Just converted Sonia. (1st try.)

Lv41 Sonia, used 1ssL and 660ssS, had message "extremely high."
Reducing ssS to 659 changed the message to "good feeling".

Good luck to everyone still recruiting! I have 2 of the 4★ dragonspawn to go!

Level 34 Sonia, 8 SSL,500 SSS.

According to the formula sheet, a 91.29% chance of success.



Failed. Bankrupt.
I am not amused. Pretty much wasted the past two weeks of grinding with nothing to show but a monster Sonia.

It's slightly more comforting knowing that I'm not the only one the game's trolling. I should have seen this coming from a mile away; bad luck is something that tends to hover over me like clouds do over Jim Carrey in the Truman show.

Well...back to selling 1*s with me! Here's to hoping a bit more success in the next recruitment. Assuming I have another 100+ hours to burn on the side.

I tried two jumbo stone attempts (albeit, not as big as yours - mine were like 60% odds) on Laura and failed twice. The next day I came back spamming low odds attempts, ended up converting her at level 40 on 50 SSS.

If you want my advice, don't give up. You still have over 30 hours until the event ends. Level her up as much as you can before the event ends and try buying stones and doing a few lowball tries. It worked for me it might work for you.

If you ultimately can't succeed the levels you get her will help on defense until you get another shot next event - at which time those levels will only make things easier for you.

Hope that helps...

Don't give up! I've also heard of people getting Sonia at 1sss attempts, so if you have plenty of Luna to burn, that's worth a shot too. He got her around the 50th mark, which isn't bad at all.

Check your trade too~

That's bad odds, but I failed 3x at highest possible success rate (which, even if that's 80%, has a 0.20 * 0.20 * 0.20 chance of happening -- or a .8%. Yeah).

Yeah, I definitely agree. It all comes down to how you want to optimize your resources and make that judgment call.

Well, I've said to my friends to play this game because the community is really nice especially, and after such kind, informative words, the show is not over! The blood has been shed, it'time to stand up and go for it again! In just under two days...you'll either be hearing a very happy Kero, or a very distraught Kero, but either way, I'll have done all I can!

I've converted my Sonia with 4 SSL and 600 SSS! cheers

My friend however failed with 7 SSL and 500 SSS, so we quickly helped him and he manages to convert by overkilling with 2 SSL and 650 SSS!

PostSubject: Best level to get SSS   Wed Oct 10, 2012 10:25 pm

What do you think the best level in training to get SoulStone(s) is?
For me, right now i'm doing training level 10-4 as not only could I get soulstones, but I can also get 2*s bears.

So what do you think? Which level gives the highest output of SSS?

I have an ally who converted Sonia with 20sss...it's kind of insane lol.

my current tally is 8 SSL, 296 SSS and level 36 Sonia. Formula says I got a 68.992% chance and Mina says she has a good feeling about it. Still thinking if I should go for it or push up to 80%

I was also very hesitant to pull the trigger, probably going through the same thought process as you are right now. My rationale for just going for it and rolling the dice was that I knew I was not going to hit 100% odds before the event ended. I wanted to make sure that if I failed tonight I would be able to take a potshot or two with stones collected tomorrow.

I had similar odds to what you have now (slightly better). Let us know what you decide to do and how it goes - and good luck. It is really such a relief if/when you succeed converting her and you can just relax tomorrow.

I farmed 6-3 for the most part. You get a decent amount of stones, chance for a 2*, and a decent good amount of Luna. Spend the Luna you get on stones to build up even faster.

Worry about bears and enhancing after you have your unit converted - there is no time limit on that.

Yeah you got a point King-Shawe. Nothing is guaranteed and even if I fail I still have a fairly strong monster unit until the next conversion event. I pushed it up to 70% with a few extra SSS and enhancements so I'm going to go for it now.

Level 40 Sonia
8SSL, 308 SSS
Formula says 71.173% chance
Mina says she has a good feeling

Result....failed Sad

bah. well I guess I'll potshot it until the end. this time around is waaay too harsh. last recruitment event was a lot more forgiving.

Tough break to you guys that failed with high % odds tonight. Keep trying though - you still have over 24 hours! I converted a level 40 Laura with 50 SSS after several large try failures. It can be done!

Does it hurt if I said I got my Laura Unit on my first try with 15SSL and 120SSS on Lv41 Laura M?

Laura sounds tough. The only other unit I converted was Bene on the first day and she was just somewhere between 80 to 100sss if I'm recalling correctly.

round( ( 4 * SSL + 0.1 * SSS ) * ( 1 + LVL / 300 ) )
first set gives us 79,56 ~ 80%
second set gives us 79,453 ~ 79%
Which is a calculated message change point, which is a strong proof of formula being 99% correct Razz

Aaaand that's why I'd recommend only doing 100% if you don't want to be 'not amused' Smile
