    As the surrounding starts to darken, the feeling gives a chill of a very festive celebration coming. Come and celebrate the Halloween in Grand Gaia!
    Halloween Dungeon: Hellborn Nightmare


    • Lv1 - The Path Less Travelled
    The lands begin to darken and covered in shadow. A mysterious aura drawing the curious and the timid alike.
    Enemy encounters:
    -Skeleton
    -Pumburkiny (it's a burny but more cyot)
    -Shida for a miniboss
    Boss:
    [​IMG]

    Memetes
    This is Leon level of easiness. Most teams should have no problem one turn killing him.
    • Lv2 - Demented Trails
    Evil descends into the darkened lands, haunting the timid, assaulting the unwary.
    Enemy encounters:
    -Skeleton
    -Skeleton King
    -Medusa
    -Pumburkiny
    -King Gloomy
    -Orthos
    -Shida/Vampire for a miniboss
    Boss:
    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Hell King Hades, Memetes x2
    Another piss-easy boss fight. Hell king hades might not get rekt instantly, but you should be able to kill him without any troubles.

    • Lv3 - The Haunted Lands
    The lands fall into what seem like an eternal nightfall. From the twilight demons and monsters emerge..
    Enemy Encounters:
    -
    same as level 2 mostly
    -Garroter Shida/Lich as miniboss. Shida can catch you off guard. He's not too hard, but be careful.
    -Special Reward: 1x Heinous Dust (Required to craft Hallowed Skull) 1x Gem
    Boss:

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Death God Lodaga, Skull Lord x2
    This is where it begins to get harder. Your full team's BBs should instantly take out the skull lords. Lodaga actually hits surprisingly hard. However, like his previous evolutions, Lodaga is extremely squishy and will go down rather easily.

    • Lv4 - Demonic Vindication
    Note: DO NOT ENTER THIS LEVEL UNLESS YOU HAVE A FULL TEAM OF 6 STARS (excluding Semira, Ciara, Zelnite, Lily, Darvanshel, Miku, Deemo, and Tesla. They can be 5 star if you haven't had the opportunity to evolve them. I used a 5 star Zelnite myself.)
    Also, CRIT TEAMS DO NOT WORK AFTER THE FIRST TURN.
    Are you ready to face your fears and conquer the hellborn itself? Assist Ciara & Semira in defeating it!
    - Unit required to enter: Either Ciara or Semira
    - Special reward: 1x Evil Drop (required to craft Sinister Orb) 1x Gem
    Enemy Encounters:

    -Same as level 3
    -Excecutioner Shida as a miniboss. Shida is squishy, but he can do quite a bit of damage. Your best bet is to kill him quickly.
    Boss:
    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Hellborn Dilias, Skull Lord x1

    As far as I know, Skull Lord is not different from the ones in level 3. However, I may be wrong.
    -The Boss
    Oh, were you expecting another pushover boss? How cute, but it's WRONG! Dilias is an extremely hard fight. Gumi pulled a Xestia on us. Luckily, this is a guide!
    -The Units
    To beat this boss, bringing mitigation and a healer are highly recommended. However, it is possible to do without those. Here is the team I used to beat this battle with neither:
    - Lead Crusher God Uda w/ Medulla Gem
    -Legatus Melchio w/ Divine Stone (This kept him from dying)
    -Pumqueen Semira w/Mystic Lantern (She dies fast, but her high chance of status really helps with the skull lords not bothering you. The lantern gives her some more longevity.)
    -Holy Arms Douglas w/Guardian Cloak (but Bla, his SBB doesn't generate BC! Well, doug's SBB is essentially Spark Bait. The other units spark with him, and THEY generate all the BC.)
    -Goddess Axe Michele w/Medulla Gem (She boosts attack, coupled with melchio this lets you maximize the damage on dilias.)
    Suggested Friends:
    -Maxwell
    The creator himself boasts a mare leader skill that puts a ton of oomph into Melchio-boosted attacks. Also, his 33 hit SBB. I'm lovin' it.
    -Zelnite (which I used)
    If you're confident with your team, bring zelnite to get more cursed bones.
    The Fight:
    Hellborn Dilias casts a STBB called "Doorway to Hell" or something along those lines every turn multiple times.
    This does multiple thousands of damage to each unit and will cause Curse and Paralysis. It also has bb drain. Bring a status preventer unit like Tree, Melchio, Lunaris, or Ahvel, or bring stimulant and holy water. He also likes to spam it on the same unit, which is why I recommend you bring 3 revives and lots of cures. At 80%, 70%, 50%, 30%, 20%, 10%, and 5% HP, he will cast a BB called "Shield of Hell" or "Shield of Mist" or something along those likes. Dilias' health bar will then turn purple. Just grind him down with normal attacks at this point until the purple bar is depleted. Some of his regular health will have depleted, but not much. The main strategy is to whittle down his shield, then nuke him with your BB. For a boss, he's decently squishy, but this is a very formidable fight, especially when one of your units is handicapped.
    So, that's about it! Also, some info on the spheres:
    Halloween Dungeon: Hellborn Nightmare

    Craft unique exclusive sphere:
    [​IMG]


    Note: Deals extra normal attacks means adding 1 extra hit (with lower damage) for every hit dealt to the enemy. For example, if unit's attack is 5 hit, total hit will become 10. (only applies to normal attack)


    Be rewarded for your heroic deed while celebrating a spooky event! JOIN NOW!

    Are you kidding me? I'm halfway finished and i see this? God dammit all.

    Anyways, Dilias's chance to remove BB is 50% and he will never normal attack. He only casts his "Doorway to Hell" instead of auto attacking
    His HP thresholds for casting his sheilds are
    80%
    70%
    50%
    30%
    20%
    10%
    5%
    Add those in and youre good
    and he cant be hit by crits after the first turn

    I wonder if any rare Mobs can show up in stage 4, I didn't really see a reason to go back to that stage....

    Was fun though, Dillias had cool mechanics, nice to see something unique... He almost managed to beat my auto attacking squad

    Too bad once you get both orbs, there's little point in the dungeon.

    This was a surprise and a fun fight (read: challenging but not overwhelming). The rest of the dungeon is... meh. Oh well, free gem, two spheres, 5 gem to unlock Semira.

    The team I used:
    Darvanshel lead
    Maxwell
    Lilith
    Altri
    Ciara
    Whatever friend (typically grah)

    Guessing a general team comp that will likely work most of the time: (dmg mitigation is not necessary but it may save some items)
    Status null leader
    Unit with fast bb (ex: rickel, luther, lilith, uda, maxwell, etc.)
    Unit with fast bb (ex: rickel, luther, lilith, uda, maxwell, etc.)
    Premium Healer
    Ciara/Semira (MANDATORY FOR LVL4)
    Best friend you can get out of the list....

    This dungeon wouldn't be hard if Dilias didn't have those shields

    Lilith is my only 6 star unit because at lvl 70 I have no cost for more :( Any chance of winning this with fully leveled 5 stars and 1 6 star? I tried it before and wasted all my items, got him down to like 1/2 health, but that damn added health shield thing fks me up. Don't want to waste gems but really want the spheres since I was lucky enough to draw Ciara. Even if I gem revived I would have no items so would get mopped again, not worth me spending 5 gems or some crap for one run either.

    I agree that it is possible, but I recommend that you level at least one more unit within the time frame to avoid gem usage.

    the spheres don't seem to be that good, maybe just for metal parades? they are status boost, so i don't see them replace medulla gems or even sacred jewels
