[Videos] Challenge 10 & 9: A Mantastic & Fantastic Coop Spectacular


This round of Challenge Dungeons came with a wide array of challenging spawns along with problematic mechanics that require careful planning to overcome. All the videos were lifted from my Twitch stream (which you can catch every Monday and Thursday at https://www.twitch.tv/mantasticpad) so excuse the lack of editing. Blue Sonia Blue Sonia is an Fantastic leader due to her high burst potential, wonderful damage control, and insane recovery. Due to the music being played on stream, some countries may not be able to view them on YouTube; however, you can simply re-watch the past broadcast on Twitch =)

Challenge 10

Challenge 10 had a wide array of troublesome spawns that required you to have damage control, bind clearing, and high burst damage to succeed. I made a nearly lethal error on the second floor as I misread that he will bind all monsters for 4 turns on his first attack. Lesson learned: carefully read all the dungeon mechanics!

I used B/L Hermes BL Hermes as a base for inheriting Awoken Sakuya Sakuya to remove the preemptive dark binds from Nordis. Normally having a card that is not bind immune inherit a bind clear is risky; however, Nordis will only bind dark monsters so I was safe.

Aside from the miscalculation on the second floor, everything went according to plan and just goes to show the power of Blue Sonia when it comes to stalling.

Challenge 9

Challenge 9 should have been renamed “How to Kill Ilsix” as the other floors were relatively straight forward by comparison. I chose to use Blue Sonia due to her amazing recovery and her ability to easily handle Ilsix at the end. Continue reading [Videos] Challenge 10 & 9: A Mantastic & Fantastic Coop Spectacular

How to kill Sopdet and her 200k Absorb

I probably speak for everyone in saying that Awoken Spodet Sopdet and her 200k absorb shield is one of the deadliest encounters in Puzzle and Dragons. Sopdet is a dangerous encounter that can be found in many challenge dungeons, Arena, or Sphinx Descended. She is the cause of many heart breaks and I wanted to share some strategies I use to mitigate the risk.

Sopdet death
The pain is real

There will always be an element of luck involved when playing PAD, but it becomes even more apparent when unwanted skyfalls heal Sopdet instead of killing her. Generally speaking, Sopdet has

  • ~1.5 million health
  • Light element to start and switches to dark when under 50%.
  • Absorbs all damage dealt above 200k
  • Kills you after 4 turns
