    Oh i didnt realize we were not friends anymore. I must have deleted you by mistake :(. I'll make space now and add you. And yeah I use her for arena 3. Mostly coop though, since my team HP is not enough to tank Lifive's premptive so solo if he shows up it auto loss. I have to give my puppet 5 red latents to tank it but im out of latents. I have cleared it a few times coop though, which for me even in coop its an accomplishment since I have only cleared arena 3 with Myr, Ronove and now Ceres, all in coop. Yet to have done it solo

    Id love to but i cant commit since i have been really busy lately. Maybe @nocutename and I can collaborate so I don't have to invest too much time, if @nocutename wants some help.

    Hi guys, I just pulled Osiris from the rank 250 egg machine and realized I had a ton of green tpa cards sitting around. These include:
    Vishnu
    Bartz
    Green Wee Jas
    AArtemis
    Sasuke
    2x Susano
    Phact
    Masamune
    Osiris
    Leeza
    Delgado
    Kushi
    Yoroichi
    What would my best team(s) be for green?

    @MisterDrgn

    I do have to agree with @Carlos R. Marti-Figueroa on putting a heart maker on the team. Heal back is so-so. You should take the team through Ultimate to find out the strengths and weaknesses.[/QUOTE]

    I like heart-makers on tank teams, but sadly I have no Perseus and my new Michael isn't gonna work on this team. So aside from Ishida...I dunno.

    I will definitely play through Ultimate. Actually I lack the patience for Arena, so Ultimate Endless is the main thing I do with new teams. Probably I should branch out.

    Don't worry if you don't have perseus. The strat for Ceres is burst to death anything you can't resist and stall actives back when you can resist if subsequent floors again contain scary spawns. In arena lifive is the worst for Ceres. In Ult endless, definitely shiva. You will need SDR on your Ishida to get past him unless you have a delay inherited somewhere that already has SDR.

    @Niteblooded I will not have any time for a few weeks. I need to put down this game and focus on life a bit. But I guess I can write something up after I have some time to play with her.

    You can lead with either Vishnu or Awoken Artemis whatever fits your play style better. Both are quite strong. If there were a ton of Balboa leads out there I would be tempted to say Artemis because that team pairing is really strong and you definitely can take advantage of TPA cards on it. Maybe try both.

    Whatever lead you choose...
    Artemis, Vishnu, Osiris, Kushi and Bartz/Susano

    You will want to replace Kushi and Susano when you get stronger cards though. They are good but more situational than desirable and of course their actives overlapping isn't a good thing. I just don't like the HP of the other cards. Bartz' HP is decent and his active is more desirable. The double SBR is nice too.

    Real life first! At one point I used to sacrifice many nights of sleep tweeking the guide making it better but in hind sight that was dumb.

    This is all volunteer work. No requirements. Besides it's probably better if people have 5min to answer a question anyway. ;)

    Thanks a lot! That was sort of similar to what I thought of, except with Susano instead of Kush and a friend Vishnu. How is a friend Vishnu for the 100% wood skyfall uptime?

    Vishnu definitely pairs up best with a friend Vishnu. It will be a bit of glass cannon team with not as much power as some but it should still be fun. Try to make some Balboa friends for dungeons you need more HP on and then use Artemis as your leader.

    I run a lot of Vishnu. It's pretty fun--easy to deal enormous amounts of damage. If you're gonna do serious stuff with it, you'll definitely want a bind clear (could be an inherit), and you'd probably want to inherit a damage shield active somewhere (mine's on Osiris 'cuz of the super short CD).

    EDIT: You can pair with Kaede friends, who are a lot easier to find. But pairing with Vishnu friends is more awesome, and don't you want to be more awesome?

    (Also running with a Kaede friend makes that effortless damage more effortful.)

    I attempted that one-shot challenge and made it up to Noah dragon. Could only survive a couple of hits as he kept taking away hearts and I ran out of actives. I think I really am going to buckle down and focus on the 5 remains dungeons I have left and then I am done. I am hoping to get that last quest but after many hours of brainstorming the dungeon and running it away too many times, I am losing interest. I don't want to have to run something 20 times to achieve a goal. This isn't life, it is supposed to be for fun. I like that this game is a nice distraction but it is becoming way too difficult that doesn't make it fun. I finally beat Dragon L+ and I should be ecstatic but I wasn't. The game is losing it appeal. But it is the longest game I have ever played so I thank Gungho for making it a fun experience.

    @Niteblooded - I am sorry but I really don't have another guide in me. I rarely used the leader so I don't feel comfortable attempting to tackle the guide.

    I'm sorry to hear that....

    It seem that I m even further away... So many missing quest, I can't managed to get a single crown... I can't even reach the top 10%.. :(

    It's a tough business for GH... on one side, to keep people interest, they need to produce stronger monsters... (which they do... maybe too powerful sometimes...); and on the other hand, to compensate, they also need to produce harder contest to give players a goal to pursue...
    It's very difficult, and some (myself included) thinks that the power creep of leader/subs grew too fast... which force GH to bring even tougher challenges... some ridiculously hard...

    I hear you; I do loose interest on time to times... but for me, having my wife continuing playing this game keeps bringing me back to it.
    I hope you'll come back to it; this game has a really nice player community! :)

    Thanks @kandjar I thought you made to 10% this round? I threw all my box resources at this one and used 3 stones which is a lot for me. Heck, my winning boss shot hinged on Marine Rider's active. Yes, a rider. I almost pii my SL2 Tengu for it just because I really wanted to complete the quest. But I ended up using MeiMei for haste to get Rider up on the last floor. It was truly annoying because each run there were a ton of things that could and did go wrong. I never had a run that swept every floor either (my poison always got bound) I think I made it in but until it is officially calculated you never know. Anyway, why I am writing all of this? I tried so many times to get to 10% in the past and was quite unsuccessful. But this time maybe. So your time will come. Trust me, I didn't do it on skills at all, this one was gimmicky.

    I understand why they make hard dungeons. This game is was all about the brainstorming but there is little discussion about that then there was when I first started. Now it is just watch a youtube and do it. I like to solo things and figure out boards on my own time. The other day, I had stamina and cooped Special Descended Rush for a few runs. It was actually fairly easy with Ilm team. But my comfort level was not there. I don't really enjoy farming Rogues either but I do because I want my max skilled prizes. I think this is because it took me so long to get to a farming descend point. I used to die so many times that it just put fear into me. I am not sure. So, while I will go outside my comfort zone, it isn't quite fun for me.

    I am not going anywhere but just decreasing my time in the game. I have a handful of dungeons that I want to do first and then I will scale back my time. I have been blessed with some great rolls over the past few months that have allowed me to get to this point. It will be a waste not to complete what I can.

    Anyone, I now have 4 SDR. Who is the best candidate? I don't like playing Myr so that is out. I switch between teams so much that it makes it hard for me to decide. I wish these were reusable.

    No worries! You have done plenty it was only a thought since so many were talking about her. Perhaps if there were a few requests than I may take a stab at it but after trying the team I'm honestly not even sure anything needs to be said. Tank what you can, burn what you cannot. That said I got my biggest accomplishment last night in this game...

    I BEAT MYR!!! (Mythical Plus)

    With Revo Ceres no less! It almost felt like cheating with that team. I had a wonky team where Gonia was only one with team synergy so she was the super star that got the kill shot. First try I almost beat it but Myr brought some game mechanics I never seen before and I didn't realize she had a soft count down (really should read up on dungeons). Second try I got orb starved on an early floor and didn't take it seriously enough. Third try, like butta! Though it does appear there is a small window of opportunity to snipe her and since I didn't study the dungeon I forgot where that was in between her skills but wow Revo Ceres has crap for damage and that was also part of the learning curve. I'm used to Parvati and Krishna so Ceres damage is like going from a sports car to a Prius. That Prius is safe though! Not sure I would have been able to do that dungeon without the reduced damage tanking ability. Thanks to @Kiyo for the Ceres.

    I now have finally joined all the rest of you and have my own Myr. You guys got it done a long time ago and with less current leads but still a big thing for me. Filthy casuals like me have lower goals. :hungry:

    I was too scared to try the ranking dungeon. I completed a bunch of normal dungeons to get magic stones. Almost all my rolls sucked though I did get Napoleon which I had no idea who it was when all I could see was the artwork. Best artwork I have ever seen for Napoleon since they always make him look goofy. May try him on my Krishna team.

    I'm sitting over here in the ranking dungeon blasting everything away with RevoParv and i still can't push past 18%, i don't understand how to do it faster, get less combos? :misc2:

    it'd be great if we could get one of these ranking dungeons without every damn floor having a pre-emptive to waste half of the allotted time directly, though, of course, that means both the more hardcore people will blast the score requirements higher, and that heart-cross leads would utterly dominate since you'd only have to make one on the first floor and ride it as long as possible. :awakening10::awakening10:

    Maybe have some shorter pre-emptives OR AT LEAST ONLY ONE PER FLOOR? that fkn dog floor. :misc1::misc1::misc1::misc2:

    I would've thought i'd be ranking higher since all i need for that predra floor is 2 tpa, enough hearts, & 4 combo

    Sadly no...
    I literally spent all my stam in the challenges... Monday through Wednesday: I did the one shot dungeon as soon as I reached 99 stam until I manage to clear it.... then I spend pretty much all my stam until Sunday (the only exception was STTD for which I used the stam available at the time) in the ranking dungeon... I only managed to reached 14.5%.... :| I got screwed more than half of the time by the binding on the third(?) floor... I also managed to screw myself with the stupid stress... failing to one shot some floor stupidly... bottom line: I didn't even reach the top 10%... sigh.... Probebly the best chance I'll ever get...

    Lol... I did the same thing... I used Dino Rider on my best runs :)

    I also debated py-ing some sub like Red Sonia (and somethig else... can't remember who...Maybe Saria...) ... but didn't do it. Maybe I should have...

    You know the irony... is the run who went the best, on the final floor, I got an insane # of unnecessary skyfall combos (> 10 total)... which wasn't enough to bumb my score up with combo... but was enough to cost me some precious seconds... :(

    Wow!!! Nice to hear!!! and if you did, then it was worth it :) This game is about grinding your way through victory, 3 stone to reach it, sometimes (especially on one-time dungeon/ranking) it's worth to do it.

    For me, I ended up rolling one time to many (and one time more than I originally plan) at the GF to get a third or 4th Perseus... :( I regretted it.
    My 5 stones would have been better spent replenishing my stamina to try to reach the to 10%....

    That's kind of why I think it may have been one of my only chance to get there...

    I kind of agree with you... I feel that it was ... in a way.. harder before... .
    As in: you had to plan more ahead before tackling a dungeon.
    Nowadays, many strong generic team can just go to the dungeon blind folded and deal with the problem as they come without having to plan too much.

    I was also kindof true before for teams lead by Ra, Horus or Sakuya... BUT.. .these team required very very specific subs AND insane skills; now, a lot more generic teams have emerged and can tackle hard content without too much sweat.. .
    In a way it's nice coz it's easier for the *common* people to play the game and succeed at it. At the same time, I really loved the time where I had to carefully plan my run browsing padx or padwikia (back them), figuring out what to do throughout the instance before even entering it...
    Well.. .time changes.. so did the game.. I still like it :p ... probably coz I invested so much personal time on it ;P

    +1

    That's the spirit ;-)
    I perso do the same.. until i roll someihing exciting which bring me back: lately, Acala :)


    If you really don't know; I would advice to keep them until you absolutely need them! (and you'll know when that'll happen)
    That said, if you do not wish keep to reserve some box space for them I would recommend in order:
    - subs with "haste" effect.; haste 2 are fantastic target for SDR but haste one are really good too.
    - then leads: SDR on lead is tremendously useful in coop mode... Also, it can attract more pal points...
    - any critical utility sub... but this usually falls in the first category as: you'll know when you'll need them :)

    Wouldn't that be nice :) Or if you couls stack them on a stupid sub which you would later feed to transfer to the proper one... (+egg style)

    You should always try them.. even if it s just for the stone; and like one of my friend always says: "I made it to the top 100%" ;-)
