    I am going to use this thread to try to motivate me to get these last 7 characters done. I don't SB as much as I once did, but hopefully updating this thread every couple of days will help keep me motivated. Maybe.

    Update. Grace done. I am going to consider moving around who has what companion, but for the time being I am going with Samupi and Zan with the Ochu, and the rest with DC's or Demon.

    You're almost there :3

    Amazora will be your biggest challenge, and (without considering her low SB) I also get better results with Demon than Ochu, so good choice :3
    Hope you manage to finish your last batch soon :)

    Looks like you should drop grace and go for the sword % boost from korin. Keep the demon on amazora and put the other on Samupi. Ochu Harrold and Burbaba. Dc on zan and korin.

    Good luck and I hope you have energy to enjoy gold road when you finish the silvers.

    Good luck! I'm not far away from you.
    I still have to SB :
    - Bahl (around 85%, already have maxed her recode)
    - Ra'prow (85%, don't want the recode)
    - Pahr (80%)
    - Sh'berdan (50%, I don't want the recode)
    - A'merpact (50%, but I first want to recode him to 100-luck before fullin SBing its silver version)
    - Nakupi (50%, same thing: first recode him. But only because it's a rather cheap 100-luck character, not for its power)
    - S'naip (still need to pull him and re-recode him once more before SBing him)
    - Grace, that I'm keeping at 30% right now, I will choose a fate for her once we have her lambda version details

    Grace was closest to being completed so I elected to keep her in. Once she is done, hopefully by the end of the week. I will Likely go Ochu on Harold and Zan and keep the Demon on Burbaba and Amazora. Once Burbaba is done I will throw the Demon on Zan and see what gold/rainbow gets to go on sb adventures.

    I have 25 right now, but at the rate I am going I might have 50!

    Here is another quick update. With the Senala, Sayu and Jennish rate up event I decided to spend 30 energy to get either Senala or Sayu. Yolo! Pulled Raprow^ and Gats, so it wasn't a horrible pull. But the 4 other pulls were Burbabax2 and Haroldx2. While I would have liked those silver pulls be either Amazora or Zan, Burbaba being done now isn't such a horrible thing.

    I've also just switched the companions around, to see if I like it better. If I don't, I will switch things back around.

    And then there were three.. Korin and Harold are done. Now it's down to Samupi, Zan and Amazora. She had an Ochu on her but she didn't gain as much as she did when she had a demon on her. That allows me to add in Lunato who has forever to go. Rikken and Pupropu round out the team of six. I think if I am lucky (and motivated), I should have the B's done by Christmas.

    Then the task is going to be who I luck bonus as I pull the recoded version. I will likely LB a Bahl^ who doesn't have a monster requirement of one the of the Kinos/8-bits, but will hold off on Snaip^ since I rely on 8 bit Golem for Shin'en farming. I don't think I will end up ever LBing Raprow^ or a Burbaba^. So many choices.

    And then there were 2.. Amazora and Zan both got a jump with Yolo pulls. I really have a hard time saying no to my kids when they want to pull a character. They get disappointed when I pull a silver. On the flip side I now own Snaip^.

    With Samupi done I have added a Z mage to the mix so now I am sbing in 5-8 versus 2-1 and using bait and wait. Unfortunately once the mage is I don't have a floor killer like the Z mage. But I'll cross that bridge when I get to it.

    Just a quick update. Zan is now done. Amazora is sitting at 90.5. I think I should be able to get her done in the next couple of days.

    Once Amazora is done I've got to get a few recodes done. Alika, Zerro are on the definately going to do list, since I've already got there Z's. I am on the fence if I am going to LB KokoZ.

    So much materials are going to be needed, and I haven't been all that great at farming extra mats. Shame on me.

    So I made it to Golden Road on Christmas like I predicted.

    I've recoded Alika for Luck and have recoded KokoZ, though in hindsight I don't really need a spear luck boosted.

    Zerro will have to wait for LB since I've got to farm MH. 34-10 isn't cooperating with me and have dropped mostly DWH. Though now that I am thinking about it, maybe I don't want to LB her. I'll think about it further.

    I do have Snaip^, the trick with him is going to be 8-bit Golem. These 8 bits / Kino's need to be in the rotation always.

    I'll let you know what my first golds are when I decide to pull. I would like to get The King and Pupropé Λ done before I pull. But if I can't get them done before this rate up for Mizel is over I'm going to have to pull.

    Totally couldn't get The King or Puprope Λ done. Unfortunately, I blew 10 Energy on PoF, and ended up only being able to roll 4 times. 3x dupes (36AIS, Czekras, Raprow^) and one new (Korin ^).

    Damn RNG.

    I almost finished golden road this summer. At a time I had only 2 characters to finish, just before they added a bunch of gold lambdas.

    I gave up going up rainbow, and changed strategy. As I sticked to 10/2 pulls when I was silver, now I stick only to Z-fest events. On the Z increased chance events, I pulled something like 1 out of 3 Z-class.

    I now miss only 5 Z-class characters : I miss Peyna, Sweiz, Amazora, Selena and Lacuma. I have 3 currently beeing SB'd, one of them almost done.

    I hope a new Z increased event will come these days, as a new TB version will come up and all content for the current version is available. The last pull event even include no new characters.

    Over the weekend I went a little crazy and got Golem to 100 Luck and recoded Snaip. I pulled him again and regrinded Golem to 100 L and recoded Snaip to 98 L. I've since pulled him a third time so he'll go into the SB team as soon as I get either of the two rainbows in the mid 80s there.

    Getting a little crazy with the recodes I decided to recode Bahl, which I am kicking myself for not doing sooner. Bahl^ and Snaip^ along with Kraken, Yukken^, Gatz^, and Palpa^ make Shin'en runs easy peasy.

    Since I am on Silver road I have to give some serious thought on if I want to 100L Amperact and Diana or just SB the ^ forms when I pull them. (Already have Diana^). It would be nice to have an Ice and Fire mage at 100L. Those Temporal Helixes are going to give me fits, though. Still haven't completed chapter 35 so my only source is the TP, which I've kind of neglected from a helix stand point.

    So many things to do and to consider. I wish I recoded Bahl much sooner though.

    But Bahamut and Leviathan are fire/Ice mages and are more than acceptable alternatives. They also don't cost energy to LB to 100 and are on a permanent rotation.

    The only benefit to pact/daiana is to obtain the materials for Mizell and Senala easier. Or to have aoe 100 luck. They're a pretty heavy energy investment.

    Okay, the new luck grind has been out for a bit. After much mulling over things, I've decided to go the LB route instead of the SB route to get to golden road. I had Snaip at about 90% and Bahl at about 70% SB, when the new luck grind hit and that lovely A, Iskar. So instead of being about 40% sb from golden I went to about 140%.

    After grinding GatZ to 100 and getting Amina^, YukkenZ and AlikaZ to Pandable 100L units, I've found I enjoy doing that more. I think part of it is the fact that I can predict that I will get at least .1 (unless I f-up) luck up a run. Where SB, while I tended to get at least .1 SB on every character, that guarantee of .1 L feels more satisfying.

    It's likely going to take me a million years to get the A/B's done so I may, at some point say f it and go back to SB grinding. But for now it's LB.
