    Had two tries so far first one with Yusuke and cotton odindra got me B-rank because I couldn't fua kaguya for like 5 turns and got the poison skyfall dragon so I had too one combo a couple turns since its like 25% chance of poison...

    Second try was with just cotton as sub and ended at the water absorb Dragons pre-emptive..

    I died on the poison sky fall dragon on the alt with Kami/Vraska.
    Success on the main with GNey/Vraska, but I didn't go all out, just curious about what a lazy run gets. Very mediocre C rank is the answer.

    EDIT: I didn't read the original post closely enough. I went full subs. If I get motivated, I may try to S-rank, but it seems like a lot of work.

    Ran with Yusuke/BCotton/ReIndra/blank/blank/Yusuke. Easy S rank first try. Was a little scared because I didn't have blues or Yusuke actives for Kali, but I had a Carat on Cotton and one shot Kali with 16x.

    Fio/Paolomu (Rathian weapon)/Fio (Rathian weapon) got me S-rank after failed a couple times because at the crucial moment the RNG gods didn't favor me and left me without either green or dark orbs. Paolomu one shot Kali with Fio board. Got Sopdet twice in a row. First time she killed me because, you guessed it, skyfall happened even with Rathian poison applied.

    On my other account I ran it with Fio/OdinDra/Fio and didn't account for OdinDra's rarity so I got an A rank. Not gonna run it again because I can live without another Tri-god Mask.

    What do you get for A/B ranks? I ran it for stone and got a king tama for C rank. I've accumulated 10+ tri masks at this point so I don't really need any more of those.

    Tri-god mask, Super Snow Globe, King Tamadra and +297 Shynee are the rewards for S, A, B and C rank respectively. If you got S-rank you got them all.
    A modified A1. Sopdet is there so be careful.
    About the same as A1 when it's not on 2x EXP. I got around 110k EXP.

    First run was *almost* perfect (as in 1 turn by floor) but Beelzebub came and rained over my party. I used Ed to convert his poison, no skyfall so only 1c and got him at like 5-10% to get another poison board.

    Sadly I did not bring any board change. Used Ed again to kill and had to rely on natural board and Cotton for the kill.

    Ended not too bad, thought it would make for a better score, but eh. Wish every S-Rank gave these rewards!

    Shoot, forgot it was a S-Rank challenge, and decided to stall 10 turns for the Skill lock stuff to go away....
    Cost me... :(



    Then I realized that i gave methe 297 +eggs I wanted :)
    I'm probably will still be running it to get S-Rank, but even if I didn't, I'd be fine as I still have 18 trimask (and no use for them) and over 10 snow globe... :D
    So it's not critical if I don't get them :)

    Took two runs. Got every poison skyfall possible and Osiris first run. Took 34 turns of the worst boards imaginable. 2nd try, no poisons, but Osiris again (thx), but only 25 turns. Stam thiefs.

    Doh!!!!!
    Completely forgot the 7x6 penalty....

    Also, it didn't help that I faced some fire spawn which absorbed fire for 5 turns... Had to wait for color shield to go away...

    FINALLY!!!!

    Despite having the worst RNG as skyfall, floors which got rid of my green or dark... and stupid floor which of course has to absorb green now:


    I did manage to finally S-Ranked this dungeon:


    I just needed to get back to S-rank root tactics: using Fio as lead!

    Failed the first time and got C rank because Sonia Gran's resolve prevented me from one-shotting her and I got stingy with my actives. Got S on my second attempt though.

    used d-ideal (nohime) uranus (diena), flamie, woodsie, bubblie, d-ideal for s-rank
    easy spawns except had to use nohime on beez.
    Used diena on kali for the easy kill. Luckily I had 3 dark orbs.
    woodsie got bound for like 9 turns and got skill locked mid-way through too.

    Just ran these for the first time last night. My Alt got stuck on the color absorb dragon a few turns.

    I don't need any more tri-masks and I am very happy with the +297 and King Tama.
