Farming Strategy Discussion

14 posts in this topic

Farming in Duel Links involves achieving high point scores (up to 8000) against legendary or standard duelists to get the maximum amount of prizes, which is necessary to have access to competitive cards and currency for the Card Trader. Some strategies will need to be supplemented by Shiny or Prismatic cards, which always offer extra points, even if those cards do not further the strategy.

 

Rex Raptor's ability "Titan Showdown" (double battle damage taken if a player's lifepoints is double the other's) is especially useful in streamlining any farming strategy, as it makes the 9999 damage achievement trivial.

 

To-do: more explanations, score outline, list origins of cards, in-depth analysis of each legendary duelist, auto-duel.

Decks to farm lv40/50 Bakura 7000-8000 points

 

lv40

Yami Yugi - Destiny Draw

1 Red-Eyes B. Dragon              OR  1 Cu-Chulainn the Awakened

1 Meteor Dragon                            1 Ritual of the Awakening

1 Fusion Gate/Polymerization         1 Blue-Eyes White Dragon

 

3 Union Attack OR 2 union + 1 spell reclamation OR 1 Union + 1 ritual Weapon + 1 spell reclamation

 

1 Warrior Dai Grepher

1 Gravekeeper's Vassal

1 Secret Pass to the Treasures

1 Shard of Greed

1 Gravedigger Ghoul

1 Des Counterblow

 

8 heal cards:

1-3 Supremacy Berry

0-2 The Golden Apples

1-2 Nutrient Z

1-3 Enchanted Javelin

 

Notes on lv40: Sometimes Bakura will stop attacking, usually when he has Man-Eater Bug set. Summon Warrior Dai Grepher and attack it. Even if Bakura activates Enemy Controller/Sphere Kuriboh, he will resume attacking the following turn. When you have used Secret Pass to the Treasures and Union Attack on Gravekeeper's Vassal, Bakura will not use Enemy Controller or Sphere Kuriboh when you attack him directly.

 

New note: There are variations in Bakura's AI, making him attack even less than before, so healing cards may need to be used more aggressively.

 

lv50

Bandit Keith - Switcheroo

1 Red-Eyes B. Dragon              OR  1 Cu-Chulainn the Awakened

1 Meteor Dragon                            1 Ritual of the Awakening

1 Fusion Gate/Polymerization         1 Blue-Eyes White Dragon

                                                    -1 Union Attack/Ritual Weapon

 

1 Gravekeeper's Vassal

3 Sealmaster Meisei

3 Union Attack

1 Pot of Benevolence

1 Secret Pass to the Treasures

3 Gravedigger Ghoul               

3 Talisman of Spell Sealing

2 Altar for Tribute

 

Note, Magic Jammer directly counters Contract, so if you have multiple of those, you can build the deck very differently.

 

Notes on lv50: Only use Thunder Dragon's effect the first time, you will need to tribute summon two about 50% of the time, since Bakura will wait to use the 2nd Contract. This prevents him destroying one of the fusion materials/otk'ing you.. After negating Contract with the Dark Master with Talisman of Spell Sealing, tribute summon Thunder Dragon to unlock your spell cards. Tribute summon Meteor dragon/Blue-eyes White Dragon to destroy the 2nd Talisman. If Contract with the Dark Master is Bakura's last card, use Pot of Benevolence to give him and yourself one more turn.

Tea LV40 tends to deck herself out extremely quickly, what are the best ways to combat this, aside from playing all copies of Shard of Greed you have (2 is not enough, she has Skelengel for d1 en 3x a drawspell for D2 which equals her drawing up to 9 cards in a duel I think. Before you have Grarl, she can still manually flip Skelengel, + you may have to 'Stop Defense' one at some point as well). Also fair to note; use stop defense when she has at least 1 card in deck so you don't accidentally deck her out by hitting a Skelengel.

Yeah for Tea I use Cerberus with 3x Shard of Greed, 2x Twister (to hit an early Solemn Wishes), and 1 Oath of the Ancients (to see which Set is Skelengel). If Cerberus' attack is high enough, she won't flip Skelengel, so I think overall that's the best strategy to use.

Yugi Moto event just started, need to be discussing Farming Strategies etc.
LV30: He has Gandora, Labyrinth of Nightmare and 3 Sphere Kuriboh so Cerebus is out of the question I think.
LV40: He plays Cerebus + ways to get counters on them. I think Cerebus may be viable here but you need some ways to out his copies of Cerebus though, but that could be easy: E-Con/Block Attack + attacking over it with another monster, for example.

Yeah level 40 you can just use Cerberus with Ready for Intercepting to block attacks/reset Spell Counters.

 

For level 30 you could probably use the Akz the Pumer deck, since you can play Abyssal Designators to hit Gandora/some numer of Sphere Kuriboh, and draw the other Spheres out with attacks from your lv4s.

 

Fusion Dinos also works to get 4000-6000 pts, or more if you have Rex's Titan Showdown Skill. You probably still want to run Abyssal Designator for Gandora though.

I posted that deck with Banner of Courage for farming Yugi while realizing that I crafted my Banners a while ago and there's no way to get more copies XD.

 

It has more utility in farming than I would've expected.

Some guidelines for farming Bakura LV40:


- Gravedigger Ghoul / Disappear to banish the Necroface (or if you have Izichu's drop skill No Mortal Can Resist, use that). Can use Destiny Draw skill to get it, or Switcheroo for consistency, standbye draw, or LP gain a, etc. depending on which character you want to use)
- If you use a lifegain strategy as 'stall' method, you don't have to deal with Soul Exchange / Ectoplasmer
- Probably best to summon the monster the turn you want to attack (such as Blue Eyes Ultimate Dragon, if you have that, but there are other options as well) so you won't have to deal with Soul Exchange and Ectoplasmer. You can use Des Counterblow combined with the life gain cards to deal with his monsters
- You still need to play around Sphere Kuribohs, which can be done by Exchange, Divine Wrath, Angel 07
- 1 Riryoku Field to deal with E-Con

I haven't found the right deck yet since I'm still testing things, and I don't have Ultimate Dragon or most of the cards required, but I'll let you guys know once I got something that 'works'.

LV50 seems easier as you don't have to deal with Ectoplasmer/Soul Exchange, so the early game is very soft, you only need to deal with his late game rituals and shit

 

I you want a quick 3k score deck you can just run a beatdown deck with a ritual or fusion engine and win before FINAL resolves quite consistently

Important update!

 

Posted complete decks to farm both lv40 and lv50 Bakura for 7k-8k points. I have tested both of these decks myself, although not thoroughly for the lv50 deck.

 

you may want the 3rd union attack/spell reclamation even with the fusion version for lv50 in case you have to summon Red-eyes B. dragon to destroy Talisman.

Slight update on the lv50 farming build. Don't always switcheroo a Thunder dragon back to use its effect a second time, both may be needed to tribute summon.

Still only have 1x Union Attack.  How should I approach Bakura Lv.50?

 

EDIT: Yikes, also completely lacking Sealmaster Meisei.  Have the seals, but not the master.  What are some alternative strategies?

I tried a version with just normals and Order to charge to kill Zorc. It worked for me, but seems very fragile, since he can summon dark necrofear then.
