    Cleared SDR (Special Descended Rush) on the second try and SUDR (Super-Ultimate Dragon Rush) on the first try with Tardis teams.

    #TardisOP

    Roots assist on RagDra > Z8 first form. Pew pew.

    Okay, so the easy part is done. Will move on to Norse Rush and Machine Rush later this week.

    And hey, Monster Hunter Collab is back! Rolled Nargacuga on my main and Astalos on my alt for free rolls. Leaning toward skipping rolling with stones, but Paolumu's active makes me want to roll once on each side.

    Got 2 weeks to build a wood male hunter (dat active!) and fire and rainbow female hunters (fire for farming, rainbow for fun).

    If I somehow make it through Chinese Rush and Rikuu Descended, I may have to take a sabbatical before coming back and evolving Rikuu. Or even launching PAD to do anything but collect daily goodies. Seriously, just reading about those 2 dungeons on PadGuide and PDX is stressing me out.

    Cleared Chinese Rush on first attempt with BHunter teams in co-op with my alt. Huzzah!

    Also cleared Rikuu Descended with Kiri cheese. HUZZAH!

    Okay, copy/pasting this for the purpose of recordkeeping:



    Cleared Rikuu on main with team: Kiri ! Sakuya / Zera / LL Zeus / Ra ! Hathor / Diablos fodder + Kiri ! Nyx

    Cleared Rikuu on my alt with team: Kiri ! Sakuya / Zera / LL Zeus / Honjo ! Hathor / Diablos fodder + Kiri ! Nyx

    This is Honjo:



    I zero-stoned the run on my main but spent 2 stones on my alt: the first because Shaitan bound BOTH MY LEADS, SERIOUSLY WHAT ARE THE ODDS and I don't have the bind immune badge on my alt and the second because I couldn't quite heal all the way back up in time for the last Flame Emperor before clearing Wangren on F4.

    But it's over! I HAVE CLEARED RIKUU ON BOTH ACCOUNTS, HUZZAH!

    In other news, I evolved Rikuu on my main account today.

    I might take my time evolving him on my alt. I think I need a break from PAD for a few days. :|

    So yesterday I cleared Chinese Rush on Annihilation difficulty on the first try.

    This evening, it took me 3 attempts to clear Chinese Rush on Mythical+.

    Whyyy

    EDIT: Oh well. Got the stone and I can take a break from PAD for a few days if I so choose (though I'll probably cave and give the OSC another shot, this time with a Tardis team).

    Cleared the first killer challenge last night with a Tardis team on my first try.

    #TardisOP

    Got lazy on the last floor. Popped Verd + Bacches assist on Tardis and matched a heart column and 5 more combos. Didn't hit 7 combo threshold, but didn't matter. OHKO'd Ilsix.

    Congrats on getting Rikku! I gave up after trying an entire week to beat the Extreme Norse and Machine Rushes and failing to beat either. That really dampened my enthusiasm for the game.

    I can sympathize. I spent 3 stones to clear Norse Rush and 1 stone to clear Machine Rush. Norse Rush was an awful experience.

    Rikuu is fun to play, but he's rather squishy if you don't activate the LS (which requires covering all attributes and matching 5/6 orb types). I'm still playing around with team builds, but I suspect I'll still be bringing Tardis and Amemina to "serious business" dungeons (at least, for now).

    Decided to pull in the fest yesterday.

    Alt
    :egg5: Maeda Keiji
    :egg5: Beast Rider

    Main
    :egg5: Kagu #2

    Maeda is my first inheritable orb refresh on my alt and should prove handy in co-op.

    Trying to decide between L/D Maeda and Awoken Maeda, but it will probably be late February or March before I have to decide.

    Don't know where I'd use a dupe Kagu, but beats another rider, I guess.

    Cleared Zeus +297 this morning. Took me 3 tries, though.

    Team was: Rikuu ! Gainaut / No.6 ! Shew (orb unlock) / Orochi ! non-Awoken Orochi / OdinDra / RagDra ! Roots + Diablos ! Diablos

    Cleared Zeus +297 on my alt with a Tardis team yesterday. Just had to figure out my assists and stall for active skills before the final floor.

    Team was Tardis ! Momiji / Meimei / Mel / Mito ! Maeda / Verd ! Verd + Tardis ! Bacches

    Used rainbow coverage and Mito's guard break awakening to take down the Mystic Mask on F2.

    Popped Maeda (orb refresh), Bacches, and Meimei for the final board.

    Just cleared Legendary Sea of Trees (Sevenzard) in challenge mode.

    Team was Tardis ! Bacches / Meimei ! Cronus / Mel ! Orochi + Tardis ! Momiji

    Took 3 tries to sort out a plan and execute it, but it's done!

    2/10-2/11 fest results

    Main

    Diadem #3
    Spica #3
    Belial
    GZL #4
    Tachibana
    Akechi #2



    Alt

    Maeda #2
    Dragon Rider
    Nohime
    Nobunaga
    Dragon Rider #2



    Highlights are Tachibana on my main and Nohime on my alt.

    Tachibana is already hypermax. Nohime is level 95, max-skilled, and fully awoken.

    Huzzah!

    Down to 52 stones on my alt and 50 on my main.

    Planning on posting screenshots of Tachibana x Sakuya teams in action soon.

    In related news, I replaced Enra with Tachibana for my slot 1 lead on my main (in part so she's always accessible to my alt, who has a pretty rockin' Sakuya team).

    EDIT: Forgot I rolled a third Diadem before anything else on my main. Updated the list of rolls.

    Updated the thread title since I recently dropped $0.99 on the 5-stone bundle.

    NY REM pulls 2/12

    Main

    NY Tengu #2
    NY Hanzo
    NY Horus
    NY Ame no Uzume
    NY Hanzo #2

    (NY Ame not yet added to PDX)


    Alt

    NY Hanzo #2
    NY Yomi
    NY Leilan
    NY Mitsuki



    Whyyy did I pull so many times.

    Excited to pull NY Yomi, but wish I'd pulled her on my main.

    Was so excited to pull a crystal egg from a REM on my main, but then it was NY Horus. :feelsbadman:

    I love the art for NY Leilan, but it's hard to imagine a team where I'd include her.

    NY Ame could be interesting with dual multi-boot awakenings.

    /me sings "Regrets, I've had a few~"

    So I'm thinking of running a 7c-focused BHunter team on my alt for grins and giggles:

    BHunter / Yuna / split ult DKali / NY Yomi / 7c Escha

    Also toying around with theory teams for NY Yomi:

    NY Yomi / LR Hathor / LEscha / FUA Paimon / Yuna

    Relevant assists include Ars Nova, Newleywed Akechi, and Benimaru (KOF collab).

    Could be fun!
