Halloween 2018 Farming Banner

Farming Summary

  • Always farm Demon Lord if possible, Demonic tends to have similar but worse drop rates.
  • Appearance Rate up is essential - it improves both the currency drops and the monster material drops.
  • Buy and Limit Break the Appearance Rate Craft Essences from the Event Store.
  • Appearance Rate up cannot go higher than 100%!
  • With Appeance Rate up, some Free Quests have nice monster drop rates.
  • The Pyramid node has incredible currency drops and for most is the place to farm for bags of gold/silver/copper.
  • But, Masters can mix and match nodes to farm the monster materials they want. 
  • For example: one can farm Graveyard (focusing on bags of copper), then Lava Tube and finally the Castle Gates to also get rare materials while clearing the shop.
  • See the tables below for summaries! Or visit the Free Quest page for specifics. 
  • Challenge Quests also drop (one time only) extra bags of currency/monster material.

Hero Elly CE

Question: Should the final copy of Hero Elly's Adventure (5* Event CE from the Shop) be farmed? Is it good/worth it?

Answer: The Craft Essence is decent for beginners, but nothing spectacular. Straight NP damage up is generally more effective while Joint Recital, Victor of the Moon, etc. are more useful in extended fights.  It does open the possibility to farm more efficiently during this event but considering the low drop rates, it is not worth pursuing. 

Of course, if you really like Elisabeth, then this question has an obvious answer.
