The ninja with highest Speed attacks first – Scales with your Agi
Recently I talked about how “old” event ninja are most of the time not worth the gold/coupons and you should rather wait one or two months longer to pick up something current, today we extend this even further, so if you did not read check it out here: Why you should not buy old Event Ninja
Picking the latest event ninja every month goes heavy on your wallet, even with the amount gold growth funds we recently got, now the question is do you really have to catch them all? Or even 3 of 5? How can you optimize your usage for the ninja YOU pick, because even if you pick one every month or every second month, unless you spend tons of resources it’s quite hard to make them all equally strong. In PvP it usually comes down to the latest event ninja, as he has a bit more speed than the ninja before but enough to make a difference. In PvE the utility of other event ninja helps a lot without doubt.
Before I want to talk further, this tip is mostly for people who are R1-50~ or already reached R2 on their protagonist because the focus is on the second reincarnation for other ninja. You probably already reincarnated one of your ninja and stopped there, maybe because the ninja was not worthy or you were already saving potency for the next one.
If you decide to go the cost efficient way reincarnate the ninja you pick a second time. You will get slightly better growth rates and obviously more stats for each level acquired, this will allow him to compete with newer event ninja a bit longer, but also allow you to save gold perfect for lower VIP.
You will probably need an average of 4-5 months to obtain enough potency for both reincarnations, meanwhile that 4-5 months should allow you to build up enough gold for your next ninja. So if you start saving potency and gold now you should have enough by December for the latest ninja and will be able to reincarnate him twice “right away”. If you keep up the pace you can get your second ninja in May next year and rinse and repeat, while you might not have many event ninja you will have the “quality” and increase the duration you will use those. If you accumulated enough gold and see a “MUST HAVE” ninja you might also just consider to get him, but let him at R1 and pick up your farm for your next R2 ninja, in the end you should only loose around 30-40 days.
Let me know what you guys think, I’m not one to talk as I usually don’t listen on my own advice.
