    Figured out this morning that PAD gave this minnow a whale Mega Typhon team:

    M.Typhon / VNey / Erika / HCotton / DCotton

    And my Erika is set up to slay healers:

    Could also replace the Cottons with Kuro and HMyne ! Kuro for the Kuro loop.

    Could also put an Apocalypse on DCotton.

    I have options!

    Cleared February C10 yesterday with B&J x Madoo in co-op with my alt!

    [​IMG]

    In the interest of full disclosure, I would have been up a creek if not for a single dark skyfall getting me past the combo shield.

    Actives used for the killshot were B&J > M.Scheat > Baldin > A.Horus assist on RCotton

    Teams were:

    Main: B&J ! Helen equip / HMyne ! Kuro / Enra ! A.Horus / M.Scheat ! Weld equip / Sakura

    Alt: Madoo ! Morrigu / M.Baldin ! VCarat / RCotton ! R.Horus / R.Ame / Sakura

    B&J x Madoo and Scheat x Madoo pairings are crazy strong. I feel like this is the era of blue and red in PAD. :)

    Posting my Street Fighter collab farming teams for reference:

    Alt (Player A): Pixel Tyrannos ! A.Freyr / MGoe / MGoe ! Azazel / mgoe ! Azazel / Madoo ! Morrigu

    Main (Player B): Scheat ! Weld equip / Whaledor ! Berserker (#5015) / MGoe ! KOF cartridge equip (#4120) / MGoe ! Azazel / LR Aten

    Essential pieces marked in bold.

    In short, bring 3 full red board changes on player A and 2 full red board changes on player B and enough SB to make it work. If the gravity on F2 is going to put you in a bad place for M.Bison's preemptive on F5, bring a heal on team B (I brought a Berserker assist then discovered I didn't need it).

    I led with Scheat instead of a fire row farming lead because she boosts fire monsters and her LS includes a no skyfall clause for faster runs.

    I included Madoo on team A because she has devil killer latents for more damage against Bison. I'm not entirely certain I needed her after I switched team B's lead from Pixel Echidna to Scheat.

    I had meant to post this sooner, but put all things related to farming the SF collab out of my mind as soon as I was done. (Seriously, SO MANY RUNS to trade for Kage. *shudder* And yet I still went back to farm medals for the god killer latent and a few other goodies.)

    Aaand I'm out. I didn't roll heavily in the Monster Hunter collab the last time we had it, so I'm planning to hoard stones and wait for MH to return.

    Cleared Libertas Descended - Annihilation today (3/22/19) on the sixth try.

    [​IMG]

    Teams were:

    Main: Roots ! R.Ganesha / OdinDra / Tardis ! PA Uruka / RagDra / Enra ! A.Horus

    Alt: Rikuu / OdinDra / Orochi / Droid Dragon ! Trojan Horse / RagDra

    Oy. What an awful dungeon.

    I might clear the lower 2 difficulties for the stone or wait for it to cycle back around.

    Lazy DBDC ticket farming guide

    Main: Scheat / MGoe / MGoe / mgoe / Tsubaki

    Alt: Madoo / MGoe / MGoe / mgoe / Whaldor ! Eugeo

    F1-F5: Full red board, swipe
    F6: Madoo, mgoe, Eugeo assist, lazy match 5c https://pad.dawnglare.com/?s=G1BG3U1

    Tsubaki is there for the guaranteed kill on Myne. I had been using MGoe + Horus, but decided to streamline the build even further.

    I switched from Kaede after I got distracted on a few runs, let my phone go to sleep, and returned to find the co-op session broken. With Scheat x Madoo, I'm pretty much set to sweep anything in this dungeon even if things go sideways (or the wifi at work suddenly drops in the middle of a run -_-).

    Cleared Novice and Int March quests. Picking through the Expert quests I want to clear, but planning on skipping C9 and C10. Not worth it for the stone and another rainbow medal.

    In other news, I one-shot Mion through her shield today.

    Yes, I resorted to B&J + Kuro loop for Qilin Annihilation.

    No, I won't apologize.

    The good news is that I zero-stoned Qilin Annihilation on my main using B&J + Kuro loop.

    The bad news is that I couldn't clear Qilin Annihilation, even after spending 3 stones to continue, on my alt.

    I might take another few tries with DMeta teams (I'm thinking DMeta / AD Luci / Aten ! Puu / NY Yomi / Eir), but I need to step away from the game for at least a few hours first.

    It's days like this that remind me why I've considered retiring from PAD several times. I think the most upsetting part is the amount of time I wasted failing this dungeon on my alt today (though it also burns to flush 3 stones and most of a stamina bar and have nothing to show for it). :(

    Only Annihilation difficulties remains on my alt.

    Attempted Qilin Annihilation 3P multiple times on Saturday and Sunday. Failed all attempts.

    Caved and ran it with my main account in a 2-player lobby for a 3P dungeon. Cleared it on the first try running a DMeta team on my alt and a B&J team on my main.

    All said and done, I got 2 Qilin and 1 Seven-Star Mirror on my alt and 2 Seven-Star Mirrors and 1 Qilin on my main.

    Monster Hunter Collab REM results 4/22/19-4/24/19

    Main

    Gammoth (free)
    Narcacuga #2
    Paolumu
    Brachydios
    Gammoth #2
    Paolumu #2
    Rathalos
    Barioth
    Paolumu #3 (quest reward)
    Barioth #2 ($1.99 bundle)
    Brachydios #2
    Tigrex #2
    Nergigante

    Alt
    Gammoth (free)
    Legiana
    Akantor
    Gammoth #2
    Rathalos
    Paolumu
    Diablos
    Valphalk
    Barioth
    Barioth #2 (quest reward)
    Glavenus

    Overall, I'm pleased with the results on my alt and disappointed with the results on my main. I was thrilled to roll Diablos on my alt, but I was hoping to pull Rathian on both accounts (and daydreaming of pulling Fatalis on my alt and Zinogre on my main).

    I'm sitting at 138 stones on my main and 153 stones on my alt. I plan to save my remaining stones for the GungHo collab.

    /sigh

    I really regret that last roll on my main, but I guess a Tigrex assist equip could come in handy...?
