The goal of this page is to help you feed your monster more efficiently. Its ideas and conclusions may not be entirely correct and should be used for reference only.
This guide is targeted towards players who have reached at least Fire Forest Nerva, but can be used by newer players to learn the basics of feeding.
For information on skilling up your monsters, see Monster Skills.
Using Water as an example: You shouldn't feed 5 lv 3 to a lv 30 , because the gold costs will outweigh the XP gain. However, feeding to something from the "Fair" list (e.g. ), allowing it to reach at least level 12 and then feeding that to is okay until roughly level 35.
|Best||Unevolved Pengdras give 9000 xp to same color when maxed. It's best to evolve them first, however this can take up box space as it requires and .|
|Good||Can be fed as-is to your main monsters until they reach about level 35. At this point it becomes too expensive to continue to do so.|
|Fair||Should be leveled to roughly level 12-14 before being fed to your main monsters. At level 5-6, they can be fed to a to max it.|
|Poor||Poor. It is recommended to just sell these until you get past Tower of Giants. At that point they may be fed to tiers above to maximize use.|
Monster Leveling Resources
To level monsters, two things are required: XP and gold. XP comes in the form of other monsters (hereafter referred to as "fodder") you feed to the monsters you wish to level. Gold can be acquired by clearing dungeons and can be a real problem in the beginning. Below is a small list of the dungeons with the best stamina-to-Gold ratio for newer players.
Weekend Dungeon Int (1719/sta)
Castle of Satan King of Darkness (972/sta)
Castle of Satan Witches Ball (612/Sta)
Castle of Satan The King's Protectors (596/sta)
Tower of Giants Dragons of the Tower (601/sta)
Once you are up to the 3rd set of dungeons, gold drops are fairly similar across the board. Since this is the case, it's better to run whichever dungeon currently has a 1.5x drop rate active to maximize fodder and gold. Although Castle of Satan gives fairly good amounts of gold, it is not recommended for gathering fodder due to the multiple colors making it harder to get what you need.
After beating Castle of Satan, you gain access to the Technical Dungeons. The first levels of Fertile Land, Ice Maze, and Blazing Highway are arguably the best for dropping Pengdras (). Outside of certain special drops from limited-time dungeons, Pengdras are the best fodder monsters in the game. A max-level Pengdra provides 6000 EXP (9000 for same color). NOTE: This is only recommended if you have large amounts of both patience and box space.
(fed as-is to same color)
|Pengdra|| Fire Pengdra|
|1800 (lv 2)|
|Carbuncle|| Ruby Carbuncle|
|1969 (lv 5)|
|Chimera|| Flame Chimera|
|1200 (lv 2)|
|Divine Mask|| Divine Carmine Mask|
Divine Indigo Mask
Divine Jade Mask
|3000 (lv 1)|
A lv 2 Pengdra requires only 2545 EXP to reach max level, more than that will be a waste of gold/fodder. Below are various ways to feed a Pengdra to max (assuming same-color for all monsters):
|Fodder combo||Gold cost||Notes|
|Carbuncle + Chimera||400||Recommended|
|Chimera + Chimera||400||Recommended. Feed one Chimera to another Chimera, then feed the resulting lv 6 Chimera to the Pengdra.|
|Pengdra + Chimera||400||This method wastes the least EXP, but Pengdras are much more precious, so you probably shouldn't do it.|
|Pengdra + Pengdra||400||A waste of EXP and Pengdras; it's better to just buy more boxes or wait for fodder.|
|Pengdra + Carbuncle||400||If you have extra Carbuncles, it's far better to save them to use with Chimeras.|
|Carbuncle + Carbuncle||400|
|Divine Mask||200||If you already have enough masks for evolution, you can use leftover masks for fodder.|
Note: This table does not take into account the extra cost from +1 Monsters.
Due to the large difference in the amount of experience provided, you should evolve Pengdras before feeding them to other monsters. (They are at max level immediately after evolving, so there's no need to level them further.)
These are the materials needed for evolution:
|Fire Pengdra||Ruby Pengdra||Dragon Plant Ruby Dragon x2|
|Water Pengdra||Sapphire Pengdra||Dragon Plant Sapphire Dragon x2|
|Wood Pengdra||Emerald Pengdra||Dragon Plant Emerald Dragon x2|
|Shiny Pengdra||Topaz Pengdra||Dragon Plant Gold Dragon|
|Dark Pengdra||Amethyst Pengdra||Dragon Seed Metal Dragon x3|
However, your penguin farm faces two problems:
- Evo Materials: Large numbers of Dragon Seed and Dragon Plant are required, which are typically amassed once a week from Thursday Dungeon. Although the recently added Alert! Dragon Plant Infestation! gives you another way to farm those Evo Materials, it doesn't appear as often. The various Metal/Gold/Jewel Dragons can only be acquired from the Urgent Dungeons (Metals are every other day so they're easy to get; the three Jewels typically appear once every six days so they're still fairly easy; Golds rarely appear outside of events). However, you can also farm them from various low-level dungeons like Tower of Giants (which can also get you Dragon Plant).
- Storage space: Because Dragon Seeds and Dragon Plants can only be refilled every Thursday, you have to stock up on them all at once, putting pressure on storage space. You will need a lot of monster boxes to store Dragon Seeds, Dragon Plants, and Pengdras while you wait on Jewel Dragons.
Because their evo materials are tougher to get, it's okay to raise the more common Fire/Water/Wood Pengdras to max and feed them unevolved to your main monster, saving only a few Pengdras for evolution based on your available box space. However, Light/Dark Pengdras are rare and should always be evolved if possible.
One final note: since Jewel Dragons are consumed two at a time, if you have one left over, you can either save it for next time or use it as fodder. One Jewel Dragon gives 3000 EXP to the same color, which is enough to max a Pengdra of the same color. (This doesn't work with Metals and Golds.)
- King and High Jewel/Metal/Gold Dragons give large amounts of EXP, which come from daily special dungeons. Super King Dragons are worth even more experience but their dungeons are quite difficult without a team planned around beating them.
- There are some good fodder monsters in certain limited-time dungeons, such as Manekimewdra (20000), Moltdras (12000), and Porings from Poring Tower (10000).
SGD Cycle Method
Since the addition of Snow Globe Dragons (SGD) in the Present Egg Machine, the chance of getting a SGD is even greater than the Starter Dragons. And the SGD are extremely good for leveling up monsters.
Some math here: A SGD takes 265165 EXP to max level, which gives 1 million EXP. (1.5 million EXP to same element) And using a different colored SGD at level 14 (not 13 nor 15) can instantly max level a SGD at level 1.
That being said, if you have two different colored SGD, and one of them is one that you want to feed to a strong one, all you need is about 21570 EXP. (Before evolving takes 11570 EXP, and level 14 takes about 10000 EXP)
The only thing that might be hard is Dragon Fruit. You may wish to store many Dragon Fruits when Thursday comes, and try to gather other evo mats during the rest of the week.
So with this cycle, you can get a LOT of profit without much cost, how efficient!
