Need help with skill leveling an AA.

Post by Xcalibre on Sun Feb 24, 2013 8:47 pm

OK I got a lotus spirit doll AA+. It has the skill of IPD (for those who do not know).

I have had a really HARD time leveling up this monster. At skill level 3 it ate 8 singles and 2 doubles straight without leveling up the skill. I finally threw a 4 stack at it and it leveled up.

Well that worked until now. At level 10, it has eaten 3 stacks straight without skilling up. I am at a lost. I have not had this level of issues with any of my other monsters. Do I need to throw stacks of 5 at it now or am I missing something. Any advice or fellow horros stories would be greatly appreciated!

Sometimes, ateam tweaks skill saccing on events. When you have at least thrown 3 singles to (4) and failed, it is time to stop and do it another day.

We know how much we would like to max as fast as we can a mob's skill but sometimes we need to be patient and wait for the right time to skill sac.

For singles, I stop usually at 3 or 4 failed singles, but for a stack, I stop at 2 failed stacks specially if its a downer or health. >.<

From what you describe, it sounds a determining factor in the success of a skill up may be the # of attempts you have made to skill up a monster. I may not have phrase that very well, but I think my point comes across. I have never heard of that theory.

What do you think?

Not sure what to tell you besides it's just the odds.

I lvled my Wingarm from 1 to 20 with 1 failure (from 8 to 9)

On the other hand

I am leveling up an beelzabub as a joke and have had 6 straight failures going from 15 to 16.

Yes, sort of.

Coz I'd rather save up my skill/stacks than sac them without gaining any level. Unless you have alot to spare.

Since the last change to skill stack success (where we have to use a (2) to get from 3 to 4) I've had to do the following:

1-3: Singles
3-4: (2)
4-5/6: (3)
5+ or 6+: (4)

If I get a fail at 19 I'll try a (5) but have only needed to do that once.

I've got a 2nd Demolition Dragon that I'm maxing and it just ate some stacks so it is sitting until after this event.

I'm back to using singles all the way to 4.

Lost way too many cards making pairs and then having the pair fail to level to 4.

For a while too I was trying (3) to get from 5 to 6, but after getting lucky the first couple of times, the RNG spanked me severely for my impudence.

IT is just so frustrating to spend time and energy making or buying stacks only to have them fail.

I've lost way to many skill (2) trying to skill from 3 to 4 so I use skill (3) instead. I know this will cost me a lot of monsters but I don't have as many failures as before.

I had a preemptive skill that was skill (3) level 3 and ate several skill (2) before I quit and used a skill (3). It was a level 7 before I gave up and used a (3).

So this is what I use now to try to level skill.

Skill 1-3: Singles
Skill 3-4: (3)
Skill 4+: (4)
