    I bought the $4.99 bargain set on 12/13 and rolled Cronus #2 from that REM.

    I then bought the Christmas REM bundle today for $0.99.

    That brings my total IAP to $49.77.

    I've updated the thread with the new total IAP amount.

    Cleared Ultimate Survey Rush 12/20/18

    Roots x Rikuu shines once again.

    [​IMG]

    Teams were:

    Main: Roots / RagDra / OdinDra / Tardis ! Bacches / Enra ! VCarat

    Alt: Rikuu ! VCarat / Hexazeon / Droid Dragon ! Trojan Horse / OdinDra / RagDra

    Just realized that, with the exception of the VCarat assist on Rikuu, my alt's team is 100% farmable. :O

    Current Time-Shift Black Dragon Caller, Sonia Tournament rankings 12/22/18

    Main: 29.4% with 103,804 points

    Alt: 29.6% with 103,508 points

    I think it's safe to say both those scores will drop below 30% before the end of the event, but I spent a full stamina bar on each account and this was the best I could do. :/

    I may bang my head against this ranking a few more times in hopes of at least landing in the mid-20s range and scoring another super snow globe dragon. At least this fixed team is a Madoo team. That Keela fixed team ranking dungeon was horrid.

    I think I can hang up any hope of scoring a Dark Sonia of my own unless she comes to the NA MP store like she came to the JP MP store last July.

    The good news: I scored 110,554 points, which lands at 24.3%.

    The bad news: I got that score on my daughter's account.

    Okay, I think I need to be done with this ranking dungeon. I don't need a R/D/H full board change assist badly enough to spend stones or sacrifice my mental health. :|

    Last-but-for-real-this-time-last pulls in super fest part 2 12/23/18

    Alt

    Mori #2


    Main

    Zela

    SO VERY HYPED to pull Zela on my main. Got 3 on my alt and this is the first on my main. Might be time to throw some Fujin assists on a team and go take a crack at A3.

    Not even mad about Mori #2, but now I'm regretting converting my first Mori from B/B to Awoken. I also can't help but with Mori #2 had been DMeta or Haku or Amemina or--okay, I'm a little upset.

    But landing Zela on my main more than makes up for it. :)

    Snagged 2 Amnel this morning!

    [​IMG]

    Now I have one to keep and one to evolve Xiu Min if and when I ever decide to spend the MP (though I probably won't since Four Nobles ults were disappointing).

    Psych!

    Snuck in 2 more rolls today.

    Rules-of-time-and-space-demand-that-these-are-the-last pulls in super fest part 2 12/25/18

    Main

    Lugh #2

    Alt
    AA Luci

    Yep. Just pulled one of the top-tier subs on the account where I have 0 DMeta and pulled a fifth Fujin active (Fujin, Gilgamesh, Reeche, Lugh, Lugh #2) on the account with 3 DMeta.

    Whatever, dude. I probably would have just pulled dupes in Heroine REM anyway.

    Waiting for the day I pull the dark lead that pulls all those amazing dark subs on my alt together in an elite fighting force.

    Took Orya for a spin in Endless this morning.

    [​IMG]

    Final board was (IIRC), Ace Horus + Rodin + Horus + VCarat assist on Enra and VDP match with some skyfalls to put me around 9-10 combos.

    Orya is already level 101 with FUA SA. Planning to max-skill her today since I doubt I'll roll again in the Heroine REM. Would LOVE to pull Planar for my DMeta team, but the odds are stacked against me. There's a 1 in 50 chance of rolling Planar and 44.64% odds of pulling a dupe (with 1 Orya, 2 Elgenubi, 2 Runelis, 2 Mel, 1 Mito, and 3 Sheena in my box).

    EDIT: Odds are pulling a dupe are not as high on my alt: 39.64% with 1 Navi, 1 Kuvia, 3 Mel, 2 Mito, and 2 Momiji.

    DECEMBER QUESTS COMPLETE

    Oh my word, C8 and C9 were horrid.

    Seriously, what masochist decided that C8 would be a fixed team with poison meta?

    Now if they were to give us a fixed team with jammer meta, I'd be good to go. :>

    C9 wasn't too rough except for the boss floor, which was an awful grind. Bringing a second delay made all the difference. Rikuu x Rikuu ftw!

    Cleared Valten again last night so I could evolve HMyne on my alt, but I cleared the dungeon with B&J x Blodin this time:

    [​IMG]

    If my math is correct, Mega Baldin did 610,734,330 damage against Valten to OHKO him.

    /flex

    In other news, I made a new team, a bad pun, and a post on the PAD sub-reddit.

    [​IMG]

    Then I struggled with combo shields in Endless, modified the team, and OHKO'd Kali:

    [​IMG]

    Looking at farm builds that require multiple MGoe and tempted to regret spending 15 rainbowpys on HMyne, but I expect she'll be useful for other teams (say, Anubis and Rikuu?), so I'm not upset. At the moment.

    LET THE SNOW GLOBE FARMING BEGIN

    And here's the plan:

    Source: https://www.reddit.com/r/PuzzleAndD...on_random_vinnies_superultimate_machine_rush/

    I should be able to have team B ready on my alt by the time SUMR rolls back around, but I doubt I can have it ready tonight.

    Wanted to score between 30% and 40% in the current ranking dungeon because I don't need a THIRD Rikuu on my accounts.

    Nailed it on my main.

    [​IMG]

    Scored too high on my alt. :(

    [​IMG]

    Would be fun to get a Rikuu on my daughter's account, but she doesn't have Verse and she doesn't play enough to warrant the hassle of building one for her. The good news is that she does like 7x6 boards and she has Uruka (who pairs very well with Rikuu).

    And with that, I think I'm done with the anniversary quests. I've heard floors 41-50 are brutal.
