How to Swipe: 3P Monster Hunter Collab – 2018 Version

3P Monster Hunter Full Swipe Build

I saw some people confused with how to swipe this dungeon so I figured I’d try my hand at it. To my surprise, I could actually make both the builds but the goal wasn’t to be able to. I also wanted to use Halloween Nene because she’s cute and under appreciated in the community for her 256x for a single row.


Astral Plane Deity (Zeus Verse) Challenge Set – Quick Notes and Tips

Quick notes and tips for Astral Plane Deity Challenge Set

This dungeon set is honestly a relief compared to the Nyx challenges. Going to try a different layout for this set compared to the previous challenge sets and the notes will be shorter than normal simply because of the dungeons being easier and overall less time to write than I used to have (also focusing on mechanics guides). All the non-boss floors are standard spawns from other dungeons so I won’t focus much on them, especially for the earlier floors, and instead focus on the boss. This dungeon set is Solo Only.

I’ll also be trying a slightly different formatting for this set as well. Just click the floor which you want to see notes on. If no link is available it means it’s still in progress!

Floor 1 – No Restrictions – Olympios

Floor 2 – No Lights – Stratios

Floor 3 – All Attribute Req. – Mercury

Floor 4 – No Restrictions – Dios

Floor 5 – 7×6 Board – Vulcan

Floor 6 – No Dupes – Verse

Happy Puzzling~

It’s the New Year! Don’t screw up January quests in all the celebration!

How to make sure you get your rewards for January quests

In JP it was actually a really big issue that their November (our January) was unclear and people were not getting their dungeons marked as cleared for the quests. This quick post will cover the complexities of Gungho’s decisions for making this set of quests to ensure you get your Rikku (well, at least can try to) at the end of the month!


XMas REM Review 2017 – Break what ain’t broke

XMas REM Review 2017 – Break what ain’t broke

Seasonal REMs have been very lackluster lately and unable to attract as many people to rolling. This is largely due to horrible top end rates (8 stars being <1% chance) and so much filler (80% silver rate) meaning you end up with FAR more than you’d ever want to see while chasing for a specific 8 star.

However, over the last year we’ve seen changes to this and hopefully Gungho will be more rewarding to players that decide to spend on REMs that are traditionally trappy as I called this very REM last year.

What changed? For one, the silvers were removed from this REM. Yes, you heard that. 80% of rolls were silver in seasonal / collab REMs so this is a nice change. It will be worth looking out for whether the percentages of everything else just get increased or if the golds take on the 80% rate, 6 star gets the ~15%, etc. But one further step is that instead of the 1.25x rate ups for the 8 stars, they’re giving a whopping 3x rates which, taking the roughly 1% we’ve been seeing lately, brings us to 3% on boosted days. This should hopefully take chases from roughly 344 rolls to 100 or so.


How to Farm: Takeminakata. No Skyfall, Ganesha, 5 active kill


This guide will be on farming Takeminakata which is one of the +30 descend drops. This guide is a proof of concept because people told me that it wasn’t possible to make a no skyfall, 5 active kill in NA (the previous build assumed No.6 for the killers to kill Takeminakata).


Why was this more difficult to make? Takeminakata has about 6.3M HP vs some of the other descends where you see the bosses at 2-4M which makes it much easier to killer. Takeminakata also has 3 premptive hits, creating a situation of having to clear 4 floors and make a board for floor 5, using only 5 actives. Adding in that 6th active is very easy, but remember, this is a proof of concept and those willing to make it can see benefit in how many partners they can pair with (not needing any specific inherits) and speed (one less active). Just be aware, this is whale and high investment.
