    What is everyone using in the Yamatsumi Tournament? All attributes with a potential bind clear and defense break/poison/true damage is killing me.

    Hmm I tried my Krishna team with Jize for the predra/coverage but we haven't had insect dragons forever so Krishna isn't skilled so it requires lotsa luck but hitting the 40m damage is easy.

    Or Tsubaki with Jize for a smooth run but I won't hit the 40m. Though this too would require at least two red orbs leftover after those goshdarn Jammers.

    All I need is to make it into the top 10 though. I'm just looking to finish off my regular quests.

    Shivagon can do well as long as you can fill the colors with orb changers. Last slot should be Rodin/rodin tamazo.

    119k after just a couple runs with Urd/Antares/Ares/Rodin

    I think ideal is either Aizen or A.Anubis with 1 True Damage SI and 5 Bi color dark orb changes. Go for a monstrous average combo.

    x2 on shivadragon. My best score- 106k has come with an absolute damage sub. I ran Urd/Minerva/ Set/ Lucifer. I tried Rodin to avoid the penalty and he was about 1k shy of that on a similar run due to taking more time.

    I used old man yamamoto with revo minerva^RGY/Urd/RG Antares/Rodin. Got 120k. Took a couple of shots to get it right but just went for speed pretty much. Pretty sure the crown hunters are using a dios team like @ViewtifulGene did.

    I think they were all A.Anubis with dual orb changers inherited all over the place. You could get close to a 10 combo average that way.

    1 luci for true damage.
    Mantastic has a 131k JP run from somebody posted on his page, illustratively.

    9.7 combos, 156 seconds.
    1 natural solve, 1 laser, the rest board change solves.

    -----

    117k with shrugs no inherit Aizen with a Lilith, in 4 attempts, and I'm out, unless that falls from 5 percent out of 10, in which case, eh, I suppose I'll retry. Arena, despite rng, gets overly familiar. And we're sort of competing. Kinda.

    Used the column cyber dragon as f1 insurance and fire coverage, as who knows what will jammer, though good run didn't need it for less animation time. Cyber dragon finally finds a temporary home.

    Could 120 it with some velocity effort, not too sure about the ceiling after that. Would have to get frenetic or play to infinity and beyond retries for variance lucky nonsense.

    I think I'm going to try my Tsubaki team with Ilm in one slot and hope I A: don't scrub on floor 1 as I usually do, and B: get a freebie turn where I have enough orbs to proc her LS without an active. The lack of haste will save me a second on Ilms turn who will also net me that 40m boss burst for some more points.

    Right now I'm sitting at 104 with Tsubaki/Tsubaki/Tsubaki/Ame/Jize/Tsubaki

    most crown hunters are anubis with lots of bicolor. dios is too rng heavy i believe.

    I had five different teams before I settled with Ilm Minerva for speed:

    - Dios / Sasuke (No Leeza) / Tengu (Osiris) / ROdin / Masumune (Marine Rider) / Dios
    Failed so hard with this. Couldn't damage cap, and heart trolled for days.

    - Aizen
    115k with ease within two attempts.

    - Leilan / FG Leilan / A.Freyr / A.Leilan / Tengu(Roots) / Tifa
    Best attempt was Avg Combo of 11.2, time @ 120s, and Max Damage at 63m.
    121k. Still not good enough for crown.

    - Leilan / FG Leilan / A.Freyr / Leilan / Tengu(Roots) / R.Minerva
    8.3 Avg Combo, 152s, and Damage Cap at 42m/
    122.2k. Still not good enough >_<. Super consistent though in hitting 115-120k+ if you can speed solve tricolors with ease.

    Final build: IlmNerva
    - Minerva / FG Leilan / A.Leilan / A.Freyr / Tengu(Roots) / Ilm
    6.5, 176.6s, and 82m damage.
    125.802. Maybe if I didnt bring true damage and poison instead, and just let 0-1 combo tank my avg combo by a bit, maybe crown. I'll try again later when stam regenerates.

    Hmmm I can do something pretty close to this. Jize instead of Tengu, hoping for enough SBs on the team. Already have the Leilans ready. The Freyr boost is pointless if you more than doubled the max damage for points. Could maybe find an R/B that has a enough SBs if it's a prob or just use Ame for floor 3s bind again.

    To be clear I don't have Aizen, but happy for all the 120k+ers who do.

    Leilan, Leilan, Rodin, leaves me needing blue coverage with two SBRs to get Rodin up by PreDra. Only R/B or B/R subs that I have that fit the bill are Claymore and Urd. Urd is a dead active but Claymore might work, switch to Red+Spike for Ilm, Rodin and A.Leilan and the time cost of using an active...

    keep in mind you have sbr badge / sb badge. Aizen was there to show off. anything that is blue and fills two sbs is good enough for my build. pfp is in the results thread if you want to see plusses / time / avg combos btw.

    What's with posion this time around? Every other ranking it's been a laser it seemed? I got 112920 with Vishnu, 8.9%. I thought the idea was the time saved with true damage out weighed the pentalty. Did they increase the pentaly?

    Not for me, previous best placing was 30.6th percentile. So close but so far from the SB badge

    Used Urd after getting skill locked with Claymore (whoops). First successful run (no whiffs) got me 107k but did require me to use Minerva to proc LS. I think if I can make it through without using Minerva and having the bind hit a non-essential/bind resist I'll break 115k for my 10% lock in.
