I'm hoping to generate some constructive conversation here.

***Who among you has fully built a triplet nat 5 summons? or a quadruplet? or a quintuplet? (Fully built meaning max 6* and fully skilled up all of them)

***Which nat 5 did you summon 3/4/5 of?

***How often and where do you find you use all 3/4/5 of them?

***Do you have a certain rationale that prompted you to fully build that third, fourth, or fifth dupe? And has it been fully realized?

I'm not asking about swapping monsters or converting elements, so there's no need to even go there.

So, where is this coming from...Last night I happen to clear TOAH with about an hour to spare and lo my legendary scroll grants me a third Laika. I don't even find a good use for my dupe Laika with all the other options in my collection, so where would I use a triplet?

I've already got several dupe nat 5s, which is a statistical conundrum in itself and most of the dupes do nothing but collect dust in storage because like most other monsters they generally fill niche roles to where you don't find that niche often enough to merit fully building the dupe or you have other options that work already built.

Wise-acres will be quick to shout you can use your dupes in Siege and in Labyrinth. Yes and no, and mostly no because many nat 5s fill unique roles like all other monsters and you won't often run into defenses that really merit you fully building the dupe or the triplet over some other monster that could adequately fill that role or fill a different role with a different comp.

At least with a nat 4 I know I'll summon one in the family with enough frequency that I could bank them and store for skill ups. Or if they fill a useful enough role I could build a dupe for Siege or Labyrinth. But there's not much point in building a triplet or a quadruplet or a quintuplet of even a nat 4. In part because there are so many other monsters you can build to create other ways around the problem, or one that seems like it would be a fun toy to play with.

I've seen some players boxes with quadruplets and quintuplets of a nat 5. It's somewhat boggling considering the odds to get a nat 5 anyway but that you would regularly summon a dupe, even over a long period of time. The statistical probability is incredibly low, let alone the statistical probability of summoning 3 of the same nat 5 when I have summoned 23 nat 5s. Or that more than half of my 23 nat 5 summons are dupes.

Currently, my feeling is the only thing these dupes good for is showing off as trophies and wasting space in inventory.

So, I'm looking to generate some conversation around how we

*actually*use our triplet/quadruplet/quintuplet nat 5 summons.
