@asfghjklEU-what route do you use when finishing in 3.5 to 4 min. It takes me 5 but I do go for the 3 blue ogres which only add an extra 30sec.

I kill the 3 in front and the red. I move to the left alley and kill the blue, blue red and then b,b to the cross street. Kill b,b then gold. Run across to the opposite side to kill the 3 blue on the other side then finish off the 3blue 2 red and last the gold.

My route, which takes me ~5 minutes, is kill 3 blues, red, gold in front of me. Kill red in middle of town, head right, kill the 4 blues back there, then head to the far side of town for the two blues and the red. Double back to the Row houses, kill everything in there (3 blues, 1 red), then out the alley for the last two blues and the 2nd gold. Hang around to see if I get the two reds exit, and if not, swing my camera around and head toward the center of town, then to whichever of the other two exits I get.


A very (very) basic LBP level... by me. http://lbp.me/v/pj9eqq

@The_FPS

 

Sorry, I probably shouldn't tell it until the event ends. It's a strategy my friend uses and he's in the top 10 in JP. Top 10 scores in JP are in the 1.4 to 2.2 million range so that shows how crazy and competitive it's going on over there. Don't want to spoil his chances.

 

3 blue ogres isn't included by the way unless the exit goes that route.

My route is exactly as WaveLightning's. I've been using that path the whole time. For me, it's the most efficient way.

You can do runs about 30 seconds faster with the halberd. But not consistently. Halberd can't kill the red ogre as fast unless it does the dashing attack right off the bat.

 

Black Metal: ~4.5-5.0 minutes

Halberd: ~4.0-4.5 minutes

I like the Halberg.  I have that and the chest armor.  It takes only 2 hits for blue, 9 for red, and 12 (i think) to kill gold ogres.  The defense seems weaker than my fleeing samurai set, but that may be becuae I'm taking more risk to kill them faster.  BTW:  what's the 100,000 reward?

The 100,000 reward is a demon tea kettle that one would assume works in the Japanese Teahouse space. Worth the grind? Maybe...depends on how much of a Granzella completist you are, I suppose.

 

So the sense I'm getting is that the lance or the halberd can be good with the better Samurai armor. Has anyone tried them with the demon armor? I'd love the extra points per round, but I'm still really on the fence about grinding up to 100,000.

I need 3 more of the 9900 teapots and I have about 7000 ryo now for one of them. I'm getting close to 85,000 points so I want the teapot given i suspect I'll get the other two when they have another event or introduce a new mission and maybe some new rewards. 

 

The most frustrating thing for me at the moment is running a mission (and I'm not using a club so no bonus) and not have it save to my point total. I don't know what is up with that. 

 

I'm also collecting the dolls and Granzella has tweeted this morning that a fix is coming for those not unlocking. Hopefully they'll unlock without having to hit them again.

Those are from the shooting gallery and you can buy a bunch of them from the Old Lady. Currently the mini ones aren't unlocking.
