    I spent 448 saved stones across 2 accounts to not roll Nadeko or Araragi, so I might as well burn 1500 stamina to max-skill Kiss-Shot.



    This hastily assembled team is not intended as a strict guide but rather an example to help others assemble their own Kiss-Shot skill-up farming teams.

    The basic concept is to bring dual MA Scheat leads, include Kiss-Shot on your team, match water TPAs on F1 and F5, and match fire TPAs on F2, F3, and F4.

    Please share your own Kiss-Shot skill-up farming teams if you so desire!

    Cleared Reincarnated Rushana Descended 4/21/21

    I put together a Nadeko x NY Artemis lead swap co-op build that starts with Fasca in the lead slot of team A.

    Here's the build:

    [​IMG]
    Notes:

    F1: Start by transforming Fasca, Jurond, and Nadeko and popping the chibi Cian assist active on team A's NY Artemis for the lead swap. Match 2 sets of wood orbs.

    F2: Transform team B's Jurond and Amlynea immediately then pop Kurama active to clear awoken bind and refresh the board. Match 2 sets of wood orbs.

    F3: Match VDP and 3+ separate wood orbs with team A, conserve wood orbs with team B, repeat. Pop Yama Tsukami equip (Ancient Dragonwood Cannon) on team B's NY Artemis in case of emergency.

    F4: Stall if necessary for Greed Egg equip on Kaede. Pop Greed Egg active. Match 2 sets of wood orbs.

    F5: Pop transformed Amlynea active as soon as possible to reduce number of spinners. Pop Nadeko active as soon as possible to clear ATK debuff. Match 2 sets of wood orbs and clear 9c combo shield. IMPORTANT: Make certain to clear F5 (Shiva) with team A to block the F6 lead swap preemptive.

    F6: Pop Fasca active if available to clear time buff and any remaining turns of unmatchable jammers. Match 2 sets of wood orbs.

    F7: Match VDP and 3+ separate wood orbs with team A until super resolve is down. Pop Yama Tsukami equip active on team B's NY Artemis and Nadeko active if available for kill shot at 50%.

    For my first clear, I had Kurz Weber (#5665) with Selica equip (#5125) on team A for 4 SB, 5 green OE, and a time debuff active, but needed more VDP damage on the final floor.

    The team shown above was what I used for my second clear and I ended up having to stall out the time debuff on F6, which got a little scary at times.

    I thought about putting together a Seina x R/B Suou team for this dungeon, but decided on a Nadeko x NY Artemis lead swap build to (1) block the lead swap preemptive on F6, (2) bring a counter the spinners on F5, (3) bring a single active (Kurama) to deal with both the awoken bind and super blind preemptives on F2, and (4) test how powerful Nadeko x NY Artemis can be on a 7x6 board. :>

    Mission accomplished!

    Cleared Hoppo Descended!-All Att. Req. 5/3/21

    Oof. It wasn't pretty, but I did it.

    [​IMG]

    I could definitely tweak the team for a second clear, but I think I'll be content with just the one clear for this descend's debut and maybe farm up a few dupes when it returns.

    Congrats ! I have given up for the premiere, will try again when we get the Karin Kanzuki buff ha ha.

    May I ask what website/app you use to display your full team + inherits + latents ? It looks like it could be very practical to me

    Yeah, I was able to eke out a clear with Seina x Seina in co-op with my alt. I imagine trying to clear it with a cross lead team would be nightmarish.

    Certainly!

    I use Valeria: https://mtkwock.github.io/Valeria/

    Thank you very much !

    Well I couldn't get my 7x6 swap strat working because F1 is already a nightmare, so yeah, that will wait until I don't need to swap on F1 ha ha

    I have a new Training Arena 2 farm team!

    [​IMG]

    Build inspired by this reddit thread: https://www.reddit.com/r/PuzzleAndDragons/comments/ni27ib/another_muzan_ta2_team/

    F1: Yozuru, swipe
    F2: Muzan, break second row
    F3: Reconnect second row
    F4: Nephthys, swipe
    F5: Muzan, break second row
    F6: Reconnect second row
    F7: Yozuru, swipe
    F8: Stall 1 turn, defense void assist on Chuan, match 3 dark
    F9: Muzan, break second row
    F10: Reconnect second row
    F11: Nephthys, swipe

    EDIT: Had to level Nepthys to 110 after getting KO'd on F5 by latent tamadras.

    EDIT#2: Okay, so it looks like 2 row matches will be necessary if Fama invades on F11, even with a Nephthys burst active.

    EDIT#3: Got KO'd by Nyar, so leveled Yozuru to 110 as well.

    THEORYCRAFTING!

    After pulling Nautilus on my alt earlier today (huzzah!), I'm trying to put together a wood team for farming AA4 for BrahmaDra invades.

    Here's what I have so far:

    [​IMG]
    If this team works well (or well enough), I'll probably unlock the last 2 latent slots on one of my SR Parvatis and throw a poison surge latent on her.

    I think this covers everything?

    Source: https://mantasticpad.com/2021/05/06/arenas-colosseum-woc-shura-mechanics-checklist/

    EDIT: If I find I have enough VDP damage on damage void floors, I can swap out the Ancient Dragonwood Cannon equip (#5191) for a Wild Boar Headgear equip (#6547) on SR Parvati on my alt.

    EDIT#2: If spinners turn out to be an issue, I may be able to figure out a way to shuffle teams around to swap out a sub for base Menoa on my main? Maybe?

    EDIT#3: If I need to add a tape equip, I should be able to make and squeeze in one of these equips on my alt:

    https://ilmina.com/#/CARD/4753

    https://ilmina.com/#/CARD/4909

    EDIT#4: Worst case scenario, I can farm Colo2 for a second Achilles on my main to make his shield equip:

    https://ilmina.com/#/CARD/5753

    Then I could leave it unskilled and throw it on my NY Artemis.
