Grotto Double Drop Campaign 1
Make sure not to miss this chance!
January 2, 2021 - February 8, 2021
During the event dates, all regular drops obtained from Grotto quests are doubled. This includes the essential drops of Mana, EXP Potions, as well as Rupies. Based on a few runs, Skip Ticket drops are not impacted. First-time rewards (i.e. the Free Jewels) do not count towards this bonus. If you're using or purchase the +3 Grotto Attempt Microtransaction, that essentially means you will get 10 EXP and 10 Mana quests worth of rewards per day of the event. Even without the +3 microtransaction, it's still a great time to get some extra Mana and EXP!
The Lv5 EXP Quest will now reward about 10 Mini, 24 Regular, and 16 Large EXP Potions. The Lv5 Mana Quest will now reward around 370,000 Mana.
Is this Worth the +3 Microtransaction?
In short, no, extra EXP Potions and Mana are not worth spending for. It currently costs 3.99 (rounding up to 4) USD for 7 days worth of the +3 Grotto attempt microtransaction. With an assumption a player is doing the Lv5 variant of both quests, they can expect to earn an additional 7,770,000 Mana (370,000 * 3 * 7) and 667,800 Character EXP (31,800 * 3 * 7) if they use all 7 days within the 2x event. While certainly a quick injection of progression materials, this isn't something players should feel obligated nor pressured to purchase.
