Summoners War a Week in Review (11/21/16 to 11/27/16)

This is the second week of Summoners War a Week in Review where we will look at the previous week’s gameplay, highlight notable findings, and outline game progression.  This week in Summoners War a Week in Review we will see a split theme of Giants B10 along with double experience runs.  Last week in the US we also had Thanksgiving! I hope everyone had a Happy and Safe Thanksgiving as well.

Summoners War First 30 Days Beginners Guide

Focus Tip

One thing I try to do every Sunday evening is plan out my Summoners War week.  In reality the planning can be iterative whereby you are flexible with your schedule and items available.  Especially, if an emergency comes up.  For example, yesterday my poor kitty Caesar had been puking and we took him to the emergency vet.  Obviously, this wasn’t something on the radar and caused a shift in my gaming which I will highlight in next week’s piece.  We have an additional vet appointment this morning and I will let everyone know how it goes.

As far as the planning goes there are really three pieces to it.  First, what is your schedule look like for the week?  In case of last week we hosted Thanksgiving, so I know prepping the Turkey and cooking was going to eat a lot of my Summoners War Gameplay time.  The other thing is know your work schedule if you have a job, and in corporate America know your meeting schedule. Second, know what is in your gift box.  Most gifts have a seven day decay period, I like to use this in my planning.  I typically only claim stuff if I can help it when its less than a day.  However, in last week’s planning I had double experience gifts from the 70 Million Downloads Event that needed to be used up.  Unfortunately, one of the experience bonuses was set to expire on Thanksgiving, so I planned around that.

70 Million Download Event for Reference

Lastly, and tying in nicely with the above is know the events! You should know when the events are coming up, and what rewards you will get.  Recently, a lot of the events have been community ones like the 70 million Download Event.  I would just like to say way to go Summoners!  Mainly for consistently getting all the rewards in the community events.

When you have a good understanding of the three pieces of your schedule, your gift box, and current in game events you can successfully plan out your week of Summoners War Gaming.

Theme

The previous week took a little shift on my game plan due to Thanksgiving, and event rewards, however I was happy to say I was able to spend two days grinding double experience, and get enough Giants B10 runs in to make it a good week.  Plus, another progression milestone.

Giants B10 Rune Outcome

Utilizing my previous week’s method I followed suit again last week.  I took note throughout the week of how many Runes I collected in the following categories: Six star Legendary, Six Star, and Five Star Legendary.  I did not keep track of how many total runs I did, but I would venture between 30 to 50 runs a day.  I was very happy with the results relative to what my previous perception was.

Legendary 6 Star 1
6 Star 26
Legendary 5 Star 6

I was able to get another six star Legendary rune this week! I also as previously stated spent two days grinding experience.  I was surprised to come out this well on runes, however I think I played much more Sunday than I did the week before.  I do believe from a consistency with last week that the percentage is somewhere between 10%-15% for a six star drop.  The other thing to highlight that I did not last week was we are obtaining farmable crafting mats the entire time as well.

The other thing I did was livestream GB10 runs.  I unfortunately wish I could have done it longer, but was having technical issues.  I was able to get eight runs in, and get one six star rune in the run.  I would have shared the video, but I ended up deleting the video due to quality issues in my opinion.

The_Stand Guild Wars

This week was a most unfortunate week for The_Stand and the guild wars.  We ended around 967 rating, and had a losing record for the week of five wins and seven losses.  On a nice note we had an active player who had been gone on vacation come back for this upcoming week, so let’s see if they can help make a difference.

GamertagMythras PvP

This week was a personal record for PvP! I am extremely happy about the outcome.  On top of that it was one of the most active weeks for me getting in a cool 220 attacks!  Really racking up those glory points.  On top of that one of the things I learned is when you look at best score it’s not based off the rating but rather the rank.  This was something I realized with the world boss last week as well.

PvP Personal Record

The Experience Grind

I had two double experience rewards that needed to be used up last week.  Both were 12 hr boosters, so I spent both my Tuesday, and Wednesday grinding up my monsters.  One thing I tracked was in two hours I was able to complete a 5 star monster which I think is pretty good.  However, I did not keep that pace up for two days straight.  Otherwise I would have been the proud owner of two more six stars.  I also did not have all the available materials for that.

I did not six star a monster, just kind of got everything in place to do it.  I was able to get enough stuff leveled up for one during the two days.  The other nice things about Farming Faimon Hell with Lapis was I was able to replenish much needed mana.  I was able to farm over 1.5 million mana in those two days.

I highly suggest Lapis if you don’t have a faimon hell farmer yet.  You can see the video below for a reference.

Notable Mentions

With the mana farmed from Faimon Hell I was able to level up a six star rune from 12 to 15.

6 star level 15 violent Rune

On one of my daily rewards for the week I hit the monster reward.  I always hope for that nat 4+ monster, but landed a light beast hunter instead.

Light Beast Hunter

I also hit the Finance First VI Achievement.  This was a nice achievement.

World Boss was completed at Fighter three again.  Unfortunately, I missed a day removing me from the G1 running for the week.  Always remember to use up your turns, and even if you plan to later like I was you may forget, and it may cost you like me.

Summary

Once again it was a busy week with both ups and downs as it always is! I hope you are able to utilize my focus tip and trick around planning out your week of Summoners War Gaming.  If you have other tips or tricks please share below in the comments.  Until next week Summoners I am back to the grind!

Summoners War a Week in Review (11/14/16 to 11/20/16)



Summoners War a Week in Review (11/14/16 to 11/20/16)

Remember to subscribe to the weekly blog with your email, and the youtube channel for videos.

I want to try and start a new thing to help enhance my Summoners War gameplay, and allow for further sharing of ideas, as well as strategies, and progression.  My plan is to blog weekly, and share with you Summoners War a Week in Review, where by each week I will chat about the previous weeks doings.  On top of that I will try to have some sort of focus or theme for the week, however as much as I would like to do that I know even after last week it’s very easy to lose sight of an overall theme.  As many a summoner would know, we are constantly bombarded with things that change our direction of Summoners War gameplay.  With that said let’s take a look at this week’s Summoners War a Week in Review.

Summoners War

Theme

Last week my plan was to run Giants B10.  Previously leading up to last week my focus had been on running Dragons B9.  The rationale for my in doing so was to get violent runes, and at the same time my B9 auto clear times are roughly anywhere from one to two minutes faster.  The other thing I wanted to do with my Giants B10 focus was track how many runes I got for the week and share that with you.

Giants B10 Rune Outcome

I took note throughout the week of how many Runes I collected in the following categories: Six star Legendary, Six Star, and Five Star Legendary.  I did not keep track of how many total runs I did, but I would venture between 30 to 50 runs a day.  I was very happy with the results relative to what my previous perception was.

Legendary 6 Star 2
6 Star 27
Legendary 5 Star 7

In total I kept 26 runes. On top of this if we look at the number of runs, and figure we averaged 30 a day making a total of 210 runs for the week.  When we look at the odds we are pulling in a keeper rune 13% of the time or roughly every 10 runs in Giants B10.  I was even more impressed that I was able to get a legendary six star rune not once, but twice.  You should hopefully get one each week then, or one about every hundred runs.

The thing I liked most about focusing on Giants B10 for the week was the epiphany that it’s much easier to progress your monsters than what is perceived.  The game has many distractions that take focus away, but when we look at the facts the investment in the runs is worth it and pays off.

The_Stand Guild Wars

This week I made some slight changes to the Guild Lineup.  We had been hurting do to players not using all their attacks.  The adjustment I made was cutting everyone from this week’s battles unless they were top 10 in contribution for the week before. This adjustment paid off for all the active contributors as we were able to briefly eclipse G2 during the week.  We ended up F3 and a record of 7-5 for the week.  Most of the losses coming in later in the week.

GamertagMythras PvP

This was one of my better weeks for PvP.  I would definitely say I am the set weak defense for the whole week until Sunday kind of a player.  With that said I was very happy with my weekly results, which in fact were one of my better ones.  I usually shoot to end up over 1200 for the week, but the thing I was most excited about was the ability to attack 142 times throughout the week.  I was constantly out of attack attempts.

Summoners War PvP

Chasing Trophy Monsters

One thing I really enjoy is doing summoning sessions.  Chasing Trophy Monsters is a series where I do mass summonings usually the qualifier is 50+ Mystical Scrolls.  This week was definitely one of the worst summoning session I ever had.  You can see for yourself.

Events

Secret Dungeon Wind Beast Hunter Event

70 Million Downloads Event

Progression Milestones for the Week

Things I also checked off this week were finishing off x40 monster pieces for my inventory of Fire Beast Hunter, Fire Viking, and the Wind Beast Hunter.  While I was doing my summoning session I used a double experience item so I could utilize my storage and three star monster fodder.  In doing so I was able to six star my Light Epikion Priest Iona!  In the World Boss I was able to finish G1 once last week, and reach B plus rating with my main group for the first time.

Summoners War World Boss

Summoners War World Boss B+

Summary

It was an action packed week! I learned a lot about the rune drop rates, and accomplished many firsts.  Even though the summoning session sucked, I was able to make the best of it six starring Iona.  Until next week!

PokemonGo Daily Bonus Event



PokemonGo Daily Bonus Event

Since it was discovered PokemonGo Daily Bonus would be a new feature via data mining, and confirmed by Niantic the PokemonGo Daily Bonus is finally coming to fruition.  With that said it was recently announced yesterday in honor of the Daily Bonus Update Niantic would have a PokemonGo Daily Bonus Event running from November 7th to November 11th.  This is extremely exciting coming off of the PokemonGo Halloween Event.

Pokemon Go Daily Bonus Event

Celebrating Daily Bonuses with More Daily Bonuses

With the rollout of the new PokemonGo Daily Bonuses it has been confirmed from November 7th to November 11th not only will you get to experience a PokemonGo Daily Bonus, you will get a few additional bonuses!  First you will experience more Pokemon sightings! On top of an increase in sightings, each pokestop will yield a bigger loot!  This means more great balls, and ultra balls for trainers that are 20 plus!

PokemonGo Daily Bonus – Personal Experience

Two days ago coming home from a trip I noticed an increase in stardust on my first pokemon, and an increase in items from my first Pokestop.  I wondered to myself if they had finally pushed the Pokemongo Daily Bonus out.  Then when I got home I was baffled by all the Pokemon I was seeing show up on my radar. Whenever I see something odd in PokemonGo my immediate reaction is this supposed to be happening?  Then I immediately go into the mode of, well I definitely must play more and take advantage of this.  One of the things I noticed was a big increase in Tauros so jokingly I was calling it Pokemon Thanksgiving Event.

Low and behold finding out today they are actually running a PokemonGo Daily Bonus Event, which is awesome.  The best part being not only have I been able to capture a lot of Pokemon in the last 36 hours I have been able to keep my bags full.  I think Niantic has done a good job with coinciding this event with the new Pokestop Lock where you can’t get Pokestops any more while you are driving.  As much as I hate this I think it is a fair compromise, but definitely a pain in the butt as many older trainers probably only have time to play during their work commutes.  Hence pushing those trainers further and further behind.  We all know unfortunately we can’t all play 24/7 as much as we would like to.

The Pokestop lock will also lead to a decrease in activity among trainers that will face a big weather change coming soon known as winter.  This will be a key question as how Niantic will make it an even playing field with weather pattern changes.  Fortunately for PokemonGo Trainers in the northern hemisphere it has been exceptionally mild weather so far.

PokemonGo Increase Sightings

So, if you are fortunate to have time to play PokemonGo I highly encourage you to get out there and catch some Pokemon over the coming days! Good luck Trainers, and stay safe.
