This challenge is one of the most difficult challenges in the game. It requires you to defeat the three most powerful enemies in the game: Astor, Harbinger Ganon, and Calamity Ganon while at the same time defending an allied stronghold.
More so, healing items (apples) do not drop and it is time-limited. These are some tips and strategy guide in approaching this challenge effectively!
We suggest over-leveling at least 3 characters that are good at fighting Powerful Foes (duelist). Two of the characters will be responsible for defeating Astor and Harbinger Ganon while the third one is for protecting the Allied Stronghold. The fourth one is whoever you choose!
We also suggest being level 80 and above for each of the three characters.
Unit placement is key to this challenge. Two units must be responsible for Astor and Harbinger Ganon while the others are for protecting the Allied Stronghold.
Assign characters responsible for the top-half and bottom-half of the map where Astor and Harbinger Ganon are located respectively.
Defending the Allied Stronghold is very important because the timer only ticks down when there is a Powerful Foe in the Allied Stronghold. Whenever an enemy enters the Allied Stronghold, defeat them immediately.
We suggest using characters that are great against Powerful Foes like Link, Mipha, King Rhoam, and Sidon.
You may choose to use your fourth character to roam and pick-off enemies around the map in case they decide to attack the Allied Stronghold all at once. You may also use the fourth character to clear enemy Outposts around the map for extra loot.
Astor and Harbinger Ganon are locked behind a gated arena. To open the gate, you have to defeat a Powerful Foe.
Halfway through the fight with Astor or Harbinger Ganon, they will flee to another nearby location which is, once again, locked behind a gate. You have to defeat Powerful Foes near the gate to open the gate and finally defeat them.
Order is an important technique you have to use in this challenge. Always try to make it a point that all your units are constantly moving around the map.
Considering the non-existence of healing items on the battlefield, Mipha's special-attack is extremely useful because it heals allies caught in the waves. Reserve using her Special-Attacks when fighting Calamity Ganon at the final phase of the challenge!
We recommend that you stock up on elemental rods and apples before this challenge. The enemies here hit hard and they will chip away your health fast!
Also, some enemies in this challenge are elementals (Fire, Ice, and Electric) so you can use elemental rods to your advantage. Use them sparingly though as the Rods are extremely useful against Calamity Ganon at the end.
Since this challenge do not drop healing items, we suggest cooking recipes that promote survivability and increases movement speed:
|Survivability||Damage from Enemies -%
Recover Health Every 10 Seconds
|Movement Speed||Movement Speed +%|
If you are really stuck and at the end of your wits, we suggest setting the difficulty mode to Easy. Enemies are easier to defeat and they do not hit that hard in this difficulty so the problem with the time constraint and survivability may be solved.
Of course, you can always change the difficulty back afterward!
