Version 11.2 Update, Ragnarok Dragon Evo, and if Arena 2 is Worth Running

Such a scary pre-emptive

Awoken Archdemon Lucifer has the inherent advantage of producing a very durable team due to 1.82x HP/RCV along with 16.4x ATK to devil and god type monsters. This alleviates the need to bring any form of damage mitigation as you can survive the largest pre-emptive strike on floor 19 and the God Killer God Killer awakening helps burst through the final floors. However, to tackle Arena, Awoken Archdemon Lucifer teams require certain key subs/role fulfilment: Continue reading Awoken Lucifer vs Arena
