Arena 3 Guide and Radar Dragons Strategies

Introduction

I have played an excessive amount of Arena 3 and, I have over 130 clears along with 43 Radar Dragons at the time of this posting. Arena 3 is by no means an easy dungeon, but with more end game teams available and half stamina cost, more players are able to start their journey.

This post will cover the general strategies when approaching Arena 3, but will not cover specific teams. If you wish to view all the teams I have used to clear Arena 3 and their respective inherits and latents, feels free to check out my previous guide HERE.

When entering Arena 3, you will have to accept the fact that you will not have a 100% chance to win as any number of deadly spawn combinations along with certain Radar Dragons will counter various teams. You can do your best to mitigate the risk through fully invest cards, research, experience, and coop.

Background on Arena 1 & 2

Ultimate Arena (Bipolar Goddess) is designed to be the final test of a player’s skill. The first incarnation, Arena 1, was a hellish 21 floor dungeon that featured a 30 million HP boss at the end along with each floor drawing from a pool of random spawns to cause even more heartache and randomness. It is the randomness that keeps Arena exciting as you will always have a different path leading into the final floors and makes it harder to counter every single mechanic that could appear. Over time, Arena 1 became significantly easier with the advent of Powercreep, Coop, and Skill Inheritance. As such, many players (including myself) have began to use it as a fun way to dump stamina and acquire Py Shynpy along with using more niche leaders to up the excitement factor.

[Videos] One-Shot Challenge 6 Clears

Introduction

My Zeus and Noah Dragon clears from my Mantastic and Fantastic account. Both runs killed the Radar Dragons very quickly and should provide some inspiration on how to deal with them. I have been having a challenging week, but content should begin to flow out once again.

Lakshmi vs Zeus Dragon


Myr vs Noah Dragon


Conclusion

Hopefully these two clears showcase how to efficiently deal with this set of One-Shot Challenges. Many teams are capable of clearing them and I would like to know who you used.

Happy Puzzling!

One-Shot Challenge 6 Guide – How to deal with Zeus, Noah, and Gaia Dragon

Important change

You will not face the same Radar Dragon as you did the first two times as these challenges rotate so everyone will eventually face all three.

Introduction

This set of One Shot Challenges will allow players to acquire a Radar Dragon outside of Arena 3. This is Fantastic for the general population as these dragons are required for the new evolutions for the original Monster Point cards as Arena 3 is out of reach for most teams. The problem with Arena 3 is that you have to encounter the correct dragon AND have it drop which can prove a frustrating experience. Conversely, this set of Challenges provides a fixed spawn and a guaranteed drop. However, you do not get to choose your encounter and are instead assigned one based on your starter dragon choice. This can be easily found as the coloured orb beside your in-game name. Finally, this challenge must be completed in solo mode, but you are able to stone to continue (unlike Arena 3).

Just be aware that this is meant to be an end game challenge and many players will be unable to successfully clear it. I would place the difficulty of the One-Shot Challenge to be similar to Arena 2. This is because you know the spawns and can carefully plan around each encounter unlike the randomness of Arena 2; however, the Radar Dragons are significantly harder than any other spawn.

With that being said, a wide variety of teams are capable of clearing this dungeon, but it is vital to be fully plussed, latented, and inherited where required.

If you wish to see my clears on Fantastic and Mantastic for Gaia and Zeus Dragon, check out my next post HERE to see the full team set up/latents/inherits.

For this set, I will be using Lakshmi on Mantastic and still deciding for Fantastic. Regardless, I will upload the videos when completed.

Which Radar Dragon do I fight?

Players are assigned a specific Radar Dragon to fight on floor 20 based on their starter dragon choice. This choice is indicated by the coloured icon beside your in-game name.

  • Fire Fire fights Zeus Dragon
  • Water Water fights Noah Dragon

For example, Mantastic started with fire and will fight Zeus (Fantastic has Noah):

Important change

You will not face the same Radar Dragon as you did the first time through as these challenges rotate so everyone will eventually face all three.

Introduction

This set of One Shot Challenges will allow players to acquire a Radar Dragon outside of Arena 3. This is Fantastic for the general population as these dragons are required for the new evolutions for the original 5 Monster Point cards (Shiva, Neptune, Odin, Ra, and Yomi Dragon) as Arena 3 is out of reach for most teams. In addition, you have to encounter the correct dragon AND have it drop which can prove a frustrating experience. Conversely, this set of Challenges provides a fixed spawn and a guaranteed drop.

Ultimate Ra Dragon: Review and Analysis

Introduction

The original 5 Monster Point Dragons were some of the most powerful cards in Puzzle and Dragons at the time of their release. However, Powercreep has not been kind to the majority of them with only Ra Dragon Ra Dragon staying relevant in today’s meta as a leader. Thankfully, GungHo has decided to release a new evolution for Yomi and Ra Dragon in hopes of resurrecting their viability and we can only presume that the other three will follow suit. Unfortunately for North America, the evolution requirements for these MP Dragons will prove troublesome as the only way to currently acquire the Radar Dragons is to clear Arena 3.

Video commentary

Evolution requirements

We still do not have the full details of any other card outside of Ra Dragon, but here are the current evolution requirements:

evo-req

Perhaps one of the main benefits of playing in North America is that we are given additional time to prepare for new evolutions as both of these require a large investment of resources.

Ultimate Evolution Ra Dragon

The Super-Ultimate Fried Chicken has now been electrified to even greater heights with his new evolution. Super Ra Dragon 3265 has had his leader skill and base stats buffed to allow him to better compete with the heart cross meta.

[Videos] Fighting Radar Dragons

Introduction

I play a lot of Arena 3 and try my best to always record my Radar Dragon encounters as there is very little documentation available as very few players are able to successfully clear on a repeated basis. In addition, I also try to stream while making my Arena attempts so you should check out my Twitch Twitch page every Monday and Thursday at 6pm PST. Please refer to my Arena 3 Guide I posted earlier for a full breakdown of the fight.

Hephaestus Dragon

By far the most magical thing I have ever done in my entire PAD career. Just WOW

Zeus Dragon

Arguably one of the easiest dragons to face and is the most universally approachable for the various leaders that can clear Arena 3.

Conclusion

Arena 3 is a special place. Anything can happen and you will witness many Myracles if you continue to follow my website!

Myr: Arena 3 & Radar Dragon Strategies

Introduction

For those who follow my Twitter, you may have seen my tweets showcasing my various Arena 3 clears and my lack of Radar Dragon drops. However, my consistency in clearing Arena 3 is only improving with each attempt and I wish to share my experience and strategies to help enhance your own chances of success. Very few players have been able to clear Arena 3 and from various Google searches, even fewer discussions/guides. Just bear in mind that a lot of my strategies and advice revolves around using a Myr Miru team in coop as that is the only high end leader I possess. Other favourable leaders with high clear rates include, but not limited to: Ronove Ronove, Kaede Ult Kaede, Ra Dragon Ra Dragon, Xiang Mei Xiang Mei, Gremory Gremory, and Sherias Roots Sherias Roots. Just keep in mind that no team can have 100% clear rate and you have to go in with the mindset that certain Radar Dragons will ruin your run.
