The Nyx Level Ranking Tournament not only has a pretty sweet name but is also positioned well as a 5% Crown event that also features Fixed Leaders.
Fixed Leaders are one of the more restrictive types of Tournaments due to the fact that it greatly hinders your sub options. Thankfully, this Ranking Dungeon has various metrics boosted so there are several ways to augment your score.
This article will explain my approach to this Ranking Tournament for obtaining a Crown.
In Ranking Dungeons, players are scored based on the following:
- Final Average Combo is worth 5,000 points
- Each second remaining is worth
- Hitting 40 Million damage is 10,000 points
- Each active used to kill a floor (no combo made) is -5,000 points
- TPA = 400 points
- L = 800 points
- Guard Break = 400 points
Due to the fact that the Nyx level tournament contains only 5 floor, combos are worth 1,000 points (minus animation time) but at the same time, each second is also worth 750 points.
This provides an interesting twist as you want to strike a balance between speed and combos. For myself, I decided to go for an inflated combo count strategy while also tapping into the boosted Style Points.
The dungeon itself is not terribly ridden with annoying mechanics and the first major hurdle players will encounter is the fixed leaders.

As a result, your multipliers can greatly vary from floor to floor as bicolours cancel out the Rainbow activation but fulfills the active skill clause. Either way, it is best to populate your team with Devil cards as much as possible and have all 5 colours represented (just need Fire and Water) along with Guard Break for free passive points.
Tape & Cloud Resist
Mass Attack Badge
You will need this as no other badge can provide this much value/consistency due to multiple enemies appearing on the first 4 floors.
Enhance Material Killer
The final floor of this dungeon has 300 million health and is only vulnerable to Enhance Material Killers . As such, it is best to load up on these for your primary damage dealer to ensure they can actually kill this floor.
Mythlits & TPA
Floors 1-4 all feature a single Mythlit who will preemptively change the board to all 5 colours + Hearts with 5 copies of each orb. This means you will only have a 6 combo board and is why TPA is pursued. This is because there is nothing better to do with the extra orbs and if you are able to cover all 5 colours, that is an extra 2,000 points plus the guaranteed Guard Break .
My team composition
Taking all of the above points into consideration, this is the team I have chosen to use:
Nyx Level Tournament – Mass Attack Badge
Horus is a natural shoe-in for Ranking Dungeons due to 3 Skill Boosts , two rarer colours, TPA , Guard Break , L , and 2 turn cooldown. Reincarnated Baal also has 3 Skill Boosts along with TPA for two different colours and an active that is just short enough to charge up by Floor 3. I threw on those Killers as I sometimes had issues killing Floor 2 and 4 without some Skyfalls and this just lowers the number needed to kill.
Diaochan is another low cooldown, high Skill Boost card who can carry longer inherits with ease. Finally, Sonia is both a damage solution who brings Cloud Resist and a bicolour board changer. Her damage is supplemented by Enhance Killer latents along with Glavenus Weapon Assist who provides two Enhance Killer awakenings along with Tape Resist .
Active Skill Usage
|1||–||TPA as much as possible and pray for 1 Skyfall*|
|2||Solve 10c board|
|3||->||Solve 10c board & enjoy Skyfalls|
|4||–||TPA as much as possible and pray for 1 Skyfall*|
* If you use an active skill on Floor 1 or 4, you can mitigate the need to pray for a Skyfall but this also wastes time. I would not use this on the first floor but if you are feeling confident with your score from F1-3, you could use one on Floor 4 to guarantee the run at the cost of losing some time/points. If you do choose to do this, make sure you have at least 1 SDR on Horus (or any other 1-2 turn CD card) to be able to use their active after a 1 turn Skill Delay preemptive.
All Ranking Dungeons have some degree of luck and it is a matter of minimizing this overall for more consistent scores.
The Nyx Level Tournament is a wonderful opportunity for players to acquire a Crown provided they can build a team for these two Fixed Leaders.
For myself, I pursued a combo-oriented approach while still covering TPA along with Tape + Cloud Resist. This set up does require 1 Skyfall for floor 1 and 4 but I feel that is a risk worth taking as my average scores will be much higher due to the two 10 combo boards from Majic Lin and Xellos Skyfall buff.
