Shaggy-dog Story (Restricted Mode) Tips and Strategies

Shaggy-dog Story General Tips

Shaggy-dog Story.jpg
Learning how to use Riki's arts properly is the key to getting a good rank in this challenge. He has several arts that offer little to no use at all. Avoid using Roly-Poly, You Can Do it (unless necessary), and Bedtime.

Avoid using Chain Attacks as well. With Sharla in your party, your Chain Attack's multiplier won't increase at all, and the lengthy animations will make your clear time slower.

Wave 1 Enemies and Strategies

Shaggy Dog Wave 1

Enemy (quantity) Level
Plasma Deinos (x2) 36
Terra Orluga (x1) 37

Focus on the Deinos, and rotate between using the arts Lurgy, Bitey Bitey, Sneaky, and Freezinate. If these arts are on cooldown, let Riki Autoattack to build up his talent gauge. Once both Deinos are down, use Yoink against the Orluga to weaken it and strengthen Riki at the same time for a faster clear speed.

Wave 2 Enemies and Strategies

Shaggy Wave 2

Enemy (quantity) Level
Inferno Deinos (x1) 38
Lupus Feris (x1) 38
Bosque Hode (x1) 38

No noteworthy enemies, so focus on any target. All enemies have a high HP pool, so just focus them one by one to end the fight. Make sure to avoid using Roly-Poly, Bedtime, and You can do it as to not slow down your clear time.
