    Based on your box:



    This is the exact team I'm running. I'm honestly considering dropping a second hanzo for D/B Vamp to better synergize with Pandora's active skill/more HP but honestly most of the time I could really used the hearts. It's worth noting my hanzos are max skilled which makes a huge difference. This team is great when it comes to boss burst.

    So I fairly recently got my Pandora up and running. But I'm rather short on the perfect orb changers at this point. This is what I'm working with atm:

    Also Padherder

    I've got a dark dragon knight all of skill level 2, as well as D/L Batman, but he isn't awoken yet. So I can work on those. But no Hanzo/Grape Dragon/etc. Karin seems to be my replacement for a Sonia, which isn't bad as long as I match a blue with my uber-dark shot.

    But the delay didn't strike me as terribly necessary on this team. About the only other interesting things I've got are Anubis, Yomi, Kurone and a charming temptress, but nothing really jumped out at me...

    Or I could just drop Pandora and go level up the Red guy, since I've got so many more orb changers there. Though no big ones and no Rodin...

    Any ideas?

    My first Hanzo is maxed skill, I only managed to get my second one during this godfest (yay I guess haha). I'll make sure to max him when the chaser dungeon comes back (to max my haku of course).

    ok i am slowly reading this thread, just finished page 39, but i couldn't wait anymore and wanted to see what you guys thought.

    little back story: orochi was the roll i stuck with after the tutorial, first godfest i rolled two horus out of three rolls. started working on horus, only to get frustrated with my orb matching skills

    my friends suggested i work on a mono dark team, so I have put a lot of effort into it, and then 3K godfest comes around, I IAP and get a DQ.

    So my DQ healer team is almost ready, and while I wait for the row enhancers i need for that team, I was thinking of practicing rows with satan. But that requires being able to beat satan.

    During the PC godfest I got a bonia and a pandora, and now from reading this thread, i think all my hard work might have just paid off.

    Here is what i have

    pandora unevolved
    bonia unevolved
    (Please don't hate me) ult evo max skilled hanzo
    CDK (almost need to evolve him) one away from max skill
    duke vamp (D/B) skill level 2 or 3 (haven't focused on this)
    vrtra
    baskilisk
    D/L Hades fully awoken

    I am thinking that my lineup would be:

    Pandora/Pandora
    Hanzo
    CDKV
    Duke Vamp
    D/D tiamat (I actually have the right dragon fruits for this from the pal)

    I have 17ish tamadra right now with like what 5 more to come this week, only need to save 1 for L Meta until i get my light row enhance team members, which could be never. 3 baby tamadra that need to be evolved too.

    thoughts/opinions?

    Hey guys, I'm thinking about investing in a Pandora team for relatively fast KoG farming and hopefully also be able to do some descends, what do you think would be the best team I could make from my box?

    Here's basically all the relevant monsters I have:

    [​IMG]

    I'm thinking a team of:

    Pandora
    D/W Batman
    FA Lucifer
    D/D Byakko(This should come out in the US before I get enough exp to make everything on the team high level)
    D/W Vampire

    With this team and a Pandora friend, I'd have 7 Row Enhances, 5 Skill boosts, and 2 Two-Pronged Attack Awakenings. Would Pandora+ Vampire+ FA Lucifer+D/W Batman skills be enough to take down Zeus if they were all above level ~70? Also if anyone else has a better suggestion, I'd be happy to get any advice I can get!

    Yes it easily will take down Zeus. The issue is getting to Zeus.

    I see... what sort of steps do you think I should take in order to have the earlier floors go smoothly? Maybe replacing Byakko with Grape Dragon?

    From your box jokerstar I would use:
    Pandora/Vamp/CDK Voice/FA Lucifer/Loki/Pandora

    Byakko I feel is too risky without Hanzo and D/W Batman seems like overkill for Zeus but Loki will at least boost damage for floor 9 and 10.

    Playstyle:
    -should have Vamp and CDK up at the start.
    -use whichever converts the most on the current board and always try to hoard dark/light/hearts on floors 1-7 while clearing only the minimum 6 dark orbs and using Vamp/CDK wisely (probably use each maybe up to 2 times before boss floors)
    -stall whenever able
    -if you can tank a hit from floor 8, stall there to get all skills up if needed. If you don't have the hp, then plan ahead.
    -floor 8, (tank hit if able and set up) use CDK while trying to keep as many green orbs as possible. (or use Pandora if no light)
    -floor 9, use Pandora and Loki (or use CDK and Loki). Can also set up if not on 1 timer
    -floor 10, use Pandora, Vamp, and FA Lucifer

    Team build will unfortunately depend on RNG on boss floors as you lack some of the better orb changers. Just try your best to clear out Blue/Red along with your rows.

    You want to be able to nuke 3 times consecutively to kill the mini-bosses/boss in kog.

    Tiamat isn't that big of an issue though, provided you can tank 1 hit from him and store enough dark orbs to get a good combo on him (you shouldn't have to use any abilities here).

    CDD is one of the bigger issues. You need at least 11-14 dark orbs to kill him before he OHKO's you. Since you have a delay, you should probably use it here. Use can use a Pandora active here.

    Zeus: You want to use your 'biggest' orb changer. Pandora->Vampire. Orb enhance with lucifer, and you should easily be able to OHKO.

    To be honest haku's active is useless if not paired with a hanzo. You're better off putting CDK in that spot. You can use CDK->Pandora to kill CDD.

    You can/should replace Batman with Loki also. His active makes the boss fights pretty easy.

    @Moozie
    your line up seems fine. maybe swap CDKV or tiamat for blue sonia depending on what your are doing. (Ex: I use blue sonia active for KoG floor 9). Tiamat is going to be a pain to skill up though. Might be easier to farm a cerberus when you can to replace tiamat

    @jokerstar

    Now that I think about you can make a somewhat stranger team with

    Pandora/Vamp/CDK Voice/FA Lucifer/Thanatos/Pandora

    and this might be more consistent/less RNG on the last 3 floors.

    Floor 8 - Vamp
    Floor 9 - CDK + Pandora
    Floor 10 - Thanatos, set up board for 3 turns, then Pandora + Vamp + FA Lucifer

    This way there is less overlap on your orb converting on consecutive turns. Also 3 turns of setup on zeus will likely let you get near a full board or two big rows.

    I am trying to build up my team.
    Can anyone advise on the best subs from the below?

    Vampire maxed skill
    Haku skill 4
    Hamahime maxed skill
    FA Lucifer unskilled
    Ronia unskilled
    CDK unskilled
    CDD unskilled
    Hades unskilled

    Idea is to build a reliable KoG team. Thanks.

    pretty much just using the substitutes for the "Sample 'Perfect' End Game Team" on page 1. So:

    Pandora/Vamp/Hamahime/Ronia/FA Lucifer/Pandora

    Play style is exactly the same as the "Perfect" team.
    Will have barely enough hp to take a hit from Tiamat if everything is max level and can still OHKO Zeus with Ronia + Hamahime + FA Lucifer.

    I guess I pretty much have a perfect pandora team, minus the pandora?
    I'm gonna use Vampire/Hanzo/Dmeta as subs so far. The boss burst can be either Haku or Gonia. Thoughts?

    Following up on my earlier post here, I'm now running the top level of the mask dungeon with this team:



    This team has enough HP (at least at my levels) to tank synced first floor hits (see screenshot below) and then has 4 skill boosts to get Hanzo up on the second turn to ensure a 1x6 to KO 1F. The rest proceeds as outlined in my earlier post. For the boss: Gryps, then Hanzo, then Perseus, then Pandora, then Angel. Make separate the darks with the hearts. If you have to pop Gryps to exit a floor like 3F, then you are going to end up with more hearts, but hopefully not too many.

    I'm really trying to find a team for the Sacred Mask room that doesn't involve grinding. Would something like Pandora - Yomi, Okuni, Izanagi, X (Ronia or Hanzo?) with friend Pandora work?

    Orb changers are pretty light but that's the closest I can get with 100% skill bind resist, Izanagi doesn't attack after Ronia but could at least give his 2x attack boost.

    Hanzo and Ronia both max skilled, Ronia is +297.

    Hello, would like some help with my Pandora team. Currently I am running Pandora, FA luci, Vamp, ECO alma (Hanzo doesnt exist in my game apparently) and Grape dragon all fully awoken. My question is with my box is there more of an optimal team I could have? recently I just pulled a dupe FA luci and pandora ; ; I dont know if that would help me or not. Thanks

    That setup looks like it could work with Hanzo in last slot if everything went perfectly but round 5 might be troublesome. You can't break green mask defense (unless you get really really lucky) so you would need 5 turns to ping it to death and healing might be an issue. You can consider switching Yomi with another Pandora to provide extra hearts/dark orbs for round 5.

    I don't quite know what you are using this team for so I can only offer general suggestions. FA luci and ECO alma seem like overkill as usually just one of them would be enough for burst. Your team needs more orb changers and nothing being max skilled only makes things slower. I would swap out ECO alma for Persephone for now. A second FA lucifer doesn't seem too useful though a second Pandora may be useful in some rare situations.
