    Actually, the ratio of total luck you neede to grind for silvers, golds and rainbows is approximately 1:2:2, which means that if you have finished LBing silvers, you're 20% done and when you finish LBing golds, you're 60^% done.

    I was re-looking at this today after I posted and I would have to agree with you.

    Z - 14 owned and not LB'd
    SS - 18 owned and not LB'd
    S - 13 owned and not LB'd

    2 of the S's are ^ characters
    6 of the SS's are ^ characters

    So now that I think about this more I think I will be doing 4 Z's and throw in an SS or S as I see fit. Or maybe I get crazy and do 2 Z's 2 S's and an SS. I use Dracorin^ cause I find having him speeds up things noticeably.

    Either way, the real grind has only just begun.

    Thanks for your input!

    So, I have finally made it to the Golden Pact road. That is until MW decides to add another silver or recode of a silver. I'll cross that bridge when I get to it.

    I've been a heavy user of Dracorin^ in my LB teams. I know the math says that it's likely better to LB 6, but it just seemed way faster to LB 5 with the Drac^. I am going to try 6 characters to see how I like it. Yes, I understand math, but ultimately my perception is that Drac^ is faster.

    Right now in my team are Olber, Olber^, KokoZ, Palpa, and Invincible. Taking the place of Drac is going to be the shiny new Jag that I pulled. I had 15 energy and my kids have been dying to pull for the past month or so. (Okay It's been me, I admit it.) Jag got pulled. Zerro and Samatha also got pulled. Sadly I wish I could say they were new, but they were dupes. Wasted energy but, I don't mind much.

    I'll post the number of Golds and Rainbows I have left to LB. Something tells me I will unlikely be pulling for a long time yet.

    Okay, I lied. I had thought that Jag was useful for something other then Fire dps so I wanted him to get him done first. However, in speaking with the other forum members I realize that's not the case. So I am going to shelve him in favor of another Z.

    So current party Olber, Olber^, KokoZ, Palpa, Invincible and Mr. King 54B2. Once KokoZ gets done I am going to put either Hakann or Nakupi^ in. Likely Hakann.

    Here is what I have in the way of Golds/Rainbows.
    Z - 14
    SS - 19 with 6 being the 100 L recodes
    S - 12 with 3 being the 100 L recodes

    My plan will be to keep a majority Rainbows in the party but keep a slot or two for SS or S. We'll see how that goes.

    Also I am not liking not having Drac^ in the team, but I will keep with it for the time being.

    Keep it up! The rainbow road is pretty nice. As long as MW doesn't drop new silvers in the pact, you're somewhat "guaranteed" to pull those shiny new rainbows because of the sometimes rate up for them ie. I pulled all the new moon and sun cept for Ashe then pulled Gal the moment she was added to the pact.

    It's been over six months since my last update on this. It's slow and steady for me. I don't have the time I once did to just grind LB, but it's been slow and steady.

    Silvers are done, even dropping back to Silver road for about a month to save me time with Daiana. Daiana^ was only at 5 luck, figured it was worth it from a time stand point. However, this prevented me from pulling in a few events so I rethought my dropping to silver for recodeable characters.

    With that said, here is my progress:

    Silver - Done
    Golds - Missing 4 from the pool. but only have 15 completed.
    Rainbow - Missing, I think, 16. But have all but 1 at 100L, so that's cool.

    I decided to focus on rainbows to increase my chances at Feno et al. Which I am pleased to say I pulled.

    So I've been splitting time and efforts with Sun King and LBing, but mostly Sun King.

    My kingdom for a damn hiso god, though. Would make my runs a lot more smooth.

    I'll try to remember to update this more often, but likely will forget at some point.

    So it took me 13 successful runs to get my royal ringstone. I estimated 60 or so s/l but in thinking that through, it had to be closer to a hundred s/l spread out. I had exactly one clean run without a s/l, run 8, but the others? Yeah, S/L a lot.

    I wasn't really able to LB much when I got it. Today was really the first day. I killed 25 L without even thinking about it. I LB sporadically during work spending a little more dedicated time during lunch if I feel like doing that. But, 25 L and I didn't even feel like it was that much.

    I don't know what my goal is going to be per day, might use 25 as my bench mark, but more likely 20 or so.
    Don't know why, but for some reason a large white space is being inserted. I've put it in spoiler tags to alleviate some of the insanity.

    I've still got a long ways to go to get to rainbow. Missing 4 golds is going to be rough, but we'll cross that bridge when we get there. Ellvern, Zeera, Yulia and Amina. We'll see where we are in a week.

    So it's been over 8 months since I updated this. Not that many are likely watching, but whatever.

    I hit rainbow road on the 23rd. While I wish I could say that I LB'd in the forest like a boss, but it was actually Lucia IV that got me through to Rainbow. While the luck per stamina totally sucked, it did allow me to do about 3-4 runs a day and I didn't get bored with it. Could only run 4 through at a time with Bahl^ and Schweiz as the carries, but now that I've hit rainbow, the rainbows are carrying themselves for the most part. Low SB is definately causing issues, but not really caring if takes me an extra minute for a run.

    I really like the fact that I get 3 pulls a day + 1 free energy. The CoT pulls have been crap, but as soon as I get all the rainbows pulled I will save energy for CoT pulls.

    I do know at some point I need to drop to silver road because while I don't need them, I'm going to want to picking up Pahrl^ and Gigojago^. Not that I am going to use them, but it's a thing to do. But I think I'll wait for all rainbows owned. Which will be a loooooong time.

    For those keeping track at home here are the Z's I am missing.
    Andalucia (recoded her)
    Edg'low
    Feno (I bit the bullet and recoded her/pulled 11/4)
    Ginny (recoded her)
    Lacuma
    Lio (pulled 10/28)
    Marcus
    Mizell
    Mogha (pulled 10/24)
    Nazuna (pulled 10/25)
    Renova (pulled 11/3)
    Shay (pulled 10/26)


    Should have stocked up on heartwood materials.

    Don't know if I am going to update this thread again, but I might.

    good luck with the CoT, you should have pulled everything when the 2/10 event with Z up was a thing, now getting good stuff from there will be painful...

    can't remember, are you done with the Ultimate 5? Renova and Marcus are MVP, feed them with some of the candies you find in the Melting PoT stages (pick one with a boss for an extra chance for a random candy) and you'll have a couple of buffed mages for Apostolos (the lunar boss).

    Hah, I was just thinking of posting since I hit gold yesterday - congrats! You're way ahead of me, the lack of Z events makes this painful...

    I just started doing the same with Lucia IV, it's only _barely_ faster than the Forest (even ignoring stamina), but it's a lot less boring. I've been using Bahl^ + Amina^ + four, literally just started this week, so it's funny to see a similar strategy here.

    I would _really_ love to know if we're ever going to see any kind of rate-up event again, so I know what to do with all the energy and CTs sitting around. Among other things, it kills me having to LB Shay and Arionne out of the Z pool, knowing that I will never ever use them for anything but wanting to get them out of the way now that they're in there :p

    I beat them the first pass, haven't tried them through the second pass yet. Was waiting for some more Z's before looking at them, but will likely start info gathering for them in a few days. Pretty much the only content that I haven't beaten just yet.

    I got to gold through the forest, but really had a hard time getting myself motivated to do the golds for some reason. The free pulls helped a little, but by the time that rolled around I was down to like 8 golds left so it was just a matter for me to power through Lucia IV / do some random forest runs.
