Mechdragons 5x Technical +Egg Drops 4/27/15

I’ve grown tired of farming FT4 for +eggs, so I decided to shake things up a bit by farming Mechdragons this past Monday:

Mechdragons’ Massive Fortress – Any Floor (1.5x Drop/5x +Eggs)
Date Runs Stamina Stones +Eggs Drop / Run Stam / +Egg
4/27/2015 42 2100 7 70 1.67 30.00

Considering I usually get around 20 stamina per +egg in FT4, Mechdragons is a serious downgrade. Until you consider the better rank experience, better exp fodder and time saved doing the runs, that is. Besides the upfront stamina cost, the only other downside I see is actually having to pay attention while farming.

We all knew FT4 was better for stamina per +egg, but how much better is farming Mechdragons on 1.5x Mondays as opposed to any other day?

Mechdragons’ Massive Fortress – Any Floor (5x +Eggs)
Date Runs Stamina Stones +Eggs Drop / Run Stam / +Egg
3/21/2015 21 1050 4 32 1.52 32.81
3/22/2015 38 1900 8 54 1.42 35.19
3/28/2015 36 1800 7 44 1.22 40.91
3/29/2015 54 2700 10 83 1.54 32.53
3/31/2015 5 250 0 5 1.00 50.00
4/5/2015 11 550 1 10 0.91 55.00
Total 95 4750 19 130 1.37 36.54

Since you usually get 8 drops from Mechdragons anyways the 1.5x doesn’t have as much of an affect as one might expect. However, considering I don’t have much of a sample size either way the actual disparity could be much different than these numbers suggest.

Either way, I’ll be ramping up my Star Vault speedfarming team and I’ll hopefully be able to limit most of my +egg farming there. I really need NA to get the best friend system update before that becomes a reality, though. 3x +egg drops to normal dungeons would be a boon, too, as I hear you can get some great +egg rates from there as well.
