    Yeah, I know.... what a informative title... Right?

    Well... that's how I felt after loosing on the 19th floor of the One Shot Challenge with my Acala team:

    (Acala, Verdandi, Vishnu are hypermaxed, rest is just max skilled, no +eggs)

    Everything went well (FYI: Blue Starter):
    - U&Y didn't cause much trouble aside for the 10 turns stalls.
    - I even faced Zeus Stratios and was able to 6 combos with 2 cross (no +combo active involved) -- after a long and carefully planned move :)
    - Same for Zeus Vulcan... the red attribute didnt bother me at all...

    Scariest floor was probably: Takeru Dragon... but mostly coz I didn't wanted to use any active :p

    Well, everything went well... until Z&H......
    I knew I had to be careful coz I didn't have a active blind clear...
    So I calculated how much would a red cross + a green cross and 5 combos would do... and it seems to be fine....
    Yeah... not quite... I guess I miscalculated by a lot... coz I thought it would take about 51%, leaving some margin (between 51 and 40) for the extra potential sub color combos... Sadly it looks like I took a LOT more... and brough him down to ~30%-35%...
    Worst of all: I forgot to make to have Parvatti up.... with 5 hearts... I couldn't even unbind my subs... :(

    I feel SOOO stupid... I'm not even sure where my calcul went wrong....

    A funny strategy you can do vs Zera is just nuke them turn 1, they resolve back up to 51%, and since you have parv you can just heal up from their gravity and ping them a little slightly past resolve (1% worth of hp) without activating your LS.

    Now I feel even dummer lol :)
    Thanks for the tip. I was considering bringing someone else other than Parvatti on the team (like: Ana Ceres)...

    Another easy way to deal with Zera is just to apply counterattack buff onto your team (e.g. Astaroth's active), and then 1-shot them. They will attack you first before trying to heal up, and that attack will kill themselves.

    Yeah I used that one quite a few time, it's just that Astaroth isn't really a great sub for Acala :)

    I always try these things then stone because I'm a pathetic player :(
    People are like "hey, I'm clear this OSC with Zero stone" and I'm like "hey, I burn some stone for revive to clear this OSC". Feel so noob :(

    I don't stone dungeons so yeah, I either skip or fail. This one I am skipping. Good luck to the OP. You can do it!

    I'd rather stone it if I know I can beat it. I just hate the idea of it looming over my head that I need to complete it at some point or another before the event ends.
    I would normally agree with you but given the rewards, the stone(s) used to beat it is probably worthwhile.

    What I do for Z&H is stall two turns storing heart in the top right and left corners to avoid orb trolling and then when they don't have the status shield I just delay them and blast them down and then kill at my leisure.

    Each player has their own path. Mine has always been, if I cannot beat it then I don't get the rewards. I wait to have a team or skills to beat it. That is just my own path. The game is already way past my skill level so getting this will not help me much anyway

    I'm the same; if I can't beat it... then too bad... I'm not gonna stone it.

    I did made an exception or two in my Pad Life :), the last one was the stupid C10 with fixed team (Zeus lead - no awoken... stall 20 turns somewhere... kind of crap): I made it to the very last floor, manage to take him down to barely nothing despite the awful skyfall luck (i.e: no extra combo what-so-ever) and Echidna was up, so i knew I was gonna clear it to get the stone back. It only took one turn to finish him off... This type of fixed team are just dumb imho. and It was either I clear it now, or i was not gonna attempt it again.

    So far I haven't been able to clear the last two one-shot challenge, this one... well with Acala, I do stand a nice chance :) Hence why I keep trying.

    ---

    BTW: I'm currently in the middle of the run, here's a screen shot of the current floor:

    Taking a little pause, recharging the phone.

    Looks like I'm gonna be trying to stall for 99 turns.

    EDIT: Thanks @Zaku for the tip for clearing Z&H, it did work with some clumsiness, as once they regain 50% HP, I managed to forget the 5 min combos :) so I healed them a bit before bringing them below 50%, then I stalled a few more turn for Verdandi to be up and burst for the kill :)

    !!!!!! Wooot!!!!!!!
    Took several tires, and on that final floor: patience paid off...

    Barely used any skills during the 99 stalling turns... It was long... but safe.
    Everytime he was absorbing green, I tried to do a green cross to restock his HP in order to avoid the 90% threshold.

    I faced Stratios every single times I reached this floor, which is the worst one for my team :)
    What team did you plan to run this dungeon with?

    i dunno. want to secure 10% in the ranking dungeon first. but i will most likely use Ilm x Minerva and hope Zeus Dios doesnt spawn. I have zero good teams with the HP to tank his preempt and i dont have the HP 15% badge. so i'll just have to fly blind with Ilm x Minerva.

    EDIT: never mind, its Gaiadragon this time.

    I cant tank any of Gaiadragon's hits, HP or not. all my teams are glass cannon or conditionally resistive.

    Wow, super nice! I've tried Acala many times but still cannot use her well. For the sake of God I always mess up the 3 cross and can never make it, can you give me some ideas on how to make 3 cross?
