>One stone lost forever because I can't clear it
Just noticed that I have 300k meme points if I sell every monster I don't need. Should I buy a Ra Dragon if I have 2x DKali, Indra and A.Isis? I also have A.Ra so it feels like a waste though.
Go for it, but not if you're selling non-dupes or monsters you need for your secondary teams.
DRa you've got his entire team
DShiva if you want an easy time farming +eggs
DYomi is somewhere between DShiva and DRa, can clear more difficult content than DShiva with considerably less effort than DRa.
I already have Shiva Dragon, but I can't clear arena with A.Ra
Yomi Dragon seems like fun but I don't think I have any good subs for that team.
Get the DRa and see how fast you can clear arena before arena 2 comes around. Which should be 3 months or so. But my guess is that arena 2 will have more direct counters to the current MP dragons
DKali is bad on A.Ra considering the different options you have available. She is simply not a necessity like she is on Ra Dragon teams and her active robs you of 3 orbs you could otherwise use for damage. Haloween Kali and Izanagi are much better options in a general case. But if you don't have HKali or Izanagi then Dkali is your only choice :\
It's not like you guys care about A.Ra anyway considering that the game8 tierlist is taken as word of god in this thread.
Time to debunk this shitty meme again
>her active robs you of 3 orbs you could otherwise use for damage
how about when i want to do damage and heal with one active? Also unbindable.
I already have 2 lkali actives, I don't need a fucking 3rd one
>caring about game8
only retards do that
> if you don't have HKali or Izanagi then Dkali is your only choice :\
let me activate Ra. oh wait both are bound cause they don't have 2 bind resists and isis isnt up so im fucked.
What exactly have you debunked?
>how about when i want to do damage and heal with one active? Also unbindable.
Dkali's active does indeed rob you of AT LEAST 3 orbs that could otherwise be used for prongs. And what about healing? If you can't one shot most floors that arent monsters with 7+ million hp with a 25-100x multiplier then you shouldn't be playing Awoken Ra to begin with.
>I already have 2 lkali actives, I don't need a fucking 3rd one
Yeah, you don't need a 3rd lkali active but you need a 3rd lkali active + 3 heal orbs. Pathetic counterargument. Lkali active is just as useful in situations where a boss like beel will fuck your board up. There are limited situations where I prefer DKali's over LKali's active because most times unless i get hit by a preemptive nothing really gets a chance to hit me in a dungeon.
An izanagi damage buff is much more valuable than a board changer in certain situations, such as one shotting around a damage shield like zaerog infinity's.
>let me activate Ra. oh wait both are bound cause they don't have 2 bind resists and isis isnt up so im fucked.
Awoken Ra isn't bindable so I'll assume you were in such a hurry to debunk my 'meme' that you mistyped Lkali/Hkali. The cooldown on Awoken Isis' active is three turns. Chances are very small that I would ever not account for that, if i know beforehand which floor has bind potential.
Stupid arguments really, especially the comment about dkali being unbindable. A recent descend boss has an ability that disables your awakenings. My feeling is that more and more bosses will have this preemptive as time goes on.
>Dkali's active does indeed rob you of AT LEAST 3 orbs that could otherwise be used for prongs.
Cause i need a heal inbetween ilfive and beelz.
>Yeah, you don't need a 3rd lkali active but you need a 3rd lkali active + 3 heal orbs.
>such as one shotting around a damage shield like zaerog infinity's.
use isis active u tard
>Chances are very small that I would ever not account for that, if i know beforehand which floor has bind potential.
"i'm so good that i don't even consider a possibility of being fucked up"
>Cause i need a heal inbetween ilfive and beelz.
That's why you manage orbs to ensure you get a heal as you're bursting lifive down. Do you not plan your moves?
>"i'm so good that i don't even consider a possibility of being fucked up"
This is why you plan your turns. You're also making a huge mistake by disregarding Isis absurdly low cooldown.
>"I plan my turns so there is literally zero chance of me getting fucked by RNG!!"
When what i actually said was that "Chances are very small that I would ever not account for that, if i know beforehand which floor has bind potential."
Stop overexaggerating what I'm arguing here. DKali has teams she's an S tier sub on and others where she just isn't. It's just an opinion at the end of the day and it's worked for me in a lot of dungeons which is why I have been and will advise my friends in /padg/ about it.
So who's else is putting a suspension on all MP store purchases until the new Arena 2.0 is tested?
With only enough saved for a single dragon i was thinking, oh well maybe I'l get a Radra or even a Yomidra.
Then first of the new MP dragons is teased... Maybe i should wait until I see the rest of the new series before making a decision.
Now arena being revised for balancing? Wish my mp accured interest, or there were some MP savings bonds.
dont trust no rainbow bitch

>"Chances are very small that I would ever not account for that, if i know beforehand which floor has bind potential."
aka "I know I can fuck up and there is a foolproof team, but hey fuck that shit more dps!!!!"
>will advise my friends in /padg/ about it
>my friends in /padg/
i legit chuckled at this. put on your trip again.
i bet you were the fucking moron a few threads back who didn't even know how to latent his ra-d lmao.
>can't even oneshot gift of holy beast
you are not ready for the sakuwaku
I'm still not sure what brought in the wave of jp players and shitposting cause I remember old padg being primarily NA based.
Was it because of that one dude who gave out a few taobao'd accounts a few years back or what.
I thought ultimate arena was supposed to be one of the hardest dungeons in the game before the introduction of mecha hera
Why are they making changes to it then? Too many jp whales clearing it already?
You are way past the time to git gud.
Should I reroll kappa
When i feel like foolproof nofuckups, I play >>127882227. Unfortunately that team gets boring sometimes and I occasionally feel like playing something like awoken anubis, kenshiro or awoken ra which isn't as safe but incredibly fun. This isnt a competition its a mobile game that you play to pass the time.
No RCV descends and challenge dungeons are a thing though, and I did use dkali on my awoken Ra team before I actually went into those dungeons sometimes blind and managed to get through without using the dkali active at all. The extra 3/4 heal orbs you get on average is nothing. I can plan around it. I can plan around binds. I can manage orbs. It's most of the fun I get out of this game.
Everyone makes mistakes but saying you can't plan around something as simple as a bind when awoken isis is available and haste actives are a thing is just nonsensical to me.
please explain this kappa me me to me
what does an assstretching water imp have to do with curlies?
well, I did it
I probably wont regret it too since all my red cards are fucking useless and I doubt I'll ever use shiva, dongsnakes et al
I made sure to use around 10 on goemons and rodins first
>put on a trip so I can filter you
>take off your trip and leave
Not him but its one or the other m8
I don't really see how asking a question makes me a moron, perhaps you can elaborate and help me to understand. I never claimed to know everything about this game but when i debate my position i'm just met with responses that seem to overexaggerate a point or read into things incorrectly.
From where I stand it looks like you're employing ad hominem but i could be wrong.
So. Which waifu is the most useful
aside from the kali whores
No. Since I only found 4chan circa ~2 months ago I've learned that a trip might adversely affect discussion about the game itself. I'm sorry that I began using it in the first place at all but I thought it might have been required for people to not think that I was a troller or something.
You didn't waste your time helping and I genuinely appreciated your post. I got my first arena clear thanks to you. And I'll admit that my unorthodox opinion about sub dkali on awoken ra teams is sometimes inoptimal. This is the last time I will talk about it probably.
The awoken Chinese god's are quite useful imo

>having to use durga to deal 1.5~3 million per monster
13 dark orb enhance
Christmas haku for 1.5 atk when 5 orb row with at least one enhance, plus yomi full multiplier and x3 for a row of 5 with one enhanced?literally every dark orb that drops is enhanced. Not trying to insult but I mean it's basic math
I usually just play it safe and durga burst down whatever boss I'm against on the first turn if I can, granted the only time I get a decent damage spike is I save orbs at the bottom for a few turns, only other decent damage spike team I run is a lkali team with awoken sakuya for a full x60 multiplier, any suggestions for good subs to switch Kali iza and durga for?
I have ~600MP to blow
Which team is the most consistent for arena 1 clears at the moment?
The standard RaDragon in >>127882017 or Yomi Dragon?
Also, how suitable as a lead for arena is the new Awoken Lucifer?
even if you don't lead with him he's still a good sub since he has huge stats,generate orbs (and although not many his skill has haste) and has fingers
if you don't want a lead i think him and the new mech are your best option since all the other dragon just have shit + haste
>Sol is a Fire/Attacker ShivaD.
>Gets a Dragon Install uvo that makes him 5x ATK to Fire/Attacker or Dragon types.

>redditor goes "btw i'm a gril"
>homoku try to push his gay agenda
>newfag retard try to show his theorycraft skills
>someone stalks watsu's tweets
the other attentionwhores must be jealous as fuck now
So I'm trying to make an awoken Sakuya team to try out that constant extra multiplier instead of Awoken Ra being at the mercy of skill delay. What's the go to Awoken Sakuya team? Or should I just exchange Ra for her in my usual team (LKalix2, DKali and Muse)?
Those redditors didn't realize that trips or any form of recognition here is earned by contributing a significant amount of content to the community.
Watsu has actually done a lot and contributes OC so he gets due recognition, but the others like blvck, pink, space, okufag and hakufag can fuck themselves and go back where they came from.
The thing I care about is skill. I want to discuss pad with people who know what they are talking about, not mid-lategame awoken bastet shitters who are dime a dozen at reddit/facebook. If any of those fucks posts an arena clear they are cool by me. Otherwise they can go back to reddit.
And after all that buildup and hype toward it too... I agree anon. I bet half the posters here were still on reddit at that point, so they don't know what we're talking about.
Well 1/4 is not bad at all desu when you consider how bad the rates are
How many light pys you have though? Wasting all that light exp must hurt if your other subs aren't leveled yet. I would use pys on her.
Everything else but Venus has easily farmable fodder anyway.
There's no other reliable metric to distinguish the shitters here from the people with something of worth to say.
In the age of relatively recent massive powercreep, which in my opinion started with the awoken egypt 1 series, arena is the only true test of skill.
>lmao fuck off space
I literally have no idea who space is. I mean its unfortunate but what other metric can you use to separate a shitter from a non-shitter other than the hardest content in NA currently?
>People believing that's really Watsu
Nigga's in jail
1700×3.375×6.25×(1.25×2)×1.25 = 112,060 damage
wow so 2 dongs and all ariel will hit for on a thor/saria team is 100k?
1700×3.375×10×(1.25×3)×1.5 = 322,700
So use a skill and get 3 dongs, 322k damage?
I get way more Chinaballs than DubMythlits from that thing.
I guess I'm a newfag too since I haven't seen him contribute anything of worth other than the lewd contest last year, which didn't even work out.
What else has he done except that and blog incessantly here?
When Awoken FAL comes out in NA, should I change my Haku back to D/D? His LS is geared towards rows much moreso than dongs. It would feel kinda bad, but the only team I used AHaku on was DMeta anyways and now she'll probably just sub for him too.
>can you not
I don't really mean to shitpost any more so I'll actually explain.
Phrases like "Can we just not," "I just can't," and similar are extremely common phrases from tumblerites. It's one of the easiest ways to spot them when they crawl into threads on /a/ (well, besides their shitty art). Insults like "pissbaby" are common too since heaven forbid they call anyone a faggot.
looking at japs and chinks playing it doesn't seem like it matters at all
actually, it looks like the haste, sbr, finger and good rcv makes awoken haku better for the team
My friend gave me shit for dumping everything on my I&I. I just beat Starlight Sanctuary 5 for the first time with her. Didn't even use any turn delays. Now I wonder how far she can take me in descends to collect materials for eventual better leaders.
They're fine as a lead, go dump your shit on your friend in return.
Rolles these during godfest on primary account. Got an alt with Isis also, should I keep either of them as starter accounts if Im not planning on IAP?
Looking for yomidra friends, plan on hypering as soon as possible
It's a poverty team since I just started a couple months ago. I have one more snowglobe dragon but I don't know if I want to use it on Karin.
That team is good enough for early and midgame. Karin is good, safe to invest and ideal sub for I&I, feed her that snowglobe.
You should seek subs with blue row awakening to use instead of Nut, UY and Famiel eventually though.
yeah he even put the /padg/ links redirected by his website some time ago.
I have another Karin. Should I bother leveling both?
I also have a Sadalmelik. Is he worth investing tamadras in? His active seems pretty good for this team and he has two rows.
And I have an Isis that I'm working on evolving.
>not being able to play with both hands
would you believe me if i told you i burned my thumb too? i was picking something and it turned out to be hot as fuck and i burned both my thumb and index finger
well i guess it's time to play with the pinky
middle finger is OP. Assuming it's your longest finger, try making a grip almost as if you are holding a pencil, and orient it with your middle finger slightly more protruding than normal. The far side of your middle finger should be the only thing contacting the screen. It's really fun and super fancy.
>try making a grip almost as if you are holding a pencil, and orient it with your middle finger slightly more protruding than normal.
Isn't that how Reco plays? I always try to look at his finger and he always seem to be using his finger differently than people would normally.
Act like you're a crab with just your thumb, index and middle finger, then try to follow along with what I said in the above post.
Mine too, but for people that are good at it, this play style would be like second nature
Is this ok? I also have lots of regular pandoras, akechi and oku
Don't have Nut or Hatsume so would the blue cyberdragon with 2 rows work? It's a flex spot anyway for AIsis if I ever need a bind cleric.
Metal Dragons or lits to evo 5 shitters. Need 5 blues.
Pretty sure it's with at least another prong or 2+ more dark combo. This is what Radra gets from matching RLD prongs and 3 orb combos of BGH for 6 combo total.
So I've found that while my A.Thor team can clear Mechdragon Rush with 100% success rate, easily and safely, it's kind of slow.
Maybe I just need to play it more and get more into the hang of it; I've found that I should be more liberal with my skill usage since I can always just stall later until they refresh.
But even so, it's slower than...
I hate how with A.Bastet though, 1 mistake and I'm dead.
Guess you can't have everything
I've been playing A.Bastet for months, I've been staying at Hotel OSOBOS for ages.
Her damage is retarded, but like I said, the fragility of spike teams is annoying. One mistake and I'm dead.
Farming mechdragon rush for an hour with A.Bastet is tiring.
So I have awoken Lakshmi but no good subs
Good sub suggestion for Lakshmi teams plz or did I waste my time on Lakshmi as she might be a better sub
Also, what makes a good lkali team?
On mine I use lkali,Halloween Kali, ult l/g valk (chibi with 3 prongs ) Xmas sakuya , l/w metaron and awoken sakuya friend? Crappy imo but gets almost everything except true endless challenges 8+ and the arena , halp plox I know I missing a strong component somewhere I just can't figure that part out
What makes dkali better vs lkali both yield a x36 lkali being easier to actually pull off vs the whopping damage of dkali
Yeah dkali has better stats when maxed but I don't see a difference honestly
I see plenty of people use lkali as a leader.
Think about it, she's stronger than older x25 leads.
She has two prongs and an active that synergizes with her leader skill.
I think she's a decent lead
I think you mean "I"
Everyone's box is different, outside of hyper whales. lkali is a fine leader for much of the game's content.
It's blanket statements like yours just now that make our community shit.
Don't buy from a shady dude
bind to email or w/e that new option is
buy a stone so you have purchase history.
I bought a few accounts way back when killua came out. I only log in 2 but the rest are still in friends so they aren't banned yet either I guess.
Not really viable to sell stacked accounts. On JP you'll get get pennies for even the most whaled and NA gamers are cheap shits to begin with.

I already forgot the name of the Asian that won us all the rewards.
This is probably the extent of the updates. Hoping for Nepnep and Astaroth as well.
Which PAD would win a fight against all other PADs IRL?
Does anybody actually use Padherder's friend search function? Do you notice any boost in requests when you update it?
Whats the best + egg dungeon ATM on JP?
Are there any that I can just button farm
I used to, when I was progressing through the normals and technicals with shitty ragtag Bastet and Red Sonia teams. But I realized how much of a waste it is, especially once I saw how much my stone income was slowing since I was nearing the end of all those normal/technical clears.
Though I still might rage stone every now and then if I just get to the end of a hard descend and barely lose after a few tries. It's either stone for stamina for a few more attempts, or just say fuck it and finish it right then and there. Obviously not the best decision, but it's called a RAGE stone for a reason.
I guess I've pissed away a number of potential GF rolls in stones but y'know what? Those were probably gonna be shit pulls anyway.
Can someone explain how this active works?
Like if I use the active skill before I use an orb changer and sweep the wave before a Hera preemptive do I get the damage reduction?
Thank you. So it only applies when something hits you? Just to clarify.
Why doesn't it just say 25% reduction then? Why it gotta be so vague?
>The arena was made with a concept of the hardest dungeon in the game, it will keep on renewing itself in the future as it was initially intended.
>There are plans on bringing back older levels of the arena whether as a special dungeon or even urgent in the future as well.
Like all defensive actives, the shield will keep its timer until the "next" enemy's move. So yes it will stay in tact to tank a preemptive hit if you sweep the floor before it. There are exceptions like 1% resolve bosses such as Awoken Parvati though who will do a suicide resolve move to do a skill and let you advance to the next floor; this will count as the "next" enemy move so it will waste your shield timer.
I think Japanese games in general are infamous for vague skill texts, it's mostly so casuals aren't scared off with all the "scary numbers".
How trash is this team? Everything is skilled.
the only alt. dungeons that can have bs preemptives are the ones that drop shynpys and bubpys
most of the good light monsters already have easy to get skill up fodder and blue is the color of shit anyway
it's the 2016 sonia team pretty much, but not as dumb and has more spike
I&I/Ryune is the good version of it
Krishna is outdated, wait for new evo or awoken, unlike Sarasvati he lacks damage
Yeah Sarsavati totally lacks damage. No enhance.
I'm pretty drunk dawg.
Assuming everyone was max skilled and luci already had his 10 turn morning star, how well would something like this theoretically work?
Shouldn't you at least use the same subs to make a fair comparison?
Using PDC to do all my number crunching.
Top row: 5 OE+ 3 sets of 4dongs all orbs enhanced
>saras 11.4 mil
>krishna 14.2 mil
Bottom Row: 5 OE+2 rows all orbs enhanced
>saras 18.2 mil
>krishna 25.2 mil
Just wait till you roll the rem again, the next godfest is probably like a week or two away.
Using Kamui with Hermes isn't a good idea bc you'll be running out of green orbs to change pretty fast
>trying to farm Sanada and Akechi skill ups from the coin biweekly
>burned 3 stones for stamina plus the free one for completing the dungeon

Pys for both and a bonus 5k MP it is.

What exactly are people referring to when they're describing the early/mid/late/super-late game? I've read a couple of guides that describe the early game as everything up to Castle of Satan, but it seems like you can clear up to that in less than a day as long as your roll isn't garbage.
The way I see it is like this:
Early game - normals, techs, demoted descends like two heroes, zeus, biweeklies dragons etc.
Mid game - legends and mythicals of dungeons and descends, usually older descends that can be cleared with little to no +egg/REM investment.
End/Late game - mythical of newest dungeons with the hardest gimmicks, currently the C9/10, coop dungeons and arena.
Also being on Endgame implies you can speedfarm any kind of reworked old dungeon, like 5x4 coins, speedrunning stuff for +eggs etc
When I started, just clearing descends like Dios and H-Ur once was already pretty endgame stuff. Things got fucked up.
>tfw halamine will never upload a pad gameplay video on his channel again because people constantly shat on him for his garbage puzzling with the meme ra dragon arena team
thank god, i was wondering why he suddenly disappeared from murai's pad videos
mix isn't really that much better though
I've been running Urd/Urd or Urd/AShiva teams. Every floor is vulnerable to delays so you can use Cao Cao and Echdina.
i just saw a board with 8 greens and killed the thing, it's called mindless farming for a reason, most of the time im not even looking at the enemy im fighting or my hp
I'll just use my Belldandy there every time
>I'll just use my Belldandy there every time
I have Urd, no Verdandi. The teams are very similar given the over lap of F/W or W/F cards. I have x2 Cao Cao, CLiu Bei, and x2 Liu Bei.
I tried leading with her for more comfy but I had some nodamage issues so I just use Bastet as usual now. Also the preempt fuckers lower your multiplier every time which fucks you even more.
