Which ones did you buy? My strongest one ise at level 17,the others at 14 and one at 9. I found training in zen gardens work well, there are enough monsters at higherlevels but much weaker. My team currently consist of a chocolate cow, a fuego, soldier mouse and a flyvern.
What I do find annoying though, is the verification with the gaia items. It's creative, but not always clear
I was learning knots and things like that. At the moment just helping out my granddad and some cleaning again. Bit if job search but that is still fruitless. How is lake kindred going? I would offer you some kins, but I think your levels are exceeding mine now.
