Spring Festival of Swords Best Stages to Farm

Submit Feedback or Error


Performing in a Spring festival requires mastery in your steps, the dancing itself, and how efficiently you can wipe your dance partner out with bullets. Of course that last one is the main thing LostWord events care about. If you collect enough event points, the egg is meant to hatch apparently...or at least, it will net you a lot of good items for the future. This guide will help you reach that point!

Only Lunatic difficulty is considered here, as it is the difficultly that ensures the most amount of points as well as some Gold materials. One-wave stages are the main stages recommended here since they are the quickest and most efficient stages to repeatedly farm. The only exception to this would be the final event stage, which drops all gold materials and has an increased Story Card drop rate during the second half of the event, but won't be listed here due to being a three-wave. For more information on that stage, you can check the Event Tables below in the future.

Some additional notes for farming: The goal is to minimize the amount of Spirit Points you are spending to farm. This can range from using less Friends, using Friends with no Awakenings, etc. Less Spirit Points spent means more stage grinding and even more Spirit Point gain when collected from the Event! However, one exception to this is if you want to grind Friend EXP to power up a Friend, which you can do by having that Friend stay in the back while you can farm. That way, you can kill two birds with one stone!

Grab the Egg and Fly! (Solo)

Marisa Kirisame 126000 Fire, Earth, Star Moon, Water 5 2 None

Drops: Attack and Defense Books, Plum and Orchid Tiles, Heaven and Serpent Scrolls

Marisa's doing what she always does best and is trying to steal the egg! And...everyone seems to be rather nonchalant about this? Well, it doesn't matter as long as we can consistently farm her for points! Unfortunately, since this is a later event with a Solo-enemy one-wave, Marisa's HP is rather high. Perhaps take advantage of some offensive buffs while going for her weaknesses of Fire, Earth, and Star to reliably put this egg thief down.

Pre-Festival Sword Dancing! (All)

Merlin Prismriver 41000 Sun, Water, Metal Fire, Wood 5 2 None
Lunasa Prismriver 44000 Moon, Wood, Earth Sun, Metal 5 2 None

The Prismriver Ensemble has arrived to help with the sword festival! For their services, they get to be farmed in this All-enemy one-wave stage. A rather good one as well, both having the chance for Phoenix Scrolls as well as every enemy having less HP due to there being three enemies at once. Each sister covers their weaknesses quite decently, although their lower HP means most nukers can just destroy them in one turn. 

Oath of the Cherry Garden! (All)

Enemy HP Weak To Resists Barriers Spell Gauge Skills
Rabbit Soldier (None) 41000 None None 4 N/A None
Reisen 95000 Fire, Water, Star Wood, Earth 5 2 None
Rabbit Solider (Moon) 34000 Wood, Earth, Star Sun 4 N/A None

Drops: Defense and Support Books, Plum and Bamboo Tiles, Cloud and Tiger Scrolls

A bunny invasion, Reisen brings along a group of her elite moon rabbit soliders to search for a rabbit's most important pride: eggs. Unfortuantely for her, she forgot to recruit the right troops, as both she and the Moon Soldier share a weakness to Star (with the No-element Soldier having no weaknesses or resistances). Still, be wary of Reisen's much larger HP pool compared to that of the previous All-target one-wave, but this is still a rather decent, later stage for farming.

Strange Automatic Machine? (Solo)

Watatsuki no Toyohime 168000 Sun, Moon, Wood Fire, Water 5 2 None

Drops: Attack and Defense Books, Orchid and Chrysanthemum Tiles, Heaven and Phoenix Scrolls

It seems like Toyohime had some good peaches before arriving to Gensokyo, because her HP pool this time around is massive, just like any other Solo-target one-wave. At the very least, the inclusion of zero tricky skills on her end means that all you have to do is take advantage of her weaknesses if you want to take her down. Nothing much else to note here, but this farm is definitely possible with the right elemental attackers.

Now, do you think I could get as much HP as Toyohime if I try her egg dishes...?
