As regards the fusion. Today I fused this:

36.7% instead ~40% and I got next results during 3+ hours:

great great
great great great great
great flawless great great
great great great great

I have neither the time nor the desire to repeat it 100 times to get the results, a little close to the expected.

Starting from my first post (Feb 19) and to present time I never got even four flawless items in the row. Maximum was three flawless items in the row. But I can flood you by samples of long rows of undesired results, the probability of which is very small.

I got 4 CF Epic Megalixirs about a week or 2 ago, 1 from each slot, all fused at once. The odds do skew the other way too.

I must repeat for CloudCade: this situation is not fun anymore.

It seems that a married couple of the top players in our city stops play due to a succession of failures (about 9-10 consecutive failures in fusion of mythic 47). Games shouldn't bring such disappointment.

For 15 hours I didn't got what I expected.
I Got 14 instead of ~21 flawless items:

The probability of such misfortune:

So 1-2 of 100 similar sessions may result in such misfortune. All other 98 sessions should be fine. 1-2 bad sessions in 2-3 months. Most of time should be fine. I don't see such trend. Instead, I'm observing much more of misfortune sessions.

1. Start the game in the morning.
2. Get 5 good items from 8 fusions.
3. Get 3 injuries lasting several hours after ten-minute hike.
4. Spoil your mood and exit the game.
5. Profit!

When fusing, I use a slightly different strategy.
2x good for greats
2x great for flawless
CF fusions for Epic
4F for Epic (when appropriate commons not available)
3E for Legendary
3L for Mythical

When I have similar level items, I'll mix different items but keeping to the above formulas for reduced fusing times.

While it might take longer to fuse 2x greats for a flawless item than doing good/great combinations, you are guaranteed a flawless with a 75% chance.
I did my own figures when I started and I was getting very few flawless on good/great fusions while averaging around 92% success rate using 2x great.

As for other chances, I did 4 fusions overnight where each contained 3x epic Evil Seals at 45% chance of success. Woke up the following morning and collected 4x Legendary Evil Seals. I was hoping for 2 and expecting to see only 1. Mythical fusions are worse as it takes a lot longer to gather enough legendaries for 4 fusions so you normally run the one fusion you have enough for with the inevitable failure...

While the chances of you getting the results you have are very low, it is not an impossibility, just unlikely. It's the same with winning the lottery or having an item actually break in a team with high levels of support - it WILL happen eventually if you participate for long enough...

As an example, I've posted my current fusion set below (running 4 identical).

I'll be doing the same with Legendary versions for Mythical gains...

The results to my fusions?

1x Legendary Balmung
1x Legendary Mystic Ring
2x Epic Midas' Gloves lost in the failed fusions.

Would I class this a win? Most definitely!!
