Okay, so I just dipped my toes into the HMS Prelude for the first time today with my 5* Verica (lv 80, 45 MC). I have MUB/leveled Phoenix, Fully leveled WP, MUB Ark Voyager (4.3.4), and have 16/16 Staff dojos and 30/30 Flame shrines. I think the Slime one is around 8 or 9 too. We absolutely destroyed HMS, and I didn't need to heal that much. I don't even think I was touched aside from the mandatory hits. Am I really ready for HMS on normal mode? Will I be noped out if I don't have the 5.3.0 weapon?

Yea, I've noticed that they have nerfed the drop rate for 5* anything now. used to get it within 20-30 turns, now it's 50+ and no drop. I might drop this game if that's the case. Wished I could give away my account.
if anything, i wasnt getting any 5* in the first 3 months... im getting some since Xmas... for me they improved! XD

pure probability

I have a MUB HMS solely through pubbing with Verica. Unlike DPS, 4.3.0 is better for Verica/V! Hilde because the additional heal is much more significant than the healing potency/extra stats to Strength. You’re just better able to save people with an additional emergency heal. In terms of yours stats, considering people have been clearing HMS with 1-2UB Phoenix Verica’s before Void trade shop moonstones were a thing, I think you’re more than prepared stats-wise at least

Is there a certain point when players will stop avoiding me like the plaugue when I join a lobby?

Background: I installed Dragalia Lost day one; was told I was bad and should feel bad for not pulling any 5* adventurers/dragons on my initial roll; uninstalled; then reinstalled a few days ago because of the news article about Nintendo not allowing Cygames to charge players too much. It sounded like paradise compared to my previous gacha game KHUx.

I keep hearing about saving until the next Gala Event (?) so I'm just working with what I have; a light team (Odette/Ryozen/Luca/Felicia) with a might total of 8500 and multiple Dragon Arcanum equipped, Player Lvl. 42 and Facility Lvl. 146.

Should I accept my fate as a curse brought onto all players for any Expert lobby I join and continue to save my 18 Summon Tickets and 11k Wyrmite for the next Gala?

I mean, you could share Verica’s HP to be sure, but I can’t see a way that it wouldn’t be decently more than enough - it sure sounds like you’re absolutely set to me.

The print, those buildings (minus even the slime), that weapon, 45 MC Verica, and an unbind or two on Phoenix are all you need to be solid. So having Phoenix MUB definitely puts you ahead of the pack.

And yeah, 4.3.4 is preferred for the weapon anyway. You’re not there to do damage and the extra heal helps in a pinch.

Definitely hoard right now. I think the issue is that with less than 24 hours on the event, most of the geared people who would let anyone join and/or could legitimately solo the boss have finished farming the event, so the fight is now harder without them. Some folk rushing to finish might be more picky since they want more guaranteed clears to get as much event rewards as possible before it ends. I’d say just focus on getting a MUB (5 copies of) Phantom and full friendship with Felicia (MAYBE a MUB Wyrmprint as well if it strikes your fancy), since those are the only unique things from this event you can’t get again until there’s a re-run.

Thankfully, I've friendship unlocked Felicia and was able to fully unlocked the event dragon, wyrmprint x2 and light staff. :-)

Ah, that makes sense that most players have finished farming the event by now. I'll keep saving at this point. It doesn't sound like the next Gala Event is too far away.

I've been focusing on just completing dailys and running Imperial Onslaughts to upgrade my dojos; anything else I should be working on?

Have you done Chapter 7 of the story yet? That opens a new mode called Void Battles which has a ton of monthly stuff you should grab by trading in drops for things like Damascus crystals and 4* dragon unbind stones.

The biggest thing outside of that would be prepping for the next event, so building up dark adventurers. A lot of the 3* dark adventurers are quite solid DPS-wise like Rodrigo, Erik, and Althemia. On top of that the first void boss is light attuned, so they go hand-in-hand.

I've completed Chapter 7, but I'm about 500 might away from participating in the Void Battle.

I'll keep leveling up my Adventurers/Dragons and work on leveling my two Dark units (Cleo and Althemia) for the next event.

Thank you everyone for the help!

Just downloaded the game today, want it to slowly replace KHUX, any quick tips for a beginner?
A fellow KHUx refugee!

Seems like the best thing to try to do by end of today if possible is to unlock the event adventurer Felicia from the "A Waltz with Fate" event by adding her to your party for quests to increase her Friendship gauge.

I'll have to give it a try.

I was actually pretty new to KHUX and did a bunch of pulls cause I had like....6000 coins saved up somehow. Got some decent characters but it seems hella complicated. Imma stick to it for story missions and stuff but thats it.

People really hate void weapon in HMS eh?
I think it's more that people are just looking for units that pass the community-established benchmarks for HMS and aren't taking newer additions into account. I've seen plenty of Sinoas with Prometheus get noped out of rooms too despite comfortably clearing the requirements.

In your opinions other than releasing worldwide of course. What are some ways for Nintendo/CyGames to build a larger userbase,? Feels to me like the game is a bit stagnant than growing even with all the QoL updates.

To me I feel like they should market better, all the videos and ads of it aren't even uploaded to the YT channel which is probably their biggest reach at the moment + the NoA account doesn't really do much to help

Advertisement should be better.
Videos should've regularly been uploaded to Nintendo Mobile, there should be interactive contests (like retweet campaigns), maybe even Direct shoutouts.

But ultimately, there should be greater incentive to spend money.
Stuff like more 5 star adventurers on a banner are good in this regard.

Completed the Jumpstart endeavors, did a last ten pull on this banner hoping to get Odetta.... saw the 5 star color.

Please don't be Albert
Please don't be Albert already pulled a dupe
Please don't... arrrgh shit it's Albert again.....

Managed to get Odetta, Orion and Phoenix along with the dupe Albert, so pretty good ten pull.

Wanted Odetta, and going by gamepress (yes they are terrible; for everything it seems) Phoenix and Orion are real good.

Just wished I had got another 2 5 star adventurers...

can’t sleep, decided to do tickets to set up pity rate for 10-20 wyrmite, got like 3 or 4 in...

and uh

uhhhhh

he’s not the 5* I necessarily wanted but ALRIGHT

kinda pushed it by doing another 10 singles that were purely 3* and not even event prints, which is fair; will do a wyrmite 10 when it’s not 2:30 in the morning and mostly just hope for a print or two to help farming

Gala should be soon, so I’d hold off on pulling this banner and do the event with 3*/4* Dark adventurers.

Spent around 10 single tickets between the end of the last banner and the start of this one. Miraculously ended up with 2 5 stars.

My 4th Nefaria and Prometheus. I only ever get 5 star fire dragons and I have a level 100 Agni RIP. He looks pretty cool though.

I spent a handful of tickets (around 6 or so) to see if I could get a couple wyrmprints to help the currency grind. It didn't result in much. Oh well, these characters aren't limited so I can potentially pull them during the upcoming gala.

I somehow got lucky again and got the Axe guy Curran in my first 10-pull. Though I had done 11 single summons beforehand and got zip through them (not even 4 star).

My second 10-pull I got Lucretia, Zephyr#2, and Leviathan.

The dialogue for this event is absolutely great. I really hope we get more of this kind of story in future events.

Love how they didn't bother making more than 2 stages or even any sort of map for this new event. They're frankly wastes of time. Also this event is only 7 days! Make sure to max the facility within a week, everyone.

My dark team doesn't even come up to 15,000 might, unfortunately. Had less than a minute left on the regular challenge with facility level 10. I fear the master level.

Ok, this event's writing seems to be having some fun with itself, which is nice. The last event and the main story are so self serious in a really generic way that it made me want to tap as quickly as possible.

Apparently the rewards list has increased compared to previous facility events with 20 more single summon tickets and a full golden key. While there’s still the 500 Wyrmite in the master challenge, 20 tickets is roughly 3K Wyrmite worth.

So if this event ends in 7 days then the gala dragalia matches up perfectly with the start of the half year anniversary login bonus. Tenfolds every day like New Years I bet

I think the DL team definitely did their homework when it came to incorporating Lovecraftian themes into the event story. I really enjoyed it personally.

Also, they upped the daily event Elwater reward from 50 to 300, which is a pretty significant increase.

So just a quick and dirty survey just so I can know what to expect. What are you guys 4* and 5* count for adventurers and dragons? F2P or did you buy in? How long have you played? If possible mind estimating roughly how many 10 pulls you've had (I know this would be tough lol)?

Since starting on australian launch I've done probably around 7 multi summons and single summoning every time I get a ticket, and I have paid in, but only on the discount diamantium to do the daily bargain pulling. So far I have 14 4* and 1 5* adventurers (including the current welfare), and 13 4* and 6 5* dragons (including the welfare)

I've saved up to 8 multisummons now so I'm just wondering what to expect coming up.
Been playing since late October and I believe I've been playing everyday.. I missed the first two events basically, so I'm short on a light facility, Celirara, and Pele.

I've spent $0. No idea how many 10 pulls I've had. But you can see all the 5 stars ive actually gotten below, not counting repeat adventurers, which I think has only happened once.

Level 114.
77 Adventurers:
5 Stars: Naveed, Xander, Lily, Hawk, Maribelle, Hildgarde, Nefaria, and Valentine's Hildegard. 8 total.
5 Star Promoted Units: Euden, Verica, and Odetta. 3 total.

5 Star dragons pulled: Leviathan and 2x Prometheus. I've also unlocked High Midgardsormr.

5 Star Wymprints pulled: A solitary Light, 2x the rose prince, Jewels of the sun, of tricks and treats, witch's kitchen, night stalker, 2x levin's champion, dragon breathren, and auspex's prayer.

3330 wyrmmite, 30 single summon tickets, and 1 5 star summon ticket currently in stock.

Facility level 847.

The story is actually the same length episode-wise (5 episodes like the raid). There just isn’t a bunch of tiny quests in the middle to pad it out, which I’m kinda thankful for.
