Jashin Farming Guide: Normal and EX routes

Intro

Welcome to GamePress' Farming Guide for Jashin Collab, where we will provide easy to find information on farm routes and compositions

While we tried to keep echelon recommendations as close as possible to a "one size fits all" recommendation to make farming all the Dolls in this event easy, enemy shenanigans and different compositions led us to offer slightly different compositions to make farming easier or less repair heavy. Below you'll find an overview of what route has each Doll for Normal and EX, as well as specifics for each Doll.

We divided this article per Doll, and in each Doll section, you'll find recommendations for both Normal and EX farm. If you have any suggestions, feel free to leave them in the comment section!

Happy farming! Both Normal and EX are generous in core drops, so don't shy away from farming them a lot.
Normal Farm Map

General tips for Jashin normal farming:

  • Almost all of these routes are fairly straight forwards. You will want to have 3 units in the backline, or enough upfront DPS to prevent the Tangans (little white running guys) from blitzing past your Dolls. 
  • AR+HG is recommended for all the routes except the one with Armored units.
  • As always, M4 Mod II shines, but you can make do with other ARs, on the understanding that you will be repairing more often. 
    • AN94 is used here, but you can easily stuff in AR-15 Mod, or other strong self buffing ARs and perform fine. 
  • HS2000 all but requires an RF to handle the Armored enemies. Even M4 Mod cannot deal enough Damage fast enough with middling Faries. 
  • All routes were tested using a 3* Anna Gream Fairy at level 60, which doesn't really have the best. A better Fairy will produce better results. Command, Artillery, and Rescue fairies all have better Auras than Anna at 3 star
EX Farm Map

In most sections of the EX map, the recommendation will be a Kordxodia or SF Echelon, so here's a small QA about it:

  • I don't have a 5 star Beach, can I use another fairy:
    • Except for Medusa run, Kordxodia can be used with a statstick. Note that, on M870, DEagle and HS2000 routes you'll want to add M500 Mod in the mix to keep Kord from getting damaged by the ghosts
  • I don't have M500 Mod, am I doomed?
    • Yes, now go Mod her. Jokes aside, M500 Mod is the obvious best choice since she gets a shield at 0 seconds, and greatly diminishes the damage taken by stray bullets on M870, DEagle and HS2000 routes. As for Medusa's, you can use SAT8 and armor stack, though if you're using her you'll have to field her on the frontmost row, which means enemies start shooting earlier. Armor fairy recommended to help Armor stacking, as beach won't be doing much.
  • I don't have P22!!
    • Go farm her in Isomer campaign. That said, we're using her for her tiles here, not her SKill, so Px4 is an adequate replacement. The important thing is to give Kord and Python Damage buffs, as Python helps a fair amount in some routes
  • I don't have sus (RPK), can I run another MG on Medusa?
    • The good thing about her in Medusa's run is that she has no real downtime, and if you're lucky she'll end up shooting the backline when she switches to AR mode, which means she can ease up the pressure on the frontline. Other MGs work. M1895 isn't of much help, as her Skill eats her Accuracy, and if she targets the backline she'll just keep missing her shots.
  • I don't have Nagant Mod, am I doomed?
    • Yesn't, now go mod her. Nagant Mod offers 0 ICD damage buff, which also makes Python reflect Damage buffs for Kord. You get two Damage buffs at the start of the battle, and that goes a long way in reducing your repair bill.
  • I don't have Neko23, can I use another HG?
    • Everyone gets a Neko23 from Career Rewards!! That said, if you can find another Doll with 36% FP tiles that cover the entire backrow (like VIking Mod) feel free to use her.
  • I don't have two Manticores, can I run SF echelon with just one?
    • Either you're incredibly unlucky or I have to ask what you have been doing since SF cap was released. Using just one is not really recommended, especially on Medusa's route, as only the second Manticore will be dealing Damage.

Minos Farm

Minos Normal Farm

This is your bread and butter farming team. Arrange your Dolls to get the most out your Tile buffs, depending on what HG you use. Make sure you have a Doll in each row, to prevent the enemies from running past. HG and AR choice is relatively flexible, I tested it with a Welrod and it worked out well enough.

For Minos Route, the final two nodes, which contain the club throwing enemies that can stun your Dolls are a bit of a concern. They can be mitigated by moving a Handgun into Positions 5 or 8, although they will need more repairs. 

HV ammo and VFL are 5 star, half levelled, but you can likely get by with weaker equipment while accepting a few extra repairs. Use a strong Statstick fairy, and profit. 

Minos EX Farm

Minos EX Farm, unlike Medusa's, is pretty straightforward. A Kordxodia with a 5 star Beach fairy will swiftly deal with them. 4 star Beach also works, and in this particular route Python isn't dealing much damage.

Python had a maxed Suppressor and HP Ammo, while Kord had a maxed VFL, AP ammo and Ammo box. The fairy is a 5 star Fervor beach

Medusa Farm

Medusa Normal Farm

This is your bread and butter farming team.

Arrange your Dolls to get the most out your Tile buffs, depending on what HG you use. Make sure you have a Doll in each row, to prevent the enemies from running past. HG and AR choice is relatively flexible, I tested it with a Welrod and it worked out well enough.

For the Medusa route, if you are using weaker ARs or Equips, you might have to repair some damage every few runs. Even without the Tangans can be heartache inducing but it shouldn't be an issue.

HV ammo and VFL are 5 star, half levelled, but you can likely get by with weaker equipment while accepting a few extra repairs. Use a strong Statstick fairy, and profit.

Medusa EX Farm

The bane of EX farming, Medusa is one big pain to farm due to stunning, high damage enemies and 300+ Armor enemies. Due to how painful it is farming these enemies, there are a couple of recommended farming comps:

  • Standard Kordxodia
  • MGSG team
  • SF team

Kordxodia can somewhat adequately farm this map. Python racks up enough damage to punch through the armor and can hit the enemy backline if RNG favours you. However, Mk23, or whichever HG is on Position 5 can eat up a fair amount of damage that, if you're unlucky with RNG, will lead to her going into Critical within one farm route. Use this comp at your own risk.

Since here Python's damage is not insignificant, she had a maxed Suppressor and HP Ammo, while Kord had a maxed VFL, AP ammo and Ammo box. The fairy is a 5 star Fervor beach

An MGSG team in "b" formation, this comp has Kord due to obvious Pierce, as well as RPK since her Armor tiles not only are strong but can also reach M500 Mod on Position 5. M500 Mod is here due to her shield generation synergy with Python, as that'll be her saving grace. Note that she will often be stunned so don't count on her Armor Skill activating often.<p>

Kord and RPK both have maxed VLF, AP Ammo, and Ammo box. Python has a maxed Suppressor and HP ammo.

If you're thinking of using MGSG team, might as well give a SF echelon team a go, as cost-wise they're pretty similar. Since SF echelons have fixed costs, we don't need to be picky with who we field. We're using Scarecrow as an example as she's a Ringleader everyone has access to, but AoE Ringleaders like Architect and Destroyer seem to perform better.

A couple of things to note:

  • This comp works without linked Manticores
  • If you have at least one linked Manticore, leave that one on Position 5. As linked Manticores have increases Armor stats, a linked Manticore helps significantly reducing the damage taken per farm run
  • A ranged unit increases the Echelon's effective range. It can either be a Jaeger or a Nemeum, with the latter being more preferable as it has AP
  • The Manticore in Position 5 will be stunned most of the time, so the other Manticore will be the one pushing the enemies back and dealing AoE damage

AUG Farm

AUG Normal Farm

Same as before. Arrange your Dolls to get the most out of your Tile buffs, depending on what HG you use. Make sure you have a Doll in each row, to prevent the enemies from running past. HG and AR choice is relatively flexible, I tested it with a Welrod and it worked out well enough.

For the AUG route, if you are using weaker ARs or Equips, you might have to repair some damage every few runs. Even without the Tangans can be heartache inducing but it shouldn't be an issue.

HV ammo and VFL are 5 star, half leveled, but you can likely get by with weaker equipment while accepting a few extra repairs. Use a strong Statstick fairy, and profit.

AUG EX Farm

AUG farm is fairly straightforward, your standard Kordxodia can easily eat through the enemies.

In here, Python had a maxed Suppressor and HP Ammo, while Kord had a maxed VFL, AP ammo, and Ammo box. The fairy is a 5 star Fervor beach

Desert Eagle Farm

Desert Eagle Normal Farm

Another easy farm route. Arrange your Dolls to get the most out your Tile buffs, depending on what HG you use. Make sure you have a Doll in each row, to prevent the enemies from running past. HG and AR choice is relatively flexible, I tested it with a Welrod and it worked out well enough. SAA from Career Reward works wonders.

For the Desert Eagle route, if you are using weaker ARs or Equips, you might have to repair some damage every few runs. Even without the Tangans can be heartache inducing but it shouldn't be an issue.

HV ammo and VFL are 5 star, half levelled, but you can likely get by with weaker equipment while accepting a few extra repairs. Use a strong Statstick fairy, and profit.

Desert Eagle EX Farm

DEagle farm has the Shaved Ice Sprite enemy (a.k.a floating ghosts) which, during our testing, seem to target the backline and target highest HP. This means that they'll target your DPS Dolls!

That said, it's not as severe in M870's and HS2000's route as the ghosts spawn further back, so if RNG favours you, it's quite possible to do the daily farm using a Kordxodia without having Kord lose a link. In any case, do watch out in case Kord loses a link. As this node has a low concentration of enemies, Kord losing a link doesn't endanger you from failing the farm, but it's best to repair her before she loses a link.

As usual, Python had a maxed Suppressor and HP Ammo, while Kord had a maxed VFL, AP ammo, and Ammo box. The fairy is a 5 star Fervor beach

PP-19 Farm

PP-19 Normal Farm

If you somehow don't have PP-19 from the load of events she's been farmable in the past year, you can get her now.

Arrange your Dolls to get the most out your Tile buffs, depending on what HG you use. Make sure you have a Doll in each row, to prevent the enemies from running past. HG and AR choice is relatively flexible, I tested it with a Welrod and it worked out well enough. SAA and Stechkin works even better, as they're buffer HGs

For PP-19 route, the final two nodes, which contain the club throwing enemies that can stun your Dolls are a bit of a concern. They can be mitigated by moving a Handgun into Positions 5 or 8, although they will need more repairs. 

HV ammo and VFL are 5 star, half levelled, but you can likely get by with weaker equipment while accepting a few extra repairs. Use a strong Statstick fairy, and profit.

PP-19 EX Farm

PP-19's farm is pretty similar to one of the farm routes we saw in the Halloween event, as it has the same armored enemies. A Kordxodia can adequately farm this map.

Here the equips on Python are important, as with enough FP buffs she manages to punch through Armor, helping eliminate the enemies while Kord is reloading. During our tests the hard-hitting enemies all seemed to miss Neko23, so dealing with damage taken won't be much of an issue. Due to Python's random targeting, it's also possible that she'll help clear up the backline, so the enemy backline is unlikely to fire out more than one volley.

As usual, Python had a maxed Suppressor and HP Ammo, while Kord had a maxed VFL, AP ammo and Ammo box. The fairy is a 5 star Fervor beach

M870 Farm

M870 Normal Farm

This farm is significantly easier than farming her in Continuum Turbulence, so if you wish to farm her, best to do here while there's the chance.

Arrange your Dolls to get the most out your Tile buffs, depending on what HG you use. Make sure you have a Doll in each row, to prevent the enemies from running past. HG and AR choice is relatively flexible, I tested it with a Welrod and it worked out well enough. As always, SAA is a better choice that everyone has, and Stechkin works wonders.

For the M870 route, if you are using weaker ARs or Equips, you might have to repair some damage every few runs. Even without the Tangans can be heartache inducing but it shouldn't be an issue.

HV ammo and VFL are 5 star, half levelled, but you can likely get by with weaker equipment while accepting a few extra repairs. Use a strong Statstick fairy, and profit.

M870 EX Farm

Another farming route we encounter the Shaved Ice Sprite enemies (a.k.a ghosts). In here they're paired with the Herald of Beans, the orange midgets capable of stunning your Doll.

As noted before, the ghosts targeted the highest HP in the backline, which means they'll often target your DPS units. During our tests, due to their forward spawning, they often managed to shoot Kord, which means that she'd rack up a fair amount of damage in a few runs. Because of this, we recommend a slight change to Kordxodia: changing Nagant Mod to M500 Mod. As we're using a 5 star Beach with Fervor, M500 would still manage to activate her shield, which is enough to keep her from eating one stray bullet.

If you don't happen to have a 5 star Beach, statstick fairies can work, but M500 Mod will be absolutely recommended as you'll be guaranteed to get hit by ghosts. Note that they have bypass armor, so M500 Mod will lose a link after a couple of runs.

As usual, Python had a maxed Suppressor and maxed HP ammo, while Kord had maxed VFL, AP ammo and Ammo box. Since ghosts bypass armor, M500 Mod doesn't need an Armor Plate.

As the team above is quite near the cost of an SF echelon, using one is also an adequate alternative. Unlike the team recommended in Medusa's farm route, here the Manticore cannot be in the backline, as it has a higher HP pool than Scarecrow, and so will get shot at. While it's high HP pool means it can eat up a fair amount of bullets before going into crit, and has an okay Evasion, leaving only Scarecrow, with her ~200 Evasion (at level 90) will keep repairs to a minimum in this route.

It's recommended to give Scarecrow the Lone Wolf chip, as a little extra Damage doesn't hurt. Manticores doesn't have to be max linked either. A ranged unit is also recommended to extend the echelon's effective range.

HS2000 Farm

HS2000 Normal Farm

This is the one outlier route here in Normal. These Armored enemies have over 200 Armor, and that demands that you respect it, by bringing a Rifle to punch through Armor. M4 continues to provide her standard duties blowing up the other enemies along the way. P22 is here for her tiles more than her Skill, and can be replaced with another high Damage Tile HG, such as MK23 or Viking Mod. 

Damage buffing RFs are largely interchangeable here, so don't worry about not having FN-49 mod. She can be replaced with M14 or Lee as you wish. 

You will want Gold AP Ammo on your Rifle, to minimize the Armor penalty as much as possible. Other than that, I used half leveled gold HV and VFLs. Weaker equips will lead to more repairs.

HS2000 EX Farm

Another farming route we encounter the Shaved Ice Sprite enemies (a.k.a ghosts). In here they're paired with the Herald of Beans, the orange midgets capable of stunning your Doll. This route is identical to M870's route, so the recommendations will be the same:

As noted before, the ghosts targeted the highest HP in the backline, which means they'll often target your DPS units. During our tests, due to their forward spawning, they often managed to shoot Kord, which means that she'd rack up a fair amount of damage in a few runs. Because of this, we recommend a slight change to Kordxodia: changing Nagant Mod to M500 Mod. As we're using a 5 star Beach with Fervor, M500 would still manage to activate her shield, which is enough to keep her from eating one stray bullet.

If you don't happen to have a 5 star Beach, statstick fairies can work, but M500 Mod will be absolutely recommended as you'll be guaranteed to get hit by ghosts. Note that they have bypass armor, so M500 Mod will lose a link after a couple of runs.

As usual, Python had a maxed Suppressor and maxed HP ammo, while Kord had maxed VFL, AP ammo and Ammo box. Since ghosts bypass armor, M500 Mod doesn't need an Armor Plate.

As the team above is quite near the cost of an SF echelon, using one is also an adequate alternative. Unlike the team recommended in Medusa's farm route, here the Manticore cannot be in the backline, as it has a higher HP pool than Scarecrow, and so will get shot at.
