    Rolled one more time on my alt yesterday. Got Glavenus.

    /shrug

    I'll probably evolve him to the equip assist form. I don't expect I'd get much use out of Glavenus as a sub when I have better red FUA options.

    EDIT: Updated MH REM results post.

    Rolled One Last Time(TM) on my main. Got Nergigante. Updated my MH REM results post.

    Of all the 7* pulls (Akantor, Amatsu, Diablos, Yama Tsukami, Zinogre, Nergigate, and Fatalis), I think Nergigante is the one I would want the least.

    Nevertheless, it's a 7* pull and I'll take it!

    ...I just have no idea how I'm going to put it to use. ^^;;

    On a related note, I have to wonder if the published rates for Rathian are a lie. 13 pulls on my main and 11 pulls on my alt and not a single Rathian.

    :/

    Yesterday was day 1,850 on my main and 1,666 on my alt!

    I had planned to put together a day 1,850 box tour for my main, but didn't have time.

    Oh well. Maybe day 1,900?

    So I assembled a new Madoo team for Star Treasure on my alt last night and I was wondering why I was struggling with the dungeon (2/3 runs ended in failure).

    Then I remembered that I evolved Madoo to her R/R form some time between January (when I posted the teams quoted above) and today.

    Guess I'll need to figure out a new Star Treasure farming team for my alt. :(

    PAD Academy medal swipe farming build

    Main: Scheat / mgoe ! Azazel / LVaj ! Grimmjow / mgoe ! Azazel / MGoe ! Azazel

    Alt: Madoo / MGoe / MGoe ! Azazel / mgoe ! Azazel / Whaledor ! Kaoru

    Azazel can be any pseudo SDR.

    LVaj ! Grimmjow can be any laser or nuke.

    No assist required on Whaledor. Tengu might work, too, but count SBs.

    F1 (A): mgoe, swipe
    F2 (B): MGoe, swipe
    F2 (A): Grimmjow
    F3 (A): mgoe, swipe
    F4 (B): MGoe, swipe
    F5 (A): MGoe, swipe
    F6 (B): mgoe, swipe

    This is more for my own reference, but if it helps you, great!

    Here's the improved build:

    PAD Academy medal swipe farming build

    Main: Scheat / mgoe ! Azazel / Lmgoe ! Azazel / MGoe ! Azazel / Horus

    Alt: Madoo / MGoe / Whaledor ! Mel / MGoe ! Azazel / mgoe ! Azazel

    Azazel can be any pseudo SDR.

    Horus is there for the 3 SB, but may not be necessary.

    F1 (A): mgoe, swipe
    F2 (B): MGoe, Mel, swipe
    F3 (A): mgoe, swipe
    F4 (B): MGoe, swipe
    F5 (A): MGoe, swipe
    F6 (B): mgoe, swipe

    I'm done farming PAD Academy, but maybe this can help someone else.

    If it wasn't for the time debuff at the start of the dungeon, I could probably do this:

    Shaman King collab REM results 5/27/19

    Main


    Ryunosuke (free)
    Lyserg ($0.99 bundle)
    Marco
    Lyserg #2
    Joco
    Joco #2
    Joco #3
    Ryunosuke #2 (quest reward)


    Alt

    Lyserg (free)
    Lyserg #2 ($0.99 bundle)
    Lyserg #3
    Marco
    Anna
    Joco
    Horohoro
    Joco #2 (quest reward)

    Summary: Aside from pulling Anna on my alt (my ONE diamond egg in SIXTEEN rolls), Shaman King collab is a huge disappointment for me. 60 stones and $1.98 across 2 accounts and I don't have much of significant value to show for it.

    Bought the Shaman King $0.99 bundle on both my main and my alt today.

    Total IAP as of 5/27/19: $69.69 USD

    Thread title updated accordingly.

    Considering trading for Hao on my main. Here's the eligible fodder:

    DMeta #3
    Kanna #2
    Scheat #3
    Scheat #4
    Escha #3
    Escha #4
    Escha #5
    Kami #2
    Amemina #3
    Amemina #4

    I love rainbow teams and I LOATHE VDP floors, so I'm very, very tempted to trade.

    My alt is another matter entirely:

    Baldin #2
    Escha #2
    Kaede #3
    Kaede #4
    Ilm #2
    Typhon #2
    Aten #2

    I might throw 1-2 more rolls at the collab, which would still leave me with 200 stones on each account. I could still spend 150 stones on 15 GungHo Collab rolls when it (finally) returns to NA.

    Finally cleared Gleaming Sky's Contest on both accounts.

    Had to resort to B&J with Kuro loop on my main.

    Cleared it with a Ciel team on my alt after reading @sgt502's reddit thread and 4-5 failed attempts.

    Oy. What a horrid dungeon. Think I might just flush stamina on Shaman King widget farming and skill-ups the next few days and put the memory of Gleaming Sky behind me.

    EDIT: Final teams were:

    Main: B&J ! Helen equip / HMyne ! Kuro / Kuro / Scheat ! Weld equip / I&I

    Alt: Ciel / LCotton ! Lugh / Ciel Hunter ! VCarat / Moogle ! Astraea / Pralinae ! Tachibana

    GungHo Collab REM results 5/31/19

    Main


    GH Artemis
    Uriel #7
    Raizer
    Gronia #4
    Set #3
    Andromeda #4
    Raizer #2
    Blonia #2
    Rex
    Gremory
    Zeta
    Sakuya #2
    Mercury
    Noir
    Sakuya #3
    Joker
    Freyr
    Nut #2

    Alt

    AA Luci #4
    Ralg
    Elena
    Andromeda #4
    Zela #5
    Mercury
    Orage
    GH Belial
    Yamato #2
    Noir
    Freyr #3
    Raizer
    Raph #3
    Perseus #2
    Gremory #5
    GH Belial #2
    Luna
    Blonia #3

    Summary: 36 pulls across 2 accounts and I managed to get EVERY SINGLE GH COLLAB 7* EXCEPT Karin, which is the monster I wanted most. T_T

    EDIT: Oops, I forgot about dark Reeche. (How could I? I love rainbow leads!) So every 7* collab pull except Karin and DReeche.

    /sigh

    Can't be too disappointed after pulling Zeta on my main and Raizer on both accounts, but was still really hoping that throwing 180 stones at the REM on each account would have scored me at least one Karin. I was so ready to drop a truck with my L-attack SA Myr on my main. :/

    Hey, I guess Rex on my main and Luna on my alt are nice consolation prizes. Hera orbs are super cute. <3

    Still haven't traded for Hao, but I'm SO tempted to trade for him on my main.

    I really wish we knew what Mega Escha, Kanna, Kami, and Amemina were going to look like. X|

    Cleared Ultimate Arena - Grotesque Being (Arena 5) 6/9/19

    HUZZAH!

    I think this was attempt #5.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Team was: DZeta ! Rathian equip / Mel ! Agidyne equip / Reeche ! Reeche / PA Uruka ! AFamiel / BCotton ! Narcacuga equip

    [​IMG]

    Badge was TE+.

    Notable spawns were Bigfoot, Manticore, Hamal, Nyx, Cthulhu, and Cthugha.

    A HUGE thanks to @Kreisler for his FANTASTIC DZeta (level 108, 3 devil killer latents, VDP SA, Sagat equip assist) friend lead.

    Cleared Scheherazade Descended - Annihilation 6/12/19

    NEVER. AGAIN.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Now that I've cleared this trainwreck of a dungeon, I plan to clear AA2 and seriously scale back my play time for the foreseeable future.

    Teams were:

    Main: Raizer ! Rathian equip / Gronia ! Gronia / HVerd / Eir / Zela

    Alt: Raizer ! Sasuke equip / GNey ! Zela / Zela ! Zela / Saber ! Gammoth equip / Eir

    No cloud resist.

    No blind resist.

    No tape resist.

    What a horrid dungeon. Scheherazade represents everything wrong with current trends in PAD dungeon design (even though the "storytelling" aspect was neat).

    Stones spent on stamina refreshes: 2 on main, 1 on alt.
