    Just now getting around to trying to clear this and forgot what skills are necessary/good to have for it, other than the obvious stuff of course. Is this the one where Fenrir is a good inherit or is there any other random stuff like that?

    Alt Arena, Alt Bipolar Goddess?
    You will need:
    1. At least two Fujin so that you wont' be screwed when you face Starling and Sopdet in the same run
    2. Depends on your team's healing capability, you may or may not need awoken bind clear of >5 turns
    3. Full poison resist. Blind and Jammer aren't necessary though full Jammer resist is a big help on Hera-Beorc
    3. To be able to tank Goemon's preemptive strike of 150k+
    4. Balanced Killer for Hashihime
    5. Dedicated God Killer sub for the Metatron and Kali

    You don't need Fenrir assist because there's no poison skyfall

    these very much depend on the team though, as a caveat. some teams can spike through Hashi naturally, if you arent based on light or dark damage she's honestly not bad, and you can alternatively carry a delay to get past the shield. ive been tooling around AA with lightning and with a lightning assist, the three turns delay gets me two hits past the shield, plus an edward spike if needed.

    same goes for meta and kali. if your team hits hard (think the 324-400+x mults with 7c subs, or you bring a big spike like the wise dragons/jewel princesses) bringing a godkiller is less necessary.

    Cool thanks for the info. Seems like I can cover everything except Hashihime. Is just one regular balanced killer enough or would it also be worthwhile to do latents as well? Since I assume "dedicated god killer" means regular god killer+latents but is that also necessary for Hashi if my team's damage isn't on the high end?

    It should be enough to put a hakuryu equip on a triple 7c card to punch through him.
    I also don't think you really need two fujin since starling and sopdet in the same run is rather rare

    Yeah Hakuryu is what I was thinking, or Ciel's equip form. Choice between getting to 100% jammer resist or having a much more useful AS...
    Don't have a good way to slot a triple 7c onto my team unless I give up a VDP or tape/cloud resist but I have a sub with two 7c's and tpa's so I can just use that. Unless cloud/tape resist isn't really useful in this?

    Neither tape nor cloud are really necessary for aa1 vdp isn't necessary either (onlu one of the heras has a void shield) having jammer, poison and blind resist and being able to clear awoken binds is all you really need as long as you can deal enough damage and take some hurt.
    AA1 isn't really that hard by modern standards not exactly a walk in the part either but team building is easier than in the other arenas.

    Yeah I got in a couple runs and it doesn't seem that bad. Died on LMeta on my first run b/c I knocked her into her rage zone on the first turn by accident without even using a boost and died on my second to Camael b/c I got a tpa skyfall when I had been trying to avoid matching my primary atb. Got Hashi on my first run too and was able to handle him so it feels like it's just a matter of time now.

    But when you only have one Fujin and met Starling and Sopdet... rip 99 stamina

    Not for my team apparently lol. I just cleared it and had both in my run and only one Fujin. After I popped it on Starling I just stalled a bunch of turns before the Sop floor, though that's def team specific.

    As a side note, Thancred (if you have him) has a low(ish) active damage absorb void and has triple Balance-Killer. Not really sure if you'd use him but it's an option.
