So, I've rolled several 7* from the current GHREM and I'm considering trading them into something else. Any suggestions? Nothing is kind of jumping out as all that great at the moment. On the other hand, I'm not sure what good Ralg or Cian actually do, so it feels like trading is the correct response.
Ralg is a solid lazy farm option, Cian is the auto FUA for green. Both are good, neither are great.

If you're trading:
Karen - She's still really strong, easy to activate and has a yugi relevant skill equip
Knight Kisaragi - One of Tifa's best subs and solves her orb hunger in one active.
(dark) Omega - the best TA2 farmer outside of Ranger Slayer
Zeta - outshined by a lot of stuff but still absurdly strong, dupes make him even better. His equip has healer killer and triple blind res too.

GHREM and FFREM are my best two "Collabs" that I have participated in, (Omega, Gaymala, Luluna, Raizer, three (yes three) Karin, and an Aoi. Because of the assists, I have kept my three Karin, but I have toyed with trading the others (except Omega and Gaymala because <50% and Minekata are great).

unfortunately, I don't have a Ralg or Cian, but I have seen good things with Ralg before if you have good Red leaders, I know nothing about Cian though.

Finished arena challenge with yugi. 31.5 min to complete. Got all three damage absorbs in a2 so yugi was awesome. Noah dragon at the end.

What were your subs/assists? Can you post the clear card?
Not at the moment. Did it during lunch break. Here's the team:
SBR Badge
Yugi (Lina equip)
Bakura (Winged Dragon of Ra card)
Bakura (Bakura card)
Fortress Dragon (Mystic Faerie)
Fortress Dragon (Rokks Equip)
Yugi (Rikuu Equip)

I had to burn a turn to transform. replacing Rokks with Rikuu would have fixed that but I'd lose 100% jammer res (turned out to not matter thanks to Vishnu and Hera-ur...)
You NEED 100% SBR. There's so many skill binds... I cycled Magician actives pretty regularly till A3 where I kept one charged for Heph dragon. Bakura can be used whenever. I never needed the assist on the second bakura but it was an insurance policy.

A1: blast as fast as possible. Yugi will be up for Sopdet.
A2: see above, stall on parv if necessary to have yugi ready for Vishnu.
A3: Make sure you have yugi up for Hera dragon.

I didn't get stuck anywhere but Heimdall was annoying as was the purple shieldra.

each radar:
Hera: use Yugi and win
Heph: hold on to at least 1 skill to make 6 darks and row will kill especially with poison
Zeus: Bakura active --> VDP
Noah: wait for no dark resist then Bakura + VDP (pray for no light skyfall)
Gaia: Easy, just blow her up with whatever active.

Edit: here's the clear card

You did it 4 minutes faster than me blade, I used yugi too, 2 fortress dragons, dark magician, and sub yugi. The team I have ready for nere. Excited for her release. I'll do it on my alt tomorrow or something, it's a bit of a slog.

Got Bradamante for my freebie roll - the locked orbs tech is nice but seems pretty niche overall? Especially since I already have SR.Venus and R.Daio as short cooldown base subs on my light teams.

I really should craft an all purpose light team with all the resistances since Yugi can get boring. :)

Did it in 33 minutes just went in with Yugi.

Screwing around in 3P Arenas is kind of a cluster, nobody is a good teammate and will save orbs for your color, etc.

did the A4/A5 challenge with Yugi, same team almost the same time.

Nothing too interesting, the Mystic Faerie assist made Ena hilariously easy. Nothing too sketchy happened and I didn't stall anywhere. Mathena-->Durga is handled by Yugi.

DBDC is back. If you're new or missing a bunch of cards here it's worth pulling to at least get a set of the 5*'s. The killer squad (no.6, shazel, pralinae, etc) are all great to have.

I'd suggest farming up at least 5 rainbow tickets for Artura or Chuan. Chuan is a surprisingly strong card as a lead for quick farming or as a sub for emergency orb production. Artura is a pseudo farmable "unmatchable status" clear. You'll need No. 6 to evolve into Artura though.

I'd hold off on rolling/trading for the big ticket stuff unless you IAP a bit. There's a couple events we'll probably get soonish that are way more value per stone. See above for Tales of Artifact Dragons, and Mickey and Friends, and (eventually...maybe...) Devil May Cry.

I wish DBDC would actually reset the freebies. They advertise them, why not actually let people who have been around longer get them again?

Second try on Colo2 with vIdeal. I got to despharion and got obliterated when I broke resolve. So that was fun. I need to inherit a burst somewhere on my team and maybe throw a few machine killers on if I want to clear the dungeon.

They are likely giving away a 6* guaranteed roll free for Mickey gacha in jpn
The rates must've been terrible
All 4 of my accounts only rolled 5*


Also patching the new raziel descended dungeon to make it easier
I don't recall they've ever done this before in all these years?

The closest I can think of them nerfing a dungeon was the Jorm-Ullr challenge getting nerfed to -1 combo check on each challenge.

Mickey 6*'s might as well have been myths. I got all the 5*'s but Scrooge. I did get the orb skin from the gatcha challenge though.

Haha right?
You’d think the 6* are more common with 15% rates


I was thinking of the time when they got rid of monster type requirements for some descends
But that was more of a QoL improvement than a nerf
The success rates for this descend must’ve been completely wretched

Nelle (Nere) and Fasca show up this weekend.
Keep in mind there's a couple neat SGFs coming in the nearish future, specifically the orbskin SGF and whatever they call the 8th anniversary SGF here. There's also the Dragon Artifact, Mickey and Friends, Bleach rerun, etc etc. So maybe don't go all in on this SGF especially if you have Yugi or some other top tier lead.

Edit: rolled a nelle too
Couldn’t get faska :(

Friend me if you need
354,225,376

Running yugi slot 1 and Nelle slot 2



Edit some more: bakura can/should still be run in yugi/nelle setup even if you take a hit in hp and atk
Still the top dps

Just rolled Nelle. I put her up in my BF slot but will probably be playing with her mostly so she should be up. If anyone doesn’t have me on their friends list, my code is 302,982,304

Nice, already have you as a best friend. I have her and yugi team prepped. Look forward to try that out after work.

Just tried yugi paired with nelle in aa3, I think I got pretty good spawns, but it was pretty easy. I'm still not super familiar with that dungeon though. But the 7x6 definitely helped with combo shields and working around spinners, obviously. I didn't feel it was a huge advantage over yugi and yugi, but definitely better, and he's already pretty broken.

Now Faska, who does she pair best with? I have sub haohmaru on my main, but can change him to leader if that's a good pairing. I have leader haohmaru on alt, but no Faska friends.

Faska's best pairing, right now, is actually Yugi
Esp if you have multiple bakuras(luxury build asks for 3 + 1 equip lol)

Dark karin and haomaru work too
Faska brings amazing utilities AND dps with these pairings
And they have the added advantage of using OP subs like bridezela and Gourry(sadly the best light sub is from yokai watch)

Another great thing with faska is pretty much all the upcoming gachas include a top lead to pair with her
Sword art online: Alice
Mickey friends: Donald
Artifact dragon: Rampaid (this is a 5* roll!!!)

I have 2 gourys and a bradamante, should I focus on haohmaru or yugi for that pairing? I have a top tier yugi nelle team, but I want to make a faska one as well.

My main rolled zero bakuras.

Three Hands of Fate Challenge done with vIdeal. Probably far from optimal (80 seconds left) but it got the job done.

A lot of D.Omega setups for TA2 use Theor (which I don't have) as a damage stick. Would Rehven be a suitable substitute? Obviously a big downgrade in active skill for a normal dungeon (no absorbs). Debating whether I should trade for Rehven before DBDC goes away. 5 for 1 cost is a bit steep.

Pulled shelling on both my main and alt, what do folks usually use him with? Rainbow teams or does he get use elsewhere?

Only tried a few times but failed to beat the weekend challenge with Yugi. That light/dark absorb spawn and her long turns burnt too much time. Didn’t bother trying with another team.

I couldnt fit void att. absorb when I did it in jpn with that team
So I just 1 combo a couple of times
Then used delay
Then 1 combo some more until absorb is down
Shouldn’t eat up too much time

After playing around saturday, with no issues I was consistently getting to the norm floor with no issues and no time. So yesterday I Beat the weekend challenge with Yugi, Christmas Reeche with Reeche inherit to beat the puppeteer card floor which had been a major time suck right at the end (and even then got screwed once with a bad board after skill).

Except yesterday Fuma kotaro showed up and he is a hard stop if he spawns. Seriously burnt an entire stones worth ofenergy (400+) because he spawned four times in a row before I gota sylph spawn.

Anyone have a decent strat for the ranking? I'm in the ~10% bracket which is all I shoot for these days but I'm on the upper end and want to pad my score a little so I don't have to worry about it.

Currently I'm just pronging my ass off and hoping I combo enough to get a decent average.

heard "L" moves are better than prongs in this case due to the larger board.

That being said, My scores have been terrible (but I have attributed it largely to myself being poor at the game vs the incorrect strategy)

Hit 2000 days today.

For ranking I'm at 5%. I prong in an order and do L with last orb kind. Do Reiwa floor 5 then just do natural board for final getting as much style points as I can.

Ahhhhhhhh. I was killing stamina cause I have to go to bed early and played the new Colosseum. Got to the last floor and dark magic girl to unlock the bombs, yugi for orbs, vdp and row plus combos and I didn't realize I flubbed some bombs... they ruined the row and the vdp, dead. Ahhhhhhhh.

Odin story is live. Stone for each floor and 1000 tamas for clearing.

Vidar is an asshole. No assists, bring either a true grav combo or a big ass burst. You can stall forever till hes at 50% hp then you have 7ish turns to kill or you die. You need to burn through 1.25 billion hp and a 90% shield to kill. No vdp or resolve just a combo shield and a fuck ton of hp.

This worked for me

Yeah but how LONG is the cheese? Cause I got Kiri(s)
Iirc it wasn't too long
Some floors can actually be cleared normally as you charge up gravities

I entered with co-op, so the whaledor spot I used another Zeus verse
This made it go even faster

Relic Dragon series starts tomorrow
This was referred as the Artifact dragon series when it was in JP.

Lampied is a 5* pull and quite strong. Definitely worth rolling in a couple times if you have stones and aren't interested in Sword Art or Bleach.

Lampeid is like the highest tier placing card in the bunch
Right below fasca and Yugi, and right next to cards like Nelle and Alice(SAO)
Pretty amazing for a 5*

Good thing too cuz I had terrible terrible luck with this gacha

Heh. Got him on my freebie roll. Is the rest of the REM worth rolling for? 10 stones is steep and I know there are some really good super godfests coming up soon.
