Justin’s planner[edit]

  • Justin’s event planner and how to use it.
    • Calculates the most optimal farming route. Helps you decide if adding more AP is worthwhile.
  • Use the Owned tab if you’re in the middle of an event:
    • Set your current event currency amounts here, and update the shop by removing purchases you have already made. The planner automatically adjusts to time remaining in the event.
    • Currently, the energy from the weekly quest/Arona login doesn't get reduced.
    • Up to one day's worth of natural regen (10/h) and cafe regen isn't included.

Maxing bonuses[edit]

Bonus guide
  • Zoomed in guide.
  • The game saves the highest bonus per token in a single run. It applies these bonuses to future runs, including sweeps.
  • You can do 3* objectives and challenges separately for any stage in the game.
  • Always do story stage 1 first; if there’s a welfare student, this is where you acquire them. Welfares give event bonuses.
Event bonus example
Runs Token A Token B Token C
1 90% 60% 0%
2 10% 20% 80%
3 50% 120% 70%
Token A Token B Token C
90% 120% 80%
  • If you’re strong enough, you can leave bonus students at level 1.
  • Bonus units can die, but their team cannot forfeit or be defeated.
  • If it’s too hard, swap out your lowest bonus unit for a real unit, and keep doing that until you can clear it.

Events worth refreshing[edit]

Hoarding AP[edit]

There’s 2 methods for hoarding AP; simple & complicated.

Simple hoard[edit]

Ez hoard
  1. Pick when you will play the new event.
  2. Collect your cafe AP 24 hours before that time. If you’re playing right after maintenance, add 3-4 hours in case it gets extended.
  3. Spend all your AP.
  4. Adjust your general pool so it will cap at the same time; it regens 10 AP an hour.
  5. Wait for the event. Adjust your general pool as needed to prevent capping.

For example:

  • Maintenance ends at 4AM on Tuesday.
  • You decide to play at 10AM the following morning.
  • Collect your cafe at 10AM on Monday. Spend all AP.
  • Adjust your general pool to cap at the same time (10 AP per hour).
  • Don’t collect any cafe AP, don’t spend any AP unless you will cap before the event.
  • Tuesday 10AM: You have a full cafe & pool for the event.

Complex hoard[edit]

Not recommended for lower level players; you lose AP regen (precious account exp), you likely have low bonuses and cannot farm higher stages with max bonuses.

  • Here’s an example of how to hoard AP. The dates in the first guide are incorrect, but you’ll do same steps on equivalent days. For example, you always start about 2 days before maintenance ends.
  • Set alarms to avoid wasting pyro and AP.

Other notes:

  • AP sent to your mail only lasts 24 hours. To be safe, you want to wait so it will last a few hours after maintenance is projected to end (the guides already account for this). Nexon will not refund lost AP.
To prevent losing hoarded AP, add extra hours to maintenance’s end time.
  • You cannot refresh via pyro if you don’t have the physical space. Each refresh gives 120 AP, you need that much space x number of pyro refreshes to do it.
  • When you have 999 AP, you cannot claim AP, PvP, raid or JFD (Joint Firing Drill) rewards. That’s why the guide says to fail one normal stage for -1 AP so you can.
