North America has finally received the +297 Zeus “Gift” Dungeon today and it presents a unique challenge for players to overcome. I am well aware that there are many different teams that can clear this, but I wish to showcase how I have successfully cleared with my Dark Metatron team along with my strategies and checklist of utility. Do note that this dungeon must be completed in solo mode.
I decided to go with my Dark Metatron team due to the colour advantage, ease in which to activate her multiplier, and ample Skill Boosts to allow for the much needed Skill Inheritance actives being ready in time. For reference, Dark Metatron forms a 2.25x HP / 36x ATK team when under 50% HP. I also used the +5% Attack Awoken Badge as it was the one that provided the most benefit. My subs were mostly chosen for their synergy with each other through Skill Inheritance as well as being my strongest options.
+297 Zeus is a reasonably tricky dungeon as it has numerous mechanics that can trip up the average team and careful planning is critical to avoid failure. Universally, every team requires:
- A board reshuffle to remove the 20 locked orbs spawned by Zeus. This can include the Pierdra Badtz-Maru (from my early days of pulling the Hello Kitty Collab), Mastering . or Keiji . If you fail to bring this, you are most likely going to fail unless you have a very large shield to withstand the attack.
- A really big shield can be used in lieu of a board reshuffle. This will give you time to remove the jammer orbs and re-optimize your set up. This is where complete immunity comes in handy such as Raphael or Thanatos comes in handy.
- Ability to hit 62 million damage. This may sound daunting, but it is vital to your success as you do not wish to play around with Zues once you reshuffle your board. Remember that dark teams deal double damage and anyone with God Killer will be very powerful. Remember, you can inherit over their active so you can still make use of those niche cards (Fenrir , Acubens , etc.). For mono colour teams, it is vital you bring a means to form a 2/3 primary colour board for optimal burst damage.
- A way to bypass the masks. You may choose to do this via large burst (have to overcome 8 million defense) or true damage/poison.
If you can address all these points, you should be able to succeed and you can be creative with your team compositions. You can do your own YouTube research via the link provided HERE.
The dungeon is relatively straightforward once you can overcome the hurdles mentioned above and I simply want to provide a bit more clarification on a floor-by-floor basis.
+297 Zeus “gift” dungeon provided a nice change of pace in terms of content difficulty. It can be a daunted encounter, but I am confident with my guide you will be better prepared to face him and enjoy another +297 reward. It was also fun giving him a good Spanking 😉
