Mythical-Plus coop dungeons grant us the opportunity to farm a guaranteed PreDRA (aka 500 MP) for 50 stamina opens up the potential to slowly reach the 300k Monster Point goal needed to buy a MP Dragon. Furthermore, with the introduction of PreDRA Infestation, all players have the chance to acquire Latent Tamadras and modest amounts of Monster Points. As such, I want to analyse these 2 mediums separately to better explain my thoughts. I am going to make the assumption that your average REM roll is worth 5,000 MP (thus each stone = 1,000).
PreDRA Infestation is a new hourly dungeon that gives players an easy way to farm Latent Tamadras and Monster Points. The dungeon is split into 99 and 50 stamina difficulties and both have their pros and cons.
The topic of which Monster Point Dragon to buy is on the forefront of many player’s minds as it is a large investment. Furthermore, as the game progresses and we accumulate more duplicates to sell, new players will be reaching the elusive 300k MP needed to make their first purchase. However, one should not be rash in decimating their monster box as these powerful dragons need the right subs to function properly. If you are having second thoughts or doubts about selling a particular monster, the answer is probably no and you must exercise patience and simply wait. Furthermore, your MP Dragon team does need an investment in levels, skill ups, and pluses to be truly powerful. Lastly, they require 10 million experience to max level, 99 team cost, and have challenging evolution materials.
I have omitted any farmable subs as those can be acquired over time. If you are missing many key subs required to run their team effectively, it may be wise to to delay purchasing as you may be running a sub-par line up otherwise. For a more expansive list that includes farmable monsters, refer HERE.
is perhaps the king of farming leads as he offers an unconditional 25x multiplier to fire gods. can either focus on rows or two prong attacks to quickly mow down bosses. However, he somewhat falters in the highest level content due to a less dynamic sub pool, no bind immunity, and a weak active that places heavy emphasis on strong subs. Lastly, is an easy way to score in the top 10% (or even 1%) of ranking dungeons.
Fastest farming lead in the game
Unconditional 25x ATK multiplier for fire gods
2.25x RCV for fire gods
Capable of scoring in the top 10% of ranking tournaments with ease
2-turn haste active places higher demand on ideal subs
Subs should almost always be orb changers as you effectively only have 4 actives
Can be bound (which is becoming more of an issue with pre-emptive leader binds)
Very REM dependent
Key Subs to Own
Fire rows are critical for large burst and the 3 Ares are not a typo as you can run up to 3 with success.
Now that the weekend has passed and with it my favourite descends to farm on 10x, I have turned my morning stamina to playing Thoth & Sopdet 5×4 from the coin dungeons in hopes of acquiring the 1% light resist Tamadra . 5×4 descends are much more challenging than their regular counterparts as you face the same bosses/mechanics, but on a smaller board. This automatically cuts down on viable leaders to use, but you can find a handy reference list I created HERE of strong 5×4 leads.
10x descends is quite hectic and I may be going a little overboard at the moment. I am actually closing my eyes and seeing the plus egg drop and that wonderful *ding* noise along with using different fingers to prevent fatigue. Perhaps it is the sign of madness, but I have also farmed ~1,000 plus eggs across both accounts over the course of these 2 days. After the weekend, things will begin to slow down again as my 2 favourite dungeons, Kanetsugu and Hera-Sowilo, end their rotation (however, does return next Sunday).
I chose to play and because they offer a wonderful amount of rank exp along with 5-6 plus eggs on average per run. I prefer this over Zeus or the other push button farm dungeons because I lack a push button team and it feels more wasteful due to less plus eggs and no collateral benefits. For more information, feel free to check out my chart detailing plus egg rates and exp/stamina in the more popular descends HERE.
Hopefully everyone still has their sanity and is reaching their plus egg goals/target.
Scarlet Descended is still the scariest descend available and for good reason. She grants hardly any monster experience due less floors than other rogue descends as well as each floor giving less levels. This results in your team being severely underleveled by the time you reach the 7 million health boss. This is where plus eggs comes into play as they provide their full benefit regardless of monster level. Furthermore, the dungeon is very unforgiving as most things can execute you if you fail to deal enough damage along with very large health pools.
I chose to go with my Umisachi Yamasachi team because the later floors become easier due to colour preference of water > red. However, this made floor 2 and 3 very difficult as you face high health green monsters and your team is very low level. My general strategy was: Continue reading U&Y vs Scarlet Descended→
Thoth & Sopdet 5×4 is one of the descends available through the coin dungeon shop that offers us the opportunity to farm the 1% light resist Latent Tamadra . These Latent Tamadra become invaluable at higher levels of play as it grants the opportunity to survive attacks that would kill us otherwise. 1% resistances prevent death via 100% gravity attacks and it is worthwhile to have a monster with the full rainbow resistance to be immune to all 100% elemental attacks.
However, acquiring these can be tricky as most players do not have 20k Monster Points readily available and 5×4 boards can be challenging due to fighting the same challenging descend on a smaller board. The boss’s health and damage remain unchanged and many conventional teams will struggle with 20 orbs. Continue reading 5×4 Latent Resist Farming Teams→
