    For the record, I haven't been able to clear Kurogane either, including with Gronia. But regardless, congrats on the pulls, especially the Gronia! My Gronia team's so tanky it's unbelievable; with Nees on the team I pass 100k HP! I do sometimes wish its damage was higher, but packing a burst inherit and making 7+ combos does help a lot (especially if you are able to fit an L-block for Gronia in there somewhere). And Ragnarok Dragon with a God Killer SA and God Killer latents blows through God-type enemies like a blowtorch through tissue paper.

    I ended up starting the dungeon with Tardis x Diablos last night, choosing Persona 5 over PAD last night (no regrets!), and picked PAD back up this morning only to realize that Tardis x Diablos doesn't hit nearly as hard as Anublos. I ended up making it as far as Diadem, but kept fumbling combos and ultimately got KO'd.

    /shrug

    I don't mind waiting until Kurogane comes back around before trying again.

    Thanks! :D

    I got dragon killer SA on my RagDra on the first try and I haven't thrown more +eggs at him to re-roll yet.

    As for a burst assist, I can bring Bacches or VCarat. I already have a hypermax Bacches assist on my Tardis for HP (9189 total HP on my Tardis!), so that's covered. I can always put another assist on my Tardis and throw Carat on Cotton if I need a lower burst or 2 floors of burst.

    My current Gronia team is: Gronia / RagDra / OdinDra / GCotton ! non-Awoken Ishida / Tardis ! Bacches

    I also have Revo Kush with an Indra assist and Shazel available for niche uses.

    So I pulled the 6-stone 6* REM again and got...

    Nohime

    I have 3 Nohime on my alt, but this is my first on my main!

    Maybe I should put together some kind of Anubis x Nohime team for grins and giggles in co-op...

    *FWOOSH*

    That was the sound of my sympathy dashing out the back door. :p

    But seriously, I am glad to hear your tale of woe (and 5 Rathios) had a happy ending. :)

    I made a few decisions since my previous post, but I also acquired several new monsters, so I have new decisions to make as well.

    I chose L/B Raijin on my main and discovered she's a super-fun lead.

    I chose D/G Gremory on my alt (because Tardis has physical typing) and she's a powerhouse, but it's hard to go back to heart-cross after falling in love with rainbow leads again.

    On to the updated list!

    Main

    Acubens

    vs.

    Aten

    vs.

    Fenrir Viz

    vs.

    Rodin #2 (Rodin #1 is R/D)

    vs.

    Eschamali

    vs.


    Alt

    Australis

    vs.

    Aten

    vs.

    Fenrir

    vs.

    Eschamali

    vs.

    Gremory #2 (Gremory #1 is D/G)

    vs.

    Castor (I have ACastor on my main)

    vs. vs

    Ilm (x2!)

    vs.

    Sarasvati #2 (Saras #1 is UUEvo)

    vs.


    So I feel like popular opinion would push for me to make both Eschas the D/x form with double 7c awakenings, but I find myself leaning toward the D/L form. 144x ATK for a dark 5o1e match could be fun, especially with Saito carrying an Ulquiorra assist on my main. Both accounts have several strong dark subs with god typing AND D/L Escha could make an amazing sub for Lajoa.

    Rapid fire updates!

    I snuck in some final rolls during the 6-stone 6* REM:

    Alt
    Ama #4

    Main
    Nohime
    Yang Guifei
    Isis #2

    Gotta give credit to @Kreisler for recommending Nohime as an assist for Rikku. That 75% shield + R/G/B/D/heal full board change has saved my bacon a few times already.

    I guess I'll hope that the Legends series monsters (Napoleon, Barbarossa, Robin Hood, Yang Guifei, and Nobunaga) get strong ults? Not sure what else to do with Yang Guifei right now.

    I may post a final list of 6-stone REM pulls soon. Maybe.

    I cleared Hexazeon on all difficulties, cleared Hexa AGAIN on Myth+ because of an infuriating glitch, then went on to clear Annihilation 3 more times to collect Hexa and the remaining evo materials. I finished the Hexa quest on Friday (5/4) afternoon. RNG was very kind.

    I cleared Legato twice yesterday, once with Blonia teams in co-op and once solo on my main with my Gronia team. My Gronia team is a powerhouse and I opted to stall out Legato's 6c shield rather than risk popping my burst active and flubbing the board. It's an adjustment taking a step down in terms of damage output, but that HP and recovery is just absurd.

    I'm hoping to post screenshots soon, but I'm not going to guarantee anything since I'm on call this week. :|

    Yesterday, I evolved my Eschas on both accounts to D/L form because I didn't see where I could use a dark sub with double 7c awakenings.

    Today, Revo Okuni arrives in NA.

    -_-

    Oh well. D/L Escha still looks like an amazing sub for Lajoa and a solid replacement for Nobunaga and dual D/L Escha leads could be fun.

    Sweet. Both of my accounts got their first Liu Bei today. I'll notify you in 20 years when I complete my zeus dios system.

    At least you'll have King Tans to make it a far less painful process. I built my Dios army before King Tans were added to the game.
