Tifa x Haohmaru Versus Alt. Arena 3

Health update at end of article


Alt. Arena 3 is considered the hardest dungeon in the game at this point in time and when it first came it out, it provided a great challenge to many players due to the revamped mechanics and health pools.

Despite having numerous lethal mechanics present, it can be cleared by a wide variety of teams but one important factor is consistency. Getting a single clear is great but being able to repeatedly farm this dungeon is invaluable from a rewards perspective.

For myself, Tifa x Haohmauru is my most consistent team due to the deep sub pool Light can draw from, 7×6, Auto Follow Up Damage, massive healing, and incredible damage potential.

At this point in time, 7×6 and Auto Follow Up Damage are the strongest leader skill mechanics and being able to utilize both of them will most likely solidify this leader pairing for a prolong period of time.

With this in mind, I wish to explore how I built my own team along with addressing the major hurdles that can be found in Alt. Arena 3.

Final Fantasy REM 6 Stars Review and Analysis – July 2019

Monster information was generously added in by Adam aka tocshi.


The Final Fantasy Collab is one of the older events in Puzzle and Dragons, but it has not been seen for quite some time. This has led to the vast majority of cards growing stale and forgotten. With that being said, the entire Collab is receiving a massive overhaul for both new monsters and new evolution forms for existing cards along with buffs across the board.

All of this will make Final Fantasy one of the best events in Puzzle and Dragons that also costs 5 Magic Stones per pull. What makes the Final Fantasy Collab so strong is the fact that it has one of the best Diamond/6* rates of any Collab (22.5%) along with each card having numerous forms. This grants them an additional layer of viability along with the Weapon Assist forms (Crystals) being exceptionally powerful.

With that being said, one of the biggest drawbacks of the Final Fantasy Collab is the massive rolling pool, which makes it significantly harder to acquire any one specific card. Thankfully, the 5 Magic Stone cost grants us the lowest cost if using the Monster Exchange system.

This article will summarize each card’s strengths and weaknesses along with examining each individual form they can assume. As a result, this will be an exceptionally long article and CTRL + F may be your best friend. Furthermore, I will be breaking up this review into two parts for 6, and 5/4-star cards.

The 5/4-star review can be found HERE.

Regardless of card’s ranking, you should always keep it if it is your very first time acquiring them.

Note about Skill Inheritance

Any card that comes out of a Collab REM or REM that can achieve at least a 5-star form is able to be used as an assistant for Skill Inheritance. This means all the Final Fantasy cards can be used as assistants and you should think twice before vendoring any of them. For more information about Skill Inheritance, feel free to check out my guide HERE.
