Awoken Pandora Arena 1 Clear

I was very fortunate and cleared it on my first try. Fortunate because I got one of the very easiest paths through the later floors (Sphinx, Venus, Mercury, Gran, Athena, LKali).

The team is still far inferior to Ra and Yomi Dragons, but Pandora still made the dungeon feel pretty damned easy. Damage and healing were never a problem, but I can see the lack of time extends being a major one. I got Minerva and it was pretty difficult to pass her five-combo shield as making an eight-orb match takes up a lot of time. I could see something like Stratios’s five-combo shield being quite difficult to get past; an eight-orb match with five additional combos sounds quite daunting. At least for shitters like me, uuevo Pandora is an ideal sub. I actually think Game8’s template party of Pandora / uuevo Pandora / DValk / Zuoh / Akechi / Pandora is pretty close to what I’d run normally as it has that sweet spot of RCV and time extends (probably swap out Akechi for Loki for Arena clears?).

By the way, I noticed after the fact that my Loki is not max skilled… I seem to recall making a similar mistake with Freyja.

  1. Wtf, 9 million per sub?! Pandora shits out enough damage to one shot machine hera! that’s insane setsu, kudos to you! Nice going. Now, about JP… What do they think of urd’s new ult and what do you think of it? Also, considering how pissed off the players were about skuld’s new ult, do you think they’ll buff her? If they do, what would be a reasonable leader skill? i was thinking some thing along the lines of ” Water cards ATK 3x if at full HP 2.5x if under 99%. ATK and RCV 1.5x for woods. 1.5 RCV if 4 heal orbs are matched”. Do you think that’s reasonable considering
    1) I’m a noob compared to you(About rank 233)
    2) I don’t play JP so I don’t know the meta
    3) I may be biased.

    Thanks in advance and once again, nice clear of Ultimate Arena!

    • I don’t really keep up with what JP thinks unless there’s a huge shitstorm like with Sakuya. I think it’s safe to say they aren’t pleased with anything, much like NA. I don’t think Skuld will get a buff; not everything can be great. If they did buff her, I’d give a buff to all the Norns to give them 4x ATK at full HP. Skuld doesn’t need more RCV; that’s the least of her worries.

    • No, I think something that does 1.5x like Lilith or Vritra should work too, but the big advantage Loki has is the buff being over two turns. This lets you conserve actives on the previous floor so you can more consistently burst on the Kalis.

    • No, I don’t think it’s the best one. Despite Pandora essentially requiring devils, the sub pool is pretty flexible so you just need to find what works for you. Although with that many heartmakers I’d probably try to fit a heartbreaker in there.

  2. What do you think is a better sub for Awoken Panda? The new uuevo or the awoken version? I have two of them, so I was wondering if it’s worth it to keep one uevo’d.

    • They’re pretty much the same thing. I’d assume more people will play Lucifer since the sub pool is larger, but if you have the subs for both I truly think it comes down to preference, be it aesthetics, playstyle or otherwise. However, if you have the teams for both, you may as well make both teams since there’s so much crossover.

  3. Oddly enough, this post has taught me one thing
    Two turn 2x damage enhancers are very underestimated within the game. Or not?

    • The only two-turn damage enhancers that are any good are the Awoken Norse and I don’t think they’re underestimated at all. They’re critical subs for a plethora of teams. The uevo Norse are 1.5x over three turns, are also quite good despite their limited awakenings and will be more competitive once they get their awakening buffs.

  4. On the team you mentioned (Panda/UUVO Panda/Claire/Zuoh/Loki) you expect to spike through DKali using Zuoh-Pandora? -> Loki. Aren’t you out the orb enhance damage which should be about 2x before awakenings? will that make much of a difference?

    • Damage calculators exist for a reason.

      You’ll still do around 30m with the proposed team which is well above the 21m needed for DKali. The orb enhance is more like 1.5x than 2x.
