, Narcis, and 2 Jera on my main.

    Got Bride Elsha as my free pull on my main from June Bride. Got rubbish (specifically, Bride Ruka #4) on my alt.

    Cobbled together a Selica x Naut build to bypass F2 (Lucifer test) in Alt Shura 1:

    It works, but I suspect that a Ferule team would be considerably faster if I just had the tech to build a Ferule team that could bypass F2. :/

    Pardon while I vent about my collab REM trash rolls on my main.

    Monogatari: 448 stones and no Nadeko, Araragi, or Suruga but I pulled FIVE Shinobu. Hanekawa is irrelevant without Captain Marvel. Mayoi was my consolation prize and sees niche use on my VIdeal x LMenoa when spinners are a problem.

    YGO: No Yugi, no Kaiba, no Bakura. Got 5 Kuriboh and 6 Gandora, though! /cry

    Fujimi: No 7* at all. Got 3 Majic Lin and 2 Xellos for ranking dungeons, though? I guess that's good?

    Power Rangers: 9 pulls, no high rarity monsters.

    Samsho: Ukyo and Haohmaru were my only 6* and I pulled a lot.

    Shaman King: Regret and two Opacho (one of which actually makes a decent lead swap equip). At least I have Joco for Scheat x Madoo + MGoe army swipe teams.

    Street Fighter: A bunch of rubbish, including 5 Balrog and 3 Mika, and M. Bison and Chun Li.

    Fate: ~20 rolls and only one 6* (Saber).

    Kamen Rider: Can't complain too much since I didn't roll hard and I got OOO.

    Sword Art Online: Trash.

    Gintama: Can't complain. Didn't roll much and got Okita for farm builds.

    Persona: Trash.

    Yu Yu Hakusho: A useless 6* (Raizen) and rubbish.

    King of Fighters: So many rolls, so much regret. Only one 6* pull and the worst one (Mai).

    Full Metal Alchemist: Barely rolled.

    Monster Hunter: NO ZINOGRE NO MATTER HOW MANY STONES I FLUSHED. Akantor turned out to be a pretty rockin' fire team sub, though.

    Kenshin: Don't care. Stopped rolling after I got Kaoru for my ALB + Dios army swipe teams that were relevant back then.

    Bleach: Waste of stones.

    Final Fantasy: Could've been worse. Could've been way better. Got Balthier, Aerith, Lightning, and Cecil.

    Fist of the North Star: Barely rolled.

    Hello Kitty: Can't be mad. Traded for ZKitty. No regrets.

    Evangelion: Trash.

    Shinrabansho: Pulled Kanan when she was relevant for 2 weeks. Van Crow has helped in a few gravity cheese builds. Waste of box space otherwise (well, except for Sigma for that one ranking dungeon).


    The only collabs that haven't been a dumpster fire are Demon Slayer, Devil May Cry, and, oddly enough, GungHo collab.

    For DS, I rolled hard and got 3 Muzan, Rengoku, Tanjiro, Nezuko, and Inosuke. Got 2 Giyu but I'm short one Sabito & Makomo for a system. (Not mad since I have 4 Furaku and Putotyra on my main and Evil Ryu on my alt.)

    For DMC, I pulled Dante and Vergil. Both have seen a fair bit of play. Vergil was crucial for SDKH farming and Vergil was the top pick for pairing with Remu before Rengoku.

    GungHo collab has been shockingly kind: DReeche, Sari (excellent pairing for Grigory), GH Yomi (pulled long after GH Yomi x Norza was meta), 2 Gamayla, GH Loki (underrated lead when paired with base Sophie), Zeta, 2 Berte (still haven't found a use for her since I already had Selica to pair with Nautilus), 3 Raizer (DRaizer remains one of the staple subs for my wood teams), GH Minerva, 3 GH Karin (DKarin was my lead of choice when I was farming A5), Kisaragi, Rudra, Ralg, 3 Orage, 3 Cian (one of whom is chibi and an assist on my Selica to counter lead swaps in endgame dungeons), Bradamante, and Noir.

    Mysterious Dungeon (MD1) progress report 10/3/21

    Made it to floor 11 but couldn't KO Macha before her execute.

    I don't have PA Valeria on either account and I don't have Alynna on my main, so SR Ceres with JJK Todo equip is the substitute.

    Got top 20% in the ranking dungeon on both accounts within a few tries with Furaku system teams. Satisfied with that.
