Dark Athena in Arena 3 – Solo and Coop Strategies

Introduction

Dark Athena 3193 is the newest craze to sweep through NA/EU as she is somewhat unrivaled in her speed and efficiency in clearing end game content. For the purposes of this article, I will be focusing on Arena 3 set ups to better optimize your experience from both a Solo and Coop point of view. This will include inheritance suggestions, Latents, and subs to bring.

I have written extensively about Arena 3 since my first clear in August 2016, but I want to produce a template to aid in your Dark Athena adventures.

If you wish to read my comprehensive Dark Athena guide, please refer to it HERE.

Solo clear

My second solo clear (first one recorded) and this was done pretty much right after I bought her so things may look less polished overall.

Arena 3

Powercreep has slowly caught up to Arena 3 and with Dark Athena, more and more people will be having their first taste of the Radar Dragons and other wonders held within this 25 floor dungeon.

Arena 3 has randomized spawns that are drawn from a fixed pool encounters so you can somewhat plan ahead for what you could encounter.

However, there are very few spawns that are actually threatening to Dark Athena and provided you loosely follow the templates shown below, you should have sufficient tools to deal with them. Continue reading Dark Athena in Arena 3 – Solo and Coop Strategies

Challenge Dungeons 37 Solo Clear Videos 8-10

Introduction

With 4x Technicals providing me with unlimited rank up potentials from Machine Hera (I only require 3-4 clears depending on overflow), I was able to experiment around more with this set of Challenge Dungeons and am happy to provide some glorious solo clears with some of my favourite leaders.

Challenge 10 – Sarasvati

This is one of my happier PAD moments as I had to try and come up with a team with enough Skill Boosts to avoid excessive stalling with a glass cannon leader while retaining a certain degree of damage control for floor 1’s resolve. After floor 1, I essentially followed the same strategy for the subsequent floors as my Meridionalis clear.

Challenge 10 – Meridionalis

My first clear of Challenge 10 so it is a bit more rough around the edges by comparison.

Challenge 9 – Dark Metatron

No RCV dungeons are wonderful for Dark Metatron as I am able to always ensure I stay at my maximum damage multiplier. The Spanking on floor 4 was also a nice touch.

Challenge 8 – Sarasvati

Any high multiplier leader without difficult activation requirements will excel in this dungeon as it is only 5 floors. Futhermore, a true button like Famiel Famiel acts as both a board changer and execution for floor 4 and their high defense.

Conclusion

This set of Challenge dungeons heavily favours glass cannon/non-tanky teams as most of the danger is simply having enough damage to one shot every floor.

Let me know what you used to clear this set of dungeons.

Happy Puzzling!

Solo Challenge 10 with Sarasvati (7×6 Board)

Introduction

Challenge Dungeons 29 is another opportunity for players to test their puzzling skills along with creativity to overcome a new set of obstacles for valuable rewards. For this Challenge 10, I decided to clear it solo to showcase how a glass-cannon leader with the proper planning and skyfall luck can succeed.

Dungeon commentary

I do not have a fully skilled up Amon Amon and was part of the reason I entered Coop as it would allow me to have sufficient skill boosts along with saving 50 stamina. If he had been skilled up, there would have been no need to enter via coop. If you disconnect from multiplayer, you do not receive the Quest Badge bonus (which is somewhat irrelevant as you would be choosing the +5% attack).

The reason I bring Amon is to utilize his counterattack mechanic to bypass Zeus/Hera’s resolve ability as they will strike you with a 90% health cut which is immediately counterattacked to kill them. This produces a safer run as you no longer have to worry about that floor.

Aside from the counterattack ability, my subs were mostly chosen for their orb changing capabilities to ensure I have enough Water-power (not firepower) to drown each floor. It is also beneficial to use a water team as the Blue Puppeteer will produce water orbs for free.

Finally, I used Andromeda to ensure my sub attributes do not heal the various encounters due to their colour absorptions.

Conclusion

This Challenge 10 is easily manageable with a non-light or dark glass cannon team as all the floors have high health values along with low mechanics.

What did you use to clear Challenge 10?
