    Came SO close to clearing Sevenzard in challenge mode on my alt with a similar team. Got Sevenzard down to about 25% but didn't have the orbs to finish him off. If only I didn't have to burn my Tethys assist to finish off Cerberus Rider and heal up for Sevenzard's preemptive, I would have been able to pop the Bacches active and OHKO Sevenzard through his shield.

    Oh well. Could always try again later.

    T-minus 34 minutes to maintenance!

    Box count:

    1355/1350 on alt

    1492/1500 on main

    EDIT: Make that 1495/1500 on main

    At this point I'm starting to view Kiri as a viable alternative.

    It just takes such an agonizingly long time to clear anything using Kiri, though. :/

    Turning off your brain helps.

    14.1 update is live!

    New box space count:

    1176/1350 on alt

    1334/1500 on main

    179 box space reclaimed on alt, 158 reclaimed on my main

    Huzzah!

    Unfortunately, that's very difficult for me to do. :/

    Oof. Valk +297 wasn't easy, but I cleared it after a few failed attempts on both accounts.

    Ended up clearing it with Rikuu on both accounts. Brought a freshly +297'd B/D Sherias for attacker and healer killers on my alt. Brought Linthia for the low CD fullboard change on my main. (Single bombs are harsh on rainbow teams!)

    Kurogane is back up today, but I don't know if I have the time or mental energy to try to tackle this cancerous dungeon this afternoon or evening.

    Still debating whether I want to try this again or not. :|

    But I don't have a better plan. (Yet.)

    I decided to use 1 stone on my alt after 3 unsuccessful tries. I got her down to 5% health and she executed me.

    Ouch. Sorry to hear that. Most of the +297 dungeons had little to no margin for error or even substitutions outside of a small handful of subs.

    Cleared Manticore Legend-Plus with Rikuu teams in co-op. Replaced Orochi with B/D Sherias on my alt for the devil killer and guard break. Enra was the only monster on either team to benefit from the boost for devil types, but if I could only pick one sub to boost, she would be it.

    I'm not proud of this, but the deed is done.

    Legendary Skyrealm solo clear: COMPLETE

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Team was: Kiri / Orpharion ! VKarin / Ra ! Kim Kaphwan (+2 combo active) / Whaledor ! Hermes / Grodin + Kiri

    My Kiri on my alt has 5 SDR, which proved essential for this run.

    The worst part was killing the blue mask on the first floor.

    Killing Valten took somewhere around 135 turns. I flubbed the time of the screenshot, so I didn't get an exact count.

    I'm not entirely sure that a crystal mask and a rainbowpy were worth all those failed attempts and all that time and effort. X|

    Just showed my older daughter the LEGENDARY video of Reco clearing white snek:



    "That's ridiculous!" she said.

    And I agreed.

    Seriously, that last solve is just superhuman.

    Put together near-ideal Verse teams for Rikuu ranking dungeons.

    Spent 4 bubpys on an Undine. Spent 2 rainbowpys and 1 bubpy on an unevolved Nene on my alt. Spent millions of coins on both accounts shuffling assists around.

    Hit 11.3% on my main last night. Slipped to 11.4% as of this morning.

    Hit 9.8% on my alt this morning. Slipped to 9.9% in the last hour.

    I'm confident I'll land in the top 16% on both accounts, but I was hoping for my very first crown. I don't think it's worth banging my head against RNG (and my own player skill issues on F6) to keep pushing for a crown, especially since my wife and I took a week off work to work on our house this week. Priorities!

    And I'm regretting spending those pys. :'(

    Speaking of Ideal teams, I ended up using L Ideal x Navi. It's pretty unconventional, but I wasn't willing to spend millions of coins and my Whaledor is at skill level one. And I did fairly well. My main is at 10.5% and my alt is at 18.1%

    10.5% is fantastic! I had to cheese my way to my scores. :)

    Speaking of which, I was able to bump up to 9.6% on both accounts. And that's after spending a stone for stamina refresh on my main.

    I just don't think a crown is in the cards. :/

    I don't feel like chasing a crown just yet; I just want the Rikuu. 9.6 is the best result I've seen so far.
