    Interesting--that's a change from a few years ago, I guess. It's surprising how farmables went from "ADKZ at best" to "15x unconditional ATK" with some surprisingly useful skills.

    I still don't really consider the MP cards farmable, but I guess they are.

    In any case, if I had time to farm up a Zeus Verse I would, but that won't happen now--I might be able to sneak into the top 3rd by partnering with a ZV friend though, which is not bad, all things considered.

    You can get zeus olympios from february quest and just run unevod verse. May need to add 1 combo to some floors but good enough for 1-20% i think. Some notes i wrote on day 1
    1) use zeus verse and gotto go fast as possible
    2) Try to have 100% jammer and poison resist, but if you are poor aim for 100% jammer first
    3) Have 2 heals
    3) have something to kill Undine (Balance)
    4) have something to kill lak (God/Balance)
    5) have something to kill Diagoldos (Dragon/Attacker)
    6) Devil killers

    The New Arena is a new level of troll, but it's given us a chance to farm KingTan, Jewel of Creation, Pixelit, Rainbow Dragon Fruit, PreDra, Dragon Caller (probably the same drop rate as Radar Dragons in A3) and Snow Globe all in one place with decent EXP. I'd say this is harder than Colosseum but slightly easier than AA. This is where the Tape Resist, Blind and Cloud Resist comes in handy.

    Lots of new enemies from GFE and pantheons series.

    I just looked into it on PadGuide (info is not confirmed apparently)

    cool :
    • no Sopdet, Parvati, Vishnu !
    • no DQ Hera
    • no Radar dragon !
    • lots of new spawns
    • another way to get radar dragon callers !
    not cool :
    • tons of damage void. Not having at least one pixel/VDP sounds like looking for trouble
    • tons of resolves.
    • Awoken Oichi on floor 13 will skill delay by 99 turns if you fail to reach 8 combos 5 times
    • lots of other shenanigans to keep us busy
    The bosses (Skuld, Verdandi, Urd) seem to have an interesting skill set. They have a resolve, lots of HP and 10M damage void. If you hit the resolve, they heal 50% of their HP and it appears the 60%-50%HP zone is a rage zone with 2 skills ; either a 147k+ hit or a scroll.
    If you get them again under 10% HP they awoken bind, then kill on next turn (147k+ hit again).

    Sounds like fun and full of shenanigans at the same time.

    Doesn't look that hard, biggest obstacle should be the radars everything else isn't too tough from the numbers.
    Norns can be delayed and poisoned to deal with resolve and 200 million burst should be doable for most meta teams.

    Well, one shot enemies with 250M+ HP should be doable if those enemies doesn't have damage void. Luckily the Norns only have 6 turns of damage void and they can be delayed. Toughest floor I'd say the Dragon Caller floor. VDP SA on some non-pixel cards could be a savior to kill the Dragon Caller floor quickly without dealing with their mechanics.

    I kinda like how they designed the dungeon without spiking up the difficulty again (even if there are a lot of really troublesome spawn).
    It's also a lot more entertaining to watch that typical alt arena/arena3.

    This is for Japan currently so a different dungeon entirely. We could get it in a few months, a year, or maybe never unfortunately.

    GungHo is introducing a freaking 10 combo awoken skill.

    * loud sigh *

    We might rename this game at this point, Puzzle & Dragons sounds off, it should be Puzzle & Diablos because it seems we'll keep seeing him everywhere every time for quite some time.
    Unless the upcoming dark Ra Dragon has a 10c, bind immunity, a FUA maybe, and a leader skill that goes along the lines of 7x6 board + ATK x10 for matching rainbow + shield + HP and RCV boost for gods/devils because why not. And I know it will absolutely have all of that.

    Then it will be Puzzle & Dark Radra.

    Yeah I'm very surprised they doubled down on the combo meta even more. Guess we should be thankful that we don't need a Diablos to use him....

    Man i wish they would diversify the meta a little more. Rows have been dead for months, maybe towards a year or so. heart match leaders like Parvati and Lakshmi have been dead for like a year or 2. TPA has been dead ever since 7c became a thing. 5 match is barely something with Nergigante, and not much else. Its all about 7x6 and Diablos now. Maybe some color cross too but also on a 7x6 board to be worth it.

    I actually liked row teams and tpas and heartcross and shit. Idk but just making a bunch of simple 3 matches gets old quick.

    My guess is dark Radra will have a LS along the lines of Amun but not batshit overkill strong instead he'll have some bulk.

    yeah, everyone moved to combo meta because it was way harder to be orb trolled and the burst was insane but...I think people, including GH, are starting to kinda just conflate combo count with skill. I mean, that's kinda the basis of the 7C awakening in the first place. which ignores the skills that the rest of the options require. Rows require you to congregate specific orbs in one place and more care in orb management where as combos don't need to worry. TPAs and crosses and 5 match are about maximizing combos using awkward shapes that intrinsically cut down your combo count. Heart matches are about balancing between healing and attacking when hearts are a resource for both. even rainbow leads are mostly outpaced by combo leads when they too are more bound to board trolls themselves. and with 7x6, combos just aren't a big deal. hell, specifically on rows, 7x6 is worse in some respects.

    it's all dead. out of the top leads, essentially all of them except Ameno are combo leads. Even Yog and Kami are, essentially, combo leads for most people.
