Clear Steps

Consider this a preview of DR, and missions using only NPC units!

Heads up everyone, MICA has continued the recent trend of simply adding the farming routes to the maps after the first clear. While this is very nice for players, it is not as nice for guide makers, because the new routes will add additional AP to the maps. If you are clearing these maps for the first time you may have less AP than the images in this guide. This is fine, follow the guide and you should see no issues.

Move your Echelon to the right, then up right one node each. 


Continue moving to the right one more node.

Move your Echelon up one node, and then to the left one nodes. End your turn.

Farming Guide

The lower route has weaker enemies, so newer players will likely prefer it. Drop rates have not been tested at this time, and may be higher on the upper route.

If you do not have Lewis, she is absolutely worth farming to have at least one of her. Duping Lewis is likely overkill for all situations, however. 

Sporting strong tiles, including an Armor buff, and excellent base stats, Lewis can keep pace with other MGs on those grounds alone, but while also carrying this strong performance into the 2nd volley and beyond, thanks to her reload time reduction (this does proc at the stat of battle, reducing her first reload accordingly). Even better, as a farmable, Lewis can be obtained without the pain of MG crafting or the high opportunity cost of a True Core Mask. 

Thus, is is highly recommended to farm Lewis if you do not have her.
