I now have three of four Veromos fusion monsters at 4* max. The other one needs two levels only; and I want to 5* my mummy Namib. But to 5* these guys, you need four 4* monsters at level 1.
Enter grinding up fodder monsters to 4*. Boy, this is a huge pain. I have gone from having 120 monsters summoned and ready for use, to 60 monsters and running low on food materials. I’m even once again levelling up 1* monsters as part of the grind.
First, you level up three 1*’s. Then, if you have the right food, take those same creatures and level them up and evolve to 3*’s. Then, level them up to max and let these guys sit. Time to create a new batch of thee level 1 3* monsters, feed them to one of the 3* max creatures. You now have a 4* level 1 food monster.
I have 13 of the 20 materials needed to get all of these creatures leveled up, but I’m a bit distracted by the event over the weekend –
Not the Magic Shop – which is a cool event too – but the Elven Ranger secret dungeon. I can use any Elven Rangers for skillups for my Light or Fire unit. I understand one or both of them should be good; and getting skillups for anything that doesn’t drop is a challenge at best. So it’s a question of grinding the secret dungeon over and over – and if I’m bored, I just switch to the 4* food grind.
I also found out some interesting things about summons and powering up. If you use a 1* to power up a monster, you get the most XP for it by powering up another 1* monster. It also costs the least mana. So this suggests that you never use a monster to power up anything high – probably no better than 1 level higher than the powerup, if that. Combine this fact with the fact that 1-15 on a 1* monster takes less XP than 1-15 on a 5* monster, and you have some useful info when asking yourself what to do with all of those summons.
Speaking of lots of summons – I have that. 650 Unknown scrolls, 29 Mystical scrolls, and a few of the higher ones. I don’t see where there is any need to open them at the moment, given that I’m pushing for Veromos, plus the fact that they have a minuscule chance of summoning something high anyway. I’m only opening as many Unknown scrolls as I need to keep the food train on its tracks.
And after Free Rune Removal, and rejiggering all my runes – we were able to clear GB7 with a friend’s rep monster ! That’s a milestone. This is the first dungeon which you are suggested to grind infinitely for runes to equip on your monsters. Star ratings of 3-6 can drop beginning here. One more thing to add to my list of “things to do in the game”.
But first, I want to get my 5 monsters to 5*.
