Auto-Battle Party[edit]

Explanation[edit]

  • Almost all of the demons in this node are weak to Light. The goal is to go first, and get your demons to spam Hama to get extra press turns and easily kill the demons. They all need the Ward set because without it, they will get statused when it's the enemy's turn to act. There's a timer of 3 turns per wave that you need to hit, and the timer for the last wave is a lot shorter due to Lucifer being a threat with Morning Star and Megidolaon spam.

Demons:

  • Sleipnir is used because of innate Light Boost + Speedster as well as access to Mahamaon.
  • Horus is used because of high Agility + Light Boost on awakening.
  • Sandalphon is used because of Null Dark that saves us a Resist Dark transfer on Horus, as well as having access to Hamadyne and Hamamaon.
  • Mermaid is used because she's the most budget Infinite Chakra user - Tsukuyomi/Prometheus are too slow and do not have two free slots for Light magic.

Example Party[edit]

Sleipnir.jpg Sleipnir ArchPurple.png Horus.jpg Horus ArchPurple.png Mermaid.jpg Mermaid ArchRed.png Sandalphon.jpg Sandalphon
Resist Fire Hama Hamaon Light Boost
Hama Mahama Hama
  • Battle Speed should be 17,000+. MATK should be 1,100+.
  • Light Boost can be dropped if you feel that you have enough MATK to kill the waves within 3 turns without dying. Alternatively, take Light Boost if you're lacking in damage.
  • Alternatives include: Red Kushinada, Red Feng Huang, Purple Kresnik, Red Lailah
  • Brands should be Divine + Ward, prioritize MATK then Speed. You can take Hama instead of Hamaon on Mermaid if you run Spell Brands.

Auto-Battle Team[edit]

Explanation[edit]

The party goes like this:

Speedster + Debuffer DPS Phys Null/Repel/Drain or High Phys Evasion Healer
Any Demon Any Demon Any Demon Any Demon

or

DPS DPS DPS Healer
Any Demon Any Demon Any Demon Any Demon
  • Speedster + Debuffer: Must have Speedster, Makarakarn, and Tarunda. Makarakarn is required to prevent Titania from wiping your party with magic, and helps reduce the number of turns Metatron gets by repelling Purgatory/Holy Wrath.
  • DPS: Must have an AoE, preferably Physical or Dark. Dark magic as Metatron is resistant to everything but Dark, and the Horus in the first two waves is weak to Dark. Physical DPS will get extra turns for the party whenever it crits, which is why AoE w/ acc is recommended to raise the chances of getting a single crit.
  • Phys Null/Evasion: Treat as a DPS. If Phys Null/Repel/Drain, it will stop the Hanuman/Orochi from using their AoE phys which hurts. If Phys Evasion, it'll lose them turns.
  • Healer: Must have Mediarama, other slot is for Diarama + Resists. Diarama is used as if you run any Phys Null/Repel/Drain, the enemies will regular attack a target, and the auto AI will heal that targeted ally up.

As for brands:

  • Speedster - Divine + Ward/Speed (Speed, HP, Phys Evasion)
  • Magic DPS - Divine + Ward (MATK, HP, Speed, Phys Evasion)
  • Phys DPS - War + Ward (PATK, ACC)
  • Healer - Divine + Ward (Recovery, HP, MATK, Speed, Phys Evasion)

Demons:

  • Fenrir: Speedster for getting your party's battle speed up to the required amount. Makarakarn is required to prevent Titania from wiping your party with magic, and helps reduce the number of turns Metatron gets by repelling Purgatory/Holy Wrath.
  • Pazuzu: Nulls Force/Dark/Light and heals. The force null loses turns for Hanuman when it uses Mazanma, and Light/Dark Null works wonders against Metatron after it blasts through the first Makarakarn.
  • Feng Huang: A speedier option than Pazuzu as a healer without any relevant Nulls and low HP. However, it can have way higher evasion + crit resistance which helps if you have trouble with the first two waves.
  • Pallas Athena: A good Physical DPS that comes with Mana Aid. Basically, a "budget" Yoshitsune.
  • Ose: Phys Null and Hades Blast.
  • Rangda: Phys Repel and Mudodyne

Makarakarn Hades Blast Resist Elec Resist Ice
Tarunda Phys Boost Mudo Diarama


  • Battle Speed needs to be 18,700+. If you cannot hit the battle speed, use a Purple Beelzebub for initial Makara Shift. Transfer Diarama for Beelzebub, and Mamudo + Diarama for Prometheus.
  • Templar Dragon helps a lot until you can get to a stable point with farming.
  • If you have excess skill points and free slots, transfer Samrecarm.

Strategy (Manual Play)[edit]

  • 1st wave - Kill order is Hanuman > Orochi > Horus. Hanuman will start off the fight always with Vorpal Blade (unless you have two nulls/repels/drains), and will start using it if the only one alive. Horus will just spam Diarama for 450, it's not a lot.
  • 2nd wave - If you have Makarakarn or an Elec Null/Drain/Repel, Titania will use Makajamaon. You can exploit that if playing manual - kill order should be Titania > Orochi > Horus.
  • 3rd wave - Metatron is really easy compared to the waves before, just outlast it.

Auto Party[edit]

Explanation[edit]

  • The demons here are all weak to Dark, hence the usage of demons that are Dark magic users. Enemies here tend to heal, and due to Sphinx's Tetra Shift, phys attackers aren't very reliable.
  • Garuda makes this a lot easier due to having Repel Fire and Null Force, both elements that Quetzalcoatl uses.
  • Pazuzu is a lot tankier of an option than Feng Huang, and boasts multiple nulls to prevent Sphinx's Mahamaon / Quetzalcoatl's Mazandyne.
  • Other two slots are for Dark DPS.

Example Party[edit]

Fire Repel + Wind Null Healer Dark DPS Dark DPS
Garuda.jpg Garuda ArchTeal.png Pazuzu.jpg Pazuzu ArchPurple.png Beelzebub.jpg Beelzebub Alice.jpg Alice
Mudo Resist Ice Mudo Mudo
Diarama Dark Boost

Dark DPS options include: Alice, Anubis, Beelzebub, Rangda

Healer alternative is Feng Huang.

Divine + at least 1 Ward set for Sarasvati to use Silent Prayer.
