    RE: Dark Metatron Team Building

    Here's a story from the weekend with my D Meta team:

    I finally got all of the sub pieces for my team last week (Kagu, Freyr, Sasuke, Gryps) and took it out for a spin with the tier 5 normal dungeons.

    Even though all the subs are fairly low level (total HP with friend = ~10K), the team was just blowing past everything. The only annoyance is that if you get a sky heal combo right before the boss, then you're in for an interesting fight. To fix that, I eventually replaced Freyr with Satan, and that made things much more predictable.

    This weekend I tried running OOH with this team. I decided against using Big Flamie because things were so quick with the tier 5's so I wasn't going to be bothered trying to stall. Big mistake!

    A couple of runs went fine until I had one where I hit 3 mystic masks on consecutive turns. I managed the first two, but by the third one I was out of dark orbs and the skills weren't up, so I died. With both masks dropping on previous turns, I decided to stone to continue, with the 3rd mask dropping. Some luck.

    The big bummer came at Neptune when I failed to OHKO him due to a bad board setup (my fault). Instinctively I stoned but then I realized that there's no way I could complete since I can't get back to 16x before getting killed. So there goes 2 stones and 3 mystic masks.

    Anyway, disaster could have been averted had I been more careful. Lesson learned is that 1) don't get too overconfident, 2) bring Big Flamie, and 3) you get one shot at the boss!

    Currently running a Chinese God team, but recently rolled meta and looking to build up some friends so I can switch! My Meta is still low level, but if any meta-users have extra room on their list, i'll get mine up there soon!

    Yeah, I frequently hit 10+ combos before neptune while farming ooh and can never do anything about it. However, I really disagree that you're stoning on OOH, even with 2 masks. You'd be better off using that stone to replenish stamina and get another 5+ runs in.

    RE: Dark Metatron Team Building

    I totally agree with you. It was a spur of the moment thing brought on by several weeks of pent up frustration of not getting mask drops, even on event weeks, but that's an off-topic discussion. :)

    RE: Dark Metatron Team Building

    I would *happily* trade a stone for 2 mystic masks...but to each his own.

    and yes, in ooh you have to be a little bit careful, but honestly what you described has only happened to me once in a couple hundred runs (dying on neptune). I've never died to a mystic mask, as you can easily break their def even without dark orbs...but I can imagine it happening with a really unlucky 3 turns of orbs.

    one thing I find that really helps reliability, is to use sasuke...so that you always know you will have your green orbs, and you even have a really solid chance of ohko-ing neptune, even without king flamie.

    Damn, I had no luck with tamadras in the 5 metal dragon runs i did yesterday. But I refuse to use the PAL Machine without a good event or spent stones on metal dragons without 2x Kings.
    Fortunatly there will be an event starting tomorrow! :D

    RE: Dark Metatron Team Building

    I've seen a lot of people awakening their Dark Metatrons, keep it up! Mine is at 3 right now, those little guys are pretty slippery.

    Dark Meta is one of the best uses of tamadoras, since your chance of pulling more in the REM, even if you IAP heavily, are really low...and his skills are very useful, especially the Skill+. -4 turns makes a huge difference for all of the 12-17 skill cooldowns that sometimes we have to stall for.

    Also worth mentioning, 2 fully awakened Metas + Satan = 70% dark damage increase if you match a row of black orbs. nothing to scoff, especially in cases where you have to match 5 anyway for a mass attack, or after a hanzo/gryps convert where you have a board mostly filled with dark orbs and can't realistically split them all up into groups of 3.

    I will be adding awoken skills to the guide soon, once we have some actual game experience with them.

    Also, if you run any of the descends in this coming even with your Dark Meta team, please post about it here. I'd love to expand the dungeon strategy section, and I'd love contributions from all of you. thanks!

    Yup! no real use for 2 of them, and more powerful to have the awakened skills.

    I was just wondering if they would ever push out the EVA Collab dungeon? The eva series is full of attacker types and some of them seem very promising.

    RE: Dark Metatron Team Building

    I picked up 2 Gryps in the last Godfest, as well as a Sasuke in about 30 rolls. :D The funny thing is that I was rolling for I&I for the cuteness factor and never expected to pick up the two monsters that I could really use for my D Meta team. The REM works in devious ways.
