    THIS game is rigged and completely full of shit. Dungeons are rigged. It would be nice to know what you will need for dungeon battles.... void defense. Delay enemy....most of quest 25 and above are rigged and are a waste of stamina time and fun. I won't be playing this game much longer if this B.s. continues

    First, welcome to the forums!

    Second, PAD can definitely be frustrating if you go in blind to a dungeon.

    Third, the anniversary quests above 25 are designed to be difficult, especially 41-50.

    For many dungeons, you can find information on http://www.puzzledragonx.com/

    The bad news is that PDX doesn't have information on the anniversary quest dungeons.

    The good news is that other PAD community members have written a helpful guide for quests 29-50: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1eF7NfkCJHRF4OX3nZsi6dNu_MBq3W7CRF9dnZkUp60g/edit?usp=sharing

    Hope this helps!

    And remember, PAD is a game! No sense playing if it's not fun. :)

    Good point. The 6th Anniversary Dungeon info in DadGuide is incomplete, but it's still an excellent resource.

    Here's a link to DadGuide on the Google Play store: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=info.miru.dadguide

    I know how this guy feels.

    I’ve been playing for years and almost made a similar post a couple weeks ago. It’s becoming particularly unfun to essentially be regulated to running your 1-2 teams that have All The Things (absorb void, VDP, FUA, awoken bind clear, combo-friendly) when you really want to be playing your other 30 more than competent leaders that you can’t even use for anything truly difficult.

    It’s also incredibly frustrating that half the difficulty of running a hard dungeon is slogging through the process of shuffling around your inherits just to show up.

    Or you could just run whatever you feel like, get creamed, rinse, and repeat until you finally win.

    Point is, I’m not exactly sure what I’m looking for in this game anymore, but having to run the same 2-3 teams for any remotely difficult new content is getting incredibly old and frustrating.

    I mean, unless you know a dungeon like the back of your hand, that's pretty much what it takes. Took me like 15-20 tries to beat AA when it first came out. You can stare at PADX but actually going through the motions will teach you a lot more. Once you understand those dungeons, doing them with weaker teams becomes easier.

    I know the feeling. Honestly, I feel like I'm either stuck playing D.Meta or Ed, the rest of my teams/leads, albeit fun, just isn't up to snuff to deal with some of this content. It makes it even harder when it comes to finding friends who play other leads too because they're thinking the same thing. True that you can now pair with your own leader but you need a dupe to do that.

    This. I feel like I can run B&J, or I can lose.

    (For the really hard stuff, I’ll probably lose either way, since I have no idea what I’m getting into.)

    I'm curious what you guys are struggling on. I don't own Dmeta, Ed, or B&J and had no trouble clearing the 50 anniversary quests and they have been pretty much the hardest non-arena dungeons we've had. These new descends haven't been tough. Haven't tried this newest one yet but I doubt it will be any worse.

    This makes sense for the longer dungeons like AA. That’s more of an endurance test than it is a blatant “Did you bring All The Things?” check. It’s more about your ability to make trade offs (“Do I use this skill right now, and pray I don’t hit Spawn X and need it later? Or do I take a gamble now so I still have that skill for later?”) than it is about the “Did you bring the exact three skills you need to survive these 3 back to back encounters?” style of crap.

    The perfect example of I’m complaining about is recent quest dungeon that had GFE as the final floor. You get to floor 3 and get destroyed by Vishnu unless you brought an absorb void. Then you make it to the final floor and get hit with *another* damage absorb check. Seriously? Two of those in a 6-7 floor dungeon? And I’m pretty sure the second floor was Awoken Artemis, meaning you also have an hp/shield and awakening unbind check.

    This is all compounded by the fact that it feels like getting up-to-date dungeon data is harder and harder these days.

    I like a challenge as much as anyone, but it’s frustrating to feel like I’m going into so much stuff blind anymore that I may as well just always stick with my top 2-3 meta teams for fear of wasting my time/stamina.

    I pointed out in the post above that these quest dungeons can be tough. Unless you're a pad god with an endless box of actives/tools, you're probably not getting through with some dated "fun" team going in blind. However, knowing what's in the dungeon, you can get away with using some of that older stuff because you can prepare. Pretty much the same trade-off we've always had to make.

    If you want to come post here, there's plenty of sources out there still. I (or someone else) can post links, videos, etc. This place isn't all that active so not likely anyone's going to go out of their way and write up a guides on all these quests but if you want them, we can give them.
