About dungeon facts, the hell floor 20 boss continue to give 20 diamonds even on repeats. Its not much but still sth if you want to cleat boxes. So dont ignore it by grinding only 1-4 like most do for master

regarding to the dungeon box facts:
1-5 confirm
The next lines should be replaced by
Table calc included replenished energy by time and level ups and assumes Box 1+2 are played in Master, 3+4 in Hell
--------------Diamonds--------Playtime---------ME Potions
Box1+2--------5000----------12-14 hours----------41-------
Box3-----------5000----------8-10 hours-----------29-------
Box4-----------8000----------13-15 hours----------66-------
In total-------18000---------33-39 hours---------136-------

Hey Jr,
You asked in chat earlier which floor bosses have mj's but my browser kept logging me off (no idea why) and I couldn't reply.

They drop mj's on the even floors, 2, 4, 6 etc.

Great work on the newsletter btw. I'll start to keep my eye on my allies for the tiers' ep too. Try to fill in those holes in the future

PS. Just thought of some additions that could be helpful:
-add the leader board teir required to get the full set of a certain card, so it'd be t1500 for Masdana since we get 2 of her from ep rewards
-maybe use tinyurl to shorten any links cause they not clickable
-something I've been meaning to find out is how many of the floor bosses are in boxes. I know you can summon them there, so if you were trying to clear boxes but not rank you wouldn't need to cap 4 bosses to get an s4. But I've no idea if they are always in the box. you can also save resources that way. Anyone with info on this?

I think you can get all dungeon bosses from the box, but it seems to be completely random how many you get. You'll get tons of the Novice dungeon boss, that's for sure. And I've gotten a few of the others, but even after clearing 4 boxes I didn't even get a full set of them. I remember I only had a full set of Configurator Supremes at the end of The Art of Rebirth event because I had captured three of them on Hell lvl20 with FS, otherwise my set would've been incomplete, but I did get a full set of the Expert dungeon boss (and I know it's not because I had capped any), so there doesn't seem to be any guarantees.
Sorry, new edit with a little more info. Just so you see how random it can be, I also cleared four boxes in Shattered Kingdoms and, checking my collection, I see I only got Black Tortoise (Expert boss from that event) up to S2, so again I didn't get a complete set of that one.

Bosses are in but completely random. I seem to get the master boss almost everytime but almost never the expert. So makes me think maybe each gem has more possibilities to each boss.
Emeralds-novice
Rubies-expert
Diamonds-master
But it can be just random and nothing more.

but it shouldn't matter how you summon them Cris. if it's in the box and you empty it, you'll get it. Last dungeon I almost cleared 3 boxes and got a full set of the master boss. 1 from box 1, 1 from box 2, and 3 from box 3 or something along those lines, but I didn't get the expert boss which I thought was really odd.

Is this something we should try to record: the chances of getting a boss from the boxes?

But they are not guaranteed. when i clear 3 for new flesh i got 0 from box 1, 2 from box 2, 1 from box 3. the bosses are in the random pull and like everyone summons different cards from that pool and is not guaranteed any the same way you are not guaranteed the boss. I said about the gems cuz personally i get very few rubs during the dungeons (the ones you get for climbing master-hell) so if the rubies have bigger probabilities of summoning the expert boss it would make sense. i don't think i've ever completed the expert boss set from the box, but i've done both novice and master

My apologies for the tiny writing, it is getting tough to include all the info onto 2 pages. Please checkout the full PDF on the Fansite, which is much easier to zoom and adjust for those of us with "old" eyes

Updated. New to this newsletter - ranking values will now reflect only dungeon scores for dungeon newsletters and only raid scores for raid newsletters. This should help people plan better if they hope to rank. Cheers!
