Version 9.4.2 has been released and one of the wonderful additions was Descend Challenges/Quests. Completing these will allow you to access various rushes via multiplayer on a permanent basis. These can be cleared again for an additional stone along with having easy access to these lucrative dungeons. I decided to take my Sarasvati team for a spin in Special Descend Rush – Annihilation due to the easy access to delay cards, ability to override skyfalls, ability to avoid the final floor binds, and being able to deal spectacular damage with a single active.
Team I used
I did not use any inherits and latents are largely irrelevant for Sarasvati in this setting. Everyone is max skill and +297.
One nice benefit of using Sarasvati is the lower team cost on herself and the non-GFE subs as they are able to level up significantly faster which can greatly aid in the later floors, especially Linthia. I also forgot how to dual-colour combo solve for some strange reason.
In all honesty, that run could have been significantly smoother and I am confident I could min-max it better to reduce the level of risk as there are no surprises as each floor is a fixed spawn (unlike Arena).
Special Descend Rush – Annihilation is an exciting, albeit challenging dungeon to clear. It is not feasible to run on a regular basis as the drop rate is depressingly low; however, some people may wish to repeatedly play for the massive rank experience it rewards upon completion.
I dearly hope I can hold all of these drops with the 80 additional box space 😉

Er… Have to fast forward the first 10s or so because I thought it was a troll video at first…. That poison trick vs resolve is really neat. Imma have to remember that.
Yeah, poison or delay is an easy counter to Volsung and I am not surrpised JP created a team that could button through it XD
I am sure if I played that dungeon more as well as sarasvati I could smooth out my run
Lol for reals. Glad to see your fast recovery from your surgery. Im looking forward to your holloween analysis. Sigh… 500k for devil mei…. >.<
