    6% all stats. It's a gag on Log Riser, the level 999 sphere.

    Since Nico gave us 3 free gems I decided to do a single roll to see what I could get...ended up with a Rahgan dupe. 1000 points ahoy!

    I did finally get off my lazy ass and clear Tilith Ex though, so one piece of content down. Avant GGC is probably up next.

    Got on my old account back for the hell of it.
    10 summons :

    Rivera
    Rivera
    Rivera
    Piany
    Piany
    Quartz
    Isterio
    Some thunder dragon
    Some green dude
    Feeva

    Absolutely nothing even remotely useful since it's all dupe or useless stuff... for an account that hasn't loged on since 2015.
    Older accounts have it real hard, door is breaking every 2 summon on my newer acc. :V

    The 3-gem summon is a bait. There is no rate up. Even the new batch rate-up (12% for the new batch) ended few hours before the stream started. It is statistically better to summon during rate up even if it costs more gems.

    For sure. Last summer when there were 36 units in the pool - AND Griff batch had the new unit rate up if I remember correctly - it was a total steal; even during Isterio batch this Christmas it was pretty decent since they had a rate up going on.

    Now? No rate up so you're completely at the mercy of RNG. Resist temptation, save gems for Stein Tier Rate Up later this month! ;)

    (And after going down to 3 gems in June's Tier Rate Up, I'm now back to 40 mostly from all the freebies. Hooray!)

    2 more summons on the old account : nothing. 12 summons : jack squat
    on the my newer account : 5 summons Silas (new), azami (dupe) and Stein (new)

    Really ? I know I'm not the only one that has an older account that get screwed and a newer sub account that gets everything.

    Starting from scratch is tough though depending on the units you pull early on. So even with half energy and 2x XP, it can be tough to farm it efficiently.

    I think if you start now, you also do not get Feeda (free DE unit) from Nico stream. That said, 3 gem summons starts on July 11th so it's a good opportunity. However, getting started can be rather slow. On the bright side, since BF is entering DE era, getting them early helps a lot more because you do have more gem farms. So it would be a better investment than having all those gems in 7* in your old account.

    if you do start, maybe go with Magress starter. It is an odd choice, but he will give you a safe start due to his mitigation so you are not hard-pressed to summon one. With the 3-gem summons, feel free to do a bunch of account reset if you want to a few good starting summons.

    You can't choose Magress or Atro as your starter, however SHS is still going on so you may get lucky.

    With the daily gems and 10-day log in events going on, there's a ton of free gems to be had right now - I was at 3 after the last Tier rate up ended and I'm back up to 68 now, mostly from the freebies. (6 came from Zelnite and Avant GGCs but I think everything else was a giveaway.) There's still a day left to 1/2 energy and double EXP in karma dungeon so that could help to power level up to 100 to get the giant cost increase, and then as others have said 3 gem summons start on the 11th so that could be a good way to pick up some good units.

    If I was to start today, I'd probably grind up to 100 with the karma dungeon open, then blow through quests as fast as possible to get maybe 10-15 summons from the 3 gem gate, then work on raising those units and save up gems for the next Tier Rate up to potentially grab units to fill in holes you still have left.

    If you were going to restart, now would probably be the best time in the next six months or so to do so with all the stuff going on, and then you can use the probable lull after Anniversary is over to catch up on content.

    Yeah the starters pop up all the time in SHS, way more often than in Global. I've got all but Atro this time and multiples of a few of them.

    Hey @SimzCo welcome back! It's 3 gem summon happening just an hour ago until 17th so it may be a good time to start. Good luck! Hope you can get Krantz or Stein in the summon, they can go a long way I think. Let me know if you need a friend! :)

    Oh the new 3 gem summon seems not bad, I got Melord (A) and Stein (B) in 3 summons. Both new woohoo!

    @spie_dee Nice luck!

    3 gem summons are usually a trap but Melord is too tempting...

    ...6 pulls later I got a Breaker Stein (YES), but the rest was trash: Aaron (appropriate but wrong brother), Medina (haven't seen her in a while, she used to haunt me), Velnir and two Reviora back to back. Oh well, at least Melord is bound to be a popular friend for a while.

    That drama with Kalon revive though lols.. I thought giving Kalon revive at least UBB (like Juno) and angel idol ES for Melord would be more appropriate to the story (and when we fought them). But I suppose Alim thinks otherwise.

    Congrats on Stein, definitely a better pull than Melord and Kalon~ :)
