    Ideally people will answer honestly, just so others (like myself) can get a sense of how far behind the meta they are.

    Just solo'd a2 for the first time with ilminerva a week ago.

    Since i just pulled aizen i think I could also solo a3 but I will postpone until the si update, because farming the right tans is annoying.

    I'm an idiot and needed very strong, save leads to clear Arena.

    A1 first clear with Gremory, two months ago.

    A2 first clear with Aizen, like 2 days ago...
    Aizen is the only lead I run for hard stuff by now.

    1 was with Tsubaki, 2 was with Aizen. 2 was a pain in my butt so I have to wait on 3.

    I did A2 with SQ/Hermes but A3 requires so much dedication and min/maxing that I'll just wait for power creep to slingshot me past it :(

    Solo a3 with myr and blue myr. I'm gonna solo a3 with Aizen sometime today and hopefully be successful. I'm tired of running ranking dungeon and not improving my score sigh.

    Solod A1 with sakuya when A1 first got to NA. Died many times. Successful run took over 2 hours planning my movements (those who've cooped with me know that I never take long to move my orbs and yolo most time but for arena1, the hardest dungeon at the time, I had to exert some effort and time.

    Solo A2 with awoken lucifer when luci was still a top tier lead. That also took many deaths and attempts but it was a faster run. Around 25 minutes i wanna say

    I put off running a3 for a while since the radar worried me, not gonna lie, but graps and I cleared with blue myr coop. Her first attempt at a3 I believe and my second (lexane and I attempted with blue myr but we died at radar stage)

    Did A2 with Krishna over the christmas break. Honestly it's not that much more difficult than A1; just bring in armor shatter/poison/lazer for the predras; preferably via SI.

    Waiting until the stat bump from SI before attempting A3 solo. Hooray for power creep.

    My first A1 victory was several months ago, like 1 week after the advent of SI.

    I haven't tried A2 (and thus A3). I don't have any interest.

    I would like to clear all three someday but no time to co-op + I generally suck means that'll take a while.

    I have solo cleared and can sort-of solo farm A1. Look forward to having the time to co-op farm for Py overload

    I did 1/2 with A.Luci when that was a thing. Been using Aizen for A3 but will probably switch over to the new Radra when we get it since the radar drop rate is terrible and Aizen isn't as reliable as Radra against the radars I still need drops for.

    Hi All,

    I voted 'no interest', but it's not quite accurate.
    It'd be nice to do Arena 1 for Py, I just haven't built up enough interest (i.e. time/effort) to plan together a co-op for it. :) Maybe someday!

    I've cleared 1 and 2. I probably could have cleared 3 with Myr but I took an aggressive approach against Noah Dragon and it backfired. Should have just stalled 99 turns.

    I cleared, but then drifted back to casually farming a1 because the drop rate on three is just an offensive troll. Screw that no-drop waste-my-time feel bad.

    So is a3 a litmus test for meta? Its as much a question of whether you want to bother with the inconvenience of A3-specific mass inherits (that are often a bit incorrect/suboptimal for runs anywhere else), and the distinctly unpleasant time sink of only being able to practice and learn how to fight the radars one half an hour run for an attempt at a time. (Thankfully, one shot challenge as incoming guerrilla now make learning/practice much more accessible.)

    The rewards are better than super misdesign trolly gathering of talents, but at heart it leans as much to vexation as challenge. So people skip over it, even if they're otherwise pretty combo adept and meta aware.

    Otoh, if not a3, what's the meta litmus? Particular challenge #N, the occasional okay designed c10, the hardest technicals in challenge mode? Meh. A3 is not to worst meta check, if we grant that only a subset of people will put up with its design.

    I like to use fair fight compositions into Athena/MHera annilation descends and the latest couple of troll mechanics descends as my litmus, but very subjective.

    Just A1 solo, but I have cleared the other two in co-op. They're both more trouble than they're worth for a bit of MP and a Tan, and I have no interest in hunting Radardrags at the moment.

    I've cleared A3 4 times. Twice solo and twice duo. Never got a radar drop. I'll wait for killer latents before I go back. Also working on teams to clear it with other than Myr.

    Only soloed A1 a couple weeks after ilm came out recently. Always paired with revo Minerva.

    I got close a couple of times with tsubaki (was gonna use a Silk inherit on a friend lead for kali), but never got that far as i got literally like 20 sopdets or parv in a row so i gave up.
