    Bought the $0.99 Summer REM bundle on both accounts tonight.

    Pulled summer Fuu #2 on both accounts.

    :feelsbadman:

    What's that, GungHo? You say you DON'T want my money? Oh, okay. Cool. Got it. I'll go spend it elsewhere.

    Thread title updated with new total IAP amount. Tonight's purchases put me over $40. Am I minnow now? Glub glub.

    10/1 Summer REM pulls

    Main
    Beach Chester (free) - WHY IS THIS ABOMINATION A CRYSTAL EGG
    Beach Pandora - This would have been exciting 3 years ago
    Summer Fuu #2 ($0.99 bundle)

    Alt
    Summurd (free) - This would have been cool on the B&J team THAT I DON'T HAVE
    Summer Fuu
    Summer Fuu #2 ($0.99 bundle) - What the what.

    Pulling summer Fuu dupes on both accounts for $0.99 rolls seems like a pretty clear signal to stop spending any money at all on this game.

    And I just noticed that half my rolls were Fuu. X|

    10/1 fest pulls

    Main
    Nope.

    Alt
    Astaroth

    I'm cool with this, especially since I pulled Asty on my main during the most recent super fest (but still haven't evolved her to her Revo form yet, d'oh!).

    Slightly distracted by Dragalia Lost.

    Step 2: Lead with Diara.

    Bonus: If GungHo ever fixes/buffs the Four Nobles, I'm ready to buy a Xiang Mei and get to work!

    Snagged 2 Grato for each of my accounts thanks to a modified Kaede farm build. Going to try to streamline it a little further with this build later today:

    Main: Kaede ! VCarat / Dios / Tengu ! Laila / Dios / Pixel Brachy ! Kaoru

    Alt: Kaede ! Botan / Dios / Tengu ! Wee Jas / flex / Tengu

    Laila and Wee Jas can be any row maker.

    Kaoru can be any top and bottom row maker (including Sado and Vaan).

    Botan can be any +1 or +2 combo active. If you don't have any +1 or +2 combo actives, you can sub Khepri in to the flex spot on P2's team and pass from P1 to P2, pop Khepri's active, pass from P2 to P1, and proceed.

    F1: Carat, Dios, row maker, lazy 625x solve - http://pad.dawnglare.com/?s=Njawu01

    F2: Dios, row maker, lazy 625x solve

    F3: +1 or +2 combo active, Dios, Kaoru, 7c + VDP solve http://pad.dawnglare.com/?s=iJLtOh1

    This dungeon is so easy to farm with the right Kaede team that I'd be tempted to max-skill a Grato if he was a worthwhile lead or sub (and if I had a surplus of King Tans, which I most certainly do not).

    Did some REMDra farming with group A tonight. (My main is in group B and my alt is in group E. I didn't want to wait until midnight to farm again.)

    Alt: 3 BeachDras in 11 runs.

    Main: 1 BeachDra in 14 runs.

    What.

    Up to 6/7 BeachDras on my alt and 4/7 BeachDras on my main.

    I may be done with the REMDra event. Maybe. I'll see where NA stands in the final 24-48 hours of the event.

    Event stats on my alt account are: 9/27/9

    And on my main: 9/32/7

    FOR THE GREATER GOOD

    Oh my word. New B/L Amemina is a beast.

    [​IMG]

    (And yes, that was a killshot.)

    Maybe I should fire up 3P CTA one of these days. :D

    REMDra clear rolls

    Main
    Sima Yi (REMDra clear #1)
    Acubens #2 (REMDra clear #2)
    Summer Navi (IslandDra clear #1)
    Summer Kurone #2 (IslandDra clear #2)

    Alt
    Neptune (REMDra clear #1)
    Sumire #3 (REMDra clear #2)
    Summer Lakshmi (IslandDra clear #1)
    Summer Kurone #2 (IslandDra clear #2)

    Sima Yi is cool, I guess?

    Otherwise, free roll results were pretty much a dumpster fire.

    Final individual totals for PAD NA REMDra campaign (10/14)

    Main: 13/67/14

    Alt: 12/49/15

    Given those numbers and recent pulls (free and otherwise), I think it's safe to say that RNG has not smiled on me lately.

    Maybe things will turn around during the 7* 7-stone REM?

    Speaking of which, the next super fest should be announced any day now, right?

    Cleared Nidhogg Descended 10/16

    [​IMG]

    Teams were:

    Main: Yog, L/x Paimon ! Apolluo , RDQXQ ! ADQXQ, RVenus, BL Amemina

    Alt: RVenus ! LAkechi / RBaal ! Sado / RApollo / NY Yomi / Apoc

    2 SDR and 2 devil killers on Amemina.

    The original plan was to stack actives (Amemina, pass, Apoc, Apollo, Sado, NY Yomi, pass, Apolluo) and 7c + VDP the final floor to guarantee a one-shot kill. Unfortunately, I didn't have Yog up when I knocked I&I below resolve threshold and had to pop Apoc. Fortunately, my alt team took the skill delay, Apolluo (light wisedragon) was up on my alt, the 2 turns of haste on Apolluo's active brought DQXQ's active online, and I had thought ahead to save some dark orbs on the previous turn.

    This was probably my 6th or 7th attempt.

    The experience made me want to shelf PAD for a while. Or at least pull Yog or Amemina on my alt.

    Oof.

    Just cleared A2 with my L/B LVajra x L/B Raijin team solo on my alt.

    [​IMG]

    I had planned to just burn stamina farming stones in tri-monster challenge, but I was running out of time and still had nearly 200 stamina left, so I fired up A2 without much team planning.

    Now let's just hope PAD recognizes the clear after maintenance ends and I switch back to the game. :|

    Massive disappointment.

    EDIT: Linked both accounts to social media accounts and threw 7/10 stones at final rolls for the super fest. Updated the final list and totals above.

    EDIT#2: Added my final 2 rolls after a lapse of reason following my daughter pulling Zela on her account.

    Would any of my best friends on either of my accounts be interested in me putting up rare or niche leads in slots 1 and 2?

    In-game name on my main account is Tek7@PF. Current rank is 675. Rare and niche leads include Enra (already in slot 1), NY Kami, LEscha, VNey, D/D Lajoa, and D/x Typhon.

    IGN on alt is Tek7@PF#2 and rank is 578. Rare and niche leads include Brigid, L/R Ilm, LEscha, NY Yomi, Allatu, and D/x Typhon.
