Aw, I lost on my fifth fight in the Arena again!
I thought I might be able to get a five-win chain on Advanced difficulty, but I always lose in the end. What am I doing wrong?
A lot of people have the same problem. One minute they're sailing through and getting high scores, and then, right at the end, they suffer a defeat...causing their score to go down.
Hm... Maybe the last teams are just pretending to be Advanced, but they're really Superadvanced. Like they're desperate to keep us from winning...
I don't think that's likely. The ratings shown at the start tell you exactly how strong your opponents are.
Next time, if you're having a run of good scores, one thing that you might want to consider is switching to Intermediate midchain to try to make sure that you win every fight.
You'll face rivals from around the world in the Arena, so you won't get far if you field just any allies and hope for the best. Here are some tips for building a team that's ready to take on the Arena.
Put Bonus Allies on Your Team
There are bonus allies chosen for every season, and putting them on your team will improve your ability to get a good score. Whenever a bonus ally defeats an enemy, you'll gain an extra +12 to your score when you win. On top of that, bonus allies will start with HP+10 and Atk/Spd/Def/Res+4 boosts.
Max Out Growth
It's important to get your allies up to Lv. 40 and fill out all of their skill slots. Additionally, equipping skills and Sacred Seals that take a lot of SP to acquire will further increase your team's rating, letting them take on stronger opponents and earn a better score. Don't forget to equip them!
Make Sure It's the Right Season!
When you put a Legendary Hero in your team during a season that activates their effects, they will provide buffs to allies who have been bestowed blessings that match the season. Make sure you can take advantage of the current season when you're trying to build a strong team.
Don't Forget about Def/Res
During Arena battles, it's easier for your foes to respond to an attack than it is for them to initiate one. As such, we recommend that beginners build a team that focuses on strong Def and Res stats. If you include staff allies, you'll not only be able to heal, but you'll also have access to skills that can support your attacks, such as Gravity+ and Pain+.
