I can ALMOST do 8-10 but the Magic Knights hurt like crazy. Remove them from 8-10 then it's an entirely different story.

With my knight I have no problem. It's my wiz that bothers me because I can't auto it even at the level 7 stages. I'm planning to temporarily switch to a VIT99 but I don't know how effective that would be. The highest I can auto/afk for now is 6-1 or 6-2. And it sucks!!! Totally not worth it because it takes too long to level up. My poor wiz lagging behind. Sob.

 

Wow, that's still pretty awesome.  I think we can all agree that Magic Knights in numbers are a huge pain.  The wiz definitely gets the short end of the stick in SD.  I saw some people mention safety wall, but i haven't bothered to try it.  Too busy focusing on my sin.  :P

 

So no guarantee of an S or SS. I'm torn. Will it be worth the risk?

 

Are you able to use diamonds to get special jewel stones?  So far i'm 2 for 2 with getting (SS) when using those.  You may want to check the "compounding merc" thread in Game Information for typical results, but i think you have a PRETTY high chance of getting at least (S).  At the worst (R5S normal), you lose some HPA and HP, but gain a significant amount of def, mdef, and aspd.  In merc battles, speedy skills are what kills!  :lol:

 

Just gotta weigh what you have to lose vs what you have to gain.  Personally, i'd do it lol.

What do you mean by this mate?
I can only compound my IfritS (S) to Wanderer Rogue (S) and Magic Knight (S) ?
I am not sure about this -- coz I've tried my Abyss Knight S (S) and it allows me to choose my Bloody murderer (SS) as ingredient.
But I don't have the complete ingredients so I haven't tried evolving it yet.
Let me know if my understanding is wrong. :mellow:


Im not sure, i tried putting S merce as base and i got the other merce(just r4/ lvl 99 too)that it needs, but i cant put it. I'm not sure if i did it right that time tho. You can try it, if it works then im wrong.

I don't think it is true.  I just used R4 Heavenly Golem and R4 (SS) Ribbon Warlock to evolve my R4 (S) Happy Baphomet (will show screenshots in separate post).

 

The only limitations i can see are for some of the R5 recipes for the 3rd gen mercs, which require a mix of R4 and R4S mercs as sacrificial lambs.

Does it says wrong ingredients? because that's what it says when you pull out a mercenary not in its recipe. Or it just don't allow you to pick it?

 

Yes that's what I notice, especially for Robots R5, they require r4S, the picture looks the same with r4 but it wont let you use them.

Hahaha!  Do it!  Do it!  Do it!

 

Honestly, if you have no problems with merc battles or SD with what you currently have then waiting it out is fine.  But if what you have is expendable and you have much to gain, then by all means take a chance!  The consolation prizes are not terrible.  Just make sure you use those special jewel stones!

Not a biggy mate. This is an info thread. We are all prone to misconceptions. Good thing we have a lot of buddies here to help us get the accurate information. :)

 

It could have been a bug that we need to file. Either way, its a good information.

 

@huy99, I am leveling the cat now. LOL!

SOOOOBBBB. I am about to give up on my wiz. LOL. I want to level it up fast but it needs attention and focus. AFK/FULL AUTO is impossible at stages 7 and up. And that is where one gets a decent experience percentage.

So.... It's either:

I let it auto at 6-2 where it can BUT not get enough experience points. Advantage is I get to afk and do other chores stuff at home (LOL), but really takes time before I even get 1%.

Or,

I get safetywall as suggested by many so i can repeat stages 7-5 and up and get enough exp points, but have to play with an undivided attention.

Sucks balls.


If there are wizards out there who could suggest good stats and equipment to afk level 7s, please share your input. For now, I guess I am convinced I would max up my knight first.

Thanks for the replies, everyone.

https://imageshack.com/i/p8dGgcrBp - glitch still shows my R4 Happy Bapho (temporarily)

https://imageshack.com/i/pbIG37Kdp - my little Bapho family (until i tried to enter a merc battle and R4 abandoned us lol)

https://imageshack.com/i/kqe9V0zjp - stats so far at lvl 50 (SS gains 39 hp, 10.5 atk, 9.5 matk, etc per lvl)

 

Kinda annoyed that the lvl up special jewel stone only got me lvl 11 (equivalent to one poring?), but definitely glad i got SS.

 

Please share your R5 screenshots if you have some!

Ah, i didn't realize you needed the cat to evolve your peco.  Go for it!  That R5S (SS) is built like a tank!

No. The (s) or (ss) doesn't matter. But r4 and r4s are 2 different kinds of mercs.

Nice!!! Looks awesome and already has great hp, crit, aspd, and matk at lv 20!  What's the atk % for Lv 1 Meteor Summon III??  Curious what it is at Lv 2 and 3 too.  Meteor I was 55%, 85%, and 115%.  Meteor II was 130%, 150%, and 170%.
