Does anyone have a countdown timer this time?
Did you read the announcement at all? Sept 7th - it's still a week away and you want the countdown timer already?! Just relax, it should pop up sometime on Sat/Sun.
Training Dojo is the 'head-and-shoulders above the rest' top building to chase in the dailies... Free troops is almost always a major win (unless it's 'free' Light Melee which are beyond useless), but also being free daily pick-ups of the best Light Ranged option in the game?! YES!!
Honestly, while it's not the greatest feeding bonus in the world, the real hidden gem of the Red Panda Master will be to feed him once or twice as you play through the initial sequential quest line of events, as those +3VV's will absolutely make those quests far less of a complete clusterfeth!
...how many times for example, do you hit a horrific "scout province OR gain 15-20VV's" quest, yet the only craftable options are a bunch of 1-3VV garbage? Or how many times are you wasting a whole day scrapping together 15-20VV's, and then your final 1-2 you get nothing but recipes giving out 4-5+ VV's?!
Red Panda Master will nuke that stupidity, thank-god!
