    For the first time in forever, I did none rolls on either day of the godfest. I am saving my stones for that dragon caller REM we'll get sometime around the heat death of the universe.

    Oh yuck

    I thought hanzo was a good pull, now that they have that new assist thing?

    I have pulled him 3 times.

    I just wasted so many latent Tamadra because I thought I had regular hp latents but they were enhanced hp latents, I thought my all stats latents would be better so I overwrote my 2 enhanced hp latents and wasted 3 all stats latents too. Then I bought 3 more hp latents from the shop figurung they would be the same as the ones I had just spent and figured out my mistake by seeing that the result in the fusion menu was different from what I expected, wasting 30k MP as well.

    I'm an idiot. But PAD also has horrendous explanations for these systems.

    Fucking PAD why are you so bad sometimes.

    So as someone whos relatively new to this, is there a good way to find out if the character I draw is any good? Also are mono color teams a thing? I ask because every god fest I get like 3 light colored gods that are all healer types.

    Edit: I've used http://www.puzzledragonx.com/ but I have no idea what to do with the info there or how to tell if what I am doing is good.

    mono color teams are probably the main thing

    after a while you get a sense of what's good or not but probably the best thing to do is just ask

    and then you can judge how good it really is by how much we argue about it

    Apparently Knightmare Batman becomes Armor Batman, who was apparently kind of good a year or so ago I guess.

    I got my third Batwoman and Green Arrow. Eh.

    I guess I should clear out the new JL missions for the stone.

    Edit: I just failed the Mythical 50 point one three times in a row and feel like an idiot. I guess I really do need to redo my teams a bit. Ugh.

    Well right now I have a mostly mono light team with Vajrayaksa as my leader, and with Flash Sorcerer, Rei Sirius; Armored Blue Blade Knight Arcline; Archangel Metatron; and Amaterasu. They do pretty ok, but I have some good shadow characters in the wings, Divine Flying General Lu Bu looks great, and I also have Destroying CyberDragon Diadem and Black Beast Demon Zuoh who just seem powerful but then again I don't know shit.

  • BlueBlueBlueBlue Registered User regular
    I’d try out holy war mediator metatron as leader in your case

    So how do you guys run mono color, I always have trouble because the game wants to give me every color BUT the one I need.

  • CarthageCarthage Registered User regular
    Both Zuoh and Lu Bu would be great leaders for a newish player. There's nothing wrong with adding in some non-god/farmable/regular monsters, especially any ones that change orbs - for example, Vampire changes hearts to dark orbs and is also a devil for Lu Bu.

    I use a lot of orb changers
    The git gud approach is to just to clear 6+ combo so you’ve got an even chance of getting all the colors

    Part of playing PAD is acknowledging that sometimes the orbs you need won't fall in and that will absolutely fuck you.

    Another part is realizing that sometimes this means exactly the orbs you need will fall in, saving you utterly, and making for some of the best moments of the game alongside pulling the monster you want, clearing a dungeon that was challenging to you, and clearing a dungeon that was impossible for you alone with the help of someone you're communicating with in multiplayer.

    It has its moments.

    Well first off the "All attribute cards ATK x4 when attacking with 4 of following orb types: Fire, Water, Wood, Light, Dark & Heart. ATK x1 for each additional orb type, up to ATK x6 for all 6 matches." only triggers if your team has someone with that attribute to attack with. When it comes to leader skills like that and building a mono color team the usual approach is have your main color as the primary and the other colors as the secondary.

    I'm finding it hard to find a reason to log in every day lately. I haven't spent all my stamina in forever.

    Probably because I'm not motivated by any projects right now. No new or good pulls lately, so... meh?

    I have no idea what I'm doing. My wife and I loaded this up and there is so much new content since we played ~3 years ago. Assists? Multiplayer? A million new descends? 7x6 board monsters? Reincarnations? Ahhhh!

    I still have such good monsters from before but don't think I have it in me to try to get up to speed. But holy heck, new players don't know how good they have it. A small metal dragon actually gives amazing experience! It's so easy to max level people now. And you don't have to log in to metal dragons based on the hour? Back in mah day...

    But now monsters in higher tier dungeons have literally hundreds of millions of HP, and there are monsters that take 16M exp to level to max.

    Yeah well...I'm only playing Int/expert dungeons cuz anything above that is way too stressful :) I stopped playing because it got too complex, and looks like that trend def continued.

    I did enjoy the guaranteed gold egg+ rare egg machine to use the last of my old stones. That is also super QoL improvement, though I have no idea what half the people I pulled were and probably still better for godfests, I'm sure. But still. You know how many mystic red knights and golems I pulled back in the day? Haha! You guys never had it so good. Though I guess it probably just amounts to power creep.

    It's not even power creep anymore... It's power leap. They'll put out some new godfest exclusive monster, at 6* rarity, and the meta game changes overnight. That really neat leader you pulled a month ago now needs a buff (which it will get in a year) to hang.

    I think Dark Athena (available in the monster point shop for 750k) can still handle almost anything in the game if you can afford to buy her.

    Dark Athena needs the Haku meta team though. She also demands the ability to combo hard because boy you really don't have a lot of time extension to do it.

    No she doesn't. The whole point of her is that she steamrolls 98% of the content by matching a dark TPA and some blue. I only recently got more than 1 Haku, and my team for her is solid.

    If that content has combo shield or resolve you are turbofucked though.

    And goddamn everything has those two in combination now along with other incredibly awful mechanics.

    Rolling the REM for +eggs is a huge waste of stones . 1 of the guerrilla dungeons gives guaranteed +eggs and the fastest way to farm it is in multiplayer with 1 player clearing it by pushing active skills while the other does literally nothing. So for the price of a REM roll you could probably run it enough times to get a +297.

    You get MP by selling monsters. Most drops are 1, dungeon bosses are 10-20, and REM monsters are 3k-50k.

    You also earn them in multi-player

    They gave out like 300k+ MP last summer. 750K is doable within 1 year. It depends on what monsters you pull for sale.

    I can't handle updating PadHerder with everything. It's too daunting. So, what should my DAthena team be? I've been using Persephone, Haku, Haku, Lumiel, Asmodeus. Or is there a better team I can make than relying on friend Athena? I have stuff like Orochi and three Raphaels sitting around for Assists. If you have a suggestion that's not dark I might have it, I just took shots of my dark box (including random crap and things still to be evolved).
    420djw4sqcs1.jpg

    Also apparently I can make this spare Ronia into the special Assist thing? Should I? Could slap it somewhere on that Krishna team...I never use anymore...

    Is there a BFF reset anytime soon? I still have one to give. I need to find one of you to give it to.
