Summoners War progression success definitely happened last week. The past Summoners War week was deceivingly successful in my opinion.  The majority of the progress stemmed from all the randomness of the weeks gameplay.  However, it can definitely be measured in my mind from the free rune removal day quantitatively.  The progress also includes Rift Raid runs, Wind Battle Mammoth Secret Dungeon, and of course the rune runs for the week.  On another note it was a complete turnaround in Guild Wars for the week with quite a twist.

Theme

This week I embarked on a random journey that led to a lot of in game progress for my Summoners War account, and it is for that reason of the back bone of last week, I will go with the theme of success.  It really was a big turnaround in Summoners War performance on many levels this week. The biggest thing I would say collectively was The_Stand guilds performance.

Last week The_Stand failed miserably.  This week I reworked the teams, cut the attacking and defending members down to 10 total from 13 the previous week.  Surprisingly this made all the difference, and in one area I was not really paying much attention to.  You are definitely aloud to laugh at this piece as well, we made C1 for the first time as a guild. Now that might not be the funny part, but this certainly is…We did it with a losing attacking record…Yeah, that is right we went 3-7, and didn’t fight two matches unfortunately.

At this point you are probably either still laughing or scratching your head.  What was this special factor allowing us to make C1 for the first time as a guild? Well, here is something to think about, that a lot of times we forget about in Guild Wars.  I will put it plain and simple “Defense”.  Yeah, we ended up going 9-0 in our defense for the week.  We climbed from the bottomless pit where we were sitting last week, all because of our defense.  With that said, I am going to pay a lot more attention to this in the future.  On top of that, we do not set easy defense anyway, so I was extremely happy to see this turnaround for the week.

Another item of focus this week for me was inspired by a fellow guild mate Wargod.  War was looking for some Rift Raid help, so before having the opportunity to sync up, I pushed my monsters to the max to see if I could clear some new levels.

Rift Raid Level 2

Rift Raid Level 3

For not really doing my Rift Raiding, as you all know from my previous posts this was also very successful.  On top of that I was able to develop a decent carry team that can be seen in the videos for Rift Raid Level 1, to help out my guild mate Wargod.  We ended up syncing up and running raids about 10 times before Wargod accidently fell asleep. It was pretty funny.

Another big achievement for the week was paired with GB10 & DB10 runs along with the weekend event Free Rune Removal Day.  On Wednesday I decided to really push my rune hunting to prep for the weekend event.  Stuff really paid off last week for me because I was able to swap out seven five star runes for six star, and then spent around 1.5 million mana leveling those to twelve for the time being.  This was a huge improvement for all my main monsters, which were primarily my six star ones.  I am very excited to see how things go, and already have noticed some efficiency and speed improvements with the rune upgrades.

One of the other big pieces for the week was again the weekend event.  This time it was the Wind Battle Mammoth Secret Dungeon.

I was able to get over 400+ Wind Battle Mammoth pieces during the event over the weekend.  My goal was to get 400 which I was able to surpass.  I set this goal for two reasons.  First, of which was if I happen to summon Dark Battle Mammoth Basalt, I can skill him up.  The next has been from previous monster leveling experience.  I have typically ran into bottle necks by not having enough fodder and the event was able to help me add some fuel to the fodder fire.  A lot of people also use Water Battle Mammoth, and it is because of all these reason I decided to push the Wind Battle Mammoth Secret Dungeon over the weekend.

Rune Update

Giants B10 and Dragons B10 runs were definitely a focus last week for Free Rune Removal day.  Strong progress was made, and I am closing in on the one thousand mark for Giants.  Hopefully, I can get it done before the drop rate adjustment, but we will see.

Giant B10 Run Count: 750

Dragon B10 Run Count: 219

The_Stand Guild Wars

We had a huge turnaround finishing Conqueror 1 for the first time as a guild.

Notable Mentions

World Boss

The World Boss was completed twice last week, the first one I got C1, then followed by F3.

Baretta Fusion

I summoned the Water Mystical Archer this week, and leveled her up to four star, and max experience.  Pretty much set for Baretta Fusion at this point.

Level 15 Runes

Level 40 Monsters – Jamire

Summary

The past week of Summoners War was an exciting one, with a lot of progress made on multiple fronts.  I was extremely pleased with The_Stand Guild War results this week, and hope we can win more attacking battles in the future.  I was so happy I was able to upgrade so many monsters with rune improvements with the FRR event, and glad I was able to help Wargod along with improving my own Rift Raiding for the week.  Until next time Summoners, keep on summoning.

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!
