    sphinx's combo shield can diaf.

    - With no blue enemies in sight to leverage your elemental advantage, your best bet for highest team damage is on sphinx. Cameo will trump his fire element.

    - If you sweep every floor, frog girl will only be up for sphinx if you pop all of kaede, slyvie, and kaede.

    Attempt 1 - Learned the above the hard way having needed to pop kaede 2 after slyvie, giving me way too much green/hearts and killing my combo potential

    Attempt 2 - Fixed previous lesson, popped Kaedes prior so it was Sylvie alone for Sphinx. Slyvie proceeded to give me 4 goddamn green orbs. Flub the board and don't bother making a heart cross because "what's the point". Skyfall green proceeds to give me 13 total combos, still OHKO the guy at 16x + Cameo.

    Currently sitting at 127k (12%)

    Use Sylvie + Michael for a perfect (probably double row) bicolour board that's super easy to solve

    Source: 5.1% myself

    only did for the stone currently, but i swept every floor, just took way too much time to solve the boards cause i suck at heart cross. so only at 77%. will try for real later once i finish the descended challenge for the stone.

    Ugh this ranking is gross and wayyy too RNG based. I'm sitting at 5.9% @ 132,400. If I get top 10% I'll be content. Don't have a crown yet but not gonna chase it on this one, I'll wait for one shivadra can destroy!

    Sitting at 19% after one try. Havent looked to see if the rewards are worth chasing a top 10% yet.

    I just did it for the stone, but if others are trying to speed clear it, Cameo + a good board (tpas) can clear Sphinx without a heart cross.

    Thought 139k would hold, guess not, dropped to 0.9%. Meanwhile main is stuck at 136k. Had a really good run but then Sylvie decided 5 heart orbs should be enough. :(

    Need some help with this one; I'm getting 22% and I'm clearing every floor with 1 try but taking too long with heart crosses on every floor. Do you heart cross every floor? Just want top 15% for the SBR badge, any tips would be great from those of you who have gotten past that.

    7.2%, this thing is trollie as fuck. Increased chance at green skyfall orbs my ass. I swear this run has a built in penalty for green and heart orbs most runs.

    2nd run was 140k. A couple of 138ks, 130k, 122k, etc. Stoned. More 130ks. Got a 142k naisu! Then wee!



    10 runs in.

    I guess I spread my score too fast. Might have been beneficial to me to stay quiet, but I'll try to aim for 150k off of natural stamina which is impossible :rolleyes:

    Edit: wew i saw a 148k run today off discord.

    I was trying to be quick but it seems like you should prioritize high combos. 9.3%

    I got heart trolled so bad my first successful run so sitting at like 50% right now lololol. And then second run Sylvie gives me a brick of light and heart orbs but like 3 wood RIP

    I don't know how many times I want to attempt this dungeon, playing RNG at its own game isn't exactly my strong suit.

    If you were quick you can finish at 200s.
