    This is a guide to the next Unholy Tower quest "The Unholy Tower -Dark Side-".
    500px-Sp_quest_banner_800012.png
    Oct 21 19:00PST - Oct 31 18:59PST

    You MUST have completed "The Unholy Tower" before unlocking this. I've made a guide so you can take at look at it here:
    http://www.bravefrontierforum.net/threads/the-unholy-tower-guide.28852/

    MAJOR changes have been made to this quest since its last release making it EXTREMELY DIFFICULT. It's difficulty is not as hard as the Crusade quests but it is still quite difficult because of the changes. I'll start by stating all the changes made.

    Changes Since Last Release:
    * Estia has a high crit resistance
    * Estia is much stronger with Def and Att Buffs
    * Gold Coins can now be obtained in this dungeon (Sells for 2.5k Zel)
    * Gold Ingots can now be obtained in this dungeon (Sells for 150k Zel)
    * Prized Jewels can now be obtained in this dungeon (Sells for 200k Zel)
    * Totems, Idols, Nymphs, Gods (Elemental), Crystals, and Burst Frogs can now be captured in this dungeon!
    * Much more difficult

    Recommended Squads:
    Mono Squads:
    Mono Squads once again because of the Seals for extra defense. Estia is not as easy as Xenon was so be prepared to use some Seals and bring revives for this boss since she hits like a truck. Premium healers are EXTREMELY suggested for this and running a Dark Mono squad is just suicide. Premium Healers are highly suggested since Estia's attack pattern changes up quite alot (I had to get help from Brave Frontier Wiki since it was difficult for me to identify her attack patterns) so Healing and Defense is essential. Bringing a Light squad will almost garentee your loss if you encounter Estia since her damage is already high enough without the extra 50% elemental advantage.

    Boss Squads:
    Boss Squads are pretty self explanatory but i'll explain what they are here just in case new players dont know what they are.
    A Boss Squad is a squad that follows this format:
    Grah/Lily/Damage reduction Lead (Can be a Rainbow unit lead if there are 5 units with unique elements in the squad)
    Damage Migator (Oulu, Elimo, and Darvanshel)
    Damage Dealer (Any unit that deals a large amount of damage with quick BB fill. Lilith is the most common and suggested)
    Premium Healer (Well for healing...)
    Buffer/Second Damage dealer/Status negation unit (Self explanatory)
    Grah/Lily/Damage reduction FRIEND Lead
    Ok, a Boss squad is my MOST SUGGESTED SQUAD to bring to fight against this quest since encountering Estia will make it infinitely more difficult. Spamming your Damage Migation is important since she hits so hard and you can sacrifice your 5th unit that is supposed to be a Buffer/Second Damage Dealer/ Status Negation with a 2nd Damage Migator. The goal for defeating Estia is to slowly wear her health down until it is 0%. Healing every turn is important too since it's unpredictable when she will decide to spam her AoE BB attack.


    I WILL NOT BE GOING THROUGH ALL LEVELS I WILL ONLY TALK ABOUT THE GENERAL POWER OF ESTIA AND HER POWER ON THE FINAL FLOOR.

    Estia
    Monster_ills_anime_87600100.gif :light:
    Floor 101-180

    Important Notes:
    * Estia can cause Paralysis
    * Estia has an insanely low capture rate on Lvls 1-3, Extremely low capture rate on Lvls 4-7, and low capture rates on lvls 8-10
    * Estia has a powerful AoE BB attack which can be spammed as much as 4 times in a single turn
    * Estia can inflict Poison
    * Estia can inflict Weaken
    * Estia can inflict Injury
    * Estia can inflict Curse


    Floor 181-190
    * Estia will heal for 50% of her HP back after her HP gets dropped to 0% for the first time
    * Estia will gain Att and Def Buffs at 50%
    * Estia can inflict Poison
    * Estia can inflict Weaken
    * Estia can inflict Injury
    * Estia can inflict Curse
    * Estia can cause Paralysis

    Floor 191-200
    ALL COMMON MONSTERS MAY HAVE BUFFS ON THEM MAKING COMMON BATTLES DIFFICULT AND LONG

    End Boss will either be Estia, Garroter Shida and 2x Zahhak, or Death God Lodaga and 2x Memetes

    Estia will appear in her strongest form on this level and can appear as much as 4 times.
    Estia will have 5 BB attacks:
    Cursed Blood - Estia will recover 50% of her Max HP when reaching 25% HP and gains a Resurrection buff which will revive her with 50% of her HP.
    Brutal Blow - Single Target attack that will deal MASSIVE damage
    Venomous Strike - Single Target attack that can be spammed and deal LARGE amount of damage and may apply Poison
    Brutal Rampage - AoE Attack that will deal MASSIVE damage to your units
    Venomous Scourge - AoE Attack that will deal MASSIVE damage to your units and may apply Poison

    * Estia will gain Att and Def Buffs at 50%
    * Estia can inflict Poison
    * Estia can inflict Weaken
    * Estia can inflict Injury
    * Estia can inflict Curse
    * Estia can cause Paralysis



    What a boring looking guide. Well I hope that it still helps you guys if you decide to complete all 100 floors :D
    PM me or Comment if you need any help or questions and dont be shy, I dont bite. Hard.

    Not that i know of. So far i havent been able to inflict any status on her so i would say no sadly. However, i have not tried poison yet so she MIGHT be able to get poisoned

    Great guide SingSong :D yea i kinda figured she was stronger then before, but damn not that strong lol.. Another quick question, Xenon & Estia Prologue, last stage should i bring a def ignore unit cause it seems I'm hitting 1's when they're health is about 35% or lower.. yes it was my first run so i was unaware of this..

    For other peoples reference. [​IMG] Squad I used to clear with no problems at all. Pretty much the 'boss squad' mentioned. Grah leader is exceptionally handy.

    Sorry for a small error! I forgot Estia was a light element instead of a dark but i've made changes and fixed my mistakes. Once again sorry to anyone who went in with a dark mono squad!

    Yep She has definitely been buffed to take down even the Op 6* we have right now.
    Darvenshell or Oulu Recommended.
    If you can the same method to take her down before will probably still work.
    Get her hp close to half as much as possible with out activating her ultimate and buffs and 1 shot her from there.
    That`s what I did

    My recommended team (all SBB10) :D
    Crossed 4 Estia, just lost Uda once cause got fire focused

    When I spam my SBBs first turn, she gets just over 50% :)
    Second turn is the kill.

    Worked for the 3 first, the last got left with like 3k HP on second turn XD

    So I checked on how to take her down but unfortunately, I only got Oulu but not Grah (well I have a Grah friend anyway).
    Unit's squad is setup like this:

    Oulu SBB5 lead
    Grah Friend
    Lodin for BB refill (SBB4)
    Raydn for spark and deff ignore buff (SBB3)
    Zelban for Def buff and SBB dmg (SBB3)
    Rashil for heal (SBB3)

    as you can see, I don't have enough dmg dealers atm. What do you suggest with this squad setup?
    I have these notable units like elza, luther (6* no SBB yet, currently working on it), kagasutchi, dilma SBB1, ronel (working on SBB), lunaris (got her recently, 5*), Kikuri SBB5, Signas (same as lunaris, 4*), Sodis (recently 6*) and Bran (getting him to 6* atm)
