    To do this quest, you MUST have obtained these two units and have them on the squad while doing this quest:
    Estia: Estia.png :light:
    Xenon: Xenon.png :dark:

    Bringing the Estia & Xenon UNIT will not work. Bringing an Estia/Xenon friend will also not work.

    There have been changes to make this dungeon a bit easier (I don't know why but sure) and i'll state them here

    Changes since last release:
    * 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!

    Recommended Squads:
    Crit Squads (UNSURE):
    I havent really done a run with a crit squad yet to see if there is crit resistance or not but we'll just assume that they can be hit by crits. Doing the usual routine of just Buffing and hitting as hard as you can will do and knock them out easily without breaking a sweat. You can start sweating when you cross your fingers to capture them.

    Mono Squads:
    Mono Squads are suggested once again but this time, Seals are optional. Mono Squad will just be used to knock them down easier and there are not important units you need to bring but bringing a Premium Healer is still suggested.

    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
    I'm not going to explain this just because i have already in my Unholy tower guides so just take a peek over there if you havent.

    This time i will be going through all the Stages since i'm not lazy this time :D (And because there are only 3 stages)

    Quest 1:
    Reminiscence
    Energy: 15
    EXP: 1,200
    Battles: 7
    Notable captureable unit: Miracle Bulb

    This quest is not difficult at all and is the easiest to do. The boss is not hard at all and there isn't really anything to be afraid of in this quest

    Quest 2:
    Lost Innocence
    Energy: 25
    EXP: 1,600
    Battles: 7
    Notable captureable unit: Miracle Bulb

    This quest is a bit more difficult than quest 1 but not by much. The boss is not difficult and there isn't much to be warry of in this quest

    Quest 3:
    Duo of Virtue
    Energy: 35
    EXP: 2,000
    Battles: 7
    Notable captureable units: Xenon&Estia, Miracle Bulb
    Rewards: 1 Gem
    Boss: Xenon&Estia
    Xenon & Estia.png :light:
    Notes:
    Xenon&Estia has 2 BB attacks:
    Counter Guard - Powerful AOE BB used every four turns. Guarding is optional since the damage isnt too high
    Glorious Strike - Powerful Single Target BB attack used quite often and can be spammed
    * Can be Poisoned
    * Can be Paralyzed
    * Can be Injured
    * Can Weakened
    * Gains a Def and Att buff at 25% HP
    * EXTREMELY LOW CHANCE TO CAPTURE Xenon&Estia
    * After Counter Guard is used, Xenon&Estia will gain 9999Def Buff for 1 turn
    * After Counter Guard is used, Xenon&Estia will gain Crit and Att Buff for 1 turn



    BAM LAST GUIDE FOR THIS EVENT.

    Impossible for you.
    Not because your squad is bad or anything but, you need both Xenon and Estia on your squad so i would replace Duel-SGX with Estia and Michele with Xenon. X&E cant be hit by crits so Duel-SGX is a bit useless here.

    @SingSong When you type Extremely low chance to capture does it mean its around Zebra's capture rate? 3%?
    Would love to have Xenon & Estia for collection even though I will most likely never use it.

    yeah, just bring xenon+estia and your 3 maxed squad, and it will be fine even your xenon and estia lv 1 and does nothing, xe prologue level 1 (15 energy) does drop crystal, totems and pots anyway good luck farming.

    I did it! Thanks SingSong, on my sixth try with only 5 minuts left to enter this event one more time and barley enough energy I captured them! And an anima for their type, yay! I didn't even have to evolve Xenon or Estia I just went in with high level 3*s and captured them. I can't believe I got Xenon, Estia, and Xenon&Estia in just two days! Great Guides man!
