    I was getting ready to clear the Black Bowl Dragon challenge and took a quick look at PDX to make sure there weren't any funky boss skills that I had forgotten about. Nope, looked pretty straight forward, so I went in with the team I've been using for these Bowl Dragon challenges: Revo Leilan, R/L Leilan, XMas Ronia, Revo Minerva and Revo Leilan friend.

    Entered the dungeon and saw zero red orbs then something clicked in my brain... looked back at PDX. No Fire/Water orbs. Whoops.

    I almost quit, figuring the stamina loss wasn't the end of the world, but it occurred to me that the early floors could easily be cleared with sub elements at 20.25x, and the entire team was max skilled, so making fire orbs should be a non-issue.

    Sure enough, cleared it pretty easily. But yeah... don't forget to check those orb restrictions!

    I used DAthena for all the other bowl dragon challenges and consistently forgot to check orb restrictions. But I cleared anyways lol

    I always used to accidentally bring Myr into no RCV dungeons on accident.
    ...Now I do it on purpose as a challenge.

    i do this on purpose. Ilm x Ilmina is my S rank pairing of choice, so i just spam actives to get reds if the dungeon doesnt have them. best way is to pop a bi color board or tri color early, and save three of whatever color you need. they can skyfall away since the dungeon has none of those orbs, so saving four packs into the corners works really well for me.

    I end up doing this every time it seems, but fortunately I start with Int always so I notice before a difficulty that might matter.

    Yeah, I'd already cleared all difficulties of this dungeon long ago, so I only needed to run the added challenge mode... no easy mode warm up here. ;)

    Accidentally, I did that like you did. Only worse was I only have two sub att to work with since I came in with Rodin/Ronia/Napoleon/ACC/DK Tsubaki/Rodin. But actually able to kill floors leading up to boss with only two sub att feels kinda nice lol.
