Summoners War a Week in Review (11/28/16 to 12/4/16)
Remember to subscribe to the weekly blog with your email, and the youtube channel for videos.
We made some major progress this week in Summoners War. On the flip side I will definitely say I have probably spent more time playing this week, then an average week due to several life events. First, off my cat Caesar is finally better. He has a tenacious knack like most cats to do stuff you wouldn’t think of. Not only does he love strings he apparently likes to eat your drawstrings off pants and sweaters. A thousand dollar vet bill later we figure out that’s what had plugged him, was a not in one of those strings. It took him about three days to pass through his system. Because of keeping a close eye on him I spent a lot of time playing Summoners War.
It is definitely because of Caesar I got a lot more game time in as I was up almost all night worrying about him, and making sure he wasn’t puking all over. With that said I accomplished two major things in Giants and hit new PvP highs. On top of Caesar I had a crazy 80+ hour work week which added to longer hours of gameplay.
Aside from the last two weeks I focused my attention on something totally new I don’t know if you heard of it, but it’s called Dragons 10. That’s right, I felt it was finally time to take down that dungeon once and for all, and not “cheat” by wasting some crystals.
Dragon B10 Beat
– Team (Iona, Theomars, Belladeon, Veromos, Konamiya – Face Team 70% Auto, Left Crystal First 95%+ Auto)
My goal for the week was to beat Dragons. Now unfortunately I believe I set off in the wrong direction not once, but two times! With that said I would like to share some Dragon B10 tips or pointers while covering how Dragon B10 rationale.
For reference here is video of beating Dragons B10 for the first time.
First off, my thoughts were my Belladeon has enough accuracy for consistent debuffs so we may as go straight to the face. Now, I can finish Dragons B9 extremely fast by this method, but as you all are aware it is extraordinarily different the Dragons B10. In reality the correct way to start Dragon B10 is left crystal, right crystal, dragon. This is the normal way to do it, not straight to the face right away. However, sometimes you can do that based off your monsters. I spent more time than most probably tweaking my team for the wrong reasons, however I eventually got the job done.
The other issue is I knew one important piece or helpful piece for completing Dragon B10 is Konamiya for cleansing your troops of dots. Veromos also works well for cleansing but typically you want him on violent runes for that. In my case he does not have violent runes on him. The other mistake I made with Konamiya was when I set off I didn’t realize right away that the skills were not fully maxed. I kept running Dragon B10, and going why is he taking so long to cast the cleanse skill. Then I was like “Rookie mistake,” and proceeded to waste about 100 scroll summons and a lot of mana for not. I literally got two garudas in the summons. I got lucky and one of my fiend’s had a garuda dungeon and I spent the next hour grinding out garudas for skills.
The last piece that was sort of holding me back without realizing it was Water Mystic Witch Megan. Lots of people suggest using her, and I full heartedly agree. My issue was that she was still at 4 stars. She is definitely high on my list now. The other thing I want to mention here is don’t underestimate resistance. I was able to complete Dragon B10 with Iona at leader. You can easily swap her for Fire Ifrit Tesarion who gives you even a higher resistance for your team then Iona. Just something to think about as an alternative approach.
Here is a video of my failed attempt that was the closest I got, and got me a lot of feedback on using Megan.
Dragon B10 Tips Summary
Here are the three things I would highlight about Dragon B10
- Left Crystal, Right Crystal, Dragon – First
- Get Megan to five star or greater
- Just be sure your monsters are all set so you don’t waste time like me, points 1 and 2 more important
- Consider Tesarion as an alternative leader
Giant B10 Update
This week I switched my team up and made it more of a speed team with Jamire in lead. This led me to some personal bests on the run.
This week instead of giving a rune update I have switched to a new method. Every run I complete I take a screenshot of what was dropped. My goal is to get around one thousand runs, and calculate drops for everyone. I will also do this for Dragon B10 also, and then share the results. Here is where I am currently at:
Giant B10 Run Count: 233
Dragon B10 Run Count: 38
The_Stand Guild Wars
This week was better than las week for The_Stand and the guild wars. We ended at 1006 rating, and had a winning record for the week of seven wins and five losses. Going into the last battle we were at 1025, and considered not doing the last battle. Unfortunately by accident there was some miscommunication and the vice leader accidently started one.
This was another personal record week for PvP! I was able to hit over 1300 during the week for the first time, and even better I finished at 1310.
After last week’s 220 attacks I didn’t think I could top it, and I was wrong. I was able to squeak out a 250+ attack week. Again, really racking up those glory points. I should be going on a glory point shopping spree one of these days!
Free Rune Removal Event (FRR)
I did want to highlight a few things here. I think everyone knows the obvious to definitely take advantage of the Free Rune Removal day, but I also want to point out the importance in other areas people might not be thinking about. One big area is when you are swapping out your runes on your “A Team” of Monsters this really allows you to boost the rest. Typically you are trading up runes at different stages of the game, and this then allows you to pass those nice runes down the chain to less used monsters. This is extremely important because it helps upgrade for things like the World Boss.
The other thing to keep in mind is sometimes you might as well stop selling runes so you can play around with you non “A Team” monster builds. It can be fun, and help again with progression. In my case I typically only keep six star runes and sell the rest unless they are five star legendary. When I know it’s a FRR I stop selling runes that week for this specific reason.
I swapped out 5 runes on my six star monsters, and 10 plus on my five star monsters. This was a very successful FRR event, and I was just glad I had the time to do it.
I was able to make full upgrades across the board this week, and improve all my monster lines over the weekend. I will also note that I spent roughly six hours Saturday moving runes around. The one thing that can hinder your progress is when you do up trade on runes with your “A Team” you may not have the mana to actually make the runes better. Keep this in mind, because it could be a short term setback if you haven’t planned for it.
Piggy Bank Event
Secret Dungeon Water Living Armor
With the mana farmed from Faimon Hell I was able to level up a six star rune from 12 to 15.
I was able to level a six star rune to 15.
Jamire became a six star monster this week, and my new team lead for Giants B10. I was able to quickly level him with Wind Angelmon from purchasing premium packs from my last Chasing Trophy Monsters Video.
I crafted about 10 violent runes this week. I was able to pick up one six star Legendary violent rune.
World Boss I hit G2 for the first time, but somehow finished F3. What’s kind of bothering me over the last few weeks is once I hit G1 I swear somehow there was a new mass amount of players that have been playing again that have pushed me back down to F3.
Megan, Su, Aria, Emma, Gildong, Trevor all became a part of my monster crew. Yes, all were awakened this week.
Huge week in Summoners War with a lot of upside and lessons learned. I hope you were able to take some personal pointers away this week on things like Dragons B10 runs, and like me were able to utilize the FRR day. Until next week Summoners, keep on summoning.
