    I was one Monster Hunter evo material short of being able to build trade fodder for Athena Hunter (I never did clear out my box from the last rerun), so I dropped 400K on both accounts and traded for her.

    I don't know why I did. But I did.

    I blame @sgt502 for posting that cool video with an Athena Hunter team clearing AA. :>

    EDIT: And here's the video for the curious:

    Cleared Zeus Challenge on both accounts this morning.

    Wow, powercreep has come a long way. Top floor still took me a few tries with a ZKitty team, but my DKarin A5 team made short work of the dungeon.

    Finished building a light Shelling Ford on my third NA account (which I use mostly for box space) and setting it in a best friend slot to pair with my NA main account's Lightning.

    I'm rather pleased with the results.

    [​IMG]

    EDIT: My NA mule account's light Shelling Ford is level 110, has the 7c SA, and has 2 SDR latents and 2 devil killers. He doesn't have an assist at this time (and may not considering that his active skill is crucial for endgame dungeons).

    Cleared Fixed Leader Challenge 3 on both accounts. Huzzah!

    Cleared it on my alt on the first try (going in blind, even!) and on my main on the second try.

    Here were my subs:

    Alt: Anna / DKali / RCotton ! Grodin equip / DD Nohime

    Main: Bastet ! MH triple jammer resist equip / DR Nohime / DKali ! Fujin / RYomi

    (I was lazy and didn't take Fujin assist off my DKali on my main. There's no damage absorb in the dungeon--at least, not that I discovered.)

    Okay, so I came up with a full button farming team for the Halloween dungeon.

    Here it is.

    [​IMG]

    Main: Revo Acala ! Plutus card (#4723) / Awoken Acala ! Imari & Shigaraki (#5267) / Awoken Vajrabhairava ! Unnamed Blade (#4885) / Awoken Vajrabhairava ! Unnamed Blade (#4885) / Awoken Vajrayaksa ! Plutus card

    Alt: Revo Acala ! Over Soul (#5273) / NY Tengu ! doesn't matter / Whaledor ! doesn't matter / Whaledor ! doesn't matter / Tengu ! non-Awoken Amaterasu

    Levels and latents:

    Revo Acala (main): Level 110 and 3 ATK+ latents
    Awoken Acala: Level 99 and R/B/G/L/D resist latents (latents don't matter, just had those latents on her from way back)
    Awoken Vajrabhairava: Level 99 and no latents
    Awoken Vajrabhairava: Level 99 and no latents
    Awoken Vajrayaksa: Level 99 and 3 ATK+ latents
    Revo Acala (alt): Level 110 and 3 ATK+ latents

    Plutus cards are max-skilled. Unnamed Blades are unskilled. Over Soul is skill level 3.

    All button bases have +99 ATK.

    Tengu on my alt has non-Awoken Amaterasu to clear binds in case Vajrayaksa gets bound on F5:

    A: 0c or 1c
    B: Non-Awoken Amaterasu and 0c or 1c
    A: Plutus card

    Cleared Qilin Annihilation with HBastet tonight!

    [​IMG]

    Team was:

    HBastet ! MH triple jammer resist equip (#4154) / Kanan ! Grodin equip / Akane ! Kunpoo equip / Lightning ! DRaizer / DKali ! MH triple blind resist equip (#4143) + HBastet ! Aerith crystal equip

    DRaizer active wasn't needed, but I had it on my Lightning for A5, I didn't want to spend coins or hassle with swapping assists, and it served as pseudo-SDR.

    Team brought full hazard resist (Akine has poison resist+ SA) and cloud resist. No tape resist, but it wasn't an issue.

    I did pop Akine for the killshot for safety. Considering Qilin voids damage over 25M and both HBastets and DKali did more than 25M damage each, it looks like I made the right call!

    Healing was more difficult than expected since HBastet does not have a RCV multiplier, but I managed with heart TPAs and Kanan's heart OE awakenings.

    It's not what I would call an easy clear, but it was a great opportunity to prove HBastet's strength as a lead and a fun team to play.

    ONE 7* pull out of FIFTEEN pulls across 2 accounts.

    How on earth did I roll Zordon 3/6 times on my alt and Blue Ranger 3/9 times on my main?

    Guess I can't complain too much after rolling HBastet on my main last week.

    Hey, at least I got Red Ranger on my alt!

    ...Though that would be more satisfying if I didn't already have a rockin' red-focused rainbow lead in Anna from Shaman King.

    I couldn't remember which pull was my quest clear reward and I'd already deleted the in-game mail with that info, so I just posted my best guess.

    1/15 crystal eggs on my main and 4/14 crystal eggs and orb skin on my alt. I think it's safe to say that my alt fared considerably better this time around. I can't get too upset when I consider that I pulled Ina on my third pull during the recent 7-stone 7th anniversary REM. At least there's still plenty of utility in this collab's gold eggs.

    She was my main in Samurai Shodown IV. Or V. Or both, I forget. It's been years. But she was my most desired pull based on nostalgia. Plus that orb skin is pretty cute. :>
