|How to Unlock|
If you don't plan to have Shulk in your party, make sure to at least equip anti-mechon armor since all enemies in this challenge are mechons.
A heavy AOE setup is recommended for the fight. Anti Mechon Armor is also a plus but not entirely needed due to Shulk's Monado Enchant.
|Chain of Friendship||Increases the chance of a Chain Link (15%).||
Improving chances of Chain Links occuring is highly suggested, especially for Wave 2 where topple locking is needed.
|Shoulder to Shoulder||Heals the party after a chain attack (10%).||
|Friendship Heals||Heals the party slightly after a chain attack (5%).||
Healing is a godsend for a pure offensive Team. Not needing to spend time restoring your team's HP to resume assault is a great trait to have.
|Pretty Stars!||Increases strength during the night (15%).||
|Love Sun!||Reduces cooldown during the day (10%).||
Skills that boost stats based on time are great. They are cheaper in terms of Coin Cost than other stat boosting skills, and you only need to adjust the time to activate them. Just make sure to equip only one type of skill and adjust the time accordingly.
|Reckless Courage||Strength Up buff at start of battle with higher level enemies (20%, 30 sec).||
Skills that boost stats against higher leveled enemies are great if your character's levels are equal to the recommended level or lower. There are several skills like reckless courage but we highly suggest strength and agility boosting skills.
|Infernal Crocell (x1)||68|
Use Battle Start, then build Shulk's talent gauge (Battle Soul, Stream Edge), then use Monado Enchant to buff your ally's damage. Quickly fill the party gauge and talent gauge then use AOE offensive arts like Buster (Shulk), Soaring Tempest (Dunban), War Swing (Reyn).
|Revolutionary Bifrons (x1)||70|
Immediately use a Chain Attack (if available) against Bifrons and apply topple to it. Focus on Topple Locking Bifrons to quickly bring it down.
Do not use Purge on Bifrons! It will take a long time to use and it's effect is temporary.
Once it's toppled, give it everything you've got to complete the challenge.
