Summoners War a Week in Review (11/21/16 to 11/27/16)
Remember to subscribe to the weekly blog with your email, and the youtube channel for videos.
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.
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.
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|
|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.
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.
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.
With the mana farmed from Faimon Hell I was able to level up a six star rune from 12 to 15.
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.
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.
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!
