    I was having trouble with the daily, my brain isn't working well this morning.

    Not my strat, but was easy and solid.
    Copied from here:

    Yeah, I have no Jessica or Gravel leveled because I have better operators... but that makes my DP costs too high. And Gravel can't be replaced with Red because that shield gives her the delay necessarily to stall for the DP build.

    Edit: Figured it out; just had to say screw it and drop Myrtle out of the way and let two leak in the beginning and treat it as a Health 1 map. That gave me enough time and DP to stabilize and get a defense going.

    The daily:


    Dogs usually leak at the start with -DP because my Vigna is very weak but it still works.

    Wat! Them be fightin' words.

    Honestly I leveled Jessica to E1 52 for this. Gravel though, there isn't a 'better' Gravel because each Fast-Redeploy unit is unique.

    Jessica has alternatives... but Gravel really doesn't have competition for her trick right now? Plus she's super common from recruitment. And it's a really good trick.

    Yeah, I guess "better" isn't really the right word. Higher rarity operators I guess? I didn't even know Gravel's S2 did that to be honest; Red's stun has always been my go-to when I need a quick re-deploy operator.
    Another one to add to the list.

    Red is crowd control. Gravel is for eating attacks.

    Kept pulling because gacha is blood, but also new and shiny, got SilverAsh + Angelina. I'm told they're amazing but only at max promotion, so that's something to look forward to I guess.

    Pushed through to 1-10 and unlocked the chip stages + the event (and promoted Texas while I was at it, that skill two seems kinda nutty); is it worth it to do the event at all at my level or should I just keep focusing on the story and grinding exp/mats for leveling/promoting ops?

    i cleared today's daily with +150% hp, +100% atk, +50 atk speed

    you need the normal DP gen so you can constantly sacrifice units to the elite casters

    you could give it a try but it is very much an event aimed at players who are sitting on a roster of e2 units and are looking for a challenge

    but if you can manage with the support contracts you might still be able to get some points and buy some materials or chips that will help you in promoting units

    Yeah the event doesnt use sanity so cant hurt to try some and get a few points to buy stuff with.

    Back to breaking up rocks all day, going for my first M1 skill (Eyja's skill 3). This stuff is just so, so boring. Hate this aspect of gacha games quite a bit.

    Sheesh the mages hit hard in this one. But they're tankable.

    Today was wretched, I dropped it to Risk 7 to avoid losing the will to live. Perfumer E1 Max dies in like an instant.

    As always, Shinging let's me tank non-SuperSayian Bombtails. And Best Penguin laughs at 5 deploy limits.

    Thought about doing it with no Snipers either, but Exia was too valuable. Deployed her first forward (she was able to kill the initial drones and crossbow men and survive) while the Fox, Penguin, and Murder Drones face backwards.

    I really want my own Manticore. She's way too useful.

    After yesterday's nightmare clear, today was an uber breeze. It took over a full day in the rock mines, but I have my first M1 skill as of this morning, Eyja's skill 3, the volcano. Today's sanity went into working for more skill certs for all my newest people who aren't ready for prime time yet (SilverAsh, Saria, Blue Poison, Ptilopsis, and Specter). I'll miss all the bonus resources and availability for every resource level on everyday from Contingency once it's gone...

    Late, but the daily:

    I meant to say, but forgot, part of the reason I spent a day on skill mat farming is when I was struggling to beat yesterday's Risk 8, I borrowed a Level 72, E2 SilverAsh... with skill rank 1. It made me want to cry.

    Well, that was Contingency Contract I guess. I will miss you event; you got me up to 100 RMA-70s and like 60 Polyester packs. Worth it.
    I will also miss the everything open and free 100 sanity. Sigh. Oh well.. Chapter 6 should give us a couple new stages that are more efficient for picking up some materials at least.

    Day 3....4? Whatever, day something of new gacha bliss, have managed to promote most of my main squad to E1 (Texas, Siege, SilverAsh, Saria, Blue Poison, Platinum, Amiya, Ptilopsis) by dutifully ignoring things like story progress in favor of sanity pot chugging and mat/LMD grinding. There's a few more I want to invest in (Project Red, Angelina, maybe Spectre and Liskarm, probably Gitano just cause I'm real light on casters), but I think I'm just about ready to actually play the game.

    In general for the story up until chapter 5 you can easily get away with a good core of Elite 1 Level 50 or so Operators.

    I took a couple of runs at the specific Risk contracts in the non-daily CC and got some of them, but others I just seem to be a bit weak for still. That's fine, my lineup has massively grown in power since CC started. I actually have all the mats for Ifrit E2, which was shocking (I still need the dual chips and cash). Before that, I prepped everything but the Grindstone needed for Myrtle E2. She's been excessively important to all these tough levels, so that will be well worth it for the future.

    What are your guys' MVPs for CC overall, do you think? I'd say...
    1) Eyja
    2) Myrtle
    3) Borrowed Apple Pie / Borrowed Hellagur (tie depending on the level)
    5) Texas
    6) Lappland
    7) Gravel
    8) Nearl
    9) Meteorite
    10) Shining

    Maggallan's come back around pretty fast for a solo banner character.

    Also probably gonna skip this one to save for Blaze and just work on mats to E2 the cat. I'm like 80% of the way there already.

    I think my two top are easily Myrtle and Hellagur. Myrtle is basically a must-have whenever the DP was reduced. I used Hellagur on basically every daily of the not-drone map. He's perfect to just stick in the corner and intercept the mages as they do their rotation and he can solo them no problem and doesn't need any other operators to help/heal him.

    One pull for a dupe Nightmare. I'll take it.

    Operators I used a lot were Myrtle, Siege, Eyja, SilverAsh, Istina, Saria, Gravel, Mousse.

    Mine was Saria, Silverash, Specter (probably the overall MVP tbh), and slightly behind those three, Hellagur. Myrtle was also very very useful.

    That aside, I feel like Ifrit is in the certificate shop every other week at this point.

    Whelp, I wish I could done this sooner (as many of you have mentioned that she was super useful), but did my first promotion to E2 with Myrtle!

    Also did a one pull on the banner and got a dupe Silence. Eh, I'll take it.
