    Well, I'm less likely to get distracted than you 'cuz I don't have multiple other hypermaxed teams.

    ...still kinda considering +egging an Andro team next, though.

    I am impressed with anybody finishing the rushes with no stones. I'm still working on Zeus Mercury.

    Why not just use a strong team like Andromeda, should be closest to what's easiest for most descends.

    well i mean i did use andro for a lot of the dungeons theres just a few where its easier wiht other teams. like beorc is just easier with verdandi, wada is just easier with btron. and other things like that.

    and then rushes its not fun beating hera rush with andro until i get an alwida, and then devil rush its just easier with kali for me

    Just force those last few :3

    I remember you doing that other challenge where you need to beat descends with Valk or Cauchemar leads, it can't be worse than that right?

    Except Wada with Andro does sound sort of awful lol.

    Cleared hera beorc mythical with okuni team, was pretty nerve wracking. So far I cleared all the dungeons up to wadatsumi, don't think I'm gonna attempt any more.

    Congrats to win8x and noobftw! Here's my contribution.

    (EDIT: This for Challenge Descended! 1. I also ran Challenge Descended! 3 with LMeta: http://puzzleanddragonsforum.com/th...earing-all-dungeons-with-the-same-lead.78574/ )

    *Lineup*
    Used the team in my sig for all but the last two. Subbed out Fuu for those, and brought a Raph friend for 15. Obviously this is a very high +egg team: all but Sandal/Fuu were hypermaxed, Sandal was close to +297 and reached it by the end, and Fuu had +45 attack. I believe the versatility of the team in situations like this justifies the enormous +egg investment.

    *Failed Runs*
    Wadatsumi: 2 (felt sloppy and unprepared)
    Devil Rush: 2 (both on wave 1, see the lucky victory details here)
    (I didn't encounter Extreme King Metal Dragon on 15...I think I would have needed a tiny bit of skyfall love to clear him.)

    I can probably do the same thing with kirin if I wanted to try but..... all that work doesn't seem like it's worth it LOL
    Jade I think that's really impressive xD Devil rush is stupid anyway LOL

    I'm not ready to do a single lead, but I have been trying to use no team with ronia in it. I'm up to yomi. my lack of many decent non ronia red Dragon subs has me backed into a corner. Minerva is just so obvious though.

    thinking ahead to devil rush I'm leaning toward ceres balanced team, maybe with robin as a sub. not sure yet. not many plusses, I just made her last week.

    I have a small clan of ingress players that also play pad, we use hangouts for strategizing, like we do for ingress. (Join the resistance) having that group to bounce ideas off definitely helps.

    Nice one, Jade.

    It's a matter of priorities. For me, the priority is investing in a core set of monsters who can be used consistently across a variety of dungeons. I don't care as much about consistently bringing the same friend leader because I don't have to invest in it.

    Anyway it was just stupid Hera Rush.

    After failing Beorc 15 times today while trying to get a Dark jewel I think I can safely say that I won't be beating the Challenge version, either. :(
