I haven’t used a Shynpy since they day they were released, the only type I’ve never used. I was actually considering using them on Izanagi. This was back in the time when it was almost justified since Athena was still good and he didn’t have skill up fodder, but thank god I didn’t go through with it. It’s things like this that you sit on Pys for.
I do plan on skilling an Elia, but I’d like to minimize the amount of Pys used. Luckily, this event has some nice dungeons to farm. First, Izanami and Thoth & Sopdet are around to skill up those Halloween silvers (I’m glad my laziness paid off and I didn’t farm Sopdets in the Descended Challenge). Even better, they are both on Sundays meaning I can get in as much farming in as my sanity will allow. After that, I’m looking at Grimoires, Aamir and Zhang Fei to add to my farmable roster. Unfortunately, there’s nothing easy like Goemon, but we can’t have everything, I guess. I expect there will be much frustration in my future, but there isn’t any huge rush. My Kanna team still needs a ton of +eggs and Awoken Sakuya is still a month or so out.
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.
Being in-between events, I decided to try the Py coin dungeons for the first time. In my first 300 or so stamina I got 2 Shynpy drops. Not sure I’ll be this lucky in PAD again. As if to confirm this, I’ve spent about 1000 stamina since and haven’t even seen one.
However, Pys don’t need to drop to make this worthwhile. The insane EXP combined with decent +egg drops and great EXP fodder makes farming alt. technicals extremely lucrative. I’m just sad there isn’t more time to farm them before the next rotation. I hear the other set with Pengdras isn’t nearly as good — since it looks like they take about 50% more stamina to run — but now that Pengdras are actually good, running them has to be decent for fodder EXP at the very least.
Now, what am I going to use these on? No clue. I’d rather them be water ones for Karin TBH. Supergirl seems the most likely target, but they’ll likely collect dust in my box until I decide to play with my light monsters again.
