Last year I was one of the only holdouts that didn't spend a dang thing except for festival favor stuff. (Last year there was no exception for things that retired or cycled out and that was when a lot of people dropped out. haha. ) I can do it again. difficult mode for me.


I'll add my starting amount when we are closer to the end of the month.

I was gonna say I'd go for it but between needing battle stones to make training effective and the possibility of Ice getting some degree of MP+expansion discount in September I'd be shooting myself in the foot.

It's a good idea for people struggling to save up for something though :3
