Challenge Dungeons 29 is another opportunity for players to test their puzzling skills along with creativity to overcome a new set of obstacles for valuable rewards. For this Challenge 10, I decided to clear it solo to showcase how a glass-cannon leader with the proper planning and skyfall luck can succeed.
I do not have a fully skilled up Amon and was part of the reason I entered Coop as it would allow me to have sufficient skill boosts along with saving 50 stamina. If he had been skilled up, there would have been no need to enter via coop. If you disconnect from multiplayer, you do not receive the Quest Badge bonus (which is somewhat irrelevant as you would be choosing the +5% attack).
The reason I bring Amon is to utilize his counterattack mechanic to bypass Zeus/Hera’s resolve ability as they will strike you with a 90% health cut which is immediately counterattacked to kill them. This produces a safer run as you no longer have to worry about that floor.
Aside from the counterattack ability, my subs were mostly chosen for their orb changing capabilities to ensure I have enough Water-power (not firepower) to drown each floor. It is also beneficial to use a water team as the Blue Puppeteer will produce water orbs for free.
Finally, I used Andromeda to ensure my sub attributes do not heal the various encounters due to their colour absorptions.
This Challenge 10 is easily manageable with a non-light or dark glass cannon team as all the floors have high health values along with low mechanics.
What did you use to clear Challenge 10?

Used a Dual Sephiroth team (Seph, A.Yomi, Lu Bu, A.Ra, Z8, Seph). ZeusHera can stall for a while (if needed for Z8 to be ready for last level). Sephiroth has decent xRCV to stall through the 3 absorb turns of Rev.Gran and 5 absorbs of Puppeteer.
Oh nice! Glad to see less popular leaders are getting some love =D
Took me some tries but I did it with Sakuya. I brought astraoth to use. Anyone think Egypt God 2 Series will get awokens?
Egyptian 2 should get one soonish
And congrats on your clear =D
I did it with Myr! Probably not the best idea, but I did it on the first try! XD
BMyr is probably better though, I didn’t know there would be so many light absorbs…
Team: Myr, ADQXQ, Wukong, Saria, Venus(Wedding Akechi), Myr
Haha Myr is obviously strong, but you def made your life hard for yourself here =P
But I really like your team =D
BMyr for me, was pretty easy. I used my Special Descend clear setup so I had Neptune dragon who helped against the resolve. Was an easy match.
Well done! BMyr Def has some advantages over light due to avoiding all those wonderful light absorbs XD
One shotted 10 with XM (did 6-10 with her) and the only issue I had was trying to deal with the lack of time extensions since Myr has broken my ability to puzzle quickly
Haha well when I play Myr I think heart crosses whereas other leaders I don’t so its not as bad for me when I switch XD
Would like to see an article analyzing the available “heart cross” leaders (strengths, weaknesses, suggestions for subs, etc.). It’s a new play-style for me to adapt to. I have a Myr, but just evolved my A.Izanagi. Plus, I just rolled a Paimon.
I am planning on doing a combo guide for heart crosses (in the somewhat near future) and possibly a meta snap shot of them too =)
Used Awoken Liu Bei for challenge 8 and Awoken Lucifer for challenge 9.
Lost in challenge 10 using Awoken Liu Bei. I didn’t kill Gainaut in the first turn (I was saving Awoken Astaroth’s active), got a mortal poison orb skyfall then Charité killed me with the preemptive strike. In hindsight I should’ve used Astaroth against Gainut since the counter attack is for 4 turns.
Well hopefully with that knowledge in hand, you will be able to clear now!
Thanks for this! I realized that I had a near-duplicate of your team (no Blonia, but I did have a Gabriel for light/dark orb changes), so I tried it. First time beating Challenge 10, and my Sara isn’t even fully maxed out. 😀
Congrats! I am glad you were able to clear your first Challenge 10 =D
Super cool! I love when you find uses for “garbage” cards 😀 Very entertaining!
Glad you enjoyed it! Amon has given me nightmares as I have probably rolled over 5 of him since I started PAD ><
I attempted the dungeon with Myr and A.Panda teams several times and finally beat it with my A.Panda team: A. Panda, Zuoh, D/D Akechi,D/D Haku, A.Loki, A. Panda. Everyone maxed. Awoken badge RCV +25%.
The dark absorb actually was not a problem – I always need to stall for actives. For me, the row teams are really hard to maneuver on 7*6 board. I pretty much had to burn 1-2 actives to sweep a floor so stall for skills was a must. You just need to manage the heal orbs wisely.
The locked orbs could be good or bad but locked heart orbs are life savers.
Another key point is to have delay/poison/counter attack inherited to deal with Zera resolve, preferably delay because it would give you more room to stall before final floor.
I completely agree that row teams on 7×6 boards are problematic as you have to manipulate so much more but do not have additional time to compensate.
The RCV badge is incredible for RCV boosted teams like Pandora and allows you to stall where most teams could not.
I mostly used Amon as he has synergy with the orb hungry Sarasvati, but poisons/delays are certainly viable options once you wait out 2 turns of the status void
Congrats on your clear btw =)
Myr team didn’t work for me after several tries because there are not enough heal orbs to consistently activate even if you pop actives due to the locked orb mechanism and I am not great at manipulating orbs. A. Pandora is not the ideal team for this dungeon but it’s the best I’ve got and it worked better because the team could just tank the hits and recover.
You are certainly right on the RCV badge. Devils actually suffer from low RCV, I don’t think I would be able to beat the dungeon without the RCV badge.
The RCV (or any badge) would have been so much nicer if we had it a year ago before coop was released. Would have breathed life into so many new teams due to the ability to heal quickly.
At least with the 1-shot challenges we get to use them again XD
Nice job man,was fun to watch. 😀
I did with yy, mostly because sarasvati wasn’t max skilled or plused yet.
But the current descended challenge was full cleared with her team.
I’ll wait for the insect dragon dungeon to skill up her, since I have that arena karma… (I haven’t seen a blue spawn a long time).
Glad you enjoyed it and anything cleared with Sara should be doable with YY =)
