Cooked to order! Adjusting teams to the dungeon.

Cooked to order! Adjusting teams to the dungeon.

So you can only cook 1 thing?

Almost every time when someone comes to ask anyone about team help, they always ask “what is the optimal setup/team” or “best team I can make.” I’m here to tell you that asking for that is like “I only know how to grill plain chicken breast with this entire chicken.” Dude, there’s chicken feet, the thighs, drumsticks EVERYTHING, why are you just stuck on plain grilled chicken breast? Even then, you can fry it or bake it.

My best dish

This is what I’d call my “best dish”, it’s something I would use to “Beat Bobby Flay”, or what I’d cook for my dogs on their birthday (They get steaks, if you’re wondering).

What it does:

  • Handles most things dungeons can throw at me,even going in blind, like Blind Taste Test challenges. Yomi’s inherit takes care of orb locks, Haku gives me a board change, Satsuki gets rid of hazard AND brings my skills back up faster.
  • Covers my weaknesses, like I can’t bake, so I’ll throw chocolate sauce on it. Much like Dark Metatron gives me a shield for my low HP team.

A Judge that hates your best dish

Here’s where this team will have challenges

Cloud City’s Scarlet BlazeĀ  7th Floor – Awoken Skills Invalid

Because we don’t have Awoken skills, there are very few skills that will be up to satisfy the judge’s palette (beat the dungeon.) Here is my information sheet from talking with the judge (looking at the PDX/PADguide info)

FloorNotes
27,054 Max damage hit, board changing attacks
30 Million Defense.
Leader Bind, 48,690 damage execute when <20% HP
Combo Shield, 1 turn enrage warning before execute
<50% enrage, Execute <5%

Knowing how the judge is, I now have to season to the judge’s palette (change my team to beat the dungeon)

I know that the judge’s palette would be easier to satisfy near the end once I satiated their need for a strong flavor profile to start, like a very strong kick to get their tastebuds going, and once there, it would be smooth sailing. So here is how I changed my best dish to serve to the judge to make them happy:

Inherit
Inherit Unit Name Blue Dragon Caller, Hydroguard Sonia Devious King Usurper, Sima YiAwoken Haku
Board Change, StallOrb Unlock, StallBoard ChangeStallingVS Nebradisk

Ultimately here is how it works

Leader Bind, 48,690 damage execute when <20% HPLeader Bind Immune Badge.
Combo Shield, 1 turn enrage warning before executeBoard change if needed
<50% enrage, Execute <5%Aizen or Board Change

Basically once I was able to stall successfully on floor 1 for a few turns (Nebradisk gives you 3 free turns to charge your skills, so you only need to stall for a few turns on floor 1, Jester Dragon lets me stall longer if I need to)

Understanding the judge is key to winning!

Again, getting hung up on “I can’t play X team because I don’t have Y” is like saying I can’t win this deep fry challenge because I’m only going to grill, even though there’s a deep fryer and all the ingredients to make some delicious fried chicken! Don’t get hung up on making “Optimal teams” or “The best team” focus on what your team can do, and what you can adjust to beat the dungeon!

  1. I did this dungeon with an off color sub since i do not have that badge. I used Aizen, Barbarra, Mito , Book Club Sleeping beauty, and I think Haku. I only stalled 1 turn since BC Sleeping beauty has a 4 turn CD. I did have to use some pys to skill her up. A bicolor board makes the combo absorb easy with the time extend badge.
