The big event this time was PAD Island which means I finally have a Summer Claire.
Since Last Update
I decided to incinerate some stones in the off chance of getting Summer Pandora and out popped the wrong 7-star. Sigh. This REM was particularly bad to roll in since there’s absolutely no help outside Pandora, but sometimes a man just has to roll for cuteness. Now it’s time to start saving up rolls for the Halloween REM which should hit in a couple of months. With Meimei now crossed off the list, a common speculation is that Karin will finally make her seasonal appearance then; if she gets a dark-main form, I’d actually consider IAPing on this account, especially if her art is in the style of her b/d form.
On a related note, I’m now back up to about 100k MP. If I ever get back to 300k (or is the target 500k now?), I still don’t know if I’d actually buy anything. I mean, I guess Xin Hua is neat, but there’s no way I can run her as a leader nor is she particularly useful as a sub for me, especially when compared to Yomi Dragon. However, considering that they’re willing to sell Myr-level cards at 500k, now’s the time to be stingy with MP (and stop spending it on evo materials…). The most likely candidate for a 500k dark card would be Halloween; there’s no way I’m raising another 400k before then, but I should try to be prepared as possible, anyways.
So I actually bought Claire before I did my actual rolls which was pretty stupid. Sure, it’d be a miracle to roll her in three tries, but I still should’ve waited to buy her until after. Then again, I might’ve just bought her anyways to get both forms. She has an unfortunate overlap with Castor. If there ever came a point where I had to choose between the two, I’d obviously choose Claire, but even if you ignored the cute factor I’d still probably choose her. Castor is certainly a great sub, but I already have a god killer on Haku and hazard orb clearing + haste with Satsuki. His remaining strengths would be 2x SBR and 2x skill boost, but for the most part I can live without that. At least for now, machine killer is so rare in dark that any card would be hard pressed to beat Claire in value.
Outside that, I really didn’t do anything. I just haven’t felt like playing this account much lately, in large part due to my NA main account taking up all my free time farming MP (gotta save up for Summer Myr), but also because doing anything with the 20-box restriction is so arduous. I could always drop the restriction, but to be honest I’m pretty happy with how much (or how little) time I invest in this account; it’s a novelty and I want it to remain that way as long as it’s fun.
Skill Up Management
Skill Up Progress
- Orochi: done
- Facet: 3/5
- Zaerog: 6/10
- Claire: 1/6
- 2 Badpy in mail (from PAD Radar)
- 1 random Py dungeon in mail
- 47 rainbow stones in PAD Radar (almost 5 Pys)
- Beat Star Justice in Challenge Descended for another Badpy
I’m pretty close to finishing both Facet and Zaerog, but as long as I don’t have an urgent need for them, I’ll continue to wait for stream and Challenge rewards to finish them off.
Farming Claire skill ups in the Dungeon of Darkness is pure hell without a button team, but since it’s so stamina efficient it’s hard to complain. I need to get a few more done before Star Justice and his Badpy reward rotates out; Claire’s new machine killer being one of the few ways my teams can deal enough damage to beat that dungeon.
