Puzzle and Dragons is a tremendously deep game that has years worth of content waiting for players. Sadly, there is essentially no in-game information as to what mechanics, spawns, or what can actually happen in a dungeon which in turn creates a terrible guessing game.
Thankfully, we are eventually able to “solve” any dungeon with enough trial and error and for myself, what I find most helpful when trying to tackle a new dungeon is a Checklist of notable mechanics. From this Checklist, I will try my best to address all of the dangerous mechanics while prioritizing unavoidable abilities.
With this in mind, I would like to create a master Checklist for all of the Arena, Colosseum, and World of Carnage dungeons to help players better prepare themselves as knowing what can possibly happen is a huge asset in PAD.
How to use my checklists
With any dungeon, there are avoidable and unavoidable mechanics and it is important to address the unavoidable mechanics first. As such, there will be a priority-like system when looking at dungeon mechanics and you may have to forgo certain solutions depending on the depth of your Monster Box. Furthermore, certain teams/leaders may naturally counter specific mechanics. Continue reading Arenas, Colosseum & WoC/Shura Mechanics Checklist
Super Ultimate Colosseum is the hardest dungeon to date as it features an incredible array of dangerous spawns who have buffed up stats and abilities. There are many hurdles that plague this dungeon including massive HP pools, numerous resolves, combo shields, lethal mechanics, and repeated dangerous spawns. it is not for the feint of heart and only the most invested team and skilled players have a chance of conquering the Colosseum.
While Arena 3 has randomized spawns, the encounters in Colosseum are much harder by comparison and have dramatically larger health pools (there is some variance in appearances, but not as much). This presents a wonderful challenge and has injected a new sense of excitement into my Puzzle and Dragons life.

As this was my first time clear, I played quite cautious along with having several hundred people tuning into my Twitch stream. Playing under a large audience can be intimidating as your every move is critiqued and my conservative playstyle probably reflects that. As I play and clear Colosseum more, I will most likely improve my clear times and refine my set up. I will probably make an effort to stream everyday that Colosseum is available as it is the most exciting dungeon to play.
