Py Farming Stats 2/19/15

After going all out farming coin dungeons for the past week or so, I think it’s time for a break. Overall I had very good luck, but to end it I went about 5k stamina before my last drop and it was tough mentally to keep farming. I’ll still revisit farming Flampys in the future — gotta get those Kagutsuchis and Minveras max skilled after all — but I probably won’t go at it as hard as I did this time.

2108 stamina per Py seems quite good as I’ve heard to expect 2 to 3k per Py. That being said, nothing is more demoralizing than to have a Py be the last monster standing with no drops then it drops nothing or even worse a coin chest. I tried to convince myself that the unbelievable fodder EXP, rank EXP and +eggs were reward enough, but in the end one can’t help but dream of Pys.

Sadly the +egg columns don’t fit in the table. I got 186 +eggs drops which comes out to 56.67 stamina per +egg. Considering 5x technicals and Star Vault are about 20 stamina per +egg, farming +eggs here isn’t the worst thing ever.

I used the standard LValk/Athena setup to farm the no dupe dungeons. I swapped Apollo in for my Athena and moved LValk to the leader spot to pair with a friend’s Athena. It actually feels real good to have an extra orb changer instead of a second orb enhance which rarely gets used. Meimei and GZL aren’t great for farming Alt. Hyperion Lava Flow due to the elemental weakness, but they still do enough damage to be useful. I considered using Izanagi as a lead, but LValk was working so well I didn’t feel the need to test the change.

I’ve also been thinking about what color Pys I should farm for. Water and fire seem the most obvious, when fire having better no-fodder targets like the aforementioned Kagutsuchi and Minerva. I’m still dreaming of making water teams though, and while monsters like Karin technically have skill up fodder I’ll certainly use Pys on them to save myself the headache and heartbreak. I guess I’ll just alternate for now.
