    This Guide will be for the Unholy Tower Event that is making a return to Brave Frontier's vortex dungeons!

    Oct 21st 19:00 PST - Oct 31st 18:59 PST
    I found the need to create this guide since people have been complaining about changes made to this dungeon to make it more difficult so here you go! Also because I've been getting PMs to create guides and stop being a lazy motherf-

    THIS GUIDE WILL ONLY BE FOR THE UNHOLY TOWER. GUIDES FOR THE OTHER DUNGEONS WILL BE OUT SOON.

    Changes since last release:

    * Xenon IS NOW CAPTURABLE AT FLOOR 1-10
    * 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:

    Crit Squad:
    For once, a crit squad will not be the best choice for this unless it is a BB spam Crit hybrid team. The common monsters in the quest will be quite difficult and do have the capability to knock out your units individually each turn if focused on. Xenon will also appear in random intervals so Fujins may be required. Other than this, doing the usual routine of Buffing and then attacking should do the trick.
    Routine is:
    Crit buff, Other Buffs, All other BBs and SBBs that deal damage.
    Zebra Lead (Either Friend or Leader) will be required (Kind of obvious)

    Mono Squad:
    All Mono squads (other than Light) will be highly recommended and in my opinion, the best choice to bring to this event. Bringing Seals are highly recommended for extra defense even if you already have a Def Buffer. Xenon will deal large amounts of damage on floors 71-80, 81-90, and 91-100 so seals will be required for this (But it is possible to do without). Either a premium healer (Healing unit obtained from Rare Summon) will be suggested for keeping your health up since Xenon can cast his AoE Massive Damage BB attack 3 times in a single turn. Mono Light squads are highly unsuggested (its a word. I think) since Xenon is a Dark unit meaning it can deal 50% more damage to your units and even though you deal 50% more damage to him, you would probably have to kill him on your first turn to prevent that extra 50% damage to be a problem.

    Boss Squad (NEW):
    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
    The reason why the Boss Squad can be used here is because, Xenon is quite difficult even if he isnt as powerful as the Trail bosses or Trail of the Gods (Even Karl and Grah wasnt that fucking hard compared to this) but he is still quite intimidating. Keeping your HP above 70% is highly recommended and spamming your Damage Migator's BB and SBB will be highly recommended since his AoE BB attack becomes massive on Levels 81-90, and 91-100



    I WILL NOT BE GOING THROUGH ALL LEVELS of this dungeon but instead will be making this guide on what to expect generally (Also because i'm to lazy to talk about each level...)


    Floors 1 - 10, 11 - 20, 21 - 30, 31 - 40
    Levels 1 - 10, 11 - 20, and 21 - 30 require 15 energy to do (Each level not all together)
    Level 31 - 40 costs 20 energy
    Xenon has a chance to be encountered and captured WITH AN EXTREMELY LOW CHANCE in all of these levels
    Xenon.png
    Battles and Levels Xenon appears on:
    Floors 1-10:
    Xenon will appear on Battle 5 at 100% rate and can be captured but there is an EXTREMELY low chance.
    Floors 11-20:
    Xenon can appear on battles 2-9 on a low rate and a lower rate to capture
    Floors 21-30:
    Xenon can appear on batlles 2-9 but mostly found on floor 5 with a lower capture rate
    Floors 31-40:
    Xenon can appear on battles 2-9 and can be encountered more than once.
    The Xenon on this floor can be Poisoned (7,500 Dmg each turn [10%])


    Floors 41-50, 51-60, 61-70
    All levels will require 20 energy
    Royal Guard Xenon can be encountered and captured on all of these levels
    Royal Guard Xenon.png
    Battles and Levels Xenon appears on:
    Floors 41-50
    Xenon appears on battles 4 and 8 can can be captured at a low rate
    Floors 51-60
    Xenon can appear on any battle and can be encountered more than once. He has a low capture rate
    Floors 61-70
    This is bolded for a reason so read this carefully

    Xenon can appear on any battle and may appear more than once.
    Xenon will cast his BB "Ardent Soul Slash" every 3rd turn which can cause weakness and paralysis
    Xenon can be captured at a low rate but not as low as the previous stages

    Floors 71-80, 81-90
    Both levels will require 25 energy
    Sir Sancus Xenon can be encountered and captured on all of these levels with some scary upgrades
    Sir Sancus Xenon.png
    Xenon's attacks:
    Xenon has 3 BB attacks:
    Ardent Soul Slash - Single Target BB attack that can cause Injury and Weakness. Can be used more than once in a single turn.
    Soul Desecration - AoE BB attack that will deal MASSIVE damage to your units. Used randomly and can be used more than once in a single turn
    Soul Smite - Single Target BB attack that deals an INSANE amount of damage to your unit and can be used more than once in a single turn.

    Battles and Levels Xenon appears on:
    Floors 71-80
    Xenon can appear on each of the battles at a high chance and can be captured in a med chance.
    Floors 81-90
    Once again this is bolded for a reason so read through it carefully
    * Xenon can be encountered more than once and can be captured at a considerable rate
    * Xenon will cast Soul Smite upon the first turn
    * Xenon will cast Soul Desecration 3 times when his HP reaches 50%
    * Xenon may cast Soul Smite after the turn he uses his Soul Desecration 3 consecutive times

    Floor 91-100
    Xenon can be encountered at battle 10 and has a chance to be encountered on all floors beforehand with a considerably high rate of being captured
    Xenon can be encountered more than once in these levels.
    Xenon's Ardent Soul Slash can cause Paralysis and Injury.
    At dropping to 50%, Xenon will cast his AoE BB attack and 3 turns later, cast his AoE BB attack 3 consecutive times.
    Xenon can be poisoned and weakened.
    Xenon will start but using Soul Smite on his first turn
    Xenon has a HUGE chance to cast his AoE BB attack 3 consecutive times the turn after he uses his Soul Smite. Guarding is recommended.
    1 Gem will be rewarded after completion and the next dungeon will be Unlocked! (The Unholy Tower -Dark Side-)

    Xenon is immune to crit so i doubt bringing a crit squad would help.

    From floors 1-10,11-20,21-30,31-40,41-50 he is not crit immune.
    And he is Crit RESISTANT meaning you can still crit him but at an extremely low rate

    Can you give me a ballpark idea of how strong my squad would have to be to finish this?

    I'm pretty sure I have no chance :/

    5* Alyut, level 62ish
    4* Elza, max
    4* Michele, max
    4* Faris, max
    4* Tiara, about level 23 (I have a 6* tiara, so waiting to have enough squad cost to fit :()

    I did actually luckily get an Anima xenon already but I wanted to continue :/

    You can do levels:
    1-10, 11-20, 21-30, and MAYBE 31-40
    You can still capture him but i doubt you can go any farther than 41-50 at the moment. You have very good units with great potential (Except maybe Tiara)

    Oh, then I feel good about only failing at the 70+ mark haha. Thanks a lot, I really didn't know if I needed to keep blowing energy to try harder or if i just was not leveled enough yet :p

    I can beat using this team:
    Luther as lead (for Sparks)
    Michelle (ATK Boost)
    Lilith (ATKer)
    Oulu (Use DR on 1st turn)
    Grah/Melchio depending if it's Xenon/Estia
    Mare friend
    1st turn, use Oulu's SBB, then Grah's BB then Lilith's SBB then normal attack on other units, Xenon will probably be near half HP.
    2nd turn, all out. Attack using Oulu, Grah, SBB on Michelle, then Lilith, Mare, Luther.
    Whoo!!! Though, I only tried on Estia, not quite sure on Xenon...

    i got xenon but my teams not strong enough to go further than 71-80 i dont think. is this a decent place to farm evo units though? i've encountered a couple totems and an idol or two but im not certain on any encounter rates.

    I did get a totem or two I needed here. If you can't wait it's worth a shot in my opinion
