Py Farming Stats 6/1-6/15

This rotation technically isn’t done yet, but I plan on farming +eggs in whatever time I play today.

I was hoping for more than 6 Pys this rotation, but I’m certainly not complaing since it could’ve gone much worse. I saw fewer than expected Pys; 731 stamina per sighting as opposed to 484 all time. On the other hand, I had a better drop rate per sighting, getting 30% opposed to the normal 24%. Either way, I’ve confirmed my hatred of Py farming. I’m somewhat glad the next two coin rotations will feature the horrendous alt. technicals. I’ll likely save up coins next rotation and grind Mechdragon Rush the following. That should give me time to put together a decent farming team as well.

I also got 286 +eggs this run, coming in at a very generous 51.1 stamina per +egg. Getting almost another +297 through this is a nice bonus.

Meimei System – Woodpy 11 of 16

This one took about 4000 stamina to get. I think I’m done farming Woodpys for now. It feels strange to say it, but the stress from wondering when the next drop is going to come is too much for me to take. I’ll pin my hopes on getting the rest from Challenge Dungeon rewards.

The other option is to wait until the wood Spirit Jewel is updated to skill up Awoken Meimei. This would be the sane option, potentially saving some Pys, but it took JP over a month to get that change; who knows how long it will be until NA gets it. Speaking of updates, it also took JP two weeks between Awoken Meimei’s release to her active being upgraded to a 9-turn cooldown. Considering these updates, I think there will be plenty of time to get the rest of the Pys from Challenge Dungeons, if we get one every event from now on.

Meimei System – Woodpys 7-9 of 16

Now I feel stupid for bitching and moaning so much.

Actually, no I don’t. Fuck you GungHo and fuck your stupid trumpet tooting pieces of shit.

…Don’t hurt me.


On a more serious note, I was considering taking a short break from hardcore Py farming (read the above again if you need the reason why), but I’m still aiming to hit rank 600 and alt. coins are still the best place to grind considering I still need Pys. I’m thinking I’ll do maybe two hours-worth on weekdays and maybe like 4 on weekends. Still a lot of grinding, but now that I have a pretty good start to my Py farming I don’t feel like I have to keep going at it until I’m about to lose my mind.

Py Farming Stats 5/16-5/31

I started farming alt. coin dungeons in hopes of reaching rank 600 quicker, but a few days ago I started work on my Meimei System so my grinding now has a greater purpose.

My Py drop rate started off really well, but I ended this coin dungeon rotation on a 4k stamina drought. This is obviously the work of the Desire Sensor as it’s no coincidence the slump started after I started farming for Meimei skill ups in earnest. This pretty much sums up why I hate farming Pys; you can only realistically expect to get one every 100 runs or so, but with the chance being so low, with even slight variance you can easily hit a 200+ run drought.

I had 145 +eggs drop during this farming run, coming in a 67.82 stamina per +egg. A nice bonus.

I’ll keep farming, but I know it will be hard to keep my sanity in the long run. I’ll definitely be farming jewels to supplement my Woodpys. I’ll likely continue the grind through the next rotation, but once we get the alt. technicals I’ll likely shift to Wood Jewels full time.

Overall, I’ve run alt. coin dungeons 1207 times, seen 67 Pys and have had 15 drop which is 1832.9 stamina per Py. I’ve also had 463 +eggs drop which is 59.39 stamina per.

A bit late, but I wanted to share my py farming stats. Suffice to say, I was very lucky this time around.

99 +eggs also dropped coming in at 53.82 stamina per egg. This set of alt. normal coin dungeons continues to be the best bang for stamina in the game by far.

My py count is looking pretty good right now so I don’t really intend to farm much more, especially since the best set of coin dungeons rotated out last week. I might farm this set again when it comes back in about 5 weeks.

It’s just so satisfying when one of these fuckers drops…
