UPDATED 2/9/15
Mesa 3 and 4 are now better rewards. Mesa 4 is the best for skill exp as well as other rewards. Ignore the rest of this thread


After sifting through the data collected on my other thread, I've come to the conclusion that M2 is the best Team Dungeon to farm.

UPDATED 11/11/14 with more accurate data
M2 average skill XP per win including merit: 2,262.5
Without merit: 1,602.5
M3 average skill XP per win including merit: 2,180.25
Without merit: 1,300.25
(Merit factored at the rate of 4.4 exp per merit based on shard pack iii)

If you consider M3 is generally more difficult due to stronger enemies and a tougher boss, plus the fact that M3's quest card is 99% useless (as well as trial entry card), it doesn't make sense to try M3 except for a fun challenge. M2 actually gives the dungeon entry card as the alternate reward which indirectly turns into 60 shards on average, or an additional 1.2k exp, and I didn't even factor this into the comparison - so that's just icing on the cake.

It is clear M2 is the far superior choice in regards to skill exp, ease of completion, and alternate rewards. M3 is simply not worth the hassle - especially if you can't 100% farm it. M4, on the other hand, offers HBM entry, legend hero cards (may not be of value to players farming M4), and quest refresh cards. These rewards are quite valuable assuming you get them frequently and can farm at a high rate. However, considering the HB rewards are dismal and you can only get the two (or three) coveted rewards from the purple chest, the rewards are not worth the effort yet again.

Side note:
Estimated average chance for chests in m2:
Green - 62.9%
Blue - 26%
Purple - 11.1%

Estimated chance for chests in m3:
Green - 53.5%
Blue - 28.5%
Purple - 17.8%

Within those chests I've also found about 50% chance for hero slot card/quest card etc from purple chest. This figure is purely based on observation. I haven't bothered finding the real rate.

In conclusion: Farm M2 for the best long-term results.

Don't all TDs offer Legendary Hero Cards?

Did you find from averaging results that the slimes gave more skill EXP on average than the shards from M3? That is the only factor that matters in my opinion.

I like M3 because sometimes I get SP3, which is better than any other reward. But if it turns out that M2 gives more EXP in the long run, my opinion could be swayed.

Yes slimes > shards exp wise.

About hero cards, I saw eva say all dungeons offer legend hero cards but I haven't seen anyone claim they received one from m2 or m3, although one claimed to get an elite hero card from m2, so I am currently under the impression eva was wrong.

However, even if m2 offers legend cards it doesn't change my opinion on anything.

EDIT: I believe legend hero cards are rewarded at a higher rate in higher mesa, so if a hero card is your main focus, you should farm a higher mesa.
