100% Grinding Success?!

I guess lots of people have been complaining about the more difficult grinding success rates lately (-1 and -2 during failed grinds appear much more frequently now), so I found it funny that SEGA just sent out this particular item after today’s update…

Grinding Success (100%)

Grinding Success (100%)

Grinding Success (100%)

Yes, it’s a 100% Grinding Success item! ゝ(^O^)丿

No more sweating and worrying when trying to get your next weapon from +9 to +10!

Unfortunately, we only get 1 of these (so far), and there’s no other way to get it at the moment.

Recommended Usage: When To Use Grinding Success (100%) Item?

Personally, I’d save it for a ☆11 weapon when grinding it from +9 > +10 (I don’t own a ☆11 weapon yet :-( but I’ve heard that grinding one is a nightmare).

Or, you could use it for one of your ☆10 weapons that refuses to go from +9 > +10 no matter how many times you try.  However, I generally find that the Grinding Success Rate +10% (強化成功率+10%) item is more than enough for ☆10 weapons.

Where To Get It

As of the September 18, 2013 maintenance, SEGA management team has sent out the Grinding Success (100%) item out to all players.

Check the “Campaign Item Receipt” (キャンペーンアイテム受取) option at the Visiphone and it should be in there.
