Title: Sakura and Dragons Thread 33 - But it's not like we'll ever get her in NA, so.
Post by: Matsuri on March 24, 2017, 07:58:18 AM

Puzzle & Dragons is an iOS/Android puzzle RPG that plays like a cross between Bejeweled and Pok?mon.  It's completely free to play, but has premium time-savers available through purchasable "magic stones," the game's premium currency (which can also be obtained frequently as rewards in-game), which allow for increased inventory, pulls from a rare egg machine, and more.  If you're patient enough the game gives you enough stones through special events and rewards that you shouldn't need to buy any.  (It's recommended you don't because most things can be obtained/beaten without spending money and some amount of patience and skill.)

You can control monsters from lowly slimes to dragons to ancient gods and even obscenely powerful magical girls who have been inserted from their source material into convoluted storylines like Sakura (above). They all mostly have different stats and skills, allowing you to customize your team for any number of purposes.

Real talk though, the real reason to get into this game is because everyone else here is playing it and has been playing non-stop for the past 2 and a half years, and probably won't stop for a long time thanks to constant updates to the game and its mechanics, balance changes that never directly nerf anything and are mostly focused on increasing the viability of older monsters, and of course the endless addition of new monsters and collabs that are dished out on a regular basis.

If you're interested, there's a really useful database and game info here:

http://www.puzzledragonx.com/ (http://www.puzzledragonx.com/)


And a useful tool to show other people your monsters here:

https://www.padherder.com/ (https://www.padherder.com/)


A tip for new players: At the end of the tutorial the game will give you one free pull on the rare egg machine.  It's best to "scum" this pull and start over (by uninstalling and reinstalling) until you get something that's really rare (a god).  Great starters include any of the Chinese gods, Amaterasu, Isis, Verdandi, Lu Bu, Bestet, Odin, Kali, Shiva, Amaterasu, Sonia, and the Dragonbounds. Feel free to ask!

If you need more help or just want to discuss the game, we also have a P&D channel on the MotK IRC network in here. Just type your name and go.
For those using IRC clients other than webchat, the channel is #puzzleandlibrarians on irc.ppirc.net.

Post by: Matsuri on March 24, 2017, 08:00:59 AM
so yeah like sakura's stats were announced and she can do 324x damage and give a 75% heart cross shield when paired, and her active recovers all HP, binds, awoken binds, and gives a 75% shield for a turn. Oh and she's bindproof. with double SBR, SB, and TE.

so even if she's stupid hard to use I still want her

make it happen GH NA

oh yeah and everyone else was announced too but idfc about them

What are her activation conditions? Because that's pretty much exactly Myrei but with a real active. Not that I'm complaining about Myrei being creeped already mind you, since she came pre-outclassed by Myr.

Sakura's LS is super heart hungry.

3x for 2 heart combos, 6x for 3; 3x Atk/50% damage cut for heartcross.

So basically MyRei got dumpstered.

Post by: Zengar Zombolt on March 24, 2017, 01:30:33 PM
So she's the unholy combination of Miru and Gadius, huh? Guess this'd be the kind of team where heart overloading actually works out.
Title: Re: Sakura and Dragons Thread 33 - But it's not like we'll ever get her in NA, so.
Post by: Mеа on March 24, 2017, 01:38:13 PM
While it isn't impossible for sakura to get a full activation off of one board, it seems waay too easy to be oversaturated with heart orbs and accidentally connecting the cross and heal combos together. The difference is that myrei has like no skill support in getting her activation while there are plenty of heart feeders to sakura's hunger.

e: and she has a frickin sub-attribute
Title: Re: Sakura and Dragons Thread 33 - But it's not like we'll ever get her in NA, so.
Post by: commandercool on March 24, 2017, 01:48:09 PM
Myrei was already dumpstered. She was born in a dumpster. The minor upside is that if you just clear the board every turn you should more or less keep getting usable Myrei boards, which is not the case at all for Sakura.

Obviously Sakura can actually use actives as part of her plan and be consistent and shit so it's not a real tradeoff, and she can do mono-colored damage so as to actually hit as hard as you would expect from that multiplier, but it's something I guess.

Post by: The Greatest Dog on March 24, 2017, 02:18:24 PM
the issue is, you're devoting 11 orbs in very specific positions (and merely 3 combos) that impedes the matching of pretty much anything else. You'll be hard pressed to get any sort of row or TPA out of her full activation.

Meanwhile new Fenrir gets x324 for six colors, six combos, scales even higher, and provides enough jammers on his buffed 4 CD that you probably don't even need jammer makers as subs anymore.

I'm with you on that one, despite the fact of how trollable for most people damage shields/absorbs can be.

Oh hey JP got a new title screen and 3-player. That's pretty cool.
Oh, and 3-player mode is the most broken thing, too, and can be used with literally any 3 teams? Alright.

But yeah, 3-player is interesting.
You can pick a helper like singleplayer, but 2 other people randomly join you. so basically, it plays like two-player, but everyone gets a helper.
And there's currently only 2 0-stam event dungeons.

So I know I can't really value the combo boost awakening correctly until I've played it, but is it just me or are Rozuel and most of the Awoken Heroes kind of bad?

Post by: The Greatest Dog on March 29, 2017, 12:54:13 PM
It's more like

combo shields are getting really dumb recently

Rozuel gets some 2.25/49/2.25 with perfect damage control (Sopdeeeeeeet) and her active combos pretty nicely with Reincarnated Leilan (who also has 7c awakenings) to make a R/G/H board.

Awoken Heroes are weird. Not what I expected.

I dunno anymore, since you can now get banned for griefing 3P runs lol

combo boost awakening is so busted

it's hard to make use of it if you can't combo higher than 6 consistently tho.

Post by: The Greatest Dog on March 29, 2017, 02:53:26 PM
The other major thing is apparently Reincarnated Ascooby Doobis loves to stack 7c awakenings on his subs, so everybody gets a free 2x damage just for hitting 7 combos regardless
which is what Ascooby Doobis does

all the time

It's hella you on heroes. Though admittedly, they'll function much differently than before.

Rozzy is a tossup. It's a lower multiplier flat out for more work, and excludes her from row teams again by basis. On the other hand, she gets 2 sbr in exchange for that bit of damage which is absolutely a thing for a 'cleric'.

But Rozzy's value has always been in being a hyrbid offense cleric and i'm not sure a single lone 7c cuts the bill.

It depends on what you need, I guess.

I mean, yeah a lot of the Heroes thing just comes down to the fact that I mostly run rows. If you're into prongs then they're probably pretty great.

LMeta is no longer shit-tier. Dear god.
Light, no sub attribute
God/Attacker
3254/2580/203
Same active, still unbindable, with bind heal awakening. Also an autoheal, SB, SBR, TE, and Guard Break awakens.
LS: 2.5x ATK/RCV to God types, 3x for every Light Cross. So if my math is right, 2 light crosses = 506.25 with matching leaders.

Holy shit, a supportive bomb. Same active, so she has a very low cooldown, so she can pack a good Assist easily, and with 6.25x RCV you can pretty much just stall forever on what doesn't kill you. Best of all, she's got pretty great damage control. You have 6.25x atk for pinging, 56.25x for normal, reliable damage, and 506.25x for sweeping. I'm impressed.

DMeta got a split, too:
Dark, no sub attribute
God/Balanced
4530/1931/493
gains SBR, TE, and 7c awakenings
LS: No skyfalls, 1.5x all stats to Gods, 6x to Gods under 80%.

So she's kind of back to where she started with the HP conditional to an extent, but 2.25/81/2.25 is respectable and she's capable of more than glass cannon builds like she she used to be.


Metatrons are no longer garbage; I'm so proud of them ;_;

That said, I don't like PAD's new trend toward single-attribute units. It's pretty dumb.

 It's a bit confusing to me, the single-attribute issue. I guess Revos and MP dragons get to be exempt from that rule because they're on steeper EXP curves? (And the new rem dragons because their base forms have 16m exp curve, apparently their evoa don't level up at all)

the new coop meme team is REVO Liu Bei + Split Ult DMeta... lol

That said, I don't like PAD's new trend toward single-attribute units. It's pretty dumb.

Generally units that have really stupidly high weighted stats that aren't REVOs or things on stupidly dumb EXP curves have only one attribute

EDIT: In latest PAD news.

Cthulhu finally makes his debut, featuring massively disgusting stats for a farmable while at the same time completely obsoleting a REM roll

His buds Nyarlathotep and Azathoth join the crew. Azathoth is notable for having DKali's AS with 3 turn bind heal but having the same cooldown as DKali's skill.

Well, now I know two different edgelords who are getting into PAD just because of this. They're like "We'll be good enough to get these by the time they come out here" and I'm like "Uh, take it easy, probably not" and they're like "Nah we got this, besides it's three players so someone can just carry us" and I'm like "How would you even know if you had this, you've never played PAD".

So, uh, whales incoming I guess...

I mean they can only be obtained via Annihilation Plus so it's going to be hard as nails on release except for the 1%

However to their credit, NA will most likely receive tools to make that much easier by the time 3P comes out in NA

They're like "We'll be good enough to get these by the time they come out here" and I'm like "Uh, take it easy, probably not" and they're like "Nah we got this, besides it's three players so someone can just carry us" and I'm like "How would you even know if you had this, you've never played PAD".

So, uh, whales incoming I guess...

Technically, as long as the dungeon doesn't have unbeatable mechanics, and doesn't disable continues, they're right. It would be insanely wasteful, but they'd be right.

well at least I have time to get myself Azathoth materials (and then never succeed at the dungeon when it debuts)

Time to throw myself at A3 until I get a combination of not-Vishnu and Heradora again.

I think the most interesting thing to show up on my mail today was a couple of solicitations for BFs.
As in, they wanted me to add them.
They looked mighty generic, plus one of them was for pre-reset BFing and the other one's usual leaders didn't interest me (except the one I have over a dozen of).

Do you have any inherit that doesn't get me killed by a preempt when I use it because it removes the main point of running a team with 70k hp? Preferably something that kills predras.

if you don't cheat you need extremely high tankability, it basically demands co-op stats even though you can't co-op osc.

I wouldn't think it should take most people with an established and developed question more than one stone, but it's kind of an interesting question. What do you guys think?

Honestly, Myr is ridiculously strong.

If you can't clear the dungeon in 2-3 stones at most though, you're just going to endless loop on her imo though. So i'd say 3 at most, ideally only 1.

Yeah, I was going to say that if you have good enough shielding and damage control you can just bring anything to Heradra. I was able to clear in 5 turns with Yomidra (about 30k HP) by using Indra shield. Since her preempt is only 20-something-k it means you can tank two hits.

Combo boost is not damage absorb-friendly. The two Nuts hitting vastly harder than everyone else on the team is a bad deal (I used Nut the first time).

Reptune would have a better go of it for sure, but there's still an uncomfortable amount of damage range on the team.

My A3 encounter had each Roots and Baldin with a god killer, Kanna doing her quaddong damage and light advantage, and of course Ragnarok having x9 for God/dragon killer

So this entire conversation of varying damage ranges on a team makes me kinda chuckle

BASICALLY I am very lucky that I have Fujin :V

Okay wow, so with Reptune I died to the red wizard in the one-shot challenge three times in a row. Each time it was try to make minimal matches->massive skyfalls including activating my full multiplier-> drop her to one HP->have one turn to deal a single damage to her->fail and die. Three times. Ugh.

ff, is it possible you could have Reptune up again at some point over the next few days? It doesn't necessarily have to be at a specific time, I can do it whenever you want to put him up. But it's going to take me at least one more try and I'm too tired to pop my experience boost right now.

Zeusdora's damage void is not affected by Fujin's active, but if there's something else with a damage absorb like Sopdet or Vishnu that is bothering you I'll keep Neptune up throughout the weekend.

It's super nice that it theoretically gives you the ability to use any card you want, even if you don't pull them. Is that system taken from another game, or is it a PAD original?

Ooh, I should make an Osiris team too. I've always loved his art and I have a ton of great green subs. Wonder if I have enough spare hypermaxes laying around to hypermax an entire Osiris team from scratch?

Fuuuuck you just made me notice that my little Osiris project is missing two SBRs. IRonically I have Vishnu for that on one side, on the other hand Ruel and Sylvie (for now) have none. Maybe I should begin with it being a Vishnu team until I get a suitable Ruel replacement and the 5 anniversary stream buffs roll around? Or is Ruel's split ult good for it considering I'm trading two TPA for a 7combo awakening?

I really want to make Hathor's new evolution a thing actually, but she honestly seems terrible. Am I wrong? 144x doesn't seem that impressive, and her subs hit for less. I mean, her bulk is really solid obviously like all of the new Egyptian 2.0s, but given her extremely limited awakenings and niche active it seems like you have to jump through a ridiculous number of hoops to get the payoff. And at that point I might as well just be running Myrei.

after having evolved Odindora to superawesomeattackerOdindora for Sherias Roots/Osiris/Fenrir, one of my old BFs started using Pompompurin again and I really wanted to get on that train again

This dream is my dream. As The Greatest Enemy would say, "I have no regrets for the life I've lived."

Edit: Hathor seems like a good sub for Fenrir if you need a gravity with more consistent ~oomph~ than Kirin, Z&H, Nordis or Hades might provide. Gainaut ensures that you'll have 7 possible combos and once x324 for Rainbow+Jam launches, Hathor should hit preeetty damn heavily on a Fenrir crew.

Her awakenings as far as support goes, suck, though. Use Kirin if you need bind clear or Hades if you need time extensions.

Yomidora, Ragnarok, and two Odindora. So that's about 1.2 million MP of stuff.

I might not have used Yomidora in months, but Ragnarok is still a mainstay of Ronove/Roots for me, and frankly having two Odindora doesn't bother me at all either.

I suppose I could have saved for, say, Dark Athena or something, but like. Why?

I've got just about a million MP sitting around and I guess I'm probably gonna pick up Summer Myr if she's up again. And it wouldn't take much of a buff to push me over the edge to picking up Ragnarok.

Gotta raise Zhang Fei now.  Super nice inherit if slow, and works with Ishida for non-Ceres wood teams.  I've always wanted him to be better and while I would prefer direct viability, this will do for now.

Also excited over several Awakening additions.  GGY gets 7c which will be cool since his base Atk is kinda low.

Probably gonna hypermax Ruka, she seems legit as hell now.

I have to rework my Myrei team again since previously Awoken Yomi was my only green card. Need to squeeze green in somewhere. Sucks that both Orochi and Yomi, two premier rainbow subs, both lost green recently. I might consider revo Susano though (Rusano?).

I'm not currently using vanilla Scheat on any teams, but she seems too amazing not to now. Reeeeally sucks that she still has no lock resists though, since Nut is already hard up for them. May just have to plan on running Nut/Rukia, but I want to multiply Scheat's big HP moooore!

You know my pain with my Karin team loadouts now.  I'm DESPERATELY hoping she is B/G in her REvo, whenever those JP degenerates can bother making her, because a lot of my favored options changed colors and suddenly I have like no wood coverage unless I slot in like...Balboa.  (Who is good, mind, but not what I want to use as a permanent resident.  Amon's B/G in Awoken but I'm not switching because I prefer him unbindable and gigantic as he is right now in his bankai ult form, plus I occasionally lead with him and losing physical support would kill a lot of my subs for him)

The TPA China girls, Byakko and Genbu, have gone back to their "Easy Evolution" colorings of D/R and G/D, while Suzaku has gone to her Twinlit coloring, R/L. If this "trend" continues, we can expect Seiryuu to go back to B/D coloring.

Maybe Alresha? I dunno how attached you are to G/D with the god killers though.

Lei's art kinda grew on my. I still prefer regular Awoken, but the reincarnation looks pretty cool. Can't say I like Sakuya's reincarnation though.

sevenzard went down easy with revo astaroth

and whoever the fuck the next dragon is is just dumb because of niflheim and this game's endless desire to punish you for being too good at the game like what the fuck i can't even hurt you when your damage barrier is so low

Not exciting at all, but honestly I'm really okay with this. These are all either new (can't believe I didn't have Marine Rider since I've pulled like 6-7 Beaster Riders) or Kushi, who I'm happy to have two of. Not bad at all. I guess.

So I've had to rework Myrei in light of Yomi's new subattribute. Previously it was Myrei/Pollux/Rorochi/DKali/AYomi/Myrei, and as of today it's Myrei/Pollux/RSusano/Dkali/RYomi/Myrei. Losing the delay feels bad, but I've got even more shitloads of HP, more bind mitigation, more base attack, and the same number of time extends, so hopefully I'll be okay.

Post by: commandercool on April 16, 2017, 12:52:04 AM
Lock resist is nice because even a single locked orb can break a Kali effect from actually giving a correct spread. Since that's the closest thing Myrei has to consistency it seems good to have. Not to mention that sometimes it's nice to be able to get the time boost without ruining my own board like Myrei's normal active does.

Meanwhile trying to run MechZeus with Reptune and keep getting close, but no success yet. I'd say like 80-90% of my runs end in a Limit Burst from one of those stupid mech dragons. That doesn't seem right...

Nah, the only gemstone I have is Sheen. Which admittedly may have been good, I don't actually know how the calculation on those works.
Title: Re: Sakura and Dragons Thread 33 - But it's not like we'll ever get her in NA, so.
Post by: Jq1790 on April 17, 2017, 12:51:07 AM
Sheen is 1+(TE Awakenings * 0.3).

Carat is the same but with Skill boosts.

The only one who has a different calc is Silk, who is 1 + (fire/light/heal OE *0.15).

(Also ifyou for some reason can't use your Awakenings you can't use a gemstone buff either so be careful in those cases)
Title: Re: Sakura and Dragons Thread 33 - But it's not like we'll ever get her in NA, so.
Post by: commandercool on April 17, 2017, 01:07:17 AM
So I'm assuming badges don't factor into this then? If not then Carat would be 3.1x and Sheen would be 2.5x. Either of those would've done it since Reptune is a 2.5x that doesn't actually effect my whole team.

Although in practice neither of them would've mattered. I burned my Reptune's active on the first turn but only hit a seven combo with rows and didn't break him shield. I had to stall up my friend Reptune and definitely wouldn't have had a chance to stall all the way to another skill after that.

Theoretically that would've been the way to go though.

I have a stack of those laying around unused. And seem to be weirdly lucky about getting them from PreDras, although I'm probably back to not running PreDras for a while since I'm pretty much full up on them again, and now on MP.

Ended up grabbing a finger just to burn off a few points, then realized I don't have anywhere to put it. Oops.

Just pulled a Sheen from the REM after seeing the gemstone gala. Pretty nice when you consider that I run a ton of high TE teams. There'll be 10 on my YomiDra team once Revo Pandora comes out... though I'm not sure who I'd give the assist to. Revo Tsukuyomi, maybe?

Post by: Zengar Zombolt on April 22, 2017, 01:16:44 AM
Sounds like a sound decision, 10 TEs would certainly reduce the need to use an time extending active unless you're really hurting for it or if you're dealing with a time-reducing skill, and the orb enhances are super less of a damage boost than a gemstone boost. The only little issue is that 8 turns as a base is less than ideal but given that you might as well almost not use that active otherwise, it's really not a big deal.
Also grats on the gemstone '3'

And yeah, there's really no better choice, as Yomi has the shortest CD of the whole team (YomiDra, Pandora, Revo Yomi, Eschamali, Revo Haku)-- and there isn't anyone who I'd want to have lose their active to Sheen's if I stall too long because Yomidra is an orb-hungry beast.

Edit: God Antonio has become so obnoxious. I can feel how awkward and uncomfortable Richard feels whenever he says anything

Edit 2: That was either the shortest stream ever or the longest shill-out for Voltron I have ever seen

Is anyone here playing Osiris? Or does anyone at least know what an optimal-ish Osiris team looks like? I've been considering investing in (gasp) a non-blue team lately for times when I can't really play blue, and Osiris seems cool and good. I have a lot of solid green stuff but I don't know if I really have an Osiris team or not.
I've got a partial osiris team, but what makes me iffy on running him as I have it now is that it needs one 2xSBR sub that also works with TPA. The good news is that the upcoming Ruel split ult fills that niche neatly, not having 3x TPA like the normal one but having the 7combo awakening. Aside from that is the usual wood TPA suspects. Vishnu, Phact, RBastet, RParvati, RMeimei, RArtemis, Sylvie and APerseus to mention some. The one sub you can slot for 2SBR is A/RFreyja for now, she has one TPA :D

I have some of those. And Spica or CeresMari to fill in the 2x SBR slot. Every composition I've put together so far has a pretty alarming lack of fingers though. Spica, Parvati, and Mari have zero, the upcoming Ruel has zero, Osiris, Meimei and Verdandi only have one... Even Awoken Perseus only has one down from the two that super ultimate Perseus had. Normally I wouldn't be too concerned, but that does seem slightly worrying on a combo team.

You could go the "I have too much MP route" and get Odindora, who simultaneously fulfills the role of 2x fingers, 7 combo awakenings, massive stats, amazing cleric, etc etc

But I'm just trying to justify my own purchases to myself :)

Well this is no awakenings so it didn't.

Give me a week or so and I will get back to you on it after I find out what it changed in practice. I will say that having full resist is incredibly noticeable, and almost borders on overpowered, if we didn't already have a lot of other OP bullshit in the game already.

In the whiners' defense, it really does feel like they have been dragging their feet on the matter of content like DAthena. Then they finally announced a stream, got everyone's hopes up, and just made it into a 45 minute shill for the Voltron collab, which is a total flop that, if GH is using this as metrics for the hype of exclusive content, will probably prevent the addition of new exclusive content after.

Also: Yooooo Awoken Gabe and Uriel are a thing now (took them long enough to get Awokens tbh, and that's not even counting Mikey or Raph). Super glass cannon-y with a 367.5x atk boost if you have >80% HP, make 2 heal combos, and 7 combos overall (7c awakening).

...come to think of it, these are a complete departure from their previous tank-like LS stats. No HP and no RCV boost is kinda weird for them.

I kind of feel like the new active is much worse overall, although obviously it's better if you're leading with the awoken forms.

Well, it's a good thing I have two Gabriels! But now I need two more Gabriels to inherit onto my two Gabriels...

Kind of disappointing that Revo Gabriel won't be a stall lead when he comes out in the relatively distant future. Hmm...

I'm glad they put in the amatsu for the new monster hunter collab, I liked him and he seems a bit shafted despite essentially being the last boss of mh3p.

But now that the heart column resolve breaker skill is a thing, soon there's going to be an 'absolutely will not die this turn' shields that new descend bosses will be sporting.

e: you know, it'd be super trolly but it would be an interesting idea if future bosses could activate shields off your board if there are 5+ hearts remaining on it when you're attacking. Hopefully it'll be in a no rcv dungeon where the boss spawns hearts or in a no skyfall dungeon. They already have the mechanic built in where the boss changes attack if there are certain color orbs on the board.

Instant Heal has more usability by far than heart enhance, tbh.

It's less raw heal, but heart enhance is usually super overkill levels anyway in my experience.

Worst case, it differentiates them by the better in every way UUVO heroes, which is good.
Title: Re: Sakura and Dragons Thread 33 - But it's not like we'll ever get her in NA, so.
Post by: commandercool on April 27, 2017, 10:18:05 PM
The heart enhance has always been most useful for adding a significant amount of damage output to bursts after a heartbreaker in my experience. That's really the most relevant on a stall team where every added scrap of damage can mean the difference between a clean one-shot or not though, so I guess that might be a lot less applicable on other kinds of teams.

And yeah, good point, being as distinct as possible from the heroes is good. Especially since Awoken Gabriel's new typing means he loses out a bit on the very particular stat distribution his super ultimate form has, and both of them have their awakenings shifted a bit closer together in their awoken forms.

In the process of cleaning out my box of stuff I don't need or use to get MP and free up space.

Are there any of these that I could get away with throwing out? I feel like their uses are pretty limited and none of them really mesh up with teams or colors I tend to use-- or they're outclassed entirely by units that are strictly better:
Dupe Kaede (is there a real point in having a second one, when I have a hypermax one already?)
Barbara (I have no idea what to do with her tbh)
Fenrir Viz (honestly, regular Fenrir seems stronger and I have both?)
Mito (she's cute but I feel Ceres plays her role just as well, if not better)
Kuvia (like Barbara, I have no idea what to do with her)
Sherias
Zuoh
Wedding Bastet
Christmas Freyja
Wedding Ruka, as opposed to normal Ruka
Algedi (I really have no use for a Jammer maker?)
Any of the CyberBeasts/Dragons
Claymore
Wee Jas (maybe inheritable, idk)
Rei and Dill Sirius
Green Zhuge Liang (aka forgotten forever)
Apocalypse (I have two)
Dupe Izanagi
Dupe Astaroth (considering I have a pentamax Revo)
Green Guan Yu
Any of the Ninjas, I have all of them (fuck you hanzo)
Avalon Drake
Dupe Sakuya (considering I have pentamax Revo and Coloring Book Sakuya)
Dupe Indra
Dupe Ra (2) (considering I have a Revo one-- maybe keep for pushbutton teams?)
Dupe Freyja (considering I have a hypermax Awoken one)
Halloween Parvati (may keep just because Parvati)
Dupe Y'shtola
Terra (may keep just because Terra)
Bartz
Tidus
Auron
Zidane
Squall (may keep all the above just for collecting)
Dragon Swordsmen (have them all except Dark I think)
Fairytale Girls (have them all)
Shinji (not Scheat Shinji)
Balancile Another (the JP version has a shitton of row awakes, but I rarely use rows in light or dark-- and the NA version is trash)

Keep in mind I'm not planning on trashing all of these, it's just that I'm not really sure they're good for much. Thoughts?
Title: Re: Sakura and Dragons Thread 33 - But it's not like we'll ever get her in NA, so.
Post by: commandercool on April 28, 2017, 12:56:43 AM
It's generally my policy to never trash a non-dupe, but there are things I would consider throwing out in the following categories:

-Any weapons (Claymore and pals)
-Any Beast Riders
-Any Beast Rider 2.0s except Phoenix
-Almost any collab silvers
-Most chibis
-Many event silvers
-Event gold recolors in colors I don't play
-Most PAD Z stuff
-6* GFEs in colors I don't play

As dupes go I think I lean toward keeping things I probably shouldn't, but I think you can probably safely toss any dupe that isn't in a color you play heavily. I would hang onto the extra Ra unless you already have a pushbutton team though.

Post by: The Greatest Dog on April 28, 2017, 04:10:24 AM
Off the top of my head. Fenrir Viz is a crazy leader, but for different reasons than Fenrir. Use your superior durability to wait and strike at x225 damage, or some such. Viz is also still a good sub for Fenrir if you don't intend to use Gainaut, etc etc.
For new Revo Kirin, Sherias covers colors better than LKali does.
Zuoh's active is practically obsoleted by Cauchemar in every way, who has become skill assist okay. Nice dark rows tho.
Cyberbeasts and dragons are excellent options for button>swiping dungeons, same with wizards. I know I use a few for STTD, etc.

Algedi is flipping WEIRD in JP. Damage shield for four combos, and 12x ATK for two jammer combos alongside.

Indra is weird. The non-awoken one is preferable when used as an assist, but Revo is preferable if used as a sub directly.

Bartz is one of the best subs for Osiris, but that requires Osiris. Definitely a useful active though in his own right.

Apparently Ronove teams like duplicate Kaede. Don't go too crazy with the second one you have.

Dragon Swordsman. There are better clerics in every color, but maybe if you want an assist so your cleric can break hearts on top? I dunno.

Apocalypse has a fantastic active. I'd save one, but it doesn't return much MP to begin with (rip GFE status).

What, uh, do you like to use when playing?
Title: Re: Sakura and Dragons Thread 33 - But it's not like we'll ever get her in NA, so.
Post by: Matsuri on April 28, 2017, 01:48:14 PM
I ended up selling Zuoh and a couple collab silvers and stuff. Nothing important. I now have enough for DAthena.

Re: Fenrir/Viz: I'll keep it, why not. Maybe a project for a rainy day.
Re: Sherias: True, but I also have 2 Coloring Book Kali too, so there's that. Not quite sure how they match up, but still.
Re: CyberBeasts/Dragons: The thing is, I don't really do much button/swipe grinding. I don't have the patience for it anymore. I have a pushbutton team in Goemon/ROdin/ROdin/Revo Ra/Tengu though, so it works okay for most things, like daily dungeons (except the Mythicals) and Legendary Earth, etc.
Re: Algedi: That's... interesting. I may hold on to her.
Re: Indra: Yeah, I'll keep it then.
Re: Bartz: I have Osiris but I don't run him in anything anymore. Still, I like him, so I'll hold on to Bartz in case I ever find myself wanting to run Osiris lead.
Re: Kaede: I don't have Ronove. But will hold on to her for now.
Re: Dragon Swordsmen: Eh, I'll hold on to them for potential Assist use.
Re: Apocalypse: Also saving for now.

As for what I do like to use when playing, my main leads as of right now are Revo Astaroth, Revo Tsukuyomi, and Yomi Dragon, though I still frequently use Yuna as well. Will probably drop Revo Tsukuyomi as a common lead since, while Yomi's still one of my favorite units in this game, there's no defense in using her, which limits usefulness--  that, and just no one runs RYomi. DAthena, on the other hand...

So that's why a lot of things have limited usefulness to me right now, because a lot of those leads have very particular subs that they absolutely must have (RAstaroth is particularly strict in only really wanting green devils or healers with rows, but I make her do work). It's also probably a lot of the reason why I've lost interest in PAD as of this past year-- they've gotten kind of stale for me (but that still doesn't account for the boring grind, lack of collab hype, slow updates on things that are actually good, ridiculously hard dungeons that require you to have exact team setups or you lose, rules that punish you for being good (and then slapping a solution on extremely rare REM cards), and so on. It's really the Revos that are keeping me playing right now because they give me a goal to work toward while changing up the game a bit)

People have been whining for us to get DAthena for months.  So annoying I almost wish we got skipped for it out of spite but whatever.  I'm more interested in Eldora so I might grab her later on.

GF results so far:
Day 1:
-dupe Eschamali(screw you GH I don't need two.  I won't get rid of her but that's twice I get 6* GFE dupes when I could have gotten something actually interesting)
-Sylph Dupe #3 or 4 I forget.  Sold.

Day 2:
-evo'd Snow White(sweet, I'm certain to enjoy finally owning her)
-dupe GOdin(ugh, like I needed a second?  I guess I can make Asgardian Warlock if I'm ever in a mood or something.)

Gonna aim at one more roll for today, hopefully I manage it.

you mean like my strawberry dragon?

I bought dathena since I was originally a dark person and so I have a bunch of good people for her. Two built in delays is pretty darn good except for when status shields are up then it's pretty useless. With the exception of having to dilute damage a little with blue orbs, she seems a lot better than revo pandora. As usual though my current team is rather lacking in haste actives which hurts it a bit. With the +6 skillboosts you get from dual leads alone, it's nothing inherits can't fix for shorter dungeons though. Or you know, whenever gungho wants to come out with that awoken beach pandora evo.

I'll probably get DAthena after the daily MP dungeons get me past the 750k mark (I've got 656k). This also means I'll pick up dark, as I've been looking through my box and noticed that I've got enough cards to put together a pretty solid team. It's gonna be a completely different playstyle from the combo-based team I've been using since forever and I'm feeling like changing things up after all this time.

I have a DA friend with one, yeah, but their presence is spotty and I usually use my brother's DAthena with Facet to burst Kali down (I'm trying to consistently run Arena 1 for pys and exp).

It's ridiculous because even if I delay Sopdet, I'm still not safe from constant skyfalls ramping me higher than I want to go.

Yeah, I don't totally hate the concept of Sopdet in the sense that an enemy that punishes spike teams and rewards weaker multipliers is a solid idea on paper, but the execution is very bad. Even teams that theoretically should work alright against Sopdet can have rando-losses to skyfalls. You pretty much need Fujin or no-skyfalls to actually be safe, which is kind of horseshit. And stuff like combo boost, type killers, and the increasingly enormous attack values on newer characters makes her even worse because it tends to lead to one or two cards doing waaaay higher damage than the rest, maybe unpredictably. Bleh.

Yeah, I don't totally hate the concept of Sopdet in the sense that an enemy that punishes spike teams and rewards weaker multipliers is a solid idea on paper

I disagree; if it was something punishing or challenging to stronger teams, that's fine, the game needs challenge. But for some teams, she's a completely unmanageable wall unless you are just so lucky to have Fujin. And she may have been easier back in the day when "high" multipliers were what "low" multipliers are now, but after the power creep, she's just not fair at all. I shouldn't have to run a slow, tanky team (because the concept of that wore out for me 3 years ago when AA Lucifer was in vogue and I spent an hour slowly pinging down the Rainbow Keeper dungeon) just to pass her when I need a huge spike burst anyway to kill Kali reliably.

ASopdet is just frankly very bad now and needs to be adjusted for the forced power creep that she now chokes the life out of. Give her more health and a higher damage limit, I don't care. It just sucks to try to run A1 with DAthena and simply match 3 dark orbs and end up skyfalling one or two non-water combos and end up healing her. It's stupid. (at the very least, make her damage absorb timed with her countdown so delays can be a mitigating skill or SOMETHING idk)

Yeah, I'm not necessarily saying something that just makes it so you can't play a high-multiplier teams at all is good. That's bad, and Sopdet is too close to being that.

I *could* maybe say something like Vishnu is to stall what Sopdet is to spike and people don't complain about him nearly as much, but that's not really a fair argument. Stall teams get better at dealing with Vishnu over time while spike teams get worse at dealing with Sopdet, and as much as I like stall it's not really reasonable to expect the game to always accommodate it.

That said, the stopgap  answer here seems to be something I've been a big proponent of lately, Revo Greeks. Specifically the colored ones. They can hardly be called "stall" given that they can one-shot pretty much anything in the game with reasonable setup, and they have the damage control to handle Sopdet. Except oh yeah, not consistently, because fuuuucking skyfalls...

Another thought I have had in the past is simply to remove damage absorbs from the game and replace them with nulls or reductions(like "reduce damage taken by 50/75/99% when it exceeds X" etc).  That way you're still going to get some sort of penalty for overshooting but you never actively LOSE progress as a result.  I dunno.
Title: Re: Sakura and Dragons Thread 33 - But it's not like we'll ever get her in NA, so.
Post by: Matsuri on May 05, 2017, 11:05:31 PM
I'm definitely much more fine with damage nulling, yeah. I would consider that a fair challenge; having them ABSORB it is just stupid (though not entirely unforgivable-- at least ones like Awoken Parvati are just boring and grindy), and giving the player a timer until they die is completely unfair.

And yeah Vishnu is definitely a slap in the face for tanky teams, but not as much as he used to be because atk multipliers for tank teams have been getting way better, as are burst options (pretty much every burst active in the common meta has only improved with time, look at Norse gods, Durga, Lu Bu, the Armored Knights, the Gemstone Princesses, etc-- and the fact that stall teams can happily make the best of them as assists). But I also feel like he isn't as overused in dungeons either? Like yeah, he's been used in a few prominent ones, but it almost feels like they throw Awoken Sopdet in any time they want to artificially make a dungeon harder for the units that they insist on making absurdly strong.

Like, I don't know when we needed multipliers of 300x+, but they became more necessary when they start making bosses with like 100mil+ HP, too. I have to wonder if this is just how the endgame is going to keep going. Stronger and stronger stuff at higher and higher costs to take on bosses that.... will still happily oneshot you just because they can.

What's tricky about it is that the game needs to have more ways to interact with enemies beyond just "do more damage", but PAD's elegant combat system kind of bites it in the ass there, since there aren't THAT many ways to go about it.

There are things that could easily be implemented but never have been like some kind of rainbow shield that requires you to match or attack with a certain number of orb types to damage the boss (maybe make it really interesting by counting jammers, bombs, and poison among them) or maybe some kind of penalty for using actives. Like the boss hits you and does a random orbchange for each active you use against it, so you're not prevented from using them but you have incentive not to.

I think best case scenario is more creative encounter designs like the elemental wizards (Sharon and pals), but even then design space is pretty limited compared to some other game systems.

Post by: Matsuri on May 05, 2017, 11:23:56 PM
Honestly, I wouldn't mind at all a challenge dungeon based on Awoken Lakshmi. Give it a fixed team because it doesn't really matter anyway since she skillbind/awakening binds you (or make the skills relevant to solving specific puzzles and you need to figure out when to use them)-- one mistake kills you anyway (or make it more fair and give a second chance on each floor or something, at the cost of making the puzzle slightly harder). Make it so the challenge is to "eliminate all X orbs" or "arrange the board X way" or "get X combos" or to solve a riddle to figure out the clue to proceed-- something that's an actual test of puzzle skill rather than "how hard can you burst" or "how hard of a hit can you take" or "how long can you stall".

I think it would be legitimately challenging and fun, though it may be kinda boring doing it multiple times once you solve the puzzle unless it's randomized/rotated etc.

Post by: commandercool on May 05, 2017, 11:32:14 PM
I envision that kind of thing working well as a dungeon with a lot of stacking effects from floor to floor. Stacking debuffs so you can use shenanigans on the first chunk, but by the end you're skillbound, awakening bound, and your leads are bound so at that point everyone's on the same page. And maybe if you kept a single poison orb from the first floor around the whole time you can use it to bypass a tricky attack or something.

DAthena's perfect for someone like me who has grown largely bored with the game and hates grinding and has given up on the powercreep hate train with a mindset of "if you can't beat 'em, join 'em". I can see how she would make the game boring for a lot of people, but honestly I find her easy and fun to play in a meta where complex combo/spike teams have been hated out (because clearing endgame shit is a nightmare if you don't have some sort of hp/rcv buff). Like, my preferred playstyle is "make a ton of combos and burst ala Yuna or Tsukuyomi, but they're just glass cannons that can't really do much in the long run. So if the game's gonna punish me for playing how I like, I may as well just change up my playstyle I guess

Post by: commandercool on May 06, 2017, 08:15:10 PM
Considerably better, yeah. Still sketchy as hell design, but less so. Her biggest problem at this point is arguably that she just scales badly to modern damage values though.

/me looks up her split which was announced a while back

Holy crap what is this nonsense?

AND I HAVE A TEAM FOR HER.

After I raise my Sheena team  I miiiight just have my next team lined up already because woooow.  That's gonna be nuts.  I have enough cards to make both a TPA variant AND a row one.  Rows would eschew the 7c bonus most of the time but instead make up for it with raw power because I can fit like 8-10 rows in 4 subs easy while still having room for support(blessed be Schoolthena).  TPAs meanwhile have tons of powerful options like Arty and Vishnu and perhaps even GZL with his 2k Atk tri-prongs going at it while providing a boost and defense hammering if I need either/both.

Seems pretty good, but the one big catch is that you'll need an unbindable bind remover in there somewhere or anything that binds dark/devils/gods is gonna ruin your day (I recommend Typhon!Ana if you have it simply because cute, off-type, and great on-color active, but anything should help--- that, and if you're going full Revo (which for stat/awakening purposes is a great idea), you'll probably want something with a water subattribute so you can activate off of it). I don't really see any problems with it otherwise.

Did a handful of pulls over the last two days. Didn't really mean to, but people kept egging me on and I was (of course) fishing for Andromeda. Here were the results:

-Vishnu
-Perseus (duplicate, probably going to keep)
-Exa-Hydra (duplicate, definitely keeping)
-Ruka (duplicate, trashing)
-Saria (duplicate, trashing)
-Sima Yi (no idea what I'll use him for, but nice!)
-Woodbahn (dupe, threw out my previous one before inheritance existed, probably going to keep this one because his active is non-awful)
-Cao Cao (dupe, probably keeping)
-Sumire (third dupe, probably trashing)
-Gamble Mage (dupe, trashing)
-Fuma Kotaro (makes ninjas yet another series where I have every member EXCEPT the blue one...)
-Satsuki (fourth dupe? Fifth dupe? Definitely trashing)

That's a lot of incoming MP, so I guess I gotta find something to buy... Going to strongly consider buying Odin Dragon. I don't really play green but he seems like a rock-solid rainbow sub. Also considering Ragnarok Dragon for the same reason, Courage just in case I ever need her to get Reptune through a C10 or something, or Linka because I like Groove Coaster. Thoughts?

Edit: Ended up buying Ragnarok Dragon because it slots very nicely into my Myrei team.

It's fortunate that she has a 7x combo awakening because she's not dealing any damage herself otherwise

yeah truth be told idk how I feel about her as a leader and honestly she's much better as a sub in her fire form with 4 skill boosts, 3 killers, and huge ATK and RCV while still having incredible HP

but I cannot resist that gigantic fluff

tbh kirin's not really a good sub for her either but she's my second biggest light type HP wise right now and I wanted to see that HP go over 9000 (literally)

and I don't have any latent extenders yet and if I did it wouldn't be on her tbh-- maybe Yomi Dragon or DAthena since they're my most used mains or something

hmm, how about this

(http://i.imgur.com/O16t75X.png)

I could switch one of them out for New Year Leilan and give Freyr Silk as an inherit but idk if it's worth it because NY Leilan doesn't have a 7c awakening while everyone else on that team does (and Hathor has two!)

Though I also just kinda wonder if I should just run Revo Lei as the lead because she has an even easier LS with guaranteed (and higher) damage reduction that doesn't need activation, and build around that

it's all just a matter of if 7x6 makes that much of a difference

Would it be worthwhile to pair up with a regular, not-fluffy Ilm to maximize damage? After all, you only need one leader to trigger 7x6
Title: Re: Sakura and Dragons Thread 33 - But it's not like we'll ever get her in NA, so.
Post by: Matsuri on May 16, 2017, 09:40:33 PM
No reason not to, really-- they're both compatible with each other and you get Less Fluffy Ilmina's RCV x2 in activation as well, so that's always a plus-- but you do lose damage reduction, so it's a tradeoff

I wouldn't have full SBR that way either, so it might be rough

My cousin says that Fluffier Ilmina makes a great Kenshin partner, so I'll try that too

It's pretty astounding really because it's like "man she has like 3000 less HP than Fluffier Ilmina"

but her HP is still fantastic in Less Fluffy form with much better ATK and RCV, 4 SB, and 3 Killers

As for leaders, there are plenty of teams she fits on. Better to ask what potential leads you *have*.

...though let's be real, LMeta's still insanely unwieldy as a leader and has no form of defense-- simply one of the biggest glass cannons in the game.

I might use LMeta as a defense breaking sub for what it's worth. Not having to use JoJ?rmangandr on Predra (even if it does let you setup) is pretty nice, etc etc.

Dark Metatron is cool, too.

Yeah, a hard hitting support with defense breaking is all she's really good for. As a leader she's incredibly hard to use effectively and is really only good for showing off with. But she's a great unbindable bind clearing sub with 3k+ ATK and respectable HP and RCV, with the ability to break defenses. She's also great to inherit things onto with her really low CD. (Same goes for DMeta)

I should be happy with LMeta getting "better" finally after an eternity.  However, this no longer feels like LMeta at all since she changed so drastically.  Won't be bothering to switch since I hate colorcross leads and like every bind clear does her job better anyway.  Hope others get more enjoyment out of her somehow eventually.

(Also defense break on a no-subatt card is just a raw deal.  Would rather have had a TPA or something there.)

She's a great rainbow sub. I need to rework Myrei already to fit Ragnarok on there and I'm going to try to get NuMeta on board as well. Lack of subattribute is a little limiting but it shouldn't be a huge problem by any means.

Probably go for something like Myrei/LMeta/Ragnarok/DKali/RYomi/Myrei. The only thing that I feel like I'm really missing there is a delay. And Pollux has been doing some work in making Myrei's active feel more tolerable so losing that slot isn't ideal, but I don't really have a great PreDra plan at the moment.

I got tired of people making a thing of it every time. :V

Technically yes but I'm not sure what that would be. Would need to cover blue and I can't think of any great blue or even sub-blue options off the top of my head. Neptune or Neptune Dragon would work but they're pretty awkward,especially when Metatron cleanly fills two important roles at once.

New DMeta is actually where it's at. She's actually tremendously solid, possibly even more so than DAthena, at the price of being quite a bit harder to use. You're not really limited to using TPA subs to do huge damage, and the only condition is that you have less than 80% HP, which isn't much to sweat over at all, unlike how she was years ago as a pure glass cannon. HP is huge, and the no skyfalls gives you really good control over your damage output too-- you can do 2.25x over 80%, 81x at less than 80%, and double that for the DMetas with the 7c awakening-- and that's not counting rows. And recovery is super easy when necessary, with 2.25x on that as well.

Very, very good. I'm legit impressed.

Yeah, and her ultimate form reeeeally didn't help. I mean, of the three 7x6 leads I have she is arguably the best one, but the other two both unlock locked orbs which is pretty relevant so they have other uses. She really doesn't outside of some kind of bizarre team that would stack the same unit with no lock resists, and I have no idea what that team would be.

Chinese damage reduction is always on.  It is worded to show it as a separate thing; hence it not saying like "4.5x Atk and reduces damage when attacking with two of Fr/Wd/Lt" or something.

Well, Navi definitely got better. This didn't fix what was wrong with her, but it's surprisingly good I think. She's still a sub nobody really wants but she's a much better sub, and as a lead she's no longer necessarily a huge liability in the damage department. Hmm.

Split Sonias and Norns are cool.  Want Skuld more than ever.

Zuoh is stronger than Ilm technically Atk mult wise if you can hit seven combos consistently which I find amusing.

Ney is dumb and shouldn't have been made because those numbers are beyond stupid.

None of the above matters because BG KARIN YESSSS.  I've been so scared she'd be BD and hamstring my team comp variety but no.

Had to restart the snow globe dungeon because it was either not giving me light or dark, or pitiful amounts of either while giving me tons of blue and green, which I don't want right now.

New stuff seems pretty cool. Looking forward to seeing what Split Cloud/Seph/Lightning do.

Ney is cool in concept but I don't really care much for her, I don't think. 64x atk 9x rcv unconditional with all dragon callers/dragonbounds is interesting, but I just don't feel that interested in her-- and I look at her split ults and thing "oh, she'd make a good DAthena inherit" or "that's a decent Myr sub" or "that was made to be a Fenrir sub".

The new dragonbounds look neat. Wonder if they're going to be GFEs or farmables.

Split Ariel seems pretty good.

Split Hamals are cute, at least, but statwise it feels like the sub version is just the new age Hanzo-tier stats, and the leader loses all of the good awakenings. Not that rows are suitable for that LS anyway, but still.

Awoken Indian 2s seem extremely orb-hungry. I wonder what people are going to think of a Ganesha that doesn't do any exp/coin boosting.

Revo Karin is long overdue, nice to see the set completed.

Split Sonias seem pretty nice. I like them. Zuoh looks good, but I dunno how I feel about things that don't give HP or defense boosts at this point of the game.

Split Norns are... okay. Skuld definitely seems the best off with that follow up attack and double 7c. I just really don't like this new trend of losing subattributes.

Revo Isis is decent, but only when using skills. 100x atk/6.25 rcv isn't too bad considering the requirements, but she's kinda meh otherwise. Decent damage control at least?

Super ult Ragnarok Dragon is interesting. You get excellent damage control through that leader skill. Worth the effort though? idk

Yes, Ryune is on the team, but I keep getting massive water skyfalls from the Zeus Mercury buff and knocking it down to nothing. Wouldn't be as much of a problem if I could just knock Gronia into black without triggering her insta-kill, but that's a tall order with the skyfall bonus.

Ohhh you drew the NoahDra route.  That's...ow.  I forget, do you have Saras or (A/R)Hermes yet?  (Or BEscha or Scheat or whatever, just something with a skyfall enhancer)

Or Famiel.  Famiel would also work.

Yeah, Noahdra. Sorry. So probably the easiest route for me (especially since my team is 100% U/B so there's no chance at all of accidentally hitting an element absorb off a skyfall). Honestly I should just kill Zeus before the water boost. The only place that would really hurt me is against Lucifer.

Don't have Sarasvati or Hermes, do have Famiel. How would Famiel help? Does he have a new active or buff or something I missed?

A quick search tells me good subs include A.Perse, Balboa, Spica, Another Crusader, Star Justice, Avalon Drake, Verdandi and the cyberdragon/beast of the turn. Looks like there's a pretty neat potential row team in there.

Perse, Justice, Alnair, Spica, Phact, Balboa...I have most of the stuff you mentioned which is p great.  I've always meant to make a wood machine team anyway just BECAUSE I had so many of em.  Maybe I'll just make a Star Justice team, heh.

I'm like halfway there. double Alnair, double Avalon, and a balboa in the pocket. Perse is one of my white whales so far, both back when I ran sylvie x freyja and now that I have 3/5 hero gods and the new awoken ones look pretty interesting to have alongside the UUvo ones for different kinds of teams, specially now that we're going into a more TPA focused meta with all the 7Combo awakenings.

Split Norns are... okay. Skuld definitely seems the best off with that follow up attack and double 7c. I just really don't like this new trend of losing subattributes.

All three pretty much won the stream just simply by having the resolve killer awakening. That and 7c awakenings are just so OP.

Skuld's TPA with 2 7c is already pretty stupid. She's like doing 9m when my 2TPA 7c blue subs are doing like 5~6m. Scheat better get ult soon because her attack is just pitiful right now.

I can't even begin to imagine what kind of silliness nei would bring with her 2 7c 2 TPA...

Hey Matsuri, you want to do a Tan infestation co-op some time to smooth out your skillup adventure? I've got a quest dungeon we can do if you want some.

Also, beat the one-shot challenge. Fighting Noah Dragon takes forever as always, but I just needed to throw a bind clear active onto Ryune and make sure not to get Mercury's skyfall buff and that was more than enough to finish it off.

congratz, you can finally rest in peace

so I went pretty all out trying to get escha, pulling about 20? times and now I have zero stones left. Got a ton of trash along with some anubis and ras, the latter of which I almost regret selling because I forgot about his active. New rolls were DXQX, okuni and vritra.

I also somehow managed to get three more hakus. I have six now in total, what am I supposed to do with all these hakus? Aside from my very first reroll kirin I got at the beginning of the game, she's the only other chinese god I've rolled, like what? It's kinda funny and she's a cute so I'm not even mad. why can't I hold all these hakus

I should remember I can use him for that too.  Need to not be lazy and make mine Awoken then REvo though someday.

CCool: Well then.  It finally happened.

As for my own rolls only did two so far, gonna gun for a third today.  Free roll was dupe Lumiel, the other was Jize.  I know he isn't bad but I'm still disappointed.  Oh well.

Definitely keep the dupe Orochi, Orochi is like the best inherit fodder.

Ganesha is a trifecta of great rainbow sub, great inherit fodder, and near-necessary utility card because leading with two of them when you pop an experience boost tama gives more than double experience.

Hm...this is going to be a thing but it's gonna happen eventually.  Been trying some stuff out with my Sheena team and I think I might have it set so I can beat MHera.

Sheena^Sheena/Satsuki^Escha/YomiDra/DMeta^Carat/Grape Dragon/[RVritra^Fujin or Uruka].  Originally the friend Vritra had Carat(no friends with both the dragon and Cameo to my knowledge) but Sadalmelik is being a pain so I kinda wanna just bypass it.

Still though...it's doable.  It is entirely doable...assuming any of my Vritra buddies have one of the damage absorb voiders anyway.

Since I have a million hakus I'm making it my goal to revo all six. I was pretty aimless for the past couple months in this game, only logging in for daily bonuses, so this gives me something to do again at least.

Is there any reason I should keep one of them in her non awoken ult or awoken ult?

e: ok, just 11 purple masks and 1 dark keeper away from getting four revo hakus. That's enough for a haku system if I lead with revo pandora or something. Well that and a metric ton more piis anyway.

So it look like getting two ultimate Ragnarok Dragons is going to take more than 60 Gold Keepers. I also need like five ultimate Star Justices (one of them is going on the team and therefore needs to be skillmax as well). Sheeeeeit.

Well, at least I don't need two of the same radar dragon. I'm sure I could manage, but that would be quite a hassle.

--> Wood Golem (+3 gold keepers)
--> Uvo Canopus
-> Sherospada
--> all three golems (9 gold keepers, +2 additional)
-> Reincarnated Wood Knight Zeal
Star Justice
-> More golems and Canopus
Canopus
Hadar
Ninegaruda
-> Uvo Zombie Dragon
-> Hysferzen
--> RGB Golems again (11 more gold keepers)

Cool. Do we have any compatible leads? I've got most blue things, Myrei, and Haku. Could probably pull off a decent Pandora team too.

I would have thought most DAth teams pack enough time extend to suffice without the badges, though looking at her it doesn't seem that way.

I think if you specifically gear to take any of them out, they don't seem too-too bad.

As far as I know Awoken Raphael has a unique kind of leader skill, right? Based on having a certain number of orbs left after combos? Or has that been on some other stuff that I missed?

6x ATK when the board is left with only 4 orbs or less, 4x ATK for attacking with 4 colors. Ginormous damage potential, and you can even use certain stuff to speedfarm. He's looking pretty fun.

I hope you like making perfect boards.

Jormungandr-Ur(or whatever he's supposed to be called I forget) tasks you with increasingly difficult combo shields up until the very final one which is a 10-to-hit and it IIRC makes the board exactly 6 each of RGBLD, which you must match all of to not die.

I made it to the last round a couple times but 8 seconds was not enough time for me to panic and then make only like 7 or 8 combos. The website that lets you make the board has been pretty helpful in making the boards and I really recommend using it if you make it to floor 10

As long as you don't get hit by Chain Crunch or Dead Judgement, a DAthena team should be able to survive those attacks due to Loki's annoying 2x damage after getting statused. The other thing that does worry me a lot is Thor whacking you for just about that much just for having Loki yourself :ohdear:

So I was in a hotel yesterday with five other people who play PAD. Four of them pulled a Monster Hunter 7* within three pulls. In fact, all four of them pulled the SAME Monster Hunter 7* within three pulls, the blue one.

The Monster Hunter collab is really interesting. The cards are interesting, the way it's structured is interesting, and the dungeon mechanics and aesthetics are interesting. I don't care even a little about Monster Hunter, but I'm enjoying the hell out of the collab.

Oh fuck oh fuck I missed that Awoken Gabriel came out! Fortunately I had everything to make him on hand.

He's weird. Damage is absolutely ludicrous (large multiplier+rows+combo boost=damage) but he has the same basic problems ye olde HP leads had. He can definitely get caught in a loop pf getting knocked down to low HP over and over, although at least his active can dig him out of it.

Post by: commandercool on July 13, 2017, 01:51:14 PM
I mean... Pretty much, yeah? Except way less flexible of course.

I can't imagine that he's good, really. No particular  survivability tools (heals don't count when your HP is that mediocre) and no way of mitigating resolve or absorbs is a pretty bad deal. He seems extremely good against stuff that's already pretty easy to deal with, which is worth something but not a ton. I think. Definitely going to play him more and experiment.

Final Fantasy pixel ults seem cool.

New GFEs are cute but those multipliers are just stupid as hell. Takamimusubi can do 400x but with no stat boosts, Kamimusubi (while insanely cute), can do 306.25x EASILY WITH DAMAGE REDUCTION just by being above 80% HP and matching wood and dark

what the fuck gh
Title: Re: Sakura and Dragons Thread 33 - But it's not like we'll ever get her in NA, so.
Post by: The Greatest Dog on July 14, 2017, 07:19:30 AM
Takamimusubi basically doesn't have an active skill you'll ever use though. I think I would prefer to use Awoken Raphael (or Fenrir), if given the choice.

The other girl looks interesting. More units with follow up attacks is cool I guess.
Title: Re: Sakura and Dragons Thread 33 - But it's not like we'll ever get her in NA, so.
Post by: Matsuri on July 14, 2017, 04:27:27 PM
To be more accurate, I don't like Takamimusubi. We're in a meta where the game punishes you for hitting too hard and not having HP/RCV boosts. She's gonna crash and burn against resolve/damage drains because her leader skill seems so touchy.

Kamimusubi at least has the defense to help her along and a little more damage control, I feel.



Meanwhile, I'm still trying to decide what to involve my Monster Hunters into. They're all so narrow in their usefulness.

Got the girl hunter (is it random?) so I was planning on suiting her up in the narga cat gear. Currently I'm using shiva for dealing with those random predra floor descends so girl narga would actually be not completely out of place in the dathena team.

My understanding is that you get one free Man and one Woman fpr beating the challenge mission on the dungeon.

Blue seems like the way to go on the man unless you like the red one's leader skill, and yeah, I think black may be best for the woman.
Title: Re: Sakura and Dragons Thread 33 - But it's not like we'll ever get her in NA, so.
Post by: Matsuri on July 14, 2017, 06:21:06 PM
You should get a free hunter right away and another free one for finishing the 4 or less unit Monster Hunter dungeon, as far as I know? I got both and never had to buy or pay for anything.

And yeah, I was leaning Narga on female hunter, though I really like Kirin on her too-- it's just that it's completely useless for me because I will never have a full Monster Hunter team.

You can break down all three of each unit's evos, on a leadership basis at least as "only good with a full team of MH units", "only good in multiplayer", or "huge burst but limited usefulness".

So mostly, they're subs or inherit fodder, the more I think about them. I'm probably going to go Narga on female as she seems like the one most useful for my teams, and Mizutsune on male because that art is just gorgeous and... that's about it, really.

That said, Mizutsune Hunter's value isn't to be understated. 1.5x to all stats regardless of typing or attribute? Scaling up to another x9 attack depending on combos (in a very 7c meta right now!)?

It seems like a stable choice for anyone hoping to dive into 3 player stuff, and so on.

It's like 7 combo Ascooby Doobis or 4 combo Dathena.

It's hardly a surprise, though. Probably the last thing that went through their mind was the FUA awakening when slotting in glavenus. It's like a pretty common thing nowadays, the need to lower your expectations from "less than ideal combo ability and some nonideal subs" that JP has to "sorted box by rarity, put on the top 5 results" that we've seen so far.

Okay, Mizu Armor is pretty good. Did a 3-player with an Anubis who died early (why tf are you not running HP boosts bro) and another Mizu armor. We both had to stone (him once, me twice, because I got stuck with Nyarathotep's 30 turn blind and dying was just the easiest way to remove it), and pulled it off without much problem. So that's one eldritch horror down.

I'm interested in this.

I'm not exactly certain what we should bring to prepare for this. Athena's 4-6 turn skill delay is brutal enough as is, but you also have Star Justice literally on the wave before. Also, dealing 40 million damage in one Fujin turn, etc etc.

It really doesn't help that people seem to think you can run leaders that don't give a constant significant damage shield or have an HP boost and still be okay. These bosses deal like 40k damage+ per attack and if you can't survive that, why even bother? I always seem to get paired up with some Revo Anubis player who does well up until the boss and gets annihilated on the first blow.

Well, Ragnarok Dragon is amazing. And he's only going to get better as Awoken Ganesha comes out (currently Misato is filling in for the red and white requirements and she just doesn't bring that much to the table aside from colors and typings and a place to inherit a shield) and as I get more team cost to be able to afford the double time badge and a second ultimate RagDrag. Balboa is also arguably better than the Courage I have in the slot that he usually occupies so if I ever pull him that might also be a significant power boost, but I kind of value Courage's two time extends a lot.

It doesn't work like that, because that has been a categorized bad idea for ages.

It's mostly for evo mats and descendeds, iirc.

Things you can trade:
-Things with a MP sell value of 99 or less

Note that most Descended bosses and the like are worth low enough, but ult Descended bosses(See: LValk 6*+ forms, Goemon, etc), I think the Machine Gods(Hera, Zeus, Athena, Goemon), the rare invade Myth/Legend+ bosses(Think Another Justice, etc), and the like are changed to be 100MP to prevent tradability.

Notable things you CAN trade include MonHun evo materials, Pys, Kingtans, etc.

Yeah, this might create an interesting economy as far as holding on to old collab mats goes. Nobody else in my local meta made Mizu Armor Hunter until I mentioned at the last second that they probably should, and I think most of them came up short of one or two mats. I bet they would give me some cool stuff if I had leftovers to spread around now that they're inaccessible.   :derp:

I also know several very new players IRL, so being able to just give them rare mats would be interesting and helpful. One of them has been missing a red jewel for weeks and I'd happily give her one of mine if I could.

Hey guys, long time no see!
Lately i've been thinking about reinstalling PAD once again and in the end i decided to give it a try, and damn if i am not behind :V
My box is really unbalanced since i was almost a dark-only player so i'd like a bit of advice....

Water and Fire are completely barren (unless you count a lone Ronia XD)

Light: Ra, Sakuya, LKali (x2), Amaterasu, Indra, Ganesha, Pollux

Wood: Verdandi, Kushinadahime, GZL, Marine Rider

Dark: Lu Bu, DKali, DValk, Pandora (x2), Anubis, HVamp, Typhon, ALuci, Z8, DMeta, Lumiel, Okuni, Durga, Haku (2x), HIza, Zuoh, Tsukuyomi, Asmodeus Another, Persephone, Yomidra, Goetia, Loki, Sephiroth, Vritra, Diadem


From what i've read the best lead pairings i can aim for right now are R.Kushi/Diablos, R.Anubis/Diablos and maybe Sakuya/Tachibana BUT .....  i still have almost 1M mp points saved up and there is a certain Dark Athena in the mp shop right now  :3

Do you think i have good subs for these pairings? (from what i've read it seems those 2 Hakus are currently really powerful subs if i reincarnate them and they work for both Kushi and DAthena....)

You could get away with DAthena/2xRevo Haku/A.Okuni/Split Lumiel if you can combo hard enough. Do keep the Revo Anubis team in mind tho, can do Revo Anubis/2xRevo Haku/Split Lumiel/Dvalk for all subs with one 7c awakening, or replace any of them with Revo Yomi to increase your time a lot, even if she's seen as a crutch for many players. Not like you'll be hurting for damage! Hell, if hitting those high def numbers is hard you can slot in Yomidra for light, Revo Yomi for water and one of the many sub fire subs you have to fulfill Diablos' guard break awakening (or DValk's).

Since you're invested in machines a bit have you considered Ragnarok Dragon? His sub requirements are kind of harsh, but if you happen to have them he seems reeeeeally good. He is admittedly extremely difficult to evolve though.

My current team has three Ragnarok Dragons between the two leads and they're pretty good at keeping the hearts coming as needed. Although they're often not really needed between the team's amazing HP, good RCV after boost, tendency to one-shot everything, and resilience to status.

My current team is RagDrag/RagDrag/Spica/Courage/Ganesha/RagDrag. The "optimal" version of the team seems to want Balboa instead of Courage, but I'm strongly considering putting Verdandi in that slot to deal with resolve once she gets her new form even though her active is even sketchier than Courage.

The default Susano active is often/usually preferable as an inherent IMO, but I don't think it's ever really required. You can make whatever form of him you want and it's not going to be a significant problem.

wow split ult sub ryune is super super amazing! 7combo awakening and a FUA on a monster with an active that: 1) can burst kill; 2) activate FUA; 3) has haste; 4) can heal. Such a perfect dathena sub.

I mean, saria too, but I only have myr for a light leader and it's a little harder to burst when you need a cross and a FUA column on the same board (and active, potentially. That's 10 heart orbs you need)

That Ryune~

Wish I had two so I could have both forms, but as always the sub one is definitely the exciting one. I kind of feel like this might make Awoken Gabriel actually kind of good? Not that Skuld doesn't do similar stuff, but on an orb-hungry, weird-combo-intensive (7C+rows+specific heart combos is fairly demanding) has a hard time turning down a haste and a time extend.

Rolled all my stones trying to get an amenominakanushi, if because I was always intrigued by his placement in shintoism. I didn't. But I did get a yog-sothoth which seems the best out of the cthuluans. Other new ones were famiel, mori motonari and maeda keiji. And also a green egg dragon thing but I looked it up and holy carp it's evo has 8k hp. So pretty ok overall.

been trying really hard at the rank dungeon and I got to 5.1%, but I don't think I'm going to get any higher than this. Some miracle of skydrops got me to 7.5ish avg combo which really boosted the score. To get any higher would require more combos and more time which is whoosh

Well judging from FF collab the pixel branch may very likely get the void nullifier awakening which automatically makes it superior.

But really having a pixel art in your party is ugly as heck (think having chibi but much worse) and I already hated how they made most of FF pixel branch better than their original, wasting a bunch of great artwork.

ohh mann that assist evolution looks super cool, the fact that it's not reversible makes me wonder if it's only going to be on farmables. Transferable awakenings, while I can't think of absolutely necessary applications, I can see it filling out sbrs, providing more enhances/tpas, or providing more multiplication bonuses for the actives like the gemstone series. It would've been cooler if the monster themselves evolved into the weapon instead of just taking it from their armor, like soul eater or something.

also I pulled an uruka in the heroine rem the last day which would fit nicely in dathena if I ever need her damage absorb nullifier, so nice

That new assist evo looks really promising, many cards would gain more viability with the right awoken added.
Altho they better keep a strict control over which monsters will be equippable, even among farmables. Can you imagine equippable Whaledor/Raguel? O.o

On a completely different note:

It sounds ridiculously good, since I have no damage control whatsoever. And the art is animated. However, the evolution requires a Pixelit (which also has animated art) and I have no idea how to get that.

It's a free roll on a machine that gives most REM only fire monsters.

Machine Athena had that unforgiving damage absorb (that we conveniently skipped, huh?)

It's not a bind, it's a ten-turn absorb preempt. Stalling isn't technically out of the question, but I'd need an extremely bulky team to try it. That said, I think I may try it. This might be the place for Reptune+Courage.

I would just, you know, use a different color but my only complete non-blue team right now is green and I don't care for the idea of having to bring a team that gets resisted to the dungeon where I was supposed to not get resisted...

also the newly revealed greco-roman 3.0 gods, all of them have color absorb void actives. Ooor at least their non-evo'd forms do so you'd have to stick them as an assist on someone else to get better use in that team slot.

Bzzt; they just need to be, excepting the Descended cards specifically made to be inheritable and other exceptions:

-have Awakenings
-have all current form Awakenings activated

I have a evolved but not ult Ishida Mitsunari inherited on something, for example.

Alright, well, I reached Goemon with Ragnarok, but I didn't account for the fact that he has absolutely insaneballs HP. A full burst barely scratched him and I definitely can't stall against him for long. I guess I can regroup and bring a Sheen boost and a sturdier shield (inheriting Raphael onto Ganesha) and maybe add some Machine Killer latents, but even with Courage I'm not sure I have the firepower to ever actually kill him...

If you have a team that fits her, ans rolled her indeed, you can use Sheena! 7c plus her two killers means Goemon dies the death with relative ease.

Not sure if it helps but i cleared MGoemon in coop with dual Dathena teams.

For Lv. 10, it looks like the worst parts are probably Goemon (just for the 100k first turn attack and the preemptive 75% damage cut for his 27 million HP) and Awoken Karin(who all her attacks deal 55k+ and she has 51 million HP and 500k defense), though one must be sure to have an answer to Beelze's poison board as well.  (and he hits hard too, 45k, 55k(under half), and 67k(every other turn))

I managed to blindly claw my way past Goemon with Reincarnated Karin without looking things up(took me a while to get past Titania but that's a player skill issue more than anything) but ran out of juice to punch through enemy!Karin's defenses/resist.

I got ch9 done with Female Hunter Glavenus/Re.Minerva(Onion Knight)/Ronia/Uriel/Guan Yu. 144x with 2 delays takes care of the resolve bs.

I've been bashing at ch10 with a Julie team but Titania gatekeeps me too hard. My best run of it so far has been using Tifa paired with Yog-Sothoth only to get shut down at Azazel. Co-op Mizutsune is probabaly the way.

it wasn't the best run and I did have to stone 3rice, but I did manage to do ch10 with awoken sarasvati. Having 100k+ hp means goemon wasn't a problem. But man it sure feels like there are a lot of forms of water damage reduction in this. I mean I guess that makes sense. I almost want to try it again legitly but 100 stamina isn't something you go around throwing so I'll swallow my prid.

Now all that's left is ch9 which I haven't seen or touched yet.

They could have made everything like 25% of the stats and it would have been . Make damage limiters or something if you don't want people abusing killers like some people are forced to(not like there aren't enough of those to go around).  Ah well.

Is this gonna be a recurring thing now with new dungeons from here out?

Alt Arena just realeased in jp.
Lets just say it's the most insane thing released with 40k+ pre-empts thrown around like it's nothing.

We might be seeing some crazy inflation soon (3 7c is a good start)

Also, heart OEs are good now. Light hera dragon benefitting a lot with subs like apollo and aladdin

Oh gawd
She's in a new 10 stone REM along with nei and10 other new dragoncallers.
And the inflation. Is. Real.

Assistable leader change (22 cd though), with an insanely LS
Triple killers (of a kind)
Assist weapon with TPA (imagine this on skuld, nei or scheat)
Yog for red with 3 7c

I don't even know anymore.

well I got to takeminakata in ch9, the last floor, without much trouble. I hit him with dathena's delay and I was like "I've won", declaring my victory, but then I pushed him into 50% hp and the sob has an anti-delay feature built in and he puts up 75% shields. That was great. Now to figure this one out.

If you can survive a boosted Firetrap Whirlwind, you could just whittle him down some before you do your delay and burst?  Doesn't sound too complicated if you're able to reach him without issue.  The two turn timer should ensure you can heal from any attacks he uses assuming you're not ENTIRELY screwed over by skyfall un-luck.

oh! huuuuh... somehow I missed that he's on a 2 turn timer (he uses whirlwind every turn?) and that the status shield kicks in after he's below 50%. Thought he through it up immediately. Now I feel really dumb. Now this seems a lot more doable, thanks

Gravity (25% or more)or follow-up were necessary for Geist(Alfecca).

Void Buster was needed I think for Serket(Kopis).

Git gud seems to be the needed thing for Titania from initial examination but I might be forgetting something.

Oh and run fire or water at your own risk.

Ugh. Horrible. Although honestly not surprising given how long I had to wait. The greater the anticipation the worse the payoff. :D

I can buy a Summyr with MP at least. And I miiiight buy some more stones, I kind of meant to for this because I feel like I owe PAD some money for all the free game and excuses to give it money are fairly rare. But then again maybe not because another display like that would be pretty heartbreaking...

I guess the upside is that none of the 6*s and 7*s, mediocre as they are, are dupes because I had never been lucky enough to pull any of them up until now?

Now I expect everyone to pull Fujin from their free pull to make up for this. :colbert:

The only card i truly wanted was Blujin (and Artemis for the color absorb) but since i always get amazing shit except what i'm rolling for i fully expected to get something else.

And i was right  :V

After a few silver i got Tachibana (which is a very good roll)  ::)

I got a Nene somewhere, along with a Scheat and Revo Sun Quan.  Does anyone run her, and what else would be good on her team?

I have no idea how viable it's supposed to be, but I paired with revo Karin with ASaras on nine garuda's technical (thanks cc), since my one ASara friend wasn't up. It was on a whim, a wth why not moment, since it was my small goal to clear it for the past few weeks.

Didn't have a plan for the locked orbs so it did scare me a bit when he locked the screen again on turn 2 (had never made it past turn 1), but it seems karin shield is pretty good.

e: I must have gotten lucky with a dark or green skyfall on the last burst board since I forgot that hearts don't proc karin lol :3

Karin resists everything by 30%, so she tends to make you pretty beefy, not to mention most of blue is pretty sturdy to begin with.

I should finally beat up Ninegaruda myself too.  Gotta do that and Valten eventually so I guess now-ish is as good a time as any.

Edit: saved enough for another roll on beach REM.

1x Tachibana(surprisingly fun to play with)

RIP BEscha and BArty.  Maybe next year.

This is hardly a cheese team, anything on the previous floors can kill me, and I have to use no more than like two skills before reaching the last floor. Puppeteer active wouldn't be needed if my mult was twice as good, but has other uses in the team as well. Any "better" team would probably have an easier time, but even 49x would be much easier.

Just cleared the one-shot challenge and had the following observations.

-I used Ragnarok Dragon and had to put Scheat on the team in place of my duplicate RagDrag to enter. Scheat is kind of amazing on the team even though her active doesn't work. I honestly might replace Spica with her most of the time.

-Apparently if you go encounter Titania while having a move time modifier, including a debuff, she won't give you the 20-turn time extend. Oof.

-Being able to effortlessly crush Gaia Dragon is really gratifying given how hard he was the first time I fought him. There's the upside of power creep!

-The prize is Jormungandr-Ullr?! Wow, this is waaaay easier than the other means of acquiring him. He's not even that old. Well good, I didn't have one.

it's a weird feeling when you're been wondering for a long ass time why you can't hold all your hakus and then find out that she's the perfect sub for... revo kushi, whom I have.

I like Spirit Hunting Fenrir a LOT and you can probably make just the lead Fenrir work if you can stack hastes like Pandora, Hamal, and Zaerog∞. Be ready to eat hits and use that 6.25x recovery to stall one or two turns occasionally to get your jammer momentum back up, though.

Alternatively, Blazing Fenrir plays just about identically to how old rainbow Fenrir plays, just with more TPA damage, so if you still have an affection for Gainaut and JoJ? as farmable jammer makers that's probably legit, too.

Considering making a Reincarnated Kushinada team just because I have most of the pieces. I've only got two Hakus though. I know 2-3 Hakus and a guard break sub (Reine or Metatron, both of which I have) are traditional, but what goes in the last slot?

I could run Ganesha, but I tend to inherit him a lot so having to juggle him between uses is kind of annoying. Could be Isis to inherit things onto. I guess it could even be another Kushinada of some kind but that seems unnecessary. Is anyone running Reincarnated Kushinada in a similar sub situation that I am, and if so what are you using with her?

Edit: Red Riding Hood almost seems perfect except that her awakenings are pretty trashy if you assume those rows are never going to get used. And I suppose her stats are on the very low side.

I'm not quite running that team, but I'd say split ult 'dandi would work, since she has both 7c and FUA awakenings? RKushi does have amazing damage control though, so it might be a bit unnecessary.

Ooh, that didn't occur to me but it's definitely at least worth testing since I have one finished anyway. A heartmaker of some kind seems useful bordering on necessary and she provides that while also having offensive presence. Lack of time extends and color incompatibility with Haku is unfortunate, but I'll give it a go.

Well floor 4 was interesting.  No leader skills is surprisingly difficult to work with.

Winning team was RHermes/super ult Saras/Motonari/SQ/Andro/friend RKarin.

Third floor scared me because I drew two wood chimerae but I managed to scrape it out and then the two heroes got abused by Karin and Hermes.

while I'm not sure how the numbers turn out, I'd imagine you could make a blue/dark variant if you have a bunch of ryunes (the ult came out) and sonias or something. Less ideal than dark/red probably, but having kushi in on the attack, even if just her sub, could maybe make up for it somewhat idk.

Light monsters with rows, even better if they have water subattributes, but kinda like the norns you don't really need all your subs to have both. Alcyone is the perfect sub to aim for. At the cost of a stricter sub pool (needs that sub-water attribute) and some damage ceiling, you get 1.5x hp multiplier when pairing with an Arondite. I pulled two Arondites and was wondering how to use her, but I only have one Alcyone and like no other subs that fit the template, but maybe you'll have better luck(?). I don't get it either, he's like super popular right now but I don't think he can necessarily clear stuff that other top leads currently can't anyway.

It's fine, we won't see em in NA for a few months anyway.  Could always try rejoining if you feel the itch and just play super casually or something.  It's how I've been doing this(same with GBF) and it's done wonders for my enjoyment.  Little to no progression but having bits of fun here and there which is more important for me.

Just managed to beat Norse Rush on Annihilation with my last batch of stamina before it ends. I've been chipping away at it all weekend and finally finished it off. Of course the reward was basically nothing, but man, it was exciting. That's what I play PAD for. Just the right amount of challenge, at least for me. There's nothing super crazy in it so it was probably easy for people with tier teams, but I had fun.

And the team I used to beat the Norse pantheon? Ragnarok Dragon.  :dragonforce: It's like a goddamn Thor movie up in here except Cate Blanchett isn't wearing a dumb Jack Kirby hat.

Man I want to make him so bad but don't want to deal with the disgusting grind to get him so alas.

I mean, I haven't  been playing much recently ANYWAY, but still, that was always one of my minor side goals.  Go figure I'm actually sort of equipped to use him now too since I have stuff like wedding Scheat.  If I ever remember I have Apollo and raise him to Awoken(do we have Reincarnated Apollo yet?  Is that a thing?) I could use him for an inherit on the big machine dude himself and that'd probably be pretty good too.  Hm...  I wonder what else I could put in there?

Oh, and I suppose this is something to mention.  A thing unworthy of praise but it's about time I finally got this pointless rite done with and began the path to doing all of em eventually.

Keep in mind that the buffed rare monster machine now includes his pieces. That's how I got the last two I was missing.

My team is Orpharion/Pollux/Pollux/RGanesha/Mryei/???

Another Pollux or an RGanesha would be ideal for friend lead but I doubt I'll find one of those.

Hey, does Hikari still play this game?  He had both Polluxes.  I also have one raised but it's the sub ult instead of the lead one.

Oh right, what about the Holy Night Siblings(Christmas Castor/Pollux)?  Would they suffice for you?  I've got that at least.

As for the buffed rare monster machine, I've pulled like 25 times today and gotten exactly  zero of the new inclusions so forgive me for being a bit bitter about that prospect, haha.

Yeah, I saw about a thousand pulls today across three people and saw six or seven Orpharion parts. I pulled two out of 250-300, but got super lucky and they were the exact ones I needed. You might see people getting duplicates and putting them up for trade too, so that could help.

Popcorn leads aren't ideal as partners I don't think. Doing prongs and popcorns and four combos is a little steep.

Then why did you mention Pollux as a friend lead?  Were you thinking of someone else?  Or is there some form I'm forgetting/don't know exists?  Far as I recall there are three Pollux LSs and all three use popcorn.

>L/D, 4x for popcorn, reduces non-light damage
>L/R, 5x for popcorn, 1.3x Atk/RCV for Machines
>Christmas, 5x for popcorn, 1.3x Atk/RCV for Gods/Machines

As for the other things, I'll have to look in my trade requests, yeah.  Completely forgot that existed for a bit somehow despite it being how I got one part myself.

I got the hookup on the missing limbs from someone so I just need to get his face and I can be a partner maybe.  I've gotta plus/skill him but that shouldn't be too bad if I focus on it, which I likely would if I actually managed to get all five pieces.

So you're missing the head? I'll see if I can source an extra head. I've got an extra right leg so maybe someone will give me a head for it.

Cool: Reponse is too long for ingame mail so here:

Gotta evolve and raise my Apollo to Awoken(or Reincarnated if that's a thing that exists which I'd assume is so but I honestly haven't looked at him in a couple years) to inherit on to Orpharion (also need to  evolve another Apocalypse)but for now pending me reconsidering things I'm looking at:

Orph^Apollo/LScheat/Apoc^Apoc/ChristmasCastor&Pollux/LDPollux/friend

Possibly taking out the Christmas twins, adorable as they are, for LMeta^Shining Dragon Knight(or Star Justice inherit maybe) or something since I have no bind clear and the only bindproof cards are any Orpharions otherwise.(she isn't a machine but I have no good options for that otherwise)

E: oh.  I don't...have SDK?  How the heck?  Whatever then haha, I'll figure something out.

Still theorycrafting though.  HP is worryingly low without me plussing the team and getting inherits set but it'll do for now I think.  Need to find a good HP mult lead pair for single player I think, or a shield lead.  I wanted to use Apoc but he also wants L/D matches so he'd be annoying to use with what I have unless I just throw a bunch of other Apocs in and forgo the Apollo bit.

I got a pretty good haul. Six pulls got me three garbages, a Cthuga, an Eschamali (the first Eschamali of any color I've ever owned) and a Gan Ning.

Cthuga seems good, do people use that? What do the teams look like? Probably Urds and Leilans?

Meanwhile, gotta make a Despharion to go with that Eschamali.

Edit: Scrounged up enough stones to do another pull and got... another... Gan Ning.

They have had a Migration function built-in to JP PAD for the longest time to accommodate Hong Kong/Taiwan players. I have zero idea why this doesn't exist for EU/NA or why they can't implement it. Either way, the EU server will cease to exist in a few months regardless of if they do or not.

So are there any other gacha games that ended its natural lifetime and shut down? What's the treatment for those games for people who still want to keep their accounts around? It's suddenly weird to me how gacha games you really don't own anything of the game, if the servers shut down they take everything with them. It's not like games with online content where you can still play the game offline or still own a copy of the game itself.

Have you heard of the works of the magical company square enix?

In general: Fuck you, we got the money. When the servers down, you lose it all. Even if you bought minutes before the reset ends, as far as they're usually concerned it's no problem. Your only way of getting it back is charging back through some other source, in the end. A lot don't even run any real 'whoops everything is fucking busted, go nuts with all these free resources'. It's just... gone.

It sucks, but it's honestly kind of the risk you often run and with games like puzzle and dragons atleast you've honestly atleast had years of playtime to put into it.

Imagine if it was a fresh hopeful game that just couldn't pan out for the company.

After staying away from PAD for so long, I realize I still enjoy playing it. At least, the actual dungeoning part. What I don't like is the grinding. I can't be bothered to be get the evo material to evolve all this stuff. Even getting the reincarnation masks annoy me. Not even getting into the bosses I have to grind up and evolve for awoken evolutions. Those take so long for me to do. They're probably the reason I stopped playing as much.

You can get around a lot of that stuff now if you do it in relatively small volumes. As long as you're not evolving dozens of things you should be able to take advantage of trading and the fact that a lot of stuff drops fully evolved to get the stuff you need with minimal evo materials required.

A Wisedragon enhance would probably help, but even then 200 million is some shit.

Been trying to do Machine Goemon a lot lately. I can get to him with basically all of my stuff up no problem with Ragnarok Dragon, but he just kicks my ass every time. I don't have a followup attack that fits on the team, but even if I did I'm not sure I could fit the column of hearts and still do enough damage. He's a real shit.

Machine Goemon's shtick is a 10 turn water absorb and a resolve, right? You could probably use a Mizutsune Hunter team with whatever not-blue subs and machine killers, but with a weapon series thing assisting your Hunter.

Can't deal water damage if Mizutsune Hunter isn't blue, right?

Just a straight 81x with no bells and whistles seems pretty underwhelming. If I was going to do that I'd try Kushinada first. But since he preemptively blinds and also has resolve there are a required number of turns of dealing with his debuff spam that I'm not sure I can power through with Kushinada. Maybe, given enough tries.

Well if I'm gonna co-op him then I imagine there are lots of possible routes. Co-op Ragnarok Dragons could probably handle him no problem since his damage would be pretty unimpressive with that much HP.

But fair enough, Hunter would probably be a very easy way to handle him. Weapon inherit is cute, I definitely wouldn't have thought of that.

If you have Sheena she can literally solo him due to 7c + phys/machine killer, is what I used for that dungeon. Just take a skill that makes dark and hearts (but no water) to activate a FUA as welland you should be peachy, Cecil/Apoc are ideal since they make also light.

You ever get that feeling of wanting to do something, but not really wanting to do it. I feel that way with PAD. I'm tempted to play, but it feels like eating more food while you have a stomachache. I still like the game, but it seems like it's on a decline and getting back into games after they died off feels bad.

You never realize how burnt out you are on the game until it's gone. When I sold my account, it was like a weight was lifted off my shoulders; I no longer felt obligated to play it after spending so much money on it and I don't miss it at all. I still follow news on the game to see how it changes. I had already felt that PAD was hitting an event horizon when the power creep started to get more and more steep, where difficulty was getting higher not because of puzzle complexity, but because of hugely inflated HP and damage values, as well as putting some puzzles behind gatekeeper units where you were screwed if you didn't have a particular ability or skill on your team.

And looking at PDX's news ticker, I see a ton of updates for JP over the past few months, but they all seem to be new evos and gfes and new holiday/collab events (read: stuff that only really matters if you keep spending money), but I only saw one new descended dungeon in September. It feels like the game has slowed down even more now that I'm not micromanaging the tiniest updates to try to keep myself interested.

I'll be honest, I remember at one point, I thought I had a shot at the making to the latest of latest parts of the game, but idk, somewhere around the machine descends, it just felt like a huge jump, and now everything looks so crazy. I wonder how people feel in JP.

EDIT: I'll be honest though, even with my complaints, I still find the game fun to play at times. I can't bring myself to grind it a ton, but the occasional descend dungeon is still fun. I like Legend Plus as a difficulty. Feels right. Maybe sometime I'll try mythical plus, but maybe after I've had a longer break from the game.

first post of 2018, first post in god knows how many months

very few people know this but i've already put PAD on hold for the past 6 months.

solo play accommodation only started getting good with super awakenings and that was too little too late. huge reliance on whaling which i no longer wish to do due to high saturation of 7/8 star cards.

here's how i feel about PAD's current development entering 6th year plan and project:

* mechanics innovation is still doable on both player side and enemy side. unfortunately the root problem of innovation only benefiting whales hasn't been solved. JP whales like ogre channel, rip_pad, kosuke, and others are the real victors of this new direction and gungho's foray into new card design because they're mostly done with collab cards.

* older things that used to be very rare/high in demand have devolved into mere commodities. trade exacerbated this effect. f2p players will find it more of a chore than the game being fun. whales are unaffected because they can supply themselves easily.

* whales continue to place importance on speedfarming. dungeons like machine hera are now total jokes. 3p cthulhu series? marginally harder. quest challenge dungeons? cheez-it. gungho needs to think carefully about future dungeons and challenges. whales will not find very difficult stuff that difficult, but f2p players or the less fortunate will struggle.

* freebies will only take you so far.

I don't know how much I'd still play, but something is that drives me nuts is the awoken ults. It was annoying, but tolerable when I had get dungeon drops and evolve them for a card. But now there are all these cards that require me to make an awoken ult of something, then feed it off to something else.  I hate those so much.

Yeah, I figured you did. I didn't see on JP, granted, I barely show up there. Though what commodities do you think would be better off rare? I find the trading mechanic too slow and clunky to be super useful. I'd like to be able to place more trades up at once.

I find that I kind of enjoy doing Awakening evolutions since trading, but I realize that my circumstances aren't usual.

Every Saturday morning I'm incidentally in a room with 4-5 people who play PAD and doing big trading arrangements involving a bunch of people to get everyone what they need is fun. I got my Ney evolved in just a few days as a result, but it can be a brutal slog if you don't have a setup like that.

The issue with Zeus Verse is that it's either 100% HP or nothing. So it's either getting lucky with no preemptive damage, wasting a yog active, or dedicating a slot (assuming no stall will be possible) to an active heal like healer LMeta or Amaterasu.

Post by: The Greatest Dog on April 16, 2018, 05:38:43 AM
It primarily seems like she's just a damage stick and emergency bind clear for whatever team you like using most. Cotton is seen as more valuable because of that FUA, but Ney can easily OHKO a bunch of stuff on her own because those damage awakenings are a bit nuts.

The one exception, of course, is Dark Ney for Fenrir because she's one of the few units that produces jammers. So that's cool. Light Ney can fit on Edward's crew as well if you need some dark coverage, and she can pick your HP up back above 50% if you really need that.

The real question is: does your primary team have trouble killing things? If yes, consider Ney and turn her into a monster that does more damage than Cotton and the rest of the team combined. (https://imgur.com/akxZ75q)

Anubis gets a chunky multiplier to both attack and recovery whenever a skill is used, and Gunma has a 1 turn CD for all your Ascooby Doobis needs.

The Gunma ult has more HP than before, which is cool.

Though if you have a Tardis, that's basically superior in every way.

Anubis gets a chunky multiplier to both attack and recovery whenever a skill is used, and Gunma has a 1 turn CD for all your Ascooby Doobis needs.

The Gunma ult has more HP than before, which is cool.

Though if you have a Tardis, that's basically superior in every way.

I forgot about that. I never used Anubis, but is skill that provides pretty much nothing but the activation requirement that useful? I'd think you might want a skill that has more utility at the cost of a slightly higher cooldown.

For a good while anubis teams ran double Diaochans which is kind of what Tardis does except with 1 more second and clearing locks... at the cost of a whole slot, that is.
And for Diablos the activation is pretty useful, since it's both 9x for softer pings/bigger burst, and it turns his RCV multiplier on giving him a fighting chance in terms of healing back from gravities or stalling lower stuff (even more tasty with Tardis' triple team RCV awakenings, yum)

Hexazion is really fun on Mythical.  The floors leading up to him are boring but the fight is really neat. I wonder if they took some hints from Tower of Saviors for this(and Gilles Legato, etc, relatedly)?

If anything the annoying thing about Hexazion is that you need all four drops to evolve him, and non-annihilation has enough of a drop rate drop ( :V ) that I didn't get anything in three runs. At least the augites have 99 MP cost so you can trade them.

Well, their team cost is 99 but they sell for 100 MP so no go on the trading.

It's a tad more hard for me since I either deal a pittance of damage or I go with anublos and the team members that don't deal short amounts of damage whack directly into the null (perhaps I could change a dragon killer on Ideal :V )

I'm used to dealing like no damage so it's fine for me haha.  My favored lead pair atm is a 4.5/7.5(RKarin/Clea) so it's not like I'm breaking any damage records unless I get freakish skyfalls under Mercuria's effect or something.

Been too busy with other tasks to fight him more though since I can only do Mythical reliably(low damage is fine for a medium-long battle, but when the enemy suddenly has 400 million HP(I think?)[M+] it's a bit much to handle for the extended haul, especially with the increased damage. 

(Said other tasks being entirely revolving around gathering and evolving dragons for my shiny new-ish pink haired dragon caller girl since she'll FINALLY give me a herostyle active in dark because Pandora is a jerk who refused to ever grace my box despite me acquiring all four others. Just a little more now...)

You can also get those from A2 - since I need HP+ latents from there for Hexazeon, I'll see if I can trade you some if you need.

I haven't actually played A2 since I don't really like the Arenas myself but I'll keep it in mind.  If I get some HP+ from my own runs of PreDRAs whenever I get a chance at such we can exchange and both get what we want!

Edit:  Upon inspecting Hermes' Super Awakenings I need Dragon Killers instead.  Apparently he can get Void Piercer!  It's a long shot but if I can pull it off I might just have something here...

In the end, I have both facet silk and the valentines of the cat one, so honestly i'm good. Resets treated me... ehhh, though. Only pandora and Hathor.

Resets were great for me even though only one of them is new(and thus only the one is relevant)

Yang Guifei from the 500 which would be great...if I hadn't JUST gotten her a little while ago from one of those gift machine things.

Indra dupe number who-knows, but hey.  Maybe I'll finally make Awoken Indra once I see if it's worth the hassle, I dunno.

Most importantly, I FINALLY got one of the mainline(IE non-DBDC machine) Dragonbounds, and it's Saria who is very relevant to my interests since I do sometimes still play with Tsubaki and might play a little more with Leilan someday.  (I mean, I already use Karin a ton so what's one more Chinagirl?)

A Tri God Mask and an ult Satan(the latter as a drop from the boss) I believe?

Plus a stone for clearing of course like all the other stages give.

Nothing too important since we all got 6 masks for free from the Hexazeon Stream Challenge.

Also don't feel bad about damage issues.  He has 666 million HP.  It's dumb.

666 million HP?

Pft. (https://imgur.com/a/s6vpFCy)

So, if you have to make compromises to your durability to increase your attack, go for it. Take whatever glass cannon lead you have, pack some spare delays for Hades or whatnot, and use all the spare turns you get from the enemies' 3 and 2 turn timers.

Kinda feels like classic PAD in that regard, using Sakuya or Ra against regular old Satan.

Busted out the Sacchi bros for the first time in a while and oops I instantly died on turn zero.

Well, back to the drawing board! It's blue so I'm sure I can find a team configuration with more HP. Does anyone happen to have a Reincarnated Sacchis I can use for this? I have a nice friend one but they're not a best friend so I can't re-attempt very often.

Alright, so with the help of FF's Sachis I have a team that can technically get to Satan (there are quite a few close shaves that leave me at 1000 HP and quite a few barely-kills, which makes stalling very difficult) and technically hit him with a 4,096x multiplier... But I don't have a Wild Wind so I can't actually damage him, and the combo setup is very RNG-based since the Sachi max modifier is pretty demanding.

If someone who has Sachis and Wild Wind wants to try to do this some time this weekend I think we could clear it easily. Not that there's much of a point in doing that, since the rewards are basically nothing, but it might be fun.

Where are you using Wild Wind?  I hope it isn't for Satan Void himself who has a void shield and not an absorb.
Title: Re: Sakura and Dragons Thread 33 - But it's not like we'll ever get her in NA, so.
Post by: The Greatest Dog on May 24, 2018, 07:07:18 AM
You have two options for Satan Void - if you make exactly zero combos on the opening turn, he won't put up the 40 million damage shield but will instead skill delay you by 99 turns. (He'll also erase any buffs you have)

The other involves fighting him with that gross 40 million damage void and I don't actually know if there's a good way to fight him normally.

If you have a way to set up your board without making any combos, you could probably go for a OHKO. With the "bare" minimum of 12 water orbs (four combos), wood, light, and dark matches, my Bros alone deal 60 million damage (https://imgur.com/FzJYXDU).

That ends up being effectively 400,000,000 from them alone factoring devil killer latents and if you use their Kiri assist to turn Satan into a fire enemy.

Charging the assist might be difficult, though. If you're hella cheeky, Mythril Edge can give some breathing room exclusively on the first floor, halving damage taken and quashing your damage output. (http://www.puzzledragonx.com/en/monster.asp?n=1713) Horrible HP, though.

Revo Karin is probably the best candidate for using any spare Devil Killer latents, if you have them. After limit breaking and using the 7c Super Awakening, she does 170,000,000 damage -before- latents or Kiri (https://imgur.com/asucT95).
(Scratch that, Blue Ney can also use devil killer latents and I'm 99% certain you have one, heh.)

I always forget about the distinction between "shield" and "absorb". Ugh.

Wait, is that seriously how he works? He gives you a choice but one of the options secretly makes him invincible and the other doesn't? Ugh... I should have expected no less from the Prince Of Lies I suppose.

I'm awful at setting up boards for next turn, that's a skill I have never developed, but I'll have to give it a shot tonight. That might not be TOO hard. Hopefully.

Post by: Zengar Zombolt on May 24, 2018, 06:32:08 PM
I wouldn't say he's exactly invincible, after all he doesn't delay you if you pick the time delay so you can pop a VDP-enabling active and murder via full activation of your chosen team. It's a bit of extra work, though, with the only Devil Killer VDPs being Pixel Kyo Kusanagi and Pixel Cloud, so you'd either have to go with those, latents, or 7c via Vney or Yusuke.

Pixels were the first to defeat Damage Void shields with the Awakening, but some others can get them as Super Awakenings now.  I got one on Hermes for eventual attempts at Valten for example(no good for your Sachibros plan, but just as an example).

The amount of VDP being thrown around as Super Awakenings is kinda cool. Ares, Hermes, Artemis, Apollo, and Persephone, the Ripper Dragons (Tornado Holy Dragon, etc), the Cosmic Annihilation trio (Azathoth, etc).

A few of them are more useful (Apollo and Tornado Holy Dragon being Healer typed means they can pick up Dragon Killers for Yog-Sothoth in Arena 3) but it's still much better than Lightning and Cloud being the only viable VDPs.

For what it's worth, the revealed characters are:

-Nicol Bolas, arguably the main villain. He's a scheming ancient dragon wizard and will definitely be black/red or black/blue. In Magic he's all three (black, red, and blue) so I imagine he'll be Chinese-like, probably with a three-color board change and leader skill activation.

-Chandra Nalaar, one of the main heroes. She's a fire mage and has basically no other traits or aspects. She'll definitely be red, will probably make red, and will probably need a lot of red.

-The Skyship Weatherlight, which is a flying boat. It will be white and probably will have a rainbow leader skill and/or active. It might be an equipment.

Honestly more than anything else I'm really curious to see what the filler enemies in the dungeon are going to be...

FINALLY cleared Star Treasure Of The Night Sky just now. I don't really understand how the angels work, do they just have incredibly high defense or is there some other weird effect I don't understand going on? I used a Guard Break awakening against them and it didn't even scratch them. Does it count as a status?

I finally cracked white Metatron with Sonia Clea using sub-attribute attacks and Diena enhance (since Mercuria is, of course, the one Wisedragon I don't own).

This is probably a dumb question, but when Diena says "Dark attribute ATK x5 for 1 turn" does it literally mean dark damage is enhanced? I didn't notice before now that it's worded differently than say a Norse enhance ("Dark & Light attribute cards ATK x2 for 3 turns"). I expected Diena to enhance the blue damage dealt by all of my blue/black monsters but I guess it doesn't work that way? Woof. Need that Mercuria...

They have 20 million defense and 100 million HP. It's rather hard to take them down unless you have a dedicated God Killer or just a massive attack multiplier.

Attribute enhances only affect damage dealt through that color, yeah. It's a bit different from the old Greek leader skills that were like, "Fire and Light stats up" or whatnot, where they boosted off-color attacks, too.

I had trouble with the Starry Night thing too.  Once I found out the angels had such astronomical defense I brought in Ishtar for my Sonia Fio team and (after grinding her skill back up because I got a terrible first Fio board) just let her take care of that for me (I forgot I own Balboa whoops) and the rest of the team finished the job.

The fact that the Metatrons have no status shields is a massive blessing.

My GF rolls were garbage(dupe Wukong from the freebie which I suppose is good because I could make his Awoken/Reincarnated form I guess...?

One normal roll after I gathered the stones for it gave me Creuse dupe #...4 I think?  3-5 I believe.

Either way that's 3-5 more Creuse pulls than anyone wants or needs.  Stupid Dark Souls knights.

I did trade for Uruka before PAD Academy went away so I suppose that's something anyway, though she's ATTRIBUTE absorb instead of DAMAGE like her normal form from the Heroine REM is so the usefulness is more limited. 

More importantly though, Uruka is cute and that's what matters!

The best advice I can give is not to chase endgame.  Find something you enjoy and just mess around.  Much less stressful.

Also find some way to seal your bank account if you're at risk of issues and are the spending type in the first place.  Nothing is worth it if you aren't fully prepared to deal with the very real risk of getting nothing, same as every other gacha game.

There are three odd "endgame" things now that you shouldn't pursue unless you have MAD stamina to spare: Alt. Arena (where DQ Hera's preemptive is 130,000), Arena 4, and 3P Dragon Rush.

Everything else is the game has been getting more and more reasonable as stats improve and cards get better awakenings.

I got two Lilianas! Might as well start the dupe train early, wouldn't be a collab if I didn't pull five copies of one card.

Probably going to use Monster Exchange to get one of the rarer monsters if I don't pull any. I like most of them, so probably just Jhoira because she's blue.

So ff, got any thoughts on Karn? I think it's funny that he went from an extremely universal card that slots no-brain into every deck in Magic to an extremely niche jammer lead in PAD...

Post by: commandercool on June 25, 2018, 05:35:06 PM
I definitely don't use mine as a lead much anymore, he's more of a stunt lead than anything. If I do use him then it's paired with something else. So no need to raise yours as anything particular, but he is a great sub, so I definitely recommend using him.

Karn has 3 of those sexy 7c awakenings so if you assist over his relatively short 11 CD skill, he can still be an incredibly versatile murder-everything sub!

Using him as a lead, though... That's a challenge, since you need 7 jammers to fully activate. You'd probably need two Fenrir Viz to make the most of him.

I didn't realize at first how weird Belzenlok is. He shields you but also reduces your attack when you match a poison? That's interesting, I can't remember any other leader skill that works that way. Seems kinda bad, but interesting.

10x with no poisons, 5x and 50% damage reduction with. Seems interesting though the Devil restriction is annoying.  At the very least he is a pretty ok poison team enabler since he's literally Fenrir but for poison orbs.  I'm gonna try to find time to raise/skill one and maybe I'll finally evo/ult that Hel I've had for a while...

Kinda feel like the real killer is the lack of RCV multiplier for a lead that wants you to poison yourself. The least he could do is provide you some hearts. But in Magic he draws you cards in exchange for dealing damage to you (and you're not fully in control of how many cards, so he's a bit dangerous to play) so it makes sense that he makes you hurt yourself I guess...  :D

(Of course beating the OSC just nets a HephDra, the dungeon for the other thing gets sent to your mailbox if you beat the OSC before it closed.)

Saw it, had 70 stamina twenty minutes before it was going to expire, shrugged and did the Magic collab again. I guess I could have checked the limited dungeon schedule that conveniently exists now, but that's still an awfully harsh time frame.

Borma itself is neat enough, I suppose. "Farmable" Damage Absorb Null, while being a HELLA glass cannon lead.

X900 for matching five attacking colors and leaving <=6 orbs on the board? Sheeshus.

Definitely so. D.Iza's wild ride frustrated me a lot before I worked out a good way through it with my current team. I imagine if I didn't have Mito on 'make hel stop breathing' duty, I'd feel much the same.

Without that poison skyfall, blessedly it wasn't that bad besides adjusting for the dual gravities. It felt a lot more annoying than hard though.

Finally got one of the rares from the Magic collab! It's Karn, easily the one I wanted the least, but it's much better than a fifth Liliana. Can't really do much with Karn, but his bonkers awakenings mean he can probably find a home somewhere eventually.

Edit: Bought the special bargain set and also got Vraska (and another Liliana because of course)!

Pretty happy with her, she's my favorite character of any of the PAD rares and seems good and fun. And I think I have decent subs for her.

Well. Got Jhoira. Though, this puts me at somewhat of a tricky five-way crossroad.

Option one: Keep Jhoira as is and use her as a 7x6 lead. Not terribly exciting, but as a lead she is pretty much better than my other 7x6 options Bradley and Aten.

Option two: Use Jhoira as an assist. A version of Odindora's skill that can be used as an assist? Whoa. With how prevalent awoken skill binds are in A4 and AA, this might be useful.
Or I could use regular Odin's assist like a normal person.

Option three: Trade Jhoira, two Skulds and Cotton for Nicol Bolas to use as a lead. Cool dood. I can probably combo well enough to make the most of his leader skill.

Option four: Trade for Nicol Bolas and use him as an assist for Fenrir. Unbindable Fenrir with a void damage active? UNF.

Option five: Trade Jhoira, Blue Odin, and two Cottons for Karn. Niche leader that probably isn't all that, and will never find any friends side from commandercool who has him? Yeah. But he's a jammer lead, so I have to keep the idea in my head.

What a dilemma.

That was fast. I didn't think you would have a place for him in your teams, but I guess with 8x damage he can fit wherever he wants.

I have a lot of resources just sitting around, isn't hard to max stuff. Decided to max Karn just because he's cool and I might find a use for him eventually. Although I spent a toooon of resources of the Vraska team I put together yesterday so that burned off a lot of the excess...

I pulled the trigger and got myself a Karn. Didn't use those Cottons anyways.

Though, uh, I didn't think I'd be competing for your Best Friend team slot, heh. He's fun and hits like a monstrous truck, and I'm sure there are other light leads that could appreciate a tricolor light/heal/jam board that also fully restores your HP, not withstanding that free 8x damage.

Made mistakes, rolled MtG again, got Chandra.  I might almost have some sort of lame fire farm team at this point since I already have Chad/Sado from Bleach and can probably cobble some other stuff together if I put my head to work.

I have no idea what content I could run that would be relevant to me where one would be GOOD, but I suppose having a team like this a few years late is better than not at all?

What do you guys think of a team that runs a Weatherlight assist on every member to get five extra enhances of every color? Seems kinda useful maybe, especially on a 7x6 lead (ironically Jhoira). Would want them unskilled since the Weatherlight skill isn't especially good, but I think I'm gonna try it. Got four Weatherlights so far.

Post by: Jq1790 on July 06, 2018, 09:41:26 PM
Giving up the utility of different skills sounds like a high price unless you are running a team where inherited skills don't matter much imo.

It also depends on what options for other Assist Evo mons you might have to pick from or other factors.

Might be good if all you need is a little more passive damage boosting though and having all your non-heal orbs enhanced makes for good conversion fodder.
Title: Re: Sakura and Dragons Thread 33 - But it's not like we'll ever get her in NA, so.
Post by: commandercool on July 07, 2018, 02:44:39 AM
I don't use assists suuuper often except for certain "lock and key" scenarios (damage void/color absorb negation) or assisting monsters with copies of themselves for the stats and cooldown reduction protection. I would rather have the consistency of not having my skills overcharge most of the time. Which is obviously the risk with a bunch of Weatherlights, letting them overcharge would be a pretty significant problem, but the cooldown is long enough that I hope it wouldn't be a huge issue.

Right now I'm planning on trying this on my Jhoira team, which has a lot of short-cooldown skills. Worst case if they overcharge I can pop the one I need in an emergency scenario first and charge it with the haste from all the other Weatherlight skills I guess. Probably not very practical in, you know, practice, but I'm definitely going to try it. And seeing a 7x6 board of all enhanced orbs sounds neat.  :D

Speaking of Jhoira, what's the best friend lead for her? Seems like pairing two Jhoiras in kind of a waste since I don't really need to be given a 7x6 board twice, and the partner would ideally be blue, have combo-based or red+blue match-based damage, and have some kind of survivability boost. Nothing comes to mind weirdly despite how much blue I play.

Can someone explain to me how Zapan and contemporaries work? Specifically, what's their drop rate in each tier of their dungeon and what are those "rare stone" things that are associated with them? I got Zapan's dungeon but I haven't opened it yet. Would like to have one, do I need to beat him in his Annihilation dungeon or is it possible/plausible to get him in the other tiers?
Title: Re: Sakura and Dragons Thread 33 - But it's not like we'll ever get her in NA, so.
Post by: The Greatest Dog on July 07, 2018, 03:54:43 AM
Seems like when the starter dragon evolutions come out, you can trade the spirits for one of their evolution materials.

Aside from that, they make pretty neat units (dual Zapan is a 4/196/1 lead for mono-water). Annihilation has a 100% drop rate, Mythical+ is reported at 40% and I'm pretty sure Mythical is near non-existent.

Grab one to evolve Plessie, grab two if you have a bunch of Pys, or grab, uh, 27 to use King Tans.

Edit: Today, I learned that there are far more options to trade for Karn than just Cottons and Blue Odins. I had, as potential candidates: Ryune, Kanna, Kaede, Scheat, Eschamali, two Dark Metatron, two Baldins, and three Gremory.

Huh.

Woof, managed to crack Zapan's dungeon in my second-to-last attempt before his dungeon expired. It took me many tries to figure out (puzzle out, if you will) how to handle the dungeon. I use double Vraska leads.

Turns out the answer was "be as reckless as possible" in every single scenario. Pop Runelis to kill Spica on turn one, blast through everything, use a shield right before the boss, and just try to do as much damage as possible every turn against him because I'll either chop off 60% of his health or overshoot and not damage him at all, which is no big loss. The only real trick was to use a Sarutobi's Secret Scroll on my Vraska and a Kralice Rapier on my friend Vraska to get 100% poison resist so I wouldn't have to fuck around making sure I have skills up for Hamal.

Even though the timer almost screwed me I gotta admit it made things fun. Racing against time sure is a way to increase the stakes.

Yeah there are still a lot of unique gems, but at least they stack now. There's a lot of stuff that I was just throwing away that I'll be converting to gems instead.  As quality-of-life improvements go, how about a "convert to gems" option on the dungeon completion screen?

(sees CCool got Makoto) Oh good now my stones are safe since Im basically guaranteed never to get him myself.  Thanks!

(Ill have to mess with him later since he seems fun on paper to me and is compatible with Sakuya or, better yet probably, BTachibana)

Yeah, super happy I got him. He seems great. Also three copies of Aigis, I guess she's this collab's Liliana.

Is it just me or are the persona equips legit great? King Frost in particular looks excellent, heal row is very good and I've wished I had a someone on my Blonia team with it for a while. The long cooldowns mean they're basically risk-free.  Jack Frost in multiples seems great too. I will be making many of all of these.

King Frost giving two turns of consecutive full HP restoration will help out with Blue Sonia's massive bulk, as well.

I gotta get myself some of those Agidyne skill cards...

I also want Morgana for collection reasons, so I'm going to need a crazy number of skill cards all things considered...

They'll be what, 5* as Skill Cards?  If you can prepare some evo materials(I don't care what kind) of a matching rarity I can gather some too since I'm planning to run the dungeon to skill the boss and stuff as the collab goes since Justine&Carloine seem like a pretty nice card to have in the box for the future.

I dunno how much 3p I'll run since I'm not reeeeally an Annihilation level player because I suck, but if I luck into Blank Cards I'll hook you up.

Cool. I'll definitely trade you stuff for them. They seem reasonably common, I have three so far. Although maybe I'm just lucky.

Scratch the above, I went and drained my stocked stones because Makoto was fun to play and I wanted one and now if I even log in it'll probably be a miracle.

I don't learn, I guess.

e: I decided to try and level at least the kings I had for evo so SOMEONE could use them, did so, turns out the cloak is not tradable.  I will assume the other Skill Cards are the same since I dont think other Assist Evo cards can be traded either now that I think about it.

Fun times.  The Blank Cards are though.

e2:  Previous poor mood having subsided I'm back in the saddle today.  Since the actual assist evo'd cards can't be traded, do people want to set up trades for blank cards or the mons to evolve with them?  Just let me know here and if/when I have time/stamina I'll gladly farm some stuff up and we can arrange for trades and the like.  I have a couple of blanks and like 4 King Frosts in my inventory atm that can use homes as-is.

I'm looking for blank cards personally. Managed to get five on the first day but none have dropped since then. Ideally I'd like 20-ish overall but that's probably overkill.

If you aren't, spam 3p.  They can drop on every floor but the last there I believe, while they can only drop from the boss floor in the 1p/2p versions.

I do have two onhand if you want em though, as well as the spare King Frosts I didnt convert.  (he does not drop on 3p btw)

e: If you want the blank cards I have, I can put trades up.  Im not asking for anything specific, Ill just out evo mats on the list so they can be claimed fast.  I know you wanted em, Commander, but what about you, FF?  You were making Agidyne cards right?  If more people want em Ill split what I get.

I would certainly like some, yes. If you ever want anything at some point let me know and I'll see if I can get it for you in return.

Oof, the announced KoF buffs seem... pretty significant
I'm glad I never sold Mai since she seems to become a potential Diablos sidegrade like Jhoira is

No worries on that, Ill put a trade up for some random evo stuff and just throw whatever at me, no big deal.

e: Bought the stone/Persona roll bundle, got Yu.  I'm kinda salty about it.  Today has just been a Wrong Luck day all around though, since I did one pull on the Godfest machine and got Raijin.  Wrong one GungHoooo

I hate this game sometimes.

One non-dupe and it's Caladbolg who I have no idea what to do with other than glare at for being useless.

Dupe Durga(sold my unevo'd one when I got it.  Should really sell this one too since I'm probably never going to use her.)
Dupe Sumire(...I guess I can make the Myosotis Magatama?  It's an awful lot of work for something that is probably not going to do anything for me most of the time though so meh.)
Dupe Horus(See notes on Durga)

Like...really game?

(then while I am ecstatic for him I have a friend pull Reeche(I hate that romanization btw, it's dumb), Escha, DKali, and Gilgamesh in that order.  Happy as I am for him, seeing that after my rolls is...distressing to say the least.)

Ugh, I just got an evolved Venus and my fifty billionth dupe Green Odin. Oh well, I hit my 1500 day login the same day Persona ended and snagged P5 Protagonist so I guess I got lucky somewhere else.

I got the P4 one during the crapfest that was tha collab (I really should have just stayed put and left it alone but noooo I had to go chasing 2.5% like some kinda moron) and it tilted me a fair bit.

Oh right, I comoletely forgot to get more, but did you need anymore Blank Cards or King Frosts, ccool? 

(also sorry FF; I was supposed to try to get mats for Agidyne things for you too IIRC but completely flaked. ;_;)

That's fine, I just wanted to know because I can finally free up a bunch of spaces knowing this, so thanks for the update~

I've got like 6 King Frosts or something and 2 blanks hogging up my already cramped inventory so I'm always up for emptying out chaff I find out I no longer need.

Ooh.  I have the Meimei one as well as all three Norns.  (The only form in which Skuld has come home, much to my dismay)

I also have a few of the Eikoh larger figures, like GOdin and both forms of Claire.

While we're here, I've been enjoying PAD a lot lately. The more consistent flow of stones is nice, and I have a few friends locally who have picked it up lately so co-opping with them is fun. I spend like a billion stones on the Fate collab and got only a single rare, being Gilgamesh who I think is easily the least interesting, but I'll do more and hopefully pull somebody else before it's over.

Post by: Jq1790 on February 02, 2019, 04:19:00 PM
Ive been suoer casual lately but Ive got a fair few great things myself, especially during the GH Collab 10stone REM.  Pulled 2 of the animated cards from that set plus finally got Riche (Reeche, but that spelling is lame so I and my friends call her Riche/Riiche) who is absolutely dumb haha.

Fate, meanwhile, was not so kind.  If I got another tradable for her I was gonna grab Saber, but Id have to get rid of my only Sylvie to do it and I dont want to so Im left one short.  Such is life I suppose.

Im just glad I didnt get Gil myself because I haaaaate him as a character.  (though hed serve as my last fodder to get the one I REALLY want so I guess hed be fine to get just to send him off to die.)

Post by: commandercool on February 02, 2019, 05:57:33 PM
Reeche has been my partner lead with Jhoira since she came out, I recommend that combo. It is gross.

Yeah, I don't mind trading away Gilgamesh and I have exactly enough to get Saber with mostly duplicates and him, but even though she's blue I don't have an obvious use for her. I think Shirou is the one I want the most, since I looove equipment and his whuppin' stick form is great.

Definitely regretting not having traded for some of the Fate/Stay Night cards. Turns out Shirou is super good and I wish I had one now...

Do we have any idea when we might be getting the Magic the Gathering collab back? It feels like it should be any time now but I've been thinking that for a few months. I'd love to pick up a second Jhoira and keep saving my stones but it just isn't coming back around.

Not any time soon if at all.  It wasnt revealed during the last major stream and there are other collabs ahead of it in line(CROWS x WORST which is prob staying JP only, DMC5, and so on) , so don't hold your breath.

Ha ha is there a Devil May Cry collab coming up? I have a buddy who's been playing the new one and haaaates the Adam Driver guy and mentions it all the time, now he'll get to play with him in PAD too.  :D

Yup!  During the kast anniversary announcement stream it got announced, though its ETA is currently unknown.

Also some pantheons are getting "super Reincarnations", so far just Haku and the just-announced Bastet atm.  Vastly changed LSs and at least a big numbers difference.  Ill post the details if desired.
