I wanted to make the last FT4 run the last ever, but with my one-year anniversary coming up, I wanted to finish off a full page of 297s. Yay for more arbitrary goals.

This was by far the best run I’ve ever had. Sadly, that doesn’t even compare to 3x normals, but I’ll take it. What am I going to use all these 297s for? No clue. I’m hoping the Summer REM will help decide that for me, but we’ll see about that.

I followed up my worst drop rate ever with my best ever. The funny thing is that this ridiculously good run barely made a dent in my overall drop or stamina rate numbers.

As I stated in my Mechdragons post, I decided to push +egg farming to hypermax my Meimei System, hopefully on the day it’s released. The Meimeis will almost certainly still have the crappy version of their active skill, but I think it’ll be fulfilling to be one of the few on NA to have such a thing day 1.

I currently have four free +297s and I can feed my Athena away if need be, bringing me to five. I need six total for Bastet, Zuoh and four Meimeis, so I only need to farm up one more. Assuming the awoken Egyptians are released July 10th, the earliest Awoken Meimei would hit NA is July 24th. That’s likely two Star Vaults and one full-day 5x Monday between now and then. That should be more than enough opportunity and if it’s not, that’s also good because it means GungHo is getting their act together and releasing things faster than expected (or it could be very bad since they fucked over our +egg farming, but I don’t want to think too much about that).

As far as what I want to +egg after that, I think I want to hypermax school Athena, especially if I feed my light one away. After that, I’ll probably resume developing my water box, plusing key water subs for Lakshmi, Sarasvati and eventually school Isis (yeah, I got one). From school Isis, I’m hoping to branch into light combos via LKali and maybe have a Ra team someday. That’s a hell of a lot of pluses though, and I can only expect my plans will change before then, but that’s the vision for now.

My worst drop rate ever. It all evens out in the end, I guess.

I now have three +297s sitting unused in my box, 4 if you count my hypermax Drawn Joker that was always destined to be fed away. One is for Awoken Bastet, of course, but I’m not sure what do with the other three. I’m thinking one for wood, one for water and the last for Vritra for Star Vault farming. I also have the 106 ATK eggs needed for Lu Bu and the second Vritra to finish off the Star Vault team. I’m most likely going to pull the trigger as I’m ahead on ATK eggs (I have about 100 more ATK eggs than RCV at this point).

Not a great run, but I’ve learned to be satisfied with any drop rate per run over 50%. These spoils helped complete another +297, which isn’t claimed yet. I’m waffling on what to give it to; I want to keep devoting +eggs to water, but Ceres is also a tempting target.

One stat I keep track of, but don’t post here are Dub-topalit and King Metal Dragon drops. For those curious:

Forbidden Tower – Door of Light and Shadow (1.5x Drop/5x +Eggs)
3480 Runs, 41760 Stamina
Name Drops Drop% / Run Stam / Drop
Dub-topalit 161 4.63% 259.38
King Metal 161 4.63% 259.38

For those mainly looking for Dub-topalits, you’re better served farming elsewhere. While not conclusive, it is likely that Dub-topalits and King Metals have the same, or at least similar, drop rates.

While not as good as my previous run, this was a pretty nice drop rate. I’m expecting Star Vault to hit NA this week to finish off another +297, barring that I’ll finish it off the next 5x Monday. This +297 will likely go to Andromeda. After that, I’m considering BValk or Hatsume.

Also of note, NA will likely get uevo Goemon after the next maintenance. I currently have to match to clear the first floor and use RSonia to deal with the boss floor, but Goemon will allow me to nuke the first floor and not have to think on the boss floor at all. This only further increases the appeal of FT4 over Mechdragons.

I was sick most of the three-day weekend, but illness didn’t prevent me from farming more +eggs. I spent most of Monday in FT4 while also catching up on some anime and TV shows; something that only FT4 allows since you’re just pushing buttons until the last floor. This process will become even more streamlined once NA gets uevo Goemon, perhaps the single update I want most at this point.

This was my best drop rate in FT4 in a couple of months. I’ve complained about the monotony of farming FT4 before, but until we get some of the other luxuries JP already has — like 3x +egg drop rates in normal dungeons or the Star Vault coin dungeon — I don’t see many better alternatives outside of Star Vault guerrillas. While I appreciate the other benefits Mechdragons affords, it being more than 50% worse than FT4 for just +eggs has really turned me off to it; I’d rather just spend the time in alt. coin dungeons.
