Farmable Monster Points and PreDRA Infestation

Mythical-Plus coop dungeons grant us the opportunity to farm a guaranteed PreDRA Fire 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.

Noah Tournament Ranking Dungeon Strategies

I thought we would have had more time to rest and relax after the last ranking dungeon, but the North American GungHo staff may have been affected by the 3 minute stamina buff and are firing out content left right and centre. Regardless, the Noah Tournament Ranking Dungeon is the fourth in the ranking dungeon series and has the No Dupes restriction. No Dupes has become easier to manage as the restrictions only apply to your own team and not your friend’s leader. This means you can still bring matching leaders and has eased team building and theory crafting. However, with ranking dungeons, we are not simply concerned with finishing the dungeon, but with scoring as high as possible. I failed to achieve the top 1% from the Cauchemar Tournament, but averaged top 2% over the course all 3 ranking dungeons to date. As such I wish to share my thoughts and strategies to help my fellow Puzzle and Dragoners in achieving a new personal best. Continue reading Noah Tournament Ranking Dungeon Strategies
