What is going on with Skill leveling up?

Post by celarsen on Thu Apr 11, 2013 5:22 pm

Increasing skill levels has become very difficult in the last couple of weeks. I have had an enormous failure rate. I am using stacks but even leveling up a skill 1 is failing like crazy. DED seems to be the worst for me right now. Any Ideas?

Well this is not new.

I gave up on trying to figure this out, and come up with my own rules

- use single 1 to 4 -
- use stack for 5 to 16 (stuff like health, guild down only to 12)
- sos/+ for 17 to 20 (12 to 20 for health up, guild down)

For months now people have been claiming that they are seeing a lower success rate. From my personal experience, I don't buy it. It may seem to fluctuate, and the bad stretches are certainly more noticeable. But that's how RNG works.

It's cheaper to use singles to go from 4 to 5.

If you can't stand the failures, use a (3) instead of a (4) to go from (4) to (5).

Stacks(4) always seem to work for me, but the highest I've skilled is 11. Do they stop working after a certain point?

I've gotten a handful of monsters to skill 20 using (4) stacks.

hi, I been able to make a critical skill up to 20 using stacks, failed only two or three times. And I just skill leveled my mushi+ to (19), and it failed a few times, like around level 9 or 10. it can be very random sometimes.

Also I think success rate may be lower when there is half sacrifice campaign.

I think its best to use a stack of 2 or 3 for skill level 5-8, then rest use stsack 4, even sometimes skill leveling a level 1 skill like impulse down or something, sometimes it fails on me too. i know that frustration.

I wonder if it matters if u use a B or a B+ at certain times. I read about that somewhere one time but I can't say for sure.

I was trying to get my Pit's agi from 18 to 20 (had 2 stacks of (5)). Managed to get one, but the other failed. Didn't people used to say that (5) stacks guaranteed a skill level up, so maybe A-team has changed the success rates.

Have no data to back this up but feel that when there is an event that provides many chances at gaining skilled monsters, the failure rate seems to go up. I do seem to have more failures with Increase Attack/Defense/Agility than others. Never had a SOS -/+ fail. If you can afford it, that's the way to go. Prices have dropped on stackes over the last several weeks, but you're probably better off in the long run buying the Spirits if you can find a good deal.
