    Best off waiting until the Tuesday Vortex Gate quest for Idols, the drop rate is ridiculously low. I've always had a little more luck capturing them in St. Lamia when overkilling them with Brave Burst's. Might not be the case but works for me.

    Does 2nd map mean Morgan?
    Shouldn't it be SPIRITS there?

    You are guarenteed one Idol by clearing Level 3 Tuesday Dungeon, you also have a slight chance of capturing the others you encounter.

    I have yet to encounter a Idol in St. Lamia... I finished all the maps in St. Lamia and haven't see one Idol! SMH... >:/

    Tried twice the TUE Dungeon, 4 idols caught.
    Felt like the drop rate would be slightly higher in the Dungeon than that in common map mission.
    Meanwhile, overkill seems to add the drop rate, slightly as well.

    Maybe u should just focusing the idol first dont kill the other enemies or using ur AoE BB coz its gonna kill the other weaker enemies, and if that happen and u catch one of them, u will not be able capture the idol anymore in that fight.. limited only 1 capture/fight

    Its a hard choice when you cant overpower them.. Either go for the idol first to get the highest chance to acquire it or kill the other enemies first so you can survive longer.
    Problem with the former is that it usually takes 2-4 rounds to kill one idol for me, and during that time I get slaughtered by the other two plus the idol with their dual attacks/specials.
    Problem with the latter is I probably wont get the idol that way

    Yeah its true if the other enemies are overpowered u, especially if they are the counter element of ur heroes. But if u already max out ur char, for exp lvl 40 sometimes it gonna makes u last longer ( with item and appropriate spheres ). And also its really tough if the idol using its BB for example "dement" for dark idol and the other enemy soceress chick i forgot her name ( with floating card arround her) she's dark type and also have "dement" BB, so its gonna be a massacre if ur lvl is not max out

    since its Tuesday today, (where I live anyways) And I needed to evolve some units, It took me 20 tries to get 2 water nymphs for my knight Zephu, (now Dragoon Zephu,) while the other nymphs I got were sky high. For the Spirits and Idols, they were incredibly easy, Water sprit and water idol for knight Zephu, Thunder Spirt and Idol for Thunder Eze. ( Now Thunder King Eze). At the end, I got my team all maxed out 4-star!

    This is the best strategy! Tried all day on Tuesday to get a few more Fire Idols. Only managed to get three. :(

    THIS! Is the best strategy ever, I agree with Josh 100%! I do this is Metal Paradise, I focus the Rarer Ghosts and 80% of the time I capture em! I haven't tryed this technique with Idol Dungeon because Im scared the sub-minions are going to wipe my team out... >.>

    Nice! I also do this in Metal Parade Quest.
    But i got more strategy too, its not a fact, still an opinion. I morely got capture monster by not overkill them. Like capturing a Pokemon, we have to weakaning them first then use the weakest attack unit to attack it. In Metal Parade, i usually does this and usually got the first monster i attacked. It still opinion though..
