Question Time with Mantastic – August 2021


The general gist of Question Time posts are for players to ask various PAD-related questions that do not have a simple/Google-able answer or related article on my website. I do play other games and have often found myself having specific/unique questions about it but have no where to go and can imagine this may hold true for some of my readers. With that being said, there will be some restrictions on the types of questions I will be answering. If planning on commenting on a regular basis, it is advantageous to create a WordPress account to both receive notifications as well as giving me a point of reference as to who I am responding to.

Do’s and Don’t

download For the most part, almost any question will be answered, even some non-invasive Off-Topic ones; however, it is best to ask questions that require explanation/why/my personal opinion. The following examples are Fantastic types of questions to ask:
  • Of these options, what is the best Yusuke team I can make for Arena 3?
  • What direction do you think GungHo will take with the 4x HP leads?
  • Can Heart Cross teams be revived and if so, how?
x The following types of questions will not be answered by me either because it has a simple Google-able answer or shows a lack of effort on the reader’s part:
  • Anything that Google/Padx can answer
  • A link to your entire Monster Box and saying “make me a team”


I hope my readers use this opportunity to ask questions that will hopefully improve their overall game play and progression. Happy Puzzling!

  1. Thoughts on Cecilia? I’ve been using her blue version as a Royal Oak sub with the double damage cap latent and Amatsu assist.


    1. Shizumaru, Miada, and Chun-Li are the other subs, but I plan on replacing Chun-Li with blue Albrecht when possible.


  2. Do you think we will eventually see an active that enlarges the board to 7×6 for X number of turns? To me, since the mechanics already exists in dungeons, why not as an active?


  3. Hey Mantastic – love the new review formats!

    Having struck out on my main account fishing for Nautilus (alt got BOTH subs, go figure), who would consider acceptable asymmetrical pairings with someone else’s? My options are basically Nadeko, NYArtemis and Berte from the last Gung Ho run.


        1. Guessing normal since it has the same basic activation requirement and shield/bonus combos. Lower ATK but shouldn’t hurt too much.


  4. I’m trying to make teams for the three flower leads (I was strangely lucky to roll all three). For now I’m focusing on the light lead. Im trying to cover all common mechanics seen in the late game arenas. I’ve figured that the daffodil, Christmas Tamara and dark Karin are good subs, but who would you add for the last sub? A damage void or damage absorb sub? I was thinking of Dyre, Asuna, or Touya. Any thoughts on good subs for this team? Would D Karin be a good choice for the double damage cap latent? Or would you do something completely different like focusing on changing into Phyllis quickly?


    1. Void Damage Void is pretty important for that team so Dyer works or using Rudra’s inherit

      Karin can successfully use the double cap latent and her base active is meaningful

      Regardless, it is best to build a team based on the dungeon you are playing


  5. hey mantastic how you doing… hope you always in good condition… just curious.. what happend to your double triple or more god monster in your box.. do you sell them or exchange or….


        1. Hey sorry for late late reply….

          7×6 kio means entering the dungeon with a 7×6 leader (eg. fasca) then Leader Swapping your Kio in via an inherit

          Then you have Kio as your lead on 7×6 =)


  6. Hi Mantastic,
    Do you still have any best friends slots available? I have a bunch of the top tier leaders including nautilus, the water and fire sprout, mikage, ryumei etc. I would love to add you as a best friend.



  7. One mechanic I really don’t like about this game is finding an asymmetrical friend pairing for specific leaders. It’s frustrating to roll something like Hydrangea Star Sprout and not being able to find a friend that uses Velkhana. It’s just luck if that monster pops up when it comes time to select a friend leader. Is there any chance that in the future the game will give users the option to search for specific friend leaders to use? If not, what would be a reasonable response from gung-ho for not giving that option?
