    Brace yourself, complains about fixed teams are incoming.
    Currently at 15.8% after using natural stamina, can see how a crown is possible but you know orb troll.

    I had 3 times where I had beautiful runs but then no fire orbs showed up for the boss and of course that's just lovely :\
    *sigh*
    Currently sitting at like 14.7% or something and I expect to drop. I'll try more later. I like fixed teams a lot.

    My only complaint is I feel like if I literally had 0.5s more move time my combo count would increase immensely. Need to get used to this move time.

    55% ish so far? Lol. Couldn't sleep, was up at like 2am, did a run for the free roll. Tried a couple more times this morning but just quit out of them all when blowing it midway through.

    Not that it would have held, just hilarious point gap.

    not sure about this ranking dungeon. seems just a rush to get enough combos with a heart match to clear each floor in a one shot. didn't use any skills, but I also seemed to run slow so didn't score very well.

    whats the strategy on this one?

    The goal is to make as many combos in as little time as possible. Key orbs are dark and fire as those subs have applicable killers.

    Currently at 3.9% with 144,740 after downing a bar of stam. Unfortunately it probably won't hold if we match the JP cutoff. :/

    Fudgicles. 3.7% Solved floor 3 in like 1 swipe and thought I missed a match, backtracked, but had it right. Thought I was holding a different color than I was. Cost me the run. Bleh, I'll do more later I guess.

    Yeah saw a 146.5 that was like 201 secs left but almost a 9c average. I was going for speed too.

    Well this one is a peach.

    Wild variance says a few rare times you get double fire matches four floors in a row for your dragon killer sub for no sensible reason and have prospects at a blitz-fast splendid run, though you should react to the luck and color/combo suitably to squeeze percentage out of it.

    And some runs you fire drought no matter what and lol. Screw you buddy.
    Even if you combo like a god you're playing at a brutal time-sucking deficit that hurts your score a lot.
    Might as well exit.

    Nothing to do for it but run it over and over and over until luck randomly aligns.
    While battling fatigue at keeping your skill consistently excellent through mediocre garbage random luck run after run.

    Some quality design right there.
    Hard pressed to care about crowning this one, though if you're in it and enjoying, all my best to you.

    I cleared it for the stone and got Yomi #3 for my efforts. At least I can have both split ults and Revo forms. I already have two Apocs, so I don't really care about running it anymore, unless I just have some spare stamina to burn.

    Best of luck to everyone who's chasing him, though!

    Sitting at 146,896 right now, 1.5%. JP crown cutoff was 145,640, but we do have one extra day. Hopefully this will hold for my first crown.

    On a sidenote, I really enjoyed this ranking dungeon for some reason. It was fun and relaxing to run through, just pure comboing. They usually infuriate me, and I've never even bothered to try to crown, just get my reward and get out. But this one I had a lot of fun with, so I hope I can crown it.

    With fixed team challenges at least you don't have to worry about team composition.

    Got to 14.5% on second run think I will call it quits here unless I get bored.
    Seems like one of the fairest ranking dungeons so far

    Before I read though all these posts, I thought it was a another “speed” one and cleared it first try at like 75%, lol. Definitely going in next time to combo like a MF’er.

    Main got Nerva (new!) and Alt got Creuse (new and set complete) so I can’t complain about those rolls.

    You should be safe. I don't think the extra day is going to matter. We were ahead of JP for Rikuu because people were able to prepare teams well in advance and just grind the entire week. JP is generally a higher cutoff and I don't think this one will be any different given that it's fixed team meaning there's no advantage for us.

    I've had a few more 141ish runs, but combos are way too low. Need a good skyfall run or a streak of good boards. Still so mad about my best run. Robbed myself of a good second or more.

    We've had higher cutoffs than JP based on extra days in fixed team dungeons, too. Horus, for example. That being said, I'm confident that high 146k will hold, even if it does get cut a little close.

    Best of luck getting there yourself. Just do the best you can and eventually the boards will align.
