    Overall pretty simple ranking dungeon, no specific strategy needed, just one shot everything and pop the buff on the boss for top 5%. I'm at 4% now, should be at 1% if not for the 7 combo from skyfall on the last floor.

    I'm kind of surprised that people are not use to matching cross though.

    A lot of people dont have or play heart cross leads. Up until last weeks challenege set i hadnt. And i have 4 different heart cross leads in my box as it is.


    There was a lot of hand wringing on discord over the C9 and that should tell you how good the average player is at heart cross.

    Apparently I'm doing it wrong. I was going for speed instead of combo count. At 130k ish currently but I'll fix that now that I have an idea of what to do.

    Meh, never played a heart cross lead even though I have Myr (yes, I have her and never used her) so I'm not familiar enough with the patterns of how to make a heart cross without looking like a fumbling idiot. This is the first ranking dungeon that I'm doing just for the stone and I honestly don't care what placement I get.

    After something like 20 attempts, finally skyfalled into top 10%.

    Sitting at 56% now. Not horrible for someone who has never played kaede. Kind of pleased with myself. Had absolutely no green on starting board.

    I swear I've left floors at like 1% life in this dungeon more than any other in the history of the game. I've had at least 10 runs foiled due to leaving things 1-3%

    I like it when green skyfall clears out left over green orbs. I had 8 greens on a board after skyfall with 1 skyfall left and it drops a bunch of greens and clears me out.

    I suck at combos. I suck at crosses. I suck even more at combos and crosses without ample time extends

    I'll take my 11% and leave. I'm done with this ranking unless I need to throw stamina away

    I dont understand how any of you guys are doing this? I cant combo for shit with this heart cross. Even sweeping every flor i get suck with a poor time and i cant even break 40%. What am i doing wrong? I just dont understand this at all. Fuck this dungeon this is actively causing me stress.


    Im mever going to get that stupid fuck8ng quest. Its so bullshit that they lock one of the best badges behind goddamn ranking dungeons.

    I dont understand how people are getting all this skyfall help and killing without heartcrosses. None of this makes sense to me.

    Kaede hits hard enough without the cross. Combinations of 2-3 green matches / tpas (use skill if needed) while comboing out will clear all the floors.
