    agreed. this was much harder than your average A1 run. the first few floor require pretty careful planning. persephone alone is just a dick.

    I finally completed C9 alt after about 10 attempts (if not more); ended up doing it with R.Bastet. I'm done with this set of Challenge dungeons. Frankly, I don't want it badly enough to do it coop and I also don't have the skill to do it solo past where I am now. Props to everyone who's done it solo, I don't know how you guys managed.

    Congrats! Glad it helped you :) Yes I also had an extra active up if needed. More of a safety thing. The important thing is having ra and stalling efficiently for actives.

    Nice, I totally ripped off your strat.



    Now I just need to do regular C10 and then decide whether to try non-cheese on C11.

    Nice haha. You can also use Ilm on C11. I used Ilm/Apollo/Thor/Ralph/NY Yomi. SB badge. Basically get under 50 within 6 turns. I used Apollo turn 1 to get him back at the en in case of troll. If he is not enough to get under 50, use one of the ilms too. Then under 50 put up Ralph. You can use Ilm, Yomi and Thor in that first turn of shield and it should be enough. If not, you have another turn in which you can use Apollo to finish off. You can replace NY Yomi with Venus. And Apollo can be another Ilm or maybe an alcyone perhaps.

    I might try that, but I'd be stuck using Genie instead of Raph, which sucks.

    Satan can change his attribute before attacking so it'd be a gamble to use Genie?

    Genie should be ok. He will change to dark again before hitting when under 50.

    Thanks for this! I'd been staring helplessly at the dungeon and at a complete loss on what to use. I'd totally overlooked Ilm.

    I ran Ilm/Raphael/TamadraPurin/Tifa/WuKong/Ilm

    Pinged with no actives until Raphael was up. Ilm + Tamadrapurin brought him to 30-40%. Troll second Ilm active took off another 10-15% and then WuKong/Tifa finished him off.

    Oh and, I used the +15% attack badge. Definitely recommend that if you don't need the skill boost.

    Problem with Genie is you take a big hit to firepower, compared to Raph.

    For the full-on cheese setup where you kill Satan with four actives, will his 99% shield trigger at below 50% hp even if you don't actually match any orbs?

    EDIT: Nm, I brought the Genie inherit but didn't need it.

    No it doesn't. But his turn goes to 1 even under delay but it won't matter anyway.

    Cleared all but the Cancer10 No Awakenings. Ilm x Ilm for C8 regular and C9 No Dupes.

    had a nice cheese plan where we were just gonna OHK the first two floors of C9 No Dupes, and partner was gonna raphael then Ilm to kill third floor and tank his rage hits.

    we forgot to inherit SDR skills...so we stalled for a natural board, i knocked him perfectly into the dark, and partner Ilmed to kill through the shield.

    Finally cleared C10 no awakenings with Ilm (Ilm/Ilm/Wukong/Ra/Diao Chan/Ilm). I wasn't using a burst and Phoenix kept healing under 50%. I couldn't use an Ilm active because I needed to heal going into Satan. I threw Loki on Diao Chan and on the last or second to last turn on Phoenix (who never healed the entire 3-4 turns under 50%), I had to use Loki and hope the 3 light and 3 red was enough to finish - luckily, it was. I popped Ilm and Ra on Satan and one-shot with Loki's second turn and a 15/15 split board.

    I replaced Saria with Diao Chan, but I probably should have brought Saria and left Ilm sub at home.

    Gah, been failing trying some version of this, team is R.Ra/Ganesha/R.Apollo/Kanna, the reason for Kanna and Ganesha is for my kill shot, I have no light enhance and Kanna covers MOST of the team with her active. Problem is last time I forgot I need to kill Phoenix and be at full hit points so I have to burn either Appollo or an Ilm active first turn. I forgot about that last time and got stuck in a loop of him healing to full until his 6th turn. But I know this team can do it as tested in endless with both actives up and a good Ilm board R.Appollo does 11mil himself.

    Also what was really odd last night I failed but I got Phoenix to about 20-30% first turn and... and he didn't heal, I have never seen that and I can't explain it either.

    I'm still working on C10 No Awakenings.

    Tried twice each with Light Myr and Meridionalis and made some errors of ignorance (e.g. Meri: not enough damage with 8 orbs to one shot Siren-->got leaders bound-->dead; Myr: forgot about Phoenix hit and didn't have enough hp).

    I'll try again with Meri, but finding the friend who has ASQ on Meri is the rate limiting resource.

    I can do that for you if you want. Put up a Meri with ASQ that is. Message me and let me know.

    I myself though have this whole set of challenges clear with Noctis for them all except I used The One True God for the C10 No Awakenings of course. I'll be back with my clear of the C11 with Anubis tomorrow maybe. I wanna have full stam going into trying it in case of bad boards.

    Trying to do C10 alt with Ilm... Unforunately, light is not something that I level/play very often.

    Ilm/Saria/Raphael/Venus(Vajra)/Paimon

    Other option is Pollux but she's not skilled.

    Everything is leveled but minimal pluses.. I also don't have Ra or anything with true damage. Do you think it is still doable with Ilm?

    Would inheriting Vajrayaksa (Light wisdom god) be better than Loki?

    It's going to be close to impossible without true damage or a bind clear for Michael. You'll need to burst Michael on the first turn before he binds your leaders. You'll have at most 7-8 turns coming into Michael's floor, so no big burst will be up. You need 16 turns for Raphael to be up for Michael's big hit - you'll only have, if you're lucky, 12.

    edit: You could try Pollux (or Valk) instead of Raphael or Venus and hope you have enough hearts/light and at least 3 reds to be able to burst. But you'll have to time the first 2 floors just right to kill on their last turn.

    edit 2: Vajrayaska likely won't be up in time to use on Phoenix if you inherit. You'd have to get extremely lucky and have Gigas on a 2-turn counter to get the 19 turns necessary to get him up in time. If you use him straight up, you should be ok. Also forgot to mention, lack of plusses will make this extremely difficult.
