    Quick update: I was able to make one sacred key (the one with the 1-turn Fujin active) and 4 cursed keys on each account.

    I cleared the Complete Annihilation dungeon on both accounts with a lot of help from Vergil and delay actives.

    I collected 3 of each skull (Gorfeis and Gorkaos) on both accounts and start farming skill-ups for Gorfeis on my main and skill-ups for Gorkaos on my alt. Once those skill-up campaigns are done, I'll switch to the other skull, finish that skill-up campaign, and evolve any remaining keys with the shards I collected.

    I'm running DatDude's build for farming Gorkaos on my alt:

    [​IMG]

    I'm running Ferule / Yog / Gorfeis x3 + Ferule friend to farm Gorfeis on my main. I just slapped a FUA equip on my Ferule and a sacred key on one of my Gorfeis and make sure I have at least one Ferule active and 3 light orbs above the bottom row to OHKO Gorfeis.

    Apparently the way to get consecutive diamond eggs from a seasonal REM is to chase a gold egg. Duly noted.

    I was chasing Misery on my main so I could run the Gorkaos farming team build I used on my alt. It took 10 pulls, but I got her! 'Twas a nice surprised to pick up 2 Halloween Sonia Gran and a Halloween Durga along the way.

    Meh. Had to try. I was so disappointed that the only Key Heroes I pulled on my alt were 2 Almynea and I kept hoping I could pull an Envy Egg on my main for a Pingu Menuit team.

    Oh well. Spent a lot of stones, got a lot of good pulls. I still wish I could have snagged 2 Euchs and a Gileon instead of 3 Menuits on my main, but RNG gonna RNG.

    Hot rubbish, as is the norm when rolling collab REMs.

    I had planned to roll more in KOF, but with a 82.5% gold egg rate and weak monsters at the lowest rarity, I decided to cut the rolling session short.

    I doubt NA will ever get the My Hero Academia or Demon Slayer collabs and there's little to nothing else on the horizon (except maybe Fate collab?) so maybe I'll roll another time or two before the event ends.

    S-ranked the Halloween score challenge today. Took 7 attempts to perfect the team and clear the threshold, but I did it!

    [​IMG]

    I ran the same team on my alt and got the S rank on my first try there.

    SDKH round-up time!

    So the Key Heroes and 6* eggs I pulled on my main were: 2 Ferule, 3 Menuits, 2 Sloth Eggs, 2 Green Eggs, and 3 Wrath Eggs.

    On my alt, I pulled: 2 Almynea, 2 Envy Eggs, 2 Sloth Eggs, 1 Greed Egg, and 2 Wrath Eggs.

    I managed to skill up 3 Gorfeis and 3 Gorkaos each on both my NA accounts:

    Main

    [​IMG]

    (I only had one skill-up across 3 Gorfeis remaining, so I went ahead and just used a shynpy).

    Alt

    [​IMG]

    And while I don't want to farm anything for a very, very long time now, I, unfortunately, plan to get right back to 625-point farming so I can snag a skeleton tamadra plush before the Halloween event ends.

    Done with Halloween 625-point farming!

    [​IMG]

    Helps that I had 11 gold Halloween widgets stashed away on my mule account from last year. I transferred all 11 to my main and alt and sped the process up quite a bit.

    Now I just need to finish skill-ups on my main and I'm done with the Halloween event. I'm looking forward to trying out HDurga!

    Total pulls: 1/17 crystal eggs on main, 2/16 crystal eggs on alt

    Super disappointed with the results on my main. Only one crystal egg (Mai) and she's arguably the worst of the bunch. I guess this is the balance for rolling HDura and 2 HGran on my main for Halloween?

    Pleased to pull Iori on my alt. He looks like a fantastic sub for Amlynea. Yashiro could be a great self-pairing for Grigory.

    Make that 2/17 crystal eggs on my alt. I pulled once more and got Shermie. At least it's something new?

    Cleared Scathach Descended 11/14/20

    I finally took the plunge and evolved Menoa to her light form on my main so I could pair her with VIdeal on my alt. LOVING the pairing so far.

    Resorted to Akine's active followed by 3 gravity actives (Zera, Nyx, Nyx) to clear Scathach on Annihilation difficulty. No regrets.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Decided to skip the special requirements for additional pluses with the exception of clearing Mythical with Cu Chu as lead on my alt. The 20K pluses from the Hera challenge will suffice, thank you. :)
