List of Contents
|Minimum Noponstone Rewards||3000 (B)|
|Maximum Noponstone Rewards||24,000|
|No. of Waves||2|
|Minimum Rank to Obtain Reward||A|
|How to Unlock|
Shulk's arts are scattered, so arrange them before tackling the trials. Remember that Spike Abilities disappear when an enemy is toppled. Avoid using Monado Arts except Buster. The goal of time attack challenges is to clear the challenge as fast as you can. Playing defensively will take a longer time, and thus decrease your score.
Clearing the Challenge before the 4:30 minute mark earns you an S rank.
|Infernal Crocell (x1)||68|
This level should be cleared before reaching the 2:00 mark. Focus on one Defensive/Onion, and immediately command all allies to focus it. All enemies can use Blow Down, so quickly eliminating them one by one can reduce the chance of them using that move. Only use arts when they have a bonus modifier to quickly increase your party gauge, and when it's full, quickly execute a Chain Attack.
Chain Attack moves for the first wave should consist of only physical arts to stack up its multiplier. Using multiple physical arts on a Max Multiplier can quickly dispatch enemies from the first wave. And when only one enemy remains, conserve your party gauge for the next wave.
|Revolutionary Bifrons (x1)||70|
Immediately use a Chain Attack on the Revolutionary Bifrons, and focus on Topple Locking it. The art order should be Stream Edge (to build up talent gauge and inflict break at the same time) - > Wild Down - > Air Fang (damage) - > Shaker Edge - > Shield Bash. If the Chain attack disconnects early, immediately switch to the lower level targets and build up your party gauge again.
Repeat this until you can topple lock Bifrons, and unleash hell upon it. It's possible to use at least 3 Chain Attacks (including the first one before Wave 2 starts) against the Revolutionary Bifrons. If all 3 chain attacks fail to topple lock the Revolutionary Bifrons, it's best to restart the level.
