MoonGoddessQuickWalkthrough

Introduction

  • This is a rerun of one of the earliest events in the game, the Moon Goddess event. The event is a straightforward farming event and retains the original's low difficulty. However, drop rates have been rebalanced so that the grind is less intense compared to the original run.
  • Max Limit Breaking CEs in the rerun now gives bonus drops! This is different from the original run, where MLB CEs had the same drop bonus as non-MLB CEs.
  • All event CEs give bonus drops to BOTH of the event items, so there is no need to switch event CEs based on which node is being farmed.
  • Buying more than 2 copies of the Event Shop CE (Moonlight Fest) is very expensive and is often not worth the investment.

Post-Main Quest Farming

AP Efficiency Route

  • The below farming route is for those aiming for the Monster Materials in the shop, and are not interested in MLBing Moonlight Fest.
  • It also assumes that Ascensions Pieces and Monuments are skipped.
  • Moonlight Fest is an undertuned CE that pales in comparison to competing CEs and can be safely skipped outside of collection purposes.
  • Buying more than 2 copies is very expensive and for most Masters will not offer enough bonus dumplings to offset the purchase price.
  • This is especially the case if a Master has access to gacha CEs or a bunch of Mooncell Automatons.

MLB Moonlight Fest Route

  • The below farming route is for collectors who wish to get an MLB copy of Moonlight Fest.
  • Masters who wish to farm the Ascension Pieces and Monuments should also consider purchasing 1-2 additional copies of Moonlight Fest
  • A note on the final Dumplingx5000 copy: leave this copy until the very end as the extensive farming required may yield a CE drop of its own. The Dumplingx5000 copy is still a good backup in case of bad luck.

All Free Quests

Below is a full list of drop rates for each Free Quest, as well as the estimated best CEs to bring for each quest. The best CE suggestions are based on limited drop rate data, and the number of runs are particularly low for the 10AP, 20AP, and 30AP Free Quest nodes (approx. 10 runs each), so those suggestions should be taken with a grain of salt.

Should I Use Apples?

  • TL;DR: The event can be cleared on natural AP. Clearing the shop may require a few apples for newcomers.
  • If your only goal is to complete the Main Quest line (for the Summon Tickets), no apples are needed. Even with no bonus CEs used at all, there is enough natural AP regen to gain enough Rare Dumplings to unlock all Main Quest Episodes before even three days of the event pass.
  • For returning Masters, it is possible to almost clear both shops (except for monuments/pieces) just with natural AP, assuming one has a Moonlight Fest CE (preferably MLB) from the previous event run, or the Event Gacha CEs. It is only worth using Apples if you are in desperate need of shop Ascension materials and are coming up short.
  • For first-time Masters that did not participate in the original event and do not have copies of Moonlight Fest:
    • With natural AP recovery, it is possible to complete the entire Main Quest line and clear a good chunk of the event shop if you start with just the free copy of Mooncell Automaton (reward from Episode 0) and no other bonuses, provided that you:
    • 1) Always choose a support with the best CE (MLB if possible)
    • 2) Buy and immediately equip the Moonlight Fest CEs from the shop whenever you can afford them.
