A surprisingly easy Lv10, mostly due to a favorable Ragnarok Dragon killer matchup. Laila was the most problematic floor and in retrospect I should’ve considered running Balboa just to make dealing with her easier.
This clear was rough. I haven’t really looked at what’s in future Lv10s, but I’m not looking forward to it. If there’s anything for me to take away from this, after much trial and error, I’m much more aware of the strengths (not many) and weaknesses (there’s a lot) of both Spicas as leads.
Now that Spica has skill boosts, I’m motivated to make videos for her again. Although they’re all pretty much the same: stall forever then burst.
Gainaut’s locked skyfall debuff is the biggest obstacle for low-damage teams like this by far since they can’t rely on flooding the board with offensive orbs to meet damage thresholds. It’s difficult even with killers and probably close to impossible without unless you’re a comboing wizard. Time extends are also key on 7×6 boards as they afford you so much more healing and damage through increased combo count. I can’t wait for the maniac time extend badge.
I would have preferred to use a water Spica leader pair, but, as mentioned earlier, the locked orbs put a huge damper on damage output so I needed to use her dark form for the higher multiplier. There’s no rhyme or reason to the subs, just reusing my MAthena team because they’re machines that do sufficient damage and I didn’t want to waste tans. I’d almost certainly use a different setup if tans weren’t an issue.
Not a smooth as last time, but, meh, whatever.
It feels like I cleared MAthena for my alt with the dacho carry team ages ago, but I didn’t have time to make an actual post at the time. Better late than never, I guess. I’ll probably never use this team again, but in case I do I wanted to record some notes about the run; if they help anyone trying to do the same then that’s just a bonus. Hopefully someone will eventually make a proper translation — assuming there already isn’t one — but I’ll do my best to go over the steps and cover any nuances.
“Challenge”. At least it’s some easy Pys.
Whew, 0-matching sure is hard work. Congrats to Chase Chat for dominating the top 10.
A video of the run is here. This strat will technically still be viable in upcoming ranking dungeons, but it won’t be optimal since none of them are eight floors or greater. The basic concept should still be good, though, preemptives willing.
