I noted the splash screen that shows even 1-star Astromons can be ascended to 6-star astromons. Since 1-star Astromons are easier to farm, would it be better to farm twelve 1-star astromons, awaken and evolve to Evo.3, and then ascend to 6-star? Or is it better to farm (wish) for 5-star astromons to evolve and then ascend to 6-star? Regarding costs, it's cheaper to evolve a 1-star to evo.3 then ascend. Evolution costs 1-star evo.1 to evo.3 Cost to awaken = 10k*9 Cost to evolve = 30k*3 Total cost = 180k 3-star evo.1 to evo.3 Cost to awaken = 20k*9 Cost to evolve = 50k*3 Total cost = 330k 4-star evo.1 to evo.3 Cost to awaken = 30k *9 Cost to evolve = 70k*3 Total cost = 480k Ascension costs 1-star to 5-star = 10k + 30k + 100k + 300k = 440k 3-star to 5-star = 100k + 300k = 400k 4-star to 5-star = 300k Total costs 1-star to 5-star = 620k 3-star to 5-star = 730k 4-star to 5-star = 780k So, my question: Will the stats on a 5-star evo'ed and ascended to 6-star make up for the difference in cost, time spent farming, etc.? If not, why aren't we all just farming sparklers and squirruses?
