Summoners War a Week in Review (7/3/17 to 7/9/17)

Summoners War a Week in Review (7/3/17 to 7/9/17)

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

Last week I was able to make some incredible progress in Summoners War.  A few things definitely helped contribute to that progress across both my accounts.  First and foremost, you should always be trying to take advantage of Free Rune Removal (FRR).  The next thing that helped was really a little Summoners War RNG.  Nothing like a little Random Number Generation that falls in your favor, something I will talk about a little later.

Theme

As I have talked about FRR before in the past, my focus for this weeks theme will revolve more around Summoners War RNG and Summoners War Summon Rates.  I think this is always a fun, exciting, and most definitely frustrating topic for all Summoners.  Not just in Summoners War, but also in many other games or challenges you may potentially face in life.  Especially, with things like becoming a millionaire by winning the lottery! Seriously, not advocating that.

Account Progression

KidMythras Alt Account

This past week I hit my 60 days of account creation!  My Alt account is moving along pretty quickly, and I plan to write a separate piece, and probably video just to talk more indepth about how far I made it in 60 days.  I do want to mention a few high-level items about the topic though.  First, Summoners War has made it much easier for noobs to play the game.  The addition of Reina’s Challenges have really helped get a good footing in the game.  With the rewards really helping to tee you up for success, and to be honest layout a good game path that wasn’t there before.  I like how they broke it down for specific topics of focus as well.

Also as everyone knows my favorite Faimon Hell Farming with Lapis! Seriously though, I did six star Lapis first after my first 30 days of game play.  Here is the link to what I did achieve in 30 days: http://www.gamertagmythras.com/summoners-war-first-30-days/

Faimon Hell Farmer Lapis

One of the major reasons I did this is it created an immediate focus for the account, and a farmer.  You will most likely spend most of your time farming stuff, and early game Summoners War Experience for you monsters is crucial for progression.  It definitely paid off for me in the first days of game play, and didn’t give me room for hesitation on who to six star.  Also, to be honest I hadn’t summoned any monsters that would lead me to immediately want to six star anyway.  Closest at that time would have been Water Harp Magician.  However, I would have preferred a damage dealer like Hwa.  Also, I have been farming Faimon Hell with a Fatal Blade set! More to come on that as well, some additional tips for this.

The other piece I wanted to mention was the steady progression I have already made in Monster Fusion.  My summoning sessions have got me very close to completing the Wind Valkyrja Katarina.  I am one Water Grim Reaper Hemos Away.  Most of the monsters I also have leveled up due to Lapis.  I have also fused Baretta, and made great progress on Veromos.  Following my personal Veromos Guide:

Summoners War RNG & Summoners War Summon Rates

Now a quick fun discussion point on the Summoners War Random Number Generator.  First off, the Summoners War RNG Gods were in my corner last week.  I was able to summon some killer monsters across both my accounts that made my day.  I did my largest summoning to date and am currently editing the videos for everyone.  I will let you know that I got my Galleon, not only once but twice! So that is a little RNG love right there, and one on each account.  Very happy about that, and you will just need to subscribe so you don’t miss the Summon Session.

Now as far as RNG goes in Summoners War last week someone posted on reddit the summon rates.  Apparently in the Korean server or something they became visible.  I am reposting the list here from a reddit article: https://www.reddit.com/r/summonerswar/comments/6k7yb8/summoners_war_rates_exposed/

Mystical and Elemental Scrolls

  • Nat 5 – 0.5%
  • Nat 4 – 8.0%
  • Nat 3 – 91.5%

Exclusive Stones and L&D

  • Nat 5 – 0.5%(so 10,000 stones)
  • Nat 4 – 8.0%
  • Nat 3 – 91.5%

L&D

  • Nat 5 – 0.35%
  • Nat 4 – 6.0%
  • Nat 3 – 93.65%

Legendary and Transcendence

  • Nat 5 – 6.5%
  • Nat 4 – 93.5%
  • Nat 3 – Just Kidding

Transcendence is self explanatory.

Temple of Wishes

  • Rainbowmon – 1.6%
  • King Angelmon – 1.6%
  • Crystal 10/15/20 – 22.4%
  • Crystal 50/100/150 – 2.0%
  • Mana 10,000 – 28.9%
  • Mana 30k/50k/70k – 2.0%
  • Mana 150k – 1.5%
  • Energy 15 – 24.0%
  • Arena Wings 5 – 12.0%
  • Mystical Scroll – 2.0%
  • Rune – 1.5%
  • Monster – 0.5%

 

Essentially Summoners War RNG is not so random anymore!  Which is another reason why I wanted to talke about RNG.  In reality you could argue its not really random because it is defined by a set of criteria.  This would then make it Pseudo Random.  Why its PRNG is that there is a determined set of criteria.

DivineMythras

To save some time here a little overlap as before.  Had some Summoners War RNG land in my favor on my main.

To cover Free Rune Removal a little more in depth it was definitely more of a focus on my main account.  To prepare for it I had a Rune Crafting Session where I crafted over 50 runes!  I was able to get some Legendries and some other six-star runes to enhance a few of my monsters.  Last week’s FRR was also one of the most successful in terms of monster upgrades.  I re-runed Stella, Baretta, Hwa, and stripped some of my lower monsters to transition them to 4-star fodder.  All-in I spent well over six million mana upgrading the new adjusted runes on them as well.

Rune Craft Session

A couple other key notes was that I six starred Stella, and awakened her.  I completed Summoners War R5 for the first time.  Another video to come there.  On top of it all I was able to skill up Homie’s level four skill.  I have one last skill to enhance on Homie and he will then be complete!

Major progress last week on my main account all around.  Definitely one of the biggest boosts in a while things to some RNG love, and the Summoners War Free Rune Removal.

Summary

Wow this has been a wordy blog with a lot of heavy topics.    Lots of those topics I could spend a ton more time and probably will in the future.  Especially since they could each have their own blog I’m sure!  I hope you enjoyed the progression on my alt and main.  Additionally, I hope you enjoyed seeing the Summoners War Summon Rates, and hitting the topic on Summoners War RNG in doing so.  Until next time Summoners keep on summoning!

Summoners War a Week in Review (2/13/17 to 2/19/17)



Summoners War a Week in Review (2/13/17 to 2/19/17)

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

Like last week, apologies for being a day late again.  I was traveling yesterday, and did not have time to make the weekly post on time.  With that said I am quickly closing in on a year of Summoners War! However, I do not think I will be able to make all the goals I had set. A big piece of that has been due to time, there just wasn’t quite enough run way to get there.  On the flip side I was able to take a TOAN stuffing from the previous month with Artamiel and work out the kinks.

***Note per feedback next week I will include a list of times and progress for tracking (Sorry didn’t have time for it this week)***

Theme

This week’s theme is going to be along the lines of Summoners War persistence.  I want to go by that as its sort of two fold.  First, it’s the persistence of being able to beat TOAN 100 again for this cycle.  Then it is also Summoners War persistence because as I begin to move into year two of Summoners war I have goals that I can carry over into the next year of gameplay.

TOAN

Coming off the back of last month’s roll over of TOAN and getting stuck at Artamiel I made it my Summoners War crusade to beat TOAN 100 right away.  There was no filly farting around, and I wanted to get straight to it.  I wanted to make sure I had ample time to work out any kinks instead of leaving a very tight timeline at the end of the TOA roll over like I typically do.

I was able to progress quickly like I have in the past getting to around TOAN 80 for auto.  I do pay a little attention at the boss levels sometimes, just to ensure a little efficiency.  It wasn’t until TOAN 80 Seara where I actually had to think about my strategy a bit.  In order to beat TOAN 80 I swapped in Hwa for slows and big hits to accomplish the task of going straight to the face.

This month’s TOAN 90 Aschubel seemed like a cake walk relative to last months.  I was able to quickly by pass it, and get to 100.  I was able to beat TOAN 100 first run through, with the same strategy I used last time to beat it.  The team I use works well by having big heals and big health.  I run Veromos, Theomars, Iona, Belladeon, and Chasun to accomplish the completion of TOAN 100.

Necropolis Update

I did not make any additional progress on trying to beat Necropolis B10 this past week.  I believe I need to re-rune Hwa violent if I would like to complete with some of my current monsters.  I am also sitting on six starring an additional one at the moment. That six star will most likely be Colleen, not only to help with Necro B10, but other areas of the game as well.

Rune Update

I will update the Rune counts next week, as I accidently already combined this weeks into the mix. Apologies again, but I did not run either that much as I decided to focus on TOA instead, so not really much of an update anyway.

Giant B10 Run Count: 103 – TBD

Dragon B10 Run Count: 358 – TBD

The_Stand Guild Wars

We had another good week in guild wars!

GamertagMythras PvP

This past week I did not play a lot of PVP.  Even though I flipped back to my old strategy I think I was just slightly north of 100 attacks for the week, still significantly less than my usual.

Notable Mentions

Wind Mummy Secret Dungeon

Runes Level 15

I was able to upgrade four more runes to level 15 this week.

Buildings

I leveled up 7 different buildings this week.  I figured based off last week’s TOA runs maybe my monsters could use a little more help.

Summary

Overall I was very happy with last week’s Summoners War persistence.  Being slightly grumpy of the TOAN 90 stuffing of the week before I was able to accomplish my goal last week of turning the tables on TOA.  I am looking forward to the next week as I will hit my one year of Summoners War gameplay, and continue to fine tune and work through my next set of challenges/goals.  Until then summoners keep on summoning.

Summoners War a Week in Review (2/6/17 to 2/12/17)



Summoners War a Week in Review (2/6/17 to 2/12/17)

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

First off, apologies to my weekly readers for being a day late.  I spent last week doing a site migration, and had work conflicts yesterday so this post did not go out on time.  I also want to say a big “Thank You” to all the subscribers as the YouTube channel reached 100 subs last week!

Last week was a close week on many things, but there was no cigar.  I spent a majority of the week grinding experience, and wasn’t able to six star, and became hesitant on who to six star next.  I made a little progress on Necromancer dungeons, but I still have a little bit to go.  On top of that I got stuffed at Artamiel TOAN 90.

***Note per feedback next week I will include a list of times and progress for tracking***

Theme

The ability to prevail is a big one, even when you feel like you are stuck and have nowhere to go.  This week Summoners War short comings has driven me to revitalize my strategy from last week.  I realized I need to refocus on some things to achieve what I have in front of me.  It was particularly frustrating not completing TOAN again this month, however I shouldn’t be leaving it to the last minute.  Also, I realized I need to retool a few of my monsters and will have to invest more time next FRR to change up HWA from swift to violent runes.

TOAN – Artamiel 90

Interestingly enough I was able to auto TOAN to 87 for the most part with my core team.  I tried multiple things to get past Artamiel, and really wish I had a better strategy to share around TOAN 90 Artamiel.  Here’s the adjustment I would make if I could.

First off, my Colleen is not six star nor is she skill maxed.  That is one thing I could have used on Artamiel.  The other issue I have, is I need to build Baretta specifically for a situation like this for the multi-dots.  A team that I found that worked out well was Baretta (L), Bella, Colleen, Theo, Vero.  You could also put Hwa in there potentially.  There are other good teams you could put in the mix or monsters like Chasun to get the job done.

Necropolis B8

I was able to complete Necropolis B8 this week.  I am going to have to re-rune Hwa I think to get a little further in the dungeons.  Also, as mentioned above I need to get Colleens skills maxed, but I think I can beat Necro B10 with her at five stars.

Rune Update

I will update the Rune counts next week, as I accidently already combined this weeks into the mix.

Giant B10 Run Count: 103 – TBD

Dragon B10 Run Count: 358 – TBD

The_Stand Guild Wars

We maintained above 1000 rating for the week which is very exciting as we haven’t done back to back weeks above 1k for a while.  Go Team!  I did miss the mark for this week on collecting the information.

GamertagMythras PvP

After last weeks blog, several people mentioned I should try and hit F3 or C1 before worrying about Necromancer B10.  I decided to push PvP a bit.  I got to 1407 on Thursday, and then didn’t play much.  I did get to F3 just didn’t try to maintain it.

Surprisingly I still finished fairly strong.  With that said I think I am just fine progressing on with Necromancer B10 now.

My personal belief on the PvP front and trying to get to F3 or C1 before Necro is as follows.  First, off you are better off farming the glory points every week instead of pushing higher on the ladder.  I went from 200 ish wins a week to finishing last week with 66 wins.  It could have been a problem with the amount of time I spent, but those are just my thoughts.

I found it fairly easy to get to F3 once I actually set my defense and deterred people from attacking.

Hall of Heroes Water Joker

Summary

This was a week where I did not quite progress as far as I thought I was hoping.  It was also a disappointing week in Summoners War when I couldn’t clear TOAN 90 Artamiel.  In the future though I think I have a better idea how to go about some of the things I am trying to accomplish, and just know it will take time.  I was glad I was able to get to F3 in PvP during the week validating other player’s theories on PvP over Necro B10, and shared some of my feedback around it.  Until next week summoners, keep on summoning!

Summoners War a Week in Review (1/16/17 to 1/22/17)



Summoners War a Week in Review (1/16/17 to 1/22/17)

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

This week was a focus on Summoners War Giants B10 Drop Rates.  Essentially, I probably spent a majority of the week compiling all the data from the runs pre update v3.2.1.  On top of that I held a summoning session, and got myself a new Ifrit!

Theme

Analytics was the name of the game last week! The theme of this week’s blog is Summoners War decision making via analytics.  Early in the week I held a “Chasing Trophy Monsters” summoning session.  In those summoning sessions I typically purchase premium packs, then do the summoning.  This helps for multiple things with account growth.  It’s a great source of fodder, which I spent four days last week grinding experience.  The potential monster diversity as well is always a good benefit along with a chance at a game changing monster.  However, I don’t go into the sessions expecting a killer summon.  In fact, in all summoning sessions I have summoned one nat5 monster.

Chasing Trophy Monsters

In the session if you watched the video you will see as mentioned above I typically purchase the premium packs, but in this particular session I held back.  I wanted to analyze my data on mystical scroll drops of Giants B10 before making the purchases, and found some interesting numbers.

Giants B10 Drop Rates

What I find in the video is that in my opinion vs. farming giants for mystical scrolls you are better off using your crystals to purchase the mystical scrolls via premium packs.  Noticeably, this created quite a stir in the community, because current belief is you should do one of two things:

  • Never buy Premium Packs
  • Use crystals to refresh magic shop and purchase Mystical Scrolls with excess crystals

In reality my personal opinion of the two is this:

  • You should buy premium packs, but not for the necessary intent of expecting godly summons, but rather for monster diversity
  • There are trade offs with the shop, and its not even a mid-game strategy in my opinion but more for a 1-5 percenter in Summoners War

I will definitely say this though, if you look at it from a broader strategy of acquiring legendary scroll pieces, potential runes, and other items you should definitely not purchase premium packs.  It’s important to point out there was a very nicely written opinion around Magic Shop Refreshes this week with data from swarfarm.com (Which I am not a contributor to currently or have been asked to speak on their behalf).  The collective effort for aggregated data collection happening for us will immediately impact our further understanding of Summoners War.  The one caveat is like always data can be misinterpreted or misconstrued at times, and that is one issue with publishing open data.

Additionally, I hope to do additional analysis on the Magic Shop myself to present some arguments to the community.  However, as noted I still am in the midsts of processing a lot of data, and collecting additional data.  On top of that I can’t forget to keep up with the Joneses by actually playing and enjoying the game!

Rune Update

I did not make big strides in the Rune Update section this week.

Final Giant B10 Run Count: 797* Corrected for bad data

Final Dragon B10 Run Count: 227

V3.2.1 Giant B10 Run Count: 19 (will update next week)

V3.2.1 Dragon B10 Run Count: 86 (will update next week)

The_Stand Guild Wars

This week was a bad performance for us going 3-8.

A mediocre week in my personal PVP.  Made Fighter 1 for the week, and I didn’t spend a lot of time on PvP.

Notable Mentions

Experience Grinding

I was able to take Fire Ifrit Tesarion from his 5 star Summon to 6 stars.  Then I was able to level him to 36.  I spent the majority of the week focused on experience grinding.

Secret Dungeon Event Water Charger Shark

I was really hoping to spend more time on the event over the week primarily to skill up my current Water Charger Shark.  Alas, I was only able to collect 214 pieces.

World Boss

Wasn’t able to maintain C2, fell to C1 for the week.

Level 15 Runes

I leveled two runes to 15 for the week.

Summary

This was a big week outside the game, and more Summoners War Community focused for me.  I really think the data crunching will help provide the Summoners War Giants B10 Drop Rates viewpoint from a solo source to help further constructive conversations.  I am excited about my new Ifrit, and hope to try him out more in the coming weeks.  Until next week summoners, keep on summoning.

Summoners War a Week in Review (12/12/16 to 12/18/16)



Summoners War a Week in Review (12/12/16 to 12/18/16)

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

Summoners War over the past week was quite brutal to be honest.  Coming off the back of the previous weeks Rainbowmon Party with Penguin Event I really wanted to complete the whole event.  Making it definitely worse for myself, and most likely a significant loss of resources that were underutilized in my opinion.  However, sometimes that is the name of the game, and sacrifices must be made to get there.  I also deviate to some real time PvP in the World Arena Special Opening Event.

The past week also features something new to the Summoners War a Week in Review blog which was Trial of Ascension (ToA).  To date I have not covered tha, and that was an additional focus for the week. Mainly due to the ToA reset, I wanted to see how far up the ladder I could climb.

Theme

Piggy backing off the previous week, we will continue this past weeks theme in similar fashion of an experience grind with a twist.  The twist being the ascension of ToA.  I know a lot of users who read the blog like to benchmark my progression against their own gameplay.  This is one of the many reasons why I enjoy sharing even minor successes week over week, to help provide gamers with an idea of their own personal progress with Summoners War.

First and foremost as mentioned in the intro for the week I was able to complete the Rainbowmon Party with Penguin Knight Event…barely.  I finished it off with roughly nine hours left.  The last monster I decided to six star was Megan for the event.

It was definitely rough as I decided not to use experience boosters this week, and I didn’t have the necessary fodder to do it quickly coming off the week before.  It was because of not having the appropriate resources I had to slog it out the hard way.  This meant as I mentioned last week I continued the experience grind in Faimon Hell with Lapis because it is a slower grind, and I could at least build back some resources.  With the slow progression I was able to get enough scrolls to slowly meet my needs for the evolution fodder, however it was not quick.

A user I ran into on Reddit mentioned based off the last post why not farm Aiden Forest to get the necessary fodder.  I did spend time trying out this strategy, and there are a few things I wanted to mention.  They suggested doing Aiden and Faimon on Hard to not get the crafting materials, and increase scroll drops.  The thing I discovered about this was even though you get the scroll drops hopefully at a higher rate its 2 per drop instead of 5.  I also, tested out my Lushen to attempt Aiden Hell, as I do believe that’s better farming then Faimon Hell once I am able to do it.  Alas, Lushen got crushed, but now I have something additional to work on for farming.

Ultimately these are the kinds of discussions I want to drive, and look at new ways to approach Summoners War.  I think the suggestions were great, but after testing for my personal taste I decided to continue with my Faimon Hell Lapis slow grind for the week approach.  The other thing the user incited me to do was to continue the actual area progression.  I forgot that I hadn’t completed everything so I decided to close out Chiruka Remains Hard to finish off the Hard difficulty mode of the game.

Trial of Ascension

Aside from that minor distraction during the week I pursued two others.  Those other distractions were Trial of Ascension and the Third World Arena Event.  Previously for Trial of Ascension I was able to get to Stage 67.  This time I was able to improve that to 78 for Trial of Ascension Normal.  I also was at Stage 29 for TOA Hard.  I was able to best Stage 29 and improve the climb to Stage 36.

Trial of Ascension Stage 75 Beat

World Arena Special Opening Event

Last week I did take a good part of my day to pursue the new World Arena Special Opening Event.  I crafted a pretty fun interesting video of the experience.

I learned a lot about the World Arena, and definitely its difficulties or really what my gameplay lacks for live PvP interactions.  I thought jumping into battle right away would allow me to ascend the leader boards quickly, but man was I wrong.  You definitely want a good diversity of monsters when you take up Arena, and definitely some semblance of a strategy.  Which to be completely honest I really lacked that part for the World Arena.  That strategy is also a smidge different then general PvP.  Lots of similar things I saw were using Bernard for speed and attack bar boosts to quickly get off your first round of attacks on your opponents.  Another strategy was using fire epikion priest Chloe’s third skill Fanatic to make your units invincible getting off your attacks, and picking the best utilization of your monsters skills.  Overall, I am glad I spent a decent chunk of time on this, and look forward to spending more over the course of the event as it is 30 days long.

Rune Update

Aside from the experience grind, I was able to sneak away for some Giants Rune grinding over the past week.

Giant B10 Run Count: 352

Dragon B10 Run Count: 38

The_Stand Guild Wars

This week The_Stand finished 500 (6-6), and closed in with a rating of 1004.  There were definitely some guild wars we should have won, but that’s just how it goes unfortuntately.

GamertagMythras PvP

Closed in probably my highest rating ever for a week at 1298.  I am continuing the low defense until Sunday grind.

Fire Martial Cat Secret Dungeon

Notable Mentions

World Boss

I maintained my G1 status for the World Boss for the Week.

Summary

Over the course of the past week I eagerly took on some much needed distractions from the experience grind of Summoners War, but with that said was able to finish out the second six star monster for the event.  On top of all of it I made great progress in Trial of Ascension, and participated in the World Arena Special Opening Event.  Like always summoners until next week, keep on summoning.

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



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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!
